The plot against America by Philip Roth( Book )

8 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in Spanish and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cuando Charles A. Lindbergh voló en 1927 desde Nueva York hasta Paris convirtiéndose en el primer aviador americano que cruzaba el Atlántico, el novelista Philip Roth aprovecha esta hazaña para imaginar qué hubiera pasado si Lindbergh hubiera llegado a convertirse en el Presidente de Estados Unidos, derrotando a Franklin Roosevelt en las elecciones de 1940. Lindbergh en esta novela llega a un trato con Hitler, como buen antisemita, de hecho la realidad es que en 1938 este héroe se trasladó a vivir a Alemania y se convirtió en líder del controvertido movimiento aislacionista americano y aceptó una condecoración del Führer. En 1941 el presidente Roosevelt criticó su postura neutralista ante la Segunda guerra Mundial y muchos de sus compatriotas lo tacharon de antisemita. Philip Roth convierte esa historia en ficción, imaginando qué hubiera pasado si este héroe hubiera gobernado América y habla de las siniestras consecuencias para miles de familias judías americanas

The dying animal by Philip Roth( Book )

9 editions published between 2002 and 2015 in Spanish and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"David Kepesh is white-haired and over sixty, an eminent TV culture critic and star lecturer at a New York college, when he meets Consuela Castillo, a decorous, well-mannered student of twenty-four, the daughter of wealthy Cuban exiles, who promptly puts his life into erotic disorder." "Since the sexual revolution of the 1960s, when he left his wife and child, Kepesh has experimented with living what he calls an "emancipated manhood," beyond the reach of family or a mate. Over the years he has refined that exuberant decade of protest and license into an orderly life in which he is both unimpeded in the world of eros and studiously devoted to his aesthetic pursuits. But the youth and beauty of Consuela, "a masterpiece of volupte," undo him completely, and a maddening sexual possessiveness tranports him to the depths of deforming jealousy. The carefree erotic adventure evolves, over eight years, into a story of grim loss."--Jacket
The sound of waves by Yukio Mishima( Book )

12 editions published between 2003 and 2016 in Spanish and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En una minúscula isla japonesa septentrional, dorada por el sol, sobrevive una comunidad de pesacadores apartada de la civilización. Se percibe por doquier el olorsalobre del mar, la fragancia de las cuerdas de cáñamo, el humo invisible de las hogeras y el rumor de un oleaje azul intenso que todo lo circunda. Los hombres trabajan de sol a sol en todo tipo de actividades relacionadas con la pesca. Las mujeres, más capacitadas para resistir los embates de las olas, se sumergen medio desnudas para recoger ostras y todo tipo de mariscos. En este marco de belleza natural, pero a la vez de supervivencia y costumbres estrictas, surge el amor entre una de estas jóvenes y un robusto pescador que siente un profundo respeto por el dios del mar. Juntos, tal que unos Dafnis y Cloe del Lejano Oriente, irán descubriendo los misterios apasionados del amor. Con sencillez, delicadeza y un lirismo contenido, Mishima construye en El rumor del oleaje una obra maestra guiado por su admiración hacia la tradición bucólica de la Grecia clásica que era capaz de establecer una perfecta coincidencia entre la vida humana y la misteriosa belleza de la naturaleza. Mishima narra el nacimiento y consumación del idilio entre dos adolescentes ingenuos y apacionados, su iniciación y educación erótica en un paisaje arcádio y en un ambiente a la vez hostil. El rumor del oleaje está considerada como una de las más grandes y bellas historias de amor universales, narrada por uno de los mejores y míticos escritos que ha dado la literatura japonesa

7 editions published between 1996 and 2018 in Spanish and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Daniel Jonah Goldhagen has revisited a question that history has come to treat as settled, and his researchers have led him to the inescapable conclusion that none of the established answers holds true. That question is: "How could the Holocaust happen?" His own response is a new exploration of those who carried out the Holocaust and of German society and its ingrained anti-semitism - and it demands a fundamental revision of our thinking about the years 1933-1945

Nemesis by Philip Roth( Book )

11 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in Spanish and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"¿Qué tipo de decisiones determinan fatalmente una vida? ¿Cómo el individuo resiste la arremetida de las circunstancias? Estos son algunos de los aciagos interrogantes que animan Las némesis, el cuarteto de novelas cortas temáticamente relacionadas que publicamos por primera vez en España en un solo volumen. Elegía (2006) es una historia íntima y universal que trata sobre la lucha crónica de un hombre contra la muerte. Indignación (2008) es el extraordinario relato sobre un joven que se opone al conformismo de la América de la era McCarthy y el temor atroz de su padre ante los peligros del mundo. En La humillación (2009), el consagrado actor Simon Axler se embarca en una relación aberrante y arriesgada, en un desesperado intento por recuperar la magia y el talento perdidos. Y en Nemésis (2010), Roth nos ofrece un retrato fiel de las emociones--el miedo, la cólera, el desconcierto, el sufrimiento y el dolor-- que afloran a raíz de una epidemia de polio que asola la comunidad de Newark durante el verano de 1944. En estas cuatro novelas sobre el miedo y la mortalidad, Philip Roth se confirma como uno de los grandes escritores de este siglo, merecedor, entre otras distinciones, de los premios Pulitzer y Príncipe de Asturias de las Letras 2012."--

In America : a novel by Susan Sontag( Book )

6 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in Spanish and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Volcano Lover, Susan Sontag's bestselling 1992 novel, retold the love story of Lady Emma Hamilton and Lord Nelson with consummate power. In her enthralling new novel-once again based on a real story-Sontag shows us our own country on the cusp of modernity. In 1876 a group of Poles led by Maryna Zalewska, Poland's greatest actress, travel to California to found a "utopian" commune. Maryna, who has renounced her career, is accompanied by her small son and husband; in her entourage is a rising young writer who is in love with her. The novel portrays a West that is still largely empty, where white settlers confront native Californians and Asian coolies. The image of America, and of California-as fantasy, as escape, as radical simplification-constantly meets a more complex reality. The commune fails and most of the emigres go home, but Maryna stays and triumphs on the American stage. In America is a big, juicy, surprising book-about a woman's search for self-transformation, about the fate of idealism, about the world of the theater-that will captivate its readers from the first page. It is Sontag's most delicious, most brilliant achievement."--Publisher's description
