Détails: NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The Washington Post • NPR • The Guardian • Kirkus Reviews • The fiction of multiple award–winning author China Miéville is powered by intelligence and imagination. Like George Saunders, Karen Russell, and David Mitchell, he pulls from a variety of genres with equal facility, employing the fantastic not to escape from reality but instead to interrogate it in provocative, unexpected ways. London awakes one morning to find itself besieged by a sky full of floating icebergs. Destroyed oil rigs, mysteriously reborn, clamber from the sea and onto the land, driven by an obscure purpose. An anatomy student cuts open a cadaver to discover impossibly intricate designs carved into a corpse’s bones—designs clearly present from birth, bearing mute testimony to . . . what? Of such concepts and unforgettable images are made the twenty-eight stories in this collection—many published here for the first time. By turns speculative, satirical, and heart-wrenching, fresh in form and language, and featuring a cast of damaged yet hopeful seekers who come face-to-face with the deep weirdness of the world—and at times the deeper weirdness of themselves—Three Moments of an Explosion is a fitting showcase for one of literature’s most original voices. Praise for Three Moments of an Explosion “China Miéville is dazzling. His latest collection of short stories, Three Moments of an Explosion, crowds virtuosity into every sentence.”—The New York Times “You can’t talk about [China] Miéville without using the word ‘brilliant.’ . . . His wit dazzles, his humour is lively, and the pure vitality of his imagination is astonishing.”—Ursula K. Le Guin, The Guardian “[A] gripping collection . . . Miéville expertly mixes science fiction, fantasy and surrealism. . . . Amid the longer stories are more cerebral, poetic flash pieces that will haunt the reader beyond the pages of this exceptional book.”—The Washington Post “The stories shine . . . with a winking brilliance.”—The Seattle Times “Mind-bending excursions into the fantastic.”—NPR “Bradbury meets Borges, with Lovecraft gibbering tumultuously just out of hearing.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review) “Three Moments of an Explosion is a book filled with fabulous oddities.”—Entertainment Weekly “Miéville moves effortlessly among realism, fantasy, and surrealism. . . . His characters, whether ordinary witnesses to extraordinary events or lunatics operating out of inexplicable compulsions, are invariably well drawn and compelling.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Détails: The Jungle Book is a collection of stories by English author Rudyard Kipling. The tales in the book are fables, using animals in an anthropomorphic manner to give moral lessons. The verses of The Law of the Jungle, for example, lay down rules for the safety of individuals, families and communities. Kipling put in them nearly everything he knew or "heard or dreamed about the Indian jungle." Other readers have interpreted the work as allegories of the politics and society of the time. The best-known of them are the three stories revolving around the adventures of an abandoned "man cub" Mowgli who is raised by wolves in the Indian jungle. The most famous of the other stories are probably "Rikki-Tikki-Tavi", the story of a heroic mongoose, and "Toomai of the Elephants", the tale of a young elephant-handler.

Détails: Scott Warden is a man haunted by the past--and soon to be haunted by the future. In early-twenty-first-century Thailand, Scott is an expatriate slacker. Then, one day, he inadvertently witnesses an impossible event: the violent appearance of a 200-foot stone pillar in the forested interior. Its arrival collapses trees for a quarter mile around its base, freezing ice out of the air and emitting a burst of ionizing radiation. It appears to be composed of an exotic form of matter. And the inscription chiseled into it commemorates a military victory--sixteen years in the future. Shortly afterwards, another, larger pillar arrives in the center of Bangkok--obliterating the city and killing thousands. Over the next several years, human society is transformed by these mysterious arrivals from, seemingly, our own near future. Who is the warlord "Kuin" whose victories they note? Scott wants only to rebuild his life. But some strange loop of causality keeps drawing him in, to the central mystery and a final battle with the future. The Chronoliths by Robert Charles Wilson is a 2002 Hugo Award Nominee for Best Novel and the winner of the 2002 John W. Campbell Memorial Award.

