21 DRESSES
All bought for special occasions, but never worn
Lindsay Jacques-Dubé
A novel about obsessive love, inspired by the life of Tyrone
Power, Hollywood star of the fifties.
A lively, candid and frank novel about the life of a modern young
woman.
Approximately 400 pages
Spring 2014
Éditions Recto-Verso
She will do whatever it takes to find the man she loves. But
does he really exist?
Constance Sinclair, a department store manager, leads a
rather gloomy life. Her father took his own life, her romantic
relationship is unsatisfactory and her life is sorely lacking
in passion and adventure. One day, she notices on a screen
at a video store the face of Tyrone Power, an American
movie star who died more than fifty years ago. Her life changes dramatically when she convinces herself that Ty is the
only man she could ever love. She devotes her time to
watching his movies and reading about him, looking for a
sign, a message he might have been able to send her. Her
research leads her to move into a mysterious building that
had belonged to the actor’s illegitimate son. The ghastly discovery she makes there sends her out of her mind and puts
her in danger.
While in therapy to get back on her feet, Constance meets a
strange young man and falls for him passionately. He bears
a disturbing resemblance to Ty...Is Constance losing her
mind for good? Will she manage to walk the fine line between
dreams and reality?

/ Fiction /
Strong points:
Incorporation of actual elements of the life and career of
Tyrone Power (1913-1958): the story of an era and the
scandalous Hollywood of the time, which will fascinate
fans of fifties movies.
Combination of love and suspense in a novel that takes
you on a journey through time and into the heroine’s
unfettered imagination.
Successful portrait of a fragile, unstable and vulnerable
woman.
Approximately 300 pages
October 2013
Éditions Recto-Verso
Stretched out on her bed, a bottle of wine in her hand,
Lindsay is contemplating her closet. Inside hang twentyone dresses. All bought for special occasions, they have
nonetheless never been worn... a little white dress, for the
beach. The shiny one, for outings with girlfriends. The red
one, for a trip to Italy that never got off the ground. A
wine-coloured silk dress with such a low neckline that it’s
hard to imagine wearing it outside her bedroom. The toosexy one bought for a sensual dance class Lindsay never
went to. Last, but not least, the always fashionable little
black dress...
Style:
Several narrative styles add depth to the writing:
Constance’s life, her personal diary, the story of Ty’s life
and that of his son, transcriptions of film excerpts.
Gilles Vilmont comes from Quebec City. Before devoting
himself to writing, he had a varied career, including acting
and directing, both on stage and in television.
A Liberal party political staffer, Lindsay lost her job when
the party was defeated in the last election. She is now left
with her twenty-one dresses, bought for cocktails, dinners
and glamorous evenings of all kinds that will not take
place... But why be down in the dumps and stay home alone
when you can go out and find all sorts of opportunities to
make heads turn? Lindsay will have more than one chance
to show off the treasures hidden in her closet...
Themes raised:
Careers.
Romantic and sexual relationships.
Friendship among women.
Concerns about weight and physical appearance.
Style:
The themes touched on are handled in a light and funny
way.
Written in the first person, the book is the lively and
inspiring story of a personal experience that on the face
of it was not that easy to deal with.
A modern novel, in the style of a blog.
Lindsay Jacques-Dubé is a single woman in her mid-twenties who sleeps with her Blackberry. Unable to parallel park,
she loves Christmas and the smell of new books. A former
Liberal political advisor, and now an unemployed workaholic,
she vents her moods in a blog. A blog that over time became
a novel.

your stupid habit of indulging in what, to flatter your enormous ego, you call thoughts. You’re always in the middle of
meditating, speculating, pondering, ruminating, straining
your mind to analyse this, that and the other, to identify features, make connections, link and separate concepts that
have nothing to do with anything! And what for? To discover

Christian Tétreault
A bright and delightful choral book written in a sensitive and exhilarating way.

