    Ernest Hemingway était un homme à femmes. Mais il ne se contentait pas d'enchaîner les histoires. Ses maîtresses, il en a fait des Mrs Hemingway. Ainsi la généreuse Hadley Richardson a-t-elle été remplacée par la très mondaine Pauline Pfeiffer, et l'intrépide Martha Gellhorn par la dévouée Mary Welsh, au fil d'un scénario qui ne variait que de quelques lignes : la passion initiale, les fêtes, l'orgueil de hisser son couple sur le devant de la scène, puis les démons, les noires pensées dont chacune de ses femmes espérait le sauver.
    Naomi Wood se penche sur la figure d'un colosse aux pieds d'argile, et redonne la voix à celles qui ont sacrifié un peu d'elles-mêmes pour en ériger le mythe.

    The Paris Wife was only the beginning of the story . . .
    A New York Times Book Review Editor's Choice
    A Richard & Judy UK Pick
    Paula McLain’s New York Times–bestselling novel piqued readers’ interest about Ernest Hemingway’s romantic life. But Hadley was only one of four women married, in turn, to the legendary writer. Just as T.C. Boyle’s bestseller The Women completed the picture begun by Nancy Horan’s Loving Frank, Naomi Wood’s Mrs. Hemingway tells the story of how it was to love, and be loved by, the most famous and dashing writer of his generation. Hadley, Pauline, Martha and Mary: each Mrs. Hemingway thought their love would last forever; each one was wrong.
    Told in four parts and based on real love letters and telegrams, Mrs. Hemingway reveals the explosive love triangles that wrecked each of Hemingway's marriages. Spanning 1920s bohemian Paris through 1960s Cold War America, populated with members of the fabled "Lost Generation," Mrs. Heminway is a riveting tale of passion, love, and heartbreak.
    From the Trade Paperback edition.

    If you were forced to live with faith, or without, which would you choose? England. 1986. The Church controls the country, and all members of the Secular Movement have been expelled to the Island. On the Island, religion is outlawed. A gang of boys patrols the community, searching for signs of faith, and punishing any believers. When an English girl arrives – intent on finding her mother who disappeared, mysteriously, ten years ago – she is swept up in the dangerous games of the gang. But while one boy falls in love with her, the other wants revenge for the wrongs of the past, and, as the violence escalates, the English girl becomes their pawn. The Godless Boys is a book about faith, and life without faith; about love, and its absence. But above all, it's about power, and how dangerous it can be to stand out from the crowd. Both violent and tender, it’s a remarkable debut, and clearly marks Naomi Wood as a name to note.
