Hunt, Rebecca

Everland / Rebecca Hunt

New York : Europa, 2015

Résumé: 1913. Dinners, Millet-Bass, and Napps—three explorers bound not by friendship, but by a dependence founded on survival—volunteer to leave their ship, the Kismet, and scout an uncharted and unknown island in the Antarctic, which Napps names “Everland.” While all three are enticed by the promise of adventure and reward, they are immortalized by the disastrous outcome of the expedition, their stories preserved for posterity. 2012. Brix, Jess, and Decker—three researchers with their own reasons for being so far from home—set out on a centenary field trip to survey the same island. Their equipment is more advanced than the previous group’s, and their purpose more scientific, but the harsh weather of Everland remains an unpredictable and deadly force: the adventure and the danger are inescapable. Under the harsh ultraviolet light of a sun which doesn’t set, and isolated from the world, they begin to echo the expedition of a hundred years ago. History, it seems, has a way of repeating itself—when theirs is written, what will it say?

Greenland, Seth

I regret everything : a love story / Seth Greenland

New York : Europa, 2015

Résumé: Life is an often-confusing mixture of heartache and hilarity, or so prove Seth Greenland’s appealing characters in this tenderly comedic story of modern love. Imbued with Greenland’s signature wit, I Regret Everything confronts the oceanic uncertainty of what it means to be young and alive. Jeremy Best, a Manhattan-based trusts and estates lawyer, has a second life as the poet Jinx Bell. To his boss’s daughter, Spaulding, Jeremy, at 33, is at first, already halfway to dead. When Spaulding, an aspiring 19-year-old writer, discovers Mr. Best’s alter writerly ego, the two become bound by a devotion to poetry. Their budding relationship offers them the possibility of enduring love, or the threat of tragic loss. A skilled wordsmith with a talent for telling humor, Greenland creates fully realized characters, people that come to understand themselves as complex renderings of the human condition—at its often best, and sometimes worst. I Regret Everything explores happiness and heartache with a healthy dose of skepticism, and an understanding that the reality of love encompasses life, death, iambic pentameter, regret, trusts and estates.

Mayumi and the sea / Jennifer Tseng

New York : Europa, 2015

Résumé: Books may be Mayumi Saito’s greatest love and her one source of true pleasure. Forty-one years old, disenchanted wife and dutiful mother, Mayumi’s work as a librarian on a small island off the coast of New England feeds her passion for reading and provides her with many occasions for wry observations on human nature, but it does little to remedy the mundanity of her days. That is, until the day she issues a library card to a shy seventeen-year-old boy and swiftly succumbs to a sexual obsession that subverts the way she sees the library, her family, the island she lives on, and ultimately herself. Wary of the consequences of following through on her fantasies, Mayumi hesitates at first. But she cannot keep the young man from her thoughts. After a summer of overlong glances and nervous chitchat in the library, she finally accepts that their connection is undeniable. In a sprawling house emptied of its summer vacationers, their affair is consummated and soon consolidated thanks to an explosive charge of erotic energy. Mayumi’s life is radically enriched by the few hours each week that she shares with the young man, and as their bond grows stronger thanks not only to their physical closeness but also to their long talks about the books they both love, those hours spent apart seem to Mayumi increasingly bleak and intolerable. As her obsession worsens, in a frantic attempt to become closer to the young man, Mayumi nervously befriends another librarian patron, the young man’s mother. The two women forge a tenuous friendship that will prove vital to both in the most unexpected ways when catastrophe strikes. Exquisitely written, Mayumi and the Sea of Happiness is part wry confession, part serious meditation. At its most anxious, it’s a book about time, at its most ecstatic, it’s a deeply human story about pleasure.

Di Grado, Viola

Hollow heart / Viola Di Grado ; translated from the Italien by Anthony Shugaar

New York : Europa, 2015

Résumé: A courageous, inventive, and intelligent novel from the author of 70% Acrylic 30% Wool In this courageous, inventive, and intelligent novel, Viola di Grado tells the story of a suicide and what follows. She has given voice to an astonishing vision of life after life, portraying the awful longing and sense of loss that plague the dead, together with the solitude provoked by the impossibility of communicating. The afterlife itself is seen as a dark, seething place where one is preyed upon by the cruel and unrelenting elements. The Hollow Heart will frighten as it provokes, enlighten as it causes concern. If ever there were a novel that follows Kafka’s prescription for a book to be a axe for the frozen sea within us, it is the Hollow Heart.

Barberis, Paola - Sarnow, Annemargret

Introduzione alla fonetica del tedesco : con esercizi mirati per parlanti italiani / Paola Barberis, Annemargret Sarnow

Torino : Celid, copyr. 2015


Résumé: Il manuale si rivolge a studenti universitari di corsi linguistici, ma anche a docenti e professionisti della voce che intendono perfezionare la propria pronuncia del tedesco per avvicinarsi il più possibile alla competenza del parlante nativo. La prima parte presenta un confronto tra il sistema fonologico tedesco e quello italiano che parte da ritmo, accentazione e intonazione, per poi passare al confronto sul piano dei singoli fonemi (vocali e consonanti) e all'analisi di fenomeni fonetici specifici come la riduzione e l'assimilazione. L'attenzione costante alle più frequenti fonti di errore e una serie di esempi e attività pratiche accompagnano lo studente e gli permettono di verificare passo dopo passo il proprio progresso individuale. La seconda parte è costituita da una ricca serie di esercizi (registrati su CD) in difficoltà progressiva da eseguire collettivamente in aula attrezzata o come lavoro individuale. Questa impostazione permette di utilizzare l'eserciziario sia a un livello elementare, sia a un livello intermedio-avanzato. Ogni capitolo dell'eserciziario è dedicato a un singolo aspetto del sistema fonetico tedesco ed è strutturato in modo graduale. In appendice il lettore troverà le soluzioni degli esercizi di entrambe le parti, e un glossario con i termini specifici della fonetica.

Bouchard, Andrea

Fuochi d'artificio : il piano segreto di quattro giovanissimi partigiani : romanzo / Andrea Bouchard

Milano : Salani, 2015

Résumé: Alpi piemontesi, negli anni cruciali della Resistenza. Marta ha tredici anni, è magrolina, poco formosa e ha lunghi capelli biondi che la fanno sembrare tedesca. Un giorno suo fratello Davide, poco più grande di lei, le propone di aiutare la Resistenza contro nazisti e fascisti, all'insaputa degli stessi partigiani, che non li accetterebbero alla loro età. Davide ha un piano geniale, ma Marta si sente piccola, ha paura ed è contraria alla guerra. Il fratello però coinvolge anche Marco, un compagno di cui lei è innamorata, e quando conosce i partigiani da vicino Marta ne rimane affascinata. Così si ritroverà dentro un'avventura più grande di lei, che la esporrà a pericoli spaventosi, ma le permetterà di tirare fuori grinta, fantasia e indicibile coraggio, riuscendo infine a sconvolgere la guarnigione nazista della zona. Età di lettura: da 9 anni.
