How to be Parisian, Wherever You Are

Title: How to be Parisian, Wherever You Are
Author: BEREST ANNE & DE MAIGRET CAROLINE

Four fabulous, smart, savvy French women offer up their highly amusing insider take on Parisian life, love and liberty.

How to Be a Parisian brilliantly deconstructs the French woman's views on culture, fashion and attitude. Unlike other books on French style, this illustrated handbook is full of wit and self-deprecating humour. Authors - Anne Berest, Audrey Diwan, Caroline De Maigret and Sophie Mas – are bohemian free-thinkers and iconoclasts, and they are not afraid to cut through some of the myths. They say what you don't expect to hear, just the way you want to hear it. They are not against smoking in bed, and all for art, politics and culture, making everything look easy, and going against the grain.

Including 80 black and white and colour pictures, many taken by the authors, How to Be a Parisian explains those confusing subjects of clothes, makeup, men, culture and lifestyle as only a true Parisienne can.

On the style front:
You don't always have to be made up, but you should always be well dressed.
Your look should always have one thing left undone - the devil is in the detail.
Either go all grey hair or no grey hair. Salt and pepper is for the table.
Or on how to answer the phone when he finally calls:
The Parisienne lets the phone ring. (She's not waiting by the phone.)
She feigns surprise upon hearing his voice. (She wasn't expecting his call.)
She asks if she can call him back in five minutes. (She's in the middle of something.)
The thing is, she's not alone... (Et oui: you should never have kept her waiting.)
What the Parisian won't let near her wardrobe:
Logos. You are not a billboard.
Ugg Boots. Enough said. Don't even ask.
Skimpy top. Because you're not fifteen anymore.
The fake designer bag. Like fake breasts, you can't fix your insecurities through forgery.
The ideal man to be seen with:
He's not muscular (You'd rather think of him reading a book than lifting weights)
He's unshaven (Just enough so that you never fully see the man behind the stubble)
He's funny (Until he disappears)
He's got something special (And it's not a car)
There are many books on a Parisian's bookshelf:
The books you claim you've read so many times that you actually believe you have.
The books you read in school of which you only remember the main character's name.
The books that you've been promising yourself you'll read next summer...for the past ten years.
The books that you think make you cool.
The books you keep for your children, just in case you ever have any.
The books you own simply because you must and, taken together, form intangible proof that you are well read.

Title: How to be Dead in a Year of Snakes
Author: TSE CHRIS

In his first full-length collection, Chris Tse pays 'proper respect' to events of more than a hundred years ago, interviewing a tragic cast, singing with a chorus and laying ghosts to rest. The 'gallery of lost names' to whose lives he bears witness includes the Chinese miners whose bones remained for decades far from home on the shores of the Hokianga; their countrymen and families; other various ghosts who wander or seek revenge; and - crucially - Joe Kum Yung, a Cantonese goldminer who for a hundred years has been trapped as a ghostly victim by his history, whose name is remembered because tied to another's, that of Lionel Terry who went out one Wellington night 'looking for a Chinaman'. In poems of quietly polished, resonant language and deft imagery, Tse circles these events and the viewpoints from which they could be seen or told, then and now - asking who we should remember, how we should honour the past, and what we should take forward to the future. HOW TO BE DEAD IN A YEAR OF SNAKES is a terrific, lyric, charged narrative - and an unusually expansive first collection.

Title: How to Develop Emotional Health
Author: JAMES OLIVER

How to Create Emotional Health is a guide to leading a more enjoyable and fulfilling life. Rather than seeking to be happy, Oliver James encourages the idea of wellbeing a state in which we are self-aware, authentic, adaptable, vivacious and able to live in the moment. He shows that through self-reflection, we can develop insight and awareness of who we are and what we truly want and need. By paying special attention to the impact of childhood and past relationships, we can tackle insecurities and alter negative thought patterns, ultimately improving the way we function as adults. Key to this approach is the adoption of a more resilient and playful mind-set, one which allows us to learn from mistakes and bounce back in a healthy way. In this thought-provoking and uplifting guide, Oliver develops strategies for meeting the challenges of daily life, including practical advice for setting career goals, strengthening relationships and improving family cohesion. He offers vital steps towards insight, energy and the ultimate reward of complete emotional health.

