Let Me Be Frank With You by Richard Ford Book Summary:

A brilliant new work that returns Richard Ford to the hallowed territory that sealed his reputation as an American master: the world of Frank Bascombe, and the landscape of his celebrated novels The Sportswriter, the Pulitzer Prize and PEN/Faulkner winning Independence Day, and The Lay of the Land. In his trio of world-acclaimed novels portraying the life of an entire American generation, Richard Ford has imagined one of the most indelible and widely discussed characters in modern literature, Frank Bascombe. Through Bascombe—protean, funny, profane, wise, often inappropriate—we’ve witnessed the aspirations, sorrows, longings, achievements and failings of an American life in the twilight of the twentieth century. Now, in Let Me Be Frank with You, Ford reinvents Bascombe in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. In four richly luminous narratives, Bascombe (and Ford) attempts to reconcile, interpret and console a world undone by calamity. It is a moving and wondrous and extremely funny odyssey through the America we live in at this moment. Ford is here again working with the maturity and brilliance of a writer at the absolute height of his powers.

My Love is Blind (2017 Edition - PDF) by Tan Guan Heng Book Summary:

“Perhaps I will write about my own life as a blind person,” Choon Guan said. “I’ll entitle it My Love is Blind. The word blind will embrace your name, Lin.” His big eyes widened and lit up, sparkling and full of tenderness. His lips moved in a soundless whisper: “My Love is Lin.” Tan Guan Heng lost his sight at the age of 28. In his first novel, he paints a nostalgic picture of Singapore on the brink of independence. With biting honesty and ironic humour, this novel brings to life the world of the blind and their sighted helpers. More than twenty years after its first publication in 1995, My Love is Blind has retained its enduring appeal as one of Singapore’s most extraordinary and memorable novels. Asiapac Books is pleased to launch a special edition of this groundbreaking novel, updated with an epilogue and a new foreword by Dr. Tommy Koh, and an afterword by literary critic, Gwee Li Sui.

Les Cendres d'Angela (N. éd.) by Frank MCCOURT Book Summary:

Il y a tout juste vingt ans, la France tombait sous le charme des Cendres d'Angela, mémoires d'une enfance irlandaise drôles, tendres et sans rancune, portés par une langue et un souffle romanesque remarquables. Véritable phénomène littéraire mondial, lauréat du prix Pulitzer 1997, un récit sur l'immigration, la pauvreté et la conquête des possibles, une œuvre devenue culte, à (re)découvrir. Difficile de croire que Les Cendres d'Angela aient déjà vingt ans, pourtant le livre de Frank McCourt a mieux vieilli que la plupart de ceux de la même époque, du fait notamment qu'il n'a rien perdu de sa justesse. Il est peut-être plus pertinent que jamais. L'autobiographie de McCourt a touché la France au cœur, réussi à faire rire ses lecteurs même en ce qu'elle recèle de plus sombre. Aujourd'hui, en 2017, elle est capable d'apporter un éclairage particulier sur notre situation, guère plus réjouissante. C'est, à la base, l'histoire d'un immigré, confronté à la pauvreté, à la solitude, à l'oppression, mais également le récit d'une lutte contre le pouvoir, d'une conquête des possibles, qui passe en revue les thèmes de la foi, de l'adhésion à une communauté, de l'isolement. Deux décennies plus tard, tout est encore là : la violence, l'exil, la privation, le besoin. Imaginez que vous apportiez un exemplaire du livre dans les tours de Saint-Denis, que vous le lisiez sur les quais de Marseille, que vous en discutiez dans la jungle de Calais avec les réfugiés. Leur propre histoire commence de la même façon. Nous ignorons seulement si elle connaîtra un dénouement analogue. Extrait de la préface de Colum McCann

Literature and the Public Good by Rick Rylance Book Summary:

The Literary Agenda is a series of short polemical monographs about the importance of literature and of reading in the wider world and about the state of literary education inside schools and universities. The category of 'the literary' has always been contentious. What is clear, however, is how increasingly it is dismissed or is unrecognised as a way of thinking or an arena for thought. It is sceptically challenged from within, for example, by the sometimes rival claims of cultural history, contextualized explanation, or media studies. It is shaken from without by even greater pressures: by economic exigency and the severe social attitudes that can follow from it; by technological change that may leave the traditional forms of serious human communication looking merely antiquated. For just these reasons this is the right time for renewal, to start reinvigorated work into the meaning and value of literary reading. Rick Rylance addresses the debate over the public value of literary studies in a book which starts from the widely-remarked predicament of the humanities in modern times. By comparison with science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, the humanities can be negatively characterised as at best optional extras; at worst, frivolous and wasteful. Funders and policy-makers can question their value in terms of utility, vocational prospects and intrinsic worth, while journalists and commentators predict extinction. So what is the justification for literature at the present time? Rylance argues that literature's value lies in its enormous public presence and its contribution to the public good. Far from being apologetic for our investment in literature, he argues for its value to all parts of our society from economic productivity to personal and social wellbeing. He examines discussion of literature's public role over time, taking in key moments of self-reflection such as Sir Philip Sidney's 'Defense of Poesy' (1581) and work by John Mill and Ruskin. He reviews current arguments about how culture creates value: from the idea of 'public goods' in economics to the value of reading for social consciousness in cognitive psychology. The book makes strong claims for the importance and urgency of reading literature today.

