Report from the Interior

Paul Auster, read by the author. Macmillan Audio, unabridged six CDs, 7.5 hrs., $29.99 ISBN 978-1-4272-3334-9
Chronicling his earliest reading and writing to his parents’ unhappy marriage, Auster uses specific moments to extrapolate larger themes and meanings in this memoir that is a companion to Winter Journal. Auster’s narration is impressive, but somewhat flawed. His mature tone perfectly captures the reflective quality of his writing, and the deep, gentle reverberation of his voice grabs listener attention. However, his pacing is sometimes problematic. At times, he reads too quickly and his performance feels rushed. Additionally, Auster often fails to vocally convey emotion. Still, there is a clear power to his delivery that will keep listeners—and fans—engaged. A Henry Holt hardcover. (Nov.)
