Les Yeux bleus cheveux noirs by Marguerite Duras Book Resume:

C’est l’histoire d’un amour, le plus grand et le plus terrifiant qu’il m’a été donné d’écrire. Je le sais. On le sait pour soi. Il s’agit d’un amour qui n’est pas nommé dans les romans et qui n’est pas nommé non plus par ceux qui le vivent. D’un sentiment qui en quelque sorte n’aurait pas encore son vocabulaire, ses mœurs, ses rites. Il s’agit d’un amour perdu. Perdu comme perdition. Lisez le livre. Dans tous les cas même dans celui d’une détestation de principe, lisez-le. Nous n’avons plus rien à perdre ni moi de vous, ni vous de moi. Lisez tout. Lisez toutes les distances que je vous indique, celles des couloirs scéniques qui entourent l’histoire et la calment et vous en libèrent le temps de les parcourir. Continuez à lire et tout à coup l’histoire elle-même vous l’aurez traversée, ses rires, son agonie, ses déserts. Sincèrement vôtre. Duras Les Yeux bleus cheveux noirs est paru en 1986.

La Mort de Mrs Westaway by Ruth WARE Book Resume:

Chaque famille a ses secrets. Certains méritent un meurtre. Lorsque Harriet Westaway reçoit un courrier lui annonçant un héritage conséquent provenant de sa grand-mère, cela semble être la réponse inespérée à tous ses problèmes. En effet, Harriet doit de l'argent, beaucoup d'argent, emprunté à un usurier sans scrupules, et cela risque fort de mettre sa vie en danger. Seul souci : ses grands-parents sont décédés vingt ans auparavant, et elle ne les a même jamais connus. La lettre a donc été adressée à la mauvaise personne. Mais Harriet qui gagne sa vie en tirant les cartes pour prédire l'avenir n'est plus à une affabulation près. Et ce coup du sort pourrait enfin tout résoudre sauf si le hasard en décide autrement... " Une prose évocatrice, des personnages dérangeants ainsi qu'une atmosphère effrayante et claustrophobe font tourner les pages de ce drame familial explosif. " Publishers Weekly

Lady Audley's Secret by Mary Elizabeth Braddon Book Resume:

A barrister becomes a detective when his friend disappears at an English manor in this classic Victorian novel. Beautiful Lucy Graham charms every man she meets, including wealthy widower Sir Michael Audley. After they marry, he refurbishes his mansion to create a little palace for his new wife, where her future seems bright. Her past, however, is shrouded in darkness, and she’ll do whatever it takes to keep it hidden. Then Sir Michael’s nephew, Robert, a London barrister, comes for a visit with his good friend George Talboys for a week of fishing. But when George mysteriously vanishes, there’s no time to relax. Increasingly suspicious of his new aunt, Robert searches for clues, determined to find his friend and discover exactly who Lady Audley really is. One of the most popular examples of the “sensation novel” craze that swept England during the nineteenth century, Lady Audley’s Secret is said to reflect themes from a real-life crime of the era, the notorious Constance Kent case.

The Knights of England, France, and Scotland by Henry William Herbert Book Resume:

Example in this ebook THE SAXON’S OATH. “My tongue hath sworn, but still my mind is free.” The son of Godwin was the flower of the whole Saxon race. The jealousies which had disturbed the mind of Edward the Confessor had long since passed away; and Harold, whom he once had looked upon with eyes of personal aversion, he now regarded almost as his own son. Yet still the Saxon hostages—Ulfnoth, and the young son of Swerga, who in the time of his mad predilection for the Normans, and his unnatural distrust of his own countrymen, had been delivered for safe keeping to William, duke of Normandy—still lingered, melancholy exiles, far from the white cliffs of their native land. And now, for the first time since their departure, did the aspect of affairs appear propitious for their liberation; and Harold, brother of one, and uncle of the other, full of proud confidence in his own intellect and valor, applied to Edward for permission that he might cross the English channel, and, personally visiting the Norman, bring back the hostages in honor and security to the dear land of their forefathers. The countenance of the Confessor fell at the request; and, conscious probably in his own heart of some rash promise made in days long past, and long repented, to the ambitious William, he manifested a degree of agitation amounting almost to alarm. “Harold,” he said, after a long pause of deliberation—“Harold, my son, since you have made me this request, and that your noble heart seems set on its accomplishment, it shall not be my part to do constraint or violence to your affectionate and patriotic wishes. Go, then, if such be your resolve, but go without my leave, and contrary to my advice. It is not that I would not have your brother and your kinsman home, but that I do distrust the means of their deliverance; and sure I am, that should you go in person, some terrible disaster shall befall ourselves and this our country. Well do I know Duke William; well do I know his spirit—brave, crafty, daring, deep, ambitious, and designing. You, too, he hates especially, nor will he grant you anything, save at a price that shall draw down an overwhelming ruin on you who pay it, and on the throne of which you are the glory and the stay. If we would have these hostages delivered at a less ransom than the downfall of our Saxon dynasty—the misery of merry England—another messenger than thou must seek the wily Norman. Be it, however, as thou wilt, my friend, my kinsman, and my son.” Oh, sage advice, and admirable counsel! advice how fatally neglected—counsel how sadly frustrated! Gallant, and brave, and young; fraught with a noble sense of his own powers, a full reliance on his own honorable purposes; untaught as yet in that, the hardest lesson of the world’s hardest school, distrust of others, suspicion of all men—Harold set forth upon his journey, as it were, on an excursion in pursuit of pleasure. Surrounded by a train of blithe companions, gallantly mounted, gorgeously attired, with falcon upon fist, and greyhounds bounding by his side, gayly and merrily he started, on a serene autumnal morning, for the coast of Sussex. There he took ship; and scarcely was he out of sight of land, when, as it were at once to justify the words of Edward, the wind, which had been on his embarkation the fairest that could blow from heaven, suddenly shifted round, the sky was overcast with vast clouds of a leaden hue, the waves tossed wildly with an ominous and hollow murmur; and, ere the first day had elapsed, as fierce a tempest burst upon his laboring barks as ever baffled mariner among the perilous shoals and sandbanks of the narrow seas. Hopeless almost of safety, worn out with unaccustomed toil and hard privations, for three days and as many nights they battled with the stormy waters; and on the morning of the fourth, To be continue in this ebook...

Le texte officiel de la production originale du West End (Londres) d'Harry Potter et l'Enfant Maudit. Être Harry Potter n’a jamais été facile et ne l’est pas davantage depuis qu’il est un employé surmené du Ministère de la Magie, marié et père de trois enfants. Tandis que Harry se débat avec un passé qui refuse de le laisser en paix, son plus jeune fils, Albus, doit lutter avec le poids d’un héritage familial dont il n’a jamais voulu. Le destin vient fusionner passé et présent. Père et fils se retrouvent face à une dure vérité: parfois, les ténèbres surviennent des endroits les plus inattendus. Le texte de la pièce Harry Potter et l’enfant maudit a initialement été publié comme une « édition spéciale répétition », parue à l’été 2016, en même temps que la première de la pièce de Jack Thorne dans le West End londonien. La pièce de théâtre, d’après une histoire originale de J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany et Jack Thorne, a été accueillie avec enthousiasme par les spectateurs comme les critiques, tandis que le texte officiel devenait instantanément un bestseller mondial. Cette version définitive et finale de la pièce met à jour l’ « édition spéciale répétition », avec le dialogue définitif de la pièce, qui a subtilement changé depuis les répétitions, complété par un entretien entre le metteur en scène John Tiffany et l’auteur Jack Thorne. Ils y partagent quelques histoires et réflexions à propos de la lecture de pièces de théâtre. Cette édition comprend également des informations contextuelles utiles, notamment l’arbre généalogique de la famille Potter et une chronologie des événements se déroulant dans le monde des sorciers avant le début d’Harry Potter et l’enfant maudit.

The Spectral City by Leanna Renee Hieber Book Resume:

Solving crime isn’t only for the living. In turn-of-the century New York City, the police have an off-the-books spiritual go-to when it comes to solving puzzling corporeal crimes . . . Her name is Eve Whitby, gifted medium and spearhead of The Ghost Precinct. When most women are traveling in a gilded society that promises only well-appointed marriage, the confident nineteen-year-old Eve navigates a social circle that carries a different kind of chill. Working with the diligent but skeptical Lieutenant Horowitz, as well as a group of fellow psychics and wayward ghosts, Eve holds her own against detractors and threats to solve New York’s most disturbing crimes as only a medium of her ability can. But as accustomed as Eve is to ghastly crimes and all matters of the uncanny, even she is unsettled by her department’s latest mystery. Her ghostly conduits are starting to disappear one by one as though snatched away by some evil force determined to upset the balance between two realms, and most important—destroy the Ghost Precinct forever. Now Eve must brave the darkness to find the vanished souls. She has no choice. It’s her job to make sure no one is ever left for dead. “There is something truly magical about Leanna Renee Hieber’s writing.” —Shana DuBois Barnes & Noble Sci-Fi/Fantasy Blog on Perilous Prophecy “Smart, boundlessly creative gaslamp fantasy.” —RT Book Reviews on Eterna and Omega “Will have readers chomping at the bit for more.” —Suspense Magazine on Eterna and Omega.

