J adore la mode mais c est tout ce que je d teste
Voici les saisons de couture de Loïc Prigent. Depuis 2011, celui qui est le plus influent documentariste de la mode tient un compte twitter (@LoicPrigent) qui fait grincer des dents tout le milieu de la mode et rire tous les autres (et parfois le milieu lui-même). Laissant ses oreilles traîner dans les défilés et les studios, il y recueille les bons mots, les rosseries, les énormités, les béatitudes et les coups de griffe des participants de ce petit cercle qui gouverne le goût du monde entier. Mannequins ? Attachés de presse ? Créateurs ? Qui parle ? Ecoutez-les, orchestrés par Loïc Prigent, porte-voix de cette nouvelle comédie humaine. Il y invente un nouveau genre littéraire : le pépiement. « Ne pleure pas. Pense à ton maquillage. » « - C'était bien ton dîner? - J'ai dit que des trucs que j'avais déjà dits et écouté que des conversations que j'avais déjà entendues. » « - Quel jour on est ? - Mais comment veux tu que je le sache ? » « J'ai tellement faim, je pourrais manger. » A coup sûr, le livre le plus drôle des années 10. Et, qui sait, le plus poétique ? Le livre est le choix des meilleures phrases de ces cinq années, auxquelles Loïc Prigent a ajouté un grand nombre d’inédits.

Bonjour Tristesse and A Certain Smile
Bonjour Tristesse is Françoise Sagan's stylish, shimmering and amoral tale of adolescence and betrayal on the French Riviera, published when its author was just eighteen years old. It tells the story of Cécile, who leads a carefree life with her widowed father and his young mistresses until, one hot summer on the Riviera, he decides to remarry - with devastating consequences. In A Certain Smile, which is also included in this volume, Dominique, a young woman bored with her lover, begins an encounter with an older man that unfolds in unexpected and troubling ways. Both novellas have been freshly translated by Heather Lloyd and include an introduction by Rachel Cusk. Françoise Sagan was born in France in 1935. Bonjour tristesse (1954), published when she was just eighteen, became a succès de scandale and even earned its author a papal denunciation. Sagan went on to write many other novels, plays and screenplays, and died in 2004. Heather Lloyd was previously Senior Lecturer in French at the University of Glasgow, and has published work on both Bonjour tristesse and Françoise Sagan. Rachel Cusk is the author of Saving Agnes (1993), which won the Whitbread First Novel Award; A Life's Work: On Becoming a Mother (2001); and Arlington Park (2006), shortlisted for the 2007 Orange Prize for Fiction. Her most recent book is Aftermath: On Marriage and Separation (2012). 'Funny, thoroughly immoral and thoroughly French' The Times

The Thirteenth Tribe
This book traces the history of the ancient Khazar Empire, a major but almost forgotten power in Eastern Europe, which in the Dark Ages became converted to Judaism. Khazaria was finally wiped out by the forces of Genghis Khan, but evidence indicates that the Khazars themselves migrated to Poland and formed the cradle of Western Jewry. To the general reader the Khazars, who flourished from the 7th to 11th century, may seem infinitely remote today. Yet they have a close and unexpected bearing on our world, which emerges as Koestler recounts the fascinating history of the ancient Khazar Empire. At about the time that Charlemagne was Emperor in the West. The Khazars' sway extended from the Black Sea to the Caspian, from the Caucasus to the Volga, and they were instrumental in stopping the Muslim onslaught against Byzantium, the eastern jaw of the gigantic pincer movement that in the West swept across northern Africa and into Spain. Thereafter the Khazars found themselves in a precarious position between the two major world powers: the Eastern Roman Empire in Byzantium and the triumphant followers of Mohammed. As Koestler points out, the Khazars were the Third World of their day. They chose a surprising method of resisting both the Western pressure to become Christian and the Eastern to adopt Islam. Rejecting both, they converted to Judaism. Mr Koestler speculates about the ultimate faith of the Khazars and their impact on the racial composition and social heritage of modern Jewry. He produces a large body of meticulously detailed research.
