Malvaldi, Marco

The measure of a man / Marco Malvaldi ; translated from the italian by Howard Curtis and Katherine Gregor

New York : Europa editions, copyr. 2019

Résumé: October 1493. Florence is still mourning the death of Lorenzo the Magnificent. Columbus’ ships have only recently reached the New World. The modern financial system has just come into being thanks to the adoption of the letter of credit. Meanwhile, Milan is experiencing a renaissance under the leadership of Ludovico il Moro. In those years, people wandering the environs of Milan’s Castle or along the Navigli canals often encounter a strange man in his forties, dressed in long pink robes, his expression calm, like someone lost in his own thoughts. The man lives above his workshop with his mother and a mischievous little boy whom he dotes on; he doesn’t eat meat, writes from right to left, and struggles to get paid by his employers. His name is Leonardo da Vinci. His fame extends beyond the Alps, to the French court of Charles VIII, whose envoys have been tasked with a secret mission that concerns Leonardo himself. It is rumored that the Italian inventor keeps his most daring designs—including perhaps the project for an invincible mechanical knight—in a notebook hidden under his robes, close to the heart. When a man is found dead in the Castle’s courtyard, il Moro turns to Da Vinci for help. Five hundred years after Leonardo’s death, Marco Malvaldi combines literature, science, history, and mystery to bring back to life one of the greatest figures of the Renaissance.

Ferrante, Elena

Incidental inventions / Elena Ferrante ; translated from the Italian by Ann Goldstein ; illustrations by Andrea Ucini

New York : Europa editions, 2019

Résumé: With these words, Elena Ferrante, the bestselling author of My Brilliant Friend, bid farewell to her year-long collaboration with the Guardian. For a full year she penned short pieces, the subjects of which had been suggested by Guardian editors, making the writing process a sort of prolonged interlocution. The subjects ranged from first love to climate change, from enmity among women to the adaptation of her novels to film and TV. As she said in her final column: “I have written as an author of novels, taking on matters that are important to me and that—if I have the will and the time—I’d like to develop within real narrative mechanisms.”

Now we shall be entirely free / Andrew Miller

New York : Europa editions, 2019

Résumé: When Captain John Lacroix returns home from Spain, wounded, unconscious, and alone, he believes that he has seen the worst of what men may do. It is 1809, and in England’s wars against Napoleon, the Battle of Corruna stands out as a humiliation: a once-proud army forced to retreat, civilized men reduced to senseless acts of cruelty. Slowly regaining his health, Lacroix journeys north to the misty isles of Scotland with the intent of forgetting the horrors of the war. Unbeknownst to him, however, something else has followed him back from the war―something far more dangerous than a memory…
