“PAUL AUSTER’S thirty-year career has been astonishing…novels, screenplays, poems, essays, illustrated tales, translations, scholarly editions of French verse. He seems almost a literary decathlete, able to excel in any genre,” writes The Plain Dealer. Auster—author of more than 30 books translated into 40 languages—is, according to The Providence Journal, “without doubt one of the most talented and affecting American writers working today.” His New York Trilogy won the Prix France Culture de Littérature Étrangère, and he received the Prix Médicis Étranger for his seventh novel Leviathan. His other major works of fiction include The Book of Illusions, Timbuktu, Mr. Vertigo, Oracle Night, The Brooklyn Follies, Travels in the Scriptorium, Man in the Dark, Invisible, Sunset Park, and Day/Night, and his nonfiction includes The Invention of Solitude and his latest, A Life in Words: In Conversation with I. B. Siegumfeldt, which comes out in October. Among his screenplays is Smoke, and he has written and directed four films. His French translations include works by Mallarmé, Sartre, and Blanchot. In 2006, he was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Letters. Auster will read from his newest novel 4 3 2 1, a New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and Boston Globe bestseller and longlisted for the 2017 Man Booker Prize. The Toronto Star calls it “wonderfully clever…. a heartfelt and engaging piece of storytelling that unflinchingly explores the 20th century American experience in all its honor and ignominy. This is, without doubt, Auster’s magnum opus.”

Reading followed by an on-stage interview, book sale and signing.
