Summary:

Erik Larson raconte avec virtuosité la tragédie du Lusitania, un épisode crucial et trouble de la Première Guerre mondiale. 1er mai 1915. Tandis que la Première Guerre mondiale entame son dixième mois, le Lusitania, luxueux paquebot britannique, quitte New York pour rejoindre Liverpool. Près de 2 000 passagers profitent des équipements modernes de ce navire puissant et rapide surnommé " le lévrier des mers ". L'Allemagne a classé en zones de guerre les mers entourant l'Angleterre mais le capitaine, William Thomas Turner, connait les règles interdisant les attaques de bateaux civils. Dans le périmètre du paquebot, à bord du sous-marin allemand U-20, le Kapitänleutnant Walther Schwieger décide néanmoins de passer outre ces règles. Le 7 mai, les deux vaisseaux progressent vers Liverpool et les pièces du puzzle – notamment l'orgueil, un brouillard fortuit et un secret bien gardé – s'assemblent pour produire l'un des pires désastres de l'histoire. Avec un sens de l'intrigue digne des plus grands thrillers, Erik Larson nous embarque dans l'atmosphère suffocante du sous-marin, éclairant d'une lumière inédite ces faits historiques qui contribuèrent à faire entrer les États-Unis dans la Première Guerre mondiale. Nous vivons l'exaltation, la peur, la panique... La réalité dépasse toujours la fiction.

Summary:

Mai 1915. Sur une île déserte de l'archipel des Scilly, un pêcheur et son fils découvrent une jeune fille blessée et hagarde, à moitié morte de faim et de soif. Elle ne parvient à prononcer qu'un seul mot : Lucy. D'où vient-elle ? Est-elle une sirène, ou plutôt, comme le laisse entendre la rumeur, une espionne au service des Allemands ? De l'autre côté de l'Atlantique, le Lusitania, l'un des plus rapides et splendides paquebots de son temps, quitte le port de New York. À son bord, la jeune Merry, accompagnée de sa mère, s'apprête à rejoindre son père blessé sur le front et hospitalisé en Angleterre... L'histoire du Lusitania, torpillé pendant la Première Guerre mondiale et dont le destin tragique fait écho à celui du Titanic, a inspiré l'auteur de Cheval de guerre et du Royaume de Kensuké. Un grand roman, chargé de souffle et d'émotion, par Michael Morpurgo. Prix sorcières 2016.

Summary:

Despite their hopeful aspirations to wholeness in life and spirit, Thomas McFarland contends, the Romantics were ruins amidst ruins," fragments of human existence in a disintegrating world. Focusing on Wordsworth and Coleridge, Professor McFarland shows how this was true not only for each of these Romantics in particular but also for Romanticism in general. Originally published in 1981. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.

Summary:

Toutes les familles ont leurs secrets. Mais certains sont plus difficiles à porter que d'autres... Célébrée dans le monde entier comme la descendante littéraire de Daphné du Maurier, Rosamund Pilcher et Anita Shreve, Hannah Richell signe un premier roman subtil, très touchant et plein de mystère sur la complexité des liens familiaux, la maternité, la trahison, la perte et le formidable courage qu'il faut pour renaître. Empruntant à Daphné Du Maurier et Kate Morton, un roman plein d'émotion et de charme, un suspense psychologique captivant sur la complexité des relations mère-fille, la trahison et le courage qu'il faut pour pardonner. À vingt-cinq ans, Dora mène la vie rêvée d'une jeune Londonienne : une carrière passionnante dans la pub, un fiancé attentionné, un bébé prévu pour l'hiver. Pourtant, Dora est terrifiée : comment annoncer l'événement à sa mère ? Aura-t-elle la force de renouer des liens brisés depuis tant d'années ? Aussitôt arrivée devant l'imposante demeure de Clifftop, au sud-ouest de l'Angleterre, les souvenirs affluent : les rires de sa sœur Cassie et de leur petit frère Alfie ; le couple parfait que formaient leurs parents. La photo de famille idéale, avant ce jour tragique, seize ans plus tôt... Pour sa famille, pour elle, pour son bébé, Dora veut comprendre : que s'est-il passé cet été-là ? Qu'est devenu Alfie ? Est-elle la seule coupable du drame qui a détruit les siens ? Quels douloureux secrets cache encore Clifftop ? L'espoir serait-il possible...?

