Elle est apparue un matin dans l'ascenseur. On a monté cent quinze étages en silence. Puis elle est entrée dans l'école, comme moi. Pendant la récréation, elle est restée dans la classe. Moi, penché au parapet de la terrasse de verre, je me répétais : "Ne tombe pas, ne tombe pas, ne tombe pas. " J'avais peur de tomber amoureux. A l'heure du déjeuner, elle est partie et n'a jamais remis les pieds au collège. Il fallait que je la retrouve.

In prose as magical and intricate as the tale it tells, Timothée de Fombelle delivers an unforgettable story of a first love that defines a lifetime. Joshua Pearl comes from a world that we no longer believe in — a world of fairy tale. He knows that his great love waits for him there, but he is stuck in an unfamiliar time and place — an old-world marshmallow shop in Paris on the eve of World War II. As his memories begin to fade, Joshua seeks out strange objects: tiny fragments of tales that have already been told, trinkets that might possibly help him prove his own story before his love is lost forever. Sarah Ardizzone and Sam Gordon translate the original French into a work both luminous and layered, enabling Timothée de Fombelle’s modern fairy tale to thrum with magic. Brimming with romance and history, mystery and adventure, this ode to the power of memory, storytelling, and love will ensnare any reader’s imagination, and every reader’s heart.

Les publics de la musique classique font l’objet d’un grand nombre de représentations sociales, depuis les caricatures de Daumier à l’Opéra de Paris jusqu’aux mises en scène des nouveaux publics d’El Sistema. Si le constat de leur déclin et de la nécessité de promouvoir leur renouvellement à l’ère numérique semble désormais largement partagé, comme le démontrent, enquêtes à l’appui, les diverses contributions réunies dans cet ouvrage, c’est aussi à une réflexion sur le sens et la portée du concert dans l’espace public qu’invitent les auteurs réunis ici. Le présent ouvrage dresse ainsi un bilan à la fois historique, sociologique et politique des transformations de la vie musicale et du concert de musique classique du XIXe siècle à nos jours. En rassemblant plus d’une vingtaine de spécialistes, français et étrangers, historiens, musicologues, sociologues, économistes, politistes, professionnels de la culture et de la musique, cet ouvrage invite non seulement à réfléchir aux conditions historiques qui ont façonné le concert tel que nous le connaissons aujourd’hui et engendré les difficultés à renouveler ses publics, mais aussi à envisager l’avenir de la musique classique et de ses concerts à l’ère du multimédia et des cultures numériques.

Юноша и девушка в лифте, который несется ввысь, на 115-й этаж башни, в школу. Юноше хватает этих коротких минут, чтобы влюбиться. Оказывается, Селеста – новенькая и будет учиться в его классе! Селеста ворвалась в его жизнь, в его мысли молниеносно – чтобы так же молниеносно исчезнуть. В школе он ее больше не видел.В мире будущего люди живут, учатся, работают, лечатся в огромных стеклянных башнях: за их пределами никому и ничему нет места, даже природе. Автомобили стоят вертикально в отдельных башнях-парковках; взрослым приходится работать на износ, чтобы прокормить себя и детей; о том, что грозит планете от беспрерывной эксплуатации, бизнес-корпорации и власти предпочитают молчать.У 14-летнего юноши, рассказывающего историю своей любви, не было в жизни ничего, кроме лучшего друга Брисса и карты мира, которую он рисовал прямо на полу и стенах квартиры. Но теперь есть ещё одно: идея найти Селесту, потому что её таинственное исчезновение не может быть случайным. Ради этих поисков герой готов на всё – даже подняться на верхушку 330-й башни. Той, что окутана самым густым дымом.Фантастическая повесть Тимоте де Фомбеля «Девочка из башни 330» читается как остросюжетный роман и трогает как проникновенное стихотворение.

Timothée de Fombelle and Isabelle Arsenault capture the heart-wrenching cost of war for one small girl in a delicately drawn, expertly told tale. While her father is at war, five-year-old Rosalie is a captain on her own secret mission. She wears the disguise of a little girl and tracks her progress in a secret notebook. Some evenings, Rosalie's mother reads aloud Father's letters from the front lines, so that Rosalie knows he is thinking of her and looking forward to the end of the war and to finally coming home. But one day a letter comes that her mother doesn't read to her, and Rosalie knows her mission must soon come to an end. Author Timothée de Fombelle reveals the true consequence of war through the experiences of small, determined Rosalie, while acclaimed artist Isabelle Arsenault illustrates Rosalie's story in muted grays marked with soft spots of color -- the orange flame of Rosalie's hair, the pale pink of a scarf, the deep blue ink of her father's letters. All the more captivating for the simplicity with which it is drawn and told, this quiet tale will stay with the reader long after its last page is turned.

FROM THE ACCLAIMED AUTHOR OF THE LAST PEARL AND DANCING AT THE VICTORY CAFE, this is a beautiful novel about family secrets, betrayals and redemption. The secrets in a woman's heart are deeper than the ocean… For May Smith, travelling with her husband and baby girl Ellen, stepping foot on the Titanic marks the start of an incredible journey, one which is destined to take her from the back streets of Bolton to the land of opportunity: the United States. But when the 'unsinkable' Titanic hits an iceberg one cold dark night, May's dreams are instantly shattered. Jumping from the sinking ship at the last minute, May loses sight of Joe and Ellen. Distraught, she is pulled into a lifeboat. Minutes later, the real-life Captain Smith swims to the lifeboat and hands May a baby swaddled in blankets. This rescue is witnessed by fellow survivor, Celeste Parkes, married to an American industrialist who is on her way back to Ohio after her mother's funeral. In horror, they both watch the death throes of the mighty ship; May traumatised, knowing her husband has drowned, Celeste wishing her bully of a husband had been on board and out of her life. As the dawn comes up, and the two women are rescued by the Carpathia, a friendship is formed, one which is destined to transcend the Atlantic and social differences between them and last a lifetime. Then May makes a shocking discovery and a split-second decision which will change the lives of many.

"Readers opening the pages of Nostalgia should brace themselves for a verbal tidal wave of the imagination that will wash away previous ideas of what a novel is or ought to be. What unifies the book is neither characters nor narrative continuity but a thematic, even mesmeric harmony. In the world of Nostalgia, children's games, the music of the spheres, humankind's primordial myth-making, the origins of the universe - all find their unlikely common ground in the dilapidated tenement blocks of an apocalyptic Bucharest during the years of the communist dictatorship."--BOOK JACKET.
