• Charles Frazier Retour à Cold Mountain Dans les derniers temps de la guerre de Sécession, un homme traverse l'immense espace américain. Il s'appelle Inman.
    Soldat sudiste, blessé à la bataille de Petersburg, il a déserté dans l'espoir de retrouver sa région natale, la Caroline- du-Nord, où l'attend Ada, la femme qu'il aime. Restée seule à la mort de son père, celle-ci essaie tant bien que mal de préserver le domaine familial. Le moment de leurs retrouvailles approche, et chacun doit se préparer à affronter un monde qui a radicalement changé.
    C'est cette aventure toute simple - simple comme l'Odyssée - que nous conte le romancier américain Charles Frazier, dont ce premier livre, couronné par le National Book Award, a été publié dans dix-huit pays. Bouleversant roman d'amour, hymne à la terre et à l'espace américains, Retour à Cold Mountain est une oeuvre inspirée, traversée par le grand vent de l'Histoire.

    Une lenteur et un lyrisme qui s'accompagnent d'une formidable dilatation de l'espace, d'une urgence, d'une sensualité et presque d'une métaphysique de la nature, comme les écrivains américains en ont toujours eu le secret.
    Frédéric Vitoux, Le Nouvel Observateur.

    Un écrivain qui a pleinement réussi. Un grand roman.
    Jean Soublin, Le Monde. 

  • Sixties, fin fond des Appalaches. Luce, jeune femme farouche et indépendante, se voit confier la charge des jumeaux de sa soeur défunte. Les enfants ont vu leur beau-père, Bud, assassiner leur mère, et se réfugient depuis dans un mutisme inquiétant. Luce va tenter de réapprendre la vie à ces deux écorchés vifs, tandis qu'elle-même reprend goût à l'amour et à la compagnie des hommes. À celle de Stubblefield en particulier. Mais leur idylle est menacée par le retour de Bud, blanchi du meurtre de sa femme, et bien décidé à retrouver le magot que les deux orphelins, croit-il, lui ont volé.      Un western d'une beauté crue et crépusculaire par l'auteur de Retour à Cold Mountain.
      Avec ce très beau roman, Charles Frazier invente le suspense spatial littéralement haletant. Éric Chevillard, Le Monde des livres.

    En réconciliant frousse et féerie, Charles Frazier fait des Appalaches une destination littéraire de choix. Bruno Juffin, Les Inrockuptibles.

  • The main lesson Luce had learned was that you couldn't count on anybody. In the lonesome beauty of the forest, across the far shore of the mountain lake from town, Luce acts as caretaker to an empty, decaying Lodge, a relic of holidaymakers a century before. Her days are long and peaceful, her nights filled with Nashville radio and yellow lights shimmering on the black water. A solitary life, and the perfect escape. Until the stranger children come. Bringing fire. And murder. And love.

  • NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Charles Frazier, the acclaimed author of Cold Mountain and Thirteen Moons, returns with a dazzling novel set in small-town North Carolina in the early 1960s. With his brilliant portrait of Luce, a young woman who inherits her murdered sisters troubled twins, Frazier has created his most memorable heroine. Before the children, Luce was content with the reimbursements of the rich Appalachian landscape, choosing to live apart from the small community around her. But the coming of the children changes everything, cracking open her solitary life in difficult, hopeful, dangerous ways. In a lean, tight narrative, Nightwoods resonates with the timelessness of a great work of art.

  • This magnificent novel by one of America';s finest writers is the epic of one man';s remarkable journey, set in nineteenth-century America against the background of a vanishing people and a rich way of life.
    At the age of twelve, under the Wind moon, Will is given a horse, a key, and a map, and sent alone into the Indian Nation to run a trading post as a bound boy. It is during this time that he grows into a man, learning, as he does, of the raw power it takes to create a life, to find a home. In a card game with a white Indian named Featherstone, Will wins - for a brief moment - a mysterious girl named Claire, and his passion and desire for her spans this novel. As Will';s destiny intertwines with the fate of the Cherokee Indians - including a Cherokee Chief named Bear - he learns how to fight and survive in the face of both nature and men, and eventually, under the Corn Tassel Moon, Will begins the fight against Washington City to preserve the Cherokee';s homeland and culture. And he will come to know the truth behind his belief that "only desire trumps time." Brilliantly imagined, written with great power and beauty by a master of American fiction, Thirteen Moons is a stunning novel about a man';s passion for a woman, and how loss, longing and love can shape a man';s destiny over the many moons of a life.
