The Arab of the Future 4 by Summary

The penultimate installment in the bestselling French graphic memoir series—hailed as “exquisitely illustrated” and “irresistible”—covering the years of Riad Sattouf’s adolescence, from 1987-1992. In the fourth volume of The Arab of the Future, little Riad has grown into a teenager. In the previous books, his childhood was complicated by the pull of his two cultures—French and Syrian—and his parents’ deteriorating relationship. Now his father, Adbel-Razak, has left to take a job in Saudi Arabia, and after making a pilgrimage to Mecca, turns increasingly towards religion. But after following him from place to place and living for years under the harsh conditions of his impoverished village, Riad’s mother Clementine has had enough. Refusing to live in a country where women have no rights, she returns with her children to live in France with her own mother... until Abdel-Razak shows up unexpectedly to drag the family on yet another journey. As the series builds to a climax, we see Riad struggle with problems both universal (bullies at school) and specific (his mother’s sudden illness, the judgment of his religious relatives). And as Abdel-Razak returns again to the same fantastical dreams he pursued in previous books, we see him become more and more unhinged, until ultimately he crosses the line from idealism to fanaticism, leading to a dramatic breaking point. Full of the same gripping storytelling and lush visual style for which Sattouf’s previous works have won numerous awards, The Arab of the Future 4 continues the saga of the Sattouf family and their peripatetic life in France and the Middle East.

Pyongyang by Guy Delisle Summary

The perennial graphic novel about the "Hermit Country" with new cover and introduction by Gore Verbinski Pyongyang: A Journey in North Korea is Guy Delisle's graphic novel that made his career,an international bestseller for over ten years. Delisle became one of the few Westerners to be allowed access to the fortresslike country when he was working in animation for a French company. While living in the nation's capital for two months on a work visa, Delisle observed everything he was allowed to see of the culture and lives of the few North Koreans he encountered, bringing a sardonic and skeptical perspective on a place rife with propaganda. As a guide to the country, Delisle is a non-believer with a keen eye for the humor and tragedy of dictatorial whims, expressed in looming architecture and tiny, omnipresent photos of the President. The absurd vagaries of everyday life become fodder for a frustrated animator’s musings as boredom and censorship sink in. Delisle himself is the ideal foil for North Korean spin, the grumpy outsider who brought a copy of George Orwell’s 1984 with him into the totalitarian nation. Pyongyang is an informative, personal, and accessible look at a dangerous and enigmatic country. Pyongyang has been translated from the French by Helge Dascher. Dascher has been translating graphic novels from French and German to English for over twenty years. A contributor to Drawn & Quarterly since the early days, her translations include acclaimed titles such as the Aya series by Marguerite Abouet and Clément Oubrerie, Hostage by Guy Delisle, and Beautiful Darkness by Fabien Vehlmann and Kerascoët. With a background in art history and history, she also translates books and exhibitions for museums in North America and Europe. She lives in Montreal.

Volume one of the epic, beautifully illustrated graphic history of humankind, based on Yuval Noah Harari's internationally bestselling phenomenon In a world deluged by irrelevant information, clarity is power. How can we see the big picture without getting caught up in an infinity of little details? One way is to step back, to look at the really big picture: the entire history of the human species.

The Arab of the Future 2 by Riad Sattouf Summary

The highly anticipated continuation of Riad Sattouf’s internationally acclaimed, #1 French bestseller, which was hailed by The New York Times as “a disquieting yet essential read” In The Arab of the Future: Volume 1, cartoonist Riad Sattouf tells of the first years of his childhood as his family shuttles back and forth between France and the Middle East. In Libya and Syria, young Riad is exposed to the dismal reality of a life where food is scarce, children kill dogs for sport, and his cousins, virulently anti-Semitic and convinced he is Jewish because of his blond hair, lurk around every corner waiting to beat him up. In Volume 2, Riad, now settled in his father’s hometown of Homs, gets to go to school, where he dedicates himself to becoming a true Syrian in the country of the dictator Hafez Al-Assad. Told simply yet with devastating effect, Riad’s story takes in the sweep of politics, religion, and poverty, but is steered by acutely observed small moments: the daily sadism of his schoolteacher, the lure of the black market, with its menu of shame and subsistence, and the obsequiousness of his father in the company of those close to the regime. As his family strains to fit in, one chilling, barbaric act drives the Sattoufs to make the most dramatic of changes. Darkly funny and piercingly direct, The Arab of the Future, Volume 2 once again reveals the inner workings of a tormented country and a tormented family, delivered through Riad Sattouf’s dazzlingly original talent.