Summary:

A father talks (for the first time) to his dying son, unraveling extraordinary tales of sea adventures and spiritual encounters. Is this one-way conversation a mere conduit to these extraordinary tales, or is it the key for entering into the mundane drama of living, loving, parenting, and making lasting commitments, as against the manly heroics of taking risks, seducing the passing mermaid, dancing and boozing the night away, and, above all, being counted among the winners? Whichever way you decide to read this book, you will be taken to task by the author: suffering, wondering, enjoying, cursing and occasionally snickering. In the end, you will have to follow Jason to the end of his journey, and there be given the ultimate choice: of accepting what is, or cursing it.

Summary:

Born from the fear of nuclear annihilation and painstakingly researched for over twenty years, Robert Gleason's End of Days is a thriller unlike any other. Lydia Lozen Magruder—the great-granddaughter of a female Apache war-shaman—has seen visions of the End since childhood. She has constructed a massive ranch-fortress in the American Southwest, stocked with everything necessary to rebuild civilization. Now her visions are coming true. John Stone, once a baseball star and now a famous gonzo journalist, stumbled across a plan to blast humanity back to the stone age. Then he vanished. Lydia's only hope of tracking him down lies with her stubborn, globe-trotting daughter, Kate, Stone's former lover. Kate is about to step right into the plotters' crosshairs. Stone has been captured by a pair of twin Middle Eastern princesses, hell-bent on torturing him until he reveals all he knows. Meanwhile, a Russian general obsessed with nuclear Armageddon has also disappeared...as have eight or more of his Russian subs, armed with nuclear-tipped missiles. The world is armed for self-destruction. Who will survive? At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Summary:

Living in a revolutionary age, Coleridge's poetry was written in a spirit of moral and emotional inquiry into the absolutes of the human condition. He is best known for his visionary poetry ('Kubla Khan') and his ballads ('The Rime of the Ancient Mariner'), but he used and transformed a variety of verse forms, from the sonnet to the conversation poem, on subjects as diverse as nature, love, and politics. This selection calls attention to the range of Coleridge's work, its strong autobiographical content,and its artistic development throughout his career. The old chronological form has been abandoned and the poems are organised according to genre, with each section displaying its own individual development in craft and theme.

Summary:

Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut' - Ernest Hemingway Over a boozy Sunday lunch, flatmates James Adair and Ben Stenning made a promise to row across the ocean. At first they considered the Pacific, then the Atlantic, but once James Cracknell and Ben Fogle completed the high-profile Atlantic Rowing Race, their thoughts turned to the Indian Ocean, longer and tougher than the Atlantic and having seen fewer people row across its waters than have walked on the Moon. After years of planning and fund raising, they were ready to launch in Spring 2011. Neither James nor Ben had any rowing or sailing experience. To add to this, James had contracted Guillain-Barre syndrome at the age of 14, which had locked his body into total paralysis for three months (while his mind had remained completely active) and which had left him with paralysed feet. This was a challenge that neither man should have ever considered.

Summary:

An “ingenious, gripping, thoughtful’ novel of island adventure and psychological depth by the acclaimed author of The Sea Road (Boyd Tonkin, Independent, UK). After fraudulently winning a writing competition, Sidony Redruth is sent by her editor to write the first-ever travel book on Hy Brasil, a near-mythical island somewhere in the Atlantic whose very existence has been a matter of debate as late as the nineteenth century. Inspired by islands real and imagined—from the Hebrides to Atlantis—Elphinstone’s plot takes Hy Brasil as its starting point, throws in some old-fashioned piracy, a lost treasure, modern-day drug smuggling, political intrigue, an active volcano and a tragic love affair. Told through Sidony’s notes for her book, Hy Brasil has all the elements of an adult adventure story, but it is also a contemporary thriller with literary influences ranging from The Tempest and Treasure Island to Moby-Dick. “Every other page, it seems, is gilded with erudite detail, bringing the saga templates to life...It’s a refreshing delight to read a novel of such extremely high caliber which interweaves mythical, magical and historical...Elphinstone is a worthy successor to writers like Linklater and Mackay Brown, developing their themes in the new century with a voice which is distinctly her own.”—The Herald, UK
