I did this New York Times Book Review piece a couple weeks back, and it ran in yesterday's Sunday paper. For the new Paul Auster novel,
4 3 2 1:
The book follows the formative years of Archie Ferguson, through four, alternate, parallel lives. One of the few commonalities between all these lives: Amy Schneiderman. As Tom Perrotta's review remarks: "The multiple love stories of Ferguson and Amy- sometimes consummated, sometimes thwarted- form the heart of the novel and bring the strengths of Auster's peculiar narrative structure into sharp focus." Read the review here, or pick up a copy of the book. Thank you to Matt!
