But as children play the nine observation games, they notice that some animals are behaving rather strangely, others change colors, and still others play hide-and-seek. A memory game comprised of 48 cards is included, as are 12 double-sided cards that kids can use to create their own fantastical animals.

Grown-ups and children alike will savor this book’s rich, old-fashioned charms.” —Booklist The Man in the Moon (MiM) has a bit of a problem. Most nights, the moonbeams he sends to the earth help keep the nightmares of children at bay. But what if it’s foggy or cloudy out, or if there’s a new moon and the moon doesn’t shine? It’s obvious he needs some help, and he’s found what seems like the perfect assistant: a sleepy little man named Sanderson Mansnoozie—Sandy to his friends—who specializes in sweet dreams. Will MiM be able to wake Sandy up and convince him to join the fight against the Nightmare King?

“The whimsical details and elaborate, old-fashioned illustrations continue to charm.” —Booklist After the Guardians’ last adventure, everyone assumed that the children of the town of Santoff Claussen were finally safe from the dastardly schemes of Pitch, the Nightmare King. But could this peace merely be a ruse concocted by the villain to attack the heroes when they least expect it? What Pitch doesn’t know is that a new heroine has joined the Guardians’ ranks: Toothiana, the fierce warrior queen of the fairy armies. She and her helpers collect and store the fallen teeth of children, leaving a coin in return. These teeth store the lost memories of childhood, including the memory of how to fly. This is priceless information for the heroes, but it could also be useful, dangerous information for Pitch.

It was during this time that the young Anne began keeping a journal that detailed the difficulties of life in hiding, her relationship with her parents and her sister, the daily fear of being discovered, and her earliest experiences with romance. This novelized biography of Frank’s life exposes young readers to her courage and confidence, while allowing the themes of courage and friendship to shine through. Miguel Ángel Álvarez Pérez is a high school teacher, a journalist, and a musician who has worked as a classical music and theater critic for various Spanish magazines. He is the author of El joven que llegó a Papa: Juan Pablo II, also in the Biografía joven series.

La urdimbre sexista Violencia de género en la escuela primaria The Sexist Plot: Gender Violence in the Primary School

Emilia Moreno Sánchez Featuring the experiences of several girls who have been the victims of abuse and violence, this exploration argues that in the face of what is a growing and serious social problem, it’s necessary to change from a model in which power relations and hierarchies are prioritized toward one that emphasizes dialogue, liberty, and mutual respect in the economic, cultural, and educational spheres. The research backing this study was spurred by the belief that the seeds of gender inequality and violence are planted early on in child development and the conviction that these can be combated at that level as well. The guidelines and tools for action provided in the book are as useful for educators as they are for families, who will be able to recognize and work against violence against their daughters. Emilia Moreno Sánchez is a professor in the department of education at the University of Huelva, Spain. Her primary areas of research are reading habits, gender and education, and health education.

Francisco, los Jesuitas y los pecados de la Iglesia Francis, the Jesuits, and the Sins of the Church

Jorge Blaschke Shedding light into the darkest corners of the Catholic Church and revealing some of the most mysterious and controversial aspects of the institution, Jorge Blaschke describes the greatest challenges facing the new pope Francis as he strives to usher in an era of openness and reconciliation with the non-Christian world. The author begins by examining the possible reasons for the unexpected resignation of Pope Benedict XVI and the sequence of events that led to Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s ascension to the most powerful seat in Christendom. Bergoglio’s own history—including the role he played in Argentina during the dictatorship—is analyzed, and controversies such as the Vati Leaks uproar and the resignation for sexual misconduct of Scottish cardinal Keith O’Brien are discussed as Blaschke paints a portrait of the serious obstacles that threaten to derail the best intentions of Rome’s latest pontiff.

El arameo en sus labios

Book of Creation

Aramaic on Your Lips

Edited/Translated by Manuel Forcano

Abdelmumin Aya

In this translation to Spanish of the Sefer Yetzirah, or “Book of Creation,” Hebrew scholar Manuel Forcano seeks to make the ancient Jewish text—the oldest extant writing on Jewish esotericism in Hebrew—accessible to a new generation of readers. The Book of Creation has for many years confounded some of the most experienced scholars with its anonymous authorship, enigmatic content, and occasionally incomprehensible syntax, but for all its mystery it is perhaps second only to the Talmud in terms of its influence on the development of Jewish thought.

In this fascinating, enlightening study, Islamic studies expert Abdelmumin Aya seeks to create a place of common understanding for Muslims and Christians in the words of Jesus. In order for there to be effective dialogue, however, he argues that Muslims must be willing to accept the veracity of the teachings of Jesus that appear in the Gospels and not in the Koran, and that Christians should make an effort to familiarize themselves with Jesus’s native tongue, Aramaic. As readers learn how to say the words of Jesus—blessing, heart, love, mercy, salvation, and others— in the original Aramaic, a cultural awareness and appreciation begins to grow. Abdelmumin Aya is one of the most acute and profound thinkers of Islamic modernism in Europe. He is the author of El Islam no es lo que crees and El secreto de Muhammad and the coauthor of Diccionario de las tres religiones.

Cerebro y trascendencia The Brain and Transcendence

Ramon Maria Nogués Denominating those uniquely human pursuits—the search for beauty, an interest in ethics, and the organization of leisure activities, among others—that rise above merely survivalist concerns, this examination argues that, far from being a purely religious expression, this concept of transcendence can be observed in aesthetics, in ethics, in nationalism, in romance, in language, and in symbolism. The book thoroughly—and often controversially—tackles topics such as human uniqueness, the emergence of the self, and the intricacies of the mental world. Ramon Maria Nogués is a professor emeritus of biological anthropology at the Autonomous University of Barcelona. His fields of study include pedagogy, philosophy, theology, and evolutionary neurobiology. The author of Dioses, creencias y neuronas: Un acercamiento científico a la religion, he has extensively studied the relationship between neurobiology and religion.

