              In the quaint town of Nightfall, Oregon, it isn't the dark you should be afraid of-it's the girls. The Lost Boys meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer in this propulsive novel from the New York Times bestselling author of The Treatment. Theo and her brother, Marco, threw the biggest par...ty of the year. And got caught. Their punishment? Leave Arizona to spend the summer with their grandmother in the rainy beachside town of Nightfall, Oregon-population 846 souls. The small town is cute, when it's not raining, but their grandmother is superstitious and strangely antisocial. Upon their arrival she lays out the one house rule: always be home before dark. But Theo and Marco are determined to make the most of their summer, and on their first day they meet the enigmatic Minnow and her friends. Beautiful and charismatic, the girls have a magnetic pull that Theo and her brother can't resist. But Minnow and her friends are far from what they appear. And that one rule? Theo quickly realizes she should have listened to her grandmother. Because after dark, something emerges in Nightfall. And it doesn't plan to let her leave.

              Seven ingeniously reinvented fairy tales that play out with astonishing consequences in the modern world, from one of today's finest short story writers-MacArthur Genius Grant Fellow Kelly Link, bestselling author of the Pulitzer Prize finalist Get in Trouble Finding seeds of ins...piration in the Brothers Grimm, seventeenth-century French lore, and Scottish ballads, Kelly Link spins classic fairy tales into utterly original stories of seekers-characters on the hunt for love, connection, revenge, or their own sense of purpose. In The White Cat's Divorce, an aging billionaire sends his three sons on a series of absurd goose chases to decide which will become his heir. In The Girl Who Did Not Know Fear, a professor with a delicate health condition becomes stranded for days in an airport hotel after a conference, desperate to get home to her wife and young daughter, and in acute danger of being late for an appointment that cannot be missed. In Skinder's Veil, a young man agrees to take over a remote house-sitting gig for a friend. But what should be a chance to focus on his long-avoided dissertation instead becomes a wildly unexpected journey, as the house seems to be a portal for otherworldly travelers-or perhaps a door into his own mysterious psyche. Twisting and winding in astonishing ways, expertly blending realism and the speculative, witty, empathetic, and never predictable-these stories remind us once again of why Kelly Link is incomparable in the art of short fiction.

              From the New York Times bestselling author of the Sisters Grimm and NERDS comes the third and final book in the time-jumping, universe-skipping, action-packed middle-grade series with equal parts humor and heart! After his adventures through time, Finn returns home to a world he ...doesn't recognize. Changing the past has created an all-new present, one in which he and his friends never vanquished the Plague. Now the giant bugs rule Earth from their spaceship! What's an intergalactic traveler to do? The answer is obvious. Finn, Lincoln, and Julep must defeat the Plague. Again. But how? Julep and Lincoln don't remember Finn or their friendships. In fact, they've changed just as much as the world itself has, and they want nothing to do with his dangerous plan to save humankind. Finn's plan? Find his father, Asher Foley, who is trapped on a microscopic world known as the Subatomic. Using a space-age slip-and-slide, Finn and his confused former friends shrink themselves to enter this strange new world where nothing is as it seems, hoping to find his father, the one man who can put history, and the present, back together. It won't be easy. The Subatomic is ruled by an evil menace with an army of hulking robots under his command. Even worse, Finn's bitterest enemy, the Plague soldier Sin Kraven, is in pursuit. Can Finn find his father, save his friendships, and return to Earth in time to stop the Plague?

