Now, in his long-awaited auto- biography, he opens up about his earliest years in postwar Kent; learn- ing guitar and forming a band with Mick Jagger and Brian Jones; the rise to prominence of the Stones and the famous shows, tours, and records; his occasionally fraught relationship with Jagger and his romances with Anita Pallenberg and Patti Hansen; his struggles with drug addiction and his run-ins with the law in various countries—noth- ing is off limits. Richards’s story is, in many ways, the history of rock music itself and a cultural snapshot of the last four decades. Keith Richards, miembro de los Rolling Stones y generalmente consider- ado uno de los mejores guitarristas del rock de todos los tiempos, se ha dedicado a vivir una vida bajo sus propios términos—aun cuando esos términos han excedido por mucho las convenciones. Ahora, en su auto- biografía muy esperada, se sincera sobre su niñez en Kent de la posguer- ra; aprender a tocar la guitarra y formar una banda con Mick Jagger y Brian Jones; el ascenso de los Rolling Stones y los famosos conciertos, las giras y los discos; su tensa relación con Jagger y sus romances con Anita Pallenberg y Patti Hansen; su lucha contra la adicción a las dro- gas y sus encuentros con la ley en varios países—todo se pone sobre la mesa. La historia de Richards es, en muchos sentidos, la historia del rock mismo y un vistazo cultural de las últimas cuatro décadas. Keith Richards is an English musician and songwriter and the guitarist for the Rolling Stones, with whom he has sold more than 200 million albums. He lives in Weston, Connecticut. AUTOBIOGRAPHY, 516 PAGES, 6 X 9.25 35 COLOR PHOTOS, 20 B & W PHOTOS, FOUR-COLOR INTERIOR TRADE PAPER, $24.95 (CAN $27.95) ISBN: 9788499420806 RIGHTS: US, CANADA, AUSTRALIA & UK GLOBAL RHYTHM PRESS SEPTEMBER Sample interior image Confesiones de Michael Jackson Las cintas del rabino Second edition A translation of The Michael Jackson Tapes (9781593156022) Shmuley Boteach • Part of the Memorias series, which includes AC/DC, AC/DC: Maximum Rock ‘N’ Roll (9788496879355); Dylan sobre Dylan, Bob Dylan: The Essential Interviews (9788496879232); Memorias de un Rolling Stone, Ronnie: The Autobiography (9788496879331); La música es mi amante, Music Is My Mistress: Duke Ellington (9788496879386); and Rumbo a la gloria, Bound for Glory (9788496879379) In 2000 and 2001, Michael Jackson sat down with his friend and spiritual confidant Shmuley Boteach to record a series of intimate and revealing conversations. The resulting 30 hours of tape present the pop icon at his most forthright, as he discusses his emotional pain and profound loneliness, his longing to be loved, and the emptiness of fame. Boteach walks Jackson through the most difficult moments of his childhood, his tortured relationships with his siblings, and the hurtful conflict with his father. The singer also discusses, in his own words, his distrust of women, his views on God and religion, and his terror of growing old. These pages provide startling insight into the inner life of one of the most famous, celebrated, controversial, and enigmatic performers of all time. Entre el 2000 y el 2001, Michael Jackson se reunió con su amigo y confidente espiritual Shmuley Boteach para grabar una serie de con- versaciones íntimas y reveladoras. Las 30 horas de cinta resultantes presentan al icono pop más honesto que nunca mientras descubre sus hondas heridas y soledades multitudinarias, su anhelo de amores impolutos y los vacíos rebosantes de fama. Boteach y Jackson conver- san sobre los momentos más espinosos de la niñez de este último, su torturada relación con sus hermanos y el lacerante conflicto con su padre. El cantante discute también, en sus propias palabras, su desconfianza del sexo opuesto, sus pensamientos sobre Dios y la religión y su pánico a la vejez. Estas páginas proveen una asombrosa perspicacia a la vida privada de uno de los artistas más famosos, céle- bres, polémicos y enigmáticos de todos los tiempos. Shmuley Boteach is an American Orthodox rabbi, a radio and televi- sion host, and the author of Honoring the Child Spirit and Shalom in the Home. He lives in Englewood, New Jersey. BIOGRAPHY, 288 PAGES, 6 X 8.5 TRADE PAPER, $19.95 (CAN $21.95) ISBN: 9788496879508 RIGHTS: US, CANADA, AUSTRALIA & UK GLOBAL RHYTHM PRESS FEBRUARY IPG – FALL 2011 New Titles 2 Excerpt: Shmuley Boteach: ¿Dios siempre ha respondido a tus oraciones? Michael Jackson: Por lo general, sí, desde luego que sí. Por eso creo. SB: ¿Y sientes que ha estado contigo acompañándote durante algunas de esas etapas difíciles de tu vida? MJ: No ha habido una sola cosa que le haya pedido y no me haya concedido. No son cosas materiales, claro. Te voy a decir algo que nunca le he dicho a nadie, y además de verdad, no tengo por qué mentirte y Dios sabe que no lo estoy haciendo. Creo que el éxito y la fama que he conseguido, que he anhelado, los deseaba porque en realidad buscaba que me quisieran. Nada más. Ésa es la verdad. Necesitaba que la gente me quisiera, que me quisiera sinceramente, porque nunca me he sentido verdaderamente querido. Ya he dicho que conozco mi talento. Pensaba que si lo perfeccionaba, la gente tal vez me querría más. Sólo deseaba que me quisieran porque me parece muy importante que te quieran y decirle a la gente que la quieres y mirarla a los ojos y decírselo. IPG – FALL 2011 New Titles 3 I Am Ozzy Memorias de Ozzy Osbourne A translation of I Am Ozzy (9781847443465) Ozzy Osbourne • Part of the Memorias series, which includes AC/DC, AC/DC: Maximum Rock ‘N’ Roll (9788496879355); Dylan sobre Dylan, Bob Dylan: The Essential Interviews (9788496879232); Memorias de un Rolling Stone, Ronnie: The Autobiography (9788496879331); La música es mi amante, Music Is My Mistress: Duke Ellington(9788496879386); and Rumbo a la gloria, Bound for Glory (9788496879379) Born into poverty—the entire family slept in a single room—Ozzy Osbourne endured a challenging childhood. It was a struggle from which he sought shelter in music, and his time as a member of Black Sabbath revolutionized heavy metal and catapulted him to worldwide fame. With the acclaim, however, came the excesses and heartbreaks; and in this engaging and revealing autobiography, Osbourne writes as candidly about his struggles with addictive substances and the loss of close friends as he does about his legendary stage performances and tours, and also discusses his more recent reinvention as a reality TV star. This is the definitive insider’s account of the heavy metal scene from the 1970s through the 1990s and a more general cultural history of that same period. Heavy metal, rock and roll, and pop culture fans alike will find this essential reading. Nacido en la pobreza—su familia entera dormía en una sola habitación—Ozzy Osbourne tuvo una niñez difícil. Fue una lucha de la cual consiguió un refugio en la música, y su tiempo como un miembro de Black Sabbath sirvió tanto para revolucionar al heavy metal como para catapultarlo a la fama. Con la aclamación, sin embargo, vinieron también los excesos y desengaños; y en esta autobiografía simpática y reveladora, Osbourne escribe tan franca- mente sobre su lucha con las substancias adictivas y la pérdida de amigos cercanos así como sobre sus interpretaciones y giras legendarias, y discute también su reinvención reciente como una estrella de la telerrealidad. Éste es el relato definitivo del mundo del heavy metal desde los 70 hasta los 90 y una historia cultural general del mismo periodo. Los fanáticos del heavy metal, el rock y la cultura popular considerarán esto lectura imprescindible. Ozzy Osbourne is an English singer-songwriter who has sold more than 100 million albums during his more than 40-year career. Having first risen to prominence as the lead vocalist for the heavy metal band Black Sabbath, he also achieved multiplatinum status as a solo artist. He lives in Los Angeles.

