Un thriller fantastique. Roman choc à la Tabachnik, qui stigmatise avec force les fanatismes de tous bords. Nathan se refuse à invoquer les terribles puissances qui couvent sous le cimetière juif de Prague. Nathan est un sage. Mais lorsque des émeutes éclatent dans les banlieues de la mégapole, que le gouvernement décrète l’état d’urgence et que son peuple risque une fois encore de payer le prix fort à l’Histoire, le jeune kabbaliste n’hésite plus. D’autant que les frères ennemis musulmans semblent avoir déchaîné une créature propre à semer le chaos jusque dans les rangs serrés des forces d’intervention. Glaise contre béton, fournaise sur la ville, monstre contre monstre, lorsque les légendes heurtent de plein fouet la modernité, c’est un cocktail Molotov qui embrase la vérité des violences urbaines...

This book will illuminate your heart." — Nina George, New York Times bestselling author of The Little Paris Bookshop Don’t miss this curiously charming debut! In this hauntingly beautiful story of love, loneliness and self-discovery, an endearing widower embarks on a life-changing adventure. Sixty-nine-year-old Arthur Pepper lives a simple life. He gets out of bed at precisely 7:30 a.m., just as he did when his wife, Miriam, was alive. He dresses in the same gray slacks and mustard sweater vest, waters his fern, Frederica, and heads out to his garden. But on the one-year anniversary of Miriam’s death, something changes. Sorting through Miriam’s possessions, Arthur finds an exquisite gold charm bracelet he’s never seen before. What follows is a surprising and unforgettable odyssey that takes Arthur from London to Paris and as far as India in an epic quest to find out the truth about his wife’s secret life before they met—a journey that leads him to find hope, healing and self-discovery in the most unexpected places. Featuring an unforgettable cast of characters with big hearts and irresistible flaws, The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper is a joyous celebration of life’s infinite possibilities. More Praise: "Tender, insightful, and surprising… [Arthur Pepper] will instantly capture the hearts of readers who loved Rachel Joyce’s The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, Nina George’s The Little Paris Bookshop, and Antoine Laurain’s The Red Notebook." — Library Journal, starred review

The magnificent title story of this collection of fairy tales for adults describes the strange and uncanny relationship between its extravagantly intelligent heroine--a world renowned scholar of the art of story-telling--and the marvelous being that lives in a mysterious bottle, found in a dusty shop in an Istanbul bazaar. As A.S. Byatt renders this relationship with a powerful combination of erudition and passion, she makes the interaction of the natural and the supernatural seem not only convincing, but inevitable. The companion stories in this collection each display different facets of Byatt's remarkable gift for enchantment. They range from fables of sexual obsession to allegories of political tragedy; they draw us into narratives that are as mesmerizing as dreams and as bracing as philosophical meditations; and they all us to inhabit an imaginative universe astonishing in the precision of its detail, its intellectual consistency, and its splendor. "A dreamy treat.... It is not merely strange, it is wondrous." --Boston Globe "Alternatingly erudite and earthy, direct and playful.... If Scheherazade ever needs a break, Byatt can step in, indefinitely." --Chicago Tribune "Byatt's writing is crystalline and splendidly imaginative.... These [are] perfectly formed tales." --Washington Post Book World From the Trade Paperback edition.

Professeur de psychologie à Paris-VIII, Tobie Nathan utilise l'ethnopsychiatrie pour soigner les migrants. Au lieu d'imposer une vision freudienne, il cherche avec eux, dans leurs mots et coutumes, les moyens de réparer leur monde. " Tobie Nathan ose préconiser des amulettes, prescrire des sacrifices... Pire ! Il préfère les ghettos des cités, parce que ces tours préservent les cultures des migrants... Antirépublicain. Sorcier, gourou, imposteur, IMPOSTEUR ! " Voilà ce qui décida Catherine Clément à y regarder de plus près. Née en 1939, normalienne, philosophe, formée à la psychanalyse, auteur des premiers livres sur Claude Lévi-Strauss et Jacques Lacan, après de nombreuses années vécues à l'étranger, elle a l'esprit libre, débarrassé des préjugés français. " Juive de mère, survivante, ayant tiré de là une force titanesque, c'est ça aussi, Catherine, l'art de continuer à se saisir des objets du monde avec la même peur et la même urgence qu'au sortir de la guerre ", écrit Tobie Nathan à son propos. Ils se sont affrontés joyeusement un été, et puis ils ont cherché à ravauder le monde, lui avec ses grigris, elle avec son divan.

