9781250009098: Winter Journal

"That is where the story begins, in your body and everything will end in the body as well."
On January 3, 2011, exactly one month before his sixty-fourth birthday, internationally acclaimed novelist Paul Auster sat down and wrote the first entry of Winter Journal, his unorthodox, beautifully wrought examination of his own life, as seen through the history of his body. Auster takes us from childhood to the brink of old age as he summons forth a universe of physical sensation, of pleasures and pains, moving from the awakening of sexual desire as an adolescent to the ever deepening bonds of married love, from meditations on eating and sleeping to the "scalding, epiphanic moment of clarity" in 1978 that set him on a new course as a writer.

Review:

Amazon Best Books of the Month, August 2012: At nearly 64, one of our greatest modern writers is feeling his age. In his quietly transfixing new memoir, Winter Journal, Paul Auster meditates on what it means for his mind, body, and creativity to experience the unforgiving passage of time. This should be--and is--an intensely personal chronicle, but Auster makes the journey equally ours by inviting us into its unfolding. "No doubt you are a flawed and wounded person," he cautions, and suddenly you are. You are the player in this story: running away from your pregnant mother in a department store; learning to wrangle your adolescent hormones; taking an "inventory of your scars, in particular the ones on your face"; marveling at the beauty of your wife as she sleeps; moving in and out of 21 homes, recalling their addresses and aesthetics in astonishing detail. "Writing begins in the body, it is the music of the body," Auster notes. With Winter Journal, he reminds us that it is also the joyful, then melancholy, then reluctantly accepting soundtrack of our full and finite lives. --Mia Lipman

Descripción Estado de conservación: New. Publisher/Verlag: Macmillan US | Discusses the life and death of the author's mother and the effects of time and aging on one's body and memory, and reflects on the changes in sensory perception as the body ages. | Dies ist ein ungewöhnliches, überraschendes Buch: eine Lebensbeichte ganz aus der Warte des Körpers. Man kommt darin dem Schriftsteller Paul Auster sehr nahe, aber auch und vor allem dem Mann an der Schwelle zum Alter. Paul Auster spricht aus, was sein Körper und seine Glieder im Verlauf eines langen Lebens getan haben. Er sinniert über die unendliche Empfindlichkeit jenes physischen Systems, das uns am Leben erhält und über das wir so wenig nachdenken, solange es funktioniert. Er lässt seine Liebesbeziehungen Revue passieren: viele zunächst und dann - dreißig Jahre lang - nur noch eine, die große Liebe. Die Kinder, ihr Aufwachsen, ihre Selbständigkeit. Die Blessuren, die Krankheiten, einige Begegnungen mit dem Tod: ein Sturz als Junge, eine Herzattacke, ein Autounfall. Alkohol, Zigarillos, Süchte - all die Versuchungen, das System des Körpers auszutricksen, sich dem Verfall, dem Alltag zu entziehen ."Winterjournal" ist eine emotional mitreißende, einen mit den ersten Zeilen packende Autobiographie, aber keine konventionelle, sondern höchste literarische Kunst: voll philosophischer Betrachtungen, poetischer Impressionen und intimer Einsichten - in Paul Austers persönlichen Arbeiten nach "Die Erfindung der Einsamkeit" ein weiterer Höhepunkt. | Format: Paperback | Language/Sprache: english | 208 gr | 212x209x16 mm | 230 pp. Nº de ref. de la librería K9781250009098
