Format: Hardcover
"Winter Journal" is replete with Paul Auster's exceptional prose; a memoir that will remind his most devoted fans of his fiction. However, for those seeking to understand his literary craft, they won't find it in this mercifully terse memoir. In a year that has seen the publication of very good to great autobiographical essay collections from the likes of Rick Moody ("On Celestial Music: And Other Adventures in Listening") and William Gibson ("Distrust That Particular Flavor"), "Winter's Journal" reads as a work of nonfiction in which the author seems more intent in displaying his literary craft, not in offering readers something fascinating and profound of note with regards to understanding that author's entire body of work. Both Moody and Gibson's recently published books give readers ample opportunities to understand them both as people and as writers; instead, I think some will be as bewildered as I was upon finishing "Winter Journal", which I must regard as an enigmatic work of nonfiction written by someone often hailed as among our finest contemporary American writers of fiction. In stark contrast with Auster, I have derived better understanding of the personal motivation behind the literary craft of writers as diverse as Michael Chabon ("Maps and Legends"), Jonathan Franzen ("The Discomfort Zone"), and Pete Hamill ("A Drinking Life"), as well as Rick Moody and William Gibson, from reading their memoirs and nonfiction.Read more ›

Very free prose, somewhat different from his fictional work, but at the same time one could see how he drew his experiences from his life into his mainstream work, how his real life is as exciting as the lives of the protagonists in his novels.

I have all of Auster's novels on my shelf and have enjoyed them all greatly, but I believe this one 'Winter Journal' is his masterpiece. I know i will read it again and again.

I have never read Paul Auster before so have nothing in his writings to compare it to. I thoroughly enjoyed it. His sparse prose has no wasted words yet to me was filled with emotion. Using his residences over the years as an entrance into different periods of his life was a very successful device.

I just love this author. I had the pleasure to listen to the Paul Auster reading this novel (available on Audible) and it was moving and beautiful as he is simply human, with memoires that are both personal to him and yet so common to all human beings.
