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.”

An internationally bestselling, acutely moving story set amidst the atrocities of the Bosnian war, Twice Born masterfully plumbs the depths of love, grief, and the all-consuming power of motherhood. Gemma hasn't been back to Sarajevo in sixteen years. She returns to teach her son Pietro about the city of his birth and the father he never knew. But the visit brings with it impassioned memories of her love affair with Pietro's father, their determination to have a child whatever the cost, and their deep connection to the city even as war threatened to destroy it. Brought to life by an unforgettable cast of characters, Twice Born is a tale of the acts of brutality and generosity that war can inspire, and of the bonds of family fused in times of crisis.

In this gripping page-turner, an ex-agent on the run from her former employers must take one more case to clear her name and save her life. She used to work for the U.S. government, but very few people ever knew that. An expert in her field, she was one of the darkest secrets of an agency so clandestine it doesn't even have a name. And when they decided she was a liability, they came for her without warning. Now she rarely stays in the same place or uses the same name for long. They've killed the only other person she trusted, but something she knows still poses a threat. They want her dead, and soon. When her former handler offers her a way out, she realises it's her only chance to erase the giant target on her back. But it means taking one last job for her ex-employers. To her horror, the information she acquires makes her situation even more dangerous. Resolving to meet the threat head-on, she prepares for the toughest fight of her life but finds herself falling for a man who can only complicate her likelihood of survival. As she sees her choices being rapidly whittled down, she must apply her unique talents in ways she never dreamed of. In this tautly plotted novel, Stephenie Meyer creates a fierce and fascinating new heroine with a very specialised skill set. And she shows once again why she's one of the world's bestselling authors.

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.
