"Terrifying... Eloquent... A heart-rending drama of human yearning." --New York Times In April 1992 a young man from a well-to-do family hitchhiked to Alaska and walked alone into the wilderness north of Mt. McKinley. He had given $25,000 in savings to charity, abandoned his car and most of his possessions, burned all the cash in his wallet, and invented a new life for himself. Four months later, his decomposed body was found by a moose hunter. How Christopher Johnson McCandless came to die is the unforgettable story of Into the Wild. Immediately after graduating from college in 1991, McCandless had roamed through the West and Southwest on a vision quest like those made by his heroes Jack London and John Muir. In the Mojave Desert he abandoned his car, stripped it of its license plates, and burned all of his cash. He would give himself a new name, Alexander Supertramp, and, unencumbered by money and belongings, he would be free to wallow in the raw, unfiltered experiences that nature presented. Craving a blank spot on the map, McCandless simply threw the maps away. Leaving behind his desperate parents and sister, he vanished into the wild. Jon Krakauer constructs a clarifying prism through which he reassembles the disquieting facts of McCandless's short life. Admitting an interst that borders on obsession, he searches for the clues to the dries and desires that propelled McCandless. Digging deeply, he takes an inherently compelling mystery and unravels the larger riddles it holds: the profound pull of the American wilderness on our imagination; the allure of high-risk activities to young men of a certain cast of mind; the complex, charged bond between fathers and sons. When McCandless's innocent mistakes turn out to be irreversible and fatal, he becomes the stuff of tabloid headlines and is dismissed for his naiveté, pretensions, and hubris. He is said to have had a death wish but wanting to die is a very different thing from being compelled to look over the edge. Krakauer brings McCandless's uncompromising pilgrimage out of the shadows, and the peril, adversity, and renunciation sought by this enigmatic young man are illuminated with a rare understanding--and not an ounce of sentimentality. Mesmerizing, heartbreaking, Into the Wild is a tour de force. The power and luminosity of Jon Krakauer's stoytelling blaze through every page.

Comment penser nos maux actuels de civilisation, atteintes narcissiques, souffrance de la jeunesse et du féminin, montée de la haine primaire et d'une épidémie des « isme s» : populismes, islamismes? Cet essai l'envisage suivant deux axes psychanalytiques la pensée de Melanie Klein et celle de Lacan. La théorie kleinienne permet une relecture du passé. La voie indiquée par Lacan permet un croisement entre pensée freudienne et pensée confucéenne, ce que développe le livre. Il s'agit d'ouvrir à l'antique sagesse chinoise, d'y chercher des passerelles pour élargir la conscience de l'humain et de gagner sur les forces destructrices à l'oeuvre.

La France a échappé au terrorisme qu’ont connu l’Allemagne et l’Italie; de peu: les «maos», comme ils se désignaient eux-mêmes, prônaient dans notre pays l’affrontement violent avec le pouvoir et la police, les cadres des usines, les militants du parti communiste. C’est cette radicalité que l’on découvre dans ce récit autobiographique d’une ancienne de la Gauche prolétarienne que dirigeait Benny Lévy, un jeune et brillant philosophe dont le fanatisme ne se démentira jamais, avec aussi Olivier Rolin, Alain Geismar et bien d’autres. Voyage initiatique en Chine, Mai 68, activisme politique à Grenoble, séjours en prison, clandestinité, établissement en usine à Grenoble et à Sochaux, procès internes, Claire Brière-Blanchet a suivi ce chemin extrême jusqu’en 1973. La révolution ne lui a pas pris seulement sa jeunesse, mais aussi sa petite fille Judith. Ce drame scella l’échec de ces années d’ascétisme militant. Claire mettra des années à se reconstruire, et à pouvoir enfin raconter sa saisissante et terrifiante épopée. Étudiante en histoire à la Sorbonne, Claire Brière entre en extrême gauche en 1960 avec la guerre d’Algérie. Gauchiste, puis maoïste, elle passe quinze ans au service exclusif de ce qu’elle croit être la révolution, avec son mari Pierre Blanchet, qui sera tué en reportage en Croatie en 1991. En 1975, elle devient reporter à Libérationet publie des ouvrages sur l’Iran, puis le Liban, l’Égypte et l’Irak. De 1988 à 2007, elle est en charge des publications de «Médecins du Monde» et crée la revue Ingérences.

