Godine first published this towering work of Latin American literature in 1981, to a front page New York Times review. Now reissued in softcover with a new introduction, the book, often mentioned in the same breath as Borges, was praised by Camus and writers as various as Thomas Mann, Graham Greene, Pablo Neruda, Salman Rushdie, and Colm Tóibin. Sabato was an important political figure as well as a novelist, exposing the state terrorism of Argentina's "dirty war" while writing about everything from metaphysics to tango. On Heroes and Tombs is his masterpiece. In his obituary in 2011, the New York Times wrote, "In 1972, the Chilean poet Pablo Neruda listed Mr. Sabato among the Latin American writers who displayed 'greater vitality and imagination than anything since the great Russian novels' of the 19th century. On Heroes and Tombs, the story of a young man trying to find his way in life in Buenos Aires, is considered his most important work of fiction. But many people also know Mr. Sabato for his work in helping Argentina heal when democracy was restored in 1983 after seven years of military dictatorship." This book is woven around a violent crime: the scion of a prominent Argentinian family, Alejandra, shoots her father and burns herself alive over his corpse. The story shifts between perspectives to reveal the lives of those closest to her, telling of Martin, her troubled lover; Bruno, a writer who loved her mother; and Fernando, her father, who believes himself hunted by a secret, international organization of the blind. Exploring the tumult of Buenos Awes in the 1950s, Heroes illuminates its characters against burning churches and corporate greed. An examination of Argentinian history and culture, it reveals the country at every level, leading its reader into a world of passion, philosophy, and paranoia that still persists. Book jacket.

Alberto Breccia is recognized as one of the greatest international cartoonists in the history of comics and Mort Cinder is considered one of his finest achievements. Created in collaboration with the Argentine writer Héctor Germán Oesterheld, best known in the U.S. for his politically incendiary sci-fi masterpiece, the Eisner Award-winning The Eternaut, Mort Cinder is a horror story with political overtones. This episodic serial, written and drawn between 1962–1964, is drawn by Breccia in moody chiaroscuro. The artist’s rubbery, expressionistic faces capture every glint in the eyes of the grave robbers, sailors, and slaves that populate these stories; while the slash of stripes of prisoners’ uniforms, the trapeziums of Babylon, and more create distinct and evocative milieus.

BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Mary Balogh's The Secret Mistress. Born a commoner, Hannah Reid has been Duchess of Dunbarton since she was nineteen years old. Now her husband is dead and, more beautiful than ever at thirty, Hannah has her freedom at last. To the shock of a conventional friend, she announces her intention to take a lover—and not just any lover, but the most dangerous and delicious man in all of upper-class England: Constantine Huxtable. Constantine’s illegitimacy has denied him the title of earl, so now he denies himself nothing. Rumored to be living the easy life of a sensualist on his country estate, he always chooses recent widows for his short-lived affairs. Hannah will fit the bill nicely. But once these two passionate and scandalous figures find each other, they discover that it isn’t so easy to extricate oneself from the fires of desire—without getting singed.

Psychologically tense and as fast-paced as The Hypnotist, the third book in the Joona Linna series by Lars Kepler is already a worldwide sensation, appealing to fans of Stieg Larsson and Jo Nesbo. Detective Inspector Joona Linna, under internal review by the National Police for an alleged infraction, is on leave to solve some troubling personal business when he is called in to "observe" the investigation of a gruesome and strange murder at Birgittagarden, a youth home for wayward teenage girls. But it's not long before Linna is drawn deeply into the intricate, disturbing case. Intriguing, astonishing, and with all of the suspense that first captured audiences in The Hypnotist, The Fire Witness is Lars Kepler at his most psychologically complex and thrilling.

Este libro historico puede tener numerosos errores tipograficos y texto faltante. Los compradores pueden descargar una copia gratuita escaneada del libro original (sin errores tipograficos) desde la editorial. No indexado. No se muestra. 1911 edition. Extracto: ...de valor espiritual ha pasado por sus filas. En un pensador tan singular como Berdiaeff se trasunta su juventud marxista. Es que el marxismo significo un poderoso momento en la historia y todas las grotescas ridiculeces a que lo exponen sus partidarios y usufructuarios no deben oscurecer esa verdad. Marx ha sido un genio, a pesar de lo que afirmen los stalinistas. Pero no ha habido genio que no se haya equivocado y en cierto modo el poder de los genios se mide por el alcance de sus equivocaciones. Schopenhauer dijo de Aristoteles que habia constituido una gran calamidad historica. Pero lo fue precisamente a causa de su genio, no a pesar de el. Vastos espacios de tiempo fueron dominados por sus aciertos, pero tambien oscurecidos por sus errores y, muy especialmente, por la necedad de sus seguidores. Nos dio la logica y buena parte de la filosofia; pero tambien, dos mil anos despues de su muerte, nos infirio aquellos profesores que se negaban a mirar los satelites de Jupiter por el anteojo de Galileo, porque el maestro no los mencionaba en ninguna parte. La parte mas valiosa de la doctrina de Marx es, sin duda, su interpretacion de la historia y de la sociedad. Hasta el prevalecia la tendencia a estudiar una ideologia, una filosofia, una escuela artistica, intrinsecamente, sin relacion con los problemas sociales de su tiempo y, sobre todo, con un absoluto desden por los factores mas bajos; habria parecido una muestra de mal gusto establecer algun vinculo entre la pintura renacentista y el surgimiento de la burguesia. De una vez para todas, Marx...

Can any woman resist the temptation of his touch? Maximillian Burke has always prided himself on being the man every mother would want her daughter to marry. But after his scoundrel of a brother makes off with Max's bride, Max discovers it's more satisfying to be a rogue than the perfect gentleman. Forced to flee London after a duel gone wrong, Max seeks refuge at Cadgwyck Manor on the lonely coast of Cornwall, a place as wild and savage as his current temper. The tumbledown manor comes complete with its own ghost but oddly enough, it's not the White Lady of Cadgwyck who begins to haunt Max's heated dreams but his no-nonsense housekeeper. The last thing prim and proper housekeeper Anne Spencer needs is a new master, especially one as brooding and gorgeous as the Earl of Dravenwood. Even as she schemes to be rid of him, she finds herself irresistibly drawn into his strong, muscular arms. When Max vows to solve the mystery of Cadgwyck's ghost, he doesn't realize it will put both of their hearts at risk and tempt them to surrender to a pleasure as delicious as it is dangerous. Book 2 of 2 in the Burke Brothers Series, which includes The Pleasure of Your Kiss and The Temptation of Your Touch “This is quintessential Medeiros! As readers know well from her impressive body of work, she never fails to entertain!”—Starred Review from Booklist “Teresa Medeiros may only release one book a year, but she certainly makes it worth the wait! If you enjoy tender, beautifully-written historical romance with a gothic feel and sprinkled with humor, do yourself a favor and pick up The Temptation of Your Touch. I can’t recommend it enough!”—The Romance Dish “Delicious, witty and absolutely riveting! Abounding with wily servants, a beautiful ghost, humor, madcap antics, a hidden treasure, a scenic setting, mystery, romance and true love, this book should be a favorite. Delectable!”—Romance Junkies Reviews “A seductive mystery that captured my heart.”—Fresh Fiction “One of my all-time favorite authors.”—New York Times bestselling author Sherrilyn Kenyon “Few authors have Medeiros’s storytelling talents.”—Romantic Times “Try a novel by Teresa Medeiros and you will swear it was written just for you.”—New York Times bestselling author Lisa Kleypas Historical romance, Gothic romance, Duke romance, Master Housekeeper romance, Ghosts
