“Sono cresciuta con la regola del niente. Niente giocattoli. Niente bambole. Niente regali. Niente ricorrenze. Niente di niente.” È così che può iniziare una vita, in fuga da una stanza senza quadri alle pareti, da una casa senza dolcezza, senza amore, senza infanzia. E allora la voglia di libertà diventa più forte di tutto, più forte del ricatto e di qualsiasi convenzione. Così cominciano le bravate di chi è costretto a rompere le regole con l’esagerazione, gli anni del terzetto Loredana, Mimì e Renato in perenne scorribanda per Roma, in fuga dagli alberghi, calandosi dalla finestra con le lenzuola annodate perché i soldi per pagare il conto non c’erano. Finché arriveranno, inaspettati, i primi successi, Sei bellissima e Non sono una signora, gli incontri straordinari, l’America di Andy Warhol e ritorno. Il grande amore per un bel tennista svedese e il disastro di un altro sogno infranto. Sempre in guerra, sempre in cerca di altri voli. Ma quale musica leggera! Il palco più difficile è quello di Sanremo, nel 1997, quando Loredana salirà per cantare Luna, per urlare all’Italia dei canone-paganti la rabbia e il dolore per la morte di Mimì, la sorella maggiore che aveva cercato di proteggerla dall’inferno dell’infanzia e che nessuno era stato in grado di proteggere dalla vita. Sono gli anni del buio, della solitudine che fa più paura, del dolore che spezza il fiato. Se la vita non ha fatto sconti a Loredana, lei non fa sconti in questo racconto, in cui restituisce tutta la brutalità e l’esuberanza della sua vita in perenne ribellione, sempre in bilico tra la tragedia e la farsa.

One ordinary spring morning in Reykjavik, Iceland, Thordis Elva kisses her son and partner goodbye before boarding a plane to do a remarkable thing: fly seven thousand miles to South Africa to confront the man who raped her when she was just sixteen. Meanwhile, in Sydney, Australia, Tom Stranger nervously embarks on an equally life-changing journey to meet Thordis, wondering whether he is worthy of this milestone. After exchanging hundreds of searingly honest emails over eight years, Thordis and Tom decided it was time to speak face to face. Coming from opposite sides of the globe, they meet in the middle, in Cape Town, South Africa, a country that is no stranger to violence and the healing power of forgiveness. South of Forgiveness is an unprecedented collaboration between a survivor and a perpetrator, each equally committed to exploring the darkest moment of their lives. It is a true story about being bent but not broken, facing fear with courage, and finding hope even in the most wounded of places. Personable, accessible, and compelling, South of Forgiveness is an intense and refreshing look at a gendered violence, rape culture, personal responsibility, and the effect that patriarchal cultures have on both men and women.

"I was obliged to find a radical way to work -- to get at the real, at the root of the matter," John Cage says in this trio of dialogues, completed just days before his death. His quest for the root of the matter led him beyond the bounds of the conventional in all his musical, written, and visual pieces. The resulting expansion of the definition of art -- with its concomitant emphasis on innovation and invention--earned him a reputation as one of America's most influential contemporary artists. Joan Retallack's conversations with Cage represent the first consideration of his artistic production in its entirety, across genres. Informed by the perspective of age, Cage's comments range freely from his theories of chance and indeterminate composition to his long-time collaboration with Merce Cunningham to the aesthetics of his multimedia works. A composer for whom the whole world -- with its brimming silences and anarchic harmonies -- was a source of music, Cage once claimed, "There is no noise, only sounds." As these interviews attest, that penchant for testing traditions reached far beyond his music. His lifelong project, Retallack writes in her comprehensive introduction, was "dislodging cultural authoritarianism and gridlock by inviting surprising conjunctions within carefully delimited frameworks and processes." Consummate performer to the end, Cage delivers here just such a conjunction -- a tour de force that provides new insights into the man and a clearer view of the status of art in the 20th century.

Winner of the Icelandic Literary Prize, Hotel Silence is a delightful and heartwarming new novel from Auður Ava Ólafsdóttir, a writer who “upends expectations” (New York Times). Told with grace, insight, and humor, this is the story of one man’s surprising mid-life adventure of self-discovery that leads him to find a new reason for being. Jónas Ebeneser is a handy DIY kind of man with a compulsion to fix things, but he can’t seem to fix his own life. On the cusp of turning fifty, divorced, adrift, he’s recently discovered he is not the biological father of his daughter, Gudrun Waterlily, and he has sunk into an existential crisis, losing all will to live. As he visits his senile mother in a nursing home, he secretly muses on how, when, and where to put himself out of his misery. To prevent his only daughter from discovering his body, Jónas decides it’s best to die abroad. Armed with little more than his toolbox and a change of clothes, he flies to an unnamed country where the fumes of war still hover in the air. He books a room at the sparsely occupied Hotel Silence, and there he comes to understands the depths of other people’s scars while beginning to see his wounds in a new light. A celebration of life’s infinite possibilities, of transformations and second chances, Hotel Silence is a rousing story of a man, a community, and a path toward regeneration from the depths of despair.
