About the book
An expanded large-format edition of Meyorowitz's 1983 photo-bouquet of urban floraThis new and expanded edition of Joel Meyerowitz's widely acclaimed 1983 photobook Wild Flowers features new and unpublished images, and a larger format. For nearly 50 years Meyerowitz has tended his visual garden in the streets, parks and cities that he has visited or lived in. He goes into the streets wide-eyed and passionate, carrying a machine ideally suited to the task of taking it all in. One day, while editing, Meyerowitz stumbled upon a small group of photographs featuring flowers, which he had accumulated without realizing. He began to see that this innocent premise might serve to bring together a variety of his other photographic interests. Thus Wild Flowers was born. With a unique sense of visual humor and an unmatched attention to detail, Meyorowitz invites readers to see the natural beauty in the busy city landscape. Born in the Bronx in 1938, Joel Meyerowitz is best known for his extensive street photography practice. He began capturing everyday scenes on the streets of New York in 1962 and was an early adopter of color film for the genre, advocating for its use when many self-serious career photographers resisted its popularization. He has published 35 books.

TUESDAY, JUNE 22ND, 6 PM ET


Please join us for a virtual event with translator Ann Goldstein and curatore Marta Barone as they present "Distant Fathers", the singular autobiography from author Marina Jarre, translated into English for the first time.


We will be presenting this event virtually using Zoom. 

PLEASE REGISTER HERE

DISTANT FATHERS is a singular autobiography that unfurls from author Marina Jarre’s native Latvia during the 1920s and '30s and expands southward to the Italian countryside. In distinctive writing as poetic as it is precise, Jarre depicts an exceptionally multinational and complicated family: her elusive, handsome father—a Jew who perished in the Holocaust; her severe, cultured mother—an Italian Protestant who translated Russian literature. This memoir—likened to Speak, Memory by Vladimir Nabokov or Annie Ernaux’s The Years and now translated into English for the first time—probes questions of time, language, womanhood, belonging and estrangement, while asking what homeland can be for those who have none, or many more than one.

 

Marina Jarre was born in Riga, Latvia,and lived in Italy from 1935 until her death at the age of 90 in 2016. Cultural identity, personal character, psychology, and autobiographical themes are central elements of her novels and stories.

 

Ann Goldstein has translated The Neapolitan Novels and other works by Elena Ferrante, as well as writings by Primo Levi, Giacomo Leopardi, Pier Paolo Pasolini and Anna Maria Ortese. She is a former editor at The New Yorker.

 

Marta Barone is the author of the novel Città sommersa and is overseeing the republication of Marina Jarre's writings in Italy for Bompiani.

Press:

The New York Times features DISTANT FATHERS 9781939931948 by Marina Jarre in its New & Noteworthy column:

"This impressionistic memoir by an overlooked Italian writer — the child of a Christian mother and a Jewish father killed in the Holocaust — is seen as her masterwork." https://www.nytimes.com/2021/06/15/books/review/new-this-week.html 

“This is a beautifully ingenious memoir, saturated in the history of the European 20th century, and made all the more compelling by Ann Goldstein’s luminous translation.”
Vivian Gornick, author of Fierce Attachments and The Odd Woman and the City

 

 

“Ann Goldstein’s shimmering translation of Jarre’s prose delivers into English a European masterpiece.”
Benjamin Taylor, author of Here We Are and The Hue and Cry at Our House

 

“Marina Jarre is an original, powerful and incisive writer ... Her works―true, small-scale, essential masterpieces―have found passionate readers and critics and have an indisputable place in Italian literature of the past fifty years.”
―Claudio Magris, author of Danube and Blameless

 

“Marina Jarre’s astonishing work reads like a dreamscape. Here, a Nabokovian memory mingles with meditations on homeland, womanhood, and sexuality. A book both sharp as a blade and glistening like a river in the sun.”
—Lila Azam Zanganeh, author of The Enchanter: Nabokov and Happiness

THURSDAY, MAY 13TH, 6 PM ET

Please join us for a virtual event with author, Glenna Lang, in conversation with Andrew Berman , as they will present her last book "Jane Jacobs's First City". 

We will be presenting this event virtually using Zoom. 

