Fox and Chick don't always agree. But Fox and Chick are always friends. With sly humor and companionable warmth, Sergio Ruzzier deftly captures the adventures of these two seemingly opposite friends.

La filosofia di Evaristo Gallego, campione del mondo di pugilato, è molto semplice. Lui, il «re della festa», sa che tutto è possibile, basta sognarlo. Per questo vince, cade e si rialza, in un eterno match contro l'avversario più temibile: le forze oscure che stanno dentro di noi. In dodici capitoli, tanti quanti sono i round di un incontro di boxe, Luca Delli Carri racconta la storia di quest’uomo e di chi gli sta intorno: la lunatica fidanzata Anouchka, il vecchio allenatore, il manager, i colleghi. E racconta anche se stesso, un io narrante di cui lentamente si rivela la personalità. Da Milano, dove è nato e cresciuto e dove disputa il match per il campionato del mondo, Evaristo vola in Germania dopo aver attraversato la prima parabola depressiva che lo porterà, in poco più di un anno, a perdere la compagna, l'allenatore, la fiducia in se stesso e il titolo. Si ritira in provincia per ricominciare tutto daccapo e poi in Messico affronta il primo avversario dopo la sconfitta. Vincerà è avrà l'opportunità di combattere nuovamente per la corona mondiale. Cercando di ricucire gli strappi e le vicende tormentate della sua vita privata (l'alcool, il ritiro della patente, le difficoltà economiche, le cattive amicizie, i litigi con l’ex moglie che complicano i rapporti con la figlia), raggiunge il massimo della forma, e quando sale sul ring in Polonia per riprendersi il titolo ha negli occhi la stessa voglia di vincere che aveva a Milano. E sa che da incontri come quello, che ti chiedono di combattere fino alla fine, non si può che uscire, quale che sia il verdetto, inevitabilmente vincenti. Per scrivere questo fluviale, incalzante romanzo, Delli Carri ha trascorso due anni e mezzo in una colonia di pugili professionisti. È entrato nelle palestre e ha vissuto i ritiri e gli allenamenti, ha condiviso traumi e momenti di esaltazione, ha descritto riti, amicizie, amori, ha conosciuto la sporcizia del sottomondo che circonda la boxe. Ha raccolto una mole enorme di materiale e se n’è servito per comporre un libro intenso e toccante che ha il ritmo delle nostre giornate. Dove il pugilato, in tutta la sua esaltante crudeltà, diventa sintesi della vita. «Nessun altro soggetto è, per lo scrittore, intensamente personale come la boxe». Joyce Carol Oates «Quando sarò vecchio non dirò: se avessi fatto così, se avessi fatto cosà. No. Io ho fatto di tutto per riuscire. E ne ho fatte di cotte e di crude. Ne ho combinate talmente tante che uno normale, per fare ciò che ho fatto io in quarant’anni, dovrebbe vivere tre vite. E sai perché l’ho fatto? Perché la vita in certi momenti è una merda, ma vale sempre la pena di essere vissuta».

