Dos historias escritas con maestría por uno de los mejores cuentistas de la literatura española actual. Amar significa entregarse al otro en cuerpo y alma, aunque el amor llevado hasta las últimas consecuencias pueda desembocar en grotescas situaciones. En el primer relato, Marcelo ejecutará paso a paso el ritual del amor desde que, en el día del cumpleaños de su amada, decidió regalarle su vesícula biliar. Y en el segundo relato, el protagonista jamás habría sospechado que fuera a conocer al amor de su vida en un tanatorio ante las cenizas de su madre. Del amor y otras vísceras y Confusión macabra fueron publicados por primera vez en la colección de cuentos Los arácnidos.

La extraña historia de una singular princesa que trabaja en plan becaria y se enamora de un joven nada conveniente. Siguiendo la costumbre del Principado en donde reinan sus severos padres, la princesa que protagoniza esta rara historia inicia su estancia en el extranjero entrando a colaborar como ayudante en una tienda de decoración que, al morir la dueña que la regentaba, pasará a dirigir. Educada en la rigidez de las costumbres del Principado, la princesa descubre pronto las alegrías y las penas del vivir de manera independiente, para finalmente entregarse a los avatares del amor cuando se enamora de Augusto, un joven prometedor y un tanto cínico que la colma de felicidad pero que también la hace sufrir con sus devaneos y reservas frente al compromiso. El juego de apegos y contrariedades que las relaciones afectivas ponen en marcha protagonizan este relato que, a su modo y en unas claves de maligna ironía, reescribe el mundo de los cuentos de hadas resituándolos en unos tiempos y en unos paisajes en los que las princesas deben trabajar para ganarse la vida y sus pretendientes no siempre parecen los más convenientes.

Dos relatos magistrales donde cerrar los ojos y negarte a ver lo que te rodea es tan humano como aceptar que las cosas a veces son como la piel en verano. Los fantasmas del pasado son ecos que, de manera inevitable, asoman cuando menos te lo esperas: durante tu rutinario viaje en autobús o cuando ves a tu hija a pleno sol de la tarde estival en un desolador tiovivo en un inhóspito lugar de la costa. Los protagonistas de estos dos relatos, la profesora de instituto que se encuentra ante el hombre que la torturó de joven o el padre separado que, tras cumplir condena, sólo desea pasar treinta minutos de paz con su hija, son asaltados por los ecos del pasado que siempre regresa, ya sea en forma de novela de Julio Verne o de ese maldito camarero que se niega a darte cambio para que tu hija juegue feliz. «El centro de la Tierra» y «Vainilla y chocolate» fueron publicados por primera vez en la colección de cuentos El centro de la Tierra.

Dos cuentos asombrosos e inquietantes que muestran la magnífica habilidad de Paul Pen para crear historias de suspense. En Otel Lorena ha emprendido un largo viaje en coche desde Madrid hasta Asturias para sorprender a su novio en el día de su cumpleaños. De momento nada ha salido bien, y mientras apura las últimas gotas de gasolina del depósito, perdida en mitad de un temporal que amenaza con dejarla atrapada en cualquier cuneta de estas carreteras secundarias y sin cobertura en su móvil, no puede dejar de pensar en esas películas -Psicosis, El resplandor- que tanto les gusta ver juntos en el sofá de casa, tiernamente arropados bajo una manta. Después de muchas reticencias, Lorena se resigna a aceptar la mano que le tiende un decadente letrero luminoso al que se le ha fundido una de sus letras: OTEL, y alquilar una de sus habitaciones hasta que amanezca. En La sangre del muerto, un grupo de adolescentes a quienes su última aventura nocturna se les ha ido de las manos, prestan declaración en comisaría... ¿Quién miente? ¿Alguno dice la verdad?

The Object of the Atlantic is a wide-ranging study of the transition from a concern with sovereignty to a concern with things in Iberian Atlantic literature and art produced between 1868 and 1968. Rachel Price uncovers the surprising ways that concrete aesthetics from Cuba, Brazil, and Spain drew not only on global forms of constructivism but also on a history of empire, slavery, and media technologies from the Atlantic world. Analyzing Jose Marti’s notebooks, Joaquim de Sousandrade’s poetry, Ramiro de Maeztu’s essays on things and on slavery, 1920s Cuban literature on economic restructuring, Ferreira Gullar’s theory of the “non-object,” and neoconcrete art, Price shows that the turn to objects—and from these to new media networks—was rooted in the very philosophies of history that helped form the Atlantic world itself.

The central figure of this novel is a young man whose parents were executed for conspiring to steal atomic secrets for Russia. His name is Daniel Isaacson, and as the story opens, his parents have been dead for many years. He has had a long time to adjust to their deaths. He has not adjusted. Out of the shambles of his childhood, he has constructed a new life—marriage to an adoring girl who gives him a son of his own, and a career in scholarship. It is a life that enrages him. In the silence of the library at Columbia University, where he is supposedly writing a Ph.D. dissertation, Daniel composes something quite different. It is a confession of his most intimate relationships—with his wife, his foster parents, and his kid sister Susan, whose own radicalism so reproaches him. It is a book of memories: riding a bus with his parents to the ill-fated Paul Robeson concert in Peekskill; watching the FBI take his father away; appearing with Susan at rallies protesting their parents’ innocence; visiting his mother and father in the Death House. It is a book of investigation: transcribing Daniel’s interviews with people who knew his parents, or who knew about them; and logging his strange researches and discoveries in the library stacks. It is a book of judgments of everyone involved in the case—lawyers, police, informers, friends, and the Isaacson family itself. It is a book rich in characters, from elderly grand- mothers of immigrant culture, to covert radicals of the McCarthy era, to hippie marchers on the Pen-tagon. It is a book that spans the quarter-century of American life since World War II. It is a book about the nature of Left politics in this country—its sacrificial rites, its peculiar cruelties, its humility, its bitterness. It is a book about some of the beautiful and terrible feelings of childhood. It is about the nature of guilt and innocence, and about the relations of people to nations. It is The Book of Daniel.

THE NOVEL THAT PROVES THERE’S PLENTY OF LIFE— AND HOT SEX—AFTER SIXTY! Just because Anny Applebaum qualifies for a senior discount doesn’t mean she’s ready for retirement. But if she wants to keep her job at the San Francisco Times, she’ll have to find a way to spice up her lifestyle column. Even if it means posting her profile as an eligible single on JDate .com. Sure, Anny’s a little out of practice. She hasn’t been with a man since she found Viagra in her ex-husband’s suit pocket, and he wasn’t taking it for her. But she’s got her friends to help her fumble her way through the strange and intriguing world of online dating. After hearing cautionary tales from the trenches—about “boomer oldies” who drag around pictures of their dead wives and fixed-income misers who wine and dine their dates at chain restaurants—Anny is relieved to meet Marv Rothstein, a charming . . . 75-year-old diamond dealer. Unfortunately, he’s also a Digital Age Don Juan who prowls singles sites for younger women. Not be outdated by this “Serial JDater,” Anny realizes Marv is the perfect subject for her flagging column and chronicles his sexcapades for the reading public. But when the new column becomes an overnight hit, Anny can’t help but feel conflicted—because now she’s having sex with Mr. X . . . and it’s nothing less than extraordinary.
