The foreign correspondent : a novel by Alan Furst( Book )

4 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in Spanish and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paris, a winter night in 1938: a murder/suicide at a discreet lovers' hotel. But this is no romantic tragedy--it is the work of the OVRA, Mussolini's fascist secret police, and is meant to eliminate the editor of Liberazione, a clandestine émigré newspaper. Carlo Weisz, a foreign correspondent with the Reuters bureau, becomes the new editor. Weisz is, at that moment, in Spain, reporting on the last campaign of the Spanish civil war. But as soon as he returns to Paris, he is pursued by the French Sûreté, by agents of the OVRA, and by officers of the British Secret Intelligence Service. In the desperate politics of Europe on the edge of war, a foreign correspondent is a pawn, worth surveillance, or blackmail, or murder

En un lugar de África narra la odisea de Walter, Jettel y Regina, quienes en 1938 abandonan Breslau rumbo a África oriental. A pesar de establecer allí un nuevo hogar, tras largos años y muchos intentos, no siempre fáciles, de adaptarse a un nuevo continente, a sus gentes y a sus formas de vida, deciden volver a su país de origen. Stefanie Zweig cuenta la historia de la pequeña Regina, que llega a África siendo todavía una niña y que no tardará en sucumbir a la magia de ese continente. Adora los olores y los colores, la naturaleza, los animales y a las personas, que pronto se convertirán en sus amigos. Sin embargo, al terminar la guerra, su padre decide regresar a Alemania y se ve obligada a dejar atrás el páis que se ha convertido ya en su segunda patria. En un lugar de África es la historia tierna y entrañable de una familia que permanece unida en las circunstancias más adversas, en cuyas páginas se respira el profundo amor de la autora por el continente africano. Esta novela es un extraordinario homenaje a Kenia, un país fascinante, una especie de Memorias de África escritas por una autora que se confiesa enamorada incondicional de ese continente

Hotel Honolulu by Paul Theroux( Book )

3 editions published in 2002 in Spanish and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Welcome to the Hotel Honolulu, a down-at-the-heels tourist place on a back street two blocks from the beach at Waikiki, where middle America stays and dreams." "Like the Canterbury pilgrims, every guest in this eighty-room hotel has come in search of something - sun, love, happiness, un-namable longing - and everyone has a story. Honeymooners, vacationers, wanderers, mythomaniacs, soldiers, and families all land at the Hotel Honolulu. But the hotel is as suited to being a crime scene as a love nest. Fortunately, our keen-eyed narrator, a writer down on his luck, is there to relate all the comings and goings. He's lost money, friends, house, and family, and he has no experience running a hotel. But all that doesn't stop Buddy, the boozy owner of the place - the last of a dying breed - from signing him on as manager. It isn't long before the hotel expands to encompass the narrator's whole universe. His original plan of escape from a life of the mind becomes something altogether different: a way to return to the world he left, the world of imagined life."--Jacket
