<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.

Côte d'Ivoire, fin des années 1970. Aya, dix-neuf ans, vit à Yopougon, un quartier populaire d'Abidjan rebaptisé Yop City, "pour faire comme dans les films américains". Aya a décidé de devenir médecin et d'éviter la fameuse "série C" : Couture, Coiffure et Chasse au mari. Ses amies Bintou et Adjoua, elles, s'y voient déjà et ne pensent qu'à déjouer l'attention paternelle pour passer leurs soirées au Ça va chauffer et leurs nuits à "l'hôtel aux mille étoiles"... Avec une voix et un humour inédits, Aya raconte une Afrique bien vivante, loin des clichés.<br /><br />Ce livre regroupe les volumes 4 à 6 de la série Aya de Yopougon.

Le Haut Mal c’est le nom qu’on donnait à l’épilepsie au Moyen Âge. L’Ascension du Haut Mal c’est l’histoire d’une famille au milieu des années soixante dont le fils aîné, Jean-Christophe, est atteint par cette maladie à l’âge de sept ans. C’est le regard que porte son petit frère, Fafou, qui devient David, sur le bouleversement que ses crises entraînent dans la famille, sur la façon dont les adultes, parents, médecins, passants, charlatans, gourous, réagissent et tentent de guérir Jean-Christophe. Ce sont les souvenirs des ancêtres de la famille. C’est tout l’imaginaire que Fafou projette sur le monde et les événements qui l’entourent et qui participent à la construction du dessinateur qu’il est devenu.

<p>We talk about feminism in the workplace and we talk about dating after #MeToo, but women's own patriarchal conditioning can be the hardest enemy to defeat. When it comes to our sex lives, few of us are free of niggling fears and body image insecurities. Rather than enjoying and exploring our bodies uninhibited, we worry about our bikini lines, bulging tummies, and whether we're doing it 'right'.</p><p>Flo broaches everything from faking it to consent, stress to kink, and how losing your virginity isn't so different to eating your first chocolate croissant. Her mission is to get more people talking openly about what they do and don't want from every romantic encounter.</p>
