“Questa storia racconta di Caterina, che ancora non c’è, e di tutte le Caterine che già ci sono. Dice di una assenza e di molte presenze che cercano uno spazio sicuro dove convivere dentro di me. Dice della infelicità ma anche della meraviglia in essa contenuta.” Caterina non esiste. La figlia che Marta e Fabio da lungo tempo sognano di avere non è mai arrivata, nonostante tutti i progetti e tentativi – dalle visite specialistiche ai cicli ormonali, dalla fecondazione assistita ai consigli degli esperti, veri o presunti – che negli anni hanno tenuto viva la speranza ma anche incrinato la felicità della coppia. Marta, medico competente e appassionato, trascorre intanto le sue giornate nel reparto di ematologia e oncologia pediatrica in cui lavora cercando di salvare i figli degli altri, trasformando, nei momenti migliori, l’ospedale in un mondo quasi magico in cui tenere a bada “il drago del dolore”. In questo commovente e lucidissimo memoir, che parla di malattia e infertilità di coppia con una scrittura limpida e precisa, Marta Verna condivide con i lettori le sue esperienze di medico e di paziente, riuscendo a intrecciare, con grazia, dolore e speranza: “Quanto si impara quando si diventa pazienti, quanto si capisce dell’importanza di dosare ogni singola parola, ogni gesto che si compie”. “Ci fu un tempo in cui fummo nostro malgrado soli nel dolore comune. Poi ci fu un tempo in cui fummo insieme nel dolore condiviso. Poi restò solo il tempo in cui avremmo voluto essere soli per potere smettere di vedere tutto quel dolore”. Perché, nel momento in cui si desidera un figlio, non è più possibile tornare alla dimensione precedente, sia che il figlio arrivi sia che esso non arrivi mai. Ma se Caterina non esiste, esistono invece i pazienti che Marta ha in cura: sono nati e lottano per continuare a vivere Andrea, Giulia, Pesciolino e tutti gli altri bambini che incontriamo in queste pagine toccanti. I bambini a cui Marta ha donato il suo tempo, un po’ di sollievo, un percorso di guarigione... A volte, nei casi più fortunati e preziosi, la possibilità di una vita nuova. “Un libro delicato e potente... perché il dolore può diventare il codice segreto di due innamorati.” - Chiara Gamberale

The itinerant Neoplatonic scholar Giordano Bruno (1548?1600), one of the most fascinating figures of the Renaissance, was burned at the stake for heresy by the Inquisition in Rome on Ash Wednesday in 1600. The primary evidence against him was the book Spaccio de la bestia trionfante, a daring indictment of the church that abounded in references to classical Greek mythology, Egyptian religion (especially the worship of Isis), Hermeticism, magic, and astrology. The author ofømore than sixty works on mathematics, science, ethics, philosophy, metaphysics, the art of memory, and esoteric mysticism, Bruno had a profound impact on Western thought.

With a wit as sharp as a vodka stinger and a heart as free as her spirit, Auntie Mame burst onto the literary scene in 1955--and today remains one of the most unforgettable characters in contemporary fiction. Wildly successful when it was first published in 1955, Patrick Dennis’ Auntie Mame sold over two million copies and stayed put on the New York Times bestseller list for 112 weeks. It was made into a play, a Broadway and a Hollywood musical, and a fabulous movie starring Rosalind Russell. Since then, Mame has taken her rightful place in the pantheon of Great and Important People as the world’s most beloved, madcap, devastatingly sophisticated, and glamorous aunt. She is impossible to resist, and this hilarious story of an orphaned ten-year-old boy sent to live with his aunt is as delicious a read in the twenty-first century as it was in the 1950s. Follow the rollicking adventures of this unflappable flapper as seen through the wide eyes of her young, impressionable nephew and discover anew or for the first time why Mame has made the world a more wonderful place. "Outrageous, hilarious, ribald, sophisticated, slapsatiric." The Denver Post

Now in paperback! Morgante The Epic Adventures of Orlando and His Giant Friend Morgante Luigi Pulci Translated by Joseph Tusiani Introduction and Notes by Edoardo A. Lèbano "Pulci's Morgante is a multilayered text... so rich in witticisms, ribaldry, and word games that it has defied accurate rendering into English. Tusiani, an experienced and effective translator and poet, has met the challenge with a fluid contemporary version, effectively conveying the tempo of the original as well as its comic verve." --F. A. Bassanese, Choice "Luigi Pulci, with Joseph Tusiani's translation and Edoardo A. Lèbano's commentary, has entered the pantheon of Italian epic poetry translated into English thus far infabited only by his three Italian followers: Matteo Maria Boiardo, Ludovico Ariosto, and Torquato Tasso."--Dino S. Cervigni, Italian Quarterly "A reference work that no scholar of the Italian Renaissance can afford to ignore. Lèbano has done justice to Tusiani's text and Tusiani has done justice to Pulci's masterpiece." --Gaetano Cipolla, Annali d'Italianistica A classic picaresque epic detailing the thrilling exploits of Orlando, Morgante is a tale of war and of the calamities that befall the romantic hero, his fellow knights, and their sovereign, Charlemagne. Orlando encounters the fierce Morgante and converts him; the giant then becomes his squire and trusted companion. This long-awaited annotated English translation will lead to a new appreciation of Luigi Pulci's singular epic masterpiece and a reassessment of the author's influence on modern English literature. Luigi Pulci (1432-1484) has been called the first Romantic poet after Dante. Admired by Lord Byron, Pulci was a major influence on the English Romantic poets. He was born in Florence to a noble family and was a member of the literary circle of his friend Lorenzo de Medici. Joseph Tusiani is Distinguished Service Professor (retired) at The City University of New York. His other translations include The Complete Poems of Michelangelo, Tasso's Jerusalem Delivered and Creation of the World, Boccaccio's Nymphs of Fiesole, Leopardi's Canti, and Dante's Lyric Poems. He is also author of several collections of verse in English, Italian, and Latin. Edoardo A. Lèbano, Professor of French and Italian at Indiana University, has published on Luigi Pulci's culture and works. Indiana Masterpiece Editions
