<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.

Qui sont vraiment les zadistes de Notre-Dame-des-Landes ? Que veulent-ils ? Comment vivent-ils ? <br />Embarqués pendant de longues semaines à leurs côtés, les auteurs ont choisi une fiction documentée pour rendre compte, au plus près, de la réalité de la vie sur la ZAD. Le récit de Thomas Azuélos et Simon Rochepeau est celui d’une lutte, hors des partis et mouvements traditionnels, contre l’aménagement capitaliste du territoire et pour défendre d’autres manières de vivre.

Dans un futur proche, en République Démocratique de Wallonie. Ludmilla et Manon, deux jeunes adolescentes, membres de Fauves de Hesbaye, une formation scoute, sont de ferventes supportrices du président Delcominette. Un président qui lorgne sur les méthodes de Mao Tsé Toung pour diriger son pays et qui pour cela, n’hésite pas à acheter aux chinois la dépouille embaumée du Grand Timonier. Et cela tombe bien, la Chine, qui a basculée dans l’économie de marché, souhaite se débarrasser de cet encombrant symbole d’un temps révolu. <br /><br />La vie de Ludmilla va être bouleversée par différentes rencontres. Elle est blessée accidentellement par Antoine, un jeune garçon fougueux, très critique envers le régime. De son passage en prison (ou plutôt en camp de rééducation par le travail), Antoine fait la connaissance de Frank, l’assassin présumé d’un jeune scout. À leurs sorties respectives, Frank et Antoine cherchent à revoir Ludmilla, mais pour des raisons bien différentes. Car tous ne sont que les pions d’un complot qui se referme inexorablement sur eux.
