IN THE COUNTRY OF LAST THINGS / Paul Auster

 

In her extensive letter to home Anna Blume reports on the search for her long lost brother, which brings her to an unnamed, deserted town falling to ruin in a catastrophic economic crisis. Let’s imagine an American metropolis in the near future, where only homeless people, squatters in semi-ruined buildings, and robbers of those dead lying aroundthe street reside.Suicide clubs offer various opportunities and benefits for dying, the rich have left the city, and the others are surviving in the vortex of robberies, primitive trade of goods, and small earnings. Among the many post-apocalyptic novels, which are always flooding the market anew, the novel “In the Country of Last Things” by Paul Auster is something truly different: a dreamy, mesmerizing fable of an inhumane and reckless society, which can be found quite familiar. Auster, an extraordinary stylist, is one of today’s greatest American writers, again perfectly craftingrealism and wonder, this time around in order to present the tone and atmosphereof a world-spread nightmare, terror and entropy.
