Yoshe le fou by , Book Resume:

À l’aube du xixe siècle dans une communauté hassidique de Galicie, Nahum, à peine âgé de quinze ans, a dû épouser la fille de Rabbi Melech, Sourele, pour laquelle il n’a aucune attirance. Dans l’univers clos et frénétique de la cour rabbinique, Nahum vit en marge et se réfugie dans l’étude du Talmud jusqu’au jour où il croise le regard de Malka, la très jeune femme de son beau-père. C’est aussitôt la passion qui embrase tout. Les deux jeunes gens ne résisteront ni au désir ni à la transgression. Mais leur châtiment sera implacable. Quinze ans après le drame, un homme étrange arrive au village et réveille un passé que tous veulent oublier. Qui est-il ? Yoshe le fou est-il Nahum ? Histoire d’un amour passionné, absolu et pourtant interdit, Yoshe le fou (1932), premier grand roman d’Israël Joshua Singer, fut comparé par la critique des années trente à Balzac, Dickens et Tolstoï.

La sidération by Laurence Benaïm Book Resume:

« Tu m’écoutes maman ? Je te parle et je sais que tu n’as plus aucun prétexte pour me fuir. Tu es là justement parce que tu n’es plus. Écrire, c’est tordre le cou du temps, pour t’avoir enfin en face de moi, entièrement à moi. » Lorsque Laurence Benaïm décide d’écrire à sa mère, celle-ci n’est plus. Pourtant elle n’a jamais été aussi proche. Cardiologue parisienne très occupée, petite fille juive cachée pendant la Seconde Guerre mondiale, Nicole, la mère de la narratrice, n’a pas vraiment su parler à sa fille. Alors qu’elle s’éteint petit à petit dans en unité de soins intensifs puis palliatifs, l’auteure tente avec tendresse et honnêteté de combler les pointillés d’une vie peu racontée. Du Paris occupé, en passant par la Bourgogne ombrageuse, jusqu’à Oran, la narratrice cherche, inspecte et déplie ses souvenirs avec ses parents. Pourquoi sa mère était aussi dévouée avec ses patients alors qu’elle, sa fille, n’avait même pas la bonne tenue en cours de danse ? Pourquoi est-ce si dur de se laisser soigner lorsqu’on a été soignante toute sa vie ? Pourquoi la grand-mère maternelle ashkénaze avait du mal à comprendre la douleur de son gendre, sépharade exclu du lycée parce que juif ? Tant de souffrances, celle des familles juives déportées et décimées, celle des Français d'Algérie massacrés, celle d’une fille accompagnant sa mère à l’hôpital, mais pourquoi si peu de mots et de dialogues, au nom de ce qu’il a fallu taire pour se reconstruire ? Avec émotion, subtilité et force, Laurence Benaïm décide de conjurer le sort, de les faire parler tous, pour lutter contre le silence.

Psychoanalysis Listening to Love by Simonetta Diena Book Resume:

This book is about love, about how we fall in love and why we fall in love, and about how much we suffer if unable to love or be loved. The need to love and be loved can be read as the prototype of every human need and every relationship between human beings. To be loved is wishing to be seen, known, recognised for what we are in our deepest and most hidden inner self, in our wildest desires to live and be free. It is a need for knowledge, gratefulness and recognition. Literature, cinema and our very experience of life tell us about it. By listening to love, can psychoanalysis add anything further and new to what has already been said by culture, art and by our life experiences? In psychoanalysis, the events of love can be understood by going back to the most primitive forms of human relationships, that is, to the earliest childhood experiences.

Situating Sexualities by Fran Martin Book Resume:

This is the first book in English to analyse the stunning rise to prominence of cultures of dissident sexuality in Taiwan during the 1990s. Positioned at the crossroads of queer theory and postcolonial cultural studies, this book intervenes in current debates on sexuality and globalization to argue that the current emergence of public, dissident sexualities in non-Western locations like Taiwan cannot be reduced to the effects of homogenizing 'Westernization'. Instead, Situating Sexualities approaches the queer sexualities represented in recent Taiwanese fiction, film and public culture as dynamic formations that combine local knowledge with globalizing discourses on gay and lesbian identity to produce sexualities that are multiple, shifting and inherently hybrid. Equally, the book pushes out the limits of 'queer' to challenge the Eurocentrism of much queer theory to date. Consistently critical of essentializing accounts of 'Chinese' culture, the book nevertheless highlights some of the important ways in which Taiwanese formations of dissident sexuality differ from the familiar Euro-American formations.

