Demasiada felicidad : relatos by Alice Munro( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in Spanish and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ten new short stories from the author tackle a variety of themes, such as love, loss, and redemption. In the first story a young wife and mother receives release from the unbearable pain of losing her three children from a most surprising source. In another, a young woman, in the aftermath of an unusual and humiliating seduction, reacts in a clever if less-than-admirable fashion. Other stories uncover the "deep-holes" in a marriage, the unsuspected cruelty of children, and how a boy's disfigured face provides both the good things in his life and the bad. And in the long title story, we accompany Sophia Kovalevsky, a late-nineteenth-century Russian é́migré and mathematician, on a winter journey that takes her from the Riviera, where she visits her lover, to Paris, Germany, and, Denmark, where she has a fateful meeting with a local doctor, and finally to Sweden, where she teaches at the only university in Europe willing to employ a female mathematician. Here the author renders complex, difficult events and emotions into stories that shed light on the unpredictable ways in which men and women accommodate and often transcend what happens in their lives
El poder de la intención by Wayne W Dyer( Book )

13 editions published between 2005 and 2016 in Spanish and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Durante años, el doctor Dyer ha investigado la intención como una fuerza en el universo que nos permite llevar a cabo el acto de crear; por eso, a través de ella, podemos lograr que nuestra existencia llegue a ser todo lo plena y feliz que deseamos. Es decir, la intención no como algo interno a nosotros que nos impulsa a hacer, sino como una energía de la que, sin saberlo, participamos. Todos formamos parte del poder invisible de la intención; conociéndolo y usándolo de forma adecuada nos convertimos en dueños de las transformaciones que queramos imprimir a nuestras vidas. A través de historias reales y aleccionadores ejemplos aprenderemos los principios de la intención y cómo conectar esta fuerza universal con la fuente de creatividad que ya poseemos
El progreso del amor by Alice Munro( Book )

11 editions published between 1991 and 2014 in Spanish and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Se podría concebir El progreso del amor como unas crónicas de nuestro tiempo que, con gran sensibilidad y empatía, nos descubren los aspectos más intrínsecos de la vida cotidiana; toda una revelación de nosotros mismos -los lectores-, nuestras elecciones y nuestras experiencias. En su conjunto, son un tratado del amor, formado por historias íntimas y deslumbrantes que exploran sus distintas facetas--filial, platónico, sexual, parental e imaginario--en las vidas de personajes aparentemente ordinarios. Munro nos habla sobre cómo puede engañarnos la memoria y cómo nuestra percepción puede llegar a distorsionar la realidad. De esta forma empieza a entretejer los once relatos sobre el amor, la memoria y la vida que constituyen este volumen

The enigma of arrival : a novel by V. S Naipaul( Book )

6 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in Spanish and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of a writer's singular journey'from one place to another, from the British colony of Trinidad to the ancient countryside of England, and from one state of mind to another'this is perhaps Naipaul's most autobiographical work. Yet it is also woven through with remarkable invention to make it a rich and complex novel. From the Trade Paperback edition
Una zona de oscuridad : el descubrimiento de la India by V. S Naipaul( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in Spanish and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Una zona de oscuridad es un clásico fundamental de la literatura de viajes, probablemente el libro más elegante y apasionado que se haya escrito sobre la India. Una zona de oscuridad es el primer libro del premio Nobel V.S. Naipaul sobre la tierra de sus antepasados, fruto de su primer viaje al subcontinente indio en 1964. Desde el caos de Bombay a la belleza inmarcesible de Cachemira, de una sagrada cueva helada en el Himalaya a un templo abandonado en Madrás, Naipaul descubre una asombrosa variedad de tipos humanos, modestos funcionarios públicos y criados arrogantes; un sinuoso santón y un fascinado estadounidense en busca de la fe. Naipaul también expone su reacción personal y distinta al paralizante sistema de castas, a la aparentemente serena aceptación de la pobreza y la miseria, y el conflicto entre el deseo de autodeterminación y la nostalgia por la dominación británica."
