En 1984, à l’âge de vingt ans, Duff McKagan quitte sa ville natale de Seattle – en partie pour des motivations musicales, mais surtout pour fuir une épidémie d’overdoses d’héroïne qui sévit alors au sein de la scène punk locale. Arrivé à Los Angeles depuis quelques semaines à peine et vivant toujours dans sa voiture, il répond à une annonce pour une place de bassiste publiée par un certain Slash. Peu après naît le groupe le plus dangereux du monde. Guns N’ Roses finira par vendre plus d’une centaine de millions d’albums dans les quatre coins du globe. Dans ce livre, Duff retrace le parcours improbable de GN’R jusqu’à la consécration internationale, entre albums de platine et concerts dans des stades remplis. Toutefois, une telle ascension vers la consécration mondiale peut mener à une chute tout aussi vertigineuse, et c’est ce qui est finalement arrivé à Duff, ainsi qu’au groupe lui-même. Alors que GN’R commençait à se désintégrer, Duff sentait qu’il en était fini de lui, également. Mais son expérience aux frontières de la mort, conséquence directe de son alcoolisme, se révélera providentielle : le tournant qui le mènera sur le chemin de la sobriété et qui dictera les choix inattendus qu’il fera alors dans sa vie. D’une voix tout aussi honnête qu’incontestablement personnelle, Duff – l’une des personnalités les plus brillantes et clairvoyantes du rock – entraîne le lecteur dans son aventure poignante à travers les tréfonds de l’un des groupes les plus sulfureux de l’histoire du rock n’ roll – et même au-delà.

Guns N' Roses n'a rien d'un groupe de hard rock conventionnel. Axl Rose, Slash, Duff McKagan, Steven Adler et Izzy Stradlin n'ont pas pris une place vacante. Ils se sont imposés et ont exacerbé une formule qu'ils ont su s'approprier, dans le bruit et la fureur, afin de faire entendre leur voix et leurs riffs en accompagnant la lente agonie des tumultueuses années 80. Entraînant dans son sillage une horde grandissante de fans qui aujourd'hui, 30 ans plus tard, ne cesse de grandir, le groupe le plus dangereux du monde a brillé par son refus des conventions. Clivant, scandaleux et impétueux, il a redéfini les contours du heavy metal sans faire de prisonniers. Aujourd'hui à nouveau (presque) réunis, après des années de conflits ayant fait les choux gras de la presse, les Gunners peuvent compter sur une communauté d'aficionados aussi fidèles que portés par un enthousiasme flamboyant. Des fans qui se livrent avec passion dans cet ouvrage. Entre anecdotes et analyses, ce Paroles de fans dédié aux Guns N' Roses part à la rencontre de celles et ceux qui ont fait du combo californien le centre névralgique de leur passion pour la musique. Il donne la parole, sans détour, aux fans de tous les âges, qu'ils aient connu le groupe à ses débuts ou plus récemment, avec Chinese Democracy, avant la reformation. Il laisse la place à toutes les sensibilités, mais aussi aux critiques, et entend illustrer ce rapport si spécial qui nous unit tous aux Guns N' Roses. You know were you are ?

Regan Flay has been talking about you. Regan Flay is on the cusp of achieving her control-freak mother's "plan" for high school success?cheerleading, student council, the Honor Society—until her life gets turned horribly, horribly upside down. Every bitchy text. Every bitchy email. Every lie, manipulation, and insult she's ever said have been printed out and taped to all the lockers in school. Now Regan has gone from popular princess to total pariah. The only person who even speaks to her is her former best friend's hot but socially miscreant brother, Nolan Letner. Nolan thinks he knows what Regan's going through, but what nobody knows is that Regan isn't really Little Miss Perfect. In fact, she's barely holding it together under her mom's pressure. But the consequences of Regan's fall from grace are only just beginning. Once the chain reaction starts, no one will remain untouched... Especially Regan Flay.

