They are members of the Tuesday Night Suvivor’s Club: four women who have faced addiction and come through the other side in control of themselves and their lives. They make a pact to start enjoying the sensual side of life on their own terms. But love may prove to be an addiction too strong to break.

Nadia Spiceland is a former celebrity chef and recovering narcotics addict who has finally regained control of her life. There is one area in which she'd like to relinquish control, and for that she enlists the help of Kaname Sullivan, a professor of human sexuality known as Professor Sex, to help her reenact scenes from ancient erotic texts. When sex becomes something more, Nadia is faced with a tough choice: quit Professor Sex cold turkey or accept that love is the best drug of all.

ABOVE THE DREAMLESS DEAD edited by Chris Duffy
Publishers Weekly, July 18, 2014 issue: STARRED REVIEW!
« “The real strength of the anthology comes both from the poems selected for it and the variety of visual approaches—ranging from the cartoonish to the phantasmagoric— that prevents it from relying simply on the visual carnage of the ‘war to end all wars.’”

THE SHADOW HERO by Gene Luen Yang, illus. by Sonny Liew
Shelf Awareness, July 18, 2014: STARRED REVIEW!
« “Through this very human hero and his green turtle alter ego, Yang and Liew debate cowardice versus bravery, vulnerability versus strength, disdain versus compassion.”

NPR’s Morning Edition, July 15, 2014: LISTEN!
“Yang's new graphic novel firmly establishes the Green Turtle as Asian-American, unmasking the superhero as a teenager named Hank Chu, the American-born son of Chinese immigrants living in the Chinatown of a fictional city on California's coast in the 1930s.”

Criminal Element, July 10, 2014: READ IT!
“The universal theme of adjusting from adolescence to adulthood with its attendant responsibilities (dealt with most famously in comic books by the teams behind the Spiderman series) is depicted through a unique and entirely worthwhile perspective here…An excellent graphic novel on many fronts, and one I can’t recommend enough.”

Vox, July 9, 2014: AUTHOR INTERVIEW!
“In a lot of ways, I'm hoping TSH comes across sort of like an homage to this genre that I've loved since I was kid. I think narratively it's structured very much like a standard superhero origins story, like Spiderman or Batman.”

Kirkus, August 15, 2014 issue: STARRED REVIEW!
« “This innovative and intelligent reimagining hits all the notes of the Bard's famous play yet manages to put enough of a spin on it to keep it fresh and novel…Encore, please!”

IN REAL LIFE by Cory Doctorow, illus. by Jen Wang
Kirkus, September 1, 2014 issue
“Both wholly satisfying as a work of fiction and serious food for thought about the real-life ramifications of playing in an intangible world.”

Shelf Awareness, July 22, 2014
“Doctorow's story is mostly about the very real economics that are at play in the virtual worlds of MMORPGs and how they affect people in different parts of the world, in different strata of class. Wang's cute, cartoony art is a perfect counterpoint to this weighty subject matter.”

Kirkus, August 1, 2014 issue
“Hatke steps from graphic novels to the picture-book format with aplomb, blending tropes from both worlds for a sweetly weird domestic adventure. Readers will want to move right in.”

THE RISE OF AURORA WEST by Paul Pope, JT Petty, and David Rubin
Previews World, July 10, 2014: SNEAK PEEK!
“The extraordinary world introduced in Paul Pope's Battling Boy is rife with monsters and short on heroes, and in this action-driven extension of the Battling Boy universe, we see it through a new pair of eyes: Aurora West, daughter of Arcopolis's last great hero, Haggard West.”

SHACKLETON: Antarctic Odyssey by Nick Bertozzi
Shelf Awareness, July 15, 2014
“A brilliant graphic-novel biography of Ernest Shackleton and his third voyage to the Antarctic.”

School Library Journal, August 2014 issue
“Like the famous photographs of Shackleton’s expedition, Bertozzi’s black-and-white artwork captures both the bleakness and the majesty of the surrounding snow and ice…An excellent choice for readers who enjoy nonfiction, graphic novels, explorers, true adventure, and impossible dreams.”

THIS ONE SUMMER by Mariko Tamaki, illus. by Jillian Tamaki
Bustle, June 2014: “2014’s Best YA Books
“not only a stunningly illustrated novel, but one that speaks so honestly and plainly about the process (both wonderful and awful) of growing up that readers will no doubt feel twinges of nostalgia each page.”

THE WRENCHIES by Farel Dalrymple
Publishers Weekly, July 11, 2014 issue
With its plot in constant flux and scant exposition, it’s easy to get lost in the violent fever dream Dalrymple has concocted. But far from being a detraction, the book’s untethered structure plays into its overall weirdness and elusive premise.”

