La noche aprieta la pulpa de los frutos, despierta el deseo de los insectos, calma la inquietud de las aves, refresca la piel de los reptiles, ordena danzar a las luciérnagas. Si.

Dopo essere capitata in una macchia di petrolio nelle acque del mare del Nord, la gabbiana Kengah atterra in fin di vita sul balcone del gatto Zorba, al quale strappa tre promesse solenni: di non mangiare l'uovo che lei sta per deporre, di averne cura e di insegnare a volare al piccolo che nascerà. Così, alla morte di Kengah, Zorba cova l'uovo e, quando si schiude, accoglie la neonata gabbianella nella buffa e affiatata comunità felina del porto di Amburgo. Ma come può un gatto insegnare a volare? Per mantenere la terza promessa, Zorba dovrà ricorrere all'aiuto di tutti, anche a quello di un uomo. In una storia che ha la grazia di una fiaba e la forza di una parabola, il grande scrittore cileno tocca i temi a lui più cari: l'amore per la natura, la generosità disinteressata e la solidarietà, anche fra <<diversi>>

After having fought a thousand battles, many with Salvador Allende, Juan Belmonte has laid down his arms and lives in a case in front of the sea in the extreme south of Chile, along with some incorruptible friend and his full torture suffered during the dictatorship. To that twilight and disenchanted Belmonte, the past appears in the form of a commission. The Russian secret services, who know their curriculum of expert in underground war and infallible sniper, need it. They know of a plan concocted by a group of nostalgic Cossacks, determined to free Miguel Krassnoff from jail, a Pinochet torturer convicted of crimes against human rights. And they want Belmonte, who has a very good reason, strictly personal, to hate the "Cossack", discover them. From Trotsky's Russia to Pinochet's Chile, from Nazi Germany to today's Patagonia, Luis Sepúlveda's nine novel traverses the history of the 20th century until it reaches the dramatic pages where Belmonte will live his most tense and decisive moments

Le lumache che vivono nel prato chiamato Paese del Dente di Leone, sotto la frondosa pianta del calicanto, sono abituate a condurre una vita lenta e silenziosa, a nascondersi dallo sguardo avido degli altri animali, e a chiamarsi tra loro semplicemente <<lumaca>>. Una di loro, però, trova ingiusto non avere un nome, e soprattutto è curiosa di scoprire le ragioni della lentezza. Per questo, nonostante la disapprovazione delle compagne, intraprende un viaggio che la porterà a conoscere un gufo malinconico e una saggia tartaruga, a comprendere il valore della memoria e la vera natura del coraggio, e a guidare le compagne in un'avventura ardita verso la libertà. Un nuovo indimenticabile personaggio entra nella galleria del grande scrittore cileno. Un'altra storia memorabile che insegna a riscoprire il senso perduto del tempo
