Description

With his masterful first collection, multiple-award-winning author Ted Chiang deftly blends human emotion and scientific rationalism in eight remarkably diverse stories, all told in his trademark precise and evocative prose.

From a soaring Babylonian tower that connects a flat Earth with the firmament above, to a world where angelic visitations are a wondrous and terrifying part of everyday life; from a neural modification that eliminates the appeal of physical beauty, to an alien language that challenges our very perception of time and reality…Chiang’s rigorously imagined fantasia invites us to question our understanding of the universe and our place in it.

‘Story of Your Life’, the fourth story in the collection, has now been filmed as Arrival: a major motion picture starring Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner and Academy Award-winner, Forest Whitaker.
