È una sera d’ottobre, fredda e buia, quando April incontra Colton per la prima volta. Forse è destino, forse è solo fortuna ma, quando due uomini tentano di violentare April, è proprio Colton a salvarla. Quell’incontro inaspettato è solo l’inizio di qualcosa che stravolgerà radicalmente le loro vite. Colton conosce fin troppo bene il dolore e lo vede riflesso negli occhi di April, la quale cerca invano di nascondere una profonda ferita che il ragazzo è determinato a rimarginare. Per questo le propone uno strano patto, un “programma” fatto di sette punti, che ha come unico scopo la ricerca della felicità. Sette desideri mai realizzati, sette sfide da affrontare insieme. April dovrà imparare a superare i propri limiti, mentre Colton capirà presto che reprimere i sentimenti a volte diventa impossibile. Ma quando il passato del ragazzo si ripresenterà alla sua porta minacciando di distruggere una seconda volta il suo mondo e quello di April, Colton sarà in grado di mettere in partica i suoi stessi insegnamenti e affrontare i propri demoni?

A dieci passi da te è un racconto retrospettivo effettuato a partire da un monologo a due voci. Iris e Luca, due ex fidanzati, hanno deciso di rivedersi su iniziativa della ragazza, in vacanza a Londra, dove vive stabilmente lui. L’ansia dell’incontro porta entrambi a ripensare al passato e alla loro storia, che ha profondamente inciso sulle vite di entrambi. Iris si giustifica attraverso la sua malattia invalidante nel tempo, quindi decide di “fuggire” da colui che ritiene importante, ma non abbastanza per sé stessa. Lui si sente abbandonato, perso e con un vuoto incolmabile. Erano vicini ma distanti, così era la diventata la loro relazione. Luca ancora innamorato e Iris distante, ma c’è qualcosa che li riporta dal passato al presente: la consapevolezza di cosa è davvero l’amore, le cose mai dette e mai fatte che Luca racconta nel romanzo in questa introspezione a due, che li porta a ritrovarsi più maturi. Mentre in attesa di incontrarsi, fa da contorno Londra nella sua bellezza, si trovano nel finale a dieci passi uno dall’altra, dopo essere stati avvolti da mille pensieri, ricordi e riflessioni, senza parole, ma come due anime in dialogo che ricordano il vissuto di due anni prima.

By the time of his death in 2009, the Grand Ayatollah Montazeri was lauded as the spiritual leader of the Green movement in Iran. Since the 1960s, when he supported Ayatollah Khomeini's opposition to the Shah, Montazeri's life reflected the crucial political shifts within Iran. In this book, Sussan Siavoshi presents the historical context as well as Montazeri's own political and intellectual journey. Siavoshi highlights how Montazeri, originally a student of Khomeini became one of the key figures during the revolution of 1978-9. She furthermore analyses his subsequent writings, explaining how he went from trusted advisor to and nominated successor of Khomeini to an outspoken critic of the Islamic Republic. Examining Montazeri's political thought and practice as well as the historical context, Siavoshi's book is vital for those interested in post-revolutionary Iran and the phenomenon of political Islam.
