Catel et Bocquet retracent le destin de la fascinante Joséphine Baker dans un magnifique roman (bio)graphique tout en noir et blanc. En 500 pages, les auteurs nous dévoilent toutes les facettes de cette femme emplie de convictions : muse de nombreux artistes, militante contre la ségrégation raciale, agent du contre-espionnage de la France Libre, mère adoptive d’une douzaine d’enfants venus d’horizons divers… elle était décidément bien plus qu’une danseuse de cabaret affublée d’une ceinture de bananes...
Hugh Johnson is the world's favourite writer on wine, thanks to his rare talent for bringing to life such a complicated subject.
Hugh Johnson's Pocket Wine Book was first published in 1977 and now sells over 400,000 copies a year. In all, over six million copies have been sold around the world, more than any other wine book in history. In this special edition for the year 2001, Hugh Johnson offers us unique personal insights into his favourite wines, famous and obscure, appraises vintages old and new and predicts which wines to watch in the new millennium.
With the publication of his first book, Wine, Hugh established himself at the age of 27 as the most refreshing and authoritative voice on the subject. More than 30 years later, his reputation as the pre-eminent wine writer in the world continues to be unchallenged. During the past three decades he has repeatedly written books that have become landmarks in the subject, including his classic World Atlas of Wine, now in its fourth edition, his Wine Companion and the Story of Wine.
