A finales del siglo XVIII, la joven criolla Antonia de Salis vive con su prima Teresa en Rusia. Allí reciben la visita de un fascinante militar hispanoamericano, Francisco de Miranda, precursor de la independencia que agita a las colonias, que está de visita en Rusia para tejer una alianza con Potemkin. Antonia cae seducida ante un personaje tan idealista como ardiente, con fama de donjuán y magnífico contador de historias ante las damas. Tanto que, tras algunos encuentros furtivos, decide seguirlo hasta San Petersburgo, donde Francisco de Miranda es perseguido, sin saberlo, por un diplomático español empeñado en capturarlo. Treinta años después, en la cárcel de La Carraca en Cádiz (los hechos están rigurosamente documentados), un general Miranda enfermo y vencido recibe las visitas y los cuidados de una enigmática mujer que tiene muy presentes las aventuras de Crimea y de San Petersburgo

Celia and Fernando decide to embark on a Caribbean cruise in an attempt to regain an intimacy decimated by the marriage routine.

In the pleasant stage of the cruise, Celia and Fernando discover that the same memories, in contact with the natural sensuality of the environment, could transform their existences in an unexpected way

Los protagonistas de todos los relatos que componen este volumen esperan algo. Un accidente, un hecho azaroso. Al contrario que esta obra, donde nada, absolutamente nada, queda al azar. Alternando páginas inquietantes e hilarantes, El elefante desaparece es una prueba más de la capacidad de Murakami para cruzar la frontera entre lo cotidiano más realista y lo fantástico, transformando así la trivialidad de nuestras vidas. Una maravillosa muestra del talento narrativo de Murakami que nos abre las puertas a otras realidades y nos lleva de la mano a mundos fantásticos

Un día, su marido se juega a Frasquita en una apuesta ... y pierde. Eso la obliga a cometer un adulterio y a marcharse del pueblo con sus hijos y huir a través de Andalucía, una región sumida hacia finales del siglo XIX en revueltas campesinas, en las que se verán trágicamente implicados.

In the baking heat of the Havana summer Conde investigates, moving through a Cuban reality where nothing is what is seems.

Immortality by Milan Kundera( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in Spanish and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A partir del gesto encantador de una mujer de cierta edad, el escritor crea el personaje de Agnes, alrededor de la cual apareceran su hermana Laura, su marido Paul, y todo nuestro mundo contemporaneo en el que se rinde culto a la tecnología y la imagen. Pero ¿si el hombre no fuera sino su imagen?, pregunta otro personaje, Rubens, quien comprueba finalmente que de la más excitante de sus amantes solo le quedan dos o tres fotografías mentales. Esta novela transforma todos los aspectos del mundo moderno en cuestiones metafísicas. Su forma es polifonica: las aventuras de los personajes imaginarios se mezclan con la historia de dos candidatos a la inmortalidad, Goethe y Bettina von Armin; la reflexión sobre el nacimiento del homo senti-mentalis en la historia de Europa alterna con las peripecias parisienses del singular profesor Avenarius, para quien el mundo de hoy no sirve sino como objeto de juego
Mundo del fin del mundo by Luis Sepúlveda( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in Spanish and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A teenager, fascinated by reading Moby Dick, takes advantage of the summer holidays to board a whaling ship in the southern reaches of the Americas, the land where the world ends. Many years later, as an adult, active journalist and member of the environmental movements, he has the chance to return to these distant places for a different but perhaps equally romantic reason: the marine life inhabiting the icy and unpolluted waters of this end of the world is being destroyed by the criminal act of pirate ships. Starting from a fictional exercise in the evocation of youthful memory, redolent of adventure and wonderment ... exposes the dark international interests that support the illegal hunting of protected species, those who practice it and those who courageously fight, turning the narrative into a demand for saving the life of the sea."--Cataloger's translation of cover
