2050, Paris n'est plus qu'un torrent de violences, le terrain de jeu de fanatiques déchus. L'air n'est plus respirable. Les hologrammes ont remplacé les hommes. Le travail n'est plus que le privilège de quelques-uns. Sous l'hégémonie de Dame Consommation, il est devenu interdit de fabriquer et réparer.
Ce livre est un signal d'alerte. Il est futuriste sans être fantaisiste. Un livre terrifiant de vérités aux premières pages et saisissant d'espoir aux dernières. Un très beau roman d'anticipation, empli d'humanité. Un bel appel au vivre ensemble et au retour à l'autosuffisance.
Hugh Johnson is the world's favourite writer on wine, thanks to his rare talent for bringing to life such a complicated subject.
Hugh Johnson's Pocket Wine Book was first published in 1977 and now sells over 400,000 copies a year. In all, over six million copies have been sold around the world, more than any other wine book in history. In this special edition for the year 2001, Hugh Johnson offers us unique personal insights into his favourite wines, famous and obscure, appraises vintages old and new and predicts which wines to watch in the new millennium.
With the publication of his first book, Wine, Hugh established himself at the age of 27 as the most refreshing and authoritative voice on the subject. More than 30 years later, his reputation as the pre-eminent wine writer in the world continues to be unchallenged. During the past three decades he has repeatedly written books that have become landmarks in the subject, including his classic World Atlas of Wine, now in its fourth edition, his Wine Companion and the Story of Wine.
