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."

In the fields of a forgotten post-war Sicily, an obsession with power was growing; Salvatore 'Totò' Riina, the shrewd peasant Corleone, became the boss of bosses and Palermo was conquered, one crime at a time. With his small army of assassins, he seized control of the most formidable mafia in the world and began an attack on the state: bombs, massacres and bloody conflicts initiated by a man who thought he was invincible. Until 1992 and the murders of Falcone and Borsellino. Then Riina was captured after nearly a quarter of a century on the run, an event still shrouded in controversy. Now in prison for over twenty years, Totò Riina remains the dictator of the Cosa Nostra from behind bars. Through the genuine testimony of the Sicilian Corleone, this a tale of desperate poverty, power and bloodshed - and one man's fight to rule supreme.

Combining a stunning lyrical intensity with a profound exploration of the human soul, Healing Earthquakes uses poetry to conjure a romance, from beginning to end. Jimmy Santiago Baca introduces us to a man and woman before they are acquainted and re-creates their first meeting, falling in love, their decision to make a family, the eventual realization of each other's irreconcilable faults, the resulting conflicts, the breakup and hostility, and, finally, their transcendence of the bitterness and resentment. Throughout the relationship we are privy to the couple's astonishing range of emotions: the anguish of loneliness, the heady rush of new love, the irritations and joys of raising children, the difficulties in truly knowing someone, the doldrums of breakup, and so on. It is impossible not to identify with these characters and to recognize one's own experience in theirs. As he weaves this story, Baca explores many of his traditional themes: the beauty and cruelty of the desert lands where he has spent much of his life, the grace and wisdom of animals, the quiet dignity of life on small Chicano farms. This is an extraordinary work from one of our finest poets.
