Introducing the new series from the international bestselling author of The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency books -- the Sunday Philosophy Club series is set in Edinburgh, Scotland, and stars Isabel Dalhousie, editor of "The Review of Applied Ethics" and part-­time detective. Isabel enjoys wading through the mysteries of life, everything from the morning's crossword to higher philosophical dilemmas, often with the advice of her ethically upright housekeeper, Grace. In this first novel of the series, Isabel witnesses a young man plunge to his death from the upper balcony of the Edinburgh Concert Hall. When Isabel discovers that the young victim had uncovered illicit activities at the brokerage house where he worked, the hunt for answers, and the killer, is on. This new series is a delightful look at a reasonable and logical woman who keeps getting involved in mysteries despite all reason and logic.

'Washington Square is perhaps the only novel in which a man has successfully invaded the feminine field and produced work comparable to Jane Austen's,­' said Graham Greene.

Inspired by a story Henry James heard at a dinner party, Washington Square tells how the rakish but idle Morris Townsend tries to win the heart of heiress Catherine Sloper against the objections of her father. Precise and understated, the book endures as a matchless social study of New York in the mid-­nineteenth century.

'Washington Square has long been beloved by almost all readers,­' noted Louis Auchincloss. 'The chief beauty of the novel lies in its expression--­by background, characterization, and dialogue--­of its mild heroine's mood of long-­suffering patience. Everything is ordered, polite, still: the charming old square in the pre-­brownstone city, the small, innocent, decorous social gatherings, the formal good manners, the quaint reasonableness of the dialogues. . . ....

Attention : téléchargement non autorisé dans certains pays. Lire la note sur le droit d'auteur. Auteur décédé en 1960. Des phénomènes inquiétants agitent Oran: des rats meurent en grand nombre, puis des hommes sont victimes d'une maladie qui semble être la peste. La ville se trouve bientôt isolée du reste du monde. Face à cet enfermement, face à la menace diffuse de la mort, l'écrivain décrit les réactions de chacun, réactions d'une très grande diversité allant du dévouement au repliement sur soi.­De nombreuses hypothèses ont été avancées pour donner une interprétation à ce roman, une signification à cette peste. Mais nul doute que les lecteurs de 1947 y ont retrouvé des souvenirs peu agréables et tout récents: Les camps de quarantaine, où les familles sont séparées, font penser aux camps de concentration. Les morts finissent dans des fours. Il y a des filières d'évasion comme pour le passage d'une ligne de démarcation. Le ravitaillement est insuffisant et le marché noir . . .
