FINALISTA PREMIO CAMPIELLO 2016 «Viene in mente Memorie del sottosuolo di Dostoevskij». Alberto Sebastiani, La Repubblica «Il libro lascia senza fiato [...] Ogni paragone con la romanzeria media sarebbe fuori luogo. Oltre a fare squadra a sé, Tarabbia gioca in un’altra categoria, quella poco affollata dei fuoriclasse». Alessandro Gnocchi, Il Giornale Tra il 1978 e il 1990, mentre in Unione Sovietica il potere si scopriva fragile e una certa visione del mondo si avviava al tramonto, Andrej Čikatilo, marito e padre di famiglia, comunista convinto e lavoratore, mutilava e uccideva nei modi più orrendi almeno cinquantasei persone. Le sue vittime – bambini e ragazzi di entrambi i sessi, ma anche donne – avevano tutte una caratteristica comune: vivevano ai margini della società o non si sapevano adattare alle sue regole. Erano insomma simboli del fallimento dell’Idea comunista, sintomi dell’imminente crollo del Socialismo reale. Questo libro, sospeso tra romanzo e biografia, narra la storia di uno dei più feroci assassini del Novecento attraverso la visionaria, a tratti metafisica ricostruzione della confessione che egli rese in seguito all’arresto. E fa di più. Osa raccontare l’orrore e il fallimento in prima persona: Čikatilo, infatti, in questo libro dice «io». È lui stesso a farci entrare nella propria vita e nella propria testa, a raccontarci le sue pulsioni più segrete, le sue umiliazioni e ossessioni. Il giardino delle mosche è un libro lirico e crudele allo stesso tempo: la storia di un’anima sbagliata, una meditazione sul potere e la sconfitta e, soprattutto, una discesa impietosa fino alle radici del Male.

The disease only affects people sixteen or older. It starts with the symptoms of a cold. Then the skin begins to itch, and spots appear--spots that soon turn into pus-filled boils. But the worst part is the headache, the inner voices that tell you that you need to eat them . . . the young ones. When the Disaster strikes, the world turns upside down for Ed, Jack, Bam and the other students at Rowhurst School. The parents and older siblings they left back at home are dead--or worse. Once the teachers go on the attack, the kids know it's time to escape and make their way to the city. It's got to be better in London . . . or will it be worse?

The classic novel of luxury and depravity, now a major motion picture. From the author of the celebrated dystopian classics Kingdom Come, The Drowned World, and The Drought, High Rise is a prescient story of class warfare. The film adaptation by acclaimed director Ben Wheatley (Sightseers, Kill List) features Academy Award® winner Jeremy Irons; BAFTA Award nominees Tom Hiddleston and Sienna Miller; Luke Evans and Golden Globe Award® winner Elisabeth Moss. When explosive loyalties form inside a luxurious apartment block isolated from the rest of society, modern elevators become fierce battlegrounds and cocktail parties degenerate into marauding attacks on “enemy” floors. In this chilling tale, humanity slips into violent reverse as once-peaceful residents, driven by primal urges, re-create a world ruled by the laws of the jungle.

Note to readers: In the UK, this book is published under the title Hothouse Flower. From beloved New York Times bestselling author Lucinda Riley, a “sweeping, poignant saga that will enthrall fans of The House at Riverton, Rebecca, and Downton Abbey” (Shelf Awareness). Spanning from the 1930s to the present day, from the Wharton Park estate in England to Thailand, this sweeping novel tells the tale of a concert pianist and the aristocratic Crawford family, whose shocking secrets are revealed, leading to devastating consequences. As a child, concert pianist Julia Forrester spent many idyllic hours in the hothouse of Wharton Park, the grand estate reminiscent of Downton Abbey where her grandfather tended exotic orchids. Years later, while struggling with overwhelming grief over the death of her husband and young child, she returns to this tranquil place. There she reunites with Kit Crawford, heir to the estate and her possible salvation. When they discover an old diary, Julia seeks out her grandmother to learn the truth behind a love affair that almost destroyed the estate. Their search takes them back to the 1940s when Harry, a former heir to Wharton Park, married his young society bride, Olivia, on the eve of World War II. When the two lovers are cruelly separated, the impact will be felt for generations to come. This atmospheric story alternates between the magical world of Wharton Park and Thailand during World War II. Filled with twists and turns, passions and lies, and ultimately redemption, The Orchid House is a beautiful, romantic, and poignant novel.

Pin is a bawdy, adolescent cobbler's assistant, both arrogant and insecure who - while the Second World War rages - sings songs and tells jokes to endear himself to the grown-ups of his town - particularly jokes about his sister, who they all know as the town's 'mattress'. Among those his sister sleeps with is a German sailor, and Pin dares to steal his pistol, hiding it among the spiders' nests in an act of rebellion that entangles him in the adults' war.

“Cities, like dreams, are made of desires and fears, even if the thread of their discourse is secret, their rules are absurd, their perspectives deceitful, and everything conceals something else.” — from Invisible Cities In a garden sit the aged Kublai Khan and the young Marco Polo — Mongol emperor and Venetian traveler. Kublai Khan has sensed the end of his empire coming soon. Marco Polo diverts his host with stories of the cities he has seen in his travels around the empire: cities and memory, cities and desire, cities and designs, cities and the dead, cities and the sky, trading cities, hidden cities. As Marco Polo unspools his tales, the emperor detects these fantastic places are more than they appear. “Invisible Cities changed the way we read and what is possible in the balance between poetry and prose . . . The book I would choose as pillow and plate, alone on a desert island.” — Jeanette Winterson
