What are your favorite modern fiction books, and why?
Asked by Justas Janauskas
Here are some lesser known gems:
The Contortionist's Handbook - Craig Clevenger - interesting look at mental health issues through a prism of mystery (fans of early works of Chuck Palahniuk will enjoy for sure).
Savage Girl - Alex Shakar - good example of postirony, candid and entertaining look at modern cool-hunters, marketing/pr influencers (coined the fascinsting concept of 'paradessence'). Decades ahead of its time.
Microserfs - Douglas Copeland - humorous, satiric, insightful look into the minds and lives of developers - the modern tech serfs toiling on their digital fields (while secretly building their passion projects at night). Again - decades ahead of its time.

I dont read books, I watch!
All my life, I have been surrounded by stories.
When I was little, my mother created her own stories with my toys every night.
When I got older, I was very lucky to have fantastic literature teacher who nurtured my love of reading and I read all the books from my school library.
Afterwards, I studied theater directing and the most famous and classical stories have been the foundation of all artistic projects I have built.
I later studied luxury marketing in France, where I have learned how storytelling is important to create unique and luxurious business models. That’s how I created the story for my own business called Timeless Paintings.
In the last 7 years, I have been part of a private Parisian book club and continue to enjoying analysing the best stories.
Once I even became a muse for the writer named Joe McMahon as he gave my name to his main character of his second book "The Fourth Stage ». He even asked my permission !
To be honest, my life is like a Big Story.
However, the great storytellers know how to move from a realistic version to a higher level to impress their audience.
Usually, they apply these 6 rules :
A great book 📖 for leaders who are driving digital transformation in their organization!

The research indicates that successful digital transformations start at the top of the company. Only the most senior executives can create a compelling vision whereas people in middle can make the vision a reality.
