Happy People Read and Drink Coffee by Agnes Martin-Lugand Summary

She fled Paris to lose herself. The love she found would change everything. Diane seems to have the perfect life. She is a wife, a mother, and the owner of Happy People Read and Drink Coffee, a cozy literary cafe in Paris. But when she suddenly loses her husband and daughter in a car accident, her life is overturned and the world as she knows it instantly disappears. Trapped and haunted by her memories, Diane closes her shop and retreats from her friends and family, unable and unwilling to move forward. But one year later, Diane shocks her loved ones and makes the surprising decision to move to a small town on the Irish coast, finally determined to heal by rebuilding her life alone-until she meets Edward, a handsome and moody Irish photographer who lives next door. At first abrasive and unwelcoming, Edward initially resents Diane’s intrusion into his life of solitude . . . until he can no longer keep her at arm’s length. Along windy shores and cobbled streets, Diane falls into a surprising and tumultuous romance. As she works to overcome her painful memories and truly heal, Diane and Edward’s once-in-a-lifetime connection inspires her to love herself and the world around her with newfound inner strength and happiness. But will it last when Diane leaves Ireland, and Edward, for good? At once heartbreaking and uplifting, Diane’s story is deeply felt, reminding us that love remembered is love enduring.

Allmen and the Dragonflies by Martin Suter Summary

“In the honorable vein of elegant, gentleman thieves, comes Allmen, the colorful protagonist of Suter’s beautifully observed, deliciously fun novel” (Noah Charney, author of The Museum of Lost Art). Johann Friedrich von Allmen, a bon vivant of dandified refinement, has exhausted his family fortune. Forced to downscale, Allmen inhabits the garden house of his former Zurich estate, attended by his Guatemalan butler, Carlos. When not reading novels by Balzac and Somerset Maugham, he plays jazz on a Bechstein baby grand. Allmen’s fortunes take a sharp turn when he meets Jojo, a stunning blonde whose lakeside villa contains five Art Nouveau bowls created by renowned French artist Émile Gallé and decorated with a dragonfly motif. Allmen, seeking to pay off mounting debts, absconds with the priceless bowls and embarks on a high-risk, potentially violent bid to cash them in. This is the first of a series of humorous, fast-paced detective novels devoted to a memorable gentleman thief who, with his trusted sidekick, Carlos, creates an investigative firm to recover missing precious objects. “A rollicking good time . . . Bestselling Swiss author Martin Suter may have a classic on his hands in this contemporary crime novel, the first of a series featuring the memorable character of Johann Friedrich von Allmen, gentleman thief.” —The Winnipeg Free Press “Suter combines sleight-of-hand suspense with stunning art and slightly worn Old World elegance to create a smartly entertaining read . . . A classy puzzler.” —Library Journal “The dark charms of Suter’s novel are irresistible from the first pages.” —Joshua Max Feldman, author of Start WithoutMe

The Florios of Sicily by Stefania Auci Summary

Based on the true history of the uncrowned kings of Sicily: the story of a family, restless and ambitious, shrewd and determined to be richer and more powerful than anybody else. In this grand, sweeping epic inspired by the real lives of history-making titans, international best-selling author Stefania Auci brings to life the dark secrets, the loves and betrayals, and the cruel acts of revenge that marked the Florio family’s century of influence. The Florios arrive in Sicily, with nothing but the clothes on their back after an earthquake destroys their hometown. Against all odds, the family begins anew despite the looming Napoleonic wars and devastating plagues. But when Vincenzo is spurned by his aristocratic lover, he vows to avenge his honor by becoming the wealthiest man in Italy. Sacrificing love and family, he strives to buy what cannot be his by birth. Not to be outdone by the men, the Florio women unapologetically demand their place outside the restraints of caring mothers, alluring lovers, or wounded wives. Giulia, though only a mistress, is fiercely intelligent and runs the empire from the shadows. Angelina, born a bastard, charts her own future against the wishes of her father. In this epic yet intimate tale of power, passion, and revenge, the rise and fall of a family taps into the universal desire to become more than who we are born as.