The Beekeeper of Aleppo by Christy Lefteri Summary

This unforgettable novel puts human faces on the Syrian war with the immigrant story of a beekeeper, his wife, and the triumph of spirit when the world becomes unrecognizable. “A beautifully crafted novel of international significance that has the capacity to have us open our eyes and see.”—Heather Morris, author of The Tattooist of Auschwitz WINNER OF THE ASPEN WORDS LITERARY PRIZE • FINALIST FOR THE DAYTON LITERARY PEACE PRIZE • NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY REAL SIMPLE Nuri is a beekeeper and Afra, his wife, is an artist. Mornings, Nuri rises early to hear the call to prayer before driving to his hives in the countryside. On weekends, Afra sells her colorful landscape paintings at the open-air market. They live a simple life, rich in family and friends, in the hills of the beautiful Syrian city of Aleppo—until the unthinkable happens. When all they love is destroyed by war, Nuri knows they have no choice except to leave their home. But escaping Syria will be no easy task: Afra has lost her sight, leaving Nuri to navigate her grief as well as a perilous journey through Turkey and Greece toward an uncertain future in Britain. Nuri is sustained only by the knowledge that waiting for them is his cousin Mustafa, who has started an apiary in Yorkshire and is teaching fellow refugees beekeeping. As Nuri and Afra travel through a broken world, they must confront not only the pain of their own unspeakable loss but dangers that would overwhelm even the bravest souls. Above all, they must make the difficult journey back to each other, a path once so familiar yet rendered foreign by the heartache of displacement. Moving, intimate, and beautifully written, The Beekeeper of Aleppo is a book for our times: a novel that at once reminds us that the most peaceful and ordinary lives can be utterly upended in unimaginable ways and brings a journey in faraway lands close to home, never to be forgotten. Praise for The Beekeeper of Aleppo “This book dips below the deafening headlines, and tells a true story with subtlety and power.”—Esther Freud, author of Mr. Mac and Me “This compelling tale had me gripped with its compassion, its sensual style, and its onward and lively urge for resolution.”—Daljit Nagra, author of British Museum “This novel speaks to so much that is happening in the world today. It’s intelligent, thoughtful, and relevant, but very importantly it is accessible. I’m recommending this book to everyone I care about.”—Benjamin Zephaniah, author of Refugee Boy

Vernon Subutex 1 by Virginie Despentes Summary

"Virginie Despentes's Vernon Subutex trilogy is the zeitgeistiest thing I ever read. Everything about it is contemporary, right down to the fearless woman author who doesn't think of herself as a feminist and gives an impression at least in interviews of habitually killing rapists . . . [It] has dupes and assholes and racists and the people they hate and a stunning diversity of internal monologues and trans true love. Like the last decade, it searches for a happy ending that isn’t merely personal and can’t find it . . . These novels with their depth and detail kick TV's sorry ass." —Nell Zink, Bustle, "The Best Books Of The 2010s" From the provocative writer and filmmaker Virginie Despentes comes volume one of her acclaimed trilogy of novels, Vernon Subutex—short-listed for the Man Booker International Prize. But who is Vernon Subutex? Vernon Subutex was once the proprietor of Revolver, an infamous music shop in Paris, where his name was legend throughout Paris. By the 2000s, however, with the arrival of the internet and the decline in CD and vinyl sales, his shop is struggling, like so many others. When it closes, Subutex finds himself with nowhere to go and nothing to do. Before long, his savings are gone, and when the mysterious rock star who had been covering his rent suddenly drops dead of a drug overdose, Subutex finds himself launched on an epic saga of couch-surfing, boozing, and coke-snorting before finally winding up homeless. Just as he resigns himself to life as a panhandler, a throwaway comment he once made on Facebook takes the internet by storm. The word is out: Subutex is lugging around a bunch of VHS tapes shot by that same dead rock musician—his last recordings on this earth. Soon a crowd of wild characters, from screen writers to social media groupies, from porn stars to failed musicians to random misfits, are hot on Vernon's trail . . . but Vernon is none the wiser.

