Synopses & Reviews
Most commercial novel yet from the author of "The New York Trilogy". Sophisticated new package including backlist, to take Auster to an even wider readership. London Underground poster campaign. Broadsheet advertising. "An avalanche of incident, of sex, suicide and murder...compulsively exhilarating" "Independent".
This novel plunges the reader into a universe in which the comic, the tragic, the real and the imagined dissolve into one another. One man's obsession with the mysterious life of a silent film star takes him on a journey into a shadow world of lies, illusions and unexpected love.
