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.

Bled dry by interminable warfare, infighting and bloody confrontations with Lord Anomander Rake and his Tiste Andii, the vast, sprawling Malazan empire simmers with discontent. Even its imperial legions yearn for some respite. For Sergeant Whiskeyjack and his Bridgeburners and for Tattersail, sole surviving sorceress of the Second Legion, the aftermath of the siege of Pale should have been a time to mourn the dead. But Darujhistan, last of the Free Cities of Genabackis, still holds out - and Empress Lasseen's ambition knows no bounds. However, it seems the empire is not alone in this great game. Sinister forces gather as the gods themselves prepare to play their hand... Conceived and written on an epic scale, Gardens of the Moon is a breathtaking achievement - a novel in which grand design, a dark and complex mythology, wild and wayward magic and a host of enduring characters combine with thrilling, powerful storytelling to resounding effect. Acclaimed by writers, critics and readers alike, here is the opening chapter in what has been hailed a landmark of epic fantasy: the awesome 'The Malazan Book of the Fallen'.

A bestseller across Europe this international phenomenon is an ambitious, dynamic and intelligent historical novel written by four young Italian men. Set in the time of tremendous religious and political upheaval caused by the Reformation in Europe,Qbegins with Luther nailing his 95 theses on the door of the Wittenberg cathedral -- a historical flash point which would completely disrupt European society. The novel traces the adventures and conflicts of two central characters as they travel across Germany, Italy and the Netherlands. One is an Anabaptist, a member of the most radical Protestant sect. These are the anarchists of the Reformation who revolted against Catholicism and the emerging Reformation church. The other is a Catholic spy and informer. Like the leaders of religious reform, the book’s authors break with tradition -- seeking anonymity behind the pseudonym Luther Blissett. They have successfully created a world of intrigue, violence and intense political and religious passion. A phenomenal bestseller in Italy and Holland –Qis now being translated into eight languages. When it was first published anonymously in Italy, it was widely rumoured to be the work of Umberto Eco.
