Walter Brown went alone to the woodland pond on a July afternoon in 1934. He saw his girl swimming there. She wasn't his girl then, but he knew she would be. He was nineteen when he knew. He watched her floating and saw how white her skin was in the green water, her belly, her breasts, her pond-tangled hair. A naked girl. Then she turned over like an otter and dived down. She did not come up again. Two boys... Sean Matthews stands at the bottom of George's Hill, more or less the very centre of the housing estate, with his hands on his hips. School is finished for the summer and last night, 20 July 1969, two men landed on the moon. There is a notice announcing it in the classroom. Jhe spaesmen hav landid in Jhe see ov trankwility. Funetic words, as if it were a huge laugh; but phonetics is not supposed to be funny. It is important and clever. It is a nationwide experiment, government-sanctioned. Sean and his friends are the guinea pigs. Wur. ...growing up in the same village thirty-five years apart. When Sean Matthews unknowingly witnesses an event he cannot bear to remember, his life is changed forever.

House of cards by Paul Seed( Visual )

1 edition published in 2015 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Après la chutte de Margaret Thatcher, la déception est de taille pour le conservateur Francis Urquart : aucun poste de ministre ne lui est confié au sein du nouveau gouvernement. Manipulateur hors pair, il va tout mettre en oeuvre pour conquérir le poste si convoité de Premier Ministre...". Chef d'oeuvre de la télévision britannique, "House of cards" est la référence des séries sur le monde politique qui inspira "A la Maison blanche", "Borgen" et bien sûr son remake américain créé par David Fincher. Ecrit par Andrew Davies (Orgueil & Préjugés), elle met ens cène un incroyable personnage machiavélique magistralement interprété par Ian Richardson (Brazil, Dark city)." (Source : jaquette)
