Rant is the oral history of one Buster 'Rant' Casey, in which an assortment of friends, enemies, detractors, lovers and relations have their say on the man who may or may not be the most efficient serial killer of our time. Rant is a darkly glittering anti-hero whose recreational drug of choice is rabies, and whose own personal Viagra is the venom of a black widow spider. He soon leaves his half-feral hometown for the big city, where he becomes the leader of an urban demolition derby called Party Crashing. On designated nights, the Party Crashers chase each other in cars in the hope of a collision, and all the while Rant, the 'superspreader', transmits his lethal disease...

The Pulitzer Prize-winning epic of the Great Depression, a book that galvanized—and sometimes outraged—millions of readers. First published in 1939, Steinbeck’s Pulitzer Prize-winning epic of the Great Depression chronicles the Dust Bowl migration of the 1930s and tells the story of one Oklahoma farm family, the Joads—driven from their homestead and forced to travel west to the promised land of California. Out of their trials and their repeated collisions against the hard realities of an America divided into Haves and Have-Nots evolves a drama that is intensely human yet majestic in its scale and moral vision, elemental yet plainspoken, tragic but ultimately stirring in its human dignity. A portrait of the conflict between the powerful and the powerless, of one man’s fierce reaction to injustice, and of one woman’s stoical strength, the novel captures the horrors of the Great Depression and probes into the very nature of equality and justice in America. At once a naturalistic epic, captivity narrative, road novel, and transcendental gospel, Steinbeck’s powerful landmark novel is perhaps the most American of American Classics. This Centennial edition, specially designed to commemorate one hundred years of Steinbeck, features french flaps and deckle-edged pages. For more than sixty-five years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,500 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

Si può essere calabresi e antimeridionali allo stesso tempo, operai e fascisti, meschini e sognatori? Pasquale Benassìa è la risposta a questa domanda. Grasso, furioso e con una sigaretta perennemente tra le labbra, proviene da una famiglia di umili pastori ma ha il massimo disprezzo della povertà e del Sud, “terra di mendicanti, miserabili e vigliacchi”. Negli anni Settanta decide di tentare una sorte migliore emigrando a Torino, dove entra nella catena di montaggio della Fiat. Si sottopone alla disciplina della fabbrica, inizia a studiare filosofia e si fidanza con una maestrina di Rivoli, pensando così di inserirsi in un contesto civilizzato. Una notte, però, alla fine del turno, incontra casualmente una giovane ragazza siciliana – di una bellezza feroce e spudorata – con la quale finisce a letto in una pensione. La stessa cosa avviene la notte successiva. La terza notte, invece, la ragazza non si fa trovare, e da quel momento per Pasquale inizia un incubo inspiegabile. Inseguito da una banda di malviventi che lo vuole ammazzare, è costretto a scontare la più terribile delle pene: il ritorno a casa sua, in Calabria. Ma il mondo è troppo piccolo per nascondersi, e quando qualcuno ti cerca sul serio, prima o poi ti trova. Andrea Di Consoli indaga non soltanto la storia di un personaggio irripetibile, istintivo, tumultuoso, che rifiuta di essere figlio del proprio tempo; attraverso la sua vicenda racconta l’oscura malattia di un’Italia, oggi come quarant’anni fa, insoddisfatta e aggressiva, umorale e fiera. Un Paese che vive secondo regole crudeli e spesso insensate – della terra, della famiglia, dell’amore, della fabbrica – regole che non ha scelto eppure non potrà mai rinnegare.