Title: Hired Man
Author: FORNA AMINATTA

The new novel from the winner of the Commonwealth Writer's Prize, The Hired Man is a taut, powerful novel of a small town and its dark wartime secrets, unwittingly brought into the light by a family of outsiders. Aminatta Forna has established herself as one of our most perceptive and uncompromising chroniclers of war and the way it reverberates, sometimes imperceptibly, in the daily lives of those touched by it. With The Hired Man, she has delivered a tale of a Croatian village after the War of Independence, and a family of newcomers who expose its secrets.Duro is off on a morning's hunt when he sees something one rarely does in Gost: a strange car. Later that day, he overhears its occupants, a British woman, Laura, and her two children, who have taken up residence in a house Duro knows well. He offers his assistance getting their water working again, and soon he is at the house every day, helping get it ready as their summer cottage, and serving as Laura's trusted confidant.But the other residents of Gost are not as pleased to have the interlopers, and as Duro and Laura's daughter Grace uncover and begin to restore a mosaic in the front that has been plastered over, Duro must be increasingly creative to shield the family from the town's hostility, and his own past with the house's former occupants. As the inhabitants of Gost go about their days, working, striving to better themselves and their town, and arguing, the town's volatile truths whisper ever louder.A masterpiece of storytelling haunted by lost love and a restrained menace, this novel recalls Disgrace by J.M. Coetzee and Anil's Ghost by Michael Ondaatje. The Hired Man confirms Aminatta Forna as one of our most important writers.

"The New York Times "bestselling Culture novel...
The Scavenger species are circling. It is, truly, provably, the End Days for the Gzilt civilization.
An ancient people, organized on military principles and yet almost perversely peaceful, the Gzilt helped set up the Culture ten thousand years earlier and were very nearly one of its founding societies, deciding not to join only at the last moment. Now theyve made the collective decision to follow the well-trodden path of millions of other civilizations; they are going to Sublime, elevating themselves to a new and almost infinitely more rich and complex existence.
Amid preparations though, the Regimental High Command is destroyed. Lieutenant Commander (reserve) Vyr Cossont appears to have been involved, and she is now wanted - dead, not alive. Aided only by an ancient, reconditioned android and a suspicious Culture avatar, Cossont must complete her last mission given to her by the High Command. She must find the oldest person in the Culture, a man over nine thousand years old, who might have some idea what really happened all that time ago.
It seems that the final days of the Gzilt civilization are likely to prove its most perilous.

Stone by stone the basilica was being dismantled in order to be put back together again. Each stone was painted with a number and laid with care onto pallets spread over the ground . . . I kept thinking about those numbered stones. Some purpose began to take shape. I began to wonder if I might re-trace and recover something of my own past, to reassemble it in the manner of the basilica. It was a matter of looking to see if any of the original building blocks remained, and where might I find them.

Title: Hhhh
Author: BINET LAURENT

HHhH:"Himmlers Hirn heisst Heydrich" , or "Himmler's brain is called Heydrich" . The most dangerous man in Hitler's cabinet, Reinhard Heydrich was known as the "Butcher of Prague." He was feared by all and loathed by most. With his cold Aryan features and implacable cruelty, Heydrich seemed indestructible - until two men, a Slovak and a Czech recruited by the British secret service, killed him in broad daylight on a bustling street in Prague, and thus changed the course of History.


Who were these men, arguably two of the most discreet heroes of the twentieth century? In Laurent Binet's captivating debut novel, we follow Jozef Gabćik and Jan Kubis from their dramatic escape of Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia to England; from their recruitment to their harrowing parachute drop into a war zone, from their stealth attack on Heydrich's car to their own brutal death in the basement of a Prague church.


