    Les Saamaka - environ 90 000 personnes - vivent dans une forêt tropicale dense de l'intérieur de la République du Suriname, située au nord-est du continent sud-américain et en Guyane française. Leurs ancêtres faisaient partie de ces Africains qui furent vendus en esclavage à la fin du XVIIe siècle et au début du XVIIIe pour travailler dans les plantations de canne, de café et les exploitations forestières. Ils ne tardèrent pas à s'échapper pour rejoindre, individuellement, en petits groupes, ou encore lors de grandes rébellions collectives, la forêt équatoriale où ils se livrèrent à une guerre de libération qui devait durer presque un siècle. En 1762, cent ans avant l'émancipation générale des esclaves du Suriname, ils conquirent leur liberté.

    /> Cet ouvrage fondateur pour les Marrons saamaka relate leur lutte pour la liberté durant plus d'un siècle. Aventure éditoriale unique, Fesiten est le premier livre jamais paru en saramaccan. Il est dédié à un peuple à la tradition unique de résistance à l'esclavage.

    Richard Price

    Ray Mitchell is lying in a hospital bed, drifting in and out of consciousness, his head a bloody mess of swabs and bandages. He knows who did it, but he's not saying. He had been a successful and wealthy TV scriptwriter, but returned to the mean streets of Dempsey, New Jersey, in order to give something back to the community where he grew up.

    ,

    By the co-writer of the HBO miniseries The Night Of Richard Price's New York Times bestseller, The Whites , is an electrifying tale of a New York City police detective under siege-by an unsolved murder, by his own dark past, and by a violent stalker seeking revenge. Back in the run-and-gun days of the mid-1990s, when a young Billy Graves worked in the South Bronx as part of an aggressive anti-crime unit known as the Wild Geese, he made headlines by accidentally shooting a ten-year-old boy while struggling with an angel-dusted berserker on a crowded street. Branded as a loose cannon by his higher-ups, Billy spent years enduring one dead-end posting after another. Now in his early forties, he has somehow survived and become a sergeant in Manhattan Night Watch, a small team of detectives charged with responding to all post-midnight felonies from Wall Street to Harlem. Mostly, his unit acts as little more than a set-up crew for the incoming shift, but after years in police purgatory, Billy is content simply to do his job. Then comes a call that changes everything: Night Watch is summoned to the four a.m. fatal slashing of a man in Penn Station, and this time Billy's investigation moves beyond the usual handoff to the day tour. And when he discovers that the victim was once a suspect in the unsolved murder of a twelve-year-old boy-a savage case with connections to the former members of the Wild Geese-the bad old days are back in Billy's life with a vengeance, tearing apart enduring friendships forged in the urban trenches and even threatening the safety of his family. Razor-sharp and propulsively written, The Whites introduces Harry Brandt--a new master of American crime fiction.
