Nominada por los estadounidenses como una de las 100 mejores novelas en la serie de PBS The Great American Read. En una ciudad del sur de los Estados Unidos, en la época de la Gran Depresión, una mujer blanca acusa de violación a un hombre negro. Aunque la inocencia del hombre resulta evidente, el resultado del juicio es tan previsible que ningún abogado haría nada para evitarla... excepto Atticus Finch, el ciudadano más respetable de la ciudad. Su compasiva defensa le cuesta muchas amistades, pero le otorga el respeto y la admiración de sus dos hijos, huérfanos de madre. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize-winning masterwork of honor and injustice in the deep South--and the heroism of one man in the face of blind and violent hatred "Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit 'em, but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird." A lawyer's advice to his children as he defends the real mockingbird of Harper Lee's classic novel--a black man charged with the rape of a white girl. Through the young eyes of Scout and Jem Finch, Harper Lee explores with rich humor and unswerving honesty the irrationality of adult attitudes toward race and class in the Deep South of the 1930s. The conscience of a town steeped in prejudice, violence, and hypocrisy is pricked by the stamina and quiet heroism of one man's struggle for justice--but the weight of history will only tolerate so much. One of the best-loved classics of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird has earned many dis-tinctions since its original publication in 1960. It has won the Pulitzer Prize, been translated into more than forty languages, sold more than forty million copies worldwide, and been made into an enormously popular movie. It was also named the best novel of the twentieth century by librarians across the country (Library Journal).

A historic literary event: the publication of a newly discovered novel, the earliest known work from Harper Lee, the beloved, bestselling author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning classic, To Kill a Mockingbird. Originally written in the mid-1950s, Go Set a Watchman was the novel Harper Lee first submitted to her publishers before To Kill a Mockingbird. Assumed to have been lost, the manuscript was discovered in late 2014. Go Set a Watchman features many of the characters from To Kill a Mockingbird some twenty years later. Returning home to Maycomb to visit her father, Jean Louise Finch—Scout—struggles with issues both personal and political, involving Atticus, society, and the small Alabama town that shaped her. Exploring how the characters from To Kill a Mockingbird are adjusting to the turbulent events transforming mid-1950s America, Go Set a Watchman casts a fascinating new light on Harper Lee’s enduring classic. Moving, funny and compelling, it stands as a magnificent novel in its own right.

A Kidnapped Santa Claus was published two years after Baum's The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus (1902), and shares its mythological cosmos: in the story as in the novel, Santa lives in the Laughing Valley on the border of the Forest of Burzee, and is assisted by knooks, ryls, fairies, and pixies. In modern editions the two works, novel and story, are sometimes published together. Though the short story has strong similarities with the novel, it has been interpreted as presenting a less rosy view of the world, in that it shows elements of evil as fundamental to existence and ineradicable.

Xanthe and her mother Flora leave London behind for a fresh start, taking over an antique shop in the historic town of Marlborough. Xanthe has always had an affinity with some of the antiques she finds. When she touches them, she can sense something of the past they come from and the stories they hold. When she has an intense connection to a beautiful silver chatelaine she has to know more. It is while she’s examining the chatelaine that she’s transported back to the seventeenth century where it has its origins. She discovers there is an injustice in its history. The spirit that inhabits her new home confronts her and charges her with saving her daughter’s life, threatening to take Flora’s if she fails. While Xanthe fights to save the girl amid the turbulent days of 1605, she meets architect Samuel Appleby. He may be the person who can help her succeed. He may also be the reason she can’t bring herself to leave.

“The day I died was the day when I nearly lost the little humanity that was left inside me. The eternal promise of leaving as a peaceful spirit was never fulfilled; instead, I became a wandering soul, rooted to the entrails of this wasteland. You might think that smiling in the face of death should be something glorious, but there’s nothing glorious about this. There’s only a deep and sinister emptiness inside. Destiny made me walk among demons I didn’t need to be scared of. It allowed me to stare at the sun without looking away from dawn to dusk. It placed the burden of this world on my back and also forced me to remember the meaning of love…and of giving human beings a second chance. Was there ever a reason for so many broken laws? Who knows…Let me tell you about a fascinating journey and faraway lands, about unswerving loyalty and unimaginable creatures. My name is Erico Lombardo and I am doomed to be aware of myself. Maybe, after my death, I still had one last thing to do…” “Diary of a Zombie” transports us to a desolate world, a planet wiped out by a massive pandemic where human beings have almost become extinct. But what makes this story different from the rest is the fact that it is told from a very unusual point of view: that of a zombie who, for unknown reasons, keeps his human consciousness and free will after being transformed. This is a unique case. After a few chapters in which the character is introduced, we will witness a story of redemption, full of human values, that is centered around a peculiar friendship. Erico’s cold, cynical and unsociable behavior will gradually change as he meets a lonely and mysterious 8-year-old girl on whom humankind’s scarce chances of survival depend. During the whole of his epic adventure, Erico will be linked to his most human side again, as he recovers memories and feelings he had not experienced since the times when warm blood still coursed through his veins. “Diary of a Zombie”, mostly set in a post-apocalyptic Barcelona, presents a pleasant story which will bring the reader both tears and laughter. It is a breath of fresh air that reinvents a genre which apparently had nothing new to offer.

Love can be a trouble word for some people. Crazy is also a trouble word. I should know. You've never met anyone exactly like twelve-year-old Sarah Nelson. While most of her friends obsess over Harry Potter, she spends her time writing letters to Atticus Finch. She collects trouble words in her diary. Her best friend is a plant. And she's never known her mother, who left when Sarah was two. Since then, Sarah and her dad have moved from one small Texas town to another, and not one has felt like home. Everything changes when Sarah launches an investigation into her family's Big Secret. She makes unexpected new friends and has her first real crush, and instead of a "typical boring Sarah Nelson summer," this one might just turn out to be extraordinary.

"In his play, Christopher Sergel has shifted the focus slightly. The result of this shift, I believe, hightlights the novel's universal qualities. [He] reminds us...that the issues explored are not those of a 'regional' work of art (as the novel is often categorised) but are of importance in Nottingham, Manchester, Birmingham or wherever the play is seen by an audience." - from Ray Speakman's introduction.

Ramon Jose Sender Graces was born on 3rd February 1901. He was a prolific writer, who published a vast quantity of novels, stories, plays, essays, poetry and articles throughout his life. He wrote Requiem por un campesino espanol during one week in 1952, with the intention that it be part of a collection of short stories. That book never materialised, but Sender's novella was published by Aquelarre in Mexico in 1953 under the title Mosen Millan . The title was changed in 1960 by New York publisher Las Americas to something that could be meaningfully translated into English. The political message conveyed within the book meant that it was not published in Spain until 1974. Requiem for a Spanish Peasant relates the thoughts and memories of Mosen Millan, the parish priest, as he sits in the vestry of the church in a nameless Aragonese village, preparing to conduct a Reqiuem Mass to celebrate the life of a young peasant, Paco el del Molino, killed by the Nationalist army a year earlier, at the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War. As he waits, his thoughts are interrupted by the occasional comings and goings of an altar boy, who hums to himself an anonymous ballad. This ballad, along with Millan's thoughts and the voice of an omniscient narrator, creates three strands of narration for the reader to follow.
