Acompaña a Coraline y déjate transportar al mundo de fantasía y terror creado por el premiado autor Neil Gaiman.

El libro en que se basó la película.


«Damas y caballeros, niñas y niños, pónganse en pie y aplaudan: Coraline es una obra maestra.» --Philip Pullman, The Guardian

Al día siguiente de mudarse de casa, Coraline explora las catorce puertas de su nuevo hogar. Trece se pueden abrir con normalidad, pero la decimocuarta está cerrada y tapiada. Cuando por fin consigue abrirla, Coraline se encuentra con un pasadizo secreto que la conduce a otra casa tan parecida a la suya que resulta escalofriante.

Sin embargo, hay ciertas diferencias que llaman su atención: la comida es más rica, los juguetes son tan desconocidos como maravillosos y, sobre todo, hay otra madre y otro padre que quieren que Coraline se quede con ellos, se convierta en su hija y no se marche nunca. Pronto Coraline se da cuenta de que, tras los espejos, hay otros niños que han caído en la trampa. Son como almas perdidas, y ahora ella es su única esperanza de salvación. Pero para rescatarlos tendrá también que recuperar a sus verdaderos padres, y cumplir así el desafío que le permitirá volver a su vida anterior.

But there's another mother there, and another father, and they want her to stay and be their little girl. They want to change her and never let her go.

Coraline will have to fight with all her wit and courage if she is to save herself and return to her ordinary life.

    Things put underground in New Orleans don't often stay there. Even things that should - like bodies, and secrets.

    How do you fight an enemy you can't see that can kill on a whim? In 1820s New Orleans, on the eve of her twenty-first birthday, Zéolie Cheval discovers the mangled body of her father murdered in his bed and a maniacal voice haunting the recesses of her mind. When the priest sent to comfort her is killed while the house is swarming with police, Zéolie becomes entangled in a web of mystery that takes her from the French Quarter, to the Ursuline Convent in the Ninth Ward, and deep into the Louisiana swamps.

    Officer Louis Saucier, who is losing his heart to Zéolie and his grip on logical reality, helps her find the pieces to her puzzle. The mother superior of the Ursulines offers assistance from a mediumistic nun and a voodoo priestess, blurring the lines between the spiritual and the supernatural.

    After opening the family crypt to find it uninhabited, Zéolie realizes that her father lied about her mother's death - amongst other things. Now, Zéolie must come to terms with magic she inherited from her grandmother and the price that comes with it.

    Step inside the magic and mystery of the 1820s French Quarter to see if an unlikely menagerie can help Zéolie take down a murderous maniac while she shields the officer she loves. Can she harness powers she didn't know she had? Or, will she make the ultimate sacrifice?

    The crew of a French reconnaissance plane during WW1 consisted of just two men: a pilot and an observer. Two such men are Jean Herbillon and Claude Maury. Herbillon's dreams of glory as an air ace have been dashed after only a few months at the front; Maury suffers from a broken heart--his only hope is that his exploits as a pilot will win back his lost love. Together the two form one of the best crews in the air, fighting in the first aerial conflict in history--one in which a combatant can count his life expectancy in weeks. The pressure of war forges a strong bond between the two flyers, but can it survive the discovery that they are both in love with the same woman?

    Joseph Kessel's autobiographical novel is a staggering tale of courage, brotherhood and loss.

    Un hombre regresa al pueblo donde ocurrió un asesinato desconcertante 27 años atrás, con la determinación de descubrir la verdad.

    Todos parecen estar de acuerdo en que Bayardo San Román, sólo unas horas después de su matrimonio con la bella Angela Vicario, la devuelve por deshonrada a la casa paterna. La atribulada familia fuerza a la novia a revelar el nombre de su primer amante; y los hermanos gemelos de ella anuncian su intención de matar a Santiago Nasar por haber deshonrado a su hermana.

    Sin embargo, si todos sabían que se iba a cometer un asesinato, por qué nadie trató de impedirlo? Cuanto más se sabe de este asunto, menos se comprende, y cuando la historia al fin se precipita a su inesperada conclusión, una sociedad entera --no sólo un par de asesinos-- está siendo enjuiciada.

    ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

    A man returns to the town where a baffling murder took place 27 years earlier, determined to get to the bottom of the story.

