ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
Quando qualcosa non va, Alice Pearse cerca rifugio nella lettura. È sempre stato così; fin dalla più tenera infanzia, per Alice i libri sono isole felici dove potersi rilassare, mondi in cui perdersi, tesori da amare. E, adesso che si è trovata all'improvviso con un marito disoccupato, tre bambini da mantenere e un mutuo da pagare, i libri sono diventati letteralmente la sua ancora di salvezza: è infatti grazie alla sua fama di book blogger che le viene offerto un impego da Scroll, una potente società che vuole lanciare una catena di caffè dove tutti gli amanti della lettura possono sprofondare nelle comode poltrone, consultare uno sterminato catalogo di e-book e leggere. Nonostante le feroci proteste della sua migliore amica, proprietaria della libreria del quartiere, Alice accetta, tuttavia non le ci vuole molto per rendersi conto che gestire la famiglia con un lavoro a tempo pieno è molto più difficile di quanto non si sarebbe aspettata, e che dietro l'apparenza da paese delle meraviglie, Scroll nasconde un lato da incubo. Eppure Alice non si scoraggia: in fondo, a volte, per trovare la felicità basta girare pagina.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:
In "A Window Opens", beloved books editor at Glamour magazine, Elisabeth Egan, brings us Alice Pearse, a compulsively honest, longing-to-have-it-all, sandwich generation heroine for our social-media-obsessed, lean in (or opt out) age. Like her fictional forebears Kate Reddy and Bridget Jones, Alice plays many roles (which she never refers to as “wearing many hats” and wishes you wouldn’t, either). She is a mostly-happily married mother of three, an attentive daughter, an ambivalent dog-owner, a part-time editor, a loyal neighbor and a Zen commuter. She is not: a cook, a craftswoman, a decorator, an active PTA member, a natural caretaker or the breadwinner. But when her husband makes a radical career change, Alice is ready to lean in—and she knows exactly how lucky she is to land a job at Scroll, a hip young start-up which promises to be the future of reading, with its chain of chic literary lounges and dedication to beloved classics. The Holy Grail of working mothers¯an intellectually satisfying job and a happy personal life¯seems suddenly within reach. Despite the disapproval of her best friend, who owns the local bookstore, Alice is proud of her new “balancing act” (which is more like a three-ring circus) until her dad gets sick, her marriage flounders, her babysitter gets fed up, her kids start to grow up and her work takes an unexpected turn. Readers will cheer as Alice realizes the question is not whether it’s possible to have it all, but what does she¯Alice Pearse¯really want?
