Travels in the Scriptorium

Travels in the Scriptorium

Auster Paul

Following the huge success of The Brooklyn Follies, Paul Auster offers a novel that is a dark puzzle: a game implicating both reader and writer, and an ingenious exploration of language and time. An old man sits in a room, with a single door and window, a bed, a desk and a chair.

Each day he awakes with no memory, unsure of whether or not he is locked into the room. Attached to the few objects around him are one-word, hand-written labels and on the desk is a series of vaguely familiar black-and-white photographs and four piles of paper. Then a middle-aged woman called Anna enters and talks of pills and treatment, but also of love and promises. Who is this ‘Mr Blank’, and what is his fate? What does Anna represent from his past - and will he have enough time to ever make sense of the clues that arise?
