Item Description: Palibrio, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 216 x 140 mm. Language: Spanish . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Los cuentos.me han gustado mucho. (Algunos) son pequenas historias sobre algunas ridiculas tragedias de la posmodernidad, cuyo humor -y ahi esta, creo, su mayor merito- deriva de una mirada que se desliza de la ironia a la compasion, pues el narrador mezcla su propia voz con la del personaje, evitando asi situarse en un plano de superioridad. Lo ridiculo se convierte en una atmosfera que todos estamos obligados a respirar: nadie queda exento. Graciela Tomassini, autora de Reconfiguraciones. Estudios criticos sobre narrativa breve hispanoamericana de fin de siglo (Rosario: Fundacion Ross, 1996). Muchas de estas diminutas historias atraen tanto por no ser muy comunes como por serlo. En el viaje de la vida uno se encuentra con situaciones reales que superan la magia y excitan la imaginacion mas alla de lo que pareciera posible, hasta que lo sucedido, lo dicho, lo experimentado prueban lo contrario. Alli reside su ironia, su humor, su belleza y desconcierto. Cuentos de viaje para siete cuerdas y otras metafisicas documenta ficticiamente estas ocurrencias y sus impensables implicaciones. El malabarismo de lo inesperado se convierte en un microrrelato que perdura en un pentagrama de posibles reflexiones, conclusiones y las estelas de otras expansiones imaginativas. Estos cuentos proponen conocer y reflexionar sobre toda clase de viajes entre ciudades, paises y continentes. Pero proponen, sobre todo, viajar entre los mas diversos momentos de la experiencia cotidiana. . Es desde ese lugar privilegiado donde sugiero al lector que se asome a leer un par de textos representativos de este volumen: las Instrucciones para salir del internet y las Instrucciones para meter la pata. En ambos, el logrado homenaje al Manual de Instrucciones de Julio Cortazar demuestra que la voz mas genuina del autor, la que esta detras de todas las otras, es la de un cronopio. Favor de asegurar el cinturon de seguridad y disponerse a disfrutar de estos Cuentos de viaje. Lauro Zavala Ahora y con otro genero Ambroggio nos invita a viajar con el, experimentar el mundo como lo ve -con jubilo, admiracion y una reverencia sorprendetes Oscar Hijuelos, Premio Pulitzer.

Item Description: Marc Cortez, United States, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 196 x 124 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Deep in the heart of Denver s Five Points varrio, an innocent teenage boy is killed in a gang-related shooting. The intended target, gang-leader Benicio de los Santos, assembles his Latin Disciples into a Denver basement to plot their revenge. Does it matter that the hit planned for him killed an innocent boy? No. What matters is how careless his main enemy, the Sureno Daggers, have become. His cholo brethren demand the bloody removal of their enemy s chief, King Diaz, and the quick takeover of Sureno drug turf. But Santos recalls a lesson from Sun Tzu - that true generalship destroys rather than counters enemy plans - and so commands his soldados to do nothing. He ll avenge his wife and son s murder on his terms, when he decides. Across town, a family struggles to come to terms with their son s murder. Businessman Miguel Rodriguez wonders what led his son down to the varrio in the first place, the very streets he d fought so hard to overcome. He d renamed his son precisely to distance him from their varrio past, despite the repeated protests of his wife Carmela. Wouldn t life as a white Julian Ross, mingling with Denver s elite, offer more than a brown Julio Rodriguez? They d fought about the name change for years. And now, with Julian gone, Miguel realizes that the only way to find his lost son is to return to his childhood streets. A GANGSTER S GARDEN is a story of murder and redemption, set in Denver s Five Points varrio. Bookseller Inventory # APC9780615501871

