Deaver, Jeffery

The cutting edge : a Lincoln rhyme novel / Jeffery Deaver

New York ; Boston : Grand Central, 2018

Abstract: In the early hours of a quiet, weekend morning in Manhattan's Diamond District, a brutal triple murder shocks the city. Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs quickly take the case. Curiously, the killer has left behind a half-million dollars' worth of gems at the murder scene, a jewelry store on 47th street. As more crimes follow, it becomes clear that the killer's target is not gems, but engaged couples themselves. The Promisor vows to take the lives of men and women during their most precious moments--midway through the purchase of an engagement ring, after a meeting with a wedding planner, trying on the perfect gown for a day that will never come. The Promisor arrives silently, armed with knife or gun, and a time of bliss is transformed, in an instant, to one of horror...

Giovanni Bellini: landscapes of faith in renaissance Venice / edited by Davide Gasparotto ; with contributions by Hans Belting... [et al.]

Los Angeles : The J. Paul Getty Museum, 2017

Abstract: Giovanni Bellini (ca. 1435-1516) was the premier venetian painter of the Quattrocento and one of the greatest italian artists of all time. In Bellini's work landscape assumed a prominence unseen in Western art since classical antiquity. Drawing from a selection of masterpieces that span his long and successful career, this book focuses on the main function of landscape in his oeuvre, which was to enhance the meditational natureof paintings inteded for the private devotion of intellectually sophisticated, elite patrons... This catalogue, which documents the first exhibition in America devoted solely to Bellini, includes a biography of the artist, essays bu leading authorities in the field explicating the themes of the show, and detailed discussions and glorious reproduction fo the thirteen works in the exhibition, including their history and provenance, function, iconography, chronology and style. Giovanni Bellini fu il principale pittore veneziano del Quattrocento ed uno dei più grandi artisti italiani di tutti i tempi. Nell'opera di Bellini il paesaggio assunse un'importanza sconosciuta nell'arte occidentale dai tempi dell'antichità classica. A partire da una selezione di capolavori che copre la sua lunga e fortunata carriera artistica, questo libro focalizza l'attenzione sul ruolo primario del paesaggio nella sua opera, che era quello di accrescere la natura meditativa della pittura secondo l'intenzione di committenti intellettualmente sofisticati.

Autoboyography / Christina Lauren

New York [etc.] : Simon & Schuster, 2017

Abstract: Three years ago, Tanner Scott’s family relocated from California to Utah, a move that nudged the bisexual teen temporarily back into the closet. Now, with one semester of high school to go, and no obstacles between him and out-of-state college freedom, Tanner plans to coast through his remaining classes and clear out of Utah. But when his best friend Autumn dares him to take Provo High’s prestigious Seminar—where honor roll students diligently toil to draft a book in a semester—Tanner can’t resist going against his better judgment and having a go, if only to prove to Autumn how silly the whole thing is. Writing a book in four months sounds simple. Four months is an eternity. It turns out, Tanner is only partly right: four months is a long time. After all, it takes only one second for him to notice Sebastian Brother, the Mormon prodigy who sold his own Seminar novel the year before and who now mentors the class. And it takes less than a month for Tanner to fall completely in love with him.

Here I am / Jonathan Safran Foer

New York : Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2016

Abstract: In the book of Genesis, when God calls out, "Abraham!" before ordering him to sacrifice his son, Isaac, Abraham responds, "Here I am." Later, when Isaac calls out, "My father!" before asking him why there is no animal to slaughter, Abraham responds, "Here I am." How do we fulfill our conflicting duties as father, husband, and son; wife and mother; child and adult? Jew and American? How can we claim our own identities when our lives are linked so closely to others? These are the questions at the heart of Jonathan Safran Foer's first novel in eleven years - a work of extraordinary scope and heartbreaking intimacy. Unfolding over four tumultuous weeks in present-day Washington, D.C., Here I Am is the story of a fracturing family in a moment of crisis. As Jacob and Julia Bloch and their three sons are forced to confront the distances between the lives they think they want and the lives they are living, a catastrophic earthquake sets in motion a quickly escalating conflict in the Middle East. At stake is the meaning of home - and the fundamental question of how much aliveness one can bear. Showcasing the same high-energy inventiveness, hilarious irreverence, and emotional urgency that readers loved in his earlier work, Here I Am is Foer's most searching, hard-hitting, and grandly entertaining novel yet. It not only confirms Foer's stature as a dazzling literary talent but reveals a novelist who has fully come into his own as one of our most important writers.

