This is a novel which is difficult to describe because of its complexity. Essentially, it tells the story of a family, but its told with flashbacks and fragments in such a way that a reader may easily get lost.

Nonetheless, its a good sense of being lost, a sense in which one explores new territories and discovers new beauty.This is a novel about looking and breathing, about being alive in ones own skin, about the physical properties of colors and flowers and light, about the transformative powers of the human eye. Plimptons strange mutating sentences make me think of Cezannes brush strokes, the exactitude of a rendered world at the precise instant it is perceived.

Quietly, ever so quietly, HURRY ALONG is one of the most radical books I have read in years. Paul AusterHURRY ALONG presents us with many ordinary images and scenes made vivid and captivating by their writing- these alternate with dramatic and complex scenes that tell the story of the book the family life of a grandmother, her daughter, and her grandson in unpredictable fragments.

The prose remains as lively as ever, but the fragments, rarely explained, remain shrouded in ambiguity, clarified only by an explicitly metaphorical commentary on the passage of the seasons. Reading, I repeatedly tell myself that I should stop and make a rational summary of what is happening, but I never do, always hurrying along in anticipation of new delights (and possible clarifications)- but the condition of the delights is necessarily a tantalizing mystery- and that, ultimately, is the greatest delight of all in this ravishing and generous work.
