El gran Gatsby A translation of The Great Gatsby

F. Scott Fitzgerald Illustrations by Jonny Ruzzo • Part of the Sexto Piso ilustrado series Considered to be one of the best American novels and perhaps the enduring symbol of the Jazz Age, the story of Jay Gatsby portrays a man who represents the best and the worst of the American Dream. His desire is to accumulate money and to spend it ostentatiously with the purpose of pursuing the one thing he really wants in life: the love of the beautiful but frivolous Daisy Buchanan. In this illustrated edition, Fitzgerald’s text is accompanied and reinterpreted by the talented American graphic artist Jonny Ruzzo. His magnificent illustrations build a visual and temporal bridge that modernizes the classic book and provides a new dimension that reinforces the undeniable applicability of one of the most read and celebrated novels of contemporary literature.

En esta edición ilustrada, el texto de Fitzgerald aparece acompañado y reinterpretado por el talentoso artista gráfico norteamericano Jonny Ruzzo. Sus magníficas ilustraciones tienden un puente tanto visual como temporal que actualiza el libro clásico y otorgan una nueva dimensión que tan sólo refuerza la innegable vigencia de una de las novelas más leídas y alabadas de la literatura contemporánea.

La compilación contiene 17 relatos, cada uno acompañado por una estupenda ilustración en blanco y negro. Jakob Grimm and Wilhelm Grimm were popular 19th-century German storytellers. They are credited with popularizing classic fairy tales such as Cinderella, Hansel and Gretel, and Little Red Riding Hood. Noemí Villamuza is an illustrator and a teacher.

Los matrimonios

El áloe

A translation of The Marriages

A translation of The Aloe

Henry James

Katherine Mansfield

Translated into Spanish for the first time, this Henry James novella is a wonderful example of the writer’s prose fiction, with character confrontations and plots that show the similarities and differences between social classes. The story, divided between the United States and Europe—much like James himself—presents the conflicts that arise in marriages, courtships, and familial relationships. As jealousy fuels the main character, Adela, to try to destroy her newly widowed father’s relationship with the ostentatious Mrs. Churchley, her brother Godfrey’s secret marriage falls apart.

Portraying the quandaries of colonial life in New Zealand through the story of one family’s move from Wellington to a small rural town, this masterful novella is partially autobiographical, and parts of it were incorporated into Mansfield’s acclaimed story “Prelude.” Though the Burnell family relocates a scant six miles from the city, the move is far from inconsequential; in fact, it causes a major disruption to their former way of life. A mysterious aloe plant and the slaughtering of a duck in their well-kept yard suggest that the family is concealing brutality and ignorance of another way of life that was rejected—that of the Maoris, the rightful owners of the colonized land. The novella describes the author’s sense of unease from belonging to the group of invaders.

Traducida al castellano por primera vez, esta novela corta de Henry James es un estupendo ejemplo de la narrativa del escritor, con enfrentamientos de personajes y argumentos en los que se muestran las diferencias y similitudes entre las clases sociales. La historia, a caballo entre los Estados Unidos y Europa como el propio James, presenta los conflictos que se producen en las relaciones matrimoniales, los noviazgos y las relaciones familiares. Mientras la envidia impulsa a la protagonista Adela a intentar destruir la relación entre su padre recién enviudado y la ostentosa señora Churchley, el matrimonio secreto de su hermano Godfrey se derrumba. Henry James was a novelist, a playwright, and a literary critic. He is regarded as one of the key figures of literary realism. His works include The Beast in the Jungle, The Portrait of a Lady, and The Turn of the Screw. FICTION/SPANISH: CLASSICS, 128 PAGES, 6 X 9 TRADE PAPER, $19.95 (CAN $21.95)

Dramatizando las disyuntivas de la vida colonial en Nueva Zelanda a través de la narración de la mudanza de una familia desde Wellington a un pueblo rural, esta magistral novela corta es parcialmente autobiográfica, y algunas partes de la obra se incorporaron en el cuento aclamado de Mansfield, “Preludio.” Aunque la familia Burnell se muda apenas a seis millas de la ciudad, el movimiento no es intrascendente; de hecho, provoca una ruptura con su anterior forma de vida. Una misteriosa planta de áloe y un pato sacrificado en su bien cuidado patio sugieren que la familia oculta la brutalidad y una ignorancia hacia otra forma de vida que fue negada—la de los maoríes, legítimos dueños de aquellas tierras colonizadas. La novela describe el desasosiego de la autora por su pertenencia a la casta de los invasores. Katherine Mansfield was a prominent modernist writer, widely considered to be one of the best short story writers of her era. She is best known for her stories “The Doll’s House,” “The Fly,” “The Garden Party,” and “Prelude.” FICTION/SPANISH: GENERAL, 110 PAGES, 4.75 X 7.5 TRADE PAPER, $16.95 (CAN $18.95)

La mesa de madera de manzano / Nochebuena Christmas Eve, a translation from the Russian El Paraíso de los solteros y Nikolái Gógol el Tártaro de las doncellas Translations of “The Apple-Tree Table” and “The Paradise of Bachelors and the Tartarus of Maids”

Herman Melville Presented together in this collection are two stories by Herman Melville: a satire on spiritualism that examines the conflicting impressions of the members of a family of a bug-infested table and a reflection on the contrast between the pleasant life of rich bachelors and the alienation of enslaved young women. In “The Apple-Tree Table,” strange sounds come from a table before 150-year-old bugs begin to emerge from it. “The Paradise of Bachelors and the Tartarus of Maids” points out the outrageous differences between two groups by juxtaposing the lavish dinner of a group of single men in London with a visit to a paper factory where young women toil under subhuman conditions. Presentados juntos en esta recopilación hay dos cuentos de Herman Melville: una sátira del espiritismo que examina las opiniones divididas de los miembros de una familia sobre una mesa infestada de insectos y una reflexión sobre el contraste entre la vida placentera de los ricos solteros y la alienación de las jóvenes esclavizadas. En “La mesa de madera de manzano,” una mesa emite un extraño crujido antes de que insectos de 150 años emanen de ella. “El Paraíso de los solteros y el Tártaro de las doncellas” muestra las inauditas diferencias entre dos grupos, yuxtaponiendo una cena pantagruélica con solteros en Londres con una visita a una fábrica de papel en la que trabajan mujeres jóvenes en condiciones infrahumanas. Herman Melville was a novelist, a short story writer, and a poet. He is the author of Billy Budd and Moby Dick, among other works. FICTION/SPANISH: CLASSICS, 112 PAGES, 4.75 X 7.75 TRADE PAPER, $14.95 (CAN $16.95)

