Based on a remarkable true story, an unforgettable Somali girl risks her life on the migrant journey to Europe to run in the Olympic Games At eight years of age, Samia lives to run. She shares her dream with her best friend and neighbor, Ali, who appoints himself her "professional coach." Eight-year-old Ali trains her, times her, and pushes her to achieve her goals. For both children, Samia's running is the bright spot in their tumultuous life in Somalia. She is talented, brave, and determined to represent her country in the Olympic Games, just like her hero, the great Somali runner Mo Farah. For the next several years, Samia and Ali train at night in a deserted stadium as war rages and political tensions continue to escalate. Despite the lack of resources, despite the war, and despite all of the restrictions imposed on Somali women, Samia becomes a world-class runner. As a teenager, she is selected to represent her country at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. She finishes last in her heat at the Games, but the sight of the small, skinny woman in modest clothes running in the dust of athletes like Veronica Campbell-Brown brings the Olympic stadium to its feet. Samia sets her sights on the 2012 Games in London. Conditions in Somalia have worsened, and she must make the arduous migrant journey across Africa and the Mediterranean alone. Just like millions of refugees, Samia risks her life for the hope of a better future. Don't Tell Me You're Afraid is the unforgettable story of a courageous young woman, and it is also a remarkable window onto a global crisis.

“Catozzella è uno scrittore. Con questa materia sordida riesce a fare letteratura” Corrado Augias Samia è una ragazzina di Mogadiscio. Ha la corsa nel sangue. Ogni giorno divide i suoi sogni con Alì, che è amico del cuore, confidente e primo, appassionato allenatore. Mentre intorno, in Somalia, le armi parlano sempre più forte la lingua della sopraffazione, Samia guarda lontano, e avverte nelle sue gambe magre e velocissime un destino di riscatto per il paese martoriato e per le donne somale. Gli allenamenti notturni nello stadio deserto, per nascondersi dagli occhi accusatori degli integralisti, e le prime affermazioni la portano, a soli diciassette anni, a qualificarsi alle Olimpiadi di Pechino. Arriva ultima, ma diventa un simbolo per le donne musulmane in tutto il mondo. Il suo vero sogno, però, è vincere. L’appuntamento è con le Olimpiadi di Londra del 2012. Ma tutto diventa difficile. Gli integralisti prendono ancora più potere, Samia corre chiusa dentro un burqa. Rimanere lì, all’improvviso, non ha più senso. Una notte parte, a piedi, rincorrendo la libertà e il sogno di vincere le Olimpiadi. Sola, intraprende il Viaggio di ottomila chilometri, l’odissea dei migranti dall’Etiopia al Sudan e, attraverso il Sahara, alla Libia, per arrivare via mare in Italia. Giuseppe Catozzella per mesi è entrato dentro la vita reale di Samia, e l’ha reinventata in una voce dolcissima, scrivendo un romanzo memorabile.

Britannia, 1st century AD: a young Briton is deported by the Roman Army and sent to work in a quarry in Pompei, where he is given a Latin name, Verus. After the eruption of Vesuvius, he is transferred to Rome and ends up working on the site of the Flavian Amphitheatre. In fact the dream of stone and glory of the Emperor Vespasian is about to be inaugurated by his son Titus and the whole city is excitedly waiting for the promised one hundred days of games. One day the renowned gladiator instructor Decius arrives on the site and recruits Verus, together with another forced laborer from Gaul called Priscus, for his school of gladiators. The two youths also begin to attend the court of the emperor, who is impressed by the gladiator talents of them both, and the Briton ends up falling in love with Julia, the daughter of Titus. This is the beginning of a dangerous triangle that causes a rift in the relationship between the two gladiators. The two will come face to face again, however, in a final clash on the first of the hundred days of games for the inauguration of the Amphitheatre. Their combat will be unique in the history of Rome: because both, after having fought to the last drop of blood, will be victorious.

In 2005, hurricane rescue workers made a grisly discovery at one of the massive refrigerator "graveyards"—six female hands. Captain Patti O'Shay, a by-the-books cop, is assigned to the case. But with the evidence lost to time and the elements, the heinous incident goes unsolved. The perpetrator, known only as "The Handyman," remains at large. Two years later Patti is still haunted by her own personal tragedy—her husband and fellow police captain was murdered in the post-storm chaos. But when a female victim missing her right hand is unearthed, Patti prepares to return to The Handyman investigation. She is unprepared, however, for what she finds at the crime scene—the victim's bones beside her husband's police badge. Casting aside all the rules, Patti is fearless in her quest to find the truth…because if she isn't, she could become The Handyman's last known victim.

'No one writes a better crime novel than Charles Willeford' Elmore Leonard In a hot Florida summer, Sergeant Hoke Moseley's life is going to hell: his ex-wife just remarried, his teenage daughters want to quit school and his beat partner is eight months pregnant - and living in his house. A break seems long overdue, so Hoke decides to bail out, give up police work and watch the ocean roll. But things don't always work out. A handsome, cowboy-hatted psychopath is planning another armed robbery - one that will draw a retiree into a life of crime and leave half-a-dozen bystanders dead. It's a case right up Hoke's alley: weird enough to catch his attention, personal enough to make him mad, and twisted enough to make Hoke forget he no longer wants to be a cop.

With the moral stamina and intellectual pose of a twentieth-century Titan, this slightly built, duitful, unassuming chemist set out systematically to remember the German hell on earth, steadfastly to think it through, and then to render it comprehensible in lucid, unpretentious prose. He was profoundly in touch with the minutest workings of the most endearing human events and with the most contempible. What has survived in Levi's writing isn't just his memory of the unbearable, but also, in THE PERIODIC TABLE and THE WRENCH, his delight in what made the world exquisite to him. He was himself a "magically endearing man, the most delicately forceful enchanter I've ever known" - PHILIP ROTH