From the Land of the Moon by Milena Agus Summary

“Powerful . . . The vivid descriptions of the Sardinian landscape are a fitting complement to the heroine’s conflicted heart” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review). As this compelling novel opens, a young unnamed woman reflects on the life of her bewitching, eccentric, and fiercely emotional grandmother, whose abiding search for love spans much of the twentieth century. In 1943, as American bombs fall on the city of Cagliari, she is thirty and considered an old maid, still living at home with her parents. But when the bombing ceases, and despite her protests, her father forces her to marry the first man to propose, an older widower she doesn’t love. After suffering several miscarriages, she is sent for treatment at a spa on the mainland, where she falls in love with an injured Italian army veteran. Back home, she gives birth to a son. She never reveals the affair to her husband—but decades later, she returns to the mainland and travels to her former lover’s hometown of Milan. Dressed in her finest coat and shoes, she wanders the streets in search of the elusive veteran . . . Set against a backdrop of rugged mountains and Italian villages lost in time, this international bestselling novel is a multigenerational family saga about love, lust, and country. “Agus’s descriptions of the everyday are as beautiful and haunting as her portrayal of life’s most dramatic episodes. Add an unexpected ending and the result is a graceful, powerful book.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

In the Absence of Men by Philippe Besson Summary

'An astonishing love story, beautifully told' Time Out 'I am sixteen. I am as old as the century' It is 1916. Vincent is sixteen, on the brink of manhood. Vincent is aristocratic and privileged, frequenting the salons of Paris while France is at war and the city almost deserted of men. In that brutal summer, Vincent's beauty and precocity captivate two men: Marcel, thirty years his senior, a writer and celebrated socialite; and Arthur, the twenty-one year old son of one of the servants, who is now a soldier at the front. As both relationships develop Vincent intuitively tries to keep his passions separate, but over the weeks of indolent Parisian summer and far-off war, confidences are made, absences endured, secrets revealed. All of these men will suffer, and Vincent will lose the last vestiges of his childhood innocence. In the Absence of Men is a stunning first novel to discover this pride season: in its daring in representation and celebration of gay sexuality, in the beauty of its prose and in its delicacy of feeling.

The Anomaly by Hervé Le Tellier Summary

A New York Times bestseller and a "Best Thriller of the Year" Winner of the Goncourt Prize and now an international phenomenon, this dizzying, whip-smart novel blends crime, fantasy, sci-fi, and thriller as it plumbs the mysteries surrounding a Paris-New York flight. Who would we be if we had made different choices? Told that secret, left that relationship, written that book? We all wonder—the passengers of Air France 006 will find out. In their own way, they were all living double lives when they boarded the plane: Blake, a respectable family man who works as a contract killer. Slimboy, a Nigerian pop star who uses his womanizing image to hide that he’s gay. Joanna, a Black American lawyer pressured to play the good old boys’ game to succeed with her Big Pharma client. Victor Miesel, a critically acclaimed yet largely obscure writer suddenly on the precipice of global fame. About to start their descent to JFK, they hit a shockingly violent patch of turbulence, emerging on the other side to a reality both perfectly familiar and utterly strange. As it charts the fallout of this logic-defying event, The Anomaly takes us on a journey from Lagos and Mumbai to the White House and a top-secret hangar. In Hervé Le Tellier’s most ambitious work yet, high literature follows the lead of a bingeable Netflix series, drawing on the best of genre fiction from “chick lit” to mystery, while also playfully critiquing their hallmarks. An ingenious, timely variation on the doppelgänger theme, it taps into the parts of ourselves that elude us most.