A surreal, magical world serves as the backdrop for an eternal struggle between good and evil in Nikolai Gogol’s tale that centers on a young man’s love and quest for the most beautiful woman in his Ukrainian village. On Christmas Eve in the idyllic town of Dikanka, beautiful yet arrogant Oksana offers her heart to whoever can get her the czarina’s slippers, and Vakula, the town’s blacksmith, enlists the help of the devil—who holds a grudge against him for painting unflattering portraits of him in the church—to retrieve the slippers from Saint Petersburg. The book vividly portrays Ukrainian folklore and typical customs and culture from Gogol’s era. Un mundo surrealista y mágico sirve como telón de fondo para una lucha eterna entre el bien y el mal en este cuento de Nikolái Gógol que se centra en el amor de un muchacho por la mujer más bella de su pueblito ucraniano y su misión de ganarla. En la última noche antes de la Navidad en la idílica aldea de Dikanka, la bella pero altiva Oksana le ofrece su corazón a quien pueda conseguirle los zapatos de la zarina, y Vakula, el herrero del pueblo, contrata la ayuda del demonio—quien le guarda rencor por pintar retratos poco favorecedores de él en la iglesia—para conseguir los zapatos de San Petersburgo. El libro vívidamente retrata el folclore ucraniano y las típicas tradiciones y culturas de la época de Gógol.

Nikolái Gógol was one of the leading figures in 19th-century Russian literature and the founder of critical realism. He is best known for his satirical masterpiece Dead Souls and humorous plays and short stories such as “The Government Inspector” and “The Overcoat.” FICTION/SPANISH: CLASSICS, 128 PAGES, 4.75 X 7.5 TRADE PAPER, $16.95 (CAN $18.95)

Respirar por la herida

Escuela de rebeldía

Seeing Red

The School of Rebellion

Víctor del Árbol

Salvador Seguí

With a well-concocted plot and an atmosphere of intense pain and guilt, this novel pushes the main characters’ limits with precision and psychology. Perhaps God rolls the dice with destiny; or maybe it’s chance that snatches from people that which they love most; or it could be that everything that happens is simply the result of people’s actions. These are the thoughts that torment Eduardo, a painter for whom nothing makes sense anymore after the death of his wife and daughter. Nothing, that is, until a famous cellist gives him the biggest challenge of his life: to paint the portrait of a man of an uncertain past. With each brush stroke, Eduardo opens doors that were meant to stay shut—doors which, once open, can never be closed again.

Published 20 days after the assassination of its author—upon whose life it is based—this novel narrates the life, loves, and hopes of a young laborer in Catalonia during the first decades of the 20th century. Between 1914 and 1921 the number of laborers murdered in Barcelona by employers reached 523, and in 1923 General Primo de Rivera established a dictatorship and banned the National Federation of Labor, brutally repressing it. This is the setting for this tragic and revealing novel, in which death bears the mark of extreme right-wing gunmen, largely funded by Catalonian businesses. This book is a gripping read as well as an enlightening document on pre-Civil War Spain.

Con una trama bien urdida y un ambiente de dolor y culpa descarnada, esta novela desborda los límites de sus protagonistas con precisión y psicología. Quizás Dios juega a los dados con el destino; o tal vez sea el azar el que les arrebate a las personas aquello que más aman; o puede que todo lo que ocurre sea simplemente el resultado de los actos de la gente. Estos son los pensamientos que atormentan a Eduardo, un pintor para quien nada tiene sentido tras la muerte de su mujer y su hija. Nada, es decir, hasta que una famosa violoncelista le encarga el mayor reto de su vida: pintar el retrato de un hombre de pasado incierto. Con cada pincelada, Eduardo abre puertas que habría sido mejor mantener cerradas—puertas que, una vez abiertas, nunca podrán volver a estar cerradas.

Publicada 20 días después del asesinato de su autor—en cuya vida está basada—esta novela narra la vida, los amores y los anhelos de un joven obrero en la Cataluña de las primeras décadas del siglo XX. Entre 1914 y 1921 el número de obreros asesinados en Barcelona por la patronal ascendió a 523, y en 1923 el general Primo de Rivera estableció la dictadura y prohibió la Confederación Nacional del Trabajo, reprimiéndola ferozmente. En este ambiente se desarrolla la trama de esta trágica y reveladora novela, donde la muerte tiene el sello de los pistoleros de la extrema derecha, pagados en gran parte de la patronal catalana. Este libro es una lectura absorbente al igual que un documento esclarecedor sobre España en los años antes de la Guerra Civil española.

Víctor del Árbol is a novelist and a 20-year veteran of the Police of the Generalitat of Catalonia. He is the author of El abismo de los sueños, El peso de los muertos, and La tristeza del samurái, which won the 2012 European Crime Fiction Prize for best noir novel of the year.

Salvador Seguí was one of the leaders of the Catalan anarcho-syndicalist movement in Barcelona during the early 20th century who believed in the education of the working class and opposed paramilitary action. He was assassinated in 1923 by gunmen working for a government-protected Catalan employers’ organization.

Los estratos

La transmigración de los cuerpos

The Strata

The Transmigration of Bodies

Juan Cárdenas

Yuri Herrera

Far from the preexisting models that deal with the realities of Latin America with a stark, apocalyptic realism or a trivial celebration of the exotic, this novel is radical support for literature devoted to writing, understood to mean the transformation of the everyday experience and as a reflection on the way in which personal, social, and historical stories are constructed. Through one voice constantly interrupted by many others, it tells the story of a man besieged by the need to reconstruct a vague memory from his childhood, while essential elements of his private life collapse with each passing day. The book is a philosophical exploration of the peculiar forms of desire typical of late capitalism in a society as unequal and contradictory as Colombia’s in the beginning of the 21st century.

“Herrera shows promising signs of narrative conviction, precise and careful writing, a refined ear for group speech, and a marked poetic will.” —El Mundo on Trabajos del reino

Lejos de los modelos preestablecidos que abordan las realidades de América Latina desde el tremendismo apocalíptico o la banal celebración de lo exótico, esta novela es una apuesta radical por una literatura apegada a la escritura, entendida como la transformación de la experiencia cotidiana y como reflexión sobre la manera en que se construyen los relatos personales, sociales e históricos. A través de una voz intervenida constantemente por muchas otras, cuenta la historia de un hombre asediado por la necesidad de reconstruir un recuerdo impreciso de su infancia, mientras los elementos esenciales de su vida privada se desmoronan con el paso de cada día. El libro es una exploración filosófica de las particulares formas del deseo propias del capitalismo tardío en una sociedad tan desigual y contradictoria como la colombiana de comienzos del siglo XXI. Juan Cárdenas is a literary critic, a translator, and a writer. He is the author of Carreras delictivas and Zumbido. FICTION/SPANISH: GENERAL, 200 PAGES, 5.25 X 8.25 TRADE PAPER, $21.95 (CAN $24.95)

La estrategia del pequinés

La fiesta

The Pekingese Strategy

The Party

Alexis Ravelo

Luis Gutiérrez Maluenda

• Author’s previous books sold more than 10,000 copies

In this noir novel rife with suspense, a girl is stabbed to death in the first-floor laundry room of a building that also hosts a blowout party. Now, four unrelated characters find themselves caught up in the circumstances surrounding the murder, and as each recounts their experiences from that night, the reader is exposed to unique and occasionally contradictory interpretations of the event. And when the truth is finally revealed, it leads to a shocking and wholly unexpected climax.

