Nathan Glass ha sobrevivido a un cáncer de pulmón y a un divorcio después de treinta y tres años de matrimonio, y ha vuelto a Brooklyn, el lugar donde nació y pasó su infancia. Quiere vivir allí lo que le queda de su 'ridícula vida'. Hasta que enfermó era un próspero vendedor de seguros; ahora que ya no tiene que ganarse la vida, piensa escribir El libro de las locuras de los hombres. Contará todo lo que pasa a su alrededor, todo lo que le ocurre y lo que se le ocurre, y hasta algunas de las historias - caprichosas, disparatadas, verdaderas locuras - de personas que recuerda. Comienza a frecuentar el bar del barrio, el muy austeriano Cosmic Diner, y está casi enamorado de la camarera, la casada e inalcanzable Marina. Y va también a la librería de segunda mano de Harry Brightman, un homosexual culto y contradictorio, que no es ni remotamente quien dice ser.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Desiree | 2/20/2014

    " Sometimes I am still sad that I will never get to read the characters in this book again. Memorable, endearing, funny and sentimental--this book certainly has a place in my heart. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Martha | 2/5/2014

    " I love Paul Auster and this book is another reason why. His stories always contain the element of chance. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gaspar | 2/2/2014

    " I really like Paul Auster, but I found this book to be too contrived. The characters were predictable and not really very believable. Also, his liberal slant is a little over-the-top for my taste. Had he poked more fun at his own political/social beliefs, I may have enjoyed the book a tiny bit more, but overall I still would have remained fairly unsatisfied. All of this being said, Auster, as usual, is an interesting read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chad | 1/21/2014

    " What is your Hotel Existence? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kate | 1/14/2014

    " This was an alright novel. I enjoyed the main character and parts were quite funny but overall some of the scenarios are a bit over the top. The lesbian love affair, come on! It's a cute book though and it does have a lot of high points in it. I think I would have appreciated this novel if I was about 10 years older. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Plot2themoon | 1/14/2014

    " Paul Auster is an amazing author. His books make me want to become a writer myself. The Brooklyn Follies is a wonderful story about a man getting his life back together despite numerous tragedies. Through this the main character Nat uses what he has learned to help his family and friends though there crazy lives. He begins writing a book called The Book of Human Folly. Through this the reader feels the effect that every normal person in the world is worthy of having their stories told, even though all the mistakes we make that are created by human pressure. The blurbs on the Auster books never make me want to read them and I can never explain one of his books in a way that will make anyone else want to read them, but the truth is they are wonderful and should be read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Claudia | 1/8/2014

    " This book is something else, it was great to finish it on 9/11. You will know why after you read it. Did you know that this book took Auster at least 10 years of his life? At the beginning he had a man with his dog as a main characters but you know that then they had a book for themselves ("Timbuktu"), then came Nathan and the story became a novel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jacob | 12/27/2013

    " I think I've eaten at every restaurant in this book! (Except the swishy Manhattan places - but is that really eating?) A coming-to-life tale set in an idyllic location and peopled with charming characters and rare books sellers. I thought the whole thing was lively, a little absurd and a little realistic, just enough of each to goad some fresh observation and self-reflection. Plus, I no longer have to shuffle my feat and avoid people's eyes when they say "Paul Auster." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Clay Hamilton | 12/16/2013

    " Paul Auster being Paul Auster. I enjoy his writing and his contrivances, but this wasn't my favorite book he's written. Still worth picking up, though. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 TJ | 12/15/2013

    " Not quite what I expected, but still a good read. Characters were intriguing though not quite interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abdulrahman | 12/11/2013

    " its a nice book with dark emotions and sarcasm and a realistic feel to it. i so loved it! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tim | 12/4/2013

    " Is the book where Auster falls off the literary map? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 11/28/2013

    " After reading a few poorly written, but very popular books (Hinger Games trilogy, 50 Shades), this book was a delightful change. An intelligent person clearly wrote it! I enjoyed the storyline and vocabulary. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ronnie | 11/23/2013

    " I'm a great fan of Paul Auster anyway. I don't how he does it, but the way he brings his characters to live makes you want to invite them for dinner. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Margaret Vincent | 11/15/2013

    " family, love, depression, joy, heartbreak, religion, death, community. it's all here. really wonderful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sunny | 10/11/2013

    " Possibly one of Auster's most accessible books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Guia | 8/11/2013

    " I enjoyed this book that I stumbled upon while browsing NookBooks. It's a tale of a dysfunctional "family" that is amusing, sweet and - thank goodness - has a happy ending. Sort of. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Russell George | 7/4/2013

    " Couldn't get into this, and after a few days' break, didn't really want to open it again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel Siegel | 5/8/2013

    " fiction-good character study, towards the end, couldn't put it down "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Samantha | 3/29/2013

    " Not my favorite, but another quick/easy read with some good vocab words! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Junhua Lian | 1/15/2013

    " Life happens in a peculiar way, but eventually it pass. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ernest M | 12/8/2012

    " Hard for Auster to top his previous works, but this is a page turner worth reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julianna | 8/12/2012

    " a must for any brooklynite. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Danika | 1/22/2012

    " Classic Paul Auster. I liked and enjoyed it, though I don't think it's one of his better works. Felt a bit forced and the ending came together a little too perfectly. "
