About

'I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep. My name is Kvothe. You may have heard of me' So begins the tale of Kvothe - currently known as Kote, the unassuming innkeepter - from his childhood in a troupe of traveling players, through his years spent as a near-feral orphan in a crime-riddled city, to his daringly brazen yet successful bid to enter a difficult and dangerous school of magic. In these pages you will come to know Kvothe the notorious magician, the accomplished thief, the masterful musician, the dragon-slayer, the legend-hunter, the lover, the thief and the infamous assassin. The Name of the Wind is fantasy at its very best, and an astounding must-read title.

Patrick Rothfuss vit dans le Wisconsin, où il enseigne à l'université. À ses heures perdues, il tient une chronique satirique dans un hebdomadaire, pratique la désobéissance civile et tâte de l'alchimie. Il aime les mots, rit souvent et refuse de danser. Le Nom du Vent est son premier roman : « Aussi captivant à la deuxième lecture qu'à la première, c'est typiquement le premier roman riche et parfaitement maîtrisé que la plupart des écrivains rêvent tout juste de produire. Le monde de la Fantasy a une nouvelle star. » (Publishers Weekly)
