Scrive l’Autrice: «Dedico questa raccolta di proverbi e modi di dire milanesi, che tante volte ho sentito dalla bocca di mia madre, ai miei carissimi figli Antonella, Chiara e Andrea, e ai miei adorati nipoti Matteo, Elisa, Gabriele e Vera, con la speranza che, di queste perle di saggezza popolare, conservino la memoria e, a volte, ne facciano anche tesoro. Un particolare ringraziamento all’amica fraterna Elisa Tallone, che mi ha assistito nella traduzione dal milanese all’italiano, con la passione e la competenza che la contraddistinguono».<br /><br />Carla De Alessandri Bacchelli, nata a Milano nel 1931, dopo avere frequentato il liceo classico Parini, si è laureata in Lettere e Filosofia presso l'Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore di Milano. L'amore per il dialetto milanese è frutto del legame profondo con il ramo materno della sua famiglia di origine, i Calatti. Altro ambito, in cui l'autrice si distingue, è la cucina, passione in cui Carla si cimenta dalla sua giovinezza, preparando deliziosi manicaretti, sia ispirati a piatti storici della tradizione milanese, sia a ricette regionali italiane e internazionali.

<p><b>“Extensive and brilliant investigations…a tour de force of detective work…Mr. O’Toole is a beacon of accuracy who should inspire all readers who prefer their facts real rather than phony.” —<i>Wall Street Journal</i></b></p><p>Everywhere you look, you’ll find viral quotable wisdom attributed to icons ranging from Abraham Lincoln to Mark Twain, from Cicero to Woody Allen. But more often than not, these attributions are false.</p><p>Garson O’Toole—the Internet’s foremost investigator into the dubious origins of our most repeated quotations, aphorisms, and everyday sayings—collects his efforts into a first-ever encyclopedia of corrective popular history. Containing an enormous amount of original research, this delightful compendium presents information previously unavailable to readers, writers, and scholars. It also serves as the first careful examination of what causes misquotations and how they spread across the globe.</p><p>Using the massive expansion in online databases as well as old-fashioned gumshoe archival digging, O’Toole provides a fascinating study of our modern abilities to find and correct misinformation. As Carl Sagan did <i>not</i> say, “Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.”</p>

Dead White Guys is a timely defense of the great books, arriving in the middle of a national debate about the fate of these books in high schools and universities around the country. Burriesci shows how the great books can enrich our lives as individuals, as citizens, and in our careers. Extending the argument first made by Anna Quinndlen's on the act of reading itself, How Reading Changed My Life," ("It is like the rubbing of two sticks together to make a fire, the act of reading, an improbable pedestrian task that leads to heat and light,) Burriesci reminds us all of the enormous impact reading has on our lives. After his daughter was born prematurely in 2010, Burriesci set out to write a book about 26 Great Books, from Plato to Karl Marx, and how their lessons have applied to his life. As someone who has spent a long and successful career advocating for great literature, Burriesci defends the great books in this series of tender and candid letters, rich in personal experience and full of humor. Matt Burriesci is a national literary leader, serving as Executive Director of both PEN/Faulkner, which bestows the largest peer-juried prize for fiction

<DIV><DIV><P>Renowned as a novelist, journalist, and humorist, Mark Twain is not only one of the most widely read and admired American writers, he is also among the most quoted. Wit and repartee permeate his work — from the short, light pieces to his great novel <I>Adventures of Huckleberry Finn</I> and even later, in dark meditations on the human condition where his humor takes on a cynical, satirical twist. <BR>This remarkably inexpensive volume gathers together hundreds of Twain's most memorable quips and comments on life, love, history, culture, travel, and a diversity of other topics that occupied his thoughts over 50 years of writing and lecturing.<BR>An invaluable, ready reference for writers, speakers, and others in search of amusing and insightful quotes, this entertaining and thought-provoking compilation is also an ideal introduction to Twain's inimitable style and thought.</DIV></DIV><P></P></P>
