1942: il Ghetto di Varsavia attraverso gli occhi di un bambino. Un'insolita storia di sogni, paure, giochi e poesia. «L'Olocausto è la mia infanzia e c'erano molte cose belle e divertenti allora, che non si possono avere se si cresce invece in tempo di pace. [...] Volevo scrivere di un bambino nel ghetto che diventa una sorta di Robinson Crusoe in una città vuota: per sopravvivere prende dalle altre case ciò che gli serve come Robinson prendeva dai relitti di altre navi sospinte sulla spiaggia dalle onde». Uri Orlev

L’autobiografia di Uri Orlev, il più grande scrittore israeliano per ragazzi, autore dell’Isola in via degli uccelli. Questa è la storia di come un ragazzo ebreo attraversa l’Olocausto e diventa scrittore. Ma non è un racconto di disperazione, malgrado le atrocità e le tante morti di cui l’autore purtroppo da piccolo è stato testimone, né di sentimentalismi. Orlev ha vissuto esattamente come un bambino qualsiasi, con il coraggio e la straordinaria forza vitale dell’infanzia, come il protagonista di un’avventura, eroe invincibile di un racconto.

Robinson Crusoe is one of the most famous literary characters in history, and his story has spawned hundreds of retellings. Inspired by the life of Alexander Selkirk, a sailor who lived for several years on a Pacific island, the novel tells the story of Crusoe’s survival after shipwreck on an island, interaction with the mainland’s native inhabitants, and eventual rescue. Read variously as economic fable, religious allegory, or imperialist fantasy, Crusoe has never lost its appeal as one of the most compelling adventure stories of all time. In addition to an introduction and helpful notes, this Broadview Edition includes a wide range of appendices that situate Defoe’s 1719 novel amidst castaway narratives, economic treatises, reports of cannibalism, explorations of solitude, and Defoe’s own writings on slavery and the African trade. A final appendix presents images of Crusoe’s rescue of Friday from a dozen of the most significant illustrated editions of the novel published between 1719 and 1920.

Gargantua and Pantagruel is a connected series of five novels written by François Rabelais. It is the story of two giants, a father Gargantua and his son Pantagruel and their adventures, written in an amusing, extravagant, satirical vein. The text features much crudity, scatological humor, and violence. Lists of explicit or vulgar insults fill several chapters. The censors of the Sorbonne stigmatized it as obscene, and in a social climate of increasing religious oppression, it was dealt with suspicion, and contemporaries avoided mentioning it. According to Rabelais, the philosophy of his giant Pantagruel, "Pantagruelism", is rooted in "a certain gaiety of mind pickled in the scorn of fortuitous things." Rabelais's giants are not described as being of any fixed height, as in the first two books of Gulliver's Travels, but vary in size from chapter to chapter to enable a series of astonishing images as though these were tall tales.

This ‘dream-laden and spooked’ (Marina Warner, London Review of Books) story is to many one of the best-loved books of the twentieth century. Munthe spent many years working as a doctor in Southern Italy, labouring unstintingly during typhus, cholera and earthquake disasters. It was during this period that he came across the ruined Tiberian villa of San Michele, perched high above the glittering Bay of Naples on Capri. With the help of Mastro Nicola and his three sons, and with only a charcoal sketch roughly drawn on a garden wall to guide them, Munthe devoted himself to rebuilding the house and chapel. Over five long summers they toiled under a sapphire-blue sky, their mad-cap project leading them to buried skeletons and ancient coins, and to hilarious encounters with a rich cast of vividly-drawn villagers. The Story of San Michele reverberates with the mesmerising hum of a long, hot Italian summer. Peopled with unforgettable characters, it is as brilliantly enjoyable and readable today as it was upon first publication. The book quickly became an international bestseller and has now been translated into more than 30 languages; it is today an established classic, and sales number in the millions.
