Season of ash : a novel in three acts by Jorge Volpi Escalante( Book )
38 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 675 libraries worldwide
Jorge Volpi's international bestseller Season of Ash puts a human face on the earth-shaking events of the late twentieth century: the Chernobyl disaster, the fall of the Berlin Wall, the end of Soviet communism and the rise of the Russian oligarchs, the cascading collapse of developing economies, and the near-miraculous scientific advances of the Human Genome Project. Told through the intertwined lives of three women--Inna, a Soviet biologist; Eva, a Hungarian computer scientist; and Jennifer, an American economist--this novel-of-ideas is part detective novel, part scientific investigation, and part journalistic expose, with a dark, destructive love story at its center

"Cuando se encuentran en Nueva York en 1925, Henry Murray es un ambicioso médico de Harvard, casado con una rica heredera de Boston, y Christiana Morgan una tormentosa estudiante de arte, esposa de un veterano de guerra. Atraídos por una fuerza que los sobrepasa, los dos viajan a Suiza para ser analizados por Carl Gustav Jung, quien sumerge a Christiana en profundos estados de trance. Las visiones de la joven, fielmente dibujadas en sus cuadernos, se convertirán en el punto de partida de un experimento en busca del amor absoluto que se prolongará durante los siguientes cuarenta y dos años. La tejedora de sombras es el retrato de Christiana Morgan, una mujer que se empeñó en confrontar el universo masculino de su época, y el inquietante recuento de una obsesión llevada hasta su límite." --P. [4] of cover

Denise Dresser y Jorge Volpi presentan una nueva versión del libro de texto de historia para llevar al lector a revisar, de forma lúdica y crítica, los hechos que han dado forma a este país. La suya es una propuesta llena de humor, sarcasmo e ironía, que deja las formas establecidas en "la historia oficial" para hacer un recorrido ameno desde el México precolombino hasta el del siglo XXI. En ésta obra contrastan los datos conocidos por todos desde los primeros años de la educación básica, con la realidad que los mexicanos vivimos cada día, misma que, desde lo político, está llena de intrigas, golpes bajos, corrupción, fraude y traiciones, al más puro estilo de la mafia siciliana. Cada página refuta, cuestiona e invita a la reflexión siempre utilizando como detonante el sentido del humor. Con este libro será posible aprender, divertirse, cuestionar y reflexionar en torno a lo que los mexicanos esperamos para 2006, con los escenarios posibles que ofrecen partidos y candidatos

Días de ira : tres narraciones en tierra de nadie by Jorge Volpi Escalante( Book )
5 editions published in 2011 in Spanish and held by 101 libraries worldwide
Con la precisión y la sensualidad del cuento, pero también con el aliento épico de una novela, las tres historias que forman este volumen se sitúan en esa tierra de nadie imprecisa, sorprendente e incluso difícil de limitar que Jorge Volpi ha bautizado como la media distancia, un género único, con sus propias leyes, tradiciones, oficiantes y enemigos. A pesar del oscuro silencio, El juego del apocalipsis y el relato que da título a este libro, Días de ira, se encuentran sin lugar a dudas entre lo mejor de la producción de su autor, demostrando, con esta personal y fascinante manera de escribir narrativa breve, que se puede tener al mismo tiempo la paciencia del novelista y la agilidad del escritor de cuentos, para terminar firmando poemas sinfónicos en un solo movimiento, en los que resistencia y velocidad van unidos de la mano