Éditions de l’Homme
© Julia Marois
Thomas is a financial consultant and father. One summer
evening, out walking by himself, he meets Satya, a strange
little man who will change his life. Satya suggests they
begin a dialogue that will last several years. Its goal: to
destroy one by one the foundations on which Thomas has
built his values and teach him the secrets of success and
true happiness.
meets Bunde, the brother of one of her Burkinese patients,
her universe, her points of reference and her convictions
are turned upside down. Although attached to another man,
Julie abandons everything she has known and gives in to
her instincts in the arms of a stranger. Surrendering herself
to Africa, its heat and its deeply sensual rhythm, she agrees
to completely change the course of her life.
The last week of the month of May is the most wonderful
week of the year. Seven days to fall in love or make someone
fall in love with you; to take revenge or apologize; to meet
someone again or to forget. One hundred and sixty-eight
hours to transform the lives of three friends, those of the
women who share their lives out of love or habit and those of
still other women who become attached to them by accident.
May 2001. Summer is gradually arriving in Quebec and Émile
can barely contain his impatience. A few days from now, he
will once again meet up with the woman of his life, not seen
since high school. The only problem is that he is currently liv-
ing with Chloé, who has absolutely no idea she is about to lose
him. To deal with this delicate situation, Émile is going to take
advantage of the return of Laurent, who has been living in
Greece, to try and make his girlfriend and his best friend fall in
love. While this love triangle is taking shape, Charles, their
mutual friend, decides it’s time to take revenge for a humiliating incident he suffered as a child. But, by mistake, he vandalizes the apartment of an unknown and innocent person... As
destiny unfolds, the characters’ daily lives gradually change
and their respective worlds intersect during this crucial final
week of May.

COLLECTION “SO WHAT’S THAT GOT TO DO WITH IT?”
Aline Apostolska and Marie-Josée Mercier
The real lives of young people told like a novel and explained by a psychologist.
136 to 152 pages
March 2013
Éditions de l’Homme

YOUR MOTHER IS CRAZY
Brigitte Vaillancourt
An unstable mother, a teenage girl who wants her freedom:
an explosive cocktail of love and emotions.
280 pages
October 2013
Éditions Recto-Verso
Each book in this collection presents a problem affecting
teenagers by means of discussions among four girls:
Raphaëlle, Sarah, Jasmine and Giulia. The four close girlfriends guide us through the various volumes, where they
compare their points of view on a difficult issue, such as
love relationships, friendship, self-esteem, relationships
with authority figures, being different, etc.
The book’s original concept, combining fiction and psychological advice, opens up avenues for reflection and action to
give teenagers concrete tools to confront the difficulties
and questions in their daily lives...
This rite-of-passage novel explores the conflict-ridden relationship between a daughter and her mother.
Target audience:
Alex, a rebellious 14-year-old teenage girl, divides her time
between Niamey and Montreal. She is also profoundly torn
between a straightforward and logical father and an eccentric and unstable mother. After spending two years in Niger
with her father, Alex defies him and decides to stay in Montreal after the Christmas holidays. Yearning for freedom, she
rediscovers the city and leads an uninhibited life full of
friendship, parties, love, but also the rebellion and anger of
a girl left to her own devices. Her “crazy mother” certainly
won’t be the one to stop her!
Themes raised:
Aline Apostolska is a journalist, editor, and French writer and
historian by training. She has lived and worked in Montreal
since 1998. Her books have won many prizes, including the
prestigious Governor General’s Award.
Marie-Josée Mercier trained as a psychologist and
criminologist. She has worked as a family psychologist for
over ten years.
Strong points
The books’ concept is original, combining fiction and
psychological advice.
Dynamic and very realistic stories, with plenty of
dialogue.
Girls 16 to 21
The mother-daughter relationship.
Adolescence and the complex emotions it involves.
The search for identity.
The first romantic and sexual relationships.
Drug use.
Style:
A partly autobiographical story that is both moving and
fascinating.
Alex’s emotions are described with sincerity and realism.
FORGET HIM, MARJO!
For Marjo, it’s H-O-R-R-I-B-L-E. Not only has she been suffering from heartache since her onenight stand with Kevin, she’s also begun to receive humiliating texts in the middle of math
class...Could she have been so wrong about Kevin’s intentions? Was it a mistake to believe in
true love? Is it true you can’t trust a guy? Luckily, she has girlfriends she can talk about her
feelings with!
As she experiences its joys and sorrows, Alex will feel the
after-effects of too much freedom, where sometimes love
is not enough.
Brigitte Vaillancourt was born in Africa, where she has also
lived. She has a masters in political science, a degree that
was intended to lead her into international work, preferably
in Africa. In the end, she settled in Montreal, where she has
worked in a youth home, among other occupations.