Love & Saffron by Kim Fay Summary

The Instant National Bestseller and #1 Indie Next Pick In the vein of the classic 84, Charing Cross Road, this witty and tender novel follows two women in 1960s America as they discover that food really does connect us all, and that friendship and laughter are the best medicine. When twenty-seven-year-old Joan Bergstrom sends a fan letter--as well as a gift of saffron--to fifty-nine-year-old Imogen Fortier, a life-changing friendship begins. Joan lives in Los Angeles and is just starting out as a writer for the newspaper food pages. Imogen lives on Camano Island outside Seattle, writing a monthly column for a Pacific Northwest magazine, and while she can hunt elk and dig for clams, she’s never tasted fresh garlic--exotic fare in the Northwest of the sixties. As the two women commune through their letters, they build a closeness that sustains them through the Cuban Missile Crisis, the assassination of President Kennedy, and the unexpected in their own lives. Food and a good life—they can’t be separated. It is a discovery the women share, not only with each other, but with the men in their lives. Because of her correspondence with Joan, Imogen’s decades-long marriage blossoms into something new and exciting, and in turn, Joan learns that true love does not always come in the form we expect it to. Into this beautiful, intimate world comes the ultimate test of Joan and Imogen’s friendship—a test that summons their unconditional trust in each other. A brief respite from our chaotic world, Love & Saffron is a gem of a novel, a reminder that food and friendship are the antidote to most any heartache, and that human connection will always be worth creating.

The Laughing People by Serge Bouchard Summary

The Laughing People, translated from the award-winning Le peuple rieur, conveys the richness and resilience of the Innu while reminding us of the forces – old and new – that threaten their community. This memoir and tribute tells the tale of the very long journey of a very small nation, recounting both its joie de vivre and its crosses borne. Readers follow Serge Bouchard, a young anthropologist in the 1970s, as he arrives in Ekuanitshit (Mingan, Quebec) and comes to know its residents. His observations and questions document a community weathering yet another season of change – skidoos replace dogsleds and forests are bulldozed for prefabricated housing – while nonetheless defying external pressures to assimilate or disappear altogether. Returning to these texts fifty years later, Bouchard moves beyond platitudes of strength and dives into wide-scale injustices to present the sacrifices and beauty of the Innu people on individual terms. Whether recounting the impact of the residential school system on Georges Mestokosho, the wave of Innu activism inspired by An Antane Kapesh, or the uncelebrated work of women like Nishapet Enim, The Laughing People presents an opportunity for readers to be part of the preservation and proliferation of these important stories.

The Life List by Lori Nelson Spielman Summary

INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER In this utterly charming debut—perfect for fans of Cecelia Ahern’s P.S., I Love You and Allison Winn Scotch’s Time of My Life—one woman sets out to complete her old list of childhood goals, and finds that her lifelong dreams lead her down a path she never expects. 1. Go to Paris 2. Have a baby, maybe two 3. Fall in love Brett Bohlinger seems to have it all: a plum job, a spacious loft, an irresistibly handsome boyfriend. All in all, a charmed life. That is, until her beloved mother passes away, leaving behind a will with one big stipulation: In order to receive her inheritance, Brett must first complete the life list of goals she’d written when she was a naïve girl of fourteen. Grief-stricken, Brett can barely make sense of her mother’s decision—her childhood dreams don’t resemble her ambitions at age thirty-four in the slightest. Some seem impossible. How can she possibly have a relationship with a father who died seven years ago? Other goals (Be an awesome teacher!) would require her to reinvent her entire future. As Brett reluctantly embarks on a perplexing journey in search of her adolescent dreams, one thing becomes clear. Sometimes life’s sweetest gifts can be found in the most unexpected places. Praise for The Life List “A wonderful, touching story that reminds us to live life to its fullest.”—Cecelia Ahern, New York Times bestselling author of P.S., I Love You “Spielman’s debut charms.”—Kirkus Reviews “You won’t want to miss Lori Nelson Spielman’s remarkable debut, an intensely emotional novel of transformation and trust.

And Their Children After Them by Nicolas Mathieu Summary

Named a Best Book of the Year by The Times (UK) and the Los Angeles Public Library Winner of the 2018 Goncourt Prize, this poignant coming-of-age tale captures the distinct feeling of summer in a region left behind by global progress. August 1992. One afternoon during a heatwave in a desolate valley somewhere in eastern France, with its dormant blast furnaces and its lake, fourteen-year-old Anthony and his cousin decide to steal a canoe to explore the famous nude beach across the water. The trip ultimately takes Anthony to his first love and a summer that will determine everything that happens afterward. Nicolas Mathieu conjures up a valley, an era, and the political journey of a young generation that has to forge its own path in a dying world. Four summers and four defining moments, from “Smells Like Teen Spirit” to the 1998 World Cup, encapsulate the hectic lives of the inhabitants of a France far removed from the centers of globalization, torn between decency and rage.

