Camilla è giovane e indipendente, ha un ottimo lavoro in una casa di moda, vive da sola in un delizioso appartamento ed è fidanzata con il suo capo che le regala viaggi e divertimenti. La sua vita perfetta, scandita da ritmi frenetici e serate mondane, viene sconvolta dalla notizia della morte di sua sorella con la quale non parla ormai da otto anni. Ma il destino ha in serbo per lei un altro imprevisto. Le viene data in affido una bambina, sua nipote Viola, di cui lei ignorava perfino l’esistenza. Viola si rifiuta di parlare, non comunica con il mondo esterno e trascorre le giornate da sola, chiusa nel suo silenzio. Camilla dovrà imparare a camminare in punta di piedi tra quei dolorosi silenzi, percorrendo la strada dei ricordi fino al giorno in cui sua sorella divenne per lei una nemica. Perché negli occhi verdi e malinconici di quella bambina si nasconde il segreto che ha diviso tanti anni prima le due sorelle, un segreto pesante come un macigno. Ma ci vuole coraggio per riaprire la porta del passato. E proprio quando Camilla penserà di non farcela scoprirà di non essere sola. Il suo misterioso e riservato vicino di casa le farà scoprire un nuovo modo di amare e tornerà a farle battere il cuore. Perché solo un amore profondo può rimarginare le cicatrici di un passato doloroso. Una storia emozionante e intensa, dolce e delicata come una favola...

Loosely based on his own life and his large family, The Tanners follows Simon Tanner as he wanders from job to job, in search of a calling. Along his journey of self-definition, we meet his other siblings: the painter brother whose romantic brooding personality attracts women; the serious professorial oldest brother whose sense of responsibility towards his younger siblings strains his nerves; the teacher sister who hates teaching but can't get herself to risk the stability of her job; and the institutionalized brother whose name is hardly mentioned and whose madness potentially runs through the rest of the family. Through it all, Simon explores the master-servant relationship -- whether in employment or in romance -- that is one of the defining factors of Modernity.

Frank Alpine, a drifter fleeing from his past, runs straight into struggling Brooklyn grocer Morris Bober. Seeing a chance to atone for past sins, Frank becomes Bober's assistant and keeps shop when the owner takes ill. But it is Bober's daughter, Helen, who gives Frank a real reason to stay around, even as he begins to steal from the store. Widely considered as one of the great American-Jewish novels, The Assistant is a classic look at the social and racial divides of a country still in its infancy, and a stunning evocation of the immigrant experience - of cramped circumstances and great expectations.

Shocking Bestseller: The original version of this astonishing tell-all book spent 73 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list, has sold more than 1.25 million copies, and has been translated into 32 languages. New Revelations: Featuring 15 explosive new chapters, this expanded edition of Perkins's classic bestseller brings the story of economic hit men (EHMs) up to date and, chillingly, home to the US. Over 40 percent of the book is new, including chapters identifying today's EHMs and a detailed chronology extensively documenting EHM activity since the first edition was published in 2004. Former economic hit man John Perkins shares new details about the ways he and others cheated countries around the globe out of trillions of dollars. Then he reveals how the deadly EHM cancer he helped create has spread far more widely and deeply than ever in the US and everywhere else—to become the dominant system of business, government, and society today. Finally, he gives an insider view of what we each can do to change it. Economic hit men are the shock troops of what Perkins calls the corporatocracy, a vast network of corporations, banks, colluding governments, and the rich and powerful people tied to them. If the EHMs can't maintain the corrupt status quo through nonviolent coercion, the jackal assassins swoop in. The heart of this book is a completely new section, over 100 pages long, that exposes the fact that all the EHM and jackal tools—false economics, false promises, threats, bribes, extortion, debt, deception, coups, assassinations, unbridled military power—are used around the world today exponentially more than during the era Perkins exposed over a decade ago. The material in this new section ranges from the Seychelles, Honduras, Ecuador, and Libya to Turkey, Western Europe, Vietnam, China, and, in perhaps the most unexpected and sinister development, the United States, where the new EHMs—bankers, lobbyists, corporate executives, and others—“con governments and the public into submitting to policies that make the rich richer and the poor poorer.” But as dark as the story gets, this reformed EHM also provides hope. Perkins offers a detailed list of specific actions each of us can take to transform what he calls a failing Death Economy into a Life Economy that provides sustainable abundance for all.
