Intrepid, eccentric Gillette plans to solve the case himself a la Sherlock Holmes.

There are moments when you'll jump. Guaranteed."- The Telegraph "A Sherlock Holmes whodunnit kind of mystery packed with suspects and tinged with suspense and laughter."-London Times

من الكتاب: " "لأنه كان قد بلغ 70 عاما، ولأن قدميه ما عادتا تستطيعان حمله، ولأنه لم يكن يقدر أن يعيش دون أن يلعب بالألوان، فإن هنري ماتيس ثبّت قلم فحم في عصا طويلة، وراح وهو نائم في سريره يرسم، بكل تهور الأطفال، على حيطان الغرفة. ولأنه لم يعد له أب أو أم أو أخ كبير، فلم يقل له أحد: "ولد يا هنري، سنقص لك أصابعك كفاية، أنت وسخت الحيطان." أبي، هو الآخر، فنان كبير أكره قوس قزح. أخاف منه. أخبئ عيني في المرات النادرة التي يلون فيها وجه السماء. أحمر. أزرق. أخضر. أصفر. برتقالي.
بنفسجي. كنت الطفل الوحيد في العالم الذي يكره قوس قزح. أبي كان يمسك دائما خيزرانة. لم أره أبدا من دون خيزرانة. كأنها إصبع طويل نابت في يده. وسيلة التفاهم مع الكلاب، والبهائم، و.... أمي. تفك ملابسها لتستحم. تقف، بجسمها السمين، في الطشت، وتريني آثار الضربات. أحمر. أزرق. أخضر.
أصفر. برتقالي. بنفسجي.
أقواس قزح صغيرة تملأ ظهرها وكتفها أبي هو الآخر، فنان كبير. يرسم، بعصاه، رسوما ملونة على لحم أمي. أكره قوس قزح. أكره الأحمر.
البرتقالي. البنفسجي وأحب السواد!"
There has been a people's revolt against the way the West has been run. Brexit, Trump, the recent British and French elections saw millions of people shouting that they were sick to death of things never getting better. In WTF Robert Peston gives us his highly personal account of what those who have ruled us for years got so badly wrong, and what we need to do to mend the terrible fractures in our society. Peston wrote WTF because the elections of Trump, the Corbyn surge, the vote for Brexit all challenged how he thought the world could and should be run. With characteristic passion and clarity he looks at how and whether it is possible to make a success of leaving the EU, what the ons should be of the appalling Grenfell Tower tragedy, whether robots can be stopped from taking our work, what can be done to staunch the widening gap between rich and poor, how to raise living standards for all, and what must happen to prevent democracy being subverted by technocratic geniuses with the ability to manipulate social media. These are the challenges of our age, because the combination of economic stagnation and a technological revolution is killing jobs, enriching the few and undermining the institutions we used to trust as the foundations of the state. What and who can we believe when it is almost impossible to know whether posts on Facebook and Twitter are hard news or the fabrication of a Russian agent? As in his bestsellers, WHO RUNS BRITAIN? and HOW DO WE FIX THIS MESS?, Robert Peston draws on his years of experience as a political, economics and business journalist, to show us what has gone bad, and gives us a manifesto to put at least some of it right. WTF is a trenchant, often entertaining account of the recent past. It is also a call to action, giving hope to all of us who believe that taking back control is not only vital, but possible.

Rubin, Jr. calls this “the life work of a master poet.” He comments: “These poems don’t date; they represent no outmoded school or clique . . . and the new poems have a simplicity about them that does not hide so much as it enhances their rich imaginativeness and wealth of imagery. These are the poems of a man of great sensitivity and an exciting imagination and command of the language.”
