El cielo de medianoche / Good Morning, Midnight

$18.95

Augie es el último astrónomo en el Ártico. Todos los demás se han ido. Quedarse ya no es seguro, pero Augie no piensa irse a ningún otro sitio. Hasta que aparece Iris, una niña poco habladora y ajena al fin que parece acercarse, y las cosas cambian.

¿Cómo sacará a la niña de la región helada? Su única esperanza es una vieja radio, pero nadie recoge la señal...

Sully está, junto a sus colegas astronautas, perdida en el espacio. La misión espacial Aether lleva dos años en órbita y ahora espera instrucciones para el regreso a Tierra. Salvo que esas instrucciones no llegan, solo hay silencio. ¿Por qué todo el mundo en la Tierra parece haber desaparecido?

Puede que, a estas alturas, Augie y Sully sean las únicas personas delante de una radio. Si tan solo consiguiesen contactar, tal vez lograsen ayudarse el uno al otro. Tal vez, con suerte, Sully e Iris podrían volver a casa. Y Augie encontrar la suya.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

“A remarkable and gifted debut novel” (Colson Whitehead) about two outsiders—a lonely scientist in the Arctic and an astronaut trying to return to Earth—as they grapple with love, regret, and survival in a world transformed. 

THE INSPIRATION FOR THE NETFLIX ORIGINAL FILM THE MIDNIGHT SKY, DIRECTED BY AND STARRING GEORGE CLOONEY

Augustine, a brilliant, aging astronomer, is consumed by the stars. For years he has lived in remote outposts, studying the sky for evidence of how the universe began. At his latest posting, in a research center in the Arctic, news of a catastrophic event arrives. The scientists are forced to evacuate, but Augustine stubbornly refuses to abandon his work. Shortly after the others have gone, Augustine discovers a mysterious child, Iris, and realizes that the airwaves have gone silent. They are alone.

At the same time, Mission Specialist Sullivan is aboard the Aether on its return flight from Jupiter. The astronauts are the first human beings to delve this deep into space, and Sully has made peace with the sacrifices required of her: a daughter left behind, a marriage ended. So far the journey has been a success. But when Mission Control falls inexplicably silent, Sully and her crewmates are forced to wonder if they will ever get home.

As Augustine and Sully each face an uncertain future against forbidding yet beautiful landscapes, their stories gradually intertwine in a profound and unexpected conclusion. In crystalline prose, Good Morning, Midnight poses the most important questions: What endures at the end of the world? How do we make sense of our lives? Lily Brooks-Dalton’s captivating debut is a meditation on the power of love and the bravery of the human heart.

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY SHELF AWARENESS AND THE CHICAGO REVIEW OF BOOKS

“Stunningly gorgeous . . . The book contemplates the biggest questions—What is left at the end of the world? What is the impact of a life’s work?”—Portland Mercury 

“A beautifully written, sparse post-apocalyptic novel that explores memory, loss and identity . . . Fans of Emily St. John Mandel’s Station Eleven and Kim Stanley Robinson’s Aurora will appreciate the Brooks-Dalton’s exquisite exploration of relationships in extreme environments.”—The Washington Post
