Theft: A Love Story Peter Carey

Ferocious and funny, penetrating and exuberant, Theft is two-time Booker Prize-winner Peter Carey's master class on the things people will do for art, for love . . . and for money. “I don't know if my story is grand enough to be a tragedy, although a lot of shitty stuff did happen. It is certainly a love story but that did not begin until midway through the shitty stuff, by which time I had not only lost my eight-year-old son, but also my house and studio in Sydney where I had once been famous as a painter could expect in his own backyard. . .” So begins Peter Carey's highly charged and lewdly funny new novel. Told by the twin voices of the artist, Butcher Bones, and his “damaged two-hundred-and-twenty-pound brother” Hugh, it recounts their adventures and troubles after Butcher's plummeting prices and spiralling drink problem force them to retreat to New South Wales. Here the formerly famous artist is reduced to being a caretaker for his biggest collector, as well as nurse to his…

L'Art français de la guerre Alexis Jenni

« J'allais mal ; tout va mal ; j'attendais la fin. Quand j'ai rencontré Victorien Salagnon, il ne pouvait être pire, il l'avait faite la guerre de vingt ans qui nous obsède, qui n'arrive pas à finir, il avait parcouru le monde avec sa bande armée, il devait avoir du sang jusqu'aux coudes. Mais il m'a appris à peindre. Il devait être le seul peintre de toute l'armée coloniale, mais là-bas on ne faisait pas attention à ces détails. Il m'apprit à peindre, et en échange je lui écrivis son histoire. Il dit, et je pus montrer, et je vis le fleuve de sang qui traverse ma ville si paisible, je vis l'art français de la guerre qui ne change pas, et je vis l'émeute qui vient toujours pour les mêmes raisons, des raisons françaises qui ne changent pas. Victorien Salagnon me rendit le temps tout entier, à travers la guerre qui hante notre langue. » L’histoire commence avec la première guerre du Golfe : le narrateur, en pleine crise personnelle, fait la connaissance d’un ancien…

Malas artes Donna Leon

Una estudiante acude al comisario Brunetti para pedirle consejo: ¿hay alguna forma legal de limpiar el buen nombre de su familia, mancillado por un crimen que cometió muchos años atrás su ya fallecido abuelo? Impresionado por su belleza e inteligencia, pero incapaz de ayudarla, Brunetti casi olvida el asunto hasta que la joven aparece asesinada en su apartamento. La investigación de este crimen transporta al infatigable comisario a la Segunda Guerra Mundial, cuando los judíos italianos fueron sistemáticamente despojados de sus obras de arte por parte de los nazis y sus colaboradores. A medida que Brunetti va desenterrando secretos de colaboracionismo, crimen organizado y explotación, se da cuenta de que se está adentrando en una época que los italianos, empezando por su propio padre y su suegro, el conde Orazio, tienen especial interés en ocultar. Los fantasmas del pasado son enemigos más peligrosos de lo que cabe imaginar.

Only Time Will Tell Jeffrey Archer

The "Clifton Chronicles" is Jeffrey Archer's most ambitious work in four decades as an international bestselling author. The epic tale of Harry Clifton's life begins in 1920, with the chilling words, 'I was told that my father was killed in the war'. But it will be another twenty years before Harry discovers how his father really died, which will only lead him to question: who was his father? Is he the son of Arthur Clifton, a stevedore who worked in Bristol docks, or the first born son of a scion of West Country society, whose family owns a shipping line? "Only Time Will Tell" covers the years from 1920 to 1940, and includes a cast of memorable characters that "The Times" has compared to "The Forsyte Saga". Volume one takes us from the ravages of the Great War to the outbreak of the Second World War, when Harry must decide whether to take up a place at Oxford, or join the navy and go to war with Hitler's Germany. In Jeffrey Archer's masterful hands, the reader is taken on a journey that…

El Arte De Ensoñar Carlos Castaneda

El Arte de Ensoñar, el noveno y mas reciente libro de Carlos Castaneda, aparece despues de un período de seis años de silencio del autor."Don juan", escribe Carlos Castaneda en prólogo, "era un intermediario entre el mundo natural de la vida diaria y un mundo invisible, uno que él no llamaba lo sobrenatural, sino la segunda atención. Su taréa de maestro fue hacer accesible a mi esta configuración. En mis trabajos previos, he descrito sus metodos de enseñanza, al igual que las práticas que me hizo ejercitar, la más importante de las cuales fue sin duda, el arte de ensoñar. Don juan sostenia que nuestro mundo, que creemos ser único y absoluto, es solamente un mundo dentro de un grupo de mundos consecutivos, los cuales están ordenados como las capas de una cebolla. Aunque hemos sido condicionados para percibir únicamente nuestro mundo, efectivamente tenemos la capacidad de entrar en otros, que son tan reales, únicos, absolutos y absorbentes como el nuestro."

The Art of War (chinese) Sun Tzu

(Chinese: 孫子兵法) is a Chinese military treatise written during the 6th century BC by Sun Tzu. Composed of 13 chapters, each of which is devoted to one aspect of warfare, it has long been praised as the definitive work on military strategies and tactics of its time.The Art of War is one of the oldest books on military strategy in the world. Like a work of mathematics or science, much of the work is dedicated to defining its concepts in what has been described as a series of formulas. It is the first and one of the most successful works on strategy and has had a huge influence on Eastern and Western military thinking, business tactics, and beyond. Sun Tzu was the first to recognize the importance of positioning in strategy and that position is affected both by objective conditions in the physical environment and the subjective opinions of competitive actors in that environment. He taught that strategy was not planning in the sense of working through a to-do list, instead it requires…

El Arte de la Prudencia Baltazar Gracian

El Oráculo Manual o Arte de Prudencia, es aparentemente una colección de aforismos, recopilados manualmente por Lastanosa. Existe una relación en las propuestas de Gracián con el tema renacentista de la dignidad del hombre, a quien el autor ata a sus circunstancias, haciéndole descender a lo real y lo concreto. A lo largo de trescientos aforismos – de los que setenta y dos pertenecen a obras anteriores- se va trenzando un manual de avisos que se centra en la virtud de la prudencia, y en un aparente pesimismo que le permite criticar con gran realismo gran parte de los hábitos de convivencia y conducta de la sociedad. Esta obra, por su carácter práctico, específico y a la vez moderno y universal constituye la mejor ayuda para el hombre y la mujer de hoy que quieren afrontar los desafíos con pericia y determinación. Este libro completo consta de 300 sentencias que son cápsulas de sabiduría condensada.
