Una épica moderna, una historia de amor inolvidable situada en el mapa más underground, político, sucio y conflictivo de la ciudad de Estambul. Una novela destinada a convertirse en uno de los mayores logros del Premio Nobel Orhan Pamuk. Una sensación extraña, la novela más reciente de Orhan Pamuk, arranca con el anuncio de que lo que vamos a leer es, por un lado el relato de la vida, las aventuras y los sueños del vendedor callejero Mevlut Karatas, y por el otro un retrato de la ciudad de Estambul entre 1969 y 2012 visto a través de los ojos de numerosas personas. Desde que a los doce años abandonara la aldea de Anatolia donde nació, Mevlut Karatas no hace más que fantasear sobre su vida. Instalado en Estambul, desde el primer momento se siente cautivado por la ciudad vieja, sometida a constantes transformaciones, y por la nueva metrópoli que se abre paso rápidamente en su lugar. Y es allí, en «el centro del mundo», donde le veremos crecer, enamorarse y ganarse la vida como vendedor callejero de boza, una bebida tradicional turca. Pasa el tiempo y él sueña con prosperar, pero el azar parece conspirar en su contra. Y mientras todos a su alrededor logran hacer fortuna, él sigue deambulando de noche por los callejones de la ciudad, subsistiendo a base de míseros trabajillos que no conducen a nada y con esa sensación extraña que le hace sentirse diferente a los demás. Hará falta un nuevo giro del destino para que Melvut comprenda finalmente qué es lo que lleva toda la vida anhelando. La crítica ha dicho... «A falta de una palabra mejor diremos que Pamuk despliega la cualidad más rara y preciosa de un novelista: la sabiduría. [...]Pamuk muestra un talento que, con independencia de la técnica, el tono o el tema que elija, anima como una corriente eléctrica todos sus libros: su conocimiento de los pequeños deseos, envidias, irritaciones, esperanzas, deseos, arreglos, testarudeces y autoengaños que articulan la existencia cotidiana.» Gonzalo Torné, Letras Libres «Pamuk nos guía por un relato que, recorriendo varias décadas de pérdida, es, a su vez, un retrato casi antropológico de la obsesión, la clase social y las ideas sobre Oriente y Occidente.» The New York Times «Una de sus más cautivadoras novelas. Pamuk hace por Estambul lo que Joyce hizo por Dublín.» Adam Kirsch, The Washington Post «Pamuk reveló un gran talento narrativo desde el primer momento y su visión de Turquía, lejos de estereotipos, nos muestra la esencia de un país que ha forjado su identidad combinando tradición y modernidad.» El Cultural «Borges, Eco o Italo Calvino son el punto de referencia de este autor que bebe de las aguas hipnóticas y duales de una ciudad permanentemente escorada entre dos orillas, Oriente y Occidente.» ABC Cultura

THE BOOK THAT INSPIRED TOM FORD'S NEW FILM, NOCTURNAL ANIMALS, STARRING JAKE GYLLENHAAL AND AMY ADAMS "A SUPERB AND THRILLING NOVEL...EXTRAORDINARY." -- Ian McEwan "COMPELLING...MESMERIZING...ABSOLUTELY IRRESISTIBLE."--New York Times "A PERFECT LITERARY PUZZLE, AN IRRESISTIBLE TALE ABOUT MARRIAGE AND MURDER, BOTH THRILLING AND MOVING."--Scott Turow "A PAGE-TURNER OF A LITERARY THRILLER."--Sara Waters "BEAUTIFULLY WRITTEN, PERFECTLY PACED, IMPRESSIVELY CLEVER, AND ULTIMATELY SHOCKING IN A WAY YOU NEVER SEE COMING."--Nelson DeMille "ABSOLUTE TERRIFYING, BEAUTIFUL, AND APPALLING. PARTS OF IT SHOCKED ME, AND I AM NOT EASILY SHOCKED."--Ruth Rendell Fifteen years ago, Susan Morrow left her first husband, Edward Sheffield, an unpublished writer. Now, she's enduring middle class suburbia as a doctor's wife, when out of the blue she receives a package containing the manuscript of her ex-husband's first novel. He writes asking her to read the book; she was always his best critic, he says. As Susan reads, she is drawn into the fictional life of Tony Hastings, a math professor driving his family to their summer house in Maine. And as we read with her, we too become lost in Sheffield's thriller. As the Hastings' ordinary, civilized lives are disastrously, violently sent off course, Susan is plunged back into the past, forced to confront the darkness that inhabits her, and driven to name the fear that gnaws at her future and will change her life. TONY AND SUSAN is a dazzling, eerie, riveting novel about fear and regret, blood and revenge, marriage and creativity. It is simply one of a kind.

