Stranger : the challenge of a Latino immigrant in the Trump era by Jorge Ramos( Book )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 566 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jorge Ramos, an Emmy award-winning journalist, Univision's longtime anchorman and widely considered the "voice of the voiceless" within the Latino community, was forcefully removed from an Iowa press conference in 2015 by then-candidate Donald Trump after trying to ask about his plans on immigration. In this personal manifesto, Ramos sets out to examine what it means to be a Latino immigrant, or just an immigrant, in present-day America. Using current research and statistics, with a journalist's nose for a story, and interweaving his own personal experience, Ramos shows us the changing face of America while also trying to find an explanation for why he, and millions of others, still feel like strangers in this country
The movies of my life : a novel by Alberto Fuguet( Book )

7 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 485 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Beltran Soler is from Chile, a land in constant movement. A seismologist who knows more about the science of tectonic plate movement than about life, he is cocooned in a world of seismic data, scientific articles, and natural disasters. Beltran believes he can protect himself from the world around him by losing himself to theoretical pursuits, but thousands of feet above the ground he so meticulously analyzes, on a flight to L.A. - the capital of film and the city in which he was raised - he has a conversation that sparks in him a firestorm of nostalgia. Suddenly Beltran finds himself recalling the fifty most important movies of his life - films both precious and absurd that affected him during his childhood and adolescence in the 1960s and '70s." "From Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory to Close Encounters of the Third Kind to kitschy disaster films such as Earthquake!, as well as cult classics of '70s sci-fi such as Logan's Run, Beltran connects with his past by remembering the films he saw, the people with whom he saw them, and even the theaters in which they were shown. Recalling one movie after another, he reconstructs the unusual history of his eccentric and dysfunctional family, coming to terms with his obsession with the movies that helped define him - often whether he wanted them to or not." "Set in the oddly parallel worlds of Nixon's suburban California and Pinochet's Santiago de Chile, this ingenious novel throws us into the claustrophobic world of an adolescent who tries to escape from a tumultuous and fragmented existence, one caught between two languages, two cultures, and two families that watch the same movies. Movies of My Life is a book about film and about how movies embed themselves in our souls, helping us all share a blinding fondness for the magic of make-believe."--Jacket

In exile in England, his former lover finds him a disheartening job that only intensifies his feelings of bitterness and despair: caring for 3,800 refugee children who have also fled to England after the city of Bilbao fell to Franco's army.

Friction by Eloy Urroz Kanan( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This novel features the reader as a protagonist. The narrator, a frustrated college professor who happens to be "our friend," addresses the reader constantly ("You, the one holding this book"). Set in the year 2025, the novel immerses the reader in such fictitious worlds as La Rmoras, a town in Baja California that appears in one of Urroz's previous works. The author presents comical anecdotes about Mexican history (Pancho Villa is almost murdered by Japanese cooks), current urban problems that continue in the future (poverty, corruption, and pollution), and the world of academia. Reincarnations, demigods, and Aztec and Greek divinities take center stage
The obstacles by Eloy Urroz Kanan( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the most remarkable books of contemporary Mexican literature, The Obstacles is the story of young writers coming of age in a world dominated entirely by their own fictions. It tells, in alternating chapters, the stories of two teenagers, Ricardo and Elias, who are characters in each others' novels. Ricardo lives in Mexico City with his mother, who is mourning the recent death of her husband. Elias, an orphan, lives in Las Remoras, a town on the Baja Peninsula that has been invented and meticulously imagined by Ricardo. Blurring our notions of reality and fiction, Eloy Urroz takes the reader into a world where characters invent characters and challenge their creators. And the book's conclusion--in which a surprising connection between Ricardo and Elias is revealed--shows that not even fiction can be controlled in a world of such incredible unpredictability."--Publisher's website
