A New York Times Bestseller
From the bestselling author of Invisible and The New York Trilogy comes a new novel set during the 2008 economic collapse. 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” (Jan Stuart, The Boston Globe).
"Auster has an enormous talent for creating worlds that are both fantastic and believable. . . . His novels are uniformly difficult to put down, a testament to his storytelling gifts."--Timothy Peters, "San Francisco Chronicle"
