At the Bar Lume, in a small seaside town where everyone knows everyone else, barman Massimo and four old-timers pass the time, between hands of cards and shots of coffee, chatting, arguing and theorising about the murder of a young woman in their town. When her body is found stuffed in a bin, the girl's lifestyle has everyone thinking her death must have something to do with the world of drug trafficking and dangerous sex she inhabited. The group of old friends at the Bar Lume begin to pull the case apart, forcing barman Massimo into the role of amateur sleuth.

The nineteenth century is drawing to a close. Pellegrino Artusi, Italy's first celebrity chef, has travelled the length and breadth of the country compiling his masterpiece, The Science of Cooking and The Art of Eating Well. When Baron Romualdo Bonaiuti invites him to his Tuscan home to compare notes with his kitchen staff, he's quite looking forward to a break. On arrival he finds everything one might expect: a dramatic Tuscan castle, eccentric aristocrats, spinster aunts and a mysterious guest. Not to mention a murdered butler. Faced with a menagerie of suspects, the local constabularly are baffled. But when the Baron himself is the target of a second murder attempt, Pellegrino realises he may need to put his celebrated culinary skills to use to find the killer.

Long hailed as a seminal work of modernism in the tradition of Joyce and Kafka, and now available in a supple new English translation, Italo Svevo’s charming and splendidly idiosyncratic novel conducts readers deep into one hilariously hyperactive and endlessly self-deluding mind. The mind in question belongs to Zeno Cosini, a neurotic Italian businessman who is writing his confessions at the behest of his psychiatrist. Here are Zeno’s interminable attempts to quit smoking, his courtship of the beautiful yet unresponsive Ada, his unexpected–and unexpectedly happy–marriage to Ada’s homely sister Augusta, and his affair with a shrill-voiced aspiring singer. Relating these misadventures with wry wit and a perspicacity at once unblinking and compassionate, Zeno’s Conscience is a miracle of psychological realism.

Written as an epistolary monologue, Last Letters of Jacopo Ortis is a compelling portrayal of a troubled mind. Published here for the first time in the English language, it is presented with Foscolo's highly acclaimed poem, Of Tombs. Banished from his homeland and from the woman he loves, Jacopo Ortis lives with the insufferable feelings of disillusionment and betrayal. Gone are his youthful dreams of literary glory, and in their place only his embittered laughter at fortune, at men, and at God. In the anguish of his state he feels himself compelled to make one final, titanic, and tragic gesture to the rulers of his age.

Niente di più adatto perciò del Carnevale alla scena di un delitto: maschere dietro cui nascondersi, costumi per assumere un’altra identità sembrano, infatti, ingredienti perfetti per la scena di un «caso». Protagonisti gli investigatori di casa Sellerio.
