This is the winner of the Wellcome book prize 2014. It is a New York Times Bestseller. Sometimes your child – the most familiar person of all – is radically different from you. The saying goes that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. But what happens when it does? Drawing on interviews with over three hundred families, covering subjects including deafness, dwarfs, Down’s Syndrome, Autism, Schizophrenia, disability, prodigies, children born of rape, children convicted of crime and transgender people, Andrew Solomon documents ordinary people making courageous choices. Difference is potentially isolating, but Far from the Tree celebrates repeated triumphs of human love and compassion to show that the shared experience of difference is what unites us. It is the winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award for General Non-fiction and eleven other national awards. It is the winner of the Green Carnation Prize.

“When you die, it does not mean that you lose to cancer. You beat cancer by how you live, why you live, and the manner in which you live.” – Stuart Scott The fearless, intimate, and inspiring story behind ESPN anchor Stuart Scott’s unrelenting fight against cancer, with a foreword by Robin Roberts. Shortly before he passed away, on January 4, 2015, Stuart Scott completed work on this memoir. It was both a labor of love and a love letter to life itself. Not only did Stuart relate his personal story–his childhood in North Carolina, his supportive family, his athletic escapades, his on-the-job training as a fledgling sportscaster, his being hired and eventual triumphs at ESPN–he shared his intimate struggles to keep his story going. Struck by appendiceal cancer in 2007, Stuart battled this rare disease with an unimaginable tenacity and vigor. Countless surgeries, enervating chemotherapies, endless shuttling from home to hospital to office and back–Stuart continued defying fate, pushing himself through exercises and workout routines that kept him strong. He wanted to be there for his teenage daughters, Sydni and Taelor, not simply as their dad, but as an immutable example of determination and courage. “Every Day I Fight” is a saga of love, an inspiration to us all.

Ce est un succès de librairie [Dreamland: Adventures in the Strange Science of Sleep] (By: David K. Randall) [published: September, 2013] tend à Sellout TRES RAPIDEMENT !!

[Dreamland:

Journalist David K. Randall never gave sleep much thought. That is, until he began sleepwalking and a midnight crash into a wall sent him on an investigation into the strange science of sleep. In Dreamland, Randall explores the research investigating those dark hours that make up nearly a third of our lives. Taking readers from military battlefields to children’s bedrooms, Dreamland shows that sleep isn’t as simple as it seems. Among other questions, he looks at whether women sleep differently to men and, if you happen to kill someone while you are sleepwalking, whether it counts as murder. This book is a tour of the often odd, sometimes disturbing and always fascinating things that go on in the peculiar world of sleep.

Ce est un succès de librairie [Mr. Fox] (By: Helen Oyeyemi) [published: September, 2011] tend à Sellout TRES RAPIDEMENT !!

.

[Mr.

From a prizewinning young writer, a brilliant and inventive story of love, lies, and inspiration. Fairy-tale romances end with a wedding, and the fairy tales don’t get complicated. In this book, the celebrated writer Mr. Fox can’t stop himself from killing off the heroines of his novels, and neither can his wife, Daphne. It’s not until Mary, his muse, comes to life and transforms him from author into subject that his story begins to unfold differently.Mary challenges Mr. Fox to join her in stories of their own devising; and in different times and places, the two of them seek each other, find each other, thwart each other, and try to stay together, even when the roles they inhabit seem to forbid it. Their adventures twist the fairy tale into nine variations, exploding and teasing conventions of genre and romance, and each iteration explores the fears that come with accepting a lifelong bond. Meanwhile, Daphne becomes convinced that her husband is having an affair, and finds her way into Mary and Mr. Fox’s game. And so Mr. Fox is offered a choice: Will it be a life with the girl of his dreams, or a life with an all-too-real woman who delights him more than he cares to admit?The extraordinarily gifted Helen Oyeyemi has written a love story like no other. “Mr. Fox” is a magical book, endlessly inventive, as witty and charming as it is profound in its truths about how we learn to be with one another.

The Complete Novels of Sherlock Holmes includes A Study in Scarlet, The Sign of the Four, The Hound of the Baskervilles, and The Valley of Fear, and thirty-seven short stories from the Adventures, Memoirs and Return of Sherlock Holmes. Included are illustrations by Sidney Paget, George Hutchinson, James Greig, E. S. Morris & Charles Kerr.
