• Les Oxenberg & les Bernstein

    Catalin Mihuleac

    Parution : 20 Août 2020 - Entrée pnb : 22 Mai 2020

    « Ici repose pour l'éternité Joseph Bernstein, le rabbin des produits vintage. Si vous allez au Paradis, faites appel à lui pour une paire d'ailes bonnes et pas chères, story included. Si vous vous retrouvez en Enfer, des cornes et des sabots comme chez lui, vous n'en trouverez nulle part. »
    Voici une famille de Juifs américains, les Bernstein, qui a réussi à Washington DC dans les années 1990 grâce au commerce en gros de vêtements vintage. Persuadés que tout, désormais, des habits aux idées en passant par les sentiments, est plus ou moins de « seconde main », ils s'efforcent de ne voir dans le passé qu'une valeur ajoutée.
    Soixante ans plus tôt, de l'autre côté de l'Atlantique, les Oxenberg achèvent de se hisser parmi la bonne société de la ville de Iasi, dans l'étrange royaume de Roumanie. Jacques Oxenberg, dont on vante « les doigts beethovéniens », est le meilleur obstétricien de la région. Il vient d'offrir une auto à son épouse, laquelle lui a donné deux beaux enfants. Un gramophone égaye les soirées de leur jolie maison, mais dehors... les voix rauques de la haine commencent à gronder.
    Lorsque la riche Dora Bernstein et son fils Ben se rendront à Iasi, durant l'été de 2001, les deux histoires se rejoindront, entre secrets de famille et zones d'ombre de la mémoire collective.
    Catalin Mihuleac, né en 1960 à Iasi, dans le nord-est de la Roumanie, a travaillé une demi-douzaine d'années en tant que géologue. À la chute du régime communiste, il a entamé une carrière de journaliste, tout en publiant ses premiers textes satiriques. La parution de son roman Les Oxenberg & les Bernstein fut un événement en Roumanie, ainsi qu'en Allemagne où l'on a salué sa très grande originalité et sa force narrative imparable pour évoquer l'un des plus grands tabous de l'histoire roumaine contemporaine, le pogrom de Iasi.

  • La cité des ténèbres et autres voyages excentriques

    Léon Groc

    Parution : 15 Décembre 2012 - Entrée pnb : 2 Octobre 2019

    Un fort volume réunissant trois romans de Léon Groc (1882-1956), grand romancier français populaire très injustement négligé : La Cité des Ténèbres (1926), Une invasion de Sélénites (1941) et La Planète de cristal (1944). Il s'agit de trois chefs-d'oeuvres qu'il nous semble important de faire aujourd'hui redécouvrir. L'aventure scientifique est de retour : il faut explorer les cavernes mystérieuses cachées sous la mer ; il faut lutter contre l'invasion des extraterrestres venus de la Lune ; il faut partir vers le lointain astre de cristal ! Suspense, dangers, énigmes et découvertes : tout le charme puissant d'une certaine anticipation.

  • This comic ebook presents "Little Nemo - The Complete Comic Strips (1913 - 1914) by Winsor McCay": 52 full color comic strips in ultra high definition (each page ca. 1700 pixels by 2200 pixels) for your eReader. Little Nemo is the main fictional character in a series of weekly comic strips by Winsor McCay that appeared in the New York Herald and William Randolph Hearst's New York American newspapers respectively from October 15, 1905 - July 23, 1911 and September 3, 1911 - July 26, 1914. The strip was first called "Little Nemo in Slumberland" and then "In the Land of Wonderful Dreams" when it changed papers in 1911.
    Although a comic strip, Little Nemo is far from a simple children's fantasy; it is often dark, surreal, threatening, and even violent. The original set-up of the comic revolved around the nightly dreams of a little boy named Nemo (meaning "nobody" in Latin). The purpose of his early dreams was to reach 'Slumberland', the realm of King Morpheus, who wanted him as a playmate for his daughter, Princess Camille. The last panel in each strip was always one of Nemo waking up, usually in or near his bed, and often being scolded (or comforted) by one of the grownups of the household after crying out in his sleep and waking them. In the earliest strips, the dream event that woke him up would always be some mishap or disaster that seemed about to lead to serious injury or death, such as being crushed by giant mushrooms, being turned into a monkey, falling from a bridge being held up by slaves, or gaining 90 years in age. Later on, when Nemo finally did reach Slumberland, he was constantly being woken up by Flip, a character who originally wore a hat that had 'Wake Up' written on it. Flip would go on to be one of the comic's seminal characters. Other notable recurring characters included: Dr. Pill, The Imp, the Candy Kid and Santa Claus as well as the Princess and King Morpheus. Certain episodes of the strip are particularly famous. These include the Night of the Living Houses wherein Nemo and a friend are chased down a city street by a gang of tenement houses on legs; the Walking Bed, in which Nemo and Flip ride over the rooftops on the increasingly long limbs of Nemo's bed; and the Befuddle Hall sequence, wherein Nemo and his friends attempt to find their way out of a funhouse environment of a Beaux-Arts interior turned topsy-turvy. McCay's mastery of perspective, and the extreme elegance of his line work, make his visions graphically wondrous.

