Part love story and part psychological thriller from best-selling author Trevanian, "a tour de force . . . A story that explores meticulously some of the darker corners of the human soul." -- The Washington Post In the quiet Basque countryside in 1914, Jean-Marc Montjean, a handsome young doctor, moves to the small French village of Salies to assist the village physician. It's there that he meets the seductive, beautiful Katya Treville. Jean-Marc is bewitched, driven to know everything about her. But as he and her family become friendly, he realizes they are haunted by an old, dark secret. When Jean-Marc learns that the Trevilles are planning to leave the village forever, he insists on a final meeting with Katya. That meeting and the events that follow turn what was an idyllic romance into an unending nightmare. And when Katya’s secret is revealed, the chilling climax will stay with the reader long after the last page is turned. "A most exquisite, elegant, ingenious thriller." -- The New York Daily News

"À l’été de 1914, Jean-Marc Montjean, jeune homme tout juste diplômé, revient s’installer à Sallies, petit village du Pays basque dont il est originaire. Rapidement, il est appelé à soigner Paul Treville dont la jolie sœur jumelle, Katya, l’intrigue de plus en plus. Bien accueilli chez les Treville, le jeune médecin devient un ami de la famille, qu’il fréquente assidûment en dépit d’une certaine ambiguïté dans leurs relations. Et même s’il devine derrière leurs hospitalité et bonnes manières un lourd et douloureux secret, il ne peut s’empêcher de tomber éperdument amoureux de Katya, quelles qu’en soient les conséquences. Auteur mystérieux de best-sellers internationaux, dont La Sanction, adapté au cinéma par Clint Eastwood et l’inoubliable Shibumi, Trevanian a notamment vécu au Pays basque, auquel il rend hommage dans plusieurs de ses romans.

Dramatique récit d'amour et de mort rapporté par le narrateur comme une chronique nostalgique. L'auteur, élargissant son registre, réussit un roman prenant en se servant de la situation gémellaire de façon originale. L'humour des dialogues fort bien traduits et la vitalité des protagonistes atténuent l'horreur diffuse qui baigne cette histoire fatale.

The Main is Montreal’s teeming underworld, where the dark streets echo with cries in a dozen languages, with the quick footsteps of thieves and the whispers of prostitutes. It is a world where violence and brutality are a way of life. To the people of the Main, police lieutenant Claude LaPointe is judge and jury, father confessor and avenging angel. Montreal’s police force has changed over time, but LaPointe has not. His commitment to justice is total, as is his devotion to the Main and its underworld community. But when a cold-blooded murderer invades LaPointe’s territory, he is forced to examine his long-held beliefs and secrets and to confront his own loneliness and mortality. With a cast of unforgettable supporting characters and an unusual and remarkable hero, The Main is another gripping tale of death and danger, of action and mystery, by the incomparable Trevanian. Look for these other Trevanian classics from Three Rivers Press: The Eiger Sanction, The Loo Sanction, Shibumi, and The Summer of Katya. From the Trade Paperback edition.

« Depuis des mois, il entendait à la radio et il voyait à la télévision que des avions allaient bombarder ou tirer des missiles contre des hommes qui n’avaient pas plus envie de périr qu’il n’en avait l’envie lui-même. Mais, évidemment, cela n’était pas du tout comme de voir là, sur la mer, la masse ramassée et hostile du "Porte-Guerre", avec l’escadrille infernale qui devait sommeiller dans la nuit de son ventre. Dressé dans sa révolte, la mâchoire serrée, pour la première fois, Marco murmura : — Détruire le "Porte-Guerre" ! » Le pacifisme dans lequel vivait Marco se fissure peu et peu, et dans l’âme de ce charpentier de marine s’élève une sourde colère contre le pouvoir qu’a l’homme de vouloir dominer autrui et de porter la guerre et la mort en tous lieux. Aidé par Katya, fille du talentueux ingénieur Klevchine, ils mèneront un combat commun contre un porte-avions géant, symbole d’une civilisation moins pacifique et évoluée qu’elle ne le laisse entendre. Situé dans une géographie mondiale sur laquelle plane toujours le spectre de la guerre et de la mort, le roman de Robert Postel s’impose comme une fable humaine et anti-impérialiste. Il résonne comme un appel à la révolte et à l’implication de chacun dans la destinée collective. Une oeuvre où l’engagement se fait impérieux, absolu, jusqu’au-boutiste.

