Una memoria sobre la amistad, la identidad, el género, el bullying, el crecimiento, el punk rock y el poder del outfit perfecto. Tomboy. Una chica ruda acompaña a una galardonada artista y autora a través de los años de su infancia y adolescencia, y explora, con humor, honestidad e intensidad, lo que significa "ser una chica". Su autora, Liz Prince, ha sido ilustradora para Adventure Time, Steven Universe y Regular Show. Al crecer, Liz Prince no era una niña muy femenina que digamos, no se ponía tutús rosas ni jugaba a ser una dulce princesa como las demás niñas de su vecindario. Pero tampoco era exactamente uno de los chicos. Era más bien algo en medio. Pero con las presiones de la secundaria, la preparatoria, los papás, la amistad y el romance empujándola hacia todos lados, ese "en medio" no era precisamente un lugar fácil en el cual estar. La crìtica ha opinado: "Divertida y cercana mirada a aquello con lo que cada niño tiene que lidiar en cierto punto de su desarrollo, descifrando quién eres verdaderamente por dentro cuando todos los demás sólo ven lo que creen que deberías ser por fuera." -Jeffrey Brown, autor de Clumsy, Jedi Academy y Darth Vader and Son- "ESPECTACULAR. Un libro que hace pensar seriamente a cualquier persona sobre los roles de género predeterminados por la sociedad." -Kirkus Reviews- "Liz Prince retrata la incomodidad y la humillación de la infancia y la adolescencia con una precisión maravillosa (por no decir dolorosa). Todo niño que tome este libro en sus manos estará al tanto de los secretos que la mayoría de nosotros no aprende sino hasta que es demasiado tarde, y cualquier adulto que lo lea traerá a la memoria una verdad esencial: que está muy bien ser exactamente quien queremos ser, no importa cuán raros nos consideren los demás. Tomboy. Una chica ruda no es un libro de autoayuda pero debería serlo." -Julia Wertz, autora de Drinking at the Movies y The Infinite Wait- "Liz Prince manda las normas de género al diablo. Una encantadora memoria que mueve a la reflexión y que no puedes dejar de leer, además de llevar en sí una gran importancia." -Ariel Shrag, autor de Adam y Potential-

Women's stories in India have been handed down from generation to generation, enriched and embroidered along the way. Political change and the arrival of print culture meant that storytelling was pushed into the background. But in more recent times, these voices have once again come centre-stage - confident, varied and complex. Spanning half a century, this collection covers many languages and cultures, and reflects the vast and complex cultures of the country and its diaspora. It offers a view of the changes that have taken place, both in terms of the subjects women choose to write about and their preferred way of writing about these subjects. From established names such as Mahashveta Devi to the newer generation of young authors, such as Tishani Doshi, Katha brings to the reader a vivid array of voices.

In his acclaimed novels of Italian-American life, Peter Pezzelli explores themes of friendship, hope, and second chances. With Villa Mirabella, he invites readers into the lives of an unforgettable family—and into the warmth of one very special bed and breakfast . . . When Jason Mirabella returns to his childhood home on a blustery winter’s day, the only thing he’s sure of is that he’ll be staying in Providence just long enough to get back on his feet again. It’s been three years since Jason moved to Los Angeles, brimming with ambitions he knew could never be fulfilled in Rhode Island. He had no intention of entering the family business—running a beautiful but timeworn B&B that’s struggling to compete with downtown’s luxurious new hotels. Smart, proud, and hardworking, Jason found quick success in L.A., until one foolish decision cost him everything. Jason’s widowed father, Giulio, is overjoyed to have his prodigal son back in the fold under any circumstances, though his siblings, Ray and Natalie, are less than thrilled. But as days go by, Jason slowly begins to carve out a place for himself, rediscovering everything he was so eager to leave behind, and beginning a tentative romance with a young woman who opens his eyes to a wider world. Just as Jason begins to forge a better understanding of his family, circumstances transpire to test that bond and challenge his resolutions. Now, as the promise of spring comes to New England once more, Jason will learn that sometimes, you can go home again, and the answers found there may be the only ones you need...

But she wasn't exactly one of the guys either, as she quickly learned when her Little League baseball coach exiled her to the outfield instead of letting her take the pitcher's mound. Liz was somewhere in the middle, and "Tomboy" is the story of her struggle to find the place where she belonged." Tomboy" is a graphic novel about refusing gender boundaries, yet unwittingly embracing gender stereotypes at the same time, and realizing later in life that you can be just as much of a girl in jeans and a T-shirt as you can in a pink tutu. A memoir told anecdotally, "Tomboy "follows author and zine artist Liz Prince through her early childhood into adulthood and explores her ever-evolving struggles and wishes regarding what it means to "be a girl." From staunchly refuting anything she perceived as being "girly" to the point of misogyny, to discovering throughthe punk community that your identity is whatever you make of it, regardless of your gender, "Tomboy" is as much humorous and honest as it is at points uncomfortable and heartbreaking."

She fell in love when she first saw him on the television screen. From that moment on, Nicole vowed to become an actress. Decades later, when Gary and Nicole meet by chance, Gary doesn’t fall in love with the real Nicole Graham, just a sanitized version of her. Since childhood, Nicole has had a cross to bear that nobody knows about except her mother, Reba, but she can’t tell anyone….anymore. Through years of diaries and letters hidden in a secret trunk, Gary learns the truth about his beloved. As he reads the story of her life in her own words, Nicole clings to life after being involved in a near-fatal plane crash. But will he still feel the same about her, even if she survives? Can he forgive her for all the lies? This book was written in memory of one of my favourite actors, and to remind us that not all illnesses are worn on one’s shirt sleeves.