Researching the Song by Shirlee Emmons,Wilbur Watkins Lewis Jr. Book Resume:

Singers are faced with a unique challenge among musicians: they must express not just the music, but the lyrics too. To effectively communicate the meaning behind these words, singers must understand the many references embedded in the vast international repertoire of great art songs. They must deal with the meaning of the lyrics, frequently in a language not their own and of a culture unfamiliar to them. From Zelter and Schubert to Rorem and Musto, Researching the Song serves as an invaluable guide for performers, teachers, and enthusiasts to the art song repertoire. Its more than 2,000 carefully researched entries supply information on most of the mythological, historical, geographical, and literary references contained in western art song. The authors explain the meaning of less familiar literary terms, figures, and authors referenced in song while placing songs in the context of larger literary sources. Readers will find entries dealing with art songs from the German, French, Italian, Russian, Spanish, South American, Greek, Finnish, Scandinavian, and both American and British English repertoires. Sources, narratives, and explanations of major song cycles are also given. Organized alphabetically, the lexicon includes brief biographies of poets, lists of composers who set each poet's work, bibliographic materials, and brief synopses of major works from which song texts were taken, including the plots of all Restoration theater works containing Purcell's vocal music. The more performers know and understand the literary elements of a song, the richer their communication will be. Researching the Song is a vital aid for singers and teachers in interpreting art songs and building song recital programs.

Death of a Russian Priest by Stuart M. Kaminsky Book Resume:

“Never miss a Kaminsky book, and be especially sure not to miss Death of a Russian Priest.” —Tony Hillerman, New York Times–bestselling author In the darkest hours of communist rule, Father Merhum fought to protect the sanctity of the Orthodox Church. Now the Soviet Union is gone, but the bureaucracy survives, and within it lurk men who would do anything to undermine the fragile new Russian democracy. Father Merhum is on his way to Moscow to denounce those traitors when he is struck with an ax and killed. As police inspectors Porfiry Rostnikov and Emil Karpo dig into the past of this celebrated village priest, they uncover strange church secrets and a conspiracy to carry the vile corruption of the former regime on into the twenty-first century. But if they don’t watch their steps, someone may need to say the last rites for them. With the Edgar Award–winning Inspector Porfiry Rostnikov series, “Stuart Kaminsky evokes Russian life like a born Muscovite. . . . Don’t miss this one. It’s even better than his Edgar-winning A Cold Red Sunrise.” —The Philadelphia Inquirer “Kaminsky moves closer to becoming the Ed McBain of Mother Russia . . . The usual strengths of the series—ingenious plotting, solid police procedure, and Rostnikov’s shrewdly perceptive presence—are joined here by casually effective glimpses of the old Soviet Union in chancy transition. It all adds up to Rostnikov’s best outing since A Cold Red Sunrise.” —Kirkus Reviews

1984 by George Orwell Book Resume:

1984 is considered a work of political prophecy that continues to grow more haunting as it becomes more real with every passing day. It was published seventy years ago. English political novelist George Orwell wrote this dystopian tale as a warning against totalitarianism that told us what the world would be without the freedom to think. It has now become one of the most significant novels of the 20th century. This novel tells the story of Winston Smith, who lives in a society that follows a totalitarian ideology propagated by the party. In this repressive world big brother controls everything, telescreens see everything, police helicopters circle overhead all the time, the thought police uncover every Act of betrayal, the Ministry of love deals in pain and despair, the Ministry of peace wages war and dissent is not tolerated in the mind. Despite all this, in his longing for truth and liberty, Smith begins a secret love affair with a fellow-worker Julia, but soon discovers the true price of freedom is betrayal. The terrifying glimpse into a future that Orwell gives us in 1984 where everyone is a slave to a tyrannical regime has made it perhaps the most influential book of the 20th century. With this special edition, we celebrate the 70th anniversary of this masterpiece.