The gripping articles in Classic Krakauer, originally published in periodicals such as The New Yorker, Outside, and Smithsonian, display the singular investigative reporting that made Jon Krakauer famous—and show why he is considered a standard-bearer of modern journalism. Spanning an extraordinary range of subjects and locations, these articles take us from a horrifying avalanche on Mt. Everest to a volcano poised to obliterate a big chunk of greater Seattle at any moment; from a wilderness teen-therapy program run by apparent sadists to an otherwordly cave in New Mexico, studied by NASA to better understand Mars; from the notebook of one Fred Beckey, who catalogued the greatest unclimbed mountaineering routes on the planet, to the last days of legendary surfer Mark Foo. Rigorously researched and vividly written, marked by an unerring instinct for storytelling and scoop, the pieces in Classic Krakauer are unified by the author’s ambivalent love affair with unruly landscapes and his relentless search for truth.

562 écrivains tombés au champ d'honneur lors de la Grande Guerre ont eu en 1927 la reconnaissance nationale par l'apposition d'une plaque au Panthéon. 130 ont reçu la Légion d'honneur, la Croix de guerre et la mention "Mort pour la France". Mais pour la plupart, ils restent injustement oubliés, méconnus voire inconnus. L'auteur, par un minutieux travail de recherche bibliographique, se propose de les remettre en lumière, eu égard à la valeur de leur engagement au combat et à la richesse et la variété de leur production littéraire.

Repérer, prévenir, prendre en charge, voici les objectifs de cet ouvrage qui présente pour la première fois une synthèse de la question sous l'aspect psychopathologique.

"Chez le Boulinier du boulevard Jourdan (Paris, 14e arrondissement), j’ai trouvé en solde un vieux guide Leguèbe des films (Omnibus, 2000). Il y a 22 000 films dedans. L’ancienne propriétaire du livre – une certaine Marité, son prénom étant inscrit sur la page de garde – en avait coché un quart d’entre eux, sans doute ceux qu’elle avait vus. Je me suis rendu compte qu’on avait vu en gros les mêmes. Elle doit avoir mon âge ou un peu plus, car dans son choix il y a pas mal de films américains des années 1940 ou 1950 que j’étais trop jeune pour connaître. Peut-être est-elle décédée. Quand quelqu’un meurt, les héritiers se débarrassent en premier de ses livres. Cette Marité et moi, on avait donc dans la tête les mêmes visages, les mêmes paysages, les mêmes histoires découvertes au cinéma. Cela fait de nous, en quelque sorte, des parents. Comme le sont par exemple tous les chrétiens. Le cinéma n’est-il pas une messe ? Il y a des séances tous les jours et toutes les heures, dans les églises des Champs-Élysées et du Quartier latin. Le cinéma est aussi, après le roman, le second miroir que l’on promène le long du chemin de Stendhal, dont les livres ont fait d’excellents films qu’il n’a pas vus. Premières séances rassemble 438 critiques de films qui, avec leur idéologie en bandoulière, m’ont montré le monde de 2000 à 2009. "P. B.

« Jusqu’au bout de la foi est, en toute logique, la suite de Crépuscule sur l’Islam. L’avenir est contenu dans le passé, et la douleur du second livre est contenue dans le premier. Il m’apparut que je n’avais pas pris assez de distance avec le matériau à l’origine de ce premier livre, que je l’avais par trop tenu pour acquis. Il m’apparut qu’il y avait là matière à s’interroger, comme ce dut sans doute être le cas dans le monde classique à l’époque où celui-ci fut supplanté par ce phénomène inconnu qu’était alors le christianisme. De nombreux ouvrages avaient été écrits sur cette transition, et ce dont j’étais témoin, me semblait-il, méritait plus ample réflexion. Au lieu de le tenir pour un fait acquis, il me fallait considérer l’effet que pouvait avoir sur les individus la mise à mal ou le renversement de leur culture. Ainsi ce livre a-t-il pour thème l’histoire d’individus pris dans la déferlante de changements historiques. » V.S. Naipaul

A classic of Canadian literature by the great Quebecoise writer, Kamouraska is based on a real nineteenth-century love-triangle in rural Quebec. It paints a poetic and terrifying tableau of the life of Elisabeth d'Aulnieres: her marriage to Antoine Tassy, squire of Kamouraska; his violent murder; and her passion for George Nelson, an American doctor. Passionate and evocative, Kamouraska is the timeless story of one woman's destructive commitment to an ideal love. Translated into seven languages, Kamouraska won the Paris book prize and was made into a landmark feature film by Claude Jutra. This edition features a brilliant new introduction by Noah Richler.

