Gavalda, Anna

Billie / Anna Gavalda ; translated from the French by Jennifer Rappaport

New York : Europa, 2019

Résumé: This heartwarming story is about two unlikely friends who give each other the courage to do what they never thought possible. Through their trials and tribulations, they realize that they can always rely on each other to be there. Our story opens with Billie and Franck trapped in a gorge in the Cévennes Mountains. As Franck lies unconscious, Billie appeals to a star for protection by telling stories from their lives. Billie vividly recollects how her friendship with Franck changed her life and struggles with the idea that–thanks to her mistake–she might lose him forever. They met a decade prior when they were assigned as acting partners in class. For the first time, Billie felt someone respected her and Franck didn’t feel so alone. The blossoming of their friendship was comforting for both pitted against the harsh realities they faced. Billie is tough because she has to be: her mother left her when she was just an infant and she lives in poverty with her abusive father and stepmother. Franck is more reserved, afraid to reveal who he really is to his unemployed homophobic father for fear of being rejected. Together Billie and Franck rescue each other. These two outcasts find a home together in Anna Gavalda’s moving portrayal of platonic love and how far two people are willing to go for each other. Quirky, but gritty, this charming and emotional ode is for anyone who has felt the transformative power of friendship.

Résumé: Entre réalité et fiction, Touch Me Not suit le parcours émotionnel de Laura, Tómas et Christian qui cherchent à apprivoiser leur intimité et leur sexualité. Si cette soif d’intimité – toucher et être touché au sens propre comme au sens figuré – les attire autant qu’elle les effraie, leur désir de se libérer de vieux schémas est plus fort. Espace de réflexion et de transformation, Touch Me Not s’attache à comprendre comment vivre l’intimité de manière totalement inattendue et comment aimer l’autre sans se perdre soi-même. En compétition au festival de Berlin 2018, Touch me not en est reparti avec la consécration suprême, l’Ours d’or, et le prix du meilleur premier film. Cette proposition de cinéma a conquis les deux jurys comme le public. Avec ce film, Adina Pintilie questionne le rapport à notre corps, nos émotions et notre souffrance. Une expérience de spectateur unique dont on sort bouleversé.

Everland / Rebecca Hunt

New York : Europa, 2015

Résumé: 1913. Dinners, Millet-Bass, and Napps—three explorers bound not by friendship, but by a dependence founded on survival—volunteer to leave their ship, the Kismet, and scout an uncharted and unknown island in the Antarctic, which Napps names “Everland.” While all three are enticed by the promise of adventure and reward, they are immortalized by the disastrous outcome of the expedition, their stories preserved for posterity. 2012. Brix, Jess, and Decker—three researchers with their own reasons for being so far from home—set out on a centenary field trip to survey the same island. Their equipment is more advanced than the previous group’s, and their purpose more scientific, but the harsh weather of Everland remains an unpredictable and deadly force: the adventure and the danger are inescapable. Under the harsh ultraviolet light of a sun which doesn’t set, and isolated from the world, they begin to echo the expedition of a hundred years ago. History, it seems, has a way of repeating itself—when theirs is written, what will it say?

Greenland, Seth

I regret everything : a love story / Seth Greenland

New York : Europa, 2015

Résumé: Life is an often-confusing mixture of heartache and hilarity, or so prove Seth Greenland’s appealing characters in this tenderly comedic story of modern love. Imbued with Greenland’s signature wit, I Regret Everything confronts the oceanic uncertainty of what it means to be young and alive. Jeremy Best, a Manhattan-based trusts and estates lawyer, has a second life as the poet Jinx Bell. To his boss’s daughter, Spaulding, Jeremy, at 33, is at first, already halfway to dead. When Spaulding, an aspiring 19-year-old writer, discovers Mr. Best’s alter writerly ego, the two become bound by a devotion to poetry. Their budding relationship offers them the possibility of enduring love, or the threat of tragic loss. A skilled wordsmith with a talent for telling humor, Greenland creates fully realized characters, people that come to understand themselves as complex renderings of the human condition—at its often best, and sometimes worst. I Regret Everything explores happiness and heartache with a healthy dose of skepticism, and an understanding that the reality of love encompasses life, death, iambic pentameter, regret, trusts and estates.

