Manga world( Visual )

4 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Filmed in Japan, this program looks beyond the stereotypes to objectively examine the history of manga, how manga are drawn, and manga's influence on Japanese life as illustrated by cosplay bars, where people dress up as their favorite characters; manga kissa, 24/7 manga cafes; and Comicket, the twice-annual comics market that draws hundreds of thousands of visitors. The program also introduces viewers to a cross-section of mangaka icons: Vagabond creator Takehiko Inoue; Naoki Urasawa, author of The Pushman and Other Stories; Jiro Taniguchi; Yoshihiro Tatsumi; and Kan Takahama
A fan's notes : a fictional memoir by Frederick Exley( Book )

4 editions published between 2011 and 2018 in French and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frederick Exley's inimitable "fictional memoir" A Fan's Notes has assumed the status of a classic since its first publication in 1968. Mordantly and poignantly, Exley describes the profound failures of his life - professional, sexual, and personal. His attempts to find a place for himself in an unaccommodating world take him from the University of Southern California to Chicago - where he meets the dangerously seductive, lovely Bunny Sue Allorgee - to New York City's Greenwich Village saloons, and back to Watertown, his hometown in upstate New York, where he spends months on his mother's living room davenport watching television before undergoing shock treatment at Avalon Valley hospital. Between bars, women, and jobs, Exley exercises his obsession with the New York Giants and their great halfback Frank Gifford, until he at last realizes his life's ambition: writing A Fan's Notes

"Un roman kaléidoscopique qui retrace la vie d'un certain New York, de l'anarchie des années sida aux hipsters de demain. New York. Milly et Jared, couple aisé animé d'ambitions artistiques, habite l'immeuble Christodora, vieux building de Greenwich Village. Les habitants du Christodora mènent une vie de bohèmes bien loin de l'embourgeoisement qui guette peu à peu le quartier. Leur voisin, Hector, vit seul. Personnage complexe, ce junkie homosexuel portoricain n'est plus que l'ombre du militant flamboyant qu'il a été dans les années quatre-vingt. Mateo, le fils adoptif de Milly et Jared, est choyé par ses parents qui voient en lui un artiste. Mais le jeune homme, en plein questionnement sur ses origines, se rebelle contre ses parents et la bourgeoisie blanche qu'ils représentent. Milly, Jared, Hector et Mateo, autant de vies profondément liées d'une manière que personne n'aurait pu prévoir. Dans cette ville en constante évolution, les existences de demain sont hantées par le poids du passé."--Plon
I hate the Internet : a useful novel by Jarett Kobek( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in French and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Après avoir commis « la seule faute impardonnable du début du XXIe siècle » – exprimer publiquement une opinion impopulaire –, Adeline, célèbre illustratrice de bande dessinée, devient la cible d’attaques haineuses sur les réseaux sociaux. Ellen, une jeune femme de vingt-deux ans sans histoires, subit le même sort lorsque des photos de ses ébats sexuels avec son petit ami du lycée se propagent de manière virale sur la toile. Dans le San Francisco de 2013, elles ont fait l’erreur d’être des femmes au sein d’une société qui déteste les femmes. Dans Je hais Internet, Jarett Kobek pose un regard satirique sur une société hyper-connectée, tout acquise au virtuel, intrusive. Il s’en prend à l’idéal libertaire aux origines d’Internet, et se demande comment les géants du net ont réussi à générer des milliards de dollarsen exploitant la créativité d’internautes impuissants, sans rencontrer d’opposition. À l’ère du sacre des réseaux sociaux, un récit jubilatoire et salutaire" -- Site internet de l'éditeur

Soft City by Pushwagner( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in French and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Soft City, du dessinateur norvégien Hariton Pushwagner est un joyau du roman graphique, une dystopie unique en noir et blanc qui retrace la journée ubuesque d'un cadre moyen dans une mégalopole anonyme, au beau milieu des années 1970. Le trait unique de Pushwagner, alors tout juste adulte, bien avant qu'il ne devienne un artiste contemporain reconnu, plonge dans la vie morne et aliénante de la société de consommation. Ce livre culte n'avait jamais été publié jusqu'alors : sur la recommandation de W. S. Burroughs, un éditeur anglais avait voulu le publier en 1979 mais l'artiste avait perdu toutes ses planches dans le bateau l'amenant d'Oslo à Londres. Données pour perdues, elles refont surface trois décennies plus tard, et c'est la New York Review of Books qui se charge de les publier, fin 2016."

Making nice by Matt Sumell( Book )

2 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in French and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Matt Sumell's blazing, heartbreaking first book, our rage-filled hero Alby is flailing wildly against the world around him--he punches his sister (she deserved it), "unprotectos" broads (they deserved it and liked it), gets drunk and picks fights (all deserved), defends defenseless creatures both large and small and spews insults at children, slow drivers, lunch ladies, and every single surviving member of his family. It seems he is the angriest young man in the history of angry young men, and in each of these stories, we watch him run at life with a breakneck speed. But after the loss of his mother to a long battle with cancer, swirling at the center of Alby's fury is a grief so big, so life-shatteringly profound, it might swallow him whole. As Alby drinks, screws, and jokes his way through his pain--from his childhood home on Long Island to a houseboat in a California and many somewheres in between--his heartache, his anger, his kindness and his capacity for good bubble up when he (and we) least expect it. One part Junot Diaz and one part Barry Hannah, MAKING NICE is a naked, hysterical rendering of a heart sorting through its broken pieces, clinging to laughter and rage to survive. With prose that is by turns mirthful, jagged, and devastatingly raw, Sumell delivers a powerful, full-steam-ahead debut that will wrestle you to the ground and keep you laughing even as you try to catch your breath. MAKING NICE is a new classic about love, loss and the fine line between grappling through grief and fighting for (and with) the only family you've got"--
