Ofer Sharone

Today 4.7 million Americans have been unemployed for more than six months. In France more than ten percent of the working population is without work. In Israel it’s above seven percent. And in Greece and Spain, that number approaches thirty percent. Across the developed world, the experience of unemployment has become frighteningly common—and so are the seemingly endless tactics that job seekers employ in their quest for new work. Flawed System/Flawed Self delves beneath these staggering numbers to explore the world of job searching and unemployment across class and nation. Through in-depth interviews and observations at job-search support organizations, Ofer Sharone reveals how different labor-market institutions give rise to job-search games like Israel’s résumé-based “spec games”—which are focused on presenting one’s skills to fit the job—and the “chemistry games” more common in the United States in which job seekers concentrate on presenting the person behind the résumé. By closely examining the specific day-to-day activities and strategies of searching for a job, Sharone develops a theory of the mechanisms that connect objective social structures and subjective experiences in this challenging environment and shows how these different structures can lead to very different experiences of unemployment.

Tracy Wolff

The bestselling Ethan Frost series introduces a tantalizing new hero—and the broken woman only he can save. Discover why Beth Kery once declared that readers of Tracy Wolff will “fall in love under the spell of a master.” When Tori Reed loses everything, he sets her free. I told myself I’d never trust Miles Girard, no matter how brilliant or sexy he may be. His sister, Chloe—Ethan Frost’s wife—is my best friend, but I know just how low Miles will stoop to get what he wants. Now he’s the last thing I want: my boss. Growing up, I had it all—except for the sense that I belonged. And when a mistake from my past surfaces in the press, my parents don’t hesitate to cut me off. But surprisingly, Miles offers me a helping hand. Before I know it, our relationship turns unprofessional in the hottest ways. Of course, he still drives me crazy. But when I’m dealt the ultimate blow, Miles is there for me. And maybe he’s the one I’ve been looking for all along. Praise for Flawed “This is the kind of romance you devour in one sitting. It’s addictive, sensual and worthy of any contemporary-lover’s library.”—RT Book Reviews “[In Wolff’s] fun fourth contemporary, linked to her Ethan Frost trilogy, a socialite fallen on hard times gets an unexpected hand up.”—Publishers Weekly “Readers of Wolff’s Ethan Frost series (Ruined; Addicted; Exposed) will enjoy this well-written glimpse into the lives of some of the series’ other characters and follow-up on Chloe and Ethan. Tori is a strong but vulnerable character that readers will enjoy getting to know.”—Library Journal “Thanks, Ms. Wolff, for another amazing Ethan Frost book!”—Words We Love By “This is my first Tracy Wolff novel. . . .

The banter immediately got my attention and had me eager to see how this couple would come together.”—Alpha Book Club “If you are looking for a funny, romantic steam read, then I suggest this book. You do not need to read the other ones [in the series] as this works as a standalone, but I recommend it.”—Booksmacked “This is the kind of romance you devour in one sitting. It’s addictive, sensual and worthy of any contemporary-lover’s library.”—RT Book Reviews “Flawed by Tracy Wolff was a hot sexy read.”—Books & Boys Book Blog “Fan me down, new bbf on the shelf called Miles Girard.

He is remembered best for Beau Geste, a much-filmed book of 1924, involving the French Foreign Legion in North Africa. This was one of 33 novels and short story collections that he wrote, mostly dealing with colonial soldiering in Africa. While his fictional accounts of life in the pre-1914 Foreign Legion are highly romanticized, his details of Legion uniforms, training, equipment and barrack room layout are generally accurate, which has led to unproven suggestions that Wren himself served with the legion.