A translation of Birth, Life and Death: According to Tibetan Medicine and the Dzocghen Teaching (9788878341012)

In this illuminating, inspiring book, the spiritual leader Osho immerses himself in the verses of the Japji Sahib, providing a magisterial interpretation of one of the founding texts of Sikhism. In the vein of Guru Nanak, the founder of the Sikh faith, Osho maintains that all of the names for the divine—God, Allah, Ram, Krishna, etc.—are merely human inventions. He argues that the true and only name for the divine is the sound “Om.” This profound meditation into the nature of the divine is an enlightening experience both for adherents to Osho’s teaching as well as readers who are interested in exploring spirituality further.

Chögyal Namkhai Norbu

Osho was an Indian mystic and guru and one of the best-known and most provocative spiritual teachers of modern times. He is the author of The ABC of Enlightenment, Inner War and Peace, and Tao: The Pathless Path. RELIGION & THEOLOGY, 416 PAGES, 5 X 8 TRADE PAPER, $24.95 (CAN $27.95)

Excerpt: Pasaron tres días. Para entonces, ya no cabía duda de que Nanak se había ahogado. La gente imaginaba que la fuerza de la corriente habría arrastrado el cuerpo río abajo, y que tal vez ya lo habrían devorado las fieras. La aldea estaba sumida en un profundo pesar. Sin embargo, a la tercera noche Nanak salió del río, y las primeras palabras que pronunció se convertirían desde entonces en el Japuji. Eso cuenta la leyenda, y una leyenda siempre es a la vez verdad y no verdad. Es verdadera porque transmite una verdad esencial, y es falsa en el sentido de que es solo simbólica; pero es evidente que, cuanto más profundo es un tema, mayor es la necesidad de utilizar simbolismos.

Tackling two of the fundamental questions of humanity—on the one hand, the natural, instinctive search for daily health and well-being, and on the other, the cultivation of a spiritual dimension—this study argues that in both cases it’s necessary to address birth, life, and death profoundly and concretely. Chögyal Namkhai Norbu, one of the world’s leading teachers of the Dzogchen tradition, which seeks to restore an individual to his natural or primordial state, begins by explaining the characteristics of the human organism as they are understood by traditional Tibetan medicine. He proceeds to analyze birth, discussing issues such as the secondary causes that determine a baby’s sex and the different constitutions of a child. The section on life shows how an understanding of the three doors of the organism—body, voice, and energy—can lead to better physical, mental, and spiritual health. A final section on the topic of death evaluates human reactions toward this inevitability and offers an illuminating guide, based on the teachings in the Bardo Thodol, or the Tibetan Book of the Dead, for the change of state that abandoning the physical body entails. Chögyal Namkhai Norbu is one of the world’s foremost Dzogchen masters. He taught Tibetan and Mongolian language and literature for 30 years at the Institute for Oriental Studies at the University of Naples. He is the founder of the Shang Shung International Institute for Tibetan Studies in Italy, which has the aim of preserving Tibetan culture.

The Law of Attraction for Couples

The Crop Circle Enigma

Olivia Reyes Mendoza

Vicente Fuentes

Offering advice on how to put the tenets of the law of attraction to use in one’s personal life, this manual helps readers develop the attributes that will allow them to attract their ideal mate as well as develop into happier and more confident people in the interim. The book includes the tools individuals will need to put the ritual of creating harmony into practice, as well as formulas that will aid readers as they increase their own magnetism and develop their power of positive attraction. The keys supplied in this guide will also help individuals become attuned to their partner’s frequency—and to the vibration of love as a result. Anyone interested in using the energy of the universe to attract the fullness of love into their life will find this an invaluable resource.

Investigating the phenomenon of crop circles, this exploration takes readers on a journey to different corners of the globe and many different periods throughout human history as it seeks to answer questions such as What or who could have made the circles? What link, if any, exists between the circles and UFOs? What subjects cover crop circles? and What moral or philosophical significance do the circles have for humanity? The author argues that these massive, occasionally tremendously complex apparitions can contain codes and messages that are capable of completely transforming humanity’s way of understanding the universe. On a more basic level, the book is also an appreciation for the beauty and scope of the circles, one that readers, whatever their beliefs, will certainly come to share.

Olivia Reyes Mendoza is a psychologist and a law-of-attraction expert and coach. She is the founder of the Attracting Prosperity project and the Laboratory for Self-Improvement. She is the author of Conciencia de prosperidad, Ley de atracción en la pareja, El mágico poder de la autoestima, and El viaje hacia la fe.

Seis enigmas para Sherlock Holmes Six Mysteries for Sherlock Holmes

Arthur Conan Doyle Translated by José Luis Piquero

When Danny Morton travels from Chicago to tiny Marksville, South Dakota, looking for a second chance with his former flame Lorna Moore, all he has on him are a revolver, a bottle of bourbon, and a suitcase filled with $20,000. The money, as it turns out, is the ransom for the kidnapped daughter of Nigel Donaldson, a Chicago businessman and front man for Conrad Bonazzo. Bonazzo has put Rudy Bambridge, his fixer, on the case, but Bambridge—cleverer than he is intelligent and colder than he is rash—will have to confront a much more tangled plot than it first seems.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s penchant for creating complex, gripping mysteries infused with humor and suspense is on full display in this collection of six of his classic Sherlock Holmes stories. In tales such as “A Scandal in Bohemia,” “The Adventure of the Red-Headed League,” and “The Adventure of the Dancing Men,” Holmes puts his legendary wit and powers of deduction to the task of unraveling cases of blackmail, theft, and murder. Fans of the famously insightful and eccentric detective will have their fill in this absorbing compendium.

M. A. West was a writer of pulp detective novels, many of them featuring the protagonist Rudy Bambridge. Thalía Rodríguez is a translator. Alexis Ravelo is a writer of detective novels, short stories, flash fiction, and children’s books. He is the author of Los días de mercurio, La estrategia del pequinés, and Tres funerales para Eladio Monroy, among other books.

