Mr. Bones, the heroic dog of Paul Auster's astonishing book, is the sidekick and confidant of Willy G. Christmas, a brilliant and troubled homeless man from Brooklyn. As Willy's body slowly expires, he sets off with Mr. Bones for Baltimore in search of his high-school English teacher and a new home for his companion. Mr. Bones is our witness during their journey, and out of his thoughts Paul Auster has spun one of the richest, most compelling tales in recent American fiction.

Praise for Timbuktu

"Over the past twenty-five years, Paul Auster has established one of the most distinctive niches in contemporary literature."--Michael Dirda, The New York Review of Books

"[Timbuktu is] held aloft with audacity and brilliant, idiosyncratic language. . . . It's risk-taking and brazen energy suggest a writer on the verge of an even more rewarding leap into the air of his own uncharted territory."--Philip Graham, Chicago Tribune
"A novel of haunted love whose themes loop around one another like glowing coils, connecting gracefully beneath Auster's clear prose, eliciting the fanciful and the tragic."--Oscar Villalon, San Francisco Chronicle
"A modern parable that invites readers to probe below its deceptively simple surface for deeper truths . . . Auster demonstrates a well-honed talent for illuminating secluded facets of the soul."--Michael Hopkins, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
"Lovely . . . Paul Auster is one of our most inventive and least predictable authors."--Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post Book World