The Singapore Water Story by Cecilia Tortajada,Yugal Kishore Joshi,Asit K. Biswas Summary

Singapore ́s journey during the past 45 years is an outstanding example that, in spite of multiple hardships, pragmatic policies, clear visions, long-term planning, forward-looking strategies and political will, as well as a relentless urge to improve, can result in strong foundations for sustainable development. This book describes the journey of Singapore ́s development and the fundamental role that water has had in shaping it. What makes this case so unique is that the quest for self-sufficiency in terms of water availability in a fast-changing urban context has been crucial to the way development policies and agendas have been planned throughout the years. The authors analyse plans, policies, institutions, laws and regulations, water demand and water supply strategies, water quality and water conservation considerations, partnerships and importance of the media. They assess overall how all these issues have evolved in response to the dynamic needs of the city-state. The study of Singapore shows how a dynamic society can address development without losing its focus on the environment. In the city-state, environmental concerns in general, and water concerns in particular, have played a major role in its transformation from a third word to a first world country. How and why this transformation took place is the main focus of this authoritative book.

The Enigma of Room 622 by Joël Dicker Summary

A burnt-out thriller writer desperate to regain his creative spark becomes intrigued by a decade-old unsolved murder at a glamorous Alpine hotel in this meticulously crafted novel—a matryoshka doll of a mystery built with the precision of a Swiss watch—from the internationally bestselling author of The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair. One December night, a corpse is found in Room 622 of the Hotel Verbier, a luxury resort in the Swiss Alps. An intense police investigation begins, yet few leads are found. Time passes, and without any breaks in the case, public interest wanes. Years later, Joël Dicker, Switzerland’s novelist extraordinaire, arrives at the Verbier to recover from a bad breakup, mourn the death of his longtime publisher, and hopefully begin a new novel. While trying to solve the puzzle of his next book, Joël’s expertise in the art of the thriller put to the test when he decides to play Sherlock Holmes and look into the hotel’s long-unsolved murder case. He finds his Watson in Scarlett, a beautiful aspiring novelist staying in the next room, who joins Dicker in the investigation. Meanwhile, in the wake of his father's passing, Macaire Ebezner is poised to take over as president of the largest private bank in Switzerland. The succession captivates the news media, and the future looks bright—until it doesn't. The bank’s board, including Lev Levovitch—Geneva’s very own Jay Gatsby—has other plans, and Macaire’s triumphant rise to the top soon becomes a race against time. The Enigma of Room 622 is a diabolically addictive thriller in which a love triangle, a power struggle, shocking betrayals, and deadly envy play out against the backdrop of a not so placid Switzerland, as the truth twists and turns into something most . . . unexpected. Translated from the French by Robert Bononno

The Last One by Fatima Daas Summary

“Fatima Daas carves out a portrait, like a patient, attentive sculptor...or like a mine searcher, aware that each word could make everything explode.” —Virginie Despentes Drawn from the author’s experiences growing up in a Paris banlieue, a powerful, lyric debut that explores the diverse, often conflicting facets of her identity—French, Algerian, Muslim, lesbian. The youngest daughter of Algerian immigrants, Fatima Daas is raised in a home where love and sexuality are considered taboo, and signs of affection avoided. Living in the majority-Muslim suburb of Clichy-sous-Bois, she often spends more than three hours a day on public transportation to and from the city, where she feels like a tourist observing Parisian manners. She goes from unstable student to maladjusted adult, doing four years of therapy—her longest relationship. But as she gains distance from her family and comes into her own, she grapples more directly with her attraction to women and how it fits with her religion, which she continues to practice. When Nina comes into her life, she doesn’t know exactly what she needs but feels that something crucial has been missing. This extraordinary first novel, anchored and buoyed by the refrain “My name is Fatima,” is a vital portrait of a young woman finding herself in a modern world full of contradictions. Daas’s journey to living her sexuality in spite of expectations about who she should be offers a powerful perspective on the queer experience.