Les femmes, qui arrivaient parfois de nuit, croyaient être près de la côte car le vent y avait un goût de sel et elles sentaient le sable sous leurs pieds. Quand venait le jour, elles voyaient que le camp était construit au bord d’un lac et entouré de forêts. Himmler aimait que ses camps soient dans des lieux d’une grande beauté naturelle, et de préférence dissimulés. Aujourd’hui, le camp est toujours hors de vue ; les horribles crimes qui y ont été commis et le courage des victimes restent largement ignorés. De 1939 à 1945, au camp de Ravensbrück, 132 000 femmes et enfants furent les victimes silencieuses des nazis. Résistantes, Tziganes, Témoins de Jéhova, handicapées, prostituées ou juives, elles étaient pour le Reich des déclassées, des « bouches inutiles ». Parmi elles, 8 000 Françaises dont Germaine Tillion et Geneviève de Gaulle-Anthonioz. Fruit d’un travail d’enquête minutieux à travers le monde à la rencontre des dernières rescapées et des familles des déportées, ce livre exceptionnel redonne la parole à ces femmes, vibrantes héroïnes d’une histoire restée trop longtemps marginale. « SUPERBEMENT DOCUMENTÉ ET TERRIBLEMENT ÉMOUVANT... LE LIVRE DE SARAH HELM, FONDÉ POUR UNE PART SUR LES TÉMOIGNAGES DES SURVIVANTS, EST UN MODÈLE DE SENSIBILITÉ ET DE SÉRIEUX. »Sunday Times

One of The New York Times Book Review's "10 Best Books of 2015" An NYRB Classics Original The Door is an unsettling exploration of the relationship between two very different women. Magda is a writer, educated, married to an academic, public-spirited, with an on-again-off-again relationship to Hungary's Communist authorities. Emerence is a peasant, illiterate, impassive, abrupt, seemingly ageless. She lives alone in a house that no one else may enter, not even her closest relatives. She is Magda's housekeeper and she has taken control over Magda's household, becoming indispensable to her. And Emerence, in her way, has come to depend on Magda. They share a kind of love--at least until Magda's long-sought success as a writer leads to a devastating revelation. Len Rix's prizewinning translation of The Door at last makes it possible for American readers to appreciate the masterwork of a major modern European writer.

Si seulement il battait encore... Angus MacKay était un mort-vivant depuis près de cinq cents ans, et il était rare que quelque chose, ou encore quelqu’un, puisse le surprendre. C’était avant qu’Emma Wallace ne se manifeste. Le simple fait d’avoir la pulpeuse agente de l’équipe de Surveillance de la CIA sous les yeux suffisait pour qu’Angus s’arrête net. Il allait ensuite découvrir qu’elle était une tueuse de vampires, résolue à tuer les «monstres» qui avaient assassiné ses parents, et c’était à lui qu’on avait confié la tâche de l’arrêter. Les seuls vampires qui n’ont pas tort sont les vampires qui sont morts. C’était là la devise d’Emma depuis qu’elle avait décidé de consacrer sa vie à la destruction de ces choses. Angus Mackay souhaitait maintenant la convaincre de penser autrement. Oui, c’était un séduisant guerrier des Highlands qui semblait s’être glissé dans le réel depuis la page couverture d’un roman d’amour, avec son accent écossais, son kilt et son épée, mais il faisait tout de même partie d’eux, et s’était son travail de le tuer. La guerre est ouverte. Est-ce qu’elle se terminera par la destruction de l’un d’entre eux ou même des deux, ou est-ce qu’ils capituleront en faveur d’une passion pouvant durer pendant des siècles et des siècles?

The notion of the symbol is at the root of the Symbolist movement, but this symbol is different from the way it was used and understood in the Middle Ages and Renaissance. In the Symbolist movement, a symbol is not an allegory. The Belgian writer Maurice Maeterlinck defined its essence in an article that appeared on April 24, 1887, in L’Art moderne. He wrote that the notion of a symbol in the Symbolist movement is the opposite of the notion of the symbol in classical usage: instead of going from the abstract to the concrete (Venus, incarnated in the statue, represents love), it goes from the concrete to the abstract, from “what is seen, heard, felt, tasted, and sensed to the evocation of the idea.” This volume attempts to give a glimpse into the power of the Symbolist movement and the nature of its fundamental and interdisciplinary role in the evolution of art and literature of the twentieth century. It records the studies of a group of scholars, who met and discussed these topics together for the first time in 2009. While illuminating the specificity of Symbolism in art, architecture and literature in different European countries, these articles also demonstrate the crucial role of French Symbolism in the development of the international Symbolist movement. The authors hope that an expanding group, a society of Art, Literature and Music in Symbolism and Decadence (ALMSD), born out of the first meeting, will continue to further this discussion at future conferences and in the printed conference proceedings.
