50 palos no es una biografía, porque las biografías huelen a muerto, dice Pau Donés. Así que si hay modo alguno de entender este libro es como una reflexión, una charla amistosa que se alarga hasta la madrugada y en la que Pau da cuenta de sus mejores momentos, pero también de los peores. Del suicidio de una madre, del fracaso amoroso, de una carrera con altibajos que cuando de repente repunta queda interrumpida por un diagnóstico atroz, cáncer de colon. Pero no es este lugar para lamentos ni para la melancolía. Porque este es un libro optimista, como la música de Jarabe de Palo, como la filosofía que rige la vida de Pau. Este es un libro tierno, honesto, divertido y ácido, incluso. Y emotivo. Una respuesta a todas las preguntas que tantos periodistas nunca le hicieron o que si le hicieron no quiso responder y que ahora, ante la perspectiva de una nueva vida, se ha propuesto escribir

A sensational memoir with all the emotional power of The Fault in Our Stars, The Yellow World is the story of cancer and survival that has moved and inspired readers around the world. My heroes don’t wear red capes. They wear red bands. Albert Espinosa never wanted to write a book about cancer—so he didn’t. Instead, he shares his most touching, funny, tragic, and happy memories in the hopes that others, healthy and sick alike, can draw the same strength and vitality from them. At thirteen, Espinosa was diagnosed with cancer, and he spent the next ten years in and out of hospitals, undergoing one daunting procedure after another, starting with the amputation of his left leg. After going on to lose a lung and half of his liver, he was finally declared cancer-free. Only then did he realize that the one thing sadder than dying is not knowing how to live. In this rich and rewarding book, Espinosa takes us into what he calls “the yellow world,” a place where fear loses its meaning; where strangers become, for a moment, your greatest allies; and where the lessons you learn will nourish you for the rest of your life. U.K. praise for The Yellow World “With its uplifting message and simple philosophy, [The Yellow World] has the makings of a spiritual classic.”—The Sunday Times “[An] energetic rush of a book . . . that shines with comedy and grace.”—The Independent “Heartwarming . . . the book everyone’s talking about.”—Mail on Sunday

Roberto Arlt, celebrated in Argentina for his tragicomic, punch-in-the-jaw writing during the 1920s and 1930s, was a forerunner of Latin American “boom” and “postboom” novelists such as Gabriel García Márquez and Isabel Allende. Mad Toy, acclaimed by many as Arlt’s best novel, is set against the chaotic background of Buenos Aires in the early twentieth century. Set in the badlands of adolescence, where acts of theft and betrayal become metaphors for creativity, Mad Toy is equal parts pulp fiction, realism, detective story, expressionist drama, and creative memoir. An immigrant son of a German father and an Italian mother, Arlt as a youth was a school dropout, poor and often hungry. In Mad Toy, he incorporates his personal experience into the lives of his characters. Published in 1926 as El juguete rabioso, the novel follows the adventures of Silvio Astier, a poverty-stricken and frustrated youth who is drawn to gangs and a life of petty crime. As Silvio struggles to bridge the gap between exuberant imagination and the sordid reality around him, he becomes fascinated with weapons, explosives, vandalism, and thievery, despite a desperate desire to rise above his origins. Flavored with a dash of romance, a hint of allegory, and a healthy dose of irony, the novel’s language varies from the cultured idiom of the narrator to the dialects and street slang of the novel’s many colorful characters. Mad Toy has appeared in numerous Spanish editions and has been adapted for the stage and for film. It is the second of Arlt’s novels to be translated into English.

With humor, rage, and confessional detail, Virginie Despentes—in her own words “more King Kong than Kate Moss”—delivers a highly charged account of women’s lives today. She explodes common attitudes about sex and gender, and shows how modern beauty myths are ripe for rebelling against. Using her own experiences of rape, prostitution, and working in the porn industry as a jumping-off point, she creates a new space for all those who can’t or won’t obey the rules.

This award-winning science fiction classic explores a far-future world inhabited by intelligent canines who pass down the tales of their human forefathers. Thousands of years have passed since humankind abandoned the city—first for the countryside, then for the stars, and ultimately for oblivion—leaving their most loyal animal companions alone on Earth. Granted the power of speech centuries earlier by the revered Bruce Webster, the intelligent, pacifist dogs are the last keepers of human history, raising their pups with bedtime stories, passed down through generations, of the lost “websters” who gave them so much but will never return. With the aid of Jenkins, an ageless service robot, the dogs live in a world of harmony and peace. But they now face serious threats from their own and other dimensions, perhaps the most dangerous of all being the reawakened remnants of a warlike race called “Man.” In the Golden Age of Isaac Asimov and Robert A. Heinlein, Clifford D. Simak’s writing blazed as brightly as anyone’s in the science fiction firmament. Winner of the International Fantasy Award, City is a magnificent literary metropolis filled with an astonishing array of interlinked stories and structures—at once dystopian, transcendent, compassionate, and visionary.

Memoirs are an essential part of the history of the Twentieth century, not only because it is written by one of the century's great poets but because Neruda was involved as a writer and a politician with an extraordinary range of people and events. He writes vividly about the friends he knew, from Lorca, Picasso and Ghandi to those events that he experienced, from the Spanish Civil War to his political career in Chile. Neruda was a poet, an Ambassador and Presidential candidate, as well as being the most prolific and popular poet of his time.
