Baumgartner’s life has been defined by his deep, abiding love for his wife, Anna. But now Anna is gone, and Baumgartner is embarking on his seventies whilst trying to live with her absence. Rich with compassion, wit and Auster’s keen eye for beauty in the smallest, most transient episodes of ordinary life, ‘Baumgartner’ is a tender late masterpiece of the ache of memory. It asks: why do we find such meaning in certain moments, and forget others?
