L'editor: Versione italiana (Italian Edition)

New York, febbraio 1992. L'amore per la scrittura può nascere nei modi più disparati: per qualcuno è stato un libro che ha letto, per qualcun altro un insegnante; per James Smale è stata la macchina da scrivere svizzera che la madre possedeva quando lui era bambino. Una Hermes color uovo di pettirosso, un oggetto meraviglioso che gli ha infuso la passione per le parole. E adesso, dopo anni di duro lavoro, James corona finalmente il sogno della vita quando il suo romanzo autobiografico, La quarantena, viene acquisito dalla Doubleday per essere pubblicato. L'editor a cui è piaciuto e che lavorerà con lui è nientemeno che Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, che si è innamorata del modo in cui James è riuscito a mettere a nudo la propria famiglia disfunzionale.

Jackie - o la signora Onassis, come è conosciuta in ufficio - e James stringono un'amicizia inaspettata: la raffinata editor spingerà il suo autore a scrivere un finale autentico, incoraggiandolo a confrontarsi con la verità circa il suo passato e la relazione con sua madre. Finché, una volta rivelato un segreto famigliare da sempre taciuto, James capirà, forse troppo tardi, che la sua editor aveva sempre cercato di aiutarlo, non solo come autore.

The Man to See

This bestselling biography of legendary trial lawyer Edward Bennett Williams is "a skillful and lively portrait of a larger-than-life lawyer" (Kirkus Reviews).

Legendary attorney Edward Bennet Williams was arguably the best trial lawyer ever to practice. Now, for the first time, bestselling author Evan Thomas takes us into the courtrooms of Williams's greatest performances as he defends "Godfather" Frank Costello, Jimmy Hoffa, Frank Sinatra, The Washington Post, and others, as well as behind the scenes where the witnesses are coached, the traps set, and the deals cut.

In addition to being a lawyer of unprecedented influence, Williams was also an important Washington insider, privy to the secrets of America's most powerful men. Thomas tells the truth behind the stories that made Williams one of the most talked about public figures of his time, including Williams's role in the publication of the Pentagon Papers and the possibility that Williams may have been Watergate's Deep Throat. Based on Thomas's exclusive access to Williams's papers, The Man to See is an unprecedented look at the strategies and influence of this exceptional man.

To Punish and Protect: Against a System That Coddles Criminals

Deemed "the avenging angel of American justice" (Chris Matthews, Hardball), Jeanine Pirro, the famed Westchester County district attorney, presents hard truths about a justice system that she believes coddles criminals at the expense of innocent victims. Taking readers inside her daily battles on behalf of victims -- from the adolescent girl forced to assume wifely duties after her father murdered her stepmother to a hardworking man shot over a parking place -- District Attorney Pirro delivers a bold indictment of the criminal justice system and lays bare the ways in which parents, communities, and the system share complicity in fostering a dangerous environment for our citizens.
With the blunt courage of a woman who has spent her entire career working in a male-dominated world, Pirro demonstrates determination and compassion that will inspire anyone who has ever been a victim -- or a victim's loved one.
Finally, To Punish and Protect includes updated appendixes to help you and your loved ones make smart decisions about safety.
