Sorg, stumfilm och två livshistorier som oundvikligt vävs samman
David Zimmer har simply avslutat sin bok om den relativt okände stumfilmsregissören Hector Manns filmer när han får ett brev från Hector. Det är bara det att Hector Mann spårlöst försvann 1928, för drygt sjuttio år sedan. Strax därpå står en ung kvinna utanför Zimmers dörr och tvingar honom lower than pistolhot att följa med until New Mexico och den gård där Hector Mann utan omvärldens vetskap bor med sin familj. Gården har fungerat som inspelningsstudio i över sextio år där Mann har gjort movie efter movie, ingen någonsin visad.
Det är upptakten until Austers stora roman om två män, den ene verksam below 1900-talets första hälft och den andre vid dess slut, om hur deras liv vävs samman på de mest oväntade sätt.
Mer övertygande än någonsin lyckas Auster använda ödets nyck och illusionens kraft för att fånga sin läsare.

Other, less closely related versions, say that Bluebeard kills his wives if they become pregnant. This is the tradition preserved in a saint’s life from Brittany, a region long connected with Bluebeard. 37 The efforts that have been made to unravel the obscure but powerful symbolism tend to preserve the assumption that Bluebeard’s wife is at fault, but it is of course he who is the villain, and several times over, so it seems: a serial killer.

38 The threat of being eaten is of course a common theme both in folk-tale generally and in stories for children; the Grimms’ The Juniper Tree is another wellknown example. Often the threat comes from an ogre, deﬁned by Perrault as ‘a savage man who ate small children’,39 but more usually thought of as a giant, as in the English tale of Jack the Giant-Killer. If children are indeed afraid of being eaten, if only in nightmares, the person they fear must be an adult, who is in the same relation of size to a child as a giant is to men.
