Force of Attraction

Summary

The only thing more powerful than fear is desireÂ…. A seasoned K-9 officer with the police in Maryland, Cole Jamison has left her old life behind her. With a new home and a new partner - a protective canine named Hugo - Cole is ready for fresh challenges. A crucial position on an important drug task force is exactly what she wants - until she discovers her gorgeous, infuriating ex-husband will be the DEA agent in charge. Agent Scott Lucca may be a pro when it comes to undercover assignments, but this job is daunting even for him. Posing as a happy couple on the dog competition circuit means he and Cole need to get a lot closer than theyÂ’ve been in years. Playing a live-in couple should seem like a walk in the park compared to tracking a brutal criminal, but suddenly nothing could be more dangerous than the passionate fire theyÂ’ve rekindled.

Homo Irrealis

Summary

This program includes an introduction read by the author. The New York Times best-selling author of Find Me and Call Me by Your Name returns to the essay form with his collection of thoughts on time, the creative mind, and great lives and works. Irrealis moods are the set of verbal moods that indicate that something is not actually the case or a certain situation or action is not known to have happened.... André Aciman returns to the essay form in Homo Irrealis to explore what the present tense means to artists who cannot grasp the here and now. Irrealis is not about the present, or the past, or the future, but about what might have been but never was - but could in theory still happen. From meditations on subway poetry and the temporal resonances of an empty Italian street, to considerations of the lives and work of Sigmund Freud, Constantine Cavafy, W. G. Sebald, John Sloan, Éric Rohmer, Marcel Proust, and Fernando Pessoa, and portraits of cities such as Alexandria and St. Petersburg, Homo Irrealis is a deep reflection of the imagination’s power to shape our memories under time’s seemingly intractable hold. A Macmillan Audio production from Farrar, Straus and Giroux

Summary

Come si dà voce ai personaggi di un audiolibro? Come si entra nello spirito di una trama? Sono alcune delle domande che rivolgeremo a chi gli audiolibri li scrive, li pubblica e, soprattutto, li ascolta - attrici, attori, doppiatori e speaker -, in questo podcast che ogni 15 giorni racconterà due audiolibri: una novità uscita da poco e un classico della letteratura, oppure uno dei titoli che hanno appassionato di più gli ascoltatori negli ultimi anni. In questo primo episodio parleremo con Anna Bonaiuto (una delle voci per eccellenza degli audiolibri in Italia) de "L'amore molesto", considerato ormai un classico della narrativa italiana, come tutto il resto della produzione di Elena Ferrante, diventata un caso editoriale internazionale. Da questo audiolibro è stato tratto un film per il quale proprio Anna Bonaiuto ha vinto il David di Donatello nel 1995. La seconda parte sarà dedicata a "Chiamami col tuo nome", il romanzo di André Aciman che ha ispirato il film vincitore dell'Oscar nel 2018 per la migliore sceneggiatura non originale. Ne discutiamo con l'autore del romanzo e con il regista Luca Guadagnino.
