The book of memories by Ana María Shua( Book )

15 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 449 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Book of Memories, originally published in Spanish in 1994, is a humorous yet moving exploration of a Jewish family's history, as seen through the eyes of three generations of women. The story begins with Grandfather Gedalia leaving Poland with forged papers to escape the army and sailing to Argentina, the "other America." Sometimes charming, sometimes stingy, this patriarchal figure, a peddler and sometime moneylender, heads a clan that includes, among others, the feisty and foul-mouthed Aunt Judith, and Uncle Silvester, a seducer of young girls who has such high principles that he turns himself in after missing the Argentine police raid on his socialist printing press

No accompanying materials, which is unfortunate since Shua's work is not yet well known in English"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58
The weight of temptation by Ana María Shua( Book )

15 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dystopian fantasy, political parable, morality tale-however one reads it, this novel is first and foremost pure Ana María Shua, a work of fiction like no other and a dark pleasure to read. Shua, an Argentinian writer widely celebrated throughout Latin America, frames her complex drama in deceptively simple, straightforward prose. The story takes place at a fat farm called The Reeds, a nightmare world that might not exist but certainly could. The last resort of the overweight wealthy (or sponsored), The Reeds subjects its "campers" to extreme measures-particularly the regimented system of publi