Détails: A WORD WRITTEN ON A WHITE PAGE Christmas Day in the year 182- was somewhat remarkable in the island of Guernsey. Snow fell on that day. In the Channel Islands a frosty winter is uncommon, and a fall of snow is an event. On that Christmas morning, the road which skirts the seashore from St. Peter's Port to the Vale was clothed in white. From midnight till the break of day the snow had been falling. Towards nine o'clock, a little after the rising of the wintry sun, as it was too early yet for the Church of England folks to go to St. Sampson's, or for the Wesleyans to repair to Eldad Chapel, the road was almost deserted. Throughout that portion of the highway which separates the first from the second tower, only three foot-passengers could be seen. These were a child, a man, and a woman. Walking at a distance from each other, these wayfarers had no visible connection. The child, a boy of about eight years old, had stopped, and was looking curiously at the wintry scene. The man walked behind the woman, at a distance of about a hundred paces. Like her he was coming from the direction of the church of St. Sampson. The appearance of the man, who was still young, was something between that of a workman and a sailor. He wore his working-day clothes—a kind of Guernsey shirt of coarse brown stuff, and trousers partly concealed by tarpaulin leggings—a costume which seemed to indicate that, notwithstanding the holy day, he was going to no place of worship. His heavy shoes of rough leather, with their soles covered with large nails, left upon the snow, as he walked, a print more like that of a prison lock than the foot of a man. The woman, on the contrary, was evidently dressed for church. She wore a large mantle of black silk, wadded, under which she had coquettishly adjusted a dress of Irish poplin, trimmed alternately with white and pink; but for her red stockings, she might have been taken for a Parisian. She walked on with a light and free step, so little suggestive of the burden of life that it might easily be seen that she was young. Her movements possessed that subtle grace which indicates the most delicate of all transitions—that soft intermingling, as it were, of two twilights—the passage from the condition of a child to that of womanhood. The man seemed to take no heed of her.

Détails: It is 1998, the year in which America is whipped into a frenzy of prurience by the impeachment of a president, and in a small New England town, an aging classics professor, Coleman Silk, is forced to retire when his colleagues decree that he is a racist. The charge is a lie, but the real truth about Silk would have astonished his most virulent accuser. Coleman Silk has a secret. But it's not the secret of his affair, at seventy-one, with Faunia Farley, a woman half his age with a savagely wrecked past--a part-time farmhand and a janitor at the college where, until recently, he was the powerful dean of faculty. And it's not the secret of Coleman's alleged racism, which provoked the college witch-hunt that cost him his job and, to his mind, killed his wife. Nor is it the secret of misogyny, despite the best efforts of his ambitious young colleague, Professor Delphine Roux, to expose him as a fiend. Coleman's secret has been kept for fifty years: from his wife, his four children, his colleagues, and his friends, including the writer Nathan Zuckerman, who sets out to understand how this eminent, upright man, esteemed as an educator for nearly all his life, had fabricated his identity and how that cannily controlled life came unraveled. Set in 1990s America, where conflicting moralities and ideological divisions are made manifest through public denunciation and rituals of purification, The Human Stain concludes Philip Roth's eloquent trilogy of postwar American lives that are as tragically determined by the nation's fate as by the "human stain" that so ineradicably marks human nature. This harrowing, deeply compassionate, and completely absorbing novel is a magnificent successor to his Vietnam-era novel, American Pastoral, and his McCarthy-era novel, I Married a Communist.

The dashing young king, Nikolai Lantsov, has always had a gift for the impossible. No one knows what he endured in his country’s bloody civil war—and he intends to keep it that way. Now, as enemies gather at his weakened borders, Nikolai must find a way to refill Ravka’s coffers, forge new alliances, and stop a rising threat to the once-great Grisha Army. Yet with every day a dark magic within him grows stronger, threatening to destroy all he has built. With the help of a young monk and a legendary Grisha general, Nikolai will journey to the places in Ravka where the deepest magic survives to vanquish the terrible legacy inside him. He will risk everything to save his country and himself. But some secrets aren’t meant to stay buried—and some wounds aren’t meant to heal. An Imprint Book Read all the books in the Grishaverse!

