Skillfully weaving together the rich histories that inform the country’s diverse culinary traditions, My Sweet Mexico is a delicious journey into the soul of the cuisine. From yeasted breads that scent the air with cinnamon, anise, sugar, fruit, and honey, to pushcarts that brighten plazas with paletas and ice creams made from watermelon, mango, and avocado, Mexican confections are like no other. Stalwarts like Churros, Amaranth Alegrías, and Garibaldis—a type of buttery muffin with apricot jam and sprinkles—as well as Passion Fruit–Mezcal Trifle and Cheesecake with Tamarind Sauce demonstrate the layering of flavors unique to the world of dulces. In her typical warm and enthusiastic style, Gerson explains the significance of indigenous ingredients such as sweet maguey plants, mesquite, honeys, fruits, and cacao, and the happy results that occur when combined with Spanish troves of cinnamon, wheat, fresh cow’s milk, nuts, and sugar cane. In chapters devoted to breads and pastries, candies and confections, frozen treats, beverages, and contemporary desserts, Fany places cherished recipes in context and stays true to the roots that shaped each treat, while ensuring they’ll yield successful results in your kitchen. With its blend of beloved standards from across Mexico and inventive, flavor-forward new twists, My Sweet Mexico is the only guide you need to explore the delightful universe of Mexican treats.

Oficio de tinieblas está basada en el levantamiento de los chamulas de 1867 a 1870 en San Cristóbal, Chiapas, que culminó con la crucifixión de uno de ellos al proclamarlo como el Cristo indígena. Rosario Castellanos se sumerge en la historia y sus protagonistas para buscar entender las circunstancias que llevaron a un pueblo a tan desgarrador acontecimiento y lo recrea en un México cercano: el de la reforma agraria durante el gobierno de Lázaro Cárdenas. Una extraordinaria narración que retrata en toda su crudeza la opresión del mundo indígena, que apenas consigue sobrevivir a la pobreza mientras enfrenta el menosprecio y despojo de sus tierras por parte de los blancos ladinos.

«Mi autor favorito de novelas de crimen y misterio —a menudo imitado, pero jamás igualado— es Jim Thompson.» Stephen King«Si Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammett y Cornell Woorich se hubieran fundido en una especie de unión impía y hubiesen tenido un vástago literario, sin duda se habría tratado de Jim Thompson [...]. Su obra arroja una intensa luz sobre la condición humana.» The Washington Post William Collins, el protagonista de Un cuchillo en la mirada, es apuesto, elegante y amable. Pero, cuando se enfada, se convierte en un tipo peligroso. Ahora Collins, quien en su pasado como boxeador sufrió un accidente letal, se ha escapado por cuarta vez de la institución psiquiátrica donde estaba ingresado y se ha encontrado con un estafador y a una mujer que le atrae fuertemente, y cuyos planes para él incluyen el secuestro, el asesinato, y algo mucho peor. Jim Thompson (1906-1977) desempeñó diversos oficios antes de dedicarse al periodismo y a la literatura. Las experiencias que acumuló trabajando como camarero, camionero, experto en explosivos, vigilante y vendedor ambulante se reflejan en todas sus novelas. Pese a que gran parte de su obra se publicó en revistas y ediciones baratas, sus novelas entrañan gran valor literario, documental y biográfico, pues reflejan, con su desfachatez característica, la crueldad de la Gran Depresión y las experiencias que marcaron su vida. Publicó su primera novela, Aquí y ahora (Ediciones de Bolsillo, 2003), en 1942 pero se consagró como escritor diez años después con El asesino dentro de mí. Además de veintinueve novelas, Thompson escribió dos guiones cinematográficos: Atraco perfecto y Senderos de gloria.Otros títulos de Jim Thompson en El Aleph Editores:1.280 almasSólo un asesinatoLos timadores
