With  "4 3 2 1," Paul Auster has written a massive, heartbreaking novel of birthright and possibility, of love and life itself. Nearly two weeks early, on March 3, 1947, in the maternity ward of Beth Israel Hospital in Newark, New Jersey, Archibald Isaac Ferguson, the one and only child of Rose and Stanley 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. As inventive and dexterously constructed as anything Paul Auster has ever written, yet with a passion for realism and a fierce attachment to history that readers have never seen from Auster before.

Brooklyn By the Book is a collaboration between Brooklyn Public Library, Community Bookstore, and Congregation Beth Elohim.
