Paul Auster, Henry Holt and Co., 4321, Waiting on Wednesday
4 3 2 1 : A Novel
Astonishing, a masterpiece, Paul Auster’s greatest, most satisfying, most vivid and heartbreaking novel--a sweeping and surprising story of inheritance, family, 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 one aunts- and unclesfilled beginning, Ferguson will take four paths, find his way from four outlooks, live four entirely different lives. And listeners will take in his pleasures and ache from the losses in each life as each precious, mortal plot rushes on.

As inventive and dexterously constructed as anything Paul Auster has ever written, yet with a passion for realism —and a great tenderness and fierce attachment to life itself—that listeners have never seen from Auster before. 4321 is gorgeous, epic, affecting and resplendent, an epic.
OUT JANUARY 31, 2017
I won a signed copy of this from the Brooklyn Book Festival Sweepstakes! This looks especially intriguing because it explores the many different paths you can take, and the inevitability of loss. I haven't read any other books by this author, but I hope it's really good.
