City of Glass: The Graphic Novel

Front Cover
Picador, Apr 1, 2010 - Comics & Graphic Novels - 144 pages
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.

I consider "City of Glass" to be one of the most nonsensical book I’ve ever read. Apart from the occasional interesting scene, this was on the whole a tedious web of confusion. Read full review

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.
