Paul Auster s The brooklyn Follies presents a stark contrast to the first work of his that I ve read The New York Trilogy although the majority of it takes place in New York the two are different as night and day Novels that comprise The New York Trilogy have been largely experimental post modern cat and mouse between the author and the reader The Brooklyn Follies is a novel with a pretty straightforward but nevertheless compelling plot and characters one can care about As the title suggests it is a novel about folly what follies do we put ourselves in voluntarily or not and what are their conseuencesThe protagonist and narrator is a man named Nathan Glass a 60 year old ex insurance salesman who went through lung cancer and has recently became a divorcee has sort of given up on life and wants to calmly wait it out until its end spending the savings he has attained Looking for a uiet place to die upon someone s recommendation he moves back to Brooklyn the place he kept returning to as he lived there as a child While browsing the area Nathan Wood encounters his newhew Tom once a promising academician now a former cab driver and a current used book store employee He introduces Nathan to his boss Harry Duncan a character with a colorful past who still has a few schemes and plans up his sleeve To pass the time Nathan began a project of his own The Book of Human Folly an accounts of mishaps and mistakes which as the title suggest might have ended as the text of the very novel we re readingStarting with a wish to die The Brooklyn Follies slowly moves up towards the will to live Reading the novel is a journey during which we witness the transformation of the characters their redemption and reconfirmation regaining of life The tone is much jovial than the one of The New York Trilogy and the characters often end up in mishap and folly but there is poignancy a sense of place and time a community before the 911 attacks peacefulness and ordinariness The plot is captivating and the drama is real to say would be to spoil it The characters are colorful and the book never drags in fact I wouldn t mind if it was longer The theme of the book the folly is an important one We all are a part of life and observe it The characters in the novel all have ben lost resigned or misplaced we observe how they slowly get their lives back and change from willing to die to wanting to live Perhaps beneath the tiredness and mundanity there is still something worth striving for and these people have taken their chancesAlthough not the most original of ideas the novel is captivating and full of colorful characters The writing is crisp and the lack of surreal elements and impersonal cold serves greatly to its favor Auster paints his Brooklyn with warm strokes and gives his characters original and likable personalities the novel is a gentle and tender one where the reader genuinely cares about the fate of people he s reading aboutIt s humorous engaging and inspiring it s human drama done well A good choice to spend several hours involved in the life of an everyman his aspirations dreams triumphs failures and hopes At worst you l put it away and not think much of it at best it might inspire you and re engage you with everyday activities and make you see them in a different light
