The Fall of 2008 — the very peak of the financial crisis — was a moment in time that nobody’s really anxious to live through again. But we are still living with the aftereffects: the foreclosure crisis, high unemployment, general economic uncertainty.

The latest book from novelist Paul Auster, Sunset Park, follows four people during the winter of 2008, just following the height of that crisis. It begins, the book does, really, the way the whole crisis started: with homes.