Mayumi and the sea / Jennifer Tseng

New York : Europa, 2015

Résumé: Books may be Mayumi Saito’s greatest love and her one source of true pleasure. Forty-one years old, disenchanted wife and dutiful mother, Mayumi’s work as a librarian on a small island off the coast of New England feeds her passion for reading and provides her with many occasions for wry observations on human nature, but it does little to remedy the mundanity of her days. That is, until the day she issues a library card to a shy seventeen-year-old boy and swiftly succumbs to a sexual obsession that subverts the way she sees the library, her family, the island she lives on, and ultimately herself. Wary of the consequences of following through on her fantasies, Mayumi hesitates at first. But she cannot keep the young man from her thoughts. After a summer of overlong glances and nervous chitchat in the library, she finally accepts that their connection is undeniable. In a sprawling house emptied of its summer vacationers, their affair is consummated and soon consolidated thanks to an explosive charge of erotic energy. Mayumi’s life is radically enriched by the few hours each week that she shares with the young man, and as their bond grows stronger thanks not only to their physical closeness but also to their long talks about the books they both love, those hours spent apart seem to Mayumi increasingly bleak and intolerable. As her obsession worsens, in a frantic attempt to become closer to the young man, Mayumi nervously befriends another librarian patron, the young man’s mother. The two women forge a tenuous friendship that will prove vital to both in the most unexpected ways when catastrophe strikes. Exquisitely written, Mayumi and the Sea of Happiness is part wry confession, part serious meditation. At its most anxious, it’s a book about time, at its most ecstatic, it’s a deeply human story about pleasure.

Di Grado, Viola

Hollow heart / Viola Di Grado ; translated from the Italien by Anthony Shugaar

New York : Europa, 2015

Résumé: A courageous, inventive, and intelligent novel from the author of 70% Acrylic 30% Wool In this courageous, inventive, and intelligent novel, Viola di Grado tells the story of a suicide and what follows. She has given voice to an astonishing vision of life after life, portraying the awful longing and sense of loss that plague the dead, together with the solitude provoked by the impossibility of communicating. The afterlife itself is seen as a dark, seething place where one is preyed upon by the cruel and unrelenting elements. The Hollow Heart will frighten as it provokes, enlighten as it causes concern. If ever there were a novel that follows Kafka’s prescription for a book to be a axe for the frozen sea within us, it is the Hollow Heart.

Résumé: Se gli anni Ottanta resteranno per sempre una pietra miliare nella storia del costume e della cultura del secolo scorso, di certo gli Spandau Ballet rappresentano, con i loro 25 milioni di dischi venduti nel mondo e 23 singoli in hit parade, una delle band più iconiche, sconvolgenti e rivoluzionarie di quello straordinario decennio. Tony Hadley, Steve Norman, John Keeble e i fratelli Martin e Gary Kemp vengono così raccontati, attraverso filmati personali e materiale recentemente riportato alla luce, in quello che è l’affresco emozionante, intenso e possente di un’intera epoca che ha fatto storia. Dal costume alla musica, dai film alle tendenze, gli anni Ottanta hanno creato un mondo capace di scatenare emozioni e di lasciar sbizzarrire l’immaginario comune.

