Book Summary: The Sheik (1919) is a romance novel by English author E.M. Hull. Written while the author’s husband was serving in the Great War, The Sheik launched Hull’s career as a bestselling author of romance fiction, selling millions of copies following the release of a 1921 film of the same name. Part of a tradition of Orientalist fiction, The Sheik has proven as controversial as it has been popular, and serves now as a reminder of the ways in which British subjects imagined themselves in relation to the colonial world. In an Algerian city, the young Diana Mayo prepares for a month-long journey through the desert. Despite warnings from family and friends, she departs with her Arab guide. Surrounded by endless swaths of sand, Diana is soon kidnapped by Sheik Ahmed Ben Hassan, who has bribed her guide to abandon her. Taken to his camp, Diana is repeatedly raped over a period of weeks, and soon gives up hope of ever escaping. After a thwarted attempt at stealing one of the Sheik’s horses, she slowly begins to fall in love with Ben Hassan, but realizes she must hide her feelings from a man who views her solely as an object of desire. As months go by, Diana learns the tragic truth behind the Sheik’s hatred of the English, and the two begin to grow close. When she is kidnapped by a rival, however, Ben Hassan must risk his life in order to save her. The Sheik is a bestselling romance novel by a master of English popular fiction. With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of E.M. Hull’s The Sheik is a classic of English romance fiction reimagined for modern readers.

Book Summary: Benjamín Chaparro is a retired law clerk still obsessed by the brutal, decades-old rape and murder of a young married woman in her own bedroom. While attempting to write a book about the case, he revisits the details of the investigation, recalling along the way the major players: Pablo Sandoval, Chaparro’s erratic yet brilliant partner; Ricardo Morales, the deceased woman’s husband, who never recovered from the tragedy; and Isidoro Gómez, the sickeningly obsessive suspect with whom Chaparro feels an uneasy kinship. As he reaches into the past, Chaparro also recalls the beginning of his long, unrequited love for Irene, then just an intern, now a respected judge. Set in the Buenos Aires of the 1970s, Sacheri’s tale reveals the underpinnings of Argentina’s Dirty War and takes on the question of justice—what it really means and in whose hands it belongs. This haunting crime thriller also explores the boundaries of love in all its forms: adoration, devotion and obsession.

Book Summary: Since its U.S. debut a quarter-century ago, this brilliant text has set a new standard for historical scholarship of Latin America. It is also an outstanding political economy, a social and cultural narrative of the highest quality, and perhaps the finest description of primitive capital accumulation since Marx. Rather than chronology, geography, or political successions, Eduardo Galeano has organized the various facets of Latin American history according to the patterns of five centuries of exploitation. Thus he is concerned with gold and silver, cacao and cotton, rubber and coffee, fruit, hides and wool, petroleum, iron, nickel, manganese, copper, aluminum ore, nitrates, and tin. These are the veins which he traces through the body of the entire continent, up to the Rio Grande and throughout the Caribbean, and all the way to their open ends where they empty into the coffers of wealth in the United States and Europe. Weaving fact and imagery into a rich tapestry, Galeano fuses scientific analysis with the passions of a plundered and suffering people. An immense gathering of materials is framed with a vigorous style that never falters in its command of themes. All readers interested in great historical, economic, political, and social writing will find a singular analytical achievement, and an overwhelming narrative that makes history speak, unforgettably. This classic is now further honored by Isabel Allende's inspiring introduction. Universally recognized as one of the most important writers of our time, Allende once again contributes her talents to literature, to political principles, and to enlightenment.

In one of the most notorious chapters in the book, Luther urges the German people to “raze and destroy [the Jews’] houses," and it is for such statements that the book is best known.

This annotated edition of Martin Luther’s On the Jews & Their Lies provides readers with a more thorough understanding of one of the most controversial works of the Father of the Protestant Reformation, Martin Luther.

Book Summary: Subject: Delete this message after you read it... Dear Hayley, I'm assuming you're still hungover, so I'll make this brief. Last night, you slipped under my sheets (without my permission), and we almost had sex. I got the hell out of the bed once I realized it was you, and I took you home. That's the story. The end. Period. Just in case you've forgotten, you're my best friend's little sister. We will never be anything more. (We can't be anything more.) Our previous friendship is still unresolved--or "over" in your terms, so I'd prefer if we worked on becoming 'just friends' again since you're in town. Nonetheless, I'm not a man who leaves questions unanswered--even the drunken ones, so to properly close our inappropriate conversation: 1) Yes, I liked the way your lips felt against mine when you were on top of me. 2) Yes, I do "prefer" rough sex, but I'm pretty sure I wasn't rough with you. 3) No, I had no idea you were still a virgin... This message never happened, Corey

