Winner, Oxford-Weidenfeld Translation Prize, 2012. Shortlisted, Independent Foreign Fiction Award and Best Translated Book Award, 2012. Longlisted, European Book Prize, 2012. 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. New Finnish Grammar is an unforgettable tale of one man's search for meaning and for identity amid the devastation of WW2. Diego Marani was born in Ferrara in 1959. He works as a senior linguist for the European Union in Brussels. Every week he writes a column for a Swiss newspaper about current affairs in Europanto, a language he invented. He is the author of a collection of short stories in Europanto, Las Adventures des Inspector Cabillot, and five other novels, including The Last of the Vostyachs, published in Australia and New Zealand in early 2013. 'This is an extraordinary book, as good as Michael Ondaatje's The English Patient and with a similar mystery at its heart.' Spectator 'An entrancing, disturbing exploration of the limits of speech and self.' Independent 'Marani has created a staggering study of loss and an act of retrieval that is heroic.' Irish Times 'Beautifully written and translated, and beautifully original.' Times 'I can't remember when I read a more extraordinary novel, or when I was last so strongly tempted to use the word "genius" of its author.' Guardian

"Young Katherine of Aragon, daughter of Spain's powerful monarchs Ferdinand and Isabella, was an exquisite prize in the royal marriage market. Golden-haired, sixteen years old, she was sent to England to marry the future king, Arthur, Prince of Wales. But when Arthur died a few months after their wedding, Katherine's bright future was suddenly eclipsed. It took his younger brother Henry VIII eight long years to do the honorable thing and marry her. Their union was briefly happy until Katherine failed to bear a son, and Anne Boleyn caught Henry's eye"--

110 BC: The world cowers before its legions, but Rome is about to be engulfed by a vicious power struggle that will threaten its very existence. At its heart are two exceptional men: Gaius Marius, prosperous but lowborn, a proud and disciplined soldier emboldened by his shrewdness and self-made wealth; and Lucius Cornelius Sulla, a handsome young aristocrat corrupted by poverty and vice. Both are men of extraordinary vision, extreme cunning and ruthless ambition, but both are outsiders, cursed by the insurmountable opposition of powerful and vindictive foes. If they forge an alliance, Marius and Sulla may just defeat their enemies, but only one of them can become First Man in Rome. The battle for Rome has just begun. Please note: This ebook contains all the original maps and illustration.

You had the most amazing dream last night. It spoke to your highest aspiration-your most secret wish-and presented a vision of a future that was right for you. But now, in the cold light of day, that inspiring dream is gone forever-or is it? According to Dr. Stephen Aizenstat, a psychotherapist, university professor, and dream specialist, dreams are not just phantoms that pass in the night, but a present living reality that you can engage with and learn from in your daily life. In Dream Tending, Dr. Aizenstat shows how to access the power of your dreams to transform nightmare figures into profound and helpful mentors; bring fresh warmth and intimacy into your relationships; overcome obsessions, compulsions, and addictions; engage healing forces of your dreams through imaginary "medicines"; re-imagine your career and cope with difficulties in the workplace; discover the potential of your untapped creativity; and see the world around you from a new and dynamic perspective.