Item Description: Kennedy Boyd, United States, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 224 x 152 mm. Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Her life as she knows it in Scotland is over. Ornithologist Luisa Ross embarks on an odyssey to Spain where, during the course of a lonely fieldwork assignment in the mountains of Mallorca, she discovers an extraordinary and mysterious world. The people who inhabit it - the enigmatic Anita Berens, the Ferrer family, the journalist Colin Cramer, her nature conservancy colleagues, Julio and Felipe, and the shaman Rafael Vargas - challenge her preconceptions at every turn. Isolated on the mountain she gets on with her field study and struggles to avoid the distractions of the nearby town. But there is no escape, and soon she finds herself confronting the severest challenge of her life so far. Comments about the author s work: The lyrical, lucid text takes the reader on a wonderfully vivid journey . . . . The Herald . . . she spins a web of words . . . . The Scotsman I would recommend it to anyone searching for the inherent magic and poetry that makes Mallorca such a special place. The Reader Sian Mackay lived for several years in Egypt and North America before returning to her native Scotland to bring up her son and daughter and work as a journalist. She founded Moubray House Press in Edinburgh s Royal Mile and later wrote several non-fiction books (as Sheila Mackay) including Lindisfarne Landscapes, Mountain Music: Mallorca, The Forth Bridge and Early Scottish Gardens: A Writer s Odyssey. By 1992 Spain had become her home from home , and Mallorca was the seedbed for a further literary transition, where the grandeur of the Sierra de Tramuntana and its mountain towns inspired Rafael s Wings.

Después 1995, una serie de apoplejías la dejó paralizada de su lado izquierdo. La Dra.

Item Description: Editorial Bruguera, Barcelona, 1982. Rústica Editorial Ilustrada. Book Condition: Excelente Estado. Edmundo Fernandez, Edmon. (illustrator). 1ª Ed. Club Del Misterio . nº 59, con 303 pp, Portada e ilustraciones de Edmundo Fernandez, Edmon.SOBRE EL ILUSTRADOR:: Edmundo (o Edmond) Fernández Ripoll, que firma simplemente con su nombre de pila, es un historietista e ilustrador español, nacido en marzo de 1938 en Barcelona.1 Su obra más conocida es Jan Europa.Armando Matías Guiu escribió sobre este autor Edmond es un dibujante metódico, acompasado, sumamente correcto. Muy cerebral. Su estilo, fotográfico. Cuando dibuja un edificio, una situación, es exacta a como existe en realidad o a como sería si existiera.El joven Edmond trabaja en una ferreteria, venta de camisetas por correspondencia y botijero en una agencia de publicidad hasta que en 1959 es contratado por Editorial Bruguera para adaptar populares seres de televisión, como Rintintín, Bonanza, Daniel Boone o Bronco.1 En los años sesenta también publica historietas sentimentales en revistas juveniles femeninas como Celia, As de Corazones, Sissi, Sissi-gráfico o Sissi-juvenil y adaptaciones de novelas como Tom Sawyer y La capitana del Yucatán para la colección Joyas Literarias Juveniles.3 Trabaja luego a través de agencias internacionales para el mercado británico (Adarés Anglians, How The West Was Won, The Handcuff Hotspurs, The Quest, Tyler the Tamer), francés (Brigade Temporelle, Mike Nelson),3 holandés (Elsje de Windt, Mimi, Meta de Bokesprong, Oberon),1 4 sueco e incluso zaireño.3 En España, realiza con guion de Víctor Mora Supernova (Súper Mortadelo, 1973) y con los de Andreu Martín Fantasía S. A. (Tío Vivo, 1975) y Los Titanes (Super Sacarino y Super Ases). En 1976 crea Eva Star para Can Can3 y en abril de 1979, Jan Europa, su serie más popular, para Mortadelo. Similar a Jan Europa es Doctor Impossible de 1984. Su última creación fue Fede y sus colegas, dramón urbano por entregas, con guón de Jaume Ribera para el TBO de Ediciones B. SOBRE EL AUTOR::Kenneth Millar, por pseudónimo Ross Macdonald (Los Gatos, California, 13 de diciembre de 1915 - Santa Bárbara, California, 11 de julio de 1983), fue un escritor estadounidense-canadiense de novela negra, célebre por haber creado el personaje del detective privado Lew Archer.Kenneth Millar estudió en Kitchener, Ontario. En el liceo encontró a la también escritora Margaret Sturm, con la que casó en 1938. Tuvieron una hija, Linda, fallecida en 1970.Comenzó su carrera literaria en revistas pulp mientras estudiaba en la Universidad de Míchigan; su primera novela fue The Dark Tunnel, 1944. Escribía entonces con el pseudónimo de John Macdonald, para evitar toda confusión con su mujer, que escribía con éxito bajo el nombre de Margaret Millar. Así su nombre se transformó en John Ross Macdonald y posteriormente en el de Ross Macdonald, a causa de lo homonimia con John Donald MacDonald;;;; Desde 1944 a 1946 fue oficial de transmisiones de un navío y luego retornó a la universidad, donde se doctoró en 1951.El detective Lew Archer hizo su primera aparición en 1946 en la novela Find the Woman; después reapareció en The Moving Target, en 1949. Esta novela, primera de una serie de ocho, formó el argumento principal del filme de Paul Newman Harper, investigador privado (1966). Durante los años cincuenta Ross volvió a California y pasó sus últimos años en Santa Bárbara, lugar donde la mayoría de sus libros están ambientados bajo el nombre apenas disimulado de Santa Teresa. Las novelas de Lew Archer de más éxito son The Goodbye Look, The Underground Man y Sleeping Beauty, y concluyen con The Blue Hammer en 1976. Lew Archer deriva su nombre del compañero de Sam Spade Miles Archer y de Lew Wallace, el novelista autor de Ben Hur.Madonald fue el primer heredero del legado literario de Dashiell Hammett y Raymond Chandler como escritores de novela negra. Al estilo de sus predecesores añade algo de densidad psicológica y mayor diseño de los caracteres. Además, las tramas de Macdonald son más complejas y rondan siempre sobre lamentables secretos de familia; los hijos pródigos son tema recurrente. Bookseller Inventory # 00113195

