Abstract: Quirino De Giorgio (1907-1997) is among the few Italian architects whose careers represents the entirety of the twentieth century: from futurism through fascism to the experimentations linked to the invention of reinforced concrete. Too often remembered exclusively for his early futurist and fascist works, De Giorgio is an architect whose production continued, until his last years, to develop in the experimental and dynamic way which had characterised its beginnings. Quirino De Giorgio: An Architect's Legacy, the first English-language book dedicated to the Italian architect, is a constellation of his surviving buildings shown through the eyes of photographer Enrico Rizzato. In Rizzato's pictures, each one of the ninety surviving works will showcase the universality of De Giorgio's projects and the transformations that time has stamped on his creations, taking the reader on a voyage across the different facets of Italian architecture. Accompanying site plans, floorplans and sections provide deeper insight into De Giorgio's spatial, structural, urban, and landscaping inventions. An opening essay will introduce the reader to the still relatively unknown method and life of this highly original yet still too little known architect. The book also includes a full list of De Giorgio's works that has been reconstructed here for the first time through extensive archival work.

Abstract: Il portiere dell'Atlantic Hotel è molto orgoglioso della posizione raggiunta, del suo lavoro e della sua uniforme, che considera simbolo di prestigio. Quando per la sua età viene degradato dal suo ruolo fino a quello di sorvegliante delle toilette, il pover'uomo cerca in mascherare in ogni modo alla sua famiglia e alla società l'umiliazione subita. La tragedia di un uomo che affonda mentre il bel mondo lo usa come uno zerbino serve a mostrare come la crudeltà della società che allontana da sé, quasi vergognandosene, chi non può più reggere il ritmo dei giovani e belli

Wave goodbye to your friends and relationships. Welcome to the life of a first-year doctor.

And yes, it may leave a scar.

Abstract: Remo e Margherita sono giovani e smarriti, imprigionati entrambi in un corpo inospitale: lui soffre di bulimia, lei è anoressica. Almeno fino a quando non si imbattono l'uno nell'altra. E scoprono che insieme ci si può salvare. Remo ha ventiquattro anni e l'ultimo trascorso è stato terribile. L'ha passato chiuso in casa, a mangiare senza sosta, ingrassando fino a superare i cento chili. Stanca della sua indolenza da fallito, la fidanzata l'ha pure lasciato. Una sera, in un bar che frequenta con dei vecchi amici, Remo conosce Margherita. Lei fa l'ultimo anno di liceo e di sera lavora nel ristorante di famiglia fino a tardi. È appassionata, curiosa, un po' irascibile. Ed è bella, anche se pesa meno di quarantacinque chili. Quella sera cominciano a parlare e da allora non smettono piú. Passeggiano sulla spiaggia d'inverno, inseguono la luce abbagliante della riviera ligure, si aprono l'un l'altra. Pian piano si innamorano, senza mai dirselo, forse senza neppure rendersene conto. La notte di Capodanno salgono sulla bilancia per la prima volta. Lui pesa settanta, lei cinquanta. Che sia l'inizio o la fine della storia, non importa a nessuno dei due.

Abstract: A profoundly moving novel about two neighboring families in a suburban town, the friendship between their children, a tragedy that reverberates over four decades, the daily intimacies of marriage, and the power of forgiveness. Francis Gleeson and Brian Stanhope, rookie cops in the NYPD, live next door to each other outside the city. What happens behind closed doors in both houses—the loneliness of Francis’s wife, Lena, and the instability of Brian’s wife, Anne, sets the stage for the explosive events to come. Ask Again, Yes is a deeply affecting exploration of the lifelong friendship and love that blossoms between Kate Gleeson and Peter Stanhope, born six months apart. One shocking night their loyalties are divided, and their bond will be tested again and again over the next 40 years. Luminous, heartbreaking, and redemptive, Ask Again, Yes reveals the way childhood memories change when viewed from the distance of adulthood—villains lose their menace and those who appeared innocent seem less so. Kate and Peter’s love story, while haunted by echoes from the past, is marked by tenderness, generosity, and grace

