In his latest novel, the mostly hopeful story of a dying man trying to make sense of his life, Paul Auster ditches his usual formalism in favour of creating engaging characters.

  • Would really love to talk about the Auster book.

    You made a point about subjectivity, youth and old age and how difficult it is to see ourselves.

    Given that the characters may be engaging, how does it help or hurt?
