Paul Auster

Paul Auster

This section is dedicated to a future Scriptorium Page on Paul Auster. If you are a writer with expertise in the life and works of Paul Auster, and you’d be interested in helping The Modern Word expand, please look at the Scriptorium submission guidelines. Until then, we’d like to recommend the following resources to interested visitors.



Paul Auster, hailed as “one of America’s most spectacularly inventive writers,” will open the new season of Works & Process on September 12 and 13 by reading from his Collected Poems at the Guggenheim Museum. In addition, Works & Process has commissioned vocal music settings of his poetry from five leading composers. They will have their world premiere performances those evenings.

The composers are Milton Babbitt, Lee Hyla, Louis Karchin, Roger Reynolds, and Charles Wuorinen; and each of the works is a duet for one voice and one instrument, performed by The Group for Contemporary Music.

Sunday and Monday 12/13 September at 8pm (same program each night)

Peter Lewis Theater, Guggenheim Museum, 1071 Fifth Avenue (between 88th and 89th Streets)

TICKETS:$18 ($15 for Guggenheim Members, Students and Seniors)

To order please call the Box Office at 212 423 3587, Monday-Friday, 1-5pm. Or visit the Guggenheim Museum.
