Zen and the art of motorcycle maintenance: an inquiry into values by Robert M Pirsig( Book )
5 editions published between 1988 and 1999 in Italian and held by 5 libraries worldwide
Acclaimed as one of the most exciting books in the history of American letters, this modern epic became an instant bestseller upon publication in 1974, transforming a generation and continuing to inspire millions. This 25th Anniversary Edition features a new introduction by the author, in which he reveals his original intention about the book's controversial ending, as well as important typographical changes reflecting his ideas. A narration of a summer motorcycle trip undertaken by a father and his son, the book becomes a personal and philosophical odyssey into fundamental questions of how to live. The narrator's relationship with his son leads to a powerful self-reckoning, the craft of motorcycle maintenance leads to an austerely beautiful process for reconciling science, religion, and humanism. Resonant with the confusions of existence, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance is a touching and transcendent book of life.--From publisher description

Questo buio feroce : storia della mia morte by Harold Brodkey( Book )
2 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in Italian and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Un uomo, uno scrittore, scopre nel 1993, con sorpresa (le sue sporadiche avventure omosessuali risalivano agli anni Sessanta e Settanta, e non era più a rischio dal 1977), di avere l'Aids e di essere condannato a morte. Quest'uomo è Harold Brodkey, uno dei più eccelsi prosatori contemporanei, e la <<storia...della sua morte>> diventa non tanto un diario di fatti (i progressi della malattia, il decadimento fisico), ma il resoconto di due anni di continuo stato di grazia creativo, due anni di straordinaria lucidità, due anni di <<vita vera>> concessi proprio dall'imminenza della fine. Il risultato è un'opera asciutta e minutamente cesellata, un libro estremo, un classico contemporaneo capace di toccare le profondità abissali di un racconto come La morte di Ivan ll'ic di Tolstoj. È l'indimenticabile testimonianza di un uomo che affronta la morte a occhi aperti e riflette sul toccante rapporto che lo lega alla moglie amatissima, su un'ultima vacanza a Venezia, sulle circostanze della vita quotidiana; ma soprattutto si serve dell'esperienza del morire per raggiungere con la sua scrittura la sincerità assoluta, la chiarezza definitiva, perfino - ed è l'ultimo paradosso - un'assurda felicità.

With her disarming, intimate, completely accessible voice, and dry sense of humor, Nora Ephron shares with us her ups and downs in I Feel Bad About My Neck, a candid, hilarious look at women who are getting older and dealing with the tribulations of maintenance, menopause, empty nests, and life itself. Ephron chronicles her life as an obsessed cook, passionate city dweller, and hapless parent. But mostly she speaks frankly and uproariously about life as a woman of a certain age. Utterly courageous, uproariously funny, and unexpectedly moving in its truth telling, I Feel Bad About My Neck is a scrumptious, irresistible treat of a book, full of truths, laugh out loud moments that will appeal to readers of all ages.
