Paul Auster & Inge Birgitte Siegumfeldt, En verden i ord. Paul Auster i samtale med Inge Birgitte Siegumfeldt, Copenhagen: Lindhardt & Ringhof (September 2016).

A Life in Words: Paul Auster in Conversation with I.B. Siegumfeldt, New York: Seven Stories Press.

The Seven Stories Press Frankfurt Catalogue announces the book as follows:

"A Life in Words – a wide-ranging dialogue between Paul Auster and the Danish associate professor, I.B. Siegumfeldt – is an alarmingly naked and often surprising celebration of one writer's art, craft, and life. It includes many revelations that have never been shared before. This is a book that's full of surprises, composed of spoken words that sometimes jump off the page like good drama."

Inge Birgitte Siegumfeldt will give a short presentation of the book with special focus on the sources of inspiration from the Hebrew Bible in Auster’s writing.

This event will take place in Danish and in English - based on the Danish edition of the book, which will appear before the English one.
