Paul Auster

For some reason I woke up thinking about him this morning.

I was on a real Paul Auster reading kick when I lived here in Taiwan, starting with Leviathan. Then I read so many of his books so quickly in a row that they all kind of got mushed together in my mind. But he is a fabulous story teller.

And his autobiography Hand to Mouth: A Chronicle of Early Failures is entertaining and inspiring.

All art is only done by the individual. The individual is all you ever have, and all schools only serve to classify their members as failures. E.H.
