When it comes to murder it's all in a name When magistrate Matteo Arconti's namesake, an insurance man from Milan, is found dead outside the court buildings in Piazzale Clodio, it's a coded warning to the authorities - a clear message of defiance and intimidation. Commissioner Alec Blume, all too familiar with Rome's criminal underclass, knows little of the Calabrian mafia currently under investigation by the magistrate. Handing control of the murder inquiry to his now live-in and not-so-secret partner Caterina Mattiola, Blume takes a back seat. But while Caterina questions the dead man's widow, Blume has an underhand idea of his own to lure the arrogant mafioso out of his hiding place...

Original essays and glorious photography, stunningly designed in this unique moviebook from the director of Monsoon Wedding and Vanity Fair—a Fox Searchlight release. In her essay "Writing and Film," the Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Jhumpa Lahiri writes about the experience of seeing her novel "transposed" from paper to film. "Its essence remains, but it inhabits a different realm and must, like a transposed piece of music, conform to a different set of rules. . . . To have someone as devoted and as gifted as Mira reinvent my novel . . . has been a humbling and thrilling passage." Mira Nair's essay, "Photographs as Inspiration," begins with the provocative comment: "If it weren't for photography, I wouldn't be a filmmaker." She explains how photographs help her crystallize the visual style of her films and which particular photos influenced her vision for The Namesake. These two essays, written exclusively for this Newmarket Pictorial Moviebook, introduce an amazing panoply of images of people and places shot mainly in New York and Calcutta during the making of the movie, accented by excerpts from Lahiri's bestselling novel. Six Indian and American photographers' works are represented. Brilliantly illuminating the immigrant experience and the tangled ties between

Nach "Tiefland" ist dies der lange erwartete neue Roman der Pulitzer-Preisträgerin Jhumpa Lahiri. Eine allein lebende Italienerin in den Vierzigern: unsicher, scheu, orientierungslos, sich selbst fremd. Die Arbeit als Universitätsangestellte garantiert ihr einen unspektakulären Tagesablauf. Sie begibt sich stets an dieselben, ihr vertrauten Orte, in ihre Lieblingsbar, die Schwimmhalle, die Buchhandlung um die Ecke. An den Wochenenden besucht sie ihre alte Mutter. Ihre Einsamkeit lässt sie die Menschen um sich herum genau betrachten - auf der Straße, bei der Maniküre, im Supermarkt, im Zug. Die Tage vergehen, die Jahreszeiten wechseln sich ab. Und eines Tages, bei einem Ausflug ans Meer, geschieht etwas Unerwartetes. Sie trifft eine Entscheidung, die sie selbst überrascht. Lahiri, bekannt für ihre feinste Beobachtungsgabe und Präzision bei der Figurendarstellung, entwirft das ergreifende Stimmungsbild einer Frau, die an einen Wendepunkt ihres Lebens gerät und deren Schicksal einem ans Herz geht. Suggestive, luzide Prosa mit einem großen Sog.