School Library Journal, August 2014 issue
“Dalrymple’s art vibrates with violent action, awash in colors alternately lush and lurid. His masterfully detailed panels reward careful study, from devilish grotesqueries to intricate architectural cutaways.”


·         A WRINKLE IN TIME: THE GRAPHIC NOVEL by Madeleine L’Engle, adapted and illus. by Hope Larson / New York Times Bestsellers List, Hardcover Graphic Novels, July 27, 2014: #10 (44th week on the list!)

AND TWO BOYS BOOED by Judith Viorst, illus. by Sophie Blackall
School Library Journal, August 2014 issue
“From page to page, kids in the audience fidget, play with each other’s hair, distract others, and whisper—giving real authenticity to the tale.”

IF YOU WERE A DOG by Jamie A. Swenson, illus. by Chris Raschka
Kirkus, August 1, 2014 issue
“Swenson's rhythmic cadences coupled with Raschka's wry, upbeat illustrations yield a title that's a cheery picker-upper.”

School Library Journal, August 2014 issue
“Raschka brings movement, energy, and personality to his vibrantly colored art.”

School Library Journal, August 2014 issue
“A sweet, charming story that young children will enjoy.”

NOT VERY SCARY by Carol Brendler, illus. by Greg Pizzoli
Kirkus, August 1, 2014 issue
“Brendler's cumulative tale uses silly rhymes and humorous descriptions to make this counting adventure one that invites participation.”

School Library Journal, August 2014 issue
“Just a dash of spookiness.”

Booklist, June 12, 2014
“In Alice’s cheeky first-person narrative, Toor explores how easy it can be to simply sprint away from defeat and what might go undiscovered if we do.”

STARRY NIGHT by Isabel Gillies
Publishers Weekly, July 18, 2014 issue
“Gillies’s first YA novel traces the rise and fall of a young artist’s first love and how it changes her course.”

HOW IT WENT DOWN by Kekla Magoon
Kirkus, September 1, 2014 issue: STARRED REVIEW!
« “As each character reflects on Tariq, a complex young man is revealed, one who used his considerable charm to walk the tightrope of life in his neighborhood. Magoon skillfully tells the story in multiple, sometimes conflicting, voices.”

School Library Journal, August 2014 issue
“With a great hook and relatable characters, this will be popular for fans of realistic fiction.”

Rita Williams-Garcia
“In How it Went Down, Kekla Magoon deftly renders us witnesses to an all too common news flash in uncommon, unflinching prose.  Gripping to the end.”

Helen Frost
“Thoughtful and compassionate, beautifully composed, this book takes us inside what we think we know and shows us more."

School Library Journal, August 2014 issue
“Stylish, jazzy, and unique.”

Kirkus, August 15, 2014 issue
“An urbane, adventuresome fox provides an evening's entertainment for an eclectic company in this nighttime escapade aloft. When his hot air balloon is delivered, Mr. Fox wastes no time.”

Booklist, June 20, 2014
“The fast-paced plot, mirroring familiar TV crime procedurals, makes this a good choice for reluctant readers, especially as it’s possible to follow the clues and identify the killer.”

EDDA by Adam Auerbach
Booklist, July 9, 2014
“Auerbach hilariously depicts often-grumpy Edda, always wearing armor and a winged helmet among her T-shirt-clad classmates, in spare and cheerful line drawings.”

LITTLE BOO by Stephen Wunderli, illus. by Tim Zeltner
Kirkus, August 1, 2014 issue
“A fresh and wonderfully tame autumn tale.”

School Library Journal, August 2014 issue
“Zeltner has layered paint and color to effectively convey changing seasons and shows a natural community that teems with anthropomorphic snowflakes, garden boots, and grasshoppers.”

Kirkus, August 1, 2014 issue
“A series of Zen lessons touched with gentle humor.”


Değerli Yayıncılarımız; 

Sizlerle temsilcisi bulunduğum Jill Grinberg Literary Management'ın listelerinden önümüzdeki hafta yayınlanacak yetişkinlere yönelik kurgusal olmayan bir kitaptan, John Bemelmans Marciano'nun kaleme aldığı WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THE METRIC SYSTEM'den söz etmek isterim. ANONYPONYMOUS ve TOPONYMITY adlı eserleriyle New York Times bestseller yazarlarından John Bemelmans Marciano , çeyrek ve ondalıklarla aynı miktarda, bir insanlık dramını, büyük mucitler, vizyoner başkanlar, obsesif aktivistler ve bilimi seven teknokratlarla dolu bir hikayeyi anlatıyor. Amerikan standart ölçüm sistemi ezoterik ve tutarsız standardlarıyla benzersiz tuhaflıkta bir sistem.Öyleyse Amerikalılar neden hala bu sistemi kullanıyor? Bu sorunun cevabı için Fransa'ya bakmak gerekir. Marciano, ölçüm sistemlerinin kökenini anlatırken, Avrupa çapındaki standartdaki bir dizi değişimden,  Amerikan'ın 13 kolonisinden, Fransız Devrimi sonrasında, Fransa'daki ölçüm sisteminin oluşmasıyla sonuçlanan akıl ve durum kombinasyonundan ve Amerika'nın geleneksel sisteme sadakatle bağlılığından söz ediyor.

