    A Handbook for Rebel Girls: Discovering Your Changing Body

    The age of pubescence, as we know, begins ever earlier and brings with it physical and emotional upheavals that affect girls increasingly early in their lives. This “handbook for rebel girls” is a sort of instruction manual for puberty. Through introductory boxes, information and practical advice, it helps young readers feel less alone and unprepared for the sudden transformation of their bodies and the discovery of their sexuality. All linked by an underlying thread: freedom. Freedom to choose whether to live this period serenely or to express all one’s discomfort, and to recognise oneself as of one gender or another. Above all, the freedom to say “no”. The subject of consent – which has been rather neglected until now with adolescents – is treated naturally but clearly, stressing that it is a right to be acquired in a period packed with fleeting moments. Otherwise, as the book itself says: “Don’t worry, give your body time to find its own equilibrium, and trust it: it knows exactly what the final goal is and it knows how to get there!”

    And still it bleeds

    Paolo Nori still vividly remembers the moment when, as a boy, he discovered Fyodor Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment. He remembers how amazed he was, and how it sent the blood coursing through his veins: it was an authentic epiphany. A wound opened within him that day, and decades later it still bleeds. Nori's novel is a love letter not just to Dostoevsky but to all Russian literature of the nineteenth century – since there was none before Pushkin. It simply did not exist. In a very engaging way, he tells us the story of Dostoevsky's life and works, but also of his relationships with the other great writers of his day. With authors such as Pushkin, Gogol, Turgenev, Tolstoy and many others, and he shares with us the greatest passion of his life, which led him to study Russian and then to teach it and become its translator. His novel is not a linear biography, for it is partly an essay, a "book that thinks it’s a novel" and he also speaks to us about his own personal relationship with the books of the great Russian writer, reminding us why Dostoevsky is still worth reading - and rereading - today. And the book attempts to answer Paolo Nori's own personal question: why does it still bleed?

    Les riches heures de Jacominus Gainsborough

    She is one of the best-known and best-loved French illustrators, while he is a little bunny, delightful and a bit of a philosopher, who comes into the world “with a tumble and a weird paw”. The life of Jacominus Gainsborough is that of someone who has managed to take all life’s happy moments and has lined them up, one next to the other: moments of autumn leaves falling in the park, of rain, of low tide. A tumble, a farewell at the dock, a morning’s greeting in a stone garden. A picnic, an excursion, and the cool shade of an almond tree. That’s it. A life. His. Simple yet moving. A splendid illustrated book that – as in life and in the memory of those who have lived it – contains details like the snapshots in a family album that bring back memories, alternating with much broader visions of the protagonist’s existence. A little challenge for the reader? On every page, the author always portrays all thirty-four characters who accompany our adorable little bunny. Can you find them all?

    The happiness of others

    Clotilde has lived a complicated life and her past is full of ghosts that assail her, spirits that return to the surface, bringing unhealed wounds to light. After a childhood marked by the tragic death of her brother Emmanuel – which she blames on her mother – she grows up in the Home of the Timid, a shelter home on a hill run by Madame and the General. She lives there until she reaches adulthood, when decides to go off and discover the world. Years later, Chloe moves to Venice, where she begins studying art and meets Professor T, who teaches the aesthetics of shadows. She finds great affinity in his words and in the end the two get to know each other, walking silently through the alleyways and squares of Venice, as kindred spirits who see their own darkness reflected in the other. A melancholic, nostalgic novel, which attempts to reconstruct the life of the protagonist, starting from fragments of her memories, as if restoring a temple that has been shattered by a catastrophe with the original materials – an anastylosis, as the protagonist declares in the opening pages of the book, in which she uses a language filled with references to Greek antiquity to narrate this modern, shattered tragedy.
