>City of Glass: The Graphic Novel Adaptation

05 Nov


Rating: 4/5

I’ve never read Paul Auster’s New York trilogy, and I may never. However, as a great story and a great comic I recommend Paul Karasik and David Mazzucchelli’s supreme adaptation of City of Glass. It’s essentially about an author who has hid himself away in New York after the deaths of his wife and child and writes detective pulp. Reality becomes warped as the author gradually fades into his own mind and plots one of his novels around himself. The surreal story introduces some very interesting characters with equally crazy theories about life, God and language. If you’ve read the novel I’d love to hear your take on the story.
