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'.

“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

In 1958, author Aldous Huxley wrote what some would call a sequel to his novel Brave New World (1932) but the sequel did not revisit the story or the characters. Instead, Huxley chose to revisit the world he created in a set of twelve essays in which he meditates on how his fantasy seemed to be becoming a reality and far more quickly than he ever imagined. That Huxley’s book Brave New World had been largely prophetic about a dystopian future a great distress to Huxley. By 1958, Huxley was sixty-four-years old; the world had been transformed by the events of World War II and the terrifying advent of nuclear weapons. Peeking behind the Iron Curtain where people were not free but instead governed by Totalitarianism, Huxley could only bow to grim prophecy of his friend, author George Orwell, (author of the book 1984). It struck Huxley that people were trading their freedom and individualism in exchange for the illusory comfort of sensory pleasure--just as he had predicted in Brave New World. Huxley despairs of contemporary humankind’s willingness to surrender freedom for pleasure. Huxley worried that the rallying cry, “Give me liberty or give me death” could be easily replaced by “Give me television and hamburgers, but don’t bother me with the responsibilities of liberty.” Huxley saw hope in education; education that could teach people to see beyond the easy slogans and efficient ends and anesthetic-like influence of propaganda.
