Had I been more alert to what was going on, I might have wondered about this, especially after Zimmer told me the story of how I had been rescued.

By Paul Auster Illustrated by Grez. Category: Literary Fiction. Marco Stanley Fogg is an orphan, a child of the sixties, a quester tirelessly seeking the key to his past, the answers to the ultimate riddle of his fate. As Marco journeys from the canyons of Manhattan to the deserts of Utah, he encounters a gallery of characters and a series of events as rich and surprising as any in modern fiction.

Paul Auster, quote from Moon Palace. No one was to blame for what happened, but that does not make it any less difficult to accept. It was all a matter of missed connections, bad timing, blundering in the dark. A series of lost chances. All the pieces were there from the beginning, but no one knew how to put them together. Paul Auster, quote from Moon Palace. I felt the taste of mortality in my mouth, and at that moment I understood that I was not going to live forever. It takes a long time to learn that, but when you finally do, everything changes inside you, you can never be the same again.

Moon Palace, Paul Auster. Paul Auster began as a poet, essayist, anthologist and translator, but since City of Glass (1985) he’s been recognized above all for being one of our most spare, lucid and elegant novelists.

Marco Fogg’s young life is steeped in tragedy and loss. His beginnings are fraught with misfortune and unlikely survival. His destiny seems directed by circumstance and coincidence as three generations meld with the present. Auster is a master storyteller, taking us on a spellbinding adventure as Marco pieces together his past so that he can ultimately see the possibility of a future.

I love this book. I follow the writings of this great american author. The adventures of the young protagonist takes us through many chapters of american history until our times with stories full of adventure and tender moments . The main character , young Fogg and his way of life teaches us the conflicts of a boy with a very difficult life and how he pulls off to take control and mainly being true to himself.
I recommend this reading.

Auster is a master at depicting the lowest level of the human condition. He does so here again, as he did in his non-fiction book, "Hand to Mouth." Auster understands penury and desolation as only those who have been there do. This understanding is truly because he has been there himself; and speaks from personal experience.

The book is one of redemption. Can one who has sunk to the level of sleeping on the ground in Central Park and eating other people's garbage lift themselves back up to a normal or even successful life? The answer to the question is illustrated by Auster along with his other grand theme of "Coincidence."

Auster actually exaggerates coincidence in his book, when he connects 3 characters through accidents of birth. All three of them are blood relatives and none of them knew this fact. All three of them found each other purely through coincidental means. For this to happen randomly is so improbably it would be ridiculous to try to calculate it. But Auster makes it seem almost a natural event, one that had to occur with surety.

Ultimately, Auster leaves us in a place that is not perfect, much more realistic, and not horrible. It is a place more or less familiar to us. It is a place more or less like real life. The book is Auster in a great expository period and it is recommended to ALL readers.

I have been aching for a book so beautifully written. I ate it up, every word, even highlighting some of the deep philosophical points that I thought I just couldn't part with. The characters are magnificent but I do have my favorite (Effing). The main character is tiresome with his self pity and stubbornness but you grow to understand him more and he grows on you like an old friend with all the flaws. I didn't think I would be a fan of stories where "everything is connected" but its so unpredictable and mesmerizing. I can't wait to read more of this authors work.

I am still only 95% through this wonderful story. I don't want to finish it. But I can't wait to see what happens to Fogg. I love Effing and Kitty and Uncle Victor. It is absolutely wonderful. I think this is the third book of Auster's that I've read--by far my favorite. And I enjoyed them all.
  • Axebourne
I really like Astor's voice and enjoyed this book.
  • Cells
Kind of slow at some point, but pretty good. Although Auster has a unique style and feeling, be careful and don't read many Auster's books in a row: you might get a Paul Auster overdose.
Intersecting, surprising sorry that interacts at many levels.