Humor and everyday characters meld in this high-voltage mystery novel in which the important question is not who the killer is, but rather who will be the next to die. Blondie gave up crime decades ago, but his wife’s serious illness has him reconsidering a proposal from Junior, a local cocaine dealer, to rob the front his bosses maintain in Gran Canaria. It won’t be difficult to rope in Palmera, a man long unemployed, and Cora, a high-end escort keenly aware of her fading charms, for the robbery. The strategy of the Pekingese dog is to take advantage of its foe’s slip-ups in order to attack and escape, and the protagonists follow suit when they find themselves immersed in a wild chase that leaves a bloody trail. El humor y los personajes del día a día se combinan en esta novela negra de alto voltaje en la que lo importante no es saber quién es el asesino, sino quién será el próximo en morir. El Rubio dejó de delinquir hace décadas, pero la grave enfermedad de su esposa le hace replantearse una proposición de Júnior, un distribuidor local de cocaína, de atracar al testaferro de sus jefes en Gran Canaria. No le costará seducir a Palmera, un parado de larga duración, y a Cora, una prostituta de lujo quien sospecha cercano el momento en el que se esfumen sus encantos, para participar en el asalto. La estrategia del pequinés es mostrarse fiero y aprovechar cualquier despiste del adversario para atacar y huir, y los protagonistas harán eso cuando se encuentran inmersos en una persecución frenética que deja un rastro sangriento. Alexis Ravelo writes detective novels, short stories, flash fiction, and children’s books and runs writing workshops. He is the author of Ceremonias de interior, Los días de mercurio, La noche de piedra, Los perros de agosto, and Tres funerales para Eladio Monroy.

El Príncipe Pito

El rapto de Britney Spears

Lo esencial es evidente a los ojos, para quien quiere ver

The Kidnapping of Britney Spears, a translation from the French of Le ravissement de Britney Spears

Prince Prick: What Is Essential Is Visible to the Eye, for Those Who Want to See

Jean Rolin Translated by Luisa Feliu

Pablo Perel A philosophical fable that parodies and questions—and in turn goes beyond the proposals of—Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s The Little Prince, this light, humorous story is channeled through the main character’s penis, which becomes a key character with which the protagonist has conversations throughout the book. When Adam and Eve are expelled from Eden for acting in collusion, the union of the genders is broken, splitting into two worlds separated by competition, submission, and lack of understanding. A young man sinks into desolation until Prince Prick appears to turn his heart upside-down, stripping down all at once religion, sex, war, love, and the existence of the soul. Una fábula filosófica que parodia y cuestiona—y a su vez va más allá del planteamiento de—El Principito de Antoine de SaintExupéry, este relato ágil y humorístico se canaliza por el pene del personaje principal, el cual se convierte en un personaje clave con el que dialoga el protagonista a lo largo del libro. Cuando Adán y Eva son expulsados del Edén por actuar en complicidad, la unión de los géneros se quiebra y se escinde en dos mundos aislados por la competencia, el sometimiento y la incomprensión. Un hombre joven se hunde en la desolación hasta que aparece el Príncipe Pito para darle la vuelta a su corazón, desnudando al mismo tiempo la religión, el sexo, la guerra, el amor y la existencia del alma. Pablo Perel is a writer, a teacher, a lecturer, a musician, a screenwriter, a producer, and a director of film, TV, theater, and opera productions. He is the owner of the film production company FilmBeat and is a national content advisor for Argentina Digital Television.

When Britney Spears begins receiving threats from an alleged Islamic sect, the French secret service sends one of its own to Los Angeles to investigate. At first blush, the agent in question doesn’t seem to be the most qualified: he doesn’t drive, isn’t interested at all in the entertainment industry, and suffers from a nervous condition. However, he does everything in his power to get himself up to date quickly: he infiltrates the world of the paparazzi, frequents Sunset Boulevard and Rodeo Drive, and becomes an expert on Britney Spears and on the city’s public transportation system. Using the famous singer and a comical detective as a starting point, the author offers his own satirical take on famous people who are known more for their excesses and private lives than for their work. Cuando Britney Spears recibe amenazas de un supuesto grupúsculo islamista, los servicios secretos franceses envían a Los Ángeles a uno de sus hombres para investigar el asunto. Así a primera vista, el agente en cuestión no parece el más adecuado: no conduce, ignora todo sobre la farándula y sufre de una condición de los nervios. Sin embargo, hace todo lo posible para ponerse al día rápidamente: se introduce en el mundo de los paparazzi, frecuenta Sunset Boulevard y Rodeo Drive y se convierte en un especialista en Britney Spears y en la red de transporte público de la ciudad. A partir de la figura de la popular cantante y de un cómico detective, el autor ofrece su particular visión satírica de unos famosos que son más conocidos por sus excesos o sus vidas privadas que por su trabajo.

Isabella: From Child to Queen, a translation from the German of Ich, Die Königin

Fernando Riquelme

Susan Hastings Faithfully portraying life at the time—the country’s political and moral corruption, the aristocracy, the Church, the horrors of the Inquisition, the discovery of America, the expulsion of Jewish citizens, and the unification of the kingdoms of Castile and Aragon—this novel provides a portrait of Queen Isabella I of Castile, a unique woman who was fundamental to the history of Spain. In 1464 the kingdom of Castile is in chaos: bandits terrorize travelers and merchants and the nobility and the clergy make themselves richer at the expense of the starving populace, but King Henry IV is too weak to restore order. When his enemies succeed in assassinating him, the specter of a war of succession looms over Castile until his sister Isabella imposes herself, becoming a legend in Spain’s history.

IPG – FALL 2013

In the not-too-distant-future, in a country mired in an economic and social crisis, at a time when thousands of unemployed people crowd into tents in front of corporate offices and incredibly long lines form in welfare offices and social care centers, the system continues to find ways to exploit the weak for the benefit of a privileged few in this compelling novel. But in the face of a group of unscrupulous financiers and politicians united by the same interest in dominating and controlling society, an anarchist movement is born out of spontaneous rebellious groups and gains popular support. Three women in particular face off against those in power in the midst of the biggest economic crisis in Spain’s history, one that has surpassed all expectations and in which most citizens suffer due to decisions made for the benefit of the most powerful few.

