The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

Sunset Park - Paul Auster - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of Sunset Park:

Guilt, immaturity, and self-exile.

My favorite Paul Auster quote from the book:

"Wounds are an essential part of life, and until you are wounded in some way, you cannot become a man."

Questions to ponder while reading Sunset Park:

What have you done because you felt guilty?

Should Miles have sought some help?

My thoughts about Sunset Park:

I got frustrated with Miles.

Squatting seems counterproductive.

Losing one's temper often goes badly.
