Descripción Picador USA, United States, 2009. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Reprint. 203 x 137 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. A Washington Post Best Book of the Year Man in the Dark is an undoubted pleasure to read. Auster really does possess the wand of the enchanter. --Michael Dirda, The New York Review of Books From a literary original ( The Wall Street Journal ) comes a book that forces us to confront the blackness of night even as it celebrates the existence of ordinary joys in a world capable of the most grotesque violence. Seventy-two-year-old August Brill is recovering from a car accident at his daughter s house in Vermont. When sleep refuses to come, he lies in bed and tells himself stories, struggling to push back thoughts about things he would prefer to forget: his wife s recent death and the horrific murder of his granddaughter s boyfriend, Titus. The retired book critic imagines a parallel world in which America is not at war with Iraq but with itself. In this other America the twin towers did not fall and the 2000 election results led to secession, as state after state pulled away from the union and a bloody civil war ensued. As the night progresses, Brill s story grows increasingly intense, and what he is desperately trying to avoid insists on being told. Nº de ref. de la librería AAS9780312428518

Descripción Picador USA. Paperback / softback. Estado de conservación: new. BRAND NEW, Man in the Dark, Paul Auster, A "Washington Post "Best Book of the Year""Man in the Dark" is an undoubted pleasure to read. Auster really does possess the wand of the enchanter."--Michael Dirda, "The New York Review of Books"From a "literary original" ("The Wall Street Journal") comes a book that forces us to confront the blackness of night even as it celebrates the existence of ordinary joys in a world capable of the most grotesque violence. Seventy-two-year-old August Brill is recovering from a car accident at his daughter's house in Vermont. When sleep refuses to come, he lies in bed and tells himself stories, struggling to push back thoughts about things he would prefer to forget: his wife's recent death and the horrific murder of his granddaughter's boyfriend, Titus. The retired book critic imagines a parallel world in which America is not at war with Iraq but with itself. In this other America the twin towers did not fall and the 2000 election results led to secession, as state after state pulled away from the union and a bloody civil war ensued. As the night progresses, Brill's story grows increasingly intense, and what he is desperately trying to avoid insists on being told. Paul Auster is the bestselling author of "The Book of Illusions," and "The New York Trilogy," among many other works. In 2006 he was awarded The Prince of Asturias Prize for Literature and inducted into the American Academy of Arts and Letters. Among his other honors are the Independent Spirit Award for the screenplay of "Smoke" and the Prix Medicis etranger for "Leviathan." He has also been short-listed for the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award ("The Book of Illusions"), the PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction ("The Music of Chance"), and the Edgar Award ("City of Glass"). His work has been translated into thirty-five languages. He lives in Brooklyn, New York. Longlisted for the International IMPAC Literary Award A work of fiction with a dark political twist, Paul Auster's "Man in the Dark "speaks to the realities that America inhabits as wars flame around the world. Seventy-two-year-old August Brill is recovering from a car accident in his daughter's house in Vermont. When sleep refuses to come, he lies in bed and tells himself stories, struggling to push back thoughts about things he would prefer to forget--his wife's recent death and the horrific murder of his granddaughter's boyfriend, Titus. The retired book critic imagines a parallel world in which America is not at war with Iraq but with itself. In this other America the twin towers did not fall and the 2000 election results led to secession, as state after state pulled away from the union and a bloody civil war ensued. As the night progresses, Brill's story grows increasingly intense, and what he is so desperately trying to avoid insists on being told. Joined in the early hours by his granddaughter, he gradually opens up to her and recounts the story of his marriage. After she falls asleep, he at last finds the courage to revisit the trauma of Titus's death. "This is perhaps Auster's best book . . . "Man In The Dark" is so unlike anything Auster has ever written that it doesn't make sense to compare it with his earlier work . . . Here we have multiple worlds and three generations . . . Auster's book leaves one with a depth of feeling much larger than might be expected from such a small and concise work of art."--Stephen Elliott, "San Francisco Chronicle" "'I am alone in the dark, turning the world around in my head as I struggle through another bout of insomnia, another white night in the great American wilderness.' That's the first line from Paul Auster's new novel, "Man in the Dark," and in some ways it's a perfect opening, as accurate as anything in describing the world, or worlds, you'll encounter over the coming 180 pages, a world turning in the head of Auster's 72-year-old everyman, August Brill. Auster has captivated generations of readers with his expansive imaginatio. Nº de ref. de la librería B9780312428518