Once Upon a Time in France by Fabien Nury Summary

Based on a true story, Once Upon a Time in France follows the life of Joseph Joanovici, a Romanian Jew who immigrated to France in the 1920s and became one of the richest men in Europe as a scrap-metal magnate. For some, he was a villain. For others, a hero. As Germany occupies France, Mr. Joseph thinks his influence can keep his family safe, but he soon finds that the only way to stay one step ahead of the Nazis is to keep his friends close and his enemies closer. Though he plays both sides of the fence as a Nazi collaborator and French resistant, a tangled web of interests forms around him that proves it will take a lot more than money to pay for the survival of his family. An international bestseller with over 1 million copies sold, the French series Once Upon a Time in France, collected here in one omnibus edition, has won the BDGest’Arts Best Scenario Award, BDGest’Arts Album of the Year, and Angoulême International Comics Festival Best Series Award, among many others.

Janelle Monáe’s The ArchAndroid by Alyssa Favreau Summary

In Janelle Monáe's full-length debut, the science fiction concept album The ArchAndroid, the android Cindi Mayweather is on the run from the authorities for the crime of loving a human. Living in 28th century Metropolis, Cindi fights for survival, soon realizing that she is in fact the prophesied ArchAndroid, a robot messiah meant to liberate the masses and lead them toward a wonderland where all can be free. Taking into account the literary merit of Monáe's astounding multimedia body of work, the political relevance of the science fictional themes and aesthetics she explores, and her role as an Atlanta-based pop cultural juggernaut, this book explores the lavish world building of Cindi's story, and the many literary, cinematic, and musical influences brought together to create it. Throughout, a history of Monáe's move to Atlanta, her signing with Bad Boy Records, and the trials of developing a full-length concept album in an industry devoted to the production of marketable singles can be found, charting the artist's own rise to power. The stories of Monáe and of Cindi are inextricably entwined, each making the other more compelling, fantastical, and deeply felt.

The Arab Revolution by Jean-Pierre Filiu Summary

When Mohammad Bouazizi sets himself on fire on December 17, 2010, he started a series of extraordinary events that spread across the Middle East with stunning rapidity. In less than a month, President Ben Ali fled Tunisia, ending a twenty-three year regime. Shortly thereafter, on 11 February 2011, President Mubarak of Egypt stepped down after nearly thirty years in power. In The Arab Revolution, Jean-Pierre Filiu offers a concise but sweeping account of the earth-shattering revolts that began in Tunis and continue today throughout the Middle East. Stressing the deep historical roots of the events, Filiu organizes the book around ten lessons that illuminate both the uprisings in particular and the region in general. He shows, for instance, that these movements didn't erupt out of thin air--Arabs have been fighting for their rights for more than a generation. The author sheds light on the role of youth--whose anger is power, he notes, and who embrace the message "tomorrow is yours, if you fight for it"--as well as the important role that social networks played in Tunisia and Egypt. Filiu also argues that in the aftermath, jihadists are in a difficult position, because the essentially peaceful grassroots protests in Tunisia and Egypt have undercut their message of violence and indeed have called into question their relevance. The book also reveals that, despite being somewhat overshadowed by the Arab uprising, Palestine remains the central concern throughout the Middle East. By shining a light on these lessons rather than providing a strictly chronological account, Filiu provides a far richer and deeper portrait of the revolutionary movements sweeping the region--as well as an insightful look at life in the Middle East today.

The Great Outdoors by Catherine Meurisse Summary

"Girls, living in the country will be your chance," her parents tell her. And so Catherine Meurisse spends her childhood outdoors. Construction all around her: an old farmhouse renovated into a home, trees planted, a garden created, dreams cultivated. They dig, they graft, they plant a rosebush "adopted" from Montaigne, a fig tree from Rabelais. They observe the tumult of the outside world: new developments in industrial agriculture, the citification of rural France... With her characteristic humor, Catherine Meurisse has composed a witty poem dedicated to the countryside where her vocation as an artist first took form. The Great Outdoors, like Lightness, her previous album, is a testament to her conviction that nature and art —everything that grows, everything that lives against all opposition— always offer us a chance.

