David Bowie was a master of artifice and reinvention. In that same spirit, illustrator María Hesse and writer Fran Ruiz have created a vivid retelling of the life of David Robert Jones, from his working-class childhood to glam rock success to superstardom, concluding with the final recording sessions after his cancer diagnosis. Narrated from the rock star’s point of view, Bowie colorfully renders both the personal and the professional turning points in a life marked by evolution and innovation. We see Bowie facing the sorrow of his brother’s mental illness, kicking a cocaine habit while other musicians succumbed to deadly overdoses, contending with a tumultuous love life, and radiating joy as a father. Along the way, he describes how he shattered the boundaries of song and society with a counterculture cast that included Iggy Pop, Brian Eno, and Freddie Mercury—as well as his own creations, Ziggy Stardust and the Thin White Duke. Evocatively illustrated from start to finish, Bowie is a stellar tribute to an inimitable star.

(Wall Street Journal) "Powerful." --USA Today "Full of captivating personal anecdotes from inside the national security vault." --Washington Post "Superb, smart, and succinct." --Forbes BASED ON THE INCREDIBLE GRADUATION SPEECH WITH OVER 14 MILLION VIEWS ON YOUTUBE If you want to change the world, start off by making your bed. On May 17, 2014, Admiral William H. McRaven addressed the graduating class of the University of Texas at Austin on their Commencement day. Taking inspiration from the university's slogan, "What starts here changes the world," he shared the ten principles he learned during Navy Seal training that helped him overcome challenges not only in his training and long Naval career, but also throughout his life; and he explained how anyone can use these basic lessons to change themselves-and the world-for the better. Admiral McRaven's original speech went viral with over 10 million views. Building on the core tenets laid out in his speech, McRaven now recounts tales from his own life and from those of people he encountered during his military service who dealt with hardship and made tough decisions with determination, compassion, honor, and courage. Told with great humility and optimism, this timeless book provides simple wisdom, practical advice, and words of encouragement that will inspire readers to achieve more, even in life's darkest moments.

Goliarda Sapienza's The Art of Joy was written over a nine year span, from 1967 to 1976. At the time of her death in 1996, Sapienza had published nothing in a decade, having been unable to find a publisher for what was to become her most celebrated work, due to its perceived immorality. One publisher's rejection letter exclaimed: 'It's a pile of iniquity.' The manuscript lay for decades in a chest finally being proclaimed a "forgotten masterpiece" when it was eventually published in 2005. This epic Sicilian novel, which begins in the year 1900 and follows its main character, Modesta, through nearly the entire span of the 20th century, is at once a coming-of-age novel, a tale of sexual adventure and discovery, a fictional autobiography, and a sketch of Italy's moral, political and social past. Born in a small Sicilian village and orphaned at age nine, Modesta spends her childhood in a convent raised by nuns.Through sheer cunning, she manages to escape, and eventually becomes a princess. Sensual, proud, and determined, Modesta wants to discover the infinite richness of life and sets about destroying all social barriers that impede her quest for the fulfilment of her desires. She seduces both men and women, and even murder becomes acceptable as a means of removing an obstacle to happiness and self-discovery. Goliarda Sapienza (1924-1996) was born in Catania, Sicily in 1924, in an anarchist socialist family. At sixteen, she entered the Academy of Dramatic Arts in Rome and worked under the direction of Luchino Visconti, Alessandro Blasetti and Francesco Maselli. She is the author of several novels published during her lifetime: Lettera Aperta (1967), Il Filo Di Mezzogiorno (1969), L'Università di Reibbia (1983), Le Certezze Del Dubbio (1987). L'Arte Della Gioia is considered her masterpiece.

Sue Grafton ups the ante for private investigator Kinsey Millhone like never before in this “taut, terrifying, transfixing”* #1 New York Times bestselling mystery in the Alphabet series. Kinsey Millhone's elderly neighbor, Gus Vronsky, may have been the original inspiration for the term “Grumpy Gus.” A miser and a hoarder, Gus is so crotchety that after he takes a bad fall, his only living relative is anxious to find someone to take care of him and get back home as soon as she can. To help, Kinsey runs a check on the applicant, Solana Rojas. Social security, driver's license, nursing certification: It all checks out. And it sounds like she did a good job for her former employers. So Kinsey gives her the thumbs-up, figuring Gus will be the ideal assignment for this diligent, experienced caregiver. And the real Solana Rojas was indeed an excellent caregiver. But the woman who has stolen her identity is not, and for her, Gus will be the ideal victim... “The best and strongest book in the series...Solana is one of the most evil, calculating characters Grafton has created.”—*USA Today

Fifth volume of the collection, and it’s almost a new series that begins, without ever losing any of what makes its strength or its charm. In this volume of the Collection you will find books 13 to 15, and our heroes’ life has been irretrievably changed with the disappearance of future Earth and Galaxity. Lacking work, they become freelance spies in the 80s in On the Frontiers. Lacking money, they’re reluctant arms dealers in The Living Weapons. Lacking options, they turn investigators slash bait on corrupt Rubanis in The Circles of Power. The apparent descent into hell of the two former agents is the chance for the authors to study the ambiguities of our world, either directly or through the lens of alien civilisations; along with the ambiguity – pragmatism versus heroism – of the titular character, saved from a fall from grace by his ever irreproachable partner.

"Écrire a toujours été pour moi une manière d’interagir avec le monde. Grâce aux mots, je transmets mes sentiments, mes peurs, mais aussi mon univers" Sept jeunes auteurs entre douze et dix-sept ans ont pris la plume pour écrire une nouvelle qui leur ressemble. Ils nous emmènent dans les tranchées un soir de Noël, ou dans l’Angleterre victorienne, nous font découvrir des sociétés futuristes, nous accompagnent dans la fin de l’enfance, ou dans les pas d’une aveugle, nous plongent dans la guerre, encore. Ils nous dérangent, nous bouleversent, nous interrogent, nous remuent. Lisez-les. Ce prix a été créé en mémoire de Clara, décédée subitement à l’âge de 13 ans des suites d’une malformation cardiaque. Destiné aux adolescents qui, comme elle, aiment lire et écrire, il est décerné par un jury présidé par Erik Orsenna et composé de personnalités du monde des lettres et de l’édition. La vocation du prix Clara est caritative. Les bénéfices de la vente de la vente de ce livre seront versés à l’Association pour la Recherche en Cardiologie du Fœtus à l’Adulte (ARCFA) de l’hôpital Necker-Enfants malades.

Le sexisme au travail existe toujours. Seulement il se voit souvent moins tellement il est intériorisé même par les femmes. Ce guide pratique aide les femmes à ne plus être victime d'attitudes discriminantes et à oser s'imposer professionnellement. A éliminer le plafond de verre et à investir les univers confisqués. Il n'y a pas que le salaire inférieur à poste égal. Il est connu par exemple qu'une des raisons pour lesquelles le Who's who compte plus d'hommes que de femmes est que ces dernières refusent souvent d'y apparaître si leurs maris n'y figurent pas. Et ce n'est pas une question de génération ou de "vieille garde". Le sexisme de la Sillicon Valley et des start-up est connu et dénoncé cf. Les Echos magazine du 25/08/2017 : en matière de création d'entreprise, les femmes lèvent 40 fois moins d'argent que les hommes ; en informatique, chez les développeurs, les contributions des femmes y sont plus souvent validées que celles des hommes, sauf... quand leur genre est connu !
