« L'idée de Sam était belle et folle : monter l'Antigone de Jean Anouilh à Beyrouth. Voler deux heures à la guerre, en prélevant dans chaque camp un fils ou une fille pour en faire des acteurs. Puis rassembler ces ennemis sur une scène de fortune, entre cour détruite et jardin saccagé. Samuel était grec. Juif, aussi. Mon frère en quelque sorte. Un jour, il m'a demandé de participer à cette trêve poétique. Il me l'a fait promettre, à moi, petit théâtreux de patronnage. Et je lui ai dit oui. Je suis allé à Beyrouth le 10 février 1982, main tendue à la paix. Avant que la guerre ne m'offre brutalement la sienne... »

Already an international sensation and prize-winning bestseller in France, an evocative coming-of-age story of a young boy, a lost childhood and a shattered homeland. ‘I was born with this story. It ran in my blood. I belonged to it.’ Burundi, 1992. For ten-year-old Gabriel, life in his comfortable expatriate neighborhood of Bujumbura with his French father, Rwandan mother and little sister Ana, is something close to paradise. These are carefree days of laughter and adventure – sneaking Supermatch cigarettes and gorging on stolen mangoes – as he and his mischievous gang of friends transform their tiny cul-de-sac into their kingdom. But dark clouds are gathering over this small country, and soon their peaceful existence will shatter when Burundi, and neighboring Rwanda, are brutally hit by civil war and genocide. A novel of extraordinary power and beauty, Small Country describes an end of innocence as seen through the eyes of a child caught in the maelstrom of history. Shot through with shadows and light, tragedy and humor, it is a stirring tribute not only to a dark chapter in Africa’s past, but also to the bright days that preceded it.

Au cours des Années folles, où la littérature sportive atteint son apogée et où les championnes et aventurières en tout genre connaissent une popularité sans précédent, la figure de la sportive trouve sa place dans le champ littéraire. Nombreux sont les écrivains, en particulier les romanciers populaires, à s'intéresser à ces jeunes intrépides qui foulent la piste, mettent les gants de boxe, chaussent les crampons ou bourlinguent en Méditerranée. Ils n'hésitent pas à décrire des personnages romanesques hauts en couleur, en ayant à leur égard un sentiment d'admiration pour leur démonstration d'indépendance. En marge des critiques médicales, morales ou pédagogiques, ils participent dès lors à l'évolution des mentalités et révèlent, entre réalité et fiction, éloge et parodie, illustration et revendication, l'existence d'une nouvelle féminité.

A New York Times Notable Book A New York Times bestseller, “DeLillo’s haunting new novel, Zero K—his most persuasive since his astonishing 1997 masterpiece, Underworld” (The New York Times), is a meditation on death and an embrace of life. Jeffrey Lockhart’s father, Ross, is a billionaire in his sixties, with a younger wife, Artis Martineau, whose health is failing. Ross is the primary investor in a remote and secret compound where death is exquisitely controlled and bodies are preserved until a future time when biomedical advances and new technologies can return them to a life of transcendent promise. Jeff joins Ross and Artis at the compound to say “an uncertain farewell” to her as she surrenders her body. “We are born without choosing to be. Should we have to die in the same manner? Isn’t it a human glory to refuse to accept a certain fate?” These are the questions that haunt the novel and its memorable characters, and it is Ross Lockhart, most particularly, who feels a deep need to enter another dimension and awake to a new world. For his son, this is indefensible. Jeff, the book’s narrator, is committed to living, to experiencing “the mingled astonishments of our time, here, on earth.” Don DeLillo’s “daring…provocative…exquisite” (The Washington Post) new novel weighs the darkness of the world—terrorism, floods, fires, famine, plague—against the beauty and humanity of everyday life; love, awe, “the intimate touch of earth and sun.” “One of the most mysterious, emotionally moving, and rewarding books of DeLillo’s long career” (The New York Times Book Review), Zero K is a glorious, soulful novel from one of the great writers of our time.

Maintenant que tout est découvert, ils vont parler à ma place. L'IRA, les Britanniques, ma famille, mes proches, des journalistes que je n'ai même jamais rencontrés. Certains oseront vous expliquer pourquoi et comment j'en suis venu à trahir. Des livres seront peut-être écrits sur moi, et j'enrage. N'écoutez rien de ce qu'ils prétendront. Ne vous fiez pas à mes ennemis, encore moins à mes amis. Détournez-vous de ceux qui diront m'avoir connu. Personne n'a jamais été dans mon ventre, personne. Si je parle aujourd'hui, c'est parce que je suis le seul à pouvoir dire la vérité. Parce qu'après moi, j'espère le silence. Killybegs, le 24 décembre 2006 Tyrone Meehan

Shortly after Albert Cohen left France for London to escape the Nazis, he received news of his mother’s death in Marseille. Unable to mourn her, he expressed his grief in a series of moving pieces for La France libre, which later grew into Book of My Mother. Achingly honest, intimate, and moving, this love song is a tribute to all mothers. Cohen himself expressed, "I shall not have written in vain if one of you, after reading my hymn of death, is one evening gentler with his mother because of me and my mother."

An international literary phenomenon, The Elementary Particles is a frighteningly original novel–part Marguerite Duras and part Bret Easton Ellis-that leaps headlong into the malaise of contemporary existence. Bruno and Michel are half-brothers abandoned by their mother, an unabashed devotee of the drugged-out free-love world of the sixties. Bruno, the older, has become a raucously promiscuous hedonist himself, while Michel is an emotionally dead molecular biologist wholly immersed in the solitude of his work. Each is ultimately offered a final chance at genuine love, and what unfolds is a brilliantly caustic and unpredictable tale. Translated from the French by Frank Wynne. From the Trade Paperback edition.
