Alberto Vzquez-Figueroa, the acclaimed popular novelist, has given us in Ebano a novel in his own tremendously realistic and almost cinematographic style. This time his novel is set in Africa, the main characters being a young European lecturer and his wife, an ebullient and idealistic black African who tries to bring to the attention of the Western world the miserable plight of her home country. While on honeymoon in Africa, she is abducted during one of her husband’s absences. So begins the young man’s odyssey to find his wife who, suffering great hardship, is taken to Arabia —to be sold to a sheik for a large sum of money.

La esclavitud como telón de fondo para una novela que nos hace cuestionarnos nuestras raíces A partir de la última travesía de un barco inglés con un cargamento de esclavos africanos, comienza esta apasionante novela cuya culminación coincide con los primeros años de la Independencia de Chile y la libertad de vientre que se declara. Una obra de sentimientos y de reconstrucción de un pasado. Ricardo Gattini reedita esta novela histórica que sintoniza hoy, más que nunca, con la llegada de inmigrantes a tierras chilenas y la forma en que los integramos como sociedad. La crítica ha dicho... "Incita a conocer las formas en que se desplegó la esclavitud negra y llama a indagar en los modos con que se instaló en Chile, lo que hemos borroneado de las páginas de la historia oficial." Sonia Montecinos

Questo libro non parla dell'Africa, ma di alcune persone che vi abitano e che vi ho incontrato, del tempo che abbiamo trascorso insieme. L'Africa è un continente troppo grande per poterlo descrivere. E' un oceano, un pianeta a sé stante, un cosmo vario e ricchissimo. E' solo per semplificare e per pura comodità che lo chiamano Africa. A parte la sua denominazione geografica, in realtà l'Africa non esiste. La narrazione, etica e ammaliante, di un grande reporter che ha il coraggio di vivere il suo mestiere come nomadismo e redenzione

Quien muchos consideran el mejor reportero del siglo se sumerge en el continente africano, rehuyendo lugares comunes y estereotipos. Vive en las casas repletas de cucarachas de los más pobres, enferma de malaria cerebral, corre peligro de muerte a manos de un guerrillero& . pero pese a todo no pierde su mirada lúcida y su voz de gran narrador para adentrar al lector en la compleja realidad de África, con las guerras, miseria e injusticia que atraviesan su historia y lastran su presente. Posiblemente la obra cumbre del autor, ganadora del Premio Viareggio, entre otros galardones.

For anyone who dreams of dragon riding... Jace, a high-wire acrobat in a traveling circus, thought he knew the thrill of adventure. But when he meets Belen, a strange girl with no memory of her past, he soon discovers how much more adventure--and danger--awaits him. Not long after Belen joins the circus, a wizard arrives and stops the show--not by magic, but by accusation. Belen is not human, he says: she is a shapeshifting dragon, who destroyed a nearby town. As Jace and Belen set off in a race against time to clear Belen's name and recover her memory, mysterious forces conspire to throw them off track. Can Jace learn to fly through the air with the greatest of ease--on the back of a dragon--before time runs out? In the next installment of R.D. Henham's series inspired by The New York Times best-seller A Practical Guide to Dragons, a new hero polishes the tarnished reputation of a noble silver dragon. From the Hardcover edition.

A moving portrait of Africa from Poland's most celebrated foreign correspondent - a masterpiece from a modern master. Famous for being in the wrong places at just the right times, Ryszard Kapuscinski arrived in Africa in 1957, at the beginning of the end of colonial rule - the "sometimes dramatic and painful, sometimes enjoyable and jubilant" rebirth of a continent. The Shadow of the Sun sums up the author's experiences ("the record of a 40-year marriage") in this place that became the central obsession of his remarkable career. From the hopeful years of independence through the bloody disintegration of places like Nigeria, Rwanda and Angola, Kapuscinski recounts great social and political changes through the prism of the ordinary African. He examines the rough-and-ready physical world and identifies the true geography of Africa: a little-understood spiritual universe, an African way of being. He looks also at Africa in the wake of two epoch-making changes: the arrival of AIDS and the definitive departure of the white man. Kapuscinski's rare humanity invests his subjects with a grandeur and a dignity unmatched by any other writer on the Third World, and his unique ability to discern the universal in the particular has never been more powerfully displayed than in this work. From the Trade Paperback edition.
