11 septembre 2001. Au lendemain des attentats du World Trade Center, le monde entier, tétanisé, retient son souffle. Mars 2003. C’est la guerre d’Irak. Une nouvelle ère s’ouvre sur un Moyen-Orient déjà blessé. L’heure de la mise à mort a sonné. Avram, Joumana, Menahem, Majda, Gamil, Samia, Jabril, Soliman, Rasha, Zyad, Ron, Thierry. Hommes, femmes, chrétiens, juifs, musulmans, autant de destins qui, du jour au lendemain, vont se retrouver fracassés. C’est à travers le regard de ces êtres de chair et de sang que nous assistons au démembrement d’un monde. Celui des Mille et une Nuits. Mais cette fois, ce sont les extrémismes qui déplacent les pions et deux visions de l’humanité qui s’affrontent : l’archaïsme islamiste et le mirage occidental. Y aura-t-il un vainqueur et un vaincu ? Ou ne restera-t-il que des cendres ?

A personal account of an Iraqi childhood Poppies of Iraq is Brigitte Findakly’s nuanced tender chronicle of her relationship with her homeland Iraq, co-written and drawn by her husband, the acclaimed cartoonist Lewis Trondheim. In spare and elegant detail, they share memories of her middle class childhood touching on cultural practices, the education system, Saddam Hussein’s state control, and her family’s history as Orthodox Christians in the arab world. Poppies of Iraq is intimate and wide-ranging; the story of how one can become separated from one’s homeland and still feel intimately connected yet ultimately estranged. Signs of an oppressive regime permeate a seemingly normal life: magazines arrive edited by customs; the color red is banned after the execution of General Kassim; Baathist militiamen are publicly hanged and school kids are bussed past them to bear witness. As conditions in Mosul worsen over her childhood, Brigitte’s father is always hopeful that life in Iraq will return to being secular and prosperous. The family eventually feels compelled to move to Paris, however, where Brigitte finds herself not quite belonging to either culture. Trondheim brings to life Findakly’s memories to create a poignant family portrait that covers loss, tragedy, love, and the loneliness of exile.

A challenging read that encourages reflection, The Principle examines a world inching closer to it's own destruction. Overpopulation, nuclear war, fascism, contemporary capitalism, and climate crisis all play roles in this epistolary novel in which a young philosopher grapples with the life of Werner Heisenberg, the Nobel Prize-winning German physicist. As he examines the dark historical events of the early 20th century alongside the luminous elegance of Heisenberg’s theoretical work, the narrator provides an intimate account of his own youthful struggles and desperate attempts to make sense of a fractured, globalized world. How could a man with such a beautiful mind have participated in such atrocities? Jérôme Ferrari offers a compelling, unflinching vision of the failings of European culture. The Principle is a hypnotic glimpse into the mysteries of the physical world and a deeply personal historical interrogation that will remind readers of Laurent Binet’s HHhH and Michael Frayn’s Tony Award-winning play Copenhagen.
