"Excellent, highly colloquial translation of Arráncame la vida (see HLAS 48:5193), set in post-revolutionary Mexico. Peden has created a sparkling, irreverent Catalina, Mastretta's first-person protagonist who narrates her coming of age through a marriage to a retired general much older than herself. No background information. For historical introduction, see Ann Wright's translation of this novel, Mexican bolero (HLAS 54:5031)"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58

"New York is sweltering in the summer heat, and Harlem is close to the boiling point. To Coffin Ed Johnson and Grave Digger Jones, at times it seems as if the whole world has gone mad. Trying, as always, to keep some kind of peace, their legendary nickel-plated Colts very much in evidence, Coffin Ed and Grave Digger find themselves pursuing two completely different cases through a maze of knifings, beatings, and riots that threaten to tear Harlem apart."--Back cover

Senza perdere la tenerezza : vita e morte di Ernesto Che Guevara by Paco Ignacio Taibo( Book )

3 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in Italian and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I giovani lo ostentano sulle magliette come simbolo di lotta e utopia. Per i meno giovani rappresenta l'araldo dell'antimperialismo e della rivoluzione latinoamericana. Nella storia del Novecento, nessuno più di Ernesto Che Guevara ha saputo incarnare l'idea di giustizia sociale e le speranze di riscatto. E nessuno più di Paco Ignacio Taibo II ha saputo raccontare la sua storia. Il Saggiatore ripropone Senza perdere la tenerezza, la biografia del Che più letta e apprezzata nel mondo, frutto di un lavoro di ricerca quasi ossessivo, che ha attinto a tutte le pubblicazioni più recenti, ai documenti declassificati della Cia, a lettere, poesie, diari, appunti del Che rimasti inediti per decenni, alle testimonianze di compagni e nemici, alle immagini più intime e rare. Con la sua abilità di romanziere, in equilibrio tra obiettività e partecipazione, Taibo restituisce in tutte le sue sfumature una vita da epopea: dalla giovinezza nomade e ribelle alle imprese della rivoluzione castrista, dall'esperienza di governo in una Cuba assediata dagli Stati Uniti alla tragica fine sui monti della Bolivia. Oltre l'icona, il Che è svelato con la sua tenacia e il suo idealismo, le idiosincrasie, le letture preferite, le passioni sportive, gli accessi d'asma, i suoi amori e i suoi innamoramenti intellettuali: Marx, Rosa Luxemburg, Lenin, Trockij e Mao, ma anche Sarmiento, Martí, Bolívar; Sartre, Neruda, Kipling, Calvino. Una storia di gesta eroiche e di piccoli gesti quotidiani. La storia di un mito e il ritratto di un uomo, vagabondo, temerario e romantico, un uomo convinto che <<bisogna essere duri senza perdere la tenerezza>>

In a blend of reality and fantasy, this novel tells the story of a young soldier who one day lays down his rifle and sets off on a quixotic journey from the jungles of Indochina to the streets of Paris.

Lt. Jacqueline "Jack" Daniels of the Chicago Police Department is back, and once again she's up to her Armani in murder. Someone is sending Jack snuff videos.

With her stalwart partner Herb hospitalized and unable to help, Jack follows a trail of death throughout the Midwest, on a collision course with the smartest and deadliest adversary she has ever known. During the chase, Jack jeopardizes her career, her love life, and the lives of her closest friends.
