Paul Auster Makes the 2017 Man Booker Prize Longlist for Fiction with 4 3 2 1

We are incredibly proud of Paul Auster and his novel, 4 3 2 1, on making the 2017 Man Booker Prize longlist for fiction. Paul is in good company among diverse and talented authors competing for the Man Booker prize including Zadie Smith, previous Man Booker Prize winner Arundhati Roy, and Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award winner Colson Whitehead.  The Man Booker Prize is a prestigious and to have made this list is wonderful achievement.

4 3 2 1 is Paul’s first novel in seven years. It is an unforgettable tour de force following four lives of its protagonist, Archibald Isaac Ferguson. Loves, friendships, and intellectual passions contrast as four Fergusons made of the same genetic material, four boys who are the same boy, live four parallel and entirely different lives. Heralded as “a work of outsize ambition and remarkable craft, a monumental assemblage of competing and complementary fictions, a novel that contains multitudes” by The New York Times Book Review, 4 3 2 1 is as inventive and dexterously constructed as anything Paul has ever written.

The Man Booker Prize shortlist will be announced in September. You can buy 4 3 2 1 on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or your local independent book store.
