Summary/Abstract: This paper is an attempt to explore the literary connections between Paul Auster’s work and the French writers and philosophers of XX century in particular Maurice Blanchot. Even though Auster is usually read in a postmodern key his work as a translator from French allows us to place him in a different context which reveals some of the biggest influences that shaped him as the famous writer he is. In addition, the text will present a brief correspondence between Paul Auster and Maurice Blanchot.
