Paul Auster in Conversation with Rebecca Brown

Thirty years after his moving meditation on fatherhood, Auster has written a second unconventional memoir, about his mother’s life and death. Facing his 63rd winter, the bestselling novelist bookends The Invention of Solitude with the new Winter Journal, a highly personal history of time, language, memory, and his body and its sensations—both pleasurable and painful. “That is where the story begins, in your body,” writes Auster; “and everything will end in the body as well.” Author Rebecca Brown, herself eloquent in that notion, in memoir and other relevant themes, interviews Auster after a short reading. Presented as part of the Town Hall Arts and Culture series, with Elliott Bay Book Company.
