This chapter studies the three main themes of language, writing and New York. It studies New York for the ways the characters, particularly Quinn in ‘City of Glass’, relate to the urban experience. It then discusses Auster's persistent theme of language and its capacity to engage and represent the metropolitan condition. This chapter also reviews the idea of writing, and emphasises the instabilities of literary form.
