The Red Notebook (New Directions Pearls)by Paul Auster
Synopses & Reviews
k stories, pulled from Auster's own life or from the lives of those close to him, are explorations of unexpected coincidences. A wrong number becomes the genesis for a famous novel; a hero appears at an inopportune moment; a lightning storm harries a group of campers; a daughter plunges from a terrifying height only to land improbably safely; a Paul Auster imposter materializes. Like a magic show, demonstrates that "there is much to life that is special and serendipitous — if only we allow ourselves to perceive it this way" ().
Truth is stranger than fiction, and chronicles Auster's own strange"true stories"
