For the record, in case you're looking for it, Auster's
Squeeze Play was attributed to Paul Benjamin (Auster's middle
name). I often see the paperback in used book stores. It's a
PI novel set in the world of baseball. I remember it as being
okay when I read it way back when
(long before I knew it was Auster), but don't really remember anything about it, which I usually do.
I've also read the NY York Trilogy. I read the first two as
they came out in paper, with some time in between, thought
they were okay, but not much more. It was one of the first
postmodern-ish novels I had read, though. I later went back
and read all three in quick succession. This time I thought a
whole lot of them. But read them in order. The third
references things in the first two.
The first in the trilogy, City of Glass, was also adapted as
a graphic novel in Art Spiegelman's shortlived Neon Lit
series (just two came out as far as I know -- too bad, I was
looking forward to the third, Nightmare Alley).
