• Les lionnes

    Lucy Ellmann

    Une femme, mère au foyer, vit son quotidien dans sa cuisine. L'âge est venu, elle a surmonté un cancer, et dans sa tête elle rumine le monde, ses folies, les fusillades dans les écoles, la crise économique et écologique, la pauvreté, les tâches domestiques, le patriarcat, sa mère décédée. Ça nous parle, au plus profond, de tout, partout.

    Une apnée littéraire qui réussit à toucher l'universel par le biais du plus intime. Un magnifique portrait de femme, de toutes les femmes.

  • Anglais Mimi

    Lucy Ellmann

    By the author of Ducks, Newburyport , shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2019 and the Goldsmiths Prize It's Christmas Eve in Manhattan. Harrison Hanafan, noted plastic surgeon, falls on his ass. So far, so good. 'Ya can't sit there all day, buddy, looking up people's skirts!' chides a weird gal in a coat like a duvet - Mimi! She kindly conjures for him the miracle of a taxi. Recuperating in his apartment with Schubert, Bette Davis, and a foundling cat, Harrison adds items to his life's work, a List of Melancholy Things (Walmart, puppetry, Velcro, whale eyes, shrimp-eating contests...). But when he receives a dreaded invitation to address his old school, Mimi reappears, with all her curves and chaos. She and Harrison fall emphatically in love. And, as their love-making reaches a whole new kind of climax, the sweet smell of revolution is in the air.
