Ma è debole di mente: per la strada guarda gli uomini, sorride a tutti e, qualunque cosa le dicano, risponde di sì. Perciò suo padre, il vecchio Amanzio Berzaghi, un ex camionista, la tiene nascosta in casa, tra bambole e dischi di canzonette. Ma una mattina l’ex camionista non la trova più... Il caso viene affidato a Duca Lamberti, il medico-investigatore protagonista dei più noti e apprezzati gialli di Scerbanenco.Alla disperata ricerca della ragazza, Lamberti si spinge nei bassifondi di Milano, tra feroci magnaccia e case d’appuntamento.

"A noir writer richly deserving rediscovery." —Publishers Weekly The book that gave birth to Italian noir . . . Milan, 1966: When Dr. Duca Lamberti is released from prison, he’s lost his medical license and his options are few. But thanks to an old connection, he lands a job, although it’s a tricky one: guarding the alcoholic son of a plastics millionaire. But Lamberti soon discovers that the young man has a terrible secret, rooted in the mysterious death of a beautiful woman on the gritty side of town. The fast cars, high fashion, and chic nightclubs of glitzy and swinging Milan conceal a dirty reality . . . This is no dolce vita. A Private Venus marks the beginning of Italian noir: Giorgio Scerbanenco pioneered a new type of novel that trained its gaze on the crime and desperation that roiled under prosperous Italian society in the 1960s. And at the heart of this book is Duca Lamberti, an unforgettable protagonist: obsessive, world-weary, unconventional in his methods, and trying hard not to make another fatal mistake.

From the godfather of Italian noir “A noir writer richly deserving rediscovery.” —Publishers Weekly One balmy spring evening on the outskirts of Milan, a Fiat with two passengers plunges into a canal. At first, their deaths are registered as an accident. But Duca Lamberti, the doctor-turned-detective of Giorgio Scerbanenco’s legendary series, suspects there’s more to it than that. Because that same canal has been the scene of other deaths, and all the incidents have one man in common: a lawyer with a murky past stretching all the way back to World War II—a man who, in fact, once shared a prison cell with Lamberti. Winner of the most prestigious European crime prize on its original publication in 1966, Traitors to All is classic noir by one of the greatest writers of the genre—a book that lays bare the connections between Milan’s troubled history during the war and its swinging sixties affluence, as well as an utterly absorbing tale of betrayal and revenge.

VENERE PRIVATA. Le piccole dee della società dei consumi muoiono nei prati di periferia, ed è quasi sempre inutile indagare. L’omertà salva gli sfruttatori. Ma Duca Lamberti pensa che sia necessario insistere, comunque: «Più ne schiacci e più ce ne sono. E va bene, tenerezza mia, ma forse bisogna schiacciarli lo stesso». Venere privata, pubblicato per la prima volta nel 1966, è il primo romanzo della serie dedicata a Duca Lamberti. TRADITORI DI TUTTI. Notte di nebbia a Milano. Una macchina ferma sull’orlo del Naviglio: all’interno un uomo e una donna, anzianotti, hanno mangiato e bevuto troppo, lui specialmente. Una ragazza spinge la macchina piano... un tonfo, qualche spruzzo, neanche una bollicina. Per Duca Lamberti, ex medico e poliziotto a mezzo tempo, tutto comincia una mattina di primavera: sulla porta, un giovanotto, lo manda l’avvocato Sompiani... Ma Sompiani non è quello annegato due giorni fa nel Naviglio? I RAGAZZI DEL MASSACRO. Un’aula scolastica, una lavagna piena di parolacce e disegni osceni e il cadavere di una giovane donna completamente nuda, orrendamente massacrata di botte, i suoi abiti sparsi dappertutto. La vittima è Matilde Crescenzaghi, fragile e delicata signorina della piccola borghesia dell’Alta Italia, «insegnante di varie materie e anche buona educazione» nella scuola serale Andrea e Maria Fustagni. Un ambiente non molto raccomandabile, visto che spesso gli studenti sono già passati per il riformatorio o vengono da famiglie difficili. A risolvere il caso sarà un personaggio di culto come Duca Lamberti, medico e investigatore, alle prese questa volta con un ambiente insolito, morboso, feroce. I MILANESI AMMAZZANO AL SABATO. Donatella è scomparsa. È bellissima, sembra una svedese, con quei lunghi capelli biondi e quel profilo antico.

This is the life and times of T. S. Garp, the bastard son of Jenny Fields - a feminist leader ahead of her times. It is also the life and death of a famous mother and her almost-famous son; theirs is a world of sexual extremes - even of sexual assassinations. It is a novel rich with 'lunacy and sorrow'; yet the dark, violent events of the story do not undermine a comedy both ribald and robust. It provides almost cheerful, even hilarious evidence of its famous last line: "In the world according to Garp, we are all terminal cases."

Spider is gaunt, threadbare, unnerved by everything from his landlady to the smell of gas. He tells us his story in a storm of beautiful language that slowly reveals itself as a fiendishly layered construction of truth and illusion. With echoes of Beckett, Poe, and Paul Bowles, Spider is a tale of horror and madness, storytelling and skepticism, a novel whose dizzying style lays bare the deepest layers of subconscious terror.

Hollywood film scores underwent a supersonic transformation from the 1950s through the 1970s. This genre-by-genre overview of film and television soundtrack music covers a period of tremendous artistic and commercial development in the medium. Film and television composers bypassed the classical tradition favored by earlier screen composers to experiment with jazz, rock, funk and avant-garde styles. This bold approach brought a rich variety to film and television productions that often took on a life of its own through records and CDs. From Bernard Herrmann to Ennio Morricone, the composers of the “Silver Age” changed the way movie music was made, used, and heard. The book contains more than 100 promotional film stills and soundtrack cover art images.