This volume joins In His Own Write and A Spaniard in the Works, two books that perfectly capture Lennon’s offbeat humor and his flare for a clever turn of phrase. The collec- tions are presented first in Spanish, then again in their entirety in English, thus appealing to a wide range of readers. En 1964 y 1965, cuando los Beatles estaban en la cima de su popu- laridad, John Lennon publicó dos obras cortas en las cuales se juntan su caprichosa prosa, poesía y dibujos. Este volumen reúne a Por su propio cuento y Un españolito en obras, dos libros que capturan de manera perfecta su sentido de humor excéntrico y su capacidad para componer un giro ingenioso. Ambas colecciones se presentan primera- mente en español, y entonces otra vez en inglés en su totalidad, de tal manera atrayendo un amplio rango de lectores. John Lennon was an English musician and singer-songwriter who gained worldwide fame as a member of the Beatles.

The usual trappings of rock- and-roll superstardom are portrayed—in fascinating anecdotes, Summers describes socializing with Eric Clapton, playing with Jimi Hendrix, and getting high with John Belushi—but never romanticized. Un vistazo humorístico, conmovedor y honesto del precio de la fama, la autobiografía de Andy Summers discute su niñez de vez en cuando turbulenta y su afinidad temprana por la guitarra, así como la fama y el privilegio que se ganó como miembro del renombrado grupo de rock de los 80 Police. Se describe el boato habitual del estrellato—en chispeantes anécdotas, Summers cuenta sus experien- cias andando con Eric Clapton, tocando con Jimi Hendrix y endrogándose con John Belushi—pero nunca se idealiza. Andy Summers is an English composer and guitarist best known for his work as a member of the Police during the 1980s. The Edge is the guitarist, keyboardist, and backing vocalist of the band U2.

The origins and characteristics of flamenco that have been considered canonical by notable authorities, such as the singer Antonio Mairena and the poet Ricardo Molina, are, in some cases, far from indisputable, and the author argues that they should be considered milestones rather than endpoints in the evolution of the art. Relying on ample historical and contemporary sources, this book takes a more heterodox view of flamenco. En esta obra accesible pero erudita, José Luis Ortiz Nuevo se declara contra los puristas quienes, a la creación de cualquier nueva forma del arte, han tratado de manifestarla inmediata- mente cerrada o impermeable al cambio o a la innovación de cualquier tipo. Los orígenes y las características de flamenco que han sido considerados canónicos por las autoridades nota- bles, como el cantador Antonio Mairena y el poeta Ricardo Molina, están, en unos casos, lejos de ser indisputables, y el autor sostiene que deben ser considerados hitos en lugar de puntos finales en la evolución de la técnica. Basándose en amplias fuentes históricas y contemporáneas, este libro tiene una visión más heterodoxa del flamenco. José Luis Ortiz Nuevo is a noted flamenco historian and expert and the author of Las mil y una historias de Pericón de Cádiz.

Through research and investigation, Ratliff identifies Coltrane not just as a preeminent jazz musician but as one of the great creators and innovators of his time in any field. Más que una simple biografía de John Coltrane, este libro es un examen exhaustivo de su sonido y su obra única, recorriendo la trayectoria del saxofonista desde sus primeras actuaciones con una banda de la marina hasta los discos grabados a las puertas de la muerte, cuando ya estaba establecido como una figura venerada dentro de la música. A través de la investigación e indagación, Ratliff identifica a Coltrane no sólo como uno de los más importantes músicos del jazz, pero también como uno de los grandes creadores e innovadores de su época. Ben Ratliff is the jazz critic for the New York Times and the author of The Jazz Ear: Conversations over Music. He lives in New York City.

From his days in South Carolina through his later years as a venerated elder statesman, his role in the development of bebop, his time as a bandleader, and his involvement in the Afro-Cuban music movement are discussed.

Esta biografía de Dizzy Gillespie conjuga el relato de la leyenda del jazz con los testimonios de quienes lo conocieron. Desde su infancia en Carolina del Sur hasta sus años de venerable pontificado, se rela- tan su papel en el desarrollo del bebop, su tiempo como líder de banda y su participación en el movimiento de la música afrocubana.

Pirsig A first-person account of the narrator’s motorcycle journey with his 11-year-old son Chris is the backdrop for a philosophical discussion about the meaning of quality in this renowned novel from 1974. As the two travel from Minnesota to California, the artful maintenance required to keep the motorcycle running becomes a metaphor for how to combine the cold, rational world of technology and the warm, imaginative world of art. The daily care of the mechanical pieces, their correct functions, and the necessary equilibrium of the parts that make up the whole encapsulate the history of Western philosophy. The magic of this book, which has touched millions of readers all over the world, resides in its ability to captivate the read- er with a heartwarming story while browsing philosophical heritage from Socrates to Kant, simultaneously examining the valuable coun- terweight of philosophical currents from the East. Un relato en primera persona del viaje en motocicleta del narrador con Chris, su hijo de once años, es el telón de fondo para una dis- cusión filosófica sobre el significado de la calidad en esta novela famosa de 1974. Mientras los dos viajan desde Minnesota hacia California, el arte del mantenimiento necesario para mantener la motocicleta corriendo pasa a ser una metáfora de cómo conjugar el frío y racional mundo tecnológico y el cálido e imaginativo mundo del arte. El cuidado diario de las piezas mecánicas, su funcionamien- to correcto y el equilibrio necesario de las partes que componen el todo resumen la historia de la filosofía occidental. La magia de este libro, que marcó a millones de lectores en todo el mundo, reside en su habilidad de cautivar al lector mediante una entrañable historia mientras explora el patrimonio filosófico desde Sócrates hasta Kant, al mismo tiempo examinando el valioso contrapeso de las corrientes filosóficas orientales. Robert M. Pirsig is a writer and philosopher famous for his Metaphysics of Quality theory. He is the author of Lila: An Inquiry into Morals. He lives in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Hasta que, de pronto, las cosas empezaron a desarrollarse a una velocidad de vértigo. No sabría decir si era el shoshei quien se movía o si era yo, pero, en cualquier caso, noté que empezaba a marearme sin remedio y que el estó- mago se me revolvía. Estaba ya convencido de que mis días habían llegado a su fin y que el mareo me mataría sin remisión, cuando, de repente, ¡plaf!, sentí un fuerte golpe y mi visión se nubló con miles de estrellas. Mi discernimiento, claro hasta ese momento, se nubló. A partir de ahí, por muchos esfuerzos que haga, no me acuerdo de nada. Al volver en mí, el shoshei había desaparecido; tampoco había ni rastro de ninguno de mis numerosos hermanos. Ni de mi madre, que hasta entonces había sido la persona más importante de mi vida. Cuando me desperté del todo, descubrí que estaba en un sitio aterrador. Comparado con mi antigua madriguera, aquel lugar estaba excesivamente iluminado. De hecho era tan cegador que los ojos me dolían, hasta el punto de que apenas podía mantenerlos abiertos. ¿Qué me estaba sucediendo? Comencé a arrastrarme como pude, intentando salir de allí, pero la experiencia fue de lo más dolorosa.

Vales “One of the books that has exerted the most influence on me.” —Gabriel García Márquez • $20,000 marketing budget This chilling fictionalized account starkly describes the horrific events that coincided with the Great Plague that struck London in 1665. With surgical precision, this book becomes witness to the most heroic and most selfish human behavior and includes episodes ranging from the emotional to the terrifying. This extraordinary examination includes vivid detail of the rising death toll and the transformation of the city as its citizens flee and those who remain live in fear and despair. The stories of appalling human suffering and grief give this dramatic narrative its compelling historical veracity.

Concealed under a facade of mocking humor, this series of short stories deals with God and Christianity. The title story—about 11 letters written by the archangel Satan to archangels Gabriel and Michael—conveys Twain’s hilarious and corrosive religious vision. Other short stories in the book include a bedtime story about a family of cats and an essay explaining why an anaconda is morally superior to man. Escrito entre 1870 y 1909, este libro consta de pequeñas dia- tribas anti-bíblicas que muestran la profundidad del escepticismo religioso de Mark Twain. Oculta tras una fachada de humor burlesco, esta serie de historias cortas tiene que ver con Dios y el cristianismo. La historia del título—la cual trata de 11 cartas escritas por el arcángel Satanás a los arcángeles Gabriel y Miguel—transmite la hilarante y corrosiva visión religiosa de Twain.

