It is September 18, 1982, and for the next nine days Orr will live under the spell of this blank book, trapped inside a world of eerie premonitions and bewildering events that threaten to destroy his marriage and undermine his faith in reality. Paul Auster's mesmerizing eleventh novel reads like an old-fashioned ghost story. But there are no ghosts in this book - only flesh-and-blood human beings, wandering through the haunted realms of everyday life. "Oracle Night" is a narrative tour de force that confirms Auster's reputation as one of the boldest, most original writers at work in America today.Hide synopsis

let me start by saying i love paul auster. BUT, he is hit or miss for me. when i read one of his books (and i'm trying to get through all of them) he''s either dead on absolutely perfect one of the best books i've ever read - or - it's a zero, i dislike the characters, i dislike the story, and i'm actually mad at myself for having read it.... this one was NOT my favorite. i recommend the new york trilogy, or in the country of last things instead.