Fish Change Direction In Cold Weather by Pierre Szalowski Summary

When his parents tell him that they’re splitting up and his dad leaves home, a ten-year-old boy begs the sky to help him. The next day, a storm covers Montreal in a deep layer of ice. As the power goes out across the city and the temperature drops, people must help each other in order to survive. The boy is convinced that it’s all his fault. But at least one neighbourhood will never be the same. Julie, the exotic dancer who lives across the street, helps Boris, an eccentric Russian mathematician, save his fish from the cold weather. And the urbane Michel and Simon open their door to Alexis, their homophobic neighbour, and his son. Three days in the frozen city will turn their lives upside down—but will the ice storm bring the boy’s parents back together? Sparklingly funny, wise and joyful, Fish Change Direction in Cold Weather reminds us that life is full of the unexpected, and that happy endings might still be possible. Praise for Fish Change Direction in Cold Weather "If it's possible to romp through a natural disaster, Pierre Szalowski does just that. Fish Change Direction in Cold Weather offers a giddy, open-hearted look at the 1998 Ice Storm we might all wish we’d lived through." - Trevor Cole, author of Practical Jean "A little boy looks out the window of his Montreal apartment and prays for a natural disaster to prevent his parents from divorcing. That is how this magical novel begins. During the course of Pierre Szalowski’s ice storm, the lives of the tenants in a building are turned on their heads. They invite strangers into their homes, discover incredible secrets, solve scientific enigmas and fall in love. Leave it to Pierre Szalowski to use a natural disaster as a setting to examine what it means to be openhearted, happy and Quebecoise. It is an exquisite snow globe of a book. Pick it up, turn it upside down and watch the storm begin to fall on Montreal all over again." - Heather O'Neill, author of Lullabies for Little Criminals

Les fleurs vénéneuses du mâle by Laurette Autouard Summary

Dans l’appartement de la victime Marion Varten, la commissaire Félicie Hoareau, une joviale quadragénaire réunionnaise, s’affaire aux côtés de la police scientifique. Dès le premier constat, les circonstances de la mort ont semblé suspectes. Dans la minuscule chambre sans fenêtre où le corps est allongé, l’air est irrespirable. Un diffuseur d’huile essentielle est posé à même le sol. Rien ne semble avoir été dérangé dans l’appartement. Pas de trace de médicament ou de drogue qui pourrait laisser penser à un suicide ou à une overdose. Pas d’ordinateur, ni de téléphone portable. Sur la table de la cuisine trône une corbeille de roses rouges insolites et un étrange extrait d’un poème de Baudelaire. De Marseille à Grasse une enquête haletante au dénouement surprenant... À PROPOS DE L'AUTEURE Comme dans son précédent roman « La femme aux mains jointes » (Privat), Laurette Autouard signe un nouveau thriller psychologique et, de meurtres en meurtres, fait voyager ses lecteurs de l’art au polar avec beaucoup de simplicité, d’humanité et une verve colorée.

Le héros blessé au bras by Georges-Olivier Châteaureynaud Summary

Quinze nouvelles composent ce recueil, qui mettent en scène une foule de personnages et semblent, pourtant, avoir un même et unique héros, le Temps : le temps qui passe, le temps piégé, le temps truqué, le temps aboli. L'univers de G.-O. Châteaureynaud évoque la peinture de Giorgio de Chirico et, comme elle, rend visible à nos yeux étonnés ce qui demeure ordinairement caché derrière les apparences. Les enfants ont la part belle dans ces belles histoires : Hugo, Jean-Jacques Renard, "Petit Chose" à leur manière, et le bouleversant bambin du "Verger". Le réalisme et le fantastique engendrent alors la poésie.

