Venezia, 11 febbraio 1883, ultimi tre giorni di vita di Wagner. Verdi è appena giunto in laguna per eseguire in segretezza la nuova ouverture dell'Otello. Wagner lo viene a sapere e gli chiede di assistere alla prova... da questo spunto fittizio prende l'avvio un racconto che immagina la nascita di una amicizia segreta tra i due massimi operisti dell'Ottocento, che nella realtà non si incontrarono mai.La vivace figura della contessa Clarina, l'erudito e compassato Tenca, il viscido giornalista Scafati, l'enigmatica Cosima, la passionale Stolz, l'umile Giuseppina e un giovane poeta esaltato di nome Gabriele sono i comprimari di questa storia che, attingendo più volte dall'epistolario di Verdi e dagli scritti di Wagner, vuole essere il pretesto per ragionare di musica, d'arte, d'amore e morte a Venezia, alternando momenti divertenti e riflessioni più serie.Originariamente pubblicato a puntate sul blog "marcopizziparalipomena" in occasione del bicentenario della nascita dei due compositori, Verdi contro Wagner viene qui raccolto in una versione riveduta e corretta.

Set in the 1870s, a time of social disorder in Russia, An Accidental Family is the story of Arkady Dolgoruky, an awkward, illegitimate twenty-year-old on a desperate search for his family. This new translation of Dostoevsky's last completed novel fully captures the raciness and youthful vigor of the original text, and expresses "the innermost spiritual world of someone on the eve of manhood at that tumultuous time."

LOLA's is London's most fashionable cupcake bakery. Victoria Jossel and Romy Lewis, the creators of the company, spent weeks testing cupcake recipes and experimenting with piping bags and sugar sprinkles to create the most beautiful and delicious cupcakes. At the end of 2006, LOLA's was born and their bakers have been baking and decorating fresh batches of simple, sophisticated, handcrafted cupcakes every day since then. Now you too can make cupcakes with LOLA with this irresistible cookbook. There are more than 60 mouth-watering recipes for everything from the LOLA signature flavours (including Vanilla, Peanut Butter, Red Velvet, Lemon and Rocky Road) to deliciously original ideas like Chocolate Sundae, Toffee Apple, Salted Caramel, Cappuccino Wafer, Mint Hot Chocolate and Mango Berry Swirl. Romy Lewis and Victoria Jossel grew up in the same area of London when their families moved from South Africa in the early '90s. LOLA's was set up in 2006 by Victoria (a former derivatives trader at Goldman Sachs) and Romy (a journalist), both in their twenties. Their online store is the busiest part of their business, and they have a flagship store in Mayfair and concessions in Selfridges, Topshop and Harrods.

Tempers are flaring around Zombillenium, the amusement park run by monsters. When one hires only the witches, vampires, werewolves, and other undead in a region where unemployment is in the double digits, one must expect some friction. But things get particularly ugly when the park’s security is breached from two sides: activists and a very strange visitor, the mother of two peculiar sons that the head of the park seems to remember from somewhere. Presented in Arthur de Pins’s trademark, tongue-in-cheek black humor, this is a stunning beautiful, fully painted graphic novel that plays on that traditional horror genre.
