«Giorgio Fontana ha scritto un romanzo - lucido, bellissimo - che ancora mancava. Un romanzo che stavo aspettando. Attraverso la storia del magistrato Colnaghi, il suo sguardo, la sua solitudine, riesce a penetrare la dimensione della vita quotidiana al tempo del terrorismo... Che questo libro delicato, tagliente e doloroso sia stato scritto da un narratore italiano nato nel 1981, lo stesso anno in cui il suo protagonista viene assassinato, è per me fonte di consolazione. E di speranza» (Benedetta Tobagi).

Jennifer Worth came from a sheltered background when she became a midwife in the Docklands in the 1950s. The conditions in which many women gave birth just half a century ago were horrifying, not only because of their grimly impoverished surroundings, but also because of what they were expected to endure. But while Jennifer witnessed brutality and tragedy, she also met with amazing kindness and understanding, tempered by a great deal of Cockney humour. She also earned the confidences of some whose lives were truly stranger, more poignant and more terrifying than could ever be recounted in fiction. Attached to an order of nuns who had been working in the slums since the 1870s, Jennifer tells the story not only of the women she treated, but also of the community of nuns (including one who was accused of stealing jewels from Hatton Garden) and the camaraderie of the midwives with whom she trained. Funny, disturbing and incredibly moving, Jennifer's stories bring to life the colourful world of the East End in the 1950s.

Può lo yoga della risata cambiare, in meglio, la vita di una persona? Secondo Danny Singh sì. Inglese di Londra, anche se l’aspetto tradisce le origini non propriamente british, a Roma da più di 20 anni, in questo libro l’autore si svela raccontando, con molto sense of humour, gli ultimi 10 anni della propria vita e di come, da uomo felice che era, oggi, grazie allo yoga della risata, sia diventato una persona che ama la vita perché sa ridere. Questo libro non è però solo il resoconto di una serie di episodi personali e dunque l’autore ci narra come è nato il suo originalissimo metodo di insegnamento della lingua inglese Laughlearn (ridere e imparare), imitato successivamente da molti formatori nelle più svariate aree disciplinari e di come via via, grazie allo yoga della risata, l’ha messo a punto facendo tesoro delle varie esperienze vissute, ci racconta di come è nato e si è sviluppato lo yoga della risata in Italia, ci mostra, quale parentesi tra un corso e l’altro, il suo apprezzamento per la buona cucina e, soprattutto, dimostra, con tanta umiltà, la sua gratitudine per tutto quello che lo yoga della risata gli ha dato, come insegnante e come uomo.

Andrea Molesini’s exquisite debut novel—winner of the prestigious Campiello Prize—portrays the depths of heroism and horror within a Northern Italian village toward the end of the Great War. While a family’s villa is requisitioned by enemy troops, they are forced to intimately confront war’s injustice as their involvement with its sinister underpinnings grows more and more complex. In the autumn of 1917, Refrontolo—a small community north of Venice—is invaded by Austrian soldiers as the Italian army is pushed to the Piave river. The Spada family owns the largest estate in the area, where orphaned seventeen-year-old Paolo lives with his eccentric grandparents, headstrong aunt, and a loyal staff. With the battlefront nearby, the Spada home become a bastion of resistance, both clashing and cooperating with the military members imposing on their household. When Paolo is recruited to help with a covert operation, his life is put in irrevocable jeopardy. As he bears witness to violence and hostility between enemies, he grows to understand the value of courage, dignity, family bonds, and patriotism during wartime.
