City of Glass

I read Paul Auster’s City of Glass on my home from Alaska last month and was struck by all of the different elements he writes about like mysticism, the nature of fiction and fluidity of identity. One of the most stimulating passages is when the main character, under the guise of a hard private detective, enters the home of his mysterious client. The book really starts here for me, feeling like the protagonist was entering a new world that he himself was not a part of.

I hope to flesh this out into a full piece soon.
