'That is how it works in the City. Every time you think you know the answer to a question, you discover that the question makes no sense . . .'
This is the story of Anna Blume and her journey to find her lost brother, William, in the unnamed City. Like the City itself, however, it is a journey that is doomed, and so all that is left is Anna's written account of what happened.
For In the Country of Last Things Paul Auster takes us to an unspecified and devastated world in which the self disappears amidst the horrors that surround it. But this is not just an imaginary, futuristic world, it is a world that echoes our own, and in doing so addresses some of our darker legacies.Reseña del editor:
In this novel Paul Auster offers a haunting picture of a devastated world - a futuristic world - but one which may be seen to shadow our own. Auster's other work includes "The New York Trilogy" and "Hand to Mouth", and the screenplays "Smoke" and "Blue in the Face".
