Beside Myself by Ann Morgan Book Summary:
As gripping as Room, as powerful as Elizabeth is Missing, Beside Myself is the story of twin sisters, a childhood game with devastating consequences and the slippery nature of identity Helen and Ellie are identical twins – like two peas in a pod, everyone says. The girls know this isn't true, though: Helen is the leader and Ellie the follower. Until they decide to swap places: just for fun, and just for one day. But Ellie refuses to swap back... And so begins a nightmare from which Helen cannot wake up. Her toys, her clothes, her friends, her glowing record at school, the favour of her mother and the future she had dreamed of are all gone to a sister who blossoms in the approval that used to belong to Helen. And as the years pass, she loses not only her memory of that day but also herself – until eventually only 'Smudge' is left. Twenty-five years later, Smudge receives a call from out of the blue. It threatens to pull her back into her sister's dangerous orbit, but if this is her only chance to face the past, how can she resist? Beside Myself is a compulsive and darkly brilliant psychological drama about family and identity – what makes us who we are and how very fragile it can be.

Beside Myself by Sasha Marianna Salzmann Book Summary:
A brilliant literary debut about belonging, family, and love, and the enigmatic nature of identity. Beside Myself is the disturbing and exhilarating story of a family across four generations. At its heart is a twin’s search for her brother. When Anton goes missing and the only clue is a postcard sent from Istanbul, Ali leaves her life in Berlin to find him. Without her twin, the sharer of her memories and the mirror of her own self, Ali is lost. In a city steeped in political and social upheaval, where you can buy gender-changing drugs on the street, Ali’s search—for her missing brother, for her identity—will take her on a journey for connection and belonging.
Expositions of the Psalms 1-32 (Vol. 1) by Saint Augustine,John E. Rotelle Book Summary:
This is the first volume of the long-awaited translation of one of AugustineÂ’s classics and a great work in Christian literature. Newly translated by Maria Boulding, O.S.B., whose masterful translation of AugustineÂ’s Confessions in the same series has been praised as being Â“of a different level of excellence from practically anything else in the marketÂ” (Bishop Rowan Williams, Monmouth, England). As the psalms are a microcosm of the Old Testament, so the Expositions of the Psalms can be seen as a microcosm of Augustinian thought. They recapitulate and focus the experiences of AugustineÂ’s personal life, his theological reflections, and his pastoral concerns as Bishop of Hippo. Â“This first volume of the Exposition of the Psalms in Sister Maria Boulding's fine translation fills a long existing vacuum among the translated works of Augustine available to contemporary readers. Her clear and attractive translation presents Augustine's expression of his own spirituality, which necessarily entails his most valuable theological insights. The comprehensive and scholarly 51-page introduction by Michael Fiedrowicz offers a key to the Psalms' various depths of meaning and shows how they are a microcosm of Augustinian thought.Â” Mary T. Clark, RSCJ Author of: Augustine in the Â“Outstanding Christian Thinkers SeriesÂ”
Angel Babies by Clive Alando Taylor Book Summary:
It was very much my intention not to state the name of any particular place in the script as I thought that the telling of the story of the Angel Babies is in itself about believing in who you are, and also about facing up to your fears. The Angel Babies is also set loosely in accordance with the foretelling of the Bibles Revelations. I thought it would be best to take this approach, as the writing of the script is also about the Who, What, Where, When, How and Why scenario that we all often deal with in our ongoing existence. It would also not be fair to myself or to anyone else who has read the Angel Babies to not acknowledge this line of questioning, for instance, who are we? What are we doing here? Where did we come from? And when will our true purpose be known? And how do we fulfil our true potential to better ourselves and others, the point of which are the statements that I am also making in the Angel Babies and about Angels in particular, Is that if we reach far into our minds we still wonder Where did the Angels come from and what is their place in this world. I know sometimes that we all wish and pray for the miracle of life to reveal itself but the answer to this mystery truly lives within us and around us, I only hope that you will find the Angel Babies an interesting narrative and exciting story as I have had in bringing it to life, after all there could be an Angel Baby being born right now.
In Search of Being by G. I. Gurdjieff Book Summary:

