Emmi e Leo: per chi ancora non li conosce, sono i protagonisti di un amore virtuale appassionante, che ha vissuto ogni sorta di emozione, a parte quella dell’incontro vero. Sì, perché dopo quasi due anni, Leo ha deciso di tagliare definitivamente i ponti con Emmi e partire per Boston, per ricominciare una nuova vita. Emmi però non si dà per vinta, e riesce nell’impresa di riallacciare i rapporti con Leo. Mentre lei è ancora felicemente sposata con Bernhard, per Leo in nove mesi le cose sono cambiate, eccome: in America ha conosciuto Pamela e finalmente ha iniziato la storia d’amore che ha sempre sognato. Si sa, però, l’apparenza inganna. Ritornano le schermaglie via e-mail che hanno tenuto col fiato sospeso i numerosi lettori di Le ho mai raccontato del vento del Nord, e anche stavolta promettono scintille.

Malinconico is a Neapolitan lawyer without a single case. He goes through the motions every day, leaving for the office punctually, shuffling papers when he gets to the studio he shares with a group of un-gainfully employed professionals like him. His personal life is a shambles: his wife has left him, his two teenage children are rife with adolescent angst and busy screwing their lives up royally. And his professional life, as noted, is nonexistent. But one day a miracle occurs. Indeed, two! The first is that he is assigned a case. And not any old case! He has been named the defense attorney for a member of the Neapolitan underground, Mimmo the Burzone. The second miracle bears the name Alessandra Persiana-the most beautiful woman to ever grace the Neapolitan courthouses -who, it appears, has fallen in love with Malinconico. However, the real miracle for readers in this rollicking novel is the hilarious and eccentric voice of Vincenzio Malinconico. The novel orbits around the bizarre and irresistible mind of Malinconico, a mind that pauses to contemplate every aspect of the life he sees before him, the life he has lived, his memories and his future; a voice that seduces, entertains, and moves the reader from the first page to the last.

The author of the international bestseller Silk now delivers a ravishing and wildly inventive novel about friendship, genius and its discontents, and the redemptive power of narrative. Somewhere in America lives a brilliant boy named Gould, an intellectual guided missile aimed at the Nobel Prize. His only companions are an imaginary giant and an imaginary mute. Improbably—and yet with impeccable logic--he falls into the care of Shatzy Shell, a young woman whose life up till that point has been equally devoid of human connection . Theirs is a relationship of stories and of stories within stories: of Gould’s evolving saga of an underdog boxer and the violent Western that Shatzy has been dictating into a tape recorder since the age of six. Out of these stories, Alessandro Baricco creates a masterpiece of metaphysical pulp fiction that recalls both Scheherazade and Italo Calvino. By turns exhilarating and deeply moving, City is irresistible.

"Marvelous and Illuminating. . . . Forces us to reassess our notions of good and evil." —Irvine Welsh In a contested, lawless region between Moldova and Ukraine known as Transnistria, a tightly knit group of “honest criminals” live according to strict codes of ritualized respect and fierce loyalty. In a voice utterly compelling and unforgettable, Nicolai Lilin, born and raised within this exotic subculture, tells the story of his moral education outside the bounds of “society” as we know it, where men uphold values with passion—and often by brute force.

When Farid’s beautiful young mother Jamila tries to escape Libya by boat, it is the first time that Farid will see the sea. This is the same sea into which Vito stares from a beach on the opposite side – Farid and Jamila’s destination. But unfortunately, the Mediterranean does not fulfil its promise of a new life for the two young refugees. Instead, it becomes their prison. A tale of moving intensity, Morning Sea is about human migration. It is about the fate of those exiled from their houses, relatives and roots; about the violence of nature and war; and about the strength of women compelled by injustice to defend their children’s futures. With terse and astute language, Mazzantini captures perfectly the dark, uncertain quality of our times, and asks: when must we commit ourselves to the right of all humans to live with dignity and respect.

The unforgettable cross country journey of a runaway couple in their twilight years determined to meet the end of all roads on their own terms—a major motion picture from Sony Pictures Classics starring Helen Mirren and Donald Sutherland. The Robinas have shared a wonderful life for more than sixty years. Now in their eighties, Ella suffers from cancer and John has Alzheimer's. Yearning for one last adventure, the self-proclaimed "down-on-their-luck geezers" kidnap themselves from the adult children and doctors who seem to run their lives and steal away from their home in suburban Detroit on a forbidden vacation of rediscovery. With Ella as his vigilant copilot, John steers their '78 Leisure Seeker RV along the forgotten roads of Route 66 toward Disneyland in search of a past they're having a damned hard time remembering. Yet Ella is determined to prove that, when it comes to life, you can go back for seconds—even when everyone says you can't. “The Leisure Seeker is pretty much like life itself: joyous, painful, moving, tragic, mysterious, and not to be missed.”—Booklist, starred review

"Anche quest'anno Kurt passerà il Natale a casa. Il suo padrone (io), no di certo. Perciò siate così gentili da prendervi il mio cane." Max detesta il Natale e quest'anno, per la prima volta in vita sua, è fermamente intenzionato a lasciarselo alle spalle e a fuggire in un paradiso esotico. Purtroppo, però, ha fatto i conti senza Kurt, il suo cane. Kurt è stato un investimento sbagliato: passa la maggior parte del tempo a dormire e, quando si muove, tutt'al più lo fa per sbaglio. A chi affidarlo durante la vacanza? All'inizio Katrin non ha nulla a che spartire né con l'uno né con l'altro. Alla soglia dei trent'anni deve, suo malgrado, sopportare genitori che devono, loro malgrado, sopportare il fatto che lei non abbia ancora trovato l'uomo giusto. Con l'avvicinarsi del Natale e della tradizionale riunione di famiglia, la pazienza di tutti giunge al limite. Di colpo, però, ecco che all'orizzonte spunta Kurt. A Katrin non piacciono granché gli animali, ma a suo padre ancora meno. L'inserzione di Max per un dog-sitter è un'occasione troppo ghiotta per lasciarsela sfuggire. Così in un attimo lei architetta un piano formidabile. Mentre in città la temperatura continua a scendere e la prima neve ammanta di bianco le strade, le vite di Max, Katrin e Kurt si intrecciano inesorabilmente, in un crescendo di sorprese, trovate geniali e battute memorabili. Dopo lo straordinario successo di Le ho mai raccontato del vento del Nord e La settima onda, Daniel Glattauer ci regala una nuova e intensa storia d'amore, con il giusto mix di leggerezza e serietà e due indimenticabili protagonisti. Anzi, tre: fare i conti senza Kurt è davvero impossibile. per le skin codice = &skinner=SteelExternalAllgreen.swf Scopri il mondo di Kurt, Max e Katrin! "Ci sono scrittori che riescono a rendere divertente anche la descrizione di un dado. Glattauer è senz'altro uno di questi." Der Standard "È impossibile staccarsi da un romanzo di Glattauer. Devi aspettare che la storia giunga al termine e anche allora vorresti che non fosse mai finita." Time Out "Daniel Glattauer scrive splendidi romanzi di costume, geniali ritratti della banalità contemporanea." El País.
