Dans la banlieue de Londres, au début des années vingt, Virginia Woolf lutte contre la folie qui la guette. Elle entame l'écriture de son grand roman, Mrs Dalloway. Plus de vingt ans après, à Los Angeles, Laura Brown lit cet ouvrage : une expérience si forte qu'elle songe à changer radicalement de vie. A New York, aujourd'hui, Clarissa Vaughn, version moderne de Mrs Dalloway, soutient Richard, un ami poète atteint du sida. Comment ces histoires vont-elles se rejoindre, comment ces trois femmes vont-elles former une seule et même chaîne ? La littérature est si puissante qu'un chef-d'oeuvre peut, par-delà les époques, modifier irrévocablement l'existence de celles qui le côtoient

Leviafan = Leviathan by Lucien Castaing-Taylor( Visual )

10 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in Russian and Undetermined and held by 803 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Der korrupte Bürgermeister einer kleinen russischen Stadt setzt alle Mittel politischer Repression ein, um einem sturköpfigen Mechaniker dessen markant an der Barentsee gelegenes Landstück abzujagen. Dessen Auflehnen gegen die Autorität scheint angesichts der umfassenden Verflechtung der staatlichen Organe und ihrer Sanktionierung durch die orthodoxe Kirche von Beginn an zum Scheitern verurteilt. Das in überwältigenden Bildern fotografierte Drama gibt sich durch erzählerische und visuelle Details als moderne Variation der biblischen Hiobsgeschichte zu erkennen, wobei es das wieder erstarkende Bündnis aus Klerus und Nomenklatura als ein alles verschlingendes Ungeheuer kritisiert." []
