The Goldsmith's Secret
Author: Elia Barcelo
Publisher: MacLehose Press
One snowy night in New York City, a successful but solitary goldsmith reflects on his life, and his unreliable memories intertwine and collide. Returning to the village where he grew up, he hopes with some trepidation that he will encounter Celia, "the Black Widow," a beautiful and mysterious friend of his mother with whom he had a short and passionate affair when he was a teenager, before she rejected him. But instead he meets a young woman who opens doors onto a strange world, and takes him back in time. The Goldsmith's Secret is a remarkable story with a magical twist, of a love trapped between two parallel times, set Spain in the fifties, seventies, and in the last year of the twentieth century. In beautifully economical language, and with a structure as intricate and refined as a bevelled jewel, The Goldsmith's Secret is filled with intense nostalgia, memories and desires. Elia Barcelo has come to be known across Europe as a truly original voice, and her books as poetic works of great subtlety.

Give up while you’re ahead, ol’ boy. She doesn’t want you. Then he remembered the passion of her kiss, the taste of her mouth, the scent of her hair, the feel of her skin beneath his hands, and he knew he wasn’t about to give up. While serving his country, Trevor Rule experienced the wrenching heartache of losing his best friend in a brutal attack. His grief is coupled with guilt when he falls in love with that friend’s wife by reading letters she’d written to her husband. Kyla gave birth the same day she learned that her husband had been killed in a terrorist assault on Marine barracks. That was almost two years ago. Now, Kyla is struggling to rear her son alone...and wrestling with the longing generated by the handsome stranger who fortuitously enters their lives. Except Trevor’s entrance into Kyla’s life isn’t accidental. He has sought her out not only because he feels he owes her and her child a debt he can never repay, but also because he remembers the impassioned words she wrote to her husband. Which Trevor took to heart. Will her growing love be strong enough to forgive his deception?

One of the 20th century's enduring works, One Hundred Years of Solitude is a widely beloved and acclaimed novel known throughout the world, and the ultimate achievement in a Nobel Prize–winning career. The novel tells the story of the rise and fall of the mythical town of Macondo through the history of the Buendía family. It is a rich and brilliant chronicle of life and death, and the tragicomedy of humankind. In the noble, ridiculous, beautiful, and tawdry story of the Buendía family, one sees all of humanity, just as in the history, myths, growth, and decay of Macondo, one sees all of Latin America. Love and lust, war and revolution, riches and poverty, youth and senility -- the variety of life, the endlessness of death, the search for peace and truth -- these universal themes dominate the novel. Whether he is describing an affair of passion or the voracity of capitalism and the corruption of government, Gabriel García Márquez always writes with the simplicity, ease, and purity that are the mark of a master. Alternately reverential and comical, One Hundred Years of Solitude weaves the political, personal, and spiritual to bring a new consciousness to storytelling. Translated into dozens of languages, this stunning work is no less than an accounting of the history of the human race.

Cuentos de Amor de Locura y de Muerte Horacio Quiroga co años después. Se veían aún de tarde en tarde, pero el viejo libertino, arrebujado ahora en sus artritis de enfermizo solterón, distaba mucho de ser respecto de su cuñada lo que se pretendía; y si mantenía el tren de madre e hija, lo hacía por una especie de compasión de ex amante, rayana en vil egoísmo, y sobre todo para autorizar los chismes actuales que hinchaban su vanidad. Nébel evocaba a la madre; y con un extremecimiento de muchacho loco por las mujeres casadas, recordaba cierta noche en que hojeando juntos y reclinados una Illustration, había creído sentir sobre sus nervios súbitamente tensos, un hondo hálito de deseo que surgía del cuerpo pleno que rozaba con él. Al levantar los ojos, Nébel había visto la mirada de ella, en lánguida imprecisión de mareo, posarse pesadamente sobre la suya. ¿Se había equivocado?
