A beautiful young woman : a novel by Julián López( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""A moving story. powerful, celebratory, and loving."--Laura Cardona, La Nacion. Set in the midst of Argentina's military dictatorship, a poignant and evocative debut novel about family, political violence, and the consequences of dissidence As political violence escalates around them, a young boy and his single mother live together in an apartment in Buenos Aires -- which has recently been taken over by Argentina's military dictatorship. When the boy returns home one day to find his mother missing (or "disappeared"), the story fractures, and the reader encounters him fully grown, consumed by the burden of his loss, attempting to reconstruct the memory of his mother. By leaping forward in time, the boy -- now a man -- subtly gives shape to his mother's activism, and in the process recasts the memories from his childhood. The result is a stylistically masterful and deeply moving novel marking the English-language debut of one of Argentina's most promising writers"--
Glaxo : a novel by Hernán Ronsino( Book )

4 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Glaxo is a chilling novel of betrayal, romance, and murder, from a major Latin American writer being published in English for the first time. In a derelict town in the Argentine pampa, a decades-old betrayal simmers among a group of friends. One, a barber, returns from serving time for a crime he didn't commit; another, a policeman with ties to the military regime, discovers his wife's infidelity; a third lays dying. And an American missionary has been killed. But what happened among these men? Spinning through a series of voices and timelines, Hernán Ronsino's Glaxo reveals a chilling story of four boys who grow up breaking horses and idolizing John Wayne, only to become adults embroiled in illicit romances, government death squads, and, ultimately, murder. Around them, the city falls apart. The "primitive calm" is punctuated only by the sound of trains--a sound "so shrill it hurts your teeth," and loud enough, we learn, to overwhelm the pop of gunfire. Both an austere, pastoral drama and a suspenseful whodunit, Glaxo crackles with tension and mystery. And it marks the stunning English-language debut of a major Latin American writer."--
The winterlings by Cristina Sánchez-Andrade( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two sisters return to the small parish of Tierra de Cha? in Galicia after a long absence, to the former home of their grandfather, from which they fled when they were just children.--When news arrives that the famous American actress Ava Gardner will be shooting a movie in Spain and that lookalikes are wanted, the sisters have a chance to make their dreams come true. But the past is catching up with the present, and the family secrets that led to the Winterlings' return won't stay buried for long
The subsidiary by Matías Celedón Pinto( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""This is a book written in stamps. And it works: the form perfectly emulates the gloomy atmosphere of the subsidiary and the broken emotional environment of its employees. With few words, The Subsidiary says a great deal."--La Pollera. In the subsidiary offices of a major Latin American corporation, the power suddenly goes out: the lights switch off; the doors lock; the phone lines are cut. The employees are trapped in total darkness with only cryptic, intermittent announcements dispatched over the loud speaker, instructing all personnel to remain at their work stations until further notice. The Subsidiary is one worker's testimony to what happens during the days he spends trapped within the building's walls, told exclusively--and hauntingly--through the stamps he uses to mark corporate documents. Hand-designed by the author with a stamp set he bought in an bookstore in Santiago, Matí as Celedon's The Subsidiary is both an exquisite object and a chilling avant-garde tale from one of Chile's rising literary stars"--
