Lisa BlumenAstra Nova
After extensive training, Nova is about to embark on a scientific mission with no way of returning. Confined in a state-of-the-art rocket, the young astronaut will have to reach the planet L31, located 2.5 million light years from Earth. The journey will take between 20 and 50 years.
Before the big departure, she must comply with a final formality required by the space agency. She must attend the farewell party organised in her honour in a sumptuous villa. The woman who has always preferred a reclusive life will have to face her only three friends, whom she has not seen for a long time. The years have passed and Ulysses, Yseult and Alan have changed.
With ASTRA NOVA, Lisa Blumen returns with a unique science fiction story. For the author of AVANT L’OUBLI, the future world is once again a means of materializing marginal existences. This time they are confronted with the throes of estrangement and individualism. The plot is built up through asides, memories of the past, and the evocation of the shattered and solitary trajectories of the four characters. Produced entirely in felt-tip pens, ASTRA NOVA is a story imbued with a fleeting nostalgia, like the sudden appearance of a shooting star in the night.
