Startup

Doree Shafrir
Authors:
Doree Shafrir

A hilarious debut novel by a BuzzFeed culture writer about the difficulties of real life connection in the heart of New York City's tech world.While Silicon Valley likes to think of itself as the epicenter of the tech universe, New York attracts its fair share of ambitious entrepreneurs determined to make their mark. Among them are Mack McAllister, the it-boy visionary of the moment trying to take his app to the next level; Isabel, a social media ninja working for him a bit too closely; and Katya, an ambitious Russian emigre journalist desperate for a scoop. When a scandal erupts in the lower Manhattan loft building where all three work, they quickly discover just how small a world the Big Apple's tech community can be. Doree Shafrir's debut is a sharp, hugely entertaining story of youth, ambition, love, money and technology's inability to hack human nature.

Make Trouble

John Waters
Authors:
John Waters

So what if you have talent? Then what?When John Waters delivered his gleefully subversive advice to the graduates of the Rhode Island School of Design, the speech went viral, in part because it was so brilliantly on point about making a living as a creative person. Now we can all enjoy his sly wisdom in a manifesto that reminds us, no matter what field we choose, to embrace chaos, be nosy, and outrage our critics.Anyone embarking on a creative path, he tells us, would do well to realize that pragmatism and discipline are as important as talent and that rejection is nothing to fear. Waters advises young people to eavesdrop, listen to their enemies, and horrify us with new ideas. In other words, MAKE TROUBLE!Illustrated with slightly demented line drawings by Eric Hanson, Make Trouble is a one-of-a-kind gift, the perfect playbook for gaming the system by making the system work for you.

Vicky Jacob-Ebbinghaus, Juarez Rodrigues

Husband-and-wife design team Vicky Jacob-Ebbinghaus and Juarez Rodrigues set up their hugely popular website eatingfortwocookbook.com when they started interviewing pregnant women on their strangest cravings.They 'cooked', tasted, rated and photographed each discovery, giving it the look of haute cuisine and a similarly fancy-sounding name. When they posted these creations on their blog, the crowd went wild with reposts and tags. More and more pregnant women submitted their cravings for the 'Vicki and Juarez treatment' and soon media pundits were raving. Pickles and Ice Cream feature 75 almost- never-before-seen recipes, uniquely beautiful (even if their appeal as food might be questionable) photographs of the recipes, along with the stories of the pregnant women who dreamed them up.
