Anthony Doerr - La ​luz que no puedes ver
Un ​corazón puro puede brillar aun en la noche más oscura. Y en el más terrible de los tiempos. Marie-Laure es una joven ciega que vive con su padre en París, donde él trabaja como responsable de las mil cerraduras del Museo de Historia Natural. Cuando los nazis ocupan la capital, padre e hija deben huir con la más preciada y peligrosa joya del museo. Werner es un muchacho huérfano criado en un pueblo minero de Alemania y fascinado por la fabricación y reparación de aparatos de radio, un talento que no ha pasado desapercibido a las Juventudes Hitlerianas. Siguiendo al ejército alemán, Werner deberá atravesar Europa hasta que su camino y el de Marie-Laure por fin se crucen. Destinados a ser enemigos y a crecer entre la destrucción, los inolvidables protagonistas de esta hermosa novela se convertirán en pequeños héroes cuya inocencia vencerá incluso a la guerra.

Anthony Doerr - Cloud ​Cuckoo Land
From ​the Pulitzer Prize–winning author of All the Light We Cannot See, perhaps the most bestselling and beloved literary fiction of our time, comes a triumph of imagination and compassion, a soaring novel about children on the cusp of adulthood in a broken world, who find resilience, hope, and story. The heroes of Cloud Cuckoo Land are trying to figure out the world around them: Anna and Omeir, on opposite sides of the formidable city walls during the 1453 siege of Constantinople; teenage idealist Seymour in an attack on a public library in present day Idaho; and Konstance, on an interstellar ship bound for an exoplanet, decades from now. Like Marie-Laure and Werner in All the Light We Cannot See, Anna, Omeir, Seymour, and Konstance are dreamers and outsiders who find resourcefulness and hope in the midst of peril. An ancient text—the story of Aethon, who longs to be turned into a bird so that he can fly to a utopian paradise in the sky—provides solace and mystery to these unforgettable characters. Doerr has created a tapestry of times and places that reflects our vast interconnectedness—with other species, with each other, with those who lived before us and those who will be here after we’re gone. Dedicated to “the librarians then, now, and in the years to come,” Cloud Cuckoo Land is a hauntingly beautiful and redemptive novel about stewardship—of the book, of the Earth, of the human heart.

Anthony Doerr - Le ​Mur de mémoire
De ​l’Afrique du Sud à la Lituanie, de l’Allemagne nazie à la banlieue de Cleveland, les six nouvelles d’Anthony Doerr proposent un voyage troublant dans l’espace et à travers le temps. Le temps de la mémoire qui relie, comme un fil fragile, les personnages, tous hantés par la perte ou la résurgence de leur passé et confrontés à ce manque vertigineux de ce qui a été mais n’est plus. À l’image d’Alma, une veuve septuagénaire de Cape Town, à qui l’on tente curieusement de voler ses plus précieux souvenirs, dans la magnifique nouvelle qui donne son titre au recueil. _L’écriture vivante, séquencée, cache bien la sophistication du style magistral d’Anthony Doerr._ ______Liliane Kerjan, La Quinzaine littéraire. _« Ces nouvelles éclairent très subtilement les liens fragiles qui relient notre présent et notre passé, en montrant à quel point nos destins sont façonnés par la mémoire. »_ ______André Clavel, Lire.

Anthony Doerr - The ​Shell Collector
The ​"perilously beautiful" (Boston Globe) first story collection by the author of the acclaimed Pulitzer Prize-winning #1 New York Times bestseller All The Light We Cannot See. The exquisitely crafted stories in Anthony Doerr’s debut collection take readers from the African Coast to the pine forests of Montana to the damp moors of Lapland, charting a vast physical and emotional landscape. Doerr explores the human condition in all its varieties—metamorphosis, grief, fractured relationships, and slowly mending hearts—conjuring nature in both its beautiful abundance and crushing power. Some of the characters in these stories contend with hardships; some discover unique gifts; all are united by their ultimate deference to the ravishing universe outside themselves.

Anthony Doerr - Alles ​Licht das wir nicht sehen
Saint-Malo ​1944: Die erblindete Marie-Laure flieht mit ihrem Vater, einem Angestellten des „Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle“, aus dem besetzten Paris zu ihrem kauzigen Onkel in die Stadt am Meer. Verborgen in ihrem Gepäck führen sie den wahrscheinlich kostbarsten Schatz des Museums mit sich. Werner Hausner, ein schmächtiger Waisenjunge aus dem Ruhrgebiet, wird wegen seiner technischen Begabung gefördert und landet auf Umwegen in einer Spezialeinheit der Wehrmacht, die die Feindsender der Widerstandskämpfer aufzuspüren versucht. Während Marie-Laures Vater von den Deutschen verschleppt und verhört wird, dringt Werners Einheit nach Saint-Malo vor, auf der Suche nach dem Sender, der die Résistance mit Daten versorgt … Hochspannend und mit einer außergewöhnlichen Sprachkunst erzählt Anthony Doerr die berührende Geschichte von Marie-Laure und Werner, deren Lebenswege sich für einen schicksalsträchtigen Augenblick kreuzen.

