Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer Summary

"Terrifying... Eloquent... A heart-rending drama of human yearning." --New York Times In April 1992 a young man from a well-to-do family hitchhiked to Alaska and walked alone into the wilderness north of Mt. McKinley. He had given $25,000 in savings to charity, abandoned his car and most of his possessions, burned all the cash in his wallet, and invented a new life for himself. Four months later, his decomposed body was found by a moose hunter. How Christopher Johnson McCandless came to die is the unforgettable story of Into the Wild. Immediately after graduating from college in 1991, McCandless had roamed through the West and Southwest on a vision quest like those made by his heroes Jack London and John Muir. In the Mojave Desert he abandoned his car, stripped it of its license plates, and burned all of his cash. He would give himself a new name, Alexander Supertramp, and, unencumbered by money and belongings, he would be free to wallow in the raw, unfiltered experiences that nature presented. Craving a blank spot on the map, McCandless simply threw the maps away. Leaving behind his desperate parents and sister, he vanished into the wild. Jon Krakauer constructs a clarifying prism through which he reassembles the disquieting facts of McCandless's short life. Admitting an interst that borders on obsession, he searches for the clues to the dries and desires that propelled McCandless. Digging deeply, he takes an inherently compelling mystery and unravels the larger riddles it holds: the profound pull of the American wilderness on our imagination; the allure of high-risk activities to young men of a certain cast of mind; the complex, charged bond between fathers and sons. When McCandless's innocent mistakes turn out to be irreversible and fatal, he becomes the stuff of tabloid headlines and is dismissed for his naiveté, pretensions, and hubris. He is said to have had a death wish but wanting to die is a very different thing from being compelled to look over the edge. Krakauer brings McCandless's uncompromising pilgrimage out of the shadows, and the peril, adversity, and renunciation sought by this enigmatic young man are illuminated with a rare understanding--and not an ounce of sentimentality. Mesmerizing, heartbreaking, Into the Wild is a tour de force. The power and luminosity of Jon Krakauer's stoytelling blaze through every page.

The Wild Truth by Carine McCandless Summary

A New York Times Bestseller "The Wild Truth is an important book on two fronts: It sets the record straight about a story that has touched thousands of readers, and it opens up a conversation about hideous domestic violence hidden behind a mask of prosperity and propriety."– The spellbinding story of Chris McCandless, who gave away his savings, hitchhiked to Alaska, walked into the wilderness alone, and starved to death in 1992, fascinated not just New York Times bestselling author Jon Krakauer, but also the rest of the nation. Krakauer's book,Into the Wild, became an international bestseller, translated into thirty-one languages, and Sean Penn's inspirational film by the same name further skyrocketed Chris McCandless to global fame. But the real story of Chris’s life and his journey has not yet been told - until now. The missing pieces are finally revealed in The Wild Truth, written by Carine McCandless, Chris's beloved and trusted sister. Featured in both the book and film, Carine has wrestled for more than twenty years with the legacy of her brother's journey to self-discovery, and now tells her own story while filling in the blanks of his. Carine was Chris's best friend, the person with whom he had the closest bond, and who witnessed firsthand the dysfunctional and violent family dynamic that made Chris willing to embrace the harsh wilderness of Alaska. Growing up in the same troubled household, Carine speaks candidly about the deeper reality of life in the McCandless family. In the many years since the tragedy of Chris's death, Carine has searched for some kind of redemption. In this touching and deeply personal memoir, she reveals how she has learned that real redemption can only come from speaking the truth.

Article 353 by Tanguy Viel Summary

This atmospheric noir novel retraces the steps that led to a murder off the coast of Brittany, probing the relationship between law and justice. In a depressed town on France's northern coast, a man named Martial Kermeur has been arrested for the murder of real estate developer Antoine Lazenec after throwing him overboard. Called before a judge, Kermeur goes back to the beginning to explain what brought him to this desperate point: his divorce, his son's acting out, layoffs at his job, and, above all, Lazenec's dazzling project for a seaside resort. The temptation to invest all of your severance pay in a beautiful apartment with a view of the sea is great. But still, it has to be built. In this subtle, enthralling novel, Tanguy Viel examines not only the psychology of a crime, but also the larger social ills that may offer its justification.

General Simon Bolivar, “the Liberator” of five South American countries, takes a last melancholy journey down the Magdalena River, revisiting cities along its shores, and reliving the triumphs, passions, and betrayals of his life. Infinitely charming, prodigiously successful in love, war and politics, he still dances with such enthusiasm and skill that his witnesses cannot believe he is ill. Aflame with memories of the power that he commanded and the dream of continental unity that eluded him, he is a moving exemplar of how much can be won—and lost—in a life.

