Perché le donne poste di fronte a un bivio scelgono l'una o l'altra via? Perché la strada che a una donna sembra l'unica da poter percorrere, per un'altra è assolutamente da evitare? Cosa muove le loro scelte d'amore e di vita? Queste sono alcune delle domande a cui la protagonista, Mitta, cerca di dare risposte. Anche lei è donna o meglio lo era, essendo morta di peste a Napoli nel 1656.
Oggi di quel che fu Mitta non resta che la capuzzella, un teschio, uno dei tanti che riposano nell'ossario della Chiesa del Purgatorio ad Arco a Napoli, oggetto del culto delle anime pezzentelle. Nel doppio ruolo di autrice e defunta, Mitta tenta di comprendere e raccontare con ironia le scelte delle donne che in quasi quattro secoli sono scese nella cripta chiedendo alle anime del purgatorio un aiuto in cambio del refresco. Partendo dalle storie e dalle scelte di vita di talune di queste donne - l'ancella medievale, la prostituta della Rivoluzione Partenopea, la maestrina dell'Unità d'Italia, la borghese dell'epoca fascista, l'universitaria dei nostri giorni per citarne qualcuna - e attraversando vari periodi storici, Mitta finisce per narrare anche la propria vita e la sua non scelta.
Psychotherapist Irvin D. Yalom probes further into the mysteries of the therapeutic encounter in this entertaining and thoughtful follow-up to his bestselling Love's Executioner In six enthralling stories drawn from his own clinical experience, Irvin D. Yalom once again proves himself an intrepid explorer of the human psyche as he guides his patients--and himself--toward transformation. With eloquent detail and sharp-eyed observation Yalom introduces us to a memorable cast of characters. Drifting through his dreams and trampling through his thoughts are Paula, Yalom's "courtesan of death"; Myrna, whose eavesdropping gives new meaning to patient confidentiality; Magnolia, into whose ample lap Yalom longs to pour his own sorrows, even as he strives to ease hers; and Momma--ill-tempered, overpowering, and suffocating her son with both love and disapproval.
A richly rewarding, almost illicit glimpse into the therapist's heart and mind, Momma and the Meaning of Life illuminates the unique potential of every human relationship.
Darth Plagueis The Wise has become one of the most infamous and interesting characters in Star Wars despite never appearing on screen. He was directly responsible for just about everything that happened over the course of the Star Wars movies, and unbeknownst to many, was even alive for most of Episode I.
Darth Plagueis was a bit of a recluse, especially in his later years, so not much is known about him beyond the secondhand accounts of his former apprentice Palpatine. This book will dispel much of the mystery surrounding the famous Sith Lord by exploring his history, his relationship with the Emperor, and how the ripple effects of his actions are still being felt in the Star Wars universe today.
