A woman’s – or man’s – total package isn’t only about what you look like. Keli Lenﬁﾞeld learned this lesson firsthand when her Paris modelling agent placed her on an unhealthy diet of orange juice and water. Since then, she has fought to make “diet” a naughty word in her vocabulary and yours. “For whatever reason, we all have something about ourselves we don't like. I figure this is one of the cons of being part of the human race,” she writes in her first book, Everyone Is A Supermodel: Secrets For Any Career Based On My Modelling Experiences. “How we were born gets painted, prodded, wax, buffed and injected to either look like someone else or believe we will be happier when we look in the mirror.” But there is more to making it in life than a body confidence pep talk. You need to impress a potential boss, prepare a positive social media image, craft an impeccable resume and nail a job interview. Invited to an impromptu event where you’ll network further? You need to be ready for that too. Readers can count on additional advice from successful industry professionals, such as Marie Claire Australia’s national advertising manager Anne-Marie Clarke, popular turntable goddess DJ Dakota and London-based PR executive Nicole Crowley.
A collection of professional tips and advice on style, fashion, and beauty draws on the experiences of such industry stars as Victoria Nixon, Helena Christensen, Christy Turlington, and Jerry Hall. Original.

Based on his widely read columns for The New Yorker, Ian Frazier's uproarious first novel, The Cursing Mommy's Book of Days, centers on a profoundly memorable character, sprung from an impressively fertile imagination. Structured as a daybook of sorts, the book follows the Cursing Mommy—beleaguered wife of Larry and mother of two boys, twelve and eight—as she tries (more or less) valiantly to offer tips on how to do various tasks around the home, only to end up on the ground, cursing, surrounded by broken glass. Her voice is somewhere between Phyllis Diller's and Sylvia Plath's: a hilariously desperate housewife with a taste for swearing and large glasses of red wine, who speaks to the frustrations of everyday life. Frazier has demonstrated an astonishing ability to operate with ease in a variety of registers: from On the Rez, an investigation into the lives of modern day Oglala Sioux written with a mix of humor, compassion, and imagination, to Dating Your Mom, a sidesplitting collection of humorous essays that imagines, among other things, how and why you might begin a romance with your mother. Here, Frazier tackles another genre with his usual grace and aplomb, as well as an extra helping of his trademark wicked wit. The Cursing Mommy's failures and weaknesses are our own—and Frazier gives them a loving, satirical spin that is uniquely his own.

Epic poems need epic heroes—divine, fantastic creatures, whose larger than life exploits project the spirit of an age. Homer’s had Odysseus, Dante’s Beatrice, and now David Breskin has bequeathed our celebrity-obsessed era its very own form-fitting “Supermodel.” Loosely inspired by the story of tsunami survivor Petra Nemcova, the heroine of Supermodel is an outsized force of nature: fiercely competitive, intellectually curious, emotionally wounded, resolutely moral, and of course, ravishingly attractive — a globe-trotting innocent who exudes sexuality in every way...except the most obvious. As she literally clings to life, her story is revealed in a series of flashbacks which wing us from Middle East to Wild West, desert to tropics, country to city — all vividly described, in potent couplets, as paradises found and lost. Breskin peppers this dark comedy with unsettling wordplay, shrewd social commentary, and a reporter’s acute eye for the facts of life: his virtuosic writing matches the breathless pace and rich complexity of his heroine's travails. Even as Breskin relates his supermodel’s tale, his story is matched by strangely salient scrolls of ‘found poetry’ culled from web sites. This new feat of literary dovetailing creates a sublime surprise: the first epic poem of the Internet Age.
