Overview: Now a major motion picture. To five-year-old-Jack, Room is the world. It's where he was born, it's where he and his Ma eat and sleep and play and learn. At night, his Ma shuts him safely in the wardrobe, where he is meant to be asleep when Old Nick visits. Room is home to Jack, but to Ma it's the prison where she has been held for seven years. Through her fierce love for her son, she has created a life for him in this eleven-by-eleven-foot space. But with Jack's curiosity building alongside her own desperation, she knows that Room cannot contain either much longer. Room is a tale at once shocking, riveting, exhilarating-a story of unconquerable love in harrowing circumstances, and of the diamond-hard bond between a mother and her child

Escapade by Evelyn Scott( Book )
1 edition published in 1988 in Italian and held by 1 library worldwide
While offering a chronicle of the runaways' Brazilian interlude, Escapade is a tale both literary and autobiographical, filled with striking imagery and written in a style that is audacious and extraordinary modern. Indeed, in many ways the book anticipates Scott's 1929 modernist masterpiece The Wave, widely considered to be one of the greatest Civil War novels ever written. Though present-day readers are unlikely to be shocked by the adulterous liaison depicted here, they will find much of interest - and much to admire - in this spare but beautiful account of one woman's daring rejection of the mores of her time

1 edition published in 1990 in Italian and held by 1 library worldwide
Blood kin by Ceridwen Dovey( Book )
1 edition published in 2009 in Italian and held by 1 library worldwide
Rarely does a debut novel attract the sweeping critical acclaim of Ceridwen Dovey's Blood Kin. Shortlisted for two prestigious awards, this tale centers around a military coup in an unnamed country, with characters who have no names or any identifying physical characteristics. Known simply as the ex-President's chef, barber, and portrait painter, these three men perform their mundane tasks and appear unaware of the atrocities of their employer's regime. But when the President is deposed, the trio are revealed as less than innocent. A deeply chilling yet sensual novel, Blood Kin illustrates Lord Acton's famous quip, "Absolute power corrupts absolutely," and marks the beginning of an illustrious literary career

When Eddie's younger sister mysteriously disappears, Eddie and the woman he loves, Aurelia Treene, are pulled into what becomes a twenty-year search for the truth. As Eddie and Aurelia uncover layer upon layer of intrigue, their odyssey takes them from the wealthy drawing rooms of New York through the shady corners of radical politics, all the way to the Oval Office

Lo spazio del tempo : una riscrittura del Racconto d'inverno by Jeanette Winterson( Book )
1 edition published in 2015 in Italian and held by 1 library worldwide
A quattrocento anni dalla morte di William Shakespeare una grande impresa letteraria: celebri autori contemporanei riscrivono le maggiori opere del grande drammaturgo. Un progetto internazionale di cui Rizzoli è in esclusiva l'editore italiano. Luogo dell'azione: Nuova Boemia, sud degli Stati Uniti. In una notte di pioggia battente e superluna, un pianista nero di nome Shep è testimone dell'assassinio di un anziano messicano; pochi minuti dopo, abbandonata nella ruota per bambini di un ospedale, trova una neonata bianca e, accanto a lei, una ventiquattrore. L'uomo solleva la bambina, "leggera come una stella", e decide di tenerla con sé. Luogo dell'azione: oltreoceano, Londra. Leo Kaiser è un disinvolto uomo d'affari che con i soldi ci sa fare, molto meno con i sentimenti. Se, come crede, la sua amata moglie lo tradisce con il suo migliore amico, cosa diavolo dovrebbe farsene della bambina che lei ha appena dato alla luce? Diciassette anni dopo, questa bambina di nome Perdita chiederà conto del proprio passato, "ci vuole così poco tempo per cambiare una vita e ci vuole tutta una vita per comprendere il cambiamento". La cover version di Jeanette Winterson del Racconto d'inverno di William Shakespeare è una brillante prova d'autore. Vibra dell'eco dell'opera originale, abilmente sospesa fra tragedia e commedia, ma è una storia tutta contemporanea di amicizia, paranoia e redenzione, che si muove fra parcheggi sotterranei, videogiochi di ultima generazione, musei dell'automobile, angeli caduti. Sulla scena si fronteggiano, nell'ampio spazio del tempo, la gelosia devastante di un marito e l'amore duraturo di una figlia. E come già nell'originale shakespeariano è proprio il tempo il protagonista del romanzo, la sua natura ellittica ed elastica; il tempo capace, a sipario ancora alzato, di ridare un posto a qualcosa che si credeva perduto
