Podrobný popis:

Publikace: Station Eleven - Emily St. John Mandel. An audacious, darkly glittering novel set in the eerie days of

civilization's collapse, Station Eleven tells the spellbinding

story of a Hollywood star, his would-be savior, and a nomadic group

of actors roaming the scattered outposts of the Great Lakes region,

risking everything for art and humanity.

One snowy night Arthur Leander, a famous actor, has a heart attack

onstage during a production of King Lear. Jeevan Chaudhary, a

paparazzo-turned-EMT, is in the audience and leaps to his aid. A

child actress named Kirsten Raymonde watches in horror as Jeevan

performs CPR, pumping Arthur's chest as the curtain drops, but

Arthur is dead. That same night, as Jeevan walks home from the

theater, a terrible flu begins to spread. Hospitals are flooded and

Jeevan and his brother barricade themselves inside an apartment,

watching out the window as cars clog the highways, gunshots ring

out, and life disintegrates around them.

Fifteen years later, Kirsten is an actress with the Traveling

Symphony. Together, this small troupe moves between the settlements

of an altered world, performing Shakespeare and music for scattered

communities of survivors. Written on their caravan, and tattooed on

Kirsten's arm is a line from Star Trek: "Because survival is

insufficient." But when they arrive in St. Deborah by the Water,

they encounter a violent prophet who digs graves for anyone who

dares to leave.

Spanning decades, moving back and forth in time, and vividly

depicting life before and after the pandemic, this suspenseful,

elegiac novel is rife with beauty. As Arthur falls in and out of

love, as Jeevan watches the newscasters say their final good-byes,

and as Kirsten finds herself caught in the crosshairs of the

prophet, we see the strange twists of fate that connect them all. A

novel of art, memory, and ambition, Station Eleven tells a story

about the relationships that sustain us, the ephemeral nature of

fame, and the beauty of the world as we know it. Publikace: Station Eleven - Emily St. John Mandel. Station Eleven - Emily StJohn Mandel. 'Glorious, unexpected, superbly written; just try putting it down' -- The Times What was lost in the collapse: almost everything, almost everyone, but there is still such beauty.

The world will never be the same again. Twenty years later Kirsten, an actress in the Travelling Symphony, performs Shakespeare in the settlements that have grown up since the collapse. But then her newly hopeful world is threatened. If civilization was lost, what would you preserve? And how far would you go to protect it? 'Emily St. John Mandel's Station Eleven is that rare find that feels familiar and extraordinary at the same time. This is truly something special.' -- Erin Morgenstern, author of The Night Circus Station Eleven - Emi
