L'autopsie d'un système kafkaïen qui génère de la souffrance de chaque côté du guichet.Comme de nombreux Français, Cécile Hautefeuille a connu les affres du chômage. Pour mener à bien son enquête journalistique, l'auteur mêle à son expérience personnelle des témoignages poignants de chômeurs mais également de salariés de Pôle emploi (directeurs, conseillers...). De l'inscription au nouveau job enfin trouvé, la journaliste décrit un véritable parcours du combattant, entre espoir et découragement. Sans aucune complaisance, elle dénonce les lenteurs et incohérences administratives, les chiffres arrangés,les radiations abusives, les annonces discriminantes...Un constat alarmant mais nécessaire : Pôle emploi apparaît comme une machine à broyer, trop souvent devenue folle et démunie face à l'humain.Après six années à RMC, Cécile Hautefeuille a lancé le blog Minisphère du Chômage et donne des cours de radio à l'ESJPRO de Montpellier.

Un président ne devrait pas dire ça... » Cette phrase, François Hollande nous l’a lâchée, un jour d’exaspération. Il s’agaçait, alors, de voir la presse ausculter de trop près sa relation avec ses femmes, Ségolène, Valérie, Julie... Nous avons passé cinq années dans le sillage du chef de l’État, en sa compagnie, sans conseiller, sans témoin. Juste lui et nous. Avec une double exigence : pas de langue de bois, encore moins de propos « off the record ». C’était la condition impérative. Pas de relecture, non plus, de ses « confessions », évidemment, et le recueil de confidences de ses proches : Manuel Valls, Bernard Cazeneuve, Stéphane Le Foll... L’idée, née en 2011, était d’écrire la suite de Sarko m’a tuer, livre dans lequel nous décrivions un pouvoir sarkozyste flirtant avec la ligne jaune. Hollande avait juré qu’il prendrait le contre-pied de son meilleur ennemi, encore fallaitil le vérifier. Pour cela, nous avons plongé au coeur du pouvoir élyséen, exploré la face cachée de la présidence. Ou plutôt du président. Nous l’avons confronté à ses contradictions, questionné sur sa vie privée, sa politique économique, ses promesses non tenues, sa vision de l’islam, de l’extrême droite, des écologistes, de Macron... Et de Sarkozy bien sûr. Une immersion inédite dans le cerveau d’un homme de pouvoir qui s’est confié avec une franchise parfois déconcertante, revisitant les moments forts d’un quinquennat aux allures de chemin de croix, dont nous révélons les secrets. Ni censure, ni autocensure. Jamais un responsable politique, a fortiori un président de la République, ne s’était livré avec une telle liberté de ton. Plusieurs fois, il nous a dit : « Il se trouve que je suis président... » Comme s’il n’y croyait pas. Le président « normal » a accouché d’une présidence anormale. Il n’aurait pas dû « dire ça » ? Pas sûr. En tout cas, nous, nous devions l’écrire.

Exquisitely produced, it offers a reading experience so unique, you'll want both the print and ebook editions! Orphan, clock keeper, and thief, Hugo lives in the walls of a busy Paris train station, where his survival depends on secrets and anonymity. But when his world suddenly interlocks -- like the gears of the clock he keeps -- with an eccentric, bookish girl and a bitter old man who runs a toy booth in the station, Hugo's undercover life and his most precious secret are put in jeopardy. A cryptic drawing, a treasured notebook, a stolen key, a mechanical man, and a hidden message from Hugo's dead father form the backbone of this intricate, tender, and spellbinding mystery. With 284 pages of original drawings, and combining elements of picture book, graphic novel, and film, Brian Selznick breaks open the novel form to create an entirely new reading experience. Here is a stunning, cinematic tour de force from a boldly innovative storyteller, artist, and bookmaker.

"The Sorrows of young Werther is a loosely autobiographical novel first published in 1774. It was Goethe's first major success. The majority of the novel is presented as a collection of letters written by Werther, a young artist of a highly sensitive and passional temperment, and sent to his friend Wilhelm. Werther gives a very intimate account of his stay in the fictional village of Walheim where he meets and falls in love with Lotte, a beautiful girl who is taking care of her siblings following the death of their mother. Lotte is engaged to a man named Albert. Despite the pain it causes Werther he cultivates a friendship with both of them. Each day serves as a torturing reminder that Lotte will never be able to requite his love"--Page 4 of cover.

