'Inferno' è il titolo del quarto romanzo di Dan Brown che ha per protagonista il Professore di Harvard Robert Langdon. Ancora una volta, lo scrittore statunitense proveniente dal New Hampshire, mescola sapientemente le tematiche a lui più congeniali, dando vita ad un thriller dai risvolti misteriosi in cui arte, storia, codici e simboli fanno da padroni. Il docente di Simbologia di Harvard Robert Langdon è di nuovo in Italia. Questa volta si reca nel bel Paese per svolgere delle ricerche sulla 'Divina Commedia' di Dante. Langdon viene risucchiato in un mondo sconvolgente la cui chiave di volta sembra risiedere nel capolavoro del Sommo Poeta, un'opera dai risvolti misteriosi ed oscuri, le cui parole sono pregne di un fascino in grado di travalicare i secoli. Langdon, nel tentativo di risolvere l'enigma in grado di condurlo alla verità, dovrà vedersela con un avversario temibile. Lo scenario in cui si svolge questa nuova avventura avente per protagonista Robert Langdon è caratterizzato dallo splendore dell'arte classica. Il nostro eroe per giungere alla risoluzione del mistero passerà attraverso gli arcani nascosti nelle opere d'arte, individuerà passaggi segreti e, per non far mancare nulla, usufruirà di strumenti scientifici all'avanguardia.

This book presents the remarkable personal journals of a German soldier who participated in Operation Barbarossa and subsequent battles on the Eastern Front, revealing the combat experience of the German-Russian War as seldom seen before. Hans Roth was a member of the anti-tank (Panzerjager) battalion, 299th Infantry Division, attached to Sixth Army, as the invasion of Russia began. Writing as events transpired, he recorded the mystery and tension as the Germans deployed on the Soviet frontier in June 1941. Then a firestorm broke loose as the Wehrmacht tore across the front, forging into the primitive vastness of the East. During the Kiev encirclement, Roth's unit was under constant attack as the Soviets desperately tried to break through the German ring. At one point, after the enemy had finally been beaten, a friend serving with the SS led him to a site where he witnessed civilians being massacred en masse (which may well have been Babi Yar). After suffering through a horrible winter against apparently endless Russian reserves, his division went on the offensive again, this time on the northern wing of "Case Gelb," the German drive toward Stalingrad. In these journals, attacks and counterattacks are described in "you are there" detail, as Roth wrote privately, as if to keep himself sane, knowing that his honest accounts of the horrors in the East could never pass through Wehrmacht censors. When the Soviet counteroffensive of winter 1942 begins, his unit is stationed alongside the Italian 8th Army, and his observations of its collapse, as opposed to the reaction of the German troops sent to stiffen its front, are of special fascination. Roth’s three journals were discovered many years after his disappearance, tucked away in the home of his brother, with whom he was known to have had a deep bond. After his brother’s death, his family discovered them and quickly sent them to Rosel, Roth’s wife. In time, Rosel handed down the journals to Erika, Roth’s only daughter, who had meantime immigrated to America. Hans Roth was doubtlessly working on a fourth journal before he was reported missing in action in July 1944 during the battle known as the Destruction of Army Group Center. Although Roth’s ultimate fate remains unknown, what he did leave behind, now finally revealed, is an incredible firsthand account of the horrific war the Germans waged in Russia.

“Cities, like dreams, are made of desires and fears, even if the thread of their discourse is secret, their rules are absurd, their perspectives deceitful, and everything conceals something else.” — from Invisible Cities In a garden sit the aged Kublai Khan and the young Marco Polo — Mongol emperor and Venetian traveler. Kublai Khan has sensed the end of his empire coming soon. Marco Polo diverts his host with stories of the cities he has seen in his travels around the empire: cities and memory, cities and desire, cities and designs, cities and the dead, cities and the sky, trading cities, hidden cities. As Marco Polo unspools his tales, the emperor detects these fantastic places are more than they appear. “Invisible Cities changed the way we read and what is possible in the balance between poetry and prose . . . The book I would choose as pillow and plate, alone on a desert island.” — Jeanette Winterson
