'By the time Nashe understood what was happening to him, he was past the point of wanting it to end.'

Paul Auster fuses Samuel Beckett and The Brothers Grimm in this brilliant and unsettling parable. Following the death of his father, Jim Nashe takes to the open road. But there he picks up Pozzi, a hitchhiking gambler, and is drawn into a dangerous game of high-stakes poker with two eccentric and reclusive millionaires.
