Con La clave secreta del Universo el genial Stephen Hawking y su hija Lucy han conseguido acercar a los pequeños -y no tan pequeños- las maravillas y los secretos del Universo, y demostrarnos que la ciencia también puede ser divertida y apasionante. A George nada le gusta más en el mundo que mirar las estrellas; también le encantaría tener un ordenador con el que navegar y conocer más sobre el Universo, pero sabe que eso es misión imposible. En casa, sus padres son tan ecologistas que no quieren ni oír hablar del progreso y la ciencia. Pero lo que ellos no saben es que el enemigo está muy cerca. Acaba de llegar un nuevo vecino que, ¡horror!, es un eminente científico, y eso, para los padres de George, solo significa una cosa: peligro. Si hubieran imaginado lo que le esperaba a su hijo, nunca le habrían dejado entrar en su casa... Reseña: «Se juntan el asombro de un niño con la agudeza intelectual de un genio.» The Sunday Times

Febrero de 1862. En medio de la sangrienta guerra civil que divide al país en dos, el hijo de doce años del presidente Lincoln está gravemente enfermo. En cuestión de pocos días, el pequeño Willie muere y su cuerpo es trasladado hasta un cementerio en Georgetown. Los periódicos de la época recogen a un Lincoln deshecho por la pena que visita la tumba en varias ocasiones para guardar el cuerpo de su hijo. A partir de este hecho histórico, Saunders despliega una historia inolvidable sobre el amor y la pérdida que se adentra en el territorio de lo sobrenatural, allí donde tiene cabida desde lo terrorífico hasta lo hilarante. Willie Lincoln se halla en un estado intermedio entre la vida y la muerte, el llamado Bardo según la tradición tibetana. En este limbo, donde los fantasmas se reúnen para compadecerse y reírse de lo que dejaron atrás, una lucha de dimensiones titánicas surge de lo más profundo del alma del pequeño Willie.

How do contemporary films depict Buddhists and Buddhism? What aspects of the Buddhist tradition are these films keeping from our view? By repeatedly romanticizing the meditating monk, what kinds of Buddhisms and Buddhists are missing in these films and why? Silver Screen Buddha is the first book to explore the intersecting representations of Buddhism, race, and gender in contemporary films. Sharon A. Suh examines the cinematic encounter with Buddhism that has flourished in Asia and in the West in the past century – from images of Shangri-La in Frank Capra's 1937 Lost Horizon to Kim Ki-Duk's 2003 international box office success Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter...and Spring. The book helps readers see that representations of Buddhism in Asia and in the West are fraught with political, gendered, and racist undertones. Silver Screen Buddha draws significant attention to ordinary lay Buddhism, a form of the tradition given little play in popular film. By uncovering the differences between a fictionalized, commodified, and exoticized Buddhism, Silver Screen Buddha brings to light expressions of the tradition that highlight laity and women, on the one hand, and Asian and Asian Americans, on the other. Suh engages in a re-visioning of Buddhism that expands the popular understanding of the tradition, moving from the dominance of meditating monks to the everyday world of raced, gendered, and embodied lay Buddhists.

The author says: "The stories in this collection are an outgrowth of my lamentable childhood, as well as a reflection of those things in life which I found fascinating--in that they could mentally take me away from the horror of my daily life, and at least on the level of imagination offer me something worth waking up each morning for. Thus, the universes in this collection center around outsiders, artists, and freaks (be they natural-born or self-made); some of the stories are interconnected, but also designed to stand alone. I’ve included afterwords for each to shine additional light on both the works and their cultural personal inspirations. But more than a collection, to me this volume is a glimpse into my creative soul--and as such, it may not be perfect, it might not even be logical, but it is what I am, love it or hate it." Six cutting-edge stories of a bizarre, near-future America, a mix of strange cultures and curious characters, featuring tattoo artists, origami masters, Irezumi, the De Novo Shinkansen, Qatmandude...and the Blue Moon Roach Hotel!"

