Despite the apparent dangers of being an unwanted visitor in the kitchen of one of Paris' most exclusive restaurants, Remy forms an unlikely partnership with Linguini, the garbage boy, who inadvertently discovers Remy's amazing talents. They strike a deal, ultimately setting into motion a chain of extraordinary events that turns the culinary world of Paris upside down
I'll be gone in the dark : one woman's obsessive search for the Golden State Killer by Michelle McNamara( Book )

6 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 1,978 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Introduction by Gillian Flynn Afterword by Patton Oswalt "I'll Be Gone in the Dark will undoubtedly be stocked in the True Crime section, which is fine, but in so many ways it's a brilliant genre-buster. It's propulsive, can't-stop-now reading, which makes it all too easy to ignore the clean and focused writing. What readers need to know?what makes this book so special?is that it deals with two obsessions, one light and one dark. The Golden State Killer is the dark half; Michelle McNamara's is the light half. It's a journey into two minds, one sick and disordered, the other intelligent and determined. I loved this book."?Stephen King A masterful true crime account of the Golden State Killer?the elusive serial rapist turned murderer who terrorized California for over a decade?from Michelle McNamara, the gifted journalist who died tragically while investigating the case. "You'll be silent forever, and I'll be gone in the dark." For more than ten years, a mysterious and violent predator committed fifty sexual assaults in Northern California before moving south, where he perpetrated ten sadistic murders. Then he disappeared, eluding capture by multiple police forces and some of the best detectives in the area. Three decades later, Michelle McNamara, a true crime journalist who created the popular website TrueCrimeDiary.com, was determined to find the violent psychopath she called "the Golden State Killer." Michelle pored over police reports, interviewed victims, and embedded herself in the online communities that were as obsessed with the case as she was. At the time of the crimes, the Golden State Killer was between the ages of eighteen and thirty, Caucasian, and athletic?capable of vaulting tall fences. He always wore a mask. After choosing a victim?he favored suburban couples?he often entered their home when no one was there, studying family pictures, mastering the layout. He attacked while they slept, using a flashlight to awaken and blind them. Though they could not recognize him, his victims recalled his voice: a guttural whisper through clenched teeth, abrupt and threatening. I'll Be Gone in the Dark?the masterpiece McNamara was writing at the time of her sudden death?offers an atmospheric snapshot of a moment in American history and a chilling account of a criminal mastermind and the wreckage he left behind. It is also a portrait of a woman's obsession and her unflagging pursuit of the truth. Framed by an introduction by Gillian Flynn and an afterword by her husband, Patton Oswalt, the book was completed by Michelle's lead researcher and a close colleague. Utterly original and compelling, it is destined to become a true crime classic?and may at last unmask the Golden State Killer

Courage is contagious : and other reasons to be grateful for Michelle Obama by Nicholas Haramis( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A collection of essays celebrating the influential former first lady, by an array of acclaimed contributors and with a foreword by Lena Dunham. Michelle Obama's legacy transcends categorization. Mrs. Obama was not only our first black first lady; she was President Obama's equal partner in marriage and parenthood and a tireless advocate for women's rights, education, healthy eating, and exercise. Her genre-busting personal style encouraged others to speak, to engage, even to dress as they wished. In an extension of his popular T, the New York Times Style Magazine feature, Nick Haramis has assembled nineteen essays from prizewinning writers, Hollywood stars, and political leaders--all of whom have been moved and influenced by Mrs. Obama's extraordinary example of grace in power. Here are original testimonials from Gloria Steinem, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Alice Waters, and Charlamagne the God, among others. Presidential biographer Jon Meacham supplies historical perspective. Actress Tracee Ellis Ross suggests that Mrs. Obama 'provided an antidote to all the false representations of black women that have inundated us for centuries.' Anna Wintour and designer Jason Wu celebrate the former first lady's impact as an international fashion icon. Two ninth-grade girls--one in training to be a boxer--talk about how Mrs. Obama has emboldened them to be themselves. Here are some of the many facets of Michelle Obama as she continues to inspire us, a stirring reminder that the best of America once lived in the White House, embodied in one authentic, inclusive, and courageous woman.--Jacket flap
