Μια τετραμελής ομάδα –μια ψυχολόγος, μια βιολόγος, μια ανθρωπολόγος και μια χωρομέτρης– στέλνεται να εξερευνήσει την αποκλεισμένη, μυστηριώδη Περιοχή Χ (είναι η δωδέκατη αποστολή που αναλαμβάνει τούτη την εξερεύνηση). Εκεί, μες στην παρθένα ερημιά, όπου δεν απομένουν παρά μόνο τα χαλάσματα ενός εγκαταλειμμένου χωριού, τα τέσσερα μέλη βρίσκουν έναν μυστηριώδη πύργο βυθισμένο στη γη, που στους τοίχους του ξετυλίγεται μια παράξενη γραφή φτιαγμένη από μύκητες, και στην άλλη άκρη της Περιοχής Χ ένα φάρο με ίχνη, μέσα, ενός τρομερού μακελειού. Πατώντας στέρεα στη λογοτεχνία του Χ. Φ. Λάβκραφτ και του Τζ. Γκ. Μπάλαρντ, μα και στο Σολάρις, ίσως, του Στάνισλαβ Λεμ, και στην αίσθηση που δίνει μια ταινία όπως το Στάλκερ του Αντρέι Ταρκόφσκι, ο Τζεφ Βάντερμιερ στον Αφανισμό (βραβευμένο με το Βραβείο Nebula το 2014), το πρώτο μυθιστόρημα της Τριλογίας της Νότιας Ζώνης, πλάθει μια εφιαλτική και συνάμα μαγευτική μα εντελώς μοναδική ιστορία επιστημονικής φαντασίας, ένα από εκείνα τα σπάνια βιβλία που εντέλει, και παρά τις όποιες ομοιότητες και αναφορές, στέκουν μόνα τους, δίχως στην πραγματικότητα να έχουν όμοιό τους.

Description: Jennifer's life is reeling out of control. Now, there is no denying her feelings for Alex--or his for her. After spending one night together, he took her to heights she never thought was possible. The passion they shared in that one moment is something she can't shake, and it consumes her, throwing her off her game. But this is no game. What they have is real. Still, even as events start to pull them close together, other events threaten to tear them apart. A threat is revealed. People aren't who they appear to be. And then there is their arrangement. Once, she was Alex's employee, the one woman who was hired to make certain he wasn't distracted from his work. Even though they are now in a committed relationship, what will that mean for Jennifer when she agrees to become his employee again? Will their relationship survive a threat to end Alex's life? Or will it fail under the pressure to keep him---and her--alive?

