Nora's life has been going from bad to worse. Then at the stroke of midnight on her last day on earth she finds herself transported to a library. There she is given the chance to undo her regrets and try out each of the other lives she might have lived. Which raises the ultimate question: with infinite choices, what is the best way to live?
À trente-cinq ans, Nora Seeds a l'impression d'avoir tout raté. Lorsqu'elle se retrouve un soir dans la mystérieuse Bibliothèque de Minuit, c'est sa dernière chance de reprendre en main son destin. Si elle avait fait d'autres choix, que se serait-il passé ?
Avec l'aide d'une amie bibliophile, elle n'a qu'à prendre des livres dans les rayonnages, tourner les pages et corriger ses erreurs pour inventer la vie parfaite. Pourtant, les choses ne se déroulent pas comme elle l'imaginait.
Avant que minuit sonne, pourra-t-elle répondre à l'énigme la plus importante : qu'est-ce qu'une vie heureuse ? « Une lecture étonnante, pleine de chaleur et d'humour, et un éloge vibrant du pouvoir qu'ont les livres de changer le cours de nos vies. »Sunday Times

WINNER OF THE 2017 BOOKS ARE MY BAG READERS AWARD FOR POPULAR FICTION
Tom Hazard has a dangerous secret. He may look like an ordinary 41-year-old, but owing to a rare condition, he's been alive for centuries. From Elizabethan England to Jazz-Age Paris, from New York to the South Seas, Tom has seen a lot, and now craves an ordinary life.
Always changing his identity to stay alive, Tom has the perfect cover - working as a history teacher at a London comprehensive. Here he can teach the kids about wars and witch hunts as if he'd never witnessed them first-hand. He can try to tame the past that is fast catching up with him. The only thing Tom must not do is fall in love.
À 24 ans, souffrant d'anxiété et de dépression, au cours d'un séjour en Espagne, Matt Haig s'est retrouvé au bord d'une falaise, les pieds à moitié dans le vide, sur le point de se précipiter... Rester en vie... cela paraît si difficile à celles et ceux qui sont au fond de l'abîme, qui ne voient poindre aucune lueur.
Life with the Radleys: Radio 4, dinner parties with the Bishopthorpe neighbours and self-denial. Loads of self-denial. But all hell is about to break loose. When teenage daughter Clara gets attacked on the way home from a party, she and her brother Rowan finally discover why they can't sleep, can't eat a Thai salad without fear of asphyxiation and can't go outside unless they're smothered in Factor 50.
With a visit from their lethally louche Uncle Will and an increasingly suspicious police force, life in Bishopthorpe is about to change. Drastically.
OR IS THERE?
After an 'incident' one wet Friday night where Professor Andrew Martin is found walking naked through the streets of Cambridge, he is not feeling quite himself. Food sickens him. Clothes confound him. Even his loving wife and teenage son are repulsive to him. He feels lost amongst a crazy alien species and hates everyone on the planet. Everyone, that is, except Newton, and he's a dog.
What could possibly make someone change their mind about the human race. . . ?
A) Know a human?
B) Love a human?
C) Have trouble dealing with humans?
IF YOU'VE ANSWERED YES TO ANY OF THE ABOVE, THIS BOOK IS FOR YOU
Whether you are planning a high level of human interaction or just a casual visit to the planet, this user-guide to the human race will help you translate their sayings, understand exotic concepts such as 'democracy' and 'sofas', and make sense of their habits and bizarre customs.
A phrase book, a dictionary and a survival guide, this book unravels all the oddness, idiosyncrasies and wonder of the species, allowing everyone to make the most of their time on Earth.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO FEEL TRULY ALIVE?
Aged 24, Matt Haig's world caved in. He could see no way to go on living. This is the true story of how he came through crisis, triumphed over an illness that almost destroyed him and learned to live again.
A moving, funny and joyous exploration of how to live better, love better and feel more alive, Reasons to Stay Alive is more than a memoir. It is a book about making the most of your time on earth.
'I wrote this book because the oldest clichés remain the truest. Time heals. The bottom of the valley never provides the clearest view. The tunnel does have light at the end of it, even if we haven't been able to see it . . . Words, just sometimes, really can set you free.'

The world is messing with our minds.
Rates of stress and anxiety are rising. A fast, nervous planet is creating fast and nervous lives. We are more connected, yet feel more alone. And we are encouraged to worry about everything from world politics to our body mass index.
– How can we stay sane on a planet that makes us mad?
– How do we stay human in a technological world?
– How do we feel happy when we are encouraged to be anxious?
After experiencing years of anxiety and panic attacks, these questions became urgent matters of life and death for Matt Haig. And he began to look for the link between what he felt and the world around him. Notes on a Nervous Planet is a personal and vital look at how to feel happy, human and whole in the twenty-first century.
Meet the Hunter family: Adam, Kate, and their children Hal and Charlotte. And Prince, their Labrador.
Prince is an earnest young dog, striving hard to live up to the tenets of the Labrador Pact (Remain Loyal to Your Human Masters, Serve and Protect Your Family at Any Cost). Other dogs, led by the Springer Spaniels, have revolted. As things in the Hunter family begin to go badly awry – marital breakdown, rowdy teenage parties, attempted suicide – Prince’s responsibilities threaten to overwhelm him and he is forced to break the Labrador Pact and take desperate action to save his Family.
Dall’autore di Come fermare il tempo e Vita su un pianeta nervoso, una storia di devozione frizzante e originale, raccontata da un narratore d’eccezione: il labrador Prince.
Gli Hunter sono una famiglia come tante, alle prese con i problemi quotidiani di tutte le famiglie: il lavoro, i figli adolescenti, un matrimonio all’apparenza solido, i soldi che non bastano mai. Gli Hunter però non sono soli: possono contare sull’affetto e la protezione del loro cane, un labrador molto saggio che veglia su di loro e cerca di salvaguardarli in tutti i modi dalle minacce del mondo esterno e da loro stessi. E Prince userà tutte le sue armi «da cane», ma soprattutto il suo cuore, la sua saggezza e la sua devozione assoluta, che lo condurranno anche a tradire il Patto dei Labrador, pur di proteggere i suoi padroni. Decisione che gli costerà molto cara.
