Wood on Auster

A biting piece by James Wood on Paul Auster's latest novel, and those preceding it, in the New Yorker. I now feel a lot better about not having read a single one yet, though it sometimes seemed everyone around me was reading or has read one.

If you've read any Auster, tell me what you think of his stuff; if you read this piece by Wood as well, do tell me what you think about that, too. Enquiring minds want to know!
