“What if…?” is the question that echoes throughout 4321, the latest book from acclaimed American author Paul Auster. This monumental novel tells the story of a young man of Jewish origin, born in 1947 and living in New Jersey. Intertwining reality and fiction, this documentary uses the work of literature as a springboard to explore contemporary US politics and history. Richly interspersed with extracts from interviews, including with Auster’s wife, Siri Hustvedt, the film takes a closer look at the work and preoccupations of a giant of American literature.
