Auggie Wren's Christmas Story

Auggie Wren's Christmas Story

Auster Paul

Paul Auster’s charming Christmas fable has found newlife in this beautifully illustrated edition. It begins with a dilemma: a writer has been asked by the New York Times to produce a story that will appear in the paper on Christmas morning.

The man agrees, but he has a problem: how do you write an unsentimental Christmas story? He unburdens himself to his friend at the local cigar shop, a colourful character called Auggie Wren. ‘A Christmas story? Is that all?’ says Auggie, before striking a deal. For the price of lunch he’ll pass on ‘the best Christmas story you’ve ever heard. And I guarantee every word of it is true.’ What follows is utterly beguiling, a story - involving a blind woman, a lost wallet and a Christmas dinner - in which everything is turned upside down.
