Аннотация к книге "Piranesi" Clarke S.:
Just read Susanna Clarkes extraordinary Piranesi ... Like nothing else Justine Jordan, GuardianThe long-awaited return from the author of the multi-million copy bestselling Jonathan Strange & Mr NorrellPiranesi lives in the House. Perhaps he always has.
In his notebooks, day after day, he makes a clear and careful record of its wonders: the labyrinth of halls, the thousands upon thousands of statues, the tides that thunder up staircases, the clouds that move in slow procession through the upper halls. On Tuesdays and Fridays Piranesi sees his friend, the Other. At other times he brings tributes of food and waterlilies to the Dead.
But mostly, he is alone. Messages begin to appear, scratched out in chalk on the pavements. There is someone new in the House.
