Carmela Scotti tells us about a story that involves a mother and daughterand the difficulty of becoming an adult when one has not even learned to be a child. Our best tells of a difficult bond between a little girl and her mother, of a stolen childhood from which to build the identity of an adult, and of the loss of a father. Scotti offers us a novel linked to the power and pitfalls of the memory and gods memories, on how “facts” and “truth” almost never coincide and how, right in the groove between the two, a future can blossom.

Hunger for air by Daniele Mencarelli
From January 17, 2023Mencarelli will tell us about Peter Borzacchitraveling with his son Jacopo, and their automotive misfortune in the middle of nowhere, which will take them to the village of Sant’Anna del Sannio. Time seems to have stopped in the town and there is no possible future nearby, a fate shared with many small towns in the Italian province. To help Agata, the lady who will give hospitality to the two unfortunates, is in the bar that she manages Gaia, with a beautiful smile that does justice to its name. In this novel, together with the theme of the family, there is also that of lack of love, of human feelings that still try to resist in this society.
The second floor by Ritanna Armeni | Books coming out January 2023
This book by Ritanna Armeni takes us back in time, precisely during the Second World War, in a suburban Roman convent where Franciscan women live. In this already tragic context, Sister Ignatia and her sisters find themselves in a surreal situation: if on the ground floor of their convent they host a young German nurse, on the upper floors they hide Jewish families instead, in the hope of saving them from deportation after miraculously surviving the roundup of the Rome ghetto. A story that leaves you breathless, and that will probably keep us all glued to the pages starting from its release on January 10, 2023.
