The Austerian Master Code - Paul Auster: Travels in the Scriptorium

Abstract

Although one of the big motifs in Paul Auster’s oeuvre is the nature of chance, there is a distinct familiarity, even to some extent predictability, about the tone, phrases, choice of settings, techniques, narrative solutions, and characters in all of his novels – a style unmistakably ‘Austerian’, like the unchangeable pattern of a story that is retold over and over again in an infinite number of variants.
