"Paul Auster's A Life in Words--a wide-ranging dialogue between Auster and the Danish professor I. B. Siegumfeldt--is a remarkably candid and often surprising celebration of one writer's art, craft, and life.

This is a book that's full of surprises, composed of spoken words that sometimes jump off the page like good drama. The conversations between Auster and Siegumfeldt went on for three years, starting in 2011, and continuing after there was a complete draft in revisions and further conversations that went on until now.
