THE NEW YORK TRILOGY - Paul Auster
This is three stories loosely tied together, all set out as a detective tales but they are not detective tales. This took me a bit of reading before I figured it out.
The three stories are about the art of writing, they are all concerned with observation , obsession and dedication to a task.
I very nearly stopped half way through the first story but the writing has a cadence to it that was very relaxing, it just wandered along. I assume those that really know call this experimental writing stream of consciousness stuff.
I'm struggling to describe what it is but I enjoyed it in the end even if I haven't fully understood it all.
