Born February 3, 1947 in Newark, New Jersey, Paul Benjamin Auster is one of the most talented and prolific writers of the past thirty years. He is the author of seventeen novels, five works of nonfiction, three poetry collections, and five screenplays (which he also co-directed), as well as the editor of I Thought My Father Was God and Other True Tales from NPR's National Story Project (later republished under the title True Tales of American Life). He is also responsible for six translations of works in French, including - in collaboration with Lydia Davis - Life/Situations, a collection of essays by Jean-Paul Sartre. Here, we celebrate Paul and his work in a format the man himself will never, ever see.
