À Noël dernier, j’ai feuilleté le catalogue Jouets d’un grand magasin. Sur fond bleu : des autos, des motos et des bateaux. Sur fond rose : des poupées qui marchent et parlent, dix Barbie princesse et une Barbie fait le ménage. Materner c’est très bien, faire le ménage c’est nécessaire, et s’habiller comme une princesse peut être agréable, mais ce ne sont pas les seules façons, pour une fille, de gagner sa vie. Il y a beaucoup d’autres métiers, bien mieux payés. Ce « Guide des métiers » vous fera découvrir plus de cinquante professions, depuis Aventurière jusqu’à Physicienne en passant par Agent secret, Chef d’orchestre, Femme d’affaires, Informaticienne ou Surfeuse. Chaque fiche-métier offre deux portraits : celui d’une pionnière et celui d’une femme d'aujourd'hui. Des indications pratiques comme « études conseillées », « salaire en début de carrière » ou « espérance de vie » accompagnent le texte. Décalé et enthousiasmant. À mettre entre toutes les mains.

Génie et alcoolique précoce, Musset livre l'essentiel de son oeuvre avant trente ans. Ensuite, il sombre. Son nom n’aurait probablement pas traversé deux siècles si, un beau jour de 1834, il n’avait décidé d'écrire une pièce de théâtre intitulée Lorenzaccio. Faites le test. Demandez autour de vous : « Musset ? » On ne vous répondra pas : « Qui ? » Ni même : « Quel ennui ! », mais : « Lorenzaccio ». Pourquoi un tel succès ? Parce que cette pièce écrite avec du sperme est d'un érotisme torride. Elle ne parle quasiment que de sexe et, quand elle ne parle pas de sexe, elle parle de sang, de violence, de fantômes au clair de lune et de la douceur de vivre perdue. Catherine Dufour nous emmène sur les traces moites de Lorenzo de Médicis tel que l’a rêvé Musset. Catherine Dufour est romancière, deux fois lauréate du Grand Prix de l’Imaginaire. Dernièrement elle a publié aux éditions Fayard le Guide des métiers pour les petites filles qui ne veulent pas finir princesses et L’Histoire de France pour ceux qui n’aiment pas ça.

An exemplary travelogue of danger and achievement by the Frenchwoman Madame Alexandra David–Neel of her 1923 expedition to Tibet, the fifth in her series of Asian travels, and her personal recounting of her journey to Lhasa, Tibet's forbidden city. In order to penetrate Tibet and reach Lhasa, she used her fluency of Tibetan dialects and culture, disguised herself as a beggar with yak hair extensions and inked skin and tackled some of the roughest terrain and climate in the World. With the help of her young companion, Yongden, she willingly suffered the primitive travel conditions, frequent outbreaks of disease, the ever–present danger of border control and the military to reach her goal. The determination and sheer physical fortitude it took for this woman, delicately reared in Paris and Brussels, is inspiration for men and women alike. David–Neel is famous for being the first Western woman to have been received by any Dalai Lama and as a passionate scholar and explorer of Asia, hers is one of the most remarkable of all travellersߴales.

Renee is the concierge of a grand Parisian apartment building, home to members of the great and the good. Over the years she has maintained her carefully constructed persona as someone reliable but totally uncultivated, in keeping, she feels, with society's expectations of what a concierge should be. But beneath this facade lies the real Renee: passionate about culture and the arts, and more knowledgeable in many ways than her employers with their outwardly successful but emotionally void lives. Down in her lodge, apart from weekly visits by her one friend Manuela, Renee lives resigned to her lonely lot with only her cat for company. Meanwhile, several floors up, twelve-year-old Paloma Josse is determined to avoid the pampered and vacuous future laid out for her, and decides to end her life on her thirteenth birthday. But unknown to them both, the sudden death of one of their privileged neighbours will dramatically alter their lives forever. By turn moving and hilarious, this unusual novel became the top-selling book in France in 2007 with sales of over 900,000 copies to-date.
