A fascinating discussion with one of America's greatest living writers about language, literature, and life.
Paul Auster's A Life In Words a wide-ranging dialogue between Auster and the Danish professor I. B. Siegumfeldt is a remarkably 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 that 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 good drama.
The conversations between Auster and Siegumfeldt went on for three years, starting in 2011, and continuing after there was a complete draft in revisions and further conversations that went on until now. All 21 of Auster's narrative works are covered as well as all the themes and obsessions that drive the work, and the man.