Ένα σύγχρονο αριστούργηµα από την πιο δηµοφιλή Ιταλίδα συγγραφέα της εποχής µας. Η Υπέροχη Φίλη µου, το πρώτο βιβλίο της Τετραλογίας της Νάπολης, είναι η ιστορία της Έλενας και της Λίλα, µια ιστορία που ξεκινά τη δεκαετία του ’50 µε φόντο µια φτωχογειτονιά της Νάπολης. Η συγγραφέας καταδύεται στην περίπλοκη φύση της φιλίας των δύο κοριτσιών που από έφηβες γίνονται γυναίκες, ακολουθώντας βήµα βήµα την εξέλιξη καθεµιάς ξεχωριστά, τον τρόπο που η µία επηρεάζει την άλλη, τα συναισθήµατα που ανά τις δεκαετίες τις βοηθούν να χτίσουν µια ουσιαστική, ακλόνητη σχέση. Με απαράµιλλο στιλ και αψεγάδιαστη, σχολαστική µατιά η Φερράντε σε µια καθηλωτική αφήγηση ξεδιπλώνει µέσα από την ιστορία µιας φιλίας την ιστορία µιας γειτονιάς, µιας πόλης κι εντέλει ενός έθνους που βιώνει κοσµοϊστορικές αλλαγές µε το πέρασµα των δεκαετιών. «Και τελικά το πραγµατικό θέµα της Φερράντε είναι το περιθώριο που έχει ο καθένας από µας, τόσο µεγάλο και τόσο ελάχιστο, να διαµορφώσει ο ίδιος την ύπαρξή του. Κι αυτό το περιθώριο εξετάζει από κάθε του άποψη, πολιτική, προσωπική, υπαρξιακή... Κατά βάθος αυτή η Τετραλογία της Νάπολης θα µπορούσε να ονοµαστεί η τετραλογία της ελευθερίας». Le Monde des Livres «Να διαποτίσεις τη µυθοπλασία µε την αδιάλυτη δύναµη της ζωής, να την κάνεις να είναι όχι απλά λέξεις στο χαρτί αλλά εσωτερική δύναµη, αυτό είναι το µεγαλύτερο επίτευγµα της τέχνης...» Financial Times «Η άγνωστη συγγραφέας ενός διάσηµου αριστουργήµατος... Η Έλενα Φερράντε αναγνωρίζεται σε παγκόσµιο επίπεδο ως µια σπουδαία συγγραφέας της εποχής µας. Κανείς µας όµως δε γνωρίζει την ταυτότητά της και εκείνη είναι αποφασισµένη να µην την αποκαλύψει». The Sunday Times «Ό,τι καλύτερο διάβασα φέτος». Richard Flanagan «Η Φερράντε µιλάει για τις γυναίκες και τη φιλία µε ασύλληπτη δύναµη». Gwyneth Paltrow «Διαβάζοντας τη Φερράντε θυµήθηκα αυτή τη σχεδόν παιδιάστικη έξαψη να διαβάσεις την επόµενη σελίδα, αυτή την αίσθηση ότι τα µάτια σου έχουν ξεκολλήσει από το κεφάλι σου, αυτή τη σκέψη πως ποτέ δεν περίµενες ότι τα βιβλία µπορούν να σου το κάνουν αυτό!» Elizabeth Strout (βραβείο Πούλιτζερ) «Η γραφή της Φερράντε δε γνωρίζει όρια, µπορεί να οδηγήσει την κάθε σκέψη στο ρηξικέλευθο αποτέλεσµα και αντίστοιχα να γυρίσει πίσω στην πιο ακραία της αρχή...» The New Yorker «Ένα αριστούργηµα, πέρα από όρια και είδη». Il Salvagente «Οι γυναίκες της Φερράντε είναι πραγµατικά έργα τέχνης!» El Pais «Φανταστείτε την Τζέιν Όστεν θυµωµένη και θα έχετε µια ιδέα του πόσο εκρηκτικά σπουδαία είναι αυτή η Τετραλογία της Νάπολης!» The Australian

New York Times, Wall Street Journal & USA Today Bestselling Series. Seven books in total. This edition contains the first three: Debt Inheritance “I own you. I have the piece of paper to prove it. It’s undeniable and unbreakable. You belong to me until you’ve paid off your debts.” Nila Weaver’s family is indebted. Being the first born daughter, her life is forfeit to the first born son of the Hawks to pay for sins of ancestors past. The dark ages might have come and gone, but debts never leave. She has no choice in the matter. First Debt: “You say I’ll never own you. If I win—you willingly give me that right. You sign not only the debt agreement, but another—one that makes me your master until your last breath is taken. You do that, and I’ll give you this.” Nila Weaver’s family is indebted. Stolen, taken, and bound not by monsters but by an agreement written over six hundred years ago, she has no way out. Second Debt: “I tried to play a game. I tried to wield deceit as perfectly as the Hawks. But when I thought I was winning, I wasn’t. Jethro isn’t what he seems—he’s the master of duplicity. However, I refuse to let him annihilate me further.” Nila Weaver has grown from naïve seamstress to full-blown fighter. Every humdrum object is her arsenal, and sex…sex is her greatest weapon of all.
