This lavishly illustrated book brings together, for the first time, all of the different ways in which vase-painting portrays or refers to pederasty, from scenes of courtship, foreplay, and sex, to scenes of Zeus with his boy-love Ganymede, to painted inscriptions praising the beauty of boys. The book shows how painters used the language of vase-painting to cast pederasty in an idealizing light, portraying it as part of a world in which beautiful elite males display praiseworthy attitudes, such as moderation, and engage in approved activities, such as hunting, athletics, and the symposium. The book also incorporates a comprehensive catalogue of relevant vase-paintings, compiled by noted archaeologist Keith DeVries. It is the most comprehensive treatment available of an institution that has few modern parallels.

London restaurant Trullo, and its baby sister, Padella, are taking the food world by storm with modern Italian recipes with a British twist. Whether it's a simple bowl of pasta or a full roast, chef Tim Siadatan takes the best of Italian cooking and marries it with British produce to create inventive and original dishes. Since he burst onto the scene as the youngest head chef at Jamie Oliver's Fifteen, Tim has become synonymous with bold Italian cooking. He doesn't slavishly recreate traditional dishes so much as cook food 'that makes you jump up and down in excitement as you smell it coming out of the oven.' His influences range from his training at St John and Moro restaurants, where he learnt the value of simple, delicious fare, to his childhood as one of six children, when eating is what brought the whole family together. Whether you want to make something special like rolled pork with nduja and prunes, or you simply want to nail the perfect delicious, silky and unctuous pasta sauce, it is all in Trullo.

Master storyteller and satirist Kurt Vonnegut was one of the most in-demand commencement speakers of his time. For each occasion, Vonnegut's words were unfailingly unique, insightful, and witty, and they stayed with audience members long after graduation. As edited by Dan Wakefield, this book reads like a narrative in the unique voice that made Vonnegut a hero to readers of all ages. At times hilarious, razor-sharp, freewheeling, and deeply serious, these reflections are ideal for anyone undergoing what Vonnegut would call their "long-delayed puberty ceremony"-marking the passage from student to full-time adult. This book makes the perfect gift for high school or college graduates-or for parents and grandparents who remember Vonnegut fondly and want to connect with him in a new context.
