It's early morning on New Year's Eve, and 9-year-old Massimo wakes up to a long, doleful cry and the disconcerting image of his dad being supported by two strangers. Inexplicably, his mother has disappeared, leaving only a vague trail of perfume in his room and her dressing gown bundled up at the foot of his bed. Where has she gone? Will she ever come back? And will Massimo be able to say sorry, after quarrelling with her the night before?

"Fai bei sogni" è la storia di un segreto celato in una busta per quarant'anni. La storia di un bambino, e poi di un adulto, che imparerà ad affrontare il dolore più grande, la perdita della mamma, e il mostro più insidioso: il timore di vivere. "Fai bei sogni" è dedicato a quelli che nella vita hanno perso qualcosa. Un amore, un lavoro, un tesoro. E rifiutandosi di accettare la realtà, finiscono per smarrire se stessi. Come il protagonista di questo romanzo. Uno che cammina sulle punte dei piedi e a testa bassa perché il cielo lo spaventa, e anche la terra. "Fai bei sogni" è soprattutto un libro sulla verità e sulla paura di conoscerla. Immergendosi nella sofferenza e superandola, ci ricorda come sia sempre possibile buttarsi alle spalle la sfiducia per andare al di là dei nostri limiti. Massimo Gramellini ha raccolto gli slanci e le ferite di una vita priva del suo appiglio più solido. Una lotta incessante contro la solitudine, l'inadeguatezza e il senso di abbandono, raccontata con passione e delicata ironia. Il sofferto traguardo sarà la conquista dell'amore e di un'esistenza piena e autentica, che consentirà finalmente al protagonista di tenere i piedi per terra senza smettere di alzare gli occhi al cielo.

Written as an epistolary monologue, Last Letters of Jacopo Ortis is a compelling portrayal of a troubled mind. Published here for the first time in the English language, it is presented with Foscolo's highly acclaimed poem, Of Tombs. Banished from his homeland and from the woman he loves, Jacopo Ortis lives with the insufferable feelings of disillusionment and betrayal. Gone are his youthful dreams of literary glory, and in their place only his embittered laughter at fortune, at men, and at God. In the anguish of his state he feels himself compelled to make one final, titanic, and tragic gesture to the rulers of his age.

When everything is gone, and the future abandoned, what remains for us? It is four years since the virus came, killing every adult in its path. Not long after that the electricity failed. Food and water started running out. Fires raged uncontrolled across the country. Now Anna cares for her brother alone in a house hidden in the woods, keeping him safe from 'the Outside', scavenging for food amid the packs of wild dogs that roam their ruined, blackened world. Before their mother died, she told them to love each other and never part. She told them that, when they reach adulthood, the sickness will claim them too. But she also told them that someone, somewhere, will have a cure. When the time comes, Anna knows, they must leave their world and find another. By turns luminous and tender, gripping and horrifying, Anna is a haunting parable of love and loneliness; of the stories we tell to sustain us, and the lengths we will go to in order to stay alive.