Reproduciendo fielmente las condiciones de vida de la época—la corrupción política y moral del país, la aristocracia, la Iglesia, los horrores de la Inquisición, el descubrimiento de América, la expulsión de los judíos y la unificación de las Coronas de Castilla y Aragón—esta novela retrata a la reina Isabel I de Castilla, una mujer singular y fundamental en la historia de España. En 1464 el reino de Castilla se encuentra en una situación caótica: los bandidos tiranizan a viajeros y a comerciantes y la nobleza y el clero se enriquecen a costa del hambriento pueblo, pero el rey Enrique es demasiado blando para poder restablecer el orden. Cuando sus enemigos logran asesinarle, el espectro de una guerra de sucesión se cierne sobre Castilla hasta que su hermana Isabel logra imponerse, llegando a convertirse en leyenda de la historia española.

En un futuro cercano, en un país convulso por la crisis económica y social, mientras miles de parados se apiñan en tiendas de campaña frente a las principales instituciones y larguísimas colas se forman en las oficinas de empleo y centros de atención social, el sistema sigue consiguiendo maneras de explotar a los débiles para generar más riqueza para unos pocos en esta absorbente novela. Pero frente a un grupo de financieros y políticos sin escrúpulos unidos por el mismo interés de dominar y controlar la sociedad, un movimiento antisistema nace de los grupos espontáneos de indignados y goza de apoyo popular. Tres mujeres en particular se enfrentan al poder en el marco de la peor crisis económica de la historia de España, una que ha desbordado todas las expectativas y en la que muchos ciudadanos sufren por los manejos en favor de los intereses financieros y políticos de los más poderosos.

IPG – FALL 2013

Art history scholar Imma Julián discusses a wide range of topics with the great Spanish painter Antoni Tàpies in this collection of candid dialogues that takes readers into the artist’s mind. The conversations span the period from the mid-1970s to recent times and center on experiences and personal and shared memories from the dramatic postwar years to the arrival of democracy in Spain. What emerges is a portrait of a man who, despite having achieved international acclaim and success, was wholly dedicated to representing the humblest urban landscape, searching his surroundings and within himself for the elements necessary to communicate with his contemporaries through a unique and highly individualistic language. La erudita de la historia del arte Imma Julián conversa con el gran pintor español Antoni Tàpies acerca de una amplia gama de temas en esta recopilación de diálogos cándidos que adentra al lector en la mente del artista. Las conversaciones abarcan el periodo desde mediados de los años 70 hasta fechas recientes y se centran en vivencias y recuerdos personales o compartidos desde los dramáticos años de la posguerra hasta la llegada de la democracia a España. Lo que emerge es un retrato de un hombre que, a pesar de haber logrado la aclamación y el éxito internacional, estaba completamente dedicado a la representación del paisaje urbano más humilde, buscando a su alrededor y dentro de sí mismo los elementos necesarios para la comunicación con sus contemporáneos a través de un lenguaje único y personalísimo. Imma Julián is the head of the art history department at the University of Barcelona, a board member of the Museum of Contemporary Spanish Engravings in Marbella, and an art critic.

Damned Blue Planet

An imaginative extension of contemporary Latin American fiction, this graphic novel touches on universal themes—death, friendship, love, and others—from a uniquely feminine perspective. On her surreal adventures, the protagonist encounters a ghost in the house, time travel, snow that bears a striking resemblance to lemon ice cream, and even a meeting with Death. Some panels include dialogue, while others forgo it for a purely visual impact. In either case, the witty and tender narrative injects magic and innocence into a world of danger and wonder, and encourages readers to overcome adversity with humor and a positive frame of mind. Una extensión imaginativa de la narrativa latinoamericana contemporánea, esta novela gráfica abarca temas universales— la muerte, la amistad, el amor y otros—desde una perspectiva singularmente femenina. En sus aventuras surrealistas, la protagonista se encuentra con un fantasma en la casa, un viaje en el tiempo, nieve que tiene una apariencia muy parecida a la del helado de limón y hasta a la Muerte. Algunas de las viñetas incluyen diálogo, otras lo renuncian a favor de un impacto puramente visual. En ambos casos, la narrativa ingeniosa y tierna introduce la magia e inocencia en un mundo de peligro y maravillas y anima al lector a superar la adversidad con humor y de buen talante.

Joni b The highbrow and lowbrow collide in unique and surprising ways in this graphic novel collection of four genre-mixing stories as funny as they are exemplary. The styles are merged in a masterful way—Latin American dictators blend with science fiction, comedy with gore—but youth boredom and the desire for happiness rise above all else. A smoking, drinking Superman who seems to be more a result of dirty realism than magic realism; bored teenagers who entertain themselves by killing zombies or who flee to Earth on their way to Mars; post-adolescent love and rites of passage; and a combination of sadness and action fill the pages of this book. La alta y la baja cultura chocan de un modo único y sorprendente en esta recopilación de cuatro historias tan divertidas como ejemplarizantes que mezclan géneros. Los estilos se funden de manera magistral—dictadores latinoamericanos combinan con la ciencia ficción, la comedia con lo sangriento—pero encima de todo se alzan el tedio juvenil y el anhelo de felicidad. Un Supermán fumador y borracho que parece más fruto del realismo sucio que del realismo mágico; jóvenes aburridos que se entretienen matando zombis o que huyen de la Tierra camino de Marte; el amor post-adolescente y los ritos de paso; y una combinación de melancolía y acción llenan las páginas de este libro.

Maco is a graphic novelist and a cartoonist. She is the author of the comics “Fedra” and “Radiobujada.”

Michael Bird Demonstrating how new developments in various materials—oilbased paint, plastics, paint tubes—and technology—paper, photography, welding—have radically changed the way art is produced, this illuminating book draws parallels between those changes and others that have occurred within a wider cultural framework. The study of optics and anatomy, for example, as well as more conceptual concerns, such as chance and ephemerality, are all discussed as ideas that have influenced art throughout its history, from the Paleolithic Age through ancient civilizations, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, and into modern times. Demostrando cómo nuevos desarrollos en diferentes materiales— óleos, plásticos, tubos de pintura—y tecnologías—el papel, la fotografía, la soldadura—han cambiado radicalmente la manera en la cual se produce el arte, este libro revelador dibuja paralelos entre esos cambios y otros que han ocurrido dentro de un marco cultural más amplio. Por ejemplo, el estudio de la óptica y la anatomía, además de temas más conceptuales tales como el azar y lo efímero, son discutidos como ideas que han influenciado el arte a lo largo de su historia, desde la época paleolítica y a través de las civilizaciones antiguas, la Edad Media y el Renacimiento hasta la época moderna. Michael Bird is an art historian, a freelance writer, and a broadcaster who specializes in the visual arts. He is the author of Bryan Wynter, Sandra Blow, and The St Ives Artists.

