The Book of Illusions

My literary thought for the day:

I always considered Paul Auster to be overrated. While I loved his last novel (Timbuktu), I didn't think it was far beyond the abilities of many other contemporary writers. However Auster's latest, The Book Of Illusions, is a masterpiece. Auster does more with 300 pages than most authors could do with a thousand.