The Brothers Ashkenazi by I.J. Singer Book Resume:

In the Polish city of Lodz, the brothers Ashkenazi grew up very differently in talent and in temperament. Max, the firstborn, is fiercely intelligent and conniving, determined to succeed financially by any means necessary. Slower-witted Jacob is strong, handsome, and charming but without great purpose in life. While Max is driven by ambition and greed to be more successful than his brother, Jacob is drawn to easy living and decadence. As waves of industrialism and capitalism flood the city, the brothers and their families are torn apart by the clashing impulses of old piety and new skepticism, traditional ways and burgeoning appetites, and the hatred that grows between faiths, citizens, and classes. Despite all attempts to control their destinies, the brothers are caught up by forces of history, love, and fate, which shape and, ultimately, break them. First published in 1936, The Brothers Ashkenazi quickly became a best seller as a sprawling family saga. Breaking away from the introspective shtetl tales of classic nineteenth-century writers, I. J. Singer brought to Yiddish literature the multilayered plots, large casts of characters, and narrative sweep of the traditional European novel. Walking alongside such masters as Zola, Flaubert, and Tolstoy, I . J. Singer’s premodernist social novel stands as a masterpiece of storytelling.

The Outside World by Tova Mirvis Book Resume:

Tzippy Goldman was born for marriage. She and her mother had always assumed she’d graduate high school, be set up with the right boy, and have a beautiful wedding with white lace and pareve vanilla cream frosting. But at twenty-two, Tzippy’s fast approaching spinsterhood. She dreams of escape; instead, she leaves for a year in Jerusalem.There she meets–re-meets–Baruch, the son of her mother’s college roommate. When Tzippy last saw him, his name was Bryan and he wore a Yankees-logo yarmulke. Now he has adopted the black hat of the ultra-orthodox, the tradition in which Tzippy was raised. Twelve weeks later, they’re engaged...and discovering that desire and tradition, devotion and individuality aren’t the easiest balance. Hilarious, compassionate, and tremendously insightful, The Outside World illuminates an insular community, marvelously depicting that complicated blend of faith, love, and family otherwise known as life in a modern world.

Handbook of Mindfulness by Ronald E. Purser,David Forbes,Adam Burke Book Resume:

This handbook explores mindfulness philosophy and practice as it functions in today’s socioeconomic, cultural, and political landscape. Chapters discuss the many ways in which classic concepts and practices of mindfulness clash, converge, and influence modern theories and methods, and vice versa. Experts across many disciplines address the secularization and commercialization of Buddhist concepts, the medicalizing of mindfulness in therapies, and progressive uses of mindfulness in education. The book addresses the rise of the, “mindfulness movement”, and the core concerns behind the critiques of the growing popularity of mindfulness. It covers a range of dichotomies, such as traditional versus modern, religious versus secular, and commodification versus critical thought and probes beyond the East/West binary to larger questions of economics, philosophy, ethics, and, ultimately, meaning. Featured topics include: A compilation of Buddhist meditative practices. Selling mindfulness and the marketing of mindful products. A meta-critique of mindfulness critiques - from McMindfulness to critical mindfulness Mindfulness-based interventions in clinical psychology and neuroscience. Corporate mindfulness and usage in the workplace. Community-engaged mindfulness and its role in social justice. The Handbook of Mindfulness is a must-have resource for clinical psychologists, complementary and alternative medicine professionals/practitioners, neuroscientists, and educational and business/management leaders and policymakers as well as related mental health, medical, and educational professionals/practitioners.

Men at Arms by Evelyn Waugh Book Resume:

The first part of the Sword of Honour Trilogy, inspired by the author’s experiences in World War II.

When World War II breaks out, he sees a chance to turn his life around, and to combat the evils of modernity. As it turns out, war is not so glamorous as he’d imagined, and he finds himself an officer in an old, stodgy regiment, surrounded by eccentric and buffoonish characters, like his friend Apthorpe, a career soldier with an exceedingly complicated past. Guy is determined to do right by himself, and by his Catholic faith, but circumstances will not make it easy.

The Man Who Never Stopped Sleeping by Aharon Appelfeld Book Resume:

A young holocaust survivor tries to create a new life in the newly established state of Israel. Erwin doesn’t remember much about his journey across Europe when the war ended because he spent most of it asleep, carried by other survivors as they emerged from their hiding places or were liberated from the camps and made their way to Naples, where they filled refugee camps and wondered what was to become of them. Erwin becomes part of a group of boys being rigorously trained both physically and mentally by an emissary from Palestine for life in their new home. When he and his fellow clandestine immigrants are released by British authorities from their detention camp near Haifa, they are assigned to a kibbutz, where they learn how to tend the land and speak their new language. But a part of Erwin clings to the past—to memories of his parents, his mother tongue, the Ukrainian city where he was born—and he knows that despite what he is being told, who he was is just as important as who he is becoming. When he is wounded in an engagement with snipers, Erwin spends months trying to regain the use of his legs. As he exercises his body, he exercises his mind as well, copying passages from the Bible in his newly acquired Hebrew and working up the courage to create his own texts in this language both old and new, hoping to succeed as a writer where his beloved, tormented father had failed. With the support of his friends and the encouragement of his mother (who visits him in his dreams), Erwin takes his first tentative steps with his crutches—and with his pen. Once again, Aharon Appelfeld mines personal experience to create dazzling, masterly fiction with a universal resonance.
