Writing, Narrating

"I'm very interested in exposing the works, as it were. When you pick up a book, everyone knows it's imaginary. You don't have to pretend it's not a book. We don't have to pretend that people don't write books. That omniscient third-person narration isn't the only way to do it. Once you're writing in the first person, then the narrator is a writer."

The Guardian interviews Paul Auster on the occasion of the publication of his 12th novel, The Brooklyn Follies.