Whatever the case, readers will be captivated by these tales of legendary deeds, bloody battles, and great tragedies.

Focused primarily on Greek and Roman mythology, this reference also includes brief examinations of legends from the Egyptian, German, Hindu, and Norse cultures, detailing the deeds of deities from many global traditions. Photographs of some of the most important works of art in which these gods and goddesses are depicted are also included, accompanied by notes that describe and explain them.

Lluís Duch Describing the increasing importance of the media as a means of communicating religious doctrine, this book contends that the way information is disseminated is nearly as vital as the message itself. The author argues that religions do not effectively communicate their beliefs and that religious communities suffer from a lack of quality of their broadcasts. The examination explores the concept of tradition, the importance of symbols, the difference between information and communication, the crisis of confidence in religious institutions, the diminishment of the sacred, and the revolution of belief. The future of religion depends on a direct manner of communication and appropriate contextualization, and this book provides necessary information for reaching out to believers. Describiendo la creciente importancia de los medios de comunicación para comunicar la doctrina religiosa, este libro sostiene que la manera en que la información se disemina es casi tan vital como el propio mensaje. El autor arguye que religiones no transmiten efectivamente sus creencias y que las comunidades religiosas sufren por falta de calidad de sus transmisiones. El análisis explora el concepto de tradición, la importancia de símbolos, la diferencia entre información y comunicación, la crisis de confianza en las instituciones religiosas, la erosión de lo sagrado y la revolución de lo creíble. El futuro de la religión depende de un modo directo de la comunicación y una oportuna contextualización, y este libro proporciona la información necesaria para alcanzar a los creyentes. Lluís Duch is an author, a translator, an anthropologist, a theologian, a Montserrat monk, and a former professor. He has written more than 50 books, including Antropología de la religión, Un extraño en nuestra casa, and numerous volumes in the Antropología de la vida cotidiana series.

Buddhism: A Historical and Philosophical Perspective

Jean-Jacques Lafaye Translated by Josep Forment Through articles, correspondence, manifestos, and fragments from his autobiography, Stefan Zweig clearly and forcefully demonstrates his position as a Jew and his own way of understanding Judaism in this collection, augmented by descriptions and analyses from Jean-Jacques Lafaye. The book delves into one of the most decisive aspects of the prolific writer’s thoughts and life, and Zweig’s writings show his passion for human beings and his argument that to be Jewish is nothing more than a form of humanism and a universal way of being—a spiritual and cultural claim rather than a reductive hypothesis. A través de artículos, correspondencia, manifiestos y fragmentos concretos de su autobiografía, Stefan Zweig demuestra de manera clara y contundente su posición como judío y su propia forma de entender el judaísmo en esta recopilación, aumentada por descripciones y análisis de Jean-Jacques Lafaye. El libro ahonda en uno de los aspectos más decisivos del pensamiento y de la vida del escritor prolífico, y los escritos de Zweig muestra su pasión por el ser humano y su argumento de que ser judío no es otra cosa que una forma de humanismo y un modo de ser universal—una reivindicación espiritual y cultural más que un postulado reductor. Jean-Jacques Lafaye is a French author and journalist who frequently contributes to the Parisian political magazine Politique Internationale, as well as the Spanish daily ABC. He is the author of 12 vidas para la música: de Bach a Rachmaninov and Una vida de Stefan Zweig: Nostalgias europeas. Josep Forment is an editor, a poet, a translator, and a writer.

Miguel Rodríguez de Peñaranda Using the central concept of dependent origination—the belief that nothing exists independently of other things—as a springboard, this study explores the myriad interpretations of this teaching throughout Buddhism’s long history. In addition to an unprecedented examination of the original intention of this concept in the philosophical and spiritual context of fifth-century India, the author also discusses little-known or poorly interpreted events in the subsequent evolution of Buddhism, including the earliest councils and schisms within the religion and the development of Mahayana Buddhism, the largest current major tradition in Buddhism. The book ends with several reflections on the possible role Buddhism can play in modern-day society, basing itself on the ideas of contemporary philosophers. Tomando como punto de partida el concepto central de la originación dependiente—la creencia que nada existe independientemente de otras cosas—este estudio explora el gran número de interpretaciones de esta enseñanza a lo largo de la larga historia del budismo. Aparte de una clarificación sin precedentes de la intención original de este concepto en el contexto de la filosofía y espiritualidad india del siglo V a. C., el autor recorre episodios poco conocidos o no siempre bien interpretados de la historia posterior, incluyendo los primeros concilios y cismas dentro de la religión y el desarrollo del mahayana, la principal tradición actual del budismo. El libro termina con unas reflexiones acerca del posible papel del budismo en la sociedad moderna a partir de las ideas de filósofos contemporáneos. Miguel Rodríguez de Peñarada is a Spanish writer and the author of several books of poems, as well as La gran alternativa, which discusses the relationship between philosophy and poetry.

Luz sobre los yoga sutras de Patanjali A translation of Light on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali (9780007145164)

Jacques Attali

B. K. S. Iyengar Preface by Yehudi Menuhin

An exhaustive biography of the man still considered the conscience of the nation of India, this exploration of Mohandas Gandhi’s life stretches from his childhood among the Gujarati merchants, through his time as a student in England, his years as a lawyer in South Africa, and his return to the Indian subcontinent and subsequent anticolonialist and nonviolent activities, to, ultimately, his assassination in 1948. Attali avoids both hagiography and hatchet job, presenting rather an objective, complete portrait of a man who has influenced leaders but who was not without his own weaknesses and contradictions.

Written by Patanjali more than 2,000 years ago, this collection of sutras is the earliest and most revered holy reference on the practice of yoga, containing nearly 200 aphorisms filled with wisdom on the practice. In this expanded edition, renowned yoga instructor B. K. S. Iyengar translates the sutras from the original Sanskrit and provides his own insightful commentary for the modern reader. Readers learn how they can transform themselves through the practice of yoga, gradually developing their body, emotions, and mind to become spiritually evolved.

Un biografía exhaustiva del hombre todavía considerado como la conciencia de la nación de la India, esta exploración de la vida de Mohandas Gandhi abarca el periodo desde su infancia entre los comerciantes de Gujarat, pasando por sus estudios en Inglaterra, sus años de abogado en Sudáfrica y su regreso al subcontinente indio y subsiguiente acción anticolonial y no violenta, hasta llegar, finalmente, a su asesinato en 1948. Attali cae ni en la adulación ni en la crítica destructiva, presentando más bien un retrato objetivo y completo de un hombre que influyó líderes pero que también tenía sus faltas y contradicciones. Jacques Attali is a French civil servant, an economist, and a writer. He is a former adviser to French president François Mitterand, the founder of the nonprofit PlaNet Finance, and the first president of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development. He has had more than 50 books published, both fiction and nonfiction. BIOGRAPHY, 424 PAGES, 6 X 9.25 19 B & W PHOTOS, 3 MAPS TRADE PAPER, $44.95 (CAN $49.95)

We Are Quantum Energy: The Quantum Secret and the Awakening of the Energies

Karen L. French

Jorge Blaschke

Delving deep into the nature of reality, this book looks at the amazing process of creation to show how simple shapes and numbers, operating as universal principles through such phenomena as sound and light, create all the infinite forms of life. The beginning of the book focuses on numbers and shapes, explaining that geometry is implicated at every level in the nature of matter itself, and the middle describes how sound and light come into play. The final part draws together all of these themes to show how this enhanced understanding of the nature of reality and creation can offer readers a gateway to new levels of awareness.