Arthur Conan Doyle produced more than 30 books, 150 short stories, poems, plays, and essays across a wide range of genres. He is best known for his stories about detective Sherlock Holmes and the adventures of Professor Challenger. José Luis Piquero is a writer and a translator whose other translations include The Great Gatsby and This Side of Paradise.

Drama en la cacería Un hecho real The Shooting Party, a translation from the Russian

Anton Chéjov Translated by Luisa Borovsky One of the very few of Anton Chekhov’s works long enough to be considered a proper novel, The Shooting Party focuses on the mysterious murder of a young woman during a hunting excursion at the estate of a decadent count. The woman’s elderly husband is the prime suspect and a local magistrate is called to investigate, but the plot thickens when it is revealed that the victim was involved in a relationship not only with her husband, but also with the libertine count and the magistrate himself. Anton Chéjov (Anton Chekhov) was a Russian short story writer, a playwright, and a physician, considered to be one of the greatest short story writers in the history of world literature. Luisa Borovsky is an editor and translator.

Saki Translated by José Luis Piquero

Edgar Allan Poe Translated by José Luis Piquero and Carme Font Prologue by José Luis Piquero

The biting humor and insight that characterized Saki are on full display in the 12 ingenious and irreverent stories collected in this volume. The tales are filled with unforgettable characters such as Clovis Sangfrail, hedonist philosopher and plotter of absurdities; Vera Durmot, unrepentant teller of tall tales who loves nothing more than to trick dignified visitors; and Aristide Saucourt, the chef of the Grand Sybaris Hotel and master of his domain. The author dissects these individuals and their ilk—the elegant, ridiculous members of the upper classes of Edwardian society— with his usual keen wit. Among the stories included in the collection are “The Brogue” and “The Peace Offering.” Saki was the pen name of Hector Hugh Munro, a British writer known for witty and occasionally shocking stories that satirized Edwardian society and culture. José Luis Piquero is a writer and a translator whose other translations include The Great Gatsby and This Side of Paradise. FICTION/SPANISH: CLASSICS, 112 PAGES, 5.75 X 8.5 TRADE PAPER, $16.95 (CAN $18.95)

The tales gathered in this brief collection serve as evidence of Edgar Allan Poe’s genius for creating a dark, menacing, and mysterious mood. The stories included are “The Fall of the House of Usher,” “MS. in a Bottle,” “Ligeia,” “The Pit and the Pendulum,” and “The Cask of Amontillado.” This compilation is an excellent introduction to the work of an American master of horror and should be a part of any Poe enthusiast’s library. Edgar Allan Poe was an American writer, poet, editor, and literary critic best known for his tales of mystery and the macabre, including The Masque of the Red Death and The Tell-Tale Heart.

Los miserables

Anna Karenina

A translation from the French of Les misérables

A translation from the Russian

Victor Hugo

León Tolstoi

Les misérables has become a seminal work, not just of French fiction, but of world literature. Victor Hugo’s novel is a masterwork of social commentary and a moving defense of the oppressed. With its brilliantly contrived plot full of villains, tormentors, and victims, it plunges readers into a hostile and ruthless world where individuals must occasionally resort to crime in a desperate attempt to survive. This edition ties into the film starring Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, and Amanda Seyfried.

Among the greatest novels ever written, Anna Karenina details the passionate love triangle between Anna, her husband Karenin, and her lover Vronsky. The triangle is broken when Anna decides to leave her family to follow Vronsky to Italy, a decision that will lead to an ill-fated end for her and misery for those around her. The novel doesn’t merely focus on the romantic dramas of its main characters, however; it examines the lives of other characters that serve as a counterpoint to the main action and complete Tolstoy’s universal vision of the emotionally charged relationships between men, duty, resignation, and success. This quality hardcover edition ties into the feature film starring Keira Knightley and Jude Law.

Mañana no te veré en Miami

Tomorrow I Won’t See You in Miami

The Architect of Atmospheres

Pedro Medina

Alberto Trinidad

• Author tour to include Chicago, Miami, and New York

The Architect of Atmospheres is a radio show that a unique and troubled individual plans to use to carry out a transcendental therapy. Three of his listeners, each subject to a strange and particular collection that emotionally dominates their lives, find themselves inevitably drawn to the future of this therapy. This novel is an enigmatic story of extreme feelings and attitudes that mixes the infinite loneliness of a person who no longer wants to be human with the suppression of madness in a psychiatric hospital, the bitter indifference of a relationship reaching its end, and the hysteria of a biologist who feels an impossible organic calling. This is a fascinating narrative that grows in intensity until it reaches its tempestuous end.

The intertwined stories featured in this novel provide a view of Miami far from the glittering images that appear in the Miami Beach and Brickell Avenue postcards: a seedier and more realistic view of illegality, prostitution, deportations, and broken and divided families. The protagonists in these tales are keenly aware that they are temporary residents in a city that, for various reasons, they will each have to flee. They are determined, however, to make the most of their brief time in the city, leaving an indelible footprint on the fabric of the great metropolis. Through the eyes of an affable Peruvian, this extraordinary narration will introduce readers to the unique experiences of a series of Latino characters who have washed up in Miami, only to disappear from the city just as suddenly. Pedro Medina is the editor of the cultural magazine Sub-Urbano as well as of Sub-Urbano eBooks, a digital publisher focused on publishing Spanish-language authors in the United States.

Not-quite-30-year-old Leo lives alone in his apartment, where he makes a living translating tediously boring pharmaceutical pamphlets. Ever since his girlfriend Virginia left him, Leo hasn’t been able to summon the energy to so much as open his front door— let alone leave the apartment—wallowing as he is in his own misery. To make matters worse, the soundtrack to his despair is his neighbors’ incessant lovemaking, which only serves to remind him what he’s missing out on. When Leo thinks that he recognizes the voices of the girls visiting the adjacent apartment, though, his life takes a very interesting turn indeed. This brief, hypnotic novel plumbs the depths of desire, melancholy, and despondency with a sweeping rhythm that blends the mysterious and the psychological to perfection.

