Thursday: Paul Auster at Book Court

By Lisa M. Collins

Nov. 18, 7 p.m.: Famous Brooklyn writer Paul Auster will read from his new novel, Sunset Park. NPR calls the book, Auster’s 14th novel, an “exquisitely crafted, surprisingly tender new novel.” The story follows book publisher Morris Heller, who, as NPR tells it, “eats breakfast on New Year’s Day 2009 at Joe Junior’s, a diner in the West Village where he last spoke with his estranged son Miles. The painful precision of how long it has been since he’s seen his son — “more than two thousand seven hundred days ago” — resonates for anyone who has been on either end of a serious parent-adult child rift.”
