    Arrive hélas le temps, votre bibliothèque prenant des airs de librairie vagabonde, où la nécessité de son écrémage s'impose pour redonner de l'air à votre dix pièces-cuisine. Alors, l'âme en peine, mais la main cruelle, en route pour la chasse aux moutons noirs, vilains petits canards, brebis galeuses, corneilles blanches, j'en passe. Ce Suicide : mode d'emploi par exemple?? Anecdotique mais historique. Vous ne le relirez sans doute jamais. Et alors?? Le revendre à prix d'or sur eBay?? Voire... Ce Bagatelles pour un massacre?? Abominable, vomitif mais pièce à conviction. Ce Faut-il brûler Sardou?? Ce De Gaulle et le sexe vous font toujours hurler de rire rien qu'en les libérant de leur rangée poussiéreuse... D'ailleurs, leurs tranches sont un peu jaunies, car maladroitement héliotropées. Mais comment s'en séparer?? Et surtout, pourquoi?? Ah oui, les mètres carrés. Vous préféreriez peut-être vous séparer de cette machine à laver... Après tout, pourquoi pas?? L'essentiel est d'être entouré de ces ouvrages, même illisibles, même licencieux, même anecdotiques, ces amis permanents sachant tant se confier à vous les soirs de spleen que stimuler vos neurotransmetteurs les jours de béatitude. Vous l'aurez compris, du Livre de Thot à Sérotonine, en passant par Le Feu occulte, il y en aura pour tous les goûts.

  • Pourquoi le mot « dandy » serait-il réservé aux hommes ?
    L'histoire de cette mouvance d'origine anglo-française apparue vers 1800 montre que ce sont les hommes qui en ont posé les bases. Mais, près de deux siècles plus tard, n'est-il pas nécessaire de leur présenter celle qu'ils n'ont jamais vraiment reconnue : la « Lady Dandy » ?
    Car aucun de ce qu'on pourrait appeler les « dandy commandements » - élégance formelle, esprit, anticonformisme et surtout le fameux je-ne-sais-quoi, cette arme secrète qui permet de rester insaisissable - n'échappe aux compétences féminines.
    Des salons parisiens aux cocktails new-yorkais, de Sarah Bernhardt à Dorothy Parker en passant par Marlène Dietrich, de l'art de porter le pantalon à celui de faire scandale, du sens de la répartie aux mille et une façons de claquer son argent, ce livre démontrera que, oui, décidément, les femmes savent y faire.

  • Après le succès de L'Anthologie des bourdes et autres curiosités de la chanson française, Alister revisite avec une subjectivité toute assumée la quintessence des méchants qui ont marqué le cinéma français. Du patron voyou au politicien véreux, du collabo fielleux à la femme fatale la plus destructrice en passant par les beaufs de passage ou les flics ripoux, on redécouvre une palette de rôles plus inoubliables les uns que les autres, réservée à une élite de comédiens hauts en couleur - Bernard Blier, Michel Bouquet, Isabelle Huppert, Gérard Jugnot, Philippe Noiret, Michel Serrault, Jean Yanne etc. - et réunie ici pour la première fois et, surtout, pour le plus grand amour de votre haine.

  • "Le célèbre biologiste d'Oxford Richard Dawkins a écrit à propos de son ouvrage Pour en Finir avec Dieu : « Les croyants qui ouvriront ce livre seront athées quand ils le refermeront. » Largement commenté, ce bestseller a alimenté bien des débats passionnés.

    L'auteur britannique Alister McGrath est l'un des mieux qualifiés pour évaluer les arguments de Dawkins et des auteurs du nouvel athéisme (Daniel Dennett, Sam Harris). Athée lui-même dans sa jeunesse avant de devenir chrétien, McGrath a obtenu un doctorat en biophysique moléculaire à l'université d'Oxford avant de devenir un théologien mondialement reconnu. Admirateur du grand talent de vulgarisateur scientifique de Dawkins, McGrath examine rigoureusement ses critiques formulées à l'encontre de la foi chrétienne. Il aborde des questions telles que :

    La foi est-elle une aberration intellectuelle ?
    La foi et la science sont-elles vouées à une lutte à mort ?
    Les origines de la religion peuvent-elles être justifiées scientifiquement ?
    Le christianisme est-il une force maléfique ?
    Ce livre répondra à ceux qui se demandent si les arguments du Nouvel Athéisme sont scientifiquement et philosophiquement solides. Il passionnera ceux qui plus généralement s'interrogent sur le bien-fondé de la foi et la recherche d'un sens à la vie.

