Una épica moderna, una historia de amor inolvidable situada en el mapa más underground, político, sucio y conflictivo de la ciudad de Estambul. Una novela destinada a convertirse en uno de los mayores logros del Premio Nobel Orhan Pamuk. Una sensación extraña, la novela más reciente de Orhan Pamuk, arranca con el anuncio de que lo que vamos a leer es, por un lado el relato de la vida, las aventuras y los sueños del vendedor callejero Mevlut Karatas, y por el otro un retrato de la ciudad de Estambul entre 1969 y 2012 visto a través de los ojos de numerosas personas. Desde que a los doce años abandonara la aldea de Anatolia donde nació, Mevlut Karatas no hace más que fantasear sobre su vida. Instalado en Estambul, desde el primer momento se siente cautivado por la ciudad vieja, sometida a constantes transformaciones, y por la nueva metrópoli que se abre paso rápidamente en su lugar. Y es allí, en «el centro del mundo», donde le veremos crecer, enamorarse y ganarse la vida como vendedor callejero de boza, una bebida tradicional turca. Pasa el tiempo y él sueña con prosperar, pero el azar parece conspirar en su contra. Y mientras todos a su alrededor logran hacer fortuna, él sigue deambulando de noche por los callejones de la ciudad, subsistiendo a base de míseros trabajillos que no conducen a nada y con esa sensación extraña que le hace sentirse diferente a los demás. Hará falta un nuevo giro del destino para que Melvut comprenda finalmente qué es lo que lleva toda la vida anhelando. La crítica ha dicho... «A falta de una palabra mejor diremos que Pamuk despliega la cualidad más rara y preciosa de un novelista: la sabiduría. [...]Pamuk muestra un talento que, con independencia de la técnica, el tono o el tema que elija, anima como una corriente eléctrica todos sus libros: su conocimiento de los pequeños deseos, envidias, irritaciones, esperanzas, deseos, arreglos, testarudeces y autoengaños que articulan la existencia cotidiana.» Gonzalo Torné, Letras Libres «Pamuk nos guía por un relato que, recorriendo varias décadas de pérdida, es, a su vez, un retrato casi antropológico de la obsesión, la clase social y las ideas sobre Oriente y Occidente.» The New York Times «Una de sus más cautivadoras novelas. Pamuk hace por Estambul lo que Joyce hizo por Dublín.» Adam Kirsch, The Washington Post «Pamuk reveló un gran talento narrativo desde el primer momento y su visión de Turquía, lejos de estereotipos, nos muestra la esencia de un país que ha forjado su identidad combinando tradición y modernidad.» El Cultural «Borges, Eco o Italo Calvino son el punto de referencia de este autor que bebe de las aguas hipnóticas y duales de una ciudad permanentemente escorada entre dos orillas, Oriente y Occidente.» ABC Cultura

In a near-future new age of corporate control, hacker mercenaries, and electronic terrorism, a public relations executive on the rise finds herself caught in the violent epicenter of a data war Two decades into the twenty-first century, the world’s nations are becoming irrelevant. Corporations are the true global powers, with information the most valuable currency, while the smaller island nations have become sanctuaries for data pirates and terrorists. A globe-trotting PR executive for the large corporate economic democracy Rizome Industries Group, Laura Webster is present when a foreign representative is assassinated on Rizome soil during a conference for offshore data havens. Dispatched immediately on an international mission of diplomacy, Laura hopes she can make a difference in a volatile, unsteady world, but instead finds herself trapped on the front lines of rapidly escalating third-world hostilities and caught up in an inescapable net of conspiracy, terrorism, post-millennial voodoo, and electronic warfare. During the 1980s, science fiction luminary Bruce Sterling envisioned the future . . . and hit it almost dead-on. The author who, along with William Gibson, Neal Stephenson, and Rudy Rucker, helped create and define the cyberpunk subgenre imagines a world of tomorrow in Islands in the Net that bears a striking—and disturbing—resemblance to our present-day information-age reality. Nominated for the Hugo and Locus Awards and winner of the John W. Campbell Memorial Award, Sterling’s extraordinary novel is a gripping, eye-opening, and remarkably prescient science fiction classic.

