<DIV><I>Lunarbaboon</I> shares life's parenting moments from the perspective of a 30-something dad/husband/chaos survivor. Together with the savvy, laid back Mom, wild child Moishe, baby Matilda, and a former Julliard student (their cat), Lunarbaboon must navigate the family and social dynamics of everyday life. Ranging from the hilarious (defeating closet monsters with a “stun” blaster that offers surprising facts about bears, Mars, and cats) to the sweet (the gray scale-to color transition out of depression at the touch of a loved one), this collection explores the bonds within a family and all the characters who bring both order and chaos to life.<BR /><BR />Lunarbaboon’s perfect meld of crabby humor and moments of impactful honesty give these comics a wide range and distinctive voice that’s both comical and sincere.</DIV>

Yaichi is a work-at-home suburban dad in contemporary Tokyo; formerly married to Natsuki, father to their young daughter, Kana. Their lives suddenly change with the arrival at their doorstep of a hulking, affable Canadian named Mike Flanagan, who declares himself the widower of Yaichi’s estranged gay twin, Ryoji. Mike is on a quest to explore Ryoji’s past, and the family reluctantly but dutifully takes him in. What follows is an unprecedented and heartbreaking look at the state of a largely still-closeted Japanese gay culture: how it’s been affected by the West, and how the next generation can change the preconceptions about it and prejudices against it.<br /><br /><i>(Please note: This book is a traditional work of manga, and reads back to front and right to left.)</i>

À Deraa, en Syrie, Haytham est le fils d'un des leaders de la jeune révolution. À 14 ans, il est sur les premières barricades, mais bientôt il doit fuir. Il arrive en France, un pays dont il ne parle pas la langue. Quatre ans plus tard, après une mention bien au bac, le jeune réfugié est devenu un élève brillant de maths sup. Cette histoire vraie, à la fois tragique et porteuse d'espoir, est racontée par Nicolas Hénin, grand reporter et spécialiste de la Syrie qui fut pendant près d'un an otage de Daesh, et mise en images par le dessinateur de Yallah Bye. Haytham a activement participé à l'écriture du scénario, donnant à ce récit passionnant toute sa vérité.

<b>The hilarious, take-no-prisoners novel about a cynical, sex-obsessed teenager's pining love for an intelligent girl--the basis for the major motion picture starring Michael Cera</b><br /><br /><i>Youth in Revolt</i> is the journals of Nick Twisp, California's most precocious diarist, whose ongoing struggles to make sense out of high school, deal with his divorced parents, and lose his virginity result in his transformation from an unassuming fourteen-year-old to a modern youth in open revolt. As his family splinters, worlds collide, and the police block all routes out of town, Nick must cope with economic deprivation, homelessness, the gulag of the public schools, a competitive type-A father, murderous canines, and an inconvenient hair trigger on his erectile response--all while vying ardently for the affections of the beauteous Sheeni Saunders, teenage goddess and ultimate intellectual goad.

Bangalore c’est assez moche, ça n’a pas le charme désuet de Calcutta ni la folie épicée de Bombay ou la grandeur historique de New Delhi. Il n’y a quasiment que des ingénieurs, des étudiants ingénieurs et des gens qui font des métiers comme appuyer sur le bouton de l’ascenseur ou vérifier d’un oeil hagard que le ticket de caisse correspond à ce qu’il y a dans le sac de course à la sortie des supermarchés.Dans les rues de Bangalore, on trouve presque tout : des fruits et des légumes, du thé et des cigarettes, des cireurs de chaussures et parfois même des coiffeurs. La télévision se regarde au travers des vitrines des restaurants et le linge sale s’y lave en famille. Certains y dorment, d’autres y fument, boivent ou pissent contre les murs. Des serviteurs y promènent des chiens obèses et les jupes des filles raccourcissent, tandis que le corps des mères s’épaissit.Enfin, à Bangalore, on trouve aussi un dessinateur français, qui traîne dans les rues et tente de dessiner ce qui le séduit dans cette babylone moderne.
