Huxley, Aldous

Brave new world / Aldous Huxley

London : Vintage, 2018

Abstract: Far in the future, the World Controllers have created the ideal society. Through genetic engineering, brainwashing and recreational sex and drugs all its members are happy consumers. Bernard Marx seems alone in feeling discontent, harbouring an ill-defined longing to break free. A visit to one of the few remaining Savage Reservations, where the old, imperfect life still continues, may be the cure for his distress... Huxley's ingenious fantasy of the future sheds a blazing light on the present and is considered to be his most enduring masterpiece.

Shore, Stephen

Lezione di fotografia : la natura delle fotografie / Stephen Shore

London : Phaidon, 2017

Abstract: In "Lezione di fotografia", Stephen Shore esamina diversi metodi per comprendere e rapportarsi con diverse tipologie di fotografia: dalle immagini convenzionali alle vecchie fotografie, dai negativi ai file digitali. Questo libro, risultato dei numerosi anni in cui l'autore ha insegnato fotografia al Bard College, nello Stato di New York, è uno utile strumento per studenti, insegnanti e per chiunque voglia scattare fotografie migliori, o imparare a guardarle con maggiore consapevolezza. A fianco a una selezione delle opere dello stesso Shore, "Lezione di fotografia" contiene immagini che abbracciano tutta la storia della fotografia, dalle opere dei padri di questa tecnica, quali Alfred Stieglitz e Walker Evans, a quelle di artisti contemporanei come Collier Schorr e Thomas Struth. Abbraccia diversi generi, come la fotografia di strada, la fotografia d'arte e la fotografia documentaria, come pure immagini di fotografi sconosciuti, si tratti di vecchie foto ricordo o di fotografie aeree scattate nel corso di rilevamenti cartografici. Shore utilizza queste opere, insieme alla sua prosa precisa, incisiva e accessibile, per dimostrare come, di fronte alla macchina fotografica, il mondo venga trasformato in una fotografia.

Hawkins, Paula <1972- >

Into the water / Paula Hawkins

London [etc.] : Doubleday, 2017

Abstract: A single mother turns up dead at the bottom of the river that runs through town. Earlier in the summer, a vulnerable teenage girl met the same fate. They are not the first women lost to these dark waters, but their deaths disturb the river and its history, dredging up secrets long submerged. Left behind is a lonely fifteen-year-old girl. Parentless and friendless, she now finds herself in the care of her mother's sister, a fearful stranger who has been dragged back to the place she deliberately ran from a place to which she vowed she'd never return. With the same propulsive writing and acute understanding of human instincts that captivated millions of readers around the world in her explosive debut thriller, The Girl on the Train, Paula Hawkins delivers an urgent, twisting, deeply satisfying read that hinges on the deceptiveness of emotion and memory, as well as the devastating ways that the past can reach a long arm into the present. Beware a calm surface you never know what lies beneath.

The sun is also a star / Nicola Yoon

London : Gorgi books, 2016

Abstract: Natasha: I’m a girl who believes in science and facts. Not fate. Not destiny. Or dreams that will never come true. I’m definitely not the kind of girl who meets a cute boy on a crowded New York City street and falls in love with him. Not when my family is twelve hours away from being deported to Jamaica. Falling in love with him won’t be my story. Daniel: I’ve always been the good son, the good student, living up to my parents’ high expectations. Never the poet. Or the dreamer. But when I see her, I forget about all that. Something about Natasha makes me think that fate has something much more extraordinary in store—for both of us. The Universe: Every moment in our lives has brought us to this single moment. A million futures lie before us. Which one will come true?

Pride and prejudice / Jane Austen

London : Oxford, 2010

Abstract: Orgoglio e Pregiudizio è incentrato sulla famiglia Bennet, composta dai coniugi Bennet e da cinque figlie in età da marito: Jane, Elizabeth, Mary, Kitty e Lydia. Protagonista della storia è in modo particolare Elizabeth (chiamata anche Lizzy) e la trama segue lo svilupparsi del suo rapporto con Mr. Darcy, ma anche la storia tra Jane e il signor Bingley e tra Lydia e Wickham. La storia inizia quando a Longbourn nell’Hertfordshire, città in cui vivono le ragazze Bennet, arriva un ricco scapolo, il Signor Bingley: l’evento crea particolare eccitazione nella signora Bennet, il cui obiettivo è quello di vedere le figlie sposate con un buon partito il prima possibile. Mentre la signora Bennet viene dal principio descritta come una donna frivola e superficiale, il signor Bennet è rappresentato come un uomo arguto e sarcastico affezionato soprattutto alle sue figlie più grandi, ossia Jane, dal carattere mite e dolce, ed Elizabeth, razionale, determinata e assennata...

To the end of the land / David Grossman : translated from the hebrew by Jessica Cohen

London : Johnatan Cape, 2010

Abstract: From one of Israel’s most acclaimed writers comes a novel of extraordinary power about family life—the greatest human drama—and the cost of war. Ora, a middle-aged Israeli mother, is on the verge of celebrating her son Ofer’s release from army service when he returns to the front for a major offensive. In a fit of preemptive grief and magical thinking, she sets out for a hike in the Galilee, leaving no forwarding information for the “notifiers” who might darken her door with the worst possible news. Recently estranged from her husband, Ilan, she drags along an unlikely companion: their former best friend and her former lover Avram, once a brilliant artistic spirit. Avram served in the army alongside Ilan when they were young, but their lives were forever changed one weekend when the two jokingly had Ora draw lots to see which of them would get the few days’ leave being offered by their commander—a chance act that sent Avram into Egpyt and the Yom Kippur War, where he was brutally tortured as POW. In the aftermath, a virtual hermit, he refused to keep in touch with the family and has never met the boy. Now, as Ora and Avram sleep out in the hills, ford rivers, and cross valleys, avoiding all news from the front, she gives him the gift of Ofer, word by word; she supplies the whole story of her motherhood, a retelling that keeps Ofer very much alive for Ora and for the reader, and opens Avram to human bonds undreamed of in his broken world. Their walk has a “war and peace” rhythm, as their conversation places the most hideous trials of war next to the joys and anguish of raising children. Never have we seen so clearly the reality and surreality of daily life in Israel, the currents of ambivalence about war within one household, and the burdens that fall on each generation anew. Grossman’s rich imagining of a family in love and crisis makes for one of the great antiwar novels of our time.

Abstract: La giovane americana Isabel Archer sa quello che vuole: alla ricerca di un ruolo pubblico e e di modelli di comportamento meno provinciali, decide di stabilirsi in Europa, rifiuta due proposte di matrimonio, e, diventata ricca al punto di potersi permettere tutto, resta intrappolata in quella ricca società fiorentina e romana che ha il suo campione in Gilbert Osmond, uno snob in caccia di patrimoni. Sarà lui a perfezionare il destino di solitudine di Isabel che si avvierà per gradi, come Madame Bovary, alla propria dissoluzione psichica.
