Author Info
Paul Auster
Auster grew up in Newark, the product of an unhappy, mismatched marriage. As a boy, he was addicted to Mad Magazine and was also a voracious reader. He usually spent his summers working in his uncle Moe's appliance store, but the summer after he graduated from high school he traveled in Europe, working on a novel. After earning his B.A. and M.A. from Columbia University, he returned to Europe, living in France, translating the works of French writers (as well as the North Vietnamese Constitution) and also beginning to publish his own work in American journals. He married a writer, Lydia Davis, with whom he had one child and then divorced. In 1981, he married novelist Siri Hustvedt, with whom he had two children, and in 1985 his first novel, CITY OF GLASS, was published by Sun & Moon Press after 17 rejections--it was the first in the series of three experimental quasi-detective stories now known as THE NEW YORK TRILOGY. Auster has continued to write and publish critically acclaimed fiction and poetry, as well as an autobiography. He has also been involved in filmmaking: his novel THE MUSIC OF CHANCE was made into a movie in 1993, and the films SMOKE and BLUE IN THE FACE, based on his scripts, were released in 1995.
