  • The Ickabog is coming... A mythical monster, a kingdom in peril, an adventure that will test two children''s bravery to the limit. Discover a brilliantly original fairy tale about the power of hope and friendship to triumph against all odds, from one of the world''s best storytellers. The kingdom of Cornucopia was once the happiest in the world. It had plenty of gold, a king with the finest moustaches you could possibly imagine, and butchers, bakers and cheesemongers whose exquisite foods made a person dance with delight when they ate them. Everything was perfect - except for the misty Marshlands to the north which, according to legend, were home to the monstrous Ickabog. Anyone sensible knew that the Ickabog was just a myth, to scare children into behaving. But the funny thing about myths is that sometimes they take on a life of their own. Could a myth unseat a beloved king? Could a myth bring a once happy country to its knees? Could a myth thrust two children into an adventure they didn''t ask for and never expected? If you''re feeling brave, step into the pages of this book to find out... A beautiful hardback edition, perfect for sharing and gift-giving. Brought to life with full-colour illustrations by the young winners of The Ickabog competition.

  • Une collection d'ouvrages écrits par des auteurs à succès pour donner envie de lire en VO et d'enrichir ainsi son anglais.  Dans le Long Island des années vingt, la fête est bruyante et la boisson abondante. Surtout chez Jay Gatsby. Aventurier au passé obscur, artiste remarquable par sa capacité à se créer un personnage de toute pièce, Gatsby, figure solaire par son rayonnement, lunaire par le mystère qu'il génère, est réputé pour les soirées qu'il donne dans sa somptueuse propriété. L'opulence, de même que la superficialité des conversations et des relations humaines, semblent ne pas y avoir de limites. C'est pourquoi l'illusion ne peut être qu'éphémère. Parmi les invités de cet hôte étrange se trouve Nick Carraway, observateur lucide qui seul parvient à déceler une certaine grandeur chez Gatsby, incarnation de multiples promesses avortées.


    Francis Scott Fitzgerald entre à l'université de Princeton en 1913. Frustré de n'être ni athlétique, ni brillant, ni riche, il consacre son énergie à l'écriture de comédies musicales. Sa rencontre avec la belle et excentrique Zelda Sayre va faire basculer sa vie. En 1920, c'est le succès avec L'Envers du Paradis. Avec Zelda, il va incarner l'époque "Jazz Age". Le couple s'installe à Paris comme leur ami Ernest Hemingway. Ces années sont des années de beuveries, de chaos, d'argent facile. Fitzgerald écrit Les Heureux et les Damnés où il exprime ses angoisses. Avec sa femme, il emménage ensuite au Cap d'Antibes et ils ont une fille, mais déjà, l'état de santé mentale de Zelda se détériore. C'est en France que Fitzgerald achève Gatsby le magnifique dont les adaptations cinématographiques vont lui permettre de mener encore une vie facile. Lors de la Dépression de 1929, le couple se trouve sur la Côte d'Azur. Fitzgerald boit de plus en plus et Zelda finit par être internée en Suisse.Ne vendant pas assez de livres, Firtzgerald se lance dans la lucrative mais détestée activité de scénariste pour Hollywood. En 1939, il commence Le Dernier Nabab mais boit plus que jamais. Il meurt en 1940 d'un arrêt cardiaque laissant son roman inachevé.

  • MIDDLE ENGLAND

    Jonathan Coe

    • Penguin
    • 27 Juin 2019

    'THE BOOK EVERYONE IS TALKING ABOUT' THE TIMES 'It was tempting to think, at times like this, that some bizarre hysteria had gripped the British people' Beginning eight years ago on the outskirts of Birmingham, where car factories have been replaced by Poundland, and London, where frenzied riots give way to Olympic fever, Middle England follows a brilliantly vivid cast of characters through a time of immense change. There are newlyweds Ian and Sophie, who disagree about the future of the country and, possibly, the future of their relationship; Doug, the political commentator who writes impassioned columns about austerity from his Chelsea townhouse, and his radical teenage daughter who will stop at nothing in her quest for social justice; Benjamin Trotter, who embarks on an apparently doomed new career in middle age, and his father Colin, whose last wish is to vote in the European referendum. And within all these lives is the story of modern England: a story of nostalgia and delusion; of bewilderment and barely-suppressed rage. Following in the footsteps of The Rotters' Club and The Closed Circle , Jonathan Coe's new novel is the novel for our strange new times. 'From post-industrial Birmingham to the London riots and the current political gridlock, [ Middle England ] takes in family, literature and love in a comedy for our times' Guardian 'Coe shows an understanding of this country that goes beyond what most cabinet ministers can muster . . . his light, funny writing makes you feel better' Evening Standard ' Middle England is a full-blooded state of the nation novel, and it brings us bang up-to-date' Sunday Times Coe is an extraordinarily deft plotter...the book zips along...he tackles big ambitious themes, in this case the effect of politics on people's lives, and political opinions on personal relations' Mail on Sunday 'Sublimely good. Funny, tender, human and intelligent ... the state of the (Brexit) nation novel to end them all. Jonathan Coe's best since What a Carve Up! ' India Knight ' An astute, enlightened and enlightening journey into the heart of our current national identity crisis. Both moving and funny. As we'd expect from Coe' Ben Elton 'The first great Brexit novel' Sathnam Sanghera 'Let me add to the chorus of praise for Jonathan Coe's new book Middle England . Easily my favourite of his since What a Carve Up!, which did for Thatcherism what Middle England does for Brexit' John Crace 'Brilliant. Read it too fast, finished it too soon' Nigella Lawson 'Coe's comic critique of a divided country dazzles . . . Properly laugh-out-loud funny . . . it is also incisive and brilliant about our divided country and the deep chasms revealed by the vote to leave. Do not miss' The Bookseller 'A copper bottomed masterpiece' Barney Norris

  • Teeming with life and crackling with energy - a love song to modern Britain and black womanhood 'Astonishing. How she can speak through twelve different people and give them each such distinct and vibrant voices? I loved it. So much' Candice Carty-Williams, author of Queenie 'Didn't think I could love a Bernardine Evaristo novel more than The Emperor's Babe but with Girl, Woman, Other she might just have outdone herself' Diana Evans, author of Ordinary People 'Bernardine Evaristo can take any story from any time and turn it into something vibrating with life' Ali Smith, author of How to be both 'Witty, exhilarating and wise... Once again, Bernardine Evaristo reminds us she is one of Britain's best writers' Nikesh Shukla 'Exceptional. Ambitious, flowing and all-encompassing, an offbeat narrative that'll leave your mind in an invigorated whirl... You have to order it right now' Stylist 'At turns funny and sad, tender and true, this book deserves to win awards' Red Girl, Woman, Other follows the lives and struggles of twelve very different characters. Mostly women, black and British, they tell the stories of their families, friends and lovers, across the country and through the years. Joyfully polyphonic and vibrantly contemporary, this is a gloriously new kind of history, a novel of our times: celebratory, ever-dynamic and utterly irresistible.
