No vacation for Maigret by Georges Simenon( Book )

3 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in Italian and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A local scandal intrudes on Maigret's seaside holiday in book twenty-eight of the new Penguin Maigret series. At what point in the day could the note have been slipped into his pocket, his left breast pocket? It was an ordinary sheet of glazed squared paper, probably torn out of an exercise book. The words were written in pencil, in a regular handwriting that looked to him like a woman's. For pity's sake, ask to see the patient in room 15. When Inspector Maigret's wife falls ill on their seaside holiday, a visit to the hospital leads him on an unexpected quest to find justice for a young girl

Dirty, drunk, unloved, and unloving, Hector Loursat has been a bitter recluse for eighteen long years -- ever since his wife abandoned him and their newborn child to run off with another man. Once a successful lawyer, Loursat now guzzles burgundy and buries himself in books, taking little notice of his teenage daughter or the odd things going on in his vast and ever-more-dilapidated mansion. But one night the sound of a gunshot penetrates the padded walls of Loursat's study, and he is forced to investigate. What he stumbles on is a murder. Soon Loursat discovers that his daughter and her friends have been leading a dangerous secret life. He finds himself strangely drawn to this group of young people, and when one of them is accused of the murder, he astonishes the world by taking up the young man's defense
Man, play, and games by Roger Caillois( Book )

7 editions published between 1981 and 2010 in Italian and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Play is "an occasion of pure waste: waste of time, energy, ingenuity, skill, and often of money." It is also an essential element of human social and spiritual development." "In this study, Roger Caillois defines play as a voluntary activity that occurs in a pure space, isolated and protected from the rest of life. Within limits set by rules that provide a level playing field, players move toward an unpredictable outcome by responding to their opponents' actions. Caillois qualifies types of games and ways of playing, from the improvisation characteristic of children's play to the disciplined pursuit of solutions to gratuitously difficult puzzles. He also examines the means by which games become part of daily life, ultimately giving cultures their most characteristic customs and institutions."--Jacket

Three bedrooms in Manhattan by Georges Simenon( Book )

7 editions published between 1998 and 2015 in Italian and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An actor, recently divorced, at loose ends in New York; a woman, no less lonely, perhaps even more desperate than the man: they meet by chance in an all-night diner and are drawn to each other on the spot. Roaming the city streets, hitting its late-night dives, dropping another coin into yet another jukebox, these two lost souls struggle to understand what it is that has brought them, almost in spite of themselves, together. They are driven from moment to moment, from bedroom to bedroom to improvise the most unexpected of love stories, a tale of suspense where risk alone offers salvation. Georges Simenon was the most popular and prolific of the twentieth century's great novelists. Three Bedrooms in Manhattan closely based on the story of his own meeting with his second wife & is his most passionate and revealing work"--Publisher's description

L'uso dei piaceri : storia della sessualità 2 by Michel Foucault( Book )

3 editions published between 1984 and 2002 in Italian and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Parlare di sessualità come di un'esperienza storicamente singolare ha richiesto di ricostruire i percorsi del 'soggetto desiderante', risalendo dall'epoca moderna fino all'Antichità classica. "L'uso dei piaceri", entra nel vivo della rappresentazione delle pratiche e delle teorie sessuali nella città greca, e dà così concreto avvio a un'opera storiografica dall'ambizione assolutamente unica: non più indagine parziale o settoriale sui problemi della sessualità, essa presenta globalmente la genealogia dell'esperienza più ignota, anche quando più esibita, della nostra cultura e della nostra storia, offrendoci al contempo una sorta di specchio delle radici più remote e cancellate della logica degli odierni comportamenti sessuali. (Alice)
