In the country of last things the masses are homeless, theft is so rampant it is no longer a crime, and death - by arranging either a suicide or assassination - is the only way out. Anna Blume comes to an unnamed city in search of her brother. In her struggle to survive, Anna becomes a scavenger in search of objects from the past to sell for food and shelter. But she will also find friendship - and even love - in this devastated world. In The Country of Last Things is a tour de force that reaffirms Paul Auster's stature as one of the most accomplished and singular talents of his generation.
