<DIV><B>National bestseller</B><BR /><B>2017 National Book Critics Circle (NBCC) Finalist<BR /> ABA Indies Introduce Winter / Spring 2017 Selection<BR /> Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers Spring 2017 Selection<BR /> ALA 2018 Notable Books Selection<BR /><BR /> An intimate and poignant graphic novel portraying one family’s journey from war-torn Vietnam, from debut author Thi Bui</B>.<BR />  <BR /> This beautifully illustrated and emotional story is an evocative memoir about the search for a better future and a longing for the past. Exploring the anguish of immigration and the lasting effects that displacement has on a child and her family, Bui documents the story of her family’s daring escape after the fall of South Vietnam in the 1970s, and the difficulties they faced building new lives for themselves.<BR />  <BR /> At the heart of Bui’s story is a universal struggle: While adjusting to life as a first-time mother, she ultimately discovers what it means to be a parent—the endless sacrifices, the unnoticed gestures, and the depths of unspoken love. Despite how impossible it seems to take on the simultaneous roles of both parent and child, Bui pushes through. With haunting, poetic writing and breathtaking art, she examines the strength of family, the importance of identity, and the meaning of home.<BR />  <BR /> In what Pulitzer Prize–winning novelist Viet Thanh Nguyen calls “a book to break your heart and heal it,” <I>The Best We Could Do</I> brings to life Thi Bui’s journey of understanding, and provides inspiration to all of those who search for a better future while longing for a simpler past.</DIV>

Nathalie et François sont jeunes et amoureux. Leur vie est une promesse. Tout est joyeusement possible. Mais François meurt accidentellement, un dimanche… Le chagrin de la jolie veuve est profond, comme un mal incurable. La mort inattendue de son mari a figé leur amour. Nathalie s’écarte du monde, accablée, aveugle aux hommes, la voilà devenue cariatide d’un amour en gloire. <br /><br />"Il passait par là, elle l’avait embrassé sans réfléchir. Maintenant elle se demande si elle a bien fait. C’est l’histoire d’une femme qui va être surprise par un homme. Réellement surprise." <br /><br />Mais l’amour est une chimie fabuleuse, qui saisit les cœurs les plus délicats. Nathalie et Markus s’aimeront à leur tour, pétrifiés d’abord de s’aimer l’un l’autre, heureux de se trouver enfin. <br /><br />Cyril Bonin qui avait signé Amorostasia, comédie romantique jouant des codes du fantastique, propose sa lecture personnelle du roman grave et léger de David Foenkinos publié en 2009 aux Éditions Gallimard. Son dessin réaliste et son approche intimiste du monde donnent une nouvelle partition de ce roman populaire, porté à l’écran par l’écrivain. Une nouvelle adaptation sensible où l’on retrouve la grâce charmante du dessin de Bonin, qui de son illustration saillante, révèle l’éclat du roman d’amour.

<h2>If you have always wanted to learn Indonesian quickly but find it too overwhelming or complicated then keep reading …</h2><br /><br /><br />Indonesian is a fun language to learn, the problem is most learning materials are costly and make <b>language learning too complicated</b>. They start of good but then advance too quickly. Just like those dreaded language classes in school. The result, <b>nothing sinks in</b>, <b>you become overwhelmed</b> and eventually give up.<br /><br /><b>We know learning a foreign language isn’t easy</b>, it challenges both your brain and your time. Learning new concepts and setting aside time for your learning can be difficult. And if you’re studying with bad material you can end up getting stuck more than necessary, which isn’t fun.<br /><br />Most students feel to start learning a language you simply need to start. That’s true but it’s <b>better to first find the right resources</b> to help you progress smoothly.

And before you know it you’ll be speaking like a boss!<br /><br />In this book you will discover:<br /><br />• <b>Simple and smooth approach</b> to Indonesian with topics that slowly build on each other. You won’t need another grammar book after you’ve begun reading this one!<br /><br />• Learn how to <b>form your own sentences instead of just set phrases</b>, allowing you to have longer more fun conversations.<br /><br />• Essential vocabulary section with some of the most common words in Indonesian. You’ll definitely find this useful!<br /><br />• <b>Totally written in romanji (English characters)</b> , we leave the reading and writing of Indonesian behind and solely focus on getting you to a conversational speaking level.<br /><br />Even if you’ve struggled to learn Indonesian for years and years, this book gives you the missing piece you need towards your fluency journey. <br /><br />So if you want to learn Indonesian fast and painlessly scroll up and click add to cart.<br />
