The Little Prince is a work in French language, the most famous by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. Published in 1943 in New York simultaneously in English and French, it’s a poetic and philosophical tale in the guise of a children's story. It has simple and uncluttered language, because it is intended to be understood by children, and, in fact, for the narrator, it is the preferred vehicle of a symbolic conception of life. Each chapter talks about a meeting of the little prince who leaves him perplexed about the absurd behavior of grown-ups. Each of these meetings can be read as an allegory. The watercolor paintings are part of the text and participate in this purity of language: simplicity and deepness are the key qualities of the work. You can read an invitation from the author to find the child in yourself, because all grown-ups were first children (but few of them remember). The book is dedicated to Léon Werth, but when he was a little boy.

From the acclaimed author of the international sensation Library of the Dead comes a nail-biting new thriller that spans the globe and reaches back through the centuries in a dangerous, breathless search for the answer to one of history’s most provocative and intriguing questions: Does the Holy Grail exist? Fifteenth-century England. For centuries, rulers, clerics, scholars and adventurers have searched in vain for the sacred cup from which Christ drank at the Last Supper. Locked up in a cold, damp cell, the knight Thomas Malory is despondent: he has failed in his quest to recover the Grail. He decides to write his famed work Le Morte D’Arthur, hiding within his tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table an enormous secret: the key to finding the Grail. England, present day. Arthur Malory, a scientist and amateur archaeologist, has just seen his best friend die at the hands of a ruthless murderer. It all started with a phone call about a potential sensational discovery about their shared passion: the Holy Grail. And now the killers are after Arthur . . . Thrust into a life-or-death quest to find the precious artifact, Arthur must follow a chain of clues left by his illustrious ancestor, Thomas Malory. His quest spans the centuries and takes him to King Arthur’s Cornwall, Renaissance England, the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, a modern physics lab in Modane, France, and ultimately, inevitably, to Jerusalem and the legendary tomb of Christ. The Resurrection Maker effortlessly blends history, science, and explosive questions in a page-turning adventure that takes us to the heart of mysterious forces dating to the very origin of the universe. Readers will be treated to smarts, thrills, and nonstop entertainment in this irresistible treasure hunt of a story, the next blockbuster from the writer who has been called “the Indiana Jones of literature.” PRAISE FOR GLENN COOPER'S LIBRARY OF THE DEAD: “Both incandescent and explosive. A seamless blend of modern-day thriller and historical mystery with an ending that left me breathless. A debut not to be missed.” —JAMES ROLLINS “Prepare to be enthralled by this epic thriller.