This remarkable analysis examines the link between quantum physics and spiritual perception and describes a revolutionary method of harnessing energy to reach health, personal, and social objectives. Using a practical approach that combines the classic and latest trends in personal development, this useful examination includes a number of practical exercises that explain how to awaken energy, understand the world, and change ways of thinking.

Indagando profundamente en la naturaleza de la realidad, este libro explora el impresionante proceso de la creación para mostrar cómo simples formas y números, operando como principios universales mediante fenómenos como el sonido y la luz, crean todas las formas infinitas de la vida. El inicio del libro se enfoca sobre los números y las formas, explicando cómo la geometría está implicada a cada nivel de la naturaleza de la materia misma, y en el medio se describe cómo el sonido y la luz entran en juego. La última parte une todos estos temas para mostrar cómo este entendimiento realzado de la naturaleza de la realidad y de la creación puede ofrecerle al lector una entrada a nuevos niveles de conocimiento.

Corine Allouch and Clara Basteh

Susanna Mann

In this collection of true stories, 23 women narrate their wildest erotic adventures. Maïna Lecherbonier likes associating scandal with pleasure, Sophie Cadalen is skilled at erotic games, and Françoise Rey allows herself everything in a summer garden. Through the array of contributors’ experiences, readers see that any everyday situation can become a moment of extreme sexuality.

Exploring the road to pleasure through 50 techniques related to sadomasochism, from the tamest to the wildest, this book considers a world that transcends the merely sexual in order to reach a higher plane where the lines between tenderness, sadism, and romance are blurred. The author has traveled to dozens of clubs around Europe in order to collect some of the most debauched practices and fantasies being enacted, and she offers readers a journey through BDSM that is as much a sharing of sexual techniques as it is a narration of female sexual confessions. From fetishism to anal sex, from biting and scratching to whipping, from anal games to multiple orgasms, and from Turkish delights to electrosex, this guide to the world of sadomasochism is indispensable for anyone looking to explore new frontiers in the bedroom.

Awakening the Bipolar Gift: A Path Toward Recovery from Emotional Instability

Eduardo H. Grecco Prologue by José Luis Cabouli An enlightened and unique approach to bipolar therapy, this analysis argues that, rather than using external tools and methods to find equilibrium between mania and depression, a more effective therapeutic approach focuses on the patient’s talents and innate strengths. The author advocates for a multidisciplinary treatment for bipolar disorder, one that makes use of the patient’s creativity, body movement, and emotional ties. The vision of psychopathology that is presented is an overwhelmingly positive one that will be of use for both patients as well as therapists. Una perspectiva cultivada y única hacia la terapia para la bipolaridad, este análisis arguye que, en vez de usar métodos y herramientas externas para conseguir un equilibrio entre la manía y la depresión, es mejor un enfoque terapéutico que se centra en los talentos y las fuerzas autocurativas interiores del paciente. El autor propone un tratamiento multidisciplinario para afrontar la bipolaridad que apela a la creatividad, al movimiento del cuerpo y a los vínculos afectivos. Se trata de una visión sumamente positiva de la psicopatología que será de gran utilidad tanto para los pacientes como para terapeutas. Eduardo H.

Entendiendo a la pareja Marcos teóricos para el trabajo terapéutico Understanding the Couple: Theoretical Frameworks for Therapy

Compiled by Luz de Lourdes Eguiluz Using the theoretical approaches that have guided their practices as a springboard, eight Latin-American therapists review the changes in behavioral patterns between men and women that have taken place in recent years, as well as what it means to be a therapist in the modern day. Among the topics explored in this book are the patriarchal and matriarchal histories of couples in Mexican society, spirituality in the development of the marital relationship, lust and love in a narcissistic postmodernity, overcoming the crisis of infidelity, new ways of living as a couple, and the help that a therapist can provide. This book proves to be an invaluable resource for couples looking to better their understanding of themselves, as well as for the therapists that seek to help them. Usando como punto de partida los enfoques teóricos que han guiado su práctica, ocho terapeutas latinoamericanos revisan tanto los cambios en los patrones de relación de hombres y mujeres que han ocurrido en los últimos años así como lo que significa ser terapeuta en la actualidad. Entre los temas explorados en este libro se encuentran las historias patriarcal y matriarcal de la pareja en la sociedad mexicana, la espiritualidad en el crecimiento de la relación conyugal, el enamoramiento y el amor en una posmodernidad narcisista, la superación de la crisis de infidelidad, las nuevas formas de vida en pareja y la ayuda que puede ofrecer un terapeuta. Este libro resulta un recurso invaluable tanto para la pareja que busca mejorar su comprensión de sí misma como para el terapeuta que busca ayudarle.

¿Qué podemos hacer para evitar Ante el suicidio Su comprensión y tratamiento el suicidio? Facing Suicide: Understanding and Treating It What Can We Do to Prevent Suicide?

Luz de Lourdes Eguiluz

Luz de Lourdes Eguiluz, Martha Hermelinda Córdova, and José Carlos Rosales

Included in this invaluable book is the work of several investigators and therapists who study suicide within their different specialties in order to learn what can be done to prevent it. These specialists seek action for the attention to, prevention of, and treatment for suicide, an act that, as a result of multiple investigations on the topic, is now understood to be not a simple action, but a collection of behaviors. Due to the fact that suicidal behavior is comprised of a variety of factors—biological, cultural, economic, genetic, political, social, psychological, and psychiatric—studying suicide requires one or several interdisciplinary approaches, some of which are explored in the indispensable resource.

Different types of studies—historical, psychosocial, theoretical, and case studies—which seek to delve into analyzing and finding solutions for the multiple motivations that lead to suicide make up this illuminating book. Its collaborators, all of them dedicated to a different discipline and committed to the study and confrontation of the problem of suicide, seek to understand it and learn how to respond to it in an opportune, professional, and serious manner. With the authors’ help and the studies they present, readers will learn how to better face suicide, whether in their own lives or while trying to help their loved ones.

