I Remember

by Joe BrainardPaul Auster

I Remember is a masterpiece. One by one, the so-called important books of our time will be forgotten, but Joe Brainard’s modest little gem will endure.’  Paul Auster

Joe Brainard’s I Remember is a cult classic, envied and admired by writers from Frank O’Hara to John Ashbery and Edmund White. As autobiography, Brainard’s method was brilliantly simple: to set down specific memories as they rose to the surface of his consciousness, each prefaced by the refrain ‘I remember’.

Introduced by Paul Auster with an Afterword by Ron Padgett. Forty-two years after its original US publication in 1970, this is the first UK edition.

'In simple, forthright, declarative sentences, he charts the map of the human soul and permanently alters the way we look at the world. I Remember is both uproariously funny and deeply moving. It is also one of the few totally original books I have ever read.'
Paul Auster
‘I would make a case for I Remember as one of the twenty or so most important American autobiographies, important for its air of unimportance and for its mingling of cultural bric-a-brac with sexual frankness and self-revelation.’
New Yorker
'Buy it, for everyone you know. The Bible aside, I can't think of a more original or lovely book.'
Olivia Laing, Guardian