Lyrical, surreal, and yet unsettlingly realistic, The Sinistra Zone swims in the totalitarian backwaters of Eastern Europe Entering a weird, remote hamlet, Andrei calls himself “a simple wayfarer,” but he is in fact highly compromised: he has no identity papers. Taken under the wing of the military zone’s commander, Andrei is first assigned to guard the blueberries that supply a nearby bear reserve. He is surrounded by human wrecks, supernatural umbrellas, birds carrying plagues, albino twins. The bears — and an affair with a married woman — occupy Andrei until his protector is replaced by a new female commander, “a slender creature, quiet,diaphanous, like a dragonfly,” and yet an iron-fisted harridan. As things grow ever more alarming, Andrei becomes a “corpse watchman,” standing guard over the dead to check for any signs of life, and then …

From the Nobel Prize-winning novelist, an inspired, thoughtful, and deeply personal book about reading and writing novels. In this fascinating set of essays, based on the talks he delivered at Harvard University as part of the distinguished Norton Lecture series, Pamuk presents a comprehensive and provocative theory of the novel and the experience of reading. Drawing on Friedrich Schiller’s famous distinction between “naïve” writers—those who write spontaneously—and “sentimental” writers—those who are reflective and aware—Pamuk reveals two unique ways of processing and composing the written word. He takes us through his own literary journey and the beloved novels of his youth to describe the singular experience of reading. Unique, nuanced, and passionate, this book will be beloved by readers and writers alike. From the Trade Paperback edition.

A thrilling literary novel about crime and corruption in Latin America told in alternating voices and perspectives, Night Prayers is the story of Manuel, a Colombian philosophy student arrested in Bangkok and accused of drug trafficking. Unless he enters a guilty plea he will almost certainly be sentenced to death. But it is not his own death that weighs most heavily on him but a tender longing for his sister, Juana, whom he hasn't seen for years. Before he dies he wants nothing more than to be reunited with her. Fans of both Roberto Bolaño and Gabriel García Márquez will find much to admire in this story about the mean streets of Bogotá, the sordid bordellos of Thailand, and a love between siblings that knows no end. As a boy, Manuel was a dreamer, a lover of literature, and a tagger. His sister Juana made a promise to do everything in her power to protect him from the drug-and violence-infested streets of Bogotá. She decided to take him as far from Colombia as possible, and in order to raise the money to do so, she went to work as a high-priced escort and entered into contact with the dangerous world of corrupt politicians. When things spun out of control she was forced to flee, leaving her beloved brother behind. Juana and Manuel's story reaches the ears of the Colombian counsel general in New Delhi, and he tracks down Juana, now married to a rich Japanese man, in Tokyo. The counsel general takes it upon himself to reunite the two siblings—a feat that may be beyond his power. With the stylishness that has earned him a reputation as one of "the most important Colombian writers" (Manuel Vázquez Montalbán), Santiago Gamboa lends his story a driving, irresistible rhythm. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Alesandro Sussken is a composer living in Glaund, a fascist state constantly at war with another equally faceless opponent. His brother is sent off to fight; his family is destroyed by grief. Occasionally Alesandro catches glimpses of islands in the far distance from the shore, and they feed into the music he composes. But all knowledge of the other islands is forbidden by the military junta, until he is unexpectedly sent on a cultural tour. And what he discovers on his journey will change his perceptions of his home, his music and the ways of the islands themselves. Bringing him answers where he could not have foreseen them. A rich and involving tale playing with the lot of the creative mind, the rigours of living under war and the nature of time itself, this is multi award-winning, master storyteller Christopher Priest at his absolute best.

Raule is a wandering surgeon, a healer who still believes in just--and lost--causes. Bound by a desire to escape the ghosts of the past, together they flee to the teeming city of Ashamoil, where Raule plies her trade among the desperate and destitute, and Gwynn becomes bodyguard and assassin for the household of a corrupt magnate. There, in the saving and taking of lives, they find themselves immersed in a world where art infects life, dream and waking fuse, and splendid and frightening miracles begin to bloom . . .
