It was not a judgment on Auster but merely a classificatory comment. I
would never include him in such a list. He's a technical writer, a
fluent writer, but not really a storyteller like crime literature
pros. This is not the place to discuss his work, but I do think he is
overrated by the critics. More technique than substance.
