Frédérique ferma les yeux. Elle trouvait que le ton de Jules ressemblait davantage à du mépris qu'à de la pitié. Une fois de plus, le choix avait été fait de laisser mourir certains pour en privilégier d'autres. N'était-ce pas ce que Jules avait reproché au Président lors de leur fuite de l'Heptapole? Ça ne les dérangeait plus, désormais? Jules profita du silence de Frédérique pour lui enlever définitivement tout espoir de réintégrer l'Unicapitale déguisée en garçon.

Harlem has captivated the imagination of writers, artists, intellectuals, and politicians around the world since the early decades of this century. Rhapsodies in Black: Art of the Harlem Renaissance examines the cultural reawakening of Harlem in the 1920s and 1930s as a key moment in twentieth-century art history, one that transcended regional and racial boundaries. Published to coincide with the exhibition that opens in England and travels to the United States, this catalog reflects the Harlem Renaissance's impressive range of art forms—literature, music, dance, theater, painting, sculpture, photography, film, and graphic design. The participants included not only artists based in New York, but also those from other parts of the United States, the Caribbean, and Europe. Richard J. Powell and David A. Bailey present selected works that focus on six themes: Representing "The New Negro;" Another Modernism; Blues, Jazz, and the Performative Paradigm; The Cult of the Primitive; Africa: Inheritance and Seizure; and Jacob Lawrence's Toussaint L'Ouverture series. The visual arts from 1919 to 1938 included in the book suggest the extraordinary vibrancy of the time when Harlem was a metaphor for modernity. In spite of the importance of the Harlem Renaissance to early twentieth-century American culture and to the artistic climate of "Jazz Age" Paris and Weimar Berlin, few art exhibitions have been devoted exclusively to the subject. Rhapsodies in Black will be welcomed for its unique presentation of this creative time.

Sille havde en arm om nakken på mig. Jeg kunne fornemme hendes parfume under lugten af saltvand på hendes hud.
"Hvad er det?" spurgte hun, da hun fik øje på det Max havde opdaget.
"Det ligner.." begyndte Richard og gik i stå. "Jeg tror sgu det er et skelet," nikkede Max. "Jeg kan bare ikke gennemskue fra hvilket dyr." Aftegningen af en snoet rygsøjle og to parallelle rækker ribben kunne skimtes i sandet. Små, hvide knoglespidser stak op i luften. Jeg havde fra starten en god fornemmelse. Det ville blive et par dejlige dage i Richards forældres sommerhus." Men Janus ved ikke at sommerhusområdet, hvor han og tre venner glæder sig til at tilbringe weekenden, ikke er helt almindeligt.
De lokale holder nemlig på en hemmelighed. Om noget, der har hjemsøgt egnen i årevis. Noget, der dukker op når mørket falder på. Noget, der kommer sammen med tidevandet...
