«Je m'appelle Jean Atwood. Je suis interne des hôpitaux et major de ma promo. Je me destine à la chirurgie gynécologique. Je vise un poste de chef de clinique dans le meilleur service de France. Mais on m'oblige, au préalable, à passer six mois dans une minuscule unité de «Médecine de La Femme», dirigée par un barbu mal dégrossi qui n'est même pas gynécologue, mais généraliste! S'il s'imagine que je vais passer six mois à son service, il se trompe lourdement. Qu'est-ce qu'il croit? Qu'il va m'enseigner mon métier? J'ai reçu une formation hors pair, je sais tout ce que doit savoir un gynécologue chirurgien pour opérer, réparer et reconstruire le corps féminin. Alors, je ne peux pas – et je ne veux pas – perdre mon temps à écouter des bonnes femmes épancher leur cœur et raconter leur vie. Je ne vois vraiment pas ce qu'elles pourraient m'apprendre.»

Bruno Sachs is a country doctor who makes house calls and feels deeply for his patients. There are broken bones, unwanted pregnancies, people without the will to live, a friend dying of cancer. His pity for his fellow creatures is both his motivating force and his own untreatable condition. Among the deaths, love affairs, and small town gossip, a love story emerges at the heart of the novel-between Dr. Sachs and a young woman upon whom he once performed an abortion. The Case of Dr. Sachs is a novel filled with voices of silent suffering and arias of quiet joy, and one dedicated to the notion that literature, like medicine, can save lives.

As can be expected, mayhem -- and hilarity -- ensues.

Ozouf portrays ten French women of letters whose lives span the period from the eve of the French Revolution to the resurgence of the feminist movement in the late 20th century.

Praise for Julie Klassen "A remarkable tale with many unpredictable twists and turns."--CBA Retailers+Resources "A treat for [readers] who want their historical romances served up with a generous dash of mystery."--Booklist "[Klassen's] work appeals to all who seek a riveting Regency romance."--RT Book Reviews Abigail Foster is the practical daughter. She fears she will end up a spinster, especially as she has little dowry, and the one man she thought might marry her seems to have fallen for her younger, prettier sister. Facing financial ruin, Abigail and her father search for more affordable lodgings, until a strange solicitor arrives with an astounding offer: the use of a distant manor house abandoned for eighteen years. The Fosters journey to imposing Pembrooke Park and are startled to find it entombed as it was abruptly left: tea cups encrusted with dry tea, moth-eaten clothes in wardrobes, a doll's house left mid-play... The handsome local curate welcomes them, but though he and his family seem acquainted with the manor's past, the only information they offer is a stern warning: Beware trespassers drawn by rumors that Pembrooke Park contains a secret room filled with treasure. This catches Abigail's attention. Hoping to restore her family's finances--and her dowry--Abigail looks for this supposed treasure. But eerie sounds at night and footprints in the dust reveal she isn't the only one secretly searching the house. Then Abigail begins receiving anonymous letters, containing clues about the hidden room and startling discoveries about the past. As old friends and new foes come calling at Pembrooke Park, secrets come to light. Will Abigail find the treasure and love she seeks...or very real danger?

This book, which is in French, derives from a detailed empirical study of the Komo, a population of some 60,000 hunter-gatherers in Zaire. Dr de Mahieu builds a new theory of ritual practice on to his description and analysis of circumcision rituals among the Komo, and draws important comparisons between the significance of these rituals to the actual participants and to wider Komo society and beliefs.

A beautiful, vibrant memoir about growing up motherless in 1970s and ’80s San Francisco with an openly gay father. After his wife dies in a car accident, bisexual writer and activist Steve Abbott moves with his two-year-old daughter to San Francisco. There they discover a city in the midst of revolution, bustling with gay men in search of liberation—few of whom are raising a child. Steve throws himself into San Francisco’s vibrant cultural scene. He takes Alysia to raucous parties, pushes her in front of the microphone at poetry readings, and introduces her to a world of artists, thinkers, and writers. But the pair live like nomads, moving from apartment to apartment, with a revolving cast of roommates and little structure. As a child Alysia views her father as a loving playmate who can transform the ordinary into magic, but as she gets older Alysia wants more than anything to fit in. The world, she learns, is hostile to difference. In Alysia’s teens, Steve’s friends—several of whom she has befriended—fall ill as AIDS starts its rampage through their community. While Alysia is studying in New York and then in France, her father tells her it’s time to come home; he’s sick with AIDS. Alysia must choose whether to take on the responsibility of caring for her father or continue the independent life she has worked so hard to create. Reconstructing their life together from a remarkable cache of her father’s journals, letters, and writings, Alysia Abbott gives us an unforgettable portrait of a tumultuous, historic time in San Francisco as well as an exquisitely moving account of a father’s legacy and a daughter’s love.
