In To the War Poets John Greening sends dispatches across the decades. In a sequence of verse letters he addresses the poets of the First World War directly, making connections yet always aware of distance: No larks, / just the passing of traffic.' Greening explores Englishness', but also, in his translations from German poets, goes beyond it. From the discovery of the Sutton Hoo burial in 1939 to the security forces' shut-down of Heathrow airport in 2006, the presence or threat of conflict underlies Greening's precise, unsentimental writing.

When it comes to relationships, Colin Singleton's type is girls named Katherine. And when it comes to girls named Katherine, Colin is always getting dumped. Nineteen times, to be exact. On a road trip miles from home, this anagram-happy, washed-up child prodigy has ten thousand dollars in his pocket, a bloodthirsty feral hog on his trail, and an overweight, Judge Judy-loving best friend riding shotgun-'but no Katherines. Colin is on a mission to prove The Theorem of Underlying Katherine Predictability, which he hopes will predict the future of any relationship, avenge Dumpees everywhere, and finally win him the girl. Love, friendship, and a dead Austro-Hungarian archduke add up to surprising and heart-changing conclusions in this ingeniously layered comic novel about reinventing oneself.

Miles Halter a seize ans mais n'a pas l'impression d'avoir vécu. Assoiffé d'expériences, il quitte le cocon familial pour le campus universitaire : ce sera le lieu de tous les possibles, de toutes les premières fois. Et de sa rencontre avec Alaska. La troublante, l'insaisissable Alaska Young, insoumise et fascinante. Amitiés fortes, amour, transgression, quête de sens : un roman qui fait rire, et fondre en larmes l'instant d'après...
Le défi en écrivant "Qui es-tu Alaska ?" était de comprendre qu'un roman est là pour révéler la vérité, sans se préoccuper des faits. Car, pour citer William Faulkner : "C'est la vérité qui m'intéresse, pas les faits".
Prise dans la spirale vertigineuse de ses pensées obsessionnelles, Aza, seize ans, n'avait pas l'intention d'enquêter sur la disparition du milliardaire Russell Pickett. Mais c'était compter sans Daisy, sa meilleure amie, et une récompense de cent mille dollars. Aza renoue alors avec le fils Pickett, Davis. L'improbable trio trouvera en chemin d'autres mystères et d'autres vérités, celles de la résilience, de l'amour et de l'amitié indéfectible.

A beautifully illustrated edition of Edmund Blundens rich prose memoir, John Greening couples the original and unrevised version of the text with the best of Blundens own annotations, commentaries, and illustrations.
Edmund Blunden (1896-1974) was one of the youngest of the war poets, enlisting straight from school to find himself in some of the Western Fronts most notorious hot-spots. His prose memoir, written in a rich, allusive vein, full of anecdote and human interest, is unique for its quiet authority and for the potency of its dream-like narrative. Once we accept the archaic conventions and catch the tone--which can be by turns horrifying or hilarious--Undertones ofWar gradually reveals itself as a masterpiece. It is clear why it has remained in print since it first appeared in 1928.This new edition not only offers the original unrevised version of the prose narrative, written at white heat when Blunden was teaching in Japan and had no access to his notes, but provides a great deal of supplementary material never before gathered together. Blundens Preliminary expresses the lifelong compulsion he felt to go over the ground again and for half a century he prepared new prefaces, added annotations. All those prefaces and a wide selection of his commentaries are includedhere--marginalia from friends first editions, remarks in letters, extracts from later essays, and a substantial part of his war diary. John Greening has provided a scholarly introduction discussing the bibliographical and historical background, and brings his poets eye to a much expanded (andmore representative) selection of Blundens war poetry. For the first time we can see the poet Blunden as the major figure he was. Blunden had always hoped for a properly illustrated edition of the work, and kept a folder full of possible pictures. The editor, with the Blunden familys help, has selected some of the best of them to include in this new edition.
