The unbelievable true story of a young girl who is abandoned in the Colombian jungle and finds asylum in the most unlikely of places—with a troop of capuchin monkeys​ In 1954, in a remote mountain village in South America, a little girl was abducted. She was four years old. Marina Chapman was stolen from her housing estate and then abandoned deep in the Colombian jungle. That she survived is a miracle. Two days later, half-drugged, terrified, and starving, she came upon a troop of capuchin monkeys. Acting entirely on instinct, she tried to do what they did: she ate what they ate and copied their actions, and little by little, learned to fend for herself. So begins the story of her five years among the monkeys, during which time she gradually became feral; she lost the ability to speak, lost all inhibition, lost any real sense of being human, replacing the structure of human society with the social mores of her new simian family. But society was eventually to reclaim her. At age ten, she was discovered by a pair of hunters who took her to the lawless Colombian city of Cucuta where, in exchange for a parrot, they sold her to a brothel. When she learned that she was to be groomed for prostitution, she made her plans to escape. But her adventure wasn’t over yet . . . In the vein of Slumdog Millionaire and City of God, this rousing story of a lost child who overcomes the dangers of the wild and the brutality of the streets to finally reclaim her life will astonish readers everywhere.

Iris Grace is a beautiful little girl who, from a very young age, barely communicated, avoided social interaction with other people, and rarely smiled. From both before her diagnosis of autism and after, she seemed trapped in her own world, unable to connect with those around her. One day, her mother brought home a Maine Coon kitten for Iris, even though cats aren’t typically thought of as therapy pets. Thula, named after one of Iris’s favorite African lullabies and meaning “peace” in Zulu, immediately bonded with Iris. Thula knew right away how to assuage Iris when she became overstimulated; when to intervene when Iris became overwhelmed; and how to provide distraction when Iris started heading toward a meltdown. Whether exploring, playing, sleeping, or taking a bath with Iris or accompanying the family on a bike ride, Thula became so much more than a therapy cat. With Thula’s safe companionship, Iris began to talk and interact with her family. This heartwarming story is illustrated with sixty of Iris’s gorgeous impressionistic paintings, works of art that have allowed her to express herself since the age of three. A gifted artist, Iris sees the natural world in a profoundly vivid and visceral way. With Thula by her side, she’ll sit and paint for hours, and the results are stunning. Inspiring and touching, Iris Grace follows the struggles and triumphs of a family—and a miracle cat—as they learn to connect with an amazing child.

Bellissima opera distopica come non mi capitava da tempo di leggere Sei un uomo di trentadue anni, hai una vita serena e nulla potrebbe turbare la placida armonia del tuo quotidiano. Ma t’innamori. T’innamori di lei, che forse non è la più bella, ma certo è come l’hai immaginata da tempo. C’è però un problema: è una donna. Questo è profondamente sbagliato, nel tuo mondo un uomo può amare solo un uomo: “i Simili con i Simili” recitano i sacerdoti del Tempio e, perfino, il Motto del Ministero. Agli occhi del mondo sei un diverso, un pervertito. Però dentro di te senti che non può essere vero. Senti che l’amore che hai per questa donna è un dono troppo prezioso perché venga calpestato e negato. Decidi di reagire e combattere, sacrificando la tua tranquilla, serena vita e il matrimonio con l’uomo che hai sposato. È un normale quartidì di metà brumaio, e hai deciso di cambiare il mondo. Benvenuto in Omocrazia. L'AUTORE: Adriano Bernasconi, nato nel 1981, vive a Brescia. Nella vita di tutti i giorni è insegnante di Arte nelle scuole secondarie di primo grado. Nel tempo libero si dedica con passione a molteplici attività: viaggi, fotografia, teatro, pittura, traduzioni, conferenze, corsi pomeridiani sulla fantasia, illustrazioni, lettura e, ovviamente, scrittura. Ha collaborato con le riviste Living Force ed Endòre. Omocrazia è il suo romanzo d’esordio.
