Ma Cure de silence Et si on essayait le calme
Une nonne bouddhiste française raconte son silence à elle et propose de nombreux conseils pour " faire silence " au quotidien et vivre plus heureux. Débordés par nos emplois du temps, les exigences de notre entourage et de notre vie professionnelle, et même notre propre petite voix intérieure, nous aspirons tous à davantage d'équilibre et de sérénité. Et si le mieux-être passait par une cure de silence ? Une démarche à la portée de tous, ici et maintenant. Kankyo Tannier propose, avec un ton vivant, amusant, et très personnel, de nous faire partager son expérience du silence. Silence des mots, bien sûr, pour accueillir ce qui se passe autour de nous. Silence visuel aussi, quand nos yeux n'en peuvent plus de se voir imposer des informations inutiles. Silence du corps, enfin, pour apprendre à écouter ce que celui-ci a à nous dire. Rapport au temps, respiration, auto-hypnose, écoute active, etc : elle nous donne toutes les clés nécessaires à la pratique de ce silence quotidien, au sens propre comme au sens figuré

Impish, foul-mouthed Zazie arrives in Paris from the country to stay with Gabriel, her female-impersonator uncle. All she really wants to do is ride the metro, but finding it shut because of a strike, Zazie looks for other means of amusement and is soon caught up in a comic adventure that becomes wilder and more manic by the minute. In 1960 Queneau's cult classic was made into a hugely successful film by Louis Malle. Packed full of word play and phonetic games, Zazie in the Metro remains as stylish and witty as ever.

A gripping tale of human unrelieved horror, of survival and resilience, and of the ways in which humankind confronts death, The Plague is at once a masterfully crafted novel, eloquently understated and epic in scope, and a parable of ageless moral resonance, profoundly relevant to our times. In Oran, a coastal town in North Africa, the plague begins as a series of portents, unheeded by the people. It gradually becomes a omnipresent reality, obliterating all traces of the past and driving its victims to almost unearthly extremes of suffering, madness, and compassion.
Regarded as one of Sand's best novels, Lélia is an important document in the evolution of women's consciousness. Published in 1833, when Sand was 29, it stunned Victorians by advocating the same standard of morality for men and women and by suggesting that both the prostitute and the married woman were slaves to male desire. Sand also questioned monogamy, fidelity, and monastic celibacy. She later made an unsuccessful attempt to revise the book and to expunge its despair and skepticism. Although Sand wrote copiously, until recently only a handful of her books were available in English. This first English translation of Lélia is an excellent rendering, capturing the raptures, the mysticism, and the nineteenth-century flavor ot its eternally fascinating subject.