In this unsettling, ironic novel, readers meet Antonio Martinez: a solitary, middle-aged businessman who, between trips, fantasizes about the possibility of being someone else, of living a completely different life. Antonio entertains himself at airports by guessing the names of the people he observes, inventing lives for them that might well be his. But who is he, really? The story draws readers in, requiring them to grapple with the narrative as it weaves together the disparate and ambivalent identities that feature in it into a plot that reflects the anguish and emotions of characters who are incapable of supporting themselves.

Aitor Villafranca is a writer whose short fiction has appeared in the anthologies Relatos para leer en tres minutos Luis de Val and Uno, nosotros, todos, as well as in the magazine Aulafoto.

This autobiographical novel emotionally and lucidly captures the tumult of that terrible time, narrating the story of a young Bosnian writer converted into a soldier and sent into hell. The book take an unflinching look at both sides of the conflict and their similarities and differences and powerfully describes devastated cities and the countless dead. It also, however, offers some respite: small moments of generosity, of tenderness, and of kindness in the midst of the chaos. Velibor Colic is a writer and a freelance music journalist. He was a soldier in the Bosnian army during the Bosnian War of the early 1990s and was imprisoned for desertion. He was able to escape and make his way to France, where he has since lived.

Rita Indiana As in Rita Indiana’s debut novel, Papi, it is a child’s voice—innocent, but with a certain sarcastic edge—that holds forth on a range of topics in Nombres y animales. The narrator discusses animals, music, and television, as well as—more revealingly—family, mothers and fathers, initiation, learning, and what may exist after life. The everyday and the dreamlike collide in this novel that reverberates with echoes of the Caribbean and that describes what it means to come of age in that region, what it means to be a woman in Latin America, and what it means to write in the present day. Rita Indiana is a Dominican-born Puerto Rican novelist and short story writer. Her previous works include Ciencia succión, La estrategia de Chochueca, Papi, and Rumiantes.

“A chilling, cynical parable of false hopes in the post-Stalin era.” —New York Times, on the English-language edition Ruslan, a guard dog in a remote Siberian gulag, doesn’t understand why, seemingly overnight, the camp’s prisoners are set free and the guards, whom Ruslan and his fellow guard dogs love unconditionally, have left their canine companions to their fate. Told from Ruslan’s point of view, this powerful novel portrays the chilling cruelty of the Soviet system—a system that condemned the author’s own mother, a victim of anti-Semitic Stalinist purges, to two years in a labor camp—focusing on the period immediately after Nikita Khrushchev’s reforms allowed for the emancipation of thousands of prisoners. An early version of this story was circulated widely in the Soviet Union as a samizdat publication before Vladimov published the full novel in Germany in 1974. Gueorgui Vladímov was a Russian dissident writer and the author of The General and His Army. He was also the former head of the Moscow branch of Amnesty International. Marta Rebón is a translator with a degree in Slavic studies. FICTION/SPANISH: GENERAL 232 PAGES, 5 X 8 TRADE PAPER, $16.95 (CAN $18.95)

El país imaginado

A translation from the Hebrew

The Imagined Country

Yoram Kaniuk Translated by Raquel García Lozano

Eduardo Berti Introduction by Alberto Manguel

“If the prophets of the Old Testament had read Joyce, Kafka, Márquez, Conrad, and Gershom Scholem, listened to American Jazz, seen Broadway musicals, and heard Lenny Bruce, they might have sounded something like Kaniuk.” —Nicole Krauss, author, Great House

Imbued with a magical quality, this elegant fable transports readers to early 20th-century China, a country brimming with ghosts, with weddings between the living and the dead, and with superstitions and ancestral rites. Living in the midst of this is the tale’s protagonist, a young girl living in dread of the marriage her parents are attempting to arrange for her. She has eyes only for the daughter of a blind bird vendor. The two initiate an at-first halting, timid friendship, but in their meetings in the park where the elderly gather with their birds, they discover the importance of what should be spoken and what should be left unsaid, and of beauty and loyalty, which have the power to lift them out of their circumstances.

• Winner, 2010 Sapir Prize for Literature Drawing directly and movingly from Yoram Kaniuk’s own experiences as a teenaged soldier in the Palmach unit of the Israeli army during the 1948 War for Independence, this memoir-novel portrays an entire generation of young men from good homes who found themselves immersed in a struggle they did not fully understand. Far from trying to justify his own actions, Kaniuk opts instead for self-criticism, reflecting on the pointlessness of war. Yoram Kaniuk was an Israeli writer, journalist, theater critic, and painter. During the 1948 Israeli War for Independence, he fought with the elite unit of the Israeli army known as the Palmach. He is the author of Adam Resurrected, Confessions of a Good Arab, and The Last Jew.

Andanzas del impresor Zollinger The Adventures of Zollinger the Printer

Pablo d’Ors Introduction by Andrés Ibáñez In this affecting moral fable, young August Zollinger leaves his hometown in order to save his own life, undertaking a seven-year, solitary journey of adventure and discovery that will see him try his hand at all manner of different jobs. What begins as a bitter exile ultimately becomes a voyage of enlightenment, and he learns to value the inherent dignity of even the humblest professions. It is the wisdom gained during this journey that allows August to return to his village, where he can now become the printer he had always dreamed of being as a child.

Written between 1832 and 1833, the stories in this collection are brimming with the realism and the sense of place that characterized Giovanni Verga’s most famous works. Where he focused on the idiosyncrasies of Sicilian life in stories like Cavalleria Rusticana, however, Verga turns his gaze in these Milanese tales to the society of the Lombard capital, following the travails of the orking class. Written in the present tense, the stories are imbued with a certain immediacy and offer a unique portrait of a very particular time in history. The 22 stories gathered in this book serve as a fantastic introduction to the work of one of Italy’s most influential writers. Giovanni Verga was an Italian realist writer best known for his depictions of Sicilian life in works such as Cavelleria Rusticana and I Malavoglia.

