"Luce e buio" è il secondo romanzo della Saga Sunrise, che segue il grande successo del primo titolo "Evoluzioni". L'umanità è relegata sottoterra da centinaia di anni in uno scenario post-apocalittico. Due ragazzi, aiutati da un indomito zio e una ragazzina droide dai poteri misteriosi, raggiungono il tanto atteso Livello 5. Iniziano così una nuova avventura, in un ambiente a loro sconosciuto, continuando la ricerca della verità e la personale lotta contro la Torre Centrale. Nuovi amici incroceranno i destini di Jeremy e JJ, ma anche nuove insidie renderanno la loro esperienza tutt'altro che semplice! "Il quinto livello era caratterizzato da una miriade di strade, tubature e rotaie sopraelevate che riempivano letteralmente tutto lo spazio respirabile; era impossibile avere una visione a lunga distanza, tale era la densità delle infrastrutture. Gli edifici erano tutti cubici, attaccati l'un l'altro seguendo regole architettoniche complicate, evidentemente teorizzate da qualche ingegnere robotico."

In a large apartment house in central Rome, two crimes are committed within a matter of days: a burglary, in which a good deal of money and precious jewels are taken, and a murder, as a young woman whose husband is out of town is found with her throat cut. Called in to investigate, melancholy Detective Ciccio, a secret admirer of the murdered woman and a friend of her husband's, discovers that almost everyone in the apartment building is somehow involved in the case, and with each new development the mystery only deepens and broadens. Gadda's sublimely different detective story presents a scathing picture of fascist Italy while tracking the elusiveness of the truth, the impossibility of proof, and the infinite complexity of the workings of fate, showing how they come into conflict with the demands of justice and love. Italo Calvino, Pier Paolo Pasolini, and Alberto Moravia all considered "That Awful Mess on the Via Merulana" to be the great modern Italian novel. Unquestionably, it is a work of universal significance and protean genius: a rich social novel, a comic opera, an act of political resistance, a blazing feat of baroque wordplay, and a haunting story of life and death.

Translated texts are often either uncritically consumed by readers, teacher, and scholars or seen to represent an ineluctable loss, a diminishing of original texts. Translation, however, is a cultural practice, influenced also by social and political imperatives, which can open more doors than it closes. The essays in this book show how the act of translation, when vigilantly and critically attended to, becomes a means for active interrogation.

From New York Times Bestseller, Pepper Winters, comes a delicious sinful hero. “I met the man I wanted. But then he vanished, and a new man claimed me instead. My father approved, my colleagues congratulated, and behind closed doors, I was bedded by a stranger.” Noelle Charlston lives a fairy-tale life: a doting father, a powerful job, and a future blessed with financial security. However, two meetings with two men changes her happy existence forever. First, she meets the man who makes her heart sing. Three years later, she meets the man who makes her blood quiver. Broken-hearted from a teenage romance, Noelle’s freedom is no longer hers. It belongs to the stranger her father believes is her perfect match. The stranger who pulls his lies over everyone he touches. Including her. Seduced and manipulated, Noelle gives into the mysterious Penn Everett. The lies he spins, the truth he hides, the mystery he weaves—it’s all enough to slowly erode the woman she is and turn her into something else. Until her past collides with her present. And it’s her turn to lie. To everyone…including herself.
