Among the new books that have just been published, here is my selection of some of the more interesting ones that you can read in September 2018:


The Last Palace
Europe’s Extraordinary Century Through Five Lives
and one House in Prague

by Norman Eisen
Headline
6 September 2018

 

 

Prague, 1924.
After World War I, Otto Petschek, a Jewish banker, built a magnificent palace in Prague. When the Germans come to power, the Petscheks had to abandon their home and to flee Prague. The palace will change hands many times. First, the House is occupied by the Nazis, and after the war, the palace became the U.S embassy.

The Wisdom of Wolves, by Elli H. Radinger, a fascinating book!

La-sagesse-des-loups-forêt

 

The new book by Elli H. Radinger coming soon in English!

Elli Radinger has been observing wild wolves for over 25 years. This wolf expert shares with us her discoveries on the intelligence of these animals, and their ability to devote themselves to others, even if it means sacrificing their own life. She proves wrong everything we have heard about wolves since our childhood and reveals unknown facts on their life and behaviour. The myth of the big bad wolf, agressive and solitary, is completely untrue. If you love nature, animals and adventures, this book is for you! 

A playlist for a great night!

This playlist takes us back to the end of the 70’s up to the beginning of the 90’s. Nothing but the best to have some brilliant nights!

Each song has its own story, here are some of them:

When Kate Bush wrote Wuthering Heights, she was inspired by Emily Brontë’s only novel, a masterpiece, which makes her singing out of this world. She is singing from the point of view of the heroin, Catherine Earnshaw, calling Heathcliff, the man she loved and pushed away. Listening to it, one can easily imagine Catherine wandering around the wuthering moor of Yorkshire, tormented and suffering from the tumult of her feelings.
