Underground Sketchbook

Underground Sketchbook

Originally published in 1964, Tomi Ungerer’s infamous Underground Sketchbook became a notorious aesthetic talisman among in-the-know cartoonists and fan connoisseurs, revered for its audacious visual wit and coruscating and absurdist humor, spoken about with awe among the tribe of cartooning lovers. It is the first book in which the award-winning children’s book illustrator let loose, a blast of social commentary, dada-esque observations, and existential angst. Jonathan Miller, in his introduction to the original book, described the work as “an iconography of this bewildering, centrifugal universe. Ungerer illustrates a world where things are coming apart, where the old unquestioned entities are at best provisional arrangements, loosely thrown together and never to be relied upon.” Sound familiar? Underground Sketchbook is, among other things, a relentless rage against avarice, unfettered consumerism, alienation, the exploitation of everything, the mechanization of human experience, and the public acquiescence to the worst instincts that fuel a modern economy — as timely now as it was then, if not moreso. This is as powerful a dose of visual ingenuity, moral outrage, and bemused disgust at the human comedy that you are ever likely to experience by an artist of international renown.

Un thriller cauchemardesque entre Ça et Angel Heart... Dans l'Amérique des années Reagan, sept étudiants idéalistes deviennent les meilleurs amis du monde. Leur petite bande de joyeux contestataires a pour nom "Underground". Ils savent qu'à la fin de leurs études chacun suivra sa propre voie. Alors, à l'approche de la remise des diplômes, ils s'offrent une ultime fiesta... à Custis Manor : la sinistre plantation leur tend les bras pour une dernière nuit de réjouissances. Mais de l'autre côté des miroirs du vieux manoir sudiste, quelque chose les attend - une force corrompue, vorace, ni tout à fait vivante, ni vraiment morte. Un esprit inhumain qui a consacré plus de deux cents ans à cultiver ses terribles pouvoirs. Bilan de cette nuit de terreur : un mort et un disparu. Les survivants, marqués à vie, ont toujours refusé d'admettre la réalité des événements survenus cette fameuse nuit. Or aujourd'hui, près de vingt ans après les faits, l'un d'entre eux est repassé de l'autre côté du miroir, et ses anciens amis vont devoir faire face aux démons de leur passé...

The Truffle Underground

The Truffle Underground

“The ultimate truffle true crime tale”*: A thrilling journey through the hidden underworld of the world's most prized luxury ingredient. *Bianca Bosker, New York Times bestselling author of Cork Dork Beneath the gloss of star chefs and crystal-laden tables, the truffle supply chain is touched by theft, secrecy, sabotage, and fraud. Farmers patrol their fields with rifles and fear losing trade secrets to spies. Hunters plant poisoned meatballs to eliminate rival truffle-hunting dogs. Naive buyers and even knowledgeable experts are duped by liars and counterfeits. Deeply reported and elegantly written, this page-turning exposé documents the dark, sometimes deadly crimes at each level of the truffle’s path from ground to plate, making sense of an industry that traffics in scarcity, seduction, and cash. Through it all, a question lingers: What, other than money, draws people to these dirt-covered jewels? Praise for The Truffle Underground “Investigative journalist and first-time author Jacobs does a remarkable job reporting from the front lines of the truffle industry, bringing to vivid life French black-truffle farmers, Italian white-truffle foragers, and their marvelously well-trained dogs.”—Booklist (starred review) “In The Truffle Underground, Ryan Jacobs presents a lively exposé of the truffle industry, reporting on the crimes that ‘haunt the whole supply chain.’ . . . Even if truffles are beyond your pay grade, there is plenty of enjoyment to be had in the sheer devilment portrayed in this informative and appetizing book.”—The Wall Street Journal “You’ll never look at truffle fries the same way after reading this book. . . . You can practically smell the soil as you follow truffle farmers and bandits through the groves and fields of France and Italy where the fungi are harvested and stolen.”—Outside, “Five Favorite Summer Reads” “[The] book is a rigorously reported, carefully written, endlessly interesting immersion in a high-stakes subculture.”—San Francisco Chronicle “Jacobs takes us on an eye-opening journey through the prized mushroom’s supply chain and the global black market for these tubers in this tale of theft, deceit, and high-stakes secrets.”—Real Simple
