    The Book of Illusions MOBI ☆ The Book ePUB Æ book epub, illusions mobile, The Book kindle, The Book of Illusions PDFBorn Again and Longing for It All to EndI’m guessing but I don’t think this book was ever seriously edited It appears to have been written in a continuous stream not of consciousness but of wherever Austen’s characters wanted to take him at the moment to extricate themselves from frequent literary culs de sac And this includes an immense amount of random detail of relevance to neither the plot nor the characters The result is a fair short story imitating a rather bad middling size novelOne important thing happens in the entire book the accidental death of a young woman The plot revolves around this death but on threads which seem to be thrown aimlessly into narrative space The narrator a widowed academic whose main aim i

    The Book of Illusions MOBI ☆ The Book ePUB Æ book epub, illusions mobile, The Book kindle, The Book of Illusions PDFAfter having lost his wife and children in a plane crash writer and teacher David Zimmer is on a path of self destruction drinking behaving badly around people rejecting any and all understanding and sympathy But seeing a bit of silent film comedy on TV he takes up the task of examining and writing a book about the work of one comedic genius from the 20’s Soon after the book is published the wife of the supposedly dead film maker contacts Zimmer to ask if he might like to meet the man himself There is much parallelism here Zimmer with both Hector Mann the ancient film maker and Chateaubriand the author of a lengthy autobiography that Zimme

    The Book of Illusions MOBI ☆ The Book ePUB Æ book epub, illusions mobile, The Book kindle, The Book of Illusions PDFBy reading this book I have become a die hard Auster fan The man is amazing So clever so imaginitive so poetic and almost profound This book rambles and in doing so touches on so many intertwined narratives that one almost gives up on what was assumed to be the original plot and assumes the opening catch phrase was just another Paul Auster smoke screen story line But this one even in creating such an intricatedly woven network of a charact
