Description“Poor fallen souls. I had to kill you … May 1993. Two sisters, Alice, 20, and Amber, 21, are found dead on the banks of the Garonne. Dressed in communion dresses, they face each other, attached to two tree trunks.

The young Martin Servaz, who has just joined the PJ Toulouse, is participating in his first survey. Very quickly, he is interested in Erik Lang, famous author of crime novels at the work as cruel as disturbing.

Were not the two sisters his fans? One of his greatest successes is not called La Communiante? … The affair has an unexpected and violent denouement, leaving Servaz gnawed by the doubt: in this investigation, he believes, a piece lack, an essential piece.

February 2018. On a cold night, the writer Erik Lang discovers his murdered wife … she also dressed in communiante. Twenty-five years after the double crime, Martin Servaz is caught by the case. The shock awakens his first fears. Until the obsession.

A wife, two sisters, three communicants … and if the investigation of 1993 was wrong guilty? For Servaz, the past, resurfacing, will turn into a nightmare. A nightmare written in black ink. Fear, submission, lies, manipulation. Bernard Minier’s new thriller.”

Biography

“Bernard Minier”

Authors Biography

“Translated into 20 languages, Bernard Minier is one of the most widely read thrillers in France. The series from Glacé, his first novel, is now being broadcast around the world. Sisters is his sixth novel.

Bernard Minier is a French author of crime novel. Bernard Minier grew up in Montréjeau at the foot of the Pyrenees, then studied in Tarbes and Toulouse before spending a year in Spain. He lives today in Essonne in Île-de-France. He first made a career in the Customs Administration, as principal controller, while participating in news competitions before taking the plunge and sending a novel manuscript to editors.

He publishes his first novel, “Glacé”, in 2011. Hailed by the press Glacé has very quickly enjoyed a wide public success and has been translated or is being translated into a dozen languages, including English. It meets the same success in several European countries.

“Glacé” features Commander Servaz, a deeply human and literate Toulouse police officer, confronted with a series of horrendous and incomprehensible crimes in the Pyrenees in the heart of winter. The novel won numerous prizes, including the Polar Prize at the Cognac Festival and the “Découverte” Polars Pourpres Award. It has been adapted into a television series in 2017.

His second novel, “The Circle”, published in 2012, returns to the same character and is this time in the middle of a small university town in the South West. His novels emphasize oppressive atmospheres, psychological violence and complex characters, as well as “the attention he pays to the decorations, natural in particular.”

Description : In the 19th century, religious institutes (orders and congregations) underwent an unprecedented revival. As partners in a large-scale religious modernisation movement, they were welcomed by the Roman Catholic Church in its pursuit of a new role in society (especially in the educational and health-care sectors). At the same time, the Church also deemed it necessary to keep their spectacular growth in check. Until the 1960s religious institutes played an important role both in society at large as well as within the church (for example, at the level of the missions, liturgy and art). Yet, relatively little research has been done on their development either in ecclesiastical or in broad cultural history. As a basis for further study, The European Forum on the History of Religious Insitutes in the 19th and 20th Centuries offers this study of the historiography of religious institutes and of their position in civil and canon law.

It will assist scholars in their search for material on the anthropological, educational, medical, scientific, social, political, and religious dimensions of the missionary presence in China prior to 1950.The guide contains nearly five hundred entries identifying both Roman Catholic and Protestant missionary sending agencies and related religious congregations. Each entry includes the organization's name in English, followed by its Chinese name, country of origin, and denominational affiliation. Special attention has been paid to identifying the many small, lesser-known groups that arrived in China during the early decades of the twentieth century. In addition, a special category of the as yet little-studied indigenous communities of Chinese women has also been included. Multiple indexes enhance the guide's accessibility.

Description : James Joyce’s Finnegans Wake has repeatedly been declared to be entirely untranslatable. Nonetheless, it has been translated, transposed, or transcreated into a surprising variety of languages – including complete renditions in French, German, Portuguese, Dutch, Japanese, and Korean, and partial renditions in Italian, Spanish, and a variety of other languages. Impossible Joyce explores the fascinating range of different approaches adopted by translators in coming to grips with Joyce’s astonishing literary text. In this study, Patrick O’Neill builds on an approach first developed in his book Polyglot Joyce, but deepens his focus by considering Finnegans Wake exclusively. Venturing from Umberto Eco’s assertion that the novel is a machine designed to generate as many meanings as possible for readers, he provides a sustained examination of the textual effects generated by comparative readings of translated excerpts. In doing so, O’Neill makes manifest the ways in which attempts to translate this extraordinary text have resulted in a cumulative extension of Finnegans Wake into an even more extraordinary macrotext encompassing and subsuming its collective renderings.

Description : This classic play has been translated before, but only into a pallid approximation of the original joual. Scots, however, is an energetic and earthy vernacular with a distinctive sound system equal to joual. The play, a landmark in Canadian theatre, can now be truly appreciated in this superb translation, just as audiences in Glasgow and Moscow have learned to laugh with these ladies.

Description : Macau: the bulbous nose of China, a peninsula and two islands strung together like a three-bead necklace. It was time to find a life for myself. To make something out of nothing. The end of hope and the beginning of it too. After moving with her husband to the tiny, bustling island of Macau, Grace Miller finds herself a stranger in a foreign land—a lone redhead towering above the crowd on the busy Chinese streets. As she is forced to confront the devastating news of her infertility, Grace’s marriage is fraying and her dreams of family have been shattered. She resolves to do something bold, something her impetuous mother would do, and she turns to what she loves: baking and the pleasure of afternoon tea. Grace opens a café where she serves tea, coffee, and macarons—the delectable, delicate French cookies colored like precious stones—to the women of Macau. There, among fellow expatriates and locals alike, Grace carves out a new definition of home and family. But when her marriage reaches a crisis, secrets Grace thought she had buried long ago rise to the surface. Grace realizes it’s now or never to lay old ghosts to rest and to begin to trust herself. With each mug of coffee brewed, each cup of tea steeped and macaron baked, Grace comes to learn that strength can be gleaned from the unlikeliest of places. A delicious, melt-in-your-mouth novel featuring the sweet pleasures of French pastries and the exotic scents and sights of China, The Color of Tea is a scrumptious story of love, friendship and renewal.
