Miglior libro dell'anno per "The New York Times review of Books"e "The Huffington Post" «Celeste Ng racconta una storia più grande di qualunque movente possa avere un crimine... Ne emerge il ritratto di una famiglia in lotta per veder riconosciuto il suo posto nella storia.» The New York Times Book Review «Un esordio di grande potenza, una scrittura brillante e precisa: Ng strega il lettore fin dalla prima pagina con il mistero della morte di Lydia.» The Huffington Post È una scena che abbiamo visto spesso al cinema e nelle serie TV: la madre apre la porta della camera della figlia e la trova vuota, il letto intatto. Si teme subito il peggio. Si chiede agli amici, ai vicini, poi si chiama la polizia. La sedicenne Lydia Lee viene ritrovata morta, annegata nel lago vicino a casa: è stata uccisa? E da chi? Oppure si è trattato di un incidente? Perché è uscita di notte? Tutte domande che continuano a tenere il lettore con il fiato sospeso, come in un romanzo giallo. Ma presto altre domande si insinuano nella sua mente, molto meno esplicite ma altrettanto inquietanti. Quello che rende eccezionale questa storia, e ne spiega l’enorme successo negli Stati Uniti e in Gran Bretagna, è il talento dell’esordiente Celeste Ng nel «dire» e «non dire», nello svelare senza inutile enfasi le radici profonde di una tragedia famigliare solo in apparenza ordinaria.

A superior treatment of Machiavellis minor masterpiece! Flaumenhafts beautifully crafted, literal translation aims to capture the original intent of the playwright. Machiavelli himself distinguished carefully between translations and revisions; thus, Flaumenhaft finds a faithful translation essential to conveying Machiavellis thought and to allowing direct access to the work. The Prologue explores the relationship between Machiavellis stage comediespart of the Comedia Erudita of the Italian Renaissanceand his political books. Mandragola focuses on the interplay between personal and political ethics, a major theme throughout his works. The translation includes helpful notes that clarify allusions, language, and context. Names of characters and places, titles and forms of address, and some familiar Italian words and phrases remain in Italian. Passages in Latin, as well as idioms, are reproduced in the notes.

Science In The Kitchen And The Art Of Eating Well

First published in 1891, Pellegrino Artusi?s La scienza in cucina e l?arte di mangier bene has come to be recognized as the most significant Italian cookbook of modern times. It was reprinted thirteen times and had sold more than 52,000 copies in the years before Artusi?s death in 1910, with the number of recipes growing from 475 to 790. And while this figure has not changed, the book has consistently remained in print. Although Artusi was himself of the upper classes and it was doubtful he had ever touched a kitchen utensil or lit a fire under a pot, he wrote the book not for professional chefs, as was the nineteenth-century custom, but for middle-class family cooks: housewives and their domestic helpers. His tone is that of a friendly advisor ? humorous and nonchalant. He indulges in witty anecdotes about many of the recipes, describing his experiences and the historical relevance of particular dishes. Artusi?s masterpiece is not merely a popular cookbook; it is a landmark work in Italian culture. This English edition (first published by Marsilio Publishers in 1997) features a delightful introduction by Luigi Ballerini that traces the fascinating history of the book and explains its importance in the context of Italian history and politics. The illustrations are by the noted Italian artist Giuliano Della Casa.
