Jack is not a normal boy. He can talk to ghosts. In his new home, an aging farmhouse, he meets the Ghost Mother, a grief-stricken spirit who becomes very attached to him...too attached. He learns that the Ghost Mother is preying in the cruelest imaginable way on four child ghosts who are trapped in the house, stealing their energy to sustain her own. Before Jack can figure out how to help them, the Ghost Mother takes possession of his real mother’s body. Jack wants to fight back, but he has severe asthma and risks fatal attacks with any physical exertion. It will take all his resources, and his mother’s as well, to fight off the Ghost Mother and save the ghost children from a horrible fate.

Six children leave the comfort of their homes. They are drawn to Coldharbour - an eerie wasteland of wind, rats, seagulls and rubbish tips. Emily and Freda, the twins, scuttle bright eyed and insect-like in search of the others. They find Thomas on a food tip. The gentle giant boy Walter joins them and so does Helen, who can read minds. And at the centre of it all is luminous Milo, his skin hot and bright with silver. Each of them has a unique gift, but they must learn to use their skills fast. Drawing ever closer in a maelstrom of fury is the Roar, something vast and dreadful that wants to destroy them all. As in The Doomspell trilogy, Cliff's characters really are 'the children next door' until they discover the powers they possess and he sweeps them and the reader into his worlds of magical fantasy, writing exciting, breathtaking adventures with richly imagined, vividly drawn characters, and an infectious energy, warmth and humour. The Silver Child is book 1 in a heart-stopping new sequence.

"La domination du capitalisme fut telle qu’elle cessa d’être perçue comme une idéologie. Elle est devenue le modèle par défaut, le comportement naturel. Elle s’est infiltrée dans la normalité, a colonisé l’ordinaire, au point que la contester est apparu comme aussi absurde ou ésotérique qu’une remise en cause de la réalité elle-même. Dès lors, le pas fut aisément et promptement franchi pour affirmer : “Il n’y a pas d’alternative.”" Dans cette série d’essais, Arundhati Roy, l’auteure du sublime roman Le Dieu des Petits Riens, s’intéresse à la face cachée de la démocratie indienne — un pays de 1,2 milliard d’habitants où les cent personnes les plus riches possèdent l’équivalent d’un quart du produit intérieur brut. Ce texte virulent présente un portrait féroce et lucide d’un pays hanté par ses fantômes : ceux des centaines de milliers de fermiers qui n’ont pour seule échappatoire à leurs dettes que le suicide ; ceux des centaines de millions de personnes qui vivent avec moins de deux dollars par jour. Face à eux, une infime minorité de la population contrôle la majorité des richesses et parvient à dicter la politique gouvernementale. Cette classe corrompue par l’omniprésence des ONG et des fondations est au cœur du système remis en cause par l’auteure. Cependant, Roy va au-delà du pamphlet contre le capitalisme et propose une véritable réflexion sur son histoire et ses rouages. Avant de conclure par plusieurs propositions pour en sortir, le temps d’un discours aux militants d’Occupy Wall Street.

The acclaimed New York Times–bestselling biography and “emotionally detailed portrait of the artist as a young man” (Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times) Since his untimely death by suicide at the age of forty-six in 2008, David Foster Wallace has become more than the representative writer of his literary generation—he has become a symbol of sincerity and honesty in an inauthentic age, a figure whose reputation and reach grow by the day. In this compulsively readable biography, D. T. Max charts Wallace’s tormented, anguished, and often triumphant battle to succeed as a novelist as he fights off depression and addiction to emerge with his masterpiece, Infinite Jest. Written with the cooperation of Wallace family members and friends and with access to hundreds of Wallace’s unpublished letters, manuscripts, and journals, this revelatory biography illuminates the unique connections between Wallace’s life and his fiction in a gripping and deeply moving narrative that will transfix readers.

Lorsqu' elle part pour New York rejoindre sa mère qu'elle n'a jamais vue qu'en photographie, Sophie, du haut de ses douze ans, l'ignore encore. Son destin de petite fille qui découvre aux Etats-Unis la grisaille et le racisme, puis de jeune femme confrontée aux difficultés de l'amour et au secret de sa naissance, c'est aussi un peu le destin de sa mère, de sa grand-mère et de toutes les femmes d'Haïti.

Le destin incroyable de Louis Zamperini, coureur olympique et vétéran de la Seconde Guerre mondiale. Bientôt au cinéma ! Louis Zamperini est né en 1917 à New York. Quand il arrive en Californie, trois ans plus tard, il ne parle que l'italien. Dans un contexte de dépression économique, peu de perspectives d'avenir s'offrent à lui. C'est son inscription dans l'équipe scolaire de course de fond qui changera sa vie à tout jamais. Il devient alors une gloire locale et participe aux jeux Olympiques de 1936. Mais sa chance tourne en 1941, lorsqu'il s'engage dans l'armée. Après un bombardement japonais, son avion s'abîme dans le Pacifique et il est fait prisonnier. Dans les camps de travail, il est soumis à des conditions de vie atroces mais surtout à un tortionnaire vicieux et sadique. En véritable force de la nature, il survit à toutes ces épreuves. A son retour aux Etats-Unis, il est considéré par ses proches comme un héros. Toutefois, son traumatisme est tel qu'il plonge dans l'alcool et la violence. Sa rédemption vient alors de sa foi et de son premier amour : la course. Ce livre témoigne du parcours prodigieux d'un champion pris dans la tourmente d'une période historique chaotique.

A Penguin Classic “Age can never dull this kind of writing,” writes the Chicago Tribune of John Steinbeck’s dispatches from World War II, filed for the New York Herald Tribune in 1943, which vividly captured the human side of war. Writing from England in the midst of the London blitz, North Africa, and Italy, Steinbeck focuses on the people as opposed to the battles, portraying everyone from the guys in the bomber crew to Bob Hope on his USO tour. He eats and drinks with soldiers behind enemy lines, talks with them, and fights beside them. First published in book form in 1958, these writings, now with a new introduction by Mark Bowden, create an unforgettable portrait of life in wartime that continues to resonate with truth and humanity.