Pola Oloixarac

Fabián Casas

A young philosophy student who stalks her old professor through the faculty corridors; a radical left winger who writes letters to Mao; two adolescents who find in their respective physical and moral deformities good cause to join forces: this dark comedy is filled with complex, flawed characters who live in a tangled world of impossible, visionary, and ungraspable theories, theories for individuals adrift in a sea of supposed electronic and digital connectedness, but in reality ever more fragmented. The novel wryly addresses themes of fear and violence, war and sex, eroticism and philosophy as it declares war on the concept of seduction in an era of social networks and blogs. This book marks a tart and immensely enjoyable debut from one of the most promising—and controversial—voices in Latin American fiction.

“What we have here is a work of fiction that, however much it blurs lines [between fiction and reality], is, above all, an example of great literature.” —El País Ocio and Veteranos del pánico, the two novellas that comprise this volume, offer ample evidence of the technique, sensibility, audacity, and honesty that characterize the work of Fabián Casas, one of the most exciting voices in contemporary Latin American fiction. In Ocio, the author gazes into the past, drawing new emotions from familiar places and people—the old neighborhood and the family and friends of a teenager coming up in the Buenos Aires neighborhood of Bodeo during the 1980s—with a poetic language full of metaphor. Veteranos del pánico is an autobiographical story that tracks the protagonist’s life as he attempts to recover his family history. In doing so, he unravels the thread of a familial chronicle, becoming party to a history he did not witness firsthand. Both stories share a richness of language that will ensnare readers.

Constructores de monstruos Creators of Monsters

Javier Tomeo In this, his final and heretofore unpublished novel, Javier Tomeo returns to one of his favorite themes: monsters. In the story, two builders—one with a very large head, the other with a very small head, both attended by a very short servant— take up residence in a 19th-century castle and seek to build a creature inspired by the manual of Bauhaus architect Walter Gropius. Throughout the story, Tomeo presents the theme of the monster as a way to learn about others and about the biological differences that make us human, and emphasizes the importance of loving others, even when they do not abide by the normal criteria of the established order—an order he questions and challenges. The novel also functions as a metaphor for the subtle creative process of fiction itself, which Tomeo constructs and revises until he has created the quintessential monster: the novel itself. Javier Tomeo was a Spanish essayist, dramatist, and novelist. Two of his works were translated to English: The Coded Letter and Dear Monster.

Hadji Murat, a translation from the Russian

Baltic Novels

Lev Tolstói Edited by Víctor Andresco Translated by Irene Andresco and Laura Andresco

Eduard von Keyserling Translated by Xandru Fernández and Miriam Dauster Preface by Víctor Andresco

When Hadji Murat, a revered and feared Avar commander in the struggle of Dagestan and Chechnya against incorporation into the Russian empire, falls out with his commander, Imam Shamil, the only way to save his family’s life is to surrender to the Russian forces. Though they respect his prowess, the Russians do not trust Murat enough to allow him to lead a force against Shamil—forcing him to find another way to rescue his family. This short novel, the last written by Tolstoy, is an exciting, moving tale of sacrifice and valiance filled with vivid and expertly drawn characters.

The four works gathered here, among Eduard von Keyserling’s most representative, all share the same setting: the region of Courland, populated in these pages by the German aristocracy and the bourgeoisie, a group with impeccable Prussian manners who live in a world of lavish mansions, carefully tended gardens, verdant forests, and beautiful beaches. In Harmony, a man’s homecoming is complicated by his relationship with a young woman. In Sweltering Days, Bill spends the summer with his father at the family estate, where he discovers that the cultured and restrained behavior of the adults conceals surprises. The protagonist of Nicky is swept away in a passionate romance with a pianist, but the affair is truncated by the outbreak of war. And Paul’s country holiday is interrupted by the start of the war in the story In a Quiet Corner.

D. H. Lawrence Translated by Sílvia Pons Pradilla Compiled by Isabel Sucunza

Stolen caresses on a crowded train car, a fire rekindled between a couple who have been together for years, surprise encounters as a result of an automobile breakdown, a multipurpose armchair: passion and sensuality can ignite in even the most quotidian situations and settings, as evinced by the seductive tales in this collection. The stories eschew prudishness and tawdriness both to offer a tender and occasionally mischievous look at everyday people. This collection is a tribute to sensuality and, above all, an affectionate nod to the marvelous world of pleasure.

While the occasionally explicit erotic scenes contained in the stories gathered in this collection provide some insight into the literary themes that led to the censorship of D. H. Lawrence’s Lady Chatterley’s Lover, it’s also true that they present another facet of the author’s work, one no less intense or suspenseful: the tortured psyche of characters who are locked in a struggle with themselves, and with the repressive norms of a society that, in many ways, seems to run contrary to human nature. Lawrence’s unceasing questioning of rigid social conventions, gender roles, and sexual assumptions form an integral part of each of the five stories in this compendium, and will allow readers to understand the considerable disconnect that existed between the writer and what was considered morally acceptable during his time. D. H. Lawrence was a novelist, a poet, a playwright, an essayist, a literary critic, and a painter who is considered a pioneer of English modernism. He is the author of Lady Chatterley’s Lover, The Rainbow, and Women in Love.

