In a Travel + Leisure interview last year, Paul Auster said, “A couple of years ago I was thinking of setting a new novel in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, and in walking around the neighborhood, I visited Green-Wood Cemetery for the first time. In fact, maybe it was the cemetery that convinced me to write the novel . . . I had no idea [Green-Wood was] . . . one of the most remarkable places in all of New York City.”
We are thrilled to host Auster’s first official appearance at Green-Wood for a book talk about his latest novel, Sunset Park. This passionate novel about contemporary America and its ghosts follows the hopes and fears of a cast of unforgettable characters brought together during the 2008 economic collapse, including a group of young people squatting in a Sunset Park apartment.
