PRIX SAGA CAFE 2014: MEILLEUR PREMIER ROMAN BELGE Les hommes sont omniprésents dans cet immeuble de femmes... dans leurs nostalgies, leurs blessures, leurs colères et leurs désirs enfouis. Cinq femmes d'âges et d'univers différents unies par un point commun fort : elles ne veulent plus entendre parler d'amour et ont inventé une autre manière de vivre ... Jusqu'au jour où une nouvelle locataire vient bouleverser leur quotidien. Juliette est séduite par leur complicité, leur courage et leurs grains de folie. Mais elle, elle, n'a pas du tout renoncé ! Et elle le clame haut et fort. Va-t'elle faire vaciller les belles certitudes de ses voisines ? Ce roman vif et tendre oscille entre humour et gravité pour nous parler de la difficulté d'aimer, des choix existentiels, des fêlures des êtres humains et de leur soif de bonheur. On s'y sent bien.

Low-life writer and unrepentant alcoholic Henry Chinaski was born to survive. After decades of slacking off at low-paying dead-end jobs, blowing his cash on booze and women, and scrimping by in flea-bitten apartments, Chinaski sees his poetic star rising at last. Now, at fifty, he is reveling in his sudden rock-star life, running three hundred hangovers a year, and maintaining a sex life that would cripple Casanova. With all of Bukowski's trademark humor and gritty, dark honesty, this 1978 follow-up to Post Office and Factotum is an uncompromising account of life on the edge.

Four narrators, a student from a café, a private detective hired by an aggrieved husband, the heroine herself and one of her lovers, construct a portrait of Jacqueline Delanque, otherwise known as Louki. The daughter of a single mother who works in the Moulin Rouge, Louki grows up in poverty in Montmartre. Her one attempt to escape her background fails when she is rejected from the Lycée Jules-Ferry. She meanders on through life, into a cocaine habit, and to frequenting the Café Condé, whose regulars begin calling her "Louki". She drifts into marriage with a real estate agency director, but finds no satisfaction with him or his friends and so makes the simple decision not to return to him one evening. She turns instead to a young man almost as aimless and adrift as she, but who perhaps loves her all the same. Ever-present through this story is the city of Paris, almost another character in her own right. This is the Paris of 'no-man's-lands', of lonely journeys on the last metro, or nocturnal walks along empty boulevards; of cafés where the lost youth wander in, searching for meaning, and the older generation sift through their memories of their own long-gone adolescence.

Zanevřít na muže nebude tak snadné... V tomto domě žen jsou muži všudypřítomní... v jejich nostalgických vzpomínkách. Pět žen různého věku a z různých prostředí má společné jediné: nechtějí už ani slyšet o lásce a rozhodly se žít bez mužů. Až do okamžiku, kdy poklidnou hladinu jejich života rozbouří nová nájemnice. Juliette se líbí jejich přátelství a semknutost, jejich odvaha a jejich nekonformnost. Ale ona rozhodně na muže nerezignovala! A mluví o tom nahlas. Naruší spolehlivé jistoty svých sousedek? „Poslyšte, vy nová, vysvětlila vám Carla pořádně domovní řád?“ „Jen v hrubých rysech.“ „Tady platí přísná pravidla! Žádní manželé, žádní milenci, žádní instalatéři, žádní elektrikáři.“ „Žádní donašeči pizzy.“ „Žádní chlapi!“ „Žádní chlapi?“ vykoktá Juliette. Karin Lamber je belgická fotografka. Její snímky jsou plné emocí, radosti, křehkosti, pravdivosti. Miluje knihy a vždy snila o tom, že jednou také napíše knihu. Ale ať fotografuje, nebo píše, vždy zachycuje to, co se jí bezprostředně týká. Její prvotina Dum žen bez mužů (L’immeuble des femme qui ont renoncé aux hommes) jí v roce 2014 vynesla cenu Prix Saga Café za nejlepší belgický literární debut. Vzápětí byla přeložena do řady jazyků. V letošním roce jí vyšla druhá kniha s názvem Eh bien dansons maintenant! (Tak a nyní se pusťme do tance!). Karine Lambert žije v Bruselu.

Renée is the concierge of a grand Parisian apartment building, home to members of the great and the good. Over the years she has maintained her carefully constructed persona as someone reliable but totally uncultivated, in keeping, she feels, with society's expectations of what a concierge should be. But beneath this façade lies the real Renée: passionate about culture and the arts, and more knowledgeable in many ways than her employers with their outwardly successful but emotionally void lives. Down in her lodge, apart from weekly visits by her one friend Manuela, Renée lives resigned to her lonely lot with only her cat for company. Meanwhile, several floors up, twelve-year-old Paloma Josse is determined to avoid the pampered and vacuous future laid out for her, and decides to end her life on her thirteenth birthday. But unknown to them both, the sudden death of one of their privileged neighbours will dramatically alter their lives forever.