Speculative Lives, a translation from the Italian of Vite congetturali

Alejandro Zambra Through the articles and brief literary essays which make up this book, Alejandro Zambra outlines, without explicitly referencing it as such, a unique theory of reading. Whether it be in a sober and well-judged comment on a particular book, or else in the biographical digressions which arise from remarks on a particular author—from Nicanor Parra, Mario Levrero, and Cesare Pavese to Roberto Bolaño, Natalia Ginzburg, and Manuel Puig—the act of reading occupies the central position in these pages, in which good-humored but potent critical attacks on cliché and imposture alternate with an intimate and calm celebration of having read something genuine. Zambra displays a literary style in which ambiguity, self-control, and ambivalence are key values, offering, rather than a pretentious final word, merely an appreciation for the profound impact that certain books can have on an individual. Alejandro Zambra is a Chilean poet, fiction writer, and literary critic. He is currently a lecturer in the school of literature at Diego Portales University in Santiago.

Vicente Haya

“Each author has, from his or her respective country, set down to the task of deconstructing Batman . . . of speaking intelligently about a superhero.” —La Vanguardia Rather than a simple list of the most famous story lines or of the many villains, sidekicks, and secondary characters, this exploration of Batman dares to take an intellectual look at the comic book superhero, a man who could have been a normal person— or, better yet, a normal billionaire—but chose instead to be a bat. Ten essays examine Batman as an archetype who reflects and predicts the course of human existence and discuss how the comic addresses topics such as the definitions of good and evil, the limits of violence as an effective strategy, the perils of enforcing justice outside of the law, the metaphysics of personal identity, and the definition of humanity. This collection is geared not only to Batman enthusiasts, but also to neophytes who are just dipping their toes in the noir-ish waters of the world of one of the most enduring characters in comic book—and pop culture—history. Laura Férnandez is a journalist, a writer, and a literary critic who contributes to numerous Spanish publications.

In this ambitious consideration, preeminent haiku expert Vicente Haya sets about the task of explaining in a single book all there is to know about the traditional Japanese poetry form. To this end, he establishes 88 fundamental keys to haiku and illustrates these points by directly translating 262 haikus from Japanese to Spanish. Many of them—including a number from well-known authors—contain errors that Haya masterfully and clearly dissects so that readers can understand what makes a good haiku. The book is engaging and accessible but also intense in its defense of the purity of the art form, and combines biting criticism with a lyric and almost mystical tone. It is precisely for this reason that the book is titled Aware: the term in Japanese that synthesizes the aesthetic-religious emotion that awakens nature. Vicente Haya is recognized as the foremost expert on haiku in Spanish. He has translated various works from Japanese to Spanish and is the author, among many other books, of Haikudo and El monje desnudo. POETRY, 312 PAGES, 5 X 8 TRADE PAPER, $22.95 (CAN $27.95)

Profiling some of the principal architects and chief executioners of the Holocaust, this chronicle offers a chilling portrait of the abject cruelty of the Nazi regime. The stories of such infamous individuals as Adolf Eichmann, Franz Stangl, Hermine Braunsteiner, and Josef Mengele put a face on the infamous crimes committed by Hitler and his henchmen. As a counterpoint, the book also examines individuals who dedicated their lives to finding erstwhile Nazis and bringing them to justice, including Simon Wiesenthal, Mossad director Isser Harel, and Beata Klarsfeld. Final sections provide a chronology of the Holocaust and information on the Nuremburg Trials.

The stories and episodes gathered in this historical collection help shed light on some of the lesser-known and even esoteric aspects of the rise to power of Adolf Hitler and the Nazis. The book discusses Hitler’s Jewish heritage and his childhood, as well as the paramilitary complex that helped him gain and maintain control over the country. Chapters are also devoted to the symbolism adopted by the Nazi party, as well as its rumored fascination with the occult and mythical objects such as the Spear of Destiny and Holy Grail. Profiles of some of Hitler’s most trusted associates are also included, as is information on the German military intelligence organization and the crimes committed at the concentration camps.

In looking at the farthest reaches of time and space; the Earth and the solar system; the human body, health, and life; and technological innovations and challenges, this book demonstrates that for all of the many mysteries science has helped resolve, many others remain—and in some cases, the answers are tantalizingly close.

El espejismo de la ciencia

Inside the Minds of Superheroes

A translation of The Science Delusion (9781444727944)

Juan Scaliter and Manuel Cuadrado

Rupert Sheldrake

Superheroes have long served as powerful archetypes of the goods and ills of society and humankind’s capabilities, from the irredeemable evil of Carnage to the altruistic sacrifice of the Silver Surfer, the brilliance of Reed Richards, and the artificial intelligence of Deathlok. This study examines this symbolism, with an eye as well toward what superheroes can reveal about the mechanisms of the human brain and reactions. The authors discuss dozens of heroes and villains, including Blackheart and the ability to read minds through empathy; Namor the SubMariner and the sense of good and evil; the Hulk and primitive instinctual responses to aggression; Superman and the story of a timid and insecure man; and Batman and the process of overcoming fears. Through these and other characters, this book explores the physics and chemistry of the brain in an engaging and entertaining way.

“If you agree that science must be freed from the shackles of antiquated beliefs, then read this book. If you don’t agree, then read it twice.” —Dean Radin, author, The Conscious Universe, on the English-language edition In this compelling and challenging argument, biologist Rupert Sheldrake explains that the fundamental delusion of science is the belief that it has understood the nature of reality, that all of the fundamental questions have been answered and only the details remain to be ironed out. In an impassioned contention, however, Sheldrake demonstrates that science—true science, which should be skeptical and inquisitive—has been constricted by assumptions that have become dogmas. He scientifically tackles these dogmas, showing that science would be immeasurably better without them: freer, more interesting, and more fun. Rupert Sheldrake is a biologist, a fellow of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, and a visiting professor at the Graduate Institute in Connecticut, as well as a former research fellow of the Royal Society, director of studies in biochemistry and cell biology at Cambridge University’s Clare College, and director of the PerrottWarrick Project on unexplained human abilities, funded by Trinity College in Cambridge, England.

