The Secret of Chimneys by Agatha Christie Summary

The Secret of Chimneys Agatha Christie - The Secret of Chimneys is a work of detective fiction by British writer Agatha Christie, first published in the UK by The Bodley Head in June 1925 and in the US by Dodd, Mead and Company later in the same year. It introduces the characters of Superintendent Battle and Lady Eileen "Bundle" Brent. Agatha Christies The Secret of Chimneys, starring her occasional sleuths Superintendent Battle and Lady Eileen Bundle Brent, is a murder mystery-treasure hunt crossover, considered to be one of her best early novels. The plot should be delightful to traditionalists: there are a bunch of people staying at a mansion when one of the guests is murdered! (Apparently, theres a chance it might also be a bit racist, so just a heads up on that front.) It also features the fun-sounding fake-country name Herzoslovakia, which I think is one of the better sounding fake country names in fiction.

The World According to Garp by John Irving Summary

An international bestseller since its publication in 1978, The World According to Garp established John Irving as one of the most imaginative writers of his generation. This is the life of T. S. Garp, the bastard son of Jenny Fields—a feminist leader ahead of her times. This is the life and death of a famous mother and her almost-famous son; theirs is a world of sexual extremes—even of sexual assassinations. It is a novel rich with “lunacy and sorrow”; yet the dark, violent events of the story do not undermine a comedy both ribald and robust. In more than thirty languages, in more than forty countries—with more than ten million copies in print—this novel provides almost cheerful, even hilarious evidence of its famous last line: “In the world according to Garp, we are all terminal cases.”

The Best Medicine Is You by Frederic Saldmann Summary

The #1 international bestseller In his appointments with patients, Dr. Saldmann noticed that illness was like a third person in the doctor-patient relationship. Patients expected him to prescribe medication to rid them of their illness or treat their symptoms, but didn't expect to have to change their behaviour. Medication alone, patients assumed, would do the work of healing. The Best Medicine Is You shows how small, basic changes—from eating chocolate in the morning to sleeping well at night—can improve your health, protect against disease, and help you lead a happier life. Your health is in your hands.

His mother, April, is haunted by her own demons, a secret trauma she has carried for years. Between them is Aiden McCall, loyal to both but unable to hold them together. Connected by bonds of circumstance and duty, friendship and love, these three lives are blown apart when Aiden and Thad witness the accidental death of their drug dealer and a riot of dope and cash drops in their laps. On a meth-fueled journey to nowhere, they will either find the grit to overcome the darkness or be consumed by it.

Power of Gentleness by Anne Dufourmantelle Summary

Gentleness is an enigma. Taken up in a double movement of welcoming and giving, it appears on the threshold of passages signed off by birth and death. Because it has its degrees of intensity, because it is a symbolic force, and because it has a transformative ability over things and beings, it is a power. The simplicity of gentleness is misleading. It is an active passivity that may become an extraordinary force of symbolic resistance and, as such, become central to both ethics and politics. Gentleness is a force of secret life-giving transformation linked to what the ancients called potentiality. In our day, gentleness is sold to us under its related form of diluted mawkishness. By infantilizing it our era denies it. This is how we try to overcome the high demands of its subtlety—no longer by fighting it, but by enfeebling it. Language itself is therefore perverted: what our society intends to give the human beings that it crushes “gently,” it does in the name of the highest values: happiness, truth, security. From listening to those who come to me and confide their despair, I have heard it expressed in every lived experience. I have felt its force of resistance and its intangible magic. In mediating its relation to the world, it appears that its intelligence carries life, saves and amplifies it.

