Una storia dove testo e vignette si intrecciano per raccontare una favola per adulti. Le protagoniste sono due bambine, Martina e Livia, intraprendenti e determinate, ben decise ad aprire gli occhi sul lato oscuro della vita, ovvero sulle violenze e sugli abusi che si consumano ai danni delle bambine. Cosa accade se il padre (o il nonno, lo zio, il cugino, l'idraulico) è un "mostro"? Come tracciare l'identikit del "nemico"? Come tornare alla vita normale? E poi, quale vita normale? Queste e altre sono le domande inquietanti che si pongono e a cui le due danno risposte ancora più inquietanti. Come fare a ridere quando si parla di stupro, incesto, abusi sulle bambine? Smascherando i trucchi dello stupratore, per non giocare mai più il gioco della vittima. (Alice)

The robber bride by Margaret Atwood( Book )
5 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in Italian and held by 5 libraries worldwide
From the extraordinary imagination of Margaret Atwood, author of the bestselling The Handmaid's Tale and Cat's Eye, comes her most intricate and subversive novel yet. Roz, Charis, and Tony - war babies all - share a wound, and her name is Zenia. Zenia is beautiful and smart and hungry, by turns manipulative and vulnerable, needy and ruthless, the turbulent center of her own never-ending saga. Zenia entered their lives when they were in college, in the sixties; and over the three decades since, she damaged each of them badly, ensnaring their sympathy, betraying their trust, and treating their men as loot. Then Zenia died, or at any rate the three women - with much relief - attended her funeral. But as The Robber Bride begins, she's suddenly alive again, sauntering into the restaurant where they are innocently eating lunch

1 edition published in 1994 in Italian and held by 2 libraries worldwide
The annotated Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë( Book )
2 editions published in 2014 in Italian and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Overview: Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights has been called the most beautiful, most profoundly violent love story of all time. At its center are Catherine and Heathcliff, and the self-contained world of Wuthering Heights, Thrushcross Grange, and the wild Yorkshire moors that the characters inhabit. "I am Heathcliff," Catherine declares. In her introduction Janet Gezari examines Catherine's assertion and in her notes maps it to questions that flicker like stars in the novel's dark dreamscape. How do we determine who and what we are? What do the people closest to us contribute to our sense of identity? The Annotated Wuthering Heights provides those encountering the novel for the first timeƠ-as well as those returning to it-with a wide array of contexts in which to read Bronte's romantic masterpiece. Gezari explores the philosophical, historical, economic, political, and religious contexts of the novel and its connections with Bronte's other writing, particularly her poems. The annotations unpack Bronte's allusions to the Bible, Shakespeare, and her other reading; elucidate her references to topics including folklore, educational theory, and slavery; translate the thick Yorkshire dialect of Joseph, the surly, bigoted manservant at the Heights; and help with other difficult or unfamiliar words and phrases. Handsomely illustrated with many color images that vividly recreate both Bronte's world and the earlier Yorkshire setting of her novel, this newly edited and annotated text will delight and instruct the scholar and general reader alike

Behind the scenes at the museum by Kate Atkinson( Book )
1 edition published in 1997 in Italian and held by 1 library worldwide
In her profoundly moving, uniquely comic debut, Kate Atkinson introduces readers to the mind and world of Ruby Lennox, born above a pet shop in York at the halfway point of the twentieth century, and determined to understand both the family that precedes her and the life that awaits her. Taking her own conception as her starting point, the irrepressible Ruby narrates a story of four generations of women, from her great-grandmother's affair with a French photographer, to her mother's unfulfilled dreams of Hollywood glamour, to her young sister's efforts to upstage the Queen on Coronation Day. Hurtling in and out of both World Wars, economic downfalls, the onset of the permissive '60s, and up to the present day, Ruby paints a rich and vivid portrait of family heartbreak and happiness
Bouvard and Pécuchet by Gustave Flaubert( Book )
1 edition published in 1999 in Italian and held by 1 library worldwide
"Considered Gustave Flaubert's masterpiece, Bouvard and Pecuchet opens with two middle-aged copy-clerks who become fast friends after meeting on a city bench and discovering their shared habit of writing their names in their hats: "I should say so! Someone could walk off with mine at the office!" When a small inheritance allows Bouvard and Pecuchet to retire early and move to the country, they use their newfound leisure time to satisfy their curiosity about all the things they'd been too busy to study in the city. Flaubert shows his unlikely protagonists diving disastrously into everything from farming and politics to literature and love, and coming up empty-handed each time - until, finally, their obsessive pursuit of knowledge becomes an end in itself." Bouvard and Pecuchet unravels the novel's realist tradition, and sets the stage for the modernist innovations of Kafka, Joyce, and Beckett. Although Flaubert died before completing it, this new translation contains the fullest and most accurate version of the text, as well as his "Dictionary of Accepted Ideas" and the previously untranslated "Catalogue of Fashionable Ideas."--Publisher