Anthony Doerr - About ​Grace
David ​Winkler begins life in Anchorage, Alaska, a quiet boy drawn to the volatility of weather and obsessed with snow. Sometimes he sees things before they happen--a man carrying a hatbox will be hit by a bus; Winkler will fall in love with a woman in a supermarket. When David dreams that his infant daughter will drown in a flood as he tries to save her, he comes undone. He travels thousands of miles, fleeing family, home, and the future itself, to deny the dream. On a Caribbean island, destitute, alone, and unsure if his child has survived or his wife can forgive him, David is sheltered by a couple with a daughter of their own. Ultimately it is she who will pull him back into the world, to search for the people he left behind. Doerr's characters are full of grief and longing, but also replete with grace. His compassion for human frailty is extraordinarily moving. In luminous prose, he writes about the power and beauty of nature and about the tiny miracles that transform our lives. About Grace is heartbreaking, radiant, and astonishingly accomplished.

Anthony Doerr - Four ​Seasons in Rome
From ​the author of the acclaimed, instant New York Times bestseller All the Light We Cannot See, a "dazzling" (Azar Nafisi, author of Reading Lolita in Tehran) memoir about art and adventures in Rome. Anthony Doerr has received many awards -- from the New York Public Library, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the American Library Association. Then came the Rome Prize, one of the most prestigious awards from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and with it a stipend and a writing studio in Rome for a year. Doerr learned of the award the day he and his wife returned from the hospital with newborn twins. Exquisitely observed, Four Seasons in Rome describes Doerr's varied adventures in one of the most enchanting cities in the world. He reads Pliny, Dante, and Keats -- the chroniclers of Rome who came before him -- and visits the piazzas, temples, and ancient cisterns they describe. He attends the vigil of a dying Pope John Paul II and takes his twins to the Pantheon in December to wait for snow to fall through the oculus. He and his family are embraced by the butchers, grocers, and bakers of the neighborhood, whose clamor of stories and idiosyncratic child-rearing advice is as compelling as the city itself. This intimate and revelatory book is a celebration of Rome, a wondrous look at new parenthood, and a fascinating story of a writer's craft -- the process by which he transforms what he sees and experiences into sentences.

Anthony Doerr - All ​the Light We Cannot See
From ​the highly acclaimed, multiple award-winning Anthony Doerr, a stunningly ambitious and beautiful novel about a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II. Marie Laure lives with her father in Paris within walking distance of the Museum of Natural History where he works as the master of the locks (there are thousands of locks in the museum). When she is six, she goes blind, and her father builds her a model of their neighborhood, every house, every manhole, so she can memorize it with her fingers and navigate the real streets with her feet and cane. When the Germans occupy Paris, father and daughter flee to Saint-Malo on the Brittany coast, where Marie-Laure's agoraphobic great uncle lives in a tall, narrow house by the sea wall. In another world in Germany, an orphan boy, Werner, grows up with his younger sister, Jutta, both enchanted by a crude radio Werner finds. He becomes a master at building and fixing radios, a talent that wins him a place at an elite and brutal military academy and, ultimately, makes him a highly specialized tracker of the Resistance. Werner travels through the heart of Hitler Youth to the far-flung outskirts of Russia, and finally into Saint-Malo, where his path converges with Marie-Laure. Doerr's gorgeous combination of soaring imagination with observation is electric. Deftly interweaving the lives of Marie-Laure and Werner, Doerr illuminates the ways, against all odds, people try to be good to one another. Ten years in the writing, All the Light We Cannot See is his most ambitious and dazzling work.

Az apja elkészíti számára Párizs tökéletes makettjét, hogy a lány tájékozódni tudjon a fények városában.

Tehetségére hamar felfigyelnek, s Werner egy náci katonai iskolában találja magát, ahol kénytelen szembesülni a rendszer embertelenségével... A náci invázió elől Marie-Laure apjával egy távoli, tengerparti kisvárosba menekül, nagyapja egykori házába, nem utolsósorban azzal a megbízatással, hogy elrejtsék a Lángok Tengerének hívott és sötét legendákkal övezett gyémántot, amelyet a megszállók égre-földre keresnek. A háború azonban hamarosan utoléri őket, és Marie-Laure retteg a hírhedt gyémánt átkától... Anthony Doerr lírai szépségű regénye két kamasz gyermek egymásba fonódó sorsán keresztül mutatja be a II. világháború embertelen poklát, a látható sötétséget, amelyből a szilánkokra tört, halványan pislogó humánum mutatja az egyedüli kiutat: a láthatatlan fényt.

Anthony Doerr - Memory ​Wall
"Ranging ​from South Korea to South Africa, Anthony Doerr brilliantly conjures the landscape of memory" (The Boston Globe) in Memory Wall. In the luminous and beautiful title story, winner of a 2010 National Magazine Award, a young boy from South Africa comes to possess an old woman's secret, a piece of the past with the power to redeem a life. In "River Nemunas", a teenage orphan moves from Kansas to Lithuania to love with her grandfather and discovers a world in which myth becomes real. "Village 113", winner of an O. Henry Prize, is about the building of the Three Gorges Dam and the seed keeper who guards the history of a village soon to be submerged. And in "Afterworld", the radiant, cathartic final story, a woman who escaped the Holocaust is haunted by visions of her childhood friends in Germany, yet finds solace in the tender ministration of her grandson. Every story in Memory Wall is a reminder of the grandeur of life - Doerr "lingers wonderfully over the details of individual lives and suggests the enormity of those billion things contained therein - mysterious, mournful, and lovely as they are" (San Fransisco Chronicle).
