    Linda Dalles

    Alors qu'elle est dans les douches de la salle de sport, Miranda est rejointe par deux inconnus. Deux hommes qui lui offrent un moment de plaisir intense qu'elle n'est pas près d'oublier... Encore embrumée par les vapeurs de cette douche torride, la jeune femme reprend normalement sa vie d'étudiante.
    Jusqu'au jour où elle découvre son nouveau professeur de littérature... qui n'est autre que Stanislas, l'un de ses deux compagnons de jeu  ! Les deux hommes lui font alors une étrange proposition  : 100 nuits torrides en leur compagnie et pas une de plus.
    Miranda accepte. Au fur et à mesure de leurs étreintes, elle se surprend à éprouver des sentiments envers son séduisant professeur. Mais le froid Stanislas est hostile à toute forme d'engagement. Et le faire succomber semble impossible alors que le temps est compté...

    EXTRAIT
    Je m'approche d'elle et dépose un bisou bruyant sur sa joue, ce qui la fait sourire.
    - Je vais me coucher !
    Je m'apprête à sortir de la cuisine quand mon père demande :
    - Et moi ?
    Je me retourne et ris en approchant pour lui faire un bisou sur la joue, il sourit satisfait.
    - Bah quand même, je pensais que tu allais oublier ton vieux père.
    - Jamais !
    - Bonne nuit !
    - Bonne nuit, ma chérie.
    - Bonne nuit, lance ma mère un peu en retard.
    Je passe par la salle de bains pour mettre ma chemise de nuit et arrive sur la pointe des pieds dans la chambre. Je me glisse sous les draps quand je vois une masse sombre grimper sur mon lit.
    - Qu'est-ce que... ?
    - Chut, c'est moi, chuchote Brigitte.
    - Ce lit est pris !
    - Arrête tes bêtises.
    Elle tape gentiment sur mon bras en s'allongeant à côté de moi.
    - Alors comme ça, il te plaît bien ce Hans Wagner ?
    - Quoi ? Pourquoi tu dis ça ?
    - Tu le dévores des yeux.
    Je rougis à l'idée que ça ait pu se voir.
    - Tu dis n'importe quoi ! dis-je en me retournant pour lui tourner le dos.
    - Tu sais qu'il te regarde de la même manière ?
    Je me tourne légèrement pour la voir, je devine qu'elle sourit.
    - Ah oui ?
    - Oui, oui.
    - Non, tu mens.
    Je repose ma tête sur l'oreiller. Elle rit doucement.
    - Si tu veux, je peux aller lui demander, glousse-t-elle.
    - Nan ! On n'est plus à l'école.
    - De toute façon, je ne me remarierai pas tant que tu n'as pas retrouvé quelqu'un de ton côté.

  • Mary Lou Williams -- pianist, arranger, composer, and probably the most influential woman in the history of jazz -- receives the attention she has long deserved in the definitive biography by a leading scholar of women in jazz.
    The illegitimate child of an impoverished and indifferent mother, Williams began performing publicly at the age of seven when she became known admiringly in her native Pittsburgh as "the little piano girl of East Liberty," playing one day for the Mellons at bridge teas and the next in gambling dens where the hat was passed for change. She grew up with the jazz of the early part of the century, championed by the likes of Earl Hines and Fats Waller, yet unlike so many other musicians of her time, she was open to new forms in jazz -- she was an early champion of bop, and a mentor and colleague to its central figures, such as Thelonius Monk and Bud Powell -- and in broader musical styles as well (after her conversion to Catholicism, she wrote masses and other sacred music).
    Most of the other famous women in jazz -- Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald -- have been singers. Williams was instead a phenomenal pianist who performed solo, with small groups and big bands, in vaudeville and clubs, and on numerous records. But she is equally well known today as a composer and arranger of remarkable versatility and power, having worked with, among others, Duke Ellington and Benny Goodman. Her compositions have been recorded by artisits as varied as Marin McPartland, Dizzy Gillespie, Nat "King" Cole, Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald, and herself -- and, more recently, by cutting-edge players Geri Allen and Dave Douglas.
    But Williams was more than "just a musician"; her interests were catholic in both senses, and she struggled to combine her love of music with her love of God. She was a tireless humanitarian, and made ongoing attempts to help dozens of down-and-out musicians; in the 1950s, her apartment was, at times, virtually a rehab. Though she was often in emotional despair, she found comfort for her many disappointments and hurts not only in her music but in her spirituality.
    Linda Dahl, granted unprecedented access to the large Williams archive, has given us the whole of Williams's very full life, from her often harrowing days on the road to her tumultuous marriages and love affairs, from the ups and downs of her unique fifty-year career to the remarkable spirituality that came to inform both her daily life and her music. This is a striking protrait of one of our least understood and most important musicians.

  • Medical literature for health care practitioners on the evaluation and treatment of breastfeeding issues has been disjointed, conflicting, and difficult to find. The field of breastfeeding medicine itself is nonexistent-there are no "breastfeeding doctors" who are specifically trained to understand this complex and interactive process. While much of the literature about breastfeeding describes how it "should" work, there is currently nothing available to explain why it often fails and how to treat it.Clinician's Guide to Breastfeeding: Evidence-based Evaluation and Management is written for health care practitioners who work with breastfeeding mothers; physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, and lactation consultants. It provides clear information and clinically tested strategies to help professionals guide new mothers to breastfeed successfully. The first of its kind to consider the entirety of the breastfeeding experience,Clinician's Guide to Breastfeeding is written by Dr. Linda D. Dahl, a leading expert on the subject. It is a comprehensive review of breastfeeding, covering objective analyses of ideal or "normal" nursing, as well as the evaluation and treatment of abnormal nursing, including case studies to illustrate the treatment decision-making process.

  • Color Atlas of Fetal and Neonatal Histology serves as a comprehensive atlas of the developmental histology of the major organs from 15 weeks gestation to the neonatal period. Each section includes text on basic embryologic processes that influence the development of each organ and highlight major histologic features that correspond with certain developmental periods. In addition, there are many color photomicrographs at key developmental stages to assist the reader in identifying appropriate histologic changes at each developmental stage. This book will be of great value to students of embryology, pathology residents and fellows, and attending pathologists who perform fetal autopsies.

  • The first edition of Color Atlas of Fetal and Neonatal Histology was an important step in updating the histology texts available to practicing pathologists and pathology trainees who perform fetal autopsy and/or participate in research involving fetal tissues. It was a well-received volume that filled a major gap in pathology references related to normal histology and provided a comprehensive, state-of-the art review of fetal and neonatal histology.  While the basics of fetal histology have changed little in the intervening years since publication of the first edition, this successor edition provides new insights and a fresh perspective.
    This book contains six new chapters including: blood vessels and lymphatics, external genitalia, eye, ear, skin, and maceration changes. Many existing chapters have also been expanded to address a greater breadth of fetal and neonatal histology such as postnatal testis development and the cardiac conduction system. The "Special Considerations" sections were also expanded in many chapters to address particularly problematic issues within individual organ systems. The book reviews the histology of the major organ systems in the fetus and neonate and provides detailed images, up-to-date references, and practical guidelines for identifying tissues across all gestational ages of development.  
    The second edition of Color Atlas of Fetal and Neonatal Histology serves as the ultimate go-to resource for pathologists and researchers dealing with, and interested in, fetal and neonatal histology.  It provides a comprehensive summary of the current status of the field with excellent and extensive illustrative examples that help guide the clinical study of fetal and neonatal histology and stimulate investigative efforts with fetal tissue.
