À propos

Ken Follett's extraordinary historical epic, the Century Trilogy, reaches its sweeping, passionate conclusion. In Fall of Giants and Winter of the World , Ken Follett followed the fortunes of five international families--American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh--as they made their way through the twentieth century. Now they come to one of the most tumultuous eras of all: the 1960s through the 1980s, from civil rights, assassinations, mass political movements, and Vietnam to the Berlin Wall, the Cuban Missile Crisis, presidential impeachment, revolution--and rock and roll. East German teacher Rebecca Hoffmann discovers shes been spied on by the Stasi for years and commits an impulsive act that will affect her family for the rest of their lives. . . . George Jakes, the child of a mixed-race couple, bypasses a corporate law career to join Robert F. Kennedy's Justice Department and finds himself in the middle of not only the seminal events of the civil rights battle but a much more personal battle of his own. . . . Cameron Dewar, the grandson of a senator, jumps at the chance to do some official and unofficial espionage for a cause he believes in, only to discover that the world is a much more dangerous place than he'd imagined. . . . Dimka Dvorkin, a young aide to Nikita Khrushchev, becomes an agent both for good and for ill as the United States and the Soviet Union race to the brink of nuclear war, while his twin sister, Tanya, carves out a role that will take her from Moscow to Cuba to Prague to Warsaw--and into history. Look out for Ken's newest book, A Column of Fire , available now.

Ken Follett

Ken Follett est né à Cardiff, au Pays de Galles. D'abord reporter, il dirige ensuite sa propre maison d'édition. En 1978, il écrit «L'Arme à l'œil», un thriller original qui rencontre immédiatement le succès. Depuis, il se consacre entièrement à l'écriture. Outre les romans d'espionnage comme «Le Réseau Corneille» ou «Le Vol du frelon», Ken Follett a signé des fresques historiques telles que «Les Piliers de la Terre», «La Marque de Windfield», «Le Pays de la liberté» et des romans brûlants d'actualité comme «Le Troisième Jumeau», qui nous plonge au cœur des manœuvres inavouables liées aux découvertes de la génétique. Ses romans sont traduits dans plus de vingt langues, et six d'entre eux ont été portés à l'écran.