In the first story, the lark struggles to adapt to the world of men, but by the last, man calls to the lark to give himself over to the bird. Taken as a whole, the compendium could be considered a novel about Siena and the Tuscan coun- tryside imbued throughout with Tozzi’s profound respect for nature, both urban and rural. Una colección de fragmentos narrativos al parecer dispares, los relatos en este libro tienen una sola cosa en común: en todos ellos aparece, de forma casual o secundaria, una alondra—sím- bolo de la armonía y del acuerdo entre hombres y naturaleza. El primer fragmento describe la dificultad de la alondra para adap- tarse al mundo dominado por el hombre, pero por el último, el hombre llama a la alondra para entregarse a ella. El conjunto podría definirse como una novela de Siena y de los campos de Toscana, imbuido siempre por el respeto de Tozzi por la natu- raleza, tanto urbana como rural. Federigo Tozzi was a late 19th- and early 20th-century Italian journalist and writer.

Though he spent most of his life in England, James considered New York, where he lived as a child, to be his home, and its influence is present in much of his work. Together these writings reveal not only professed love for the city but also anger toward the changes to the city that James witnessed in his lifetime. One of James’s most critically acclaimed novellas, Washington Square, is included, as are some of his stories that have never before been translated into Spanish, such as “Crawford’s Consistency,” “The Impressions of a Cousin,” and “The Story of a Masterpiece.” Todas las historias de Henry James ambientadas en Nueva York se recopilan por primera vez en esta antología, compilada por el escritor contemporáneo Colm Tóibín. Aunque pasó la mayoría de su vida en Inglaterra, James consideraba Nueva York, dónde vivó como niño, como su hogar, y su influencia está presente en mucha de su obra. En conjunto, estos escritos revelan no sólo un amor profesado por la ciudad pero también ira hacia los cambios a la ciudad a los que James fue testigo durante su vida. Una de sus novelas más acla- madas por la crítica, Washington Square, está incluida, así como algunos de sus cuentos nunca antes traducidos al español, como “La coherencia de Crawford,” “Historia de una obra maestra” e “Impresiones de una prima.” Henry James was an American-born writer who spent much of his life in England.

I love its sound.” —James R. Frakes, New York Times Book Review, on the English-language edition “The title novella is the prize. . . . Something unique and marvelous: a story that is at once an evocation of nature’s miracles and realities and a probing of human mysteries. Wise, witty, wonderful, Maclean spins his tales, casts his flies, fishes the rivers and the woods for what he remembers from his youth in the Rockies.” —Publishers Weekly, on the English-language edition In “The River of Life,” the first and longest of the three autobio- graphical stories that make up this book, a strict father transmits his passion for fly-fishing to his two sons, Norman and Paul.

Convertidos ya en buenos pescadores, mi hermano y yo nos dimos cuenta de que nuestro padre no era un maestro del lanzado, pese a ser preciso, tener estilo y calzarse un guante en la mano de lanzar. Mientras se abrochaba el guante momentos antes de impartir una clase, solía decir: «Éste es un arte que se ejecuta entre las diez y las dos con un ritmo de cuatro tiempos». Como buen escocés y presbiteriano, mi padre creía que el hombre era un desastre por naturaleza y que había perdido su estado de gracia primigenio. No sé por qué, de pequeño lo interpreté como que se había vuelto serio de repente. En cuanto a mi padre, nunca llegué a saber si creía que Dios era matemático, pero sin duda él creía que a Dios se le daba bien contar, y que sólo captando los ritmos divinos seríamos capaces de recuperar la fuerza y la belleza. A diferencia de muchos presbiterianos, mi padre empleaba a menudo la palabra «bello» o «hermoso».

When the Khmer Rouge took power in April 1975, Denise Affonço and her family were deported to the countryside, as were most of the inhabitants of Cambodian cities. During this four-year dictatorship, the popu- lation had to endure famines, disease, and systematic executions. This chronicle is based on the notebooks she wrote in 1979, just months after being released, while preparing her testimony in the trial of Pol Pot, the main leader of the Khmer Rouge. Este libro apasionante es uno de los pocos informes publicados sobre el terrorífico régimen que se mantuvo en el poder en Camboya entre 1975 y 1979—y uno de los más desgarradores relatos sobre la opresión política que ha salido a la luz en los últi- mos años. Cuando los jemeres rojos tomaron el poder en abril de 1975, Denise Affonço y su familia fueron deportados al campo, como la mayoría de los habitantes de las ciudades camboyanas. Durante esta dictadura de cuatro años, la población tuvo que soportar hambrunas, enfermedades y ejecuciones sistemáticas. Esta crónica se basa en los cuadernos que escribió en 1979, pocos meses después de ser liberada, mientras preparaba su testimonio en el proceso contra Pol Pot, principal líder de los jemeres rojos. Denise Affonço is a writer and former employee of the French embassy in Cambodia. Daniel Gascón is a translator.

The collapse of banker Noel Schoudler exemplifies the end of the fortunes amassed during the 19th century and the greed of speculators who succumbed to the global financial crisis of 1929. Meanwhile, Urbain de la Monnerie, a blind octogenari- an and inhabitant of Mauglaives castle, embodies the decadence of an old aristocracy that is about to disappear. By contrast, noth- ing seems to stop the rise of upstart Simon Lachaume, a political- ly cold, cerebral, self-made man. This novel provides an accurate portrayal of public and private French society between wars. Retratando la sociedad francesa de la Tercera República, esta his- toria sigue la caída de la vieja guardia de los clanes de Schoudler y Monnerie.

No te conoce nadie. No. Pero yo te canto. Yo canto para luego tu perfil y tu gracia. La madurez insigne de tu conocimiento. Tu apetencia de muerte y el gusto de su boca. La tristeza que tuvo tu valiente alegría. Tardará mucho tiempo en nacer, si es que nace, un andaluz tan claro, tan rico de aventura. Yo canto su elegancia con palabras que gimen y recuerdo una brisa triste por los olivos. No te conoce el toro ni la higuera, ni caballos ni hormigas de tu casa. No te conoce el niño ni la tarde porque te has muerto para siempre. No te conoce el lomo de la piedra, ni el raso negro donde te destrozas. No te conoce tu recuerdo mudo porque te has muerto para siempre El otoño vendrá con caracolas, uva de niebla y montes agrupados, pero nadie querrá mirar tus ojos porque te has muerto para siempre.

Tales of passion, ambition, and decep- tion—from a treatise on the pointlessness of marriage to an exploration of how social aspirations can have a negative effect on family and community life—are pulled together by the com- mon thread of irony. At times farcical and at times tragic, Life’s Little Ironies reflects the humor and satire that permeate Hardy’s body of work. Escrita originalmente en 1894 y revisada en varias ocasiones, esta colección de cuentos de Thomas Hardy recoge muchos de los temas y las inquietudes de sus mejores novelas, principal- mente las restricciones de la vida burguesa y las reglas sociales que la dictan. Historias de pasión, ambición y engaño—desde un tratado sobre la inutilidad del matrimonio hasta una exploración de cómo las aspiraciones sociales pueden tener un efecto negati- vo en la vida familiar y comunitaria—están ligadas por el hilo común de la ironía. A veces absurdo y a veces trágico, Las pequeñas ironías de la vida refleja el humor y la sátira que impregnan la obra de Hardy.

The captain has retired from nautical life and is compelled to sell his boat and rent out his property in order to be able to live peacefully for the last few years of his life—and provide his daughter with a decent inheritance. But his plan is threatened in one tragic instant, forcing him to betray either the strong moral values he is famous for or the one human being he loves most in the world. De la mente maestra de Joseph Conrad viene la historia del capitán Whalley, un héroe del mar con un código moral inde- structible en lo que se refiere al honor y al deber que lo ha convertido en una leyenda. El capitán se ha retirado de la vida náutica y se ve obligado a vender su barco y a alquilar su propiedad para que pueda vivir en paz durante los últimos años de su vida—y dejarle una modesta herencia a su hija. Pero su plan corre peligro de fracasar en un instante trágico que le obliga a traicionar o los fuertes valores morales por los cuales se ha hecho famoso o el ser humano que es objeto de su profundo amor.

