Black Isle


A sweeping story of ghosts in the modern world, and one woman's struggle to create her own destiny.Uprooted from Shanghai with her father and twin brother, young Cassandra finds the Black Isle's bustling, immigrant-filled seaport, swampy jungle, and grand rubber plantations a sharp contrast to the city of her childhood. And she soon makes another discovery: the Black Isle is swarming with ghosts.Haunted and lonely, Cassandra at first tries to ignore her ability to see the restless apparitions that drift down the street and crouch in cold corners at school. Yet despite her struggles with these spirits, Cassandra comes to love her troubled new home. And soon, she attracts the notice of a dangerously charismatic man.Even as she becomes a fearless young woman, the Isle's dark forces won't let her go. War is looming, and Cassandra wonders if her unique gift might be her beloved island's only chance for salvation. . .Taking readers from the 1920s, through the Japanese occupation during WWII, to the Isle's radical transformation into a gleaming cosmopolitan city, THE BLACK ISLE is a sweeping epic--a deeply imagined, fiercely original tale from a vibrant new voice in fiction.

La Vie Mode d´Emploi


La Vie mode d'emploi est un livre extraordinaire, d'une importance capitale non seulement dans la création de l'auteur, mais dans notre littérature, par son ampleur, son organisation, la richesse de ses informations, la cocasserie de ses inventions, par l'ironie qui le travaille de bout en bout sans en chasser la tendresse, par sa forme d'art enfin : un réalisme baroque qui confine au burlesque. (Jacqueline Piatier, Le Monde) L'ironie, trs douce, imperceptible, fantomatique, moirée, faite d'un détachement extrme, d'une méticulosité et d'une patience qui deviennent de l'amour... En résumé, c'est un prodigieux livre-brocante, qu'on visite sans se presser, la fois livre fourre-tout, livre promenade. (Jacques©Pierre Amette, Le Point) Et cela donne des romans exotiques, extravagants, des crimes parfaits, des fables érudites, des catalogues, des affaires de moeurs, de sombres histoires de magie noire, des confidences de coureurs cyclistes... Jeux de miroirs et tables gigognes, entrez dans cet immeuble et vous ferez le tour du monde. Un vertige majuscule. Quand on en sort, on est léger comme une montgolfire. (Catherine David, Le Nouvel Observateur) En quelques centaines de pages, fruits de neuf années de travail, Perec opre le ratissage délibéré, systématique, hallucinant du champ romanesque contemporain. Son livre est, sans doute, la littérature ce que le Robert est la lexicographie. (Oatrick Thévenon, L'express)

Les misérables +CD


C'est un tel classique qu'on a toujours l'impression de l'avoir déjà lu... ou vu : avec Michel Bouquet dans le rôle de Javert, ou bien Depardieu. Relire donc Les Misérables, publié par Victor Hugo en 1862, offre le plaisir de la reconnaissance et du recommencement. Toujours on sera emporté par la tension romanesque du livre, ses figures inoubliables, ses langues multiples - n'oublions pas que Hugo est le premier à introduire l'argot et la langue populaire dans le français écrit -, ses histoires et son temps. De la récidive malheureuse de Jean Valjean, frais libéré du bagne, à sa progressive rédemption, de l'enfance désastreuse de Cosette à son idylle avec Marius, de la figure sacrificielle de Fantine aux personnages sinistres de Thénardier et de Javert, le roman propose une belle leçon d'humanité vivante. "Je viens détruire la fatalité humaine, écrit Hugo, je condamne l'esclavage, je chasse la misère, j'enseigne l'ignorance, je traite la maladie, j'éclaire la nuit, je hais la haine. Voilà ce que je suis et voilà pourquoi j'ai fait Les Misérables." --Céline Darner

Nice Girls Don`t get the Corner Office


For every professional woman who wants to get ahead - but feels she is at an impasse - NICE GIRLS DON'T GET THE CORNER OFFICE comes to the rescue. Although it's more politically correct for women to point the finger outwardly when assessing why they
are overlooked for promotions and assignments for which they are superbly qualified, the real answers may lie inward. In this book, Dr Lois Frankel, an internationally recognised corporate coach and author, reveals the 101 self-sabotaging behaviours
women learn as girls - behaviours and habits that are now holding them back in the workplace, such as couching statements as questions, tilting your head when you speak, waiting to be noticed and pinching company pennies. From executive to entry leve
l, every woman needs to know what she is doing to subconsciously sound, look, act, market herself, and/or be treated like a 'girl'. This book will help women to become aware of when and how they are damaging their careers and it will give them the ad
vice and tips they need to help replace these self- defeating behaviours with more effective ones - and finally claim that corner office.
