From the bestselling novelist and author of The Invention of Solitude, a moving and highly personal meditation on the body, time, and language itself "That is where the story begins, in your body, and everything will end in the body as well. Facing his sixty-third winter, internationally acclaimed novelist Paul Auster sits down to write a history of his body and its sensations-both pleasurable and painful. Thirty years after the publication of The Invention of Solitude, in which he wrote so movingly about fatherhood, Auster gives us a second unconventional memoir in which he writes about his mother's life and death. Winter Journal is a highly personal meditation on the body, time, and memory, by one of our most intellectually elegant writers.

"Paul Auster's narration quickly engages the listener as he shares this very personal examination of his life. He effectively modulates pitch and tone as he recounts milestones and victories with an audible smile and sadly reflects upon tragedies and losses. His pacing varies appropriately from brisk to pensive, and his pleasing baritone adds an extra layer of richness to the presentation. Listener's familiar with the author's previous body of work will recognize his trademark quirkiness and highly individual style. The entries, which follow a loose chronology, display the stream of consciousness typically employed when writing entries in one's diary. Hearing these reminiscences and musings in the author's own voice enhances the intimacy and authenticity of this enjoyable listening experience. M.O.B. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