His parents and sister are terrified, not only of the oversized creature but also of their own fates, because Gregor had been paying off his father’s debt and providing money for them to live off of. They are forced to find jobs, and as they adjust to their new life and transformed cohabitant, their treatment of Gregor varies, from attempting to feed him to running away from him to ignoring him entirely. Written in 1912, The Metamorphosis has remained one of the great works of modern literature due to its unique premise and biting insights into family life. En la novela más célebre de Franz Kafka sobre la alienación que se puede sentir en la vida diaria, el joven viajante de comercio Gregor Samsa despierta una mañana convertido en un repulsivo insecto. Sus padres y su hermana están aterrorizados, no sólo por la criatura de gran tamaño pero también por sus propios desti- nos, porque Gregor había estado pagando las deudas de su padre y proporcionando dinero para que pudieran vivir. Se ven sin más remedio que encontrar trabajo, y mientras se adaptan a una vida nueva y su transformado conviviente, su tratamiento de Gregor varía, desde tratar de darle de comer hasta huir de él y no hacerle ningún caso. Escrito en 1912, La transformación ha sido uno de los grandes trabajos de la literatura moderna debido a su premisa única y sus mordaces peripecias de la vida familiar.

Each story is driven by the inertia and entropy of its oddball subjects and their insistence on viewing the world in the way they choose. Some are poor wretches, such as Colonels Jack and Jim, who cannot tell the difference between a car and a bus, while oth- ers are on the verge of a nervous breakdown, such as Mrs. McWilliams, who in the middle of a storm proposes numerous out- landish ways to stay protected against lightning. Together these sto- ries are an important part of Mark Twain’s body of work, painting a vivid picture of small-town life at the turn of the century. En estos audaces retratos de la vida americana, Mark Twain anima un reparto de personajes chiflados con descripciones orig- inales y su energía usual. Cada cuento está conducido por la inercia y entropía de sus sujetos excéntricos y la insistencia de éstos en ver el mundo a su manera. Algunos son pobres diablos, como los coroneles Jack y Jim, que no alcanzan a ver la diferen- cia entre un coche y un ómnibus, mientras otros están al borde del ataque de nervios, como la señora McWilliams, que en el medio de una tormenta propone varias maneras extravagantes de protegerse del relámpago. En conjunto, estas historias son una parte importante de la obra de Mark Twain, pintando un cuadro vívido de la vida de pueblo al final del siglo XIX.

When young Berkeley, the firstborn son of the Count of Rossmore, dis- covers that his family stole their title, estate, and fortune genera- tions ago, he travels to America in order to find the rightful Earl of Rossmore, an eccentric man named Mulberry Sellers. Before Berkeley meets Sellers, however, there is a fire at the former’s hotel that destroys his documents, forcing him to adopt a new identity and try earning his own living for the first time in his life. Una de las novelas cómicas menos conocidas de Mark Twain, esta historia absurda emplea el genio narrativo y de Twain su don de la parodia además de dar voz a sus fervientes protestas sociales. Cuando el joven Berkeley, primogénito del conde de Rossmore, descubre que hace algunas generaciones su familia se robó su título, su propiedad y sus riquezas, viaja a los Estados Unidos para encontrar el legítimo heredero, un hombre estrafalario llamado Mulberry Sellers.

Conveying a tortuous inner journey captured in a narrative in which nature is cruel and indifferent to human suffering, this collection shifts between cannibals, headhunters, and pearl and slave traders on the islands. Few authors have portrayed these seas with more passion and conviction. Estas historias de gran alcance, que claramente evocan el Pacífico colonial a finales del siglo con su paisaje tropical, derivan su intensidad de las aventuras lejanas del autor mismo. Transmitiendo un camino interior tortuoso captado en una narración en la que la naturaleza es cruel e indiferente al sufrimiento humano, esta colección presenta a caníbales, cazadores de cabezas, comerciantes de perlas y traficantes de esclavos en las islas.

Ballester When Mrs. Rachel Bruner walks into Nero Wolfe’s office and hands him a check for $100,000, the private investigator known for his large build and larger personality is intrigued. It seems that Mrs. Bruner has made an enemy out of the FBI by buying 10,000 copies of a tell-all book and sending them to influential people in the government. Now she thinks that the bureau is wire-tapping her phone and tailing her, and she wants Wolfe to make it stop. Wolfe agrees, despite his sharp assistant Archie Goodwin’s objec- tions, and soon finds himself in confrontation with the all-power- ful FBI director, J. Edgar Hoover. A riveting detective novel, this Rex Stout classic is also a passionate outcry against the witch hunt led by Hoover and the bureau during the McCarthy era. Cuando la Sra. Rachel Bruner entra en la oficina de Nero Wolfe y le entrega un cheque por $100.000, el investigador privado cono- cido por su gran complexión y su personalidad aún más grande está intrigado. Parece que la Sra. Bruner se ha ganado la enemis- tad del FBI por haber comprado 10.000 ejemplares de un libro con detalles secretos sobre la agencia y habérselos enviado a per- sonas influyentes en el gobierno. Ahora piensa que este grupo le ha intervenido su teléfono y que la sigue, y quiere que Wolfe le ponga fin al asunto. Wolfe asiente, a pesar de las objeciones de su ayudante astuto Archie Goodwin, y pronto se encuentra en una confrontación con el todopoderoso director del FBI, J. Edgar Hoover.

The second story, “The Misadventures of John Nicholson” is more autobiographi- cal, chronicling the life of a well-intentioned Scottish man who falls into mishap after mishap, disappointing his ethical father.

El segundo cuento, “Las desventuras de John Nicholson,” es más autobiográfico y narra la vida de un hombre escosés con buenas intenciones que cae en una desgracia tras otra, decepcio- nando a su padre ético.

It focuses on the Lester family, former cotton farmers who continue to live on their ancestors’ plantation even though it has long ceased to be prosperous. Jeeter and Ada Lester have 17 children, two of whom still live at home: Ellie May, their only unmarried daughter who has a cleft lip, and Dude, their youngest son who is mentally handicapped. The fam- ily’s antics, while at times vile and perverse, depict the racism and moral ambiguity that existed among some impoverished Southerners at that time. Realista sin ser sentimental, esta novela clásica es una reflexión de los efectos de la pobreza en los aparceros en el sur durante la Gran Depresión. Se enfoca en la familia Lester, antiguos agricul- tores de algodón que siguen viviendo en la plantación de sus antepasados, a pesar de que ésta desde hace tiempo dejó de ser próspera. Jeeter y Ada Lester tienen 17 hijos, dos de los cuales todavía viven en casa: Ellie May, su única hija soltera que tiene un labio leporino, y Dude, su hijo menor que tiene deficiencia mental. Las travesuras de la familia, aunque a veces viles y per- versas, muestran el racismo y la ambigüedad moral que existía entre algunos sureños empobrecidos en ese momento.

Zadig, a short philosophical novel, involves a good-hearted young man who is fated to deal with an endless series of romantic and social obstacles, overcoming one only to be faced with the next. From the importance of faith in reason to the mysteries of fate, the philosophical questions Voltaire poses in these two stories reveal his genius. Dos de las obras en prosa más célebres de Voltaire se reúnen en esta colección que ilustra su ingenio famoso y explora su filosofía a través de la ficción. “Micromegas,” considerado el origen de ciertos ideales de la ficción científica, introduce el gigante Micromegas, un explorador joven de otro planeta que viene a la Tierra y se sorprende cuando no puede ver ninguna vida inteligente. Zadig, una corta novela filosófica, tiene que ver con un joven de buen corazón que está destinado a atender a una serie infinita de obstáculos románticos y sociales, superando uno e inmediatamente enfrentándose a otro. Desde la importancia de la fe en la razón hasta los misterios de la suerte, las preguntas filosó- ficas que plantea Voltaire en estos dos cuentos revelan su genio.

This fascinating chronicle of the trial gathers heretofore inaccessible transcripts and portrays Wilde with all of his eloquence, wit, and theatricality. En 1895, John Douglas, el marqués de Queensbury y padre de Alfred Douglas—el enamorado de Oscar Wilde—envió al club Albermarle una nota dirigida al dramaturgo en el cual se refirió a él como un “sodomita.” Indispuesto a ignorar la ofensa, y con el aliento de su joven galán, Wilde demandó por calumnia al mar- qués e inició un escandaloso juicio que acabaría sentenciando al primero a dos años de trabajos forzados.

At first, the comments the blogger receives on her post are witty and intelligent and of great help to her as she sets about writing her novel. As time goes on, though, a fundamental problem emerges: each commenter begins to write about his own issues and prob- lems, and the forum soon devolves into a series of obstinate and ill-tempered monologues.

