City of Glass. Paul Auster
City of Glass. Paul Auster | Paul Karasik
In the expert hands of David Mazzuchelli (Batman), Paul Karasik (Raw) and Art Spiegelman (Maus), Auster's spin on the detective story has been given a unique and unexpected new life.

On the East side of Central Park at 58th & 5th, the iconic Strand Book Store has set up a kiosk. There, I purchased a quintessentially NYC story, this time re-told in gn form: It‘s an über-meta detective story where the protagonist goes a bit insane as the case goes on. I can‘t say that I really understood it 100% but it will be worth the time to re-read it more thoroughly. B&W panels - Amazing composition.

So, this was a #QuickRead! Despite not having LOVED it, I'm curious about maybe continuing the trilogy - from what I understand the novels are only linked thematically though. Once you get into this novel you understand that it's not about the plot (though I'm frustrated I didn't get more answers) or the writing, but about the character(s)...or is it? Anyway, I was left pretty confused but not unsatisfied.

Reading inbetween classes at school. I've never read Paul Auster before but this isn't bad for required reading. EDIT: Ignore how beat up the book is, it seems like my fellow students are too hard on them 😡

An amateur detective takes on a case that forces him to comprehend the mind of a madman, and loses himself in the process.
A terrifying descent into insanity, and a metastory about the mind as labyrinth and identity as a lie.

After a really busy couple of weeks, I am finally sitting down and reading for a couple of hours.

I was a young teenager when I first read the New York Trilogy. Since then it has come to symbolize a certain period in my life. For this reason I have been cautious of this comic book version of City of Glass. This is absolutely brilliant. The book manages to keep the essence of the story while adding abstract imagery that compliments and heightens the written word. This is a perfect example of a graphic narrative adaptation of a novel.

Designed by Art Spiegelmann, graphics by David Mazzucchelli - and adaption by Paul Karasik. I don't know the other books in the neon litt-series. But this is a very good adaption of Paul Auster's labyrinthic crime story. Recommended!

Graphic adaption of Paul Auster's City of Glass. I have had this edition for quite a while sitting on the shelf. But now It's time! Amazing drawings and atmosphere in this. It's been a long while since i read Paul Auster's novel, so I can't quite remember the puzzle and story. #paulauster #graphicnovel #davidmazzucchelli

When words come out, fly into the air, live for a moment, and die.

Shemac77 Based on that sentence alone I'm adding it to my book list. 3y

The specific version is not in the litsy list (yet) but for #augustphotochallenge today my #authorcollab is the graphic novel adaptation of City Of Glass adapted by Paul Karasik and David Mazzucchelli. I loved it and thought it really added another dimension to the novella and it's one of my favourite graphic novels/comics to date!

"Quinn was used to wandering. His excursions through the city had taught him to understand the connectedness of inner and outer. Using aimless motion as a technique of reversal, on his best days he could bring the outside in and thus usurp the sovereignty of inwardness.
