Un Uomo Finito

Un’infanzia solitaria e pensosa; un’adolescenza di sogni tormentosi, illuminata dalle letture; e una giovinezza rivoluzionaria, tra battaglie, giornali, illusioni e disillusioni. *Un uomo finito* (1913) è il romanzo-autobiografia intellettuale nel quale Papini racconta i primi trent’anni di vita di un giovane «nato con la malattia della grandezza». Affascinato da Bergson e dal titanismo di Nietzsche, lo spirito inquieto e geniale dell’autore, alla perenne ricerca della verità, rivive in un racconto sincero animato da una prosa ricca e brillante, con accenti di profonda poesia. Un’opera imprescindibile per cogliere la temperatura ideale, l’entusiasmo e la delusione della generazione di intellettuali che inaugura il Novecento.

Un uomo chiamato Magobion

Da ragazzo, Laurie Linton sentiva delle voci e aveva delle strane, spettrali apparizioni, come quella di un uomo che tentava di dargli un urgente, importante messaggio: uccidi Magobion! Anni dopo, come agente della squadra speciale antinarcotici, Laurie Linton si ritrova a investigare, assieme alla bella Carol Kennedy, sul caso misterioso di una ragazza tossicodipendente, dedita a una droga che le permette di teletrasportare gli oggetti e le dà altre facoltà superumane. Sarà proprio questa investigazione a fornire a Laurie Linton la risposta al mistero delle voci che sentiva da fanciullo: un’investigazione che porterà Laurie e Carol in un incredibile labirinto dove il passato e il futuro si scambiano e si fondono insieme, dove la pace internazionale barcolla, dove un folle megalomane è a capo di un progetto segretissimo che cerca di utilizzare tremende droghe e poteri superumani per i propri scopi di potenza, un uomo che si chiama Piers Magobion!

Un esperienza personale

Tori-bird è chiamato così perché sembra sempre in fuga da tutto, da tutti e da ogni responsabilità, fino a quando il destino lo pone di fronte a un caso drammatico: un figlio nato con una grave malformazione cerebrale. Tori-bird, inizialmente incapace di reagire, si augura che il bambino muoia al più presto, ma via via comprende che questo altro non sarebbe che l’ennesimo modo per sfuggire alla realtà e si convince che di fatto ciò che lo trattiene sull’orlo del baratro è proprio il pensiero della lotta solitaria del suo bambino sfortunato. Dal contenuto autobiografico, il romanzo è anche una metafora del Giappone del dopoguerra e un’analisi della condizione umana nel secolo di Hiroshima.

  • Whitewash

    It’s the pesticide on our dinner plates, a chemical so pervasive it’s in the air we breathe, our water, our soil, and even found increasingly in our own bodies. Known as Monsanto’s Roundup by consumers, and as glyphosate by scientists, the world’s mpopular weed killer is used everywhere from backyard gardens to golf courses to millions of acres of farmland. For decades it’s been touted as safe enough to drink, but a growing body of evidence indicates just the opposite, with research tying the chemical to cancers and a hof other health threats.
    In *Whitewash* , veteran journalist Carey Gillam uncovers one of the mcontroversial stories in the history of food and agriculture, exposing new evidence of corporate influence. Gillam introduces readers to farm families devastated by cancers which they believe are caused by the chemical, and to scientists whose reputations have been smeared for publishing research that contradicted business interests. Readers learn about the arm-twisting of regulators who signed off on the chemical, echoing company assurances of safety even as they permitted higher residues of the pesticide in food and skipped compliance tests. And, in startling detail, Gillam reveals secret industry communications that pull back the curtain on corporate efforts to manipulate public perception.
    *Whitewash* is more than an exposé about the hazards of one chemical or even the influence of one company. It’s a storyof power, politics, and the deadly consequences of putting corporate interests ahead of public safety.
