Paul Auster, der bekannte amerikanische Bestsellerautor, legt in Gestalt eines Rätselspiels sein bisher umfangreichstes Werk und Opus magnum vor: die vierfach unterschiedlich erzählte Geschichte eines jungen Amerikaners in den fünfziger und sechziger Jahren des 20. Jahrhunderts – ein Epos voll mit Politik, Zeitgeschichte, Liebe, Leidenschaft und dem wechselvollen Spiel des Zufalls. «4 3 2 1» – das sind vier Variationen eines Lebens: Archibald Ferguson, von allen nur Archie genannt, wächst im Newark der fünfziger Jahre auf. «Was für ein interessanter Gedanke», sagt er sich als kleiner Junge, «sich vorzustellen, wie für ihn alles anders sein könnte, auch wenn er selbst immer derselbe bliebe. Ja, alles war möglich, und nur weil etwas auf eine bestimmte Weise geschah, hieß das noch lange nicht, dass es nicht auch auf eine andere Weise geschehen konnte.» Im Verein mit der höheren Macht einer von Paul Auster raffiniert dirigierten literarischen Vorsehung entspinnen sich nun vier unterschiedliche Versionen von Archies Leben: provinziell und bescheiden; kämpferisch, aber vom Unglück verfolgt; betroffen und besessen von den Ereignissen der Zeit; künstlerisch genial begabt und nach den Sternen greifend. Und alle vier sind vollgepackt mit Abenteuern, Liebe, Lebenskämpfen und den Schlägen eines unberechenbaren Schicksals ... «4 3 2 1» ist ein faszinierendes Gedankenspiel und ein Höhepunkt in Austers Schaffen. Seine großen Themen, das Streben nach Glück, die Rolle des Zufalls, Politik und Zeitgeschichte von Hiroshima bis Vietnam – alle sind hier versammelt und verdichtet in den hoffnungsvollen Lebenswegen eines jungen Mannes, der sein Glück in der Welt zu finden sucht. (Einige Kapitel mit Nummerierung, aber ohne Text in diesem Buch sind künstlerische Absicht des Autors, keine technischen Fehler.)

“Terrifically intelligent, moving, and entertaining.” –The New York Sun “With snappy dialogue [and] intelligent prose . . . Begley paints a memorable portrait of lasting friendship and of the strength required to step outside of the expectations that surround each of us.” –Rocky Mountain News At the beginning of the 1950s, three disparate young men are thrown together as roommates at Harvard College: Henry White, a Polish-Jewish refugee who survived World War II by hiding in Poland; Archibald P. Palmer III, an Army brat; and Sam Standish, ostensibly the scion of a fine New England family who has just learned that he was adopted at birth by parents he cannot respect. Each seeks to come to terms with his identity or to remake it altogether. Henry’s task is especially daunting: He is determined to live as an American, free of the shackles of his hideous past. But reinvention is a bargain with the devil, and over the years each will find that it comes at a high cost, challenging one’s honor and loyalty to parents, friends, and ultimately oneself. BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Louis Begley's Memories of a Marriage. “Absorbing . . . In full Henry James mode, Begley uses a lucid prose style to dispassionately eviscerate the upper classes even as he illuminates the true meaning of friendship.” –Booklist “The final moral crisis of Henry’s life [is] gorgeously evoked. . . . Begley’s analysis of class and anti-Semitism in America is often brilliant.” –The Washington Post Book World “A moving tale . . . [Begley’s] technique demands attention–and richly rewards it.” –The New York Observer “An elegant novel of enduring friendship.” –Publishers Weekly (starred review)