Some are so smitten with teenage beauties it drives them to impotence; others are still being controlled by their mothers; still others are incapable of understanding or even noticing their wives’ infidelities. While the situations the charac- ters find themselves in are occasionally tragic or difficult, there is also an undercurrent of humor and tenderness to the stories sure to bring a smile to the face of any reader. Los hombres que pueblan esta colección de cuentos no son aque- llos machos alfa celebrados en el cine y la literatura; son hombres que intentan—y en algunos casos fallan—adaptarse al mundo que los rodea. Algunos están tan enamorados de adolescentes bellas que se quedan impotentes; hay aquellos que siguen siendo manejados por sus madres; y todavía otros son incapaces de entender e incluso ver las infidelidades de sus mujeres.

This chilling story is a lucid and insightful portrait of power and those who hold it, of money and its buying and selling mechanisms, and of the rapid descent of a city—Berlin—and a country between wars.

This includes men such as the veteran jailer Ferraras, who, through absences and dalliances on the margins of society, seeks to assert his independence, or Ferraras’ superior Sandoval, who has ambitious—if cynical and corrupt—plans for the prison; men who, however much they think of themselves as above or apart from the prison environment, are in fact them- selves as captive to it as the men they are tasked with guarding. Ultimately, this is a portrait of the craving for power, of the inanity of the cultural institutions that this yearning engenders, and of the individuals who, however willingly or unwillingly, are consumed by it. Un comentario perspicaz y ocasionalmente cáustico de la cultura institucionalizada y el aislamiento social, esta novela se centra en el mundo de las prisiones y específicamente aquellos encargados con operar y mantenerlo. Esto incluye hombres como el carcelero veterano Ferraras, quien mediante ausencias y con- vivencias en el margen social busca demostrar su libertad, y su superior, Sandoval, quien tiene planes ambiciosos—por no decir cínicos y corruptos—para la prisión; hombres que, por más que se piensen por encima o aparte del entorno de la prisión, son tan prisioneros como los hombres que custodian. Éste es, al final, un relato mordaz del ansia de poder, de la inanidad de las institu- ciones culturales que crecen a su sombra y de aquellos individuos que, por más que quieran o no quieran, son consumidos por el.

MARCH Ahora, escribo Now I Write Lolita Bosch In this very personal examination of modern families and the mental and emotional blocks that can develop as a result of the loss of a loved one—especially a parent—Lolita Bosch demon- strates a refreshing frankness in discussing her own family life and infirmities, while also tackling themes such as the difficulty of writing, sickness, death, life, and need. Equal parts an essay about the fear of creation, a fragmented autobiography, and a declaration of intention for the future, this chronicle is also a tes- tament to the power of literature as a healing force. En este examen muy personal sobre las familias contemporáneas y los bloqueos mentales y emocionales originados por la muerte de seres queridos—en particular los padres—Lolita Bosch demuestra una franqueza reconfortante mientras afronta la vida de su familia y sus propias enfermedades físicas, al mismo tiem- po que trata temas como la dificultad de escribir, la enfermedad, la muerte, la vida y la necesidad. Tanto un ensayo narrativo sobre el miedo a la creación como una autobiografía fragmenta- da y una declaración de intenciones para el futuro, esta crónica es también un testimonio del poder de la literatura como una fuerza curativa. Lolita Bosch is an award-winning Spanish author of books for adults and children whose work has been translated into English, German, Galician, Valencian, Basque, and Polish. She is the author of Esto ves es un rostro, La familia de mi padre, La per- sona que fuimos, and Tres historias europeas.

More than simply a scrapbook of the life of one particular European Jewish family, however, this is the story of the diaspora of millions of Jews dur- ing the 20th century and an examination of the political, cultur- al, and militaristic upheavals that caused it. Basándose en las memorias de Raúl—conocido en la Argentina de los años 50 como el luchador “Hombre Montaña”—y en sus archivos familiares, esta fascinante historiografía relata su viaje desde su Rumania natal hasta Argentina, pasando por Palestina, Israel y Francia de la posguerra, y presenta a un reparto de familiares y amigos. Más que un simple álbum de recortes de la vida de una familia judía europea particular, sin embargo, es la historia de la diáspora de millones de judíos durante el siglo XX y un examen de los trastornos políticos, culturales y militares que fueron su causa.

There are few the author doesn’t take to task; he rails against the market and academic institutions for concerning them- selves only with profit and against authors of supposedly “high” literature who have abandoned experimentation in search of a greater audience. What Tabarovsky proposes instead is a type of literature that refuses to kowtow to standard conventions of lan- guage, plot, and genre—literature that is written with no particular reader in mind, that is ignorant of critique or other literature, that pushes the boundaries of aesthetics, syntax, and raison d’être. Damián Tabarovsky presenta una invectiva contra la actual cul- tura literaria argentina en esta crítica ácida y beligerante. Hay pocos que el autor no reprocha; ataca al mercado y a la acade- mia por ocuparse únicamente de las ganancias y a los autores de literatura “culta” por abandonar la experimentación en busca de un público más amplio. Lo que propone Tabarovsky es un tipo de literatura que se rehúse doblegarse ante las convenciones de lenguaje, argumento o género—literatura que se escribe sin tomar en cuenta algún público, la crítica u otra literatura, que amplia los límites de la estética, de la sintaxis y del propósito. Damián Tabarovsky is a writer and a columnist for the Argentinean daily Perfil and the magazine Quimera. He is the author of seven novels, including Autobiografía médica and La expectativa.

The immense range of Eastern beliefs is separated into two types of philosophies, the first of which applies to daily life and the second of which describes a way of living in relation to the after- life. Philosophies rooted in our time—success, obligation, and pleasure—deal with the way people should behave toward nature and others. Una de las primeras grandes empresas que introdujeron la filosofía del oriente al mundo occidental, esta colección de la obra de Heinrich Zimmer—recopilada póstumamente por su protegido Joseph Campbell—explora los símbolos y mitos de la sabiduría india. La inmensa gama de creencias orientales se separa en dos tipos de filosofías, el primero que se aplica a la vida diaria y el segundo que describe una manera de vivir en relación con la vida eterna. Filosofías arraigadas en nuestro tiempo—el éxito, el deber y el placer—tratan del comportamiento que se debe tener hacia la naturaleza y los demás. Heinrich Zimmer was a scholar of Indian philosophy and South Asian art. He taught at the University of Heidelberg in Germany until he was expelled by the Nazi regime in 1938, at which point he became a professor at Balliol College at Oxford. He later went on to teach at Columbia University in New York City. His other famous work is Myths and Symbols in Indian Art and Civilization. Joseph Campbell was a philosopher, a religious his- torian, and a friend of Heinrich Zimmer who took on the task of editing and publishing Zimmer’s papers.

The hidden tomb of Brodsky in Venice, the elusiveness of the indefinable Portuguese word saudade, and the idea of language being a break between infancy and childhood are some of the subjects that Valeria Luiselli explores. Shining a different light on aspects of daily life, this group of commentary also demonstrates the prowess of a promising young Mexican writer. Evocativos e imaginativos, estos ensayos narrativos cobran una gama de temas pero tienen en común la perspectiva única de la autora que le permite al lector encontrar nuevas conexiones entre los tópicos diversos. La tumba escondida de Brodsky en Venecia, el carácter esquivo de la indefinible palabra portuguesa saudade y la idea de que el lenguaje es una ruptura entre la infancia y la niñez son algunos de los temas explorados por Valeria Luiselli.

At age 67 he decides to write the history of his life to dispel the attacks made by his worst enemy, who has just published a book that reveals the most embarrassing incidents in Barney’s past: shady business deals that lead to success, three failed marriages, and the disappearance of Barney’s best friend Boggie, a possible murder in which Barney remains the prime suspect. With a dry humor and a tendency to make fun of every aspect of Barney’s history, this novel journeys through the story of his delightfully dissipated life in his own words. Barney Panofsky es un hombre aparentemente corriente que tiene una vida extraordinaria: fuma demasiados puros, bebe más whisky de lo que debiera y está obsesionado con el hockey y con una de sus ex esposas. A sus 67 años decide escribir la historia de su vida para desmentir los ataques que su peor enemigo acaba de publicar en un libro que descubre los asuntos más compromete- dores del pasado de Barney: turbios acuerdos empresariales que le llevaron al éxito, tres matrimonios fracasados y la misteriosa desaparición de Boggie, el mejor amigo de Barney, un posible asesinato del que sigue siendo el principal sospechoso. Con un humor ácido que le permite burlarse de todos los aspectos de la historia de Barney, esta novela viaje por el relato de su deliciosa vida disipada en sus propias palabras.

