El blog del Inquisidor Lorenzo Silva


Intrigante, enigmática, imposible de abandonar. Una historiadora se encuentra en la web un blog que le llama la atención «Cuaderno del Inquisidor». Ella ha centrado su tesis doctoral en el estudio del Tribunal del Santo Oficio en la España del siglo XVII, por lo que el apelativo del «Inquisidor» despierta enseguida su interés. El diario digital de este Inquisidor refleja a un hombre atormentado que relata que ha tenido parte en unos polémicos sucesos ocurridos en un convento español en el siglo XVII, cuando se acusa a las monjas y el abad de herejía. Él es el encargado de los interrogatorios a los acusados. ¿Pero, quién hay detrás de este inquisidor que cuelga su bitácora en la red? ¿Qué significa este diario? ¿Utiliza el proceso de unas pobres monjas y su abad a modo de expiación de una culpa que es incapaz de afrontar? Una historia profunda, intrigante, que subraya que estamos ante puro Misterio de la vida, el juego de apariencia y verdad, la manipulación de la realidad.Una…


The World is Flat Thomas Friedman


Thomas L. Friedman is not so much a futurist, which he is sometimes called, as a presentist. His aim in The World Is Flat, as in his earlier, influential Lexus and the Olive Tree, is not to give you a speculative preview of the wonders that are sure to come in your lifetime, but rather to get you caught up on the wonders that are already here. The world isn't going to be flat, it is flat, which gives Friedman's breathless narrative much of its urgency, and which also saves it from the Epcot-style polyester sheen that futurists—the optimistic ones at least—are inevitably prey to. What Friedman means by "flat" is "connected": the lowering of trade and political barriers and the exponential technical advances of the digital revolution that have made it possible to do business, or almost anything else, instantaneously with billions of other people across the planet. This in itself should not be news to anyone. But the news that Friedman has to deliver is that just when we stopped paying…


Cichodajka.pl Weronika R.


Autentyczny zapis notatek i dyskusji prowadzonych na blogu założonym przez 17-letnią dziewczynę. Mieszkanka stolicy, uczennica dobrego liceum, wychowująca się w zamożnej i szczęśliwej rodzinie świadczy usługi seksualne, osiągając przy tym znaczne korzyści – cenne prezenty, duże kwoty pieniędzy. Jednocześnie dokonuje prowokacyjnego wpisu na założonej przez siebie stronie internetowej i czeka na reakcje internautów. Ich wypowiedzi są najczęściej bardzo krytyczne, co skłania Weronikę do ostrych komentarzy. Jest to okazja do wyrażania przez nią poglądów m.in. na temat polskiej mentalności, moralności, religijności. Co jakiś czas dziewczyna opowiada coś nowego o sobie, o kolejnych przygodach, o sytuacjach w szkole, planach wyjazdowych. Blog systematycznie się rozrasta, aż wreszcie liczba odwiedzin sięga prawie 300 000. Emocje i komentarze odwiedzających są bardzo zróżnicowane: jedni nazywają ją prostytutką, inni – nimfomanką, jeszcze inni składają…


Tinkers Paul Harding


This Monday, on April 12, the winners of the Pulitzer Prize were announced, and since then, little-known debut author Paul Harding has quickly risen to fame after his novel "Tinkers" won the Pulitzer for fiction. The novel, about a dying man's recollection of and relationship with his father, a tinker in Maine, was turned down by every major publisher over the course of several years. It was finally published by Bellevue Literary Press, a small publisher associated with the NYU Medical School. Even after its publication and the excellent reviews across the board, few hoped for it to rise to the top. And when Harding was awarded the Pulitzer, the Boston Globe reports, he only found out by checking the award's website – nobody had bothered to call him. "Tinkers" is the first novel from a small press to win the Pulitzer since "Confederacy of Dunces" won in 1981 and everyone in the publishing industry is scrambling to take some part of the credit for the book's success. The Boston Globe…
