內容簡介



睽違七年,保羅‧奧斯特新作──
四個平行世界、四個不同版本、四種不同可能性的人生


如果當時做了不同的選擇,現在將會如何?
如果當時走上另一條路,未來將會如何發展?
如果成長背景有所不同,人生會產生什麼改變?

出生於1947年的猶太裔美國人Archibald Isaac Ferguson,當人生的某個環節有所不同,或在人生的無數交叉口做出不同選擇,如家庭背景、成長環境、事業、友誼或興趣,他會走上什麼樣的人生?本書自傳色彩濃厚,以平凡人為主角、大時代的美國歷史為背景,探索我們常自問、卻無法親身經歷的假設:如果回到人生的分岔點、並做出不同選擇,將會導向什麼樣的結果?

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 Fergusons made of the same genetic material, four boys who are the same boy, will go on to lead four parallel and entirely different lives. Family fortunes diverge. Loves and friendships and intellectual passions contrast. Chapter by chapter, the rotating narratives evolve into an elaborate dance of inner worlds enfolded within the outer forces of history as, one by one, the intimate plot of each Ferguson's story rushes on across the tumultuous and fractured terrain of mid twentieth-century America. A boy grows up-again and again and again.

As inventive and dexterously constructed as anything Paul Auster has ever written 4 3 2 1 is an unforgettable tour de force, the crowning work of this masterful writer's extraordinary career.