Una exquisita edición ilustrada de El dragón de hielo, un cuento del maestro del fantasy George R.R. Martin. Todos en la aldea coinciden: Adara es una niña rara, una niña del invierno. Nació durante la peor helada que se recuerda, y el frío se quedó para siempre con ella. Es fácil verla pasear sola por los campos helados o construir imaginarios castillos de arena y hielo. Nadie lo sabe, pero espera, impaciente, la visita del dragón de hielo. Adara no puede entender por qué todos le temen tanto si para ella es su mejor compañero de juegos. Con él se olvida de que el eterno enemigo del norte se acerca peligrosamente a la aldea y que lo mejor sería huir a las tierras cálidas del sur... George R.R. Martin, mundialmente conocido por su saga de literatura fantástica «Canción de hielo y fuego», nos ofrece este conmovedor relato de una amistad que puede con todas las barreras. Reseñas: «Este encantador cuento de Martin está lleno de pasión y poder... una aventura conmovedora con la tensión narrativa que cabría esperar en un autor de esta talla.» January Magazine «Martin va más allá de lo que podríamos esperar al ofrecernos este extraordinario cuento. Imprescindible para los fans de Martin, este es un buen libro para cualquiera... que ame el invierno y los dragones.» SFRevu

The War Within

From Victorian to Modernist Thought in the South, 1919-1945

The years after World War I saw a different sort of war in the American South, as Modernism began to contest the "New South Creed" for the allegiance of Southern intellectuals. In The War Within, Daniel Joseph Singal examines the struggle between the characteristic culture of twentieth-century America and the South's tenacious blend of Victorianism and the Cavalier myth. He explores the lives and works of historians Ulrich B. Phillips and Broadus Mitchell; novelists Ellen Glasgow, William Faulkner, and Robert Penn Warren; publisher William T. Couch; sociologists Howard Odum, Rupert Vance, Guy Johnson, and Arthur Raper; and Agrarian poets John Crowe Ransom, Donald Davidson, and Allen Tate. The drama Singal unfolds is as much national as regional in its implications. His sophisticated and original analysis of the complex relationship between these southern writers and their heritage enables him to trace the transition to Modernism with unusual clarity and to address questions of major importance in American intellectual history: How did Modernism come into being? Does it display a fundamental, underlying pattern? What are its essential values, beliefs, and assumptions? Singal marshals archival and published sources and combines them with oral history interviews to trace this process of change on the levels of both formal thought and individual experience. He uses the interwar South as the locale for a pioneering examination of the momentous change that has affected all of Western culture.

In Fifty Acres and a Poodle, Jeanne Marie Laskas described how she survived her first hilariously tumultuous year at Sweetwater Farm. Now she returns with a funny, touching, and personal new memoir of what happens after your dream comes true... With a picture-postcard farm, a wonderful marriage, two mules, and a new refrigerator that spits crushed ice, what more can a girl ask for? That’s precisely the question Jeanne Marie asks herself as she and Alex settle into their new life at Sweetwater Farm. Two years ago they left the city behind for a life filled with the practical, often comical, lessons of living close to the land—and they never looked back. Yet when her strong-willed mom is hospitalized with a sudden and mysterious paralysis, Jeanne Marie rushes home to Philadelphia and her extended, sometimes chaotic, but always loving family. It’s there that she realizes what is still missing from her life: a family of her own. Now it’s a matter of bringing up the subject to her husband, Alex, fifteen years older and with adult children of his own, who seems terrified that she’s thinking of adopting a Chihuahua. With warmth, wisdom, and unfailing humor, Laskas tells the poignant story of her search for motherhood—and what happens when a woman risks happily-ever-after for something even more precious. As she tends to her own ailing mother, Jeanne Marie discovers that the challenges and rewards of living with Mother Nature pale in comparison to those awakened by the nature of mothering. The Exact Same Moon is filled with hilarious and heartwarming vignettes of people and a way of life you’ll be glad you met. From "borrowing" sheep to help mow the lawn and sitting in on the racy hay jokes at the Agway Equine Clinic, to befriending the notorious old lady who holds the water rights to their future pond, corrupting the neighbors with satellite TV, and learning the fine art of going a-calling, Laskas proves once again that laughter, love, and wisdom are truly homegrown.
