Jane of Lantern Hill is the story of an unsatisfied girl living with her mother, aunt and cranky old grandmother in Toronto, Ontario. Jane had always believed her father dead, but one day discovers he is alive and living on Prince Edward Island. When Jane eventually gets to meet her father and spends a summer on the island at Lantern Hill, she believes life couldn’t get any better. This early work by Lucy Maud Montgomery was originally published in 1937 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. Lucy Maud Montgomery was born on 30th November 1874, New London, in the Canadian province of Prince Edward Island. Her mother, Clara Woolner (Macneil), died before Lucy reached the age of two and so she was raised by her maternal grandparents in a family of wealthy Scottish immigrants. In 1908 Montgomery produced her first full-length novel, titled 'Anne of Green Gables'. It was an instant success, and following it up with several sequels, Montgomery became a regular on the best-seller list and an international household name. Montgomery died in Toronto on 24th April 1942.

Now a major motion picture! Pablo Escobar was one of the most terrifying criminal minds of the last century. In the decade before his death in 1993, he reigned as the head of a multinational cocaine industry and brought the Colombian state to its knees, killing thousands of politicians, media personalities, police, and unarmed citizens. In the 1980s, Virginia Vallejo was Colombia’s most famous television celebrity: a top-rated anchorwoman and a twice-divorced socialite who had been courted by the country’s four wealthiest men. In 1982, she interviewed Pablo Escobar on her news program, and soon after, they began a discreet—albeit stormy—romantic relationship. During their five-year affair, Escobar would show Vallejo the vulnerability of presidents, senators, and military leaders seeking to profit from the drug trade. From Vallejo’s privileged perspective and her ability to navigate the global corridors of wealth and high society, Escobar gained the insight to master his manipulation ofColombia’s powerful elite and media. Loving Pablo, Hating Escobar chronicles the birth of Colombia’s drug cartels: the kidnappers, the guerilla groups, and the paramilitary organizations. It is, above everything, a great love story—a deep and painful journeythrough a forbidden relationship—that gives us an intimate vision of thelegendary drug baron who left his mark on Colombia, Latin America, the United States, and the world forever.

Don Giovanni in Sicilia caricatures a stereotypical forty-year-old Sicilian bachelor who lives in a stifling society, is spoiled by his sisters, and is affected by a distorted sexual drive and obsession known as gallismo. Giovanni Percolla, our main character, destroys the myth of the traditional Don Juan, spending his days in idleness. His sexual desire is more imaginative than practical. He has no lasting love affairs, instead he experiences brief encounters with hotel waitresses and prostitutes. The comic effect of the book is created by the discrepancy between the historical lover, Don Juan, and his farcical counterpart transplanted in Fascist Sicily. Even though women are the obsession of Giovanni and his friends, the ladies are the subjects and fantasies of the men who exaggerate reality in order to show off their pride and virility.
