Abstract: "A marriage is always two intersecting stories." This realization comes perhaps too late to the husband of Etna Bliss-a man whose obsession with his young wife begins at the moment of their first meeting, as he helps Etna and her companions escape from a fire in a hotel restaurant, and culminates in a marriage doomed by secrets and betrayal. Written with the intelligence and grace that are the hallmarks of Anita Shreve's bestselling novels, this gripping tale of desire, jealousy, and loss is peopled by unforgettable characters as real as the emotions that bring them together.

And this time Becky Bloomwood and her credit cards are headed across the Atlantic.… With her shopping excesses (somewhat) in check and her career as a TV financial guru thriving, Becky’s biggest problem seems to be tearing her entrepreneur boyfriend, Luke, away from work for a romantic country weekend.

Abstract: In the last decade, there has been much research into the exact events surrounding the assassination of John F. Kennedy. According to new information gathered and assessed by Matthew Smith, JFK was murdered on orders emanating from the “alternative” government—the Establishment—which catered to “big business” and which Kennedy was in the process of divesting of power in favor of a government that put people first. The President’s new priorities won him few friends in the government, and Smith emphasizes the fact that most of his policies were dismantled within 18 months of his death. Indeed, his decision to withdraw from the early stages of Vietnam was reversed within hours. In Say Goodbye to America, Matthew Smith carefully examines the role of domestic and international business concerns and how government policies swiftly changed after JFK’s assassination—including the engagement in Vietnam, a war that generated “business” to the tune of $200 billion.
Penguin books, 2004
Abstract: Everywhere acclaimed and talked about, An Unfinished Life is the first major, single-volume biography of John F. Kennedy to be written by a historian in nearly four decades. Drawing upon previously unavailable material and never-before-opened archives, the book is packed with revelations both large and small-about JFK's health, his love affairs, RFK's appointment as Attorney General, what Joseph Kennedy did to help his son's election to the presidency, and the path JFK would have taken in the Vietnam entanglement had he survived. AN UNFINISHED LIFE strikes a critical balance-brilliantly exploring JFK's strengths, never shying away from his weaknesses-as it offers up a virtuoso portrait of a bold, brave, complex, heroic, human Kennedy.

Abstract: 13 giugno 1923. Clarissa Dalloway, una signora dell'alta borghesia londinese, esce a comprare i fiori per la festa che sta organizzando per la sera. Passeggia per le strade di Londra, sfiora la vita di tanti sconosciuti, ma non ha il fare allegro di chi si prepara a qualcosa di lieto, il suo incedere è incerto e continuamente ostacolato da pensieri che le affollano la mente, da ricordi che si intrecciano con la nostalgia di ciò che è sfuggito e mai potrà tornare. Desideri, angosce e paure della solitudine, della morte ma anche della vita, si rincorrono in un flusso incessante di parole che aprono ad altre parole. Con La signora Dalloway, qui proposta in una nuova traduzione, Virginia Woolf ci regala un grande romanzo lirico, capace di rivelare tutta la precarietà degli esseri umani, feriti dalle circostanze, inermi di fronte alle correnti della sofferenza e della gioia. Introduzione di Antonella Anedda.
