William Golding’s unforgettable classic of boyhood adventure and the savagery of humanity comes to Penguin Classics in a stunning Graphic Deluxe Edition with a new foreword by Lois Lowry As provocative today as when it was first published in 1954, Lord of the Flies continues to ignite passionate debate with its startling, brutal portrait of human nature. William Golding’s compelling story about a group of very ordinary boys marooned on a coral island has been labeled a parable, an allegory, a myth, a morality tale, a parody, a political treatise, and even a vision of the apocalypse. But above all, it has earned its place as one of the indisputable classics of the twentieth century for readers of any age. This Penguin Classics Graphic Deluxe Edition features an array of special features to supplement the novel, including a foreword by Lois Lowry, an introduction by Stephen King, an essay by E. M. Forster, an essay on teaching and reading the novel and suggestions for further exploration by scholar Jennifer Buehler, and an extended note by E. L. Epstein, the publisher of the first American paperback edition of Lord of the Flies. For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

ALLAH IS NOT OBLIGED TO BE FAIR ABOUT ALL THE THINGS HE DOES HERE ON EARTH.These are the words of the boy soldier Birahima in the final masterpiece by one of Africa’s most celebrated writers, Ahmadou Kourouma. When ten-year-old Birahima's mother dies, he leaves his native village in the Ivory Coast, accompanied by the sorcerer and cook Yacouba, to search for his aunt Mahan. Crossing the border into Liberia, they are seized by rebels and forced into military service. Birahima is given a Kalashnikov, minimal rations of food, a small supply of dope and a tiny wage. Fighting in a chaotic civil war alongside many other boys, Birahima sees death, torture, dismemberment and madness but somehow manages to retain his own sanity. Raw and unforgettable, despairing yet filled with laughter, Allah Is Not Obliged reveals the ways in which children's innocence and youth are compromised by war. From the Trade Paperback edition.

«Les enfants, c'est formidable. C'est une expérience unique que tout le monde devrait connaître.» Sauf qu'aujourd'hui, 1 Français sur 20 refuse d'enfanter. Quelles sont les motivations de cette «infertilité volontaire» ? Au fond, sait-on vraiment pourquoi on fait des enfants ? N'est-ce pas un obstacle à l'épanouissement personnel et professionnel ? Dans un monde surpeuplé et pollué, n'est-il pas égoïste de prendre trop de place en fondant une famille ? Les enfants ne coûtent-ils pas trop cher aux individus et à la société ? L'auteure a enquêté auprès de dizaines de femmes et d'hommes pour qui le «devoir de procréer» sonne creux. Parmi ces «non-parents», il y a des amoureux exclusifs, des artistes, des carriéristes, des religieux, des traumatisés de l'enfance, des éternels adolescents, des écologistes, des malthusiens convaincus, ainsi que des militantes féministes qui ont fait de leur refus d'enfanter un étendard, pour s'affirmer dans une société qui porte aux nues toutes les mères et les valeurs familiales. Journaliste depuis huit ans, Nathalie Six a collaboré entre autres à la revue Femmes, au Nouvel Obs, au Figaro et au Figaro magazine, à L'Orient littéraire, et à Livres Hebdo.

From one of the world's biggest selling authors comes another million-copy worldwide bestseller: A beautiful and tender fable seen through the eyes of a Jewish child living in Belgium under the Nazi occupation. It is 1942 and the Jews are being deported from Belgium. Separated from his parents, seven-year-old Joseph must go into hiding. He is taken in the dead of night to an orphanage, the Villa Jaune, where the benign and enigmatic Father Pons presides over a motley assortment of children. With the ever-present threat of the Gestapo growing closer, Joseph learns that the secret of survival is to conceal his Jewish heritage. Soon Joseph also discovers that Father Pons has a secret of his own: he is risking his life not only for the boys in his care, but for the Jewish faith itself. Sensitive, funny and deeply humane, Noah's Child is a simple fable that reveals the complexities of faith, bravery and the human condition.

Why do the French like talking about ‘the decline of France’? Why does broaching a subject like money end all discussion? Why do the French become so aroused debating the merits and qualities of their own language? Julie Barlow and Jean- Benoît Nadeau spent a decade travelling to and living in Paris. Yet one important lesson never seemed to sink in: how to converse comfortably with the French, even when you speak their language. Through encounters with school principals, city-hall civil servants, old friends and business acquaintances during their time living in France with their twin daughters, Julie and Jean-Benoît explain why, culturally and historically, talking to the French is not about communicating or being nice. It's about being interesting. After reading The Bonjour Effect, even readers with only a smattering of French will be able to hold their own the next time they are in a bistro on the Left Bank, on a wine tour in Bourdeaux or on a beach on the Côte d'Azur.

