Tra storie, curiosità e leggende metropolitane, ecco a voi 101 itinerari che vi sveleranno il volto inedito di New York. Quella dei fumetti di Spiderman, delle gonne svolazzanti e dei tacchi a spillo di Sex and The City, o quella dell’elegante Audrey Hepburn di Colazione da Tiffany: non esiste angolo di questa città che non sia stato fotografato, filmato, descritto nei versi di una canzone o nelle pagine di un romanzo. Palcoscenico naturale dalle mille anime, la città che non dorme mai è simile a un’allucinazione. Potete passeggiare teneramente mano nella mano a Central Park e poi gustare una raffinata creazione culinaria a Dumbo, sfoggiare i vostri acquisti d’alta moda sulla Quinta Avenue e poi prendere parte a uno stravagante party nell’eclettico Meatpacking District, godervi le visionarie performance sulla spirale del Guggenheim Museum o stupirvi di fronte alle trovate degli artisti di strada che si esibiscono sotto la metropolitana. Che preferiate stare a naso in su a Manhattan a contemplare il Chrysler Building, oppure seduti su una panchina a Brooklyn Heights ad ammirare i grattacieli da lontano, che decidiate di esplorare i sotterranei della Grande Mela alla luce di una torcia o di vivere i quartieri della città più multietnica al mondo, questo è il libro che fa per voi.

A masterpiece of breathtaking scope—a brilliantly conceived epic novel that traces the entire turbulent course of English history This ebook edition features a new introduction by the author in honor of the thirtieth anniversary of Sarum. This rich tapestry weaves a compelling saga of five families—the Wilsons, the Masons, the family of Porteus, the Shockleys, and the Godfreys—who reflect the changing character of Britain. As their fates and fortunes intertwine over the course of the centuries, their greater destinies offer a fascinating glimpse into the future. An absorbing historical chronicle, Sarum is a keen tale of struggle and adventure, a profound human drama, and a magnificent work of sheer storytelling. Praise for Sarum “Bursts with action, encyclopedic in historic detail . . . supremely well crafted and a delight to read.”—Chicago Tribune “A fascinating journey . . . a clear yet sparkling window upon history with a superb narrative, so perfectly balanced between history and fiction that it clears away the mists of time from antiquity, giving the reader the impression that events over a span of ten centuries occurred only yesterday.”—Fort Worth Star-Telegram “Strong . . . appealing . . . I haven’t read so satisfactory a saga in years . . . in fact, perhaps not ever before. . . . It gives you not only history but comfort.”—Chicago Sun-Times “[Edward] Rutherfurd holds us all consistently intrigued. In Sarum he has created a splendid novel that will bring many hours of diversified reading pleasure.”—The Plain Dealer “A richly imagined vision of history, written with genuine delight.”—San Francisco Chronicle “Rutherfurd is at his best. . . . His storytelling skills are substantial. . . . One of the best books of the season.”—Kansas City Star “Absorbing . . . a superior historical novel . . . This blockbuster saga should appeal to discriminating readers, since Rutherfurd has an excellent grasp of his subject and a compelling story to tell.”—Publishers Weekly

The behavioral scientist author of Just the Way You Are presents a provocative argument that the quality of one's life is directly related to the focus of one's attention, drawing on the latest findings in neuroscience and psychology to cover such topics as the human capacity for training concentration, the ways in which the creative mind thinks, and why people deliberate on the wrong factors when making big decisions.

“One of the most rigorously presented and beautifully illustrated critical testaments in all of literature.”—Boston Globe “A brilliant, original approach to literature, a key to Calvino’s own work and a thoroughly delightful and illuminating commentary on some of the world’s greatest writing.”—San Francisco Chronicle At the time of his death, Italo Calvino was at work on six lectures setting forth the qualities in writing he most valued, and which he believed would define literature in the century to come. Here, in Six Memos for the Next Millennium, are the five lectures he completed, forming not only a stirring defense of literature, but also an indispensable guide to the writings of Calvino himself. He devotes one “memo” each to the concepts of lightness, quickness, exactitude, visibility, and multiplicity, drawing examples from his vast knowledge of myth, folklore, and works both ancient and modern. Readers will be astonished by the prescience of these lectures, which have only gained in relevance as Calvino’s “next millennium” has dawned.
