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.

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.

'Auntie Mame and I learned to love one another in as brief and painless a period as possible. That her amazing personality would attract me, just as it had seduced thousands of others, was a foregone conclusion. Her helter-skelter charm was, after all, notorious . . . ' When shy young heir Patrick is orphaned at the tender age of ten, the only family he has is his wealthy and eccentric aunt, a fabulous New York socialite named Mame. While prone to dramatic costumes, flights of fancy and expensive whims - not least her lives as a muse and a Southern belle - Auntie Mame will raise Patrick the only way she knows how: with humour, mishaps, unforgettable friends and lots and lots of love. Turned into a play, musical and two films, Auntie Mame is the most magnificent and hilarious work of love, style, wit and the life of a very modern aunt.
