Paperback Launch: Paul Auster presents 4 3 2 1
Wine reception to follow
Paul Auster, Brooklyn literary icon and award-winning author of The New York Trilogy, presents his latest work, the sweeping, inventive, and heartbreaking 4 3 2 1, just released in paperback. March, 1947 in Newark, New Jersey: Archibald Isaac Ferguson is born. From that single beginning, Ferguson's life will take four simultaneous and independent fictional paths. Four identical Fergusons made of the same DNA, four boys who are the same boy, go on to lead four parallel and entirely different lives. Family fortunes diverge. Athletic skills and sex lives and friendships and intellectual passions contrast; meanwhile, the mortal plot of each Ferguson’s life rushes on. Recently short-listed for the Man Booker prize, with a passion for realism and a fierce attachment to history, 4 3 2 1 is a marvelous and unforgettable tour de force. Auster presents his latest novel at Greenlight, with a signing, Q&A, and wine reception to follow to celebrate the paperback launch.
