              From the master of self-help in Spanish, Dejame que te cuente is one of the top bestselling titles on Argentinean psychologist Jorge Bucay's backlist, and has sold over 2 million copies worldwide since it was first published in 2002. English edition: LET ME TELL YOU A STORY, by J...orge Bucay [Europa Editions, 8/6/2013] Using his storytelling method as a tool for personal growth, therapist Jorge Bucay shares in Dejame que te cuente a set of stories that serve as metaphors for situations in everyday life and our daily routines. Demian is a young man eager to know more about himself and the world, and how to face some of life's daily challenges. He seeks help from Jorge, a psychoanalyst, who approaches Demian's dilemma in an unconventional way: every day, Jorge tells Demian a story that has been revisited and reshaped by the analyst to help his young friend overcome his doubts and find happiness. Some are classic fables, other are contemporary stories, or folk tales. They are stories that can help every one of us get a better understanding of ourselves, our relationships, and our fears.

              Translated into twenty languages and published in more than fourteen Spanish editions, Los pasos perdidos, originally published in 1953, is Alejo Carpentier's most heralded novel and a classic in Latin American literarature. English edition: The Lost Steps, by Alejo Carpentier [P...enguin Classics, 3/2/2021] A composer, fleeing an empty existence in New York City, takes a journey with his mistress to one of the few remaining areas of the world not yet touched by civilization - the upper reaches of a great South American river. Los pasos perdidos describes his search, his adventures, and the remarkable decision he makes in a village that seems truly outside history. Los pasos perdidos is a profound reflection of the modern world and the state of humanity, depicted through the lens of the marvellous reality and in a baroque style that Carpentier, like none other before, takes to the utmost limit. A true literary masterpiece.

              In this stunning literary debut, a young heroin addict embarks on a piercing, hypnotic journey to the end of the night. English translation of title: A Meeting with The Lady A young man leaves the sprawling metropolis behind and finds refuge in a room in a village forgotten by Go...d on the edge of the jungle, Zapotal. Surrounded by copious reserves of opium and heroin, the protagonist carries a notebook in which he has decided to chronicle the last moments of his life. In a haze of opium smoke, he enters the world of dreams, a magical dimension where one is no longer part of the world of the living. He floats between sleep and waking, between life and death, in his little room and around the country, obsessed with visions and memories, including the appearance of Valerie, the only love of his life. At the Rincon de Juan, a tiny hovel with a reputation for sheltering drunkards, troublemakers and prostitutes, and in a country that seems to be inhabited only by lost souls, the gaps in the protagonist's memory are multiplying, the drugs are running out and death is slow to meet him. Or has it already arrived and she just wasn't as he imagined?

              Julia Blackburn has always collected things that hold stories about the past, especially the very distant past: mammoth bones, little shells that happen to be two million years old, a flint shaped as a weapon long ago. Shortly after her husband's death, Blackburn became fascinate...d with Doggerland, the stretch of land that once connected Great Britain to Continental Europe but is now subsumed by the North Sea. She was driven to explore the lives of the people who lived there--studying its fossil record, as well as human artifacts that have been unearthed near the area. In Time Song, Blackburn brings us along on her journey to discover what Doggerland left behind, introducing us to the paleontologists, archaeologists, fishermen and fellow Doggerland enthusiasts she meets along the way. She sees the footprints of early humans fossilized in the soft mud of an estuary alongside the scattered pockmarks made by rain falling eight thousand years ago. She visits a cave where the remnants of a Neanderthal meal have turned to stone. In Denmark she sits beside Tollund Man, who seems to be about to wake from a dream, even though he had lain in a peat bog since the start of the Iron Age. As Doggerland begins to come into focus, what emerges is a profound meditation on time, a sense of infinity as going backward and an intimation of the immensity of everything that has already passed through its time on earth and disappeared.

              Geoff Dyer's earlier book on film, Zona, was about Andrei Tarkovsky's Stalker, so it was perhaps inevitable that he should next devote his unique critical and stylistic energies to Brian G. Hutton's Where Eagles Dare. A thrilling Alpine adventure starring a magnificent, bleary-ey...ed Richard Burton and a dynamically lethargic Clint Eastwood, Where Eagles Dare is the apex of 1960s war movies, by turns enjoyable and preposterous. 'Broadsword Calling Danny Boy' is Geoff Dyer's hilarious tribute to a film he has loved since childhood: it's a scene-by-scene analysis--or should that be send-up?--taking us from it's snowy, Teutonic opening credits to its vertigo-inducing climax.

