Facing his sixty-fifth 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.
Paul Auster is the bestselling author of Sunset Park, Invisible, Man in the Dark, The Book of Illusions, and The New York Trilogy, among many other works. His books have been translated into forty-three languages. He lives in Brooklyn, New York.
