Beyond that old stone wall, Tristran learns, lies Faerie—where nothing, not even a fallen star, is what he imagined. From #1 New York Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman comes a remarkable quest into the dark and miraculous—in pursuit of love and the utterly impossible.

Narrativa - racconto lungo (47 pagine) - Una nuova puntata del nostro viaggio nei fatidici cinque anni del liceo, in quell’età balorda in cui non si è né carne, né pesce, in cui tutto sembra insormontabile ma anche mitico e ricco di aspettative. Un unico viaggio. Cinque anni. Una moltitudine di personaggi. Una sola protagonista. Eccoci alla quarta superiore... La quarta superiore è una sorta di annus horribilis. Fabiana dovrà affrontare, come mai prima d’ora, perdite importanti e grandi delusioni. Un grave lutto in famiglia che la destabilizzerà, incomprensioni con le amiche di sempre, Becky che le rompe costantemente le uova nel paniere e Anthony che... Anthony che... be', sì insomma, qualche problema lo dà, sempre e comunque: la sua vita in Inghilterra, seppure a distanza, continua a essere motivo di intralcio nella sua storia con Ziggy e così, al culmine di una serata non proprio perfetta, dopo una pizza e un gelato... Ma tutto non è mai come sembra e questa volta pare proprio che Fabiana debba imparare una lezione molto importante. A questo si aggiunge l’arrivo di Klara, la nuova amica olandese: in classe è il momento dello scambio scolastico e nuove avventure arrivano a sconvolgere la vita di Ziggy. Cosa succederà in Olanda? Per quale motivo la figura di Klara è così enigmatica e misteriosa? Cosa si nasconde dietro quel sorriso dolce e quei grandi occhi azzurri?

Rock followed David Bowie into hotel rooms and dressing rooms, on the road and socialising with musicians and friends including Lou Reed, Iggy Pop and Mick Jagger. Also included are previously unseen images from the studio sessions for the Pin Ups records sleeve and the four pioneering music videos that Rock directed and filmed for Bowie.

When Ziggy played The Marquee Club in Soho, London, in October 1973, most of those invited to the small venue did not realise that this would be the last performance David Bowie would ever give as Ziggy Stardust. Terry O'Neill, celebrated photographer, was given unprecedented access to document the event. O'Neill captured Bowie and his crew backstage as they went through costume changes, and Bowie transformed into the character he'd soon put to rest. On stage, dodging television cameras and lights, O'Neill snapped the incredible stage presence for which Bowie and his crew had become renowned.

Together, the army of Joeys must battle evil magicians Lord Dogknife and Lady Indigo to keep the balance of power between all the earths stable. Teens—and tweens and adults—who obsessively read the His Dark Materials and Harry Potter series will be riveted by InterWorld and its sequel, The Silver Dream.

Awe and exhiliration--along with heartbreak and mordant wit--abound in Lolita, Nabokov's most famous and controversial novel, which tells the story of the aging Humbert Humbert's obsessive, devouring, and doomed passion for the nymphet Dolores Haze. Lolita is also the story of a hypercivilized European colliding with the cheerful barbarism of postwar America. Most of all, it is a meditation on love--love as outrage and hallucination, madness and transformation.

The storm was coming.... Shadow spent three years in prison, keeping his head down, doing his time. All he wanted was to get back to the loving arms of his wife and to stay out of trouble for the rest of his life. But days before his scheduled release, he learns that his wife has been killed in an accident, and his world becomes a colder place. On the plane ride home to the funeral, Shadow meets a grizzled man who calls himself Mr. Wednesday. A self-styled grifter and rogue, Wednesday offers Shadow a job. And Shadow, a man with nothing to lose, accepts. But working for the enigmatic Wednesday is not without its price, and Shadow soon learns that his role in Wednesday's schemes will be far more dangerous than he ever could have imagined. Entangled in a world of secrets, he embarks on a wild road trip and encounters, among others, the murderous Czernobog, the impish Mr. Nancy, and the beautiful Easter -- all of whom seem to know more about Shadow than he himself does. Shadow will learn that the past does not die, that everyone, including his late wife, had secrets, and that the stakes are higher than anyone could have imagined. All around them a storm of epic proportions threatens to break. Soon Shadow and Wednesday will be swept up into a conflict as old as humanity itself. For beneath the placid surface of everyday life a war is being fought -- and the prize is the very soul of America. As unsettling as it is exhilarating, American Gods is a dark and kaleidoscopic journey deep into myth and across an America at once eerily familiar and utterly alien. Magnificently told, this work of literary magic will haunt the reader far beyond the final page.
