«Fantasticheria ombrosa e triste, passione crudele e piccina, inquietudine che accelera proprio il male che più teme, sciocco orgoglio, sangue amaro, volgarità borghese, pregiudizio, odio di sé, insicurezza… Il biasimo imperversa. Il disprezzo fustiga. Lo scherno deflagra. Nessuno menerebbe vanto di essere geloso. Ma quanti di noi, in tutta la vita, possono giurare di non aver mai, ma proprio mai, sofferto di gelosia?» L'amore ci dà piacere. L'amore ci fa soffrire. Ciò che ci fa oscillare dall'esaltazione allo sconforto, dalla fiducia all'angoscia, dalla serenità alla disperazione è spesso la gelosia. Con la gelosia tutti i legami che tessono la trama delle nostre abitudini si disfanno. Tutti i gesti che formano la reciprocità quotidiana, improvvisamente restano sospesi. Che si tratti di vita comune o di amori effimeri, ci si ritrova sconvolti, spiazzati o, comunque, delusi. Le bugie incrinano la fiducia, e più si è sorpresi dell'infedeltà reale o temuta, più si soffre. Nulla è più come prima. E oltre il nulla: la vergogna. Oggi che il desiderio circola liberamente e il godimento è disinvolto, la gelosia è diventata una passione inconfessabile: bisognerebbe curarla, estirparla, ripudiarla e, soprattutto, non ammetterla mai. Giulia Sissa racconta cosa ci ha portato, nell'esperienza dell'amore, all'imbarazzo di esprimere un sentimento che, in primo luogo, è sofferenza. Nella Grecia antica, come nella Roma di Ovidio, nell'Europa di Stendhal, a Parigi e in tutto il mondo occidentale, è sempre Eros a condurre il gioco: restituita alla sua storia, la gelosia rivela la natura intensa e inquieta dell'amore, che è 'desiderio di desiderio'.

The Shadow Year
Author: Hannah Richell
Publisher: Grand Central Publishing
Still grieving the death of her prematurely delivered infant, Lila finds a welcome distraction in renovating a country house she's recently inherited. Surrounded by blueprints and plaster dust, though, she finds herself drawn into the story of a group of idealistic university grads from thirty years before, who'd thrown off the shackles of bourgeois city life to claim the cottage and rely only on each other on the land. But utopia-building can be fraught with unexpected peril, and when the fate of the group is left eerily unclear, Lila turns her attention to untangling a web of secrets to uncover the shocking truth of what happened that fateful year, in order to come to terms with her own loss and build a new future for herself. Suspenseful and moving, with a deep secret at its heart, THE SHADOW YEAR is Hannah Richell's breakout book.
An actor, recently divorced, at loose ends in New York; a woman, no less lonely, perhaps even more desperate than the man: they meet by chance in an all-night diner and are drawn to each other on the spot. Roaming the city streets, hitting its late-night dives, dropping another coin into yet another jukebox, these two lost souls struggle to understand what it is that has brought them, almost in spite of themselves, together. They are driven—from moment to moment, from bedroom to bedroom—to improvise the most unexpected of love stories, a tale of suspense where risk alone offers salvation. Georges Simenon was the most popular and prolific of the twentieth century’s great novelists. Three Bedrooms in Manhattan—closely based on the story of his own meeting with his second wife—is his most passionate and revealing work.
The author looks at sensuality and sexual desire in the Greek, Roman and early Christian worlds, demonstrating how modern concepts of sexuality emerge from the practices and theories of the ancient world. In particular, she draws a distinction between pleasure and desire, and analyses the different ways in which men and women were seen to experience erotic feeling, looking at the portrayal of transgressive women such as Medea, Clytemnestra and Jocasta. Based on the literature and philosophy of the time. Originally published as 'Eros tiranno: Sessualità e sensualità nel mondo antico' (2003).
Her Body Knows
Author: David Grossman
Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux
A fevered storyteller and a captive audience revisit the past together in each of David Grossman's new novellas, trying to make sense of a betrayal that neither one can put to rest. In "Frenzy," reserved, respectable Shaul lets his sister-in-law, Esti, into a secret nightmare, as he reveals to her his conviction that his wife is having an affair. Along with Esti, we find ourselves trapped in his paranoia and desperation as we accompany the odd pair down Israel's highways on a journey that reveals a passion perverted by jealousy and self-loathing. In the title story, a successful but embittered novelist visits her mother, who is in the last stages of cancer. Grossman investigates the powers of storytelling to harm and heal as the daughter reads aloud her own imagined, merciless account of her mother's love affair with a much younger teenage boy. Gradually it becomes clear that, for all its anger, the daughter's story and the writing process itself have led her to a new appreciation of her mother's difficult character, and her own. Studies in obssession, claustrophobia, and the need to confess, these two novellas mark a new departure from "a writer who has been, for nearly two decades, the one of the most original and talented ... anywhere." (The New York Times Book Review).
