Quand on n'embauche que des morts (ou des sorcières !) dans une région où le taux de chômage est à 25%, il faut bien s'attendre à quelques frictions.

Trois hommes dans un bateau - Jerome K. Jerome Preview:

Trois petits employés de bureau, amateurs de bistros, tire-au-flanc et hypocondriaques, entreprennent, pour prendre l’air, de remonter en canot la Tamise. Munis notamment d’un banjo et d’une poêle à frire, et accompagnés d’un fox-terrier nommé Montmorency, les voilà engagés dans le plus saugrenu des périples... Au récit hilarant de cette folle équipée s’entremêlent de savoureuses digressions sur les mérites comparés d’un voyage avec ou sans fromage dans ses valises, la vaste fumisterie des bulletins météorologiques, l’inconvénient de dormir sous le même toit qu’un couple d’amoureux, ou encore l’effet démoralisant de l’air fluvial...Trois Hommes dans un bateau, qui connut dès sa parution en 1889 un succès phénoménal, est un classique de l’humour anglais..

D’abord, c’était le chocolat. Puis le fromage, les frites, et aussi la glace. Le pain, ça n’avait pas été facile. Mais si elle pouvait maigrir encore un peu, elle aurait une chance d’être sélectionnée pour danser un solo. Oui, si elle faisait un peu plus d’efforts, si elle s’entraînait un peu plus dur... elle serait peut-être enfin à la hauteur. Anna Roux était danseuse au ballet de l’Opéra de Paris quand elle a décidé de suivre l’homme de sa vie aux États-Unis. Se retrouvant seule face à ses angoisses – l’imperfection, l’échec, la solitude –, elle est emportée dans la spirale de l’anorexie mentale, et finit par ne peser que 40 kg. Contrainte de se faire soigner, elle est admise au 17 Swann Street, une maison rose où des femmes aux visages fantomatiques s’efforcent de vaincre leurs troubles alimentaires. Des femmes comme Emm, la cheffe du groupe ; Julia, toujours affamée ; ou la discrète Valérie. Ensemble, elles combattent leurs démons et affrontent six repas quotidiens. Chaque bouchée est une épreuve. Chaque calorie un déferlement de culpabilité. Et chaque pas vers la guérison réclame une force et une bravoure peu communes, qu’Anna va devoir trouver auprès de ses amies du 17 Swann Street. Traduit de l'anglais par Carole Delporte.

The Patient - Jasper DeWitt Preview:

The Silent Patient by way of Stephen King: Parker, a young, overconfident psychiatrist new to his job at a mental asylum, miscalculates catastrophically when he undertakes curing a mysterious and profoundly dangerous patient. In a series of online posts, Parker H., a young psychiatrist, chronicles the harrowing account of his time working at a dreary mental hospital in New England. Through this internet message board, Parker hopes to communicate with the world his effort to cure one bewildering patient. We learn, as Parker did on his first day at the hospital, of the facility’s most difficult, profoundly dangerous case—a forty-year-old man who was originally admitted to the hospital at age six. This patient has no known diagnosis. His symptoms seem to evolve over time. Every person who has attempted to treat him has been driven to madness or suicide. Desperate and fearful, the hospital’s directors keep him strictly confined and allow minimal contact with staff for their own safety, convinced that releasing him would unleash catastrophe on the outside world. Parker, brilliant and overconfident, takes it upon himself to discover what ails this mystery patient and finally cure him. But from his first encounter with the mystery patient, things spiral out of control, and, facing a possibility beyond his wildest imaginings, Parker is forced to question everything he thought he knew. Fans of Sarah Pinborough’s Behind Her Eyes and Paul Tremblay’s The Cabin at the End of the World will be riveted by Jasper DeWitt’s astonishing debut..

“Perhaps I will write about my own life as a blind person,” Choon Guan said. “I’ll entitle it My Love is Blind. The word blind will embrace your name, Lin.” His big eyes widened and lit up, sparkling and full of tenderness. His lips moved in a soundless whisper: “My Love is Lin.” Tan Guan Heng lost his sight at the age of 28. In his first novel, he paints a nostalgic picture of Singapore on the brink of independence. With biting honesty and ironic humour, this novel brings to life the world of the blind and their sighted helpers. More than twenty years after its first publication in 1995, My Love is Blind has retained its enduring appeal as one of Singapore’s most extraordinary and memorable novels. Asiapac Books is pleased to launch a special edition of this groundbreaking novel, updated with an epilogue and a new foreword by Dr. Tommy Koh, and an afterword by literary critic, Gwee Li Sui..

(Re)Thinking Violence in Health Care Settings - Trudy Rudge Preview:

This comprehensive volume explores various forms of violence in health care settings. Using a broad range of critical approaches in the field of anthropology, cultural studies, gender studies, political philosophy and sociology, it examines violence following three definite yet interrelated streams: institutional and managerial violence against health care workers or patients; horizontal violence amongst health care providers and finally, patients' violence towards health care providers. Drawing together the latest research from Australia, Canada, the UK, and the US, (Re)Thinking Violence in Health Care Settings engages with the work of critical theorists such as Bourdieu, Butler, Foucault, Latour, and Zizek, amongst others, to address the issue of violence and theorise its workings in creative and controversial ways. As such, it will be of interest to sociologists and anthropologists with research expertise in health, medicine, violence and organisations, as well as to health care professionals..
