Author(s): Paul Auster
Meet Willy G. Christmas, a brilliant, troubled and altogether original poet-saint from Brooklyn, and Mr Bones, his canine sidekick. Together they embark on one last great adventure together, heading to Baltimore in search of Willy's beloved mentor Bea Swanson - who used to know him as William Gurevitch, son of Polish war refugees. But is she still alive?
Paul Auster's comic and poignant Timbuktu stars an unforgettable dog who has much to teach us about our own humanity.