    Just hours after marrying the beautiful Angela Vicario, everyone agrees, Bayardo San Roman returned his bride in disgrace to her parents. Her distraught family forced her to name her first lover; and her twin brothers announced their intention to murder Santiago Nasar for dishonoring their sister.

    Yet if everyone knew the murder was going to happen, why did no one intervene to stop it? The more that is learned, the less is understood, and as the story races to its inexplicable conclusion, an entire society--not just a pair of murderers--is put on trial.

    Cruel tales From The Thirteenth Floor

    Cruel tales From The Thirteenth Floor

    More Info
    In sixteen ferocious short stories, French author Luc Lang encapsulates the brutality of everyday life. Each tale is an admixture of tragedy, comedy, ridicule, and pain. Compassion lurks somewhere, perhaps, but pity is conspicuous by its absence. Lang's curt, agitated prose disassembles daily life with a swift, unflinching hand and examines it with a sharp, analytic eye. Skinning quotidian moments to bare, raw impulses, confusions, and the agonies underneath, the stories in Cruel Tales from the Thirteenth Floor show the mundane grind of the everyday forces that are fueled by cruel calculation and amoral happenstance and shot through with bizarre surprise. The results are at once coldly comic and powerfully tragic. Interpreting human interactions as a series of precise jabs and desperate flailings, Cruel Tales from the Thirteenth Floor tells truths about the darker sides of our potential and our well-meaning urges dimmed by chance. Luc Lang is an award-winning French author of many works, including Voyage sur la ligne d'horizon; Furies; and Les Indiens. He has also published the startling autobiographical work 11 septembre mon amour. He teaches aesthetics at the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux Arts de Paris et Cergy. Donald Nicholson-Smith has translated noir or noirish fiction by Jean-Patrick Manchette and Thierry Jonquet, and, with Alyson Waters, Yasmina Khadra's Cousin K (Nebraska, 2013). Born in Manchester, England, he is a longtime resident of New York City.

    Los cuentos de Bolaño condensan en el breve espacio que caracteriza las obras del género todo su universo literario, uno de los más rupturistas y personales de la literatura contemporánea en español: la literatura que lo impregna todo; la sexualidad; las vidas de seres que pese a ser comunes, transcurren entre lo cotidiano y lo extraordinario; la rebeldía de aquellos que viven en la estrecha frontera que separa el sistema de la marginalidad; el viaje como huida pero también como forma de vida; la necesidad desevelar lo incierto; la juventud; la violencia y las tramas policiales; el arte como obsesión, y la búsqueda continuada de un espacio propio en un lugar ajeno.

    Pertenencientes a los títulos Putas asesinas, El gaucho insufrible, Llamadas telefónicas y El secreto del mal, y escritas durante toda su vida, las piezas narrativas que componen este libro se enriquecen y adquieren un significado diferente en el diálogo que establecen entre ellas.

    ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

    In the brief space of his short stories, Bolaño manages to condense his entire literary universe, one of the most disruptive and personal of contemporary Spanish literature: the literature that permeates everything; sexuality; the lives of characters that despite being common, live amongst the everyday and the extraordinary; the rebellion of those who live on the narrow border that separates the system from marginality; travel as an escape but also as a way of life; the need to reveal the uncertain; youth; violence and police plots; art as an obsession, and the continued search for one's own space in a foreign place.

    Belonging to the collections: Murdering Whores, The Insufferable Gaucho, Last Evenings on Earth, and The Secret of Evil, the pieces that make up this book become more enriched and acquire a different meaning as they establish a dialogue amongst them.

    «DURANTE ESTOS años los lectores me habéis dado tanto que me sentía en deuda con vosotros. Por eso he decidido yo también entregaros una parte de mí. Estos textos que os traigo han modelado de alguna manera mi forma de ser. Son pequeños cuentos, ya casi perdidos, de grandes autores que he decidido adaptar a los tiempos que corren. He modificado personajes, situaciones, el lenguaje... pero la esencia sigue siendo la misma: esa que nos ayuda a entender el mundo.» Eloy Moreno

    "Through these years, you readers have given me so much that I felt indebted to you. That is why I have decided to also give you a part of me. These texts that I now offer here have somehow modeled my way of life. They are short stories, almost forgotten, of great authors that I have decided to adapt to the times in which we live. I have modified characters, situations, language ... but the essence remains the same: that which helps us understand the world." -Eloy Moreno
