Dick Talon touche le fond
Après Dick Talon heureux comme un con, sorti aux Éditions du square en 1978 et Dick Talon Nazillon sortie en 2007 aux éditions Rotative (Charlie Hebdo), le héros de Willem pose ses valises chez Les Requins Marteaux. Et il n'arrive pas seul ! Dick Talon touche le fond présente une sélection d'histoires courtes parues dans Charlie Hebdo depuis 2011. Au long de la vingtaine de BD qui composent ce recueil, nous découvrirons de nombreux personnages haut en couleurs. Paradoxalement, si ces histoires ont si bien accompagné l'actualité, c'est qu'elles parviennent à dépasser l'immédiateté du fait-divers, la simple information, pour devenir de véritables fables intemporelles. Willem tord, déconstruit, et recompose révélant au passage toute la mystique de son matériel. Depuis Hara-Kiri, jusqu'à Libération et Charlie Hebdo, voilà bientôt 50 ans que l'œil de Willem nous accompagne. Plus qu'un simple miroir déformant, ses histoires sont le cauchemar de notre société. Un purgatoire aux frontières de la petite actualité et de la grande histoire, peuplée de nombreux fantômes où les sentiments refoulés s'y mélangent aux souvenirs traumatiques. À la fois majestueuse et triviale, l'œuvre de Willem tient autant de l'alchimie que de la psychanalyse. Sa radicalité résiste à tout: ni les hommages, ni les attentats n'auront su l'entamer. En voici une nouvelle preuve.

2014 National Book Award Finalist A New York Times Bestseller An audacious, darkly glittering novel set in the eerie days of civilization’s collapse, Station Eleven tells the spellbinding story of a Hollywood star, his would-be savior, and a nomadic group of actors roaming the scattered outposts of the Great Lakes region, risking everything for art and humanity. One snowy night Arthur Leander, a famous actor, has a heart attack onstage during a production of King Lear. Jeevan Chaudhary, a paparazzo-turned-EMT, is in the audience and leaps to his aid. A child actress named Kirsten Raymonde watches in horror as Jeevan performs CPR, pumping Arthur’s chest as the curtain drops, but Arthur is dead. That same night, as Jeevan walks home from the theater, a terrible flu begins to spread. Hospitals are flooded and Jeevan and his brother barricade themselves inside an apartment, watching out the window as cars clog the highways, gunshots ring out, and life disintegrates around them. Fifteen years later, Kirsten is an actress with the Traveling Symphony. Together, this small troupe moves between the settlements of an altered world, performing Shakespeare and music for scattered communities of survivors. Written on their caravan, and tattooed on Kirsten’s arm is a line from Star Trek: “Because survival is insufficient.” But when they arrive in St. Deborah by the Water, they encounter a violent prophet who digs graves for anyone who dares to leave. Spanning decades, moving back and forth in time, and vividly depicting life before and after the pandemic, this suspenseful, elegiac novel is rife with beauty. As Arthur falls in and out of love, as Jeevan watches the newscasters say their final good-byes, and as Kirsten finds herself caught in the crosshairs of the prophet, we see the strange twists of fate that connect them all. A novel of art, memory, and ambition, Station Eleven tells a story about the relationships that sustain us, the ephemeral nature of fame, and the beauty of the world as we know it.

The Devil That Never Dies
A groundbreaking--and terrifying--examination of the widespread resurgence of antisemitism in the 21st century, by the prize-winning and #1 internationally bestselling author of Hitler's Willing Executioners. Antisemitism never went away, but since the turn of the century it has multiplied beyond what anyone would have predicted. It is openly spread by intellectuals, politicians and religious leaders in Europe, Asia, the Arab world, America and Africa and supported by hundreds of millions more. Indeed, today antisemitism is stronger than any time since the Holocaust. In THE DEVIL THAT NEVER DIES, Daniel Jonah Goldhagen reveals the unprecedented, global form of this age-old hatred; its strategic use by states; its powerful appeal to individuals and groups; and how technology has fueled the flames that had been smoldering prior to the millennium. A remarkable work of intellectual brilliance, moral stature, and urgent alarm, THE DEVIL THAT NEVER DIES is destined to be one of the most provocative and talked-about books of the year.
The Francis Blake Affair
Scandal breaks in the London press: there is a mole in the Intelligence Service and it appears without a doubt, on a photo taken by MI5 agents, that the mole wears the face of Francis Blake. Mortimer is determined to believe that his friends has been forced to act against his will, but the initial investigation sweeps this hypothesis away. With MI5 agents planning to try Blake for high treason, and to kill him if needs be, Mortimer decides to find his friend before they do.
Painting After Postmodernism
* A unique dialogue between Belgian and American painting by acclaimed American art critic, Barbara Rose* Contains works from Ed Moses, Larry Poons, Jan Vanriet, & Marc Maet* Accompanies an exhibition at 'The Underground' in BrusselsPainting after Postmodernism: Belgium - USA investigates why so many believed Marcel Duchamp when he made his infamous statement of 1918: that painting was dead. After all, as Barbara Rose eloquently argues , Duchamp was wrong. In the decades before and after World War II, Picasso, Matisse, Mir� and the New York School continued to make monumental mural scale paintings on the level of the greatest art of the past. However, in the politically radical 1960s and 1970s it once again became fashionable to toll the death knell for painting, perceived as the product of bourgeois culture. In its place galleries and museums defined the avant-garde as conceptual art, video, mixed media and installations, all of which denied painting its position of pre-eminence. Painting was reduced to just another broken-down offshoot of postmodernism. Highly influential art critic Barbara Rose investigates how contemporary artists rediscovered the art of painting, juxtaposing works from Belgian and American artists to create a cross-cultural dialogue.

The Hartlepool Monkey
1814, off the Durham coast, near the village of Hartlepool, a war-ship in the Napoleonic fleet founders during a storm and sinks. At day-break, fishermen discover a survivor: a monkey dressed in full military regalia, the mascot. The good people of Hartlepool despise all Frenchmen, though they have never seen one in the flesh. Nor have they ever see a monkey. But this brutish, bestial castaway tallies with the impression they have of the enemy, and the ape is court-martialled. Inspired by this famous legend, this is a tragi-comic fable of war and jingoism.