Left for Dead by Beck Weathers,Stephen G. Michaud Summary

With a new preface by the author • As featured in the upcoming motion picture Everest, starring Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, John Hawkes, Robin Wright, Emily Watson, Keira Knightley, Sam Worthington, and Jake Gyllenhaal “I can tell you that some force within me rejected death at the last moment and then guided me, blind and stumbling—quite literally a dead man walking—into camp and the shaky start of my return to life.” In 1996 Beck Weathers and a climbing team pushed toward the summit of Mount Everest. Then a storm exploded on the mountain, ripping the team to shreds, forcing brave men to scratch and crawl for their lives. Rescuers who reached Weathers saw that he was dying, and left him. Twelve hours later, the inexplicable occurred. Weathers appeared, blinded, gloveless, and caked with ice—walking down the mountain. In this powerful memoir, now featuring a new Preface, Weathers describes not only his escape from hypothermia and the murderous storm that killed eight climbers, but the journey of his life. This is the story of a man’s route to a dangerous sport and a fateful expedition, as well as the road of recovery he has traveled since; of survival in the face of certain death, the reclaiming of a family and a life; and of the most extraordinary adventure of all: finding the courage to say yes when life offers us a second chance. Praise for Left for Dead “Riveting . . . [a] remarkable survival story . . . Left for Dead takes a long, critical look at climbing: Weathers is particularly candid about how the demanding sport altered and strained his relationships.”—USA Today “Ultimately, this engrossing tale depicts the difficulty of a man’s struggle to reform his life.”—Publishers Weekly

Dear Mr. M by Herman Koch Summary

The tour-de-force, hair-raising new novel from Herman Koch, the New York Times bestselling author of The Dinner and Summer House with Swimming Pool Once a celebrated writer, M had his greatest success with a suspense novel based on a real-life disappearance. It told the story of a history teacher who went missing one winter after having a brief affair with a beautiful student of his. The teacher was never found. Upon publication, M's novel was a runaway bestseller, one that marked his international breakthrough. That was years ago, and now M's career is fading. But not when it comes to his bizarre, seemingly timid neighbor who keeps a close eye on him and his wife. Why? From alternating points of view, where no one is to be trusted, Herman Koch weaves together an intricate tale of a writer in decline, a teenage couple in love, a missing teacher, and a single book that entwines all of their fates. Thanks to M's novel, supposedly a work of fiction, everyone seems to be linked forever, until something unexpected spins the "story" off its rails. With ever increasing tension, his signature sardonic wit and world-renowned sharp eye for human failings, Herman Koch once again spares nothing and no one in his gripping new novel, a barbed performance that suspends readers in the mysterious space between fact and fiction.

Voyage au bout de la révolution.De Pékin à Sochaux by Claire BRIERE-BLANCHET Summary

La France a échappé au terrorisme qu’ont connu l’Allemagne et l’Italie; de peu: les «maos», comme ils se désignaient eux-mêmes, prônaient dans notre pays l’affrontement violent avec le pouvoir et la police, les cadres des usines, les militants du parti communiste. C’est cette radicalité que l’on découvre dans ce récit autobiographique d’une ancienne de la Gauche prolétarienne que dirigeait Benny Lévy, un jeune et brillant philosophe dont le fanatisme ne se démentira jamais, avec aussi Olivier Rolin, Alain Geismar et bien d’autres. Voyage initiatique en Chine, Mai 68, activisme politique à Grenoble, séjours en prison, clandestinité, établissement en usine à Grenoble et à Sochaux, procès internes, Claire Brière-Blanchet a suivi ce chemin extrême jusqu’en 1973. La révolution ne lui a pas pris seulement sa jeunesse, mais aussi sa petite fille Judith. Ce drame scella l’échec de ces années d’ascétisme militant. Claire mettra des années à se reconstruire, et à pouvoir enfin raconter sa saisissante et terrifiante épopée. Étudiante en histoire à la Sorbonne, Claire Brière entre en extrême gauche en 1960 avec la guerre d’Algérie. Gauchiste, puis maoïste, elle passe quinze ans au service exclusif de ce qu’elle croit être la révolution, avec son mari Pierre Blanchet, qui sera tué en reportage en Croatie en 1991. En 1975, elle devient reporter à Libérationet publie des ouvrages sur l’Iran, puis le Liban, l’Égypte et l’Irak. De 1988 à 2007, elle est en charge des publications de «Médecins du Monde» et crée la revue Ingérences.

