From the award-winning, nationally bestselling author of A Golden Age and The Good Muslim comes a lyrical, deeply moving modern love story about belonging, migration, tragedy, survival, and the mysteries of origins. On the eve of her departure to find the bones of the walking whale—the fossil that provides a missing link in our evolution—Zubaida Haque falls in love with Elijah Strong, a man she meets in a darkened concert hall in Boston. Their connection is immediate and intense, despite their differences: Elijah belongs to a prototypical American family; Zubaida is the adopted daughter of a wealthy Bangladeshi family in Dhaka. When a twist of fate sends her back to her hometown, the inevitable force of society compels her to take a very different path: she marries her childhood best friend and settles into a traditional Bangladeshi life. While her family is pleased by her obedience, Zubaida seethes with discontent. Desperate to finally free herself from her familial constraints, she moves to Chittagong to work on a documentary film about the infamous beaches where ships are destroyed, and their remains salvaged by locals who depend on the goods for their survival. Among them is Anwar, a shipbreaker whose story holds a key that will unlock the mysteries of Zubaida’s past—and the possibilities of a new life. As she witnesses a ship being torn down to its bones, this woman torn between the social mores of her two homes—Bangladesh and America—will be forced to strip away the vestiges of her own life . . . and make a choice from which she can never turn back.

This witty autobiography captures the rich and varied life of a renowned French author and pioneering feminist, through the obstacles and movements in twentieth-century France. Born in 1920 in Paris, Benoite Groult obtained the right to vote only when she was twenty-five years old. She married four times, bore three children, underwent several illegal abortions, became a writer after she turned forty, and a feminist in her fifties. Groult chronicles her experiences and her intellectual developments through successive phases—as an obedient child, an awkward and bookish adolescent, and a submissive wife—until finally becoming a liberated novelist. Here, she recounts the childhood trips she spent with her family, Paris during the occupation, her marriages, motherhood, and her continuous fight for women’s rights. At ninety-one years old, she concludes that she has been, and still is, a happy woman—lucky to have captured her freedoms, one by one, paying for them, delighting in them, and loving them. Sexy, chatty, and full of shrewd insight, My Escape covers her years of struggle and success—as a daughter, lover, writer, wife, mother, and reluctant socialite—and draws a portrait of the role of French women in the twentieth century.

After the war with France has ended in 1818, Captain Adam Bolitho is given command of the newly commissioned frigate "Onward" and sent to North Africa on a diplomatic mission to accompany the French frigate "Nautilus" in a show of solidarity. He knows he is lucky--the voyage should be easy; but Adam longs for a chance to marry the beautiful Lowenna and settle down on the Bolitho estate in Cornwall. Instead he must deal with the envy and ambition of his officers, hidden agendas among his men, and the former enemy's proximity. Then the "Nautilus" becomes a sacrificial offering on the altar of Empire, and the hunt is on for a treacherous foe. Suddenly every man must discover for himself whether the brotherhood of the sea can transcend old hatreds and an ocean of blood.

" Il n'est pas inutile, après vingt-cinq ans, d'analyser la place d'Ainsi soit-elle. C'est bien, je crois, parce qu'il a eu une fonction dans le féminisme contemporain, une place à part. L'une des fonctions essentielles de ce livre, pour toute une génération, est sans doute d'avoir été un pont entre les jeunes féministes et leurs mères. Leurs mères, même si elles étaient bienveillantes avec leurs filles, étaient souvent déroutées, dans les années soixante-dix, par leurs filles militantes. Par leur radicalité, la mixité, une certaine forme de violence qui paraissait nécessaire à beaucoup, mais certainement pas aux mères. Et soudain, avec Ainsi soit-elle, une femme de leur âge prenait la parole, une femme qui avait elle-même des filles. Et elle leur racontait son histoire qui était souvent la leur, ou une partie de la leur. Et elle leur disait non seulement de regarder le féminisme avec intérêt, mais de rejoindre elles-mêmes le combat, de toute urgence. " Josyane Savigneau.
