Summary:

Is War A Thing To Be Forgotten? That's what Annie's mother would like to do. She wants to forget the pain and heartache--and to keep it away from Annie, too. But Annie cannot forget the death of her favorite uncle, who was killed in France. She cannot forget Andrew, the angry young veteran she meets at the hospital where her father works. Can Annie find the courage to help Andrew? And will she ever be able to make sense of a war that took so much from so many? Drawn to the Kansas hospital where her father cares for wounded World War One veterans, Annie meets Andrew, a disfigured young soldier. As Annie helps Andrew slowly adjust to his wounds, she also faces devastating truths about war and the complex world of adulthood. ‘A girl on the brink of womanhood comes to terms with the brutal aftereffects of war in an absorbing novel.’ —BL.

Summary:

Situé dans les montagnes Rocheuses, l’Overlook Hotel est tenu pour être l’un des plus beaux lieux du monde. Beauté, confort, luxe, volupté...L’hiver, l’hôtel est fermé, coupé du monde par le froid, la neige, les glaces. Seul l’habite un gardien. Cet hiver-là, c’est Jack Torrance, un alcoolique qui tente d’échapper à l’échec et au désespoir. Il est venu accompagné de sa femme, Wendy, qui espère, grâce à cet isolement, reconstruire son foyer menacé, et de leur enfant, Danny. Mais Danny possède le don de sentir, de voir, de ressusciter les choses et les êtres à jamais disparus. Dans les cent dix chambres vides de l’Overlook, le démon est omniprésent. Cauchemar ou réalité, le corps de cette femme assassinée, ces bruits de fête qui derivent dans les couloirs, cette vie si étrange qui anime l’hôtel ? Stephen King est considéré dans le monde entier comme le maître de la littérature d’épouvante. Shining – dont Docteur Sleep est la suite – demeure son roman le plus célèbre, adapté prodigieusement par Stanley Kubrick, avec Jack Nicholson dans le rôle principal. Traduit de l’anglais (États-Unis) par Joan Bernard.

Summary:

C'est la rencontre de trois personnes que tout aurait dû séparer. Un pasteur excentrique et incroyablement attachant qui a commis des actes impardonnables et tente de se racheter ; un vieux rabbin, drôle et généreux, qui sait qu'il va mourir, et qui, avant, doit accomplir une dernière mission ; un brillant écrivain, rattrapé par son passé. Cette rencontre a changé la vie de ces trois hommes. Et leur histoire va changer la vôtre. Porté par la justesse d'écriture et d'émotion que l'on connaît à Mitch Albom, Le vieil homme qui m â appris la vie est une réflexion sur la vie, la foi, la sagesse. C'est un message d'espoir et de tolérance qui fait du bien et nous rappelle que le bonheur est à la portée de tous.

Summary:

Dans la belle Vérone, où nous plaçons notre scène, l'antique haine de deux maisons égales en dignité vient d'éclater par de nouveaux troubles, où le sang des citoyens a souillé les mains des citoyens. De la race funeste de ces deux ennemis a pris naissance, sous des étoiles funestes, un couple d'amants infortunés dont les malheurs et la ruine déplorable enseveliront avec eux les luttes de leurs parents. L'épisode terrible de cet amour marqué de mort, l'obstination de leurs parents dans des fureurs dont la mort de leurs enfants peut seule terminer le cours, vont pendant ces deux heures occuper notre scène. Si vous nous prêtez la faveur d'une oreille attentive, nous travaillerons par nos efforts à perfectionner ce qui pourrait manquer ici.

Summary:

From the bestselling social commentator and cultural historian comes Barbara Ehrenreich's fascinating exploration of one of humanity's oldest traditions: the celebration of communal joy In the acclaimed Blood Rites, Barbara Ehrenreich delved into the origins of our species' attraction to war. Here, she explores the opposite impulse, one that has been so effectively suppressed that we lack even a term for it: the desire for collective joy, historically expressed in ecstatic revels of feasting, costuming, and dancing. Ehrenreich uncovers the origins of communal celebration in human biology and culture. Although sixteenth-century Europeans viewed mass festivities as foreign and "savage," Ehrenreich shows that they were indigenous to the West, from the ancient Greeks' worship of Dionysus to the medieval practice of Christianity as a "danced religion." Ultimately, church officials drove the festivities into the streets, the prelude to widespread reformation: Protestants criminalized carnival, Wahhabist Muslims battled ecstatic Sufism, European colonizers wiped out native dance rites. The elites' fear that such gatherings would undermine social hierarchies was justified: the festive tradition inspired French revolutionary crowds and uprisings from the Caribbean to the American plains. Yet outbreaks of group revelry persist, as Ehrenreich shows, pointing to the 1960s rock-and-roll rebellion and the more recent "carnivalization" of sports. Original, exhilarating, and deeply optimistic, Dancing in the Streets concludes that we are innately social beings, impelled to share our joy and therefore able to envision, even create, a more peaceable future. "Fascinating . . . An admirably lucid, level-headed history of outbreaks of joy from Dionysus to the Grateful Dead."—Terry Eagleton, The Nation

Summary:

Steven Church grew up in the 1970s and ’80s in Lawrence, Kansas, a town whose predictable daily rhythms give way easily to anxiety—and a place that, since Civil War times, has been a canvas for sporadic scenes of havoc and violence in the popular imagination. Childhood was quiet on the surface, but Steven grew up scared—scared of killer tornadoes, winged monkeys, violent movies, authority figures, the dissolution of his parents’ marriage, and most of all in Reagan’s America, nuclear war. His fantasies of nuclear meltdown, genetic mutation, and post-apocalyptic survival find a focal point in 1982 when filming begins in Lawrence for The Day After, a film which would go on to become the second-highest Nielsen-rated TV movie. Despite cheesy special effects, melodramatic plotlines, and the presence of Steve Guttenberg, the movie had an instant and lasting impact on Church, and an entire generation. Combining interview, personal essay, film criticism, fact, and flights of imagination, Church’s richly layered and darkly comic memoir explores the meaning of Cold War fears for his generation and their resonance today.
