"When I was 12, I didn't think I would get past ninth grade. When I was 14, I didn't think I would live to my twentieth birthday. For me to be here today is a dream beyond my comprehension." Set against the backdrop of the Vietnam War's aftermath, this memoir tells the story of Trinh Do, a boy fighting for survival in newly unified communist Vietnam. Trinh Do was born in Saigon in 1964. His father, a soldier in the South Vietnam Army, was taken to a re-education camp after the communist victory in 1975. His family was thrown out of their home, and Do took care of his mother and younger brothers. He struggled to stay in school; because of his father, Do faced constant prejudice from the communist administration. He was expelled for refusing to betray his classmates in 1978; soon after, his mother arranged for him to escape Vietnam in a fishing boat. After a perilous journey, he landed in Malaysia, where he spent six months in a refugee camp, and then made his way to the United States. His parents attempted a similar escape four years later and were lost to the South China Sea. This memoir tells the story of Do's generation coming of age in a brutal period of Vietnam's history and is illustrated with family photographs. Framed within a complex historical setting, it reveals the cruelty inflicted upon the populace by the Vietnamese communists for the purpose of "internal security." An intimate portrait of daily life under communist rule and an examination of the political and military situation, Do's memoir describes the propaganda and repression through the words of a Vietnamese schoolboy.

Durante una vacanza in Botswana, i due si troveranno coinvolti in una vicenda a sfondo noir.

Lo scenario di questa avventura africana è la zona dell'Okavango, con la sua meravigliosa natura e la sua incredibile fauna, tanto affascinante quanto, talvolta, estremamente pericolosa.

«Siccome sono una che fa un sacco di cazzate, ho pensato di raccontarvele in queste pagine per evitarvi di rifarle, o perlomeno di contenere i danni. Le cazzate, per esempio, io le ho fatte su Facebook: incidenti diplomatici da ribaltare un Tir, amicizie secolari distrutte in un tag, ma anche notifiche che intasano la posta elettronica peggio di un procione caduto nel water e altre bannazioni. Per non parlare dell’amore. ♥ (Di cui invece vi parlerò moltissimo).Come se non bastasse, io sono una che non legge mai e poi mai le istruzioni. Anche se dovessi montare, chessò, un intero aliscafo, lo farei senza dare nemmeno una sbirciata al manuale di montaggio. Poi, se invece dell’aliscafo viene fuori uno schifo, pazienza. Il pericolo (e anche il ridicolo) è il mio mestiere.Eccovi quindi, dalla vostra Gina di fiducia (li avete letti, Cinquanta sbavature di Gigio e Cinquanta smagliature di Gina?) Facebook per romantiche, che è un po’ un romanzo e un po’ un manuale, insomma un indispensabile libretto di distruzioni per gli utenti di Facebook e/o dell’amore.»

Internationally acclaimed as a journalist, war correspondent, interviewer, and novelist, Oriana Fallaci’s public persona reached almost mythic proportions. It is a myth Fallaci herself created, according to Santo L. Aricò, who probes the psychological forces that motivated one of the twentieth century’s most famous and successful women writers. Using his own extensive interviews with the writer, Aricò maps out Fallaci’s journey through life, paying particular attention to her ongoing and painstaking attempts to establish her own mythical status. He first examines her career as a literary journalist, emphasizing the high quality of her writing. From there, he concentrates on how Fallaci’s personal image began to emerge in her writings, as well as the way in which, through her powerful narratives, she catapulted herself into the public eye as her own main character.
