In un luogo fatto di polvere, dove ogni cosa ha un soprannome, dove il quartiere in cui sono nati e cresciuti è chiamato «la Fortezza», Beatrice e Alfredo sono per tutti «i gemelli». I due però non hanno in comune il sangue, ma qualcosa di più profondo. A legarli è un'amicizia ruvida come l'intonaco sbrecciato dei palazzi in cui abitano, nata quando erano bambini e sopravvissuta a tutto ciò che di oscuro la vita può regalare. Un'amicizia che cresce con loro fino a diventare un amore selvaggio, graffiante come vetro spezzato, delicato e luminoso come un girasole. Un amore nato nonostante tutto e tutti, nonostante loro stessi per primi. Ma alle soglie dei vent'anni, la voce di Beatrice è stanca e strozzata. E il cuore fragile di Alfredo ha perso i suoi colori. Perché tutto sta per cambiare. Un romanzo d'esordio intenso e bruciante. Una voce narrante che rimarrà a lungo nella mente e nel cuore dei lettori.

An unsentimental depiction of the poverty and chaos of life in the slums of 1950s postwar Rome, this novel follows Ricetto, an Italian youth, and his gang who survive by their wits, their cruelty, and their instincts for survival. Their lives are shaped by hunger, theft, betrayal, and prostitution, and they celebrate their triumphs with brutal abandon and die bleak deaths. This harsh world is portrayed with an understanding that humanity and even humor can exist amidst a hard and amoral society. A novel that caused a scandal upon its first publication more than 50 years ago, this new translation eloquently captures the gritty Roman slang of the Italian original and tells a story that still resonates powerfully to this day.

The author of the New York Times bestselling The Little Giant of Aberdeen County returns with a magic-tinged tale of dreams, family secrets, and betrayals on a New England salt farm. In the isolated Cape Cod village of Prospect, the Gilly sisters are as different as can be. Jo, a fierce and quiet loner, is devoted to the mysteries of her family's salt farm, while Claire is popular, pretty, and yearns to flee the salt at any cost. But the Gilly land hides a dark legacy that proves impossible to escape. Although the community half-suspects the Gilly sisters might be witches, it doesn't stop Whit Turner, the town's wealthiest bachelor, from forcing his way into their lives. It's Jo who first steals Whit's heart, but it is Claire--heartbroken over her high school sweetheart--who marries him. Years later, estranged from her family, Claire finds herself thrust back onto the farm with the last person she would have chosen: her husband's pregnant mistress. Suddenly, alliances change, old loves return, and new battle lines are drawn. What the Gilly sisters learn about each other, the land around them, and the power of the salt, will not only change each of their lives forever, it will also alter Gilly history for good.

Marcantonio Ravì has a plan: to give his beautiful daughter, Stellina, in marriage to the elderly but hugely wealthy Don Diego Alcozèr. Justifying his decision to appalled family and neighbors, he encourages the lazy Pepè Alletto to take a longer view—in only a few years, following Don Diego’s death, a younger, more suitable husband can be found. Stellina herself is bitterly opposed to the marriage, fainting at her wedding party; and events spiral further out of control when Pepè’s bullish lawyer brother-in-law becomes involved.

Rebus is also asked to act as a go-between for gangster 'Big Ger' Cafferty.
