About this Item: PUNTO DE LECTURA, United States, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: Spanish . Brand New Book. Todo cambia, pero nos quedan los recuerdos. Se levantaran edificios, se asfaltaran los arrabales, se urbanizaran los descampados, pero tu recordaras siempre la geografia de este verano. La realidad es una alegoria para la memoria. Todo lo que nos afecta permanece en nosotros, aunque se pierda en el tiempo. En el verano de 1963 Espana se muestra triste, espesa y encogida. El tiempo parece haberse detenido en el calendario y a todos les duelen los pies al caminar por la vida, como si les hicieran dano los zapatos. Pero en cualquier momento la suerte puede cambiar: por las grietas del presente gotea un poco de esperanza. Este verano seco, caluroso y desatinado es el del despertar de Leon Egea. Alejado del ambiente claustrofobico de su pueblo y herido por la literatura, comienza a trabajar en la editorial Universo y vive su primer amor. En los momentos dificiles es importante apostar por el futuro en comodos o incomodos plazos. Porque el futuro no sera de los indiferentes. Pero hay que poner nombre a las cosas. Es lo que las hace reales, lo que les da consistencia. La ciudad detenida en el tiempo es Granada, Consuelo es la mujer bella e inevitable de la que se enamora Leon y el porvenir no lleva otro nombre que el del compromiso. Si, todo empieza con el nombre. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION In the summer of 1963, Spain is sad, heavy, and withdrawn. Time seems to have stood still and everyone s feet hurt from walking through life, as though the problem were their shoes. But at any moment, luck can change: through the cracks in the present, a little bit of hope is leaking. This dry, hot, foolish summer is the awakening of Leon Egea. Far from the claustrophobic atmosphere of his town and wounded by literature, he starts working at Universo publishing house and experiences his first love. The city lost in time is Granada, Consuelo is the beautiful and unavoidable woman whom Leon falls in love with, and the future has no other name than commitment. Seller Inventory # AAS9788466326063

About this Item: Doolittle Project Publishing, United States, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. As Spain continues to struggle with economic depression, one of the country s best-loved poets tells how appreciating small mementos and everyday objects can help fight back against the gloom. Luis Garcia Montero s insights reach beyond the turmoil of euro-zone austerity and speak to wider audiences beset by the instabilities of a rapidly-changing world. Now, for the first time, his prose work is available to English-speaking audiences in A Form of Resistance. The stories stem from the objects and the memories that inspire and reassure the author: the Zippo lighter that sparked his adolescent independence, his first vinyl record, an old packet of Goya cigarettes, and letters he wrote as a young boy to his father. These are personal vignettes but they also touch a universal nerve; they connect him - and us - to our sense of place in the world, a place where long forgotten events and experiences are recovered through keepsakes and utilitarian items. Holding on to that thread of history and keeping those memories alive is what Garcia Montero describes as a form of resistance. His original Spanish-language book Una forma de resistencia took its inspiration from John Steinbeck s The Grapes of Wrath. Garcia Montero writes: The farmers of Oklahoma, condemned by drought and the banks, immigrated to California. They had to choose carefully which things they would lose forever. Against the so-called creative destruction of capitalism, metaphors and mementos preserve free will, love of life and respect for the past we embody. Luis Garcia Montero was born in Granada, Spain in 1958. His award-winning work includes Habitaciones separadas (Loewe Prize and Spain s National Literature Prize, 1994) and La intimidad de la serpiente (National Critics Prize, 2003). His novel, Manana no sera lo que Dios quiera (Alfaguara, 2009), won Book of the Year from the Booksellers Guild of Madrid. Garcia Montero s poetry in English, translated by Katie King, is published online at Words Without Borders and in print in New European Poets by Graywolf Press. Katie King is a journalist, writer, and literary translator. Her career in journalism and publishing includes working as a correspondent for Reuters in Latin America, teaching journalism at George Washington University School of Media and Public Affairs in Washington, DC, and leading a variety of digital and online news and publishing projects in the U.S. and Europe since the mid-1990s.Katie has lived, studied, and worked in Spain. She is currently pursuing a PhD in Hispanic Studies at the University of Washington in Seattle. Seller Inventory # APC9780692453735

Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Luis Garcia Montero (Granada, 1958) is one of the most read and influential Spanish writers today. He is an essayist, fiction writer, journalist, professor of Spanish Literature at the University of Granada, and, principally, a poet. He has received numerous important honors, like the National Poetry Prize (1994) and the National Critic s Prize (2003), both in Spain, and the Poets of the Latin World Prize (2010), in Mexico. He has published eleven books of poetry, represented in The World So Often, his first anthology in English. Luis Garcia Montero s poetry has commonly been considered - even by the author himself - as realist, yet this is a misinterpretation. His poetic subject doesn t try to trap the reader in an illusory world offered up as natural, but rather to break with the automatic perception of things and facts, and so avoid catharsis. What s crucial here is the use of a language that does not try to be transparent, a simple instrument of communication, and that risks its neck to be noticed. It s a language that is both reflection and matter, and thus, has the agency to change things, the capacity to transform. Moreover, this language is not limited to the lyrical tradition, it doesn t discriminate against words in any way, it becomes democratized. By combining prosaism and tropological density, it searches for a discourse with a greater power of representation and participation. In short, Garcia Montero s work achieves a balance between sentimental rigor and intellectual outpouring, rejects solipsism, and goes deeper into dialogical poetry.
