I read this book when the VPL was back on Burrard street and distinctly remember bothering some poor librarian with vague descriptions - "uhhhh... I know it has the word moon in it and uhh.. the author's a guy and uhhh... I think he's a New York writer..." until she managed to come up with a few for me to choose from.
I read this book at a perfect time in my life and (without spoiling things too much) the scene where he's carrying a single egg has stayed with me since then. I burned through all of Austers work after that until I hit Timbuktu, at which point I gave up on him.
If you've never read Paul Auster, this book's as good a place as any to get started. He's a fine author to be sure - but I've moved on...