Le reflet de la salamandre by Philippe Boizart Summary

Le cadavre mutilé d'une jeune femme est retrouvé dans un terrain vague. Paris, 5ème arrondissement. Une jeune femme est retrouvée atrocement mutilée dans un terrain vague le long de l’autoroute. Les sévices qui lui ont été infligés n’augurent rien de bon quant à la folie des meurtriers. Pour Camille, dont la vie privée va se retrouver intimement liée à cette affaire, et Mathias, enquêteurs au 36, Quai des Orfèvres, c’est le début d’une course effrénée contre la mort qui va éprouver toutes leurs convictions. Tour à tour chasseurs ou gibiers, les deux officiers accompagnés de Sophie, leur amie médecin légiste, vont vivre une traque infernale et bouleversante. Découvrez l'enquête de Camille, Mathias et Sophie, et vivez à leurs côtés cette traque infernale et bouleversante. EXTRAIT C’était un Zippo, de couleur argent, orné d’une gravure noire représentant une salamandre entourée à gauche et à droite du chiffre 1. Ce dessin était l’exacte réplique du tatouage sur son épaule droite. Après une fouille méticuleuse de l’habitacle, il dut se faire à l’idée qu’il n’était pas là et, persuadé de l’avoir utilisé dans la soirée, il savait qu’il ne serait pas chez lui. Une vieille pochette d’allumettes qui traînait lui permit néanmoins d’allumer sa cigarette. Il inspira profondément la première bouffée jusqu’à emplir ses poumons tout en s’adossant sur son siège, les yeux fermés. Il adorait la sensation provoquée par la première cigarette de la journée. S’il devait un jour, arrêter de fumer, ne pas allumer cette cigarette serait un grand défi. À PROPOS DE L'AUTEUR Philippe Boizart est né en février 1973. Il est Ingénieur Territorial en voirie et espaces publics au sein de Lille Métropole Communauté Urbaine. Passionné de littérature et de poésie voici son premier thriller. Il partage son affection pour les livres avec celle qu’il cultive pour le 7ème Art depuis l’enfance.

L'Art de faire le ménage by Dominique Loreau Summary

Un lieu propre embellit le coeur et l'esprit. Pourquoi faire le ménage ? La plupart d'entre nous répondront probablement qu'il faut le faire, c'est tout. Tout comme manger, dormir ou se laver. Mais c'est bien plus. Outre les effets bénéfiques qu'un lieu propre et rangé peut apporter sur plan le physique et moral, c'est aussi nettoyer son coeur et son esprit. Il peut devenir un plaisir, un art, un exercice spirituel : il suffit pour cela de retrouver l'envie de vivre pour soi, chez soi, et de renouer avec des valeurs universelles. Pour avoir une meilleure image de soi; Pour faire corps avec son intérieur; Pour avoir un meilleur contrôle sur les circonstances; Mener une vie équilibrée; Pour garder le moral?

Reconnaître le burn-out by Agnès Bonnet-Suard Summary

Comprendre l’épuisement émotionnel avant qu’il soit trop tard La sensation d’être face à un mur en pensant à tout ce qu’il faut accomplir... Des ruminations, une fatigue chronique, le sentiment de ne pas être à la hauteur malgré des efforts considérables au travail, mais aussi à la maison, avec les enfants... Le corps qui ne veut plus suivre. Le burn-out, le bore-out (épuisement lié à l’ennui) et le brown-out (épuisement lié à la perte de sens) sont les trois visages d’un même sentiment de dissonance. Or, avant d’identifier les symptômes de ces troubles ou d’exprimer ce que l’on ressent, nous cherchons naturellement à réduire l’écart entre ce que nous vivons et ce que nous laissons paraître. Cet effort nous conduit à la perte de sens et d’élan vital. Ce livre permet de comprendre le processus dans lequel nous sommes pris et d’en sortir. Il donne enfin des clés pour recontacter nos besoins – psychiques, mentaux et émotionnels – et retrouver des forces et du sens. Agnès Bonnet-Suard est psychologue clinicienne depuis plus de vingt ans, professeure des universités et la co-fondatrice du cabinet de conseil Therasens. Elle anime des conférences dans le domaine de la qualité de vie au travail, de la prévention des risques psycho-sociaux et du développement personnel, et propose des accompagnements personnalisés pour prévenir l’épuisement professionnel.
