« Cherche volontaire pour concours de baisers » Pour cette fin d’année, Juliette avait prévu beaucoup de choses. Des vacances romantiques à la Barbade, un immense sapin à décorer avec Simon, son amoureux, et peut-être même une demande en mariage. Elle n’avait pas prévu en revanche de soudain redevenir célibataire, d’annuler ses congés pour organiser un gala de charité avec le célèbre rocker Evan MacNeil et d’être inscrite par ses amis à un concours de baisers. Alors, quand le musicien lui propose d’être son partenaire, elle se laisse convaincre. Car, même s’il est l’un des célibataires les plus convoités, même s’il se débat encore avec le deuil de son frère et sa nièce de moins d’un an qui n’a plus que lui, Evan parvient à la mettre en confiance. À tel point qu’elle en viendrait presque à abaisser le mur de glace qu’elle a érigé autour de son cœur... À propos de l'autrice Révélée par la série phénomène "Dear You" et confirmée par le succès de chacun de ses nouveaux titres, Emily Blaine est devenue, avec plus de 600 000 exemplaires vendus, la reine incontestée de la romance moderne à la française. Bretonne de cœur et parisienne d'adoption, elle envisage l'écriture comme un plaisir et, malgré son succès impressionnant, met un point d'honneur à rester proche de ses lectrices et à ne pas se prendre trop au sérieux.

Rapatrié d’Afrique, Hugo, le narrateur revient au village où il a passé les étés de son enfance. Alice Almeida, une femme qu’il a aimée mais qu’il n’a pas vue depuis seize ans, lui a adressé une lettre étrange et alarmante. Il se rend dans sa maison : les lieux sont dévastés, un drame s’y est produit. Internée à quelques kilomètres de là, Alice n’est plus que l’ombre d’elle-même, murée dans le silence, délabrée, folle. Avec patience et obstination, Hugo tente de renouer avec elle. À l’errance intérieure d’Alice répond en écho la solitude du narrateur qui a vécu lui aussi une expérience extrême : parti enquêter dans le désert de l’Aïr sur une disparition, il y fut grièvement blessé, puis veillé et soigné par une femme touarègue. Au fil des jours, le récit ensorcelant de cette « nuit touarègue » finit par planer sur les amants d’autrefois et mystérieusement sceller leurs retrouvailles. Alice sort peu à peu de son mutisme, son histoire se réécrit par violents soubresauts. Fragile, ténue, la vie se fraie un chemin.

Yuko Akita had two passions. Haiku and snow. It is April 1884 and Yuko Akita has reached his seventeenth birthday on the Island of Hokkaid in the North of Japan. The time has come to choose his vocation, warrior or monk, but against the wishes of his father, Yuko settles on a third option: he will be a poet. Yuko begins to write the seventeen-syllable poems we know as haiku--all celebrating the beauty of snow, his one great subject. One day, the Imperial Poet arrives from the Emperor's court. He has heard about the beauty of Yuko's poems and has come to meet the young poet himself. While agreeing the poems have a music all their own, the Imperial Poet notes that lacking color, Yuko's poems are destined to remain invisible to the world. If the young poet is to learn color, he must study with the great artist Soseki in the south of Japan. Yuko sets off on a treacherous journey across the whole of Japan. Cold, hungry, and exhausted, he encounters a vision that will forever change his life. It is a woman, frozen in the ice. With pale gold hair, ice blue eyes and a face as white as snow, the dead beauty will obsess Yuko. Who was she? How did she come to meet her death in the depths of his beloved snow? Arriving at Soseki's door, Yuko is shocked to discover that the great master of color is blind. He will gradullay come to learn that color is not something outside of us, but within us. He will also learn about his master's Samurai past...and Soseki's link to the woman in the snow. It is a beautiful love story which will have its echo in Yuko's own as he finds his own, living, daughter of snow.... With stunning visual images created out of minimalist prose, Snow is as delicate and inspiring as the haiku poetry it celebrates and emulates. A swift and refreshing read, the novel treats readers to a gorgeous love story while gently floating ideas such as what is the nature of art and perception? What is the place of passion in art and in life? Highly romantic and gracefully written, Snow is destined to become a cult classic.

Winner of the National Book Award and National Book Critics Circle Award "A charming book about enchantment, a profound book about fairy tales."—John Updike, The New York Times Book Review Bruno Bettelheim was one of the great child psychologists of the twentieth century and perhaps none of his books has been more influential than this revelatory study of fairy tales and their universal importance in understanding childhood development. Analyzing a wide range of traditional stories, from the tales of Sindbad to “The Three Little Pigs,” “Hansel and Gretel,” and “The Sleeping Beauty,” Bettelheim shows how the fantastical, sometimes cruel, but always deeply significant narrative strands of the classic fairy tales can aid in our greatest human task, that of finding meaning for one’s life.

"I hold this book to be the most important expression which the present age has found; it is a book to which we are all indebted, and from which none of us can escape." T.S. Eliot Ulysses depicts a day in Leopold Bloom’s life, broken into episodes analogous to Homer’s Odyssey and related in rich, varied styles. Joyce’s novel is celebrated for its depth of learning, earthy humor, literary allusions and piercing insight into the human heart. First published in Paris in 1922 Ulysses was not published in the United States until 1934. Immediately recognized as an extraordinary work that both echoed the history of English literature and took it in new, unheralded directions, Joyce’s book was controversial. Its widespread release was initially slowed by censors nitpicking a few passages. The novel is challenging, in that it is an uncommon reader who will perceive all that Joyce has put into his pages upon first reading, but it is uniquely rewarding for anyone willing to follow where the author leads. Far more than a learned exercise in literary skill, Ulysses displays a sense of humor that ranges from delicate to roguish as well as sequences of striking beauty and emotion. Chief among the latter must be the novel’s climactic stream of consciousness step into the mind of the protagonist’s wife, Molly Bloom, whose open-hearted acceptance of life and love is among the most memorable and moving passages in English literature. With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Ulysses is both modern and readable.
