Summary:

In a world dedicated to pleasure, one young rebel sets out on a forbidden quest. Published for the first time in a single volume, Tanith Lee's duet of novels set in a hedonistic Utopia are as riveting and revolutionary as they were when they first appeared two decades ago. It's a perfect existence, a world in which no pleasure is off-limits, no risk is too dangerous, and no responsibilities can cramp your style. Not if you're Jang: a caste of libertine teenagers in the city of Four BEE. But when you're expected to make trouble—when you can kill yourself on a whim and return in another body, when you're encouraged to change genders at will and experience whatever you desire—you've got no reason to rebel . . . until making love and raising hell, daring death and running wild just leave you cold and empty. Ravenous for true adventures of the mind and body, desperate to find some meaning, one restless spirit finally bucks the system—and by shattering the rules, strikes at the very heart of a soulless society. . . .

Summary:

The girl’s hair was white below the scarf, now a scarf of snow, and there was a fine rime of ice on her eyebrows. Her mouth was so numb she couldn’t have spoken even if there had been someone to speak to. She wore the snowshoes she had found back in the cabin and had brought the supplies, painkiller and bandages, whatever she might need to dress a wound. She wondered if trappers wore snowshoes. Probably not. Anyway, a trapper wouldn’t put himself through the unpleasantness of coming out in a heavy snow like this to check his traps. In New Mexico, the law was you had to check the traps every thirty-six hours, but who paid any attention? An animal trapped stayed trapped.

Summary:

What is the best way to tell a story? In this anthology, the first-ever collection of essays by innovative, cutting-edge writers on the theme of narration, forty of the continent's top experimental writers describe their engagement with language, storytelling and the world. The anthology includes renowned writers like Kathy Acker, Dennis Cooper, Nicole Brossard, Daphne Marlatt, Lydia Davis and Kevin Killian, writers who have spent years pondering the meaning of storytelling and how storytelling functions in our culture, as well as presenting a new generation of brilliant thinkers and writers, like Christian Bšk, Corey Frost, Derek McCormack and Lisa Robertson. Contemporizing the friendly anecdotal style of Montaigne and written by daring writers of different ages, of different origins, from many different regions of the continent, from Mexico to Montreal, these essays run the gamut of mirth, prose poetry, tall tales and playful explorations of reader/writer dynamics. They discuss aesthetics founded on new explorations in the field of narrative, the mystery that is the body, questions of how representation may be torqued to deal with gender and sexuality, the experience of marginalized people, the negotiation between different orders of time, the 'performance' of outlaw subject matter. Brave, energetic and fresh, Biting the Error tells a whole new story about narrative. Biting the Error is edited by Mary Burger, Robert GlŸck, Camille Roy and Gail Scott, the co-founders of the Narrativity Website Magazine, based at the Poetry Center, San Francisco State University.

Summary:

Une rançon marque le retour au roman de l'immense écrivain qu'est l'Australien David Malouf, prix Femina étranger pour Ce vaste monde. Il réinterprète ici magistralement l'une des scènes les plus célèbres de L'Iliade. Celle où Priam, du haut des murs de Troie, assiste à la profanation du corps d'Hector, traîné derrière le char d'un Achille rendu fou de douleur par la mort de son ami Patrocle. Prêt à tout pour récupérer le cadavre de son fils, le vieillard, dépouillé des attributs de la royauté, se dirige alors vers le camp des Grecs dans une simple charrette tirée par des mules. Achille et Priam: deux hommes face à leur souffrance, au chagrin, en quête de rédemption. Incandescent et crépusculaire, ce livre au lyrisme puissant et délicat, à l'instar de l'épopée légendaire qu'il restitue, résonne singulièrement dans le monde d'aujourd'hui. «Un chef-d'oeuvre, superbement écrit, plein de sagesse et extraordinairement émouvant, élaboré avec cet art indiscernable qui laisse le lecteur pantois.» Alberto Manguel «Un livre impressionnant qui marque durablement l'esprit du lecteur.» The New York Times

Summary:

Dans ce récit personnel, émouvant et totalement hilarant à la fois, la créatrice de Grey’s Anatomy et Scandal révèle comment apprendre à dire Oui a changé sa vie, et comment cela peut aussi changer la nôtre. Mère de trois enfants et de trois séries majeures, mais dotée d’un tempérament introverti, Shonda Rhimes est bombardée d’invitations et de sollicitations, et les refuser a longtemps été sa plus grande spécialité. Quand on dit non, on n’a rien de nouveau à craindre. Jusqu’à ce que sa sœur lui dise les mots fatals : « Tu ne dis jamais oui. » Une prise de conscience, et un challenge : Shonda Rhimes décida alors, pendant une année, à dire Oui. Affrontant ses peurs et sortant bravement de sa zone de confort, que ce soit pour parler en public, assumer son statut de mère qui travaille, ou oser aller vers les autres, elle passe par un véritable chemin de transformation qui lui permet de faire la paix avec elle même et de se reconnecter avec les parties les plus créatives et épanouies de se personnalité. Parce qu’il ne faut pas avoir peur du bonheur ! Points forts :•Une auteure mondialement acclamée•Un hymne déculpabilisant à la joie de vivre et un éloge de l’imperfection assumée et joyeuse•Une écriture pleine d’humour La réalisatrice et scénariste américaine (Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, Private Practice), décrite comme la femme la plus puissante de la télé américaine, raconte à la première personne comment elle a cessé de dire non à tout pour dire oui (sauf aux « cons » et à ceux qui veulent profiter d’elle) et s’ouvrir aux autres. Plus de 100 000 ex vendus aux US en quelques mois.

Summary:

Orphaned Julia never expected to be sent away, especially not to the ill-named House of Mercy. But adventure awaits her in this historical journey, based on a true story. “Go home,” eleven-year-old orphan Julia Delaney is told, but home for her is gone. Spirited and strong, Julia faces a cruel life at an orphanage—the House of Mercy—blistering cold winters, and countless disappointments. But not even hopeful Julia can imagine what awaits her in Montana—and with the help of a miracle or two, she sets the sun a-sailing. Like the heroines of the beloved American Girls series, Julia’s journey paints a vivid picture of United States history. Based on the true story of a real girl, with additional details explained in an Author’s Note, The Year We Sailed the Sun is historical fiction at its best.

"Il faut laisser sortir ses monstres, si on ne veut pas que ce soient eux qui nous bouffent." J'ai connu un potier dans le Berry : quand ça le faisait chier de faire des assiettes, toujours les mêmes, il prenait sa terre et il faisait un monstre. Un énorme monstre. En terre cuite. Et il disait : "Je fais ça parce qu'il faut que ça sorte ! J'en ai plein comme ça à l'intérieur de moi !" Il avait raison. Il faut laisser sortir ses monstres, si on ne veut pas que ce soient eux qui nous bouffent.

Summary:

Some men are worth sticking your neck out for. . . Sunni Marquette has always been a little different. There's the whole mind-reading thing, for a start, which comes in useful for a criminal defense attorney. Except that lately, Sunni keeps encountering people who are immune to her gift. Like Jacob Eddington, the star witness in her latest case. And her best friend Isabel's new fiancé, Richard Lazarus, who's as sinister as Jacob is attractive. Not that Sunni intends to interfere--until she learns that Richard is a vampire who's made a centuries-long career of marrying wealthy women, then killing them for their inheritance. Sunni is convinced Jacob is a vampire, too, and that he's her only chance of saving Isabel. With his help, she'll discover powers she never knew she possessed, an enemy who's closer than she could have ever guessed, and the kind of love that's worth staking everything on--if she can just stay alive long enough to enjoy it. . . Praise for Clare Willis and Once Bitten "This sexy, fast-paced paranormal has it all! You'll want to keep reading more." --Richelle Mead, New York Times bestselling author "Clare Willis offers a clever twist on the world of vampires." --Alexandra Ivy, New York Times bestselling author

Summary:

Dans un futur pas si lointain, la population vampire pullule, contraignant les autorités à mettre en place des zones de quarantaine appelées Zones froides pour tenter de juguler l’épidémie. A l’intérieur de ces ghettos, vampires et humains, prédateurs et proies, cohabitent dans une perpétuelle orgie sanglante. Mais les portes des Zones froides ne s’ouvrent que dans un sens : l’entrée est définitive. Et lorsque certains vampires s’en échappent, c’est pour le pire, et pas du tout le meilleur... Après une soirée trop arrosée, Tana se réveille entourée des cadavres de ses amis. Les seuls survivants du massacre ne sont autres que son ex, le désespérément sexy Aidan, et un mystérieux garçon aux yeux rubis assoiffé de vengeance. Tana n’a qu’une solution pour leur résister et survivre : se rendre au cœur de la cité dépravée. Entrez dans Coldtown.
