Dies ist ein emotional mitreißendes, mit den ersten Zeilen packendes Buch: eine Lebensbeichte ganz aus der Warte des Körpers. Man kommt darin dem Schriftsteller Paul Auster sehr nahe, aber auch und vor allem dem Mann an der Schwelle zum Alter. Paul Auster spricht aus, was seine Hand, seine Füße, seine Glieder im Verlauf eines langen Lebens getan haben. Er lässt seine Liebesbeziehungen Revue passieren: viele zunächst und dann – dreißig Jahre lang – nur noch die eine, große Liebe! Die Kinder, die Abtreibungen, die Krankheiten. Er spricht über die Begegnungen mit dem Tod: ein Sturz als Junge, eine Herzattacke, ein Autounfall. Über die Körperlichkeit auch, die unendliche Empfindlichkeit jenes physischen Systems, das uns am Leben erhält und über das wir so wenig nachdenken, solange es funktioniert. Alkohol, Zigarillos, Süchte – all die Versuchungen, dieses System auszutricksen, sich dem Verfall, dem Alltag zu entziehen. «Winterjournal» ist eine Art Autobiographie, aber keine konventionelle, sondern höchste literarische Kunst: voll philosophischer Betrachtungen, poetischer Impressionen, intimer Einsichten.

"That is where the story begins, in your body and everything will end in the body as well." On January 3, 2011, exactly one month before his sixty-fourth birthday, internationally acclaimed novelist Paul Auster sat down and wrote the first entry of Winter Journal, his unorthodox, beautifully wrought examination of his own life, as seen through the history of his body. Auster takes us from childhood to the brink of old age as he summons forth a universe of physical sensation, of pleasures and pains, moving from the awakening of sexual desire as an adolescent to the ever deepening bonds of married love, from meditations on eating and sleeping to the "scalding, epiphanic moment of clarity" in 1978 that set him on a new course as a writer.

Paris in the 1930s: Louis Grandeville has a beautiful wife, a nice home, a loyal servant, and a large circle of well-placed friends. His financial situation doesn't require him to work. Yet Louis is obsessed by the nagging reality that he never has and never will amount to anything. He believes his life is devoid of any affection or goal, filled instead with a thousand trifles intended to relieve its monotony, and populated with human beings he seeks out to avoid being alone but for whom he cares little. Every few days for one winter, Louis writes down the details of his unhappy marriage. Although his wife, Madeleine, is the focal point of his journal, his painstakingly rendered analyses of her behavior tell us more about him than her, and about the harm two people can do to one another. Unsparing and insightful, A Winter's Journal remains one of the most devastating novels ever written on the self-destructive impulse present in all marriages.

In tagebuchartigen Einträgen notiert der Erzähler seine Sticheleien gegen seine Frau Madeleine, um mit fast wissenschaftlicher Genauigkeit deren und seine eigenen Reaktionen zu untersuchen. Dabei werden die tiefen Abgründe dieser Beziehung eindringlich aufgedeckt. Die drastischen Selbstversuche und Reflexionen kehren sich jedoch unvermittelt gegen den Protokollanten selbst und führen zum Auseinanderbrechen der Beziehung. "Die Ehe als kriegerisches Schauspiel. Emmanuel Bove [...] ist ein Meister der Schlachtbeschreibung." [Quelle: Manuela Reichart, Berliner Zeitung]

«‹Die Erfindung der Einsamkeit› ist ein überraschend leicht lesbares Buch von existentieller Wucht und beispielloser Wahrhaftigkeit ... Paul Auster, dessen Vorfahren aus Österreich kamen, erinnert an einen Robert Musil, der Hammett und Chandler gelesen hat.» (Klaus Modick, Süddeutsche Zeitung)

Paul Auster führt uns in seine frühe Kindheit, in eine Zeit, in der die Uhren noch Gesichter, die Stifte noch Flugzeuge, die Äste von Bäumen noch Arme sein konnten und auch der Mann im Mond, obgleich ohne Gestalt, noch ein echter Mann war. Auster beschreibt diese phantastische Welt vor den Begriffen mit großer Wärme und leichter Hand. Aber die Fragen, die sich ihm und uns darin stellen, haben Gewicht: Wann werden einem Menschen die Koordinaten seiner Lebenssituation bewusst? Wann begreift sich der kleine Junge aus New Jersey als Amerikaner? Wann als amerikanischer Jude? Gemeinsam mit seinen Lesern lernt Auster jenen Paul neu kennen, der ihm viele Jahre später nur noch schemenhaft vor Augen steht, der allmählich zum Künstler heranwächst, rastlos in winzigen Pariser Zimmern ausharrt, Drehbücher und Liebesbriefe schreibt, Ideen verfolgt und verwirft, die Studentenrevolte in New York erlebt und sich zunehmend professionell dem Schreiben widmet. Dieses Buch ist ein stimmiges Gegenstück zum «Winterjournal». Nach der Geschichte seines Körpers erzählt Auster ebenso unverstellt und poetisch die Geschichte seiner Bewusstwerdung: «Die Welt ist in meinem Kopf. Mein Körper ist in der Welt.»
