Cuba on the verge : 12 writers on continuity and change in Havana and across the country by Leila Guerriero( Book )

8 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 578 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As the US and Cuba move toward the normalization of diplomatic relations after an epic fifty-six-year standoff, we find ourselves face-to-face with one of the few places in the world that has been off limits to most Americans. Standing on both sides of the divide, twelve of our most celebrated writers investigate this period of momentous transition in Cuba on the Verge. These essays span the spectrum, from Carlos Manuel Álvarez's story of being among the last generation of Cubans to be raised under Fidel Castro to Patricia Engel's look at how Cuba's capital has changed through her years of riding across it with her taxi driver friend; from The New Yorker's Jon Lee Anderson (who traveled with President Obama on the first trip to Cuba by an American president since the twenties) on being a foreigner in Cuba during the Special Period to Francisco Goldman on the Tropicana, then and now, to Leonardo Padura on the religion that is Cuban baseball"--Adapted from dust jacket

A simple story : the last malambo by Leila Guerriero( Book )

14 editions published between 2013 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Everything in him seemed to shout this is what I am made of: there is nothing that I cannot do.' The Malambo is no ordinary dance. A murderous feat of endurance, it inspires fear and awe in the young working-class men who dance it. Whoever is crowned Champion at the annual competition in the remote Argentinian town of Laborde is treated as a demigod for the rest of his life - yet once he wins, he must never perform again. Twenty-eight-year-old Rodolfo, who grew up poor and hungry in a flat with a leaking tin roof, has dreamed of winning at Laborde ever since he was a boy. Journalist Leila Guerriero follows him as he prepares for the 2012 championship, shredding his muscles, his feet and his nerves in the punishing, relentless struggle to achieve perfection - until, at 5.30am on 12 January, the winner is announced...Combining electrifying storytelling and razor-sharp observation, this is a riveting true story of hardship, passion and dedication; of what it means to sacrifice everything to win, while knowing that ultimately it will destroy you. Leila Guerriero(b. 1967) is one of Argentina's foremost journalists and writers, and has published articles in numerous newspapers and periodicals in South America, Spain and Italy, including El Pais,Vanity Fair and Rolling Stone. In 2010, she won the CEMEX+FNPI Award, the most prestigious journalism prize in Latin America. A Simple Story is her first full-length publication in English

¿Por qué, para qué y cómo escribe un periodista; de qué está hecha su vocación y qué es lo que le da sentido en estos tiempos? Zona de obras reúne columnas, conferencias y ensayos que la argentina Leila Guerriero hilvanó en torno a esas preguntas y que, publicados en diversos medios o leídos en encuentros literarios en América Latina y en España, se recogen por primera vez en un libro. El resultado es un mural en el que cada pieza apunta al corazón del oficio, lo ilumina y, al mismo tiempo, lo cuestiona: ¿cómo y cuándo nace la pulsión por escribir; de qué manera se alimenta; por qué vale la pena llevar un texto periodístico a su máximo potencial expresivo? Éste es un libro sobre la escritura de no ficción pero, también, sobre el cine, el cómic, las artes plásticas, la infancia, Madame Bovary, África, los padres y las lecturas, y respira, en cada una de sus páginas, la convicción de que el periodismo no es un género menor sino un género literario en sí mismo. Yo no creo en las crónicas interesadas en el qué pero desentendidas del cómo. No creo en las crónicas cuyo lenguaje no abreve en la poesía, en el cine, en la música, en las novelas... Porque no creo en crónicas que no tengan fe en lo que son: una forma de arte , escribió Guerriero en una de esas piezas. Acorazada en esa fe, desarma -con audacia, con insolencia, con humildad, con elegancia- los mecanismos íntimos de su trabajo y se sumerge en el detrás de escena del peligroso engranaje de la creación. Los textos de este libro se parecen a esos relojes con la carcasa de cristal, de modo que, al tiempo de darte la hora, te muestran el mecanismo que lo hace posible. Es un libro de misterio, una pesquisa detectivesca sobre la necesidad de narrar. En otras palabras: sobre la necesidad de leer (Juan José Millás). El periodismo que practica Leila Guerriero es el de los mejores redactores de The New Yorker, para establecer un nivel de excelencia comparable: implica trabajo riguroso, investigación exhaustiva y un estilo de precisión matemática (Mario Vargas Llosa)