The last panel in each strip was always one of Nemo waking up, usually in or near his bed, and often being scolded (or comforted) by one of the grownups of the household after crying out in his sleep and waking them. In the earliest strips, the dream event that woke him up would always be some mishap or disaster that seemed about to lead to serious injury or death, such as being crushed by giant mushrooms, being turned into a monkey, falling from a bridge being held up by slaves, or gaining 90 years in age. Later on, when Nemo finally did reach Slumberland, he was constantly being woken up by Flip, a character who originally wore a hat that had 'Wake Up' written on it. Flip would go on to be one of the comic's seminal characters. Other notable recurring characters included: Dr. Pill, The Imp, the Candy Kid and Santa Claus as well as the Princess and King Morpheus. Certain episodes of the strip are particularly famous. These include the Night of the Living Houses wherein Nemo and a friend are chased down a city street by a gang of tenement houses on legs; the Walking Bed, in which Nemo and Flip ride over the rooftops on the increasingly long limbs of Nemo's bed; and the Befuddle Hall sequence, wherein Nemo and his friends attempt to find their way out of a funhouse environment of a Beaux-Arts interior turned topsy-turvy. McCay's mastery of perspective, and the extreme elegance of his line work, make his visions graphically wondrous.

  • L'effroyable vengeance de Panthéra

    Michel Pagel

    Parution : 18 Janvier 2020 - Entrée pnb : 11 Décembre 2019


    Qui est Panthéra ? se demande la France entière en cet automne 1963.

    Quelle est l'identité de cette créature tout de noir vêtue qui rôde nuitamment sur les toits ? Qui entre par effraction chez les notables ? Qui menace et qui tue ?
    On la sait femme, on la devine jeune, belle, on la suppose démoniaque... mais qu'en est-il vraiment ?
    Et si, sous ces dehors impitoyables, sanguinaires, se cachait une jeune fille sensible et bonne, contrainte de brimer sa vraie nature pour mener à bien l'effroyable mission vengeresse qu'elle s'est assignée ?
    De ses ennemis, de la police, de la presse ou des Faëriens venus sur Terre pour combattre les démons déchaînés par les nazis pendant la Deuxième Guerre mondiale, qui pourra bien répondre à toutes ces questions ?

  • Les Intemporels

    Jacques HOVEN

    Parution : 9 Juin 2016 - Entrée pnb : 8 Février 2017

    Des classiques de la S.F. française à découvrir chez 12-21 !

    Trois inconnus, naufragés dans l'Ailleurs, reprennent conscience dans un univers sphérique et vide. Ici, rien n'existe qu'eux-mêmes. Et leurs souvenirs :

    – En 2.112, croisant au large de Proxima, Feyfen a basculé avec son navire dans une faille de l'impossible...

    – En 2.223, Worel a voulu explorer le futur. Il a découvert à ses dépens que le Temps a horreur des paradoxes...

    – En 2.357, c'est vers le passé que Galvada a tenté le plongeon, pour résoudre l'énigme historique du Masque de fer...

    Ils ont inexplicablement émergé sur un bras mort du fleuve du temps, là où croupissent les eaux dormantes de la durée prise au piège de l'éternité. Présent, passé et futur se confondent. Pourtant, l'avenir existe bien quelque part, puisqu'ils perçoivent d'étranges murmures qui s'insinuent entre leurs pensées.
