Paul Auster, the well-known author of works blending absurdism and crime fiction, is a whole lot like Brooklyn. Like the borough he calls home, his work is very diverse. He has written critically-acclaimed books, including recent titles like The Brooklyn Follies and Oracle Night. He directed the film The Inner Life of Martin Frost, for which he also wrote the screenplay. He even had a cameo in the 1993 film version of his novel, The Music of Chance, starring James Spader and Mandy Pitinkin.
Auster will be at Central Library’s Dweck Center on Saturday, April 12, at 2 PM. WNYC’s Leonard Lopate will interview him as Auster reads from his new book, Man in the Dark, which is due out in August.
Check out other great upcoming events at the Dweck. And feel free to comment and share with fellow blog readers what you think of Paul Auster's work.
