“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 BRITISH BOOK INDUSTRY AWARDS NON-FICTION BOOK OF THE YEAR 2016 Whether you're a seasoned woodcutter, or your passion is yet to be kindled, NORWEGIAN WOOD is the perfect fireside read, and an ideal seasonal gift. Chopping and stacking wood is a pastime where the world makes sense once more. Because our relationship to fire is so ancient, so universal, it seems that in learning about wood, you can also learn about life. And who better to impart this wisdom than an expert from Scandinavia, where the extreme climate has obliged generations to hone and share their skills with tools, wood and heat production. Lars Mytting has distilled the wisdom of enthusiasts, from experienced lifelong growers, stackers and burners to researchers and professionals of combustion and tree culture. Part guide to the best practice in every aspect of working with this renewable energy source, part meditation on the human instinct for survival, this definitive handbook on the art of chopping, stacking and drying wood in the Scandinavian way has resonated across the world, with more than half a million copies sold worldwide. NORWEGIAN WOOD and THE NORWEGIAN WOOD ACTIVITY BOOK make the ultimate companion set.

A modern Manhattan fairy tale with the sparkle of a champagne cocktail, Tinsley Mortimer’s debut novel provides a delicious peek into her world of society, fashion, and big-city fame. SOUTHERN GIRL Minty Davenport has always dreamed of skyscrapers, yellow cabs, and a life like Eloise’s in New York City. So upon graduation from college, she bids adieu to Charleston and makes a beeline for the Big Apple. Almost instantly, she finds herself at an event being photographed for Women’s Wear Daily, and her career as a New York society “It Girl” is launched. As Minty navigates the ironclad customs of New York society, a blossoming love life, and a job working for a ruthless and powerful publicist, she finds that the rules a southern belle lives by—being nice to everyone, accentuating her femininity, and minding her manners—don’t necessarily guarantee success in Manhattan. She may indeed be accumulating new friends and opportunities along with boldfaced mentions and a very eligible bachelor boyfriend, but someone is plotting her very public downfall. When Minty gets to the top of the social ladder, she must decide if the glamorous life she thought she wanted is really everything she hoped it would be. Tinsley Mortimer’s insider observations about New York’s elite are deliciously witty, and the heart of her book is that of an irresistibly lovable young woman who is on the brink of finding her dream.

When ten-year-old Enaiatollah Akbari’s small village in Afghanistan falls prey to Taliban rule in early 2000, his mother shepherds the boy across the border into Pakistan but has to leave him there all alone to fend for himself. Thus begins Enaiat’s remarkable and often punish­ing five-year ordeal, which takes him through Iran, Turkey, and Greece before he seeks political asylum in Italy at the age of fifteen. Along the way, Enaiat endures the crippling physical and emotional agony of dangerous border crossings, trekking across bitterly cold mountain pathways for days on end or being stuffed into the false bottom of a truck. But not every­one is as resourceful, resilient, or lucky as Enaiat, and there are many heart-wrenching casualties along the way. Based on Enaiat’s close collaboration with Italian novelist Fabio Geda and expertly rendered in English by an award- winning translator, this novel reconstructs the young boy’s memories, perfectly preserving the childlike perspective and rhythms of an intimate oral history. Told with humor and humanity, In the Sea There Are Crocodiles brilliantly captures Enaiat’s moving and engaging voice and lends urgency to an epic story of hope and survival. From the Hardcover edition.

'So my mind sinks in this immensity: and foundering is sweet in such a sea' Revisited and reorganized over his lifetime, this extraordinary work was described by Leopardi as a 'reliquary' for his ideas, feelings and deepest preoccupations. It encompasses drastic shifts in tone and material, and includes early personal elegies and idylls; radical public poems on history and politics; philosophical satires; his great, dark, despairing odes such as 'To Silvia'; and later masterworks such as 'The Setting of the Moon', written not long before Leopardi's death. Infused with classical allusion and nostalgia, yet disarmingly modern in their spare, meditative style and their sense of alienation and scepticism, the Canti influenced the following two centuries of Western lyric poetry, and inspired thinkers and writers from Schopenhauer and Nietzsche to Beckett and Lowell. Jonathan Galassi's direct new translation sensitively responds to the musicality of the Canti, while his introduction discusses the paradoxes of Leopardi's life and work.
