Mai piu cosi vicina

Mai piu cosi vicina

Автор: Serrano C.

Da un’assolata città del Sud, Antonia, una ragazza che mette i tacchi anche per fare la spesa, arriva a Milano accarezzando il sogno di scrivere un romanzo che ha in mente da tempo. L’?impatto con la città e con il suo cielo senza colore non è dei più incoraggianti, finché un’amica non la trascina a una conferenza letteraria e in poche ore tutto quello che Antonia ha pensato non conta più. Milano le regala Vittorio, un uomo molto diverso da lei: Vittorio è un editore, appartiene ai ceti alti, è disinvolto, ha due occhi magnetici e quell’aria libera e sfrontata di chi non scende a compromessi. E soprattutto ha una vita sociale che intimidisce Antonia, ma nel contempo la affascina. Il bicchiere e la sigaretta sempre in mano, chiacchiere fino all’alba di cinema e libri con amici impegnati, romantiche gite in moto lungo i tornanti mozzafiato della Liguria. Antonia si innamora follemente di lui, ma qualcosa non funziona. Vittorio è sfuggente, sparisce, riappare, si sottrae, non programma e non promette. E proprio come la ragazzina down protagonista del suo romanzo, Antonia è costretta a misurarsi con i suoi limiti e le sue paure. Ogni donna sa che cosa significa incontrare il grande amore. E ogni donna sa bene che cosa significa perderlo. Con una scrittura poetica, coinvolgente, emo­zionante, Mai più così vicina racconta il disperato tentativo di non mandare in pezzi il sogno più grande e più bello della vita.

Homecoming

Homecoming

Автор: Morpurgo Michael

In this involving tale, master storyteller and former children’s laureate Michael Morpurgo revisits the «landscape of his memories», telling of his boyhood fifty years before. The village of Bradwell is a stone’s throw from the sea and is peopled by quirky characters such as the three Stebbing sisters, the white moustachioed Colonel Burton and Bennie the village thug. But the heroine of this story is the serene Mrs Pettigrew, who lives in a railway carriage down in the marshes with her dogs, donkey, bees and hens. Industrial reality intrudes when plans are made to build a nuclear power station on the marshes, and when a village battle ensues for and against this environmental hazard, young Michael finds himself caught up in the sad fate of Mrs Pettigrew and the landscape of his boyhood.
