    Paul Austers største, mest hjerteskærende og overbevisende roman. En overvældende og overraskende fortælling om arv og miljø, om kærlighed og livet selv. Den 3. marts 1947 bliver Archibald Isaac Ferguson født på hospitalet i New Jersey. Fra det øjeblik han kommer til verden, tager familiens liv fire samtidige og uafhængige retninger. Hver af de fire versioner af Ferguson bliver tryllebundet af den skønne og mageløse Amy Schneiderman, og hver af de fire Ferguson'er får hver deres egen helt enestående relation til hende. Som læser følger man alle fire i medgang og modgang. Forskellige liv og dog det samme.

    Paul Auster zieht Bilanz, die Bilanz eines intensiv gelebten Lebens. Winter Journal ist eine poetische, zarte Autobiographie. Der Autor nimmt den Hörer mit zu all den Orten, an denen er lebte. Er lässt seine Liebesbeziehungen Revue passieren: viele kleine, einige große, immer aber leidenschaftlich gelebte. Und dann - dreißig Jahre lang - nur noch eine, die große Liebe zu Siri Hustvedt. Er erzählt über seine Kinder, ihr Aufwachsen, ihre Selbstständigkeit. Er beschreibt seine Blessuren, Krankheiten und Süchte.
