2009 book 231

Paul Auster's Invisible
Auster is one of those reliably good authors--I know I'll almost always enjoy reading his novels, and this was no exception. Sometimes he gets super meta, which is interesting, but this book is more straightforward (though there is a memoir within a novel thing going on). We have the story of Adam, a college student in 1967 who gets involved with an eccentric professor and his French girlfriend, sent as a memoir to a college friend, who adds his own spin on things. None of which explains any of it very well, except to say that it's worth a read. A-.
