Le coeur converti by Stefan Hertmans Summary

"Je voudrais pouvoir la mettre en garde contre ce qui va lui arriver. Passe ton chemin, jeune fille, choisis un autre homme, échappe à ce sort, fuis ce qui t’attire" Par amour pour David, la belle Vigdis renonce à ses privilèges de jeune noble chrétienne et se convertit au judaïsme. Mais en ce début de XIe siècle en France, leur union fait scandale. Pour vivre librement, tous deux s’enfuient et trouvent refuge dans un village du Sud. Alors qu’ils se croient saufs, les croisés, de plus en plus nombreux sur la route de Jérusalem, sèment mort et destruction dans leur sillage... Inspirée de faits réels, cette histoire d’amour tragique est aussi un grand roman contemporain : celui d’une femme en exil guidée par l’espoir.

Nickel boys by Colson Whitehead,Charles Recoursé Summary

Prix Pulitzer 2020 Dans la Floride ségrégationniste des années 1960, le jeune Elwood Curtis prend très à coeur le message de paix de Martin Luther King. Prêt à intégrer l'université pour y faire de brillantes études, il voit s'évanouir ses rêves d'avenir lorsque, à la suite d'une erreur judiciaire, on l'envoie à la Nickel Academy, une maison de correction qui s'engage à faire des délinquants des « hommes honnêtes et honorables ». Sauf qu'il s'agit en réalité d'un endroit cauchemardesque, où les pensionnaires sont soumis aux pires sévices. Elwood trouve toutefois un allié précieux en la personne de Turner, avec qui il se lie d'amitié. Mais l'idéalisme de l'un et le scepticisme de l'autre auront des conséquences déchirantes. Couronné en 2017 par le prix Pulitzer pour Underdground Railroad puis en 2020 pour Nickel Boys, Colson Whitehead s'inscrit dans la lignée des rares romanciers distingués à deux reprises par cette prestigieuse récompense, à l'instar de William Faulkner et John Updike. S'inspirant de faits réels, il continue d'explorer l'inguérissable blessure raciale de l'Amérique et donne avec ce nouveau roman saisissant une sépulture littéraire à des centaines d'innocents, victimes de l'injustice du fait de leur couleur de peau. « Le roman de Colson Whitehead est une lecture nécessaire. Il détaille la façon dont les lois raciales ont anéanti des existences et montre que leurs effets se font sentir encore aujourd'hui. » Barack Obama

Pique-nique à Hanging Rock by Joan Lindsay Summary

14 février 1900, Australie. L’été touche à sa fin. Les jeunes pensionnaires de Mrs Appleyard attendent depuis des mois ce pique-nique annuel, non loin de Hanging Rock. Revêtues de leurs mousselines légères, elles partent dans une voiture tirée par cinq chevaux bais magnifiques. Après le déjeuner, les demoiselles s’assoupissent à l’ombre des arbres. Mais quatre d’entre elles, plus âgées, obtiennent la permission de faire une promenade. Enivrées par cet avant-goût de liberté, elles franchissent un premier ruisseau... puis disparaissent dans les hauteurs. Quand, tard dans la nuit, la voiture regagne le pensionnat, trois jeunes filles manquent à l’appel. Publié en 1967, magnifiquement adapté au cinéma par Peter Weir en 1975, Pique-nique à Hanging Rock est un récit envoûtant, mystérieux et inoubliable, considéré comme l’un des plus grands romans de la littérature australienne.

Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid Summary

Le coup de cœur de Reese Wetherspoon ! Un irrésistible page-turner raconté sous la forme d’une interview. La légende de Daisy Jones transporte instantanément les lecteurs dans l’univers du rock n'roll des années 70 et les immerge dans le chaos créatif au coeur du duo artistique le plus magnétique - et compliqué - de cette époque : celui de Daisy Jones et Billy Dunne. Quand la jeune starlette Daisy Jones est associée par son manager à Billy Dunne et son groupe “The Six” sur leur album "Aurora ", personne ne pouvait imaginer l’alchimie musicale qui naîtrait de cette rencontre. C’est le premier pas vers une multitude de grammys et un succès planétaire. Mais la même énergie bouillonnante qui a donné naissance à cet album iconique va déchirer les membres du groupe pour ne laisser dans son sillage que regrets, ressentiment et désirs contrariés. Comme de si nombreux partenariats artistiques, celui qui unit la libre et insaisissable Daisy et le charismatique mais torturé Billy marquera l’histoire. Mais le mystère de ce qui a causé la séparation du groupe mythique demeure... et c’est ce secret qui va être révélé dans ce roman sous forme d’interviews, faisant renaître sous les yeux du lecteur une histoire qu’il n’oubliera jamais ! Taylor Jenkins Reid vit à Los Angeles. Après un début de carrière dans l’industrie du cinéma, elle s’est tournée vers l’écriture. Elle est aujourd’hui l’auteure de cinq romans qui ont connu un grand succès aux États-Unis et à l’international. Daisy Jones and The Six, son sixième roman, fait déjà l’objet d’une adaptation audiovisuelle dans 200 pays.

