Les dessinateurs et les dessinatrices du New Yorker épinglent avec malice les tribulations de la vie à table : les repas en famille ou en amoureux, les pauses-café et les déjeuners sur le pouce, les dîners chics et les serveurs chocs, les hommes, les femmes, les enfants, les vegans ou les carnivores et même les animaux !
Pour ces 10 ans, la collection du New Yorker fait peau neuve. Cet album comportera également 8 cartes postales illustrées.
It will wither on the wine (ça va tourner en eau de boudin), C'est du lard ou du cochon? (Do you know where you are with it?). Décidément, depuis 3 ans que le Brexit a été voté, on n'a toujours pas compris ce que voulaient vraiment les Anglais! Jean-Loup Chiflet revient sur cette situation inextricable grâce à 150 expressions qui nous parlent d'indécision, d'échec, de farce, etc. Une bonne façon d'apprendre les expression idiomatiques anglaises les plus courantes !

If you want to succeed here you must be able to handle the English sense of humour.
So proclaims George Mikes' timeless exploration of this curious phenomenon. Whether it's understatement, self-deprecation or plain cruelty, the three elements he identifies as essential to our sense of humour, being witty here is a way of life. Perfectly placed as an adopted Englishman himself, Mikes delivers his shrewd advice - helpfully divided into 'Theory' and 'Practice' - with a comic precision that does his chosen country proud. Drawing on a trove of examples from our rich comic canon, from Orwell ("Every joke is a tiny revolution") to Oscar Wilde, this is the essential handbook for natives and foreigners alike. Mrs Kennedy: "I don't think, Mr Churchill, that I have told you anything about my grandchildren." Winston Churchill: "For which, madam, I am infinitely grateful."

* From the writer and executive producer of the award-winning Netflix series The Good Place that made moral philosophy fun: a foolproof guide to making the correct moral decision in every situation you ever encounter, anywhere on earth, forever * How can we live a more ethical life? This question has plagued people for thousands of years, but it''s never been tougher to answer than it is now, thanks to challenges great and small that flood our day-to-day lives and threaten to overwhelm us with impossible decisions and complicated results with unintended consequences. Plus, being anything close to an ''ethical person'' requires daily thought and introspection and hard work; we have to think about how we can be good not, you know, once a month, but literally all the time . To make it a little less overwhelming, this fascinating, accessible and funny book by one of our generation''s best writers and adept minds in television comedy, Michael Schur, boils down the whole confusing morass with real life dilemmas (from ''should I punch my friend in the face for no reason?'' to ''can I still enjoy great art if it was created by terrible people?), so that we know how to deal with ethical dilemmas. Much as Chidi used humour and philosophy to make Eleanor a less selfish person, Schur takes us on a journey through the 2500-year discussion of ethics, explaining and poking fun at these grand ideas, and sketching a roadmap for how we ought to act. By the time the book is done, we''ll know exactly how to act in every conceivable situation, so as to produce a verifiably maximal amount of moral good. We will be perfect, and all our friends will be jealous. OK, not quite. Instead, we''ll gain fresh, funny, inspiring wisdom on the toughest issues we face every day With contributions from Professor Todd May of Clemson University, who served as an advisor on The Good Place, this is a brilliant, clever and hugely entertaining about one of the most important topics in the world. ''The problem is, if all you care about in the world is the velvet rope, you will always be unhappy, no matter which side you''re on.'' - Tahani Al-Jamil, The Good Place