Sherpa: An Essay on Immortality

Tao: The Teachings of the Secret Sage

Federico Paz Prologue by Vicente Merlo

J. M. Romero

The search for physical immortality is one of the principal themes of universal thought and literature, observed in some of the earliest recorded writings, including The Epic of Gilgamesh. Sherpa is a philosophical and existential approach to this ageold human quest. The book synthesizes the different paths that various cultures—the Chinese, the Tibetan, the Indian, and others—attempted to pave toward immortality, examining the consequences of adopting a philosophy and behavior that revolve around it. The author argues that incorporating the concept of immortality into everyday life can drastically change an individual’s perception of sexuality, mysticism, the use of technology, social obligation—in short, the building blocks of life. The essay discusses individuals who, though they did not achieve physical immortality, left an enduring legacy, including scalers of the Himalayas’ eight-thousanders and the Sherpa community. Federico Paz is a copyeditor, a photojournalist, and an awardwinning writer of essays, poems, and short stories. Vicente Merlo is a philosopher and social scientist whose work focuses on Eastern philosophy and religions. He is the author of La llamada (de la) Nueva Era.

The author applies this profound wisdom to everyday life, demonstrating the surprising relevance of these ancient teachings to the modern world.

La ciudadela interior

El anillo del poder

The Inner Citadel, a translation from the French of La Citadelle intérieure

El hijo abandonado, el padre autoritario y el desautorizado poder femenino

Pierre Hadot Prologue by Arnold I. Davidson

A translation of Ring of Power (9780892540433)

In this stirring introduction to Marcus Aurelius’s Meditations, noted French philosopher Pierre Hadot offers proof of the way in which the Roman emperor’s thoughts form part of a tradition of spiritual exercise that spans the period between the ancient Greek philosophers to Michel Foucault. This treatise analyzes Meditations as the work of a man of action who sought serenity primarily because it was an essential precondition for efficiency. Hadot examines the possible applications of Aurelius’s views on governance—an approach in which the city was a symbol of the ruler’s own soul, and thus intimately tied to his spiritual praxis— to modern society, posing questions and offering proposals to readers who, at a time of tremendous economic uncertainty, might look to philosophy for a more fulfilling way of life. Ultimately, the book argues that true philosophy isn’t merely the practice of addressing abstract problems and issues, but a concrete way of bettering our way of life.

With an uncommon geniality and good humor, bestselling author Jean Shinoda Bolen demonstrates how mythology can illuminate psychology. In this study, the respected Jungian analyst transcends the personal sphere to focus on the family and patriarchal society. Using Richard Wagner’s four-opera cycle The Ring of Nibelung as a framework, the author investigates the psychological origins and destructive capacity of authoritarian institutions. Each of the four central chapters of the book examines one of Wagner’s operas, which the author links to a particular Jungian archetype. In doing so, the book reveals profound truths about humanity, human relations, and society that can be highly transformative. In concluding, Shinoda Bolen outlines a possible postpatriarchal society and how each individual can help in forming it by living a life centered on authenticity.

Pierre Hadot was a French philosopher and historian of philosophy specializing in ancient philosophy. He was among the first French authors to introduce Ludwig Wittgenstein’s thought into France, and his views on philosophy as a way of life influenced Michel Foucault. Arnold I. Davidson is the Robert O. Anderson Distinguished Service Professor in the departments of philosophy, comparative literature, and romance languages and literatures, as well as in the Committee on the Conceptual and Historical Studies of Science and the Divinity School, at the University of Chicago. He is the European editor of the journal Critical Inquiry and is also a director of the France Chicago Center. He lives in Chicago.

Famous Sayings

José Luis González Díaz

Francisco Márquez

The result of an extensive and meticulous gathering process, this compilation contains a wealth of Spanish folk sayings and proverbs. In these pages, readers will find and recognize vocabulary, expressions, and idioms that have been in use for generations, including Andar a la caza de grillos (“To go hunting for crickets,” or to be worried with matters of little concern) and A mal tiempo, buena cara (literally “Greet bad weather with a good face”—or put a brave face on a situation). Though some phrases have fallen into disuse, the majority continue to be touted as common wisdom. Both kinds, however, comprise an extensive compendium that serves as evidence of an ever-evolving culture and, most importantly, a rich linguistic heritage.

The wide but carefully curated selection of sayings, proverbs, adages, verses, and couplets that comprises this book is itself a synthesis of folk knowledge, customs, and life. The sayings range from the profound and serious to the ironic, lighthearted, and humorous and deal with a range of topics, from the scientific and linguistic to the chivalric. The phrases are grouped by topics for ease of reading, comprehension, and reference.

José Luis González Díaz is a specialist in Spanish language and etymology. He is the author of several other books of popular phrases and sayings.

Fórmulas DAX para Power Pivot Una guía simple hacia la revolución de Excel Also available in English as DAX Formulas for Power Pivot: A Simple Guide to the Excel Revolution (9781615470150)

Rob Collie Translated by Miguel Escobar • Co-op available Microsoft Power Pivot is a free add-on to Excel from Microsoft that allows users to produce new kinds of reports and analyses that were simply impossible before. Written by the world’s foremost Power Pivot blogger and practitioner, this guide is the first to tackle DAX formulas, the core capability of Power Pivot, from the perspective of the Excel audience in a simple, step-by-step manner tailored to its learning style. The techniques presented allow individuals to produce, in hours or even minutes, results that formerly would have taken entire teams weeks or months to produce and include lessons on the difference between calculated columns and measures, how formulas can be reused across reports of completely different shapes, how to merge disjointed sets of data into unified reports, how to make certain columns in a pivot behave as if the pivot were filtered while other columns do not, and how to create time-intelligent calculations in pivot tables such as “Year over Year” and “Moving Averages” whether they use a standard, fiscal, or a complete custom calendar. The “pattern-like” techniques and best practices contained in this book have been developed and refined over two years of onsite training with Excel users around the world, and now those key lessons—usually available in seminars costing thousands of dollars per day—are available to readers within the pages of this easy-to-follow manual. Rob Collie is a former engineering leader at Microsoft, where he helped develop Power Pivot during his 14-year career with the company.