Cold Intimacies by Eva Illouz Summary

It is commonly assumed that capitalism has created an a-emotional world dominated by bureaucratic rationality; that economic behavior conflicts with intimate, authentic relationships; that the public and private spheres are irremediably opposed to each other; and that true love is opposed to calculation and self-interest. Eva Illouz rejects these conventional ideas and argues that the culture of capitalism has fostered an intensely emotional culture in the workplace, in the family, and in our own relationship to ourselves. She argues that economic relations have become deeply emotional, while close, intimate relationships have become increasingly defined by economic and political models of bargaining, exchange, and equity. This dual process by which emotional and economic relationships come to define and shape each other is called emotional capitalism. Illouz finds evidence of this process of emotional capitalism in various social sites: self-help literature, women's magazines, talk shows, support groups, and the Internet dating sites. How did this happen? What are the social consequences of the current preoccupation with emotions? How did the public sphere become saturated with the exposure of private life? Why does suffering occupy a central place in contemporary identity? How has emotional capitalism transformed our romantic choices and experiences? Building on and revising the intellectual legacy of critical theory, this book addresses these questions and offers a new interpretation of the reasons why the public and the private, the economic and the emotional spheres have become inextricably intertwined.

Secret Path by Gord Downie Summary

Secret Path is a graphic novel by musician Gord Downie and illustrator Jeff Lemire that tells the story of Chanie “Charlie” Wenjack, a twelve-year-old boy who died in flight from the Cecilia Jeffrey Indian Residential School fifty years ago. Chanie, misnamed Charlie by his teachers, was a young boy who died on October 22, 1966, walking the railroad tracks, trying to escape from the Cecilia Jeffrey Indian Residential School to return home. Chanie’s home was 400 miles away. He didn’t know that. He didn’t know where it was, nor how to find it, but, like so many kids—more than anyone will be able to imagine—he tried. Chanie’s story is Canada’s story. We are not the country we thought we were. History will be re-written. We are all accountable. Secret Path acknowledges a dark part of Canada’s history—the long suppressed mistreatment of Indigenous children and families by the residential school system—with the hope of starting our country on a road to reconciliation. Every year as we remember Chanie Wenjack, the hope for Secret Path is that it educates all Canadians young and old on this omitted part of our history, urging our entire nation to play an active role in the preservation of Indigenous lives and culture in Canada. The next hundred years are going to be painful as we come to know Chanie Wenjack and thousands like him—as we find out about ourselves, about all of us—but only when we do can we truly call ourselves, “Canada.” Proceeds from Secret Path will be donated to The Gord Downie Secret Path Fund for Truth and Reconciliation via The National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation (NCTR) at The University of Manitoba.

Le Secret du docteur Barry by Sylvie Ouellette Summary

James Miranda Barry fut médecin militaire, chirurgien avant-gardiste, inspecteur général des hôpitaux de Sa Majesté et... l'un des plus grands imposteurs de tous les temps. Au moment de sa mort en 1865, au terme d'une carrière de plus de quarante ans au sein de l'armée britannique, James Miranda Barry n'a pas eu droit aux honneurs dus à son rang. Les autorités militaires ont plutôt jugé bon de l'enterrer à la sauvette, dans un coin reculé d'un cimetière quelconque. Car le scandale qui éclata à sa mort était d'une telle ampleur, qu'il devint la principale raison pour laquelle Barry passerait à l'histoire, reléguant dans l'ombre presque tout ce que le médecin avait mis tant d'efforts et d'années à accomplir. Dans chacune des colonies où on l'avait posté, James Barry avait fait tout en son pouvoir pour améliorer les conditions de vie et les soins de ses patients. Il avait forgé sa réputation sur une pratique nouvelle et moderne de la médecine, par sa spécialisation dans les domaines de la chirurgie, des maladies tropicales, de l'obstétrique, du traitement de la lèpre et des maladies vénériennes. Sur trois continents, Barry a imposé des nouvelles conditions sanitaires, des méthodes révolutionnaires de quarantaine, des diètes alimentaires, ainsi que des traitements efficaces contre les plus terribles maladies connues à l'époque. Sans contredit, les réformes de James Barry ont sauvé des milliers de vies à travers le monde. Mais pourquoi a-t-on profané ainsi la mémoire d'un brillant médecin, dont les accomplissements n'avaient d'égal que la controverse dont Barry aura été l'auteur presque tout au long de sa vie? Sylvie Ouellette retrace ici la vie et la carrière d'un être humain hors de l'ordinaire, qui n'était absolument pas ce que ses contemporains auraient pu croire.

