In the summer of 1944, a shocking murder rocked the fledgling Beats. William S. Burroughs and Jack Kerouac, both still unknown, we inspired by the crime to collaborate on a novel, a hard-boiled tale of bohemian New York during World War II, full of drugs and art, obsession and brutality, with scenes and characters drawn from their own lives. Finally published after more than sixty years, this is a captivating read, and incomparable literary artifact, and a window into the lives and art of two of the twentieth century’s most influential writers.

Il volume vuole essere un primo bilancio dell’esperienza del TFA (Tirocinio di Formazione Attiva) ordinario delle classi di ambito letterario che si è svolto presso la Facoltà di Lettere e Filosofia della Sapienza di Roma negli anni 2012-2013. Le questioni legate alla formazione docenti e all’insegnamento dell’italiano, delle lingue classiche e della letteratura sono al centro dei contributi introduttivi scritti dalle curatrici, da Roberto Nicolai, Luca Serianni, Stefano Quaglia e Carlo Albarello, docenti dell’università e della scuola attenti da anni alle problematiche della didattica disciplinare. La parte centrale del volume, articolata in sezioni introdotte dai docenti tutor per i diversi indirizzi, raccoglie i percorsi didattici elaborati e sperimentati nelle scuole dai tirocinanti, giovani professori in formazione che hanno affrontato con originalità e spirito innovativo il compito loro affidato, coniugando alte competenze disciplinari e passione, al servizio di un lavoro fondamentale, che ha un’altissima responsabilità sociale nei confronti delle nuove generazioni.

Katherine Shaw—Kate— is happy with her life. She has supportive friends, a glamorous magazine career, and a love of all things Jane Austen. But when she loses her job, her beloved grandmother falls ill and a financial disaster forces a sale on the family home, Kate finds herself facing a crisis that would test even the most stalwart of Austen heroines. Friends rally round, connecting her to freelance gigs, and presenting her with a birthday gift— title to land in Scotland—that's about to come in very handy. Turns out that Kate's first freelance assignment is to test an Austen-inspired theory: in the toughest economic times is a wealthy man the only must-have accessory? What begins as an article turns into an opportunity as Kate—now Lady Kate—jet-sets to Palm Beach, St Moritz and London where, in keeping company with the elite, she meets prospects who make Mr. Darcy look like an amateur. But will rubbing shoulders with men of good fortune ever actually lead her to love? And will Kate be able to choose between Mr. Rich and Mr. Right?

Interzone portrays the development of Burroughs's mature writing style by presenting a selection of pieces from the mid-1950s. His outrageous tone of voice represents the exorcism of four decades of oppressive sexual and social conditioning. Burroughs's close observations of humanity - its ugliness and ignorance - invites the reader to dispense with their traditional notions of decorum, and taste the world as he sees it.
