“Goodbye, said the fox. And now here is my secret, a very simple secret. It is only with the heart that one can see rightly. What is essential is invisible to the eye.” Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince The Little Prince first published in 1943, is a novella and the most famous work of the French aristocrat, writer, poet and pioneering aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. The novella is both the most read and most translated book in the French language, and was voted the best book of the 20th century in France. Translated into more than 250 languages and dialects selling over a million copies per year with sales totalling more than 140 million copies worldwide, it has become one of the best-selling books ever published. Saint-Exupéry, a laureate of several of France's highest literary awards and a reserve military pilot at the start of the Second World War, wrote and illustrated the manuscript while exiled in the United States after the Fall of France. He had travelled there on a personal mission to persuade its government to quickly enter the war against Nazi Germany. In the midst of personal upheavals and failing health he produced almost half of the writings he would be remembered for, including a tender tale of loneliness, friendship, love and loss, in the form of a young prince fallen to Earth.

#1 NATIONAL BESTSELLER Far more than a superb memoir about the highest levels of professional tennis, Open is the engrossing story of a remarkable life. Andre Agassi had his life mapped out for him before he left the crib. Groomed to be a tennis champion by his moody and demanding father, by the age of twenty-two Agassi had won the first of his eight grand slams and achieved wealth, celebrity, and the game’s highest honors. But as he reveals in this searching autobiography, off the court he was often unhappy and confused, unfulfilled by his great achievements in a sport he had come to resent. Agassi writes candidly about his early success and his uncomfortable relationship with fame, his marriage to Brooke Shields, his growing interest in philanthropy, and—described in haunting, point-by-point detail—the highs and lows of his celebrated career. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Traduzione di Fausta Cataldi Villari Edizioni integrali Per combattere la concorrenza dei mezzi di trasporto terrestri, bisognava volare di notte e, nei tempi eroici dell’aviazione, non era difficile rimetterci la vita. E allora perché Fabien ha accettato di alzarsi in volo, in condizioni estreme, sapendo che potrebbe essere l’ultima volta, mentre chi lo aspetta muore d’angoscia? Per amore del prossimo? Per senso del dovere? Certo, sono motivazioni che possono smuovere le montagne, ma ce n’è un’altra, ancora più forte, che ha spinto l’uomo ad andare sempre oltre i suoi limiti: la sfida a questi limiti, all’ignoto, al mai tentato prima. Saint-Exupéry racconta una storia di cui tante volte era stato protagonista, perché anche lui volava di notte per portare la posta, prima e durante la guerra. Ma non si sentiva un eroe, non pensava di sacrificarsi per gli altri: semplicemente, non poteva sottrarsi alla sfida. Accettarla e andare “oltre” aveva forse più valore della vita stessa. Vol de nuit, scritto nel 1931, ottenne il premio Femina nello stesso anno e rese celebre il suo autore. L’aviatore, del 1926, è il primo racconto di Antoine de Saint-Exupéry e racconta la storia di Jacques Bernis, divenuto pilota di aerei per sfuggire al grigiore della vita in provincia.Antoine de Saint-Exupéry(Lione, 29 giugno 1900 – mar Mediterraneo, 31 luglio 1944), è stato uno scrittore e aviatore francese. Oltre a Il Piccolo Principe, uno dei libri più letti e amati nel mondo, è anche autore di Volo di notte e L’aviatore pubblicati in volume unico da Newton Compton editori.

Cura e traduzione di Riccardo Reim Edizione integrale Una bizzarra coincidenza, una prodigiosa rassomiglianza, uno scambio di vestiti fatto per gioco da due ragazzi... Su tali semplici elementi è costruito questo celebre libro di Mark Twain, che attinge a un motivo ricorrente della narrativa universale: lo scambio di ruoli. È quanto fanno Edward, erede al trono d’Inghilterra, e il piccolo vagabondo Tom Canty, rischiando, senza volere, di non poter più tornare indietro, vittime di loschi trafficanti o di funzionari ottusi. Tom e Edward (il futuro Edoardo VI, figlio di Enrico VIII, che passerà alla storia come uno dei sovrani più illuminati) vivranno innumerevoli avventure, e quindi la “favola con morale” troverà il suo lieto fine. Twain conduce la narrazione con grande perizia e con il suo consueto humour, nonché con una salutare dose di antidoto democratico alle romantiche idealizzazioni di un passato che l’America aveva abiurato.Mark Twainpseudonimo di Samuel Langhorne Clemens, nacque a Florida (Missouri) nel 1835. Ex tipografo ed ex battelliere, scrisse, dopo la guerra civile, i suoi capolavori, legati alla stagione dell’infanzia e al paesaggio del Mississippi: Le avventure di Tom Sawyer (1876) e Le avventure di Huckleberry Finn (1884), entrambi pubblicati dalla Newton Compton. Morì a Redding nel 1910.

"Tales, " by Edgar Allan Poe, is a collection of 25 stories from the literary father of the mysterious and the macabre. These individual pieces, which include "The Fall of the House of Usher, " and "Silence: A Fable, " together make up the body of both "Tales of the Grotesque and Arabesque" and "Tales of the Folio Club." Taken as a whole, Poe's writing has cast its dark and exquisite shadow over many genres of literature, from the mysteries of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to the science fiction of Jules Verne, but in this collection the author's ability to explore the darker corners of the readers' psyche comes to the fore. Such is the power of his storytelling that his tales retain their eerie power to delight and terrify in equal measure more than a century and a half after his death.
