Una Cenerentola a Manhattan by Felicia Kingsley
"Una retelling moderno e mai banale. Super scorrevole ed impossibile da mettere giù se non dopo averlo terminato!

La Kingsley ritorna in libreria con una scrittura più matura, più spinta ma sempre con la sua ironia che ormai la contraddistingue." Read more of this review »
Irene and 11 other people liked Nomadic Reader's review of Revolutionary Road:
Revolutionary Road by Richard Yates
"Frank e April Wheeler non sono come le altre coppie. D'accordo, potranno aver rinunciato al loro appartamento bohémien di New York per trasferirsi in un'anonima villetta di periferia; potranno aver messo da parte le loro ambizioni in favore di una..." Read more of this review »

Haruki Murakami
“I closed my eyes and listened carefully for the descendants of Sputnik, even now circling the earth, gravity their only tie to the planet. Lonely metal souls in the unimpeded darkness of space, they meet, pass each other, and part, never to meet again. No words passing between them. No promises to keep.”
Haruki Murakami, Sputnik Sweetheart

Cesare Pavese
“Leggendo non cerchiamo idee nuove, ma pensieri già da noi pensati, che acquistano sulla pagina un suggello di conferma.”
Cesare Pavese

Gore Vidal
“How marvelous books are, crossing worlds and centuries, defeating ignorance and, finally, cruel time itself.”
Gore Vidal, Julian

Haruki Murakami
“Wasn't it better if they kept this desire to see each other hidden within them, and never actually got together? That way, there would always be hope in their hearts. That hope would be a small, yet vital flame that warmed them to their core-- a tiny flame to cup one's hands around and protect from the wind, a flame that the violent winds of reality might easily extinguish.”
Haruki Murakami, 1Q84

Cesare Pavese
“Traveling is a brutality. It forces you to trust strangers and to lose sight of all that familiar comfort of home and friends.
You are constantly off balance. Nothing is yours except the essential things: air, sleep, dreams, sea, the sky - all things tending towards the eternal or what we imagine of it.”
Cesare Pavese
