Maud Newton quotes an article from the London Times about Paul Auster:
He confides that this year's US election has whipped him up into a lather. "I am burning with passion about this whole campaign," he growls. "For me, it feels almost like a matter of life and death for Americans that we get Bush out of office."
His political leanings don't strike me as particularly newsworthy, but had someone told he was a Republican, I'd be really upset.
Paul Auster has written lyrics for a song, which can be downloaded from topplebush.com. (I don't think it's very good.)
I should just change the name of this blog to Magnificent Austerpus already.
I'm still reading The Book of Illusions. I'll post a complete impression when I'm finished.
