Un clásico de la literatura del siglo XX. «Dispara a todos los grajos que quieras, si puedes acertarles, pero recuerda que es pecado matar a un ruiseñor.» Este es el consejo que da a sus hijos un abogado que está defendiendo al verdadero ruiseñor del clásico de Harper Lee: un hombre de color acusado de violar a una joven blanca. Desde la mirada de Jem y Scout Finch, Harper Lee explora con humor y una honestidad insobornable la irracional actitud que en cuestiones de raza y clase social tenían los adultos del Sur profundo de los años treinta. Harper Lee está de plena actualidad por el redescubrimiento de la novela original, rechazada por sus editores en su momento y una de cuyas tramas secundarias es la que dio origen a la novela Matar a un ruiseñor y a las películas homónima ganadora de varios Oscar. Jean Louise Finch evoca una época de su infancia en Alabama, cuando su padre, Atticus, decidió defender ante los tribunales a un hombre negro acusado de violar a una mujer blanca. Novela de iniciación, Matar a un ruiseñor muestra una comunidad, la del sur de Estados Unidos durante la década de 1930, dominada por los prejuicios raciales, la desconfianza hacia lo diferente, la rigidez de los vínculos familiares y vecinales, así como por un sistema judicial sin apenas garantías para la población de color. Reseña: «Una ópera prima de tan insólita calidad que, sin duda, hará que muchos lectores quieran leerla despacio para disfrutar más plenamente su sencilla excelencia [...]. Una novela de capital importancia para la historia contemporánea de la nación.» Chicago Tribune

John Katzenbach’s fourth novel, now back in print and with a new preface from the author, is brilliantly suspenseful, filled with the remarkable psychological insight for which Katzenbach has become revered. When burnt-out reporter Matt Cowart receives a letter from a death row inmate pleading his innocence, he is tempted to dismiss it out of hand. Sure, they’re all innocent. But as the Miami newspaperman digs into the case of Robert Earl Ferguson, an African American given the death penalty for the brutal slaying of a white girl, he begins to believe that Ferguson is the real victim of hate and prejudice. And if he doesn’t act, the wrong man is going to be executed. In the months that follow, Cowart’s investigative articles not only set Ferguson free, but make Cowart a celebrity and win him a Pulitzer Prize—and set in motion a new chain of unimaginable horror. For there is a monster out there, and he is not through with killing. Chillingly complex, Just Cause is a powerhouse story about confronting our worst fears, in society, and in ourselves.

A young girl flees Nazi-occupied Germany with her family and best friend, only to discover that the overseas refuge they had been promised is an illusion in this “powerful and affecting” (Kirkus Reviews) debut novel, perfect for fans of The Nightingale, All the Light We Cannot See, and Schindler’s List. Before everything changed, young Hannah Rosenthal lived a charmed life. But now, in 1939, the streets of Berlin are draped with red, white, and black flags; her family’s fine possessions are hauled away; and they are no longer welcome in the places that once felt like home. Hannah and her best friend, Leo Martin, make a pact: whatever the future has in store for them, they’ll meet it together. Hope appears in the form of the S.S. St. Louis, a transatlantic liner offering Jews safe passage out of Germany. After a frantic search to obtain visas, the Rosenthals and the Martins depart on the luxurious ship bound for Havana. Life on board the St. Louis is like a surreal holiday for the refugees, with masquerade balls, exquisite meals, and polite, respectful service. But soon ominous rumors from Cuba undermine the passengers’ fragile sense of safety. From one day to the next, impossible choices are offered, unthinkable sacrifices are made, and the ship that once was their salvation seems likely to become their doom. Seven decades later in New York City, on her twelfth birthday, Anna Rosen receives a strange package from an unknown relative in Cuba, her great-aunt Hannah. Its contents will inspire Anna and her mother to travel to Havana to learn the truth about their family’s mysterious and tragic past, a quest that will help Anna understand her place and her purpose in the world. The German Girl sweeps from Berlin at the brink of the Second World War to Cuba on the cusp of revolution, to New York in the wake of September 11, before reaching its deeply moving conclusion in the tumult of present-day Havana. Based on a true story, this masterful novel gives voice to the joys and sorrows of generations of exiles, forever seeking a place called home.