Be With Me
Author: Maya Banks
So much closer than just friends. Hutch Bishop, Cam Douglas, and Sawyer Pritchard were juvenile delinquents with a reckless and wildly sexy side. But they had more in common than that. They had Regina Fallon, a wealthy but lonely girl from the right side of the tracks who formed an unusual friendship with the boys. She felt protected. She felt needed. She felt loved…for the first time in her life. By all three. Today, she’s a police officer, dedicated to her badge, and wary of reigniting her relationship with the hot trio after one night of passion left her confused—and stunned—by what they wanted from her. But when a mysterious attempt is made on her life, Hutch, Cam, and Sawyer jump in to protect her again. Now, the four are forming an all-new bond. It’s more exciting, more intense, and—as a killer looms in the shadows—more dangerous than ever before.
How do we reconcile our need to express our emotions with our desire to protect others? Far too often we find ourselves trapped in this dilemma of expression versus repression. We fear that by expressing our true feelings, we will hurt and alienate those close to us. But by repressing our emotions—even in the benevolent guise of “self-control”—we only risk hurting ourselves. Osho, one of the most provocative and inspiring spiritual teachers of our time, provides here a practical and comprehensive approach to dealing with this conflict effectively. Incorporating new, never-before-published material, Emotional Wellness leads us to understand the roots of our emotions, to react to situations in a way that can teach us more about ourselves and others, and to respond to life’s inevitable ups and downs with far greater confidence and equilibrium. Discover: • The impact that fear, anger, and jealousy have on our lives • How emotions like guilt, insecurity, and fear are used to manipulate us • How to break out of unhealthy responses to strong emotions • How to transform destructive emotions into creative energy • The role of society and culture on our individual emotional styles Osho’s unique insight into the human mind and heart goes far beyond conventional psychology. He teaches us to experience our emotions fully and to deal with them creatively in order to achieve a richer, fuller life. From the Hardcover edition.
Author: Brian Panowich
“[Panowich] pulls off [a] daunting undertaking with astounding success . . . The storytelling is mesmerizing, with virtually every chapter set in a different timeline and focused on a single character, but the sense of immediacy carries over into each era. And while the violence is shocking in its coldhearted brutality, it’s as aesthetically choreographed as any ballet.”—Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review “Brian Panowich stamps words on the page as if they’ve been blasted from the barrel of a shotgun, and as with a shotgun blast, no one is safe from the scattered fragments of history that impale the people of Bull Mountain.”—Wiley Cash, New York Times-bestselling author of This Dark Road to Mercy From a remarkable new voice in Southern fiction, a multigenerational saga of crime, family, and vengeance. Clayton Burroughs comes from a long line of outlaws. For generations, the Burroughs clan has made its home on Bull Mountain in North Georgia, running shine, pot, and meth over six state lines, virtually untouched by the rule of law. To distance himself from his family’s criminal empire, Clayton took the job of sheriff in a neighboring community to keep what peace he can. But when a federal agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms shows up at Clayton’s office with a plan to shut down the mountain, his hidden agenda will pit brother against brother, test loyalties, and could lead Clayton down a path to self-destruction. In a sweeping narrative spanning decades and told from alternating points of view, the novel brilliantly evokes the atmosphere of the mountain and its inhabitants: forbidding, loyal, gritty, and ruthless. A story of family—the lengths men will go to protect it, honor it, or in some cases destroy it—Bull Mountain is an incredibly assured debut that heralds a major new talent in fiction. From the Hardcover edition.

The Ciano Diaries are one of the most important documents recording the events taking place in Europe leading up to the Second World War and how they effected the rest of the world. Galezzo Ciano was in the forefront of those momentous events, not only because he happened to be Mussolini's son in law, but most important because at the age of 35 he was also Italy's Minister of Foreign Affairs and one of the major proponents of the Axis Alliance with Nazi Germany.
