Los animales de la granja de los Jones se sublevan contra los due�os humanos y los vencen. Pero la rebeli�n fracasar� al surgir entre ellos rivalidades y envidias, y al aliarse algunos con los amos que derrocaron, traicionando su propia identidad y los intereses de su clase. Aunque Rebeli�n en la granja fue concebida como una despiadada s�tira del estalinismo, el car�cter abierto y universal de su mensaje hacen de este libro un extraordinario an�lisis de la corrupci�n que engendra el poder, una furibunda diatriba contra el totalitarismo de cualquier especie y un l�cido examen de los desplazamientos y manipulaciones que sufre la verdad hist�rica en los momentos de transformaci�n pol�tica. Cr�nica de una revoluci�n traicionada, de la gradual tergiversaci�n de un ideal, de c�mo esterilizar a�os de lucha y sacrificio, Rebeli�n en la granja es un examen de conciencia y una inflamada requisitoria que encuentre bell�sima expresi�n literaria en la novela de un hombre que hizo del compromiso y de la denuncia de la injusticia la norma de su existencia.

This is the first, book-length study of the six travel narratives published by the 1989 winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature. Preliminary chapters focus on technical and thematic aspects of travel-writing, and on the author's approach to the genre. Cela's travel works, which appeared between 1948 and 1986, are examined in turn, with a focus on the construction of the narratives and also on the themes that are developed in each of them. There is an assessment of the author's treatment of topographical, cultural, historical, and social material in his accounts of the journeys he made through various areas and regions of Spain, as well as a consideration of the way in which these narratives reflect changes taking place in Spain during the Franco regime and in the decade following the dictator's death. David Henn teaches modern Spanish fiction, drama, and travel literature at University College London.

At seventy-five, Terry and Monica Darlington had done everything they could think of doing, including starting a business and becoming athletes and running a literary society.Lately they had become boating adventurers and Terry a bestselling writer. But in their Midlands canal town in November, life was looking dull and short on surprises. Then their famous canal boat was destroyed by fire. Within a few days they had bought a new one and soon headed north in the Phyllis May 2 – to Liverpool, Lancaster, the Pennines and Wigan Pier. Terry recorded the journey, and alongside it the story of his life and his marriage and his dog Jim, with his broken ear like a flat cap, and Monica’s dog Jess, known with heartbreaking reason as the Flying Catastrophe. Funny, affecting and beautifully told, this is a story that brims with incident and excitement, and is full of the famous and fascinating people the Darlingtons have met - a story of an adventurous life well lived.

The Long Road to Heaven", the annual pilgrimage to the Galician city of Santiago de Compostela has taken place for over a thousand years. In the great cathedral of Santiago are said to lie the bones of St. James of the Great, cousin to Christ, an original disciple and later "resurrected" as the legendary slayer of the Moors. From the Middle Ages onwards, this most evocative of Christian shrines has attracted pilgrims to the Spanish city from all over Europe and further afield. A network of routes, lined with statues and other symbols, leads to Santiago, but the most celebrated is that from Paris, across the Pyrenees and through the arid uplands of northern Spain.