So begins this wildly twisting psychological novel that brings every aspect of reality into question. The man becomes a passenger on a path of delirium, unable to determine what is real and what is not, even doubting the existence of his brother, his ex-wife, and his pets.

As the night and the effects of the alcohol wear on, however, the conversation devolves into a series of confidences revealed by the older man. A striking work of noir fiction, this novel contains a series of lively and literary mysteries where topics such as voyeurism and cross- dressing, rather than being merely provocative elements, are essen- tial components of a plot that is as fascinating as it is unsettling. Una noche del 1988, el anciano magnate anglo-peruano Clayton Archimbaud recibe en su hogar en San Francisco a Mirko Lauer, un periodista y crítico literario, bajo los auspicios de recrear la biografía de su prima, la escritora Miranda Archimbaud. A medi- da que avanzan la noche y los efectos del alcohol, sin embargo, la conversación deriva hacia las confidencias por parte del anciano. Una muestra destacada de la ficción negra, esta novela está llena de misterios literarios y vitales en los que el voyeuris- mo y el travestismo son, más que elementos provocativos, piezas esenciales en una trama tan fascinante como perturbadora.

Gandolfo With a heady mix of sensuality and terror, the two stories in this volume come by their chills not through outlandish turns of events or twists of plot, but rather by exploiting the inherent mysteriousness of everyday places and events. The first tale, “Rete Carótida,” is named for one of its protagonists who, in the words of the author, is a “kind of dignified monster.” The second story, “Escamas, piel,” relates the story of Irene, a woman who exercises a powerful attraction over her lovers, and in whose mysterious comings and goings there is a certain terrifying, though seductive, secret. Con una mezcla embriagadora de sensualidad y terror, las dos his- torias en este volumen resultan escalofriantes, no a base de efectos sorprendentes o giros de eventos inverosímiles, pero más bien a través de explotar el misterio inherente de los momentos y espa- cios cotidianos. El primer cuento, “Rete Carótida,” lleva por títu- lo el nombre de una de sus protagonistas que, según el autor, es “una especie de monstruo digno.” La segunda historia, “Escamas, piel,” relata el cuento de Irene, una mujer que ejerce una atracción poderosa sobre sus amantes, y en cuyas apariciones y desapari- ciones hay un secreto que asusta tanto como atrae.

When the local drug kingpin discovers him, Lobo becomes the kingdom’s artist-in-residence. Through his songs, he captures life both within the court and out- side of it, and though initially his compositions serve to glorify and popularize the cartel, they eventually play an integral part in its demise. With lyrical and popular language, this is a vivid por- trayal of a world of slums, bars, brothels, drugs, guns, and death. Lobo, el protagonista de esta novela fascinante sobre la vida en la frontera de México con los Estados Unidos, no posee edu- cación pero le sobra talento para convertir los sucesos notables en baladas épicas. Cuando el cabecilla de una banda local de narcóticos topa con él, Lobo se convierte en el juglar del reino. A través de sus canciones, describe la vida tanto dentro de la corte como fuera de ella, y aunque al principio sus composiciones sir- ven para glorificar y popularizar el cartel, juegan a la larga un papel integral en su desaparición.

After their desertion, survival becomes their primary focus, and in order to eat, keep warm, see in the dark, and—most impor- tantly—remain undiscovered, they have to deal both with their own side and that of the English. A captivating novel of the experience of war and of life itself, this book represents a high- water mark in late 20th-century Latin American literature.

Todo gira entonces en torno a la sobrevivencia, y para poder comer, mantenerse calientes, ver en la oscuridad y—lo más importante de todo—no ser descubiertos, tienen que traficar tanto con su propio bando como con el de los ingleses. Esta novela cautivadora sobre la experiencia de la guerra y de la vida misma representa la cumbre de la literatura latinoamericana a finales del siglo XX.

DECEMBER Excerpt: ¿Qué tiene de malo una guardería? Es algo que necesitan los padres..., pero no es lo que necesita un bebé. ¿Y qué necesita un bebé? La cercanía cálida, constante y segura de sus amorosos padres. Pero si los padres no pueden . . . Dejan a sus bebés cada vez más tempranamente en guarderías, sin calibrar las consecuencias . . . ¿A qué edad entran los bebés en guarderías? ¡Con cuatro meses! Algo impensable hace cuarenta años . . . ¿Y qué consecuencias tiene esto? Mala crianza. Asumimos como normal que nuestros bebés enfermen, ¡y no lo es! ¿Enferman por culpa de la guardería? Multiplica las posibilidades de enfermar: el bebé está más expuesto a gérmenes . . . y, sobre todo, más propenso a toda afección. ¿La guardería acentúa la propensión a enfermar del bebé? Sí. El propio hogar, los brazos de mamá y papá, un círculo reducido de personas . . . ¡eso es lo que fortalece emocional, cognitiva y físicamente al bebé! La guardería, en cambio, puede comprometer su desarrollo.

Jankélévitch explains morals as the horizon that defines human action, arguing that the essential question of Who am I? will always be followed by the question What should I do? Morality is understood as second nature, whether it contributes to an improvement on traditional social conventions or a rejection of them. This approach and others are developed by Jankélévitch in this philosophy course, taught in 1962 and transcribed by one of his students. De una de las voces más prominentes del siglo XX viene una exploración del significado, el valor y la aplicación de la morali- dad en la sociedad. Jankélévitch explica la moral como el hori- zonte que define la acción de los humanos, argumentando que la pregunta esencial de ¿Quién soy? siempre será seguida por la pregunta ¿Qué debo hacer? La moralidad es comprendida como una segunda naturaleza, ya sea que contribuya a una mejora de las convenciones tradicionales de la sociedad o a un rechazo de ellas. Este planteamiento y otros son desarrollados por Jakélévitch en este curso de filosofía, impartido en 1962 y tran- scrito por uno de sus estudiantes. Vladimir Jankélévitch was a French philosopher who was the chair of moral philosophy at the Sorbonne. He wrote more than 20 books on philosophy and music in his native French.

Against the backdrop of the Allied bombing campaign, Massaquoi increasingly found himself on the wrong side of surging German nationalism and facing a lonely struggle for survival in a homeland that viewed him as undesirable. Con una enfermera alemana como madre y el hijo del cónsul liberiano como padre, Hans Massaquoi pasó los primeros años de su vida viviendo en la mansión de su familia influyente y reci- biendo la misma educación que cualquier otro niño alemán— hasta que los nazis asumieron el poder.

James Hillman attests that in a world where violence is omnipresent and multiform, war is both natural and inhuman; it is an innate characteristic of being just as death, love, beauty, and terror are, but in creating it men seem to be carrying out the divine wishes. In addition to his analysis, Hillman provides a possible alternative to acting upon the desire for violence: chan- neling it into an aesthetic passion. Not only does this passionate polemic seek to reduce ignorance about the nature of war, but it also gives a fresh perspective on the terrible activity that humanity is so immersed in. Intelectualmente estimulante y elocuente, esta explanación de porqué existe la guerra y porqué la humanidad la ama ofrece algunas ideas inquietantes. James Hillman atestigua que en un mundo en el que la violencia es omnipresente y multiforme, la guerra es a la vez natural e inhumana; es una característica innata del ser como la muerte, el amor, la belleza y el terror, pero al hacerla los hombres parecen que están llevando a cabo los deseos divinos. Además de su análisis, Hillman provee una alternativa posible al actuar sobre el deseo de la violencia: canalizarla hacia una pasión estética. Esta invectiva apasionada no sólo busca reducir la ignorancia sobre la naturaleza de la guerra pero también da una novedosa perspectiva sobre la actividad terrible en la que la humanidad está tan inmersa. James Hillman is a psychologist who developed archetypal psychology. He is the author of Re-visioning Psychology and The Soul’s Code: On Character and Calling. He lives in Thompson, Connecticut.