    « La vision utopique de Dawkins d'un monde sans religion est ici adroitement perforée par le discours éclairé de McGrath. Ce confrère d'Oxford témoigne clairement des lacunes, des incohérences et de l'étonnant manque de profondeur des arguments de Dawkins. » Owen Gingerich, Professeur d'astronomie à l'Université d'Harvard."

    Alister E. McGrath

    Natural theology, in the view of many, is in crisis. In this long-awaited book, Alister McGrath sets out a new vision for natural theology, re-establishing its legitimacy and utility. A timely and innovative resource on natural theology: the exploration of knowledge of God as it is observed through nature Written by internationally regarded theologian and author of numerous bestselling books, Alister McGrath Develops an intellectually rigorous vision of natural theology as a point of convergence between the Christian faith, the arts and literature, and the natural sciences, opening up important possibilities for dialogue and cross-fertilization Treats natural theology as a cultural phenomenon, broader than Christianity itself yet always possessing a distinctively Christian embodiment Explores topics including beauty, goodness, truth, and the theological imagination; how investigating nature gives rise to both theological and scientific theories; the idea of a distinctively Christian approach to nature; and how natural theology can function as a bridge between Christianity and other faiths.

    Croire, c est aussi, souvent, douter. Est-ce que je ne suis pas en train de me bercer d illusions? Est-ce qu il est vraiment possible, en toute lucidité, de croire au message de l Evangile? Est-ce que je peux réellement être utile à Dieu? Sur quoi repose, au fond, la foi chrétienne? L athéisme est-il plus fiable? C est à ces questions, et à d autres encore, qu Alister McGrath s intéresse. Il montre que, finalement, il n est pas anormal, pour un croyant, de douter, et que cela peut même être vu dans une perspective positive.
    Biographie de l'auteur:
    Né en 1953 en Irlande du Nord, Alister McGrath s est d abord tourné vers la science et l athéisme, avant d embrasser la foi chrétienne et de devenir professeur de théologie. Il est devenu président de l Oxford Center for Christian Apologetics.

  • "Sur la large bande de béton qui surplombait le vide, déjà encombrée par la cohorte des passagers en plein débarquement, je pris quelques instants pour laisser les chauds rayons d'un soleil ardent me caresser doucement la peau. Ici, les bienfaits de l'astre céleste ne se voyaient altérés par aucune couche de pollution. De la Mer Intérieure, qui s'ouvrait sous nos pieds, un vent du sud charriait jusqu'à nos narines une forte odeur iodée. Dans le ciel, en louvoyant prudemment entre les nombreux Zeppelins qui y manoeuvraient, volaient de blanches mouettes, en bandes désordonnées."

    Philip Konstantine et son assistante, Olyvia Drakenholme, des agents très spéciaux chargés d'éradiquer l'usage de la magie sur tout le territoire de l'Empire de Woltany, débarquent à Sérenissimia afin de s'assurer que rien ne vienne perturber le sommet économique international qui doit s'y dérouler.
    Diane d'Elmëané, ambassadrice du Duché d'Araakonie, arrive à ce même congrès accompagné par sa suite, avec la ferme intention d'expliquer que si l'Empire ne cesse pas son exploitation systématique des ressources naturelles, dans les seuls buts de croître et de se développer, il finira par raviver l'ancestrale colère des Fées de Lumière, qui depuis toujours, veillent sur l'équilibre du Monde et sur sa biodiversité.
    Mais Sérenissimia, antique Cité-État bâtie sur une lagune, dont les rues ne se parcourent qu'en bateau, dissimule bien d'autres secrets dans les eaux troubles de ses canaux.

    Cette première enquête de Philip Konstantine vous ouvrira les portes du 7ème Monde, au cours d'un thriller trépidant et plein de rebondissements, teinté de politique, de fantastique et de magie.
