Questa è la storia di Samuel Ben Nissim Abul Farag, di Guglielmo Raimondo Moncada, di Flavio Mitridate. Non si tratta di tre persone ma di un solo individuo. Racconta Camilleri di essersi imbattuto in questa storia leggendo casualmente, nell’estate del 1980, la presentazione di Leonardo Sciascia al catalogo di una mostra di un suo amico pittore. Di essersi incuriosito della curiosità di Sciascia, preso anche lui dal desiderio di sapere, di capire, di inseguire quell’ombra. Non si attarda in ricerche d’archivio che altri prima di lui hanno fatto, affrontando il personaggio con le armi della narrazione. Pur affollato di tante figure realmente esistite, Inseguendo un’ombra non è un romanzo storico, ma di invenzione. E del resto, ricorda Camilleri, «invenzione non viene da invenire che in latino significa riscoprire, ritrovare?».

The Shape of Water is the first in Andrea Camilleri's wry, brilliantly compelling Sicilian crime series, featuring Inspector Montalbano. This edition with a stunning redesigned cover.The goats of Vig�ta once grazed on the trash-strewn site still known as the Pasture. Now local enterprise of a different sort flourishes: drug dealers and prostitutes of every flavour. But their discreet trade is upset when two employees of the Splendour Refuse Collection Company discover the body of engineer Silvio Luparello, one of the local movers and shakers, apparently deceased in flagrante at the Pasture. The coroner's verdict is death from natural causes - refreshingly unusual for Sicily. But Inspector Salvo Montalbano, as honest as he is streetwise and as scathing to fools and villains as he is compassionate to their victims, is not ready to close the case - even though he's being pressured by Vig�ta's police chief, judge, and bishop. Picking his way through a labyrinth of high-comedy corruption, delicious meals, vendetta firepower, and carefully planted false clues, Montalbano can be relied on, whatever the cost, to get to the heart of the matter.The Shape of Water is followed by the second in this phenomenal series, The Terracotta Dog.

A clever, engaging third novel in the Rocco Schiavone mystery series from bestselling Italian author, Antonio Manzini, following the dashing deputy police chief who confronts his most riveting case ever. It’s the bitterly cold spring season in alpine Aosta, and a girl has been kidnapped. Chiara Berguet, daughter of the owners of a local construction firm, was targeted thanks to the sizeable debt her parents owe. But like many a best-laid plan, a blown tire causes the crime to go haywire as the kidnappers’ van skids off the road and crashes into a pair of larch trees. Both the driver and his accomplice die on impact, leaving the girl in the back, gagged and bound and unable to break herself free. Meanwhile Rocco Schiavone wakes to find himself in Anna’s apartment. She’s the best friend of his girlfriend Nora, and memories of the night before, a heated evening with Anna, return to him. As he sneaks out, he sees the first few snowstorm clouds of the spring season move across the sky, an ominous reference that something is off. If trouble at home and a case of kidnapping weren’t enough, Rocco will eventually have to contend with Enzo Baiocchi. Rocco was the one who sent Enzo to prison, and in the process killed Enzo’s brother. Having just escaped from prison, Enzo is heading north with a newly purchased revolver and, clearly, revenge on his mind. And when an unfortunate incident of mistaken identity makes Enzo’s act of revenge even more fiendish, it also presents a gruesome scene for Rocco to discover on his return home.

In this mystery novella featuring Inspector Montalbano, a deadly accident at a building site prompts a search with shocking revelations Yesterday morning around seven thirty, an Albanian construction worker, age thirty-eight, Pashko Puka, a legal resident with a work permit, hired by the Santa Maria construction company owned by Alfredo Corso, fell from a scaffold that had been erected during the construction of an apartment building in Tonnarello, between Vigata and Montelusa. His coworkers, who immediately rushed to his aid, unfortunately discovered he had died. There have been six events euphemistically called “tragedies in the workplace” in the past month. Six deaths caused by an inexplicable disregard for safety regulations. When the local magistrate opens an investigation, Inspector Montalbano is on the case. But Montalbano soon discovers that these seemingly unrelated incidents are only part of a larger network of crimes. This intricate work is a testament to Andrea Camilleri’s talent for building engaging plots that continue to charm readers by the thousands.

Winner of the 2001 Raiziss / de Palchi Prize. This is a collection of masterpieces, useful as bread and chocolate. Bringing Saba across the Atlantic was thought by many a foolhardy voyage, much of the cargo bound to wash overboard. Thanks to the American poet Sartarelli, we now have always convincing, often inspired versions of Saba's wonderful poems in America. --Stanley Moss.

