Miss Marple s’apprête à passer une semaine à l’hôtel Bertram, symbole mythique et préservé de l’Angleterre victorienne. Tout en dégustant thé et muffins, servis dans la plus pure tradition, la vieille demoiselle observe les autres clients de l’hôtel, parfaitement assortis à ce décor suranné : ladies respectables, ecclésiastiques, officiers en retraite et jeunes filles sorties de pension. Mais une mystérieuse disparition va troubler la tranquillité des lieux et révéler la part d’ombre de personnages un peu trop typiques pour être honnêtes.Traduction d’Elise Champon entièrement révisée

Book Short Summary:

From live productions of the 1950s like Requiem for a Heavyweight to big budget mini-series like Band of Brothers, long-form television programs have been helmed by some of the most creative and accomplished names in directing. Encyclopedia of Television Film Directors brings attention to the directors of these productions, citing every director of stand alone long-form television programs: made for TV movies, movie-length pilots, mini-series, and feature-length anthology programs, as well as drama, comedy, and musical specials of more than 60 minutes. Each of the nearly 2,000 entries provides a brief career sketch of the director, his or her notable works, awards, and a filmography. Many entries also provide brief discussions of key shows, movies, and other productions. Appendixes include Emmy Awards, DGA Awards, and other accolades, as well as a list of anthology programs. A much-needed reference that celebrates these often-neglected artists, Encyclopedia of Television Film Directors is an indispensable resource for anyone interested in the history of the medium.

Book Short Summary:

font size="+1"Fans of Murder on the Orient Express won't want to miss out on this insight into the life of arguably the greatest crime writer in the world, as Laura Thompson turns her highly acclaimed biographical skills to Agatha Christie./font size="+1" 'Laura Thompson's outstanding biography . . . is a pretty much perfect capturing of a life' Kate Mosse, Book of the Year 2007 It has been 100 years since Agatha Christie wrote her first novel and created the formidable Hercule Poirot. In this biography, Laura Thompson describes the Edwardian world in which she grew up, explores the relationships she had, including those with her two husbands and daughter, and investigates the mysteries still surrounding Christie's life - including her disappearance in 1926. Agatha Christie is a mystery and writing about her is a detection job in itself. But, with access to all of Christie's letters, papers and writing notebooks, as well as interviews with her grandson, daughter, son-in-law and their living relations, Thompson is able to unravel not only the detailed workings of Christie's detective fiction, but the truth behind her private life as well. font size="+1"Praise for Laura Thompson/font size="+1" 'Laura Thompson has certainly written the last word on Agatha Christie. Her book is a superb piece of biography' Literary Review 'Affectionate, admiring, perceptive and absolutely convincing' Sunday Telegraph 'This splendid account of [Christie's] life and work is unlikely to be bettered' Evening Standard 'A triumphant success' Daily Mail 'This book is a gem: fresh, intelligent and assured' Sunday Times 'Laura Thompson is a fine writer . . . and one can't help admire the way she breathes new life into an intriguing tale' London Review of Books 'Laura Thompson delivers the goods: a compelling narrative' The Times

La vie d'Agatha Christie - auteure de 80 romans et nouvelles vendus à deux milliards d'exemplaires dans le monde - enfin racontée en roman graphique ! Saviez vous qu'Agatha Christie a elle-même organisé sa propre disparition pour punir un mari infidèle, qu'elle n'a eu de cesse de voler, de faire du surf, qu'elle a voyagé en Irak, en Egypte, n'imaginant pas de limite à sa liberté. Indéniablement Dame Agatha nous est familière, et sa reconnaissance internationale. Pourtant qui connaît le vrai visage de la Duchesse de la mort ? Loin de n'être que cette bourgeoise conservatrice à l'embonpoint sympathique, coupable de romans policiers populaires, la vénérable Anglaise était avant tout une femme moderne, complexe et secrète. Un personnage bien plus énigmatique que tous ceux qu'elle a inventés ! "Agatha Christie, une femme libre" propose d'appréhender les multiples facettes de la reine du whodunit.