Pitié pour leurs âmes by John Searles Book Summary:

Tout commence par un appel téléphonique, une nuit neigeuse de février. Couchée dans son lit, la jeune Sylvie Mason entend ses parents au téléphone à l’autre bout du couloir. Ce n’est pas la première fois qu’on les appelle si tard car ils ont une occupation pour le moins inhabituelle : ils prêtent main-forte aux « âmes tourmentées » pour les aider à retrouver la paix. Mais cette fois, Sylvie sent que cet appel n’est pas comme les autres, d’autant qu’on les convainc de se rendre à la vieille église à l’orée de la ville. Là, ses parents disparaissent, l’un après l’autre, par les portes rouges de l’édifice, laissant Sylvie seule dans la voiture. Bientôt, elle s’endort... réveillée un peu plus tard par des coups de feu. Au fil du roman, qui oscille entre les années ayant mené à cette nuit-là et les mois qui suivirent, la jeune Sylvie n’aura de cesse de chercher les réponses aux questions qui la harcèlent, quitte à découvrir des secrets qui hantent sa famille depuis des années. Alliant le sens dérangeant de l’étrange d’un Stephen King et la tendresse fantasque d’un John Irving, Pitié pour leurs âmes nous est raconté par la voix captivante d’une jeune héroïne bien décidée à découvrir la vérité sur ce qui s’est réellement passé cette nuit d’hiver.

Adaptée à d'innombrables occasions depuis sa création, cette œuvre a notamment inspiré Berlioz et Tchaïkovski en musique classique, Prokofiev en ballet, "West Side Story" en comédie musicale ou, plus récemment, "Romeo + Juliet" au cinéma. Leonardo DiCaprio a d'ailleurs reçu l'Ours d'Argent au Festival de Berlin pour son interprétation de Roméo. Surnommé le "Barde", William Shakespeare (1564-c.1616) est considéré de par le monde comme l'un des plus grands dramaturges de l'Histoire et l'écrivain le plus important de la littérature anglophone. Son existence est controversée, mais les nombreuses œuvres qu'il a léguées au monde ont influencé des générations de lecteurs et d'écrivains et continuent, aujourd'hui encore, d'être mises en scène ou adaptées au cinéma.

Handbook of Ambient Intelligence and Smart Environments by Hideyuki Nakashima,Hamid Aghajan,Juan Carlos Augusto Book Summary:

Our homes anticipate when we want to wake up. Our computers predict what music we want to buy. Our cars adapt to the way we drive. In today’s world, even washing machines, rice cookers and toys have the capability of autonomous decision-making. As we grow accustomed to computing power embedded in our surroundings, it becomes clear that these ‘smart environments’, with a number of devices controlled by a coordinating system capable of ‘ambient intelligence’, will play an ever larger role in our lives. This handbook provides readers with comprehensive, up-to-date coverage in what is a key technological field. . Systematically dealing with each aspect of ambient intelligence and smart environments, the text covers everything, from visual information capture and human/computer interaction to multi-agent systems, network use of sensor data, and building more rationality into artificial systems. The book also details a wide range of applications, examines case studies of recent major projects from around the world, and analyzes both the likely impact of the technology on our lives, and its ethical implications. With a wide variety of separate disciplines all conducting research relevant to this field, this handbook encourages collaboration between disparate researchers by setting out the fundamental concepts from each area that are relevant to ambient intelligence and smart environments, providing a fertile soil in which ground-breaking new work candevelop.

Anglican Communion in Crisis by Miranda K. Hassett Book Summary:

The sign outside the conservative, white church in the small southern U.S. town announces that the church is part of the Episcopal Church--of Rwanda. In Anglican Communion in Crisis, Miranda Hassett tells the fascinating story of how a new alliance between conservative American Episcopalians and African Anglicans is transforming conflicts between American Episcopalians--especially over homosexuality--into global conflicts within the Anglican church. In the mid-1990s, conservative American Episcopalians and Anglican leaders from Africa and other parts of the Southern Hemisphere began to forge ties in opposition to the American Episcopal Church's perceived liberalism and growing toleration of homosexuality. This resulted in dozens of American Episcopal churches submitting to the authority of African bishops. Based on wide research, interviews with key participants and observers, and months Hassett spent in a southern U.S. parish of the Episcopal Church of Rwanda and in Anglican communities in Uganda, Anglican Communion in Crisis is the first anthropological examination of the coalition between American Episcopalians and African Anglicans. The book challenges common views--that the relationship between the Americans and Africans is merely one of convenience or even that the Americans bought the support of the Africans. Instead, Hassett argues that their partnership is a deliberate and committed movement that has tapped the power and language of globalization in an effort to move both the American Episcopal Church and the worldwide Anglican Communion to the right.

The President, the Pope, And the Prime Minister by John O'Sullivan Book Summary:

The President, the Pope, and the Prime Minister is a sweeping, dramatic account of how three great figures changed the course of history. All of them led with courage — but also with great optimism. The pope helped ordinary Poles and East Europeans banish their fear of Soviet Communism, convincing them that liberation was possible. The prime minister restored her country's failing economy by reviving the "vigorous virtues" of the British people. The president rebuilt America's military power, its national morale, and its pre – eminence as leader of the free world. Together, they brought down an evil empire and changed the world for the better. No one can tell their intertwined story better than John O'Sullivan, former editor of National Review and the Times of London, who knew all three and conducted exclusive interviews that shed extraordinary new light on these giants of the twentieth century.
