Anglais Falling Man (édition en anglais)

À propos

There is September 11 and then there are the days after, and finally the years. Falling Man begins in the smoke and ash of the burning towers and traces the aftermath of this global tremor in the intimate lives of a few individuals. Theirs are lives choreographed by loss, grief and the enormous force of history. ‘These are pages of magnificent force and control, DeLillo’s genius at full pelt. Reading them, you have to remind yourself to keep breathing’ New Statesman ‘Searing, profoundly unsettling. An unforgettable novel’ Sunday Times ‘A revelatory piece of writing that will stand as a testament to DeLillo’s genius’ Times Literary Supplement ‘As fine a thing as DeLillo has ever made. There are those who have called him a cold writer; I challenge them to read the astonishing and deeply moving closing pages of Falling Man without weeping’ Scotsman 'Complex, thrilling, awesome . . . This is a tremendous novel by a genuine master’ Irish Independent
