A Bord-Glencoe French 2
Author: Conrad J. Schmitt, Katia Brillie Lutz
Publisher: Glencoe/McGraw-Hill School Publishing Company
Laurence Lemaire a rencontré plus de 30 Français résidents dans 14 villes chinoises. En Chine ils sont chef d'entreprise, gastronome, avocat, coiffeur de la jet-set, prêtre, propriétaire de bar, styliste, femme d'expat... Chacun d'eux raconte l'histoire de "son" Empire du Milieu. En effet, qui mieux qu'eux peut livrer les secrets du pays au touriste, à l'expatrié mais aussi au curieux qui ne peut voyager ? La Chine suscite la passion, la fascination, l'inquiétude, rarement l'indifférence. Son sens du raffinement, son goût particulier pour les mots, sa vénération pour l'éducation, la peinture, la cuisine... Les Français et les Chinois partagent beaucoup de valeurs malgré certains désaccords. On parle de choc de culture. Il est réel. Tout cela, Laurence Lemaire l'a appris d'une façon passionnante. Un beau livre illustré, à conserver parmi vos livres d'art ou à ranger dans votre valise. Un livre inclassable et original...
Includes, 1982-1995: Les Livres du mois, also published separately.
A Man's Place
Author: Annie Ernaux
Publisher: Seven Stories Press
Annie Ernaux's father died exactly two months after she passed her practical examination for a teaching certificate. Barely educated and valued since childhood strictly for his labor, Ernaux's father had grown into a hard, practical man who showed his family little affection. Narrating his slow ascent towards material comfort, Ernaux's cold observation reveals the shame that haunted her father throughout his life. She scrutinizes the importance he attributed to manners and language that came so unnaturally to him as he struggled to provide for his family with a grocery store and cafe in rural France. Over the course of the book, Ernaux grows up to become the uncompromising observer now familiar to the world, while her father matures into old age with a staid appreciation for life as it is and for a daughter he cautiously, even reluctantly admires. A Man's Place is the companion book to her critically acclaimed memoir about her mother, A Woman's Story.
