Editorial Reviews:
Review:

"It's a kind of seduction to dizzy the reader the way Auster does, layering, intermingling and cross-referencing the many stories....[B]ut the entire whirligig might lift right off the page altogether if it were not for a persistent melancholy so subtle it could almost be overlooked....[A] seemingly abstract panic...suffuses ORACLE NIGHT and, paradoxically, gives it its lifeblood. Without this anxiety, ORACLE NIGHT would be a cool game, but it succeeds as something much richer precisely because it acknowledges, constantly, the possibility of its own failure."

Stacey D'Erasmo, New York Times Book Review, 11/30/2003

Review:

"What saves Auster's story from ponderousness is the sheer verve with which he follows his narrator through the labyrinthine plot....[H]he shines as a fabulist and tale-teller...."

New Yorker, 01/12/2004

Book Description: St Martin s Press, United States, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 208 x 140 mm. Brand New Book. Several months into his recovery from a near-fatal illness, thirty-four-year-old novelist Sidney Orr enters a stationery shop in the Cobble Hill section of Brooklyn and buys a blue notebook. It is September 18, 1982, and for the next nine days Orr will live under the spell of this blank book, trapped inside a world of eerie premonitions and bewildering events that threaten to destroy his marriage and undermine his faith in reality. A novel that expands to fill volumes in the reader s mind, Oracle Night is a beautifully constructed meditation on time, love, storytelling, and the imagination by one of the great writers of our time ( San Francisco Chronicle ).
