Auster's second novel is the most ill-fitting in his body of work but also one of his more enjoyable. In an unnamed city, Auster's protagonist struggles to overcome increasinlgy difficult (possibly dystopian?) hurdles. It is a fully realized feat of imagination that takes hold of the reader from page one and absolutely refuses to let go.
