«Un romanzo dovrei venire a scrivere e nient’altro. Non resta che sublimare tutta questa roba in qualcosa che non sia l’articoletto. Non troverò il tempo?» annotava Terzani. E quasi come una favola, sanguinaria eppure ricca di poesia e fragranze tropicali, Fantasmi inizia tra pipistrelli, palazzi reali ed elefanti semisacri. Testimonianza unica di un Tiziano Terzani reporter, giovane ed entusiasta, interessato ai «fatti», che con stupore si avvicina a ogni dettaglio e crede ancora sia possibile influenzare la Storia, questo testo ricostruisce in presa diretta l’olocausto che trasformò il paese nel regno di un orrore onnipresente perché «l’orrore siamo noi». I suoi «dispacci» dalla Cambogia, per la prima volta raccolti in forma di libro, come perle di una collana, giorno dopo giorno, ricostruiscono non solo la storia che ha trasformato un intero paese ma anche l’uomo che l’ha seguita per raccontarla. Da qui infatti prende corpo la svolta che lo porterà ad abbandonare ogni fiducia nell’ideologia, in cui pure aveva creduto, per iniziare un nuovo cammino di ricerca. Nella Cambogia – unico paese dell’Asia che aveva continuato a visitare per 25 anni – Terzani vedeva in piccolo la tragedia del mondo in grande. Fantasmi è dunque un testo imprescindibile per capire le ragioni che lo hanno spinto a voltare le spalle al mondo e cambiare direzione. «I cambogiani lo sanno da secoli: la vita è una ruota e la Storia non è progresso», ricordava già allora, prima che altre guerre di invasione e altre lotte fratricide conferissero un’eco per sempre attuale alle sue parole.

Warned by a Hong Kong fortune-teller not to risk flying for a whole year, Tiziano Terzani — a vastly experienced Asia correspondent — took what he called “the first step into an unknown world. . . . It turned out to be one of the most extraordinary years I have ever spent: I was marked for death, and instead I was reborn.” Traveling by foot, boat, bus, car, and train, he visited Burma, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, China, Mongolia, Japan, Indonesia, Singapore, and Malaysia. Geography expanded under his feet. He consulted soothsayers, sorcerers, and shamans and received much advice — some wise, some otherwise — about his future. With time to think, he learned to understand, respect, and fear for older ways of life and beliefs now threatened by the crasser forms of Western modernity. He rediscovered a place he had been reporting on for decades. And it reinvigorated him. The result is an immensely engaging, insightful, and idiosyncratic journey, filled with unexpected delights and strange encounters. A bestseller and major prizewinner in Italy, A Fortune-Teller Told Me is a powerful warning against the new missionaries of materialism. From the Hardcover edition.

Karen Coates and Jerry Redfern spent more than seven years traveling in Laos, talking to farmers, scrap-metal hunters, people who make and use tools from UXO, people who hunt for death beneath the earth and render it harmless. With their words and photographs, they reveal the beauty of Laos, the strength of Laotians, and the commitment of bomb-disposal teams. People take precedence in this account, which is deeply personal without ever becoming a polemic.

In Peru, archaeologist Dr. Conrad Yeats is apprehended by U.S. Special Forces...to unlock the final key to the origins of the human race. In Rome, the pope summons environmental activist Dr. Serena Serghetti to the Vatican...and reveals a terrifying vision of apocalyptic disaster.