Cómo vivir sin dolor Laocoonte salvaje Savage Laocoön si eres músico La mejor postura

Jorge Ribalta

How to Live Without Pain if You’re a Musician: The Best Posture

Photography, music, and dance collide in this incredibly original book by Spanish photographer Jorge Ribalta. Through hundreds of black-and-white photos, the author seeks to capture the essence of flamenco, the traditional Spanish music and dance. Rather than focus on the names and personalities, however, Ribalta is more concerned with the setting and sense of place, and his images set the structure of flamenco against a varied backdrop, highlighting historic and emblematic locations as well as forgotten and marginalized sites. In addition to the photographs, this exploration also includes a conversation between the photographer and Pedro Romero and Gerhard Steingress, two experts on flamenco, about its iconography and the dominant modes of visual representation of its culture.

Ana Velázquez Recognizing the increased risk of injury musicians face because of the repetitive movements their profession can require, this guide for pain prevention argues that the surest method of avoiding injury is to teach appropriate posture and instrument position from the earliest lessons and to avoid subsequent changes to the ideal posture. It prompts readers to consider their body position with and without the instrument and offers a number of techniques for correcting a body position that may be out of alignment, including techniques for specific instruments. It also discusses how breathing can play an integral role in ameliorating the situation and postural hygiene. This manual is a holistic approach to better health and a vital resource for all musicians. Ana Velázquez is a physical therapist, an expert on posturology, and the director of the Center for Prevention in Performing Arts in Barcelona.

As he pays tribute to the likes of Woody Allen, Robert Altman, Pedro Almodóvar, Bette Davis, and John Wayne, Cane shares fascinating anecdotes and trivia, such as Was Joan Crawford as terrible a mother as is now suggested? and Why do the sisters Olivia de Havilland and Joan Fontaine despise each other? More than one reader will discover, after having absorbed the intriguing stories in the pages of this book, that she, too, is a mythomaniac.

Available in English as A Life Too Short: The Tragedy of Robert Enke (9780224091664, 9780224091657)

Ronald Reng “An intensely moving book that transcends football.” —Guardian, on the English-language edition “Deeply affecting.”

—Times, on the English-language edition

• English-language edition won the 2011 William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award On November 10, 2009, 32-year-old Robert Enke, the goalkeeper for the German national soccer team, committed suicide by stepping in front of a train. The news sent shockwaves throughout the sporting world and led colleagues and fans to wonder what could possibly lead Enke, who was due to start for Germany at the 2010 World Cup, to take his own life. Behind the seemingly idyllic life and multimillion-dollar contracts with teams such as F. C. Barcelona and Benfica, however, Enke struggled mightily with depression. In this tremendously moving biography, the journalist Ronald Reng, a friend of the goalkeeper’s, painstakingly reconstructs Enke’s life, elegantly and thoroughly chronicling the tragedy of a devoted husband and father and a promising athlete who had worked so hard to make a name for himself among soccer’s elite, only to see his dreams and those of his family come crashing down as the disease reared its head.

David Millar “Anyone interested in the grueling world of the men in professional cycling ought to read this candid, courageous book of Millar’s journey from regret to redemption.” —Publishers Weekly “Millar unflinchingly lays bare his story, from his personal struggles to deal with his success to his path to drugs to his dark, post-arrest days to his Phoenix-like return to cycling.” —Booklist When two plainclothes policemen arrested champion cyclist David Millar in a restaurant near Biarritz in 2004 for doping, it marked the beginning of a two-year exile from cycling and the end of everything else: his multimillion-dollar contract with one of the biggest teams in the sport, his opulent lifestyle, the support of his teammates and closest friends, and the gold medal he’d won months before at the world championships. This candid memoir follows a young and idealistic cyclist from the early-morning streets of Hong Kong to the highest echelons of the sport in France where, overcome by peer pressure and the stress of remaining at the top, he started using the red blood cell–boosting substance EPO. Millar, reinstated to the sport and now an ardent critic of doping, paints an intriguing and frenetic portrait of professional cycling and of the pressures and seediness lurking beneath the surface. David Millar is a Scottish road racing cyclist. He has won five stages of the Tour de France, two of the Vuelta a España, and one stage of the Giro d’Italia. He is one of only five British men to have worn the yellow jersey at the Tour de France and was the British national road champion and national time trial champion in 2007. He won the gold medal in the time trial at the 2010 Commonwealth Games. SPORTS CYCLING, 424 PAGES, 6 X 8.75 60 B & W PHOTOS TRADE PAPER, $24.95 (CAN $27.95)

Fisiología de los deportes de resistencia en la montaña The Physiology of Mountain Endurance Sports, a translation from the French of Physiologie des sports d’endurance en montagne

Fabienne Durand and Kilian Jornet A product of the collaboration between a sports physiologist and mountain sports enthusiast and one of the world’s most distinguished mountain-sport athletes, this study examines the main body systems involved in exercise at high altitudes, discussing their capacity for adaptation and their limits. It looks at some of the common problems that affect high-altitude athletes, including bronchial hyperresponsiveness, hypoxia, and oxidative stress, and presents essential anatomical and physiological elements clearly and concisely through annotations and fullcolor photographs and figures. Each chapter also features Kilian Jornet’s comments on his strategy for dealing with his own body’s limitations and his training regimen, which he supplements with physiological data. Fabienne Durand is a professor in the department of science and techniques of physical activities and sports at the University of Perpignan Via Domitia in France and the director of the research laboratory Performance Santé Altitude. Kilian Jornet is one of the world’s foremost mountain runners, mountain bikers, and ski mountaineers. He is a three-time champion of the Skyrunner World Series and the winner of the 2011 Western States Endurance Run, a 100-mile ultramarathon that takes place in California’s Sierra Nevada Mountains.
