At the start of summer, a lonely and thoughtful teenager, Evie Boyd, sees a group of girls in the park, and is immediately caught by their freedom, their careless dress, their dangerous aura of abandon. Soon, Evie is in thrall to Suzanne, a mesmerizing older girl, and is drawn into the circle of a soon-to-be infamous cult and the man who is its charismatic leader. Hidden in the hills, their sprawling ranch is eerie and run down, but to Evie, it is exotic, thrilling, charged—a place where she feels desperate to be accepted. As she spends more time away from her mother and the rhythms of her daily life, and as her obsession with Suzanne intensifies, Evie does not realize she is coming closer and closer to unthinkable violence.

Détails: POUR LUI, TOUT EST ÉCRIT D'AVANCE POUR ELLE TOUT RESTE À ÉCRIRE « Un jour d’avril, ma fille de trois ans, Carrie, a disparu alors que nous jouions toutes les deux à cache-cache dans mon appartement de Brooklyn. » Ainsi débute le récit de Flora Conway, romancière renommée à la discrétion légendaire. La disparition de Carrie n’a aucune explication. La porte et les fenêtres de l’appartement étaient closes, les caméras de ce vieil immeuble new-yorkais ne montrent pas d’intrusion. L’enquête de police n’a rien donné. Au même moment, de l’autre côté de l’Atlantique, un écrivain au cœur broyé se terre dans une maison délabrée. Lui seul détient la clé du mystère. Et Flora va le débusquer. Une lecture à nulle autre pareille. En trois actes et deux coups de théâtre, Guillaume Musso nous immerge dans une histoire étourdissante qui puise sa force dans le pouvoir des livres et la rage de vivre de ses personnages. « Un roman peut en cacher un autre. (...) Une vertigineuse mise en abyme et [Guillaume Musso] chahute les frontières entre la fiction et le réel, la vie et le roman, l'auteur et ses personnages. Suspense littéraire et amoureux, réflexion sur le pouvoir des livres et le métier d'écrivain, La vie est un roman est une lecture étourdissante, jubilatoire. » - Bernard Lehut, Laissez-vous tenter, RTL « Un roman aussi vertigineux que dense, exercice de haut vol et d'illusionniste sur les interactions d'un auteur avec ses créatures. » - Marianne Payot, L'Express « Guillaume Musso est un ensorceleur qui fait surgir l’impossible dans la vie de ses personnages au moment où l’on ne s’y attend pas. Son lecteur ne sera pas déçu car, outre le rythme soutenu, l’émotion et des héros attachants, l’intrigue est truffeée de références littéraires et rend un bel hommage aux écrivains. Captivant. » - Anne Michelet, Version Femina « Un récit machiavélique et jubilatoire autour du pouvoir des livres qui nous a complètement bluffés. (...) Guillaume Musso signe ici un de ses romans les plus personnels. Un de ses meilleurs aussi. » - Sandrine Bajos, Le Parisien « Passionnant ! Vous allez vous régaler ! » - Arnold Derek, France Bleu « Une formidable histoire qui ravira à la fois les amateurs de thrillers et les amoureux de littérature. (...) Assurément grand écrivain et grand lecteur, Guillaume Musso revient avec brio sur le métier d’écrire, l’inspiration, la vie réelle et imaginaire... (...) La vie est un roman fait irrésistiblement penser à Romain Gary. » - Alain-Jean Robert, AFP

Taut, suspenseful, and addictive, The Reunion will grip you until its haunting final page.

Détails: “Gaffney’s characters are appealing and realistic…Readers will race through this book.” —New Orleans Times Picayune “Poignant….Entertaining….As good as it gets.” —New York Post No other author writes about the lives and friendships of women with more warmth and grace than New York Times bestseller Patricia Gaffney. A true master of women’s fiction, with Circle of Three she flourishes the same breathtaking characterization and storytelling skills that made her previous novel, The Saving Graces, a readers’ favorite. The story of a woman grieving for her losses and her life, and her relationship with her overbearing mother and precocious young daughter, Circle of Three focuses on three generations of a troubled family, the anger and misunderstanding that separates them…and the love that holds them together. Gaffney does beautifully what Elizabeth Berg, Anne Rivers Siddons, and Anne Tyler also do so well: exploring the tricky bonds of family in novels both heart-soaring and heartbreaking.

Détails: Cinema has been long associated with France, dating back to 1895, when Louis and Auguste Lumi_re screened their works, the first public viewing of films anywhere. Early silent pioneers Georges MZli_s, Alice Guy BlachZ and others followed in the footsteps of the Lumi_re brothers and the tradition of important filmmaking continued throughout the 20th century and beyond. In Encyclopedia of French Film Directors, Philippe Rège identifies every French director who has made at least one feature film since 1895. From undisputed masters to obscure one-timers, nearly 3,000 directors are cited here, including at least 200 filmmakers not mentioned in similar books published in France. Each director's entry contains a brief biographical summary, including dates and places of birth and death; information on the individual's education and professional training; and other pertinent details, such as real names (when the filmmaker uses a pseudonym). The entries also provide complete filmographies, including credits for feature films, shorts, documentaries, and television work. Some of the most important names in the history of film can be found in this encyclopedia, from masters of the Golden Age_Jean Renoir and RenZ Clair_to French New Wave artists such as Fran_ois Truffaut and Jean-Luc Godard.

