Le terme pukhtu renvoie aux valeurs fondamentales du peuple pachtoune, l’honneur personnel – ghairat – et celui des siens, de sa tribu – izzat. Dire d’un homme qu’il n’a pas de pukhtu est une injure mortelle. Pukhtu est l’histoire d’un père qui, comme tous les pères, craint de se voir privé de ses enfants par la folie de son époque. Non, plutôt d’une jeune femme que le remords et la culpabilité abîment. Ou peut-être d’un fils, éloigné de sa famille par la force du destin. À moins qu’il ne s'agisse de celle d’un homme cherchant à redonner un sens à sa vie. Elle se passe en Asie centrale, en Afrique, en Amérique du Nord, en Europe et raconte des guerres ouvertes et sanglantes, des conflits plus secrets, contre la terreur, le trafic de drogue, et des combats intimes, avec soi-même, pour rester debout et survivre. C’est une histoire de maintenant, à l’ombre du monde et pourtant terriblement dans le monde. Elle met en scène des citoyens clandestins.

"Surprisingly tender." -- The New York Times Book Review. Set in Kabul under the rule of the Taliban, this extraordinary novel takes readers into the lives of two couples: Mohsen, who comes from a family of wealthy shopkeepers whom the Taliban has destroyed; Zunaira, his wife, exceedingly beautiful, who was once a brilliant teacher and is now no longer allowed to leave her home without an escort or covering her face. Intersecting their world is Atiq, a prison keeper, a man who has sincerely adopted the Taliban ideology and struggles to keep his faith, and his wife, Musarrat, who once rescued Atiq and is now dying of sickness and despair. Desperate, exhausted Mohsen wanders through Kabul when he is surrounded by a crowd about to stone an adulterous woman. Numbed by the hysterical atmosphere and drawn into their rage, he too throws stones at the face of the condemned woman buried up to her waist. With this gesture the lives of all four protagonists move toward their destinies. The Swallows of Kabul is a dazzling novel written with compassion and exquisite detail by one of the most lucid writers about the mentality of Islamic fundamentalists and the complexities of the Muslim world. Yasmina Khadra brings readers into the hot, dusty streets of Kabul and offers them an unflinching but compassionate insight into a society that violence and hypocrisy have brought to the edge of despair.

“For far too long, Afghan women have been faceless and voiceless. Until now. With The Patience Stone, Atiq Rahimi gives face and voice to one unforgettable woman–and, one could argue, offers her as a proxy for the grievances of millions…it is a rich read, part allegory, part a tale of retribution, part an exploration of honor, love, sex, marriage, war. It is without doubt an important and courageous book.” from the introduction by Khaled Hosseini, author of The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns In Persian folklore, Syngue Sabour is the name of a magical black stone, a patience stone, which absorbs the plight of those who confide in it. It is believed that the day it explodes, after having received too much hardship and pain, will be the day of the Apocalypse. But here, the Syngue Sabour is not a stone but rather a man lying brain-dead with a bullet lodged in his neck. His wife is with him, sitting by his side. But she resents him for having sacrificed her to the war, for never being able to resist the call to arms, for wanting to be a hero, and in the end, after all was said and done, for being incapacitated in a small skirmish. Yet she cares, and she speaks to him. She even talks to him more and more, opening up her deepest desires, pains, and secrets. While in the streets rival factions clash and soldiers are looting and killing around her, she speaks of her life, never knowing if her husband really hears. And it is an extraordinary confession, without restraint, about sex and love and her anger against a man who never understood her, who mistreated her, who never showed her any respect or kindness. Her admission releases the weight of oppression of marital, social, and religious norms, and she leads her story up to the great secret that is unthinkable in a country such as Afghanistan. Winner of the Prix Goncourt, The Patience Stone captures with great courage and spare, poetic, prose the reality of everyday life for an intelligent woman under the oppressive weight of the Taliban regime in Afghanistan.

Le roman policier a, tout au long du xxe siècle, élargi son lectorat, conquis ses lettres de noblesse et diversifié ses formes.Cet ouvrage commence par raconter la naissance et l’histoire du genre : d’où vient-il ? Comment a-t-il gagné son autonomie dans le domaine romanesque ? Puis il distingue le roman noir, le roman à énigmes et le roman à suspense : comment les identifier à partir de leurs structures, actions, personnages et procédés stylistiques ? Enfin il examine les relations du roman policier avec la littérature, au travers de son histoire, de ses auteurs, de ses thèmes et de ses procédés d’écriture.

An unforgettable novel about finding a lost piece of yourself in someone else. Khaled Hosseini, the #1 New York Times–bestselling author of The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, has written a new novel about how we love, how we take care of one another, and how the choices we make resonate through generations. In this tale revolving around not just parents and children but brothers and sisters, cousins and caretakers, Hosseini explores the many ways in which families nurture, wound, betray, honor, and sacrifice for one another; and how often we are surprised by the actions of those closest to us, at the times that matter most. Following its characters and the ramifications of their lives and choices and loves around the globe—from Kabul to Paris to San Francisco to the Greek island of Tinos—the story expands gradually outward, becoming more emotionally complex and powerful with each turning page.
