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.

A superior treatment of Machiavellis minor masterpiece! Flaumenhafts beautifully crafted, literal translation aims to capture the original intent of the playwright. Machiavelli himself distinguished carefully between translations and revisions; thus, Flaumenhaft finds a faithful translation essential to conveying Machiavellis thought and to allowing direct access to the work. The Prologue explores the relationship between Machiavellis stage comediespart of the Comedia Erudita of the Italian Renaissanceand his political books. Mandragola focuses on the interplay between personal and political ethics, a major theme throughout his works. The translation includes helpful notes that clarify allusions, language, and context. Names of characters and places, titles and forms of address, and some familiar Italian words and phrases remain in Italian. Passages in Latin, as well as idioms, are reproduced in the notes.

Jean-Louis Fournier did not expect to have a disabled child. He certainly did not expect to have two. But that is precisely what happened to this wry French humorist, and his attempts to live and cope with his Mathieu and Thomas, both facing extremely debilitating physical and mental challenges, is the subject of this brave and heartbreaking book. Fournier recalls the life he imagined having with his sons--but his boys will never really grow up, and he mourns the loss of every memory he thought he'd have. Though a devoted father, he does not shy away from exploring the limits of his love, the countless times he is filled with frustration and disappointment with no relief in sight. Mathieu and Thomas can barely communicate, and each in turn repeats learned phrases, such as "Where we going, Daddy?" (a favorite in the car) in what feels to Fournier to be an eternal loop. In WhereWe Going, Daddy? Fournier reveals everything, and that is perhaps his most remarkable quality. He does not hide behind a mask of cliché, but gives voice to the darkness that comes with disability, and the rare moments of light. Through short, powerful vignettes Jean-Louis manages his grief with cynicism and humor. For parents of disabled children, this book will offer some relief from the courage they must garner every day, a chance to let down their guard, laugh at themselves, and embrace even the ugly emotions they feel. For the rest of us, it's an unsettling and heartfelt glimpse into an otherwise unimaginable life.

A spare yet eloquent, bittersweet yet inspiring story of a man and a woman who, in advanced age, come together to wrestle with the events of their lives and their hopes for the imminent future. In the familiar setting of Holt, Colorado, home to all of Kent Haruf’s inimitable fiction, Addie Moore pays an unexpected visit to a neighbor, Louis Waters. Her husband died years ago, as did his wife, and in such a small town they naturally have known of each other for decades; in fact, Addie was quite fond of Louis’s wife. His daughter lives hours away in Colorado Springs, her son even farther away in Grand Junction, and Addie and Louis have long been living alone in houses now empty of family, the nights so terribly lonely, especially with no one to talk with. Their brave adventures—their pleasures and their difficulties—are hugely involving and truly resonant, making Our Souls at Night the perfect final installment to this beloved writer’s enduring contribution to American literature. This eBook edition includes a Reading Group Guide.

But what do we really know about other people? Set against the stunning Sardinian landscape of rugged mountains and villages lost in time, this internationally bestselling novel is a multi-generational family saga about love, lust and country. An young unnamed woman reflects the life of her grandmother, a bewitching and eccentric figure whose abiding search for love spans much of the twentieth century. In 1943, as American bombs fall on the city of Cagliari, the young woman’s grandmother is thirty and already considered an old maid, unmarried and still living at home with her parents. But when the bombing ceases, and despite her protests, her father forces her to marry the first man to propose, an older widower she doesn’t love. After suffering several miscarriages, she is sent for treatment at a spa on the mainland, where she falls in love with an injured Italian army veteran and nine months later gives birth to a son. Attributing the pregnancy to her spa treatment, she returns to her husband and never reveals the affair. Decades later, she returns to the mainland and travels to her former lover’s hometown of Milan. Dressed in her finest coat and shoes, she wanders the streets in search of the elusive veteran. A bittersweet story of love and loss and a moving tribute to the power of storytelling, From the Land of the Moon is the powerful English debut of one of Italy’s most important new literary talents.
