As Simple as Snow by Gregory Galloway Book Resume:

"Anna Cayne had moved here in August, just before our sophomore year in high school, but by February she had, one by one, killed everyone in town." Anna—who prefers to be called Anastasia—is a slightly spooky and complicated high school girl with a penchant for riddles, Houdini tricks, and ghost stories. She spends much of her time writing obituaries for every living person in town. She is unlike anyone the narrator has ever known, and they make an unlikely, though happy, pair. Then a week before Valentine's Day, Anna disappears, leaving behind only a dress placed neatly near a hole in the frozen river, and a string of unanswered questions. Desperate to find her, or at least to comprehend what happened and why, the narrator begins to reconstruct the past five months. And soon the fragments of curious events, intimate conversations, secrets, and peculiar letters (and the anonymous messages that continue to arrive) coalesce into haunting and surprising revelations that may implicate friends, relatives, and even Anna herself.

The Disappearance of Childhood by Neil Postman Book Resume:

From the vogue for nubile models to the explosion in the juvenile crime rate, this modern classic of social history and media traces the precipitous decline of childhood in America today−and the corresponding threat to the notion of adulthood. Deftly marshaling a vast array of historical and demographic research, Neil Postman, author of Technopoly, suggests that childhood is a relatively recent invention, which came into being as the new medium of print imposed divisions between children and adults. But now these divisions are eroding under the barrage of television, which turns the adult secrets of sex and violence into poprular entertainment and pitches both news and advertising at the intellectual level of ten-year-olds. Informative, alarming, and aphorisitc, The Disappearance of Childhood is a triumph of history and prophecy.

When Regan Reilly returned to the West Coast, where she began her career as a PI, she never imagined that her unsuccessful appearance on a game show seven years earlier would throw her trip totally off course! REGAN REILLY is in Los Angeles with her husband, Jack, head of the NYPD Major Case Squad. After Jack finishes his meetings with the LAPD, the couple may head north to the wine country, or may head south to Baja. Their only plan is to see which way the wind blows.

To her surprise, she runs into Zelda, a woman she’d become friendly with seven years before at a television studio in Burbank, when they were waiting to appear on the game show Puzzling Words. They haven’t seen each other since. Zelda and Regan didn’t win much money, but Zelda made up for it! A year ago an elderly neighbor she barely knew left Zelda eight million dollars. She has been enjoying her newfound wealth but is aware of the need to give back. At a recent fundraiser, she bid on a week’s stay in an old Hollywood Hills estate and was the lucky winner. She’s currently in residence there and invites Regan to a party at the mansion. While Jack attends a business dinner, Regan goes to Zelda’s by herself, unaware that she is being followed.

Zelda introduces Regan to a colorful cast of characters, including her old neighbors, friends from her yoga class, a filmmaker, Zelda’s financial adviser, her bookkeeper, and her personal assistant. It’s all good fun. As the guests are leaving, Zelda asks Regan to stay for a cup of tea. They’ve barely sat down to chat when Zelda falls ill.

The couple said “I do” in the back of a cab at a drive-through chapel in Las Vegas after only three months of togetherness. Has Zelda’s windfall put her in danger?

Shadows in the City of Light by Sara R. Horowitz,Amira Bojadzija-Dan,Julia Creet Book Resume:

Examines the place of Paris in French Jewish literary memory, a memory that, of necessity, grapples with the aftermath of the Holocaust. The essays in Shadows in the City of Light explore the significance of Paris in the writing of five influential French writers—Sarah Kofman, Patrick Modiano, George Perec, Henri Raczymow, and Irene Nemirovsky—whose novels and memoirs capture and probe the absences of deported Paris Jews. These writers move their readers through wartime and postwar cityscapes of Paris, walking them through streets and arrondissments where Jews once resided, looking for traces of the disappeared. The city functions as more than a backdrop or setting. Its streets and buildings and monuments remind us of the exhilarating promise of the French Revolution and what it meant for Jews dreaming of equality. But the dynamic space of Paris also reminds us of the Holocaust and its aftermath. The shadowed paths traced by these writers raise complicated questions about ambivalence, absence, memory, secularity, and citizenship. In their writing, the urban landscape itself bears witness to the absent Jews, and what happened to them. For the writers treated in this volume, neither their Frenchness nor their Jewishness is a fixed point. Focusing on Paris’s dual role as both a cultural hub and a powerful symbol of hope and conflict in Jewish memory, the contributors address intersections and departures among these writers. Their complexity of thought, artistry, and depth of vision shape a new understanding of the impact of the Holocaust on Jewish and French identity, on literature and literary forms, and on the development of Jewish secular culture in Western Europe. Sara R. Horowitz is Professor of Humanities and Comparative Literature at York University and the author of Voicing the Void: Muteness and Memory in Holocaust Fiction, also published by SUNY Press. Amira Bojadzija-Dan is Research Associate at the Israel and Golda Koschitzky Centre for Jewish Studies at York University. Julia Creet is Professor of English at York University and the author of The Genealogical Sublime. Together, they are also coeditors of H. G. Adler: Life, Literature, Legacy.

La réinstauration du multipartisme en Côte d'Ivoire ou la double mort d'Houphouet-Boigny by Diégou Bailly Book Resume:

Ce livre recense de façon chronologique et thématique l'histoire de la crise politique ivoirienne de 1990. Trois mois (du 19 février au 30 avril 1990) : une brève période, dont l'intensité a suffi à " gâter " l'ordre suffocant établi par le régime Houphouétiste à l'indépendance, soit depuis trente ans ! La mise en action de toutes les forces du changement est analysée : " l'agitation " des jeunes, la constitution des partis politiques ou la sortie de clandestinité des groupes contestataires, la nouvelle presse débridée, les discours des ténors de l'opposition comme ceux de l'orthodoxie déstabilisée... Ainsi que les réactions de l'étranger, notamment le " tuteur " français surpris par cette mise à mort du " Père de la Nation ", du " Sage de l'Afrique "... Certes, l'avènement de la IIe République n'a pas entièrement émergé de ce chaos créateur, mais les bases d'une " Révolution tranquille " ont ainsi été scellées. Après le rétablissement des libertés républicaines fondamentales, le processus d'ouverture (et de désintégration) s'est accéléré avec la guerre de succession menée sans merci par les prétendants, du vivant même du président Houphouët-Boigny, et évidemment a décuplé après sa disparition cette fois physique. Il fallait restituer à la mémoire collective ce moment fondateur de l'Histoire de la Côte d'Ivoire, qui l'a ébranlée durablement.
