I Love You Always

Written by Astrid Desbordes | Illustrated by Pauline Martin | Translated by Noelia Hobeika | Little Gestalten | April 26, 2016

With the simple question “Mom, will you love me my whole life?”, Max sparks the most honest and relatable of answers from his mother, who goes on to tell her son about all the moments in life through which she loves him.

“I love you when you behave and when your good behavior doesn’t last” and “I love you when you look your best and when you’re feeling your worst” are some of the scenes author Astrid Desbordes and illustrator Pauline Martin succeed in depicting with heartwarming candidness. A refreshing take on a timeless subject, I Love You Always beautifully recounts a mother’s unconditional love for her child.

"Martin’s delicate cartooning brings humor to life’s ups and downs ... helping deliver Desbordes’s reassuring message with a light touch." --Publisher's Weekly

Hervé Guibert’s brief, literary rumination on photography was written in response to Roland Barthes’s Camera Lucida, but its deeply personal contents go far beyond that canonical text.

In the wake of the Paris, San Bernadino, and Brussels terrorist attacks, fears over “homegrown terrorism” have surfaced to a degree not seen since September 11, 2001—especially following the news that all of the perpetrators in Paris were European citizens. A sought-after commentator in France and a widely respected international scholar of radical Islam, Farhad Khosrokhavar has spent years studying the path toward radicalization, focusing particularly on the key role of prisons as incubators of a particular brand of outrage that has yielded so many attacks over the past decade.
