Do you remember your first time? People tend to remember the moment they first heard The Rush Limbaugh Show on the radio. For Zev Chafets, it was in a car in Detroit, driving down Woodward Avenue. Limbaugh's braggadocio, the outrageous satire, the slaughtering of liberal sacred cows performed with the verve of a rock-n-roll DJ-it seemed fresh, funny and completely subversive. "They're never going to let this guy stay on the air," he thought. Almost two decades later Chafets met Rush for the first time, at Limbaugh's rarely visited "Southern Command." They spent hours together talking on the record about politics, sports, music, show business, religion and modern American history. Rush opened his home and his world, introducing Chafets to his family, closest friends, even his psychologist. The result was an acclaimed cover-story profile of Limbaugh in The New York Times Magazine. But there was much more to say, especially after Limbaugh became Public Enemy Number One of the Obama Administration. At first Limbaugh resisted the idea of a full-length portrait, but he eventually invited Chafets back to Florida and exchanged more than a hundred emails full of his personal history, thoughts, fears and ambitions. What has emerged is an uniquely personal look at the man who is not only the most popular voice on the radio, but the leader of the conservative movement and one of the most influential figures in the Republican Party. While Limbaugh's public persona is instantly recognizable, his background and private life are often misunderstood. Even devoted Dittoheads will find there's a lot they don't know about the self-described "harm little fuzzball" who has, over the years, taken on the giants of the mainstream media and the Democratic Party-from Bill and Hillary Clinton to Barack Obama-with "half his brain tied behind his back, just to make it fair." Chafets paints a compelling portrait of Limbaugh as a master entertainer, a public intellectual, a political force, and a fascinating man.

While rescuers frantically searched for survivors in the World Trade Center attacks, Jack Taylor was searching, too. His life-long journey to find one woman who would love him unconditionally was somewhere among the rubble.
This is an epic journey along the road traveled and littered by the bones of other hope romantics who failed to find perfect love. Jack discovers it is not what you find at the end of the journey but the journey itself. The story of Jack Taylor begins in his childhood as he sets off on a life-long journey to find a lover who will accept him for all that he is and is not. Jack does not realize he has been on such a journey until his mother dies. She dies only hours after he has made plans to move home and take care of her. Following her death, Jack is forced to revisit his childhood bitterness for manipulating women. By now, he had perfected his malice. Frustrated at not understanding his spite, he seeks revenge against the opposite sex.
In the process, his first marriage falls apart and he turns his back on the world.
By accident, the power of a youthful first love resurfaces and begins to soften his heart. Jack becomes entangled in the doomed relationship. In retreat, Jack almost misses the love affair he longed for, only to have it stolen from him by unchangeable circumstances.
Deciding to abandon his convictions to find unconditional love, Jack settles for a larger endeavor - trying to instill the impenitent search for inner peace in his young daughter. A Journey Through Pines is a pilgrimage all humans pursue, yet one that leaves them unsure of what they have found until faced with losing it along the way. Jack Taylor was a risk taker unafraid of falling from grace in the name of leaving behind an ancestral message of love.
Une jeune femme, professeure de français dans un établissement pour écolières juives orthodoxes, découvre tout au long de l'année scolaire un monde à part, enveloppé de mystère et d'interdits, mais séduisant et rassurant. Au fil des conversations chuchotées avec les jeunes élèves, dans un franglais parsemé de yiddish, dans l'apprivoisement, dans la surprise et dans l'inconfort de la différence, se détache alors le visage d'une enfant boudeuse, rêveuse, fragile prénommée Hadassa. Le choc des cultures peut-il être un choc amoureux? Oui, puisque se tisse en parallèle une histoire d'amour entre un jeune épicier récemment immigré de Pologne et une Juive mariée, effrayée par la violence de ses sentiments. C'est le prix de la liberté qui est ici remis en question -- une liberté dont nous ne savons parfois plus que faire. Drôle et émouvant, vif et nostalgique, Hadassa est le roman du respect et de l'ouverture. Myriam Beaudoin confronte en douceur les valeurs de l'Occident et celles d'une culture millénaire qui fait tout pour préserver les siennes, y compris se refermer sur elle-même.
Le héros anonyme découvre la réalité des camps de concentration, filtrée avec son souvenir d'un passé meilleur. L'éveil lui fait mal et le conduit à un apprentissage rapide : la dureté de la situation et l'instinct de survie l'obligent à devenir responsable.