Le Secret du Repos Spirituel by Zacharias Tanee Fomum Summary

Il m’a fallu presque cinq ans pour écrire ce livre. Lorsque j’ai pour la première fois commencé à y réfléchir et à prier pour cela, l’un des sujets de prière était : “Seigneur, accorde que le manuscrit soit achevé d’ici septembre 1986”. Je rédigeai alors une partie de ce livre à l’époque, mais je m’étais rendu compte que si je continuais à écrire, je présenterais de belles théories qui ne se vérifiaient pas toutes dans ma vie. Je décidai alors d’attendre. Je repris la rédaction du livre en 1988, et je fis du progrès. Mais l’honnêteté me contraignit d’arrêter; car je devais écrire uniquement ce qui, dans mon expérience, se vérifiait dans ma vie. Le Seigneur a été très bon envers moi au cours des trois dernières années. Il m’a fait connaître le repos spirituel dans plusieurs domaines, y inclus notre ministère et ma promotion au rang de Professeur à l’Université. Il y a un mois, j’ai senti que je pouvais écrire le livre et que ma vie n’en contredirait pas le contenu. C’était comme si un grand fardeau se saisissait de moi pour la rédaction de ce livre. Plusieurs croyants se sont mis à prier incessamment pour moi pendant que j’écrivais le livre. Je n’étais pas tout à fait prêt à digérer certaines des choses que j’avais découvertes ces dernières semaines, choses relatives au Corps de Christ et à la nécessité d’être en paix avec chaque croyant. Cependant, Dieu m’a tenu par la main. Mes yeux, ayant été ouverts, j’ai entrepris les restitutions nécessaires. Ce matin, je suis allé chercher un frère avec qui nous avions eu un problème pendant longtemps. Je lui ai demandé pardon, il m’a pardonné, et nous avons prié ensemble. Il a demandé pardon à Dieu pour son propre tort. Je suis allé vers un deuxième frère, mais il était absent. Il y a un troisième avec qui je chercherai à être réconcilié cette semaine. Je ne puis recrucifier le Seigneur en omettant d’ôter chaque barrière que je peux ôter entre moi et quiconque confesse que Jésus est Seigneur. Je crois fermement que ceci n’est qu’un début, et que le Saint-Esprit me conduira encore plus de l’avant jusqu’à ce que je sois capable de dire sans me tromper que j’ai fait tout ce qui dépendait de moi pour être en paix avec tous ceux qui confessent le nom du Seigneur. C’est là un aspect du repos spirituel. D’autres aspects sont traités dans ce livre. Pendant que tu lis ce livre, ma prière pour toi est que tu sois ouvert au Saint-Esprit et que tu Lui obéisses à n’importe quel prix, quelque soit l’endroit où Il pourrait te conduire. Je te confie au Seigneur, qui a dit : “Je vous laisse la paix, je vous donne ma paix. Je ne vous la donne pas comme le monde la donne. Que votre coeur ne se trouble point, et ne s’alarme point” (Jean 14:27). Puisses-tu connaître Sa paix pendant que tu lis et connaître aussi Sa paix pendant que tu obéis. C’est cela aussi le repos spirituel.

Death on the Nile by Agatha Christie Summary

Soon to be a major motion picture sequel to Murder on the Orient Express with a screenplay by Michael Green, directed by and starring Kenneth Branagh alongside Gal Gadot and Armie Hammer—coming October 23, 2020! Beloved detective Hercule Poirot embarks on a journey to Egypt in one of Agatha Christie’s most famous mysteries. The tranquility of a luxury cruise along the Nile was shattered by the discovery that Linnet Ridgeway had been shot through the head. She was young, stylish, and beautiful. A girl who had everything . . . until she lost her life. Hercule Poirot recalled an earlier outburst by a fellow passenger: “I’d like to put my dear little pistol against her head and just press the trigger.” Yet under the searing heat of the Egyptian sun, nothing is ever quite what it seems. A sweeping mystery of love, jealousy, and betrayal, Death on the Nile is one of Christie’s most legendary and timeless works. “Death on the Nile is perfect.” —The Guardian “One of her best. . . . First rate entertainment.” —Kirkus Reviews
