Read in April, 2009

I found this on my library's New Books shelf, and though I'm deeply ensnared with George Eliot right now, I've had some experience with Paul Auster and had a pretty good guess that I'd be able to read this quickly. And behold, seven hours later (with a few breaks for making dinner and futzing around on the computer) I turned the last page. Like Austers' other novels this one was dark and twisted and suspenseful. Unlike his others, the plot to this one was thin as gruel, and all the many subplots branching off like hairline fissures did little to disguise the fact. For the amount of time I spent on it, however, it was well worth it, and my loyalty to Auster remains pretty much fully intact.
