Ministri, onorevoli e boiardi di Stato fanno la fila nel suo ufficio per chiedergli consigli, disegnare strategie e discutere di affari. Luigi Bisignani è unanimemente riconosciuto come il capo indiscusso di un network che condiziona la vita del paese. Non c’è operazione in cui non ci sia il suo zampino, dalle nomine dei ministri a quelle in Rai, nei giornali, nelle banche e nell’esercito. La sua influenza arriva persino in Vaticano. In questo libro, per la prima volta, Bisignani decide di raccontarsi attraverso aneddoti ed episodi inediti. Da Andreotti e la P2 a Berlusconi e Bergoglio. Lui che non appare mai in tv, non scrive sui giornali e disdegna la mondanità. La sua testimonianza da questo punto di vista è unica. Ecco come funziona il potere, quello vero, che non ha bisogno di parole e agisce nell’ombra.

Miranda Sugarman was supposed to be in the Midwest, working as an eye doctor. So how did she end up shot to death on the roof of one of New York City’s seediest strip clubs? It’s John Blake’s job to find out – not just because he’s a private investigator, but because ten years earlier, Miranda had been his lover. Now he has to uncover the truth about the missing decade, about Miranda’s secret life as half of the strip club circuit’s hottest act, and about the vicious underworld figure she worked for. But the closer John gets to the truth, the more dangerous his investigation becomes, until a shattering faceoff in an East Village tenement changes his life forever. Little Girl Lost is a stunning debut novel from a celebrated writer whose short stories have been selected for Best Mystery Stories of the Year and The Year’s Best Horror Stories as well as short-listed for the Shamus Award by the Private Eye Writers of America.

Masonry is much more than a social organisation of fraternal benefit to its members. It is a spiritual quest and a way of life and its destiny is to bring spiritual benefits to all men, Masons and non-Masons alike. The right function of modern Masonry is to be the builder of each man’s unseen temple of life.

Fiction. Translated from the Italian by Joachim Neugroschel. "Set during WW II, this is the first novel to appear in English by the celebrated Italian author of Words in Commotion and Other Stories. The narrator, an outlaw, takes refuge in an odd mountain manor occupied by an elderly nobleman and his two ferocious wolfhounds. The renegade's curiosity is awakened when he sees a turn-of-the-century painting of an alluring woman, and hears 'faint breathing' in his room at night and suspiciously light footsteps on a staircase. Ignoring the wishes of his host, he explores what he perceives to be a ghostly presence in the mansion. This riveting tale packs multiple surprises, with piercingly nightmarish imagery and intense, lonely characters tormented by private passions and obsessions. Landolfi (1908-79) masterfully evokes mood by engaging the senses: 'By now, it was the dead of night; a stiff, wet wind had risen, increasing the havoc that the dampness had wrought on me.... All around me, I heard the huge trees twisting and soughing furiously'"--Publishers Weekly.

Carmen Boullosa is one of Mexico's most acclaimed young writers, and Leaving Tabasco tells of the coming-of-age of Delmira Ulloa, raised in an all-female home in Agustini, in the Mexican province of Tabasco. The Washington Post Book World wrote, "We happily share with [Delmira] ... her life, including the infinitely charming town she inhabits [and] her grandmother's fantastic imagination." In Agustini it is not unusual to see your grandmother float above the bed when she sleeps, or to purchase torrential rains at a traveling fair, or to watch your family's elderly serving woman develop stigmata, then disappear completely, to be canonized as a local saint. As Delmira becomes a woman she will search for her missing father, and will make a choice that will force her to leave home forever. Brimming with the spirit of its irrepressible heroine, Leaving Tabasco is a story of great charm and depth that will remain in its readers' hearts for a long time. "Carmen Boullosa ... immerses us once again in her wickedly funny and imaginative world." -- Dolores Prida, Latina "To flee Agustini is to leave not just a town but the viscerally primal dreamscape it represents." -- Sandra Tsing Loh, The New York Times Book Review "A vibrant coming-of-age tale ... Boullosa [is] a master.... Each chapter is an adventure." -- Monica L. Williams, The Boston Globe
