Museum curator Summer Hawthorne considered the exquisite ice-blue ceramic bowl given to her by her beloved Japanese nanny a treasure of sentimental value—until somebody tried to kill her for it. The priceless relic is about to ignite a global power struggle that must be stopped at all costs. It's a desperate situation, and international operative Takashi O'Brien has received his directive: everybody is expendable. Everybody. Especially the woman who is getting dangerously under his skin as the lethal game crosses the Pacific to the remote and beautiful mountains of Japan, where the truth can be as seductive as it is deadly….

Nel 1972, al culmine di una crisi che è insieme professionale e artistica, Goldoni lascia Venezia per un contratto biennale alla Comédie Italienne di Parigi. L’impresa non è facile: attori diffidenti, pubblico indifferente, un contesto completamente diverso da quello in cui è nato il suo teatro. Dall’esigenza di incontrare il gusto dei francesi, nasce Il ventaglio, una commedia agile e festosa, al cui centro non sta un personaggio, ma un oggetto: un ventaglio, pegno di due innamorati, la cui perdita scatena una serie di equivoci, gelosie e ripicche, che si risolvono in un lieto fine. Un divertente gioco scenico orchestrato con magistrale perizia.

Life never ceases to give homage to Jacques Tati. Be it on the beach, in an old part of town, or in the glamour of a modern city, we find everywhere the gags which have peopled such films as Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot and Playtime. If a silhouette crosses us at a street corner, we are quickly reminded of certain scenes in Mon Oncle. Tati was a great film comic who deserves to be placed on the same level as Keaton and Chaplin. Tati created Monsieur Hulot who has now entered the world of screen legends. Above all, Jacques Tati was an exemplary artist who was not scared of taking risks or to invest his entire being in the making of his films. From Jour de fte to Parade, there is a Tati-World which this study invites us to discover. Michael Chion is a critic at Les Cashiers du cinma and has published numerous works which develop his theories on the art of sound in cinema (La Voix au cinma and Le Son au cinma). A musical composer, Michael Chion is also the author of ponine, which was awarded the Prix Jean-Vigo in 1985.

A grand sweep of history by the late Fernand Braudel–one of the twentieth century’s most influential historians–Memory and the Mediterranean chronicles the Mediterranean’s immeasurably rich past during the foundational period from prehistory to classical antiquity, illuminating nothing less than the bedrock of our civilization and the very origins of Western culture. Essential for historians, yet written explicitly for the general reader, this magnificent account of the ebb and flow of cultures shaped by the Mediterranean takes us from the great sea’s geologic beginnings through the ancient civilizations that flourished along its shores. Moving with ease from Mesopotamia and Egypt to the flowering of Crete and the early Aegean peoples, and culminating in the prodigious achievements of ancient Greece and Rome, Braudel conveys in absorbing detail the geography and climate of the region over the course of millennia while brilliantly explaining the larger forces that gave rise to agriculture, writing, sea travel, trade, and, ultimately, the emergence of empires. Impressive in scope and gracefully written, Memory and the Mediterranean is an endlessly enriching work of history by a legend in the field. From the Trade Paperback edition.
