Sebastião Salgados photographs have been shown around the world. In From my land to the Planet the photographer tells us the story of his most famous reportages: from the black and white portraits of unknown men and women, workers or refugees, to the more recent Genesis project, a portrait of the most incontaminated places of our planet. With a kindness and a disarming simplicity, Salgado rebuilds his path, exposes his beliefs, makes us witnesses of his emotions. In this volume his talent as a storyteller and the authenticity of a man who knows how to combine activism and professionalism, talent and generosity, clearly emerge. The reader will discover fascinating stories of every corner of the world, both near and remote, from Africa to the Americas, and then again the birth of the Instituto Terra, of the Genesis project, of Magnum Photos and Amazonas Images.

Eighteen years ago, Richard Price's first novel, The Wanderers, was hailed by Hubert Selby, Jr., in the New York Times Book Review as "an outstanding work of art." Three novels and a dozen years later, Price made an equally stunning debut in Hollywood with his screenplay for The Color of Money, which was nominated for an Academy Award. And in 1989 his script for Sea of Love was widely recognized as a key to that movie's great success. But none of these accomplishments prepares us for the power and the brilliance of his new novel: with Clockers, Richard Price takes a long step forward and joins the first rank of American writers. Rocco Klein, a veteran homicide detective in a city just outside Manhattan, has lost his appetite for the wild drama of the street. When a warm June night brings yet another drug murder, Rocco has no sense that the case is anything special. A black twenty-year-old steps forward to confess, but a little digging reveals that he's never been in any kind of trouble, whereas his brother runs a crew of street-corner cocaine dealers— clockers—in a nearby housing project. Soon Rocco is sure that Victor Dunham is innocent, sure that his brother Strike is the real killer, and suddenly Rocco's hunger for the job is back. But we know this brother, and we know Strike is not the killer. Driven and shrewd, Strike uses violence when he has to, but his primary concern is survival. He has been clocking for almost a year; if he could somehow move up to the ounce business, he might get off the street before it breaks him. But then Rocco Klein begins hounding him, and Strike's life becomes a nightmare. At once an explosive murder mystery and a riveting portrait of two lives on a collision course, Clockers is a spectacular achievement. Richard Price has given voice to the harrowing but vital landscape of the American inner city, and this is quite simply one of the best novels in years.

#1 New York Times Bestseller Oprah's Book Club Selection The “extraordinary . . . monumental masterpiece” (Booklist) that changed the course of Ken Follett’s already phenomenal career. Look out for Ken's newest book, A Column of Fire, available now. “Follett risks all and comes out a clear winner,” extolled Publishers Weekly on the release of The Pillars of the Earth. A departure for the bestselling thriller writer, the historical epic stunned readers and critics alike with its ambitious scope and gripping humanity. Today, it stands as a testament to Follett’s unassailable command of the written word and to his universal appeal. The Pillars of the Earth tells the story of Philip, prior of Kingsbridge, a devout and resourceful monk driven to build the greatest Gothic cathedral the world has known . . . of Tom, the mason who becomes his architect—a man divided in his soul . . . of the beautiful, elusive Lady Aliena, haunted by a secret shame . . . and of a struggle between good and evil that will turn church against state and brother against brother. A spellbinding epic tale of ambition, anarchy, and absolute power set against the sprawling medieval canvas of twelfth-century England, this is Ken Follett’s historical masterpiece.

Set in the time of tremendous religious and political upheaval caused by the Reformation in Europe,Qbegins with Luther nailing his 95 theses on the door of the Wittenberg cathedral -- a historical flash point which would completely disrupt European society. The novel traces the adventures and conflicts of two central characters as they travel across Germany, Italy and the Netherlands. One is an Anabaptist, a member of the most radical Protestant sect. These are the anarchists of the Reformation who revolted against Catholicism and the emerging Reformation church. The other is a Catholic spy and informer. Like the leaders of religious reform, the book’s authors break with tradition -- seeking anonymity behind the pseudonym Luther Blissett. They have successfully created a world of intrigue, violence and intense political and religious passion. A phenomenal bestseller in Italy and Holland –Qis now being translated into eight languages. When it was first published anonymously in Italy, it was widely rumoured to be the work of Umberto Eco.

In questa raccolta di poesie in vernacolo siciliano si percepisce tutto l'amore dell'autrice per la terra di appartenenza. E' un chiaro omaggio alla sua lingua e alle mille sfumature del carattere dei siciliani. Nelle strofe delle poesie vien fuori la passione per la musica, come se i versi descritti fossero canzoni mai cantate. Il senso del richiamo ad un mondo sconosciuto visto da cieli incuranti, pur tuttavia partecipi, dove l'amore, la nascita, la passione, la vecchiaia e la morte sono cantati per necessità di vita ed esaltazione della stessa.

Diventata responsabile dell’agenzia investigativa SS, in questo romanzo dovrà indagare, con il suo metodo molto personale, sul caso di una ragazza scomparsa da quindici anni. - Stella, ti ho chiamato per mostrarti questo. Ancora non è stato reso ufficiale il rinvenimento. In mezzo ai mattoni spuntano delle ossa. Un cranio. Alcuni pezzi di stoffa e di cuoio. Uno scheletro piccolo. Sono assolutamente confusa. - Ti ringrazio, commissario, sono commossa per essere stata al centro dei tuoi pensieri. Però continuo a non capire perchè volevi che vedessi queste povere ossa. Può essere proprio lei? Come è finita qui? Chi ce l'ha portata? Come vorrei scoprirlo, come vorrei punire chi le ha fatto questo. - Ti do 3 giorni. Cerco di immaginarmi per che cosa: fuggire all'estero e fare perdere le mie tracce? Togliermi la vita prima che lo faccia lui? Costituirmi? - Cerca di capire chi è stato. Credi di riuscire a tirare fuori qualcosa in tre giorni? Più di così non posso fare.
