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.

The New York Times bestselling new novel about modern family lives -- from the author of Everything Is Illuminated and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close Jacob and Julia Bloch have a problem - several problems, in fact. While they've been coaxing Jacob's grandfather into a retirement home, bracing themselves for a family reunion, and struggling to keep their eldest son from being expelled, a discovery is made that risks destroying their marriage. As domestic crises multiply in the foreground, a global disaster is looming on the horizon. The Bloch family is collapsing and so is the Middle East where a catastrophic earthquake sets in motion a quickly escalating conflict - and every man, woman and child must decide where they will stand.

Confronting the enduring question of what it means to be human, Here I Am is a great American novel for our times, a masterpiece about how we live now.

Neglected by her parents, nineteen-year-old Maya Nidal grows up in a rambling old house in Berkeley with her grandparents. Her grandmother, Nidia, affectionately known as Nini, is a force of nature—a woman whose formidable strength helped her build a new life after emigrating from Chile in 1973. Popo, Maya's grandfather, is an African American astronomer and professor—a gentle man whose solid, comforting presence helps calm the turbulence of Maya's adolescence. When Popo dies of cancer, Maya goes completely off the rails. With her girlfriends Maya turns to drugs, alcohol, and petty crime, eventually bottoming out in Las Vegas. Lost in a dangerous underworld, she is caught in the crosshairs of warring forces—a gang of assassins, the police, the FBI, and Interpol. Her one chance for survival is Nini, who helps her escape to a ­remote island off the coast of Chile. Here Maya tries to make sense of the past, unravels mysterious truths about life and her family, and embarks on her greatest adventure: the journey into her own soul.

Featuring a foreword by Michael Connelly, this relentlessly suspenseful thriller from the New York Times bestselling and Edgar award-winning author of the Inspector Banks novels marks the first time that Peter Robinson has set a novel in America. Sarah Broughton has come a long way. She’s the star of a hit cop show on TV. She lives in a beautiful California beach house. And—most importantly—she’s put her dark past behind her… as well as her old name, Sally Bolton. No need for anyone to know about that. When Sarah begins receiving letters mysteriously signed with the letter “M,” she thinks they’re from a harmless admirer… until her real name appears in the third letter. And then she finds that name inscribed in the sand near her home – next to a body. The message is clear: Someone is watching Sarah’s every move. Someone so obsessed with her that he won’t stop at just one murder in order to prove his love. Panicked, Sarah turns to Detective Arvo Hughes of the LAPD, a man who specializes in hunting down the most dangerous stalkers. But nothing in Hughes’ experience has prepared him for the mastermind he’s up against. For the killer, there’s no cure for love. And for Sarah and Hughes, there’s no way out.
