New Release (Non-Fiction)
'That is where the story begins, in your body, and everything will end in the body as well.'He moves through the events of his life in a random series of memories grasped from the point of view of his life now: playing baseball as a teenager; participating in the anti-Vietnam demonstrations at Columbia University; almost killing his second wife and child in a car accident; falling in and out of love with his first wife.
Facing his sixty-third winter, internationally acclaimed novelist Paul Auster sits down to write a history of his body and its sensations - both pleasurable and painful.
Thirty years after the publication of ‘The Invention of Solitude’, in which he wrote so movingly about fatherhood, Auster gives us a second unconventional memoir in which he writes about his mother's life and death. ‘Winter Journal’ is a highly personal meditation on the body, time, and memory, by one of our most intellectually elegant writers.
In ‘Winter Journal’, Auster presents the abandonment of the family by his father from his mother's point of view: her struggle as a single mother; love found again late in life, a love that was short-lived; her troubled later years and, finally, her death - and the subsequent anxiety attacks Auster suffered in the face of her death.
