New Finnish Grammar is an unforgettable tale of one man's search for meaning and for identity amid the devastation of WW2. The right word. That's all the difference between life and death. Memory is inseparable from words. Words draw things out of the shadows. Learn the words and you will recover your memory. One night at Trieste in September 1943 a seriously wounded soldier is found on the quay. With nothing to identify him, and having lost his memory and language, he is a mystery to the crew of the German ship that rescues him. The ship's doctor, a Finn, identifies the name embroidered on the man's jacket as Finnish. Taking him for a fellow countryman, he gradually teaches him to speak Finnish and eventually finds him a berth in an army hospital in Helsinki, from where he may be able to piece together his former life. But the longer he spends in Helsinki, the less he feels at home; the more he learns of the Finnish language and rich history, the less familiar it seems; and by the time we learn his true identity, it's too late.

Here's a book for lovers of all things Italian. This city on the Adriatic has always tantalized Jan Morris with its moodiness and changeability. After visiting Trieste for more than half a century, she has come to see it as a touchstone for her interests and preoccupations: cities, seas, empires. It has even come to reflect her own life in its loves, disillusionments, and memories. Her meditation on the place is characteristically layered with history and sprinkled with stories of famous visitors from James Joyce to Sigmund Freud. A lyrical travelogue, Trieste and the Meaning of Nowhere is also superb cultural history and the culmination of a singular career-"an elegant and bittersweet farewell" (Boston Globe).

RACCONTO (19 pagine) - FANTASCIENZA - Può una porzione di dessert cambiare il corso della storia? Peenemunde, Mar Baltico, 1942. Wernher Von Braun, capo progettista incaricato dello sviluppo delle micidiali "armi segrete" del Führer, si ritrova fra le mani un piccolo busto raffigurante Hermann Göring, con un'incisione alla base in caratteri cirillici. A saperne qualcosa potrebbe essere la nuova cuoca, Maria Luise. La passione per il volo e quella per il cibo sono le dominanti della vita dell'ingegnere. E poi la ragazza è così bella, che forse vale la pena dedicare più tempo a lei e ai suoi manicaretti che al programma bellico dei nazisti. Altrimenti, un giorno... Può una porzione di dessert cambiare il corso della storia? Racconto finalista al Premio Italia nel 2012. Francesco Troccoli, nato a Roma nel 1969, si è imposto sulla scena della fantascienza nel 2012 con l'uscita del romanzo "Ferro Sette", edito da Curcio, al quale è seguito l'anno dopo per la stessa casa editrice "Falsi Dei". I due romanzi sono ambientati nel cosiddetto Universo Insonne, per i quali l'autore ha scritto anche un piccolo prequel, "Hypnos", uscito nella collana, mentre è prossima, nella collana Odissea Digital Fantascienza, l'uscita del terzo romanzo. Del 2012 è "Domani Forse Mai" (Wild Boar), raccolta di racconti a cura dell'associazione RiLL. Ha curato con Alberto Cola l'antologia "Crisis" (Dalla Vigna 2014) ed è membro della Carboneria Letteraria, con cui ha pubblicato il romanzo collettivo "Maiden Voyage" (Homo Scrivens 2014).

From the bestselling, acclaimed author of Tully and The Bronze Horseman comes the unforgettable love story between a college-bound young woman and a traveling troubadour on his way to war—a moving, compelling novel of love lost and found set against the stunning backdrop of Eastern Europe. Chloe is just weeks away from heading off to college and starting a new life far from her home in Maine when she embarks on a great European adventure with her boyfriend and two best friends. Their destination is Barcelona, but first they must detour through the historic cities of Eastern Europe to keep an old family promise. Here, in this fledgling post-Communist world, Chloe meets a charming American vagabond named Johnny, who carries a guitar, an easy smile—and a lifetime of secrets. From Treblinka to Trieste, from Karnikava to Krakow, from Vilnius to Venice, the unlikely band of friends and lovers traverse the old world on a train trip that becomes a treacherous journey into Europe’s and Johnny’s darkest past—a journey that jeopardizes Chloe’s plans for the future and all she ever thought she wanted. But the lifelong bonds Chloe and her friends share are about to be put to the ultimate test—and whether or not they reach Barcelona, they can only be certain that their lives will never be the same again. A sweeping, beautiful tale that mesmerizes and enchants, Lone Star will linger long in the memory once the final page is turned.

From the bestelling author of GIRL IN HYACINTH BLUE, "A vivid exploration of one of the most beloved Renoir paintings in the world, done with a flourish worthy of Renoir himself" (USA Today) With her richly textured novels, Susan Vreeland has offered pioneering portraits of artists' lives. As she did in Girl in Hyacinth Blue, Vreeland focuses on a single painting, Auguste Renoir's instantly recognizable masterpiece, which depicts a gathering of Renoir's real friends enjoying a summer Sunday on a café terrace along the Seine. Narrated by Renoir and seven of the models, the novel illuminates the gusto, hedonism, and art of the era. With a gorgeous palette of vibrant, captivating characters, Vreeland paints their lives, loves, losses, and triumphs so vividly that "the painting literally comes alive" (The Boston Globe).
