City of Glass is a novel by Paul Auster first published in 1985. It features a writer turned private detective descending into madness. It explores layers of identity and reality: Paul Auster the writer of the novel; "the author" who reports the events as reality; "Paul Auster the writer", a character in the story; "Paul Auster the detective", who may or may not exist in the novel; Daniel Quinn, initials.

City of Glass was adapted in 1994 into a critically acclaimed experimental graphic novel by Paul Karasik and David Mazzucchelli, which was subsequently published as City of Glass: The Graphic Novel in 2004.