We are the ants / Shaun David Hutchinson

[New York... etc.] : Pulse, 2016

Abstract: Henry Denton è periodicamente rapito dagli alieni. Alieni che, adesso, gli hanno dato un ultimatum: il mondo finirà tra 144 giorni e tutto quello che Henry deve fare per fermare l’apocalisse è premere un grande pulsante rosso. Solo, lui non è sicuro di volerlo fare. Dopotutto la vita non è stata giusta con Henry. Sua madre è una cameriera che è tenuta insieme da un sottile strato di fumo di sigaretta, suo fratello è un disoccupato che ha lasciato il college dopo aver messo incinta la sua ragazza e sua nonna sta perdendo la battaglia contro l’Alzheimer. E Henry sta ancora affrontando il dolore per il suicidio del suo ragazzo. Passare un colpo di spugna non gli sembra poi una cattiva idea. Ma Henry è uno scienziato e decide di affrontare la cosa con logica, e allora comincia a pesare il dolore e la gioia che lo circondano, e a lui è lasciata l’ultima parola: premere il pulsante e salvare il pianeta e tutti i suoi abitanti… o lasciare il mondo – e il suo dolore – sparire per sempre.

Me before you / Jojo Moyes

New York : Penguin books, 2016

Abstract: A ventisei anni, Louisa Clark sa tante cose. Sa esattamente quanti passi ci sono tra la fermata dell'autobus e casa sua. Sa che le piace fare la cameriera in un locale senza troppe pretese nella piccola località turistica dove è nata e da cui non si è mai mossa, e probabilmente, nel profondo del suo cuore, sa anche di non essere davvero innamorata di Patrick, il ragazzo con cui è fidanzata da quasi sette anni. Quello che invece ignora è che sta per perdere il lavoro e che, per la prima volta, tutte le sue certezze saranno messe in discussione. A trentacinque anni, Will Traynor sa che il terribile incidente di cui è rimasto vittima gli ha tolto la voglia di vivere. Sa che niente può più essere come prima, e sa esattamente come porre fine a questa sofferenza. Quello che invece ignora è che Lou sta per irrompere prepotentemente nella sua vita portando con sé un'esplosione di giovinezza, stravaganza e abiti variopinti. E nessuno dei due sa che sta per cambiare l'altro per sempre. Io prima di te è la storia di un incontro. L'incontro fra una ragazza che ha scelto di vivere in un mondo piccolo, sicuro, senza sorprese e senza rischi, e un uomo che ha conosciuto il successo, la ricchezza e la felicità, e all'improvviso li ha visti dissolversi, ritrovandosi inchiodato su una sedia a rotelle. Due persone profondamente diverse, che imparano a conoscersi senza però rinunciare a se stesse, insegnando l'una all'altra a mettersi in gioco.

Abstract: In the spring of 1984, high school students Amanda Collier and Dawson Cole fell deeply, irrevocably in love. Though they were from opposite sides of the tracks, their love for one another seemed to defy the realities of life in the small town of Oriental, North Carolina. But as the summer of their senior year came to a close, unforeseen events would tear the young couple apart, setting them on radically divergent paths. Now, twenty-five years later, Amanda and Dawson are summoned back to Oriental for the funeral of Tuck Hostetler, the mentor who once gave shelter to their high school romance. Neither has lived the life they imagined . . . and neither can forget the passionate first love that forever changed their lives. As Amanda and Dawson carry out the instructions Tuck left behind for them, they realize that everything they thought they knew -- about Tuck, about themselves, and about the dreams they held dear -- was not as it seemed. Forced to confront painful memories, the two former lovers will discover undeniable truths about the choices they have made. And in the course of a single, searing weekend, they will ask of the living, and the dead: Can love truly rewrite the past?
