On an outwardly pleasant day in early April of 2017, the author appears in profile through the glass panels of his front door. When the buzzer sounds, Paul Auster rises from his dining-room table to welcome me. I have arrived, on the dot, at 2 p.m. to discuss his teeming new novel of the 1960s 4 3 2 1. It is a bildungsroman with a speculative twist: four different lives lived in alternating sequence by the same young man.

His work impresses readers with a highly confident style that teeters between fluid naturalism and graphic abstraction, and makes inventive use of the comics form to serve his eccentric exploration of complex narrative themes.
