As he sifts through his Fatherâs things, Auster uncovers a sixty-year-old murder mystery that sheds light on his fatherâs elusive character. In the second section, the perspective shifts and Auster begins to reflect on his own identity as a father by adopting the voice of a narrator, âA.â Through a mosaic of images, coincidences, and associations âA,â contemplates his separation from his son, his dying grandfather, turning the story into a self-conscious reflection on the process of writing.
