Sœur Blandine est de retour ! Alors qu'elle s'apprête à passer tranquillement les fêtes de Noël en famille dans un petit village du Charolais, la sémillante religieuse est une fois de plus appelée à la rescousse par la police locale. Le corps d'une femme, la soixantaine élégante, vient d'être repêché près d'une écluse et l'enquête piétine. Au vu des premières analyses, l'inconnue aurait été tuée ailleurs. Mais comment son corps a-t-il été acheminé jusqu'au canal ? Et surtout, que venait-elle faire dans la région ? Sœur Blandine, ex du Quai des Orfèvres, sillonne les routes au volant de sa 4L déglinguée et s'emploie à démêler les rivalités entre éleveurs, que la politique de Bruxelles et le spectre de la vache folle poussent au bord de la faillite. Outre son savoir-faire et un culot d'enfer, sœur Blandine a du flair, et des relations qui l'aideront à découvrir le pot aux roses au-delà des mers, très loin des bocages bourguignons.

Officer Anne Capestan and her squad of misfits must turn their attention to a more personal case--the murder of Capestan's ex-husband's father, a lifelong member of the Paris police force who had no shortage of enemies. After their successful solving of three cold cases and exposing corruption at the very highest levels of the Paris police force, Officer Anne Capestan's team of oddballs and no-hopers should be in a celebratory mood. However, now despised by their colleagues at 36, quai des Orfevres and worried for their future, morale has never been lower among the members of the Awkward Squad. Capestan is doing her best to motivate the team, but even she cannot maintain a cheerful facade when she has been assigned to investigate the murder of Officer Serge Rufus, the father of her ex-husband. Worse, it soon appears that his murder is linked to two other victims, both of whom were warned by the killer before they struck. Can Capestan marshal the forces to solve another hopeless mystery, or will her team's previous success be proven just a fluke?

Cinema has been long associated with France, dating back to 1895, when Louis and Auguste Lumi_re screened their works, the first public viewing of films anywhere. Early silent pioneers Georges MZli_s, Alice Guy BlachZ and others followed in the footsteps of the Lumi_re brothers and the tradition of important filmmaking continued throughout the 20th century and beyond. In Encyclopedia of French Film Directors, Philippe Rège identifies every French director who has made at least one feature film since 1895. From undisputed masters to obscure one-timers, nearly 3,000 directors are cited here, including at least 200 filmmakers not mentioned in similar books published in France. Each director's entry contains a brief biographical summary, including dates and places of birth and death; information on the individual's education and professional training; and other pertinent details, such as real names (when the filmmaker uses a pseudonym). The entries also provide complete filmographies, including credits for feature films, shorts, documentaries, and television work. Some of the most important names in the history of film can be found in this encyclopedia, from masters of the Golden Age_Jean Renoir and RenZ Clair_to French New Wave artists such as Fran_ois Truffaut and Jean-Luc Godard.

A moving, two-generational tale of two families from the acclaimed author of the New York Times Notable Book, Dreams of My Russian Summers. They are virtual brothers, Arkady and Alyosha, young pioneers in Stalin’s postwar world, marching to the clarion call of socialism, to the stirring beat of the drums. The future, they are assured, is bright and beautiful. But what, then, are those endless miles of barbed wire they encounter everywhere along their route? The fathers of the two young pioneers, Yakov Zinger and Pyotr Yevdokimov, are inseparable, having been through the grueling war against the Germans, with all its horror and senseless carnage. Yakov—or Yasha, as he was known—emerged physically intact but scarred forever “from the moment he had been lifted out of a mountain of frozen bodies at a camp in liberated Poland.” Pyotr, a skilled sniper who operated behind the German lines, lost both his legs, not at the hands of the Germans, but as a result of an artillery “mistake” by his own forces. Together, in these postwar, Cold War years, the two families try to piece together their shattered lives. “Brilliant . . . Exquisitely wrought.” —The New York Times

The chronicle of a family’s first year alone in Alaskan wilderness, Arctic Son is a poetic journey of discovery into what we value in life. In 1992 Jean Aspen and her husband, Tom, left Arizona and took their young son to live in Alaska's interior wilderness, building a cabin out of logs, hunting for food, and letting the vast, harsh beauty of the Arctic close in around them. While Jean had faced Alaska's wilderness before in a life‐altering experience she described in Arctic Daughter. This journey would be different. Dogged by sickness and hardships, cut off from the rest of the world, her family faced not only a test of endurance, but of its own well‐being and survival. From a daily struggle against the elements to an encounter with a grizzly bear at arm's length, from moments of breathtaking beauty and self‐realization to a harrowing, six‐hundred‐mile river passage back to civilization, Arctic Son chronicles fourteen remarkable months in the Alaskan wilderness. At once a portrait of courage and a heart‐pounding adventure story, Arctic Son portrays a family's extraordinary journey into America's last frontier.

Renowned French otolaryngologist Jean Abitbol, a lifetime student of the human voice, takes readers on an unforgettable odyssey spanning man's first use of voice through the acquisition of language to the use of voice as an expression of self. With great wit and charm, Dr. Abitbol's narrative encompasses everything from the psychological to the physiological, from explaining the workings of the voice to celebrating the human voice's highest achievements. He describes a fascinating history of the voice, its origins, its course since the Homo Sapiens' first sentences, its episodes of hoarseness, and its achievements, from the newborn cry to the coloratura soprano, from the impersonator to the ventriloquist. After exploring what is known about the voice, Dr. Abitbol tells us what our voices are capable of. He examines what he describes as "the magic of the voice": the voice as a fingerprint, a reflection of our personality in expressing our sex and sexuality. A great portion of this odyssey is devoted to singing and singers, both to the complexity of singing in general and to lyrical singing, the intricacies of which requires participation of the mechanical, emotional, and cerebral systems. The mysteries of the voice unfold as Dr. Abitbol guides readers through the latest physiological and pathological research using examples of historical figures', patients', and celebrities' voices to explain how the ways in which the body moves affect the way the voice sounds and how vocal quality is unique to each human being. A unique tour de force of the human vocal instrument, Odyssey of the Voice changes the way we think about our voices.
