From the supplier: In 'The Music of Chance' Paul Auster analyzes the complicated relationship between truth and chance. The encounter of Jim Nashe and Jack Pozzi with the millionaires Flower and Stone in a game of chance provides the novel's moment of truth. Nashe loses all his money and his car in the card game and is forced to build a wall with 15th-century stone. In losing the card game, Nashe is set on the path to greater truth and becomes an illustration of the the line from 'The Sound and the Fury,' "until someday in very disgust he risks everything on the single blind turn of a card," which he has read earlier.
