Edizione specifica per kindle con 67 illustrazioni, mappa del viaggio e indice navigabile. Tre uomini in barca (senza contare il cane) o, in altre traduzioni, Tre uomini in barca (per non parlar del cane) oppure Tre uomini in barca (per tacer del cane) è un romanzo di Jerome K. Jerome del 1889, è un romanzo umoristico ed considerato uno dei più importanti classici della letteratura inglese. Il romanzo narra la avventure di tre amici Jerome, Harris (l'uomo più prosaico della terra) e George (che «va a dormire in una banca tutti i giorni dalle 10 alle 16, tranne il sabato che lo cacciano fuori alle 14»), che assieme al fedele cane Montmorency, viaggiano per giorni sulla loro imbarcazione, risalendo la corrente del fiume Tamigi, scorrendo lungo le campagne inglesi, e vivendo sempre nuove e inattese avventure che strappano risate di continuo. Il viaggio è costellato da una serie di gag comiche sulle gioie e sui dolori della vita in barca (quali le peripezie sul trasporto delle vivande, la costruzione della tenda sulla barca, i pericoli di cadute in acqua), unite a divertenti divagazioni che costituiscono storie a sé stanti, nel miglior stile dello humour inglese: celeberrimo è il racconto dello zio Podger alle prese con un quadro da appendere. Il tutto condito da descrizioni realistiche delle regioni attraversate dalla simpatica brigata e brevi notazioni di filosofia per non addetti ai lavori. La traduzione si basa sull'edizione del 1922 curata da Silvio Spaventa Filippi, ma è stata aggiornata all'italiano corrente dal redattore preservando lo stile dell'epoca in cui è stato scritto. Il testo è completo e si riferisce all'edizione del 1899 ed è arricchito da 67disegni originali di A. Frederics e della mappa del viaggio. Jerome K. Jerome (Walsall, 2 maggio 1859 – Northampton, 14 giugno 1927) è stato uno scrittore, giornalista e umorista britannico. È ritenuto tra i maggiori scrittori umoristici inglesi. Lontano dai modi della farsa, del facile gioco di parole, dell'allusione oscena, il suo umorismo scaturiva anche dall'osservazione dalle situazioni più comuni e quotidiane. § Se sei interessato ad imparare o migliorare il tuo inglese o il tuo italiano, cerca l'edizione bilingue curata da Wirton Arvel.

Little Novels of Sicily "Novelle Rusticane" Giovanni Verga translated by D. H. Lawrence Giovanni Verga, the Sicilian novelist and playwright, is surely the greatest writer of Italian fiction, after Manzoni. Verga was born in Catania, Sicily, in 1840, and died in the same city, at the age of eighty-two, in January, 1922. As a young man he left Sicily to work at literature and mingle with society in Florence and Milan, and these two cities, especially the latter, claim a large share of his mature years. He came back, however, to his beloved Sicily, to Catania, the seaport under Etna, to be once more Sicilian of the Sicilians and spend his long declining years in his own place. The first period of his literary activity was taken up with "Society" and elegant love. In this phase he wrote the novels Eros, Eva, Tigre Reale, Il Marito di Elena, real Italian novels of love, intrigue and "elegance": a little tiresome, but with their own depth. His fame, however, rests on his Sicilian works, the two novels: I Malavoglia and Mastro-Don Gesualdo, and the various volumes of short sketches, Vita dei Campi (Cavalleria Rusticana), Novelle Rusticane, and Vagabondaggio, and then the earlier work Storia di Una Capinera, a slight volume of letters between two school-girls, somewhat sentimental and once very popular. The libretto of Cavalleria Rusticana, the well-known opera, was drawn from the first of the sketches in the volume Vita dei Campi. As a man, Verga never courted popularity, any more than his work courts popularity. He kept apart from all publicity, proud in his privacy: so unlike D'Annunzio. Apparently he was never married.

The Adventures of Pinocchio is a novel for children by Italian author Carlo Collodi, written in Florence. It is about the mischievous adventures of Pinocchio an animated marionette, and his poor father, a woodcarver named Geppetto. It is considered a classic of children's literature. The Adventures of Pinocchio is a story about an animated puppet, a talking cricket, and boys who turn into donkeys and other fairy tale devices that would be familiar to a reader of Alice in Wonderland or the Brothers Grimm; in fact earlier in his career Collodi worked on a translation of Mother Goose. However, Pinocchio's world is not in a traditional fairy-tale world, instead containing the hard realities of the need for food, shelter, and the basic measures of daily life. The setting of the story is in fact the very real Tuscan area of Italy as a background. It was a unique literary melding of genres for its time. Pinocchio is also a novel of education, with values expressed through allegory.

In the tradition of Gillian Flynn, Tana French, and Ruth Rendell, this compelling and clever psychological thriller spins the harrowing tale of a mother’s obsessive search for her missing daughter. Jenny is a successful family doctor, the mother of three great teenagers, married to a celebrated neurosurgeon. But when her youngest child, fifteen-year-old Naomi, doesn’t come home after her school play, Jenny’s seemingly ideal life begins to crumble. The authorities launch a nationwide search with no success. Naomi has vanished, and her family is broken. As the months pass, the worst-case scenarios—kidnapping, murder—seem less plausible. The trail has gone cold. Yet for a desperate Jenny, the search has barely begun. More than a year after her daughter’s disappearance, she’s still digging for answers—and what she finds disturbs her. Everyone she’s trusted, everyone she thought she knew, has been keeping secrets, especially Naomi. Piecing together the traces her daughter left behind, Jenny discovers a very different Naomi from the girl she thought she’d raised.
