Sunset Park by Paul Auster

Meet at the tables by the cafe. When you enter, this will be the front right corner of the store.

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.

      I wonder if we're too harsh? Or is there room to improve our book selection process?

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
