Un hommage appuyé à ceux qu'on appelait les nouveaux bâtisseurs de cathédrales au XIX e siècle, magiciens de l'ingénierie, adorateurs du dieu Progrès, dont Gustave Eiffel. Au XIXe siècle, il y eut une nouvelle génération de bâtisseurs. Ils travaillaient l'acier, le fer, le cuivre ou la pierre, partaient à l'assaut du ciel et vénéraient tous le même dieu, qu'ils nommaient Progrès. Juin 1863, deux hommes aux tempéraments opposés mais unis par la même passion vont se rencontrer dans l'immensité désertique de la plaine d'Andalousie. L'un, Gustave Eiffel, jeune ingénieur ambitieux, veut s'établir à son compte comme constructeur. L'autre, Clément Delhorme, pionner des vols d'altitude en ballon, à la tête d'une famille bohème établie à l'Alhambra de Grenade, est à l'origine des premiers modèles de prévision météorologique. À partir de ce jour, les deux génies vont lier leurs vies et leurs envies de records, et se façonner un destin à la hauteur de leurs rêves. " Un énorme travail de documentation et d'érudition. C'est riche, bien écrit. " Pascal Salciarini – L'Est républicain @ Disponible chez 12-21 L'ÉDITEUR NUMÉRIQUE

Made of Stars by Kelley York When eighteen-year-old Hunter Jackson and his half sister, Ashlin, return to their dad's for the first winter in years, they expect everything to be just like the warmer months they'd spent there as kids. And it is—at first. But Chance, the charismatic and adventurous boy who made their summers epic, is harboring deep secrets. Secrets that are quickly spiraling into something else entirely. The reason they've never met Chance's parents or seen his home is becoming clearer. And what the siblings used to think of as Chance's quirks—the outrageous stories, his clinginess, his dangerous impulsiveness—are now warning signs that something is seriously off. Then someone turns up with a bullet to the head, and all eyes shift to Chance's family. Hunter and Ashlin know Chance is innocent...they just have to prove it. But how can they protect the boy they both love when they can't trust a word Chance says?

In East London in the summer of 1895, Robert Coombes (age thirteen) and his brother Nattie (age twelve) were arrested for matricide and sent for trial at the Old Bailey. Robert confessed to having stabbed his mother, but his lawyers argued that he was insane. The judge sentenced him to detention in Broadmoor, the most infamous criminal lunatic asylum in the land. Shockingly, Broadmoor turned out to be the beginning of a new life for Robert. At a time of great tumult and uncertainty, Robert Coombes's case crystallized contemporary anxieties about the education of the working classes, the dangers of pulp fiction, and evolving theories of criminality, childhood, and insanity. With riveting detail and rich atmosphere, Summerscale re-creates this terrible crime and its aftermath, uncovering an extraordinary story of man's capacity to overcome the past.

Inspired by real events, Horses of God follows four childhood friends growing up in a slum outside of Casablanca as they make the life-changing decisions that will lead them to become Islamist martyrs. On May 16, 2003, fourteen suicide bombers launched a series of attacks throughout Casablanca. It was the deadliest attack in Morocco’s history. The bombers came from the shantytowns of Sidi Moumen, a poor suburb on the edge of a dump whose impoverished residents rarely if ever set foot in the cosmopolitan city at their doorstep. Mahi Binebine’s novel Horses of God follows four childhood friends growing up in Sidi Moumen as they make the life-changing decisions that will lead them to become Islamist martyrs. The seeds of fundamentalist martyrdom are sown in the dirt-poor lives of Yachine, Nabil, Fuad, and Ali, all raised in Sidi Moumen. The boys’ soccer team, The Stars of Sidi Moumen, is their main escape from the poverty, violence, and absence of hope that pervade their lives. When Yachine’s older brother Hamid falls under the spell of fundamentalist leader Abu Zoubeir, the attraction of a religion that offers discipline, purpose, and guidance to young men who have none of these things becomes too seductive to ignore. Narrated by Yachine from the afterlife, Horses of God portrays the sweet innocence of childhood and friendship as well as the challenges facing those with few opportunities for a better life. Binebine navigates the controversial situation with compassion, creating empathy for the boys, who believe they have no choice but to follow the path offered them.

Moussa Massy dreams of being a star. A Kabyle singer in 1990s Algiers, Massy electrifies audiences with his fusion of Arab and African melodies with American pop music.

In energetic, staccato prose, The Star of Algiers vividly portrays the harsh realities of a country in constant turmoil and brilliantly shows the capacity for despair and hatred of those who have nothing left to lose.

Six months before his death in 1982, Gwen Lee recorded the first of several in-depth discussions with Philip K Dick, discussions which continued over the course of three months. The subjects touched upon include the specifics of his writing process, his reaction to the scenes and trailers of Blade Runner (he never lived to see the finished film), and accounts of his religious experiences. The greatest amount of time was devoted to discussions of his final book Owl in Daylight which remained unfinished. Essential reading for anyone interested in science fiction.

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.
