“In Auster's latest novel, the once-vibrant Miles Heller has been running from responsibility, abandoning all contact with his family for seven years. Fleeing a doomed love affair in Florida, he returns to Brooklyn. Soon, Heller finds himself avoiding the law, squatting in Sunset Park among an eclectic cast of characters, and desperately trying to repair the damage done by his estrangement and guilt.This is a dark look at how life can turn in a moment's notice and how the resulting consequences can impact the ones we love the most.”

Twenty-eight-year-old Miles is haunted by guilt for having inadvertently caused the death of his step-brother, an incident that caused him to flee New York seven years previously. Now he lives in Florida, photographing the last traces of families who have abandoned their houses due to debt or foreclosure during the banking crisis. When a complicated romance forces him to go on the run again, he returns to Brooklyn to confront his father and his past.
