From Publishers Weekly
Set in a small town with such a timeless quality that contemporary details (computers, malls, The Montel Williams Show) seem almost anachronistic, Roos's (The Terrible Truth) melancholy, not altogether literal tale centers on sixth-grader Augie Knapp. Born with a deformed hand, Augie's sense of being an outsider is compounded by fatherlessness he doesn't even know his father's name. During his after-school job for a dry cleaner, he secretly collects other people's ephemera (letters, receipts, holiday cards), through which he leads a vicarious normality. When Lydie Rose, an enigmatic stranger with seemingly no family, no history and no explanation for her unbounded independence, shows up in Augie's class, she thwarts his attempts to fit in by continually accentuating his differences and telling tales of...

Review
The approach presented by Göran Roos and his team in this book was the template for turning FOI into a world-class organization. I would recommend it to anyone responsible for value creation in the public sector.
Bengt Anderberg, Director General [ret], FOI (Swedish Defense Agency)

Göran Roos and his colleagues interpretation of the value of managing intellectual capital correctly as a way of establishing differentiation and sustainable competitive advantages in a wide range of organizations is superb. This new book is a great stimulator for managers to adopt new ways of management with an excellent combination of theory and practical examples.
Sabin Azua, Managing Director, BearingPoint, Spain

"The first book providing practical advice on how to extract more value from intangibles highly...


Other Side of Mulholland

Review
"Fresh, witty, and relentlessly funny." --Laura Zigman

"If Bridget Jones had a sex change and teamed up with Nathanael West, the result would be the scathing, hysterical, drop-dead-accurate portrayal of contempo L.A. captured in Stephen Randall's The Other Side of Mulholland. With laser-sharp wit and sentences you want to read out loud to strangers, Randall lays bare the pretensions, rituals, and peculiar air-conditioned dementia of life in the City of Angels. A hugely readable debut by a terrific new voice in American fiction." --Jerry Stahl, author of Permanent Midnight and Perv: A Love Story

"Randall's novel is a wise exploration of how, for many of us, family ties can not only bind, but gag." --Laura Zigman, author of Animal Husbandry