A woman's world, a better world? by Muriel De saint-sauveur Book Summary:
What would our planet be like if women were in charge ? Would it be different ? What would be the fundamental changes to our lives ? These are the questions Muriel de Saint Sauveur poses to one hundred economically, politically and culturally prominent women, coming from thirty-three countries across five different continents. Amongst them are the Chinese writer and photographer Xiao Hui Wang ; Assana Sangare-Ouattara, deputy of the National Assembly in the Ivory Coast ; the Egyptian businesswoman Loula Zaklama and also French women including Françoise Gri, president of Manpower France and Marie-Jo Zimmermann, president of the French National Assembly's delegation on women's rights and gender equality. More involved, more ambitious and less egocentric, their priorities are different to those of men. Economy and strategy are not at the top of their lists, instead they view education as an essential objective towards social emancipation and living together in harmony. Their optimistic perception of the world envisions an organisation different to that of our society today.
Nos années sauvages by Karen Joy FOWLER Book Summary:
" Je n'avais que cinq ans lorsqu'elle disparut de ma vie, mais je me souviens d'elle. Je me souviens d'elle avec précision : son odeur, son contact, des images morcelées de son visage, ses oreilles, son menton, ses yeux. Ses bras, ses pieds, ses doigts. " Il était une fois deux sœurs, un frère et leurs parents qui vivaient heureux tous ensemble. Rosemary était une petite fille très bavarde, si bavarde que ses parents lui disaient de commencer au milieu lorsqu'elle racontait une histoire. Puis sa sœur disparut. Et son frère partit. Alors, elle cessa de parler... jusqu'à aujourd'hui. C'est l'histoire de cette famille hors normes que Rosemary va vous conter, et en particulier celle de Fern, sa sœur pas tout à fait comme nous... " Il y a eu beaucoup de livres écrits sur l'amour et la rivalité fraternels, mais peu, j'en suis sûre, capables de vous déchirer le cœur et de vous bouleverser comme celui-ci... Préparez-vous à être enchanté et traumatisé. " The Times " Un portrait touchant d'une famille américaine qui soulève en vous des questions et des sentiments inattendus : sur l'humanité, la psychologie et l'amour sous toutes ses formes. " Psychologies " Cela fait des années que je ne me suis pas sentie autant passionnée par un livre. Quand je l'ai terminé à 3 heures du matin, je pleurais, puis quand je me suis réveillée, j'ai relu la fin et je me suis remise à pleurer. " Ruth Ozeki, auteur d' En même temps, toute la terre et tout le ciel
Contrecoups by Nathan Filer Book Summary:
" Je vais vous raconter ce qui s'était passé, parce que ce sera l'occasion de vous présenter mon frère. Il s'appelle Simon. Je pense que vous allez l'aimer. Vraiment. Mais d'ici quelques pages il sera mort. Et, après ça, il n'a plus jamais été le même. " Matthew a 19 ans, et c'est un jeune homme hanté. Par la mort de son grand frère, dix ans auparavant. Par la culpabilité. Par la voix de Simon qu'il entend partout, tout le temps... Matthew a 19 ans et il souffre de schizophrénie, une maladie qui " ressemble à un serpent ". Pour comprendre son passé et s'en libérer, Matthew dessine, écrit. Il raconte l'enfance étouffée par la perte, la douleur silencieuse de ses parents ; l'adolescence ingrate brouillée par les nuages de marijuana ; la lente descente dans la folie, l'internement... Mais aussi, avec un humour mordant, le quotidien parfois absurde et toujours répétitif de l'hôpital psychiatrique, les soignants débordés, l'ennui abyssal... Et le combat sans cesse renouvelé pour apprivoiser la maladie, et trouver enfin sa place dans le monde. Bouleversant, tourmenté, souvent drôle, Contrecoups est un roman tendre et courageux, porté par une voix absolument unique. "Un premier opus poignant" L'Express " Un roman foudroyant. Ambitieux et parfaitement réalisé, il est tour à tour saisissant, bouleversant, déchirant. L'écriture est si aboutie qu'il est difficile de croire que c'est un premier roman. C'est de toute évidence le travail d'un nouveau talent majeur. " – S. J. Watson, auteur d'Avant d'aller dormir "Le style de l'auteur est vraiment brillant" Take a Book "Ce livre a réussi à me déstabiliser par son histoire" Enjoy Books

John Calvin's Commentaries On St. Paul's First Epistle To The Corinthians Vol. 2 (Annotated Edition) by John Calvin Book Summary:
This is the extended and annotated edition including * an extensive biographical annotation about the author and his life Calvin produced commentaries on most of the books of the Bible. His commentaries cover the larger part of the Old Testament, and all of the new excepting Second and Third John and the Apocalypse. His commentaries and lectures stand in the front rank of Biblical interpretation. THE EPISTLES OF PAUL TO THE CORINTHIANS form a most important part of the Sacred Writings. Though not so systematic as the Epistle to the ROMANS, they contain many passages, bearing directly on the fundamentally important doctrines of the Christian system, while they are of the highest utility in connection with Practical Theology. The disorders that had unhappily crept into the Church at Corinth, gave occasion for the Apostle’s handling at greater length than in any of his other Epistles various important points as to doctrine and worship; while the relaxed state of discipline that had begun to prevail among them rendered it necessary to exhibit more fully the principles which ought to regulate the administration of the Christian Church. In this the overruling hand of Him who brings good out of evil is strikingly apparent. This volume contains chapters 15 and 16 along with the whole Second Epistle.
