Un yogurín surfista envuelto para regalo, por favor (Treinta y… Diario de una treintañera) (Spanish Edition)

by Sandra Broa

En el verano de 2015, mis amigos y yo nos fuimos de vacaciones una semana a la playa. En aquel entonces todavía no había llegado el baby boom a mi pandilla y solamente había una pareja que tenía una niña de tres años. Los demás todavía no se habían decidido a tener descendencia a pesar de llevar mil años emparejados (a excepción de mi hermana y de mí que éramos las únicas solteras del grupo), por lo que las vacaciones se presentaban como una semana de relax llena de planes tranquilos y familiares. Y la verdad es que sí que lo fueron, a excepción de una noche, en la que vivimos la historia más absurda que hemos protagonizado jamás… y eso que la mitad de nosotros ni siquiera llegamos a salir de casa.

My Ántonia

by Willa Cather

“My Ántonia” evokes the Nebraska prairie life of Willa Cather’s childhood, and commemorates the spirit and courage of immigrant pioneers in America. One of Cather’s earliest novels, written in 1918, it is the story of Ántonia Shimerda, who arrives on the Nebraska frontier as part of a family of Bohemian emigrants. Her story is told through the eyes of Jim Burden, a neighbor who will befriend Ántonia, teach her English, and follow the remarkable story of her life.
Working in the fields of waving grass and tall corn that dot the Great Plains, Ántonia forges the durable spirit that will carry her through the challenges she faces when she moves to the city. But only when she returns to the prairie does she recover her strength and regain a sense of purpose in life. In the quiet, probing depth of Willa Cather’s art, Ántonia’s story becomes a mobbing elegy to those whose persistence and strength helped build the American frontier.

Willa Cather was a great artist. â??Truman Capote
No romantic novel ever written in America, by man or woman, is one half so beautiful as “My Ántonia”. â??H. L. Mencken
The time will come when Willa Cather will be ranked above Hemingway. â??Leon Edel

Historias de Catalina Park (2018): Humor, sátira y suspense en historias reales de turistas, marineros y nativos (Spanish Edition)

by Francisco Javier Gomez Gutierre

En los años setenta cuando el autor de estas modestas páginas llegó al parque de Santa Catalina como un dibujante más de retratos y caricaturas, de los muchos que vinieron atraídos por la ola de prosperidad, se sorprendió al ver la variedad y riqueza humana que en él pululaba. Luego la lectura de la novela Catalina Park de Orlando Hernández y las Historias del Puerto de la Luz de Leandro Perdomo, donde salen tantos personajes populares del pasado inmediato como El Ratón, el Mandarria, Maestro Pepe, Luciano y tantos otros me sugirió la idea de escribir en clave de humor ya negro a veces, ya amarillo otras, las historias reales-con un punto de sátira y suspense-de algunos personajes que por una causa u otra destacaban entre la masa anónima de turistas, marineros y nativos
Desde la década de los sesenta hasta los noventa, el Parque de Santa Catalina, en el Puerto de la Luz de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, fue un lugar de encuentro celebrado en todos los destinos turísticos.
La pujanza de este puerto franco, con su variedad de mercancías y oferta de precios bicoca, junto con la inviabilidad del Canal de Suez que coadyuvaba al obligado abastecimiento de barcos en el Puerto de La Luz, la sociedad del bienestar, la expansión del movimiento hippie y la contracultura, el mayo del 68, la píldora y la liberación sexual de la mujer caracterizaron un momento optimista y alegre del siglo pasado que se reflejó en un espacio urbano de terrazas al aire libre en pleno invierno al lado del mar. Allí se encontraron en lúdica armonía, los turistas y nativos, los burgueses y pícaros, comerciantes africanos y marineros de todos los mares, rubias escandinavas y africanas de ébano, playboys y homosexuales, buscavidas, artistas, músicos y pintores callejeros que podrían tener un referente cultural parecido al del mítico zoco de Marrakech o la Rambla de las flores de Barcelona o el antiguo Montmartre de París.
El autor de estas páginas pretende rescatar y evocar el espíritu del Catalina Park y de la época, ayudándose de modismos canarios, expresiones chelis de entonces y términos de la calle y del caló de siempre.