This extraordinary work of investigative journalism takes readers inside America’s isolated Mormon Fundamentalist communities, where some 40,000 people still practice polygamy. Defying both civil authorities and the Mormon establishment in Salt Lake City, the renegade leaders of these Taliban-like theocracies are zealots who answer only to God. At the core of Krakauer’s book are brothers Ron and Dan Lafferty, who insist they received a commandment from God to kill a blameless woman and her baby girl. Beginning with a meticulously researched account of this appalling double murder, Krakauer constructs a multi-layered, bone-chilling narrative of messianic delusion, polygamy, savage violence, and unyielding faith. Along the way he uncovers a shadowy offshoot of America’s fastest growing religion, and raises provocative questions about the nature of religious belief.

• Winner of the Strand Critics Award for Best First Novel • Nominated for the Barry and Macavity Awards for Best First Novel • Longlisted for the CWA John Creasy (New Blood) Dagger Award “Quick-witted and fast-paced, this debut mystery should be a hit with Gone Girl fans.” —People magazine "This is an all-nighter . . . The best debut mystery I've read in a long time."—Tana French “A really gutsy, clever, energetic read, often unexpected, always entertaining. I loved Janie Jenkins’s sassy voice and Elizabeth Little’s too. In the world of crime novels, Dear Daughter is a breath of fresh air.” —Kate Atkinson, New York Times bestselling author of Life After Life A sensational debut thriller featuring an unforgettable heroine who just might have murdered her mother Former “It Girl” Janie Jenkins is sly, stunning, and fresh out of prison. Ten years ago, at the height of her fame, she was incarcerated for the murder of her mother, a high-society beauty known for her good works and rich husbands. Now, released on a technicality, Janie makes herself over and goes undercover, determined to chase down the one lead she has on her mother’s killer. The only problem? Janie doesn’t know if she’s the killer she’s looking for. Janie makes her way to an isolated South Dakota town whose mysteries rival her own. Enlisting the help of some new friends (and the town’s wary police chief), Janie follows a series of clues—an old photograph, an abandoned house, a forgotten diary—and begins to piece together her mother’s seemingly improbable connection to the town. When new evidence from Janie’s own past surfaces, she’s forced to consider the possibility that she and her mother were more alike than either of them would ever have imagined. As she digs tantalizingly deeper, and as suspicious locals begin to see through her increasingly fragile facade, Janie discovers that even the sleepiest towns hide sinister secrets—and will stop at nothing to guard them. On the run from the press, the police, and maybe even a murderer, Janie must choose between the anonymity she craves and the truth she so desperately needs. A gripping, electrifying debut novel with an ingenious and like-it-or-not sexy protagonist, Dear Daughter follows every twist and turn as Janie unravels the mystery of what happened the night her mother died—whatever the cost.

Un voyage intérieur pour se retrouver avec soi-même grâce à l'écriture Désorientée, égarée dans une société où elle n’a plus aucun repère, une jeune femme remet pour la première fois en cause son appartenance au monde du travail et à notre système de communication. Elle éprouve soudain le désir de tout quitter et de partir vivre durant une année sabbatique dans un hameau déserté. Elle espère reconquérir, grâce à l’écriture, sa personnalité en train de se déchirer sous l’effet de signaux et d’appels aussi impératifs que contradictoires. L’isolement, puis la vie simple du village et le contact de la nature l’y aideront peut-être. C’est de toute façon un voyage au bout duquel elle se doit d’aller, car elle a une mission : se retrouver. Que peut-on bien faire hors des impératifs de la vitesse, du chaos de bruits, de mouvements, de couleurs et d’odeurs qui, chaque jour, stimulent et/ou excitent les sens, qui donnent à l’existence, par leur effervescence, sa raison d’être ? Comment peut-on se sentir vivre sans les séductions multiples et toujours renouvelées de la consommation, sans la présence et surtout sans le regard des autres ? Pour quelle raison certains ressentent-ils, à l’heure, actuelle, le besoin presque vital de s’isoler ? Et que peut-il bien se passer lorsque l’on s’évade dans « un endroit écarté » afin de se mettre à l’école de la solitude et de laisser faire les choses... pour une fois ? En proposant de s'isoler de l'agitation du monde pour tenter de répondre à ses propres questions identitaires, Danièle Henky nous emmène dans une quête initiatique, sur le chemin de la réflexion et de la spiritualité. A PROPOS DE L'AUTEUR Danièle Henky est maître de conférences en langues et littératures française à l'université de Strasbourg et membre du groupe de recherches "Configurations littéraires". Parallèlement, Danièle Henky est spécialiste de la littérature jeunesse des XXe et XXIe siècles et fait partie du groupe de recherches "Voir autrement en littérature d'enfance" à l'université de Laval (Québec). Elle a rédigé de nombreux ouvrages scientifiques sur le sujet. EXTRAIT Par le passé, on appelait « solitude » une demeure « où l’on vit retiré du commerce des hommes ». À la fin du Misanthrope de Molière, Alceste, déçu par la société de son temps et surtout par Célimène, sa bien-aimée, qui lui préfère le monde hypocrite et léger des courtisans, décide de « fuir tous les humains » et de s’en aller vivre dans ce qu’il appelle « son désert ». Pour les gens du XVIIe siècle, se retirer à la campagne dans la solitude, fût-elle celle d’un château, c’est un enterrement. On peut se demander si aujourd’hui les citadins n’envisagent pas de façon aussi négative le désir que certains d’entre nous éprouvent soudain de tout quitter pour se retrouver à l’écart. Un départ, même momentané, à l’occasion de vacances par exemple, vers un lieu isolé, calme, silencieux, privé des attraits d’un complexe touristique, loin de l’agitation perpétuelle des rues, des magasins, des bureaux et des ceintures de routes, de voies médiatiques et numériques qui entourent désormais les villes, est perçu comme une désertion par ceux qui restent.

