Thanks for this. I have taken note of it and will investigate. A reader on the forum recommended me his wife: Siri Hustvedt. There is definitely something very Austerian about her, to the point it makes me wonder whether he corrects her. I am currently reading "What I Loved" and it is quite good but not as good as Mr Auster. She has written a couple of other books though and has attracted critical acclaim... I'll have to read one other books of hers to make myself a definitive opinion on her work. Will post it then.
