Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Paul Austers Hand to Mouth: A Chronicle of Early Failure is a fascinating and often funny memoir about his early years as a writer struggling to be published, and to make enough money to survive. Leaving high school with “itchy feet” and refusing to play it safe, Auster avoided convention and the double life of steady office employment while writing. From the streets of New York City, Dublin, and Paris to a surreal adventure in a dusty village in Mexico, Austers account of living on next to nothing introduces an unforgettable cast of characters while examining what it means to be a writer.
