Tour de Force: A Novel
tour de force - Wiktionary
The wind has brought Vianne Rocher back to Lansquenet-sous-Tannes the very town that once rejected her, and eldest daughter Anouk has moved to Paris with her boyfriend. When local florist Narcisse dies he leaves year-old Rosette — Vianne's youngest child — the woodland opposite his home, no-one understands why.
Will the reason be uncovered by priest Francis Reynaud, in whom Narcisse has entrusted his final written confession? Secrets bristle with electric sparks as Narcisse's daughter fights for the land, and lets out the shop to the mysterious Morgane Dubois whose front door now holds the same allure as Vianne's chocolate shop did all those years ago. Harris has both brought the magical tale of Vianne full circle, and started a whole new path for the sweet Rosette.
Sabrina by Nick Drnaso review: a tour-de-force graphic novel
Following bestsellers The Rosie Project and sequel The Rosie Effect, this novel sees the return of the inimitable Don and his partner Rosie as they navigate parenthood, marriage and careers. Don's "life-contentment graph" is nosediving after an oyster-shucking injury, an unfortunate video that leaves his career on the rocks and his son, Hudson, is showing signs of suspected autism. In true Don style, he decides to open a cocktail bar as a unique solution to his work-life woes.
The book offers a touching and intelligent insight into autism, while Don's hilarious escapades keep the laughs coming. THERE have been plenty of previous attempts to explain to how successful plots and tropes work, but Storr underpins his findings on fiction with facts from research conducted by neuroscientists and psychologists.
Based on a course he teaches, he explains that the brain itself is the ultimate storyteller and produces some fascinating examples of how humans have used stories to make sense of the world. The psychology behind why we tell stories, from ancient campfire myths on, and later, the revelations about underlying personality traits that drive characters are fascinating.

But it's scientific proof, like brain scans which show heightened neural activity around metaphors, that really hit home, as does evidence that our eyes respond as if the story we are reading is really happening. There are times when you wish Storr could follow some of his own tips to make some sections more palatable, but overall, this is a must-read for would-be writers.
I'M NOT usually someone who's drawn to reading non-fiction. I've never owned pets, either. Her activism recurs in Zipporah, illegally assisting refugee immigration. Marion, less political, does fulfil her artistic dream, while accepting that the activist gene has been inherited by her sons. What results is a novel that adroitly eludes the many pitfalls presented by its subject matter.
Esther in the Word for Word Bible Comic: Another tour-de-force
It presents a panorama of the Jewish diaspora, as represented in the lives of three resourceful women. Dowse interweaves between her heroines and their eras effortlessly.
Perhaps the most interesting formal device is its delayed release of information, and some surprising elisions, such as the gap between The Holocaust is outside the experience of Dowse's characters — here her focus is on Clara and Stalin's terror. Like a heavy pack we could simply shrug off once we had come here. Now I see that there is nothing so onerous as a future.
The work might be Dowse's best, and certainly it represents a tour de force. Like the crane on the cover, the book soars.
