  • Traduit de l'anglais (États-Unis) par Carine Chichereau. " Le mariage est un tissu de mensonges. Gentils, pour la plupart. D'omissions. Si tu devais exprimer ce que tu penses au quotidien de ton conjoint, tu réduirais tout en miettes. Elle n'a jamais menti. Elle s'est contentée de ne pas en parler. " Ils se rencontrent à l'université. Ils se marient très vite. Nous sommes en 1991. À vingt-deux ans, Lotto et Mathilde sont beaux, séduisants, follement amoureux, et semblent promis à un avenir radieux. Dix ans plus tard, Lotto est devenu un dramaturge au succès planétaire, et Mathilde, dans l'ombre, l'a toujours soutenu. Le couple qu'ils forment est l'image-type d'un partenariat réussi. Mais les histoires d'amour parfaites cachent souvent des secrets qu'il vaudrait mieux taire. Au terme de ce roman, la véritable raison d'être de ce couple sans accrocs réserve bien des surprises.

Tant de secrets de familles à révéler, derrière les tableaux des aïeux qui s'alignent dans l'entrée de la maison.

  • Florida

    Lauren Groff

    Florida is a magnificent collection, executed with tremendous depth and precision, unsettling in the best possible way. Lauren Groff is a virtuoso.' Emily St John Mandel, author of Station Eleven In her vigorous and moving new book, Lauren Groff brings her electric storytelling and intelligence to a world in which storms, snakes and sinkholes lurk at the edge of everyday life, but the greater threats and mysteries are of a human, emotional and psychological nature. Among those navigating it all are a resourceful pair of abandoned sisters; a lonely boy, grown up; a restless, childless couple; a searching, homeless woman; and an unforgettable, recurring character a steely and conflicted wife and mother.

    The stories in this collection span characters, towns, decades, even centuries, but Florida - its landscape, climate, history, and state of mind - becomes its gravitational centre: an energy, a mood, as much as a place of residence. Groff transports the reader, then jolts us alert with a crackle of wit, a wave of sadness, a flash of cruelty, as she writes about loneliness, rage, family and the passage of time. With shocking accuracy and effect, she pinpoints the moments and decisions and connections behind human pleasure and pain, hope and despair, love and fury - the moments that make us alive. Startling, precise and affecting, Florida is a magnificent achievement.

  • FLORIDA - STORIES

    Lauren Groff

    New York Times bestseller Lauren Groff returns with an electric collection of stories as propulsive and consuming as her novel Fates and Furies . Lauren Groff is one of the most important authors writing today, and Florida -- her first new book since her "clear the ground triumph"* Fates and Furies -- is an electrifying, expanding read. Over a decade ago, Groff moved to her adopted home state of Florida. The stories in this collection span characters, towns, decades, even centuries, but Florida -- its landscape, climate, history, and state of mind -- becomes its gravitational center. Storms, snakes, and sinkholes lurk at the edge of everyday life, but the greater threats and mysteries are of a human, emotional, and psychological nature. In " The Midnight Zone ," a woman finds herself injured and isolated in a confined space with her children, danger literally prowling outside the door, and must confront what it is she is really afraid of. " Above and Below " follows a young homeless woman as she moves from one Florida beach town to another, finding increasingly precarious ways to survive. And " Yport " brilliantly explores the alternating fulfillment and anxiety of modern marriage and motherhood, all the more apparent when removed from routine American life. Groff's evocative storytelling and knife-sharp intelligence first transport the reader, then jolt us alert with a crackle of wit, a wave of sadness, a flash of cruelty, as she writes about loneliness, rage, family, and the passage of time. With shocking accuracy and effect, Groff pinpoints the moments and decisions and connections behind human pleasure and pain, hope and despair, love and fury -- the moments that make us alive. Vigorous, startling, precise, and moving, Florida is a magnificent achievement. (* Washington Post )

  • UNTITLED

    Lauren Groff

    A remarkable historical novel by the bestselling author of Fates and Furies Cast out of the royal court by Eleanor of Aquitaine, deemed too coarse and rough-hewn for marriage or courtly life, seventeen-year-old Marie de France is sent to England to be the new prioress of an impoverished abbey, its nuns on the brink of starvation and beset by disease. At first taken aback by the severity of her new life, Marie finds focus and love in collective life with her singular and mercurial sisters. In this crucible, Marie steadily supplants her desire for family, for her homeland, for the passions of her youth with something new to her: devotion to her sisters, and a conviction in her own divine visions. Marie, born the last in a long line of women warriors and crusaders, is determined to chart a bold new course for the women she now leads and protects. But in a world that is shifting and corroding in frightening ways, one that can never reconcile itself with her existence, will the sheer force of Marie''s vision be bulwark enough? Equally alive to the sacred and the profane, Matrix gathers currents of violence, sensuality and religious ecstasy in a mesmerising portrait of consuming passion, aberrant faith and a woman that history moves both through and around.
