Description

With the skill of Scheherazade, the narrator of Fifty Days slowly unravels the mysteries of two lives. High above the city, in a deserted apartment block, a beautiful ex- porn star is living alone. Gest has fifty days to complete her self- imposed task. Her only contact with the outside world is through the Candy Girl, who has been hired to help with her work. But day by day self-containment becomes less possible. As time runs out, Gest becomes aware of a shadowy figure watching her from the opposite building. The voyeuristic appeal of Rear Window and the storytelling ingenuity of Paul Auster combine in this novel of outstanding lyricism and invention from an award-winning writer.
