My Life in Red and White by Arsene Wenger

Language: English
In My Life in Red and White, Wenger charts his extraordinary career, including his rise in France and Japan where he managed Nancy, Monaco and Nagoya Grampus Eight (clubs that also play in red-and-white, like Arsenal!) to his 22 years at the helm of the internationally renowned club from 1996 onwards. He also shares his leadership principles for success on and off the field and recalls vivid tales of guiding Arsenal to unprecedented success.

Autour de Ton Cou by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Language: French
The Thing Around Your Neck published in 2009 is a short story collection by the award-winning and critically acclaimed Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. The stories focus on the life experiences of Africans, the culture-clash problems of Nigerian-Americans, and on the universal human issues of relationships and interaction. Adichie’s realistic style of writing whilst addressing dark storylines is firmly brilliant and laced with humour.


Language: French
From Katherine Pancol, a modern French writer who has sold millions of book copies translated into 30 languages, comes the first part in a series “Muchachas”.

From New York to Paris, from Burgundy to London or to Miami. Girls who invent, get passionate, fall in love. Girls fighting for life. And men? They also feature. But the girls are the ones who create their destiny, alter their future. And that never ends.

The Calculus Affair

Language: English

The legendary Tintin! In this new adventure, Tintin returns to Syldavia and Borduria. After inventing the ultrasound machine, Professor Calculus is kidnapped. Jolyon Wagg, an insurance sales rep, makes his entrance in this story and will prove to be a constant nuisance. A thrilling chase, surprises, old friends getting back together, headlong fights… all this for a stake in what seems to be limited to an ordinary umbrella. This is probably the most “detective-like” story.
