«Manuela y yo somos de la misma quinta, le llevo once meses. Y, para mí, verla abrazarse con la juventud, asistir al salto que han dado mi generación y la de los jóvenes que la siguen con la regeneración de la vida pública como meta, es un regalo, un verdadero estímulo para lo que me quede de camino.» Maruja Torres, periodista y escritora de larga trayectoria, nos descubre en este estimulante diálogo a Manuela Carmena, una de las personalidades políticas más valoradas por la ciudadanía. La vida en la ciudad y la vida a secas; la igualdad, la justicia, el feminismo, la muerte, el sexo, las infidelidades, el pasado y el futuro, la moda, la crisis..., todos los temas imaginables aparecen en esta conversación entre Manuela y Maruja, dos damas progresistas en la edad de la sabiduría, dos mujeres libres que siguen a pleno rendimiento. Manuela sostiene que, cuando escuchas a las personas, cuando las miras y atiendes a sus razones, esas personas se crecen, mejoran. De la mano de la profunda experiencia periodística de Maruja Torres, es esta una oportunidad única de conocer a Manuela Carmena desde su propia voz: auténtica, optimista y comprometida. Pura vida.

A riotously funny, emotionally raw New York Times bestselling novel about love, marriage, divorce, family, and the ties that bind—whether we like it or not. The death of Judd Foxman’s father marks the first time that the entire Foxman clan has congregated in years. There is, however, one conspicuous absence: Judd's wife, Jen, whose affair with his radio- shock-jock boss has recently become painfully public. Simultaneously mourning the demise of his father and his marriage, Judd joins his dysfunctional family as they reluctantly sit shiva and spend seven days and nights under the same roof. The week quickly spins out of control as longstanding grudges resurface, secrets are revealed and old passions are reawakened. Then Jen delivers the clincher: she's pregnant... “Often sidesplitting, mostly heartbreaking...[Tropper is] a more sincere, insightful version of Nick Hornby, that other master of male psyche.”—USA Today NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE STARRING JASON BATEMAN, TINA FEY, JANE FONDA, AND ADAM DRIVER

A “lively” memoir by the Hollywood legend about the making of Spartacus, with a foreword by George Clooney (Los Angeles Times). One of the world’s most iconic movie stars, Kirk Douglas has distinguished himself as a producer, philanthropist, and author of ten works of fiction and memoir. Now, more than fifty years after the release of his enduring epic Spartacus, Douglas reveals the riveting drama behind the making of the legendary gladiator film. Douglas began producing the movie in the midst of the politically charged era when Hollywood’s moguls refused to hire anyone accused of Communist sympathies. In a risky move, Douglas chose Dalton Trumbo, a blacklisted screenwriter, to write Spartacus. Trumbo was one of the “Unfriendly Ten,” men who had gone to prison rather than testify before the House Un-American Activities Committee about their political affiliations. Douglas’s source material was already a hot property, as the novel Spartacus was written by Howard Fast while he was in jail for defying HUAC. With the financial future of his young family at stake, Douglas plunged into a tumultuous production both on- and off-screen. As both producer and star of the film, he faced explosive moments with young director Stanley Kubrick, struggles with a leading lady, and negotiations with giant personalities, including Sir Laurence Olivier, Charles Laughton, Peter Ustinov, and Lew Wasserman. Writing from his heart and from his own meticulously researched archives, Kirk Douglas, at ninety-five, looks back at his audacious decisions. He made the most expensive film of its era—but more importantly, his moral courage in giving public credit to Trumbo effectively ended the notorious Hollywood blacklist. A master storyteller, Douglas paints a vivid and often humorous portrait in I Am Spartacus! The book is enhanced by newly discovered period photography of the stars and filmmakers both on and off the set.

Jane Duran's father fought in the Spanish Civil War with the Republican army and went into exile after its defeat. This poem-sequence takes as its point of departure her father's silence about the war: 'He lays down his arms. / He raises his arms over his head. / He will not tell.' In a constant search for 'the breath of the unknown', the poems move between the present and the past. Professor Paul Preston’s introduction offers a broad outline of the course and significance of the war and places the poems within their historical context.