Dorfman portrays, through visceral scenes and powerful intellect, the personal and political maelstroms underlying his migrations from Buenos Aires, on the run from Pinochet's death squads, to safe houses in Paris and Amsterdam, and eventually to America, his childhood home. The toll on Dorfman's wife and two sons, the 'earthquake of language' that is bilingualism, and his eventual questioning of his allegiance to past and party - all these crucibles of a life in exile are revealed with wry and startling honesty. Feeding on Dreams is a passionate reminder that 'we are all exiles', that we are all 'threatened with annihilation if we do not find and celebrate the refuge of common humanity', as Dorfman did during his 'decades of loss and resurrection'.

Home—the need to get away from it; the need to find a way back to it; the need to make a new one—is the deep and abiding theme of Handke’s mature work, which is steeped in the poetry of places near and far, and is full of questions of love and family. Slow Homecoming is a musical work in three movements in which Handke, putting aside the nerve-wracked style of his early work for a new simplicity, meditates on exile, art, and the nature of the bonds between parent and child. The first part of the book, “The Long Way Around,” revisits America, as Valentin Sorger, a geologist who has been living and working in Alaska, travels cross-county to New York on his way back to Europe. Sorger has gone to the end of the world to get the message that he must go back where he came from. The second part, “The Lesson of Mont St.-Victoire,” describes another pilgrimage, to the mountain in Provence that Cézanne painted again and again, and shows Handke to be one of the outstanding nature writers of our time. Finally, “Child Story” is a tender, mesmerizing, scrupulously honest account of a new father—it could be Sorger, the author, or any man with a young child—and his struggle to raise and understand his daughter.

Humor and entertainment were vital to the war effort during World War I. While entertainment provided relief to soldiers in the trenches, it also built up support for the war effort on the home front. This book looks at transnational war culture by examining seemingly light-hearted discourses on the Great War.

Une famille orageuse descendue des Alpes , tonnerre assorti d'éclairs. Le plus illustre d'entre eux, Gabriel Honoré Riqueti, comte de Mirabeau, tête hurlée de la Révolution française à ses débuts. Né un 9 mars 1749 d'un père génial et cruel, Victor Riqueti, l'auteur célèbre de L'Ami des Hommes, et d'une mère, Marie-Geneviève de Vassan, une indolente du Limousin si endormie qu'elle sait à peine qu'elle existe, l'enfant crie son être lyrique par les bois et les forêts d'un pays où il voit le jour tout à fait par hasard, en Gâtinais, pays du miel et des étangs sourds. Elevé par sa nourrice à la forge du village, il y apprend très vite à tutoyer le feu, d'où cette éloquence de tribun du Tiers Etat qui brûlera l'âme. Aurait-il été guillotiné durant la Terreur ? Il meurt de toute façon avant qu'on l'achève, le 2 avril 1791, épuisé semble-t-il par une vie dissolue, de multiples prisons. La Nation en pleurs accompagne en terre son héros, mais deux ans plus tard, suite à une prétendue trahison, disperse férocement ses restes dans une tourbe anonyme. Au printemps 1796, un homme revient sur les premiers pas de Gabriel Honoré au Bignon, son village natal entre Nemours et Montargis, à la recherche de ce que fut Mirabeau enfant, puis jeune homme, se souciant d'apprendre comment son esprit se levait avec le soleil, se couchait avec les ombres. Les témoins existent encore des premières années. Mais comment démêler le vrai du faux ? Enquête cousue de fils blancs, de fils noirs ? On ignore tout de l'enquêteur, qui semble venir d'un autre temps. L'homme interroge, ajoutant son mystère à celui de ses propres questions.

Elle les hait. A dix-neuf ans, la haine est toujours immense et totale, absolue. Alors elle les hait tous. Les hommes de sa race, les peuples du Sud, Dieu, ses prophètes et leurs croyants imbéciles. Ceux-là même qui privent les femmes de leur première liberté, celle d’être belles et de le montrer. Des jours heureux de son enfance grenobloise, Leila a plongé dans l’enfer d’un certain Maroc. Un homme, un mari, un pays, des traditions. Contre son gré. Et bientôt, un enfant... Vibrant plaidoyer pour la condition des femmes, Le Foulard gris nous fait vivre le calvaire des victimes de l’intégrisme musulman et des traditions machistes, quelles qu’elles soient. Une âme qui se bat pour survivre et retrouver sa dignité : un cri déchirant et des pages pleines de hargne, bouleversantes d’humanité, en ce qu’elle a de pire et de meilleur...
