    Veuf et retraité, Ray Mathis mène une vie solitaire dans sa ferme des Appalaches. Dans cette région frappée par la drogue, la misère sociale et les incendies ravageurs, il contemple les ruines d'une Amérique en train de sombrer. Le jour où un dealer menace la vie de son fils, Ray se dit qu'il est temps de se lever. C'est le début d'un combat contre tout ce qui le révolte. Avec peut-être, au bout du chemin, un nouvel espoir.

    Au sommet de son art, David Joy nous offre avec Nos vies en flammes une oeuvre magistrale. Après Ce lien entre nous (2020), unanimement salué par la critique et les libraires, il nous prouve une fois de plus l'étendue de son talent.

  • Caroline du Nord. Darl Moody vit dans un mobile home sur l'ancienne propriété de sa famille. Un soir, alors qu'il braconne sur des terres voisines, il tue accidentellement un homme. Lorsqu'il réalise qu'il s'agit d'un membre du clan Brewer, connu dans cette région désolée des Appalaches pour sa violence et sa cruauté, il craint pour sa vie et celle de ses proches. Une seule personne peut l'aider : son meilleur ami, Calvin Hooper. Mais Dwayne Brewer, à la recherche de son frère disparu, a vite fait de remonter la piste jusqu'à Darl et Calvin. Pour eux, le cauchemar ne fait que commencer.
    Avec ce roman poignant comme une chanson de Springsteen, David Joy nous livre un nouveau portrait noir et sans concession des Appalaches. Quelle rédemption pour ces régions violentes et magnifiques, bénies par la nature, mais réduites au désespoir ? Seul un grand écrivain est capable de nous donner une réponse.

  • Après avoir quitté l'armée et l'horreur des champs de bataille du Moyen-Orient, Thad Broom revient dans son village natal des Appalaches. N'ayant nulle part où aller, il s'installe dans sa vieille caravane près de la maison de sa mère, April, qui lutte elle aussi contre d'anciens démons. Là, il renoue avec son meilleur ami, Aiden McCall. Après la mort accidentelle de leur dealer, Thad et Aiden se retrouvent soudain avec une quantité de drogue et d'argent inespérée. Cadeau de Dieu ou du diable ?

  • Caroline du Nord. Dans cette région perdue des Appalaches, McNeely est un nom qui ne laisse pas indifférent, un nom qui fait peur, qui fait baisser les yeux. Plus qu'un nom, c'est une malédiction pour Jacob, dix-huit ans, fils de Charles McNeely, baron de la drogue local, narcissique, violent et impitoyable. Amoureux de son amie d'enfance, Maggie, Jacob n'a guère l'occasion de se montrer romantique. Il est le dauphin, il doit se faire craindre et respecter. Après un passage à tabac qui tourne mal, Jacob se trouve face à un dilemme : doit-il prendre ses responsabilités et payer afin d'aller vers la lumière, ou bien s'enfoncer dans les ténèbres en suivant la voie paternelle ?

  • Anglais The Line That Held Us

    David Joy

    An accidental death, and the cover-up that follows, sparks a dark series of events that reverberates through the lives of four people who will never be the same again. When Darl Moody went hunting after a monster buck, a kill that could make the difference between meat for the winter and an empty freezer, he never expected he'd accidentally shoot a man digging ginseng. Worse yet, he's killed a Brewer, a family notorious for vengeance and violence. With nowhere to turn, Darl calls on the help of the only man he knows will answer, his best friend, Calvin Hooper. But when Dwayne Brewer comes looking for his missing brother and stumbles onto a blood trail leading straight back to Darl and Calvin--and to Calvin's girlfriend, Angie--a nightmare of revenge rips apart their world. A story of friendship and family, The Line That Held Us is a tale balanced between destruction and redemption, where the only hope is to hold on tight, clenching those you love. From a writer whose stories are "like a pull from a bottle of Appalachian moonshine: smooth and elegant with a punch in the gut that lingers a while after you're done" ( Garden & Gun ), Joy's book is another masterwork of Southern noir.

