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.

Full of unforgettable figures and an unrelenting spirit of adventure, Strange Stones is a far-ranging, thought-provoking collection of Peter Hessler’s best reportage—a dazzling display of the powerful storytelling, shrewd cultural insight, and warm sense of humor that are the trademarks of his work. Over the last decade, as a staff writer for The New Yorker and the author of three books, Peter Hessler has lived in Asia and the United States, writing as both native and knowledgeable outsider in these two very different regions. This unusual perspective distinguishes Strange Stones, which showcases Hessler’s unmatched range as a storyteller. “Wild Flavor” invites readers along on a taste test between two rat restaurants in South China. One story profiles Yao Ming, basketball star and China’s most beloved export, another David Spindler, an obsessive and passionate historian of the Great Wall. In “Dr. Don,” Hessler writes movingly about a small-town pharmacist and his relationship with the people he serves. While Hessler’s subjects and locations vary, subtle but deeply important thematic links bind these pieces—the strength of local traditions, the surprising overlap between apparently opposing cultures, and the powerful lessons drawn from individuals who straddle different worlds.

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.