Woman at Sea by Catherine Poulain Summary

**NOMINATED FOR THE MÉDICIS PRIZE 2018** 'A tale of travel and adventure, the story of a body utterly surrendered to pain and joy. It is mind-blowing, a delight.' Le Monde Lili is a runaway. She’s left behind her native France to go in search of freedom, of adventure, of life. Her search takes her to Kodiak, Alaska, home to a ragtag community of fishermen, army vets and drifters who man the island’s fishing fleet. Despite her tiny frame, faltering English and lack of experience, Lili lands a job on board the Rebel, the only woman on the boat. Out on the open sea, everything is heightened: colours are more vivid, sounds are louder and the work is harder than anything she's ever known. The terrifying intensity of the ocean is addictive to the point of danger. But Lili is not alone: in her fellow crewmembers she finds kindred spirits – men living on the edge, drawn to extremes. Based on Catherine Poulain’s own experiences, and written in taut, muscular prose, Woman at Sea cuts through the noise of life and straight to the heart of our innermost longings.

Seven Days by Patrick Senécal Summary

For fans of Stephen King’s Misery and Jo Nesbø’s The Snowman comes an engrossing thriller about a monster who becomes a victim and a victim who becomes a monster. From Patrick Senécal, the Quebec author who has sold over a million books worldwide. One sunny fall day, Dr. Bruno Hamel’s life changes forever. His beloved seven-year-old daughter, Jasmine, is the victim of a tragic crime. Grief-stricken, Hamel sets in play a meticulous plan. He will kidnap the man responsible for his daughter’s death and make him pay horribly for what he has done. He manages to ambush a police transport and disappear with his target. But Hamel hasn’t accounted for Hervé Mercure, a detective with a troubled past who becomes certain he can track down Hamel by studying clues in his past—and in the increasingly unsettling phone calls Hamel makes to his partner, Sylvie. Both riveting and provocative, this daring thriller is an enthralling meditation on what it means to be human—and to battle the monster within and without.

Under the Banner of Heaven by Jon Krakauer Summary

This extraordinary work of investigative journalism takes readers inside America’s isolated Mormon Fundamentalist communities, where some 40,000 people still practice polygamy. Defying both civil authorities and the Mormon establishment in Salt Lake City, the renegade leaders of these Taliban-like theocracies are zealots who answer only to God. At the core of Krakauer’s book are brothers Ron and Dan Lafferty, who insist they received a commandment from God to kill a blameless woman and her baby girl. Beginning with a meticulously researched account of this appalling double murder, Krakauer constructs a multi-layered, bone-chilling narrative of messianic delusion, polygamy, savage violence, and unyielding faith. Along the way he uncovers a shadowy offshoot of America’s fastest growing religion, and raises provocative questions about the nature of religious belief.

The Stranger in the Woods by Michael Finkel Summary

Many people dream of escaping modern life, but most will never act on it. This is the remarkable true story of a man who lived alone in the woods of Maine for 27 years, making this dream a reality—not out of anger at the world, but simply because he preferred to live on his own. A New York Times bestseller In 1986, a shy and intelligent twenty-year-old named Christopher Knight left his home in Massachusetts, drove to Maine, and disappeared into the forest. He would not have a conversation with another human being until nearly three decades later, when he was arrested for stealing food. Living in a tent even through brutal winters, he had survived by his wits and courage, developing ingenious ways to store edibles and water, and to avoid freezing to death. He broke into nearby cottages for food, clothing, reading material, and other provisions, taking only what he needed but terrifying a community never able to solve the mysterious burglaries. Based on extensive interviews with Knight himself, this is a vividly detailed account of his secluded life—why did he leave? what did he learn?—as well as the challenges he has faced since returning to the world. It is a gripping story of survival that asks fundamental questions about solitude, community, and what makes a good life, and a deeply moving portrait of a man who was determined to live his own way, and succeeded.

Conquering the Impossible by Mike Horn Summary

In August 2002, Mike Horn set out on a mission that bordered on the impossible: to travel 12,000 miles around the globe at the Arctic Circle - alone, against all prevailing winds and currents, and without motorized transportation. Conquering the Impossible is the gripping account of Horn's grueling 27-month expedition by sail and by foot through extreme Arctic conditions that nearly cost him his life on numerous occasions. Enduring temperatures that ranged to as low as -95 degrees Fahrenheit, Horn battled hazards including shifting and unstable ice that gave way and plunged him into frigid waters, encounters with polar bears so close that he felt their breath on his face, severe frostbite in his fingers, and a fire that destroyed all of his equipment and nearly burned him alive. Complementing the sheer adrenaline of Horn's narrative are the isolated but touching human encounters the adventurer has with the hardy individuals who inhabit one of the remotest corners of the earth. From an Inuit who teaches him how to build an igloo to an elderly Russian left behind when the Soviets evacuated his remote Arctic town, Horn finds camaraderie, kindness, and assistance to help him survive the most unforgiving conditions. This awe-inspiring account is a page-turner and an Arctic survival tale in one. Most of all, it's a testament to one man's unrelenting desire to push the boundaries of human endurance.