New York Times bestseller Stimulus plans: good or bad? Free markets: How free are they? Jobs: Can we afford them? Occupy Wall Street . . . worldwide! Everybody’s talking about the economy, but how can we, the people, understand what Wall Street or Washington knows—or say they know? Read Economix. With clear, witty writing and quirky, accessible art, this important and timely graphic novel transforms “the dismal science” of economics into a fun, fact-filled story about human nature and our attempts to make the most of what we’ve got . . . and sometimes what our neighbors have got. Economix explains it all, from the beginning of Western economic thought, to markets free and otherwise, to economic failures, successes, limitations, and future possibilities. It’s the essential, accessible guide to understanding the economy and economic practices. A must-read for every citizen and every voter. PRAISE FOR ECONOMIX “Goodwin brilliantly contextualizes economic theories with historical narrative, while Burr’s simple but elegant illustration employs classical techniques like caricaturing politicians and symbolizing big businesses (as a gleeful factory) to help the reader visualize difficult concepts.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review “[Economix] brings a lively visual sensibility to this intensely abstruse subject matter without condescending to the reader or dumbing the ideas down.” —MotherJones.com “Flat-out awesome!” —Wired.com “This witty and elegant volume takes on a number of complex issues—in this case, economics, history and finance—and makes them comprehensible for mere mortals.” —Miami Herald “After reading Economix I felt like I understood many fundamental aspects about the way the world works that I had been too lazy to learn about before . . . Economix is a book I’m going to buy and give to people.” —Boing Boing “Having never taken economics in college, I find the world of high finance needlessly complicated and confusing. Thankfully Michael Goodwin saw the need for a basic primary on how the economy currently works and how we got here. A text like this would certainly help high school and college students gain their first taste of financial literacy and it comes recommended for the rest of us.” —ComicMix.com “Just when the world seems to have fallen apart thanks to the economy, Goodwin and Burr’s Economix comes along to give us some understanding of the immense, yet still ‘delicate machine’ that controls our world so that we can be the rulers with our votes and not the uninformed (or disinformed) ruled.” —BigThink.com “Michael Goodwin hasn’t just written a great graphic novel—he’s written one that should be required for every school, newsroom and library in the United States.” —Minneapolis Star Tribune “It’s simply phenomenal. You could read ten books on the subject and not glean as much information.” — David Bach founder of FinishRich Media; author of nine New York Times bestsellers, including Debt Free for Life and The Automatic Millionaire “Goodwin has done the seemingly impossible—he has made economics comprehensible and funny.” — Joel Bakan, author of The Corporation: The Pathological Pursuit of Profit and Power “An amazing lesson in true-world economics! Delightfully presented, powerful, insightful, and important information! What a fun way to fathom a deep and often dark subject!” — John Perkins, author of Hoodwinked and the New York Times bestseller Confessions of an Economic Hit Man “Smart, insightful, clear, and as close to the truth as economics can get. The bonus: Who would have guessed that economics could be fun, and—here's the joy—really accessible? Goodwin roots us in history and fills us with common sense understanding. As he puts it early on, economics seems horribly complicated mostly because we're looking at it all at once. Broken down into its component pieces, it's relatively easy to understand. And a good understanding of economics is critical to maneuvering in the world today. If I were compiling a list of the 100 most important books you can read in a lifetime, this would be on it.” —Stephen Petranek, editor-in-chief, Weider History magazines, former editor-in-chief of Discover magazine “Through a potent mix of comics and punchy, concise, accessible prose, Goodwin takes us on a provocative, exhaustively researched, and exceedingly engaging trip through our history and present day, creating an alternately hilarious and scary picture of where we are today as an economy— and what it all means. More than that, Goodwin makes the arcane, understandable. If your mind either spins or slumbers at the thought of economics, read Goodwin's Economix and all will become clear. —Nomi Prins, author of It Takes a Pillage: An Epic Tale of Power, Deceit, and Untold Trillions “Economix is a lively, cheerfully opinionated romp through the historical and intellectual foundations of our current economy and our current economic problems. Goodwin has a knack for distilling complex ideas and events in ways that invite the reader to follow the big picture without losing track of what actually happened. Any reader wondering how our economy got to where it is today will find this a refreshing overview.” —Timothy W. Guinnane, Philip Golden Bartlett Professor of Economic History, Yale University

Renowned Franco-Belgian gag cartoonist Andre Franquin suffered from depression. With his late-career "Idees Noires" series of gags from the late 1970s and early 1980s, created mostly for the independent/underground comics magazine Fluide Glacial, Franquin harnessed his still-virtuoso graphic style to his increasingly morbid worldview. Fantagraphics is proud to present the complete "Idees Noires" collection under the title Franquin's Last Laugh.
