The summer guest by Justin Cronin( Book )
24 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 1,406 libraries worldwide
Winner of the PEN/Hemingway Award for his radiant novel in stories, Mary and O'Neil, Justin Cronin has already been hailed as a writer of astonishing gifts. Now Cronin's new novel, The Summer Guest, fulfills that promise-and more. With a rare combination of emotional insight, narrative power, and lyrical grace, Cronin transforms the simple story of a dying man's last wish into a rich tapestry of family love. On an evening in late summer, the great financier Harry Wainwright, nearing the end of his life, arrives at a rustic fishing camp in a remote area of Maine. He comes bearing two things: his wish for a day of fishing in a place that has brought him solace for thirty years, and an astonishing bequest that will forever change the lives of those around him. From the battlefields of Italy to the turbulence of the Vietnam era, to the private battles of love and family, The Summer Guest reveals the full history of this final pilgrimage and its meaning for four people: Jordan Patterson, the haunted young man who will guide Harry on his last voyage out; the camp's owner Joe Crosby, a Vietnam draft evader who has spent a lifetime "trying to learn what it means to be brave"; Joe's wife, Lucy, the woman Harry has loved for three decades; and Joe and Lucy's daughter Kate-the spirited young woman who holds the key to the last unopened door to the past. As their stories unfold, secrets are revealed, courage is tested, and the bonds of love are strengthened. And always center stage is the place itself-a magical, forgotten corner of New England where the longings of the human heart are mirrored in the wild beauty of the landscape. Intimate, powerful, and profound, The Summer Guest reveals Justin Cronin as a storyteller of unique and marvelous talent. It is a book to treasure

En 122 apr. V., soit 122 ans après l'apparition en Amérique du Nord d'un virus qui a décimé la population, la vie semble reprendre ses droits. Ce virus, à la suite d'une expérience gouvernementale, a été inoculé à douze personnes, qui, transformées en monstres assoiffés de sang, ont propagé le mal. Mais quelques poches de population ont réussi à combattre et à éliminer les Douze, mettant un terme à un siècle de terrifiantes ténèbres. Les survivants sortent de derrière leurs hauts murs, déterminés à reconstruire leur société, et osent désormais rêver d'un futur meilleur. Mais est-ce la fin du cauchemar ou une simple accalmie avant le déchaînement d'autres forces obscures ? Loin d'eux, dans une métropole à l'agonie, le Zéro attend. Le Premier. Le père des Douze. L'angoisse qui a brisé sa vie humaine le hante, et la haine qu'a engendrée sa transformation le brûle.

Amy et ses amis iront au-devant de leur destin. Cette épopée postapocalyptique conclut avec maestria la trilogie du Passage
