Uno scampolo di paradiso

Settimo is a suburb of Turin, Italy, where dwellers have everything they need. But over time, things can turn out quite differently. Why? An elderly surveyor, one of those who actually helped build a part of modern-day Italy, recounts the story of his houses. Those of the first immigrants coming from Veneto (a region of Venice), they wanted their own detached house and so they built it by themselves during their free time. The surveyor's story is interlaced with one of an old priest. Born in 1910, he tells us about this wave of immigration that forged the city we know today. He speaks of his wishes as a youth as well of his contemporary fears. He talks about his amazement facing this world he has seen growing up, a world that he no longer recognises. Every story leads to another, such as the tale of the engineer who built in Settimo one of the biggest purification plants in Europe. There are other stories still; the nine-month pregnant Pilates instructor, the young farmer who raises one-hundreds and twenty cows in the very heart of the industrial suburb, and the music teacher who founded the "Sette Torri" chorus, a group keen on sacred polyphony that helps assist a young pop-rock musician live out his big moment at the San Remo Festival.

Invasions on Hickory Road : a comedy of the hidden realities / Jim Delay

by:Delay, Jim

This is what I think is happening. -Something is coming to take away everything I have. -I don't have any idea what it will look like. -It may already be here. Invasions on Hickory Road is a mystical yet insightfully comic story of dark intrusions that come to a sunny suburban neighborhood. When the families on Hickory Road learn about a home invasion in the next town, their first frightened impulse is to arm themselves against outside attackers. What they don't realize is that invasions can come from inside their neighborhood as well as from outside, and that they are already endangered by the unknown secrets of Hickory Road itself. Most dangerous of all: in the basement of the empty house at number 16 a trapdoor opens down into a labyrinthine series of tunnels that lead to - nobody knows where or what. Written by award winning humorist Jim Delay, Invasions on Hickory Road merges approaching menace with the hilarious imperfections of unpredictable characters. -- Amazon.

Baby, baby

by:Ephron, Hallie

"It all started with the yard sale. Ivy was eight months and one week pregnant when she insisted that she and her husband, David, clean out the junk they'd inherited with the old Victorian house they'd bought three years before. Call it nesting, call it nerves she just wanted it all gone: the old electrical fixtures, the boxes of National Geographies from the 1960s, the four black wool greatcoats." "Neither she nor David recognized the woman at first. But it turned out that the customer asking about the lime-green glass swan dish - the woman who looked just about as pregnant as Ivy - was none other than Melinda White, a former high school classmate of David and Ivy's. When Melinda was a child she used to play in their new house, she explained. It looked like they'd been doing some work. Would it be all right if she took a look around? David took Melinda inside. And she never came out."
