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.

Now a “provocative” and “impressive” (Variety) film from director Gia Coppola (Francis Ford Coppola’s granddaughter)—starring Emma Roberts, James Franco, Nat Wolff, and Val Kilmer—the fiction debut from James Franco that Vogue called “compelling and gutsy.” James Franco’s story collection traces the lives of a group of teenagers as they experiment with vices of all kinds, struggle with their families and one another, and succumb to self-destructive, often heartless nihilism. In “Lockheed” a young woman’s summer—spent working a dull internship—is suddenly upended by a spectacular incident of violence at a house party. In “American History” a high school freshman attempts to impress a girl with a realistic portrayal of a slave owner during a classroom skit—only to have his feigned bigotry avenged. In “I Could Kill Someone,” a lonely teenager buys a gun with the aim of killing his high school tormentor, but begins to wonder about his bully’s own inner life. These “spare and riveting” (O, The Oprah Magazine) stories are a compelling portrait of lives on the rough fringes of youth. Palo Alto is, “a collection of beautifully written stories” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review) that “capture with perfect pitch the impossible exhilaration, the inevitable downbeatness, and the pure confusion of being an adolescent” (Elle). Features a bonus essay by James Franco on Gia Coppola's film adaptation.

Gray's Anatomy is probably one of the most iconic scientific books ever published: an illustrated textbook of anatomy that is still a household name 150 years since its first edition, known for its rigorously scientific text, and masterful illustrations as beautiful as they are detailed. The Making of Mr Gray's Anatomy tells the story of the creation of this remarkable book, and the individuals who made it happen: Henry Gray, the bright and ambitious physiologist, poised for medical fame and fortune, who was the book's author; Carter, the brilliant young illustrator, lacking Gray's social advantages, shy and inclined to religious introspection; and the publishers - Parkers, father and son, the father eager to employ new technology, the son part of a lively circle of intellectuals. It is the story of changing attitudes in the mid-19th century; of the social impact of science, the changing status of medicine; of poverty and class; of craftsmanship and technology. And it all unfolds in the atmospheric milieu of Victorian London - taking the reader from the smart townhouses of Belgravia, to the dissection room of St George's Hospital, and to the workhouses and mortuaries where we meet the friendless poor who would ultimately be immortalised in Carter's engravings. Alongside the story of the making of the book itself, Ruth Richardson reflects on what made Gray's Anatomy such a unique intellectual, artistic, and cultural achievement - how it represented a summation of a long half century's blossoming of anatomical knowledge and exploration, and how it appeared just at the right time to become the 'Doctor's Bible' for generations of medics to follow.

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.
