Quatrième de couverture

Quicker than the Eye is a major literary event, the first new collection in nearly a decade from America's preeminent storyteller. Here Ray Bradbury, at the height of his powers, displays with a sorcerer's skill the imagination and warmth that has earned him a well-deserved reputation as one of our greatest living writers. These twenty-one stories run the gamut from total reality to light fantastic, from high noon to long after midnight. Amazing characters throng these pages: a man who creates symphonies from the songs of birds, a boy, now grown, who finds the one place where you can go home again, an ancient couple who compete in wild assassination games. Here a lost life is redeemed by dance, a family detours down a sideroad of alternate futures, a Witch Door links two intolerant centuries, a woman and her husband are simultaneously renewed, molecule by molecule, every nine years, while the secret of growing young, and mad, is revealed.