Abstract: How far will you go to protect your family? Will you keep their secrets? Ignore their lies? In a small town in Virginia, a group of people know each other because they’re part of a special treatment center, a hyperbaric chamber that may cure a range of conditions from infertility to autism. But then the chamber explodes, two people die, and it’s clear the explosion wasn’t an accident. A powerful showdown unfolds as the story moves across characters who are all maybe keeping secrets, hiding betrayals. Chapter by chapter, we shift alliances and gather evidence: Was it the careless mother of a patient? Was it the owners, hoping to cash in on a big insurance payment and send their daughter to college? Could it have been a protester, trying to prove the treatment isn’t safe? “A stunning debut about parents, children and the unwavering hope of a better life, even when all hope seems lost" (Washington Post), Miracle Creek uncovers the worst prejudice and best intentions, tense rivalries and the challenges of parenting a child with special needs. It’s “a quick-paced murder mystery that plumbs the power and perils of community” (O Magazine) as it carefully pieces together the tense atmosphere of a courtroom drama and the complexities of life as an immigrant family. Drawing on the author’s own experiences as a Korean-American, former trial lawyer, and mother of a “miracle submarine” patient, this is a novel steeped in suspense and igniting discussion. Recommended by Erin Morgenstern, Jean Kwok, Jennifer Weiner, Scott Turow, Laura Lippman, and more-- Miracle Creek is a brave, moving debut from an unforgettable new voice

Abstract: In a sleepy seaside town in Maine, recently widowed Eveleth “Evvie” Drake rarely leaves her large, painfully empty house nearly a year after her husband’s death in a car crash. Everyone in town, even her best friend, Andy, thinks grief keeps her locked inside, and Evvie doesn’t correct them.Meanwhile, in New York City, Dean Tenney, former Major League pitcher and Andy’s childhood best friend, is wrestling with what miserable athletes living out their worst nightmares call the “yips”: he can’t throw straight anymore, and, even worse, he can’t figure out why. As the media storm heats up, an invitation from Andy to stay in Maine seems like the perfect chance to hit the reset button on Dean’s future.When he moves into an apartment at the back of Evvie’s house, the two make a deal: Dean won’t ask about Evvie’s late husband, and Evvie won’t ask about Dean’s baseball career. Rules, though, have a funny way of being broken—and what starts as an unexpected friendship soon turns into something more. To move forward, Evvie and Dean will have to reckon with their pasts—the friendships they’ve damaged, the secrets they’ve kept—but in life, as in baseball, there’s always a chance—up until the last out. A joyful, hilarious, and hope-filled debut, Evvie Drake Starts Over will have you cheering for the two most unlikely comebacks of the year—and will leave you wanting more from Linda Holmes
New York : Riverhead Books, 2019
Abstract: "Life is both fleeting and dangerous, and there is no point in denying yourself pleasure, or being anything other than what you are." Beloved author Elizabeth Gilbert returns to fiction with a unique love story set in the New York City theater world during the 1940s. Told from the perspective of an older woman as she looks back on her youth with both pleasure and regret (but mostly pleasure), City of Girls explores themes of female sexuality and promiscuity, as well as the idiosyncrasies of true love. In 1940, nineteen-year-old Vivian Morris has just been kicked out of Vassar College, owing to her lackluster freshman-year performance. Her affluent parents send her to Manhattan to live with her Aunt Peg, who owns a flamboyant, crumbling midtown theater called the Lily Playhouse. There Vivian is introduced to an entire cosmos of unconventional and charismatic characters, from the fun-chasing showgirls to a sexy male actor, a grand-dame actress, a lady-killer writer, and no-nonsense stage manager. But when Vivian makes a personal mistake that results in professional scandal, it turns her new world upside down in ways that it will take her years to fully understand. Ultimately, though, it leads her to a new understanding of the kind of life she craves - and the kind of freedom it takes to pursue it. It will also lead to the love of her life, a love that stands out from all the rest. Now eighty-nine years old and telling her story at last, Vivian recalls how the events of those years altered the course of her life - and the gusto and autonomy with which she approached it. "At some point in a woman's life, she just gets tired of being ashamed all the time," she muses. "After that, she is free to become whoever she truly is." Written with a powerful wisdom about human desire and connection, City of Girls is a love story like no other

