Nightmare Alley William Gresham


Stan Carlisle could read people, standing along the sidelines of the main carny attractions where he worked, watching the washed up geek eaten by alcoholism. The clairvoyant with her frightening pack of cards, the strong man with the muscles of a Greek god, the twisted leg acrobat who walked on his arms, and the charming ‘lectric bulb girl whose blazing body defied lightning: they all performed beneath the gaze of the crowd at the Ten-in-One show. The audience oooohed in awe and astonishment, averted their eyes in horrified embarrassment, forever applauding the appalling, falling for the oldest gag in the book, yet always coming back, like ghosts called up from the past, wondering what the future would hold. Stan understood them, saw through them, and knew he could go further. He was a convincer, not a pretender. He was a master with words and could pawn off more than palmistry. He would prophesize, proselytize, see his profits rise. The Great Stanton. If he played his cards right he…


The Nightmare Lars Kepler


Lars Kepler returns with a piercing, bestselling sequel to The Hypnotist After spellbinding audiences in The Hypnotist, Detective Inspector Joona Linna is back in The Nightmare, an internationally bestselling Swedish thriller published to critical acclaim in dozens of countries. As the Swedish newspaper Arbetarbladet put it, 'The reader is ready to sell his own soul for the opportunity to read this book without interruption, in one sitting.' On a summer night, police recover the body of a young woman from an abandoned pleasure boat drifting around the Stockholm archipelago. Her lungs are filled with brackish water, and the forensics team is sure that she drowned. Why, then, is the pleasure boat still afloat, and why are there no traces of water on her clothes or body? The next day, a man turns up dead in his state apartment in Stockholm, hanging from a lamphook in the ceiling. All signs point to suicide, but the room has a high ceiling, and there's not a single piece of furniture around…

Crash J. Ballard


This powerful and often terrifying novel, the fruit of J. G. Ballard's obsession with the motor-car, will shock and disturb many readers. Few products of modern technology excite as much fascination and interest as the automobile, but each year hundreds of thousands of people die in car crashes throughout the world, millions are injured. Yet attempts to regulate the motor-car and reduce this slaughter constantly meet with strong and almost unthinking resistance. Ballard believes that the key to this paradox is to be found in the car crash itself, which contains an image of all our fantasies of speed, power, violence and sexuality. 'Three years ago, I held an exhibition of crashed cars at the New Arts Laboratory in London,' he says. 'People were fascinated by the cars but I was surprised that these damaged vehicles were continually attacked and abused during the month they were on show – watching this, I decided to write Crash.' The novel opens with the narrator recovering in hospital…


Endless Love Scott Spencer


One of the most celebrated novels of its time, Endless Love remains perhaps the most powerful novel ever written about young love. Riveting, compulsively readable, and ferociously sexual, Endless Love tells the story of David Axelrod and his overwhelming love for Jade Butterfield. David's and Jade's lives are consumed with each other; their rapport, their desire, their sexuality take them further than they understand. And when Jade's father suddenly banishes David from the house, he fantasizes the forgiveness his rescue of the family will bring and he sets a "perfectly safe" fire to their house. What unfolds is a nightmare, a dark world in which David's love is a crime and a disease, a world of anonymous phone calls, crazy letters, and new fears ― and the inevitable and punishing pursuit of the one thing that remains most real to him: his endless love for Jade and her family.

El Amor Brujo Roberto Arlt


`El amor brujo es una novela, que, a diferencia de las anteriores, reduce la cantidad de personajes y de espacios donde transcurren las acciones. El protagonista es el ingeniero Balder, que, casado y con un hijo, establece un noviazgo con Irene, una adolescente. Hay otra historia secundaria, la de Zulema, amiga de Irene y mayor que ella, cuyo matrimonio con el mecánico Alberto no es feliz. Balder se separa finalmente de Irene, y luego de una serie de desilusiones se reconcilia con su esposa.` (Escuela Normal Superior de Chascomús 1997) En 1932 se publica su última novela El amor brujo, un alegato contra el matrimonio burgués, su falsa moral y sus intereses materiales. Arremete, en primer lugar, contra la mujer burguesa (novia y futura suegra), interesada en asegurarse (asegurar a la hija) el futuro, explotando el instinto sexual del hombre.


