    Marie-Laure lives with her father in Paris near the Museum of Natural History, where he works as the master of its thousands of locks. When she is six, Marie-Laure goes blind and her father builds a perfect miniature of their neighborhood so she can memorize it by touch and navigate her way home. When she is 12, the Nazis occupy Paris and father and daughter flee to the walled citadel of Saint-Malo, where Marie-Laure’s reclusive great-uncle lives in a tall house by the sea. With them they carry what might be the museum’s most valuable and dangerous jewel.

    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 neighbourhood, 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.

    The exquisitely crafted stories in Anthony Doerr's acclaimed debut collection take listeners 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 - and conjures nature in both its beautiful abundance and crushing power.

    Anthony Doerr, a Guggenheim Fellow, has had his fiction honored with three O. Henry Prizes and the Rome Prize, among other accolades. This collection’s titular story won the National Magazine Award for Fiction, and each poignant tale touches in some way on the elusiveness of memory and on humans’ daily interactions with fleeting - and not so fleeting - remembrances.

    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.

    Le livre d'Anthony Doerr possède la puissance et le souffle des chefs-d'œuvre. Il nous entraîne, du Paris de l'Occupation à l'effervescence de la Libération, dans le sillage de deux héros dont la guerre va bouleverser l'existence : Marie-Laure, une jeune aveugle, réfugiée avec son père à Saint-Malo, et Werner, un orphelin, véritable génie des transmissions électromagnétiques, dont les talents sont exploités par la Wehrmacht pour briser la Résistance. En entrecroisant le destin de ces deux personnages, ennemis malgré eux, dans le décor crépusculaire d'une ville pilonnée par les bombes, Anthony Doerr dessine une fresque d'une beauté envoûtante.

    Saint-Malo 1944: Marie-Laure, ein junges, blindes Mädchen, ist mit ihrem Vater, der am "Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle" arbeitet, aus dem besetzten Paris zu ihrem kauzigen Onkel in die Stadt am Meer geflohen. Einst hatte er ihr ein Modell der Pariser Nachbarschaft gebastelt, damit sie sich besser zurechtfinden kann. Nun ist in einem Modell Saint-Malos der vielleicht kostbarste Schatz aus dem Museum versteckt, den auch die Nazis jagen.

    Werner Hausner, ein schmächtiger Waisenjunge aus dem Ruhrgebiet, wird wegen seiner technischen Begabung gefördert, auf eine Napola geschickt und dann in eine Wehrmachtseinheit gesteckt, die mit Peilgeräten Feindsender aufspürt, über die sich der Widerstand organisiert. Während Marie-Laures Vater von den Deutschen verschleppt und verhört wird, dringt Werners Einheit nach Saint-Malo vor, auf der Suche nach dem Sender, über den Etienne, Marie-Laures Onkel, die Résistance mit Daten versorgt...

    Kunstvoll und spannend, mit einer wunderschönen Sprache und einem detaillierten Wissen um die Kriegsereignisse, den Einsatz des Radios, Widerstandscodes, Jules Verne und vieles andere erzählt Anthony Doerr mit einer Reihe unvergesslicher Figuren eine Geschichte aus dem zweiten Weltkrieg, und vor allem die Geschichte von Marie-Laure und Werner, zwei Jugendlichen, deren Lebenswege sich für einen folgenreichen Augenblick kreuzen.

    Gewinner des Pulitzer-Preises 2014, Finalist beim National Book Award 2014 sowie "Best Book of 2014" der New York Times Book Review.