His memoirs, unpublished for nearly 50 years after his death, contain dizzying accounts of bat- tlefield rescues conducted as shells whistled past and machine guns rattled as well as melancholy, elegiac recollections of hours spent on alert, waiting for battle. These memories are a movingly honest account of man’s experience of war. Cuando tenía 32 años, el poeta americano James Neugass pasó algunos meses en España durante la guerra civil al volante de una ambulancia de la Brigada Abraham Lincoln. Sus memorias, inéditas por casi 50 años después de su muerte, combinan ver- tiginosos relatos sobre el rescate de heridos mientras silbaban los obuses y tableteaban las ametralladoras con recreaciones melancólicas y elegíacas de las horas en alerta, esperando el combate.

SEPTEMBER Hermes conductor de almas A translation of Hermes: Guide of Souls (9780882142241) Focusing on Hermes, traditionally known as the messenger of the gods, this study of Greek mythology and religion offers new inter- pretations of his character. The first section of the book is dedi- cated to examining Hermes’s role in classic Greek works—the Iliad, the Odyssey, and ancient hymns—beyond that of the mes- senger god to that of a guide, helping to uncover new pathways and hidden meanings. The second half of the book deals with Hermes’s relationship with life and death, viewing the former as something that stems from the darkness of the latter. Written in Karl Kerényi’s known analytical style, this volume sheds light on some of the mysteries of the ancient world. Enfocándose sobre Hermes, conocido tradicionalmente como el mensajero de los dioses, este estudio de la mitología y la religión griega ofrece nuevas interpretaciones de su carácter. La primera parte del libro se dedica a examinar el papel de Hermes en las obras griegas clásicas—la Iliada, la Odisea y los Himnos—más allá del dios mensajero al papel de un guía que permite des- cubrir nuevos caminos y símbolos no percibidos. La segunda mitad del libro trata sobre la relación entre Hermes y la vida y la muerte, mirando a la primera como algo que surge de la oscuridad de la última. Escrito en el estilo analítico conocido de Karl Kerényi, este volumen arroja luz sobre algunos de los mis- terios del mundo antiguo.

Among the Greeks, the worship conducted at Eleusis was the archetype of the mystery, but Karl Kerényi’s research goes further, to look back at those who came before the Greeks and their practices. One such group, the Cabiri, had been given a secret by Demeter, according to myth. While the secret is kept, Kerényi examines one truth that is revealed through this act: the origin of life is in essence feminine. Metódico y erudito, este recurso comprensivo de la mitología griega clarifica una de las ideas fundamentales de la religión en el mundo griego: el misterio del conocimiento de lo innombrable que se adquiere sólo a través de la iniciación en el culto a los dioses. Entre los griegos, el culto llevado a cabo en Eleusis era el arquetipo del misterio, pero la investigación de Karl Kerényi va más allá, al mirar a los que procedieron a los griegos y sus prácti- cas. Uno de estos grupos, los Cabiros, había sido dado un secreto por Deméter, según el mito. Mientras el secreto es guardado, Kerényi examina una verdad que se revela a través de este acto: el origen de la vida es en esencia femenina.

IPG – FALL 2011 New Titles 83 Krishnamurti esencial Essential Krishnamurti Krishnamurti The fundamental principle at the heart of all of Jiddu Krishna- murti’s teachings, and the one he expounded in his lectures and writings, was that each person should find for him- or herself the path to her own liberty. In the lectures gathered here, the spiritual teacher delves deeper still into this message, proposing a way of living completely different from the norm. Krishnamurti invites readers to observe with clarity and discernment—without the con- ditioning factors of the mind or of language—the motives behind their actions, desires, and relationships. He argues that only in doing so, is it possible to understand that liberty, love, beauty, and goodness are the same thing. El principio fundamental de las enseñanzas de Jiddu Krishna- murti, y el que expuso en sus charlas y escrituras, era que cada persona debería encontrar por sí misma la raíz de su propia libertad. En los discursos aquí reunidos, el maestro espiritual profundiza en este mensaje y propone una manera de vivir completamente distinta a la que se acostumbra. Krishnamurti invita a los lectores a observar con claridad y discernimiento— sin los condicionamientos de la mente y del lenguaje—los motivos detrás de sus acciones, anhelos y relaciones. Sostiene que sólo cuando se hace esto, es posible comprender que la libertad, el amor, la belleza y la bondad son una sola cosa. Krishnamurti was a spiritual public speaker and writer whose teachings have been collected in more than 70 books.

In an engaging, accessible style, he discusses various subjects that arouse great interest and contro- versy: the use of the burkha, religious education, the building of mosques, terrorism in the name of Islam, genital mutilation, and more. Ramadan’s simple yet powerful message is that Western culture and Islam need not be mutually exclusive concepts and, indeed, can form the basis of a shared and confident pluralism. En esta discusión esclarecedora, Tariq Ramadan, uno de los más destacados pensadores islámicos en el occidente y un pararrayos ocasional para la controversia, sintetiza su visión sobre el Islam occidental en un momento en que constata una gran confusión de temas de identidad, religión y cultura. Con un estilo ameno y didáctico, aborda asuntos que suscitan más polémica e interés: el uso del velo, la educación religiosa, la creación de mezquitas, el terrorismo en nombre del Islam, la mutilación genital y más. El mensaje de Ramadan es simple pero profundo: la cultura occi- dental y el Islam no tienen por qué ser conceptos mutuamente excluyentes y, más bien, pueden formar la fundación de un plu- ralismo compartido y confidente. Tariq Ramadan is a Swiss-born academic, a philosopher, a the- ologian, and a professor of contemporary Islamic studies at Oxford University. He is the author of In the Footsteps of the Prophet, The Quest for Meaning, and Radical Reform: Islamic Ethics and Liberation.

Thurman Prologue by Dalai Lama Written in the eighth century, The Tibetan Book of the Dead is the most important of many mortuary texts of the Nyingma sect of Tibetan Buddhism and is commonly recited by or to a person facing imminent death. This expert translation presents the Buddhist tradition in terms that even the most inexpert of read- ers can understand. What emerges in the pages is Buddhism’s profound message that death, far from being an end point, is actually a primary step on the path to liberation. Escrito en el siglo VIII, El libro tibetano de los muertos es el más importante de varios textos mortuorios de la secta Nyingma del budismo tibetano, y normalmente es recitado por o se le recita a una persona a punto de morir. La traducción experta presenta esta tradición budista en términos que hasta el más inexperto de los lectores podrá entender. Lo que resalta en estas páginas es el mensaje profundo del budismo que la muerte, lejos de ser un punto final, es un paso primario en la senda hacia la liberación. Padma Sambhava was an eighth-century sage guru who is said to have introduced Vajrayana, or Tantric, Buddhism to Bhutan, Tibet, and surrounding countries. Robert A. Thurman is the Jey Tsong Khapa Professor of Indo-Tibetan Buddhist Studies in the department of religion at Columbia University and the author of The Jewel Tree of Tibet and Why the Dalai Lama Matters.

It responds to often overlooked but no less important questions about politics, such as What can religion offer politics? and What can citizens do that goes beyond mere legisla- tion or affiliation with a particular party? The contributions of 34 prominent Buddhists engaged in politics—including the Dalai Lama, Thich Nhat Hanh, and David Loy—are organized by cate- gories that describe Buddhism’s noble eightfold path and illustrate how each person can contribute to improving the world. Sin caer en el reduccionismo binario de “bien y mal” ni intentar vender políticas partidistas, ésta es una recopilación del punto de vista de grandes pensadores sobre cómo se puede hacer del mundo un lugar mejor. Trata aquellas cuestiones menos debati- das pero más importantes sobre la política, como ¿Qué puede aportar la religión a la política? y ¿Cómo pueden los ciudadanos hacer algo que vaya más allá de la mera legislación y la afiliación a un partido? Las contribuciones de 34 prominentes budistas involucrados en la política—incluyendo el Dalai Lama, Thich Nhat Hanh y David Loy—están organizados por categorías que describen el noble sendero óctuple del budismo e ilustran cómo cada persona puede contribuir a un mundo mejor.

The author defines this as a quality of open-eyed awareness and honest per- ception that can turn challenges into opportunity and lessons into growth. In exploring questions such as Is enlightenment less about fireworks and more about dismantling illusions? and How can spiritual practice be fully integrated into daily life?, this man- ual offers practitioners of any tradition a guide to a more fulfill- ing spiritual experience. Un manual para una vida espiritual genuina, este libro explica que la senda espiritual—como cualquier otro viaje—está llena de desvíos y obstáculos que se pueden evitar a través del discern- imiento.

