Paths of Armor, first published in 1950, is the account of the historic 5th Armored Division from the time of its formation in October 1941, to the end of the war in May 1945. Because of the secrecy of its missions and the speed at which the men and equipment moved, the Division was also known as "Patton's Ghosts" (the Division was part of Patton's Third Army), and because of its many successes, as the "Victory Division." Following training in the U.S., the Division transferred to England, and landed on Utah Beach in Normandy on July 24, 1944.
Then followed months of combat as the Division moved across northern France, Belgium, Luxembourg, and into Germany. In December 1944, the Division took part in the fierce fighting in the Hurtgen Forest and the Battle of the Bulge. Included are more than 100 pages of photographs and maps and an appendix with key Division Staff and Unit Citations.
In "Lovebook", il primo romanzo, è quello di una bambina di otto anni che vede un ragazzo e capisce che lo amerà per tutta la vita. In "Il teorema del tempo perso" è quello di un uomo in carriera che sniffa cocaina e passa da un'amante all'altra finché non arriva una donna a ridare colore e significato alla sua esistenza. Simona Sparaco racconta storie come queste, storie del nostro tempo. Il tempo veloce di "Lovebook" e dell'amore nell'epoca di internet, in cui, nonostante tutto si consumi in modo rapido e bulimico, può sbocciare lo stesso un sentimento intenso e sofferto, capace di attraversare gli oceani.
E poi ci sono la concitazione e la follia di "Il teorema del tempo perso", in cui la frenesia spazza via ogni cosa, e solo lo sguardo di una sconosciuta può far battere il cuore al ritmo giusto. Per la prima volta raccolte in un unico volume due romanzi, due storie vere, semplici e complicate come l'amore, che non smetteranno mai di farci sognare.
"Il teorema del tempo perso" è stato precedentemente pubblicato nella collana "Anagramma" con il titolo "Bastardi senza amore".
