Isabelle a 32 ans, un chihuahua nain prénommé Woody-Allen et une carrière d’actrice comparable à celle du Titanic : prometteuse en théorie, catastrophique en pratique. Le jour où elle refuse la demande en mariage de l’homme qu’elle aime, sous prétexte qu’elle ne veut pas d’enfant, elle se retrouve à la rue, avec pour toute fortune vingt-quatre euros sur son compte en banque. Elle est alors forcée d’accepter le seul travail qu’on lui propose : utiliser ses talents de comédienne pour séduire Jan Kozlowski, un jeune veuf sur le point de se remarier. La voilà donc partie en Italie, dans la maison de vacances de la richissime et déjantée famille Kozlowski. Seule ombre aux deux semaines de dolce vita qui se profilent : pour exécuter en toute discrétion sa mission « séduction », Isabelle devra jouer le rôle de l’irréprochable nanny anglaise de Nicolas, 8 ans, qui n’a pas prononcé un seul mot depuis la mort de sa mère cinq ans plus tôt. Isabelle est bien loin d’imaginer à quel point cette rencontre improbable avec ce petit garçon blessé par la vie va bouleverser sa vision du monde. Une comédie pétillante, pleine d’humour et d’émotions. Âgée de 31 ans, Marie Vareille a reçu le prix Confidentielles pour Je peux très bien me passer de toi (Charleston, 2015) et le Prix du meilleur roman jeunesse du Parisien pour Élia, la Passeuse d’âmes (PKJ, 2016). Là où tu iras j’irai est son quatrième roman.

INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER In this utterly charming debut—perfect for fans of Cecelia Ahern’s P.S., I Love You and Allison Winn Scotch’s Time of My Life—one woman sets out to complete her old list of childhood goals, and finds that her lifelong dreams lead her down a path she never expects. 1. Go to Paris 2. Have a baby, maybe two 3. Fall in love Brett Bohlinger seems to have it all: a plum job, a spacious loft, an irresistibly handsome boyfriend. All in all, a charmed life. That is, until her beloved mother passes away, leaving behind a will with one big stipulation: In order to receive her inheritance, Brett must first complete the life list of goals she’d written when she was a naïve girl of fourteen. Grief-stricken, Brett can barely make sense of her mother’s decision—her childhood dreams don’t resemble her ambitions at age thirty-four in the slightest. Some seem impossible. How can she possibly have a relationship with a father who died seven years ago? Other goals (Be an awesome teacher!) would require her to reinvent her entire future. As Brett reluctantly embarks on a perplexing journey in search of her adolescent dreams, one thing becomes clear. Sometimes life’s sweetest gifts can be found in the most unexpected places. Praise for The Life List “A wonderful, touching story that reminds us to live life to its fullest.”—Cecelia Ahern, New York Times bestselling author of P.S., I Love You “Spielman’s debut charms.”—Kirkus Reviews “You won’t want to miss Lori Nelson Spielman’s remarkable debut, an intensely emotional novel of transformation and trust.

Witty and inspiring, this divine debut novel dares to ask a material girl—and the rest of us—what makes life precious.

For readers of The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared, a funny, charming, feel-good story about a fake fakir from India who arrives in France to shop at IKEA and unwittingly embarks on a European tour like no other. Meet Ajatashatru Oghash Rathod. One day a fakir leaves his small village in India and lands in Paris. A professional con artist, the fakir is on a pilgrimage to IKEA, where he intends to obtain an object he covets above all others: a brand-new bed of nails. Without adequate euros in the pockets of his silk trousers, the fakir is all the same confident that his counterfeit 100-Euro note (printed on one side only) and his usual bag of tricks will suffice. But when a swindled cab driver seeks his murderous revenge, the fakir accidentally embarks on a European tour, fatefully beginning in the wardrobe of the iconic Swedish retailer. As his journey progresses in the most unpredictable of ways, the fakir finds unlikely friends in even unlikelier places. To his surprise--and to a Bollywood beat--the stirrings of love well up in the heart of our turbaned hero, even as his adventures lead to profound and moving questions of the perils of emigration and the universal desire to seek a better life in an often dangerous world. The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir Who Got Trapped in an IKEA Wardrobe [pause for breath] is a hilarious tale that evokes the manic energy of a Marx Brothers romp and calls to mind the incisive social commentary of Candide. Pull up your Poang chair and take an unforgettable tour of Europe propelled by laughter, love and redemption. (Meatballs not included, but highly recommended.)

The international bestseller based on a haunting true story that raises provocative questions about complicity, guilt, and survival. They called it the Wolfsschanze, the Wolf’s Lair. “Wolf” was his nickname. As hapless as Little Red Riding Hood, I had ended up in his belly. A legion of hunters was out looking for him, and to get him in their grips they would gladly slay me as well. Germany, 1943: Twenty-six-year-old Rosa Sauer’s parents are gone, and her husband Gregor is far away, fighting on the front lines of World War II. Impoverished and alone, she makes the fateful decision to leave war-torn Berlin to live with her in-laws in the countryside, thinking she’ll find refuge there. But one morning, the SS come to tell her she has been conscripted to be one of Hitler’s tasters: three times a day, she and nine other women go to his secret headquarters, the Wolf’s Lair, to eat his meals before he does. Forced to eat what might kill them, the tasters begin to divide into The Fanatics, those loyal to Hitler, and the women like Rosa who insist they aren’t Nazis, even as they risk their lives every day for Hitler’s. As secrets and resentments grow, this unlikely sisterhood reaches its own dramatic climax, as everyone begins to wonder if they are on the wrong side of history.

Pourquoi un "Dictionnaire intime" de la Bible ? L'auteur associe l'approche religieuse et philosophique, cherche dans certaines scènes de la Bible des représentations de la condition humaine et nous donne à voir l'émotion, la poésie et la beauté littéraire des textes bibliques. C'est aussi l'occasion pour lui de capter l'attention, de transmettre les connaissances, de développer les notions essentielles, de faire connaître les idées, de visiter les lieux. En un mot : de faire partager l'amour du Livre. Salomon Malka nous propose une approche personnelle des textes. Un bel hommage au premier livre de notre histoire et avant tout à la littérature.