562 écrivains tombés au champ d'honneur lors de la Grande Guerre ont eu en 1927 la reconnaissance nationale par l'apposition d'une plaque au Panthéon. 130 ont reçu la Légion d'honneur, la Croix de guerre et la mention "Mort pour la France". Mais pour la plupart, ils restent injustement oubliés, méconnus voire inconnus. L'auteur, par un minutieux travail de recherche bibliographique, se propose de les remettre en lumière, eu égard à la valeur de leur engagement au combat et à la richesse et la variété de leur production littéraire.

La sente étroite au bout des Alpes - Carnets de voyage dans le Mercantour by Caroline Audibert,Caroline Challan Belval Summary

Les carnets illustrés d’une pérégrination sur les sentiers du Parc national du Mercantour, ce territoire préservé où les Alpes s’évanouissent dans la Méditerranée. Alors qu’il fête son trentième anniversaire, le Parc national du Mercantour confie à Caroline Audibert la mission de redéfinir le « caractère » de son territoire. Partie de Nice, la journaliste et philosophe a entrepris un périple au long cours, au fil des saisons, entre les monts des Alpes-Maritimes et des Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, sillonnant les routes étroites menant à la vallée de la Roya, empruntant les chemins de la Vésubie, passant les cols qui ouvrent sur la Tinée, l’Ubaye, le haut Verdon et le haut Var. Son voyage l’a conduite parmi les hommes, à travers une terre de mémoire singulièrement vivante. Son témoignage est nourri de rencontres avec les bergers, agriculteurs et artisans qui réinventent les pratiques traditionnelles dans ces vallées, mais aussi avec les historiens, géologues, ethnologues et conservateurs qui mettent en perspective les activités des habitants des 28 communes du Parc ainsi que les patrimoines culturel et naturel du Mercantour. Aux textes de Caroline Audibert dressant le portrait du Mercantour sont associés les dessins à l’encre et les aquarelles de Caroline Challan Belval. Leurs carnets sont un guide précieux pour ceux qui dirigent leurs pas vers les paysages et les villages du Mercantour comme pour ceux qu’intéressent les liens de l’homme à la terre, les enjeux de la biodiversité et les valeurs ressources de la montagne.

Premières séances by Patrick Besson Summary

"Chez le Boulinier du boulevard Jourdan (Paris, 14e arrondissement), j’ai trouvé en solde un vieux guide Leguèbe des films (Omnibus, 2000). Il y a 22 000 films dedans. L’ancienne propriétaire du livre – une certaine Marité, son prénom étant inscrit sur la page de garde – en avait coché un quart d’entre eux, sans doute ceux qu’elle avait vus. Je me suis rendu compte qu’on avait vu en gros les mêmes. Elle doit avoir mon âge ou un peu plus, car dans son choix il y a pas mal de films américains des années 1940 ou 1950 que j’étais trop jeune pour connaître. Peut-être est-elle décédée. Quand quelqu’un meurt, les héritiers se débarrassent en premier de ses livres. Cette Marité et moi, on avait donc dans la tête les mêmes visages, les mêmes paysages, les mêmes histoires découvertes au cinéma. Cela fait de nous, en quelque sorte, des parents. Comme le sont par exemple tous les chrétiens. Le cinéma n’est-il pas une messe ? Il y a des séances tous les jours et toutes les heures, dans les églises des Champs-Élysées et du Quartier latin. Le cinéma est aussi, après le roman, le second miroir que l’on promène le long du chemin de Stendhal, dont les livres ont fait d’excellents films qu’il n’a pas vus. Premières séances rassemble 438 critiques de films qui, avec leur idéologie en bandoulière, m’ont montré le monde de 2000 à 2009. "P. B.

Jusqu'au bout de la foi by V. S. Naipaul Summary

« Jusqu’au bout de la foi est, en toute logique, la suite de Crépuscule sur l’Islam. L’avenir est contenu dans le passé, et la douleur du second livre est contenue dans le premier. Il m’apparut que je n’avais pas pris assez de distance avec le matériau à l’origine de ce premier livre, que je l’avais par trop tenu pour acquis. Il m’apparut qu’il y avait là matière à s’interroger, comme ce dut sans doute être le cas dans le monde classique à l’époque où celui-ci fut supplanté par ce phénomène inconnu qu’était alors le christianisme. De nombreux ouvrages avaient été écrits sur cette transition, et ce dont j’étais témoin, me semblait-il, méritait plus ample réflexion. Au lieu de le tenir pour un fait acquis, il me fallait considérer l’effet que pouvait avoir sur les individus la mise à mal ou le renversement de leur culture. Ainsi ce livre a-t-il pour thème l’histoire d’individus pris dans la déferlante de changements historiques. » V.S. Naipaul
