A cura di Paolo Pinto e Giuseppe GrassoEdizione integrale• Dalla parte di Swann• All’ombra delle fanciulle in fiore• I Guermantes• Sodoma e Gomorra• La Prigioniera• Albertine scomparsa• Il Tempo ritrovatoAlla ricerca del tempo perduto è uno dei grandi capolavori della letteratura del Novecento. Attraverso le pagine di quest’opera monumentale, articolata in sette romanzi (Dalla parte di Swann, All’ombra delle fanciulle in fiore, I Guermantes, Sodoma e Gomorra, La Prigioniera, Albertine scomparsa e Il Tempo ritrovato), ci viene rivelata un’intera società, nell’arco di tempo che va dal 1880 al 1920. Protagonista assoluta è l’aristocrazia, colta nel momento in cui si conclude la sua splendida parabola. Tutti i personaggi sono sostanzialmente dei vinti, a ognuno il tempo ha sottratto qualcosa. Soltanto la memoria sembra sopravvivere alla sua tirannia e solo nell’arte è possibile trovare un compenso al disordine del mondo. Marcel Proustnacque a Parigi nel 1871 da famiglia borghese. Esordì come scrittore su alcune riviste legate al simbolismo. Nel 1893 il poeta Robert de Montesquiou lo introdusse nell’ambiente aristocratico che gli fornì molti modelli per i suoi personaggi. Si interessò di architettura, pittura, scultura. Nel 1902 morì il padre; quando, nel 1905 perse la madre, cui era legato da tenerezza morbosa, l’asma da fieno di cui soffriva fin da bambino divenne cronica. Nel 1906 si trasferì in un appartamento di boulevard Haussmann, dove fece applicare alle pareti della stanza un rivestimento di sughero per proteggersi dal rumore: qui, isolato dal mondo, scrisse Alla ricerca del tempo perduto, il monumentale ciclo di sette romanzi cui lavorò fino agli ultimi giorni della sua vita.

La fuggitiva contiene la cronaca di una guarigione, che però non ha nulla di euforico, poiché necessariamente assume i connotati di una distruzione, di un'agonia. L'autore di questa distruzione, il vero protagonista del volume, è il Tempo, qui visto come un'entità che uccide e cancella, in antitesi a quello che restituisce e che resuscita, oggetto della scoperta finale del Tempo ritrovato. Giovanni Bogliolo

Renee is the concierge of a grand Parisian apartment building, home to members of the great and the good. Over the years she has maintained her carefully constructed persona as someone reliable but totally uncultivated, in keeping, she feels, with society's expectations of what a concierge should be. But beneath this facade lies the real Renee: passionate about culture and the arts, and more knowledgeable in many ways than her employers with their outwardly successful but emotionally void lives. Down in her lodge, apart from weekly visits by her one friend Manuela, Renee lives resigned to her lonely lot with only her cat for company. Meanwhile, several floors up, twelve-year-old Paloma Josse is determined to avoid the pampered and vacuous future laid out for her, and decides to end her life on her thirteenth birthday. But unknown to them both, the sudden death of one of their privileged neighbours will dramatically alter their lives forever. By turn moving and hilarious, this unusual novel became the top-selling book in France in 2007 with sales of over 900,000 copies to-date.

Yukio Mishima’s Spring Snow is the first novel in his masterful tetralogy, The Sea of Fertility. Here we meet Shigekuni Honda, who narrates this epic tale of what he believes are the successive reincarnations of his friend, Kiyoaki Matsugae. It is 1912 in Tokyo, and the hermetic world of the ancient aristocracy is being breached for the first time by outsiders — rich provincial families unburdened by tradition, whose money and vitality make them formidable contenders for social and political power. Shigekuni Honda, an aspiring lawyer and his childhood friend, Kiyoaki Matsugae, are the sons of two such families. As they come of age amidst the growing tensions between old and new, Kiyoaki is plagued by his simultaneous love for and loathing of the spirited young woman Ayakura Satoko. But Kiyoaki’s true feelings only become apparent when her sudden engagement to a royal prince shows him the magnitude of his passion — and leads to a love affair both doomed and inevitable. From the Trade Paperback edition.
