Un nuovo Barnum. Una nuova visita guidata alle cose del mondo, e agli uomini che lo rendono abitabile, o semplicemente più riconoscibile. Ecco un nuovo Barnum che si aggiunge ai due pubblicati negli anni novanta. Qui facciamo i conti con la riforma dello spettacolo, con la scuola come video­game, con la priorità delle storie, con il cantiere della Morgan Library di Renzo Piano, con la Cinquecento Miglia di Indianapolis, con le immagini di Vivian Maier, con le provocazioni di Houellebecq e l’eredità di Gabriel García Márquez. Una grande occasione per farsi sedurre, sorprendere, interrogare.

Ale ha cinque anni quando in Europa si alzano i venti della Grande Guerra, e il suo papà, come molti altri giovani, parte per il fronte. La guerra però la combatte anche chi rimane a casa, nelle difficoltà di trovare il cibo e i soldi per l'affitto, con il terrore che un ufficiale bussi alla porta per riferire che un familiare non tornerà più a casa. Ale non vuole credere che sia questo il destino di suo padre, ma le lettere che l'uomo spedisce dal fronte si fanno saltuarie e cupe, e sempre più rare

The secular and the pious. The rich and the poor. Those with “a capacity for destiny” and those who “cannot afford it.” Emmaus is a world of stark contrasts, one in which four young men—all from proud, struggling families, and all lusting after Andre, a hyper- sexual woman—are goaded from adolescence to manhood in a torrent of exploits and crises, sexual awakenings and morbid depressions, naivety and fatalism. A brilliant portrait of the perils and uncertainties of youth and faith, Emmaus is a remarkable novel from one of the very best writers in Europe.

The year is 1861. Hervé Joncour is a French merchant of silkworms, who combs the known world for their gemlike eggs. Then circumstances compel him to travel farther, beyond the edge of the known, to a country legendary for the quality of its silk and its hostility to foreigners: Japan. There Joncour meets a woman. They do not touch; they do not even speak. And he cannot read the note she sends him until he has returned to his own country. But in the moment he does, Joncour is possessed.

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 author of the international bestseller Silk now delivers a ravishing and wildly inventive novel about friendship, genius and its discontents, and the redemptive power of narrative. Somewhere in America lives a brilliant boy named Gould, an intellectual guided missile aimed at the Nobel Prize. His only companions are an imaginary giant and an imaginary mute. Improbably—and yet with impeccable logic--he falls into the care of Shatzy Shell, a young woman whose life up till that point has been equally devoid of human connection . Theirs is a relationship of stories and of stories within stories: of Gould’s evolving saga of an underdog boxer and the violent Western that Shatzy has been dictating into a tape recorder since the age of six. Out of these stories, Alessandro Baricco creates a masterpiece of metaphysical pulp fiction that recalls both Scheherazade and Italo Calvino. By turns exhilarating and deeply moving, City is irresistible.
