True Summit by David Roberts Summary

In a startling look at the classic Annapurna -- the most famous book about mountaineering -- David Roberts discloses what really happened on the legendary expedition to the Himalayan peak. In June 1950, a team of mountaineers was the first to conquer an 8,000-meter peak. Maurice Herzog, the leader of the expedition, became a national hero in France, and Annapurna, his account of the historic ascent, has long been regarded as the ultimate tale of courage and cooperation under the harshest of conditions. In True Summit, David Roberts presents a fascinating revision of this classic tale. Using newly available documents and information gleaned from a rare interview with Herzog (the only climber on the team still living), Roberts shows that the expedition was torn by dissent. As he re-creates the actual events, Roberts lays bare Herzog's self-serving determination and bestows long-delayed credit to the most accomplished and unsung heroes. These new revelations will inspire young adventurers and change forever the way we think about this victory in the mountains and the climbers who achieved it.

Vertigo by W. G. Sebald Summary

A masterwork of W. G. Sebald, now with a gorgeous new cover by the famed designer Peter Mendelsund Perfectly titled, Vertigo —W.G. Sebald's marvelous first novel — is a work that teeters on the edge: compelling, puzzling, and deeply unsettling. An unnamed narrator, beset by nervous ailments, journeys accross Europe to Vienna, Venice, Verona, Riva, and finally to his childhood home in a small Bavarian village. He is also journeying into the past. Traveling in the footsteps of Stendhal, Casanova, and Kafka, the narrator draws the reader, line by line, into a dizzying web of history, biography, legends, literature, and — most perilously — memories.

Camp 4 by Steve Roper Summary

* Includes stories of such greats as Royal Robbins, Yvon Chouinard, Allen Steck, and Warren Harding * Captures the raucous, outrageous, innovative spirit of climbing in Yosemie during this period * Portrays the advances in equipment and style that revolutionized big-wall climbing In the 1960's, California's Yosemite Valley was the center of the rock-climbing universe. Young nonconformists -- many of them the finest rock climbers in the world -- channeled their energy toward the largely untouched walls and cracks. Soon climbers from around the globe were coming to Camp 4 -- gathering spot for the creators of the Golden Age of Yosemite climbing -- to see what all the fuss was about. Climber and author Steve Roper spent most of 10 years living in the Yosemite Valley with its intriguing inhabitants. Camp 4 is his take on the era's top climbers and the influences behind their achievements. The text is full of stories both hilarious and revealing about the likes of bolt-disdaining Royal Robbins; fun-loving, big-wall expert Warren Harding; free-climber Frank Sacherer; multi-talented Chuck Pratt; master craftsman Yvon Chouinard; and ill-fated Mark Powell. Roper also tips his hat to the elder statesmen of the 1930s and 1940s who pioneered early, important climbs in the valley. Camp 4 looks at the most significant climbs, and the most riveting controversies of a legendary era. With more than 50 fascinating historical photographs, most never before published, Camp 4 is the definitive history of Yosemite climbing during this period.

Cloth Lullaby by Amy Novesky Summary

Louise Bourgeois (1911–2010) was a world-renowned modern artist noted for her sculptures made of wood, steel, stone, and cast rubber. Her most famous spider sculpture, Maman, stands more than 30 feet high. Just as spiders spin and repair their webs, Louise’s own mother was a weaver of tapestries. Louise spent her childhood in France as an apprentice to her mother before she became a tapestry artist herself. She worked with fabric throughout her career, and this biographical picture book shows how Bourgeois’s childhood experiences weaving with her loving, nurturing mother provided the inspiration for her most famous works. With a beautifully nuanced and poetic story, this book stunningly captures the relationship between mother and daughter and illuminates how memories are woven into us all.

Renaissance by Meredith Wild Summary

Tristan Red est un tueur à gages… Certaines personnes mesurent leur vie en heures. En jours. En semaines. Je mesure la mienne en contrats. Une opération militaire secrète qui a mal tourné m’a volé ma mémoire et tout ce qui me rattachait à mon passé. Et voilà mon existence aujourd’hui. Je tue pour survivre. Rien de plus, rien de moins. J’allais ajouter le nom d’Isabel Foster à mon carnet des âmes infortunées quand elle a prononcé l’unique mot capable d’arrêter la balle que je lui destinais. Mon nom. Elle connaît mon visage. Elle sait qui je suis. Elle est la clé de la porte des souvenirs que je ne suis pas certain de vouloir ouvrir. Plus rien n’est simple. J’ai toujours un boulot à faire, et mon âme ne vaut pas la peine d’être sauvée. Je ne suis pas celui qu’elle croit. Je suis incapable de l’aimer. L’épargner a fait de nous deux des cibles.

