Margarita, está linda la mar by Sergio Ramírez( Book )

41 editions published between 1998 and 2012 in Spanish and English and held by 886 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"1907. Leon, Nicaragua. During a tribute which he delivers during his triumphal return to his native city, Ruben Dario writes on the fan of a little girl one of his most famous poems, "Margarita, How Beautiful the Sea."" "1956. In a cafe in Leon, a group of literati gather, dedicated to, among other things, the rigorous reconstruction of the legend surrounding Dario - and also to conspire. There will be an attempt against dictator Sornoza's life, and that little girl with the fan a half-century before, will not be a disinterested party." "In Margarita, How Beautiful the Sea, Sergio Ramirez encompasses, in a complete metaphor of reality and legend, the entire history of his country. The narrative moves along paths 50 years apart, which inevitably converge. The story becomes a fascinating exercise in the power of memory, in the influence of the past, fictitious or not, in the finality of reality."--Jacket
To bury our fathers : a novel of Nicaragua by Sergio Ramírez( Book )

50 editions published between 1977 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 808 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Former Vice-president of Nicaragua Sergio Ramirez is one of the best Latin American writers in these current times. Here he writes about a variety of Los Nicaraguenses whose lives, or that of their relatives, have crossed paths over the years from 1930 to the early 1960's and their heart-wrenching experiences as the Somoza dynasty ruled Nicaragua with an iron fist (or two). It is humorous, sad, touching, disturbing and full of insight for anyone wishing a clearer picture and fuller understanding of the social, economic and political circumstances that led to the country's revolution in 1979. --VM Fahey at Amazon.com
Castigo divino by Sergio Ramírez( Book )

37 editions published between 1988 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 550 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sergio Ramriez transforms the most celebrated criminal trial in Nicaraguan history--the murders in 1933 of three high society women by a Casanova named Castaneda--into an examination of Nicaraguan society on the brink of the first Somosa dictatorship, where passion, money, sex, gossip, political intrigue and judicial corruption all merge
Sandino, the testimony of a Nicaraguan patriot : 1921-1934 by Augusto César Sandino( Book )

9 editions published between 1990 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Washington is called the father of his country; the same may be said of Bol!var and Hidalgo; but I am only a bandit, according to the yardstick by which the strong and the weak are measured."--Augusto C. Sandino.For the first time in English, here are the impassioned words of the remarkable Nicaraguan hero and martyr Augusto C. Sandino, for whom the recent revolutionary regime was named. From 1927 until 1933 American Marines fought a bitter jungle war in Nicaragua, with Sandino as their guerrilla foe. This artisan and farmer turned soldier was an unexpectedly formidable military threat to one of the succession of regimes that the United States had imposed on that country beginning in 1909. He was also the creator of a deeply patriotic language of protest--eloquent, often naive, sometimes cruel, and always defiant. The documents in this volume, presented chronologically, constitute a spontaneous autobiography, a record not only of Sandino's adventurous life but also of a crucial and often overlooked aspect of the relationship between Nicaragua and the United States.Emblematic of the deep-rooted U.S. entanglement in Nicaraguan affairs is the fact that Anastasio Somoza, who assassinated Sandino in 1934, was the father of the Somoza overthrown by the Sandinistas in 1979. By 1933 Sandino's guerrilla army had at last forced the departure of the American Marines from Nicaragua, and in that same year he had negotiated a peace agreement with the new president, Juan Bautista Sacasa. Sacasa granted Sandino and a hundred followers a large tract of government land to establish an agricultural cooperative, and Sandino agreed to partial disarmament of of his men. But a year later he was seized near the presidential mansion by solders of Somoza's National Guard and assassinated with two of his generals. The National Guard then attacked and destroyed his cooperative.Both before and after Sandino's brutal assassination, Somoza tried to discredit the idiosyncratic blend of political, religious, and theosophical ideas through which Sandino inspired his soldiers. Included among the documents here are expressions not only of Sandino's military preoccupations and of his philosophy but also of his practical concerns about worker organization and legislation, the rights of women and children, the protection and development of Nicaragua's Indians, Central American unification, construction of a Nicaraguan canal for the benefit of Nicaraguans and the world in general, Indo-Hispanic cooperation, and land reform. This work, which is based on the two-volume Spanish edition compiled by Sergio Ramirez, includes an introduction by Robert Conrad setting Sandino's life in historical context.Originally published in 1990.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.

En las páginas de esta novela nace, vive y muere (al menos por el momento) el fotógrafo Castellón, uno de los personajes más atractivos y enigmáticos de la literatura hispanoamericana reciente. El lector verá a través del ojo de su cámara la contrahechura alucinante de nuestras nacionalidades --puro botín en la rebatinga de los poderosos--, la fantasía derrotada de los ideales y las utopías, la más persistente de ellas el canal por Nicaragua, y la convocatoria del genio y la miseria en diversos escenarios, desde el puerto de Greytown en Nicaragua, con sus palacios de mármol en medio de la selva, al ghetto de Varsovia y al monasterio de la Cartuja en Mallorca
Sombras nada más by Sergio Ramírez( Book )

22 editions published between 2002 and 2015 in Spanish and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nicaragua, 1979. Ante la inminente caída de la dictadura somocista, Alirio Martinica trata de huir por mar. Es aprehendido por jóvenes combatientes del Frente Sandinista y llevado a juicio popular, acusado de participar en acciones criminales del régimen de Somoza, de quien llegó a ser secretario privado. Ante sus jueces, todo un pueblo reunido en asamblea al aire libre, Alirio expondrá las razones por las que debe perdonársele. Las minucias, errores, abusos, injusticias, se entierran en el olvido cuando hay acontecimientos tan variados y vertiginosos como los que ocurren en una revolución, y muchos actos heroicos corren la misma suerte, aunque hayan servido de palanca al salto de la historia. En esta novela, Sergio Ramírez coloca al lector ante ese salto y le da elementos para juzgarlo."--Descripción de la editorial
El cielo llora por mí by Sergio Ramírez( Book )

30 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in Spanish and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"El inspector Dolores Morales y el subdirector Bert Dixon, del Departamento de Narcóticos de la policía nicaragüense, investigan la desaparición de una mujer; las únicas pistas son un yate abandonado en la costa de Laguna de Perlas, un libro quemado y una camiseta ensangrentada (más tarde aparecerán una valija con cien mil dólares y un vestido de novia). Los detectives crean una insólita red de espionaje en la que participan por igual la DEA y doña Sofía, afanadora del Departamento de Policía. Las cosas se ponen candentes cuando ocurre una serie de asesinatos, entre ellos el del principal testigo, y queda claro que la misión es frustrar una reunión de los carteles más importantes de México, Nicaragua y Colombia, y capturar a El Mancebo, sobrino de los fundadores del cártel de Cali. Las fuerzas del bien son a veces las fuerzas del mal"--Page 4 of cover
