Tiziano Ferro ha quindici anni quando decide di confidare i suoi pensieri a un quaderno. È il diario di un ragazzino come tanti: la scuola, gli amici, i primi amori, la passione per la musica. Fuori dal comune è invece l’intensità con la quale insegue il sogno di incidere un disco. E appena lo realizza fa centro. Ma va tutto troppo veloce: insieme all’emozione dei concerti e allo stupore davanti ai fan, ecco, severe come brutti sogni, la solitudine dei viaggi e delle camere d’albergo, e la paura di non essere all’altezza. È come se da quel momento Tiziano avvertisse una continua spaccatura: da una parte la messa a fuoco del proprio talento, la collaborazione con le più grandi star italiane e internazionali, i riconoscimenti – del pubblico, della critica, dei colleghi –, la folla dei fan, dall’altra la percezione di una inedita solitudine, di una indomabile nostalgia, la lontananza dalla famiglia (soprattutto da Flavio, il fratello) e dagli amici di Latina. Niente pause. Niente stanchezza. Mai. Come il più sensibile dei sismografi, Tiziano registra fedelmente, in questo diario, emozioni e stati d’animo. Con dolente sincerità, e al contempo curiosità, senso dell’umorismo e allegro disincanto, racconta l’altra faccia del successo e anche di sé, senza paura di svelarsi fragile, di mostrare zone d’ombra, contraddizioni, inquietudini. In fondo a questo lungo, appassionato colloquio con se stesso e con il suo pubblico, c’è forse una nuova consapevolezza. Una confessione toccante e sincera di una star che non dimentica di essere prima di tutto Tiziano.

Is having 'somebody to love' the most important thing in your life? Do you constantly believe in Mr Right, and that being with him would guarantee you would no longer feel depressed or lonely? Are you bored with 'nice guys' who are open, honest and dependable? If being in love means being in pain, this book was written for you. Leading relationship and marriage therapist Robin Norwood describes loving too much as a pattern of thoughts and behaviour, which certain women develop as a response to problems from childhood. Many women find themselves repeatedly drawn into unhappy and destructive relationships with men. They then struggle to make these doomed relationships work. This bestselling relationship self-help book investigates and reveals how powerfully addictive these unhealthy relationships are - but also gives a very specific programme for recovery from the disease of loving too much, a problem that plagues women everywhere.

Phil Collins pulls no punches—about himself, his life, or the ecstasy and heartbreak that’s inspired his music. In his much-awaited memoir, Not Dead Yet, he tells the story of his epic career, with an auspicious debut at age 11 in a crowd shot from the Beatles’ legendary film A Hard Day’s Night. A drummer since almost before he could walk, Collins received on the job training in the seedy, thrilling bars and clubs of 1960s swinging London before finally landing the drum seat in Genesis. Soon, he would step into the spotlight on vocals after the departure of Peter Gabriel and begin to stockpile the songs that would rocket him to international fame with the release of Face Value and “In the Air Tonight.” Whether he’s recalling jamming with Eric Clapton and Robert Plant, pulling together a big band fronted by Tony Bennett, or writing the music for Disney’s smash-hit animated Tarzan, Collins’s storytelling chops never waver. And of course he answers the pressing question on everyone’s mind: just what does “Sussudio” mean? Not Dead Yet is Phil Collins’s candid, witty, unvarnished story of the songs and shows, the hits and pans, his marriages and divorces, the ascents to the top of the charts and into the tabloid headlines. As one of only three musicians to sell 100 million records both in a group and as a solo artist, Collins breathes rare air, but has never lost his touch at crafting songs from the heart that touch listeners around the globe. That same touch is on magnificent display here, especially as he unfolds his harrowing descent into darkness after his “official” retirement in 2007, and the profound, enduring love that helped save him. This is Phil Collins as you’ve always known him, but also as you’ve never heard him before. From the Hardcover edition.

»Wenn jemand homosexuell ist und Gott sucht und guten Willens ist, wer bin ich, über ihn zu richten?« Diese Worte von Papst Franziskus ließen die Welt aufhorchen und viele homosexuelle Priester Hoffnung schöpfen. Doch ein grundlegender Wandel in der Haltung der katholischen Kirche gegenüber Homosexualität lässt weiter auf sich warten. Umso mehr Wirbel verursachte das Coming-out des hochrangigen polnischen Priesters Krzysztof Charamsa im Oktober 2015. Charamsa lehrte an der Gregoriana und war Mitglied der Kongregation für die Glaubenslehre. Charamsa, der mit einem Mann zusammenlebt, wählte bewusst den Zeitpunkt kurz vor Beginn der Familiensynode im Vatikan, um auf das »unmenschliche« Verhältnis der Kirche zu Homosexuellen hinzuweisen und auf die Tatsache, dass der Klerus in weiten Teilen homosexuell sei. In seinem Buch berichtet Charamsa von seinem persönlichen Werdegang und seiner Kirchenkarriere, eröffnet erschreckende Einblicke in den Alltag von kirchlicher Ausbildung und Klerus, beschreibt die Absurdität von Doktrinen und Vorschriften wie dem Zölibat. Dabei greift er immer wieder die homophoben Strukturen der katholischen Kirche an. Sein Coming-out wird für ihn zur großen Befreiung. Seine persönliche Geschichte ist die Geschichte "einer Kirche, die besessen ist vom Sex, die der Sex krank macht."

I can't believe I fell for it. It was still dark when I woke up this morning. As soon as my eyes opened I knew where I was. A low-ceilinged rectangular building made entirely of whitewashed concrete. There are six little rooms along the main corridor. There are no windows. No doors. The lift is the only way in or out. What's he going to do to me? What am I going to do? If I'm right, the lift will come down in five minutes. It did. Only this time it wasn't empty . . . Praise for The Bunker Diary: [Kevin Brooks'] pacey plots . . . have made him a cult among teens.

Between 1948 and 1961, Ernest Hemingway and A. E. Hotchner traveled together from New York to Paris to Spain, fished the waters off Cuba, hunted in Idaho, ran with the bulls in Pamplona—and once Hotchner even masqueraded as a matador and Hemingway’s manager in an actual bullfight. Everywhere they went, they talked. For fourteen years, Hotchner and Hemingway shared their thoughts and as Hemingway reminisced about his childhood, recalled the Paris literary scene of the twenties, and recounted the real events that lay behind his fiction, Hotchner took it all down. His notes on the many occasions he spent with his friend Papa—in Venice and Rome, in Key West, on the Riviera, and in Ketchum, Idaho, where Hemingway died by his own hand in 1961—provide the material for this utterly profound, and truthfully compassionate best-selling memoir about the Nobel and Pulitzer Prize-winning author. With a new introduction by the author and with never before published photographs from his personal collection, Papa Hemingway is a mesmerizing portrait.

"A tragedy for our time." - Kirkus Reviews "Mazzantini’s lyrical novel puts a human face on migration and displacement." Booklist When Farid’s beautiful young mother Jamila tries to escape Libya by boat, it is the first time that Farid will see the sea. This is the same sea into which Vito stares from a beach on the opposite side — Farid and Jamila’s destination. But unfortunately, the Mediterranean does not fulfill its promise of a new life for the two young refugees. Instead, it becomes their prison. A tale of moving intensity, Morning Sea is about human migration. It is about the fate of those exiled from their houses, relatives, and roots; about the violence of nature and war; and about the strength of women compelled by injustice to defend their children’s futures. With terse and astute language, Mazzantini captures perfectly the dark, uncertain quality of our times. She asks: when must we commit ourselves to the right of all humans to live with dignity and respect?
