VOLUME 2 IN THE UNFORGETTABLE STORY OF AN EXTRAORDINARY CHILDHOODA GUARDIAN BOOK OF THE YEAR | AN OBSERVER GRAPHIC BOOK OF THE YEARA NEW YORK TIMES CRITICS' TOP BOOKS OF 2016 'EXUBERANTLY HERETICAL''I tore through it... The most enjoyable graphic novel I've read in a while' Zadie Smith'I joyously recommend this book to you' Mark Haddon'Riad Sattouf is one of the great creators of our time' Alain De Botton'Beautifully-written and drawn, witty, sad, fascinating... Brilliant' Simon Sebag MontefioreThe first volume of Riad Sattouf's The Arab of the Future introduced young Riad as his family shuttled back and forth between France and the Middle East. Here is the continuation of his heart-rending, darkly comic story. Now settled in his father's village of Ter Maaleh near Homs, Riad finally begins school, where he dedicates himself to becoming a true Syrian in the country of the dictator Hafez Al-Assad. Told simply yet with devastating effect, Riad's story takes in the sweep of Middle Eastern life of the 1980s, but it is steered by acutely observed small moments: the daily sadism of his schoolteachers, the cruelty and vulnerability of his fellow students, and the obsequiousness of his father in the company of those close to the regime. And as the family strains to fit in, one chilling, barbaric act drives the Sattoufs to take the most dramatic of steps. Immediate and gripping, The Arab of the Future 2 once again reveals the inner workings of a tormented country and a tormented family, delivered through Riad Sattouf 's dazzlingly original graphic style.Translated by Sam Taylor.***THE ARAB OF THE FUTURE - THE INTERNATIONAL SENSATION*** #1 BESTSELLER IN FRANCE | GUARDIAN 'BEST GRAPHIC BOOKS OF 2015' PICK | NYTIMES EDITOR'S CHOICE | SELECTED AS ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY LATIMES, SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE, AMAZON.COM, PUBLISHERS WEEKLY, NPR | WINNER OF THE FAUVE D'OR PRIZE FOR BEST ALBUM OF THE YEAR AT THE ANGOULÊME INTERNATIONAL COMICS FESTIVAL | WINNER OF THE LATIMES BOOK PRIZE FOR GRAPHIC NOVELS | NOMINATED FOR 'BEST REALITY-BASED WORK' AT THE EISNER AWARDS

Marissa Mayer and the Fight to Save Yahoo!

Nicholas Carlson
Authors:
Nicholas Carlson

From her controversial rise and fall from power at Google, to her dramatic reshaping of Yahoo's work culture, people are obsessed with, and polarised by, Marissa Mayer's every move. She is full of fascinating contradictions: a feminist who rejects feminism, a charmer in front of a crowd who can't hold eye contact in one-on-ones, and a geek who is Oscar de la Renta's best customer. Marissa Mayer and the Fight to Save Yahoo! tells her story. Back in the 1990s, Yahoo was the internet. It was also a $120 billion company. But just as quickly as it became the world's most famous internet company, it crashed to earth during the dotcom bust. And yet, Yahoo is still here, with nearly a billion people visiting it each month. Marissa Mayer and the Fight to Save Yahoo! tells the fly-on-the-wall story of Yahoo's history for the first time, getting inside the board room as executives make genius calls and massive blunders.Dan Loeb, a tough-talking hedge fund manager, set his sights on Yahoo in 2011. He grew up idolising the corporate raiders of the 1980s, building a career being more vicious than any of them. Without Loeb's initiative, Marissa Mayer would never have been given her chance to save the company. This book tells the tale of how Dan Loeb spotted the real problem inside Yahoo - its awful board - and tore it apart, getting two CEOs fired in the process.When Marissa Mayer first started at Yahoo in 2012, the car parks would empty every week by 4.00 p.m. on Thursday. Over the next two years she made plenty of mistakes, but she learned from them. Now Yahoo's culture is vibrant and users are coming back. In Marissa Mayer and the Fight to Save Yahoo! Nicholas Carlson also explores what may be the internet's first real turnaround.

