NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE Previously published as Stories of Your Life and Others With his masterful first collection, multiple-award-winning author Ted Chiang deftly blends human emotion and scientific rationalism in eight remarkably diverse stories, all told in his trademark precise and evocative prose.From a soaring Babylonian tower that connects a flat Earth with the heavens above, to a world where angelic visitations are a wondrous and terrifying part of everyday life; from a neural modification that eliminates the appeal of physical beauty, to an alien language that challenges our very perception of time and reality. . .Chiang's rigorously imagined fantasia invites us to question our understanding of the universe and our place in it.Copies of Arrival will feature either Amy Adams or Jeremy Renner on the cover.