Incluido en este valioso libro está el trabajo de varios investigadores y terapeutas que desde sus distintas especialidades estudian el suicidio para saber qué se puede hacer para prevenirlo. Estos especialistas buscan acciones para la atención, prevención y tratamiento del suicidio, un acto que, como resultado de múltiples investigaciones realizadas sobre el tema, se entiende hoy no como una acción simple, sino como una agrupación de comportamientos. Al estar el comportamiento suicida conformado por una diversidad de factores—biológicos, culturales, económicos, genéticos, políticos, sociales, psicológicos y psiquiátricos—estudiar el suicidio exige una o varias aproximaciones interdisciplinarias, algunas de las cuales se exploran en este indispensable recurso.

Rony the Frog

Vicente Muñoz Puelles Illustrations by Rocío Martínez

Marinella Terzi Illustrations by Avi

In this story that teaches children to value nature and to observe the changing seasons, Lena finds a frog in the garden pond whom she names Rony. Rony likes to hide and reappear in unexpected places. When winter comes, Rony disappears one day. When spring arrives, Lena hears croaking and decides to investigate. She not only finds Rony but also many other frogs—in the water, on the leaves, and even on the pile of rocks—everywhere.

It is time to get up, and the children are excited to spend the entire day playing. With a box or a cardboard tube, they become characters such as pirates, singers, and astronauts and discover what they would like to be when they grow up.

En esta historia que enseña a valorar la naturaleza y observar los cambios de estación, Lena descubre una rana en el estanque del jardín y le pone de nombre Rony. A la rana le gusta esconderse y aparecer después en un lugar inesperado. Durante el invierno, Rony desaparece un día. Al llegar la primavera, Lena oye ruidos y decide investigar. Ella no solamente encuentra a Rony sino también a muchísimas ranas—en el agua, sobre las hojas y aún en un montón de piedras—por todas partes.

A woman drives a tractor through town and, thanks to the tractor’s noisy engine, can’t hear all the things people say about her as she drives by. They comment on her clothes and her hair, but mostly they seem confused as to why a woman is driving a tractor in the first place. A fun, original tale about turning a deaf ear to negativity and prejudice, this story will inspire children to embrace who they are and to believe they can grow up to be anything they want to be.

Kuku the chicken and Mwewe the eagle have been the very best of friends their entire lives. But one day, vain Kuku rips her favorite dress and begs Mwewe to let her borrow a needle that is also a family heirloom. Mwewe lends her friend the needle, trusting her to care for it like the cherished possession it is. But when Kuku carelessly loses the needle, Kuku and Mwewe’s life-long friendship comes to a sad end. A wonderful fable inspired by an old Swahili legend, this story teaches children the importance of taking responsibility for their actions.

Una mujer conduce un tractor por el pueblo y, gracias a lo ruidoso que es el motor del tractor, no logra escuchar lo que dice la gente sobre ella. Hacen comentarios sobre su ropa y su pelo, pero más que nada parecen estar confundidos por el hecho de que una mujer esté conduciendo un tractor. Un divertido y original cuento sobre hacer oídos sordos hacia la negatividad y los prejuicios, esta historia inspirará a los niños a aceptarse como son y a creer que pueden ser lo que deseen cuando crezcan.

The Story of the Three Wise Men: (Told Right)

Raquel Díaz Reguera

Dominique Jorand Illustrations by Pablo Rulfo With a fun, new approach to storytelling, this picture book tells the story of the three wise men. Meant to be an interactive experience, it’s told in alternating voices by an adult narrator and the children being read to. Every time the narrator slips up and makes a mistake in this well-known tale, the children stop being mere listeners or readers: they interject to correct the narrator and thus become storytellers themselves. A great book for story time, it engages children and encourages them to become active participants. Con un acercamiento divertido y nuevo a la narración de cuentos, este libro ilustrado relata la historia de los tres Reyes Magos. Con la intención de ser una experiencia interactiva, la narración del cuento alterna entre la voz del narrador adulto y la de los niños a quienes se lo está contando. Cada vez que el narrador se equivoca y comete un error contando esta tan conocida historia, los niños dejan de ser meros oyentes o lectores: interrumpen para corregir al narrador y así se convierten en narradores ellos mismos. Un excelente libro para la hora de lectura, capta la atención de los niños y los anima a convertirse en participantes activos.

The Thieving Skeleton

Killer Dust Bunny

Pablo Albo Illustrations by Lucía Serrano

Pablo Albo Illustrations by Lucía Serrano

In this unique tale that combines dark humor with hair-raising horror, a boy hears a disconcerting sound one night and fears there’s a monster in his bedroom. When he investigates the noise, what he discovers isn’t a monster, but a skeleton who’s cold and whose bones shiver and clack. When skeletons are cold, however, they can only be warmed by one kind of coat: human skin. The thieving skeleton steals the boy’s flesh to warm himself, and now the boy has become the skeleton, cold and looking for a “coat” of his own with which to warm himself.

In this fun horror story, one night, a boy fears that there is a monster under his bed.

En este cuento único que combina un humor negro con el horror espeluznante, un niño escucha un sonido desconcertante una noche y teme que hay un monstruo en su cuarto.

La maldición de las brujas

You Don’t Scare Me, a translation from the Farsi

The Curse of the Witches

Farideh Khalatbaree Illustrations by Lisam Jamileh Barjesteh

Victoria Pérez Escrivá Illustrations by Claudia Ranucci

Many evil characters—dragons, monsters, and witches—have been created to scare children, but this unique book reminds kids of the true function of evil characters: without them there would be no need for good characters such as fairies and genies. Written almost like a hypnotic poem, this illustrated book uses repetition and cadence to talk about negative things in a positive light, as an essential part of human nature.

• Part of the Los niños extraordinarios series, which includes Sigrid y el misterioso caso del azúcar putrefacto, Sigrid and the Mysterious Case of the Putrid Sugar (9788479428341) and Tomás y el misterioso caso del ladrón de corazones, Thomas and the Mysterious Case of the Heart Burglar (9788479429119)

Muchos personajes malvados—la bruja, el dragón y el monstruo— han sido creados para atemorizar a los niños, pero este libro único le recuerda a los chicos cuál es la verdadera función de los personajes malvados: sin ellos no habría necesidad de que existieran los personajes benévolos como los genios y las hadas. Escrito casi como un hipnótico poema, este libro ilustrado utiliza la repetición y la cadencia para hablar de lo negativo de una forma positiva, como una parte esencial del ser humano.

Las aventuras de Tom Sawyer

La vuelta al mundo en 80 días

A translation of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (9781402767623)

Also available in English as Around the World in Eighty Days (9780956494252)

Mark Twain Illustrations by Robert Ingpen

Julio Verne Illustrations by Robert Ingpen

In this well-known hymn to boyhood, Tom Sawyer grows up in a small town on the Mississippi and gets into all sorts of childhood mischief. Tom and his friend Huck Finn venture into a nighttime graveyard, witness a murder, get lost in a cave, and get involved in a variety of adventures and mishaps. Beyond the high jinks, however, the novel also touches on darker themes, as Tom is forced to learn some difficult lessons about the often cruel and hypocritical rules that govern adult society.

