The barbarians : an essay on the mutation of culture by Alessandro Baricco( Book )

27 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From one of Italy's most respected literary voices, a manifesto on the state of global culture and how connectivity is changing the way we experience it. For the gatekeepers of traditional high culture, the rise of young ambitious outsiders has indeed seemed like nothing short of a barbarian invasion. In this concise and powerful manifesto, Alessandro Baricco explores a handful of realms that have been "plundered"--Wine, soccer, music, and books-and extrapolates that it is not a case of old values against new but a widespread mutation that we are all part of, leading toward a different way of having experiences and creating meaning

The surprising, beautiful, and even frightening results are received with rapture by their subjects--among them Gwyn's devoted assistant, Rebecca; a beautiful fabric importer; a landscape painter; Gwyn's own literary agent; two wealthy newlyweds; a tailor to the Queen; and a very dangerous nineteen-year-old."--Page 4 of cover
Tre volte all'alba by Alessandro Baricco( Book )

22 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Si tratta di tre racconti, indipendenti tra loro ma legati da un unico filo conduttore. Le tre storie si sfiorano tra loro in maniera quasi impercettibile, eppure dal flebile punto di contatto nasce un legame profondo, come avviene per i protagonisti della singola vicenda. Il vissuto della narrazione si svolge sempre all'alba e i protagonisti sono due sconosciuti, che in seguito ad un incontro fortuito si raccontano e si rivelano, instaurando tra di loro un legame umano in grado di svelare all'altro il loro io più profondo in pochi attimi, con poche parole. Tutti i personaggi presenti nel romanzo hanno lasciato qualcosa di importante nel loro passato e hanno dovuto ricominciare. Alessandro Baricco esplora la vita e le relazioni umane attraverso le storie degli uomini e delle donne che popolano Tre volte all'alba"--Publisher

Lemon, geboren von armen Auswanderern auf dem Luxusliner Virginian (baugleich mit der Titanic) wird im Jahre 1900 in einer Zitronenkiste auf dem Piano der Luxusklasse ausgesetzt. Er wird sein ganzes Leben auf den Ozean verbringen, ohne ein einziges Mal Land zu betreten. Die Welt kommt zu ihm aufs Schiff, denn Novecento besitzt die Gabe, die Musik des Lebens, die die Menschen mitbringen, zu hören und das Leben, die Liebe, das Unglück in seinem genialen Pianospiel zu verzaubern.