Everyday Mathilde takes the Metro, then the commuter train to the office of a large multi-national where she works in the marketing department. Every day, the same routine, the same trains. But something happened a while ago - she dared to voice a different opinion from her moody boss, Jacques. Bit by bit she finds herself frozen out of everything, with no work to do. Thibault is a paramedic. Every day he drives to the addresses he receives from his controller. The city spares him no grief: traffic jams, elusive parking spaces, delivery trucks blocking his route. He is well aware that he may be the only human being many of the people he visits will see for the entire day and is well acquainted with the symptomatic illnesses, the major disasters, the hustle and bustle and, of course, the immense, pervading loneliness of the city. Before one day in May, Mathilde and Thibault had never met. They were just two anonymous figures in a crowd, pushed and shoved and pressured continuously by the loveless, urban world. Underground Time is a novel of quiet violence - the violence of office-bullying, the violence of the brutality of the city - in which our two characters move towards an inevitable meeting. 'Two solitary existences cross paths in this poignant chronicle, a new testimony to de Vigan's superb eloquence' Lire

Sentimental Education has been described both as the first modern novel and as a novel to end all novels. Weaving a poignant love story into his account of the 1848 revolution, Flaubert shows a society in the grip of stereotypes, on every level. There is something farcical in his depiction of characters who aspire to act but are dogged by cliche at every turn. To a greater extent even than Madame Bovary, Sentimental Education is an indictment of modern consumerism, contrasting the hollowness of material achievement with the lasting beauty of the ideal. Flaubert's study of success and failure offers us a terrible sadness in a terrible beauty, yet is one of the world's great comic masterpieces.

Twenty-third century Earth, ravaged by climate change, looks backwards to the holy ideal of a pre-industrial Eden. Political power has been grabbed by a few powerful families and their green saints. Millions of people are imprisoned in teeming cities; millions more labour on Pharaonic projects to rebuild ruined ecosystems. On the moons of Jupiter and Saturn, the Outers, descendants of refugees from Earth's repressive regimes, have constructed a wild variety of self-sufficient cities and settlements: scientific utopias crammed with exuberant creations of the genetic arts; the last outposts of every kind of democratic tradition. The fragile detente between the Outer cities and the dynasties of Earth is threatened by the ambitions of the rising generation of Outers, who want to break free of their cosy, inward-looking pocket paradises, colonise the rest of the Solar System, and drive human evolution in a hundred new directions. On Earth, many demand pre-emptive action against the Outers before it's too late; others want to exploit the talents of their scientists and gene wizards. Amid campaigns for peace and reconciliation, political machinations, crude displays of military might, and espionage by cunningly wrought agents, the two branches of humanity edge towards war...

An international bestseller and finalist for the Prix Goncourt, France’s most prestigious literary award, The Age of Reinvention is a "suspenseful...Gatsby-esque odyssey...laced with provocative observations of prejudice, politics, and sexism" (Publishers Weekly, starred review). Top Manhattan criminal defense attorney Sam Tahar seems to have it all: fame, fortune, an enviable marriage to a prominent socialite, and two wonderful children. But his success is built on a lie—he isn’t the person he pretends to be. Growing up a poor Muslim immigrant inside a grimy Paris apartment tower, Samir Tahar seemed destined for a life on the margins—until he decided “he was going to cut through the bars of his social jail cell, even if he had to do it with his teeth.” At law school in Montpelier, France, he became fast friends with Jewish student Samuel Baron. The two were inseparable until the irresistible Nina, torn between the men, ultimately chose Samuel. Samir fled to America, where he assumed Samuel’s identity and background while his former friend remained stuck in a French suburb, a failed, neurotic writer seething at Samir’s overseas triumphs. Decades later, the three meet again in this dark, powerful story of a deeply tangled love triangle that becomes subsumed by the war on terror. Called “a masterful novel” (Paris Match) and “a work of great magnitude” (Le Figaro), The Age of Reinvention is an intriguing tale about the wonderful possibilities and terrible costs of remaking oneself.
