Chosen as one of the "100 Most Important Comics of the Century," Picador is proud to republish the graphic novel City of Glass. As Art Spiegelman explains in his new introduction, David Mazucchelli and Paul Karasik "created a strange doppelganger of the original book" and "a breakthrough work." Paul Auster's Edgar Award-nominated masterwork has been astonishing transformed into a new visual language.

Originally published to launch a series of comic adaptations of noir-inflected literature in 1994, this outstanding and unique reinvention of the first volume of Auster's internationally acclaimed The New York Trilogy is finally back in print.