This volume investigates outstanding figures and configurations of literary and cultural multilingualism on a transcontinental and on a global scale. Its first focus is on the both subcontinental and transcontinental Indies, on the oxymoronic figure of East West India and on the stirring 'relations through words' in Luso-Afro-Indian, Anglo-Indian, and Indo-European areas. The second focus is on the cross-cultural configuration of East and West shaped by some striking Sino-European and Sino-American events in early modern and modern times. A third issue concerns the glocal and globoglot 'people of paper' in a contemporary Californian town, and, lastly, the all-embracing, all-devouring ouroboros and other multi-lingual ophidians.

Douglas Coupland's gloriously filthy, side-splittingly funny and unforgettable new novel, his first full-length work of fiction in four years. Worst. Person. Ever. is a deeply unworthy book about a dreadful human being with absolutely no redeeming social value. Raymond Gunt, in the words of the author, "is a living, walking, talking, hot steaming pile of pure id." He's a B-unit cameraman who enters an amusing downward failure spiral that takes him from London to Los Angeles and then on to an obscure island in the Pacific where a major American TV network is shooting a Survivor-style reality show. Along the way, Gunt suffers multiple comas and unjust imprisonment, is forced to reenact the "Angry Dance" from the movie Billy Elliot and finds himself at the centre of a nuclear war. We also meet Raymond's upwardly failing sidekick, Neal, as well as Raymond's ex-wife, Fiona, herself "an atomic bomb of pain." Even though he really puts the "anti" in anti-hero, you may find Raymond Gunt an oddly likeable character.

The Count of Monte Cristo (French: Le Comte de Monte-Cristo) is an adventure novel by French author Alexandre Dumas (père). It is one of the author's most popular works, along with The Three Musketeers. Dumas completed the work in 1844. The story takes place in France, Italy, islands in the Mediterranean, and in the Levant during the historical events of 1815–1838. It is an adventure story primarily concerned with themes of hope, justice, vengeance, mercy and forgiveness, it focuses on a man who is wrongfully imprisoned, escapes from jail, acquires a fortune and sets about getting revenge on those responsible for his imprisonment. However, his plans have devastating consequences for the innocent as well as the guilty. The book is considered a literary classic today. According to Luc Sante, "The Count of Monte Cristo has become a fixture of Western civilization's literature, as inescapable and immediately identifiable as Mickey Mouse, Noah's flood, and the story of Little Red Riding Hood." This English translation was originally published in 1846 by Chapman and Hall, London.

A novel of love and betrayal set during a cholera epidemic from the acclaimed British author of Of Human Bondage, “a great artist, a genius” (Theodore Dreiser). “[Theodore Dreiser] is the modern writer who has influenced me the most.” —George Orwell Arriving in Hong Kong in the 1920s, newlywed Kitty Fane soon learns that being the wife of a British government bacteriologist gives her no particular social status. It only adds to her dissatisfaction with her life and her husband, Walter. Her marriage has been nothing but a mistake. But she soon embarks on an affair that transforms her very being. There is passion. There is hope. There is a future full of possibility. When Walter must go deep into mainland China to help treat the victims of a cholera epidemic, Kitty refuses to accompany him. To force her hand, Walter threatens to expose her affair. But Kitty, sure in her lover’s whispered promises, pushes for a divorce. Her impulsive decision will throw a stark light on the truth and her own desperate illusions, thrusting Kitty into unfamiliar territory—both in the world around her and the soul within . . . The inspiration for the film starring Naomi Watts and Edward Norton, “The Painted Veil with its sadness, its moral tension, its irony and compassion, its building evocations of lust and terror and remorse is a work of art” (The Spectator). “Reveals many of Maugham’s strengths: an understanding of women, meticulous craftsmanship and raw emotion.” —Daily Mail “This short masterpiece tells of love, treachery, and a search for real substance in life.” —DigBooks

