The temple of Iconoclasts by Juan Rodolfo Wilcock( Book )
22 editions published between 1972 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 263 libraries worldwide
"From an armchair in England, Rosenblum hatches a complicated plot to return the world to the year 1580-reintroducing ruffs, doublets, codpieces, and sundry period diseases. By sheer force of will, Littlefield discovers that he's able to crystallize table salt into the shapes of "chickens and other small animals." Babson founds an international organization with the declared aim of annulling the law of gravity. These are only a few of the dozens of eccentrics, visionaries, and downright crackpots who populate the pages of Juan Rodolfo Wilcock's charming fiction in the form of a biographical dictionary. Temple's brief portraits blend mordant satire and profound imaginative sympathy, taking in the whole dazzling spectrum of human folly-including a handful of colors that only Wilcock's Swiftian eye could possibly have perceived"--

The quiet American by Graham Greene( Book )
36 editions published between 1957 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 94 libraries worldwide
L Americano Impasible narra una historia, a la que formalmente cabría encasillar en el género detectivesco, que tiene como escenario la Indochina de los primeros años de la década de los 50. Como señalaron en su momento los críticos solo en "El poder y la gloria" ha alcanzado Graham Greene los niveles de maestría, originalidad y vigor logrados en esta obra, testimonio imparcial, por otro lado, de las oscuras claves que explican el actual conflicto del Sudeste asiático. Un periodista británico, Thomas Fowler, un agente de los servicios secretos norteamericanos, Alden Pyle, y una muchacha annamita, Foung, constituyen los vértices de una compleja relación triangular en la que cada personaje, representativo de concepciones culturales antagónicas, es guiado por motivaciones que, mal entendidas o incomprensible para los demás, terminan por producir comportamientos no deseados. Interfiriendo esas vidas y condicionándolas de modo decisivo, el clima político y social de Indochina, la lucha del Vietminh por la independencia, el combate en retirada del ejército francés, los primeros movimientos del Gobierno estadounidense para ocupar la posición hegemónica que dejaría vacante la antigua potencia colonial después de Dien Bien Fu, salta en ocasiones al primer plano de la narración: los atentados en las calles de Saigón y Hanoi, la batalla de Fat Diem, el bombardeo de las aldeas norteñas, las emboscadas en los arrozales del delta del Mekong son plasmados en escenas de impresionante patetismo y veracidad
El caos by Juan Rodolfo Wilcock( Book )
12 editions published between 1960 and 2015 in Spanish and Italian and held by 88 libraries worldwide
"Desde el tenue aviso con que Wilcock le advierte en dedicatoria privada a Silvina Ocampo hasta el adverso milagro de su recepción en 1974, cuando se publica la primera vez, El caos es uno de los referentes más importantes y vivos de la narrativa argentina, como El juguete rabioso, La invención de Morel y Ficciones. A eso contribuye su condición de libro de cuentos inestable. Todo en El caos permanece en estado de transformación: los personajes, las tramas, las escenas, las situaciones y, sobre todo, la lengua. Esa vibración previa, esa inminencia, insinúa el escritor que Wilcock será, y abarca ya la obra futura: El estereoscopio de los solitarios, El ingeniero, La sinagoga de los iconoclastas. Tanto si se trata de un magnicidio, de una fiesta depravada, de unos animales voraces y fantásticos que acechan en el parque Lezama o de un recuerdo de juventud, Wilcock sostiene con su estilo una diversidad de mundos y criaturas que perduran sin ambages en la memoria de los lectores."--Casadellibro

Letters to Milena by Franz Kafka( Book )
17 editions published between 1955 and 2010 in Spanish and held by 36 libraries worldwide
In no other work does Franz Kafka reeal himself as in Letters to Milena, which begins as a business correspondence but soon develops into a passionate but doomed epistolary love affair. Kafka's Czech translator, Milena Jesenska was a gifted and charismatic twenty-three-year-old who was uniquely able to recognize Kafka's complex genius and his even more complex character. For the thrity-six-year-old Kafka, she was "a living fire, such as I have never seen." It was to Milena that he revealed his most intimate self and, eventually, entrusted his diaries for safekeeping. "The voice of Kafka in Letters to Milena is more personal, more pure, and more painful than in his fiction: a testimony to human existence and to our eternal wait for the impossible. A marvelous new edition of a classic text." 'Jan Kott

It's a battlefield by Graham Greene( Book )
8 editions published between 1958 and 1985 in Spanish and Catalan and held by 30 libraries worldwide
"It's a Battlefield is both a suspense story and a serious novel, tense and probing. the keynote is set in a quotation from Kinglake at the beginning of the volume: 'In so far as the battlefield presented itself to the bare eyesight of men, it...was made up of nothing except small numberless circlets...each separate gathering...went on fighting it's own little battle in a happy and advantageous ignorance of the general state of the action....' these 'circlets' began with the killing of a policeman at a political rally in Hyde Park. Drover, a bus driver with Communist leanings, had struck the blow when he thought the policeman was going to injure his wife. The Minister would like to grant a reprieve, but thousands of laborers were on the verge of a crippling strike; a reprieve would indicate weakness on the part of the Minister. On the other hand, if Drover were executed and the workers retaliated it would cost the country millions of pounds--and the Minister would probably lose the next election. Then in one way or another Drover's family and dozens of figures on the outside became involved in the drama; in one way or another each life was changed."--