Détails: Geraldine Chaplin is the most distinguished actor among Charlie Chaplin's children. Through her collaborations with major international film directors, she has created a striking performative presence across international cinema. Her acting also evokes, with varying levels of self-consciousness and in shifting cinematic contexts, the memory of her father's screen performances. This book analyses the distinctive screen art of Geraldine Chaplin and uncover parallels between her performances and her father's work on film. Through this method, this star study explores the rich and surprising relationships between art cinema and silent film comedy, and between modernist and classical cinematic performance. It offers a long overdue appreciation of Geraldine Chaplin's own remarkable screen achievements, all the while shedding new insight into the art of Charlie Chaplin through the singular prism of his daughter's bold work.

Détails: One of the hallmarks of French author Patrick Modiano’s writing is a singular ability to revisit particular motifs and episodes, infusing each telling with new detail and emotional nuance. In this evocative novel the internationally acclaimed author takes up one of his most compelling themes: a love affair with a woman who disappears, and a narrator grappling with the mystery of a relationship stopped short. Set in mid-sixties Paris, After the Circus traces the relationship between the narrator, a young man not quite of legal age, and the slightly older, enigmatic woman he first glimpses at a police interrogation. The two lovers make their uncertain way into each other’s hearts, but the narrator soon finds himself in the unsettling, ominous presence of others. Who are these people? Are they real, or simply evoked? Part romance, part detective story, this mesmerizing book fully demonstrates Modiano’s signature use of atmosphere and suggestion as he investigates the perils and the exhilaration of young love.

Détails: First published in 1943, The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry has been translated into more than 250 languages, becoming a global phenomenon. The Sahara desert is the scenery of Little Prince’s story. The narrator’s plane has crashed there and he has scarcely some food and water to survive. Trying to comprehend what caused the crash, the Little Prince appears. The serious blonde little boy asks to draw him a sheep. The narrator consents to the strange fellow’s request. They soon become friends and the Little Prince informs the pilot that he is from a small planet, the asteroid 325, talks to him about the baobabs, his planet volcanoes and the mysterious rose that grew on his planet. He also talks to him about their friendship and the lie that evoked his journey to other planets. Often puzzled by the grown-ups’ behavior, the little traveler becomes a total and eternal symbol of innocence and love, of responsibility and devotion. Through him we get to see how insightful children are and how grown-ups aren’t. Children use their heart to feel what’s really important, not the eyes. Heart-breaking, funny and thought-provoking, it is an enchanting and endlessly wise fable about the human condition and the power of imagination. A book about both childhood and adulthood, it can be read as a parable, a war story, a classic children's fairy-tale, and many more things besides: The Little Prince is a book for everyone; after all, all grown-ups were children once.

Détails: THE POSTHUMOUS MASTERWORK FROM "ONE OF THE GREATEST AND MOST INFLUENTIAL MODERN WRITERS" (JAMES WOOD, THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW) Composed in the last years of Roberto Bolaño's life, 2666 was greeted across Europe and Latin America as his highest achievement, surpassing even his previous work in its strangeness, beauty, and scope. Its throng of unforgettable characters includes academics and convicts, an American sportswriter, an elusive German novelist, and a teenage student and her widowed, mentally unstable father. Their lives intersect in the urban sprawl of SantaTeresa—a fictional Juárez—on the U.S.-Mexico border, where hundreds of young factory workers, in the novel as in life, have disappeared.

Détails: A classic of Canadian literature by the great Quebecoise writer, Kamouraska is based on a real nineteenth-century love-triangle in rural Quebec. It paints a poetic and terrifying tableau of the life of Elisabeth d'Aulnieres: her marriage to Antoine Tassy, squire of Kamouraska; his violent murder; and her passion for George Nelson, an American doctor. Passionate and evocative, Kamouraska is the timeless story of one woman's destructive commitment to an ideal love. Translated into seven languages, Kamouraska won the Paris book prize and was made into a landmark feature film by Claude Jutra. This edition features a brilliant new introduction by Noah Richler.

