Auster’s “Album” in Report from the Interior: Analysis and Analogies

Abstract : The article is devoted to the final section of Paul Auster’s Report from the Interior. First there is an attempt to imagine the various ways readers can integrate the “Album” of images into their experience of the book. Then there is an examination of the role of the visual images in the journey of memory between interior and exterior, and of the way these visual images relate to the questions of visibility and disappearance that animate the book. How do such non-personal, medium-quality images mediate memory? The article seeks, finally, to account by analogy for the elaboration and the esthetic effects of this trans-disciplinary work.
