  • M train

    Patti Smith

    REVISED EDITION WITH FIVE THOUSAND WORDS BONUS MATERIAL AND NEW PHOTOGRAPHS M Train begins in the tiny Greenwich Village cafe where Smith goes every morning for black coffee, ruminates on the world as it is and the world as it was, and writes in her notebook. Through prose that shifts fluidly between dreams and reality, past and present, and across a landscape of creative aspirations and inspirations, we travel to Frida Kahlo's Casa Azul in Mexico; to a meeting of an Arctic explorer's society in Berlin; to a ramshackle seaside bungalow in New York's Far Rockaway that Smith acquires just before Hurricane Sandy hits; and to the graves of Genet, Plath, Rimbaud and Mishima.

    Woven throughout are reflections on the writer's craft and on artistic creation. Here, too, are singular memories of Smith's life in Michigan and the irremediable loss of her husband, Fred Sonic Smith. Braiding despair with hope and consolation, illustrated with her signature Polaroids, M Train is a meditation on travel, detective shows, literature and coffee. It is a powerful, deeply moving book by one of the most remarkable artists at work today.

    Jeffrey Eugenides

    Quelle différence y a-t-il entre une jeune paysanne grecque fuyant Smyrne incendiée par les Turcs en 1922, et une lolita américaine qui découvre, à l'âge de quinze ans, qu'elle est aussi un garçon ? Deux générations.
    C'est en effet ce qui sépare Desdemona et Cal, la grand-mère et la petite-fille. C'est aussi la durée dans laquelle s'inscrit cette extraordinaire saga gréco-américaine. Mi-épopée (à la troisième personne), mi-roman d'apprentissage (à la première), ce livre est un hybride. Tout comme son héros/héroïne, qui connaît la joie - et la douleur - d'appartenir aux deux sexes, avant d'opter définitivement pour celui qui lui convient.
    Des collines d'Asie Mineure aux villas cossues de Grosse Pointe, du fracas des canonnières dans le Bosphore aux explosions des grenades lacrymogènes dans les rues de Detroit, du ragtime au rock'n'roll, un demi-siècle d'Histoire se déroule sous nos yeux. Pour aboutir à ce conte de fées moderne la transformation d'une teenager en un personnage mythologique. Dix ans après Virgin Suicides, Jeffrey Eugenides est de retour avec ce livre qui transcende tous les genres : c'est une idylle, une comédie postmoderne, une histoire de la littérature, un récit érotique, une confession, une élégie.
    Bref, un roman irrésistible.

    Richard Ford

    First, I'll tell about the robbery our parents committed. Then the murders, which happened later.

    In 1956, Dell Parsons' family came to a stop in Great Falls, Montana, the way many military families did following the war. His father, Bev, was a talkative, plank-shouldered man, an airman from Alabama with an optimistic and easy-scheming nature. Dell and his twin sister, Berner, could easily see why their mother might have been attracted to him. But their mother Neeva - from an educated, immigrant, Jewish family - was shy, artistic and alienated from their father's small-town world of money scrapes and living on-the-fly. It was more bad instincts and bad luck that Dell's parents decided to rob the bank. They weren't reckless people.

    In the days following the arrest, Dell and Berner lock themselves inside the house and wait for the friend their mother said would come. When no-one does, Berner runs away. Dell, a solitary child obsessed with bee-keeping and chess, does not have friends to call on.

    Dell is saved before the authorities think to arrive. Driving across the Montana border into Saskatchewan his life hurtles towards the unknown, towards a hotel in a deserted town, towards the violent and enigmatic American Arthur Remlinger, and towards Canada itself - a landscape of rescue and abandonment. But as Dell discovers, in this new world of secrets and upheaval, he is not the only one whose own past lies on the other side of a border.

    In Canada, Richard Ford has created a masterpiece. A haunting and visionary novel of vast landscapes, complex identities and fragile humanity. It questions the fine line between the normal and the extraordinary, and the moments in our lives that take us into new worlds.