Ekli dosyada eserin ms'si bulunmakta. İliglenen yayıncılarımıza duyurulur.



Marciano, best known as an illustrator and author of popular children's books (Madeline at the White House, 2011, etc.), delves into the political ramifications of the American and French revolutions on the adoption of the metric system.
The author begins with Thomas Jefferson, who had just witnessed the approval of his proposal to replace British currency with an American national currency based upon a decimal version of the Spanish dollar. “Jefferson wanted to take the radical step of dividing the coin by tenths, hundredths, and thousandths—decimal fractions,” writes Marciano. “It was a thing no other nation in the world had ever entirely achieved, not with coins or any other measure.” Tasked by Congress to tackle the broader subject of establishing a uniform system of weights and measures, Jefferson presented one but urged that it not be accepted until it was clear what would be decided in France, where leaders were discussing similar issues. Marciano explains how many different political and cultural issues converged in the question of measurement. In America, the need for a uniform national coinage was obvious, but weights and measures were fairly uniform throughout the former colonies. Not so in France, which employed as many as “250,000 different measures.” The revolutionary demand for uniform taxation and the abolition of the special privileges of the three estates (aristocracy, clergy and king) necessitated a comprehensive overhaul of measurements.
The French Revolution gave birth to the metric system as we know it today, but Jefferson's hope that America and France would lead the world in jointly adopting a new universal standard of measurement has yet to be realized. However, this is not a problem. “[W]e now live in an age where the villain has become uniformity,” writes Marciano; with the advent of the digital age, measurements are now easily convertible.
A lively perspective on globalism as it relates to currency and systems of measurement.

Author and illustrator Marciano (The Nine Lives of Alexander Baddenfield) reconsiders 200 years of history against the backdrop of a struggle to create a uniform system of measurement for the world. He addresses the origins of multiple forms of money, wet and dry measures, and figures for weight and distance, offering lively anecdotes about such problems as paying taxes in bushels of grain when the tax collector controls the size of a bushel. In that instance, what seemed an arcane issue resulted in the French Revolution, and that break from the ancien régime provided the opportunity to reconstitute all units of measurement, down to the hours in the day—though opposition arose as to the size of a meter, gram, and liter. From the founding of the U.S., there was a movement to go metric, but it was doomed by political and commercial resistance; the U.S. remains, alongside Liberia and Myanmar, one of only three nations in the world to use a different system. Readers will see a different side of metric enthusiasts—including Napoleon and Thomas Jefferson
—as Marciano uncovers the relationship between metric system advocates and social reform movements. Marciano writes with humor and a keen eye, and his fascinating tales reveal how extensively measurement has affected history.
​ohn Bemelmans Marciano tells an unexpectedly rich tale spanning three centuries, the American and French revolutions, and the emergence of modern Europe. How could the United States be the first large nation to decimalize currency and almost nothing else? The continued use of the foot, the gallon, the pound, and the bushel, in spite of practice in the rest of the world, and in spite of the w​ishes of the nation's founding fathers and subsequent generations of leaders, sheds new light on American exceptionalism. A great read."
​Donal O'Shea, author of THE POINCARE CONJECTURE

​"Engagingly tells the tragicomic story of how two hundred years ago the United States led the world in adopting a decimal currency, but now lags behind the world in adopting decimal weights and measures, and how many Americans are proud of this stubbornness."
​John Horton Conway, author of ON NUMBERS AND GAMES

​"In this clever and easy-to-read history, John Marciano offers a convincing explanation of why America is out of step...Rich in riveting stories, this is an intriguing and informative book."
 ​John Ferlin, author of JEFFERSON AND HAMILTON: The Rivalry That Forged a Nation​

ohn Bemelmans Marciano is the author and illustrator of many books, including the distinctive reference titles Anonyponymous and Toponymity, as well as the children’s books Madeline at the White House (a New York Times bestseller), Madeline and the Cats of Rome, and Harold’s Tail.
