L'Apiculteur d'Alep by Christy Lefteri Summary

Nuri est apiculteur, sa femme, Afra, est artiste. Ils vivent tous deux avec leur jeune fils, Sami, dans la magnifique ville d'Alep, en Syrie. La guerre éclate et ravage tout, jusqu'aux précieuses ruches de Nuri. Et l'inimaginable se produit. Afra ne veut plus bouger de sa chambre. Pourtant, ils n'ont pas le choix et Nuri déploie des trésors d'affection pour la convaincre de partir. Fous de douleur, impuissants, ils entament alors un long périple où ils devront apprendre à faire le deuil de tout ce qu'ils ont aimé. Et apprendre à se retrouver, peut-être, à la fin du voyage, dans un Londres où les attendent des êtres proches. Pour reconstruire les ruches et leur vie. Christy Lefteri est née à Londres de parents chypriotes. Elle anime un atelier d'écriture à l'université Brunel. L'Apiculteur d'Alep, son deuxième roman, lui a été inspiré par son travail de bénévole dans un camp de migrants à Athènes. "Derrière l'immense tragédie impersonnelle des réfugiés, Christy Lefteri fait émerger une histoire personnelle subtile et bouleversante." Kirkus Review "Impossible de ne pas être touché par cette ode à l'humanité." The Guardian Traduit de l'anglais par Karine Lalechère

Ces désirs étaient si forts que je risquais de ne plus pouvoir me maîtriser. Je ne m’en serais pas cru capable, pourtant j’étais déjà allée très loin. Trop loin. Et une fois les limites franchies, on ne revient jamais en arrière. »

Christy Mathewson by Michael Hartley Summary

Mathewson, one of the towering figures in baseball history, won 373 games in 17 seasons, all but one of those victories for the New York Giants. After his playing career, he was a manager, army officer and baseball executive, played a role in the unraveling of the Black Sox, and fought a courageous battle against tuberculosis. A man with a keen sense of honor and responsibility for both private and public obligations, he was adored by the public as a real-life Frank Merriwell. In the decades since his death, the perception of Mathewson has changed remarkably little. This biography documents in great depth his life on and off the baseball field, and draws from sources, old and new, to let Mathewson's life speak for itself. Not many sports figures can withstand such scrutiny.

Christy Brown by Georgina Louise Hambleton Summary

Christy Brown was severely disabled with cerebral palsy, unable to use any part of his body other than his left foot. Doctors said he was a 'mental defective' and that he would never be able to lead any kind of normal life; Christy proved them wrong. His mother taught him to write using chalk on the worn floor of their small home, and Christy grew into a talented artist and writer. His 1954 memoir My Left Foot was made into an Oscar-winning film starring Daniel Day-Lewis, while his bestselling novel Down All the Days was described by the Irish Times as 'the most important novel since Ulysses'. Using previously unpublished letters and poems, this first authorised biography marks Christy Brown's importance as a writer and celebrates his indomitable spirit. His story proves that, with hope and determination, almost impossible odds can be overcome.
