Summary:

She thought he was offering her a chance of escape. She was wrong. Richard Laymon's Among the Missing is a riveting horror novel, full of shocking revelations, twists and turns. Perfect for fans of Stephen King and Clive Barker. 'Among the Missing is strikingly different. From the chilling opening...we are plunged into a disturbing world of twisted psychopathology' - The Times At 2:32 in the morning a Jaguar roars along a lonely road high in the Californian mountains. Behind the wheel sits a beautiful woman wearing only a skimpy, revealing nightgown. She's left her husband behind. She's after a different kind of man - someone as wild, daring and passionate as herself. The man she wants is waiting for her... with wild plans of his own. The man waits patiently in the woods. When the woman stops to pick him up, he suggests they go to the Bend, where the river widens and there's a soft sandy beach. With the stars overhead and moonlight on the water, it's an ideal place for love. But there will be no love tonight. In the morning a naked body will be found at the Bend - a body missing more than its clothes. And the man will be waiting for someone else... What readers are saying about Among the Missing: 'Throw in some dark humour and Laymon's assortment of oddball characters and the book delivers a nice chunk of escapism for a few hours, with some surprising plot twists' 'Without a doubt one of the most gripping stories he has ever written. A classic story of murder, mayhem, decapitation and double-edged twists [that run] the whole way through' 'The suspense lurks beneath the surface until the final Hollywood-style ending'

Summary:

An accident can end a life. The same accident can begin one. Three lives collide in the wake of an unforeseeable tragedy. When a bridge collapses in the Highlands of Scotland, dozens of commuters vanish into the freezing river below, swept by the currents toward the sea, and only an amateur video and the bridge’s security camera record their last moments. A woman tourist, whose car was filmed pulling onto the bridge seconds before it fell, is assumed to be among the missing. But in desperate need of money, she had sold the car only hours before. Now she can begin life over. Her path leads her to a spartan cabin on the bank of the river where, as Annabel, she is reborn, free from her past. Here she lives with Silva, an illegal immigrant whose predicament is compounded by the disappearance of her husband and their child. She waits for them each day, clinging to hope against overwhelming evidence. The two women are befriended by the boatman Ron, and together they create a fragile sanctuary in the shadow of the bridge that has changed their lives. They keep secrets from one another, yet also connect in ways none of them expects. Lost souls all, they struggle to survive, to trust, and to love even as the consequences of the past prove inescapable. A masterly novel about the invisible ties that bind us to our identities, to our histories, and to one another, Among the Missing soars with the peerless voice of the author described by P. D. James as an “exciting talent.” Morag Joss, with the psychological penetration and the finely wrought prose that are her hallmarks, spins a brilliant tale of damage and reparation, suspicion and salvation.

« Ce livre est un joyau et son auteur, un écrivain immensément prometteur » (Kirkus Reviews). Accueilli avec enthousiasme par la presse, Parmi les disparus, publié en 2001 aux États-Unis et finaliste du National Book Award, a révélé un nouveau talent. Troublantes, belles et émouvantes, ces nouvelles explorent les fractures qui émaillent nos existences. Qu'il évoque les relations familiales, conjugales ou amicales, Dan Chaon restitue avec une grande sensibilité les sentiments et les pensées, parfois obscurs et contradictoires, que l'on se cache les uns aux autres par peur ou par amour. « L'un de nos meilleurs nouvellistes. Ses histoires sont drôles, déchirantes, brillantes et magnifiquement écrites. » (Lorrie Moore) « Une écriture d'une grande sobriété, une puissance émotionnelle surprenante. Dan Chaon est vraiment le seul écrivain qui mérite d'être comparé à Raymond Carver. » (The Los Angeles Times)

Summary:

Living Among Monsters: Growing Up During the Missing and Murdered Children Ordeal is based on a true story. This book provides details about missing and murdered children in 1970s and 1980s Atlanta, Georgia. It describes what it was like as an African American kid to survive and avoid abduction in order to grow up during those deadly years. During the Jim Crow era the K.K.K. used to rule Georgia with an iron fist. After President Johnson ended the Jim Crow era in 1965, the federal affirmative action law was born. These events and others caused by the A.C.L.U. and the Civil Rights leaders may have woken up the sleeping Klans member, causing them once again act out and used their iron fists to restore the damages that the Civil Rights leaders were destroying.

