Il corpo umano

Giordano, Paolo, 1982- author.

309 pages ; 22 cm
"È un plotone di giovani ragazzi quello comandato dal maresciallo Antonio René. L'ultimo arrivato, il caporalmaggiore Roberto Ietri, ha appena vent'anni e si sente inesperto in tutto. Per lui, come per molti altri, la missione in Afghanistan è la prima grande prova della vita. Al momento di partire, i protagonisti non sanno ancora che il luogo a cui verranno destinati è uno dei più pericolosi di tutta l'area del conflitto: la forward operating base (fob) Ice, nel distretto del Gulistan, "un recinto di sabbia esposto alle avversità", dove non c'è niente, soltanto polvere, dove la luce del giorno è così forte da provocare la congiuntivite e la notte non si possono accendere le luci per non attirare i colpi di mortaio. Ad attenderli laggiù, c'è il tenente medico Alessandro Egitto. È rimasto in Afghanistan, all'interno di quella precaria "bolla di sicurezza", di sua volontà, per sfuggire a una situazione privata che considera più pericolosa della guerra combattuta con le armi da fuoco. Sfiniti dal caldo, dalla noia e dal timore per una minaccia che appare ogni giorno più irreale, i soldati ricostruiscono dentro la fob la vita che conoscono, approfondiscono le amicizie e i contrasti. In un romanzo corale, che alterna spensieratezza e dramma, Giordano delinea con precisione i contorni delle "nuove guerre". E, nel farlo, ci svela l'esistenza di altri conflitti, ancora più sfuggenti ma non meno insidiosi: quelli familiari, quelli affettivi e quelli sanguinosi e interminabili contro se stessi."--publisher's or seller's website.

Meet Ajatashatru Oghash Rathod. One day a fakir leaves his small village in India and lands in Paris. A professional con artist, the fakir is on a pilgrimage to IKEA, where he intends to obtain an object he covets above all others: a brand-new bed of nails. Without adequate euros in the pockets of his silk trousers, the fakir is all the same confident that his counterfeit 100-Euro note (printed on one side only) and his usual bag of tricks will suffice. But when a swindled cab driver seeks his murderous revenge, the fakir accidentally embarks on a European tour, fatefully beginning in the wardrobe of the iconic Swedish retailer.