Body Music by Julie Maroh Summary

Julie Maroh's first book, Blue Is the Warmest Color, was a graphic novel phenomenon; it was a New York Times bestseller and the controversial film adaptation by French director Abdellatif Kechiche won the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival in 2013. Maroh's latest book, Body Music, marks her return to the kind of soft, warm palette and impressionistic sensibility that made her debut book so sensational. Set in the languid, European-like neighborhoods of Montreal, Body Music is a beautiful and moving meditation on love and desire as expressed in their many different forms?between women, men, and gender non-conformists alike, all varying in age and race. In twenty separate vignettes, Maroh explores the drama inherent in relationships at different stages: the electricity of initial attraction, the elation of falling in love, the trauma of breaking up, the sweet comfort of a long-standing romance. Anyone who's ever been in a relationship will see themselves in these intimate stories tinged with raw emotion. Body Music is an exhilarating and passionate graphic novel about what it means to fall in love, and what it means to be alive. Julie Maroh studied comic art at the Institute Saint-Luc in Brussels and lithography and engraving at the Royal Academy of Arts in Brussels. She started writing her bestselling book Blue Is the Warmest Color at the age of nineteen.

La Question de Palestine - Tome 1 - L'invention de la Terre sainte (1799-1922) by Henry Laurens Summary

En 1799, l'armée de Napoléon Bonaparte entre en Palestine. C'est le débat d'une redécouverte de la Terre sainte, qui dés lors s'ouvre progressivement aux Occidentaux. Les Puissances vont aller jusqu'à se faire la guerre pour établir leur protectorat sur les Lieux saints, les archéologues font des rouilles pour démontrer la véracité du texte biblique aria à mal par la critique historique, La petite Palestine devient ainsi un enjeu de luttes politiques et de confits scientifiques. Elle-même se transforme considérablement durant un long XIXe siècle marqué par les reformes modernisatrices de l'Empire ottoman. Société levantine, elle découvre au début du XXe siècle les premières formes de nationalisme. De l'opposition entre science et religion naît historicisation du texte sacre qui fait du peuple juif un acteur de ]'Histoire. A partir de l880, au moment cor le libéralisme européen s'épuise, la montée des différentes formes d'antisémitisme génère l'expression d'un nationalisme dont la forme la plus radicale sera le sionisme. Ce livre rapporte comment, grâce aux " israélites " français, la pre mière colonisation juive a été possible. Dès les années 1900, le sionisme commence à se heurter au nationalisme arabe palestinien. Durant la Grande Guerre, Français et Anglais mènent une politique hésitante et contradictoire destinée à leur assurer le soutien des mondes ,juif et musulman dont la force véritable est surestimée. De 1919 à 1922, les Britanniques obtiennent bien un. mandat sur la Palestine, mais, au moment où la charte dudit mandat est: ratifie par la Société des nations (juillet I922), la contradiction des engagement pris est patente en dépit d'une savante construction politique. De 1799 à 1922, la vieille Terre sainte des religions devient la Terre sainte ces nations. Plus le monde est censé se désenchanter, plus la sacralité de cette région se renforce pour devenir la cause de nouvelles violences.

Une si douce accoutumance by Frédéric Chauvaud Summary

Aujourd'hui la bande dessinée est partout au point que l'on ne prête guère attention à la singularité de sa présence. À la une des magazines, dans les manuels scolaires, sur les murs des villes, l'image bédéiste a colonisé l'imaginaire des sociétés contemporaines. Qu'ils soient férus de littérature graphique, simples amateurs, indifférents, voire hostiles, les contemporains, face à cette débauche d'images, ne peuvent ignorer des personnages devenus familiers. Lecteurs et lectrices, de tous les âges et de toutes conditions, peuvent avec ravissement se plonger dans les univers de la BD, découvrir des mondes improbables, suivre des reportages, prendre la mesure des connaissances scientifiques. Ainsi se déploie une douce accoutumance à toutes les formes de narrations graphiques. Revues, festivals, rencontres contribuent à maintenir ou à accroître la dépendance aux bulles et aux cases. Mais, miroir déformant, la bande dessinée offre aussi un panorama des addictions à l'alcool, au tabac ou au sexe.

