Llámame Brooklyn by Eduardo Lago( Book )
37 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in 8 languages and held by 565 libraries worldwide
Through an ingenious structure that jumps from narrator to narrator and spans decades, Call Me Brooklyn follows the life of Gal Ackerman, a Spanish orphan adopted during the Spanish Civil War and raised in Brooklyn, NY. Moving from the secret tunnels that shelter the forgotten residents of Manhattan to the studio where Mark Rothko put an end to his life, from the jazz clubs frequented by Thomas Pynchon to the bar in Madrid where we learn the truth about Ackerman's past, Call Me Brooklyn draws upon a rich tradition that includes Nabokov's Pale Fire, Bellow's Humbolt's Gift, and the novels of Felipe Alfau--a hymn to mystery and to the power of fiction
Drown by Junot Díaz( Book )
6 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in Spanish and held by 385 libraries worldwide
AEl lector tiene en sus manos una coleccion de relatos que viene precedida de una enorme expectacion. Su autor, seleccionado por NewsweekNegocios gravitan sin sosiego por territorios marginales, a mitad de camino entre la inocencia y la experiencia, entre la curiosidad infantil y la crueldad mas descarnada. Criados en hogares abandonados por el padre, donde todo se sostiene gracias a la ferrea abegacion de la madre, estos adolescentes acarician suenos de independencia, asomandose con recelo a un mundo donde intuyen que no hay un lugar reservado para ellos. En estos diez relatos la prosa de Junot Diaz oscila con sabiduria entre el humor, la desolacion y la ternura, desplegando en cada pagina un estilo palpitante de vida
Ladrón de mapas by Eduardo Lago( Book )
14 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 93 libraries worldwide
"Un escritor lanza al anonimato de la red unos cuentos en los que propone un singular pacto de lectura. La joven Sophie acepta el reto y los relatos, enviados por correo electrónico, se despliegan ante sus ojos como mapas misteriosos, iniciándose así un viaje que le permitirá llegar al corazón de las tinieblas de donde surgen las historias que dan forma a nuestras vidas. De la mano de cineastas como Visconti y Orson Welles o escritores como Conrad, Kipling y Joyce, algunos de los cuales aparecen como narradores o personajes de los relatos que integran Ladrón de Mapas, Eduardo Lago propone a sus lectores un vertiginoso itinerario en el que vida y literatura se mezclan sin cesar. África, la India, o Rusia; París, Trieste o Nueva York son algunas de las escalas de un libro cuya cartografía es un compendio ejemplar del arte de contar historias, desde los modos característicos de la fabulación oral hasta las webstories que aparecen colgadas en el espacio virtual, pasando por las crónicas negras que recogen a diario los periódicos"--Page 4 of cover
Siempre supe que volvería a verte, Aurora Lee by Eduardo Lago( Book )
6 editions published in 2013 in Spanish and held by 47 libraries worldwide
Divertidísima, absorbente y absolutamente original, la nueva novela del autor de Llámame Brooklyn. Un escritor del New Yorker fascinado con la novela inacabada de Nabokov, cuyo borrador se publicó con el título El original de Laura, se obsesiona con la idea de averiguar hasta dónde podría haber llegado el escritor ruso de haber conseguido acabar la obra. Para ello, contrata a un escritor fantasma al que encarga un informe, informe que será el centro de una investigación que no por "literaria" deja de ser tan trepidante y peligrosa como la mejor novela negra. Novela de aventuras y sátirica, novela negra y velazqueña, novela metaliteraria y novela indagadora, la nueva obra de Eduardo Lago es una vuelta de tuerca a las preguntas contemporáneas acerca de la narratividad y de la ficción

La carrera de E. L. Doctorow se extiende a través de casi una docena de novelas excepcionales, pero es en sus cuentos donde la pulsión por doblegar la forma narrativa tradicional se convierte en un juego. También es en ellos donde encuentra e inventa personajes excepcionales en su complejidad y, con pinceladas asombrosamente descriptivas, nos sitúa en la realidad americana, con su desesperada ingenuidad y su optimismo recalcitrante. Este volumen recoge (por primera vez en cualquier lengua) todos y cada uno de esos cuentos
