And in Sunset Park, he does not disappoint. This novel is less postmodern than his recent book Invisible. It focuses on debris: physical debris from trashed-out foreclosed homes in Florida that Miles Heller, a Brown University drop-out, rescues through his camera. Con 'Sunset Park', Paul Auster deja a un lado la metaliteratura y los relatos dentro de relatos para contarnos una historia más cercana a la actual crisis que estamos viviendo. El protagonista es Miles Heller, de veintiocho años, que un buen día de hace ocho años, lo dejó todo, la universidad donde sacaba excelentes notas y que le auspiciaba un gran futuro, y su familia, algo atípica, pero con la se llevaba bien.

Appearing in a novel by Paul Auster that itself happens to have an ambiguously gentle title, these literary references create a frisson for the reader and establish a pleasant uncertainty as to whether the novelist's take on the US economy will finally be Wyleresque or Beckettian.
Only 10 left in stock (more on the way). Only 18 left in stock (more on the way). In Sunset Park, Auster seems to carry all of humanity inside him. ―Jan Stuart, The Boston Globe. As remarkable as are Auster's skill and experience, this kind of writing-this kind of ending-takes another, rarer attribute: tremendous courage. This is the fourth Paul Auster book I've read and the one I liked the least. Love his writing, but not crazy about these characters. Hard to be involved in their lives or care too much for them.

Even on the first day, when they sat in the park talking about The Great Gatsby, he was impressed that she was reading the book for herself and not because a teacher had assigned it at school, and then, as the conversation continued, doubly impressed when she began to argue that the most important character in the book was not Daisy or Tom.

At the start of his new novel, Sunset Park, Paul Auster merrily disregards Vonnegut’s rule, introducing Miles Heller as a man with no longings or hopes who has trained himself to want as little as humanly possible. On the surface, Sunset Park is fairly straightforward, without Auster’s trademark postmodern flourishes. Yet he tests the rules throughout, as if the experiment were to write a conventionally satisfying novel while bucking many of the conventions of how to write fiction. Sunset Park has a scrapbook feel that may leave readers unsure what the book is really about, a question that applies to conceptual novels as much as to conventional ones. Still, Auster consistently brings to the page interesting people, possessed by esoteric fixations and driven to express their ideas in creative ways. He’s right that the rules of fiction should be bent.
