Cyrano de Bergerac
الحالة: جيدة / عن الكتاب: Aimable jeune homme et auteur à demi-succès patronné par Sarah Bernhardt, Rostand devient du jour au lendemain avec Cyrano de Bergerac un héros national, sur-le-champ décoré de la Légion d'honneur.

Il faut sans doute en rabattre un peu, mais un peu seulement : bien que né dans le sérail de la plus bourgeoise des bourgeoisies, Cyrano demeure la plus grande réussite de théâtre populaire à ce jour connue et le dernier acte, avec son couvent et ses feuilles mortes, est aussi émouvant qu'un finale de Verdi.

Popular Egyptian Cinema
الحالة: جيدة / عن الكتاب: Egypt’s popular cinema viewed through a film scholar’s lens In this groundbreaking work, film scholar Viola Shafik examines popular and commercial movies from Egypt’s film industry, including a number of the biggest box-office hits widely distributed in Egypt and the Arab world. Turning a critical eye on a major player in Egyptian cultural life, Shafik examines these films against the backdrop of the country’s overall socio-political development, from the emergence of the film industry in the 1930s, through the Nasser and Sadat eras, up to the era of globalization. In unearthing the largely contradictory meanings conveyed by different films, Popular Egyptian Cinema examines a broad array of themes, from gender relations to feminism, Islamism and popular ideas about sexuality and morality. Focusing on representations of religious and ethnic minorities—primarily Copts, Jews, and Nubians—Shafik draws out issues such as the formation of the Egyptian nation, cinematic stereotyping, and political and social taboos. Shafik also considers pivotal genres, such as melodrama, realism, and action film, in relation to public debates over highbrow and lowbrow culture and in light of local and international film criticism.

In all Gardner has fifty-four novels to his credit, including Maestro, which was the New York Times book of the year. He was also invited by Ian Fleming’s literary copyright holders to write a series of continuation James Bond novels, which proved to be so successful that instead of the contracted three books he went on to publish some fourteen titles, including Licence Renewed and Icebreaker. Having lived in the Republic of Ireland, the United States and the UK, John Gardner sadly died in August of 2007 having just completed his third novel in the Moriarty trilogy, Conan Doyle’s eponymous villain of the Sherlock Holmes series.

Lark and Termite is set during the 1950s in West Virginia and Korea. It is a story of the power of loss and love, the echoing ramifications of war, family secrets, dreams and ghosts, and the unseen, almost magical bonds that unite and sustain us.
