La chute du Mur a laissé les gauches européennes en plein désarroi. Sur le champ de bataille des idées, le progrès, la liberté et l'universel ont cédé la place à une nouvelle triade directement importée des USA : le genre, l'identité et la race. On se battait hier au nom du prolétariat, du Tiers-monde et des damnés de la terre ; on condamne aujourd’hui l'homme blanc, coupable du colonialisme, de l’esclavage et de la domination des femmes. Trois discours – néo-féministe, antiraciste et décolonial - le désignent comme l’ennemi commun de l’humanité. Il est devenu le nouveau Satan, celui que son anatomie même désigne comme violeur ontologique, sa couleur de peau comme raciste, sa puissance comme exploiteur de tous les « dominés » et « racisés ». Tout l'enjeu de cet essai est d'analyser comment, sous l'impulsion d’une américanisation caricaturale de l’Europe, la lutte des genres et celle des races sont en train de remplacer la lutte des classes, de balayer la méritocratie et de détruire l’idée d’humanité commune. Faire de l'homme blanc le bouc émissaire par excellence, ce n’est jamais que remplacer un racisme par un autre ; avec, comme horizon funeste, des sociétés tribalisées, crispées sur leur trésor identitaire et en proie à la guerre de tous contre tous.

Il y a Brody, l’architecte sexy ; Dermot, le prof de philo en slip ; Charlotte, l’amie des bêtes mais pas des gens ; Callum, le rugbyman malentendant ; Elif, la boulimique de romances ; et Maeve, qui préfère collectionner les mecs plutôt que les livres. Au milieu de ces colocataires fantasques et parfois invivables, Ada la solitaire va devoir répondre à trois questions existentielles et plutôt urgentes : - Comment survivre dans cette maison de fous ? - Comment reconstruire sa vie à Dublin, quinze ans après son départ forcé ? - Et comment ne pas tomber amoureuse de Brody Gallagher, le bel Irlandais qu’elle a embauché pour rénover l’appartement de son enfance ? Mais à part ça, tout va bien. *** Ses yeux descendent le long de mon pyjama en pilou. – Certaines images restent gravées à jamais, tu sais ? continue l’emmerdeur. – Laisse-moi deviner… Ma tenue n’est pas à ton goût ? – Il y a vraiment un corps de fille, là-dessous ? Il se marre en tirant sur l’une de mes manches. Je recule d’un pas et, en silence, d’un regard qui tue, lui fais comprendre de ne pas m’approcher. – Désolé, il fallait que je touche ça une fois dans ma vie… sourit-il en levant les mains de chaque côté de sa tête. – Qu’est-ce que ça peut te faire, ce qu’il y a en dessous ? Je ne suis pas ton genre, non ? Et pendant qu’on y est, tu as le droit de porter des fringues, quand tu vis en communauté… sifflé-je alors. – Attends, le débardeur sexy de l’autre soir, c’était juste pour mes beaux yeux ? – Qu’est-ce que tu racontes ? – Tu portes ce truc à capuche quand personne ne te voit… et quasiment rien quand tu sais que je suis dans le coin ? – Il faisait chaud, Gallagher, remets-toi. – Quand même… – Et quand personne ne me voit, je ne porte rien du tout, lui glissé-je. Mais ça, tu n’es pas près de le vérifier… *** Recherche coloc : emmerdeurs, râleurs, lovers… s’abstenir !, d’Emma Green, histoire intégrale.

Readers and critics alike raved over USA Today bestselling author Sally Thorne’s smash hit debut, The Hating Game, which has sold in over 20 countries. Now she’s back with an unforgettable romantic comedy about a woman who finally has a shot at her long time crush—if she dares. Crush (n.): a strong and often short-lived infatuation, particularly for someone beyond your reach… Darcy Barrett has undertaken a global survey of men. She’s travelled the world, and can categorically say that no one measures up to Tom Valeska, whose only flaw is that Darcy’s twin brother Jamie saw him first and claimed him forever as his best friend. Despite Darcy’s best efforts, Tom’s off limits and loyal to her brother, 99%. That’s the problem with finding her dream man at age eight and peaking in her photography career at age twenty—ever since, she’s had to learn to settle for good enough. When Darcy and Jamie inherit a tumble-down cottage from their grandmother, they’re left with strict instructions to bring it back to its former glory and sell the property. Darcy plans to be in an aisle seat halfway across the ocean as soon as the renovations start, but before she can cut and run, she finds a familiar face on her porch: house-flipper extraordinaire Tom’s arrived, he’s bearing power tools, and he’s single for the first time in almost a decade. Suddenly Darcy’s considering sticking around to make sure her twin doesn’t ruin the cottage’s inherent magic with his penchant for grey and chrome. She’s definitely not staying because of her new business partner’s tight t-shirts, or that perfect face that's inspiring her to pick up her camera again. Soon sparks are flying—and it’s not the faulty wiring. It turns out one percent of Tom’s heart might not be enough for Darcy anymore. This time around, she’s switching things up. She’s going to make Tom Valeska 99 percent hers. This next hilarious romance includes a special PS section with two Happily Ever Afters—one for this novel featuring Darcy and Tom and the other, an epilogue featuring fan favorites Lucy Hutton and Josh Templeman from The Hating Game!