Suite Française is both a brilliant novel of wartime and an extraordinary historical document. An unmatched evocation of the exodus from Paris after the German invasion of 1940, and of life under the Nazi occupation, it was written by the esteemed French novelist Irène Némirovsky as events unfolded around her. This haunting masterpiece has been hailed by European critics as a War and Peace for the Second World War. Though she conceived the book as a five-part work (based on the form of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony), Irène Némirovsky was able to write only the first two parts, Storm in June and Dolce, before she was arrested in July 1942. She died in Auschwitz the following month. The manuscript was saved by her young daughter Denise; it was only decades later that Denise learned that what she had imagined was her mother’s journal was in fact an invaluable work of art. Storm in June takes place in the tumult of the evacuation from Paris in 1940, just before the arrival of the invading German army. It moves vividly between different levels of society–from the wealthy Péricand family, whose servants pack up their possessions for them, to a group of orphans from the 16th arrondissement escaping in a military truck. Némirovsky’s immense canvas includes deserting soldiers and terrified secretaries, cynical bank directors and hapless priests, egotistical writers and hardscrabble prostitutes–all thrown together in a chaotic attempt to escape the capital. Moving between them chapter by chapter, this thrilling novel describes a journey hampered and in some cases abandoned because of confusion, shelling, rumour, lack of supplies, bad luck and ordinary human weakness. Cars break down or are stolen; relatives are forgotten; friends are divided; but there are also moments of love and charity. Throughout, whether depicting saintly forbearance or the basest selfishness, Storm in June neither sweetens nor demonizes its characters; unsentimentally, with stunning perceptiveness, Némirovsky shows the complexities that mean no-one is simply a hero or villain. The second volume, Dolce, is set in the German-occupied village of Bussy. Again, Némirovsky switches seamlessly between social strata, from tenant farmers to the local aristocracy. The focus, however, is on the delicate, secret love affair between a German soldier and the French woman in whose house he has been billeted; the passion, doubts and deceits of their burgeoning relationship echo the complex mixture of hostility and acceptance felt by the occupied community as a whole. Némirovsky is amazingly sensitive in her depiction of changing, often contradictory emotions, but her attention to the personal is matched by her sharp-eyed discussion of small-town life and the politics of occupation. In this myth-dissolving book, the French villagers see the Germans as oppressive warriors, but also as handsome young men, and occupation does nothing to remedy the condescension and envy that bedevil relations between rich and poor. Quite apart from the astonishing story of its survival, Suite Française is a novel of genius and lasting artistic value. Subtle, often fiercely ironic, and deeply compassionate, it is both a piercing record of its time and a humane, profoundly moving novel. From the Hardcover edition.

A paradigm-shifting diet book that explains why one-size-fits-all diets don't work and helps readers customize their diet to lose weight and improve health. There are certain things we take as universal truths when it comes to dieting and health: kale is good; ice cream is bad. Until now. When Drs. Segal and Elinav published their groundbreaking research on personalized nutrition, it created a media frenzy. They had proved that individuals react differently to the same foods-a food that might be healthy for one person is unhealthy for another. In one stroke, they made all universal diet programs obsolete. THE PERSONALIZED DIET helps readers understand the fascinating science behind their work, gives them the tools to create an individualized diet and lifestyle plan (based on their reactions to favorite foods) and puts them on the path to losing weight, feeling good, and preventing disease by eating in the way that's right for them.

The Festival Of Insignificance

Casting light on the most serious of problems and at the same time saying not one serious sentence; being fascinated by the reality of the contemporary world and at the same time completely avoiding realism—that's The Festival of Insignificance. Readers who know Kundera's earlier books know that the wish to incorporate an element of the "unserious" in a novel is not at all unexpected of him. In Immortality, Goethe and Hemingway stroll through several chapters together, talking and laughing. And in Slowness, Vera, the author's wife, says to her husband, "You've often told me you meant to write a book one day that would have not a single serious word in it . . . I warn you: watch out. Your enemies are lying in wait." Now, far from watching out, Kundera is finally and fully realizing his old aesthetic dream in this novel, which we may easily view as a summation of his whole work. A strange sort of summation. Strange sort of epilogue. Strange sort of laughter, inspired by our time, which is comical because it has lost all sense of humor. What more can we say? Nothing. Just read. The Franco-Czech novelist Milan Kundera was born in Brno and has lived in France, his second homeland, since 1975. He is the author of the novels The Joke, Life Is Elsewhere, Farewell Waltz, The Book of Laughter and Forgetting, The Unbearable Lightness of Being, and Immortality, and the short story collection Laughable Loves—all originally in Czech. His more recent novels, Slowness, Identity, and Ignorance, as well as his nonfiction works, The Art of the Novel, Testaments Betrayed, The Curtain, and Encounter, were originally written in French.
