Arrival (Stories of Your Life Movie Tie-In)

Stories of Your Life and Others Film Tie In

Previously published as Stories of Your Life and Others. Includes "Story Of Your Life," the basis for the major motion picture Arrival , starring Amy Adams, Forest Whitaker, Jeremy Renner, and directed by Denis Villeneuve.
"Shining, haunting, mind-blowing tales . . . Ted Chiang is so exhilarating, so original, so stylish he just leaves you speechless." -Junot Díaz
Ted Chiang has long been known as one of the most powerful science fiction writers working today. Offering readers the dual delights of the very strange and the heartbreakingly familiar, Arrival presents characters who must confront sudden change. In "Story of Your Life," which provides the basis for the film Arrival, alien lifeforms suddenly appear on Earth. When a linguist is brought in to help communicate with them and discern their intentions, her new knowledge of their language and its nonlinear structure allows her to see future events and all the joy and pain they may bring. In each story of this incredible collection, with sharp intelligence and humor, Ted Chiang examines what it means to be alive in a world marked by uncertainty, but also by wonder.
Rezension
"Shining, haunting, mind-blowing tales . . . this collection is a pure marvel. Chiang is so exhilarating so original so stylish he just leaves you speechless. I always suggest a person read at least 52 books a year for proper mental functioning but if you only have time for one, be at peace: you found it." -Junot Díaz, author of The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao
"Meticulously pieced together, utterly thought through, Chiang's stories emerge slowly . . . but with the perfection of slow-growing crystal." -Lev Grossman, Best of the Decade: Science Fiction and Fantasy, Techland.com
"Ted Chiang is one of the best and smartest writers working today. If you don't know his name, let's fix that. Now." -Karen Joy Fowler, author of We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves
"Ted Chiang astonishes. You must read him." -Kelly Link, author of Get in Trouble
"United by a humane intelligence that speaks very directly to the reader, and makes us experience each story with immediacy and Chiang's calm passion." -China Mieville, The Guardian
"Ted is a national treasure . . . each of those stories is a goddamned jewel." -Cory Doctorow, BoingBoing
"Confirms that blending science and fine art at this length can produce touching works, tales as intimate as our own blood cells, with the structural strength of just-discovered industrial alloys." - Seattle Times
"Chiang derides lazy thinking, weasels it out of its hiding place, and leaves it cowering." - Washington Post
"Essential. You won't know SF if you don't read Ted Chiang." -Greg Bear
"Chiang writes seldom, but his almost unfathomably wonderful stories tick away with the precision of a Swiss watch-and explode in your awareness with shocking, devastating force." - Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)
"The first must-read SF book of the year." - Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)
"He puts the science back in science fiction-brilliantly." - Booklist (Starred Review)
