La suite très attendue des Piliers de la terre, le plus grand succès mondial de Ken Follett. Ken Follett a conquis le monde avec Les Piliers de la terre (1990), phénoménale saga qui prenait place dans l Angleterre du XIIe siècle, au rythme de la construction d une majestueuse cathédrale gothique. Deux siècles plus tard, autour du même édifice, nous retrouvons les descendants de ces héros, dans la ville fictive de Kingsbridge... 1327. Quatre enfants sont les témoins d une poursuite meurtrière dans les bois : un chevalier tue deux soldats au service de la reine, avant d enfouir dans le sol une lettre mystérieuse, dont le secret pourrait bien mettre en danger la couronne d Angleterre. Ce jour scellera à jamais leurs destinées...

Prospérités éphémères, famines, guerres cruelles, ravages féroces de la peste noire... Appuyée sur une documentation historique remarquable, cette fresque épique dépeint avec virtuosité toutes les émotions humaines, à travers un demi-siècle d histoire mouvementée

Then we came to the end : a novel by Joshua Ferris( Book )
2 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in French and held by 14 libraries worldwide
No one knows us quite the same way as the men and women who sit beside us in department meetings and crowd the office refrigerator with their labeled yogurts.? Every office is a family of sorts, and the ad agency Joshua Ferris brilliantly depicts in his debut novel is family at its strangest and best, coping with a business downturn in the time-honored way: through gossip, pranks, and increasingly frequent coffee breaks.???? With a demon's eye for the details that make life worth noticing, Joshua Ferris tells a true and funny story about survival in life's strangest environment--the one we pretend is normal five days a week
Infidel by Ayaan Hirsi Ali( Book )
2 editions published in 2008 in French and held by 11 libraries worldwide
Ultimately a celebration of triumph over adversity, the author's story tells how a bright little girl evolved out of dutiful obedience to become an outspoken, pioneering freedom fighter. As Western governments struggle to balance democratic ideals with religious pressures, no story could be timelier or more significant. In this memoir she tells her astonishing life story, from her traditional Muslim childhood in Somalia, Saudi Arabia, and Kenya, to her intellectual awakening and activism in the Netherlands, and her current life under armed guard in the West. She burst into international headlines following an Islamist's murder of her colleague, Theo van Gogh, with whom she made the movie Submission. This is the story of the coming of age of this political superstar and champion of free speech. With a gimlet eye and measured, often ironic, voice, she recounts the evolution of her beliefs, her ironclad will, and her extraordinary resolve to fight injustice done in the name of religion. Raised in a strict Muslim family and extended clan, she saw civil war, female mutilation, brutal beatings, adolescence as a devout believer during the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood, and life in four troubled, unstable countries largely ruled by despots. In her early twenties, she escaped from a forced marriage and sought asylum in the Netherlands, where she earned a college degree in political science, tried to help her tragically depressed sister adjust to the West, and fought for the rights of Muslim immigrant women and the reform of Islam as a member of Parliament. Even though she is under constant threat, demonized by reactionary Islamists and politicians, disowned by her father, and expelled from her family and clan, she refuses to be silenced
I am Radar by Reif Larsen( Book )
2 editions published in 2016 in French and held by 4 libraries worldwide
"In 1975, a black child named Radar Radmanovic is mysteriously born to white parents. Though Radar is raised in suburban New Jersey, his story rapidly becomes entangled with terrible events in Yugoslavia, Norway, Cambodia, the Congo, and beyond. Falling in with a secretive group of puppeteers and scientists--who stage experimental art for people suffering under war-time sieges-- Radar is forced to confront the true nature of his identity. In the wreckage of the twentieth century, the characters of I Am Radar hunt for what life and art can still be salvaged. During the civil wars of Yugoslavia, two brothers walk shockingly different paths: one into the rapacious paramilitary forces terrorizing the countryside, the other into the surreal world of besieged Belgrade. In arctic Norway, resistance schoolteachers steal radioactive material from a secret Nazi nuclear reactor to stage a dramatic art performance, with no witnesses. In the years before Cambodia's murderous Khmer Rouge regime, an expatriate French landowner adopts an abandoned native child and creates a lifelong scientific experiment of his new son's education. In the modern-day Congo, a disfigured literature professor assembles the world's largest library in the futile hope that the books will cement a peace in the war-torn country. All of these stories are united in the New Jersey Meadowlands, where a radio operator named Radar struggles with a horrible medical affliction, a set of hapless parents, and--only now, as an adult--all too ordinary white skin"--