“This book not only depicts dramatically, but at the same time demonstrates by what might be termed a mathematic method, the impossibility of any human creature’s being to others what he is to himself. “If you would like to have an idea of how it is that others see you, so as no longer to have to marvel at the judgments which others pass upon your personality, learn to reflect like the hero of this novel.” LUIGI PIRANDELLO.

Témoignage de l'enseignement dispensé à la Chaire de représentation et d'expression du professeur Cantàfora à l'Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne et à l'Académie d'architecture de Mendrisio au Tessin, le livre situe le vaste domaine de la représentation graphique entre imitation de la réalité et pouvoir évocateur de l'image. Il postule la représentation comme langage et expression : représentation, expression et langage sont les trois voies confrontées dans ces pages, trois lieux où mémoire et projet se conjuguent. Illustré de nombreux travaux d'étudiants, La Pomme d'Adrien suggère une possible manière de faire, un " faire " compris entre pensée et action. Il n'est pas à proprement parlé un manuel de dessin, mais plutôt une manière de penser la représentation. A l'école primaire, Adrien devait dessiner une pomme coupée en largeur. Il transforme ce devoir en un autoportrait et nous fait comprendre, en un clin d'œil, toute la complexité de la représentation.

“You either love Andrea Camilleri or you haven’t read him yet. Each novel in this wholly addictive, entirely magical series, set in Sicily and starring a detective unlike any other in crime fiction, blasts the brain like a shot of pure oxygen. Aglow with local color, packed with flint-dry wit, as fresh and clean as Mediterranean seafood — altogether transporting. Long live Camilleri, and long live Montalbano.” A.J. Finn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in the Window Inspector Montalbano, praised as “a delightful creation” (USA Today), has been compared to the legendary detectives of Georges Simenon, Dashiell Hammett, and Raymond Chandler. As the fourth mystery in the internationally bestselling series opens, Montalbano’s gruesome discovery of a lovely, naked young woman suffocated in her bed immediately sets him on a search for her killer. Among the suspects are her aging husband, a famous doctor; a shy admirer, now disappeared; an antiques-dealing lover from Bologna; and the victim’s friend Anna, whose charms Montalbano cannot help but appreciate... But it is a mysterious, reclusive violinist who holds the key to the murder.

Written during the height of the 1970s Italian domestic terror, a cult novel, with distinct echoes of Lovecraft and Borges, makes its English-language debut. In the spare wing of a church-run sanatorium, some zealous youths create "the Library," a space where lonely citizens can read one another’s personal diaries and connect with like-minded souls in "dialogues across the ether." But when their scribblings devolve into the ugliest confessions of the macabre, the Library’s users learn too late that a malicious force has consumed their privacy and their sanity. As the city of Turin suffers a twenty-day "phenomenon of collective psychosis" culminating in nightly massacres that hundreds of witnesses cannot explain, the Library is shut down and erased from history. That is, until a lonely salaryman decides to investigate these mysterious events, which the citizenry of Turin fear to mention. Inevitably drawn into the city’s occult netherworld, he unearths the stuff of modern nightmares: what’s shared can never be unshared. An allegory inspired by the grisly neo-fascist campaigns of its day, The Twenty Days of Turin has enjoyed a fervent cult following in Italy for forty years. Now, in a fretful new age of "lone-wolf" terrorism fueled by social media, we can find uncanny resonances in Giorgio De Maria’s vision of mass fear: a mute, palpitating dread that seeps into every moment of daily existence. With its stunning anticipation of the Internet—and the apocalyptic repercussions of oversharing—this bleak, prescient story is more disturbingly pertinent than ever. Brilliantly translated into English for the first time by Ramon Glazov, The Twenty Days of Turin establishes De Maria’s place among the literary ranks of Italo Calvino and beside classic horror masters such as Edgar Allan Poe and H. P. Lovecraft. Hauntingly imaginative, with visceral prose that chills to the marrow, the novel is an eerily clairvoyant magnum opus, long overdue but ever timely.

Un bel mattino passeggiavo con mio padre, secondo il nostro costume; eravamo inseparabili; s'egli andava in un luogo senza di me, di lì a un poco mi vedeano spuntare; parea che sapessi di doverlo perdere così presto. Ero in su que' bei diciott'anni, e su que' bei colli veronesi. La strada che talora serviva di letto al torrente, serpeggiava profonda, sassosa, sdrucciola, tutta segnata sulla creta, dalle unghie fesse delle pecore, e dalle scarpe ferrate dei montanari. Due file di càrpini e di querce scapitozzate con macchie di rovi legate insieme da volubili madriselve sorgevano ombrose sull'alto delle due ripe, più a guisa di parete che di siepe, lasciando cadere dai cigli corrosi le pendole barbe delle radici nude.
