Dana Thomas, author of
Gods and Kings:
The Rise and Fall of Alexander McQueen and John Galliano

More than two decades ago, John Galliano and Alexander McQueen arrived on the fashions scene when the business was in an artistic and economic rut. Both wanted to revolutionize fashion in a way no one had in decades. They shook the establishment out of its bourgeois, minimalist stupor with daring, sexy designs. They turned out landmark collections in mesmerizing, theatrical shows that retailers and critics still gush about and designers continue to reference.

Dana Thomas is the author of Deluxe: How Luxury Lost Its Lustre.

Won Ton and Chopstick
A Cat and Dog Tale Told in Haiku


Won Ton has a happy life with his boy, until…

A new puppy arrives, and nothing will be the same.

The story of how Won ton faces down the enemy is a fresh and funny twist on a familier rivalry. Told entirely in haiku with plenty of catitude – and beautiful illustrations by Eugune Yelchin.
