When George finds a way to escape the spacecraft Artemis, where he has been trapped, he is overjoyed. But something is wrong. There’s a barren wasteland where his hometown used to be, intelligent robots roam the streets, and no one will talk to George about the Earth that he used to know.

Eco inédito. Las brillantes clases magistrales que Umberto Eco pronunciaba en la universidad, junto con una que no llegó a pronunciar. «Somos como enanos que están a hombros de gigantes, de modo que podemos ver más lejos que ellos, no tanto por nuestra estatura o nuestra agudeza visual, sino porque, al estar sobre sus hombros, estamos más altos que ellos.» Bernardo de Chartres A hombros de gigantes representa para los lectores de Eco un evento festivo. Lejos de las aulas universitarias, de las conferencias académicas y de las ceremonias de honor Eco escribe estos textos a lo largo de tres lustros, para entretener a los numerosísimos espectadores de la Milanesiana, el festival creado y dirigido por Elisabetta Sgarbi. Son textos que se inspiran a menudo en el tema central elegido cada año en la Milanesiana, pero que luego recorren ríos de repertorios que beben de la filosofía, la literatura, la estética, la ética y los medios de comunicación para devolvernos, en un lenguaje afable, imbuido de ironía, a veces lúdico o mordaz, la quintaesencia del universo de Eco. La crítica ha dicho... «Una fiesta de la inteligencia, un placer de los sentidos y una inolvidable experiencia.» J. Ferrer, La Razón «Diez siglos en una frase, ese es el método Eco. A hombros de gigantes es una de las más brillantes y majestuosas colecciones de apuntes que un curso universitario podría ofrecer.» Paolo di Paolo, La Repubblica «En tiempos de crisis radical del progreso, de dudas sobre la existencia misma de un mañana (el futuro es una imaginación) y de la obsesión identitaria que coloca las utopías en el pasado, A hombros de gigantes es una bocanada de aire fresco.» Wlodek Goldkorn, L'Espresso «Una narración que tiene la calidad de las clases de Eco, que sus alumnostanto añoran [...]. Este libro es una muestra ejemplar de quién era Eco.» Furio Colombo, Il Fatto Quotidiano «La lección póstuma de Umberto Eco: para ver desde arriba el juicio universal es mejor subirse a hombros de los antepasados.» Gianfranco Marrone, La Stampa «Este gigantesco sabio a quien nada humano le era ajeno demuestra que lo lúdico no está reñido con lo académico, [...] un pretexto para navegar por los meandros de su vasta sabiduría mezclando filosofía, literatura, estética, ética o el análisis de los "mass media".» Miguel Lorenci, El Comercio «Textos muy variados, entre filosofía y literatura, entre ética y estética, que están salpicados como siempre por un dinamismo festivo y nada solemne, a pesar de la enorme erudición desplegada.» Mercedes Monmany, ABC «Allí donde Eco disparaba su inteligencia se hacía la luz [...]. Leo con asombro y alegría estas últimas lecciones recién traducidas en A hombros de gigantes y echo de menos los anchos hombros de este gigante.» Domingo Ródenas, El Periódico de Catalunya

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.

From celebrated entertainer Michael Feinstein comes a beautifully illustrated account of the lives and legacies of the Gershwins—told through stories of twelve of their greatest songs. The “Ambassador of the Great American Songbook” Michael Feinstein was just twenty years old when he got the chance of a lifetime: a job with his hero, Ira Gershwin. During their six-year partnership, the two became close friends. Feinstein blossomed under Gershwin’s mentorship and Gershwin was reinvigorated by the younger man’s zeal for his and his brother George’s legacy. Now, in The Gershwins and Me, the only book of its kind, Michael Feinstein shares unforgettable stories and reminiscences from the music that defined American popular song, along with rare Gershwin memorabilia he’s collected through the years. From “Strike Up the Band” to “Love Is Here to Stay,” each of the twelve chapters highlights one of the Gershwins’ classic songs, exploring the brothers’ lives, illuminating what the music meant to them, and telling the stories of how their iconic tunes came to life. Throughout the star-studded narrative, Feinstein unfolds the moving chronicle of his own life with the Gershwins, describing his vision for their enduring presence today. No other writer could give us such an authoritative inside perspective on these titans of American culture. A timeless classic and the definitive account of the Gershwins and their legacy, The Gershwins and Me will having you humming with every turn of the page.
