Il sesso è una cosa bella, romantica, appagante... è un fiore. Ma quando viene subito con violenza diventa brutta, volgare, devastante... Diventa un fiore strappato. In questo romanzo, le vite di quattro persone "normali", ruotano attorno ad un'unica, pesante realtà... Lavinia, alle prese con le prime cotte, i voti non sempre brillanti a scuola, l'amore per la musica e per il "suo" Vasco... Camilla, misteriosa, affascinante, intrigante ragazza che ha dato un taglio netto al suo passato... Federica, una pediatra innamorata della sua professione, ma che, quasi beffardamente, non riesce a diventare mamma... La piccola Elisa, che ha solo 5 anni e che adorava le crostate di fragole e i cavalli prima che un orco le rubasse l'innocenza... La perdita della spensieratezza, il dolore e l'acquisizione di una nuova consapevolezza saranno le tappe attraverso le quali, queste creature, giungeranno alla guarigione. Le vite dei protagonisti si intrecciano, in una trama dai risvolti inaspettati... Eleonora sarà il perno centrale di queste lente, meravigliose evoluzioni. Con la sua professionalità e il suo altruismo , riuscirà a far rinascere in loro un fiore nuovo: quello della speranza.

A handful of disparate lives converge at a remote seaside inn: a lovelorn professor, a renowned painter, an inscrutable seductress - and a beautiful young girl, fatally ill, brought to the sea by a desperate father's last hope. An intricate web of destinies and associations begins to reveal itself, but it is not until the arrival of a mysterious sailor called Adams that the truth in all its dreamlike beauty and cruelty becomes clear. Adams may furnish the key to the girl's salvation, but only the fulfilment of his obsessive secret purpose - to answer murder with murder - can conclude the journey that has brought him from the ends of the earth. Alternately playful and profoundly serious, Baricco's novel surges with the hypnotic power of the ocean sea.

One of America’s leading humorists and author of the bestseller Closing Time examines his own obsession with books Joe Queenan became a voracious reader as a means of escape from a joyless childhood in a Philadelphia housing project. In the years since then he has dedicated himself to an assortment of idiosyncratic reading challenges: spending a year reading only short books, spending a year reading books he always suspected he would hate, spending a year reading books he picked with his eyes closed. In One for the Books, Queenan tries to come to terms with his own eccentric reading style—how many more books will he have time to read in his lifetime? Why does he refuse to read books hailed by reviewers as “astonishing”? Why does he refuse to lend out books? Will he ever buy an e-book? Why does he habitually read thirty to forty books simultaneously? Why are there so many people to whom the above questions do not even matter—and what do they read? Acerbically funny yet passionate and oddly affectionate, One for the Books is a reading experience that true book lovers will find unforgettable.
