Distance. The most unusual memoir or autobiography I’ve read in a while is Paul Auster’s Report from the Interior. Much of the book is written in the second person, highlighting the distance that time has created between the author at his current age and his reflections on his early life. These finely written reflections triggered comparable memories from my own early life. I also enjoyed reading the letters that Auster wrote in his late teens and early twenties. Readers who like fine writing will find the prose in this book very enjoyable.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