              Bruno, Chief of Police is back with a new mystery: a corpse at the bottom of a well that will lead him from the Renaissance to the French Resistance--and beyond. When a young American turns up dead in the courtyard of an ancient castle in Bruno's jurisdiction, her death is assume...d to be an accident. But her doctor persuades the Chief of Police that things may not be so simple. So begins an investigation that leads Bruno to Monsieur de Bourdeille, the scholar with whom the girl had been studying--and a renowned art historian who became extraordinarily wealthy through the sale of paintings that may have been falsely attributed. In his younger days, Bourdeille had aided the Resistance and been arrested by a Vichy policeman, someone whose own life story becomes entangled in the case. Also in the mix is a young falconer who works at the Chateau des Milandes, the former home of fabled jazz singer Josephine Baker. In the end, of course, Bruno will tie all the loose threads together and see that justice is served--along with a generous helping of his signature Perigordian cuisine.

              ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR: TIME MAGAZINE - GLAMOUR - GOOD HOUSEKEEPING - BOOKPAGE - BOOK RIOT - LIBRARY JOURNAL A gripping and beautiful book about the power of love in the face of unimaginable loss. --Cheryl Strayed For readers of The Bright Hour and When Breath Becomes ...Air, a moving, transcendent memoir of loss and a stunning exploration of marriage in the wake of unimaginable grief. As the book opens: two-year-old Greta Greene is sitting with her grandmother on a park bench on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. A brick crumbles from a windowsill overhead, striking her unconscious, and she is immediately rushed to the hospital. But although it begins with this event and with the anguish Jayson and his wife, Stacy, confront in the wake of their daughter's trauma and the hours leading up to her death, Once More We Saw Stars quickly becomes a narrative that is as much about hope and healing as it is about grief and loss. Jayson recognizes, even in the midst of his ordeal, that there will be a life for him beyond it--that if only he can continue moving forward, from one moment to the next, he will survive what seems unsurvivable. With raw honesty, deep emotion, and exquisite tenderness, he captures both the fragility of life and absoluteness of death, and most important of all, the unconquerable power of love. This is an unforgettable memoir of courage and transformation--and a book that will change the way you look at the world.

              A dark, thrilling new novel from the best-selling author of Longbourn: a work of riveting psychological suspense that grapples with how to live as a woman in the world--or in the pages of a book--when the stakes are dangerously high. When a young writer accepts a job at a univers...ity in the remote English countryside, it's meant to be a fresh start, away from the bustle of London and the scene of a violent assault she is desperate to forget. But despite the distractions of her new life and the demands of single motherhood, her nerves continue to jangle. To make matters worse, a vicious debate about violence against women inflames the tensions and mounting rivalries in her creative-writing class. When a troubled student starts turning in chapters that blur the lines between fiction and reality, the professor recognizes herself as the main character in his book--and he has written her a horrific fate. Will she be able to stop life imitating art before it's too late? At once a breathless cat-and-mouse game and a layered interrogation of the fetishization of the female body, The Body Lies gives us an essential story for our time that will have you checking the locks on your doors.

              A luminous, hypnotic story of youth, sex, and power that tells of two young women who find themselves ostracized from the same small New England community for the same reasons--though they are separated by 150 years. Henrietta and Jane are fifteen and twelve, growing up in a farm...house on the outskirts of town. Their mother is a painter, lost in her art, their father a cook who's raised them on magical tales about their land. When Henrietta becomes obsessed with a boy from town, Jane takes to trailing the young couple, spying on their trysts--until one night, Henrietta vanishes into the woods. Elspeth and Claire are sisters separated by an ocean--Elspeth's pregnancy at seventeen meant she was quickly married and sent to America to avoid certain shame. But when she begins ingratiating herself to the town's wealthy mill owner, a series of wrenching and violent events unfold, culminating in her disappearance. As Jane and Claire search in their own times for their missing sisters, they each come across a strange story about a family that is transformed into coyotes. But what does this myth mean? Are their sisters dead, destroyed by men and lust? Or, are they alive and thriving beyond the watchful eyes of their same small town? With echoes of The Scarlet Letter, Abi Maxwell gives us a transporting, layered tale of two women, living generations apart yet connected by place and longing, and condemned for the very same desires.
