This psychological thriller dissects online relationships, offering a stunning indictment of the way society perceives women in contrast to men when age comes into play. This is the story of Claire Millecam, a forty-eight-year-old teacher and divorcée who creates a fake social media profile to keep tabs on Joe, her occasional, elusive, and inconstant lover. Under the false identity of Claire Antunes, a young and beautiful twenty-four-year-old, she starts a correspondence with Chris—pseudonym KissChris—which soon turns into an Internet love affair. A Dangerous Liaisons for our times, Who You Think I Am exposes the disconnect between fantasy and reality. Social media allows us to put ourselves on display, to indulge in secrets, but above all to lie, to recreate a life, to become our own fiction—magnifying and manipulating...

In the mid-1990s, an American teenager, named Lao K in Chinese, stands on Coal Hill, a park in Beijing, a loop of rope in her hand.

How to Behave in a Crowd is beautifully narrated from the point of view of Isidore Mazal, the youngest of six overachieving siblings in a big, eccentric family living in a small French town. Isidore doesn't quite fit in with his precocious, emotionally stunted siblings. Berenice, Aurore, and Leonard are on track to have doctorates by age twenty-four. Jeremie performs with a symphony, and Simone, older than Isidore by only eighteen months, expects a great career as a novelist. In fact, she has already put Isidore to work on her biography. The only time they leave their rooms is to gather on the old, stained couch and dissect...
