Ilaria Tuti's thriller debut explores a remote community in northern Italy--a place of secrets, eerie folktales, and primal instincts. In a quiet village surrounded by ancient woods and the imposing Italian Alps, a man is found naked with his eyes gouged out. It is the first in a string of gruesome murders. Superintendent Teresa Battaglia, a detective with a background in criminal profiling, is called to investigate. Battaglia is in her mid-sixties, her rank and expertise hard-won from decades of battling for respect in the male-dominated Italian police force. While she's not sure she trusts the young city inspector assigned to assist her, she sees right away that this is no ordinary case: buried deep in these mountains are whispers of a dark and dangerous history, possibly tied to a group of eight-year-old children toward whom the killer seems to gravitate. As Teresa inches closer to the truth, she must also confront the possibility that her body and mind, worn down by age and illness, may fail her before the chase is over.

Published here for the first time in English in a brilliant translation by the peerless Gregory Rabassa, The Discovery of America by the Turks is a whimsical Brazilian take on The Taming of the Shrew that will remind readers why Jorge Amado is to Portuguese-American literature what Jorge Luis Borges is to Spanish-American literature. It follows the adventures of two Arab immigrants-"Turks," as Brazilians call them-who arrive in the rough Brazilian frontier in 1903 and become involved in a merchant's farcical attempt to marry off his shrew of a daughter.

This book of parodied proverbs represents the first collection of such twisted or anti-proverbs in the English language. It contains over 3,000 texts based on 320 traditional Anglo-American proverbs. The twisted proverbs were located in dozens of books and articles on puns, one-liners, toasts, quotations, aphorisms, and graffiti. Many examples are also based on advertisements, caricatures, cartoons, comic strips, and headlines from magazines and newspapers. About 75 illustrations from the mass media are also included. While many of these humorous texts are based on mere puns and wordplay, there are also numerous satirical anti-proverbs that contain revealing social comments: Eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow they may recall your credit card. Marry in haste, and pay alimony at leisure. Taste makes waist. A split personality is the only case where two can live as cheaply as one. All work and no play makes you a valued employee. Where there's a will there's a loophole. The lawyer agrees with the doctor that the best things in life are fees. A condom is the mother of all prevention. Do unto others before they do unto you. Take care of your character and your reputation will take care of itself. If at first you don't succeed, you are fired.

Daniel Libeskind's iconic buildings around the world -- from the Jewish Museum in Berlin to the Imperial War Museum North in Manchester, the V&A 'Spiral' to the most symbolic rebuilding project ever: the World Trade Center -- have sparked vigorous debate, not only for the way they look but for the ideas they contain. These are ideas that are important for all of us, and this is the story of those ideas -- a memoir of Libeskind's own life experiences, and of the events of history that have informed them. It is a book about the adventure life can offer each of us if we seize it, and about how we can all harness positively the powerful forces of tragedy, memory and hope.

The Gift in the Heart of Language

The author offers a paradigm-shifting view of the structure of material and verbal communication, based on the mother-child experience and confirmed by recent research in infant psychology. This view justifies a relational epistemology that informs the material gift economy, as well as the structure of language itself. Provisioning economies give value to the receivers, and the circulation of gifts consolidates community. Understanding language as verbal gifting unites other orientations with reason, to liberate us from biopathic, patriarchal conceptions of humanity. Sketched against this background, Vaughan introduces a conception of monetized exchange as a gift-denying and expropriating psychological mechanism, which is an unintended collective by product of verbal communication.
