Description

Bill Bryson is American by birth but continually mocks the American ,way of of life and the American values. An American author who is at once able to poke fun at his own countrys' foibles whilst showing genuine affection for them. En tentant de résoudre l'énigme de ce surprenant cadeau, la fillette se retrouve propulsée dans un univers merveilleux : les Quatre Royaumes, peuplé de poupées articulées plus vraies que nature, de maisons en pain d'épices et d'une terrible armée de souris.

Dépêché sur les lieux, le commissaire Brunetti ne trouve aucune preuve flagrante infirmant cette hypothèse. Jusqu’au jour où le jeune homme, guéri, décide qu’il est temps de faire l’amour à sa délicieuse épouse.

Of course there were things Bryson missed about Blighty but any sense of loss was countered by the joy of rediscovering some of the forgotten treasures of his childhood: the glories of a New England autumn; the pleasingly comical sight of oneself in shorts; and motel rooms where you can generally count on being awakened in the night by a piercing shriek and the sound of a female voice pleading, ‘ Put the gun down, Vinnie, I’ll do anything you say. Au programme, excursions à la mer avec le canoë et les chaussures en plastique qui donnent des ampoules, visites clandestines de l'hôtel à l'heure de la sieste, représentation exceptionnelle du grand cirque Pipolo, sans oublier le passage du tour de France. The author has the rare knack of being out of his depth wherever he goes - even (perhaps especially) in the land of his birth. Dans les ruines brûlantes de la cité millénaire de Kaboul, la mort rôde, un turban noir autour du crâne.Knitting aficionado and notable artisan Clara Parkes delves into her storied travels with this inspiring and witty New York Times bestselling memoir on a creative life enriched by her adventures around the world. Depuis qu'on l'a amputée d'une partie d'elle-même et privée de sa famille, elle ne rêve plus que d'une chose : s'affranchir de la tyrannie du tout-puissant Orion, Dieu parmi les dieux. Pour Durzo Blint, l'assassinat est un art et il est l'artiste le plus accompli de la cité, grâce à des talents secrets hérités de la nuit des temps. The catalogues, for example; it did feel at times like we got a catalogue for everything under the sun without ever actually asking for them. Whether discussing the strange appeal of breakfast pizza or the jaw-slackening direness of American TV, Bill Bryson brings his inimitable brand of bemused wit to bear on that strangest of phenomena – the American way of life.
