Critical sites about City of Glass

Escaping from the Locked Room: Overthrowing the Tyranny of Artifice in Paul Auster’s New York Trilogy
“Auster’s New York Trilogy is comprised of three short novels (City of Glass, Ghosts, and The Locked Room) whose themes and ideas interweave and overlap to explore the nature of language and meaning through the conventions of a “hard boiled” detective novel. The detective’s quest for a solution to the mystery is here transmuted to the search for meaning in the world and in the language that renders the world into words.”

An Examination of the Identity of Author and Character and Their Relationship Within the Narrative Structure of Paul Auster’s New York Trilogy
“Made up of three short novels, Paul Auster’s ‘New York Trilogy’ examines the changing identity of the main characters in a novel, while also investigating “the imbalance between the physical author of a book, the individual who puts his name onto the cover, and the authentic author who I am not certain is the same person”. The first part, ‘City of Glass’, uses the conventions of the crime thriller in a metaphysical apologue about man in relation to subconscious control and solitude.”
