I like Auster's early novels, but this slice of memoir just moved me so much, as a daughter who lost her father when she was young, the mystery of absence that he speaks about and how you try to compensate in your own kid's lives is amazing.

i was completely surprised to read and find myself over and over again in this book. it s almost as if i had written it myself! i think it is a wonderful material to reflect upon our lives and closest family and how we relate to them. and also about never having met your own father. i just felt completely identified!!!

This is such a touching recollection of our roles in life. Being a daughter, myself, I connected with Auster the son and further more about myself as a person through theraputic writting inspired by this novel. Easy to read, hard to understand, what a lovely combination. Need a break of relfection? Read this book and be blown away!

They sent the wrong book. Just found out, having just moved and unpacked the package - have to contact them to rectify the situation.