Using every- day language and drawing on both personal experience and age- old wisdom, Foster argues that all seeking and longing of the mind can come to an absolute end by rejecting the notion of being a separate individual and immersing oneself into uncondi- tional love—an immersion that will reveal the great secret in even the most ordinary of lives. En esta exploración espiritual, Jeff Foster sostiene que el concep- to de la iluminación es un mito y que la liberación—lejos de ser una meta dentro del alcance únicamente de los maestros o gurús espirituales—se puede hallar por cualquiera, aquí y ahora. Con un lenguaje simple y ameno, y recurriendo tanto a las experien- cias personales como a la sabiduría milenaria, Foster propone que toda esa larga e intensa búsqueda espiritual puede acabarse definitivamente al rechazar la noción de ser un ser individual y al sumergirse en el amor incondicional—una sumersión que reve- lará el gran secreto aún de las vidas más cotidianas. Jeff Foster is a graduate in astrophysics from Cambridge University and the author of several books on the concept of nondualism, including Beyond Awakening, Life Without a Centre, and The Revelation of Oneness.

The book explains how the images on the Major Arcana—the first 22 cards in a tarot deck—can be viewed through the prism of Jungian archetypes, the psychic dispositions that Carl Jung believed com- prised the collective subconscious. Through analogy with the humanities, mythology, and the graphic arts, Sally Nichols demonstrates how the cards can be read as a map that describes the path toward self-realization and provides various techniques for using the cards to glean practical information along the way. Este estudio innovador presenta una detallada y penetrante inter- pretación del tarot mágico en términos de la psicología de Jung.

(9781577311683) Alan Watts In this overview, Eastern philosophies scholar Alan Watts offers an entertaining and brilliant synthesis of Taoism as it is por- trayed in the teachings of some of its most classic works— including the The Art of War, the I-Ching, Tao te Ching, and Zhuangzi. Through a lively explanation of the essential ideas and concepts of Taoist thought, Watts presents Tao as a person- al practice of liberation and explains the role that corresponds to every person as an individual endowed with free will in a world whose norms change constantly. This exploration demon- strates the reach that this ancient Eastern wisdom can have on hectic modern lives. En esta perspectiva general, Alan Watts, erudito en filosofías ori- entales, ofrece una síntesis amena y brillante del taoísmo, tal y como aparece en las enseñanzas de sus grandes clásicos: el Arte de la Guerra, el I-Ching, el Tao te king y el Zhuang Zi. A través de una exposición viva de las ideas y los conceptos esenciales del pensamiento taoísta, Watts presenta al Tao como una práctica personal de liberación y explica el papel que le corresponde a cada persona como un individuo dotado de libre albedrío en un mundo cuyas pautas cambian continuamente. Esta exploración muestra el alcance que esta antigua sabiduría oriental puede tener en la ajetreada vida actual.

Grecco A unique treatise on the nature and consequences of bipolar dis- order, this book argues that if the emotional oscillations experi- enced by individuals with the disorder have come to be considered a disadvantage or a dysfunction, it is because medi- cine and psychology have treated them as such. The study— which examines the characteristics of bipolarity and its corresponding manic and depressive episodes in depth—holds that, rather than a brain disorder that can only be managed by chemical means, the condition is the result of undeveloped tal- ents and can be cured by affirming and channeling those skills into appropriate outlets. Un tratado único sobre la naturaleza y las consecuencias del trastorno bipolar, este libro arguye que si las oscilaciones emo- cionales experimentadas por individuos con el trastorno han lle- gado a considerarse una desventaja o disfunción, es porque la medicina y la psicología las han considerado como tales. El estu- dio—el cual examina a fondo las características de la bipolari- dad, la manía y la depresión—sostiene que, en vez de ser un desorden del cerebro que solamente se puede estabilizar por medios químicos, la condición es un resultado de talentos sin desarrollar y se puede curar por afirmar esos dones y canalizar- los en direcciones más apropiadas.

MARCH Un millón de piedras A Million Stones Miquel Silvestre A fed-up man, a motorcycle, and a beautiful, stunning continent: these are the ingredients that make up Miquel Silvestre’s 9,000- mile journey through deserts, jungles, and savannah, from Nairobi to Cape Town and Maseru to Maputo. The author visited 10 countries during a trip that featured its fair share of blood, broken bones, and beer—a lot of beer. This isn’t a travel diary filled with descriptions of the snows on Kilimanjaro or sunsets on the Serengeti. What it does feature are the voices and stories of locals who tell of a simple beauty in one of the barest places on earth. Without any sentimentality, Silvestre still presents a moving por- trait of an oft misunderstood continent. Un hombre harto, una motocicleta y un continente bello y pas- mado: estos son los ingredientes que comprenden el viaje de 15.000 kilómetros de Miquel Silvestre por desiertos, junglas y sabanas, desde Nairobi a Ciudad del Cabo y Maseru hasta Maputo. El autor visitó 10 países a lo largo de un viaje que incluyó una buena cantidad de sangre, huesos rotos y cerveza— mucha cerveza. Éste no es un diario lleno de descripciones de las nieves de Kilimanjaro o puestas del sol en el Serengeti. Lo que sí hay son las voces e historias de nativos que cuentan de una belleza sencilla en una de las zonas más desencarnadas del plane- ta. Sin sentimentalismo, Silvestre presenta un retrato conmove- dor de un continente todavía malentendido. Miquel Silvestre is the author of numerous books, including La dama ciega, Dinamo Estrellada, Mariposas en el cuarto oscuro, and Spanya SA. He is also the editor of the magazine Colegio de Registradores and a lawyer who regularly contributes articles to Cinco Días, El Diario de La Ley, El Economista, Expansión, La Gaceta de los Negocios, and El País.

The stories and the fears they represent are color-coded, thus allowing for targeted discussion and education. Children are encouraged to assign their fears to a different colored “bag,” which helps them put their worries into context and understand, ultimately, that while everyone experiences fear, quite often there is no reason to be afraid.

Las historias y los miedos que representan llevan colores distintos, permitiendo de esa manera una discusión y educación más concentrada. A los niños se les anima a asignar sus miedos a una bolsa de color par- ticular, lo cual les ayuda poner sus preocupaciones en contexto y entender, últimamente, que aunque todo el mundo siente miedo, a menudo no hay por qué estar atemorizado.

They don’t know each other, but they both love buying coats. One day, after each has purchased a brand new coat, disas- ter strikes for both of them: a button falls off of each of their coats! Enriqueta travels the city looking for her button, to no avail. Gabriel can’t find his either. They each find a different but- ton, however, and sew it onto their respective jackets. One day, they’re both at a restaurant, and from across the room they notice that they have each other’s buttons—and so their love story begins. Whimsically illustrated, this charming tale folds out to tell the stories of Enriqueta and Gabriel in two separate books. Enriqueta es muy coqueta, y Gabriel siempre anda de pincel. No se conocen, pero a ambos les encanta comprar abrigos. Un día, después de que cada uno se haya comprado un abrigo nuevo, ocurre un desastre: ¡un botón se cae de cada uno de sus abrigos! Enriqueta camina por la ciudad buscando su botón, pero no sirve de nada. Gabriel tampoco puede encontrar el suyo. Cada uno sí logra conseguir un botón distinto al del abrigo y se lo cose a su abrigo. Un día, ambos están en un restaurante, y desde el otro lado del cuarto se dan cuenta de que cada uno tiene el botón del otro, y así empieza su historia de amor. Ilustrado fan- tásticamente, este cuento encantador se despliega para contar las historias de Enriqueta y Gabriel en dos libros separados.

Fortunately, though, the family’s faithful ser- vant Toinette is on hand, and although she isn’t a doctor, she has a solution for every problem. Argan está enfermo y encamado, y pasa los días quejándose, pendiente de los remedios que le prescriben unos médicos más deseos de ganar dinero a expensas de la enfermedad que de cor- tar de raíz sus causas.

Esta colección reúne algunas de las obras de Miguel de Cervantes— uno de los principales exponentes del estilo—e incluye notas de léxico e interpretación dirigidas a lectores no expertos que ayu- dan a contribuir a su placer del material.
