Our March book pick is BEAUTYLAND by Marie-Helene Bertino. It’s about an alien just trying to make it in the world.
As Adina Giorno moves through the world and makes a life for herself among humans, she dispatches transmissions on the terrors and surprising joys of their existence. Then, at a precarious moment, a beloved friend urges Adina to share her messages with the world. Is there a chance she is not alone?
Beautyland is a novel of startling originality about the fragility and resilience of life on our Earth and in our universe. It is a remarkable evocation of the feeling of being in exile at home, and it introduces a gentle, unforgettable alien for our times.

Introducing the L’OFFICIEL March 2024 global cover star @dakotajohnson !
For someone who has spent their life surrounded by Hollywood’s pretense of perfection, #DakotaJohnson is refreshingly genuine. There’s an authenticity to her that translates into her work, both as an actor and producer through her company TeaTime. And in that spirit of sincerity, she’s not afraid to admit that the business of making movies isn’t always interested in creating complex female characters.
“All of the stuff I’m interested in making is really different,” she explains. “It just feels like nobody knows what to do and everyone’s afraid...They want to do the safe thing, and the safe thing is really boring.”
As she embarks on a new journey in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as #MadameWeb , the star spoke candidly—as always—with @marisameltzer about fighting for creative freedom, sexual wellness, and more. Tap the link in bio to read the full interview.
