"After an umpteenth quarrel with my brother, on the morning of the first of May in the year 1882, at the age of eleven, I entered the grotto to stay there forever." - Incipit

"Nella grotta" ("In the grotto") is the first illustrated book by the Berlin-based italian artist Vacon Sartirani. Loosely based on the unfinished tale by the Austrian psychiatrist Wenzel Aar, the book narrates the unreal tale of a boy whom, at the age of eleven, enter a grotto where he lives a series of dream-like events. Articulated in twelve episodes accompanied by reproduction of captivating and previously unpublished linocut prints, "Nella Grotta" is a gloomy and fascinating short tale of surreal (self-?) exploration. Text in italian with english translation.

This is the e-book version of the original first edition, hand-bound by the author, and limited of 90 numbered copies.

In this enchanting sequel to the number one bestseller The Five People You Meet in Heaven, Mitch Albom tells the story of Eddie’s heavenly reunion with Annie—the little girl he saved on earth—in an unforgettable novel of how our lives and losses intersect.

Fifteen years ago, in Mitch Albom’s beloved novel, The Five People You Meet in Heaven, the world fell in love with Eddie, a grizzled war veteran- turned-amusement park mechanic who died saving the life of a young girl named Annie. Eddie’s journey to heaven taught him that every life matters. Now, in this magical sequel, Mitch Albom reveals Annie’s story.

The accident that killed Eddie left an indelible mark on Annie. It took her left hand, which needed to be surgically reattached. Injured, scarred, and unable to remember why, Annie’s life is forever changed by a guilt-ravaged mother who whisks her away from the world she knew. Bullied by her peers and haunted by something she cannot recall, Annie struggles to find acceptance as she grows. When, as a young woman, she reconnects with Paulo, her childhood love, she believes she has finally  found happiness.

As the novel opens, Annie is marrying Paulo. But when her wedding night day ends in an unimaginable accident, Annie finds herself on her own heavenly journey—and an inevitable reunion with Eddie, one of the five people who will show her how her life mattered in ways she could not have fathomed.

Poignant and beautiful, filled with unexpected twists, The Next Person You Meet in Heaven reminds us that not only does every life matter, but that every ending is also a beginning—we only need to open our eyes to see it.