Abstract: Fixie Farr has always lived by her father’s motto: “Family first.” And since her dad passed away, leaving his charming housewares store in the hands of his wife and children, Fixie spends all her time picking up the slack from her siblings instead of striking out on her own. The way Fixie sees it, if she doesn’t take care of her father’s legacy, who will? It’s simply not in Fixie’s nature to say no to people. So when a handsome stranger in a coffee shop asks her to watch his laptop for a moment, she not only agrees—she ends up saving it from certain disaster. To thank Fixie for her quick thinking, the computer’s owner, Sebastian, an investment manager, scribbles an IOU on a coffee sleeve and attaches his business card. Fixie laughs it off—she’d never actually claim an IOU from a stranger. Would she? But then Fixie’s childhood crush, Ryan, comes back into her life, and his lack of a profession pushes all of Fixie’s buttons. As always, she wants nothing for herself—but she’d love Seb to give Ryan a job. No sooner has Seb agreed than the tables are turned once more and a new series of IOUs between Seb and Fixie—from small favors to life-changing moments—ensues. Soon Fixie, Ms. Fixit for everyone else, is torn between her family and the life she really wants. Does she have the courage to take a stand? Will she finally grab the life, and love, she really wants?

Abstract: "It was a beautiful, breezy, yellow-and-green afternoon. . . . " This is how Abby Whitshank always describes the day she fell in love with Red in July 1959. The Whitshanks are one of those families that radiate an indefinable kind of specialness, but like all families, their stories reveal only part of the picture: Abby and Red and their four grown children have accumulated not only tender moments, laughter, and celebrations, but also jealousies, disappointments, and carefully guarded secrets. From Red's parents, newly arrived in Baltimore in the 1920s, to the grandchildren carrying the Whitshank legacy boisterously into the twenty-first century, here are four generations of lives unfolding in and around the sprawling, lovingly worn house that has always been their anchor

Abstract: Presentato in anteprima internazionale al Toronto Film Festival, "Boom for real" è uno sguardo sul teenager Jean-Michel Basquiat prima che diventasse celebre e famoso. È una riflessione su come l'ambiente (la New York violenta che va dal '78 all'81), la scena artistica, le sue frequentazioni, i movimenti culturali abbiano plasmato l'artista che poi è diventato. Jean-Michel Basquiat è l'icona che meglio rappresenta questo periodo. Il fermento che animava la città passava attraverso di lui: politica, hip-hop, punk rock, così come i movimenti per i diritti civili e le questioni razziali.

Abstract: Erano gli anni Ottanta quando mi fu diagnosticato il disturbo da deficit di attenzione e iperattività. Per anni ho provato innumerevoli sistemi per organizzare il tempo, online e offline, ma nessuno di questi si adattava al funzionamento della mia mente. Spinto quindi dalla necessità, ho ideato un metodo chiamato Bullet Journal per essere sempre concentrato ed efficiente, ma soprattutto meno stressato. Non appena ho iniziato a condividere il metodo con chi si trovava nella stessa situazione, con mia grande sorpresa, il Bullet Journal è diventato virale. E oggi, solo qualche anno dopo, è un movimento globale. Il Bullet Journal è molto più che un metodo per organizzare i tuoi appunti e preparare liste di cose da fare. Riguarda quello che io chiamo "vivere consapevolmente": liberarsi dalle distrazioni e utilizzare il tempo e le energie nel perseguire ciò che ha davvero importanza, nel lavoro e nella tua vita privata. È un formidabile aiuto per imparare a passare più tempo a fare quello che ami, riducendo drasticamente il numero delle cose di cui occuparti.Ho scritto questo libro per i creatori di liste frustrati, i multitasker sconfitti, i creativi che hanno bisogno di un po' di organizzazione. Sia che tu abbia usato un Bullet Journal per anni o che non ne abbia mai visto uno, Il metodo Bullet Journal ti aiuterà a passare da comparsa a protagonista della tua stessa vita. Ryder Carroll
