Sunset Park - It’s What We’re Reading

September 2012

A monthly offering from Drexel Library’s staff about the books we’ve read.

Sunset Part

Sunset Park
Paul Auster
In the first dark months after the 2008 economic collapse, Miles Heller moves to Sunset Park, Brooklyn after his marriage collapses because of his own infidelity and inattention. The cast of characters he finds there are all of the ghosts of contemporary America, young squatters in an apartment building, a young “trash-out” worker photographing abandoned objects left behind by evicted families, an independent book publisher trying to save his business and his marriage, an older actress trying to return to Broadway. Paul Auster always offers characters that pull on your heart, and this one is no exception.
