Product description

From the moment Ferguson arrives in the world, his life diverges into four separate paths. Each version of his life is lived in a different way so we’re given the opportunity to see what happens when one takes the ‘road less travelled’. This book is many things: a look at the tumult and excitement of fifties and sixties America, a celebration of the influence of ‘chance’, and a love letter to the literature, music and cinema that remain constant and shape all of Ferguson’s lives.

Recommended by Anita Salter, Dubray Kilkenny

On March 3rd, 1947, Archibald Isaac Ferguson, the only child of Rose and Stanley Ferguson, is born. From that single beginning, Ferguson's life will take four simultaneous paths. Four Fergusons will go on to lead four parallel and entirely different lives. Family fortunes diverge. Loves and friendships and passions contrast. Each version of Ferguson's story rushes across the fractured terrain of mid-twentieth century America, in this sweeping story of birthright and possibility, of love and the fullness of life itself.
