"At the turn of the 20th Century, the great cruise liner Virginia shuttles back and forth across the Atlantic Ocean, transporting passengers from old Europe to the New World. When an abandoned baby is found on board the sailors christen Novecento -- 1900. The child is destined to a strange fate. Novecento will never leave the ship as long as he lives, yet he becomes the greatest jazz musician the world would never know. He only knows his music, which has a magical effect on everyone who hears. For six years before World War II, Tim Tooney played trumpet with him and Novecento gave him his story ... Adapted for film in The Legend of 1900, this stage adaptation presented as a monologue, is a beautiful piece of theatre."--Publisher

"After celebrated author Jasper Gwyn suddenly and publicly announces that he will never write another book, he embarks on a strange new career path as a "copyist," holding thirty-day sittings in a meticulously appointed room and producing, at the end, brief but profoundly rich portraits in prose. The surprising, beautiful, and even frightening results are received with rapture by their subjects--among them Gwyn's devoted assistant, Rebecca; a beautiful fabric importer; a landscape painter; Gwyn's own literary agent; two wealthy newlyweds; a tailor to the Queen; and a very dangerous nineteen-year-old."--Page 4 of cover

"Si tratta di tre racconti, indipendenti tra loro ma legati da un unico filo conduttore. Le tre storie si sfiorano tra loro in maniera quasi impercettibile, eppure dal flebile punto di contatto nasce un legame profondo, come avviene per i protagonisti della singola vicenda. Il vissuto della narrazione si svolge sempre all'alba e i protagonisti sono due sconosciuti, che in seguito ad un incontro fortuito si raccontano e si rivelano, instaurando tra di loro un legame umano in grado di svelare all'altro il loro io più profondo in pochi attimi, con poche parole. Tutti i personaggi presenti nel romanzo hanno lasciato qualcosa di importante nel loro passato e hanno dovuto ricominciare. Alessandro Baricco esplora la vita e le relazioni umane attraverso le storie degli uomini e delle donne che popolano Tre volte all'alba"--Publisher
