El 2 de enero de 2000 Carmen Grau se despidió de su trabajo, familia y amigos en Barcelona y emprendió un viaje poco planeado, con lo puesto y la mochila a cuestas. A lo largo de siete meses recorrió Tailandia, Laos, Vietnam, Camboya, Birmania, Hong Kong, Malasia, Sumatra (Indonesia) y Singapur desplazándose en autobús, tren o barco. Se alojó en albergues y hostales, comió en restaurantes baratos o puestos de calle y compartió vivencias con mochileros de muchos otros países. Ante todo, se interesó por las gentes, la cultura e historia, la gastronomía y la belleza natural de los países por los que pisaba. Amanecer en el Sudeste Asiático es el resultado de esta gran aventura, que cambiaría su vida para siempre.

A father; a husband; a lover; a friend; a rabbi. This is the story about the making of a modern rabbi, his coming of age, and how he finds his place in in a confused and confusing world. Michael Kind is raised in the Jewish cauldron of 1920s New York, familiar with the stresses and materialism of metropolitan life. Turning to the ancient set of ethics of his Orthodox grandfather, with a modern twist, he becomes a Reform rabbi. As insecure and sexually needy as any other young male, he serves as a circuit-rider rabbi in the Ozarks, and then as a temple rabbi in the racially ugly South, in a San Francisco suburb, in a Pennsylvania college town, and finally, in a New England community west of Boston. Along the way he falls deeply in love with and marries the daughter of a Congregational minister; she converts to Judaism and they have two complex, interesting children. Noah Gordon’s picture of a brilliant and talented religious counselor—who at times is as bereft and uncertain as any of his congregants—is a deeply moving and very satisfying novel.

On March 3, 1947, in the maternity ward of Beth Israel Hospital in Newark, New Jersey, Archibald Isaac Ferguson, the one and only child of Rose and Stanley Ferguson, is born. From that single beginning, Ferguson's life will take four simultaneous and independent fictional paths. Four Fergusons made of the same genetic material, four boys who are the same boy, will go on to lead four parallel and entirely different lives. Family fortunes diverge. Loves and friendships and intellectual passions contrast. Chapter by chapter, the rotating narratives evolve into an elaborate dance of inner worlds enfolded within the outer forces of history as, one by one, the intimate plot of each Ferguson's story rushes on across the tumultuous and fractured terrain of mid twentieth-century America. A boy grows up-again and again and again.

Vuelo hacia el amanecer

Vuelo hacia el amanecer

Author: Orestes Lorenzo
Publisher: St. Martin's Press
ISBN: 1250109035
Pages: 246

In December 1992 Orestes Lorenzo undertook the most daring journey of his life. More than a year earlier, while a major in the Cuban Air Force, he had escaped from Cuba by flying a MiG to the United States, and for twenty-one frantic months had been trying to get permission for his wife, Vicky, and their two sons to join him. When all his attempts to gain their freedom failed, Orestes decided to go back and rescue his family himself. Meanwhile, Vicky had been undergoing a terrifying ordeal back in Cuba, where the authorities were pressuring her to denounce her husband as a traitor. They informed her that she would never be allowed to leave, and that Raul Castro himself had declared: "If Lorenzo had the guts to leave with one of my MiGs, maybe he has the guts to come back and get his family." Desperate, Orestes Lorenzo did just that, flying an old twin-engine Cessna across the straits of Florida, avoiding Cuban radar, and landing on a busy highway in a breathtaking rescue. Wings of Morning is Lorenzo's account of this astonishing feat, but it is also the unforgettable odyssey of a young man growing up during the euphoria of the Cuban Revolution, marrying his sweetheart, and going off to train as a fighter pilot in the Soviet Union. Lorenzo movingly describes his growing disillusionment with communism, his religious awakening amidst the revelations of Perestroika, and the near-death of his beloved Vicky, as well as his increasing conviction that he must not let his children grow up in a country that denies any dignity or spiritual values in the individual, in the family, and to society.
Del amanecer a la decadencia

La obra cumbre del historiador Jacques Barzun es una magnífica síntesis de nuestra historia moderna: un apasionante recorrido de Occidente desde el Renacimiento y la Reforma hasta nuestros días. El historiador Jacques Barzun, reconocido internacionalmente por sus más de treinta obras sobre historia y crítica cultural, nos ofrece sus descubrimientos y conclusiones sobre toda la cultura de Occidente desde 1500. Describe la forja del hombre occidental desde el Renacimiento y la Reforma hasta el presente, bajo una doble luz: la de aquellos tiempos y la de nuestros actuales intereses. Los triunfos y derrotas ocurridos en estos quinientos años confirman una inspirada saga que modifica la visión de este periodo como una época de opresión por parte de los hombres blancos europeos. Las mujeres y sus proezas son sobresalientes, y la libertad (incluso la sexual) no es un invento de las últimas décadas. Y cuando Barzun valora el presente como declive y no como culminación, no lo hace como un profeta apocalíptico. Por el contario, muestra que la decadencia es el cierre inevitable de las grandes épocas, condición necesaria para la creación de la novedad, que surgirá pronto, tal vez mañana. La crítica ha dicho... «Sin duda alguna, este libro sobrevivirá para deleitar y provocar a los lectores del siglo XXI; incluso asombrara a los del siglo XXII por su preclaridad.» The New York Times Book Review «Este libro pasará a la Historia... Supone el triunfo de la sabiduría sin ataduras.» Newsweek «¿Cuántas veces en la vida se encuentra uno frente a una obra maestra? Esta obra, sin ninguna duda, lo es.» National Review

‘Perhaps the best introduction yet to the roots of Thailand’s present political impasse. A brilliant book.’ Simon Long, The Economist Struggling to emerge from a despotic past, and convulsed by an intractable conflict that will determine its future, Thailand stands at a defining moment in its history. Scores have been killed on the streets of Bangkok. Freedom of speech is routinely denied. Democracy appears increasingly distant. And many Thais fear that the death of King Bhumibol Adulyadej is expected to unleash even greater instability. Yet in spite of the impact of the crisis, and the extraordinary importance of the royal succession, they have never been comprehensively analysed – until now. Breaking Thailand's draconian lèse majesté law, Andrew MacGregor Marshall is one of the only journalists covering contemporary Thailand to tell the whole story. Marshall provides a comprehensive explanation that for the first time makes sense of the crisis, revealing the unacknowledged succession conflict that has become entangled with the struggle for democracy in Thailand.
