Paris, 1959. As dusk settles over the immigrant quarter, 12-year-old Michel Marini--amateur photographer and compulsive reader--is drawn to the hum of the local bistro. From his usual position at the football table, he has a vantage point on a grown-up world--of rock 'n' roll and of the Algerian War. But as the sun sinks and the plastic players spin, Michel's concentration is not on the game, but on the huddle of men gathered in the shadows of a back room. Past the bar, behind a partly drawn curtain, a group of eastern European men gather, where under a cirrus of smoke and over the squares of chess boards, they tell of their lives before France--of lovers and wives, children and ambitions, all exiled behind the Iron Curtain. Listening to this band of survivors and raconteurs, Michel is introduced to a world beyond the boundaries of his childhood experience, a world of men made formidable in the face of history, ideas and politics: the world of the Incorrigible Optimists Club.

How far would you go to avenge the one you love? Would you go beyond death? Born into the stifling confines of French upper society, Babette Varanus never thought that she would have to answer that question. Surrounded by wealth yet ostracized by her peers, Babette had little interest in love until she met Korbinian, a scandalous German baron with the audacity to regard her as his equal. But when the intrigues of her grandfather's enemies conspire to tear them apart, Varanus will embark upon a journey of vengeance, love, and redemption that will take her beyond the limitations of mortality and reveal to her the dark forces that command humanity from the shadows. Faced with madness, murder, hidden cults, and erudite vampires, does she have the strength to withstand the storm that rises against her?

"Padura’s Heretics spans and defies literary categories . . . ingenious." —Maureen Corrigan, Fresh Air A sweeping novel of art theft, anti-Semitism, contemporary Cuba, and crime from a renowned Cuban author, Heretics is Leonardo Padura's greatest detective work yet. In 1939, the Saint Louis sails from Hamburg into Havana’s port with hundreds of Jewish refugees seeking asylum from the Nazi regime. From the docks, nine-year-old Daniel Kaminsky watches as the passengers, including his mother, father, and sister, become embroiled in a fiasco of Cuban corruption. But the Kaminskys have a treasure that they hope will save them: a small Rembrandt portrait of Christ. Yet six days later the vessel is forced to leave the harbor with the family, bound for the horrors of Europe. The Kaminskys, along with their priceless heirloom, disappear. Nearly seven decades later, the Rembrandt reappears in an auction house in London, prompting Daniel’s son to travel to Cuba to track down the story of his family’s lost masterpiece. He hires the down-on-his-luck private detective Mario Conde, and together they navigate a web of deception and violence in the morally complex city of Havana. In Heretics, Leonardo Padura takes us from the tenements and beaches of Cuba to Rembrandt’s gloomy studio in seventeenth-century Amsterdam, telling the story of people forced to choose between the tenets of their faith and the realities of the world, between their personal desires and the demands of their times. A grand detective story and a moving historical drama, Padura’s novel is as compelling, mysterious, and enduring as the painting at its center.

"Writing in a lively and refreshingly clear American English, Zimmerman provides an uncompromisingly honest and judicious account... of Heidegger's views on technology and his involvement with National Socialism.... One of the most important books on Heidegger in recent years." -- John D. Caputo "... superb... " -- Thomas Sheehan, The New York Review of Books "... thorough and complex... " -- Choice "... excellent guide to Heidegger as eco-philosopher." -- Radical Philosophy "... engrossing, rich in substance... makes clear Heidegger's importance for the issue of technology, ethics, and politics." -- Religious Studies Review The relation between Martin Heidegger's understanding of technology and his affiliation with and conception of National Socialism is the leading idea of this fascinating and revealing book. Zimmerman shows that the key to the relation between Heidegger's philosophy and his politics was his concern with the nature of working and production.

The book starts by analyzing the problem of how we can see so well despite what, to an engineer, might seem like horrendous defects of our eyes. An explanation is provided by a new way of thinking about seeing, the "sensorimotor" approach. In the second part of the book the sensorimotor approach is extended to all sensory experience. It is used to elucidate an outstanding mystery of consciousness, namely why, unlike today's robots, humans actually can feel things. The approach makes predictions and opens research avenues, among them the phenomena of change blindness, sensory substitution, and "looked but failed to see", as well as results on color naming and color perception and the localisation of touch on the body.

Shortlisted for the Man Booker International Prize 2017 Nobody can leave an island. An island is a cosmos in a nutshell, where the stars slumber in the grass beneath the snow. But occasionally someone tries . . . Ingrid Barr�y is born on an island that bears her name - a holdfast for a single family, their livestock, their crops, their hopes and dreams. Her father dreams of building a quay that will connect them to the mainland, but closer ties to the wider world come at a price. Her mother has her own dreams - more children, a smaller island, a different life - and there is one question Ingrid must never ask her. Island life is hard, a living scratched from the dirt or trawled from the sea, so when Ingrid comes of age, she is sent to the mainland to work for one of the wealthy families on the coast. But Norway too is waking up to a wider world, a modern world that is capricious and can be cruel. Tragedy strikes, and Ingrid must fight to protect the home she thought she had left behind. Translated from the Norwegian by Don Bartlett and Don Shaw

Tom Larch est-il vraiment immortel ? Aucun être humain n'aurait pu survivre aux accidents dont il s'est tiré. A-t-il un secret qui le protège des coups du sort ? Ou un ange gardien qui veille sur lui ? Est-ce le hasard ou son instinct de vie qui lui permet de s'en sortir à chaque fois ? Obligé de quitter New Delhi pour Londres à huit ans, Tom est depuis toujours écartelé entre ses deux cultures. Celle de sa mère, indienne, et celle de son père, ingénieur anglais. A dix-huit ans, il s'engage dans les Royal Marines, et devient un héros, malgré lui. Rendu à la vie civile, il devra affronter ses propres démons quand l'un des hommes les plus riches du monde lui demandera d'aller en Inde à la recherche de son fils, que Tom est le seul à pouvoir retrouver. Formidable conteur, Jean-Michel Guenassia nous entraîne à la suite de Tom Larch dont le destin se mêle aux tumultes de l'Histoire. Comme dans Le Club des incorrigibles optimistes, il convoque avec maestria dans ce roman magistral tout ce qui fait notre XXIe siècle.

« Moi, je me plais dissimulé dans le clair-obscur. Ou perché tout en haut, comme un équilibriste au-dessus du vide. Je refuse de choisir mon camp, je préfère le danger de la frontière. Si un soir, vous me croisez dans le métro ou dans un bar, vous allez obligatoirement me dévisager, avec embarras, probablement cela vous troublera, et LA question viendra vous tarauder : est-ce un homme ou une femme ? Et vous ne pourrez pas y répondre. » De l'influence de David Bowie sur la destinée des jeunes filles nous fait partager l'histoire improbable, drôle et tendre, d'une famille joliment déglinguée dont Paul est le héros peu ordinaire. Paul qui, malgré ses allures de filles, aime exclusivement les femmes. Paul, qui a deux mères et n'a jamais connu son père. Paul, que le hasard de sa naissance va mener sur la route d'un célèbre androgyne : David Bowie. Fantaisiste et généreux, le nouveau roman de Jean-Michel Guenassia, l'auteur du Club des incorrigibles optimistes, nous détourne avec grâce des chemins tout tracés pour nous faire gouter aux charmes de l'incertitude.
