This book is an examination of an unexplored facet of the Paul Auster canon, as it will discuss the aspects of intermediation between different media forms, in relation to the formation of narrative identity in this author’s works such as literary texts, films, and collaborative projects. It will offer an intermedial reading of Auster’s various texts through theories of adaptation as well as theories of image and text, also seeking to discuss the ways in which the visual elements affect storytelling in Auster’s fiction and stimulate an interactive reader engagement. The book begins with a firm theoretical basis for a study of intermediality in Auster’s oeuvre, shaping up new concepts in intermedia studies, such as: heterotopic intermediality, palimpsestuous intermediality, metaintertextual metaintermediality, as well as the intermedial suture. The chapters are organized around these notions while discussing Auster’s and his fellow artists’ works: Smoke, The Book of Illusions, The Inner Life of Martin Frost, City of Glass: The Graphic Novel, Leviathan, and Sophie Calle’s Double Game.