HOW DO I LOOK?
Losing weight is THE main concern for Anaïs, whose body has literally melted away in recent

friend has lost. When Anaïs collapses during a sports activity, the situation can no longer be
ignored. Have Anaïs and Catherine really changed? Why is their situation so disturbing? Is
appearance really so important? This gives their friends lots to think about.

people want to read!
Experience an adventure in Babylon with the Hindu gods...

V Volume 2 forthcoming in spring 2014
Sidouri works as a scribe in her native city, Babylon. Few
women do this work, but she is courageous and loves what
she does.
Target audience:

54 pages each – 2013
Petit Homme
Frédéric Goyette (Freg) is a graphic artist and a keen comic
strip collector.
Katherine Goyette (Makina) teaches in disadvantaged
areas and is interested in helping children develop a love of
reading.
It’s not easy being a terrifying ghost who doesn’t scare anybody, a vampire who can’t stand blood, an eye that can’t
see, or a monster with a bulging forehead who is completely
clueless! Even though the members of Smikée’s gang are all
dysfunctional in their own ways, they are unswervingly
loyal to each other, and they all try as best they can to come
to terms with their identity.
Strong points
Strong points:
One day, she is bitten by a snake and finds herself in the
presence of Yama, the Hindu god of death. He takes her on
as a scribe and asks her to go with him to a great gathering
of all the gods. The gods are worried: human beings are not
behaving respectfully toward the Earth; a solution absolutely must be found to protect the planet. Some suggest a
deadly war, while others prefer a flood. Sidouri opposes
these solutions and convinces the gods to give serious
thought to finding a less violent outcome.
Passionate, enthusiastic and surprising, France-Anne Blanchet draws on mythologies and ancient beliefs to breathe
life into her characters. A bachelor in history, she writes for
young people because she loves to speak to open and curious minds. Her ability to communicate her knowledge
makes her an excellent storyteller.
A vibrant array of colours and endearing characters.
Short stories (one per page), perfect for new readers.
Off-the-wall funny characters, living in a world respectful
of differences and non-violence.
For children aged 7 and older.
The horrifying Smikee is scared to death of cats, Ramone is
hopelessly in love with a heartless woman, Trolina is a
shameless manipulator who has set her sights on Dracula,
Gégé is a total caffeine junkie and Guzume is just a multiphobic eye socket...
Armed with ingenuity and bad ideas, these scatterbrained,
one-of-a-kind, endearing little monsters run into situations
every day that just keep getting crazier and crazier and will
make both children and adults laugh!

BAG TRIP
Bob Sirois & Pierre Thibeault
COLLECTION “MYTHS AND REALITIES OF PHYSICAL TRAINING”
Pierre-Mary Toussaint and Martin Lussier
Lost and found...follow the fantastic adventures of luggage to the far corners of the
earth.
Clear and precise answers for informed athletes.
192 pages
April 2012
Éditions de l’Homme
V English translation available.
Each year, all over the world, more than 25 million pieces of luggage are missing when commercial planes land. More than six
million pieces of baggage will never be found or claimed by passengers. As for the remainder, private companies, working for
airlines in every large airport worldwide, get them through cus-
toms, make contact with travellers and forward their lost luggage to them. Bag Trip is a collection of anecdotes told by employees of these companies and by customs officers. It is a
charming book on an international subject, filled with genuine
anecdotes that are often stranger than fiction!
There is so much contradictory information on all aspects
of fitness and muscle training that it seems as if there are
as many opinions as there are athletes! The authors of
these books have simplified the task by putting together
answers to 50 of the most widespread myths about conditioning, physical activity and body-building.
Pierre-Mary Toussaint is an activity coach and trainer specialized in working with high performance athletes. He holds
a master’s degree in exercise physiology and a diploma in
kinesiology.
The discussion of each myth is several pages long, with
links to related subjects so the reader can find further information.

