Wine, Tarts & Sex Susan Johnson


From the New York Times bestselling author whose torrid tales are "legendary" (Robin Shone) comes another steamy story-set in the kitchen. World-renowned chef Jake Chambers could have had any ingŽnue he wanted in California since the kitchen isn't the only room in the house where the hard-bodied hunk has special talents. Still, when he realized there might be more to life than glitz and silicone, he left for Minneapolis to buy a local joint and try to clear his head. But even though he's no longer serving the glitterati, that doesn't mean he's about to compromise quality and serve a Minnesota wine. However, local vintner Liv Bell-with curves even more delicious than his tapas-has other plans once she lays eyes on this Adonis. Determined to promote her vineyard's juicy bounty, this sun-kissed goddess might just bring Jake around to at least tasting what she has to offer.


A Stranger in a Strange Land Robert Heinlein


Reviews If any work of fiction will earn Robert Heinlein a permanent place on the collective bookshelf, it is going to be Stranger in a Strange Land, for the impact it has made on American society. If a person has not managed to read Strangerby now, then he has at least absorbed a bit of it osmotically, for it flows throughout our cultural consciousness. Perhaps least of all, it anticipated Nancy Reagan's reliance on astrology and spawned the water bed and the neologism "grok," (Heinlein's Martian verb for a thorough understanding), though "grok" would never have taken hold, had the young rebels of the 1960s not discovered Stranger as their counterculture bible. Some went even further and formed "nests" and churches based on what they found in Stranger; perhaps the most famous instance of that is the Church of All Worlds, a pagan group who lifted its name and logo intact from the book. Stranger has also begun to be included in many canonical college reading lists, and Billy Joel saw fit…


Steel Beach John Varley


John Varley's Steel Beach is a daring, well-conceived work of science fiction. Humanity has been ejected from Earth by enigmatic aliens trying to save cetaceans. Homo sapiens finds itself exiled to strongholds throughout the solar system, foremost of which is Luna. There, human beings live in great comfort with almost all of their needs met and very little to worry about. As a result, they are losing their minds. Through the unremarkable antagonist Hildy, Varley asks what happens to human beings who lack challenges and who lack any real direction. Comforts there are aplenty in Luna. Technology makes sex changes routine and has all but defeated death itself. So now what? Humanity has slumped into a self-absorbed torpor that would be bad enough if the unimaginably complex supercomputer that controls every aspect of Lunar life weren't on the edge of a catastrophic breakdown. Hildy gains an increasing awareness of this problem as the narrative progresses; and he (later she) manages to struggle…


Baise-moi Virginie Despentes


Prostitution, homosexualité, meurtres, vols… deux jeunes filles, Nadine et Manu, refusant de se résigner face à la vie, s'aventurent dans un monde immoral et sans loi. Prédatrices insatiables, elles nient défaites et frustrations, persuadées que ce qui ne les tuera pas les rendra plus fortes… " Voici du pain blanc pour cinquante ans de critique " écrivait Céline en rendant le manuscrit de Voyage au bout de la nuit. Ce n'est pas le cas du premier roman de Virginie Despentes, qu'on lui a pourtant longtemps comparé. Cette réédition en poche du livre par lequel le scandale est arrivé nous permet de constater à quel point on a fait beaucoup de bruit pour rien. Les aléas de la vie de Nadine et Manu, deux paumées en mal de sensations fortes, ont à peu près autant d'épaisseur qu'un Manix 00. Un sujet que nos deux héroïnes – le sexe – connaissent bien. Car aucun cliché ne nous est épargné: la prostitution, le meurtre de sang froid, l'argent, le vol, l'homosexualité……


Les chiennes savantes Virginie Despentes


Avec un langage tellement cru que l'on a du mal à croire qu'il puisse être réellement utilisé, Virginie Despentes raconte des histoires de dérive, de cavale, mais aussi de quotidien plus ou moins sordide. Les histoires sont poignantes, l'émotion suscitée par la lecture est vive. L'utilisation d'un tel langage permet d'affranchir la réalité racontée de tout filtre édulcorant: l'outrance permet de mieux appréhender les personnages que ne pourrait le permettre un langage plus normal (plus banal). L'utilisation de ce langage est un artifice d'auteur: le langage utilisé ne correspond pas au nôtre, et cela permet à l'auteur de nous projeter volontairement dans un tissu narratif dont les règles ne sont pas les règles que l'on a coutume de rencontrer; le langage nous force à penser et à ressentir d'une certaine manière. Ainsi, on construit sa représentation personnelle des personnages sur leurs actions et sur leurs paroles, tout en acceptant comme normalité la logique propre…


