Auteur : Léo Fourrier
Genre : Romans et littérature
Celui dont on ne connaîtra pas le nom est un mineur émancipé de seize ans. En apparence cultivé, homosexuel décomplexé, ce lycéen des beaux quartiers devient objet de convoitise dans le Milieu gay sitôt la nuit tombée. Lorsque sa meilleure amie lui propose l’emploi de baby-sitter pour ses petites sœurs, l’adolescent pénètre l’intimité de la famille d’Orman ; et celle du père, notamment. Si ce livre pourrait être placé sous le signe de Marivaux, le ton vif et féroce n’est pas sans rappeler les Liaisons de Laclos et inscrit ce roman dans la veine libertine du XVIIIe – en quoi elle nous est familière –, à la mode des méchantes mœurs d'aujourd’hui.

20 The Garden Party and Other Stories - Lorna Sage & Katherine Mansfield
Auteur : Lorna Sage & Katherine Mansfield
Genre : Classiques
Innovative, startlingly perceptive and aglow with colour, these fifteen stories were written towards the end of Katherine Mansfield's tragically short life. Many are set in the author's native New Zealand, others in England and the French Riviera. All are revelations of the unspoken, half-understood emotions that make up everyday experience - from the blackly comic 'The Daughters of the Late Colonel', and the short, sharp sketch 'Miss Brill', in which a lonely woman's precarious sense of self is brutally destroyed, to the vivid impressionistic evocation of family life in 'At the Bay'. 'All that I write,' Mansfield said, 'all that I am - is on the borders of the sea. It is a kind of playing.'

Naomi Klein, author of the #1 international bestsellers, The Shock Doctrine and No Logo, returns with This Changes Everything, a must-read on how the climate crisis needs to spur transformational political change

We seem to have given up on any serious effort to prevent catastrophic climate change. Despite mounting scientific evidence, denialism is surging in many wealthy countries, and extreme fossil-fuel extraction gathers pace. Exposing the work of ideologues on the right who know the challenge this poses to the free market all too well, Naomi Klein also challenges the failing strategies of environmental groups. This Changes Everything argues that the deep changes required should not be viewed as punishments to fear, but as a kind of gift. It's time to stop running from the full implications of the crisis and begin to embrace them.

“The Redbreast certainly ranks with the best of current American crime fiction.”
—Washington Post

No disrespect meant to Henning Mankell and Stieg Larsson, but Jo Nesbø, the New York Times bestselling author of The Snowman, is the most exciting Scandinavian thriller writer in the crime fiction business. The Redbreast is a fabulous installment in Nesbø’s tough-as-nails series protagonist, Oslo police detective Harry Hole. A brilliant and epic novel, breathtaking in its scope and design—winner of The Glass Key for best Nordic crime novel and selected as the best Norwegian crime novel ever written by members of Norway’s book clubs

Incidents
50 Les Incidents de la nuit - Tome 1 - David B.
Auteur : David B.
Genre : BD et mangas
Dans Les Incidents de la nuit, série commencé en 1999, qui avait fait l’objet de trois Mimolettes, David B. abordait Paris par le biais du rêve, de la littérature et de l’autobiographie. Guidé par ses cauchemars, il se lance à la poursuite d’Emile Travers, héros de la bataille de Waterloo qui hante la capitale et se refuse à mourir, relançant sans cesse la parution d’un journal écrit par de futurs fantômes relatant des faits fantastiques ou ésotériques en les présentant comme authentiques. Faisant l’objet d’une nouvelle édition et appelée à se poursuivre en Ciboulette, cette fresque, en mêlant les personnages emblématiques de la mythologie, de la vie privée de l’auteur et de l’histoire criminelle de Paris, dévoile un autre visage de l’autobiographie, celui qui ferme les yeux.
