Dov’eri tu quando le stelle del mattino gioivano in coro?

Cosa succede in un tempo sospeso quando qualsiasi promessa di bellezza, felicità, giustizia sembra rivelarsi illusoria? In che modo si può reagire a una catastrofe sentimentale che pare riguardare non solo se stessi, ma un’intera generazione? L’autore lascia il compito di rispondere a una teoria di personaggi che, per salvarsi, non possono più permettersi difese. Suore in crisi di vocazione, bambini che girano l’Italia a piedi, innamorati che hanno paura di diventare assassini, angeli poco credibili, malati terminali ancorati soltanto alla propria debolezza. Otto piccoli atti di fede nell’umanità di coloro che sono costretti a vivere in questo tempo guasto e si ostinano a cercare una forma non compromissoria di desiderio e d’amore.

Diario 1999

Con questo libro, la Fazi avvia la pubblicazione dei diari di Valentino Zeichen, testi finora inediti di grandissima importanza sia dal punto di vista umano che culturale. In Diario 1999, annotazioni, pensieri, poesie ma anche piccole recensioni di film e sogni, stanno insieme a dettagliati resoconti di serate mondane, cene e incontri, cui Zeichen partecipò assiduamente per tutta la vita e che nel tempo gli permisero di collezionare una cerchia di amicizie davvero d’eccezione: un corpus di scritti prezioso e variegato, dunque, ricco di notizie sull’attività di letterati, poeti, artisti, noti e meno noti, vissuti a Roma a cavallo del Millennio. Scritto sul limitare di un secolo decisivo, il diario del 1999 offre un assaggio significativo di quella che è stata la capacità d’osservazione di Zeichen che, unita al suo spirito critico e talvolta pungente, mostrava sempre un punto di vista originale sul mondo. Nomi, fatti, aneddoti, commenti personali e giudizi senza peli sulla lingua, spesso spiazzanti, caustici, feroci, in puro stile Zeichen, rendono bene l’idea di quelli che sono stati i protagonisti dell’intellighenzia italiana in un determinato giro di anni. Amarezze, piccole gioie, riflessioni sulla vecchiaia e sul passare del tempo sono al centro di questo volume insieme alla constatazione degli spietati meccanismi del sistema culturale nostrano, spesso capace di emarginare o accogliere con disinvolta leggerezza. Un libro prezioso per capire l’uomo ma anche l’ottica originale di un poeta che è stato uno dei protagonisti assoluti della Roma intellettuale fra vecchio e nuovo millennio, fino a diventare figura di culto e quasi paradigma di ciò che vuol dire vivere di poesia oggi.

Devoted in Death

**Eve Dallas tracks a couple whose passion is fueled by cold brutality in the newest crime thriller from the #1 *New York Times* –bestselling author of *Obsession in Death* and *Festive in Death*.**
When Lieutenant Eve Dallas examines a body in a downtown Manhattan alleyway, the victim’s injuries are so extensive that she almost misses the clue. Carved into the skin is the shape of a heart—and initials inside reading *E* and *D* . . .
Ella-Loo and her boyfriend, Darryl, had been separated while Darryl was a guest of the state of Oklahoma, and now that his sentence has been served they don’t ever intend to part again. Ella-Loo’s got dreams. And Darryl believes there are better ways to achieve your dreams than working for them. So they hit the road, and when their car breaks down in Arkansas, they make plans to take someone else’s. Then things get messy and they wind up killing someone—an experience that stokes a fierce, wild desire in Ella-Loo. A desire for Darryl. And a desire to kill again.
As they cross state lines on their way to New York to find the life they think they deserve, they will leave a trail of evil behind them. But now they’ve landed in the jurisdiction of Lieutenant Dallas and her team at the New York Police and Security Department. And with her husband, Roarke, at her side, she has every intention of hunting them down and giving them what they truly deserve . . .

Devil’s Punch

*The power swelled inside me, burning, hurting, but I let it center me. Pain means I’m still here, fighting. I envisioned it swelling in my hand in a seething rush, gathering, gathering, and then I sent it out on my resolve like a dark and winged thing riding the magickal wind.*
As a handler, Corine Solomon can touch any object and learn its history. Her power is a gift, but one that’s thrown her life off track.

Back home, Corine is trying to rebuild her pawnshop and her life with her ex, Chance, despite the target on her back. But when the demons she provoked kidnap her best friend in retaliation, Corine puts everything on hold to rescue her. It’s undoubtedly a trap, but Corine will do anything to save those she loves, even if it means sacrificing herself…

Destinatario Sconosciuto

Germania, 1932. Martin, tedesco, e Max, ebreo americano, sono due amici fraterni e soci in affari. L’ombra della storia si proietta sul loro destino. Con l’avvento di Hitler i contrasti ideologici precipitano fino a diventare insanabili. Impossibile credere ancora nell’amicizia. Fino al colpo di scena finale: quando ci sarà un ribaltamento radicale nei rapporti di forza tra i due protagonisti per una conclusione “impossibile da dimenticare”. Un viaggio alle radici dell’odio, un libro intenso e appassionato, pubblicato per la prima volta in America nel 1938, che rappresentò con lucida chiaroveggenza il clima di spietato razzismo in cui maturò l’Olocausto.