A past they have both refused to confront until now.Over the course of a particularly mauling Suffolk winter, Landyn and Vale grapple with their memories and their pain, raking over what remains of their fragile family unit, constantly at odds and under threat of falling apart forever. While Vale makes increasingly desperate decisions, Landyn retreats, finding solace in the land, his animals - and a fox who haunts the farm and seems to bring with her both comfort and protection.Alive to language and nature, MIDWINTER is a novel about guilt, blame and lost opportunities. Ultimately it is a story about love and the lengths we will go to find our way home.

For readers of Station Eleven and The Snow Child, Lily Brooks-Dalton’s haunting debut is the unforgettable story of two outsiders—a lonely scientist in the Arctic and an astronaut trying to return to Earth—as they grapple with love, regret, and survival in a world transformed. NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY SHELF AWARENESS AND THE CHICAGO REVIEW OF BOOKS • COLSON WHITEHEAD'S FAVORITE BOOK OF 2016 (Esquire) Augustine, a brilliant, aging astronomer, is consumed by the stars. For years he has lived in remote outposts, studying the sky for evidence of how the universe began. At his latest posting, in a research center in the Arctic, news of a catastrophic event arrives. The scientists are forced to evacuate, but Augustine stubbornly refuses to abandon his work. Shortly after the others have gone, Augustine discovers a mysterious child, Iris, and realizes that the airwaves have gone silent. They are alone. At the same time, Mission Specialist Sullivan is aboard the Aether on its return flight from Jupiter. The astronauts are the first human beings to delve this deep into space, and Sully has made peace with the sacrifices required of her: a daughter left behind, a marriage ended. So far the journey has been a success. But when Mission Control falls inexplicably silent, Sully and her crewmates are forced to wonder if they will ever get home. As Augustine and Sully each face an uncertain future against forbidding yet beautiful landscapes, their stories gradually intertwine in a profound and unexpected conclusion. In crystalline prose, Good Morning, Midnight poses the most important questions: What endures at the end of the world? How do we make sense of our lives? Lily Brooks-Dalton’s captivating debut is a meditation on the power of love and the bravery of the human heart. Praise for Good Morning, Midnight “Stunningly gorgeous . . . The book contemplates the biggest questions—What is left at the end of the world? What is the impact of a life’s work?”—Portland Mercury “A beautifully written, sparse post-apocalyptic novel that explores memory, loss and identity . . . Fans of Emily St. John Mandel’s Station Eleven and Kim Stanley Robinson’s Aurora will appreciate the Brooks-Dalton’s exquisite exploration of relationships in extreme environments.”—The Washington Post “Ambitious . . . Brooks-Dalton’s prose lights up the page in great swathes, her dialogue sharp and insightful, and the high-concept plot drives a story of place, elusive love, and the inexorable yearning for human contact.”—Publishers Weekly “Beautiful descriptions create a sense of wonder and evoke feelings of desolation. . . . Brooks-Dalton’s heartfelt debut novel unfolds at a perfect pace as it asks readers what will be left when everything in the world is gone.”—Booklist “Good Morning, Midnight is a remarkable and gifted debut novel. Lily Brooks-Dalton is an uncanny chronicler of desolate spaces, whether it’s the cold expanse of the universe or the deepest recesses of the human heart.”—Colson Whitehead “With imagination, empathy, and insight into unchanged and unchangeable human nature, Lily Brooks-Dalton takes us on an emotional journey in this beautiful debut.”—Yiyun Li “A truly original novel, otherworldly and profoundly human . . . Good Morning, Midnight is a fascinating story, surprising and inspiring at every turn.”—Keith Scribner

Depuis sa victoire face à Lovelace, Nathaniel est devenu un membre influent du gouvernement des magiciens. Mais sa réussite fulgurante fait des envieux et Nathaniel, chargé de lutter contre la Résistance, sait que la moindre erreur lui sera fatale. Aussi, lorsqu'une mystérieuse entité dévaste Londres, le jeune ambitieux préfère invoquer de nouveau son ancien complice, le djinn Bartiméus. À contrecoeur, Bartiméus reprend du service et ne tarde pas à découvrir que l'entité dévastatrice n'est autre qu'un Golem, monstre qu'on croyait disparu depuis longtemps. Nathaniel et Bartiméus s'envolent pour Prague, ville de création du Golem, pour en savoir plus. Des dangers terribles les y attendent... Vendue dans vingt pays, La Trilogie de Bartiméus est considérée comme la première rivale sérieuse d'À la croisée des mondes de Philip Pullman. Un mélange d'univers magique, d'aventure et de suspense, le tout saupoudré d'une ironie mordante.
