The Other Wind by Ursula K. Le Guin Summary

A masterpiece of chilling narration' GUARDIAN 'Wise, graceful, classic myth-making' THE SCOTSMAN The wizard Alder comes from Roke to the island of Gont in search of the Archmage, Lord Sparrowhawk, once known as Ged. The man who was once the most powerful wizard in the Islands now lives with his wife Tenar and their adopted daughter Tehanu. Alder needs help: his beloved wife died and in his dreams she calls him to the land of the dead - and now the dead are haunting him, begging for release. He can no longer sleep, and the Wizards of Earthsea are worried. But there is more at stake than the unquiet rest of one minor wizard: for the dragons of Earthsea have arisen, to reclaim the lands that were once theirs. Only Tehanu, herself daughter of a dragon, can talk to them; it may be that Alder's dreams hold the key to the salvation of Earthsea and all the peoples who live there.

Excerpt: The Left Hand of Darkness is a 1969 science fiction novel by Ursula K. Le Guin. It is part of the Hainish Cycle, a series of books by Le Guin all set in the fictional Hainish universe. Harold Bloom wrote in the introduction to his anthology of criticism on the book that "Le Guin, more than Tolkien, has raised fantasy into high literature, for our time." It won the 1969 Nebula and 1970 Hugo awards, and is considered by some to be one of the first major works of feminist science fiction. Plans for a feature film and video game based on the books were announced by Phobos Entertainment Holdings in 2004, but appear to have since stalled. The universe of The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula K. Le Guin appears in a series of books, beginning in 1966 with Rocannon's World, her first novel, and running through several of her early works. The series describes the interplanetary expansion started by the first race of humanity on the planet Hain, leading to the formation of the League of All Worlds, and eventually expanding to the eighty-three world collective called the Ekumen. This novel takes place many centuries in the future - no date is given, though the year 4870 has been suggested. An envoy, Genly Ai, is on a planet called Winter ("Gethen" in the language of its own people) to convince the citizens to join the Ekumen. Winter is, as its name indicates, ...

Lavinia by Ursula Le Guin Summary

Comme Hélène de Sparte j’ai causé une guerre. La sienne, ce fut en se laissant prendre par les hommes qui la voulaient ; la mienne, en refusant d’être donnée, d’être prise, en choisissant mon homme et mon destin. L’homme était illustre, le destin obscur : un bon équilibre. Dans l’Énéide, Virgile ne la cite qu’une fois. Jamais il ne lui donne la parole. Prise dans les filets du poète qui n’écrira l’épopée des origines de Rome que des siècles plus tard et sans avoir le temps de l’achever avant sa mort, Lavinia transforme sa condition en destin. De ce qui sera écrit elle fait une vie de son choix. Et cela dans la douceur amère et la passion maîtrisée que suscite son improbable position : elle se veut libre mais tout est dit. Lavinia a obtenu le Locus Award 2009, le prix de la plus prestigieuse revue américaine consacrée au domaine de l’imaginaire. C’est, en dit le critique, « certainement le meilleur ouvrage pour adultes de l’auteur depuis des décennies »

The Farthest Shore by Ursula K. Le Guin Summary

'A Wizard of Earthsea reads like the retelling of a tale first told centuries ago, and whose twists and turns have been handed down through generations of storytellers. It is timeless. . . . Le Guin's words are magical. Drink this magic up. Drown in it. Dream it' David Mitchell, author of CLOUD ATLAS '[This] trilogy made me look at the world in a new way, imbued everything with a magic that was so much deeper than the magic I'd encountered before then. This was a magic of words, a magic of true speaking' Neil Gaiman Book Three of Ursula K. Le Guin's Earthsea Cycle Darkness threatens to overtake Earthsea: the world and its wizards are losing their magic. Despite being wearied with age, Ged Sparrowhawk - Archmage, wizard, and dragonlord -- embarks on a daring, treacherous journey, accompanied by Enlad's young Prince Arren, to discover the reasons behind this devastating pattern of loss. Together they will sail to the farthest reaches of their world -- even beyond the realm of death - as they seek to restore magic to a land desperately thirsty for it.

Cartographie des nuages by David Mitchell Summary

Adam Ewing est un homme de loi américain, embarqué à bord d’une goélette partie de Nouvelle-Zélande et faisant route vers San Francisco, sa ville natale. Il n’a rien à voir avec Robert Frobisher, lequel, un siècle plus tard, se met au service d’un compositeur génial pour échapper à ses créanciers. Ni l’un ni l’autre ne peuvent connaître Luisa Rey, une journaliste d’investigation sur la piste d’un complot nucléaire, dans la Californie des années 70. Ou Sonmi~451, un clone condamné à mort par un État situé dans le futur.Pourtant, si l’espace et le temps les séparent, tous ces êtres participent d’un destin commun, dont la signification se révèle peu à peu. Chaque vie est l’écho d’une autre et revient sans cesse, telle une phrase musicale qui se répéterait au fil d’innombrables variations.Comme Écrits fantômes (2004), Cartographie des nuages invite le lecteur à plonger dans un des univers romanesques les plus singuliers du XXIe siècle.