A shimmering evocation, by turns intimate and panoramic, of one of the world’s great cities, by its foremost writer. Orhan Pamuk was born in Istanbul and still lives in the family apartment building where his mother first held him in her arms. His portrait of his city is thus also a self-portrait, refracted by memory and the melancholy–or hüzün– that all Istanbullus share: the sadness that comes of living amid the ruins of a lost empire.With cinematic fluidity, Pamuk moves from his glamorous, unhappy parents to the gorgeous, decrepit mansions overlooking the Bosphorus; from the dawning of his self-consciousness to the writers and painters–both Turkish and foreign–who would shape his consciousness of his city. Like Joyce’s Dublin and Borges’ Buenos Aires, Pamuk’s Istanbul is a triumphant encounter of place and sensibility, beautifully written and immensely moving.

Mariano Siskind’s groundbreaking debut book redefines the scope of world literature, particularly regarding the place of Latin America in its imaginaries and mappings. In Siskind’s formulation, world literature is a modernizing discursive strategy, a way in which cultures negotiate their aspirations to participate in global networks of cultural exchange, and an original tool to reorganize literary history. Working with novels, poems, essays, travel narratives, and historical documents, Siskind reads the way Latin American literary modernity was produced as a global relation, from the rise of planetary novels in the 1870s and the cosmopolitan imaginaries of modernism at the turn of the twentieth century, to the global spread of magical realism. With its unusual breadth of reference and firm but unobtrusive grounding in philosophy, literary theory, and psychoanalysis, Cosmopolitan Desires will have a major impact in the fields of Latin American studies and comparative literature.

Snow begins in the year 1992. Ka, a poet and political exile, returns to Turkey as a journalist, assigned to investigate troubling reports of suicide in the small and mysterious city of Kars on the Turkish border. The snow is falling fast as he arrives, and soon all roads are closed. There's a 'suicide epidemic' amongst young religious women forbidden to wear their headscarves. Islamists are poised to win the local elections and Ka is falling in love with the beautiful and radiant Ipek, now recently divorced. Amid blanketing snowfall and universal suspicion, he finds himself pursued by terrorism in a city wasting away under the shadow of Europe. In the midst of growing religious and political violence, the stage is set for a terrible and desperate act . . . Touching, slyly comic, and humming with cerebral suspense, Snow evokes the spiritual fragility of the non-Western world, its ambivalence about the godless West, and its fury.

'Life for De Quincey was either angels ascending on vaults of cloud or vagrants shivering on the city streets.' Thomas De Quincey - opium-eater, celebrity journalist, and professional doppelgänger � is embedded in our culture. Modelling his character on Coleridge and his sensibility on Wordsworth, De Quincey took over the poet's former cottage in Grasmere and turned it into an opium den. Here, increasingly detached from the world, he nurtured his growing hatred of his former idols and his obsession with murder as one of the fine arts. De Quincey may never have felt the equal of the giants of the Romantic Literature he so worshipped but the writing style he pioneered � scripted and sculptured emotional memoir � was to inspire generations of writers: Dickens, Dostoevsky, Virginia Woolf. James Joyce knew whole pages of his work off by heart and he was arguably the father of what we now call psychogeography. This spectacular biography, the produce of meticulous scholarship and beautifully supple prose, tells the riches-to-rags story of a figure of dazzling complexity and dazzling originality, whose rackety life was lived on the run, and both brings De Quincey and his martyred but wild soul triumphantly to life and firmly establishes Frances Wilson in the front rank of contemporary biographers.
