Sous la figure tutélaire de François Mitterrand, dit « Tonton », toute une génération s’est épanouie sur les scènes contrastées des années 1980 à 2011 : cette génération, c’est celle des rejetons de 1968, héritiers de la fin des illusions, menacés par le chômage de masse dont ils ont essuyé les plâtres, subissant déjà la lutte des places dans le monde du travail, en attendant la fin de la partie sexuelle avec le sida. En 1981, l’histoire les a réinventés à toute allure : avènement de la gauche en France, abolition de la peine de mort et libéralisation des ondes, désindustrialisation massive, big bang audiovisuel, marche civique des Beurs et mouvements humanitaires, néolibéralisme, Pologne et Chute du mur, Guerre en ex-Yougoslavie, Irak et terrorismes, nouvelles peurs contemporaines, nouvelles utopies, désintégration des idéologies...Ils avaient entre 16 et 25 ans le 10 mai 1981, et plus rien n’a été pareil. Cette enquête, menée comme un roman balzacien, suit les trajectoires d’une cinquantaine de « héros » de ce moment-clef jusqu’en 2011, date à laquelle ils auront 50 ans. Comme dans un roman, ils se croisent, se séparent, se retrouvent à la faveur des événements et des ruptures qui ont marqué ce quart de siècle. Le « casting » est composé de gens connus ou non, représentatifs de cette génération charnière : politiques (Montebourg, Peillon, Valls, Boutih), syndicalistes, militants associatifs, humanitaires, artistes (Porte, Séra, Guetta, Chao), écrivains, intellectuels (Onfray), médiatiques (Bellanger, Naulleau, Patino, Olivennes) etc.Ils auront 50 ans le 10 mai 2011. L’avenir dira s’ils sont les oubliés de l’histoire ou si leur tour est venu de dessiner un destin collectif.

En s'appuyant sur un corpus de textes contemporains, l'auteur propose une monographie de deux signes doubles de ponctuation: la parenthese et le tiret double. Apres avoir presente l'histoire de ces signes et des theories linguistiques sur la ponctuation, elle propose des analyses syntaxiques. La nature des segments langagiers qui se trouvent decroches (c'est-a-dire mis entre parentheses ou entre tirets), leur position dans la phrase sont abordes ainsi que les jeux sur la linearite autorises par ces signes. La dimension semantique intervient egalement pour montrer que la parenthese cree un denivele enonciatif qui constitue la parenthese et le tiret double en aire de reformulation (vulgarisation scientifique), et de dialogisme (discours rapporte). C'est surtout a la description du role metaenonciatif de ces deux signes que l'auteur s'attache: parentheses et tiret double s'offrent souvent comme un ecrin graphique dans lequel le sujet ecrivant fait la rencontre - parfois si delicate - du sens qu'il entend donner a ses mots.

A New York Times Notable Book A New York Times bestseller, “DeLillo’s haunting new novel, Zero K—his most persuasive since his astonishing 1997 masterpiece, Underworld” (The New York Times), is a meditation on death and an embrace of life. Jeffrey Lockhart’s father, Ross, is a billionaire in his sixties, with a younger wife, Artis Martineau, whose health is failing. Ross is the primary investor in a remote and secret compound where death is exquisitely controlled and bodies are preserved until a future time when biomedical advances and new technologies can return them to a life of transcendent promise. Jeff joins Ross and Artis at the compound to say “an uncertain farewell” to her as she surrenders her body. “We are born without choosing to be. Should we have to die in the same manner? Isn’t it a human glory to refuse to accept a certain fate?” These are the questions that haunt the novel and its memorable characters, and it is Ross Lockhart, most particularly, who feels a deep need to enter another dimension and awake to a new world. For his son, this is indefensible. Jeff, the book’s narrator, is committed to living, to experiencing “the mingled astonishments of our time, here, on earth.” Don DeLillo’s “daring…provocative…exquisite” (The Washington Post) new novel weighs the darkness of the world—terrorism, floods, fires, famine, plague—against the beauty and humanity of everyday life; love, awe, “the intimate touch of earth and sun.” “One of the most mysterious, emotionally moving, and rewarding books of DeLillo’s long career” (The New York Times Book Review), Zero K is a glorious, soulful novel from one of the great writers of our time.

The stunning sequel to the award-winning novel One Thousand White Women. 9 March 1876 My name is Meggie Kelly and I take up this pencil with my twin sister, Susie. We have nothing left, less than nothing. The village of our People has been destroyed, all our possessions burned, our friends butchered by the soldiers, our baby daughters gone, frozen to death on an ungodly trek across these rocky mountains. Empty of human feeling, half-dead ourselves, all that remains of us intact are hearts turned to stone. We curse the U.S. government, we curse the Army, we curse the savagery of mankind, white and Indian alike. We curse God in his heaven. Do not underestimate the power of a mother’s vengeance... So begins the Journal of Margaret Kelly, a woman who participated in the U.S. government's "Brides for Indians" program in 1873, a program whose conceit was that the way to peace between the United States and the Cheyenne Nation was for One Thousand White Woman to be given as brides in exchange for three hundred horses. These "brides" were mostly fallen women; women in prison, prostitutes, the occasional adventurer, or those incarcerated in asylums. No one expected this program to work. And the brides themselves thought of it simply as a chance at freedom. But many of them fell in love with their Cheyenne spouses and had children with them...and became Cheyenne themselves. The Vengeance of Mothers explores what happens to the bonds between wives and husbands, children and mothers, when society sees them as "unspeakable." What does it mean to be white, to be Cheyenne, and how far will these women go to avenge the ones they love? With vivid detail and keen emotional depth, Jim Fergus brings to light a time and place in American history and fills it with unforgettable characters who live and breathe with a passion we can relate to even today.

In 1978 Christiane F. testified against a man who had traded heroin for sex with teenage girls at Berlin’s notorious Zoo Station. In the course of that trial, Christiane F. became connected with two journalists, and over time they helped to turn her story—which begins with a dysfunctional but otherwise fairly normal childhood—into an acclaimed bestseller. Christiane F.’s rapid descent into heroin abuse and prostitution is shocking, but the boredom, the longing for acceptance, the thrilling risks, and even the musical obsessions that fill out the rest of Christiane’s existence will be familiar to every reader. Christiane F.’s Berlin is a strange and often terrifying place, but it’s also a place that remains closer than we might think….
