Amazon.com description: Product Description: La ciudad de cristal es la primera de las tres novelas que conforman La trilogia de Nueva York. A Daniel Quinn, escritor de literatura policiaca, su interlocutor telefonico lo toma por un detective y le encarga un caso. Quinn, lejos de deshacer el malentendido, se mete en el papel que le han adjudicado y se ve envuelto en una historia repleta de enigmas, complicadas relaciones paternofiliales, locura y delirio. En Fantasmas, segunda de las piezas, un detective privado y el hombre al que tiene que vigilar juegan al escondite en un claustrofobico universo urbano. Por ultimo, en La habitacion cerrada, el protagonista se ve confrontado a los recuerdos de un amigo de la infancia cuando la mujer de este le escribe una carta explicandole que su marido ha desaparecido misteriosamente. En La trilogia de Nueva York, el escritor maneja, manipula y reinventa el genero policiaco, del que hace una relectura posmoderna con tintes metafisicos. La trama detectivesca sirve como marco para plantear al lector un fascinante juego de espejos, simbolos, guinos y sorpresas; para explorar un mundo extrano, sombrio y perturbador, poblado de personajes fascinantes y ambiguos. / The person on the other end of the phone mistakes Daniel Quinn for a detective and entrusts him with a case. This is the start of City of Glass, the first of the three novels that make up The New York Trilogy. In Ghosts, the second in the series, a private detective and the man who he follows play hide and seek in a claustrophobic urban universe. Finally, in The Locked Room the protagonist is confronted with the memories of a childhood friend when his wife writes to him telling of his mysterious disappearance. In this trilogy Auster steers, manipulates, and reinvents the detective genre; he blends a post modern perspective with a metaphysical tone.
