A confederacy of dunces by John Kennedy Toole( Book )

34 editions published between 1982 and 2015 in Spanish and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"El protagonista de esta novela es uno de los personajes más memorables de la literatura norteamericana: Ignatius Reilly -una mezcla de Oliver Hardy delirante, Don Quijote adiposo y santo Tomás de Aquino perverso, reunidos en una persona-, que a los treinta años aún vive con su estrafalaria madre, ocupado en escribir una extensa y demoledora denuncia contra nuestro siglo, tan carente de teología y geometría como de decencia y buen gusto; un alegato desquiciado contra una sociedad desquiciada. Por una inesperada necesidad de dinero, se ve catapultado en la fiebre de la existencia contemporánea, fiebre a la que Ignatius añadirá unos cuantos grados más. La conjura de los necios se hizo acreedora al Premio Pulitzer, y en Francia fue galardonada el año de su publicación como la mejor novela en lengua extranjera"--

Different seasons by Stephen King( Book )

23 editions published between 1983 and 2005 in Spanish and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En los dos relatos que componen esta obra, Stephen King nos muestra su maestría en un terreno algo alejado del género de terror, que le ha valido el reconocimiento general por parte de la crítica y del público. "El otoño de la inocencia" es el lema del primer relato que da título al volumen: "El cuerpo". En un pueblecito del estado de Maine, cuantro chicos de doce a trece años se enteran por casualidad de que Ray Brower (un muchacho de su misma edad al que se busca desde hace días) está muerto en el bosque. Todas las peripecias hasta dar con él y su enfrentamiento con la muerte y, en otro plano, con la pandilla de los mayores que reivindican el derecho al "descubrimiento", se convierten para los cuatro adolescentes en un pronlongado y doloroso rito de iniciación. Los elementos que componen el segundo relato de esta obra son un extraño club de la ciudad de Nueva York, un misterioso mayordomo-maestro de ceremonias, el mes de diciembre (nieve, frío, viento, noche) y unos socios que suelen dedicarse a contar historias. Uno de los personajes más asiduos del club, el anciano doctor McCarron, narrará el "cuento de invierno" que lleva el título de "El método de respiración": la historia de una joven soltera embarazada a la que él mismo atendió en su gestación y "alumbramiento", cuya tenacidad la llevó a luchar contra viento y marea con tal de tener a su hijo y a disponerse a tenerlo más allá de la vida y de la muerte
