Three Films: Smoke/Blue in the Face/Lulu on the Bridge : From the New York Trilogy to the Book of Illusions and Oracle Night, Paul Auster's novels have earned him a reputation as "one of America's most spectacularly inventive writers." Here, published together for the first time, are the screenplays of the three films he made in the 1990s. Smoke tells the story of a novelist, a cigar store manager, and a black teenager who unexpectedly cross paths and end up changing each other's lives in indelible ways. Set in contemporary Brooklyn, Smoke directly inspired Blue in the Face, a largely improvised comedy shot in a total of six days. Lulu on the Bridge had its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in 1998. When jazz musician Izzy Maurer is accidentally hit by a bullet during a performance in a New York club, he is led on a journey into the strange and sometimes frightening labyrinth of his soul. Both thriller and fairy tale, Lulu on the Bridge is above all a story about the redemptive powers of love.
