The Story of Don Juan


The decline and fall of the famous libertine. "The crazy life and courageous death of a man who loved women too much to want only one." Don Juan is a passionate lover of life and nearly 1,000 women. One night, the Commendatore of Calatrava catches him kissing his daughter, and challenges him to a duel. Don Juan wins the duel, which of course means that the Commendatore is slain-and so begins the end for the incorrigible seducer. Alessandro Baricco (b. 1958) is an Italian writer, director and performer whose work has become famous throughout Europe. He has been a music critic for La Repubblica and La Stampa , and his novels have been bestsellers in Italy and France. He has won, among other things, the prestigious Prix Medicis etranger and the Premio Viareggio. He is the founder of the creative writing school Scuola Holden (named after Holden Caulfield in The Catcher in the Rye), and editor of the Save the Story series.

In Other Words


National Best Seller From the best-selling author and Pulitzer Prize winner, a powerful nonfiction debut—an “honest, engaging, and very moving account of a writer searching for herself in words.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred) In Other Words is a revelation. It is at heart a love story—of a long and sometimes difficult courtship, and a passion that verges on obsession: that of a writer for another language. For Jhumpa Lahiri, that love was for Italian, which first captivated and capsized her during a trip to Florence after college. Although Lahiri studied Italian for many years afterward, true mastery always eluded her. Seeking full immersion, she decides to move to Rome with her family, for “a trial by fire, a sort of baptism” into a new language and world. There, she begins to read, and to write—initially in her journal—solely in Italian. In Other Words, an autobiographical work written in Italian, investigates the process of learning to express oneself in another language, and describes the journey of a writer seeking a new voice. Presented in a dual-language format, this is a wholly original book about exile, linguistic and otherwise, written with an intensity and clarity not seen since Vladimir Nabokov: a startling act of self-reflection and a provocative exploration of belonging and reinvention. From the Hardcover edition.

The Street Kids


"The Street Kids "is the most important novel by Italy's preeminent late-20th Century author and intellectual, Pier Paolo Pasolini. A powerful, groundbreaking contemporary classic, "The Street Kids"is now available in a new translation by Ann Goldstein, translator of Elena Ferrante's Neapolitan Novels. Pasolini's "The Street Kids"was heavily censored, criticized by professional critics, and lambasted by much of the general public upon its publication. But like many innovative works of art its undeniable force eventually led to it being universally acknowledged as a masterpiece. It is a moving tribute to an entire class of people in danger of being forgotten by art, by institutions, and by society at large. "The Street Kids "tells the story of Riccetto, a poor urchin who lives on the outskirts of Rome. Readers meet him at his first communion in 1944 during the German occupation of Italy. In the years that follow, drifting ever further from family and friends, Riccetto moves from petty theft to more elaborate cons and finally to prostitution. He is arrested and jailed after trying to steal some iron in order to buy his fianceean engagement ring. Pasolini's message of rebellion and transgression is as important today as it was in the 1960s and 1970s."