Né en 1899 dans une ville de Hongrie aujourd’hui roumaine, photographe mais aussi peintre, dessinateur, sculpteur et écrivain, Brassaï fut un artiste éclectique et de son temps. Etudiant en histoire de l’art à Budapest puis à Berlin, il s’installe à Paris au milieu des années 1920, apprend seul le français en lisant Proust, et passe des nuits entières à arpenter la capitale. Il photographie les rues, les gens, les bordels comme les chantiers, sublime les enseignes publicitaires et capture les lumières. Ami des plus grands artistes de son temps, Kandinsky, Kokoschka, Henry Miller ou Jacques Prévert, il fut aussi le portraitiste de Dali, Picasso, Matisse, Giacometti et Michaux. Alors que la photo peine à être reconnue comme un art, il réalise des clichés qui resteront à jamais les témoins d’une époque mythique : celle du Montparnasse des années 30, de la Bohème étourdissante. Photographe d’un Paris interlope et nocturne comme de la brillante société de la danse et de l’opéra, auteur d’une œuvre aujourd’hui célèbre dans le monde entier, du Japon aux Etats-Unis, Brassaï est entré dans la légende en se promenant. « La vie de Brassaï fut une quête inlassable et tenace. Du petit soldat communiste à l’exilé hongrois des brasseries de Montparnasse, puis à l’artiste mondialement reconnu, c’est Ulysse. Mais c’est aussi Protée, un flâneur, un grimpeur, un insaisissable vagabond qui fut le poète de sa propre vie. On ne vient pas à bout des légendes. C’est ce qui fait leur étrange beauté. » Serge Sanchez

Now available in eBook for the first time, Dalva is one of the finest novels by New York Times bestselling, much beloved author Jim Harrison: a beautifully crafted story of one woman’s journey to find her son. From her home on the California coast, Dalva hears the broad silence of the Nebraska prairie where she was born and longs for the son she gave up for adoption years before. Beautiful, fearless, tormented, at forty-five she has lived a life of lovers and adventures. Now, Dalva begins a journey that will take her back to the bosom of her family, to the half-Sioux lover of her youth, and to a pioneering great-grandfather whose journals recount the bloody annihilation of the Plains Indians. On the way, she discovers a story that stretches from East to West, from the Civil War to Wounded Knee and Vietnam—and finds the balm to heal her wild and wounded soul. One of Harrison’s most ambitious novels, Dalva explores an extraordinary family through the strong, engaging voice of an unforgettable woman, confirming Harrison as one of America’s most memorable writers.

A WORD WRITTEN ON A WHITE PAGE Christmas Day in the year 182- was somewhat remarkable in the island of Guernsey. Snow fell on that day. In the Channel Islands a frosty winter is uncommon, and a fall of snow is an event. On that Christmas morning, the road which skirts the seashore from St. Peter's Port to the Vale was clothed in white. From midnight till the break of day the snow had been falling. Towards nine o'clock, a little after the rising of the wintry sun, as it was too early yet for the Church of England folks to go to St. Sampson's, or for the Wesleyans to repair to Eldad Chapel, the road was almost deserted. Throughout that portion of the highway which separates the first from the second tower, only three foot-passengers could be seen. These were a child, a man, and a woman. Walking at a distance from each other, these wayfarers had no visible connection. The child, a boy of about eight years old, had stopped, and was looking curiously at the wintry scene. The man walked behind the woman, at a distance of about a hundred paces. Like her he was coming from the direction of the church of St. Sampson. The appearance of the man, who was still young, was something between that of a workman and a sailor. He wore his working-day clothes—a kind of Guernsey shirt of coarse brown stuff, and trousers partly concealed by tarpaulin leggings—a costume which seemed to indicate that, notwithstanding the holy day, he was going to no place of worship. His heavy shoes of rough leather, with their soles covered with large nails, left upon the snow, as he walked, a print more like that of a prison lock than the foot of a man. The woman, on the contrary, was evidently dressed for church. She wore a large mantle of black silk, wadded, under which she had coquettishly adjusted a dress of Irish poplin, trimmed alternately with white and pink; but for her red stockings, she might have been taken for a Parisian. She walked on with a light and free step, so little suggestive of the burden of life that it might easily be seen that she was young. Her movements possessed that subtle grace which indicates the most delicate of all transitions—that soft intermingling, as it were, of two twilights—the passage from the condition of a child to that of womanhood. The man seemed to take no heed of her.
