Un recorrido por la Cuba más desconocida, por el envés de la Cuba oficial, un libro de viajes novelado que trasmite la angustia de la represión y reparte las culpas del atraso de la isla. Xavier Alcalá realiza en esta obra, mestiza y lineal, un ejercicio de conocimiento de sí mismo a la vez que nos lleva a conocer la realidad política, económica y humana de la última colonia española, Cuba, una isla llena de paradojas y de belleza. La obra mezcla documentos periodísticos con ficción realista, mezcla textos ajenos con fragmentos de prosa ligera que le da el aspecto de un libro de viajes y nos traslada a una Cuba miserable y reprimida, desalentadora y estrechamente unida, como hermana, a España. Habana flash es el relato del viaje del autor a Cuba para investigar sus raíces recorriendo los mismos ligares que habitó su abuelo Remigio. Este libro, basado en experiencias muy reales pero novelado para evitar el castigo a los informadores cubanos, es recuperado años después por el periodista Marcelino Fernández Mallo que le añade un prefacio y un posfacio y le da su forma definitiva. Un recorrido por la Cuba menos turística que nos enseñará la estrecha conexión entre los cubanos y los españoles, un viaje que servirá para denunciar la represión causada por el régimen cubano y perpetuada por la aquiescencia de los propios habitantes de la isla pero, sobre todo, un viaje en el que se mezclarán las nostalgias del autor con otras muchas, ajenas. Razones para comprar la obra: - La novela, estructurada como un libro de viajes novelado, es testimonial y reivindicativa, contraria a la tendencia política dominante en Cuba. - Descubre numerosas historias de “indianos” y emigrantes pobres nunca contadas, amén de muchas vivencias desmitificadoras sobre la revolución tomando como fuente los testimonios silenciados de algunos revolucionarios. - El tema de la dictadura cubana y de los cambios políticos en la isla sigue estando de actualidad y sigue despertando el interés de numerosos lectores. - La obra contiene numerosas fotografías que ilustran el color local, muestran la conexión entre España y Cuba y sacan a la luz curiosidades históricas, como la foto del Che Guevara caracterizado de anciano, disfraz con el que entró en Bolivia. Una novela de la realidad o una muestra de realidad perfectamente novelada en la que se mezcla la historia de una familia con la historia de un país en una isla de una belleza extraordinaria pero de una realidad desalentadora. “Este libro de viajes de Xavier Alcalá es un hito sobre la recuperación de la memoria cubana y gallega en la isla, en una coyuntura que no ha superado la dictadura, principal causa del atraso material y cultural de Cuba.” (Web Arealibros) “Habana flash no va a dejar a nadie indiferente. Su sencilla crónica, su cálida emoción va a traernos recuerdos y suscitar reflexiones. No es un libro para criticar a nadie aunque lo haga más de una vez, no es un libro para alabar a nadie aunque lo haga: es un libro escrito con el corazón que requiere para su lectura un mojito y el mar de fondo para ponernos en situación.” (Web El placer de la lectura) “Xavier Alcalá es un narrador orgánico, vital, que explora, escucha -tal vez más de lo que espera-, recuerda, contextualiza, relaciona y concluye. Pero concluye para empezar de nuevo, para escribir contra el pesar del regreso o, quizá, sobre todo, contra la falta de tiempo.” (Blog Vena literaria)

From Bauhaus to Dada, from Virginia Woolf to John Dos Passos, the Modernist movement revolutionized the way we perceive, portray, and participate in the world. This landmark anthology is a comprehensive documentary resource for the study of Modernism, bringing together more than 150 key essays, articles, manifestos, and other writings of the political and aesthetic avant-garde between 1840 and 1950. By favoring short extracts over lengthier originals, the editors cover a remarkable range and variety of modernist thinking. Included are not just the familiar high modernist landmarks such as Gustave Flaubert, Ezra Pound, and James Joyce, but also a diverse representation from the sciences, politics, philosophy, and the arts, including Charles Darwin, Thorstein Veblen, W. E. B. Du Bois, Isadora Duncan, John Reed, Adolf Hitler, and Sergei Eisenstein. Another welcome feature is a substantial selection of hard-to-find manifestos from the many modernist movements, among them futurism, cubism, Dada, surrealism, and anarchism.

Here is a major work by a Chilean poet thought by many to be the most brilliant and important new voice in the Spanish language. In its first American edition, this poetry is presented in Spanish and Enlgish, so that readers of both languages may listed to Zurita's voice. Anteparadise can be read as a creative response, an act of resistance by a young artist to the violence and suffering during and after the 1973 coup that toppled the democratically elected Allende government. Zurita thus follows the example of several Latin American pets such as the Peruvian César Vallejo and Chilean Nobel laureate Pablo Neruda, sharing their passion and urgency, but his voice is unique.

As the first book to analyze the work of Fanon as an existential-phenomenological of human sciences and liberation philosopher, Gordon deploys Fanon's work to illuminate how the "bad faith" of European science and civilization have philosophically stymied the project of liberation. Fanon's body of work serves as a critique of European science and society, and shows the ways in which the project of "truth" is compromised by Eurocentric artificially narrowed scope of humanity--a circumstance to which he refers as the crisis of European Man. In his examination of the roots of this crisis, Gordon explores the problems of historical salvation and the dynamics of oppression, the motivation behind contemporary European obstruction of the advancement of a racially just world, the forms of anonymity that pervade racist theorizing and contribute to "seen invisibility," and the reasons behind the impossibility of a nonviolent transition from colonialism and neocolonialism to postcolonialism.

Latin American theatre is among the most innovative in the world today. The period 1965 1970 was one of intense theatrical production in the region. Dozens of major playwrights and collective theaters produced hundreds of highly original plays. This was also a period of profound ideological and sociopolitical transformation. Hopes for Latin American self-definition and self-determination after centuries of colonization and foreign exploitation began to crumble, while the right-wing backlash produced a politics of terror. In this dynamic study, Diana Taylor proposes that, for all the diversity of peoples, languages, and cultural images in Latin America, the effects of crisis on the region s theatre are surprisingly uniform. As a cultural subsystem, theatre is both a product of and a commentary on the making and dismantling of society at large. Theatre of Crisis is an important source of information for Latin Americanists as well as theatre specialists and literary critics interested in this virtually unexplored field.

"Approaching his fiftieth birthday, the narrator in "My Two Worlds" is wandering in an unfamiliar Brazilian city, in search of a park. A walker by inclination and habit, he has decided to explore the city after attending a literary conference--he was invited following the publication of his most recent novel, although, as he has been informed via anonymous e-mail, the novel is not receiving good reviews. Initially thwarted by his inability to transpose the two-dimensional information of the map onto the impassable roads and dead-ends of the three-dimensional city, once he finds the park the narrator begins to see his own thoughts, reflections, and memories mirrored in the landscape of the park and its inhabitants. Chejfec's "My Two Worlds"--an extraordinary meditation on experience, writing and space--is at once descriptively inventive and preternaturally familiar, a novel that challenges the limitations of the genre"--Provided by publisher.
