9780571227303: In the Country of Last Things

In this compelling audio, the masses are homeless, theft is so rampant it is no longer a crime, and death--by arranging either suicide or assassination--is the only way out. Anne Blume comes to an unnamed city in search of her brother and finds friendship--and even love--in this devastated world. 2 cassettes.

About the Author:

Paul Auster is the bestselling author of The New York Trilogy and many other critically acclaimed novels. He was awarded the Prince of Asturias Prize in 2006. His work has been translated into more than forty languages. He lives in Brooklyn, New York.

From AudioFile:

Vanessa Redgrave is not so much an actress as a force of nature; her screen presence radiates a disturbing potency impossible to ignore. Here she reins it in to deliver an appropriately detached portrayal of a sheltered young Jewess cast on her own devices in a nightmarish world of terror and entropy. While playing against the unremitting horror of the first-person narration, she vividly impersonates the characters in dialogue scenes. If she errs, it's by relying on her overflowing treasure chest of technique instead of penetrating Auster's novel to its depths. Y.R. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine

Descripción FABER FABER, United Kingdom, 2005. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Main. Language: English . Brand New Book. 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 unwritten account of what happened.Paul Auster takes us to an unspecified and devastated world in which the self disappears amidst the horrors that surround us. But this is not just an imaginary, futuristic world: like the settings of Kafka stories, it is one that echoes our own, and in doing so addresses some of our darker legacies. In the Country of Last Things is a tense, psychological take on the dystopian novel. It continues Auster s deep exploration of his central themes: the modern city, the mysteries of storytelling, and the elusive and unstable nature of truth. Nº de ref. de la librería LIB9780571227303
