En medio de la noche, alguien llama por telefono a Daniel Quinn, un escritor de novelas policiacas que firma bajo pseudonimo y que, descorazonado, ha renunciado a su carrera como poeta. La voz al otro lado de la linea pregunta insistentemente por un investigador, un tal Paul Auster, y quiere encomendarle una mision. Como si se tratara del protagonista de una de sus novelas, Quinn decide dejarse llevar por la casualidad, y asumir la identidad de detective, como si te tratara del protagonista de una de sus novelas. Las pesquisas le llevaran hasta Stillman, un curioso personaje que requiere proteccion para salvar su propia vida. Para ello el detective se perdera en el laberinto de la realidad y de las calles de Nueva York. Con Ciudad de cristal, la inauguracion de La trilogia de Nueva York, Paul Auster reinvento el genero policiaco con una aventura quijotesca y un dialogo sobre la identidad y la realidad contemporaneos. Description in English: In the middle of the night, someone called Daniel Quinn, a writer of detective novels under writing under a pseudonym and who, disheartened, has given up his career as a poet. The voice on the other end of the line repeatedly asks for an investigator, a man named Paul Auster, and wants to entrust him a mission. As if he were the protagonist of one of his novels, Quinn decided to get carried away by chance, and assume the identity of a detective, as if he were the protagonist of one of his novels. The investigation will lead to Stillman, a curious character that requires protection to save his own life. For this, the detective will get lost in the maze of reality and of the streets of New York. With Crystal City, the opening of The New York Trilogy, Paul Auster reinvented the detective genre with a quixotic adventure and a dialogue on identity and contemporary reality.