This book comprehensively covers the history of Italian crime fiction from its origins to the present. Using the concept of "moral rebellion," the author examines the ways in which Italian crime fiction has articulated the country's social and political changes. The book concentrates on such writers as Augusto de Angelis (1888-1944), Giorgio Scerbanenco (1911-1969), Leonardo Sciascia (1921-1989), Andrea Camilleri (b. 1925), Loriano Macchiavelli (b. 1934), Massimo Carlotto (b. 1956), and Marcello Fois (b. 1960). Through the analysis of writers belonging to differing crucial periods of Italy's history, this work reveals the many ways in which authors exploit the genre to reflect social transformation and dysfunction.

In 1970s Italy, after the decline of the Spaghetti Western, crime films became the most popular, profitable and controversial genre. In a country plagued with violence, political tensions and armed struggle, these films managed to capture the anxiety and anger of the times in their tales of tough cops, ruthless criminals and urban paranoia. Recent years have seen renewed critical interest in the genre, thanks in part to such illustrious fans as Quentin Tarantino. This book examines all of the 220+ crime films produced in Italy between 1968 and 1980, the period when the genre first appeared and grew to its peak. Entries include a complete cast and crew list, home video releases, a plot summary and the author's own analysis. Excerpts from a variety of sources are included: academic texts, contemporary reviews, and interviews with filmmakers, scriptwriters and actors. There are many onset stills and film posters.

A new series of hardboiled crime fiction set in contemporary Naples by the author of the internationally bestselling Commissario Ricciardi series. They've made a fresh start at the Pizzofalcone precinct of Naples. They fired every member of the investigative branch after they were found guilty of corruption. Now, there's a group of detectives, a new commissario, and a new superintendent. The new cops immediately find themselves investigating a high-profile murder that has the whole town on edge. Heading the investigation is Inspector Lojacono, known as "the Chinaman," a cop with a checkered past who is currently riding a reputation as a crack investigator after having captured a serial killer known as "The Crocodile." Lojacono's partner is Aragona, who wants to be known as "Serpico," but the name doesn't stick. Luigi Palma, a.k.a. "Gigi," is the Commissario, Francesco Romano, known as "Hulk," is the slightly self-deluded lieutenant. Lojacono, Aragona, Palma, and Romano are joined by a cast of cops portrayed by bestselling author Maurizio de Giovanni with depth and intimate knowledge of the close-knit world of police investigators. De Giovanni is one of the most dexterous and successful writers of crime fiction currently working in Europe. His award-winning and bestselling novels, all set in Naples, offer a brilliant vision of the criminal underworld and the lives of the cops in Europe's most fabled, atmospheric, dangerous, and lustful city.

Vladimir Giorgio Scerbanenco, ucraino di nascita (Kiev, 1911) ma italiano d’adozione e di formazione, è morto a Milano nel 1969 dopo essere stato uno tra i maggiori protagonisti della nascita e dello sviluppo della letteratura di massa in Italia. Autentica «macchina per scrivere storie», ha frequentato con perizia e disinvoltura tutti i generi cosiddetti «paraletterari» attribuendo loro nuova dignità. È stato autore di un centinaio di romanzi, di svariati racconti e di numerosi articoli che testimoniano un percorso letterario coerente, personale e innovativo riconosciuto in parte e solo tardivamente dalla critica. Circa vent’anni dopo aver significativamente contribuito al rinnovamento della letteratura «gialla» classica, alla fine degli anni Sessanta, ha usato la propria acuta sensibilità noir per sconvolgere l’immaginario letterario nazionale. In questi ultimi lavori, in particolare, non si tratta di risolvere un enigma, ma piuttosto di rappresentare e comprendere la sfera delle sofferenze individuali all’interno di più ampie determinazioni sociali che pesano fatalmente sulla possibilità del singolo di esperire razionalmente la realtà. Alla forma sempre-uguale dei romanzi polizieschi, Scerbanenco aggiunge qui nuovi elementi referenziali che mettono i lettori di fronte al paradosso costante della coppia dialettica «ripetizione/innovazione». È grazie a questi lavori crudi e violenti, aventi come protagonista seriale Duca Lamberti, un medico reietto diventato per necessità e vocazione investigatore sui generis, che il genere poliziesco, per mezzo dell’accumulazione iperrealista degli elementi più evidenti della contemporaneità, inizia a mostrare, in modo perspicuo e originale, le contraddizioni della rapida trasformazione della vita quotidiana italiana negli anni del «miracolo economico».

The present volume is the first study in the English language to focus specifically on Italian crime fiction, weaving together a historical perspective and a thematic approach, with a particular focus on the representation of space, especially city space, gender, and the tradition of impegno, the social and political engagement which characterised the Italian cultural and literary scene in the postwar period. The 8 chapters in this volume explore the distinctive features of the Italian tradition from the 1930s to the present, by focusing on a wide range of detective and crime novels by selected Italian writers, some of whom have an established international reputation, such as C. E. Gadda, L. Sciascia and U. Eco, whilst others may be relatively unknown, such as the new generation of crime writers of the Bologna school and Italian women crime writers. Each chapter examines a specific period, movement or group of writers, as well as engaging with broader debates over the contribution crime fiction makes more generally to contemporary Italian and European culture. The editor and contributors of this volume argue strongly in favour of reinstating crime fiction within the canon of Italian modern literature by presenting this once marginalised literary genre as a body of works which, when viewed without the artificial distinction between high and popular literature, shows a remarkable insight into Italy’s postwar history, tracking its societal and political troubles and changes as well as often also engaging with metaphorical and philosophical notions of right or wrong, evil, redemption, and the search of the self.