Denti

“Nel primo pomeriggio del 2 marzo di tre anni fa persi in un sol colpo due incisivi. Erano quelli che mi servivano per pronunciare il mio nome”. Così inizia il nuovo romanzo di Starnone.

Il luogo è una Roma d’autunno. Il tempo è il nostro, tempo delle nevrosi quotidiane. Una storia di denti, mascelle, labbra e ganasce e di dentisti, odontoiatri e cavadenti. Ma anche una storia di amori, mogli, figli, amanti e rivali.

If Joanne is to stop its campaign of terror, she’ll have to hunt it where it lives: the Lower World, a shamanistic plane of magic and spirits. Trouble is, Joanne’s skills are no match for the dangers she’s about to face–and her on-the-job training could prove fatal to the people she’s sworn to protect….

Daughter of Magic

IF HE’S LUCKY, SHE WON’T TURN HIM INTO A FROG….

But he’s finding he also has to play dad to the rest of the younger generation of Yurt. The duchess’ stubborn twin daughters want to be respectively a knight and a priest, careers closed to women, and young King Paul is balking at marrying a perfectly respectable woman and wants to run away with the cook’s daughter. Daimbert also has to deal with an exotic eastern princess seeking sanctuary in Yurt, accompanied only by her elephant, a metallic automaton and a flying carpet; an army of undead warriors; an evil spell that attacks him personally; and an enormous fenris-wolf who just might finish him off. But worst of all is Cyrus, aa bogus miracle worker who just happens to be working for Vlad, an evil wizard from the east who has long sought vengeance against Yurt. Because Cyrus has the power to influence children–and he uses this to pipe them all–including Daimbert’s daughter–out of town, and into the hands of Vlad….

Now there’s a strange, foreign pulse coursing through her, and no matter what she does, she can’t stop thinking about Roman — and longing for his touch.

Frantic to break the spell before its too late, Ever turns to Jude for help, risking everything she knows and loves to save herself — and her future with Damen….

Cuori fanatici

Tutti i cuori sono fanatici. Quelli che ci racconta Edoardo Albinati hanno tra i venti e i trent’anni, e sono posseduti da una smania inesauribile: di capire, di essere se stessi eppure diversi, di proteggersi e bruciare. Vogliono poter desiderare senza limiti. Intorno all’amicizia tra Nanni e Nico – il nucleo centrale del romanzo – si ramificano le vicende di una folla di personaggi: studenti pigri, bambine insonni, nonne dispotiche, supplenti dalle trecce bionde, maghi e terroristi, ragazze alla pari e dj. A legarli sono sempre le parole, usate per sedurre e punire: Cuori fanatici è dunque un talk novel, romanzo di parole lanciate addosso e strappate di nascosto, di ragionamenti sofisticati o brutali, di chiacchierate assurde e litigi sussurrati. Dopo la monumentale ricerca de La scuola cattolica, spostandosi verso l’inizio degli anni Ottanta, Albinati inaugura una nuova saga dove la posta in gioco sono le profondità oscure delle vite di ognuno di noi e le superfici scintillanti dei rapporti con cui si intrecciano. È la forza della letteratura a rendere conto dello slancio dei suoi cuori fanatici e a guidarli nel labirinto dove possono perdersi o salvarsi, e che ciascuno guardandosi allo specchio chiama: la mia vita

Crown of Shadows

DESCENT INTO HELL…. For more than a millennium now Erna’s humans have maintained an uneasy stalemate with the fae, that treacherous force of nature which feeds on the human psyche. Adepts and sorcerers work the fae for their own profit, while the demonic creatures who feed upon such efforts rapidly gain in power and ambition. Now one of these demons, a lezu called Calesta, has declared war on all of mankind. Master of illusion, devourer of pain, he plans to remake the human species until mankind exists only to sate his unquenchable thirst for suffering, and omens of his triumph are already apparent. Only Dammien Vryce, warrior-priest of the One God, and his unlikely ally, the undead sorcerer Gerald Tarrant stand between Calesta and his triumph. Nothing short of the demons absolute destruction will save mankind from his unholy influence. But no one on Erna is certain just what the lezu really are, and no man has ever succeeded in killing one. Faced with an enemy who may prose invulnerable. Damien and Tarrant must risk everything in a war that will take them from the depths of Hell to the birthplace of demons and beyond — in a battle which could cost them not only their lives, but the very soul of all mankind.