In the early 1950s, five young black singers from Los Angeles’s poorest neighbourhoods experienced one of the greatest adventures in the history of modern music. Coming out
of nowhere, but bursting with talent and guided by a visionary manager, they lived the ultimate American dream. The
Platters became the first Afro-American group to be successful all over the world. But the American dream can also turn
into a nightmare. Despite having left their mark on popular
music, the Platters died forgotten.
Is heart rate essential for measuring effort? Are protein supplements absolutely necessary after training? What’s the best way to lose weight? What’s the most effective drink

What goes through the killer’s mind at the moment he commits his crime? What makes him perform such horrible
acts? And, above all, are serial killers born or made? To answer these questions, the author visited various American
penitentiaries in person to meet with psychopaths. Alone
with the unhandcuffed killer in a police interview room,
under the watchful eye of security guards hidden behind a
two-way mirror, she wrote down their secrets, each more
12
disturbing than the others. Totally uncensored, the killers’
shocking statements are juxtaposed in the book with accounts by psychiatrists, profilers and criminologists who
are experts in the field and try to dissect the personalities
of those who, on sight, hardly seem human. The result is an
unsettling book that takes us into the minds and hearts of
men who have committed the worst atrocities. A powerful
reaction guaranteed.
Do abdominal exercises really prevent back problems? When using free weights, does a
slower movement give better results? Can a marathoner benefit from body-building training? Is it dangerous to stretch after a heavy training session?

How can you improve your times and minimize the risk of
injury – and make running more enjoyable at the same
time? It’s very simple: You just have to run better, not more.
This book, unlike any other on the market, tackles the qualitative side of running, suggesting movements adapted to
the body’s mechanics, while taking into account each person’s particular characteristics.
Its specific advice for improving running technique in 10
stages covers every aspect of the sport, from your stride to
your pace, and including posture, breathing and arm and leg
movements. This advice is accompanied by clear explanations and sample photos, supplemented by roughly a hundred specific exercises. The book also includes guidelines
for choosing shoes suitable for all kinds of running; an illustrated section on common running injuries, how to avoid
them and the best treatments; and numerous training programs to prepare athletes for running a range of distances.

THE VITAMIN D MYTH
Setting the Record Straight on Hormones

CAN MY BABY EAT ARTICHOKES?
100 Questions and Answers to Help You Feed

Vitamin D: Miracle vitamin?
A provocative book that finally sheds light on this question.
A valuable tool to reassure parents of young children.

Vitamin D is the object of unprecedented fascination and
studies about it are multiplying at lightning speed. Every
possible benefit is attributed to it: prevention of infections
and osteoporosis, lower incidence of heart disease and cancer, better control of diabetes and blood pressure, longer
life expectancy, reduction of chronic pain, treatment for depression, etc. According to some health specialists, nearly
half the population would seem to be deficient in Vitamin D.
Dr. Sylvie Demers, manager of her own menopause-andropause clinic, has another opinion on the issue. In female patients whose estrogen levels have been restored to normal
with hormone therapy, she has observed the same beneficial effects as those attributed to Vitamin D. What’s more,
some patients who were prescribed Vitamin D supplements
to treat osteoporosis or menopausal symptoms didn’t have
a Vitamin D deficiency. So what’s the connection between
Vitamin D and estrogens? What conclusion should we draw
about the usefulness of Vitamin D supplements? Over the
last three years, Dr. Demers has examined hundreds of
studies on Vitamin D and has reached a surprising conclusion: patients who are most often prescribed Vitamin D are
those for whom it may be the most dangerous.
Sylvie Demers has been a professor and has practised
medicine for more than ten years. She is also a biologist and
researcher and holds a doctorate in experimental medicine
with a specialization in human molecular genetics from Université Laval in Canada.
Strong points
An up-to-date and well-researched book that takes into
account every study published on Vitamin D in the last
three years.
A very scientifically rigorous book whose information is
accessible to non-experts.
Many examples of cases to illustrate the author’s point of
view and with which female readers can identify.
Feeding a baby always raises a multitude of questions and
concerns. When is the best time to introduce solid foods
into the child’s diet? At 4 or 6 months? Should cereal or meat
be given as the first food? Can the risk of some allergies be
reduced if certain foods are given before 6 months? What
can you do about a child who refuses to drink milk? Does a
baby need a vitamin supplement? Should a 12-month-old
child be forced to clean his or her plate? Is wheat bad for
babies?
A dietician known for her work with women and children,
Louise Lambert-Lagacé has played a major role in the field
of nutrition in French-speaking countries since 1970.
Strong points
Concrete answers so parents can make immediate
changes in their child’s dietary habits.
A practical format (one page per question-answer) for
ease of reference.
An indispensable guide for soothing parents’ concerns!
In this book, Louise Lambert-Lagacé provides answers to
the questions she is most often asked. She presents the
most recent information on nutrition for younger children,
from birth to 2 years of age, thus helping parents to make
informed choices.

