Against the Inquisition by Marcos Aguinis( Book )

63 editions published between 1991 and 2018 in 7 languages and held by 419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Born in sixteenth-century Argentina, Francisco Maldonado da Silva is nine years old when he sees his father, Don Diego, arrested one harrowing afternoon because of his beliefs. Raised in a family practicing its Jewish faith in secret under the condemning eyes of the Spanish Inquisition, Francisco embarks on a personal quest that will challenge, enlighten, and forever change him. He completes his education in a monastery; he reads the Bible; he dreams of reparation; he dedicates his life to science, developing a humanistic approach and becoming one of the first accredited medical doctors in Latin America; and most of all, he longs to reconnect with his father in Lima, Perú, the City of Kings. So begins Francisco's epic journey to fight for his true faith, to embrace his past, and to draw from his father's indomitable strength in the face of unimaginable persecution. But the arm of the Holy Inquisition is an intractable one. As it reaches for Francisco, he sheds his mask to defend his freedom. Against seemingly insurmountable odds, he will prove that while the body can be broken, the spirit fights back, endures, and survives."--Amazon.com
La cruz invertida; novela by Marcos Aguinis( Book )

73 editions published between 1970 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La acción se desenvuelve en un país indeterminado. El hombre, contradictorio y abismal, abre su anatomía en diversos cortes. Algunos personajes asumen rasgos caricaturescos. Su presencia y pensamiento en distintos planos suelen enhebrarse mediante leit-motiv - epístola, cursiva, puntuación, crueldad. Numerosos capítulos llevan el título de los libros bíblicos en que se inspiran. Como en la Biblia, la totalidad pretende ser absorbida, pero la frustración amputa proyectos. Entre la razón y el delirio sopla el viento de la esperanza
La pasión según Carmela by Marcos Aguinis( Book )

23 editions published between 2008 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is a time for upheaval in Cuba: the time to build a new society. Even from her position of privilege, idealistic divorcée Carmela Vasconcelos sees the waves of uprising and is caught up in the excitement. Persuaded by her brother, Lucas, she flees her wealthy home to join Fidel Castro's rebels. In the mountainous jungle of the Sierra Maestra, Carmela meets Ignacio Deheza, a charismatic Argentinean socialist fighting on behalf of the insurrection. On the training fields of a revolution, they bond in the cause, and in a blind passion that stirs their blood and soul. As Carmela, Ignacio and Lucas navigate increasingly dangerous political waters, their personal fates become inexorably tied with that of their country. But when the rebellion succumbs to corruption and disillusionment, they'll find their dedication to the movement tested. For Carmela and Ignacio, they'll soon discover that it's their commitment to each other, and the choices they must make to survive, that will be the greatest challenge of all

El atroz encanto de ser argentinos by Marcos Aguinis( Book )

20 editions published between 2001 and 2008 in Spanish and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Este libro responde a una contradiccion: ¿como puede ser atroz un encanto? Y es que ser argentino es una empresa cada vez mas dificil. Emociona serlo, pero se sufre por ello. Hemos atravesado momentos duros, y siempre los hemos superado. El nuevo milenio nos encuentra con las esperanzas debilitadas, y nuestra sensacion de incertidumbre ante el futuro esta en su punto mas alto. Para muchos, la emigracion se ha convertido en el unico recurso posible para progresar. Sin embargo, no dejamos de sentir orgullo por haber nacido en esta tierra. La condicion contradictoria del ser argentino es abordada con maestria por Marcos Aguinis en estas paginas. Critico y optimista a la vez, analiza los defectos que arrastramos de generacion en generacion, desnuda a los corruptos, denuncia el facilismo, el doble discurso y la queja esteril, y no se detiene ante los tabues ni las ideologias. Nos cautiva con su inteligencia al describir las razones por las que debemos apostar por la esperanza. La Argentina no esta desahuciada. Puede recuperarse y alcanzar el nivel de vida de paises que hoy se muestran como destinos deseables de nuestra juventud. El camino por recorrer es sinuoso y esta lleno de obstaculos, pero pueden vencerse tomando conciencia de nuestros defectos y potenciando nuestras virtudes. La lectura de este libro brillante y emotivo invita a hacer el esfuerzo, porque Aguinis nos demuestra que vale la pena. Para que nunca dejemos de estar orgullosos de ser argentinos
