Si può essere una strega senza saperlo? Mina è pronta a giurare di no, però non è facile sfuggire ad un cacciatore di demoni convinto del contrario, soprattutto se ha l’aspetto e il carattere di Roy. Lei è bruttina ma non del tutto stupida, quindi sa per certo di dover stare alla larga dalle assurdità sul soprannaturale e soprattutto... da un uomo tanto bello e sfrontato arrivato da chissà dove. Eppure le basta un’occhiata per non riuscire più a smettere di desiderarlo. Ecco, se lei fosse realmente una strega allora gli strani sogni che fa su di lui sarebbero veri e le basterebbe tenerli nascosti per lasciarlo morire. Mina smette di pensare e si tuffa a scrivere fanfiction, sprofondando nella storia di Gilbert De Vries che è freddo come il marmo e seducente come un peccato mortale, perché è un vampiro. Gilbert è splendido quanto Roy ma le appartiene perché lo ha creato. Eppure all’improvviso oltre lo schermo del computer qualcosa sfugge al controllo di Mina sgusciando nel mondo reale. Si può essere una strega senza saperlo? Ora che avverte una presenza inquietante nelle ombre e che la comunità virtuale FanfictionClub rivela dei segreti allarmanti, Mina non ne è più tanto sicura.

National Book Award Finalist A heartstrong story of family and romance, tribulation and tenacity, set on the High Plains east of Denver. In the small town of Holt, Colorado, a high school teacher is confronted with raising his two boys alone after their mother retreats first to the bedroom, then altogether. A teenage girl—her father long since disappeared, her mother unwilling to have her in the house—is pregnant, alone herself, with nowhere to go. And out in the country, two brothers, elderly bachelors, work the family homestead, the only world they've ever known. From these unsettled lives emerges a vision of life, and of the town and landscape that bind them together—their fates somehow overcoming the powerful circumstances of place and station, their confusion, curiosity, dignity and humor intact and resonant. As the milieu widens to embrace fully four generations, Kent Haruf displays an emotional and aesthetic authority to rival the past masters of a classic American tradition.

This powerful novel by Mo Yan—one of contemporary China’s most famous and prolific writers—is both a stirring love story and an unsparing critique of political corruption during the final years of the Qing Dynasty, China’s last imperial epoch. Sandalwood Death is set during the Boxer Rebellion (1898–1901)—an anti-imperialist struggle waged by North China’s farmers and craftsmen in opposition to Western influence. Against a broad historical canvas, the novel centers on the interplay between its female protagonist, Sun Meiniang, and the three paternal figures in her life. One of these men is her biological father, Sun Bing, an opera virtuoso and a leader of the Boxer Rebellion. As the bitter events surrounding the revolt unfold, we watch Sun Bing march toward his cruel fate, the gruesome “sandalwood punishment,” whose purpose, as in crucifixions, is to keep the condemned individual alive in mind-numbing pain as long as possible. Filled with the sensual imagery and lacerating expressions for which Mo Yan is so celebrated, Sandalwood Death brilliantly exhibits a range of artistic styles, from stylized arias and poetry to the antiquated idiom of late Imperial China to contemporary prose. Its starkly beautiful language is here masterfully rendered into English by renowned translator Howard Goldblatt.
