Abstract

The essay deals with the invention of a feature film and a set of silent shorts in Paul Auster’s The Book of Illusions, investigating the book’s concrete filmic invention and the connections it establishes between films as a form of art and their making. Moving from the book’s topography, and the contribution space makes to the final meaning of the novel, the essay maintains that at the novel’s center there is the construction of the narrator/protagonist as a film viewer yielding to the fascination of the screen.
