Leggerlo sarà un piacere Eden Gari ha venticinque anni e la sua vita da favola si è appena trasformata in un incubo. Ha sognato a lungo il grande amore, senza mai incontrarlo. Le sue storie si sono sempre concluse male, lasciandole addosso solo tanta amarezza. Stava quasi per smettere di sperare, quando un uomo è apparso nella sua vita, e lei si è trovata ad annegare nei suoi occhi. Eppure proprio quell’uomo diventa la sua passione e insieme la sua condanna. Perché con lui scoprirà il piacere più proibito, con lui il suo corpo fremerà per un’estasi mai provata. Ma per averlo bisogna pagare un prezzo molto alto: accettare il suo ricatto e le sue condizioni. Eden si chiede se ne valga davvero la pena e non è certa della risposta, ma decide di rischiare lo stesso. Che il gioco abbia inizio, Mr. Blake... «Un patto/ricatto condito con un po’ di mistero non risolto. Come andrà a finire lo sapremo nel prossimo episodio, sperando l’attesa non sia lunga.» Alessandra L.F. Koralineha due grandi passioni: gli animali e i libri. 703 ragioni per dire sì segna il suo esordio nella narrativa.

In 1871, nineteen men, women, and children, voyaging on the Arctic explorer USS Polaris found themselves cast adrift on an ice floe as their ship began to founder. Based on one of the most remarkable events in polar history, Afterlands tells the haunting story of this small society of castaways -- a white and a black American, five Germans, a Dane, a Swede, an Englishman, and two Inuit families -- and the harrowing six months they spend marooned in the Arctic, struggling to survive both the harsh elements and one another. As the group splinters into factions along ethnic and national lines, rivalries -- complicated by sexual desire, unrequited love, extreme hunger, and suspicion -- begin to turn violent. Steven Heighton's provocative novel fills in the blanks of the Polaris's documented history and explores the shattering emotional and psychological consequences faced by those who survive.