Détails: Ernest Hemingway’s classic memoir of Paris in the 1920s, now available in a restored edition, includes the original manuscript along with insightful recollections and unfinished sketches. Published posthumously in 1964, A Moveable Feast remains one of Ernest Hemingway’s most enduring works. Since Hemingway’s personal papers were released in 1979, scholars have examined the changes made to the text before publication. Now, this special restored edition presents the original manuscript as the author prepared it to be published. Featuring a personal foreword by Patrick Hemingway, Ernest’s sole surviving son, and an introduction by grandson of the author, Seán Hemingway, editor of this edition, the book also includes a number of unfinished, never-before-published Paris sketches revealing experiences that Hemingway had with his son, Jack, and his first wife Hadley. Also included are irreverent portraits of literary luminaries, such as F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ford Maddox Ford, and insightful recollections of Hemingway’s own early experiments with his craft. Widely celebrated and debated by critics and readers everywhere, the restored edition of A Moveable Feast brilliantly evokes the exuberant mood of Paris after World War I and the unbridled creativity and unquenchable enthusiasm that Hemingway himself epitomized.

Détails: The genre of mélodrame à grand spectacle that emerged in the boulevard theatres of Paris in the 1790s - and which was quickly exported abroad - expressed the moral struggle between good and evil through a drama of heightened emotions. Physical gesture, mise en scène and music were as important in communicating meaning and passion as spoken dialogue. The premise of this volume is the idea that the melodramatic aesthetic is central to our understanding of nineteenth-century music drama, broadly defined as spoken plays with music, operas and other hybrid genres that combine music with text and/or image. This relationship is examined closely, and its evolution in the twentieth century in selected operas, musicals and films is understood as an extension of this nineteenth-century aesthetic. The book therefore develops our understanding of opera in the context of melodrama's broader influence on musical culture during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. This book will appeal to those interested in film studies, drama, theatre and modern languages as well as music and opera.

Détails: Like many national cinemas, the French cinema has a rich tradition of film musicals beginning with the advent of sound to the present. This is the first book to chart the development of the French film musical. The French film musical is remarkable for its breadth and variety since the 1930s; although it flirts with the Hollywood musical in the 1930s and again in the 1950s, it has very distinctive forms rooted in the traditions of French chanson. Defining it broadly as films attracting audiences principally because of musical performances, often by well-known singers, Phil Powrie and Marie Cadalanu show how the genre absorbs two very different traditions with the advent of sound: European operetta and French chanson inflected by American jazz (1930-1950). As the genre matures, operetta develops into big-budget spectaculars with popular tenors, and revue films also showcase major singers in this period (1940-1960). Both sub-genres collapse with the advent of rock n roll, leading to a period of experimentation during the New Wave (1960-1990). The contemporary period since 1995 renews the genre, returning nostalgically both to the genre's origins in the 1930s, and to the musicals of Jacques Demy, but also hybridising with other genres, such as the biopic and the documentary.

Détails: Que fait un psychanalyste, sinon tenter de déchiffrer les rêves que nous portons en nous comme des présages de ce que nous deviendrons ? Le plus grand psychanalyste mexicain interprète dans ce magnifique livre les premiers souvenirs d’enfance relatés par des écrivains, ainsi que des rêves, pour démêler ce qui appartient à la vérité et au mensonge nécessaire. La mémoire, en chacun de nous, tente ainsi de mettre à distance le sentiment de cette inquiétante étrangeté de notre passé, en récrivant sans fin notre propre histoire. C’est un écrivain, Julio Cortázar, qui, racontant son plus ancien souvenir, celui de la terreur que lui inspire le chant d’un coq, a mis Nestor A. Braunstein sur la voie de cette hypothèse, qu’il va par la suite s’employer à vérifier à propos des premiers souvenirs de différents auteurs : Borges et García Marquez qui parlent sa langue, mais aussi Virginia Woolf ou Vladimir Nabokov, Elias Canetti ou Hermann Broch, enfin Perec ou Leiris, sans parler de l’omniprésence de Freud et de Proust. Lors de cette promenade par les sentiers oubliés de textes peu fréquentés, mais déterminants pour la compréhension de leur auteur, Nestor A. Braunstein n’use d’aucun jargon et fait preuve de l’humanisme souriant d’un psychanalyste averti.

Détails: This book explores literary representations of cultural hybridity spanning nearly half a century, a period marked by major shifts in Franco-Vietnamese relations. How can identity be thought and represented outside of the oppositional categories that divide cultures, histories, languages and races? Can the intercultural subject be understood as more than a site of cultural contestation, as anything other than a confrontation between incompatible binary opposites? This book offers compelling responses to these questions through a series of close readings of francophone novels written by Vietnamese authors during and just after the colonial period. While many contemporary studies of cultural hybridity tend to privilege the postmodern, deconstructive play of postcolonial identities, Disorientation seeks to uncover what is often obscured in such celebratory analyses: the rigid and potentially traumatic conditions under which colonized subjects experienced the tensions and contradictions of intercultural identity. The close readings that form the core of the book are inflected by cultural and historical considerations, and informed by a range of primary documents that includes training manuals for colonial administrators, works of imperialist propaganda, tourist guidebooks and travel writing, and textbooks from Franco-Vietnamese schools. These contextualized analyses recast the problem of interculturality in an Asian francophone context, expanding the historical and cultural fields within which questions of identity and difference are currently discussed and offering a striking perspective from which to question postcolonial theories of hybridity.
