Nella vita di Doris Lessing i gatti hanno sempre avuto un ruolo molto importante. Ci ha sempre convissuto, ha imparato presto a conoscerli. Il primo gatto risale ai tempi della Persia, quando aveva tre anni. Poi da bambina, in Sudafrica, dove ne era letteralmente circondata: i selvatici, che andavano tenuti lontani da quelli di casa, e i domestici, che a loro volta subivano il richiamo del bush. Da allora una lunga confidenza ha unito la scrittrice ai felini, in un rapportarsi sempre intenso, felice in certi casi, drammatico in altri. A Londra ha avuto animali più cittadini, ormai adeguatisi alla vita umana e abituati a relazionarsi con i padroni. E qui i sentimenti si fanno ancora più profondi e complessi. In particolare con i due con cui vive, uno grigio e l’altro nero, dalle psicologie così diverse tra loro. Di molti dei gatti conosciuti Lessing descrive carattere, temperamento, gusti e, con la stessa lucidità con cui ha analizzato se stessa e la società umana nei suoi libri, qui ha saputo guardare al mondo felino, alle qualità che lo fanno insieme simile e dissimile al nostro. In un libro che svela l’autentico, complicato, particolare, in fin dei conti impenetrabile per noi, linguaggio dei gatti. .

Finally, she must make the heartbreaking choice of whether to sacrifice her child as she turns her back on marriage and security.

New York Times and worldwide bestselling author Isabel Allende returns with a sweeping novel that journeys from present-day Brooklyn to Guatemala in the recent past to 1970s Chile and Brazil. An instant New York Times bestseller, In the Midst of Winter is about three very different people who are brought together in a mesmerizing story that offers “a timely message about immigration and the meaning of home” (People). During the biggest Brooklyn snowstorm in living memory, Richard Bowmaster, a lonely university professor in his sixties, hits the car of Evelyn Ortega, a young undocumented immigrant from Guatemala, and what at first seems an inconvenience takes a more serious turn when Evelyn comes to his house, seeking help. At a loss, the professor asks his tenant, Lucia Maraz, a fellow academic from Chile, for her advice. As these three lives intertwine, each will discover truths about how they have been shaped by the tragedies they witnessed, and Richard and Lucia will find unexpected, long overdue love. Allende returns here to themes that have propelled some of her finest work: political injustice, the art of survival, and the essential nature of—and our need for—love.

After a brutal day investigating a quadruple homicide, Detective Hoke Moseley settles into his room at the un-illustrious El Dorado Hotel and nurses a glass of brandy. With his guard down, he doesn’t think twice when he hears a knock on the door. The next day, he finds himself in the hospital, badly bruised and with his jaw wired shut. He thinks back over ten years of cases wondering who would want to beat him into unconsciousness, steal his gun and badge, and most importantly, make off with his prized dentures. But the pieces never quite add up to revenge, and the few clues he has keep connecting to a dimwitted hooker, and her ex-con boyfriend and the bizarre murder of a Hare Krishna pimp. Chronically depressed, constantly strapped for money, always willing to bend the rules a bit, Hoke Moseley is hardly what you think of as the perfect cop, but he is one of the the greatest detective creations of all time. From the Trade Paperback edition.

From Doris Lessing, "one of the most important writers of the past hundred years" (Times of London), comes a brilliant, darkly provocative alternative history of humankind’s beginnings. In the last years of his life, a Roman senator embarks on one final epic endeavor, a retelling of the history of human creation. The story he relates is the little-known saga of the Clefts, an ancient community of women with no knowledge of nor need for men. Childbirth was controlled through the cycles of the moon, and only female offspring were born—until the unanticipated event that jeopardized the harmony of their close-knit society: the strange, unheralded birth of a boy.
