Estratto: ... Qua, qua, qua, qua; io sono medico, io guarisco la gente da tutti i mali e da tutte le pazzie, fuori che da quella d'amore. Trotona sbalordita da questo portento non veduto mai in vita sua, grido sagrando come un vetturino: --Affennenio! che bel pasticcio. Lo voglio per me. Qua, Viso-sudicio: quanto ne chiedi?--Il solito prezzo, --ella disse--dormire nella sala degli Echi, e nient'altro.--Sta bene; e ti voglio dar per giunta anche questa moneta--disse Trotona, fuor di se dall'allegrezza di avere avuto il pasticcio. Fiorina se ne va via ringraziando, tutta contenta per la speranza che questa volta il Re avrebbe sentita la sua voce. Appena venne la notte, ella si fece condurre nella sala degli Echi, colla passione che la struggeva, che il cameriere mantenesse la parola e che, invece di dare al Re il solito oppio, gli mettesse innanzi qualche altra bevanda da tenerlo desto; quando pote figurarsi che tutti dormissero, ella ricomincio i sui pietosi lamenti: --A quanto pericolo non sono io andata incontro, --ella diceva--per venirti a cercare, mentre tu mi fuggi e vuoi sposare Trotona! Che t'ho io fatto, crudele, per scordarti cosi i tuoi giuramenti? Rammentati almeno qualche volta della tua metamorfosi, del mio amore e dei nostri teneri colloquj!--Ella ripete questi colloquj a uno a uno, e con tanta fedelta di memoria, da far vedere che per lei non c'era altra cosa al mondo, che le fosse piu cara di questi ricordi. Il Re non dormiva punto, e sentiva cosi distintamente la voce di Fiorina e tutte le sue parole, che non sapeva raccapezzarsi da dove venissero: ma il suo cuore, teneramente commosso, gli fece ricordare.

A simple fairy tale meets bold, geometric art in this fresh, witty story from Japan. Once upon a time, a king and queen discover among their flowers a lovely and very tiny princess perched on a leaf. Overjoyed to have found a daughter, they fashion for her a single-feather bed and watch as she grows large enough to sleep in a ring box, a teacup, and a teddy bear s lap. But still the princess keeps growing and growing, until her head pokes through the top of even the tallest tower. Can the king figure out how to break the spell before the enormous tower crumbles and falls? With bright, stylized artwork and a vertical foldout befitting a "very "big princess, this whimsical follow-up to "The Tiny King "is sure to be a big hit."

Spider is gaunt, threadbare, unnerved by everything from his landlady to the smell of gas. He tells us his story in a storm of beautiful language that slowly reveals itself as a fiendishly layered construction of truth and illusion. With echoes of Beckett, Poe, and Paul Bowles, Spider is a tale of horror and madness, storytelling and skepticism, a novel whose dizzying style lays bare the deepest layers of subconscious terror.

Few albums in the canon of popular music have had the influence, resonance, and endurance of John Coltrane's 1965 classic A Love Supreme-a record that proved jazz was a fitting medium for spiritual exploration and for the expression of the sublime. Bringing the same fresh and engaging approach that characterized his critically acclaimed Kind of Blue: The Making of the Miles Davis Masterpiece, Ashley Kahn tells the story of the genesis, creation, and aftermath of this classic recording. Featuring interviews with more than one hundred musicians, producers, friends, and family members; unpublished interviews with Coltrane and bassist Jimmy Garrison; and scores of never-before-seen photographs, A Love Supreme balances biography, cultural context, and musical analysis in a passionate and revealing portrait.
