Emma Cline - A ​lányok
Észak-Kalifornia, ​a hatvanas évek vége. A tizennégy éves, kallódó tinédzser, Evie Boyd nyáron megpillant egy csapat lányt a parkban. Mágnesként vonzza veszedelmes szabadságuk, féktelenségük, és legfőképp Suzanne, az egyik idősebb lány. Evie hamarosan útnak is indul vele arra a farmra, amely egy szekta karizmatikus vezetőjének bázisa. Evie varázslatosnak tartja a hegyek rejtette, hátborzongató ranchet, pedig a házban és környékén minden rohad. A magányos kamasz kétségbeesetten vágyik rá, hogy befogadják. Miközben egyre több időt tölt távol otthonától, és rajongása Suzanne iránt egyre nő, szinte észrevétlenül sodródik a szekta által elkövetett véres eseményekbe. Emma Cline első regényében lebilincselő és emberközeli emléket állít a Manson-gyilkosságoknak. Ez a könyv az ártatlanság, a vakhit és a kiábrándulás sokkoló története.

Emma Cline - Le ​ragazze
«Non ​appena mi cadde l'occhio sulle ragazze che attraversavano il parco, la mia attenzione restò fissa su di loro. Quella dai capelli neri con le sue accompagnatrici, la loro risata un rimprovero alla mia solitudine. Stavo aspettando che succedesse qualcosa, senza sapere cosa. E poi ecco». Evie voleva solo che qualcuno si accorgesse di lei. Come tutte le adolescenti cercava su di sé lo sguardo degli altri. Un'occasione per essere trascinata via, anche a forza, dalla propria esistenza. Ma non aveva mai creduto che questo potesse accadere davvero. Finché non le vide: le ragazze. Le chiome lunghe e spettinate, i vestiti cortissimi. Il loro incedere fluido e incurante come di «squali che tagliano l'acqua». Poi il ranch, nascosto tra le colline. L'incenso, la musica, i corpi, il sesso. E, al centro di tutto, Russell. Russell con il suo carisma oscuro. Ci furono avvertimenti, segni di ciò che sarebbe accaduto? Oppure Evie era ormai troppo sedotta dalle ragazze per capire che tornare indietro sarebbe stato impossibile?

Emma Cline - Las ​chicas
California. ​Verano de 1969. Evie, una adolescente insegura y solitaria a punto de adentrarse en el incierto mundo de los adultos, se fija en un grupo de chicas en un parque: visten de un modo descuidado, van descalzas y parecen vivir felices y despreocupadas, al margen de las normas. Días después, un encuentro fortuito propiciará que una de esas chicas?Suzanne, unos años mayor que ella?la invite a acompañarlas. Viven en un rancho solitario y forman parte de una comuna que gira alrededor de Russell, músico frustrado, carismático, manipulador, líder, gurú. Fascinada y perpleja, Evie se sumerge en una espiral de drogas psicodélicas y amor libre, de manipulación mental y sexual, que le hará perder el contacto con su familia y con el mundo exterior. Y la deriva de esa comuna que deviene secta dominada por una creciente paranoia desembocará en un acto de violencia bestial, extremo?Esta novela es obra de una debutante que, dada su juventud, ha dejado boquiabierta a la crítica por la inusitada madurez con la que cincela la compleja psicología de sus personajes. Emma Cline construye un retrato excepcional de la fragilidad adolescente y del tormentoso proceso de hacerse adulto. También aborda el tema de la culpa y las decisiones que nos marcarán toda la vida.

Emma Cline - Daddy
The ​stories in Emma Cline’s stunning first collection consider the dark corners of human experience, exploring the fault lines of power between men and women, parents and children, past and present. A man travels to his son’s school to deal with the fallout of a violent attack and to make sure his son will not lose his college place. But what exactly has his son done? And who is to blame? A young woman trying to make it in LA, working in a clothes shop while taking acting classes, turns to a riskier way of making money but will be forced to confront the danger of the game she’s playing. And a family coming together for Christmas struggle to skate over the lingering darkness caused by the very ordinary brutality of a troubled husband and father. These outstanding stories examine masculinity, male power and broken relationships, while revealing – with astonishing insight and clarity – those moments of misunderstanding that can have life-changing consequences. And there is an unexpected violence, ever-present but unseen, in the depiction of the complicated interactions between men and women, and families. Subtle, sophisticated and displaying an extraordinary understanding of human behaviour, these stories are unforgettable.

Emma Cline - The ​Girls
Northern ​California, during the violent end of the 1960s. At the start of summer, a lonely and thoughtful teenager, Evie Boyd, sees a group of girls in the park, and is immediately caught by their freedom, their careless dress, their dangerous aura of abandon. Soon, Evie is in thrall to Suzanne, a mesmerizing older girl, and is drawn into the circle of a soon-to-be infamous cult and the man who is its charismatic leader. Hidden in the hills, their sprawling ranch is eerie and run down, but to Evie, it is exotic, thrilling, charged—a place where she feels desperate to be accepted. As she spends more time away from her mother and the rhythms of her daily life, and as her obsession with Suzanne intensifies, Evie does not realize she is coming closer and closer to unthinkable violence.
