              One of Spanish Literature's most ancient and beloved classics, the first picaresque novel, now available from Vintage Espanol. Spain has produced two books that changed world literature: Don Quixote and Lazarillo de Tormes, the first picaresque novel ever written and the inspired... precursor to works as various as Vanity Fair and Huckleberry Finn. Banned by the Spanish Inquisition after publication in 1554, Lazarillo was soon translated throughout Europe, where it was widely copied. The book is a favorite to this day for its vigorous colloquial style and the earthy realism with which it exposes human hypocrisy. The bastard son of a prostitute, Lazarillo goes to work for a blind beggar, who beats and starves him, while teaching him some very useful dirty tricks. The boy then drifts in and out of the service of a succession of masters, each vividly sketched and together revealing the corrupt world of imperial Spain. Its miseries are made all the more apparent by the candor and surprising good cheer with which young Lazarillo recounts his ever more curious fate.

              From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Salt to the Sea and Between Shades of Gray comes a gripping, extraordinary portrait of love, silence, and secrets under Franco's dictatorship in Spain. [English edition: The Fountains of Silence / Ruta Sepetys / 9780399160318 (Phil...omel Books, 10/1/2019)] Madrid, 1957. Under the fascist dictatorship of General Francisco Franco, Spain is hiding a dark secret. Meanwhile, tourists and foreign businessmen flood into Spain under the welcoming promise of sunshine and wine. Among them is eighteen-year-old Daniel Matheson, the son of an oil tycoon, who arrives in Madrid with his parents hoping to connect with the country of his mother's birth through the lens of his camera. Photography--and fate--introduce him to Ana, whose family's interweaving obstacles reveal the lingering grasp of the Spanish Civil War--as well as chilling definitions of fortune and fear. Daniel's photographs leave him with uncomfortable questions amidst shadows of danger. He is backed into a corner of difficult decisions to protect those he loves. Lives and hearts collide, revealing an incredibly dark side to the sunny Spanish city. Master storyteller Ruta Sepetys once again shines light into one of history's darkest corners in this epic, heart-wrenching novel about identity, unforgettable love, repercussions of war, and the hidden violence of silence--inspired by the true postwar struggles of Spain.

              El descubrimiento y conquista de America fueron acontecimientos cruciales de incalculables consecuencias, aun hoy en vias de resolucion. La Historia de la conquista de Nueva Espana es una cronica portentosa y minuciosa de un testigo directo de aquella empresa descomunal. El brio ...excepcional del relato, el vigor de la prosa y su infatigable capacidad para evocar hombres, acciones y escenarios le conceden, sin lugar a dudas, un sitio de privilegio en la literatura espanola. El libro contiene tres grandes bloques tematicos: el descubrimiento de Yucatan por las expediciones de Francisco Hernandez de Cordoba y Juan de Grijalva (1517-18); la epopeya propiamente dicha bajo los estandartes de Hernan Cortes (1519-21); y el viaje a Honduras, complementado con una extensa miscelanea de noticias sobre la Nueva Espana. Cada pagina es un dechado de prodigiosa intensidad, producto del talento narrativo de Bernal Diaz, de la energia de su estilo y del terrible verismo con que narra la aventura. Nada queda fuera de su cronica en esta edicion concentrada en sus mejores capitulos, que se incluyen por entero: ni las vicisitudes y sucesos militares, ni la caracterizacion de los personajes mas relevantes (Cortes, Moctezuma, etc.), ni los sentimientos y experiencias personales de un soldado empenado en dar exacta y precisa cuenta de los avatares vividos en esa tierra desconocida. Pero quizas la grandeza de esta obra radique en el aliento epico que la anima. A diferencia de otros cronistas, a los que se enfrenta y critica, Bernal Diaz presenta la conquista de Mexico como una empresa comun, como la gesta de un colectivo de hombres cuyos aciertos y errores corresponden al pueblo espanol.

              Nueva edicion de Soldados de Salamina, novela imprescindible del siglo XXI, revisada a fondo por el autor y rematada por un esclarecedor epilogo escrito por el mismo. A finales de enero de 1939, apenas dos meses antes del final de la guerra civil, un grupo de prisioneros franquis...tas es fusilado cerca la frontera francesa por soldados republicanos que huyen hacia el exilio. Entre esos prisioneros se halla Rafael Sanchez Mazas, fundador e ideologo de la Falange, poeta y futuro ministro de Franco, quien consigue milagrosamente escapar y ocultarse en el bosque mientras los republicanos lo persiguen; hasta que un soldado lo descubre, lo encanona y, mirandolo a los ojos, le perdona la vida. Sesenta anos mas tarde, un novelista fracasado descubre por azar este enterrado episodio belico y, fascinado por el, emprende una investigacion para aclarar sus circunstancias y desentranar su significado. ?Quien era de verdad Rafael Sanchez Mazas? ?Cual fue su verdadera peripecia de guerra? ?Quien fue el soldado que le dejo escapar? ?Y por que lo hizo? ?Que secreto escondia su mirada? Novela revolucionaria y deslumbrante, Soldados de Salamina cosecho un extraordinario exito de critica y publico y catapulto la carrera de uno de los novelistas mas prestigiosos de la actual narrativa espanola. Desde entonces no ha dejado de leerse en todo el mundo con creciente admiracion.

              Stephen King ambienta su novela en una penitenciaria de presos condenados a muerte, una antesala del infierno de la que se sirve para trazar una radiografia del horror en estado puro. Octubre de 1932, penitenciaria de Cold Mountain. Los condenados a muerte aguardan el momento de ...ser conducidos a la silla electrica a traves del pasillo conocido como la Milla Verde. Los crimenes abominables que han cometido les convierten en carnaza de un sistema legal que se alimenta de un circulo de locura, muerte y venganza. El guardia de la prision Paul Edgecombe ha visto cosas raras en sus anos trabajando en la Milla. Pero nunca ha visto a nadie como John Coffey, un hombre con el cuerpo de un gigante y la mente de un nino, condenado por un crimen aterrador en su violencia e impactante en su depravacion. Y en este lugar donde reciben el maximo castigo, Edgecombe esta a punto de descubrir la terrible y maravillosa verdad sobre Coffey, una verdad que desafiara sus mas intimas creencias... La milla verde representa un hito en la aclamada trayectoria del maestro indiscutible de la narrativa de terror contemporanea.

              Why do seemingly inoffensive bee pollen, dust mite or pet hair provoke allergic reactions? This concise yet insightful book dives into the question of unexplained allergies, why they happen and what natural remedies we can include in our routines to improve our quality of life de...spite them. [English translation of title: Natural Remedies for Allergies] Allergies are a telltale sign of one condition: inner imbalance. If you suffer from allergies, it is essential to not only find the origin or root cause of this reaction, but also to comprehend why our immune system is out of balance. The good news is there is a wide array of possible treatments, but because everyone has a unique immune system, there is no one-size-fits-all remedy. For this reason, generic medications will not always provide relief, and this is where natural remedies can truly make a difference. In this book, you will find: - Detailed explanations of the main types of allergies and their characteristics - Thorough information on existing natural remedies and therapies to treat allergic reactions - Key points to understand our immune system's behavior - Advice on ideal diets to follow for people with allergies - Analysis of particular case studies that exemplify the symptoms and treatments of different allergies