PLEASE REGISTER HERE


After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

A thorough investigation of how Jane Jacobs’s ideas about the life and economy of great cities grew from her home city, Scranton

Jane Jacobs’s First City vividly reveals how this influential thinker and writer’s classic works germinated in the once vibrant, mid-size city of Scranton, Pennsylvania, where Jane spent her initial eighteen years. In the 1920s and 1930s, Scranton was a place of enormous di­versity and opportunity. Small businesses of all kinds abounded and flourished, quality public education was available to and supported by all, and even recent immi­grants could save enough to buy a house. Opposing political parties joined forces to tackle problems, and citizens worked together for the public good.

Through interviews with contemporary Scrantonians and research of historic newspapers, city directories, and vital records, author Glenna Lang has uncovered Scranton as young Jane experienced it and shows us the lasting impact of her growing up in this thriving and accessible environment. Readers can follow the development of Jane’s acute observational abilities from childhood through her passion in early adulthood to understand and write about what she saw. Reflecting Jane’s belief in trusting one’s own direct observation above all, this volume has been richly illustrated with historic and modern color images that help bring alive a lost Scranton. The book demonstrates why, at the end of Jacobs’s life, her thoughts and conversations increasingly returned to Scranton and the potential for cohesion and inclusiveness in all cities.

Glenna Lang's previous work about Jane Jacobs—Genius of Common Sense: The Story of Jane Jacobs and “The Death and Life of Great American Cities”—was chosen as a 2009 Notable Book by both the New York Times and Smithsonian Magazine. She wrote and illustrated Looking Out for Sarah, about a day in the life of a seeing-eye dog, which won the American Library Association’s Schneider Family Award. Although she grew up mainly in New York City, she has lived for many years in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and teaches at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, now part of Tufts University.

Andrew Berman has been named to Vanity Fair’s “Hall of Fame” for his work to fight to preserve the character of Greenwich Village, and was named one of the 100 Most Influential New Yorkers by New York Magazine and one of the 100 Most Powerful People in New York Real Estate by the New York Observer. Since 2002 he has been the Executive Director of the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation, which has become the largest neighborhood preservation organization in New York City.

 

 

Author Glenna Lang's previous work about Jane Jacobs-Genius of Common Sense: The Story of Jane Jacobs and "The Death and Life of Great American Cities"-aimed to inspire young adults but appealed to all ages in the general public and at universities. It was chosen as a 2009 Notable Book by both the New York Times and Smithsonian Magazine. As an illustrator, she produced four classic poems as picture books for children with David R. Godine, Publisher. Lang wrote and illustrated Looking Out for Sarah, about a day in the life of a seeing-eye dog, which won the American Library Association's Schneider Family Award. Although she grew up mainly in New York City, she has lived for many years in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and teaches at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, now part of Tufts University. She has loved spending time in Scranton with her husband, Alexander von Hoffman, and their dog, Easy.

Both pragmatic and inquisitive, the book explores power structures and how to navigate them. Interviews showcase people at different stages of their careers, and biographical sketches explore individuals marginalized by sexism, racism, and ableism.

Please join us for a virtual meeting of Rizzoli's International Series "Lessico Famigliare" on Thursday, March 25 at 2 pm EST, 7pm CET to discuss  with author Chiara Valerio, her latest successes: Il cuore non si vede and La matematica e' politica. This event will be in Italian and presented virtually on instagram live. Please join us at @rizzolibookstore


Il cuore non si vede
Andrea Dileva, quarantenne, studioso, curioso, professore di greco, si sveglia un giorno senza il cuore. Laura vive con lui, è abituata alle sue mancanze, ma questa proprio non se l'aspettava. Carla in teoria sarebbe la sua amante, ma a casa ha un cane, un bimbo, un marito, e poi con il corpo di Andrea ha sempre avuto un rapporto difficile, in fin dei conti le va bene anche cosí. Forse Simone avrebbe la fantasia per capire com'è che l'amico di mamma sta perdendo i pezzi, d'altronde è stato proprio lui a raccontargli storie di leviatani giganti e donne con la coda di pesce. Ma Simone ha otto anni e nessuno ha chiesto il suo parere. Andrea cerca dappertutto una storia che assomigli alla sua, senza trovarla: eppure era convinto che la mitologia fosse l'archetipo di ogni cosa. Certo, se l'umanità intera ha il terrore di morire, deve prendere atto che per lui è diventato impossibile. Come può smettere di battere un cuore che non c'è piú? 

