Embrasser mon boss ? Certainement pas ! À 27 ans, Mona Vargas est encore célibataire, au grand désespoir de sa mère. Chaque dimanche, c’est la même sérénade : cette dernière cherche à lui coller un mec dans les pattes ! Alors quand son boss, Hugo Capelli, aussi horripilant que sexy, lui demande de jouer sa fausse fiancée et de l’accompagner à la garden-party organisée par son ex en l’honneur de sa nouvelle histoire d’amour, elle décide d’accepter. À une condition : qu’il consente à se faire passer pour son petit ami auprès de sa famille. Avec lui, pas d'ambiguïté, puisqu’ils n’ont rien en commun ! Il est aussi sûr de lui, arrogant et égocentré qu’elle est désintéressée et dévouée ! Et surtout, en tant que son patron, il lui est interdit ! Rien en commun ? Peut-être… mais ne dit-on pas que les contraires s’attirent ? Entre fausse relation et vrais sentiments, il n’y a qu’un pas… *** Sitôt les portes de la cabine d’ascenseur ouvertes, je m’engouffre à l’intérieur, lorsque j’aperçois Hugo, mon boss, franchir les portes automatiques du palier, son téléphone en main, un léger sourire sur les lèvres. Mon cœur bondit. Il est si beau. À chaque fois que je pose les yeux sur lui, je le trouve encore plus attirant, encore plus séduisant. Il porte une cravate foncée sur son éternelle chemise blanche, et une veste gris anthracite qui met en valeur son teint légèrement hâlé. Avec sa courte barbe parfaitement taillée, ses cheveux en arrière qui portent la marque de ses doigts, il est sublime. Je m’abîme dans la contemplation de mon écran pour répondre à Barca que je suis ravie et impatiente de discuter avec lui. Je lui souhaite également une bonne journée, tout en ayant une intime conscience de Hugo se dirigeant vers moi de son pas martial. Et plus je le sens approcher, plus mon cœur accélère. Le virtuel, c’est bien, c’est excitant, mais le réel, si j’en crois l’emballement de mon rythme cardiaque, c’est mille fois mieux, mille fois plus intense. – Bonjour, mademoiselle Vargas ! Et punaise, cette voix… Je lève la tête, feins la surprise : – Oh, euh… bonjour, monsieur Capelli. Je prie intérieurement pour que mon souffle un peu court ne me trahisse pas. J’observe sa main aux doigts longs et soignés appuyer sur le bouton de notre étage. Je l’imagine aussitôt sur moi, j’imagine ses caresses sur ma peau. Nos yeux se croisent. Un peu trop longuement, jusqu’à ce que je rompe le contact, avec l’impression que mes joues sont déjà en feu. Et pas que mes joues. C’est pas vrai ! Je ne peux pas le regarder ou être proche de lui sans fantasmer sur ce que sa bouche sur la mienne, ses mains sur ma peau, ses doigts en moi me procureraient. Mes hormones bouillonnent, mon sexe frémit. J’aimerais engager la conversation, mais j’en suis incapable. Je sens son regard sur moi, un regard pesant, qui, comme hier, me déshabille. *** Say Yes to the Boss, d'Ana Scott, histoire intégrale.

The author, a banker for over three decades has many boyhood friends who had served public sector undertakings and corporate behemoths reaching higher echelons. After reading the author’s literary effort, Banking Humour, they contended that humour is not the monopoly of the bankers; it is all pervasive and all-encompassing, and the corporate world is not an exception. They gleefully recounted incidents to convince the author that they too had generated humour without ever claiming to be humorous. They opined, “It is easier to talk to people with a sense of humour, and a shared sense of humour is binding.” The twenty-five incidents narrated are their contributions and are true in essence. However, let it be kept in mind that humour is not an absolute truth, but the truth in an exaggerated form.

In the era of globalisation, studies of migration focus on mobility, deterritorialised identities and diasporic forms of belonging across nation state boundaries. Indeed, uprootedness from the soil of home and place has resulted in a general condition of ‘homelessness’ in late modernity, referred to as the diasporic condition. This study explores the construction of home amongst immigrants from Hadchit and their descendants in Australia and America and shows how their strategies of home-building depend upon the capacity to imagine themselves as being united by kinship, a shared village of origins and as part of the broader communal Maronite identity (Mwarne), which now transcends nation state boundaries. Patrilineage (bayt), village (day’aa) and sect (ta’eefa) have historically defined Lebanese sectarian identities and now, as this study shows, are deployed as a strategy of home-building and community construction in diaspora. However, capitalist social relations of production in Australia and America have transformed bayt, day’aa and ta’eefa amongst the second, third and fourth generations through the gendered renegotiation of the marriage contract from relations of descent to relations of consent. Thus, the Hadchitis now face a crisis of (re)production and attribute this, in the case of Australia, to the state being hukum niswen, ruled by women, an inversion of the gendered order of power in Lebanon. Through pilgrimages to the ancestral village, however, émigrés seek a spiritual resolution to the contradictions of migration through the restoration of their connection to place, but find they cannot seamlessly belong in Hadchit. Meanwhile, multicultural crisis and a milieu of anti-Lebanese racism limit their claims to national belonging in Australia and America. This study finds, therefore, that the contradictions of the migration process are unresolvable through physical mobility, because the feeling of ‘home’ is a metaphysical state of being, which transcends place and is defined by its affective, social and spiritual dimensions. The elusive quality that defines home and provides a sense of unconditional belonging is, in fact, socially constructed by women, through their daily practices of care within the home and the most important woman for the construction of homeliness is the matriarch, sit el bayt—the power of the house. Thus, the place where the immigrant can be at home is metaphorically at their ‘mother’s table.’

Barbara A. Res worked directly with Donald Trump for eighteen years on some of his biggest projects and had nearly unlimited access to him. Trump selected Res to be in charge of construction of Trump Tower, his greatest success as a developer. In this insider’s look at how the ambitious real estate developer became the most divisive president in recent U.S. history, Res takes us into closed-door meetings, boardrooms, limo rides, and helicopter flights to really understand what makes him tick and show us why his claim to be a great dealmaker and savvy businessman is just a mirage. No one with this kind of access to Trump during his formative years as a developer has ever written so completely about who he is away from the cameras. It’s no wonder that when the media are looking for someone who really understands Trump, they turn to Res. Candid, personal, and deeply perceptive, Res shines new light on the man whose depravity has put us all—and democracy itself—in danger. Includes a 16-page photo insert featuring images from the author's personal collection.
