The New York Trilogy
Illustrated by Tom Burns
Introduced by Benjamin Markovits
Set in a distinctly noir New York, these three hugely influential and ground-breaking stories unnervingly meld fiction and reality.
Paul Auster's New York Trilogy brings to life a distinctly noir cityscape, where fiction and reality meld unnervingly. Skewing the conventions of the mystery genre, Auster questions the very nature of identity, as his page-turning narratives lead the reader on through increasingly labyrinthine mind games.
