The story of a manual Olympia typewriter, more than 25 years old, and the agent of transmission for the work of one of the most varied and critically acclaimed contemporary authors. Also the story of a relationship, between Auster, his typewriter, and the artist Sam Messer, who, as Auster writes, 'has turned an inanimate object into a being with a personality and a presence in the world.' Written in Auster's discerning prose and illustrated with Messer's obsessive drawings and paintings, this book will stun fans and fine-book lovers alike. 30 pages in full-colour.