  • #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Everybody tells you to live for a cause larger than yourself, but how exactly do you do it? The author of The Road to Character explores what it takes to lead a meaningful life in a self-centered world. Deeply moving, frequently eloquent and extraordinarily incisive.-- The Washington Post Every so often, you meet people who radiate joy--who seem to know why they were put on this earth, who glow with a kind of inner light. Life, for these people, has often followed what we might think of as a two-mountain shape. They get out of school, they start a career, and they begin climbing the mountain they thought they were meant to climb. Their goals on this first mountain are the ones our culture endorses: to be a success, to make your mark, to experience personal happiness. But when they get to the top of that mountain, something happens. They look around and find the view . . . unsatisfying. They realize: This wasnt my mountain after all. Theres another, bigger mountain out there that is actually my mountain. And so they embark on a new journey. On the second mountain, life moves from self-centered to other-centered. They want the things that are truly worth wanting, not the things other people tell them to want. They embrace a life of interdependence, not independence. They surrender to a life of commitment. In The Second Mountain, David Brooks explores the four commitments that define a life of meaning and purpose: to a spouse and family, to a vocation, to a philosophy or faith, and to a community. Our personal fulfillment depends on how well we choose and execute these commitments. Brooks looks at a range of people who have lived joyous, committed lives, and who have embraced the necessity and beauty of dependence. He gathers their wisdom on how to choose a partner, how to pick a vocation, how to live out a philosophy, and how we can begin to integrate our commitments into one overriding purpose. In short, this book is meant to help us all lead more meaningful lives. But its also a provocative social commentary. We live in a society, Brooks argues, that celebrates freedom, that tells us to be true to ourselves, at the expense of surrendering to a cause, rooting ourselves in a neighborhood, binding ourselves to others by social solidarity and love. We have taken individualism to the extreme--and in the process we have torn the social fabric in a thousand different ways. The path to repair is through making deeper commitments. In The Second Mountain, Brooks shows what can happen when we put commitment-making at the center of our lives.

This isn't your ordinary coming-of-age novel, but with his bone-cutting insights into these men and the region that bred them, Joy makes it an extraordinarily intimate experience.'Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review"Lyrical, propulsive, dark and compelling.

The area surrounding Cashiers, North Carolina, is home to people of all kinds, but the world that Jacob McNeely lives in is crueler than most. His father runs a methodically organized meth ring, with local authorities on the dime to turn a blind eye to his dealings. Having dropped out of high school and cut himself off from his peers, Jacob has been working for this father for years, all on the promise that his payday will come eventually. The only joy he finds comes from reuniting with Maggie, his first love, and a girl clearly bound for bigger and better things than their hardscrabble town. Jacob has always been resigned to play the cards that were dealt him, but when a fatal mistake changes everything, he's faced with a choice: stay and appease his father, or leave the mountains with the girl he loves.

  • Critically acclaimed author David Joy, whose debut, Where All Light Tends to Go, was hailed as “a savagely moving novel that will likely become an important addition to the great body of Southern literature” (The Huffington Post), returns to the mountains of North Carolina with a powerful story about the inescapable weight of the past.
    A combat veteran returned from war, Thad Broom can’t leave the hardened world of Afghanistan behind, nor can he forgive himself for what he saw there. His mother, April, is haunted by her own demons, a secret trauma she has carried for years. Between them is Aiden McCall, loyal to both but unable to hold them together. Connected by bonds of circumstance and duty, friendship and love, these three lives are blown apart when Aiden and Thad witness the accidental death of their drug dealer and a riot of dope and cash drops in their laps. On a meth-fueled journey to nowhere, they will either find the grit to overcome the darkness or be consumed by it.

