The New York Trilogy: (Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition) - Paul Auster, Luc Sante, Art Spiegelman

As the author photo indicates, Paul Auster has an inquisitive eye. In these three novels, Auster pulls back the curtain on a city where every resident is a character and every detail is a clue. We become accomplices in his identity scam, partners in his stake-out and doppelgängers in his circus mirror. Even the cover of this edition (gorgeously rendered by Art Spiegelman) hints at the beautiful complexity inside. If you’ve never read Auster, read this. If you have, read more.

Go with Me - Castle Freeman

In Go With Me, we follow Lillian, as she tries to "take care of" Blackway, a man she fears will soon kill her. After the Sheriff rebuffs her, she reluctantly turns for help to a band of outsiders led by a man named Whizzer. Ultimately, she teams up with a sharp-witted codger and a strong, but perceptibly dimwitted youth to solve her problem. This book is the perfect illustration of how dialogue should be written: The staccato rhythms of Lillian's sections match the anxiety and necessity of her quest and the repetitive tone of Whizzer's office highlights the almost banal nature of violence. It is at once a a gripping adventure tale and a gothic mystery brought north. Go With Me's suspense and tension give way to an incredibly delightful reward in its final pages. with Cat Dawson