The Tongue's Blood Does Not Run Dry by Assia Djebar Summary

What happens when catastrophe becomes an everyday occurrence? Each of the seven stories in Assia Djebar’s The Tongue’s Blood Does Not Run Dry reaches into the void where normal and impossible realities coexist. All the stories were written in 1995 and 1996—a time when, by official accounts, some two hundred thousand Algerians were killed in Islamist assassinations and government army reprisals. Each story grew from a real conversation on the streets of Paris between the author and fellow Algerians about what was happening in their native land. Contemporary events are joined on the page by classical themes in Arab literature, whether in the form of Berber texts sung by the women of the Mzab or the tales from The Book of One Thousand and One Nights. The Tongue’s Blood Does Not Run Dry beautifully explores the conflicting realities of the role of women in the Arab world. With renowned and unparalleled skill, Assia Djebar gives voice to her longing for a world she has put behind her.

Balcony in the Forest by Julien Gracq Summary

It is the fall of 1939, and Lieutenant Grange and his men are living in a chalet above a concrete bunker deep in the Ardennes forest, charged with defending the French-Belgian border against the Germans in a war that seems unreal, distant, and unlikely. Far more immediate is the earthy life of the forest itself and the deep sensations of childhood it recalls from Grange’s memory. Ostensibly readying for war, Grange instead spends his time observing the change in seasons, falling in love with a young free-spirited widow, and contemplating the absurd stasis of his present condition. This novel of long takes, dream states, and little dramatic action culminates abruptly in battle, an event that is as much the real incursion of the German army into France as it is the sudden intrusion of death into the suspended disbelief of life. Richard Howard’s skilled translation captures the fairy-tale otherworldliness and existential dread of this unusual, elusive novel (first published in 1958) by the supreme prose stylist Julien Gracq.

Carnets de doute by Isa van Acker Summary

Carnets de doute, qui propose une lecture novatrice de trois romans majeurs de J.M.G. Le Clézio (Le livre des fuites, Le chercheur d'or, La quarantaine), s'adresse aussi bien aux chercheurs et étudiants universitaires qu'à tout lecteur amateur de Le Clézio. A partir de microlectures qui prennent en compte le détail du texte et visent à faire ressortir les champs de tension qui sous-tendent l'œuvre, Isa Van Acker examine les modulations lecléziennes de la thématique du voyage dans leurs divers rapports avec la tradition littéraire et les paradoxes qui marquent l'époque contemporaine. En un temps où la notion de voyage fait l'objet de critiques courantes comme de multiples tentatives de revalorisation, l'écriture leclézienne se caractérise selon l'auteur par une part d'inquiétude et d'interrogation qui, transformant ses romans en autant de « carnets de doute », est constitutive à la fois de leur richesse insoupçonnée.

Carnets de captivité by Paul Reynaud Summary

Dans les années 30, Paul Reynaud fut l'un des rares hommes politiques à dénoncer les faiblesses et les impasses de la France, en particulier dans le domaine militaire, et c'est beaucoup trop tard (le 21 mars 1940) qu'il fut appelé au pouvoir. Vichy ne pouvait dès lors que vouer aux gémonies l'avant-dernier président du Conseil de la IIIe République, qui s'était farouchement opposé à tout armistice: arrêté dès le 6 septembre 1940, il fut interné en France avant d'être livré à l'occupant en novembre 1942 et de passer encore deux ans et demi en captivité sur le sol même du Reich. Totalement inédits à ce jour, les carnets qu'il rédige durant cette période noire et auxquels il livre ses méditations sur les événements récents, sur les informations _ partielles et partiales _ qui lui parviennent, sur ses entretiens avec ses compagnons de détention (Mandel, Jouhaux, Daladier, Michel Clemenceau, Weygand, etc.), sur sa vision de l'avenir constituent un document précieux entre tous sur la guerre, sur Vichy et aussi bien sûr sur Reynaud lui-même. Celui-ci s'y montre, en dépit de conditions de vie très dures, un démocrate indéfectible et un patriote inflexible, un homme d'Etat et un humaniste authentique.

Carnets de santé by Luc Perino Summary

Voilà vingt-deux histoires qui n’en font qu’une : celle d’un médecin généraliste qui nous ouvre les portes de son cabinet. Serons-nous mis en situation de voyeurs ? Luc Perino ne nous en donne pas l’occasion, car il nous entraîne dans ce qu’il y a de profondément humain dans chacune de ses consultations. Il dresse des portraits sensibles de ses patients, fragiles, contradictoires, souvent touchants, parfois irritants. Partant de ce qu’ils expriment, il mène l’enquête. Loin de nier leur souffrance, il la réintègre dans la globalité de leur corps, de leur vie. Il ne soigne pas un organe mais une personne. Dans ces symptômes, il perçoit aussi ceux de notre société. Il constate, résiste, s’insurge contre les lois du marché de la santé qui nous font prendre des vessies pour des lanternes. Luc Perino n’est pas un observateur passif. Décapant, impertinent, ce livre est aussi empreint d’humour et de poésie.
