Alice Allevi, giovane specializzanda in medicina legale, ha ormai imparato a resistere a tutto. O quasi a tutto. Da brava allieva, resiste alle pressioni dei superiori, che le hanno affidato la supervisione di una specializzanda... proprio a lei, che fatica a supervisionare se stessa! E lo dimostra anche la sua tortuosa vita sentimentale. Alice, infatti, soffre ancora della sindrome da cuore in sospeso che la tiene in bilico tra due uomini tanto affascinanti quanto agli opposti: Arthur, diventato l’Innominabile dopo troppe sofferenze, e Claudio, il medico legale più rampante dell’istituto, bello e incorreggibile, autentico diavolo tentatore. E infine, Alice resiste, o ci prova, all’istinto di lanciarsi in fantasiose teorie investigative ogni volta che, in segreto, collabora alle indagini del commissario Calligaris. Il quale invece dimostra di nutrire in lei più fiducia di quanta ne abbia Alice stessa. Ma è difficile far fronte a tutto questo insieme quando, nell’estate più rovente da quando vive a Roma, Alice incappa in un caso che minaccia di coinvolgerla fin troppo. Il ritrovamento dello scheletro di un giovane attore teatrale, che si credeva fosse scomparso anni prima e che invece è stato ucciso, è solo il primo atto di un’indagine intricata e complessa. Alice dovrà fare così i conti con una galleria di personaggi che, all’apparenza limpidi e sinceri, dietro le quinte nascondono segreti inconfessabili. Alice lo sa: nessun segreto è per sempre. E chi non impara a tenere a bada i propri segreti finisce col lasciarsene dominare... fino al più tragico e crudele dei finali.

The Unnamable - so named because he knows not who he may be - is from a nameless place. He speaks of previous selves ('all these Murphys, Molloys, and Malones...') as diversions from the need to stop speaking altogether. But, as with the other novels in the trilogy, the prose is full of marvellous precisions, full of its own reasons for keeping going. ...perhaps the words have carried me to the threshold of my story, before the door that opens on my story, that would surprise me, if it opens, it will be I, will be the silence, where I am, I don't know, I'll never know, in the silence you don't know, you must go on, I can't go on, I'll go on.

Italo Calvino imagines a novel capable of endless mutations in this intricately crafted story about writing and readers. If on a Winter's Night a Traveler turns out to be not one novel but ten, each with a different plot, style, ambience, and author, and each interrupted at a moment of suspense. Together they form a labyrinth of literatures, known and unknown, alive and extinct, through which two readers, a male and a female, pursue both the story lines that intrigue them and one another.

Harper Lee's Pulitzer prize-winning masterwork of honor and injustice in the deep south—and the heroism of one man in the face of blind and violent hatred, available now for the first time as an e-book. One of the best-loved stories of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird has been translated into more than forty languages, sold more than thirty million copies worldwide, served as the basis for an enormously popular motion picture, and was voted one of the best novels of the twentieth century by librarians across the country. A gripping, heart-wrenching, and wholly remarkable tale of coming-of-age in a South poisoned by virulent prejudice, it views a world of great beauty and savage inequities through the eyes of a young girl, as her father-a crusading local lawyer-risks everything to defend a black man unjustly accused of a terrible crime.

A Season in Hell is an extended poem written and published in 1873 by French writer Arthur Rimbaud. The book had a considerable influence on later artists and poets, for example the Surrealists. Henry Miller was important in introducing Rimbaud to America in the sixties. He once attempted an English translation of the book and wrote an extended essay on Rimbaud and A Season in Hell titled The Time of the Assassins. The poem is loosely divided into nine parts, some of which are much shorter than others. They differ markedly in tone and narrative comprehensibility, with some, such as "Bad Blood," 'being much more obviously influenced by Rimbaud's drug use than others, some argue. Academic critics have arrived at many varied and often entirely incompatible conclusions as to what meaning and philosophy may or may not be contained in the text, and will continue to do so.
