El gallego de mi árbol (Spanish Edition)

by Isabel Lagger

¿Con qué elementos armar un árbol genealógico? Si hay suerte, con fotos, documentos, cartas y todo tipo de registros afines. No es este el caso. La autora recreó la prehistoria de su abuelo apelando a su memoria infantil, y a los retazos de recuerdos que aportaron los suyos, y así pudo presentar al gallego del título, a la sazón su abuelo, pero en el tiempo en que no era su abuelo. Salvo el nombre del protagonista, Manuel Gigerey, los demás fueron cambiados. Por razones obvias.



Salford to Shanghai: An Extraordinary Ordinary Story

by Ruth Hampson

An involving, pacy, moving and humorous memoir of an ordinary girl who goes from roots in a northern English city to work in the City of London, study martial arts in China and visit tea growers in Kenya before going on to start up her own business. Her descriptions of the people and places she encounters are full of background information, atmosphere and humanity. The accounts of her adventures in China and Kenya are particularly immersive and entertaining. One minute moving, the next funny and always informative, it also describes how a love of reading helped her to cope with teenage illness, overcome shyness and make some of her dreams come true.
