«Possibile siano donne? Così brave, abili, precise, spietate? Così incuranti del pericolo? Arrivano la notte all'improvviso, seminano il terrore e poi toccano di nuovo il cielo. Misteriose, sfuggenti, inafferrabili. Sembrano streghe. Nachthexen, streghe della notte.» «Sono donne, quelle raccontate da Ritanna Armeni, che hanno sconfitto il nazismo, che hanno sconfitto il nazismo, che hanno vinto la Seconda guerra mondiale.» Aldo Cazzullo «L'avventura delle donne sovietiche alla guida degli aerei militari che sganciavano bombe alla fine della Seconda guerra mondiale. Una testimone racconta la storia appassionante delle streghe, ragazze che volevano sfidare e superare i loro colleghi uomini, con tutte le contraddizioni e le umiliazioni di ieri e di oggi. Si legge di corsa e si ama fin dalle prime righe. Sono entusiasta.» Barbara Palombelli Le chiamavano Streghe della notte. Nel 1941, un gruppo di ragazze sovietiche riesce a conquistare un ruolo di primo piano nella battaglia contro il Terzo Reich. Rifiutando ogni presenza maschile, su fragili ma agili biplani, mostrano l’audacia, il coraggio di una guerra che può avere anche il volto delle donne. La loro battaglia comincia ben prima di alzarsi in volo e continua dopo la vittoria. Prende avvio nei corridoi del Cremlino, prosegue nei duri mesi di addestramento, esplode nei cieli del Caucaso, si conclude con l’ostinata riproposizione di una memoria che la Storia al maschile vorrebbe cancellare. Il loro vero obiettivo è l’emancipazione, la parità a tutti i costi con gli uomini. Il loro nemico, prima ancora dei tedeschi, il pregiudizio, la diffidenza dei loro compagni, l’oblio in cui vorrebbero confinarle. Contro questo oblio scrive Ritanna Armeni, che sfida tutti i «net» della nomenclatura fino a trovare l’ultima strega ancora in vita e ricostruisce insieme a lei la loro incredibile storia. È Irina Rakobolskaja, 96 anni, la vice comandante del 588° reggimento, a raccontarci il discorso, ardito e folle, con cui l’eroina nazionale Marina Raskova convince Stalin in persona a costituire i reggimenti di sole aviatrici. È lei a descriverci il freddo e la paura, il coraggio e perfino l’amore dietro i 23.000 voli e le 1100 notti di combattimento. E a narrare la guerra come solo una donna potrebbe fare: «Ci sono i sentimenti, la sofferenza e il lutto, ma c’è anche la patria, il socialismo, la disciplina e la vittoria. C’è il patriottismo ma anche l’ironia; la rabbia insieme alla saggezza. C’è l’amicizia. E c’è – fortissima – la spinta alla conquista della parità con l’uomo, desiderata talmente tanto – e questa non è retorica – da scegliere di morire pur di ottenerla».

For fans of Downton Abbey, the second volume of the critically acclaimed Cazalet saga takes readers into the lives of an extended British family and their devoted retinue It is 1939, and Hitler has just invaded Poland. The exigencies of wartime will force the Cazalets to make difficult choices as the older children are evacuated from London and settled in Home Place, their longtime Sussex summer estate. Narrated primarily through the voices of three Cazalet cousins—sixteen-year-old Louise and fourteen-year-old Polly and Clary—Marking Time details the continuing saga of their fathers. With the outbreak of war, Edward is determined to do his part for England. Hugh, crippled in World War I, must sit back and watch other men fight for their country, including his brother Rupert, who enlists and goes missing in action. The Cazalets’ story plays out against the greater drama unfolding on the world stage. Three young girls yearn for the freedom they believe adulthood will confer upon them in this tale of struggle and sacrifice, love and loss, as a new generation of Cazalets makes itself heard. With strong female characters such as the stoic Kitty; her daughter, Rachel, who’s in a relationship with another woman; and the loyal governess Miss Milliment, Marking Time explores the role of women during the war amid early stirrings of feminism.

Winner of the Icelandic Literary Prize, Hotel Silence is a delightful and heartwarming new novel from Auður Ava Ólafsdóttir, a writer who “upends expectations” (New York Times). Told with grace, insight, and humor, this is the story of one man’s surprising mid-life adventure of self-discovery that leads him to find a new reason for being. Jónas Ebeneser is a handy DIY kind of man with a compulsion to fix things, but he can’t seem to fix his own life. On the cusp of turning fifty, divorced, adrift, he’s recently discovered he is not the biological father of his daughter, Gudrun Waterlily, and he has sunk into an existential crisis, losing all will to live. As he visits his senile mother in a nursing home, he secretly muses on how, when, and where to put himself out of his misery. To prevent his only daughter from discovering his body, Jónas decides it’s best to die abroad. Armed with little more than his toolbox and a change of clothes, he flies to an unnamed country where the fumes of war still hover in the air. He books a room at the sparsely occupied Hotel Silence, and there he comes to understands the depths of other people’s scars while beginning to see his wounds in a new light. A celebration of life’s infinite possibilities, of transformations and second chances, Hotel Silence is a rousing story of a man, a community, and a path toward regeneration from the depths of despair.

