Résumé: 'Dark, twisty and excellent . . . Grimdark with heart' Mark Lawrence For Ryhalt Galharrow, working for Crowfoot as a Blackwing captain is about as bad as it gets - especially when his orders are garbled, or incoherent, or impossible to carry out. The Deep Kings are hurling fire from the sky, a ghost in the light known only as the Bright Lady had begun to manifest in visions across the city, and the cult that worship her grasp for power while the city burns around them. Galharrow may not be able to do much about the cult - or about strange orders from the Nameless - but when Crowfoot's arcane vault is breached and an object of terrible power is stolen, he's propelled into a race against time to recover it. Only to do that, he needs answers, and finding them means travelling into nightmare: to the very heart of the Misery. RAVENCRY is the second book in the Raven's Mark series, continuing the story that began with the award winning epic fantasy BLACKWING.

Résumé: Sylvia Plath, voce tra le più potenti e limpide della letteratura americana, dopo la tragica morte divenne rapidamente e a lungo rimase un simbolo delle rivendicazioni femministe. Educata ai rigidi valori della società statunitense, nella sua breve vita la Plath riuscì a coniugare potenza espressiva e realizzazione estrema di sé, evadendo dalle sbarre imposte dalla condizione di "moglie" e trovando proprio in questo tentativo di superamento la suprema forza creativa. Nei suoi versi il tono è assoluto, ogni parola, e ciò che essa rappresenta, non potrebbe essere altrimenti: «suono e senso» scrive Seamus Heaney nel brano che introduce il volume «si alzano come una marea dalla lingua per trascinare l'espressione individuale su una corrente più forte e profonda di quanto l'individuo potesse prevedere». In tutto il percorso lirico della Plath, e fino alle perfette composizioni di Ariel, istanze psicologiche, biografiche e poetiche si fondono con un tono di libertà e perentorietà unico, un senso di urgenza e spontaneità che emerge dalla disciplina di metro, metafore, rime con la potenza di un fiat, con l'euforia di una mente che crea e supera il dolore personale, per approdare a un sentimento stupefatto, meravigliato dell'esistere.

Résumé: Al mattino fate colazione con un "biscuit" o preferite addentare un "cookie"? È corretto dire "write to me soon" o è meglio "write me soon"?

Il risultato è un'opera che, grazie a un linguaggio scorrevole e alle tante illustrazioni, racconta con ironia e competenza due mondi diversi. Un volume dedicato a due civiltà lontane fra loro ma anche incredibilmente vicine, utile per perfezionare le vostre conoscenze e il vostro inglese, sia che vi sentiate sempre un po' British, sia che preferiate le americanate.

Résumé: Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award, the #1 New York Times bestseller from Colson Whitehead, a magnificent tour de force chronicling a young slave's adventures as she makes a desperate bid for freedom in the antebellum South. Cora is a slave on a cotton plantation in Georgia. Life is hell for all the slaves, but especially bad for Cora; an outcast even among her fellow Africans, she is coming into womanhood-where even greater pain awaits. When Caesar, a recent arrival from Virginia, tells her about the Underground Railroad, they decide to take a terrifying risk and escape. Matters do not go as planned-Cora kills a young white boy who tries to capture her. Though they manage to find a station and head north, they are being hunted. In Whitehead's ingenious conception, the Underground Railroad is no mere metaphor-engineers and conductors operate a secret network of tracks and tunnels beneath the Southern soil. Cora and Caesar's first stop is South Carolina, in a city that initially seems like a haven. But the city's placid surface masks an insidious scheme designed for its black denizens. And even worse: Ridgeway, the relentless slave catcher, is close on their heels. Forced to flee again, Cora embarks on a harrowing flight, state by state, seeking true freedom. Like the protagonist of Gulliver's Travels, Cora encounters different worlds at each stage of her journey-hers is an odyssey through time as well as space. As Whitehead brilliantly re-creates the unique terrors for black people in the pre-Civil War era, his narrative seamlessly weaves the saga of America from the brutal importation of Africans to the unfulfilled promises of the present day. The Underground Railroad is at once a kinetic adventure tale of one woman's ferocious will to escape the horrors of bondage and a shattering, powerful meditation on the history we all share.

Résumé: The runaway bestseller that has swept the nation, with more than one million copies sold Between 1854 and 1929, so-called orphan trains ran regularly from the cities of the East Coast to the farmlands of the Midwest, carrying thousands of abandoned children whose fates would be determined by luck and chance. This is the story of one such child. As a young Irish immigrant, Vivian Daly was sent by rail from New York City to an uncertain future a world away. Returning east later in life, Vivian leads a quiet, peaceful existence on the coast of Maine. But in her attic, hidden in trunks, are reminders of a turbulent past. Seventeen-year-old Molly Ayer knows that a community-service position helping an elderly widow clean out her attic is the only thing keeping her out of juvenile hall. But as Molly helps Vivian sort through her keepsakes and possessions, she discovers that she and Vivian aren't as different as they appear. A Penobscot Indian who has spent her youth in and out of foster homes, Molly is also an outsider being raised by strangers, and she, too, has unanswered questions about the past. Moving between contemporary Maine and Depression-era Minnesota, Orphan Train is a powerful tale of upheaval and resilience, second chances, and unexpected friendship.

Résumé: Jonathan Kellerman's Alex Delaware returns in this ingenious and breathtakingly good psychological thriller. Not since Jack the Ripper has there been such a gruesome crime scene. One look at the victim's apartment turned charnel house is enough for Milo Sturgis to summon The Crime Reader. But even Alex Delaware's skills may be stymied when more slayings occur in the same ghastly fashion...with no apparent connection between them. The only clue left behind - a blank page bearing a question mark - seems to be both a menacing taunt and a cry for help from a killer baffled by his own lethal urges. This one will haunt The Crime Reader's waking life, and his darkest dreams, long after its end.
