Synopsis : In the drowsy tranquility of Little Belaire, the Truthful Speakers lead lives of peaceful self-sufficiency ignoring the depopulated wilderness beyond their narrow borders. It is a society untouched by pain or violence and the self-destroying 'Angels' of the past are barely remembered. But when Rush That Speaks leaves his home on a pilgrimage of self-enlightenment, he finds a landscape haunted by myths and memories. The overgrown ruins reflect a world outside that is stranger than his people ever dreamed ...
A propos de l'auteur: John Crowley was born in Maine in 1942 and grew up in Vermont, Kentucky and Indiana before moving to New York and taking up work in documentary films - an occupation he still pursues alongside his writing. THE DEEP, his first SF novel, was published in 1975 and was followed by BEASTS, ENGINE SUMMER and GREAT WORK OF TIME. With the publication of LITTLE, BIG in 1981 he won the WORLD FANTASY AWARD and was shortlisted for the HUGO, NEBULA and BSFA AWARDS.