From Sylvia Day, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Crossfire novels, comes On Fire, a novella of the Shadow Stalkers—where it’s futile to resist arrest or the power of a man with a badge. Just surrender. After all, you look so good in handcuffs… Every time she opened her mouth, his mind went straight into the gutter… When Deputy US Marshal Jared Cameron started investigating a series of arson attacks in the small seaside town of Lion’s Bay, he had no idea that the biggest blast of heat would come from the fire inspector. Her name was Darcy Michaels—and if there was anyone that Jared wanted to get down and sweaty with, it was Darcy. Darcy knew what she was bringing out in Jared. In fact, she liked it. She reveled in making his dirty dreams come true. Stripped down for a scorching after-hours affair, Jared was her fantasy, too. A hard-driving man who knew exactly what to do to please her. But as hot as their nights were, they had no idea just how wild it was going to get. Because Darcy has a secret. And a past. And it’s drawing them right into the flames… Includes a preview of Razor’s Edge, another novella in the Shadow Stalkers series. On Fire previously appeared in Hot in Handcuffs Praise for the novels of Sylvia Day: “When it comes to brewing up scorchingly hot sexual chemistry, Day has few literary rivals.”—Booklist “…obliterates the competition.”—Joyfully Reviewed “A wild, high-altitude ride.”—USAToday.com

**THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER** The book that inspired Steven Spielberg’s acclaimed TV series, produced by Tom Hanks and starring Damian Lewis. In Band of Brothers, Stephen E. Ambrose pays tribute to the men of Easy Company, a crack rifle company in the US Army. From their rigorous training in Georgia in 1942 to the dangerous parachute landings on D-Day and their triumphant capture of Hitler’s ‘Eagle’s Nest’ in Berchtesgaden. Ambrose tells the story of this remarkable company. Repeatedly send on the toughest missions, these brave men fought, went hungry, froze and died in the service of their country. A tale of heroic adventures and soul-shattering confrontations, Band of Brothers brings back to life, as only Stephen E. Ambrose can, the profound ties of brotherhood forged in the barracks and on the battlefields. ‘History boldly told and elegantly written . . . Gripping’ Wall Street Journal ‘Ambrose proves once again he is a masterful historian . . . spellbinding’ People

This book is a splendid profile of an extraordinary man, and a radically new interpretation of one of the most controversial figures in history.Caesar played a leading role in the politics and culture of a world empire, dwarfing his contemporaries in ambition, achievement and appetite. For that, he has occupied a central place in the political imagination of Europe ever since. Yet he remains something of an enigma, struck down by his own lieutenants because he could be neither comprehended nor contained. In surviving evidence he emerges as incommensurate and nonpareil, just beyond the horizons of contemporary political thought and understanding.The result of Luciano Canfora's many years of research is a fascinating portrait of the Roman dictator, combining the evidence of political history and psychology. The product of a comprehensive study of the ancient sources, it paints an astonishingly detailed portrait of a complex personality whose mission of 'Romanisation' lies at the root of modern Europe.Key Features* Easy, engaging and pleasurable to read* About 42 chronological studies of events create a full portrait of Caesar and the contemporary Roman background* Space is devoted to the details surrounding his assassination

Surrogate motherhood is expanding all over the world. Debates rage over how public policy should consider the signing away of the parental rights of birth mothers in favor of a 'commissioning' couple or an individual. In this book, Daniela Danna describes the situation in English-speaking countries and worldwide, from California to Greece, presenting the legal alternatives regulating (or not) these peculiar exchanges. Should surrogacy remain a private agreement? Should it be treated as an enforceable contract? Are surrogate mothers workers? What happens inside the countries that have chosen different ways of handling this new and controversial matter? And, the most important question of all: How can we live in this era of new techno-medical possibilities and try to stay human? Can we resist commodification in the field of human relations concerning procreation? Contract Children discusses the different ways available to obtain a child through surrogate motherhood. It is fundamental reading for anyone wanting to be involved in the surrogacy process. It gives prospective surrogate mothers and infertile couples the background information necessary for their own informed decision. It is also an essential instrument for policy makers and activists in the field of women's rights, social justice, and children's rights. The question of how to publicly deal with surrogate motherhood touches upon our social vision of motherhood, ultimately marking the position of women in contemporary society.

When up-and-coming chef Tommy Pagana settles for a less than glamorous stint at his uncle's restaurant in Manhattan's Little Italy, he unwittingly finds himself a partner in big-time crime. And when the mob decides to use the kitchen for a murder, nothing Tommy learned in cooking school has prepared him for what happens next. With the FBI on one side, and his eccentric wise guy superiors on the other, Tommy has to struggle to do right by his conscience, and to avoid getting killed in the meantime. In the vein of Prizzi's Honor, Bone in the Throat is a thrilling Mafia caper laced with entertaining characters and wry humor. This first novel is a must-have for fans of Anthony Bourdain's nonfiction. "A prodigiously self-assured first novel. . . the author's comic vision goes beyond original. It is deliciously depraved."-The New York Times Book Review
