La capacità di Massimo Gramellini di dare risposte incontra il talento di Chiara Gamberale di sollevare dubbi. Gioconda detta Giò ha trentacinque anni, una storia familiare complicata alle spalle, un’anima inquieta per vocazione o forse per necessità e un unico, grande amore: Leonardo. Che però l’ha abbandonata. Smarrita e disperata, si ritrova a vivere a casa dei suoi nonni, morti a distanza di pochi giorni e simbolo di un amore perfetto, capace di fare vincere la passione sul tempo che passa: proprio quello che non è riuscito al matrimonio di Giò. La notte di San Valentino, festa che lei ha sempre ignorato, Giò trova un biglietto che sua nonna aveva scritto all’angelo custode, per ringraziarlo. Con lo sconforto, ma anche il coraggio, di chi non ha niente da perdere, Giò ci prova: scrive anche lei al suo angelo. Che, incredibilmente, le risponde. E le fa una promessa: avrò cura di te. Poi rilancia. L’angelo non solo ha una fortissima personalità, ma ha un nome: Filèmone, ha una storia. Soprattutto ha la capacità di comprendere Giò come Giò non si è mai compresa. Di ascoltarla come non si è mai ascoltata. Nasce così uno scambio intenso, divertente, divertito, commovente, che coinvolge anche le persone che circondano Giò: il puntiglioso ex marito, la madre fricchettona, l’amica intrappolata in una relazione extraconiugale, una deflagrante guida turistica argentina, un ragazzino che vuole rinchiudersi in una comune... Uno scambio che indaga non solo le mancate ragioni di Giò: ma le mancate ragioni di ognuno di loro. Perché a ognuno di loro, grazie a Filèmone, voce dell’interiorità prima che dell’aldilà, sia possibile silenziare la testa e l’istinto. Per ascoltare il cuore. Anche e soprattutto quando è chiamato a rispondere a prove complicate, come quella a cui sarà messa davanti Giò proprio dal suo fedele Filèmone, in un finale sorprendente che sembrerà confondere tutto. Ma a tutto darà un senso.

A controversial, award-winning story about the passionate but untenable affair between an Israeli woman and a Palestinian man, from one of Israel’s most acclaimed novelists When Liat meets Hilmi on a blustery autumn afternoon in Greenwich Village, she finds herself unwillingly drawn to him. Charismatic and handsome, Hilmi is a talented young artist from Palestine. Liat, an aspiring translation student, plans to return to Israel the following summer. Despite knowing that their love can be only temporary, that it can exist only away from their conflicted homeland, Liat lets herself be enraptured by Hilmi: by his lively imagination, by his beautiful hands and wise eyes, by his sweetness and devotion. Together they explore the city, sharing laughs and fantasies and pangs of homesickness. But the unfettered joy they awaken in each other cannot overcome the guilt Liat feels for hiding him from her family in Israel and her Jewish friends in New York. As her departure date looms and her love for Hilmi deepens, Liat must decide whether she is willing to risk alienating her family, her community, and her sense of self for the love of one man. Banned from classrooms by Israel’s Ministry of Education, Dorit Rabinyan’s remarkable novel contains multitudes. A bold portrayal of the strains—and delights—of a forbidden relationship, All the Rivers (published in Israel as Borderlife) is a love story and a war story, a New York story and a Middle East story, an unflinching foray into the forces that bind us and divide us. “The land is the same land,” Hilmi reminds Liat. “In the end all the rivers flow into the same sea.” International praise for All the Rivers “A fine, subtle, and disturbing study of the ways in which public events encroach upon the private lives of those who attempt to live and love in peace with each other, and, impossibly, with a riven and irreconcilable world.”—John Banville, Man Booker Prize–winning author of The Sea “I’m with Dorit Rabinyan. Love, not hate, will save us. Hatred sows hatred, but love can break down barriers.”—Svetlana Alexievich, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature “Astonishing . . . [a] precise and elegant love story, drawn with the finest of lines.”—Amos Oz “Rabinyan’s writing reflects the honesty and modesty of a true artisan.”—Haaretz “Because the novel strikes the right balance between the personal and the political, and because of her ability to tell a suspenseful and satisfying story, we decided to award Dorit Rabinyan’s [All the Rivers] the 2015 Bernstein Prize.”—From the 2015 Bernstein Prize judges’ decision “[All the Rivers] ought to be read like J. M. Coetzee or Toni Morrison—from a distance in order to get close.”—Walla! “Beautiful and sensitive . . . a human tale of rapprochement and separation . . . a noteworthy human and literary achievement.”—Makor Rishon “A captivating (and heartbreaking) gem, written in a spectacular style, with a rich, flowing, colorful and addictive language.”—Motke “Rabinyan’s ability to create a rich realism alongside a firm, clear and convincing flow of emotional fluctuations . . . gives the work a literary momentum and makes the reading both compelling and enjoyable.”—Ynet “A great novel of love and peace.”—La Stampa “A novel that truly speaks to the heart.”—Corriere della Sera

Instant New York Times Bestseller A New York Times Notable Book of 2016 A Time Magazine Top 10 Novel of 2016 A Times Literary Supplement Best Book of 2016 “Dazzling . . . A profound novel about the claims of identity, history, family, and the burdens of a broken world.” —Maureen Corrigan, NPR’s “Fresh Air” In the book of Genesis, when God calls out, “Abraham!” before ordering him to sacrifice his son, Isaac, Abraham responds, “Here I am.” Later, when Isaac calls out, “My father!” before asking him why there is no animal to slaughter, Abraham responds, “Here I am.” How do we fulfill our conflicting duties as father, husband, and son; wife and mother; child and adult? Jew and American? How can we claim our own identities when our lives are linked so closely to others’? These are the questions at the heart of Jonathan Safran Foer’s first novel in eleven years—a work of extraordinary scope and heartbreaking intimacy. Unfolding over four tumultuous weeks in present-day Washington, D.C., Here I Am is the story of a fracturing family in a moment of crisis. As Jacob and Julia Bloch and their three sons are forced to confront the distances between the lives they think they want and the lives they are living, a catastrophic earthquake sets in motion a quickly escalating conflict in the Middle East. At stake is the meaning of home—and the fundamental question of how much aliveness one can bear. Showcasing the same high-energy inventiveness, hilarious irreverence, and emotional urgency that readers loved in his earlier work, Here I Am is Foer’s most searching, hard-hitting, and grandly entertaining novel yet. It not only confirms Foer’s stature as a dazzling literary talent but reveals a novelist who has fully come into his own as one of our most important writers.
