Biblio Love - Invisible by Paul Auster

It had been too long since I last read anything by Paul Auster; thankfully, my library has several of his books. Invisible tells the story of Adam Walker, a young poetry student from Columbia University and his relationship with professor Rudolf Born and his girlfriend Margot after meeting them at a party. Although the setting is initially set in 1967, the actions, faces and emotions can easily be seen in today's world. One act of violence changes everyone's world, forcing them to be naked and vulnerable under the scrutinizing human eye. To be invisible means to forget and to never look back on regrets and foolish decisions. Yet, how can one be "invisible" when there is so much at stake?
