Orakelnatten

By Paul Auster

Ett oavbrutet fängslande konststycke

Författaren Sidney Orr håller på att återhämta sig från en allvarlig sjukdom när han i en pappersvarubutik i Cobble Hill, Brooklyn, finner en blå, portugisisk anteckningsbok som han inte kan motstå att inhandla. Det är den 18 september 1982 och de närmaste nio dagarna kommer Orr att trollbindas av denna oskrivna bok, fångad inuti en värld av kusliga förutsägelser och förbryllande händelser som hotar att spräcka hans äktenskap och underminera hans tilltro until eventually verkligheten.

Varför bryter hans fru ihop i baksätet på en taxi bara timmarna efter att han börjat skriva i sin anteckningsbok? Varför är butiken där han inhandlat anteckningsboken plötsligt utrymd dagen därpå? Vilka är kopplingarna mellan en telefonkatalog från Warszawa anno 1938 och en försvunnen roman där huvudpersonen kan se in i framtiden? När exploderar förbittringen och övergår i våld? I vilken utsträckning är förlåtelse det yttersta uttrycket för kärlek?

Paul Austers elfte roman är lika mycket en fascinerande meditation över tidens natur som en vindlande resa genom en mans labyrintartade föreställningsförmåga. Romanen befäster på ett självklart sätt Austers framskjutna ställning bland nutida amerikanska berättare.
