Book Summary: « Vous priez encore Dieu ? – Bien sûr. Pourquoi ne le ferais-je pas ? – Eh bien, il me semble qu’Il vous a abandonnée ces derniers temps. – Allah ne m’a jamais abandonnée, c’est nous qui L’avons semé. » Bilqiss est l’héroïne de ce roman : c’est une femme indocile dans un pays où il vaut mieux être n’importe quoi d’autre et si possible un volatile. On l’a jugée, on l’a condamnée, on va la lapider. Qui lui lancera la première pierre ? Qui du juge au désir enfoui ou de la reporter américaine aux belles intentions lui ôtera la vie ? Le roman puissant de Saphia Azzeddine est l’histoire d’une femme, frondeuse et libre, qui se réapproprie Allah.

Book Summary: « Il aurait voulu être un patriarche. Il n’a été qu’un bon père. Au fond de lui sommeille un petit dictateur qu’il aurait aimé nourrir pour devenir le genre d’homme que l’on craint déjà derrière la porte. Cette assurance que le pouvoir confère et qu’annonce un pas souverain avant d’entrer dans une pièce. Ceux qu’on redoute même quand ils sourient. Il aurait voulu être plus tout et moins quelque chose. Plus riche et moins pauvre en fait. » Dans ce roman autobiographique, Saphia Azzeddine nous livre l’histoire de son père. Cet enfant élevé par des femmes au beau milieu de la plus grande palmeraie du Maroc, alors sous protectorat, qui débarquera jeune homme, comme beaucoup dans les années 1960, à Paris pour se faire une place. Mais il ne la trouvera jamais vraiment. Entre deux pays, deux cultures, à la fois fier et honteux, tour à tour infirmer, couturier, c’est en père au foyer qu’il sera le plus heureux et se donnera corps et âme à l’éducation de sa fille, son trésor. Avec beaucoup de piquant, d’émotions et d’humilité, Saphia Azzeddine retrace sa relation avec son père, ses moments de grâce, ses rébellions et ses excès.

Book Summary: This carefully crafted ebook: "The Devil's Dictionary (or The Cynic's Wordbook: Unabridged with all the Definitions)" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. The book is a classic satire in the form of a dictionary on which Bierce worked for decades. It was originally published in 1906 as The Cynic's Word Book before being retitled in 1911. A number of the definitions are accompanied by satiric verses, many of which are signed with comic pseudonyms. It offers reinterpretations of terms in the English language which lampoon cant and political double-talk as well as other aspects of human foolishness and frailty. The definitions provide satirical, witty and often politically pointed representations of the words that is seeks to "define". The Devil's Dictionary has inspired many imitations both in its day and more recently. Ambrose Gwinnett Bierce (1842 – 1914?) was an American satirist, critic, poet, editor and journalist. Bierce became a prolific author of short stories often humorous and sometimes bitter or macabre. His dark, sardonic views and vehemence as a critic earned him the nickname, "Bitter Bierce".

Book Summary: Marie-Adélaïde, née sous X, a la rage au ventre ; elle a un destin, mais ne sait pas encore lequel. Pas celui de caissière à La Miche Dorée. Pas non plus celui de ses rares copines, certaines connues en prison, d’autres camarades de galère et d’errance. Serait-ce celui de nounou des enfants impeccables de la Sublime ? Ou celui de retrouver sa mère coûte que coûte ? Son destin, elle va le chercher avec les moyens dont elle dispose : le culot, la parole qui frappe, l’humour cinglant, l’insoumission à son milieu, la révolte contre toutes les conventions. C’est une héroïne de notre temps.

