William Stoner is born at the end of the nineteenth century into a dirt-poor Missouri farming family. Sent to the state university to study agronomy, he instead falls in love with English literature and embraces a scholar’s life, so different from the hardscrabble existence he has known. And yet as the years pass, Stoner encounters a succession of disappointments: marriage into a “proper” family estranges him from his parents; his career is stymied; his wife and daughter turn coldly away from him; a transforming experience of new love ends under threat of scandal. Driven ever deeper within himself, Stoner rediscovers the stoic silence of his forebears and confronts an essential solitude. John Williams’s luminous and deeply moving novel is a work of quiet perfection. William Stoner emerges from it not only as an archetypal American, but as an unlikely existential hero, standing, like a figure in a painting by Edward Hopper, in stark relief against an unforgiving world.

The final entry in award-winning, New York Times bestselling author Colleen Gleason's International Bestselling Gardella Vampire Hunter Series. "Vampires have met their match with Victoria Gardella,"* but now the huntress faces an even greater evil as London is besieged by malevolent entities no mortal was ever meant to encounter... Directly descended from the very first vampire hunter in the Gardella family, Victoria knows she must continue the lineage so humanity will have protectors against the undead. While Sebastian Vioget appears to both the perfect warrior and lover to ensure the Gardella Legacy, Victoria cannot forget Max Pesaro--the former slayer still haunted by the vampire queen Lilith's obsession with him. But it is Lilith's obsession that may save all of humanity. Demons, enemies of both mortals and the undead, have found their way to earth. To defeat them, vampires and slayers must fight side by side. But Lilith wants Max in return for her cooperation--a small price for the world, but too high a price for Victoria. "Addictively readable." --The Chicago Tribune *Kady Cross, bestselling author of The Girl in the Steel Corset

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.

In the summer of 2006, Emma Price watched helplessly as her six-year-old son's red coat was fished out of the River Ouse. It was the tragic story of the year - a little boy, Aiden, wandered away from school during a terrible flood, fell into the river, and drowned. His body was never recovered. Ten years later, Emma has finally rediscovered the joy in life. She's married, pregnant, and in control again... ... until Aiden returns. Too traumatized to speak, he raises endless questions and answers none. Only his body tells the story of his decade-long disappearance. The historic broken bones and injuries cast a mere glimpse into the horrors Aiden has experienced. Aiden never drowned. Aiden was taken. As Emma attempts to reconnect with her now teenage son, she must unmask the monster who took him away from her. But who, in their tiny village, could be capable of such a crime? It's Aiden who has the answers, but he cannot tell the unspeakable. This dark and disturbing psychological novel will appeal to fans of The Widow and The Butterfly Garden.
