A more mainstream author than of late, not perhaps someone who would consider himself postmodern, but his interest in the operation of chance, the unreliability of memory, and his penchant for including characters who have his name in his books make him a metanarrator of some distinction.
Here's a description to whet your appetite:
'By the time Nashe understood what was happening to him, he was past the point of wanting it to end . . .'
Paul Auster fuses Samuel Beckett and The Brothers Grimm in this brilliant and unsettling parable.
Following the death of his father, Jim Nashe takes to the open road. But there he picks up Pozzi, a hitchhiking gambler, and is drawn into a dangerous game of high-stakes poker with two eccentric and reclusive millionaires.
