Comment un riche Flamand se prend de passion pour la chimie et l’alchimie et veut d?couvrir le secret de l’Absolu, c’est-?-dire de l’unit? de la mati?re. Comment ce sombre g?nie ruine sa famille. Comment la science rend fou et comment Balthazar Cla?s croit d?couvrir dans ses derniers instants, et sans pouvoir le communiquer, le secret auquel il a sacrifi? ses biens, ses proches et sa vie. De tous les romans de Balzac, aucun ne justifie mieux le mot de Baudelaire: «j’ai maintes fois ?t? ?tonn? que la grande gloire de Balzac f?t de passer pour un observateur; il m’avait toujours sembl? que son principal m?rite ?tait d’?tre visionnaire et visionnaire passionn?». La Recherche de l’Absolu est aussi l’une des ?uvres les plus somptueusement pittoresques de Balzac, v?ritable tableau flamand que balaient les ombres de Rembrandt.

For anyone who’s ever wished to, but had trouble starting, keeping, or finishing a journal or sketchbook comes Wreck This Journal, an illustrated book that features a subversive collection of prompts, asking readers to muster up their best mistake- and mess-making abilities to fill the pages of the book (and destroy them). Acclaimed illustrator Keri Smith encourages journalers to engage in «destructive» acts-poking holes through pages, adding photos and defacing them, painting with coffee, and more-in order to experience the true creative process. Readers discover a new way of art and journal making-and new ways to escape the fear of the blank page and fully engage in the creative process.

In this stunning novel Andre Dubus III set in present-day California a story of human conflict that has the power and resonance of a classical tragedy. Working on a road crew in California, a former colonel in the Shah’s Air Force yearns to restore his family’s dignity. When an attractive bungalow comes up at a country auction for a fraction of its value, he sees an opportunity to dream his own American Dream, for himself, his wife and children. But for the house’s former owner, a recovering alcoholic and addict down on her luck, the loss of her father’s house is the latest in a series of insults life has dealt her. When he becomes involved with a married policeman who takes up her cause, the stage is set for a gut-wrenching tragedy, which keeps the reader gripped and moved to the last page. Dubus has an extraordinary ability to get us inside each of his characters, to see the world as it is for each of them. These are ordinary people, people just looking for a small piece of ground to stand on, driven by the same ordinary needs into inevitable conflict — a conflict in which even the reader, rooting for all of them, has no safe haven. Unfolding relentlessly from its opening pages, House of Sand and Fog is a narrative triumph. It turns both the traditional immigrant success story and a modern love story upside down with a heartrending outcome, combining American realism with a Shak.
