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

Tired of their school work, three Italian children discuss how they'd rather be a butterfly, cricket or an ant, than do all of the studying they had to do. A mysterious stranger appears and tells the children, "so be it" and the children are transformed into the creatures they wished to be. The story follows the adventures of Gigino (called Ciondolino by the other children) in the world of the ants. He becomes their emperor and then falls to the level of a forlorn exile, wandering around the insect world, until he meets up again with his sister, who had been turned into a butterfly by the mysterious stranger.

Lady Chatterley S Lover The Uncensored Edition

This novel by D. H. Lawrence was first published in 1928 and subsequently banned. Lady Chatterley's Lover is one of the most subversive novels in English Literature. The first edition was printed privately in Florence, Italy, with assistance from Pino Orioli; an unexpurgated edition could not be published openly in the United Kingdom until 1960. (A private edition was issued by Inky Stephensen's Mandrake Press in 1929.) The book soon became notorious for its story of the physical relationship between a working-class man and an upper-class woman, its explicit descriptions of sex, and its use of then-unprintable words. Lady Chatterley's Lover was inspired by the long-standing affair between Frieda, Lawrence's German wife, and an Italian peasant who eventually became her third husband; Lawrence's struggle with sexual impotence; and the circumstances of his and Frieda's courtship and the early years of their marriage.

Diciamoci la verità, Adel Simon è una persona normale. Drammaticamente normale. In più detesta la sua vita, detesta essere quello che è e detesta il suo lavoro a Lione. Allora perché parlare di Adel? Perché per una volta e per puro caso le viene permesso di vivere per qualche giorno la vita che in realtà vorrebbe e di essere non più la semplice correttrice di bozze della Seine Rouge, ma un'avvenente escort dallo scintillante guardaroba estivo. Antoine Morel è stato chiaro: per tre giorni dovrà essere impeccabile, l'assistente ideale. E dovrà seguire il famosissimo Kilian Lefevre come se fosse un'ombra, questo almeno fin quando non riusciranno a fargli firmare un contratto per la collana Suggestive. Cosa sperare di più? E' un sogno, ma c'è un però. Già. Un però davvero insopportabile che si chiama Philippe, costretto a seguirla per impedirle di combinare un pasticcio dopo l'altro. E allora che succede? Be', potreste leggerlo, no? Oppure, se non vi va, so che è uscito l'ultimo della Kleypas. E la Kleypas non tradisce mai! =) No, scherzi a parte, ci terrei a fare una piccola premessa. IMPORTANTE IMPORTANTE LEGGERE ATTENTAMENTE CHE POI DITE MA NON LO SAPEVO! Di norma, nelle sinossi si parla in terza persona. L'autore. Il romanzo. Cose così. Ma io sono solo io e dato che alla tastiera ci sono proprio io, mi fa un po' senso parlare di me come se a scrivere in questo momento fosse un altro. Prima considerazione tra tutte, vorrei approfittare di queste poche righe per ringraziare tutti coloro che mi leggono, che mi hanno letta, che mi leggeranno mai e che non conosco. Ci penso tante di quelle volte, non so mai come fare, perché non potete neanche immaginare quanto siate stati importanti per me e per cose molto più serie di una classifica, di una vendita in più. E questa era la prima premessa. Seconda. Questo libro non è recente, in realtà è il primo romanzo rosa che abbia mai scritto. E lo so già da me che c'è differenza tra questo e ciò che scrivo adesso. Sono cresciuta un po', per fortuna, in gran parte è per merito dei vostri commenti, in parte per chi mi ha seguita fino a oggi e un po' anche per il mio impegno. Quindi se notate delle differenze, anche se ho fatto il possibile perché fosse all'altezza, vi chiedo scusa già da ora, ma questo è un pezzettino del mio passato che mi è tornato tra le mani e l'alternativa era di chiuderlo nel mio computer. Sì, potevo farlo, ma... Non so, non me la sono sentita. Forse perché è solo merito suo se oggi sono qui. E' stato il mio primo passo. Quindi nulla, se vi andrà di leggerlo a prescindere, grazie di cuore. E se così non fosse non fa nulla, ci rincontreremo forse altrove, magari in un altro momento. Ma anche non dovessimo incontrarci mai, nel frattempo vi saluto, e vi auguro buona lettura, qualsiasi sia la copertina, qualsiasi sia il libro, qualsiasi sia l'autore. Con affetto Cecile Bertod

“I wish I had the courage to tell you.” Harper is a big dreamer and he is divided between his homework and the writing of May’s book reports. May is his best friend who continues to postpone everything because she does not have the time to read the books proposed by the school book club. May (aka Tinks) is a sweet girl who is full of energy that never stops, not even in front of an investigation conducted by Jack Pierce for his investigative agency, in which she unofficially works part-time in her spare time or when she is not helping Mrs. Pierce in her bookstore. During an undercover operation May is distracted and gets drunk at a party and Harper cannot help but run to her rescue, but not without consequences. When May starts to look around and go out with more and more guys, in particular Owen O'Brian, the baseball team’s captain, Harper starts having doubts about wanting to remain friends. Under Syd’s guidance, his younger sister, he is compelled to organize a plan to have one last chance to express the feelings he has towards May. Not everything that is planned goes as scripted... It is recommended (but is not indispensable) the reading of the novel “I’ve loved you for some time now”.
