ROMANZO BREVE (75 pagine) - ROMANCE - Un soldato sbarca su un pianeta sottomesso e, tra tante, sceglie la schiava Ester per farne la sua concubina. Cos'ha di così speciale quella donna, per aver colpito un feroce conquistatore dallo sguardo indecifrabile? Due pianeti contrapposti da un odio secolare, un popolo umiliato e asservito dopo una guerra totale. Un conquistatore diverso dagli altri sbarca su un mondo sconfitto e radioattivo, e sceglie una schiava dai capelli rossi per farne la sua concubina e portarla con sé su un eden lontano. Appartengono a due specie umanoidi, ma aliene tra loro, separate dai ricordi di tremende crudeltà e da un'inimicizia viscerale; scoppia tra di loro una potente attrazione fisica, ma non basta. Se non riusciranno a dare spazio anche all'affetto e alla fiducia, nulla potrà salvarli dalla furia omicida e dai complotti manovrati da coloro ai quali hanno giurato fedeltà. Lidia Calvano è medico e psicoterapeuta. Vive a Roma, col marito e la figlia adolescente, in una casa piena all'inverosimile di libri e di computer.

A compelling new novel that combines past and present in a riveting search for the source of the Book of Genesis itself. In her provocative second novel, Spanish author Julia Navarro takes readers on an exhilarating journey across centuries and continents, as an upstart archeologist and a murderous group of conspirators vie for a treasure that will rewrite history–an explosive account of the world’s creation recorded millennia ago by a humble scribe onto the legendary Bible of Clay. Moving back and forth through time, from the tense months preceding the contemporary war in Iraq, to ancient Mesopotamia, to the atrocities of the last century, this tale of vengeance, obsession, and the wholesale plundering of the ancient world’s most priceless treasures is populated by an international cast of political opportunists, ruthless killers, and unsullied seekers of truth. The Bible of Clay is historical fiction at its richest, a sweeping saga that challenges at once both conventional geopolitics and the very foundations of modern religion. From the Hardcover edition.

Incisive grassroots account of the new global revolutions by acclaimed BBC journalist. The world is facing a wave of uprisings, protests and revolutions: Arab dictators swept away, public spaces occupied, slum-dwellers in revolt, cyberspace buzzing with utopian dreams. Events we were told were consigned to history—democratic revolt and social revolution—are being lived by millions of people. In this compelling new book, Paul Mason explores the causes and consequences of this great unrest. From Cairo to Athens, Wall Street and Westminster to Manila, Mason goes in search of the changes in society, technology and human behavior that have propelled a generation onto the streets in search of social justice. In a narrative that blends historical insight with first-person reportage, Mason shines a light on these new forms of activism, from the vast, agile networks of cyberprotest to the culture wars and tent camps of the #occupy movement. The events, says Mason, reflect the expanding power of the individual and call for new political alternatives to elite rule and global poverty.

The Billionaire Boys Club is a secret society of six men who have vowed success—at any cost. Not all of them are old money, but all of them are incredibly wealthy. They’re just not always as successful when it comes to love… As a member of the royal family in a small European country, Griffin Verdi’s presence is requested at the wedding of the century. The scholarly billionaire feels out of his depth in social situations, so a good assistant is required—especially when dealing with royal etiquette. Unfortunately for Griffin, he’s stuck with Maylee Meriweather, a pretty, charming, and thoroughly unsuitable woman who doesn’t know a thing about high society—but she sure can kiss. Her lack of polish may sink Griffin, because after all, even his money can’t buy class. But through Maylee’s eyes, he’s starting to appreciate the simple things in life—if simple means the most complicated woman he’s ever met. Maylee is everything Griffin isn’t—and everything he wants—if he can let down his guard and step outside his sheltered world… The Billionaire Boys Club is breaking all the rules.

Asmara is the capital of Eritrea - a surreally Italian city at the centre of an ex-Italian colony that has been at war with its neighbour Ethiopia (who claim sovereignty over Eritrea) for over ten years. Amidst broken palaces (built by the late Ethiopian emperor Haile Selassie), nomadic desert encampments and war-torn towns, Hill found a god-fearing people remarkably resistant to everything fate has thrown at them. This book is a tribute to their resilience and will stand beside Philip Gouravitch's Rwandan book, WE WISH TO INFORM YOU THAT TOMORROW YOU WILL BE KILLED WITH YOUR FAMILIES, as a classic account of contemporary Africa.