A seemingly effortlessly blend of historical truth, personal memory, and Laurent Binet's remarkable imagination, HHhH- an international bestseller and winner of the prestigious Prix Goncourt du Premier Roman - is a work at once thrilling and intellectually engrossing, a fast-paced novel of the Second World War that is also a profound meditation on the nature of writing and the debt we owe to history.

History of the World in 100 Objects
History of the World in 100 Objects
ISBN: 9780241951774
Title: History of the World in 100 Objects
Author: MACGREGOR NEIL

This book takes a dramatically original approach to the history of humanity, using objects which previous civilisations have left behind them, often accidentally, as prisms through which we can explore past worlds and the lives of the men and women who lived in them. The book’s range is enormous. It begins with one of the earliest surviving objects made by human hands, a chopping tool from the Olduvai gorge in Africa, and ends with an object from the 21st century which represents the world we live in today. Neil MacGregor’s aim is not simply to describe these remarkable things, but to show us their significance – how a stone pillar tells us about a great Indian emperor preaching tolerance to his people, how Spanish pieces of eight tell us about the beginning of a global currency or how an early Victorian tea-set tells us about the impact of empire. Each chapter immerses the reader in a past civilisation accompanied by an exceptionally well-informed guide. Seen through this lens, history is a kaleidoscope – shifting, interconnected, constantly surprising, and shaping our world today in ways that most of us have never imagined. An intellectual and visual feast, it is one of the most engrossing and unusual history books published in years.

Title: Huts: Untold Stories from Back Country NZ
Author: PICKERING MARK

If huts could talk they could tell the whole history of the back country. Of Scottish shepherds with a Gaelic brogue who arrived in the high country with the fresh, vivid memories of the Highland Clearances. Of the flush and fury of goldminers and water-racemen in Central Otago. Or of the patient and poorly paid jobs of boundary keepers, musterers and roadmen, who lived in tiny huts in the shadow of huge landscapes. There are over 1500 huts in New Zealand - an extraordinary number, and this book is the untold story of several of them. Remarkably, most of these historic huts still do the job they were built for, whether it's a pit-sawn deer cullers' hut in the Urewera National Park or a tiny skiers' shack in the Craigieburn Range. Every hut has a story to tell. Shutes Hut was built by Alex Shute, a rabbiter and practical joker who lost himself in the Ruahine back country for more than 20 years. Freemans Hut was part of Les Murrell's vision for an amazing tourist track in the Fiordland mountains. HUTS: UNTOLD STORIES OF BACK-COUNTRY NEW ZEALAND is a celebration of the endurance of these huts and the men who built and lived in them. It is a fascinating look at the place of these iconic dwellings in New Zealand's social and mountain history. Everyone who has worked or played in the New Zealand mountains had enjoyed the refuge of the humble hut. They may be only iron, nails and wood, but these flimsy, isolated huts are a living treasury. They weren't built to last, but a surprising number have. This is their story.

Title: How to Train Your Dragon #1 Hiccup
Author: COWELL CRESSIDA

Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III was an awesome sword-fighter, a dragon-whisperer and the greatest Viking Hero who ever lived. But it wasn't always like that. In fact, in the beginning, Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III was the most put upon Viking you'd ever seen. Not loud enough to make himself heard at dinner with his father, Stoick the Vast; not hard enough to beat his chief rival, Snotlout, at Bashyball, the number one school sport and CERTAINLY not stupid enough to go into a cave full of dragons to find a pet... It's time for Hiccup to learn how to be a Hero.

History of Sexuality Vol 1: the Will to Know (Pop Penguin)

Title: History of Sexuality Vol 1: the Will to Know (Pop Penguin)
Author: FOUCAULT MICHEL

Michel Foucault's The Will to Knowledge is the first part of his influential trilogy of books onthe history of sexuality. He argues that the recent explosion of discussion about sex in the West means that, far from being liberated, we are in the process of making a science of sexuality that is devoted to the analysis of desire rather than the increase of pleasure. This is a brilliant polemic from a groundbreaking radical intellectual.
