The growing popularity of Paul Auster’:s oeuvre (bothliterary and cinematic) has called forth a greatnumber of critical interpretations, drawing attentionto the psychological, philosophical,historical-political facets of his fiction. The novelty of this book consists in that it containsfour essays put together eclectically, in order tooffer an insight in four different approaches on theabove mentioned topics. At the same time it presentsan interdisciplinary aspect of literature, as itconsiders many spheres which occur in Auster’:s work:relationship between film and literature, adaptationtheory, manifestations of the uncanny on narrativelevels, relation between the writing self and theurban space, and the deconstruction of popularAmerican myths. Thus, the present analysis addressesboth graduate and undergraduate students, and anyoneelse who may be interested in the fields of Americanliterature and film studies.
