Viajes con Charley : en busca de los Estados Unidos by John Steinbeck( Book )

13 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in Spanish and Undetermined and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En buena medida, debemos a la obra de novelistas como Steinbeck nuestra idea de la América genuina, esa que, ajena a la sofisticasción, está hecha de trabajos duros y personalidades fuertes. A los 58 años, John Steinbeck decidió prescindir de las convenciones de la ficción y empredió un viaje por Estados Unidos con vistas a obtener una impresión directa de su paisaje y sus gentes. Acompañado de su perrito Charley, recorrió cuarenta estados, circuló por autopistas y carreteras secundarias, compartió mesa y mantel con camioneros, vendedores y viajeros sin rumbo, recobró viejas amistades esparcidas por el país y, sobre todo, se imbuyó del paisaje físico y moral de su tierra. El resultado de estas experiencias es una reflexión realista, a la vez lúcida y apasionada, sobre el carácter americano, un ejercicio literario que aúna capacidad descriptiva e inspiración lírica, un estudio que consolida y ahonda las impresiones que nos dejaron las novelas de Steinbeck

41 editions published between 1978 and 2013 in Spanish and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Charles Bukowski se dio a conocer en España con sus «relatos de locura cotidiana», publicados en dos tomos: "Erecciones, eyaculaciones, exhibiciones" y "La máquina de follar", que le valieron una inmediata popularidad. Su obra ha provocado, entre otros, los siguientes comentarios: «Un maestro de la sátira anarquista. Una leyenda viviente» (New York Review of Books). «Los más honestos, directos, iluminadores e importantes relatos publicados en este país en los últimos 20 años» (San Francisco Chronicle). «Un humor sardónico que a veces da la impresión de que W. C. Fields se haya reencarnado como escritor» (Rolling Stone Magazine). «Bukowski. Considerado por muchos como el mejor escritor americano. Y por otros posiblemente el peor. Yo estoy entre los primeros» (Jim Christy, Toronto Hobe). «Un profeta de nuestro tiempo» (The New York Times Book Review) --

Hitler, 1936-45 : nemesis by Ian Kershaw( Book )

8 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in Spanish and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing on many previously unutilized sources, Kershaw describes the Draconian measures taken by Hitler's henchmen -- Himmler, Goebbels, Goring, Bormann, and others -- to tighten the Nazi grip on the home front without significant resistance from the German people. In the Fuhrer's name, Gestapo and SS leaders orchestrate and carry out the persecutions that lead to the death camps of the Holocaust." "After the D-Day invasion and a steady stream of defeats on the Eastern Front, Hitler is virtually alone in insisting that victory is still possible. When Hitler asserts that his survival after an assassination attempt by German officers on July 20, 1944, "is a sign of Providence that I must continue my work," Kershaw depicts a beleaguered fanatic prepared to leave his country in ruins. Ten months later, while his shattered forces desperately attempt to stave off the Russian onslaught on Berlin, Hitler spends his final days, chillingly documented here, in a bunker under the city until he ends his life with a pistol shot to his head." "Throughout this masterful account, Kershaw never loses sight of the German people and their massive support for Hitler and the Nazi regime. "Decades would not fully erase," he observes, "the simple but compelling sentiment painted in huge letters" in Munich shortly after the surrender to the Allies: "I am ashamed to be a German."
