Paul Auster Reads from New Novel, Sunset Park

This week, Paul Auster releases his 16th novel, Sunset Park, which gives literary expression to the economic misfortunes weighing on the country. The foreclosures. The unemployment. The recession and depression. The novel starts to paint the desperate picture quickly. Above, we have Paul Auster reading the beginning pages, and you can follow along with this transcript posted online by American Public Media.

Auster also happens to narrate the entire audio version of Sunset Park, and, as previously mentioned here, you can download a free audio copy of the novel (or pretty much any other book of your choice) if you register for a 14-day free trial of Once the trial is over, you can continue your Audible subscription, or cancel it. It’s up to you. But, either way, you keep the book.

Thanks to Mike for spotting the Auster reading…