The Summer Without Men

Siri Hustvedt
Authors:
Siri Hustvedt

After Mia Fredricksen's husband of thirty years asks for a pause - so he can indulge his infatuation with a young French colleague - she cracks up (briefly), rages (deeply), then decamps to her prairie childhood home.There, gradually, she is drawn into the lives of those around her: her mother's circle of feisty widows; the young woman next door; and the diabolical teenage girls in her poetry class. By the end of the summer without men, Mia knows what's worth fighting for - and on whose terms. Provocative, mordant, and fiercely intelligent, this is a gloriously vivacious tragi-comedy about women and girls, love and marriage, and the age-old war between the sexes.

Ben Gutcher on a recent press trip to Paris

PARIS

It’s a hard life working in Publishing. A lot of people who I speak to who don’t work in the industry tend to think that it is all very pleasant, and that we spend our time chatting about the most recent wonderful books that we have just read but they really don’t know just how arduous some of our tasks are. Just a few weeks ago for example, I was up at 5.30am as I had to get to St. Pancras very early to catch the Eurostar to Paris… to have lunch with Edward Rutherfurd… oh… wait a moment… that doesn’t sound too much like hard going after all. And it wasn’t! Later this year we will be publishing Paris by Edward Rutherfurd, which is an epic tome that will absolutely blow people away. And to get people ready for this we decided to kick-off March by taking a select group of booksellers and journalists to Paris to have lunch with the great man. Accompanying us on the journey from the office were Oliver Johnson, Edward’s editor, Karen Geary, his publicist, and Mel Furness who had decided to come to work on her birthday! The day started with coffee and pastries at St Pancras followed closely by some friendly chat on our journey underneath the Channel. My favourite anecdote of the trip was from a bookseller who had once spent a couple of weeks visiting a friend in France who also had friends from America over at the same time. The American couple were quite perplexed as no-one spoke English. It was pointed out that this was rural France and probably not much call for the lingo. The quite brilliant reply to this was “but how do they understand TV?” We arrived at le Gard du Nord and met up with Edward and our chariot that would take us on a mini tour of the city before depositing us at the restaurant. Edward gave a brief introduction to what we would be seeing and then we were ready for the off – only to find that the minibus had a flat battery! After a substantial amount of to-ing and fro-ing and no resolution to a situation that could have seen us eating station sandwiches instead of a sit down dinner we decided to push. The flat battery turned out to be a surprisingly good ice breaker. There is a certain bond between men that comes from push-starting a diesel minibus that just can’t be beaten! With the bus now running we embarked on our tour which was without doubt the best I have ever had of Paris. We saw some of the great sites but we also got off the beaten track. U-turns and narrow cobbled streets were no obstacle to our tour guide and Edward brilliantly punctuated the sights with a combination of historical fact and set pieces from his novel. This really brought the city to life tremendously and made me want to spend a serious amount of time trawling round the city with a copy of the book in my hands visualising it all. We then arrived at le Café de la Paix for what was a fantastic lunch. There is something rather nice about sipping champagne in Paris at lunchtime! The food was exquisite and some of the desserts were a work of art! The lunch wouldn’t be complete though without Edward leading us in singing happy birthday to Mel. Once we had devoured lunch we found ourselves with a mere thirty minutes to get back to the station to catch our train back to London. We divvied up the tickets and then all descended on the taxi rank splitting our group in two. It’s fair to say that some of us (me!) were feeling a little nervous about the grid-locked traffic and our chance of making the train. As we ran through station it did feel rather like a race and we were unsure how many of us would finish! When I boarded the train only two others from the ten were there and the ever witty Oliver Johnson commented that these trips were rather attritional. Thankfully though, everyone made it and the journey back all went smoothly. All in all, a fantastic day.