Mademoiselle De Maupin Théophile Gautier


La «Préface», oeuvre à part entière, fait date dans l'histoire littéraire. Sur un ton enlevé, perfide et caustique, l'auteur attaque les bien-pensants, représentants de la tartufferie et de la censure, et ceux qui voudraient voir un côté «utile» dans une oeuvre littéraire, alors que l'art, par définition non assujetti à la morale ou à l'utilité, échappe à la notion de progrès pour ne s'allier qu'à celle du plaisir. Le roman lui-même, en grande partie épistolaire, nous parle avant tout de l'Amour, du Sexe, de la Femme, de l'Homme, éternels sujets…


L’Enfer Henri Barbusse


Un homme las, blasé de tout, fatigué de la vie et de l'amour, qui n'a plus goût à rien, échoue dans un hôtel de province. On ne sait rien de lui, si ce n'est qu'il est âgé d'une trentaine d'années. Des bruits venant de la chambre voisine, attirent son attention. Il se lève, intrigué, et remarque en hauteur, sous le plafond, un trou qui lui permet de voir… Et il regardera… fasciné, les épisodes de la vie humaine qui se déroulent de l'autre coté. Le sexe, bien sûr, tient une place importante, chambre d'hôtel oblige. Par le prisme du héros, qui reprend goût à la vie, tout en se perdant, nous devenons également voyeurs. Le réalisme cru, mais empreint de lyrisme, et le sujet même de ce roman paru en 1908, n'ont probablement pas été du goût de tout le monde à l'époque…


Оскорбление нравственности Том Шарп


Once again the setting is Piemburgem, the deceptively peaceful-looking capital of Zululand, where Kommandant van Heerden, Konstabel Els and Luitenant Vekramp continue to terrorise true Englishman and even truer Zulus in their relentless search for a perfect South Africa. While that great Anglophile, Kommandant van Heerden, gropes his way towards attaining true 'Englishness' in the company of the eccentric Dornford Yates Club, Luitenant Verkramp, whose hatred of all things English is surpassed only by his fear of sex, sets in motion an experiment in mass chastity, with the help of the redoubtable lady psychiatrist Dr von Blimenstein, which has remarkable and quite unforeseen results. The Kommandant, hunting the fox in the Aardvark mountains, succumbs to the bizarre charms of Mrs Heathcote-Kilkoon, as Luitenant Verkramp's essays in counter-espionage backfire in the bird sanctuary. Once more, Konstabel Els, homicidal to the last, saves the day — or what's left of it — in one of the most…


Closing Time Joseph Heller


In Joseph Heller's two best novels, Catch 22 and Something Happened, the narrative circles obsessively around a repressed memory that it is the stories' business finally to confront. We feel the tremors of its eventual eruption in each book even as the narrator frantically distracts us with slapstick improvisation. In his newest novel, Closing Time, Heller brings back the (anti-) hero of Catch 22, John Yossarian, and once again something horrific is building beneath his life and those of his generation and their century as they all draw to a close. But this time it is not a brute fact lodged in memory, the something that draws its power simply from having happened. It is instead something that is going to happen-we're going to die-and it draws its power from-well-how we feel about that. The problem is that we may not all feel the same way about our approaching death, as we cannot fail to do about Howie Snowden bleeding to death on the floor of the bomber in Catch 22. We cannot really imagine…


Cocaine Nights J.G. Ballard


There’s something wrong with Estrella Del Mar, the lazy, sun-drenched retirement haven on Spain’s Costa Del Sol. Lately this sleepy hamlet, home to hordes of well-heeled, well-fattened British and French expatriates, has come alive with activity and culture; the previously passive, isolated residents have begun staging boat races, tennis competitions, revivals of Harold Pinter plays, and lavish parties. At night the once vacant streets are now teeming with activity, bars and cafes packed with revelers, the sidewalks crowded with people en route from one event to the next. Outward appearances suggest the wholesale adoption of a new ethos of high-spirited, well-controlled collective exuberance. But there’s the matter of the fire: The house and household of an aged, wealthy industrialist has gone up in flames, claiming five lives, while virtually the entire town stood and watched. There’s the matter of the petty crime, the burglaries, muggings, and auto thefts which have begun to…