Détails: L’homme qui organisa la résistance à l’intérieur d’Auschwitz Le lieutenant de cavalerie Witold Pilecki a 38 ans en 1940. Sous un faux nom, il se laisse arrêter, comme par un fait exprès, au cours d’une rafle de la Gestapo, et entre à Auschwitz pour raconter au monde ce qui s’y passe : ses écrits, envoyés depuis le camp de concentration, sont les premiers documents sur la question à être parvenus aux Alliés. L’homme est habile, astucieux et chanceux. Il s’évade de façon rocambolesque en 1943 puis prend part à l’insurrection de Varsovie en 1944, mais se retrouve de nouveau prisonnier des Allemands, jusqu’à la fin de la guerre. A son retour en Pologne, il comprend immédiatement que les idéaux pour lesquels il s’est sacrifié n’ont plus droit de cité dans sa patrie. L’heure est à la toute-puissance de l’Armée Rouge et à l’endoctrinement soviétique. Tout ce qu’a pu faire Pilecki n’a aucune valeur pour les autorités communistes. Il devient gênant ; et voilà qu’on l’accuse d’être un « traître », « un agent impérialiste », un « ennemi du peuple » à éliminer. Son destin est scellé : condamné trois fois à mort, il est exécuté le 25 mai 1948. Un lourd silence tombe sur lui, et sur ce qu’il a fait. La damnatio memoriae est absolue, il est interdit de prononcer jusqu’à son nom. Encore aujourd’hui, vingt ans après la chute du Mur de Berlin, sa famille ignore l’endroit où il est enterré.

Détails: Ce livre embrasse, pour la première fois en un même regard, les pays de cette « autre moitié » de l’Europe située à l’Est, longtemps oubliée par l’Occident, et dont l’histoire était jusqu’à présent fractionnée et cloisonnée en fonction de la géopolitique stalinienne (États Baltes inclus dans l’URSS, démocraties populaires d’Europe centrale, pays communistes exclus de l’orbite soviétique...). Une telle approche comparative permet de caractériser avec une netteté particulière les lignes directrices de l’histoire contemporaine de cette Europe de l’Est. Placés en position de marches frontières entre l’Orient et l’Occident, les pays qui la composent ont été disputés entre les grandes puissances du moment, sont passés massivement, souvent par force, au communisme, après avoir subi les méfaits des régimes fascistes et, à la surprise générale, sont parvenus à se dégager du carcan totalitaire. L’ouvrage souligne fortement que la rupture inattendue du mur de Berlin, qui marqua la désatellisation des « démocraties populaires » en 1989, puis l’implosion de l’URSS en 1991, constituèrent une révolution dans les rapports entre les deux parties de l’Europe : l’Est et l’Ouest. Au total, l’histoire immédiate de l’Europe de l’Est est celle d’une aventure exceptionnelle qui, en une accélération de l’histoire, a conduit ces pays du totalitarisme à une démocratie et, pour la très grande majorité d’entre eux, du Bloc soviétique à l’Union européenne. Jean-François SOULET, professeur émérite à l’Université de Toulouse-Le-Mirail, à l’Institut d’Études Politiques et à l’École de Journalisme de Toulouse, est spécialiste de l’histoire comparée du monde communiste et de l’histoire de la société civile.

Détails: La prima parte del libro raccoglie venticinque contributi di archeologia e storia, cha prendono spunto dagli scritti di Françoise spesso inediti e generosamente condivisi, dai suoi scavi, dalla ricomposizione dei contesti nei quali si era impegnata con successo, dalla conoscenza diretta dei materiali, dalle sue osservazioni e dalla lunga pratica negli archivi che aveva così bene ordinato e che conosceva a memoria. Trattano di produzione, circolazione e uso di ceramiche, questioni storiche, sociali, fondiarie e onomastiche, contesti diversi, gruppi di manufatti o singoli esemplari della Sicilia orientale (Siracusa, Megara, Camarina, Castiglione, Monte San Mauro). Seguono altri articoli sulla storia e l’archeologia di Copia Thurii, sulle ricerche francesi a Bolsena, su una tomba etrusca, sulla storia dell’archeologia in Liguria e su una statua di terracotta dal Museo Kanellopoulos di Atene. La seconda parte è dedicata alle opere e ai giorni di Françoise Fouilland e ai suoi lavori per gli archivi dell’École française nei quali aveva trasferito le esperienze siciliane. Alcuni disegni di sua mano ricordano un’altra delle passioni che aveva e che coltivava. Vengono qui per la prima volta pubblicati due importanti manoscritti: su un bothros classico del Tempio Ionico di Ortigia, e sugli scavi inediti di Paolo Orsi (1891/92) nella necropoli occidentale di Megara. Il volume comprende due ricordi personali di Françoise, in Sicilia e a Roma, e su Françoise e gli archivi della École française.