L'extraordinaire histoire du petit oiseau qui a sauvé une famille Le monde entier est tombé amoureux des photos magnifiques et très originales de Penguin la pie et de sa famille.Mais il y a bien plus encore à raconter sur l’histoire de Penguin que ce que l’on peut voir avec les yeux. C’est une véritable histoire d’espoir et de courage. Tout commence par un terrible accident, Sam Bloom, la femme de Cameron et la mère de leurs trois petits garçons, fait lors un voyage en Thaïlande une chute presque mortelle qui la laisse entièrement paralysée. Peu après son retour en Australie, une petite pie, Penguin, tombe de son nid non loin de leur maison.

Cette petite pie nous rappelle que, même si l’on se sent fragile, perdu, blessé, être aimé et aimer en retour fait de nous des êtres entiers. Penguin la Pie a figuré sur la liste de meilleures ventes aux États-Unis, en Grande-Bretagne, en Australie et en Allemagne. L’histoire a séduit Hollywood et une adaptation au cinéma est en cours de réalisation avec Naomi Watts comme réalisateur et comme actrice principale. Sortie mondiale prévue fin 2018.

The Dig by John Preston Summary

A brilliantly realised account of the most famous archeological dig in British history, now a major motion picture starring Ralph Fiennes, Carey Mulligan and Lily James. 'Exquisitely original' Ian MacEwan 'An enthralling story of love and loss' Robert Harris In the long hot summer of 1939 Britain is preparing for war. But on a riverside farm in Suffolk there is excitement of another kind: Mrs Petty, the widowed farmer, has had her hunch proved correct that the strange mounds on her land hold buried treasure. As the dig proceeds against a background of mounting national anxiety, it becomes clear that this is no ordinary find... John Preston's recreation of the Sutton Hoo dig - the greatest Anglo-Saxon discovery ever in Britain - brilliantly and comically dramatizes three months of intense activity when locals fought outsiders, professionals thwarted amateurs, and love and rivalry flourished in equal measure. 'A tale of rivalry, loss and thwarted love so absorbing that I read right through lunchtime one day, and it's not often I miss a meal' Nigella Lawson 'A delicate evocation of a vanished era' Sunday Times

The Captured by Scott Zesch Summary

On New Year's Day in 1870, ten-year-old Adolph Korn was kidnapped by an Apache raiding party. Traded to Comaches, he thrived in the rough, nomadic existence, quickly becoming one of the tribe's fiercest warriors. Forcibly returned to his parents after three years, Korn never adjusted to life in white society. He spent his last years in a cave, all but forgotten by his family. That is, until Scott Zesch stumbled over his own great-great-great uncle's grave. Determined to understand how such a "good boy" could have become Indianized so completely, Zesch travels across the west, digging through archives, speaking with Comanche elders, and tracking eight other child captives from the region with hauntingly similar experiences. With a historians rigor and a novelists eye, Zesch's The Captured paints a vivid portrait of life on the Texas frontier, offering a rare account of captivity. "A carefully written, well-researched contribution to Western history -- and to a promising new genre: the anthropology of the stolen." - Kirkus Reviews

A Very English Scandal by John Preston Summary

The bestselling book that inspired the Bafta-winning BBC drama,starring Hugh Grant and Ben Whishaw Corruption. Blackmail. Conspiracy to murder. A Very English Scandal has all the hallmarks of a classic thriller with one difference. It's all true. In the late 1960s Jeremy Thorp, the charismatic leader of the Liberal Party, was at the height of his political career. But homosexuality had only just been legalized, and a former relationship with a younger man named Norman Scott threatened to destroy Thorp's carefully curated facade. Helped by fellow politicians, Thorpe schemed, deceived and embezzled until he saw only one way to silence his ex-lover for good. Meticulously researched and endlessly extraordinary, Thorp's trial captured the moment that British society discovered the truth about its political class - and learned just how far the Establishment will go to protect its own.

Fall by John Preston Summary

THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER A LITERARY HIGHLIGHT FOR 2021 IN THE TIMES, SUNDAY TIMES, GUARDIAN AND OBSERVER 'The best biography yet of the media magnate Robert Maxwell - by turns engrossing, amusing and appalling' Robert Harris, Sunday Times 'Electrifying... the supreme chronicler of modern British scandals' Mail on Sunday From the bestselling author of A Very English Scandal, the jaw-dropping life story of the notorious business tycoon Robert Maxwell. In February 1991, the media mogul and former MP Robert Maxwell made a triumphant entrance into Manhattan harbour aboard his yacht, the Lady Ghislaine, to complete his purchase of the ailing New York Daily News. Crowds lined the quayside to watch his arrival, taxi drivers stopped their cabs to shake his hand and children asked for his autograph. But just ten months later, Maxwell disappeared from the same yacht off the Canary Islands, only to be found dead in the water soon afterward. Maxwell was the embodiment of Britain's post-war boom. Born an Orthodox Jew, he had escaped the Nazi occupation of Czechoslovakia, fought in World War 2, and was decorated for his heroism with the Military Cross. He went on to become a Labour MP and an astonishingly successful businessman, owning a number of newspapers and publishing companies. But on his death, his empire fell apart, as long-hidden debts and unscrupulous dealings came to light. Within a few days, Maxwell was being reviled as the embodiment of greed and corruption. No one had ever fallen so far and so quickly. What went so wrong? How did a war hero and model of society become reduced to a bloated, amoral wreck? In this gripping book, John Preston delivers the definitive account of Maxwell's extraordinary rise and scandalous fall. 'Preston is a natural storyteller' The Times
