Stories of Your Life and Others
by Ted Chiang
“Shining, haunting, mind-blowing tales . . . Ted 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
Stories of Your Life and Others delivers dual delights of the very, very strange and the heartbreakingly familiar, often presenting characters who must confront sudden change—the inevitable rise of automatons or the appearance of aliens—with some sense of normalcy. With sharp intelligence and humor, Chiang examines what it means to be alive in a world marked by uncertainty, but also by beauty and wonder. An award-winning collection from one of today's most lauded writers, Stories of Your Life and Others is a contemporary classic.
Soon to be a major motion picture from Paramount Pictures starring Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, and Forest Whitaker and directed by Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners, Sicario).
