«Da far leggere assolutamente soprattutto ai giovani e ai giovanissimi di cui sarà il mondo di domani.» Grazia Cherchi su Il vecchio che leggeva romanzi d’amore «Il vecchio che leggeva romanzi d’amore unisce la malinconica dolcezza di Osvaldo Soriano alla follia di Fitzcarraldo.» La Stampa Il vecchio Antonio José Bolívar vive ai margini della foresta amazzonica ecuadoriana. Ha con sé i ricordi di un’esperienza – finita male – di colono bianco, la fotografia sbiadita della moglie e alcuni romanzi d’amore che legge e rilegge in solitudine. Ma il suo patrimonio è una sapienza speciale che gli viene dall’aver vissuto dentro la grande foresta, insieme agli indios shuar: un accordo intimo con i ritmi e i segreti della natura che i gringos, capaci soltanto di sfruttare e distruggere, non sapranno mai capire. Solo un uomo come lui potrà dunque adempiere al compito ingrato di inseguire e uccidere il tigrillo, il felino che, accecato dal dolore per l’inutile sterminio dei suoi cuccioli, si aggira minaccioso per vendicarsi sull’uomo. Questa è la storia del loro incontro, ma soprattutto è un canto d’amore dedicato all’ultimo luogo in cui la terra preserva intatta la sua verginità. «Un grande narratore capace di cogliere i dettagli più profondi nel magistrale artigianato del raccontare.» La Stampa «Sepúlveda ha il senso della narrazione concisa ed efficace, il gusto delle immagini finemente cesellate, un grande dono dell’evocazione che gli permette di rendere semplici, stilizzandoli, gli esseri e gli avvenimenti più complicati.» Le Monde

Written in 1945, "Focus" was Arthur Miller's first novel and one of the first books to directly confront American anti-Semitism. It remains as chilling and incisive today as it was at the time of its controversial debut. As World War II draws to a close, anti-Semitism is alive and well in Brooklyn, New York. Here, Newman, an American of English descent, floats through a world of multiethnic neighborhoods indifferent to the racism around him. That is, until he begins wearing glasses that render him "Jewish" in the eyes of others, making him the target of anti-Semitic persecution. As he and his wife find friendship and support from a Jewish immigrant, Newman slowly begins to understand the racial hatreds that surround him. "A strong, sincere book bursting with indignation." ("The New York Times Book Review")
