A story in two different ways.
Paul's story:Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
It all began in 1974 when he came back in the United States. He tells how he got the typewriter, why - later on - he didn't buy an electric typewriter nor a computer like everybody else nowadays. Finally we learn how Sam Messer met the typewriter and how a relationship grew between these two.
The illustrations of Sam Messer are the most attractive part of this book. They are not really illustrations but tell a second story of their own.The story of an old and hard working typewriter, battered by the fingers of Paul Auster. A typewriter that suffers pain, hardship and gets angry once in a while.
To be honest: this book is a book of art and almost all the credits go to Sam Messer. A must !
