Man In The Dark
Author: Paul Auster
Publisher: Picador USA
If you like the idea of reading a short novel and gaining insight into the human condition by the time you’ve finished reading, Paul Auster’s Man In The Dark is recommended.
Central character August Brill’s family has suffered terrible losses. Mr. Brill is a book critic, and an excellent storyteller. His creativity vents personal horror, and encourages a bond with his adult granddaughter.
I won’t say anything else about the characters or the story. Just read it and make your own observations.
