Description
Sinuously constructed in four interlocking parts, Paul Auster's 15th novel opens in New York City in the spring of 1967, when Columbia University student and aspiring poet Adam Walker meets the enigmatic Frenchman Rudolf Born and his silent, seductive girlfriend Margot. Walker soon finds himself caught in a perverse triangle that leads to a sudden, shocking act of violence that changes the course of his life. Three different narrators tell the story over the next 40 years, moving from Morningside Heights to the Left Bank of Paris, and a remote island in the Caribbean. In a book of youthful rage, unbridled sexual hunger, and a relentless quest for justice, Auster takes us into the shadowy borderland between truth and memory, between authorship and identity.

"Invisible contains many of the hallmarks of Auster's trade: formal literary devices and stylistic high jinks, psychological depth, elegant prose, and the manipulation of information, voices, and stories. Told against the background of 40 years of history, with shame and colonial guilt ever present, Invisible feels 'warmer and more human than the stuff he's famous for' (San Francisco Chronicle) as well as less contrived and more hopeful. Indeed, notes the New York Times Book Review, it's 'a love story, or a series of intertwined love stories,' with Walker at the core.... Most [critics] agreed that Invisible is Auster's finest—and perhaps most accessible—novel to date."—Bookmarks Magazine