Summary:

« Nous n'arrêtons pas de nous raconter des histoires sur nous-mêmes. Mais nous ne pouvons maîtriser ces histoires. Les événements de notre vie ont une signification parce que nous choisissons de leur en donner une. » Tel pourrait être le mantra de Dustin Tillman, psychologue dans la banlieue de Cleveland. Ce quadragénaire, marié et père de deux adolescents, mène une vie somme toute banale lorsqu'il apprend que son frère adoptif, Rusty, vient d'être libéré de prison. C'est sur son témoignage que, trente ans plus tôt, celui-ci a été condamné à perpétuité pour le meurtre de leurs parents et de deux proches. Maintenant que des tests ADN innocentent son frère, Dustin s'attend au pire. Au même moment, l'un de ses patients, un policier en congé longue maladie, lui fait part de son obsession pour une étrange affaire : la disparition de plusieurs étudiants des environs retrouvés noyés, y voyant la marque d'un serial killer. Pour échapper à sa vie personnelle, Dustin se laisse peu à peu entraîner dans une enquête périlleuse, au risque de franchir les limites que lui impose son rôle de thérapeute. Plongée dans les ténèbres, celles d'un homme submergé par ses propres contradictions et les failles de sa mémoire, Une douce lueur de malveillance est un livre virtuose et vénéneux. Une écriture glaçante, une inventivité littéraire qui bouscule les structures du roman contemporain : rarement un écrivain aura su explorer le mystère de l'identité avec un réalisme aussi obsédant.

Summary:

Rick ferait n'importe quoi pour sa petite amie. Il est même prêt à passer ses vacances à faire de la randonnée autour de Fern Lake... et pourtant, après ce qui s'est passé la dernière fois, c'est bien le dernier endroit au monde où il a envie d'aller. Mais elle adore le camping sauvage, et avec ses cheveux blonds et ses courbes là où il faut, elle est tout simplement irrésistible dans son short de randonnée. Rick pourrait la suivre jusqu'en enfer... et c'est justement ce qui l'attend. Gillian aussi est en vacances. Seulement, son idée des vacances réussies est un peu étrange. Elle aime s'introduire chez les gens en leur absence et profiter des lieux : regarder leur télé, se prélasser dans leur piscine ou dormir dans leur lit. C'est ainsi que la jeune femme prend son pied. Quel dommage que cette fois-ci elle choisisse la maison d'un tueur... Il y a des jours où l'on regrette vraiment de ne pas être resté chez soi !

Summary:

An enlightening investigation of the Pleistocene’s dual character as a geologic time—and as a cultural idea The Pleistocene is the epoch of geologic time closest to our own. It’s a time of ice ages, global migrations, and mass extinctions—of woolly rhinos, mammoths, giant ground sloths, and not least early species of Homo. It’s the world that created ours. But outside that environmental story there exists a parallel narrative that describes how our ideas about the Pleistocene have emerged. This story explains the place of the Pleistocene in shaping intellectual culture, and the role of a rapidly evolving culture in creating the idea of the Pleistocene and in establishing its dimensions. This second story addresses how the epoch, its Earth-shaping events, and its creatures, both those that survived and those that disappeared, helped kindle new sciences and a new origins story as the sciences split from the humanities as a way of looking at the past. Ultimately, it is the story of how the dominant creature to emerge from the frost-and-fire world of the Pleistocene came to understand its place in the scheme of things. A remarkable synthesis of science and history, The Last Lost World describes the world that made our modern one.

Summary:

Richard Powers embrasse un sujet aussi vaste que l'univers : celui de la nature et de nos liens avec elle. Après des années passées seule dans la forêt à étudier les arbres, la botaniste Pat Westerford en revient avec une découverte sur ce qui est peut-être le premier et le dernier mystère du monde : la communication entre les arbres. Autour de Pat s'entrelacent les destins de neuf personnes qui peu à peu vont converger vers la Californie, où un séquoia est menacé de destruction. Au fil d'un récit aux dimensions symphoniques, Richard Powers explore ici le drame écologique et notre égarement dans le monde virtuel. Son écriture généreuse nous rappelle que, hors la nature, notre culture n'est que " ruine de l'âme ". " Si Powers était un auteur américain du 19e siècle, qui serait-il ? Il serait probablement Herman Melville, et il écrirait Moby Dick. " Margaret Atwood
