Sailor et Lula by Barry Gifford Summary
Sailor, vingt-trois ans, vient de purger deux ans dans un pénitencier pour meurtre au deuxième degré. Lula, vingt ans, l'attend à la sortie. Mais la mère de Lula, Marietta, a interdit a sa fille de revoir Sailor. Les deux jeunes gens prennent alors la route. Marietta lance a leurs trousses un étrange détective privé, Johnnie Farragut. La cavale de Sailor et Lula à travers le sud des États-Unis fera dire à la jeune fille que le monde a vraiment le coeur sauvage. Barry Gifford est un styliste à la manière de McGuane, avec le coeur de Raymond Carver. (Jim Harrison) Comme Jim Harrison, Thomas McGuane ou Richard Ford, Gifford a le sens des dialogues. Des phrases cinglantes qui vous jettent à la figure la rumeur du monde, sa détresse et ses joies fugitives. Les personnages de Gifford ne possèdent rien. Rien sauf le blues. (Bernard Geniès, Le Nouvel Observateur) Sailor et Lula, porte à l'écran par David Lynch, a remporté la Palme d'Or au Festival de Cannes 1990.
Alaska wild by Ka Tucker Summary
Calla Flectcher avait tout juste 2 ans quand sa mère a quitté l'Alaska, fuyant la vie trop rude, et laissant derrière elle le père de Calla. Calla a aujourd'hui 26 ans et mène une vie bien remplie à Toronto. Lorsqu'elle apprend que les jours de son père, très malade, sont peut-être comptés, elle entreprend le voyage jusqu'à son village natal. Elle va alors découvrir le quotidien " à la dure ", les journées qui comptent peu d'heures de clarté, les nuits à la belle étoile... Elle va en profiter pour mieux connaître son père, à qui elle tient beaucoup malgré les erreurs qu'il a commises. Tandis qu'elle tente de s'adapter à ce nouvel environnement, Jonah – le pilote fier, débraillé et détestable qui l'aide à maintenir la compagnie d'hydravions de son père opérationnelle, a clairement hâte de renvoyer cette fille de la ville chez elle, persuadé qu'elle n'est pas du tout faite pour survivre à la rudesse de l'Alaska. Jonah a sûrement raison, mais Calla est déterminée à lui prouver le contraire. Elle va rapidement créer un lien très fort et inattendu avec le pilote : de l'amitié, ou peut-être quelque chose de plus profond ? Mais Calla ne compte pas rester en Alaska et Jonah ne compte pas partir. Va-t-elle, comme sa mère bien des années plus tôt, laisser une chance à cette histoire ?

Wild at Heart by John Eldredge Summary
John Eldredge revises and updates his best-selling, renowned Christian classic. God designed men to be dangerous, says John Eldredge. Simply look at the dreams and desires written in the heart of every boy: To be a hero, to be a warrior, to live a life of adventure and risk. Sadly, most men abandon those dreams and desires-aided by a Christianity that feels like nothing more than pressure to be a "nice guy." It is no wonder that many men avoid church, and those who go are often passive and bored to death. In this provocative book, Eldredge gives women a look inside the true heart of a man and gives men permission to be what God designed them to be-dangerous, passionate, alive, and free.
The Passion of David Lynch by Martha P. Nochimson Summary
Filmmaker David Lynch asserts that when he is directing, ninety percent of the time he doesn't know what he is doing. To understand Lynch's films, Martha Nochimson believes, requires a similar method of being open to the subconscious, of resisting the logical reductiveness of language. In this innovative book, she draws on these strategies to offer close readings of Lynch's films, informed by unprecedented, in-depth interviews with Lynch himself. Nochimson begins with a look at Lynch's visual influences—Jackson Pollock, Francis Bacon, and Edward Hopper—and his links to Alfred Hitchcock and Orson Welles, then moves into the heart of her study, in-depth analyses of Lynch's films and television productions. These include Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me, Wild at Heart, Twin Peaks, Blue Velvet, Dune, The Elephant Man, Eraserhead, The Grandmother, The Alphabet, and Lynch's most recent, Lost Highway. Nochimson's interpretations explode previous misconceptions of Lynch as a deviant filmmaker and misogynist. Instead, she shows how he subverts traditional Hollywood gender roles to offer an optimistic view that love and human connection are really possible.

Wild at Heart by Alice Outwater Summary
"Through a narrative that roams in unexpected directions through surprising details and history, then periodically grounds itself by looping back to her own family before it soars off again, Alice Outwater’s infectiously readable Wild at Heart captures the essence of ecology: Everything is connected, and every connection leads to ourselves." —Alan Weisman, author, The World Without Us and Countdown In the tradition of The World Without Us, a beautifully written and ultimately hopeful history of our relationship with the natural world Nature on the brink? Maybe not. With so much bad news in the world, we forget how much environmental progress has been made. In a narrative that reaches from Native American tribal practices to public health and commercial hunting, Wild at Heart shows how western attitudes towards nature have changed dramatically in the last five hundred years. The Chinook gave thanks for King Salmon's gifts. The Puritans saw Nature as a frightening wilderness, full of "uncooked meat." With the industrial revolution, nature was despoiled and simultaneously celebrated as a source of the sublime. With little forethought and great greed, Americans killed the last passenger pigeon, wiped out the old growth forests, and dumped so much oil in the rivers that they burst into flame. But in the span of a few decades, our relationship with nature has evolved to a more sophisticated sense of interdependence that brings us full circle. Across the US, people are taking individual action, planting native species and fighting for projects like dam removal and wolf restoration. Cities are embracing nature, too. Humans can learn from the past, and our choices today will determine whether nature survives. Like the First Nations, all nations must come to deep agreement that nature needs protection. This compelling book reveals both how we got here and our own and nature's astonishing ability to mutually regenerate.
