In the time of the butterflies by Julia Alvarez( Book )

19 editions published between 1995 and 2007 in Spanish and held by 1,093 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On a deserted mountain road in the Dominican Republic in 1960, three young women from a pious Catholic family were assassinated after visiting their husbands who had been jailed as suspected rebel leaders. The Mirabal sisters, thus martyred, became mythical figures in their country, where they are known as Las Mariposas (the butterflies). Three decades later, Julia Alvarez, daughter of the Dominican Republic and author of the acclaimed How the Garcia Girls Lost Their Accents, brings the Mirabal sisters back to life in this extraordinary novel. Each of the sisters speaks in her own voice, beginning as young girls in the 1940s, their stories vary from hair ribbons to gun-running to prison torture. Their story is framed by their surviving sister who tells her own tale of suffering and dedication to the memory of Las Mariposas. This inspired portrait of four women is a haunting statement about the human cost of political oppression, and is destined to take its place alongside Garcia Marquez's One Hundred Years of Solitude and Allende's The House of the Spirits as one of the great 20th-century Latin American novels

This poignant and powerful narrative tells the dramatic story of Kunta Kinte, snatched from freedom in Africa and brought by ship to America and slavery, and his descendants. Drawing on the oral traditions handed down in his family for generations, the author traces his origins back to the seventeen-year-old Kunta Kinte, who was abducted from his home in Gambia and transported as a slave to colonial America. In this account Haley provides an imaginative rendering of the lives of seven generations of black men and women
El día que Nietzche lloró by Irvin D Yalom( Book )

14 editions published between 1994 and 2016 in Spanish and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Con una potencia narrativa digna del mejor suspense, Irving Yalom nos propone una nueva historia del nacimiento del psicoanálisis, tan maquiavélica y divertida como intensa. Venecia, diciembre de 1882. La joven deslumbrante e impetuosa Lou Salomé concierta una misteriosa cita con Josef Breuer, reputado médico vienés, con el objeto de salvar la vida de un tal Friedrich Nietzsche, un atormentado filósofo alemán, casi desconocido, pero de brillante porvenir, que manifi esta una crisis profunda de tendencias suicidas. El doctor Breuer, influido por las novedosas teorías de su joven discípulo Sigmund Freud, acepta la peligrosa estrategia que Lou le propone -psicoanalizar a Nietzsche sin que éste se dé cuenta- sin saber que por su parte es víctima de una intriga personal tramada por la joven. Yalom utiliza en sus obras referencias de las grandes fi guras de la cultura occidental como Freud, Nietzsche, Shopenhauer ... pero su escritura está al alcance de un público muy amplio. 3. Se trata de una novela sobre cuatro de los grandes dilemas de la existencia humana: la libertad, la muerte, la soledad y la búsqueda del sentido de la vida. (Fuente: Casa del Libro)