From the USA Today bestselling author of The Hating Game and 99 Percent Mine comes the clever, funny, and unforgettable story of a muscular, tattooed man hired as an assistant to two old women—under the watchful eye of a beautiful retirement home manager. Dazzle (n): Brightness that blinds someone temporarily. Position Vacant: Two ancient old women residing at Providence Retirement Villa seek male assistant for casual exploitation and good-natured humiliation. Duties include boutique shopping, fast-food fetching, and sincerely rendered flattery. Good looks a bonus—but we aren’t picky. An advertisement has been placed (again!) by the wealthy and eccentric Parloni Sisters. The salary is generous and the employers are 90 years old, so how hard could the job be? Well, none have lasted longer than a week. Most boys leave in tears. Ruthie Midona will work in Providence’s front office, and be at the Parloni’s beck and call, forever. That’s sort of her life plan. If Ruthie can run the place in her almost-retired bosses’ absence, with no hijinks/hiccups, she has a shot at becoming the new manager. She might also be able to defend her safe little world from Prescott Development, the new buyer of the prime site. Maybe after all that, she can find a cute guy to date. All she needs to do is stay serious—and that’s what she does best. Until, one day, someone dazzling blows in to town. Teddy Prescott devotes his life to sleeping, tattooing, and avoiding seriousness. When Teddy needs a place to crash, he makes a deal with his developer dad. Teddy can stay in one of Providence’s on-site maintenance cottages—right next door to an unimpressed Ruthie—but only if he works there and starts to grow up. Ruthie knows how this sweetly selfish rich boy can earn his keep—and be out of her hair in under a week. After all, there is a position vacant…

In the meantime, I need to make sure that whatever hold that animal had on her is gone. So, yeah, I’m stealing these moments with her. Savoring them.

Nuclear war, dystopian unrest, a genetic mutation that divides twins in life and unites them in death—the “refreshingly nuanced” (Booklist, starred review) first novel in award-winning poet Francesca Haig’s richly imagined and action-packed post-apocalyptic trilogy “is poised to become the next must-read hit” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review). Four hundred years after a nuclear apocalypse, all humans are born in pairs: the deformed Omegas, who are exploited and oppressed, and their Alpha twins, who have inherited the earth—or what’s left of it. But despite their claims of superiority, the Alphas cannot escape one harsh fact: whenever one twin dies, so does the other. Cass is a rare Omega whose mutation is psychic foresight—not that she needs it to know that as her powerful twin, Zach, ascends the ranks of the ruling Alpha Council, she’s in grave danger. Zach has a devastating plan for Omega annihilation. Cass has visions of an island where a bloody Omega resistance promises a life of freedom. But her real dream is to discover a middle way, one that would bring together the sundered halves of humanity. And that means both the Council and the resistance have her in their sights.

The steady development of queer theory over the last two decades has provided useful analytical tools and the will to dismiss the watchdog of heteronormativity. Modes of reading have evolved, as this volume ofFLS amply attests. Following Bill Edmiston's introduction to the volume — a concise and informative history of queer theory — the fifteen articles reveal, not surprisingly, significant diversity. One deals with queerness in the context of medieval writing where allegorical and euphemistic expression were understood to be irreconcilable. Another treats translations in Early Modern France of an Ovidian fable that had an inconvenient lesbian dimension. Rousseau's fixation on his bottom (e.g., for spankings) points to a queer streak, while Gautier's Mademoiselle de Maupin enhances the theme of sexual misidentity with ornamental figures. The queerness of Sand'sLa Mare au diable emerges in the course of a contrasexual reading. A musicologist investigates the possibility of a lesbian esthetics of music in a work by Erik Satie, while a literary scholar finds evidence of Proust's “outing” inJean Santeuil. Other articles address the sense of gender transformation wrought by sodomy, a revised view on the writing subject in Jean Genet's fiction, the queerness of heterosexuality in the works of Michel Houellebecq, and recurring motifs in recent fiction produced by “gay Paris.” Two of the articles treat activism and esthetics in film.
