Demasiada felicidad : relatos by Alice Munro( Book )
1 edition published in 2014 in Spanish and held by 54 libraries worldwide
Ten new short stories from the author tackle a variety of themes, such as love, loss, and redemption. In the first story a young wife and mother receives release from the unbearable pain of losing her three children from a most surprising source. In another, a young woman, in the aftermath of an unusual and humiliating seduction, reacts in a clever if less-than-admirable fashion. Other stories uncover the "deep-holes" in a marriage, the unsuspected cruelty of children, and how a boy's disfigured face provides both the good things in his life and the bad. And in the long title story, we accompany Sophia Kovalevsky, a late-nineteenth-century Russian é́migré and mathematician, on a winter journey that takes her from the Riviera, where she visits her lover, to Paris, Germany, and, Denmark, where she has a fateful meeting with a local doctor, and finally to Sweden, where she teaches at the only university in Europe willing to employ a female mathematician. Here the author renders complex, difficult events and emotions into stories that shed light on the unpredictable ways in which men and women accommodate and often transcend what happens in their lives
The progress of love by Alice Munro( Book )
10 editions published between 1991 and 2014 in Spanish and held by 47 libraries worldwide
Se podría concebir El progreso del amor como unas crónicas de nuestro tiempo que, con gran sensibilidad y empatía, nos descubren los aspectos más intrínsecos de la vida cotidiana; toda una revelación de nosotros mismos -los lectores-, nuestras elecciones y nuestras experiencias. En su conjunto, son un tratado del amor, formado por historias íntimas y deslumbrantes que exploran sus distintas facetas--filial, platónico, sexual, parental e imaginario--en las vidas de personajes aparentemente ordinarios. Munro nos habla sobre cómo puede engañarnos la memoria y cómo nuestra percepción puede llegar a distorsionar la realidad. De esta forma empieza a entretejer los once relatos sobre el amor, la memoria y la vida que constituyen este volumen

The loss of El Dorado : a history by V. S Naipaul( Book )
5 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in Spanish and held by 24 libraries worldwide
The history of Trinidad begins with a delusion: the belief that somewhere nearby on the South American mainland lay El Dorado, the mythical kingdom of gold. In this extraordinary and often gripping book, V.S. Naipaulhimself a native of Trinidadshows how that delusion drew a small island into the vortex of world events, making it the object of Spanish and English colonial designs and a mecca for treasure-seekers, slave-traders, and revolutionaries. Amid massacres and poisonings, plunder and multinational intrigue, two themes emerge: the grinding down of the Aborigines during the long rivalries of the El Dorado quest and, two hundred years later, the man-made horror of slavery. An accumulation of casual, awful detail takes us as close as we can get to day-to-day life in the slave colony, where, in spite of various titles of nobility, only an opportunistic, near-lawless community exists, always fearful of slave suicide or poison, of African sorcery and revolt. Naipaul tells this labyrinthine story with assurance, withering irony, and lively sympathy. The result is historical writing at its highest level. Focuses on the two widely separated historical situations--ill-fated attempts to exploit the island nation of Trinidad by the Spanish in the sixteenth century and the British in the eighteenth century--that called worldwide attention to the obscure island of Trinidad

Aprende los principios de la intención y cómo conectar esa fuerza con la fuente de la creatividad que todos poseemos. Durante años, el doctor Dyer ha investigado la intención como una fuerza en el universo que nos permite llevar a cabo el acto de crear; por eso, a través de ella, podemos lograr que nuestra existencia llegue a ser todo lo plena y feliz que deseamos. Es decir, la intención no como algo interno a nosotros que nos impulsa a hacer, sino como una energía de la que, sin saberlo, participamos. Todos formamos parte del poder invisible de la intención; conociéndolo y usándolo de forma adecuada nos convertimos en dueños de las transformaciones que queramos imprimir a nuestras vidas. A través de historias reales y aleccionadores ejemplos aprenderemos los principios de la intención y cómo conectar esta fuerza universal con la fuente de creatividad que ya poseemos

Since childhood, Ryan Donally adored Rachel Bailey, though the brilliant, beautiful lass saw him as just another rowdy boy. The years pulled them apart, carrying Rachel to a place of responsibility and respect few women of her time enjoyed ... while Ryan ascended to undreamed-of heights of wealth and success, and bound his heart to another. Now fate has brought them together once again -- and Rachel sees not the boy she once spurned, but a breathtaking man she desires. Yet Ryan has moved on and is unwilling to forgive, and Rachel hides a secret shame that could destroy everything she has worked for. Then, in one moment of unrestrained passion, the walls between them tumble, and the price they must pay is a marriage neither can afford. But will a sensuous fire too-long resisted bring tragedy ... or will it forge a glorious and undying love?

Una zona de oscuridad : el descubrimiento de la India by V. S Naipaul( Book )
2 editions published in 2015 in Spanish and held by 15 libraries worldwide
"Una zona de oscuridad es un clásico fundamental de la literatura de viajes, probablemente el libro más elegante y apasionado que se haya escrito sobre la India. Una zona de oscuridad es el primer libro del premio Nobel V.S. Naipaul sobre la tierra de sus antepasados, fruto de su primer viaje al subcontinente indio en 1964. Desde el caos de Bombay a la belleza inmarcesible de Cachemira, de una sagrada cueva helada en el Himalaya a un templo abandonado en Madrás, Naipaul descubre una asombrosa variedad de tipos humanos, modestos funcionarios públicos y criados arrogantes; un sinuoso santón y un fascinado estadounidense en busca de la fe. Naipaul también expone su reacción personal y distinta al paralizante sistema de castas, a la aparentemente serena aceptación de la pobreza y la miseria, y el conflicto entre el deseo de autodeterminación y la nostalgia por la dominación británica."

Al límite de la fe : entre los pueblos conversos del islam by V. S Naipaul( Book )

India : una civilización herida by V. S Naipaul( Book )
11 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in Spanish and held by 13 libraries worldwide
"Trazada sin prejuicios ni sentimentalismo, la visión lúcida, tierna y sarcástica de la India que ofrece V.S. Naipaul no es el relato tópico o exótico al que el lector está acostumbrado, sino una representación viva de una sociedad compleja en la que la modernidad se teje sobre un fondo tradicional, un espacio lleno de aristas y puntos de vista diversos y contradictorios. El enfrentamiento entre musulmanes e hindúes, la transformaciones del papel de la mujer, la supervivencia de los antiguos rituales, la dinámica industria cinematográfica, la nueva literatura, los cambios en la institución familiar y la permanencia del sistema de castas, son aspectos que no escapan la aguda mirada de último premio de Nobel de literatura. Un testimonio de primer orden."--Cubierta trasera
