Revue de presse
• "An incandescent memoir..... In turns contemplative, pugnacious, and achingly tender.... A profoundly beautiful book.... Unstinting passion ... consummate humanity... grace in the unexpected...." - Washington Post
• "Brief episodes falling like snow outside his Brooklyn window, forming in a collage a portrait of the artist as a young, aging and now old man. Some of these episodes will remain with the reader, like memories of one's own." - Globe and Mail
• "Auster's ruminations on death, family, memory, and marriage are both poignant and delightful." - The New Yorker

Présentation de l'éditeur
Facing his sixty-fifth 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.
