Paul Auster: Lulu on the Bridge

22. March 2008 18:30

While working on the postproduction of Smoke and Blue in the Face in 1995, Paul Auster, when asked „Now that you’ve caught the bug, do you have any desire to direct again?“, answered: „No, I can’t say that I do.“ However, the idea for Lulu came to him around that time. He saw the story as a movie. He felt burned out by movies then and therefore tried to write it as a novel only to find out that it didn’t work, it was a dramatic story, not a narrative story, it needed to be seen, not just read.