In our twenty-first century society, two personality types
are emerging: the narcissistic and the subservient. Whereas narcissists use others to make themselves feel alive,
subservient individuals live to please others. These two
types of interpersonal relations lead to a dead end in the
search for authenticity.

After painting the typical portrait of each of these profiles
using numerous examples and quotes, Thierry Gaubert suggests ways to let go of sterile and destructive behaviours,
and finally become real. Based on his personal experiences,
the author offers us seven keys for regaining more transparent relationships in our professional, personal, family
and social lives. These keys include, for example, leading
the life we want to lead and not the one society thinks we
should; listening to our intuition so as to learn to have confidence in ourselves again; or using the right words and the
right tone at the right time with the right person.
The seven keys to becoming real
Rethinking your beliefs
The right words for telling the truth
Between socialization and individualization: Finding a
balance
To have or to be: Choosing sides
Qualities to develop
Using our senses to find meaning
Taking care of our brain and body
Strong points
The author’s personal experiences, many quotes from
well-known authors and references to popular culture
make this book accessible to the general public.
Each of the seven chapters ends with a summary
checklist.
Becoming real is quite simply the art of understanding ourselves, knowing who we are and humbly recognizing our
flimsy excuses and missteps.
Thierry Gaubert has worked as a human resources manager
and technical management trainer for big firms in the tertiary
sector. He now gives conferences and workshops in the field
of self-awareness and he also leads the Centre d’Hypnose et

V 20 000 copies sold in French this year.
In each of us there is a deep and sometimes irresistible urge
to love and be loved. Many also feel the desire and determination to move beyond a romantic encounter and create a
stable relationship as a couple. In this book, Jacques Salomé
asks us to think about the discoveries and pathways explored by couples that can turn a loving relationship upside
down. Lucidly and with great compassion, he examines the
various questions partners ask themselves as years go by.
How can the early emotional magic be maintained? How do
we make love last? How do we avoid the pitfalls of repetition,
wear and tear and the monotony of daily life? How do we handle both the giddy heights and the absence of desire, or infidelity in later life? How can we avoid being tricked by the illusion that a change of partner may be a solution? What can
we do when we are carried away by passion and it consumes
our life? What happens when we are faced with separation,
the loss of someone dear to us?
In this collection of inspiring texts, Jacques Salomé takes
us on a fascinating and fertile journey to the known and lesser known lands of love.

full of nutritional power. Without at all sacrificing the pleasure of taste, the authors offer 50 energizing, accessible and
surprisingly simple-to-prepare living recipes that will easily
fit right in with everyday menus.
In contrast to the rigidity of the raw food movement, the
Rawessence philosophy is extremely flexible. These books
suggest changing some recipes into “fusion” dishes, a trend
that more and more fans of the living food movement are
embracing, in which a cooked food, such as a grain, is incorporated into an otherwise raw dish.

offers dietary choices based on respect for life and global
well-being, thereby promoting healthy and responsible living.

HONEY
Nature’s golden delicacy
Anne-Virginie Schmidt & Anicet Desrochers
An enthralling book on honey and bees – you’ll be bitten
by the bug!
192 pages
October 2013
Éditions de l’Homme
Pictured in cave paintings discovered in Spain, South Africa
and India, honey is one of humanity’s most ancient foods.
An undisputed symbol of sweetness, prosperity and abundance, this nectar is the result of Herculean labour carried
out by bees in a striking spirit of cooperation and with remarkable precision.
In this magnificently illustrated book, we discover the history of bees, their morphology, their mysterious language,
the structure of their colonies, their life cycles, and how
work is organized in the hive. The authors present not only
the different stages in the production of honey and the
many secrets of the hive’s other treasures, but also the diversity of our floral heritage and the particular tastes of the
various types of honey that result. Lastly, gourmet recipes
will prompt you to become more familiar with using honey in
cooking.
Co-owners of Miels d’Anicet, Anicet Desrochers and AnneVirginie Schmidt operate an artisanal business of exceptional quality with passion and know-how. As activists involved in safeguarding bee populations around the world,
they put their beliefs into action to showcase the invaluable
role bees play in the planet’s equilibrium and human survival.
