La niña alemana: novela

La niña alemana: novela
Correa, Armando Lucas, 1959-

Before everything changed, young Hannah Rosenthal lived a charmed life. But now, in 1939, the streets of Berlin are draped with red, white, and black flags; her family's fine possessions are hauled away; and they are no longer welcome in the places that once felt like home. Hannah and her best friend, Leo Martin, make a pact: whatever the future has in store for them, they'll meet it together. Hope appears in the form of the SS St. Louis , a transatlantic liner offering Jews safe passage out of Germany. After a frantic search to obtain visas, the Rosenthals and the Martins depart on the luxurious ship bound for Havana. Life on board the St. Louis is like a surreal holiday for the refugees, with masquerade balls, exquisite meals, and polite, respectful service. But soon ominous rumors from Cuba undermine the passengers' fragile sense of safety. From one day to the next, impossible choices are offered, unthinkable sacrifices are made, and the ship that once was their salvation seems likely to become their doom. Seven decades later in New York City, on her twelfth birthday, Anna Rosen receives a strange package from an unknown relative in Cuba, her great-aunt Hannah. Its contents will inspire Anna and her mother to travel to Havana to learn the truth about their family's mysterious and tragic past, a quest that will help Anna understand her place and her purpose in the world. The German Girl sweeps from Berlin at the brink of the Second World War to Cuba on the cusp of revolution, to New York in the wake of September 11, before reaching its deeply moving conclusion in the tumult of present-day Havana.

La paz de los sepulcros

La paz de los sepulcros
Volpi Escalante, Jorge, 1968-

"La aparición del cuerpo sin vida de Alberto Navarro, ministro del Interior mexicano y posible candidato a la presidencia del país, junto al cadáver de un hombre desconocido en la habitación de un hotel de las afueras de la capital mexicana, conmueve a una sociedad desafortunadamente acostumbrada a la corrupción y el despotismo de sus gobernantes, los abusos del ejército y la violencia sanguinaria de sus cárteles de droga y delincuentes. Pero para Agustín Oropeza, periodista de la prensa amarilla, el doble asesinato va más allá de una exclusiva para la Tribuna del escándalo, cuando reconoce la identidad del cadáver del hombre que perdió la vida junto al asesinado ministro. Pero para Agustín Oropeza, periodista de la prensa amarilla, el doble asesinato va más allá de una exclusiva para la Tribuna del escándalo, cuando reconoce la identidad del cadáver del hombre que perdió la vida junto al asesinado ministro. Con el estilo reflexivo y magistral que caracteriza a Jorge Volpi, y sin omitir la aplastante realidad de México, el autor nos adentra a través de Oropeza en el submundo de la prostitución infantil, funcionarios corruptos y una vida nocturna colmada de drogas y de una actividad sexual frenética que convive con una sociedad que coexiste con el miedo, el asombro y el apetito por lo morboso. Son tiempos de desolación en que cabe preguntarse qué sucede en las altas esferas y qué esconde la realidad política.""--Amazon.com.

La templanza

La templanza
Dueñas, María, 1964-

"The New York Times bestselling author of The Time in Between returns with a magnificent new novel set in 1860s Mexico City, Havana, and Spain about a self-made man who loses his fortune overnight but finds his destiny as he works to restore a legendary vineyard to its former glory, and to win the love of the combative widow who once owned the property. Now available in Spanish. Mauro Larrea sees the fortune that he had built after years of hardship and toil come crashing down on the heels of a calamitous event. Swamped by debts and uncertainty, he gambles the last of his last money in a daring move that offers him the opportunity to resuscitate his fortune. But when the unsettling Soledad Montalvo, wife of a London wine merchant, comes into his life, her passionate intensity lures him toward an unanticipated future. La Templanza spans diverse worlds, from the young Mexican republic to magnificent colonial Havana; from the West Indies to the Jerez of the second half of the nineteenth-century, when its wine trade with England turned the Andalusian city into a legendary cosmopolitan enclave. A novel replete with glories and defeats, with silver mines, family intrigues, vineyards, and splendid places whose grandeur has faded in time, La Templanza is a story of resilience in the face of adversity, of a lifeline forever altered by the force of passion"--Provided by publisher.

Los an̋os con Laura Díaz

Los an̋os con Laura Díaz
Fuentes, Carlos

A radiant and epic new novel that is among the finest achievements of Mexico's greatest man of letters. The Years With Laura Diaz is Carlos Fuentes' most important novel in several decades. Like his masterpiece The Death of Artemio Cruz, the action begins in the state of Veracruz and moves to Mexico City--tracing a migration during the Revolution and its aftermath that was a feature of Mexico's demographic history and that is a significant element in Fuentes's fictional world. Now the principle figure is not Artemio Cruz (who, however, makes a brief appearance) but Fuentes's first major female protagonist, the extraordinary Laura Diaz. Carlos Fuentes's richly woven narrative tapestry-filled with a multitude of dramatic scenes both witty, amusing, and heartbreaking-shows us this wonderful creature as she grows into a politically committed artist who is also a wife and mother, a lover of great men, a complicated and alluring heroine whose brave honesty prevails despite her losing a son and grandson to the darkest forces of Mexico's repressive, corrupt regimes. In the end, Laura Diaz herself dies, after a life filled with tragedy and loss, but she is a happy woman, for she has borne witness to, and helped to affect, the course of history and has vindicated the aims and intentions of the highest art.
