Il corposo carteggio bilaterale fra Federico De Roberto e la nobildonna Ernesta Valle Ribera, ribattezzata Renata (perché “rinata” all’amore) o Nuccia (diminutivo di “femminuccia”), copre un lungo arco di tempo in un intricato, pertinace intreccio di temi intimi e letterari. Un’ardente storia d’amore che ci rivela aspetti ignorati dell’austero e schivo autore de I Vicerè e insieme della vita mondana, sociale, culturale dei due poli fra cui si snoda, Milano e Catania, dalla fine dell’Ottocento ai primi del Novecento. Meta prediletta di De Roberto, al pari dei sodali Verga e Capuana, sospinti da un senso d’irrequietezza, da un’aspirazione a più vasti orizzonti, Milano rappresenta, e il carteggio ne è ampia testimonianza, la capitale dei poteri mediatici, finanziari, culturali, la città più progredita, operosa, ricca di vivacità artistica e di brulicanti iniziative, con le sue prestigiose case editrici (i Fratelli Treves, Galli), le grandi testate giornalistiche (il “Corriere della Sera”, la rivista “La Lettura”), i rinomati teatri (la Scala, il Manzoni, il Filodrammatici, il Lirico, l’Eden), gli eleganti ritrovi (il Biffi, il Cova, il Savini, il Caffè dell’Accademia), gli elitari salotti (di donna Vittoria Cima, di Virginia Borromeo, della stessa Ernesta Valle Ribera). È lì che gli sono consentite assidue frequentazioni con i maggiori esponenti dell’intellighentia dell’epoca, giornalisti, scrittori, editori. Amante appassionato, impetuoso, temerario, travolgente, De Roberto, per il tramite della mediazione di un focoso, insistito, spregiudicato rammemorare, mira a rinnovare ebrezze amorose, consolidare vincoli carnali, quasi a viepiù tener legata la sua “femminuccia”. Talora melodrammatico, enfatico fino al parossismo, alla sfacciataggine, all’impudicizia, alla violenza.

Prima di rivelarsi pienamente come narratore, Joseph Roth lavorò come giornalista, in quegli anni Venti particolarmente adatti alle incursioni nella realtà da parte di un viaggiatore «dappertutto a casa, ma senza casa». E subito fu riconosciuto «prosatore di prim’ordine, un maestro della lingua tedesca» (Hermann Kesten). In "Museo delle cere", pubblicato nel 1930, Roth volle raccogliere il meglio di quegli scritti: una trentina di feuilleton apparsi per la maggior parte nella «Frankfurter Zeitung». Il titolo originale, "Panoptikum", riprendeva il termine tedesco per «museo delle cere» – accenno a un mondo sempre più spettrale, dove i manichini del Musée Grévin potevano apparire come «imitazioni più vere» –, e al tempo stesso implicava una visione «panotticale», una veloce panoramica delle esperienze fatte da Roth, uomo e giornalista, a Vienna e in Germania ma anche su e giù per l’Europa, in Francia come in Albania: «figure e sfondi», come dice il sottotitolo. Tra le «figure» sfilano i piccoli personaggi della vita d’albergo che sarebbe diventata la vita stessa di Roth, gli oscuri colleghi in giornalismo, le ombre indaffarate che partecipano a un solenne ma effimero congresso: profili che un giorno acquisiranno nomi e cognomi nei romanzi di Roth, comparse di un’epoca che pochi come lui ci hanno saputo restituire. Tra gli «sfondi» emerge un ricordo che diviene una pagina memorabile: l’addio a tutto un mondo, con il funerale di Sua Maestà Apostolica Imperial-regia Francesco Giuseppe – cerimonia alla quale il giovane Roth aveva partecipato indossando la «nuova uniforme grigio-verde con la quale saremmo andati al fronte qualche settimana più tardi».

Siamo nel 2001 a Parma e lì, durante i preparativi per celebrare i cento anni dalla morte di Giuseppe Verdi, si verificano alcuni episodi apparentemente incomprensibili. Ma la vita non è mai semplice e lineare, anzi è spesso contorta e piena di contrattempi, questo per dire che è anche rassicurante poter addebitare le avverse fortune all'influsso di qualche essenza malefica, ma di malefico c'è solo l'impulso a vedere malefici dappertutto.

The sequel to the international best-selling novel The Art of Hearing Heartbeats. Almost ten years have passed since Julia Win came back from Burma, her father’s native country. Though she is a successful Manhattan lawyer, her private life is at a crossroads; her boyfriend has recently left her and she is, despite her wealth, unhappy with her professional life. Julia is lost and exhausted. One day, in the middle of an important business meeting, she hears a stranger’s voice in her head that causes her to leave the office without explanation. In the following days, her crisis only deepens. Not only does the female voice refuse to disappear, but it starts to ask questions Julia has been trying to avoid. Why do you live alone? To whom do you feel close? What do you want in life? Interwoven with Julia’s story is that of a Burmese woman named Nu Nu who finds her world turned upside down when Burma goes to war and calls on her two young sons to be child soldiers. This spirited sequel, like The Art of Hearing Heartbeats, explores the most inspiring and passionate terrain: the human heart.

The latest in the New York Times bestselling series has Italy's favorite detective uncovering corruption and mafia ties in the world of construction and public spending On a gloomy morning in Vigàta, a call from Fazio rouses Inspector Montalbano from a nightmare. A man called Giugiù Nicotra has been found dead in the skeletal workings of a construction site, a place now entombed by a sea of mud from recent days of rain and floods. Shot in the back, he had fled into a water supply system tunnel. The investigation gets off to a slow start, but all the evidence points to the world of construction and public contracts, a world just as slimy and impenetrable as mud. As he wades through a world in which construction firms and public officials thrive, Montalbano is obsessed by one thought: that by going to die in the tunnel, Nicotra had been trying to communicate something. “The novels of Andrea Camilleri breathe out the sense of place, the sense of humor, and the sense of despair that fills the air of Sicily.” —Donna Leon

Considered one of Marxs most profound monographs and a brilliant history of the proletariat, this 1852 essaywhich originally appeared in Die Revolution magazineis Marxs commentary on the 1851 French coup by Louis Bonaparte, nephew of Napoleon Bonaparte, overthrowing the constitution of 1848. Most famous as the source of Marxs dictum that history occurs twice, the first time as tragedy, the second time as farce, this work is better known to historians as a vital early discussion of the politics of fascism in the 20th century, which Bonapartes coup anticipated. Students of Marxs philosophy and readers in modern political movements will find this an enlightening read. Prussian philosopher KARL MARX (1818-1883) was a social scientist, historian, and political revolutionary. He is indisputably the most influential socialist thinker to emerge in the 19th century. Although scholars largely ignored him in his own lifetime, his social, economic, and political ideas gained rapid acceptance in the socialist movement after his death.
