by Chris Roberts on Nov 15, 2010

Paul Auster's "Sunset Park:" Rather thinking a few snapshots of a run down building in Sunset Park will do, Paul Auster races back to his multi-million-dollar brownstone self-satisfied. Sitting at a table, a Miro or is it a Warhol, on the wall behind him, he sketches out a tale of the young and the disenfranchised not having spent a day living on his, keyword, "imagined" mean streets.