Item Description: Palibrio, United States, 2013. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 216 x 140 mm. Language: Spanish . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Los cuentos.me han gustado mucho. (Algunos) son pequenas historias sobre algunas ridiculas tragedias de la posmodernidad, cuyo humor -y ahi esta, creo, su mayor merito- deriva de una mirada que se desliza de la ironia a la compasion, pues el narrador mezcla su propia voz con la del personaje, evitando asi situarse en un plano de superioridad. Lo ridiculo se convierte en una atmosfera que todos estamos obligados a respirar: nadie queda exento. Graciela Tomassini, autora de Reconfiguraciones. Estudios criticos sobre narrativa breve hispanoamericana de fin de siglo (Rosario: Fundacion Ross, 1996). Muchas de estas diminutas historias atraen tanto por no ser muy comunes como por serlo. En el viaje de la vida uno se encuentra con situaciones reales que superan la magia y excitan la imaginacion mas alla de lo que pareciera posible, hasta que lo sucedido, lo dicho, lo experimentado prueban lo contrario. Alli reside su ironia, su humor, su belleza y desconcierto. Cuentos de viaje para siete cuerdas y otras metafisicas documenta ficticiamente estas ocurrencias y sus impensables implicaciones. El malabarismo de lo inesperado se convierte en un microrrelato que perdura en un pentagrama de posibles reflexiones, conclusiones y las estelas de otras expansiones imaginativas. Estos cuentos proponen conocer y reflexionar sobre toda clase de viajes entre ciudades, paises y continentes. Pero proponen, sobre todo, viajar entre los mas diversos momentos de la experiencia cotidiana. . Es desde ese lugar privilegiado donde sugiero al lector que se asome a leer un par de textos representativos de este volumen: las Instrucciones para salir del internet y las Instrucciones para meter la pata. En ambos, el logrado homenaje al Manual de Instrucciones de Julio Cortazar demuestra que la voz mas genuina del autor, la que esta detras de todas las otras, es la de un cronopio.

Se encarga de la investigación Lew Archer.
