Publisher Description

From the bestselling author of 4 3 2 1 and The New York Trilogy comes Paul Auster's luminous, tour de force
novel set during the 2008 economic collapse.

"Auster fans and newcomers will find in Sunset Park his usual beautifully nuanced prose.... [and] a tremendous crash bang of an ending.” — NPR


Sunset Park
opens with twenty-eight-year-old Miles Heller trashing out foreclosed houses in Florida, the latest stop in his flight across the country. When Miles falls in love with Pilar Sanchez, he finds himself fleeing once again, going back to New York, where his family still lives, and into an abandoned house of young squatters in Sunset Park, Brooklyn.

Woven together from various points of view—that of Miles's father, an independent book publisher trying to stay afloat, Miles's mother, a celebrated actress preparing her return to the New York stage, and the various men and women who live in the house—"Auster seems to carry all of humanity inside him" (The Boston Globe).

Sunset Park

Good, but not Auster's best. The slice-of-life motif wasn't enough to keep me engaged with the characters. Auster's work usually has a haunting quality that this book sorely lacked.

Auster delivers again

Paul Auster never fails to deliver an extremely well written book. His characters are so well developed that you really care and feel as tho you know them. I have read all of his books, and I never hesitate to purchase a new work of his. He is at the top of my list of favorite authors, and at times I believe he does not receive the recognition he so rightly deserves. I would not hesitate to buy this book and if you have not read any of his other works I suggest you check them out. This book kept me interested from the first page to the end. I would rather not give any of the plot away, but let you go on this journey yourself.
