New York City, 1936. In the midst of the Great Depression, the Big Apple is defiantly striving toward an era infused with art, architecture, and economic progress under dynamic Mayor La Guardia. It’s been six months since Lane Sanders was appointed Mayor Fiorello ´´Fio” La Guardia’s new personal aide, and the 23-year-old is sprinting in her Mary Janes to match her boss’ pace. Despite dealing with vitriol from the Tammany Hall political machine and managing endless revitalization efforts, Fio hasn’t slowed down a bit during his years in office. And luckily for Lane, his unpredictable antics are a welcome distraction from the childhood memories that haunt her dreams - and the silver gun she’ll never forget. When Lane gets attacked and threatened by an assailant tied to one of the most notorious gangsters in the city, even the mayor can’t promise that he can keep her safe. The corrupt city officials seem to be using Lane as a pawn against Fio for disgracing their party in the prior election. But why was the assailant wielding the exact same gun from her nightmares? Balancing a clandestine love affair and a mounting list of suspects, Lane must figure out how the secrets of her past are connected to the city’s underground crime network - before someone pulls the trigger on the most explosive revenge plot in New York history. 1.

From Jessica Knoll - author of Luckiest Girl Alive, the instant New York Times best seller and the best-selling debut novel of 2015 - comes a blisteringly paced thriller starring competitive sisters whose dark secrets and lies result in murder when they sign on to a reality TV show. When five hypersuccessful women agree to appear on a reality series set in New York City called Goal Diggers, the producers never expect the season will end in murder.... Brett´s the fan favorite. Tattooed and only 27, the meteoric success of her spin studio - and her recent engagement to her girlfriend - has made her the object of jealousy and vitriol from her castmates. Kelly, Brett´s older sister and business partner, is the most recent recruit, dismissed as a hanger-on by veteran cast. The golden child growing up, she defers to Brett now - a role that requires her to protect their shocking secret. Stephanie, the first black cast member and the oldest, is a successful best-selling author of erotic novels. There have long been whispers about her hot, nonworking actor-husband and his wandering eye, but this season the focus is on the rift that has opened between her and Brett, former best friends - and resentment soon breeds contempt. Lauren, the start-up world´s darling whose drinking has gotten out of control, is Goal Diggers´ recovery narrative - everyone loves a comeback story. And Jen, made rich and famous through her cultishly popular vegan food line plays a holistic hippie for the cameras but is perhaps the most ruthless of them all when the cameras are off. The Favorite Sister explores the invisible barriers that prevent women from rising up the ranks in today´s America - and offers a scathing take on the oft-lionized bonds of sisterhood and the relentless pressure to stay young, relevant, and salable. 1.

Amérique 1950 : le ´´White only´´ s´applique partout : bus, hôtels, culture ; pour un soldat noir, voyager d´un Etat à l´autre est une odyssée. C´est dans un pays au bord de l´implosion que, de retour de la guerre de Corée, Frank Money, miné par de terribles crises d´angoisse et une incapacité totale à renouer avec les autres, reçoit un appel au secours de sa sœur gravement malade, lui demandant de venir à Atlanta. Il se lance alors dans la traversée de cette Amérique ségrégationniste pour la ramener à Lotus, ville de leur enfance. Un voyage emblématique vers ce lieu fantasmé comme détesté, aimé et subi, durant lequel Franck Money se redécouvrira pour se reconstruire. Toni Morrison fait de ce roman, condensé au vitriol de la mémoire honteuse de cette époque, un miroir tendu à l´Amérique d´aujourd´hui. Approuvée par l´auteure elle-même, Anna Mouglalis donne au roman de Toni Morrison ce mélange de gravité et de sérénité qui en font déjà un texte mémorial. 1. French.

André Aciman has been hailed as ´´the most exciting new fiction writer of the 21st century´´ (New York magazine), a ´´brilliant chronicler of the disconnect...between who we are and who we wish we might have been´´ (Wall Street Journal), and a writer of ´´fiction at its most supremely interesting´´ (Colm Tóibín). Now, with his third and most ambitious novel, Aciman delivers an elegant and powerful tale of the wages of assimilation - a moving story of an immigrant’s remembered youth and the nearly forgotten costs and sacrifices of becoming an American. It’s the fall of 1977, and amid the lovely, leafy streets of Cambridge a young Harvard graduate student, a Jew from Egypt, longs more than anything to become an assimilated American and a professor of literature. He spends his days in a pleasant blur of 17th-century fiction, but when he meets a brash, charismatic Arab cab driver in a Harvard Square café, everything changes. Nicknamed Kalashnikov - Kalaj for short - for his machine-gun vitriol, the cab driver roars into the student’s life with his denunciations of the American obsession with ´´all things jumbo and ersatz´´ - Twinkies, monster television sets, all-you-can-eat buffets - and his outrageous declarations on love and the art of seduction. The student finds it hard to resist his new friend’s magnetism, and before long he begins to neglect his studies and live a double life: one in the rarefied world of Harvard, the other as an exile with Kalaj on the streets of Cambridge. Together they carouse the bars and cafés around Harvard Square, trade intimate accounts of their love affairs, argue about the American dream, and skinny-dip in Walden Pond. But as final exams loom and Kalaj has his license revoked and is threatened with deportation, the student faces the decision of his life: whether to cling to his dream of New-World assimilation or risk it all to defend his Old-World friend. Harvard Square is a sexually 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sanjiv Jhaveri. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/brll/004850/bk_brll_004850_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
