The god of carnage by Yasmina Reza( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in Italian and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What happens when two sets of parents meet up do deal with the unruly behavior of their children? A calm and rational debate between grown-ups about the need to teach kids how to behave properly? Or a hysterical night of name-calling, tantrums and tears before bedtime? Boys will be boys, but adults are usually worse-- much worse."--Page 4 of cover

Maigret et la jeune morte by Georges Simenon( Book )

3 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in Italian and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Maigret and his fellow inspector Lognon find themselves trying to out-manoeuver each other when they investigate the case of a mysterious young woman whose new life in Paris is tragically cut short. Maigret wouldn't have admitted that what intrigued him most was the victim's face. All he had seen of it so far was one profile. Was it the bruises that gave her that sullen air? She looked like a bad-tempered little girl. Her combed-back brown hair was very smooth but naturally wavy. The rain had diluted her make-up a little and, instead of making her older or uglier, it made her younger and more appealing

Leo Africanus by Amin Maalouf( Book )

3 editions published between 1986 and 2002 in Italian and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: "I, Hasan the son of Muhammad the weigh-master, I, Jean-Leon de Medici, circumcised at the hand of a barber and baptized at the hand of a pope, I am now called the African, but I am not from Africa, nor from Europe, nor from Arabia. I am also called the Granadan, the Fassi, the Zayyati, but I come from no country, from no city, no tribe. I am the son of the road; my country is the caravan, my life the most unexpected of voyages." Thus wrote Leo Africanus, in his fortieth year, in this imaginary autobiography of the famous geographer, adventurer, and scholar Hasan al-Wazzan, who was born in Granada in 1488. His family fled the Inquisition and took him to the city of Fez, in North Africa. Hasan became an itinerant merchant, and made many journeys to the East, journeys rich in adventure and observation. He was captured by a Sicilian pirate and taken back to Rome as a gift to Pope Leo X, who baptized him Johannes Leo. While in Rome, he wrote the first trilingual dictionary (Latin, Arabic and Hebrew), as well as his celebrated Description of Africa, for which he is still remembered as Leo Africanus

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)
