PAUL AUSTER TALKS ABOUT LANGUAGE, LITERATURE AND LIFE
A fascinating discussion with one of America's greatest living writers, held over a 3 year period.
Paul Auster's A Life in Words is a remarkable candid and often surprising celebration of one writer s art, craft and life. It includes many revelations that have never been shared before, such as the fact he doesn't consider himself a postmodernist even though he is frequently labelled as one. This is a book that's full of surprises, composed of spoken words that sometimes jump off the page like a good drama.
The conversation between Auster and Siegumfeldt went on for 3 years, starting in 2011. All 21 of Auster's narrative works are covered, as well as all the themes and obsessions that drive Auster and his work.
