Review

' In short, The Book of Illusions is a stunning feat of imagination and likely the best book that Auster has written.' -- Financial Times

' The Book of Illusions is a masterpiece of storytelling - an astounding portrait of grief, as well as a convincing treatise on the redemptive power of art and laughter.' -- Time Out

'An elegant and enthralling new summit in Paul Auster's art.' -- Jonathan Lethem

'It is the kind of dexterity that has been delighting Auster's readership since his acclaimed 1987 debut The New York Trilogy...' -- Guardian

'This brilliant novel is compulsively told, by a narrator one imagines typing at night with a glass of bourbon to hand . . .' -- Spectator

'Through all its dark and delightful twists and turns, The Book of Illusions is suffused with warmth and illuminated by its narrator's hard-won wisdom.' -- Peter Carey

(Auster's) novels are worldy, finely tuned, elegant, knowingly self-referential. -- Observer, 28 September 2002

A stunning feat of imagination and likely the best book that Auster has written. -- Financial Times, 28 September 2002

This brilliant novel is compulsively told, spilled out, almost, by a narrator one imagines typing at night with a glass of bourbon to hand. -- Spectator, 3 October 2002

a masterpiece of storytelling - an astounding portrait of grief, as well as a convincing treatise on the redemptive power of art and laughter. -- Time Out, 25 September 2002
