# Multiple authors don't fit on one line

I am working with the article class.

I have four authors. Unfortunately, they are just a tiny bit too wide to fit on one line. (I'm talking less than a quarter inch from the margins I had set.) How can I do one of the two following things:

1. Decrease the space between the authors, just a little bit
2. Make the page temporarily wider around the title

I've tried \newgeometry/\restoregeometry, but that clears the page at the commands. I've tried changepage's adjustwidth, but that makes latex output one extra page at the beginning.

Modify the definition of \and; the default is

\makeatletter
\def\and{%
\end{tabular}%
\hskip 1em \@plus.17fil\relax
\begin{tabular}[t]{c}}
\makeatother

Try reducing 1em to what fits you.
