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.

A chance encounter in New York brings two strangers together: Liat is an idealistic translation student, Hilmi a talented young painter. Together they explore the city, share fantasies, jokes and homemade meals, and fall in love. There is only one problem: Liat is from Israel, Hilmi from Palestine. Keeping their deepening relationship secret, the two lovers build an intimate universe for two in this city far from home. But outside reality can only be kept at bay for so long. After a tempestuous visit from Hilmi's brother, cracks begin to form in the relationship, and their points of difference - Liat's military service, Hilmi's hopes for Palestine's future - threaten to overwhelm their shared present. When they return separately to their divided countries, Liat and Hilmi must decide whether to keep going, or let go. A prizewinning bestseller, but banned in Israeli schools for its frank and tender depiction of a taboo relationship, this is the deeply affecting story of two people trying to bridge one of the most deeply riven borders in the world.

Can you imagine a future where everyone has given up sleeping? From the creator of the television series Red Band Society and author of the international bestseller The Yellow World comes this uniquely special novel. What if I could reveal your secrets with just a glance? And what if I could feel with your heart just by looking at you? And what if --in a single moment-- I could know that we were made for each other? Marcos has just lost his mother, a famous dancer who taught him everything, and he decides that his world can never be the same without her. Just as he is about to make a radical change, a phone call turns his world upside down. Albert Espinosa has a peculiar talent for generating immediate congeniality around him, for shifting people's moods toward the positive and for reconciling them with themselves and the world, when needed. Reviews: «Albert Espinosa lives exclusively in his imagination. He uses it to write, to direct plays and films and to act. His sense of humour is as special as his way of living. An optimism as contagious as a cold.» Teresa Cendrós, El Periódico «If there's one ability Espinosa has had in all of his multifactorial creations it's his capacity to stand in other people's shoes. Empathy is his strength.» Núria Escur, La Vanguardia «Speaking with Albert teaches me many new things, such as "it is not sad to die" and that what is sad is not living, not to live it all (...). He knows what he's talking about and knows how to tell it, and that's why his works help us to live.» Víctor M. Amela, La Vanguardia «Espinosa says what he thinks and feels, taking out any feeling from his closet in the same manner he sticks out his leg. He knows he is alive because of a miracle and that life is a short miracle. How I like this guy. His life, his theatre, his gambles, humour and his courage. There's no one else like him.» Marcos Ordóñez, El País «A militant of life, an engineer of art.» Elena Pita, El Mundo «Armoured in the face of pessimism, Everything You and I Could Have Been If We Weren't You and I shines with the positive outlook that that the author projects on everything he does.» Belén Guinart, El País «Everything You and I Could Have Been If We Weren't You and I presents a fast, direct, uninhibited, almost gestural style, which is a machine of empathy for the reader and is not devoid of humour.» El Correo Español

Widely considered the most popular modern French play, Cyrano de Bergerac has dazzled audiences with its wit and eloquence since it premiered in 1897. Cyrano, a quarrelsome, hot-tempered swordsman, as famous for his dueling skills and pugnacity as for his inordinately long nose, is hopelessly enamored of the beautiful Roxane. She, in turn, is in love with Christian, a handsome but inarticulate and slow-witted suitor. Asked for help by Christian in wooing Roxane, Cyrano pours out his heart in romantic dialogues — delivered under cover of night and dense foliage — and through ardent love letters written in the name of Christian. Presented here in a rich blank verse translation by poet Louis Untermeyer, this beloved romantic comedy will be warmly received by theater buffs as well as students and teachers of drama and literature.

'this is my book and i am writing it by my own hand' The year is eighteen hundred and thirty one when fifteen-year-old Mary begins the difficult task of telling her story. A scrap of a thing with a sharp tongue and hair the colour of milk, Mary leads a harsh life working on her father's farm alongside her three sisters. In the summer she is sent to work for the local vicar's invalid wife, where the reasons why she must record the truth of what happens to her - and the need to record it so urgently - are gradually revealed. 'Haunting, distinctive voices... Mary's spare simple words paint brilliant pictures in the reader's mind . . . Nell Leyshon's imaginative powers are considerable' Independent 'Brontë-esque undertones . . . a disturbing statement on the social constraints faced by 19th-century women' FT 'A small tour de force - a wonderfully convincing voice, and a devastating story told with great skill and economy' Penelope Lively 'I loved it. The Colour of Milk is charming, Brontë-esque, compelling, special and hard to forget. I loved Mary's voice - so inspiring and likeable. Such a hopeful book' Marian Keyes 'Brilliant, devastating and unforgettable' Easy Living Nell Leyshon's first novel, Black Dirt, was longlisted for the Orange Prize, and shortlisted for the Commonwealth prize. Her plays include Comfort me with Apples, which won an Evening Standard Award, and Bedlam, which was the first play written by a woman for Shakespeare's Globe. She writes for BBC Radio 3 and 4, and won the Richard Imison Award for her first radio play. Nell was born in Glastonbury and lives in Dorset.
