About this book

This truly unique book is the second collaboration between celebrated writer Paul Auster and artist/printmaker Glenn Thomas and features a story within a story from Auster's The Book of Illusions, called The Inner Life of Martin Frost. This book is produced with fold-out pages featuring Thomas's screen prints alongside the text of Auster and is packaged in a box. Auster and Thomas first collaborated in 2002. Thomas showed Auster some of his work and suggested a graphic arts project that would combine an Auster text with a series of drawings. Auster liked the idea and asked Thomas to choose one of his texts. A text was selected from The New York Trilogy—City of Glass, a very moving and intense section, which Thomas called ""The Peter Stillman Monologue."" In December of 2003, a limited edition linen portfolio was printed that contained 8 twocolor silkscreen prints plus a signed colophon. Both Auster and Thomas were so pleased with the results that they decided to do a second project, the result of which is The I er Life of Martin Frost. This is a Rozenberg Title.

Reader's Thoughts

i hate to admit it, but this was lame. I love Auster and most of his work, but this one didn't cut it. I don't know if the film would be any better, but I don't see how. There is no substance to it. Nothing is pulling me in. Sorry Paul.

Paul Auster es uno de mis autores favoritos. La vida interior de Martin Frost es el guión cinematográfico que escribió para su película, del mismo nombre. No la he visto ni creo que lo haga, porque el guión me ha dejado muy buena sensación, y creo que con ello basta.Está cargado de misterio y simbolismos. Al principio no se sabe muy bien qué es lo que está pasando, pero el desconcierto hace que quieras averiguar, que quieras seguir leyendo.Y cuando por fin todo empieza a tener algo de sentido, te maravillas con el significado, con lo que Auster tiene en la cabeza y te está transmitiendo.Es una historia de un hombre que escribe un cuento sobre un hombre que escribe un cuento, pero esto no es lo que importa. Lo importante es lo que va pasando mientras está escribiendo. No puedo contar más sin desvelar "sorpresas".

Como escritor, lo queráis, pero como guionista, este hombre no vale nada.

Regalo de mi amigo Invisible. Una historia de ensueño, creación y amor, todo en un ambiente mágico.

Intrigante e onirico, quanto basta per perdere la fermata del metro solo per finirlo. Peccato che sia solo una sceneggiatura.
