5 storie d'amore per un'estate romantica, sexy e divertente Estate: tempo di partenze, vacanze e amori inattesi... come per Titti, che, rimasta sulle spiagge triestine, si abbandonerà a un momento di trasgressione in assenza del marito; o per Lexie, che, partita con gli amici per il Messico, vivrà un’estate romantica e indimenticabile. A chi invece ha scelto il campeggio ed è alla ricerca di avventure, come Sveva, Silvia e Chiara, i giorni in tenda potranno riservare qualche gradita sorpresa... Ma c’è anche chi resta in città e, complice il clima rovente, si lascia andare a una passione che scotta, che seduce, che diverte. Come Stella che, trovandosi a trascorrere l’estate a Roma d’agosto, insegna danze latino-americane in uno stabilimento di Ostia. Ma un misterioso nipote di una delle sue allieve arriverà a turbare le sue tranquille e afose giornate. È un corteggiamento peccaminoso tra fondant al cacao nero e torte prelibate, quello di Roberta, giornalista free lance intrappolata in un matrimonio noioso... Che siate sotto l’ombrellone, un sole infuocato o al fresco della montagna, lasciatevi tentare da questi racconti piccanti e irresistibili, perché anche la vostra possa essere un’estate di baci! Perché un'estate senza baci non vale la pena di essere ricordata!

THE DOOR IS OPEN . . . For young widow Ellen Wood, her Victorian home is a refuge—a place to feel safe with her eleven-year-old son, Charlie. But when money grows so tight that Ellen could lose the house, her sister, Hannah, makes a radical suggestion . . . rent out some of the rooms. Soon Ellen has three lodgers: Sabine, a German coworker of Hannah’s, recently separated from her husband; Allegra, an eccentric but wise novelist; and Matt, an up-and-coming young journalist in search of his voice, who has just landed a plum job in London. Ellen thinks three strangers are the last complication she needs, but they make her realize just how isolated she has become. Their presence exposes a secret she’s been keeping hidden, as well as a conflict with her sister that is both shocking and revealing. And while a love affair with a younger man seems like a fantasy powered by her imagination, Ellen can’t deny her deep connection to Matt, or the changes he inspires in her and her relationship with Charlie. Outside her home’s sheltering walls lies a world of opportunity as well as danger. Now that she’s had the courage to open the door, does Ellen dare step through? Witty, moving, and deeply insightful, The Home for Broken Hearts celebrates everything that makes life worth living, from an author who knows just how to speak to the heart.

Long hailed as a seminal work of modernism in the tradition of Joyce and Kafka, and now available in a supple new English translation, Italo Svevo’s charming and splendidly idiosyncratic novel conducts readers deep into one hilariously hyperactive and endlessly self-deluding mind. The mind in question belongs to Zeno Cosini, a neurotic Italian businessman who is writing his confessions at the behest of his psychiatrist. Here are Zeno’s interminable attempts to quit smoking, his courtship of the beautiful yet unresponsive Ada, his unexpected–and unexpectedly happy–marriage to Ada’s homely sister Augusta, and his affair with a shrill-voiced aspiring singer. Relating these misadventures with wry wit and a perspicacity at once unblinking and compassionate, Zeno’s Conscience is a miracle of psychological realism.

"Cosima" tells the story of an aspiring writer growing up in Nuoro, Sardinia during the last decades of the nineteenth century when formal education for women was rare and literary careers unheard-of. Based on Deledda's own life, the work describes a young woman's struggle against the dismay and disapproval of her family and friends at her creative ambitions. Yet it also reads like a charming fable with details of family life, rural traditions and wild bandits, and it is as much a novel of memory as of character or action. Deledda's characters are poor country folk driven by some predetermined force. Their loves are tragic, their lives as hard and as rigidly controlled as nature itself in the hills of Sardinia. Deledda creates memorable figures who play out their lives against this backdrop of mountains and bare plains, sheepfolds and vineyards. Shimmering in the distance is the sea and escape - for a few - to the Continent or America. In 1926 Grazia Deledda became the second woman and the second Italian to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature. She wrote thirty-three novels, including "Reeds in the Wind," and many books of short stories, almost all set on Sardinia. Her work has become well known to English-speaking readers through Martha King's translations for Italica Press.
