Reviews

Praise for Sunset Park

“Wise, weary and earthy, Auster has a remarkable voice…Listening to the novel would be as good as reading it.” – The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

“Auster’s dry, gravelly voice has a gravitas all its own… one almost feels that Auster is himself an Auster character, blowing smoke rings in an empty room while pondering Anerica’s mysteries and minutiae.” – Publishers Weekly

“The author reads his own work with great feeling, being able to express in his voice the depths of despair that each of his four main characters is experiencing. The interaction among the four is narrated as an ‘ebb and flow’ of life and its experiences.” – Sound Commentary