IBM تصمیم گرفت تا کار نرم افزار آن را به عهده شرکت دیگری بگذارد. این بود که شاهین خوشبختی بر دوش مایکروسافت نشست و IBM قراردی با شرکت کوچک مایکروسافت بست تا نرم افزارهای سازگار با کامپیوترهای شخصی IBM تولید کند. کامپیوتر‎های جدید IBM از پردازنده‎های 16 بیتی 8088 شرکت اینتل استفاده می‎کرد. بنابراین مایکروسافت برای فروش زبانهای برنامه سازی خود به یک سیستم عامل 16 بیتی نیاز داشت. در آن زمان شخصی بنام تیم پاترسون در کارگاه خانه خود یک کامپیوتر 16 بیتی کوچک ساخته بود و برای آن یک سیستم عامل ساده 16 بیتی نوشت که نام DOS 86 را برای آن انتخاب کرده بود. بیل گیتس کلیه حقوق سیستم عامل DOS86 را با قیمت 75 هزار دلار بدست آورد. بیل گیتس و پل آلن سیستم DOS86 را متناسب با کامپیوتر‎های شخصی IBM تغییر دادند و امکانات بیشتری را به آن افزودن و از آن یک سیستم عامل قوی 16 بیتی ساختند.

Book Short Summary:

This celebratory volume gives us the entire career of Donald Justice between two covers, including a rich handful of poems written since New and Selected Poems was published in 1995. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, Justice has been hailed by his contemporary Anthony Hecht as “the supreme heir of Wallace Stevens.” In poems that embrace the past, its terrors and reconciliations, Justice has become our poet of living memory. The classic American melancholy in his titles calls forth the tenor of our collective passages: “Bus Stop,” “Men at Forty,” “Dance Lessons of the Thirties,” “The Small White Churches of the Small White Towns.” This master of classical form has found in the American scene, and in the American tongue, all those virtues of our literature and landscape sought by Emerson and Henry James. For half a century he has endeavored, with painterly vividness and plainspoken elegance, to make those local views part of the literary heritage from which he has so often taken solace, and inspiration. School Letting Out (Fourth or Fifth Grade) The afternoons of going home from school Past the young fruit trees and the winter flowers. The schoolyard cries fading behind you then, And small boys running to catch up, as though It were an honor somehow to be near— All is forgiven now, even the dogs, Who, straining at their tethers, used to bark, Not from anger but some secret joy.

Book Short Summary:

In this remarkable book, Martha Hailey DuBose has given those multitudes of readers who love the mystery novel an indispensable addition to their libraries. Unlike other works on the subject, Women of Mystery is not merely a directory of the novelists and their publications with a few biographical details. DuBose combines extensive research into the lives of significant women mystery writers from Anna Katherine Green and Mary Roberts Rinehart with critical essays on their work, anecdotes, contemporary reviews and opinions and some of the women's own comments. She takes us through the Golden Age of the British women mystery writers, Christie, Sayers, Marsh, Allingham and Tey, to the leading crime novelists of today, focused on the women who have become legends of the genre. And though she laments, "so many mysteries, so little time," she makes a good effort a mentioning "some of the best of the rest." When DuBose writes of the lives of her principal players, she relates them to their times, their families, their personal situations and above all to their books. She subtly points out that Sayers, whose experience with the men in her life was inevitably disastrous, created in Lord Peter the ideal lover -- one who is all that a woman desires and needs. DuBose gives us the curriculum vitae that Dorothy Sayers created to help her bring Peter Wimsey to a virtual actuality. Ngaio Marsh would give up an active presence in the theatrical world she loved, but she recreated it for herself as well as her readers in many of her novels. The biographies of these woman are as engrossing as the stories they wrote, and Martha DuBose has shined a different, intimate and intriguing light on them, their works, and the lives that informed those works. This book is so full of treasure it's hard to see how any mystery enthusiast will be able to do without it. And what a gift it would make for anyone on your list who has been heard to announce "I love a mystery." Some of the treats inside: In the Beginning: The Mothers of Detection Anna Katherine Green Mary Roberts Rinehart A Golden Era: The Genteel Puzzlers Agatha Christie Dorothy L. Sayers Ngaio Marsh Margery Allingham Josephine Tey Modern Motives: Mysteries of the Murderous Mind Patricia Highsmith P.D. James Ruth Rendell Mary Higgins Clark Sue Grafton and more!!

Book Short Summary:

The true story of five talented young men in exile in the time of Hitler and Mao Tse-Tung. 'Altogether they knew five wars, three revolutions and - in the case of Ian Milner, accused in the Cold War of being a spy - a slander.' Regarded by one critic as 'the best book published in New Zealand in the last twenty years', this is a fascinating story based on letters, diaries and interviews in several countries. It is the story of a group of Rhodes scholars, five young men - James Bertram, Geoffrey Cox, Dan Davin, Ian Milner, John Mulgan - caught up in the turmoil of their times: Spain, Hitler's Germany, Greece and North Africa, Eastern Europe, China. They left New Zealand in the thirties for 'the dreaming spires' of Oxford. War intervened. Only one returned.