Book Summary: The spread of Salafism--often referred to as "Wahhabism"--in the West has intrigued and alarmed observers since the attacks of 9/11. Many see it as a fundamentalist interpretation of Islam that condones the subjugation of women and fuels Jihadist extremism. This view depicts Salafi women as the hapless victims of a fanatical version of Islam. Yet in Britain, growing numbers of educated women--often converts or from less conservative Muslim backgrounds-are actively choosing to embrace Salafism's literalist beliefs and strict regulations, including heavy veiling, wifely obedience, and seclusion from non-related men. How do these young women reconcile such difficult demands with their desire for university education, fulfilling careers, and suitable husbands? How do their beliefs affect their love lives and other relationships? And why do they become Salafi in the first place? Anabel Inge has gained unprecedented access to Salafi women's groups in the United Kingdom to provide the first in-depth account of their lives. Drawing on more than two years of ethnographic fieldwork in London, she examines why Salafism is attracting so many young Somalis, Afro-Caribbean converts, and others. But she also reveals the personal dilemmas they confront. This ground-breaking, lucid, and richly detailed book will be of vital interest to scholars, policy-makers, journalists, and general readers.

Book Summary: In August 2002, Mike Horn set out on a mission that bordered on the impossible: to travel 12,000 miles around the globe at the Arctic Circle - alone, against all prevailing winds and currents, and without motorized transportation. Conquering the Impossible is the gripping account of Horn's grueling 27-month expedition by sail and by foot through extreme Arctic conditions that nearly cost him his life on numerous occasions. Enduring temperatures that ranged to as low as -95 degrees Fahrenheit, Horn battled hazards including shifting and unstable ice that gave way and plunged him into frigid waters, encounters with polar bears so close that he felt their breath on his face, severe frostbite in his fingers, and a fire that destroyed all of his equipment and nearly burned him alive. Complementing the sheer adrenaline of Horn's narrative are the isolated but touching human encounters the adventurer has with the hardy individuals who inhabit one of the remotest corners of the earth. From an Inuit who teaches him how to build an igloo to an elderly Russian left behind when the Soviets evacuated his remote Arctic town, Horn finds camaraderie, kindness, and assistance to help him survive the most unforgiving conditions. This awe-inspiring account is a page-turner and an Arctic survival tale in one. Most of all, it's a testament to one man's unrelenting desire to push the boundaries of human endurance.

Book Summary: Eine Kindheit im Ziegenlederzelt, umgeben von Bergen und Wüste. Schafe als Gefährten. Nicht hinterfragte Gesetze als Norm. Jbara lebt mit ihren Eltern und Geschwistern in einem winzigen, ärmlichen Dorf und rechtet mit Allah, ihrem zugleich einzigen Vertrauten. Die Freiheit fährt zweimal pro Woche im Bus vorbei, doch eines Tages fällt - Allah sei Dank - ein rosa Koffer mit Rollen vom Gepäckdach herunter. Jbaras Aussteuer für ein neues Leben, das sie sich unter vielen Opfern und mit Einsatz ihres Körpers erkämpfen wird. Aus Jbara wird Scheherazade, aus Scheherazade schließlich Khadija. Sie verliert ihre Unschuld, ihre Heimat und zwei Zähne, doch nie ihren derben Humor und den Glauben an Gott. Azzeddines Debüt ist ein tabuloser Monolog, das zornig- zärtliche Gebet einer jungen Frau im Maghreb, ein außergewöhnlicher Bildungsroman.

Book Summary: Une île privée des Seychelles. Tatiana, « bécasse sentimentale », rencontre Philip, un garçon bien de sa personne ; ils sont beaux, elle est riche, ils s'aiment et décident de se marier. Leur histoire a tout du conte de fées, oui... mais celui-ci est écrit par Saphia Azzeddine, experte en démolitions. Des plages de sable fin aux coulisses du mariage, de Los Angeles à Paris, et de la meilleure copine à la femme de ménage, chaque personnage prend la parole, comme un chœur de pleureuses, et décrit ce couple en chemin vers l'autel. Sur la scène mondaine, les acteurs de cet univers d'ultra-riches et d'égoïstes liftés s'affrontent et s'esquivent dans une satire sociale aussi drôle que cruelle.
