LoveReading View on Invisible

A coming-of-age story in four interlocking parts by three different narrators, a tale of sex and obsession.

 

September 2010 Guest Editor Belle de Jour on Paul Auster...

Auster is a bit of a Marmite – he puts himself fearlessly into everything and you either love that or you hate it. I love it, the endless re-examination of the writer as a character. While I could recommend loads of his books I prefer to think of them as a body of work, with the permutations of facets of personality that you recognise again and again in his work.

Sarah Broadhurst

Invisible Synopsis

Sinuously constructed in four interlocking parts, Invisible opens in New York City in the spring of 1967 when twenty-year-old Adam Walker, an aspiring poet and student at Columbia University meets the enigmatic Frenchman Rudolf Born, and his silent and seductive girlfriend Margot. Before long, Walker finds himself caught in a perverse triangle that leads to a sudden, shocking act of violence that will alter the course of his life. Three different narrators tell the story, as it travels in time from 1967 to 2007 and moves from New York to Paris and to a remote Caribbean island in a story of unbridled sexual hunger and a relentless quest for justice. With uncompromising insight, Auster takes us to the shadowy borderland between truth and memory, authorship and identity to produce a work of unforgettable power that confirms his reputation as one of America's most spectacularly inventive writers.
