About the Book

Winter Journal

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.
