I went literary for today’s Advent reading with Paul Auster’s Augie Wren’s Christmas Story, included in a collection of stories by best-selling authors in Literary Christmas. I chose Auster because he wrote The Brooklyn Follies, my favorite book this year.

The story is about a man who chronicles time by photographing the same city corner every day for years with a stolen camera and a lonely old woman hoping for a Christmas Day visit from her grandson. Sometimes the best gift of all is simply being present for one another.

Time to read another Auster book. Happy Advent.
