Des milliards de tapis de cheveux by Andreas Eschbach Summary

Nœud après nœud, jour après jour, toute une vie durant, ses mains répétaient les mêmes gestes, nouant et renouant sans cesse les fins cheveux, comme son père et le père de son père l’avaient fait avant lui... N’est-ce pas étrange qu’un monde entier s’adonne ainsi au tissage de tapis de cheveux ? l’objet en est, dit-on, d’orner le Palais des Étoiles, la demeure de l’Empereur. Mais qu’en est-il de l’Empereur lui-même ? N’entend-on pas qu’il aurait abdiqué ? Qu’il serait mort, abattu par des rebelles ? Comment cela serait-il possible ? Le soleil brillerait-il sans lui ? Les étoiles brilleraient-elles encore au firmament ? L’Empereur, les rebelles, des milliards de tapis de cheveux ; il est long le chemin qui mène à la vérité, de la cité de Yahannochia au Palais des Étoiles, et jusqu’au Palais des Larmes sur un monde oublié... Né en 1959, Andreas Eschbach est la figure de proue de la science-fiction allemande. Voici son premier livre traduit.

Alex Woods face à l'univers by Gavin Extence Summary

Alex Woods sait que sa vie n’a pas commencé de façon très conventionnelle. Il sait que grandir au côté d’une mère célibataire qui exerce l’activité de voyante ne l’aidera pas à se faire aimer des petits caïds de son collège. Il sait aussi que les événements les plus improbables peuvent survenir – ses cicatrices sont là pour le prouver. Ce qu’il ne sait pas encore, c’est que de sa rencontre avec M. Peterson, un veuf au tempérament acariâtre reclus dans sa propriété, va naître une amitié inattendue. Cet ami lui apprendra qu’on ne vit qu’une seule fois et qu’il faut toujours veiller à faire les meilleurs choix possibles. C’est pourquoi, lorsqu’il se fait arrêter par la douane en possession de 113 grammes de marijuana, avec une urne remplie de cendres posée sur le siège passager, et après avoir déclenché une tempête médiatique dans le pays tout entier, il reste persuadé d’avoir fait ce qui était juste.

El Proyecto Esposa by Graeme Simsion Summary

Hilarante, sorprendente, ingeniosa, El Proyecto Esposa tiene un protagonista excepcional: el inteligente, obsesivo y literal Don Tillman, para quien navegar por este mundo de emociones complejas e incoherentes, poblado por seres que a menudo dicen exactamente lo contrario de lo que piensan, constituye una tarea tan ardua como desconcertante.«Me llamo Don Tillman, tengo treinta y nueve años y soy profesor adjunto de Genética en la Universidad de Melbourne. Mi trabajo está bien remunerado, me alimento de forma equilibrada y regular, y mi condición física es óptima. En el reino animal, no tendría ninguna dificultad para aparearme, pero en el humano, nunca he logrado tener una segunda cita con la misma mujer. Los motivos de mi fracaso no termino de entenderlos, y como las estadísticas muestran que los hombres casados son, en promedio, más felices y viven más tiempo, he decidido poner en marcha un programa vital para mí, el Proyecto Esposa. A tal fin, he creado un algoritmo perfecto que me permitirá excluir las candidatas inadecuadas: las fumadoras, las impuntuales, las desorganizadas, las que dedican demasiado tiempo a su aspecto exterior... en suma, todas aquellas que no respondan a los estrictos criterios que se exponen en el cuestionario de dieciséis páginas que he elaborado. Este libro es el informe científico -aunque me han explicado que hay que denominarlo novela- acerca del resultado de mi proyecto. Quien lo lea descubrirá que la candidata menos apropiada se llama Rosie; y también encontrará la respuesta a una pregunta fundamental: ¿puede el amor cambiar la vida de una persona, incluso de un individuo como yo?»