Book Summary: La obra, tanto literaria como plástica, del poeta salmantino Aníbal Núñez (1944-1987), tuvo durante su vida una difusión muy reducida y se situó casi sin excepción en la marginalidad, lo que provocó que su publicación y reconocimiento se produjesen tardíamente. El problema de la heterogeneidad estética de la obra de Aníbal Núñez, su constante y frenética evolución estética, así como su ausencia de los centros culturales españoles, además de los aspectos más sombríos de su biografía y su gusto por situarse en lugares fronterizos, son los motivos por los que no se le prestó la suficiente atención. Sin embargo, la originalidad y la belleza de su obra poética, así como la coherencia de su reflexión sobre la poesía y el arte en general desde la propia obra son aspectos fundamentales para consolidar la inclusión muy merecida de este autor salmantino en la historiografía literaria contemporánea y, más aún, para ayudar a comprender el fenómeno poético en la segunda mitad del siglo XX, sus preocupaciones y conflictos así como las estrategias y los recursos que utiliza para dar soluciones a los mismos. Este libro constituye un estudio en profundidad de la obra de Núñez, una sistematización del análisis de su obra, cuya lectura crítica muestra la evolución de su teoría poética, la cual se fundamenta en un vínculo real y vital del poeta con el lenguaje. Cada una de las obras de Aníbal Núñez afronta una crítica cultural del momento en el que se encuadra, desentrañando procedimientos de represión del poder, tanto dentro del sistema dictatorial como en el período de la transición y la democracia. Su producción poética delata la obsesión y el compromiso del autor con el arte y, más concretamente, con el lenguaje.

Book Summary: Nikos Kazantzakis inició su carrera literaria con la publicación—bajo el seudónimo de Karma Nirvami—de un desesperado conjuro de amor: "Lirio y serpiente", publicado por primera vez en Atenas en 1906. Escrito a los veintidós años, fue inspirado por Kathleen Forde, una joven irlandesa de quien Kazantzakis se enamoró perdidamente mientras recibía de ella clases de inglés y le leía al oído poemas de Byron y de Keats. Con ella consumó su amor a los diecinueve años, cuando se fugaron juntos a las cumbres del monte Psiloritis (Ida), tumbados los dos—como los pastores de un idilio antiguo—sobre el suelo de tierra de la ermita de la Santa Cruz, bajo la mirada hierática y atónita de los iconos de Cristo y de la Virgen. Impetuosa, obsesiva, recalcitrante a veces, de juvenil premura y agitada parataxis, la obra le atormentó toda su vida. A sus setenta años fue entregando todos los ejemplares que le quedaban al fuego. Pero no dejó de contarla entre sus obras, incluyéndola en las anejas a su candidatura a la Academia de Atenas (1945) y al Premio Nobel de Literatura (1946). "Una pequeña joya literaria, llena de pasión, lujuria, ternura, desesperación y poesía. Pero también es una historia de muerte y locura, de la obsesión enfermiza del artista por su musa, a quien termina arrastrando a un final digno de la mejor tragedia griega”. Marta Otero, La Voz de Galicia "Tiene la virtud de mostrar el talento del autor en estado puro, libre de toda contención y de la contradictoria amalgama de credos o ideologías que caracterizó sus novelas más celebradas. De inequívoca filiación simbolista, Lirio y serpiente se asemeja en realidad a un largo y arrebatado poema en prosa, repleto de pasajes turbadores u obsesivos que revelan una sensibilidad consagrada -esa es la palabra- a los temas habituales del imaginario tardorromántico: la belleza, el erotismo, la locura, la muerte”.

Book Summary: El origen del presente volumen se remonta a la celebración que, en septiembre del año 2016, la AEELH llevó a cabo en la Universidad Complutense de Madrid (como recuerdo de Rubén Darío a los 100 años de su fallecimiento). Si bien este libro se originó en dicho encuentro, ha sido ampliado y concebido como un volumen orgánico en el que los distintos especialistas abordan temas que no siempre han sido frecuentados por la crítica canónica. Se presenta dividido en dos grandes apartados: el primero se enfoca en la caracterización fundamental del Modernismo y sus seguidores, mientras que el segundo indaga en los diálogos del movimiento con los autores de su tiempo, así como en las problemáticas relaciones con las vanguardias y en el hondo impacto del Modernismo a lo largo de la literatura del siglo XX, que alcanza hasta nuestros días.

Book Summary: Melanie and Seth Fowler are parents of a six-year-old boy who has autism. Melanie is not only a concerned parent, but is schooled in speech therapy, deaf education, and special education. When the Fowlers found out their son was on the autism spectrum, they were like so many other young parents out there—scared, angry, confused, helpless. They felt like they were on an island. While many books were given to them regarding autism, none was able to console the Fowlers in their time of grief and desperation. Immediately they realized they needed to write a book that deals with immediate steps when dealing with a child on the autism spectrum. Look at My Eyes is an insight not only into their lives but tells how to battle for insurance coverage, explains helpful, scientifically based therapies, and deals with quackery and harmful treatments. The Fowlers discuss talking with relatives about a child who is autistic, they provide helpful websites and in-home training exercises, and encourage readers to be strong in their faith and rest upon the Lord for strength, grace and mercy. Look at My Eyes has now been translated into Spanish. Both English and Spanish versions can be found at www.lookatmyeyes.com. The Fowlers live in Fort Worth, Texas, with their two children, William and Margaret and their new golden doodle, Charley Bear. For more information: [email protected]
