Prominent American writer Paul Auster dies at 77 from lung cancer

MADRID, 1 May. (EUROPA PRESS) -

The prominent American writer Paul Auster died this Tuesday night in Brooklyn, a neighborhood in New York City (United States), at the age of 77 as a result of lung cancer, according to the newspaper 'The New York Times'.

The death of Auster, author of works such as 'The New York Trilogy', 'Sunset Park', 'Invisible' and 'The Book of Illusions', has been confirmed to the aforementioned newspaper by his friend Jacki Lyden.

His career and popularity have meant that his work has been translated into more than forty languages, and has led him to enter the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and receive the Prince of Asturias Award for Letters in 2006.

In November 2023 he published his latest novel, 'Baumgartner', which came after the novel '4 3 2 1', from 2017, the essays 'The Immortal Flame of Stephen Crane', from 2021, and 'A Country Bathed in Blood ', also from 2023.
