BoydenThree day road
Joseph BOYDEN (Canada)
Niska is reunited with her nephew, Xavier, after he returns from the horrors of the First World War. As she slowly paddles her canoe on the 3-day journey to take him home, traveling through the stark but stunning landscape of Northern Canada, their respective stories emerge.


This new collection includes an introduction (historical, social and/or cultural context), a biography off the author, a bibliography, some activities and a CD.

Detective stories
Cideb (Black cat. Reading Classics)
These stories by Arthur Conan Doyle, R. Austin Freeman, Edgar Wallace, Edmund Crispen and Geoffrey Bush, Margery Allingham and Julian Symons focus on the development of the detective genre : from the rationality of the Victorian investigator to the modern theme of the criminal as anti-hero.

Heart of darkness
Cideb (Black cat. Reading Classics)
Conrad’s spiritual journey into darkest Africa is based on his own experience in the Congo at the end of the 19th century. Marlow, the narrator, is torn between revulsion for and attraction towards colonialism but is driven onwards by an overwhelming desire to meet the mysterious Kurtz.

Hard Times
Cideb (Black cat. Reading Classics)
Unusually for Dickens, "Hard Times" is set, not in London, but in the imaginary mid-Victorian Northern industrial town of Coketown with its blackened factories, downtrodden workers and polluted environment. This is the soulless domain of the strict utilitarian Thomas Gradgrind and the heartless factory owner Josiah Bounderby. However human joy is not excluded thanks to ’Mr Sleary’s Horse-Riding’ circus, a gin-soaked and hilarious troupe of open-hearted and affectionate people who act as an antidote to all the drudgery and misery endured by the ordinary citizens of Coketown.

The Great Gatsby
Francis Scott FITZGERALD
Cideb (Black cat. Reading Classics)
The mythical figure of Jay Gatsby haunts this celebrated depiction of the Jazz Age. A profound commentary on the American Dream, Fitzgerald’s masterpiece examines the decay of idealism, innocence and moral value in the decade following World War One. This edition also includes a selection of critical extracts on The Great Gatsby.

A Passage to India
Edward Morgan FORSTER
Cideb (Black cat. Reading Classics)
One of the great classics of English modernism. Set in British India, it tells the story of how personal relationships, political realities and cosmic mysteries all meet in the infamous Marabar Caves, with an alleged ‘encounter’ between the Indian Dr Aziz and Adela Quested, newly arrived from England.
