Winner of the 1974 National Book Award “A screaming comes across the sky. . .” A few months after the Germans’ secret V-2 rocket bombs begin falling on London, British Intelligence discovers that a map of the city pinpointing the sexual conquests of one Lieutenant Tyrone Slothrop, U.S. Army, corresponds identically to a map showing the V-2 impact sites. The implications of this discovery will launch Slothrop on an amazing journey across war-torn Europe, fleeing an international cabal of military-industrial superpowers, in search of the mysterious Rocket 00000, through a wildly comic extravaganza that has been hailed in The New Republic as “the most profound and accomplished American novel since the end of World War II.”

Nel paesaggio mediatico contemporaneo il tragico è stato sostituito dall’osceno. Il trionfo dell’oscenità di massa sull’arte tragica rende progressivamente impossibile una rappresentazione pietosa, partecipe e catartica della sofferenza umana. Questo profondo rivolgimento culturale precipitò negli ultimi decenni del Novecento. Mai come a partire da quel momento le occasioni di assistere allo spettacolo della sofferenza altrui sarebbero state tanto numerose, quotidiane, immediate. In un primo momento ce ne sentimmo travolti. Ben presto, però, l’uomo che abitava il mediascape di fine millennio si trasformò in un animale anfibio, capace di vivere simultaneamente in due ambienti profondamente diversi: all’asciutto del proprio mondo reale, pacifico e protetto ma anche immerso nella palude insanguinata da vittime di apocalissi lontane. La nostra pelle squamata si sarebbe presto dimostrata perfettamente impermeabile a entrambi gli ambienti. Qualsiasi tragedia altrui ci sarebbe scivolata addosso. Analizzando e comparando romanzi, film, fotografie e televisione, questi saggi di Scurati scavano sotto il fasullo senso umanitario di una società gaudente, ludica, stupidamente euforica, arrogantemente dimentica dell’angoscia del morire, una cultura che nella panacea della visibilità elettronica s’illude di poter mettere a morte la morte, di potersi emancipare dal funereo, luttuoso lavoro di sopravvivenza attraverso l’immagine, quel lavoro iniziato da nostri progenitori, millenni or sono, in un mondo popolato da ombre di belve e di avi defunti.

An innocent exchange with one of her fans, signed with an “XO,” leads Kayleigh into the dangerous and terrifying realm of obsession. Edwin Sharp thinks Kayleigh’s songs contain messages that speak directly to him. Despite her clear rejection and threats from lawyers and law enforcers, he remains convinced that “Your Shadow” was written just for him, and he announces he’s coming for Kayleigh.

From New York Times bestselling author Isabel Allende, “a magical and sweeping” (Publishers Weekly, starred review) love story and multigenerational epic that stretches from San Francisco in the present-day to Poland and the United States during World War II. In 1939, as Poland falls under the shadow of the Nazis, young Alma Belasco’s parents send her away to live in safety with an aunt and uncle in their opulent mansion in San Francisco. There, as the rest of the world goes to war, she encounters Ichimei Fukuda, the quiet and gentle son of the family’s Japanese gardener. Unnoticed by those around them, a tender love affair begins to blossom. Following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, the two are cruelly pulled apart as Ichimei and his family—like thousands of other Japanese Americans—are declared enemies and forcibly relocated to internment camps run by the United States government. Throughout their lifetimes, Alma and Ichimei reunite again and again, but theirs is a love that they are forever forced to hide from the world. Decades later, Alma is nearing the end of her long and eventful life. Irina Bazili, a care worker struggling to come to terms with her own troubled past, meets the elderly woman and her grandson, Seth, at San Francisco’s charmingly eccentric Lark House nursing home. As Irina and Seth forge a friendship, they become intrigued by a series of mysterious gifts and letters sent to Alma, eventually learning about Ichimei and this extraordinary secret passion that has endured for nearly seventy years. Sweeping through time and spanning generations and continents, The Japanese Lover is written with the same keen understanding of her characters that Isabel Allende has been known for since her landmark first novel The House of the Spirits. The Japanese Lover is a moving tribute to the constancy of the human heart in a world of unceasing change.
