Built on an inverted forest, paved with a tortoiseshell of boulders, Venice is a maze of tiny alleys, bridges and squares. Tiziano Scarpa wanders through the city, recounting the customs and secrets that only Venetians know. With everything from practical advice for aspiring Venetian lovers to hints at where to find the best bacaro, Scarpa waves the tourist in the right direction and, without naming a single restaurant, hotel or bar, relates the secret language needed to experience the real Venice. So ignore the street signs - why fight the labyrinth? Venice, the fish, is ready to swallow you whole.

The Reader's Guide to Judaism is a survey of English-language translations of the most important primary texts in the Jewish tradition. The field is assessed in some 470 essays discussing individuals (Martin Buber, Gluckel of Hameln), literature (Genesis, Ladino Literature), thought and beliefs (Holiness, Bioethics), practice (Dietary Laws, Passover), history (Venice, Baghdadi Jews of India), and arts and material culture (Synagogue Architecture, Costume). The emphasis is on Judaism, rather than on Jewish studies more broadly.

Everyone eats, but rarely do we ask why or investigate why we eat what we eat. Why do we love spices, sweets, coffee? How did rice become such a staple food throughout so much of eastern Asia? Everyone Eats examines the social and cultural reasons for our food choices and provides an explanation of the nutritional reasons for why humans eat, resulting in a unique cultural and biological approach to the topic. E. N. Anderson explains the economics of food in the globalization era, food's relationship to religion, medicine, and ethnicity as well as offers suggestions on how to end hunger, starvation, and malnutrition. Everyone Eats feeds our need to understand human ecology by explaining the ways that cultures and political systems structure the edible environment.

Dream of Venice in Black and White reveals Venice as a narrative in chiaroscuro. Over 50 photographers from 10 countries have documented the city to create a visual legacy of elegant realism in light and shadow. The acclaimed Italian author Tiziano Scarpa contributes a poignant reflection of his life as a Venetian, experiencing "perpetual change." His eloquent and candid Introduction exposes the complex issues that threaten the survival of Venice. Venice has had the audacity to exist as a living city for over 1,500 years. But for how much longer? Dream of Venice in Black and White is dedicated to Gianni Berengo Gardin. His photographs, both captivating and controversial, have become intrinsic to Italy's collective conscious. A portion of the proceeds from each book will be donated to the Ikona Photo Gallery, located in Venice's Ghetto Nuovo.

Nach einer Überdosis Schlaftabletten erwacht Lucy benebelt und inmitten eines Berges aus puderzuckerbestäubten Donuts in ihrem Auto, ohne genau zu wissen, wo sie sich befindet. Wo befindet man sich überhaupt im Leben, wenn man mit neununddreißig Jahren schon seit einer Ewigkeit über griechische Dichtung promoviert, partout keine Kinder will, frisch getrennt ist und immer dicker und depressiver wird? Eine Liebe-und-Sex-Therapiegruppe in Venice Beach soll für Lucy Antworten auf diese und andere Fragen liefern, genauso wie ihr neuer Tinder-Account. Doch das unfassbarste High erlebt sie am Strand: Ein wunderschöner Meermann taucht aus dem Ozean auf. Alles zuvor Gewesene wird relativ. Ein ehrlicher, komischer und trauriger Roman, der den ewigen Glauben an die Erlösung durch Liebe und Sexualität radikal hinterfragt.
