Guy De Maupassant

 

Translation - Epimeter: Vasiliki Tsiganou

 

The north wind was blowing furiously, dragging from the sky huge winter clouds, black and dense, that were pouring heavy rains on the ground. The wild like wild sea roared and beat hard on the shore, throwing huge waves, which with slow motion foamed and exploded like bursts of machine gun. They rhythmically resumed one after the other, high like the mountains, scattering in the air, under the steep cliffs, the white foam of their peaks like an angry outburst of monsters…

 

The "Stories of Day and Night" by Guy de Maupassant (1850-1893), the leading exponent of French naturalism, takes us to the steep shores of Normandy, to the sweet light of the French South, but also to the wild and harsh Corsica: Love , tenderness, desires, but also murder of parents, drunks, cowardly bourgeois, cunning villagers, images from a world full of contrasts, where the author captures the flow of life, day and night, in a continuum, without end.

Gloria chose this day in June to leave. She takes her daughters from school and starts with them without warning for a long journey. The three of them leave behind the shores of the Mediterranean to the north, the Alsatian house in the forest of Kaiserheim in which Gloria, as a child, spent her vacation. Why this sudden lethargy? What threat does she wants to escape from? To find out, we must go back to the troubled waters of the past, meet Giovannangeli, who took her under his protection when her father died, lift the veil around the death of Samuel, the father of her children -where was Gloria that night? - and to finally understand what role lawyer Santini may have played in this whole story.

To what extent can we protect our children? In this novel, with undiminished intensity, Véronique Ovaldé directs the fascinating character of a mother whose concern for the world is transformed into relentless composure in order to face it.

In Islam, it is permissible for a man who travels to marry for a fixed duration, so as not to be tempted to engage in prostitution. They call it “the happy marriage”.

 

In such circumstances Amir, a wealthy Fès trader, temporarily marries Nabu, a Fulani from Dakar where he comes every year to procure goods. However, Amir discovers that he has fallen in love with Nabu and proposes to take her with him to Fès. Nabu accepts, becomes his second wife and shortly afterwards gives birth to twin boys. One white, the other black. From then on she will be confronted with the first white wife's dreadful jealousy and the racism of everyday life.

 

A few decades later, twins, adults, have taken very different paths. White is fully integrated. Black has a lot more trouble in his life and fails to offer his son, Salim, a better future. Now it's Salim's turn to become a victim of the colour of his skin.

Stephani Barron 

 

Translation: Anna Papastavrou 

 

Wealthy, privileged, and fiercely independent New Yorker Jennie Jerome took Victorian England by storm when she landed on its shores. As Lady Randolph Churchill, she gave birth to a man who defined the twentieth century: her son Winston. But Jennie—reared in the luxury of Gilded Age Newport and the Paris of the Second Empire—lived an outrageously modern life all her own, filled with controversy, passion, tragedy, and triumph.

 

Artistically gifted and politically shrewd, she shapes her husband’s rise in Parliament and her young son’s difficult passage through boyhood. But as the family’s influence soars, scandals explode and tragedy befalls the Churchills. Jennie is inescapably drawn to the brilliant and seductive Count Charles Kinsky. Their affair only intensifies as Randolph Churchill’s sanity frays, and Jennie—a woman whose every move on the public stage is judged—must walk a tightrope between duty and desire. Forced to decide where her heart truly belongs, Jennie risks everything—even her son—and disrupts lives, including her own, on both sides of the Atlantic.

 

Breathing new life into Jennie’s legacy and the glittering world over which she reigned, That Churchill Woman paints a portrait of the difficult—and sometimes impossible—balance among love, freedom, and obligation, while capturing the spirit of an unforgettable woman, one who altered the course of history.
