About this title

Synopsis:

Kingsli Emis (1922-1995) - znamenityj anglijskij pisatel', otets ne menee znamenitogo Martina Emisa. V nachale svoej kar'ery assotsiirovalsya s dvizheniem "rasserzhennykh molodykh lyudej" i pital levye ubezhdeniya, odnako s vozrastom popravel i dazhe byl udostoen rytsarskogo titula. Proslavilsya satiricheskim romanom "Schastlivchik Dzhim" (1954) o nravakh akademicheskoj sredy. V 1960 godu vypustil odnu iz pervykh v sovremennom populyarnom literaturovedenii rabot, posvyaschennykh fantastike, - "Novye karty ada", i sposobstvoval tomu, chtoby k etomu zhanru nachali otnosit'sya kak k dostatochno ser'eznomu, a ne chisto razvlekatel'nomu. Iz ego pozdnikh romanov naibol'shim uspekhom kak u kritikov, tak i u chitatelej pol'zovalis' al'ternativno-istoricheskaya "Peremena" (1976) i udostoennye bukerovskoj premii "Starye cherti" (1986). Glavnym geroem "Lesovika", ekranizirovannogo na Bi-bi-si v 1990 godu (prichem soavtorom stsenariya, naryadu s Emisom, vystupil ne menee mastityj literator Malkol'm Bredberi), yavlyaetsya khozyain odnoimennogo traktira, ne durak vypit' i ne chuzhdyj prochikh zhiznennykh radostej, kotoromu nachinayut mereschit'sya prizraki. Vprochem, mereschit'sya li? I tak li uzh mertv zlobnyj doktor Anderkhill, po legende vyzyvavshij Lesovika v XVII veke, daby tvorit' nesusvetnye beschinstva?
