Genova 1990: Maria Viani sta eseguendo le analisi necessarie per il trapianto degli organi di un donatore, Massimo Ghini, entrato in coma per un colpo di arma da fuoco. Le forze dell’ordine hanno stabilito che si tratta di suicidio. Ma è davvero così? Sia l’ex moglie dell’uomo, scarcerato da poco dopo aver scontato una pena per appartenenza a bande armate, che il suo datore di lavoro e amico, non sembrano convinti di questa tesi. Anche Maria Viani, compilando un rapporto per il Ministero della Sanità, si imbatte in una strana coincidenza che le fa dubitare di questa presunta verità. Non le resta che tentare di convincere l’amico Sergio Cantini, tornato da poco a Genova in veste di commissario, a riaprire l’inchiesta su questa e altre morti. Riuscirà la nostra biologa a vederci chiaro o si farà confondere da un pregiudizio? Sullo sfondo di una Genova di periferia, dove una storia legata a un recente passato torna prepotentemente a galla, vecchi e nuovi personaggi intrecciano le loro storie con un fil rouge che le unisce e conduce verso un tragico epilogo.

Siamo nel 1992, l'anno delle celebrazioni colombiane. In una Genova invasa dai turisti e che ha subito un profondo restyling edilizio, Maria Viani, una biologa con la passione delle storie di delitti, vive la sua ennesima avventura. Durante una breve passeggiata, intrapresa per smaltire una cena in cui ha ecceduto nel bere, si trova davanti al cancello di una villa a Capo Santa Chiara. L'abitazione, chiaramente disabitata, costruita con ogni probabilità su progetto di Dino Coppedé, mostra ancora uno splendore che colpisce la fantasia di Maria. Quando Francesco, il marito, le confida che negli anni trenta Eugenia, la donna sposata in seconde nozze dal nonno, ha prestato servizio come cuoca in quella villa, e che proprio lì si è consumato un delitto, la curiosità la spinge a cercare di capire cosa sia successo veramente. Per farlo si dovrà districare tra i guai procurati dalla sua inguaribile curiosità e la ricostruzione degli avvenimenti che si sono svolti in un lontano passato su quella che veniva chiamata “quarta sponda” dell'Impero. Shamira, Yasmeen, Italo e tanti altri personaggi hanno popolato quel mondo che ormai non esiste più. Un funereo commissario, Damiano Flexi Gerardi ha indagato senza successo sul delitto, avvenuto nel 1938 a Genova, ma è a Bengasi che tutto è cominciato ed è lì che bisogna cercare la soluzione che è, al solito, inaspettata. Maria Teresa Valle nata a Varazze (SV), risiede attualmente a Genova. Sposata, ha due figli e due splendidi nipoti. Laureata in Scienze Biologiche ha lavorato per molti anni in qualità di Dirigente Biologa all’Ospedale San Martino di Genova.

The year is 1861. Hervé Joncour is a French merchant of silkworms, who combs the known world for their gemlike eggs. Then circumstances compel him to travel farther, beyond the edge of the known, to a country legendary for the quality of its silk and its hostility to foreigners: Japan. There Joncour meets a woman. They do not touch; they do not even speak. And he cannot read the note she sends him until he has returned to his own country. But in the moment he does, Joncour is possessed.

To Each His Own

This letter is your death sentence. To avenge what you have done you will die. But what has Manno the pharmacist done? Nothing that he can think of. The next day he and his hunting companion are both dead.The police investigation is inconclusive. However, a modest high school teacher with a literary bent has noticed a clue that, he believes, will allow him to trace the killer. Patiently, methodically, he begins to untangle a web of erotic intrigue and political calculation. But the results of his amateur sleuthing are unexpected--and tragic. To Each His Own is one of the masterworks of the great Sicilian novelist Leonardo Sciascia--a gripping and unconventional detective story that is also an anatomy of a society founded on secrets, lies, collusion, and violence.

A breathtakingly clear analysis that breaks down the root causes of today’s economic crisis “With unerring coherence and unequaled breadth of knowledge, Rick Wolff offers a rich and much needed corrective to the views of mainstream economists and pundits. It would be difficult to come away from this… with anything but an acute appreciation of what is needed to get us out of this mess.” —Stanley Aronowitz, Distinguished Professor of Sociology and Urban Education, City University of New York Capitalism Hits the Fan chronicles one economist’s growing alarm and insights as he watched, from 2005 onwards, the economic crisis build, burst, and then change the world. The argument here differs sharply from most other explanations offered by politicians, media commentators, and other academics. Step by step, Professor Wolff shows that deep economic structures—the relationship of wages to profits, of workers to boards of directors, and of debts to income—account for the crisis. The great change in the US economy since the 1970s, as employers stopped the historic rise in US workers’ real wages, set in motion the events that eventually broke the world economy. The crisis resulted from the post-1970s profit explosion, the debt-driven finance-industry expansion, and the sequential stock market and real estate booms and busts. Bailout interventions by the Federal Reserve and the US Treasury have thrown too little money too late at a problem that requires more than money to solve. As this book shows, we must now ask basic questions about capitalism as a system that has now convulsed the world economy into two great depressions in 75 years (and countless lesser crises, recession, and cycles in between). The book’s essays engage the long-overdue public discussion about capitalism as a system and about the basic structural changes needed not only to fix today’s broken economy but to prevent future crises. Richard Wolff has been a professor of economics at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst since 1981. He has been a visiting professor in the Graduate Program in International Affairs, at the New School in New York since 2007. Wolff’s major recent interests and publications include studies of US economic history to ascertain the basic structural causes of the current economic crisis and the examination of how alternative economic theories (neoclassical, Keynesian, and Marxian) understand and respond to the crisis in very different ways. His past work involves application of advanced class analysis to contemporary global capitalism. He has written, co-authored, and co-edited many books and dozens of scholarly and popular journal articles. His recent analyses of current economic events appear regularly in the webzine of the Monthly Review. In 2009, Capitalism Hits the Fan, the documentary on the current economic crisis, was released by Media Education Foundation (www.mediaed.org). Visit http://www.rdwolff.com for more information.
