A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Set in a quiet New Zealand town, this novel explores what happens when ordinary people's lives are disrupted by mysterious happenings. The author transports the reader to a realm of shifting dimensions where unquestioned beliefs fall into doubt and ordinary lives blossom in the Ancient Springtime.

Critique:

In The Carpathians, Janet Frame again calls into question the human facility to communicate. Relocated New Yorker Mattina Brecon attempts to get to know her neighbors on Kowhai Street, where she has taken up temporary residence in order to research the Memory Flower for which her new town is famous. One night she awakens to find her neighbors screaming without human language, covered by a midnight rain of glittering specks that are the ashes of language. The townspeople mysteriously disappear, leaving Mattina alone. Her own memories and the frightening novel of a stranger that tells the story of Mattina herself are all that she has to trace the mystery.
