4 3 2 1: An Evening with Paul Auster

Fully Booked
Beveridge Hall

Paul Auster discussed his first novel in seven years, the extraordinary 4 3 2 1 (Faber) in which a single individual, born in 1947 in Newark, follows four divergent paths through the life and history of mid-twentieth-century America. 

Auster’s work, in prose, poetry, memoir and film, has often explored multiple and shifting identities, and in 4 3 2 1 - whose protagonist, like Auster himself, is part of the Baby-Boomer generation - he continues his uniquely powerful exploration of selfhood, time and the relationship between fiction and reality.

Auster was in conversation with author and journalist Alex Preston.
