Invisible by Paul Auster

InvisibleAgain, a book I took a chance on knowing nothing about subject or author–and another very pleasant surprise. The book is divided into sections with different narrators; in the first, you meet main character Adam as he meets a young couple at a party. This meeting, though Adam doesn’t know it, will define the rest of Adam’s life. In the second section, you learn that the first section was the beginning of Adam’s memoir, sent to a friend of his for advice on writing and publishing. Through the friend’s eyes, you learn the rest of Adam’s story (some of which is disturbing, to say the least) in the second and third pieces of his memoir. Invisible is like nothing I’ve ever read before and takes a careful read; in fact, I probably will want to read it again for a better understanding. I give it a “highly recommend.”
