    Facing his 63rd 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.

    Diane says: "Memorable"
    "Paul Auster at his best."

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Winter Journal the most enjoyable?

    A sensuous and entertaining memoir. I love Paul Auster's fiction, and here he brings his great storytelling talent and wit to his own life. He describes moments that we can all identify with, and makes them so immediate and real that you feel as though you have experienced them yourself. Human. Real. He makes the mundane fascinating.


    What other book might you compare Winter Journal to and why?

    Though this is a work of nonfiction, it has a similar feel to Auster's books, Oracle Night, and Book of Illusions.


    Which character – as performed by Paul Auster – was your favorite?

    Paul has read most of his recent books. I love his voice and the cadence of his speech. Lovely to listen to.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When he was so thrilled that his mother had hit a home run when playing with his boy scout troop.


    Any additional comments?

    A very pleasurable listen.