Although it is now possible to travel the world in hours rather than weeks, Jules Verne’s classic tale of a race against the clock has never lost its power to thrill, and it is brought to new life in this beautifully illustrated and elegantly bound edition. In 1872, Mr. Phileas Fogg and his manservant, the ever resourceful Passepartout, ride through India on an elephant, sail the South China Sea in the teeth of a typhoon, and cross the snow-covered plains of the American Wild West in order to fulfill a wager that the journey can be completed in just 80 days.

En esta conocida oda a la niñez, Tom Sawyer se cría en un pequeño pueblo del Mississippi y se envuelve en todo tipo de travesura juvenil. Tom y su amigo Huck Finn se aventuran en un cementerio nocturno, son testigos de un asesinato, se pierden dentro de una cueva y se envuelven en una serie de aventuras y percances. Más allá de los correteos, sin embargo, la novela explora también temas más oscuros, mientras Tom se ve forzado a aprender lecciones difíciles sobre las reglas a menudas crueles e hipócritas que rigen la sociedad adulta. Mark Twain was a humorist, a satirist, a social critic, a lecturer, and a novelist best remembered for his novels The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. Robert Ingpen has designed, illustrated, and written more than 100 published works of fiction and nonfiction, among them The Jungle Book and the centenary edition of Peter Pan and Wendy. In 1986 he was awarded the Hans Christian Andersen Medal for his contribution to children’s literature. CHILDREN’S: CLASSICS, AGES 9–12, GRADES 4–7 240 PAGES, 7.75 X 9.25 220 COLOR ILLUSTRATIONS, FOUR-COLOR INTERIOR CLOTH, $29.95 (CAN $32.95)

Aunque es posible hoy en día recorrer el mundo entero en horas en lugar de semanas, el relato clásico de Julio Verne de una carrera contra el reloj nunca ha perdido su poder para emocionar, y cobra vida nueva en esta edición hermosamente ilustrada y elegantemente encuadernada. En 1872 el señor Phileas Fogg y su sirviente capaz Passepartout viajan a través de la India a lomos de elefante, cruzan el Mar de la China meridional en paquebote y cruzan las llanuras nevadas del salvaje Oeste americano para cumplir una apuesta de que el viaje se puede completar en 80 días. Julio Verne (Jules Verne) helped pioneer the science fiction genre. His most famous works include Journey to the Center of the Earth and Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea. Robert Ingpen has designed, illustrated, and written more than 100 published works of fiction and nonfiction, among them The Jungle Book and the centenary edition of Peter Pan and Wendy. In 1986 he was awarded the Hans Christian Andersen Medal for his contribution to children’s literature.

La pequeña coral de la señorita Collignon Ms. Collignon’s Small Chorale

A touching story about the horrors of war and the difficulties of a life in exile, this novel focuses on the travails of a Catholic Iraqi family. Dalil is a 13-year-old boy living through the perils of the Gulf War. Amid the deafening blast of bombs and the constant threat of missile attacks, only one thing brings him happiness: his friend Shaima. His love for her is the only bright spot in an existence otherwise plagued by fear and uncertainty. As his family’s situation becomes untenable, they must decide between remaining in Iraq or joining Dalil’s uncle in France. The thought of leaving his homeland behind leaves Dalil with conflicting emotions: on the one hand, he is desperate to leave behind the war. On the other, however, he is unable to imagine a life without Shaima.

Lluís Prats

Una conmovedora historia sobre los horrores de la guerra y las dificultades de una vida en el exilio, esta novela se centra en una familia católica iraquí. Dalil es un niño de 13 años viviendo los peligros de la Guerra del Golfo. En medio del sonido ensordecedor de las bombas y la amenaza de los misiles, sólo una cosa le hace feliz: su amiga Shaima. El amor que siente por la niña es lo único que le permite superar un día a día marcado por el miedo y la incertidumbre. A medida que la situación de su familia se hace insostenible, tienen que decidir entre quedarse en Irak o reunirse en Francia con el tío de Dalil. La idea de dejar su país natal provoca en Dalil sentimientos encontrados: por un lado, quiere dejar atrás la guerra, pero por otro, no es capaz de imaginarse su vida sin Shaima.

Como un galgo A translation of A Greyhound of a Girl (9781407129334)

Roddy Doyle “Written mostly in dialogue, at which Doyle excels, and populated with a charming foursome of Irish women, this lovely tale is as much about overcoming the fear of death as it is about death itself.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review, on the English-language edition “This elegantly constructed yet beautifully simple story, set in Ireland and spun with affection by Booker Prize winner Doyle, will be something different for YA readers. These four lilting voices will linger long after the book is closed.” —Booklist, starred review, on the English-language edition “A warm, witty, exquisitely nuanced multigenerational story.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review, on the English-language edition “It’s a reminder that Doyle is one of the best writers of dialogue there has ever been.” —Guardian, on the English-language edition • Author’s previous books sold more than 300,000 copies In this acclaimed novel from a Booker Prize–winning author, 12-year-old Irish schoolgirl Mary O’Hara is having difficulty coming to grips with the impending death of her beloved Granny. It is when Mary is at her lowest point—racked with fear and sadness at the thought of losing one of the people for whom she cares most in the world—that a mysterious young girl shows up at her door. It’s none other than Tansey, the ghost of Granny’s mother. She has arrived to usher Granny out of this world, but first she invites Mary, Mary’s mother Scarlett, and Granny on a trip to the past. This moving, humorous story vividly portrays the bond between mothers and daughters, the pain of losing a loved one, and the joy of life. En esta aclamada novela de un ganador del Premio Booker, Mary O’Hara, una muchacha irlandés de 12 años, está teniendo dificultad aceptando la muerte inminente de su querida abuelita. Es cuando Mary se encuentra en su punto más bajo—carcomida por el temor y la tristeza de perder a una de las personas que más quiere en el mundo—que una misteriosa joven aparece en su puerta. Es Tansey, el espíritu de la madre de su abuela. Ha venido para llevarse a la abuela de Mary de este mundo, pero primero invita a Mary, a Scarlett, la mamá de Mary, y a la abuela a emprender un viaje al pasado. Esta entrañable y divertida historia vívidamente retrata el vínculo entra las madres e hijas, el dolor de perder a un ser querido y el gozo de la vida. Roddy Doyle is an award-winning Irish author, playwright, and screenwriter. He was awarded the Booker Prize in 1993 for Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha and has contributed to publications such as McSweeney’s and the New Yorker.
