Ce matin j ai d cid d arr ter de manger
" Je tiens depuis deux mois. J'ai déjà perdu presque dix kilos. Il faut que tout ce que j'avale dans la journée tienne dans un bol. On peut y mettre une tranche de jambon, trois haricots verts et un yaourt. Si le contenu dépasse le bol, c'est une catastrophe. Et je ne sais plus où j'en suis. " Justine raconte comment, à 14 ans, elle a commencé un régime " pour être belle " et a été prise dans une spirale infernale qui lui a fait perdre 36 kilos. Hospitalisée, à bout de forces, Justine est nourrie à l'aide d'une sonde pendant des mois, mais elle rechute, plusieurs fois. La boulimie prend le relais de l'anorexie. Epuisée physiquement et fragilisée psychologiquement, elle doit interrompre sa scolarité. Aujourd'hui, à 17 ans, Justine a retrouvé l'espoir et l'équilibre. Elle témoigne pour que cesse l'horrible dictature de la minceur et lance un cri d'alarme contre ceux qui érigent l'anorexie en valeur morale. C'est une jeune fille courageuse qui combat désormais pour la vie des autres adolescents.
To coincide with the anniversary of Sobibor uprising which led to its closure by the Nazis.
The Life of Hunger
In a wistful, tough, funny, clever, and characteristically odd memoir-cum-novel, Amelie Nothomb casts herself as hunger: hunger for experience, hunger for life, hunger for sweetness and, in what is the book's nucleus, hunger for hunger (the period during which she was afflicted by acute anorexia). The daughter of a Belgian diplomat, Amelie had an itinerant childhood, ranging from Tokyo to Peking and Paris to New York by way of Bangladesh. Recounting these formative journeys right up to her return to Japan in 1989, and the Kobe earthquake, The Life of Hunger is an extraordinary examination of the self, and perhaps Amelie's most mature and moving work to date.
Front Cover Iconography and Algerian Women s Writing
The front covers of books written by Algerian women serve as the primary source of investigation in Front Cover Iconography and Algerian Women Writers. These covers have implications that extend beyond selling the book. What we see on one side of the page—or in this case, the cover, (recto) controls what we read on the reverse—in this case, the text itself (verso). Using theories of the paratext, including those of Gérard Genette and Jonathan Gray, this book determines how four dominant iconographies used on the covers of Algerian women’s writing – Orientalist art, the veil, the desert, and the author portrait – work with and against the texts they represent. These images have an impact on the initial reception of the book, but beyond that, book covers determine how both the informed and uninformed reader categorize and interpret francophone Algerian women’s writing in France and beyond. As the covers help to sell the works, they also produce messages, represented via their iconographies that embed themselves into the texts. A sometimes explicit, and at the very least, implicit dialog between the visual paratextual representation and the written textual one is created: a dialog that extends beyond the life of the physical book to a sort of canonical paradigm for reading these authors’ works. Thus, even if the cover image appears ephemeral, it never truly disappears. Its powerful control over critical reception and, ultimately, interpretation of francophone Algerian women’s writing remains.

An exceptionally powerful novel exploring the themes of betrayal, guilt and memory against the background of the Holocaust. An international bestseller. For 15-year-old Michael Berg, a chance meeting with an older woman leads to far more than he ever imagined. The woman in question is Hanna, and before long they embark on a passionate, clandestine love affair which leaves Michael both euphoric and confused. For Hanna is not all she seems. Years later, as a law student observing a trial in Germany, Michael is shocked to realize that the person in the dock is Hanna. The woman he had loved is a criminal. Much about her behaviour during the trial does not make sense. But then suddenly, and terribly, it does - Hanna is not only obliged to answer for a horrible crime, she is also desperately concealing an even deeper secret. 'A tender, horrifying novel that shows blazingly well how the Holocaust should be dealt with in fiction' INDEPENDENT 'For generations to come, people will be reading and marvelling over Bernhard Schlink's The Reader' EVENING STANDARD 'Leaps national boundaries and speaks straight to the heart' NEW YORK TIMES
