Book Summary: 1969. Dans une Amérique agitée par le mouvement pour les droits civiques, Pat Conroy accepte un poste d’enseignant sur une petite île isolée. L’endroit est envoûtant, presque désert et séparé du reste de la Caroline du Sud par un bras de mer. On ne peut s’y rendre qu’en bateau. Une poignée de familles afro-américaines vit ici mais l’île n’a plus d’avenir à offrir à ses enfants. Or le jeune professeur idéaliste découvre avec stupeur que ses élèves sont des laissés-pour-compte du système scolaire, que le niveau est dramatiquement bas et que les châtiments corporels ont toujours cours dans cette école. Pat s’acharne alors à faire rimer apprentissage avec plaisir et à donner à ces enfants une véritable ouverture sur le monde. Mais dans un Sud qui n’en a pas fini avec le racisme, il se heurte sans arrêt à l’immobilisme et au déni d’une administration qui fera tout pour le renvoyer. Dans son style enlevé et plein d’humour, Pat Conroy nous raconte son coup de cœur pour cette île à la beauté sauvage et pour dix-huit enfants qui avaient soif d’apprendre. L’année qui a changé sa vie. « Je devais écrire ce livre pour expliquer ce qui s’était passé et à quel point cela m’avait affecté. » Par le célèbre auteur du Prince des Marées, d’après une histoire vraie.

Book Summary: Pourquoi réunir des textes d’entretiens qui s’étendent presque sur vingt ans ? Il arrive que des pourparlers durent si longtemps qu’on ne sait plus s’ils font encore partie de la guerre ou déjà de la paix. Il est vrai que la philosophie ne se sépare pas d’une colère contre l’époque, mais aussi d’une sérénité qu’elle nous assure. La philosophie cependant n’est pas une Puissance. Les religions, les États, le capitalisme, la science, le droit, l’opinion, la télévision sont des puissances, mais pas la philosophie. La philosophie peut avoir de grandes batailles intérieures (idéalisme – réalisme, etc.), mais ce sont des batailles pour rire. N’étant pas une puissance, la philosophie ne peut pas engager de bataille avec les puissances, elle mène en revanche une guerre sans bataille, une guérilla contre elles. Et elle ne peut pas parler avec elles, elle n’a rien à leur dire, rien à communiquer, et mène seulement des pourparlers. Comme les puissances ne se contentent pas d’être extérieures, mais aussi passent en chacun de nous, c’est chacun de nous qui se trouve sans cesse en pourparlers et en guérilla avec lui-même, grâce à la philosophie. (G. D.) Ce recueil est paru en 1990.

Book Summary: «Un nu aux seins opulents, légèrement évasés, pour lequel elle aurait pu poser elle-même. Un nu aux yeux clos, défendu comme elle par sa seule puissance érotique et, comme elle, à la fois primaire et élégant. Un nu mordoré mystérieusement endormi sur un gouffre noir velouté que, dans mon humeur du moment, j'associais à celui de la tombe. Fuselée, ondulante, elle t'attend, la jeune fille, immobile et muette comme la mort.» À l'orée de la vieillesse, David Kepesh, esthète attaché à sa liberté et séducteur exigeant, rencontre parmi ses étudiantes Consuela Castillo, vingt-quatre ans, fille de riches émigrés cubains, «émerveillée» par la culture. Et découvre la dépendance sexuelle... C'est le roman d'un envoûtement dans une Amérique bien loin des joyeuses bacchanales des années soixante, chères au Professeur de désir..; Et au tournant du millénaire, cet alter ego de l'auteur, naguère héros du Sein, est confronté non seulement à son propre vieillissement mais à la mort qui rôde en chacun de nous. Après La tache, Philip Roth nous offre à la fois un précis amoureux, une radiographie de notre temps et une méditation sur la condition humaine. Un nouveau chef-d'œuvre, d'une perfection lapidaire.

Science, Politics and Business in the Work of Sir John Lubbock

Book Summary: Sir John Lubbock (1834-1913), first Lord Avebury, was a leading figure in the scientific, political and economic world of Victorian Britain, and his life provides an illuminating case study into the ways that these different facets were interlinked during the nineteenth century. Born into a Kent banking family, Lubbock's education was greatly influenced by his neighbour, Charles Darwin, and after the publication of The Origin of Species, he was one of his most vocal supporters. A pioneer of both entomology and archaeology and a successful author, Lubbock also ran the family bank from 1865 until his death in 1913, and served as a Liberal MP from 1870 until his ennoblement in 1900. In all these roles he proved extremely successful, but it is the inter-relations between science, politics and business that forms the core of this book. In particular it explores the way in which Lubbock acted as a link between the scientific worlds of Darwin, Huxley and Tyndall, the political world of Gladstone and Chamberlain and the business world of Edison and Carnegie. By tying these threads together this study shows the important role Lubbock played in defining and popularising the Victorian ideal of progress and its relationship to society, culture and Empire.

Book Summary: The golfer lines up the shot. It's a long one, and the chances of acing it are nil. He says a prayer, swings, and - hallelujah! - he scores a hole in one. Many golfers confess to murmuring earnest prayers that they, too, may join the 42,000 people a year who catch lightning in a bottle and score a hole in one. It's an excitement that many lucky golfers say they remember with more clarity than their first kiss. That's because nothing in the grand old game is as mysterious yet mundane as the ace. Scott Hoch has had 26; fellow pro Fred Couples just two. Blind men and women have hit them, as have first-time golfers, three-year-old toddlers, and hundred-year-old widows. Richard Nixon is the only president to have scored one and he said it was a greater thrill than winning an election. Filled with fun facts and anecdotes, Hole in One! is a comprehensive clearinghouse of unusual stories involving the aura and accomplishment of scoring an ace. Readers will find out how duffers call upon unusual good luck charms and customs from foreign countries to ensure their swinging success. Hole in One! is the perfect book for all golfers who love the game, whether they're accomplished players or rank amateurs.