La matematica e' politica
La matematica rivista come prassi politica, e non solo come teoria, è un formidabile esercizio di democrazia: come la democrazia si fonda su un sistema di regole, crea comunità e lavora sulle relazioni. Come la democrazia, la matematica amplia ma non nega. Studiando matematica si capiscono molte cose sulla verità. Per esempio che le verità sono partecipate e pertanto i principî di autorità non esistono, che le verità sono tutte assolute ma tutte transitorie perché dipendono dall'insieme di definizione e dalle condizioni al contorno. Svolgere un problema matematico è un esercizio di democrazia perché chi non accetta l'errore e non si esercita nell'intenzione di capire il mondo non riesce né a cambiarlo né a governarlo. Chiara Valerio tesse in un pamphlet polemico un parallelo tra matematica e democrazia, due aree che non subiscono la dittatura dell'urgenza. 


Chiara Valerio (Scauri,1978) Ha scritto romanzi, racconti, critica letteraria e teatro. Il suo ultimo libro è La matematica è politica uscito nel 2020 per Einaudi che ha pubblicato tutti i suoi ultimi romanzi. Redattore di Nuovi Argomenti, collabora con Repubblica, L’Espresso e Vanity Fair. Su Rai Radio 3 conduce, ogni domenica mattina, il programma L’isola deserta e con Anna Antonelli, Fabiana Carobolante e Lorenzo Pavolini cura Ad alta voce. Per nottetempo, ha tradotto e curato Flush, Freshwater e Tra un atto e l'altro e di Virginia Woolf, e con Alessandro Giammei, il carteggio, Woolf-Stratchey. È la responsabile della narrativa italiana della casa editrice Marsilio. Ha un dottorato in Calcolo delle probabilità.

WEDNEASDAY, MARCH 17TH, 12 PM EAST

After one year since the Covid 19 has arrived in NYC, Please join us on Wednesday, March 17th, at 12 pm NYC time for a Zoom discussion on a collective project, a choir of voices during the Pandemic. Like poetry, it captured a universal shift, before all the news, all the theories, all the subjective experiences emerged.

Register in advance for this meeting:

https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJIpdO2rqD4jHNcZKoiZZlRjzVfYEV4iOJZy

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.


Fase 1 is a book with several important International authors and journalists as well as a variety of human perspectives.
It’s a diary on edge, circling around a dividing line between Before and After. Sixty- four sides of a collective moment, frozen in time. (February-April 2020). 

This is a collection of short stories and poetic fragments of 64 writers, journalists, intellectuals and representatives of different fields have captured - in a concise way - the instant when they felt something shifted, entering this new global pandemic era. Instead of a journalistic approach, or a long-form personal essay or an analysis of the phenomenon, this book lets the texts speak for themselves. 

In Italy «Fase 1» was the legislative period, to contain the spread of coronavirus, that started with late February and ended in early May. The effective State-mandated lockdown began abruptly the first week of March, announced at night, at a moment’s notice. Movements were extremely restricted, transportation and business completely froze; Police routinely checked on citizens and written permissions were required for the few allowed outings. 

Acquario publishing

Acquario is a new publishing venture: conceived between Turin and Milan with the purpose of making beautiful books - to enhance the reading experience, the sight, the touch - designed and composed with a specific look.

Acquario looks for an out of the box point of view, a ‘lateral thinking’ approach, riding the tides of global communication in a new way and it is aimed at readers who have developed a taste for surprising stories.

A project that, through its founders, has brought together a life-long editor, with a legacy in publishing and a journalist.

There is an attention to detail and graphic design when it comes to the physical object itself and to the art of bookbinding, producing high quality books, printed on refined paper.
Each book has a Web Side, a digital side. A parallel story, a glimpse into the universe inside the book linked to the text thanks to a QR code or through a picture in augmented reality. Through this digital new dimension, the engagement isn’t just faster and more efficient, but also deeper. These

digital walks turn the book in more than just an object: a jigsaw puzzle that syncs every angle of the storytelling experience.

We will be presenting this event virtually on instagram live. Please join us at @rizzolibookstore

About the Book
Dante is the poet who invented Italy. He didn't just give us a language, he gave us above all an idea of ourselves and of our country: "Il Bel Paese" where we say "Si". A land united by culture and beauty, destined for a universal role: because it collects the legacy of the Roman Empire and the classical world, and is the cradle of Christianity and humanism. Italy is not born of a war or diplomacy, it is born from Dante's verses. 

About the Author
Aldo Cazzullo is journalist and writer. He joined La Stampa as a trainee in 1988. In 2003, after fifteen years in La Stampa, he moved to Corriere della Sera where he was a special correspondent and columnist.
