A graphic novel classic with a new introduction by Art Spiegelman

Quinn writes mysteries. The Washington Post has described him as a “post-existentialist private eye.” An unknown voice on the telephone is now begging for his help, drawing him into a world and a mystery far stranger than any he ever created in print.

Adapted by Paul Karasik and David Mazzucchelli, with graphics by David Mazzucchelli, Paul Auster’s groundbreaking, Edgar Award-nominated masterwork has been astonishingly transformed into a new visual language.

Wow. I've enjoyed this book on so many levels. The comic book scholar in me got his money's worth and the philosopher of language woke up from a deep slumber. I'll have to read this one over; not because it's a particularly difficult read, but simply because I've enjoyed it so much.

this is a pretty good book, surprised it's on google books. never mind, very few parts of the book are revealed, but i highly recommend the book.
