Ha dejado de llover by Andrés Barba( Book )

17 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""She remembers that the comment really stung and then immediately stopped stinging--like accidentally touching an open sore--when she took into account that a virtue can also be a defect if you just shift your perspective a few inches." Taken from one of the four novellas comprising Rain Over Madrid--"Fatherhood," "Guile," "Fidelity," and "Shopping"--these words encapsulate the whole book's leitmotiv: all of a sudden, someone is finally able to comprehend somebody else's life. By featuring totally divergent characters in different settings, Barba in these stories tackles issues such as death, the inability to communicate feelings, the sudden eruption of love, fascination for the other, the architecture of desire and the fear of happiness."--Page 4 of cover

La risa caníbal : humor, pensamiento cínico y poder by Andrés Barba( Book )

6 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in Spanish and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cada vez que un hombre abre la boca para reír está devorando a otro hombre, pero tal vez, antes de echarnos las manos a la cabeza, a las armas o al código penal, no sea mala idea detenerse a reflexionar un segundo sobre lo que ya hemos aprendido riéndonos de los demás o enfrentándonos a sus risas. ¿Quién decide de qué y hasta dónde podemos reír? ¿Por qué tenemos tanto miedo a la risa de los otros? ¿De qué nos reímos cuando nos reímos de alguien? Miles de años de historia de las ideas no han bastado para dar una respuesta concluyente a esas sencillas preguntas, pero eso no significa que la humanidad no haya hecho ya un gran aprendizaje. Este breve ensayo sobre la risa caníbal trata precisamente de eso: del día en que Hitler se enfrentó a la sátira de Chaplin, de la mirada de Platón sobre el díscolo Diógenes, del momento en que la puritana sociedad estadounidense tuvo que dialogar con una comedia porno -Garganta profunda-, del sonido del punk burlándose de todas las reinas o del momento en que el radicalismo islámico decidió contestar con balas a un puñado de caricaturas
