              A story of sex and intrigue set amid rich people in a beautiful house with a picturesque swimming pool . . . Very funny. --Rumaan Alam, The Washington Post A brilliantly funny novel of bad behavior in the post-Obama era, featuring a wealthy Connecticut divorcee, her college-age d...aughter, and the famous novelist who is seduced by them both. Rachel Klein never meant to kiss her creative writing professor, but with his long eyelashes, his silky hair, and the sad, beautiful life he laid bare on Twitter, she does, and the kiss is very nice. Zahid Azzam never planned to become a houseguest in his student's sprawling Connecticut home, but with the sparkling swimming pool, the endless supply of Whole Foods strawberries, and Rachel's beautiful mother, he does, and the home is very nice. Becca Klein never thought she'd have a love affair so soon after her divorce, but when her daughter's professor walks into her home, bringing with him an apricot standard poodle named Princess, she does, and the affair is . . . a very bad idea. Zigzagging between the rarefied circles of Manhattan investment banking, the achingly self-serious MFA programs of the Midwest, and the private bedrooms of Connecticut, Very Nice is an audacious, addictive, and wickedly smart take on the way we live now.

              Publicada por primera vez en 1929, este clasico de la literatura venezolana y latinoamericana narra el apasionado triangulo amoroso entre Santos Luzardo, dona Barbara y su hija, Marisela.

El conflicto que se producira desestabilizara la hacienda y cambiara todo para siempre. Mas alla de su ardiente historia, Dona Barbara simboliza la lucha entre dos fuerzas, el bien y el mal; la civilizacion y la barbarie; el mundo de ayer y el de manana. Una historia universal de amor, seduccion y violentas pasiones.

              One of the The Wall Street Journal's 10 Best Fiction Books of 2019 A gem of a book . . . lyrical, tender, and profoundly insightful. --Abraham Verghese, author of Cutting for Stone A beautiful, bracingly honest debut novel about the triangle formed between a young woman and the c...ouple whose life she enters one transformative year: a story about love and compassion, the fluidity of desire, and the myriad ways of devotion. Ella is nearing thirty, and not yet living the life she imagined. Her artistic ambitions as a student in Minnesota have given way to an unintended career in caregiving. One spring, Bryn--a retired carpenter--hires her to help him care for Jill, his wife of many years. A car accident caused a brain injury that has left Jill verbally diminished; she moves about the house like a ghost of her former self, often able to utter, like an incantation, only the words that comprise this novel's title. As Ella is drawn ever deeper into the couple's household, her presence unwanted but wholly necessary, she is profoundly moved by the tenderness Bryn shows toward the wife he still fiercely loves. Ella is startled by the yearning this awakens in her, one that complicates her feelings for her girlfriend, Alix, and causes her to look at relationships of all kinds--between partners, between employer and employee, and above all between men and women--in new ways. Tightly woven, humane and insightful, tracing unflinchingly the most intimate reaches of a young woman's heart and mind, Say Say Say is a riveting story about what it means to love, in a world where time is always running out.

This is a playful and profound guidebook full of surprising, brief, incisive glimpses into Japanese culture. Iyer's adventures and observations as he travels from a meditation hall to a love hotel, from West Point to Kyoto Station, make for a constantly surprising series of provocations guaranteed to pique the interest and curiosity of those who don't know Japan and to remind those who do of the wide range of fascinations the country and culture contain.

              The sixth Lisbeth Salander story in the Millennium Series--the crime-fiction phenomenon that has sold more than 90 million copies worldwide. Lisbeth Salander--the fierce, unstoppable girl with the dragon tattoo--has disappeared. She's sold her apartment in Stockholm. She's gone s...ilent electronically. She's told no one where she is. Mikael Blomkvist is trying to reach Lisbeth. He needs her help unraveling the identity of a man who died with Blomkvist's phone number in his pocket--a man who does not exist in any official records and whose garbled last words hinted at knowledge that would be dangerous to people in the highest echelons of government and industry. Once again, Salander and Blomkvist will come to each other's aid, moving in tandem toward the truths they each seek. In the end, it will be Blomkvist--in a moment of unimaginable self-sacrifice--who will make it possible for Lisbeth to face the most important battle of her life, against her twin sister Camilla, and, finally, to put her past to rest.

              With a lifetime of experience, knowledge, and appreciation, the internationally celebrated conductor and teacher answers the questions: Why should I listen to classical music? How can I get the most from the listening experience? A protege of Leonard Bernstein and an eminent cond...uctor who has toured and recorded all over the world, John Mauceri helps us reap the joys and pleasures of classical music. Briefly, we learn the way a musical tradition born in ancient Greece, embraced by the Roman Empire, and subsequently nurtured by influences from across the globe gave shape to the classical music that came to be embraced by cultures from Japan to Bolivia. Mauceri then examines the music itself, helping us understand what it is we hear when we listen to classical music: how, by a kind of sonic metaphor, it expresses the deepest recesses of human feeling and emotion; how each piece bears the traces of its history; how the concert experience--a unique one each time--allows us to discover music anew. Unpretentious, graceful, instructive, this is a book for the aficionado, the novice, and anyone looking to have the love of music fired within them.

              Cantoras is a stunning lullaby to revolution--and each woman in this novel sings it with a deep ferocity. Again and again, I was lifted, then gently set down again--either through tears, rage, or laughter. Days later, I am still inside this song of a story. --Jacqueline Woodson, ...National Book Award-winning author From the highly acclaimed, award-winning author of The Gods of Tango, a revolutionary new novel about five wildly different women who, in the midst of the Uruguayan dictatorship, find one another as lovers, friends, and ultimately, family. In 1977 Uruguay, a military government crushed political dissent with ruthless force. In this environment, where the everyday rights of people are under attack, homosexuality is a dangerous transgression to be punished. And yet Romina, Flaca, Anita La Venus, Paz, and Malena--five cantoras, women who sing --somehow, miraculously, find one another. Together, they discover an isolated, nearly uninhabited cape, Cabo Polonio, which they claim as their secret sanctuary. Over the next thirty-five years, their lives move back and forth between Cabo Polonio and Montevideo, the city they call home, as they return, sometimes together, sometimes in pairs, with lovers in tow, or alone. And throughout, again and again, the women will be tested--by their families, lovers, society, and one another--as they fight to live authentic lives. A genre-defining novel and De Robertis's masterpiece, Cantoras is a breathtaking portrait of queer love, community, forgotten history, and the strength of the human spirit. At once timeless and groundbreaking, Cantoras is a tale about the fire in all our souls and those who make it burn.