Lentement vers la Lumière by Jacques Henri Prévost Summary

Peut-on, d'homme de matière, devenir Homme de Lumière ? L’auteur tente de répondre en présentant les visions de divers mouvements spiritualistes qui ont préparé l’ésotérisme occidental dans différents temps et lieux du Monde. Il y a bien des façons de chercher la clarté et d'essayer de répondre aux multiples questions posées par l'origine, la nature, et le sens de la vie humaine. Beaucoup d'hommes y ont consacré leurs vies, leurs intelligences et leurs imaginations. Leurs visions ne sont pas antagonistes car elles ouvrent des fenêtres différentes sur le même et unique profond mystère des origines. Cristallisée dans la matière, l’âme tente depuis des millénaires de s’ouvrir un chemin vers la lumière, mais les siècles passent et l’opacité de l’incarnation dans la matière ne cède que bien lentement. Néanmoins, la conscience progresse, et siècle après siècle, vie après vie, l’alchimie spirituelle amollit les résistances de l’égo et dissipe progressivement toutes les illusions du Monde. Lentement, les certitudes s’effritent, la lumière perce les opacités, donnant progressivement un sens à l’existence. C’est ce lent cheminement depuis les sources antiques de notre civilisation occidentale jusqu’à nos jours, à travers les siècles, les civilisations, les philosophies et les religions diverses que cet ouvrage se propose de présenter dans les études suivantes. Les appels de la Lumière. Réminiscence et réincarnation selon Platon. Les dieux grecs. Les Ennéades de Plotin. Les enseignements d’Hermès Trismégiste. Les antiques religions à Mystères. La religion des Romains. La Divine Comédie de Dante. L’origine des Rose-Croix. Le mythe de la Quête du Graal. De la Gnose aux Cathares. La Foi des Cathares. De Giodano Bruno à l’Univers vivant. Robert Fludd et la Rose-Croix.

LE SOUFISME REGARDE L'OCCIDENT by Philippe Moulinet Summary

Le soufisme est une science qui initie l'homme à la connaissance de soi en lui montrant la voie du retour vers son Dieu. L'auteur a saisi en profondeur la pensée philosophique d'occident ainsi que la vision des grands spirituels de l'Islam à travers l'œuvre d'Henry Corbin notamment dont il fait fructifier les apports par une méditation vivante, enracinée dans l'expérience directe de la voie soufie. Le premier volume montre tout l'art du maître spirituel qui utilise les situations quotidiennes pour ôter au disciple la prétention à se faire une image " suffisante " de lui-même. Le deuxième tome nous ouvre un autre monde, celui de l'Imagination divine où l'âme humaine configure le scénario de son existence en vertu de la loi de correspondance qui unit nos aspirations intimes à ce qui nous vient de l'extérieur. Enfin le troisième volume propose des remèdes aux maux de la civilisation occidentale.

L'éveil politique de la société algérienne by Abla Gheziel Summary

L'auteure propose de suivre l'évolution et les facteurs qui ont contribué à l'éveil populaire des masses musulmanes durant la période qui s'étend de 1830 à 1936. Elle développe la théorie selon laquelle soumission, assimilation, révoltes ont aidé à l'éclosion du nationalisme, qui fut le résultat d'un cheminement complexe, compte tenu des différents facteurs tels le panislamisme, les retombées de la Première Guerre mondiale et l'engagement des indigènes dans ce conflit. Après les années 1920, avec l'apparition de formations politiques, la prise de conscience des masses musulmanes va passer d'une pensée particulariste à une pensée collective nationale.

Cl. J. ROUGET DE LISLE by Christian Mas Summary

Entre littérature et musique, l'existence de Rouget de Lisle se déroule et se construit dans l'unité d'une pensée et d'un engagement humain, social et politique. Rouget de Lisle, tout à la fois acteur sensible et témoin privilégié de ces années 1789 et 1830, participera à cette vision particulièrement neuve qui désire inscrire le cheminement de l'homme dans une perspective de générosité, de fraternité, de bonheur et d'épanouissement. Une œuvre musicale, une réflexion morale et politique, une écriture littéraire, nous interpellent et nous entraînent avec ferveur.
