Di immigrazione si parla molto, nelle cronache dei giornali e in tv, nei dibattiti pubblici e nelle discussioni private. Eppure molte domande sull’argomento restano ancora senza risposta. Da dove arrivano, e cosa cercano, i migranti che tentano la via del Mediterraneo? Cosa sono, e come si diffondono, le fake news sui flussi migratori? Quali sono i limiti e le responsabilità delle politiche italiane ed europee sull’accoglienza? Che cosa possiamo davvero fare? Con l’intensità e il rigore del grande giornalista, Furio Colombo racconta uno dei temi più caldi del nostro tempo, ne evidenzia le incongruenze e i paradossi, e suggerisce una lettura che sfida il politically correct con la forza delle idee e della ragione. Attuale, scomodo, necessario, questo libro parla in modo diretto, soprattutto a chi non è d’accordo, di ius soli e dei “nostri valori”, di frontiere chiuse e di terrorismo, di guerre lontane e della violenza quotidiana, razzista e xenofoba, che infiamma le nostre città.

Hunting the skies is not for the faint-hearted. In a world where water is scarce and deadly jellyfish swim through the sky, overprotected Christien dreams of excitement, adventure, and even a bit of danger. When he meets the exotic and alluring Jenine and her family of cloud hunters, he becomes determined to fulfill his dreams and see what this nomadic tribe of people is all about. The cloud hunters are set apart from society with their darker, heavily tattooed skin and the distinctive scars on their faces. Christien has been fascinated by them for years, and when Jenine invites him on a hunting expedition, he is only too eager to join her on the sky ship. But this is no ordinary cloud hunting trip—Christien finds that he's been brought along to help rescue Jenine's father, who's being held prisoner on the Forbidden Isles. Will their elaborate rescue plan succeed? Will Christien take up the cloud hunters' offer to become one of them—scars and all? Or will Christien find that there is something even more important to him than adventure in the high skies? In a richly imaginative tale, perfect for both boys and girls as they launch themselves into the world of fiction as independent readers, Alex Shearer creates a Dahl-esque fantasy that roams through realms of magic, wonder, and adventure.

This brilliant novel of obsession and revenge from the author of the bestselling By Reason of Insanity is one of the most darkly compelling stories of evil ever written. I recommend it unreservedly . . . but only (to) readers with strong stomachs and even stronger nerves.--Stephen King.
