Winter JournalBook - 2012
From the bestselling novelist and author of The Invention of Solitude , a moving and highly personal meditation on the body, time, and language itself
" That is where the story begins, in your body, and everything will end in the body as well.
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.