La Silla Del Águila Carlos Fuentes


En el año 2020, en un México sin telecomunicaciones ni computadoras porque los norteamericanos (proveedores únicos) lo tienen castigado, se desata la lucha por la presidencia, es decir, por sentarse en la Silla del Águila y no abandonarla nunca. Aquí no hay lealtad que valga: por conseguir el poder, el padre es capaz de traicionar al hijo, la esposa al cónyuge, el secretario de Estado al Primer Mandatario. Y todo puede pasar: crímenes de viejos caciques, espionaje de supuestos allegados, maniobras tétricas, extorsión sexual? e incluso, que reaparezca en la escena política un fallido candidato presidencial al que todos creyeron asesinado años atrás. El triunfador, el Ungido, oculta un pasmoso secreto que será necesario preservar a toda costa.


Adiós Muchachos Daniel Chavarría


Novela de ficción policíaca, en la que se atreve a rellenar la trama con altas dosis de sensualidad y humor. Dos ingredientes que el autor consigue difuminar en una intriga inteligente y de rápida lectura. Por un lado aparece Alicia, una joven ladina que en las humildes calles de Cuba practica una excelente variante de la prostitución mientras sueña el encuentro del adinerado marido. Alicia se pasea en bicicleta a la caza de cualquier extranjero rico que tenga la desventura (o la suerte) de encontrarse con ella en su camino. En ese momento es cuando la joven mantis despliega sus encantos premeditados e inicia su fructífero juego de caza y captura: ella se cae de la bicicleta, la víctima le ayuda a levantarse, le ofrece a llevarle hasta casa y allí es donde Alicia dará el último mordisco a su presa? y a su cartera. Por otro lado está Víctor King, un hombre rico y apuesto que indudablemente también se cruzará con Alicia y presenciará su espectáculo de seducción. Sin embargo…


Dafne desvanecida José Somoza


El cubano (La Habana, 1959) José Carlos Somoza quedó finalista del Nadal del 2.000 con esta complicada novela donde se plantea el conflicto entre el mundo `real` y el literario. La sociedad que imagina Somoza, aunque no necesariamente utópica ni ucrónica (transcurre en un Madrid reconocible y en tiempos contemporáneos), es la de la preponderancia de lo literario, de lo narrativo. Hay una macroeditorial, SALMACIS, omnipotente que además es sólo la terminal ibérica de una todavía mayor multinacional. En esta sociedad donde `todo el mundo escribe`, un escritor de fama, Juan Cobo, ha sufrido un accidente de automóvil y ha quedado amnésico. Recuerda vagamente haber entrevisto a una dama misteriosa de la que cree haberse enamorado y cuya pista sigue. Por aquí aparecen cosas bizarras como un restaurante `literario` donde los comensales, mientras restauran sus fuerzas, escriben en unos folios que les facilitan los siempre solícitos camareros. Algún día estos fragmentos serán editados.…


Si Te Dicen Que Cai Juan Marsé


En palabras del autor, la novela no es tanto una revancha personal contra el franquismo, como una secreta y nostálgica despedida de su infancia. Lo cual no quita para que, en efecto, la sórdida vida cotidiana en un barrio ya desaparecido (Guinardó) vuelva a ser el marco de unas historias en las que se entremezclan la sátira y la violencia sexual con una indiscutible riqueza de sensaciones y fantasías. Muchas de ellas se cuentan mediante las `aventis`, un hallazgo que permite, a partir de historias inventadas por unos niños nacidos de la violencia y criados en la calle, ir tejiendo una realidad alucinante y, al mismo tiempo, extrañamente cotidiana.


Cantos De Marineros En Las Pampas Rodolfo Fogwill


Para usted, lector español, por fin en directo, esta selección de la obra de uno de-los autores más fascinantes y excéntricos de la mejor literatura argentina: Rodolfo Enrique Fogwill (1941). 0, como él mismo prefiere, Fogwill a secas. (`Probablemente por una especie de megalomanía`, explicaba en una entrevista. `Yo quería ocupar un lugar tipo Sócrates o Hegel. ¿Quién dice Guillermo Federico Hegel?`). Imposible dar aquí cabida al abigarrado currículo de este autor, quien, según declara en la indispensable presentación de sí mismo que antepone a este volumen, ha sido entre otras cosas `publicitario, investigador de mercados, redactor, empresario, especulador de Bolsa, terrorista y estafador -eso consta en mi prontuario de la policía federal argentina-, columnista especializado en temas de política cultural en todo tipo de medios, profesor universitario y consultor de empresas`. Como crítico y editor, Fogwill tuvo en los años setenta una intervención muy activa y polémica…


Fury Salman Rushdie


Life is fury. Fury—sexual, Oedipal, political, magical, brutal—drives us to our finest heights and coarsest depths. This is what we are, what we civilize ourselves to disguise—the terrifying human animal in us, the exalted, transcendent, self-destructive, untrammeled lord of creation. We raise each other to the heights of joy. We tear each other limb from bloody limb.