  • Anglais Helium Ion Microscopy

    David C. Joy

    • Springer
    • 13 Septembre 2013

    Helium Ion Microscopy: Principles and Applications describes the theory and discusses the practical details of why scanning microscopes using beams of light ions - such as the Helium Ion Microscope (HIM) - are destined to become the imaging tools of choice for the 21st century. Topics covered include the principles, operation, and performance of the Gaseous Field Ion Source (GFIS), and a comparison of the optics of ion and electron beam microscopes including their operating conditions, resolution, and signal-to-noise performance. The physical principles of Ion-Induced Secondary Electron (iSE) generation by ions are discussed, and an extensive database of iSE yields for many elements and compounds as a function of incident ion species and its energy is included. Beam damage and charging are frequently outcomes of ion beam irradiation, and techniques to minimize such problems are presented. In addition to imaging, ions beams can be used for the controlled deposition, or removal, of selected materials with nanometer precision. The techniques and conditions required for nanofabrication are discussed and demonstrated. Finally, the problem of performing chemical microanalysis with ion beams is considered. Low energy ions cannot generate X-ray emissions, so alternative techniques such as Rutherford Backscatter Imaging (RBI) or Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (SIMS) are examined.

  • OEuvre monumentale, parue de 1932 à 1995, voici donc Le Dictionnaire de Spiritualité enfin publié intégralement de A jusqu'à Z, avec un index particulièrement utile. A beaucoup de points de vue, c'était un défi. Le pari a été tenu. On peut même dire que les fruits dépassent le projet primitif, car très vite les perspectives du début ont été amplifiées et précisées. Dans les années 30, lancer l'idée et assurer la réalisation d'un tel dictionnaire pouvait paraître, face au bloc solide du dogme catholique, une entreprise marginale concernant les techniques de prière, les états mystiques et les divers phénomènes qui parfois les accompagnent... A cette époque, la réflexion chrétienne, encadrée et limitée par une théologie dogmatique, en grande partie déductive et obligatoire, avait besoin d'un nouveau souffle. Voici que la spiritualité, fondée en même temps sur l'expérience et sur la liberté qui président à l'invention des divers chemins conduisant à Dieu, renouvelait toutes les questions... Cette révolution tranquille s'est faite lentement, sans bruit, sans excès. A sa place, avec d'autres éléments similaires, elle a préparé l'éclosion irrésistible de Vatican II ; et aujourd'hui, patiemment, elle aide à bien comprendre l'originalité et le dynamisme de ce concile... Des milliers de collaborateurs, provenant du monde entier et de tous les horizons, ont contribué à faire de ce Dictionnaire ce qu'il est : particulièrement utile à tous ceux qui veulent mieux connaître les auteurs spirituels de divers pays, suivre l'évolution des mentalités, des institutions, des grandes notions fondamentales... et plein d'intérêt pour tous les curieux. Ainsi s'est-il répandu à travers le monde entier et dans tous les milieux.

  • L'histoire sombre, déchirante et sauvage d'un jeune homme en quête de rédemption.Caroline du Nord. Dans cette région perdue des Appalaches, McNeely est un nom qui fait peur, un nom qui fait baisser les yeux. Plus qu'un nom, c'est presque une malédiction pour Jacob, dix-huit ans, fils de Charly McNeely, baron de la drogue local, narcissique, violent et impitoyable. Amoureux de son amie d'enfance, Maggie Jenkins, Jacob préfère garder ses distances. Il est le dauphin, il doit se faire craindre et respecter, régler les affaires de son père de la façon la plus expéditive qui soit. Après un passage à tabac qui tourne mal, Jacob se trouve confronté à un dilemme : doit-il prendre ses responsabilités et payer pour ses actes ou bien suivre la voie paternelle ? Alors que le filet judiciaire se resserre autour de lui, Jacob a encore l'espoir de sauver son âme pour mener une vie normale avec Maggie. Mais cela ne pourra se faire sans qu'il affronte son père, bien décidé à le retenir près de lui.
    Avec ce premier roman aussi sombre que déchirant, qui évoque tout autant la série
    Top of the Lake que
    Seul le silence de R.J. Ellory, David Joy nous conte l'histoire d'un jeune homme qui tente par tous les moyens d'échapper à l'héritage de la violence et aux péchés de sa famille. Cette quête inoubliable de rédemption, où les frontières entre le bien et le mal, la vie et la mort sont aussi fragiles qu'invisibles, est transcendée par la puissance de l'écriture. C'est en effet dans une prose à vif, lyrique et haletante que David Joy restitue l'infinie complexité des sentiments de son héros dans ce livre à la beauté désespérée, aux allures de chef-d'oeuvre.
