Who is  Daniel Auster?

 The son of New York writer Paul Auster was arrested on involuntary manslaughter charges after his 10-month-old baby died of a drug overdose last November.

Daniel Auster’s daughter, Ruby, was found dead in her Park Slope home.


The baby was taken to Methodist Hospital, but nothing could be done to save her life.

An autopsy found that the boy had died from an overdose of fentanyl and heroin.

He is currently awaiting arraignment in Brooklyn Criminal Court.

Auster’s Instagram page is filled with photos of his daughter and his mother.

Charged and Arrest


Daniel Auster was caring for his 10-month-old daughter Ruby at his Park Slope home when 911 was called.

It is not the first time that Daniel Auster has had a brush with the law.

During his teenage years, Daniel began clubbing in New York City and became heavily involved with drugs according to The New Yorker.

At the age of 18, in 1996, when he was eighteen, Daniel was present at the apartment when a drug dealer named Andre ‘Angel’ Melendez was murdered by Club Kid Killer’ Michael Alig, who was a former club promoter. nocturnal. , and his roommate, Robert Riggs.

Daniel received $3,000 of Melendez’s money in exchange for his silence.

He also has a number of other arrests including several for drug possession in 2008 and 2010.In 2009 he was charged with petty theft and possession of stolen property.

Daniel’s father, Paul Auster, is probably America’s best-known postmodern novelist, known for The New York Trilogy, The Book of Illusions and The Palace of the Moon, but the couple’s relationship appears to be estranged.

Daniel’s mother, Paul Auster’s first wife, is the writer Lydia Davis.

During Auster’s 1995 film Smoke, starring Harvey Keitel and William Hurt, about the lives of people who frequented a Brooklyn tobacconist, Paul’s son Daniel played the role of a book thief.

The author, Paul, has won numerous international awards and has been shortlisted for the prestigious Booker Prize and inducted into the American Academy of Arts and Letters.

His own life has not been without controversy.

In 2009, Auster signed a petition in support of film director Roman Polanski, calling for his release after his arrest in Switzerland in connection with his 1977 charge of drugging and raping a 13-year-old girl.

Auster has described his politics as “very much to the left of the Democratic Party”, but in an interview with the BBC he explained how he votes Democrat because he doubts a socialist candidate can win.

He has described right-wing Republicans as “jihadists” and told The Guardian that the election of Donald Trump as president was “the most terrible thing I have ever seen in politics.”
