In the tradition of Memoirs of a Geisha and The Piano Teacher, a heart-wrenching debut novel of family, forgiveness, and the exquisite pain of love When Amaterasu Takahashi opens the door of her Philadelphia home to a badly scarred man claiming to be her grandson, she doesn’t believe him. Her grandson and her daughter, Yuko, perished nearly forty years ago during the bombing of Nagasaki. But the man carries with him a collection of sealed private letters that open a Pandora’s Box of family secrets Ama had sworn to leave behind when she fled Japan. She is forced to confront her memories of the years before the war: of the daughter she tried too hard to protect and the love affair that would drive them apart, and even further back, to the long, sake-pouring nights at a hostess bar where Ama first learned that a soft heart was a dangerous thing. Will Ama allow herself to believe in a miracle?

Une île, un siècle d'amours, de drames, de petits prodiges et de grands miracles. Au large de la Sicile, sur l'île de Castellamare, caillou fertile bercé par le sirocco et les légendes locales, Amedeo Esposito peut enfin poser ses valises. Élevé à l'orphelinat de Florence, ce médecin a un don pour le bonheur. Or, l'île lui réserve bien des surprises. À commencer par l'amour : partagé entre deux femmes, Amedeo fait le choix de bâtir avec l'une. Et qu'importe si l'abandon de l'autre lui coûte sa réputation et son titre de médecin ; avec celle qu'il épouse et les quatre enfants qu'elle lui donne – dont Maria-Grazia, la rescapée, la prunelle de ses yeux –, Amedeo restaure une vieille bâtisse surplombant l'océan et rouvre le café qu'elle abritait. C'est ici, dans la Maison au bord de la nuit, sur fond de guerre ou de paix, de crise ou de prospérité, que trois générations d'Esposito vont vivre, mourir, aimer, se déchirer, s'effondrer et se relever, sous le regard de la sainte patronne locale, Sant'Agata, toujours prompte à réaliser quelques miracles... Dans cette saga familiale qui témoigne d'une maîtrise romanesque rare, Catherine Banner donne vie à une constellation de personnages inoubliables.

"I'm a fabulist by trade," warns Gabriel Noone, a late-night radio storyteller, as he begins to untangle the skeins of his tumultuous life: his crumbling ten-year love affair, his disaffection from his Southern father, his longtime weakness for ignoring reality. Gabriel's most sympathetic listener is Pete Lomax, a thirteen-year-old fan in Wisconsin whose own horrific past has left him wise and generous beyond his years. But when this virtual father-son relationship is rocked by doubt, a desperate search for the truth ensues. Welcome to the complex, vertiginous world of The Night Listener.

A New Translation From The French By Marion Wiesel Night is Elie Wiesel's masterpiece, a candid, horrific, and deeply poignant autobiographical account of his survival as a teenager in the Nazi death camps. This new translation by Marion Wiesel, Elie's wife and frequent translator, presents this seminal memoir in the language and spirit truest to the author's original intent. And in a substantive new preface, Elie reflects on the enduring importance of Night and his lifelong, passionate dedication to ensuring that the world never forgets man's capacity for inhumanity to man. Night offers much more than a litany of the daily terrors, everyday perversions, and rampant sadism at Auschwitz and Buchenwald; it also eloquently addresses many of the philosophical as well as personal questions implicit in any serious consideration of what the Holocaust was, what it meant, and what its legacy is and will be.

When it was published in 1932, this revolutionary first fiction redefined the art of the novel with its black humor, its nihilism, and its irreverent, explosive writing style, and made Louis-Ferdinand Celine one of France's--and literature's--most important 20th-century writers. The picaresque adventures of Bardamu, the sarcastic and brilliant antihero of Journey to the End of the Night move from the battlefields of World War I (complete with buffoonish officers and cowardly soldiers), to French West Africa, the United States, and back to France in a style of prose that's lyrical, hallucinatory, and hilariously scathing toward nearly everybody and everything. Yet, beneath it all one can detect a gentle core of idealism.