Résumé: Le nouveau documentaire de Marie-Monique Robin est avant tout l’histoire d’une cassure. Entre les décideurs politiques et une partie de la population réticente à se laisser imposer les doxas libérales, les visions du monde tel qu’il doit être mené semblent irréconciliables. Lorsque les premiers ne jurent que par la croissance, répétant le terme comme une formule incantatoire, les seconds espèrent en d'autres solutions et réfutent le productivisme et la consommation à tout prix. Les experts intervenant dans le film sont formels : sous la forme qu'elle a connue au XXe siècle, la croissance est terminée, elle ne reviendra pas. De nombreux paramètres ne leur laissent aucun doute, dont la fin de l’ère des énergies bon marché ou la dépendance croissante à la dette. "Celui qui pense qu’une croissance exponentielle infinie est possible dans un monde fini est soit un fou soit un économiste" déclare un... économiste, non sans humour. Alors, pendant que les États s’enfoncent dans la crise, des insoumis créent les prémices d’une société fondée sur la sauvegarde écologique et le développement durable. Avec Sacrée croissance !, la réalisatrice présente une sélection d’initiatives réussies et de modèles alternatifs viables. Son film élargit ainsi le champ des possibles en montrant comment on peut réfuter en action, et pas seulement en paroles, le modèle économique dominant. Avec une idée force : face au gaspillage mondial, la réponse doit être locale et solidaire. À Toronto, une coopérative de fermiers produit des légumes bio près du centre-ville et vise la souveraineté alimentaire. À Rosario (Argentine), on lutte contre l’exclusion sociale en fertilisant d'anciennes décharges pour embaucher des maraîchers débutants. Certains villages népalais s’approchent de l’autosuffisance énergétique grâce au biogaz et à la micro-hydro-électricité. Au Brésil ou en Bavière, des banques communautaires et des monnaies locales bouleversent le rapport à l’argent d’un public qui se fait "prosommateur" (producteur et consommateur). Quant au Bhoutan, il développe une politique publique révolutionnaire instaurant le concept du "Bonheur national brut" (BNB). "L’abondance matérielle finira par s’arrêter", rappelle un des intervenants. Et c'est avant qu'il faut changer de paradigme économique, insiste Marie-Monique Robin.

The wild things / Dave Eggers ; based upon the screenplay Were the wild things are ; screenplay by Spike Jonze and Dave Eggers ; based on the book by Maurice Sendak

New York : Vintage books, 2010

Résumé: Max is a rambunctious eight-year-old whose world is changing around him: His father is absent, his mother is increasingly distracted, and his teenage sister has outgrown him. Sad and angry, Max dons his wolf suit and makes terrible, ruinous mischief, flooding his sister’s room and driving his mother half-crazy. Convinced his family doesn’t want him anymore, Max flees home, finds a boat and sails away. Arriving on an island, he meets strange and giant creatures who rage and break things, who trample and scream. These beasts do everything Max feels inside, and so, Max appoints himself their king. Here, on a magnificent adventure with these funny and complex monsters, Max can be the wildest thing of all. In this visionary adaptation of Maurice Sendak’s classic work, Dave Eggers brings an imaginary world vividly to life, telling the story of a lonely boy navigating the emotional journey away from boyhood.

The worst intention / Alessandro Piperno ; translated from the Italien by Ann Goldstein

New York : Europa, 2007

Résumé: Daniel is the thirty-three-year-old heir to the checkered fortunes of the Sonninos, a Jewish-Italian family whose staggering rise and fall provides the backdrop to this remarkable tragicomedy. Daniel is on bad terms with himself, having inerited both his grandfather's extravagant passions and his father's glum servility. He is prone to the excess typical of his class—despite his family's crumbling textile empire—and is victim of a crippling infatuation with Gaia, the fountainhead of his erotic fantasties and fetishes. In Piperno's urgent, explosive writing, Daniel Sonnino emerges as an unlikely hero in a modern saga of personal liberty and public ritual, love and war, sex and betrayal, sin and forgiveness, set in the opulent neighborhoods of contemporary Rome. Winner of the prestigious 2005 Campiello Prize for Best First Novel and the 2005 Viareggio Prize, The Worse Intentions was the most talked-about debut for an Italian novelist in decades. It sold 80,000 copies in its first two weeks of publication, prompting Italy's leading daily newspaper to describe it as "a dangerous novel...Right from the title, this daring book proclaims the furiously bellicose and iconoclastic spirit that drives it." (La Repubblica) Reminiscent of Philip Roth's Portnoy's Complaint, The Worst Intentions is a lavish, important novel by one of Italy's most talented and promising young writers.