              La novela que creo un nuevo arquetipo en la literatura estadounidense y le valio a su autor el Premio Nobel de Literatura. En esta novela imprescindible de la narrativa americana, Sinclair Lewis nos presenta a George F. Babbit, un agente inmobiliario bullicioso, arrogante y siemp...re preocupado por su reputacion. Babbit es el epitome de una nueva figura en la literatura estadounidense: el conformista total, un personaje que piensa y siente lo mismo que la multitud. O eso quiere creer. En grandes escenas satiricas, lo vemos participar en reuniones, actos sociales y viajes de negocios que capturan toda la agitacion de la cultura comercial de su pais. Sin embargo, Lewis estudia tambien las grietas de su personalidad, y el retrato de sus dudas acaba mostrando la cara oculta de un periodo de la historia de Estados Unidos en que el mito de la prosperidad ilimitada estaba por dar paso a la era de la ansiedad. No conozco una novela americana que represente de manera tan precisa la America real . -H.L. Mencken ENGLISH DESCRIPTION The novel that created a new archetype in American literature and earned its author the Nobel Prize for Literature. It is a tale of the emptiness of materialism in the roaring twenties that applies today to those wanting a simpler life. A satirical novel about American culture and society that critiques the vacuity of middle-class life and the social pressure toward conformity. Prosperous and socially prominent, George Babbitt appears to have everything a man could wish: good health, a fine family, and a profitable business in a booming Midwestern city. But the middle-aged real estate agent is shaken from his self-satisfaction by a growing restlessness with the limitations of his life. When a personal crisis forces a reexamination of his values, Babbitt mounts a rebellion against social expectations - jeopardizing his reputation and business standing as well as his marriage. Widely considered Sinclair Lewis's greatest novel, this satire of the America

              The #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Party Crasher and Love Your Life returns with a festive Shopaholic adventure filled with holiday cheer and unexpected gifts. Sophie Kinsella keeps her finger on the cultural pulse, while leaving me giddy with laughter. -Jojo Moyes, ...author of The Giver of Stars and The Last Letter from Your Lover 'Tis the season for change and Becky Brandon (nee Bloomwood) is embracing it, returning from the States to live in the charming village of Letherby and working with her best friend, Suze, in the gift shop of Suze's stately home. Life is good, especially now that Becky takes time every day for mindfulness-even if that only means listening to a meditation tape while hunting down online bargains. But Becky still adores the traditions of Christmas: Her parents hosting, carols playing on repeat, her mother pretending she made the Christmas pudding, and the neighbors coming 'round for sherry in their terrible holiday sweaters. Things are looking cheerier than ever, until Becky's parents announce they're moving to ultra-trendy Shoreditch-unable to resist the draw of craft beer and smashed avocados-and ask Becky if she'll host this year. What could possibly go wrong? Becky's sister demands a vegan turkey, her husband insists that he just wants aftershave (again), and little Minnie needs a very specific picnic hamper: Surely Becky can manage all this, as well as the surprise appearance of an old boyfriend-turned-rock star and his pushy new girlfriend, whose motives are far from clear. But as the countdown to Christmas begins and her bighearted plans take an unexpected turn toward disaster, Becky wonders if chaos will ensue, or if she'll manage to bring comfort and joy to Christmas after all. Praise for Christmas Shopaholic Funny, charming, and the perfect read to get into the holiday spirit. -PopSugar Kinsella's popular heroine, Becky Bloomwood Brandon, is back for a delightful ode to shopping, in the engaging eighth Shopaholic novel, t

              The most enduring detectives in American crime fiction are back in this electrifying thriller of art and brutality from the #1 New York Times bestselling master of suspense. Los Angeles is a city of stark contrast, the palaces of the affluent coexisting uneasily with the hellhole...s of the mad and the needy. It is that shadow world and the violence it breeds that draw brilliant psychologist Dr. Alex Delaware and Detective Milo Sturgis into an unsettling case of altruism gone wrong. On a superficially lovely morning a woman shows up for work with her usual enthusiasm. She's the newly hired personal assistant to a handsome, wealthy photographer and is ready to greet her boss with coffee and good cheer. Instead, she finds him slumped in bed, shot to death. The victim had recently received rave media attention for his latest project: images of homeless people in their personal dream situations, elaborately costumed and enacting unfulfilled fantasies. There are some, however, who view the whole thing as nothing more than crass exploitation, citing token payments and the victim's avoidance of any long-term relationships with his subjects. Has disgruntlement blossomed into homicidal rage? Or do the roots of violence reach down to the victim's family-a clan, sired by an elusive billionaire, that is bizarre in its own right? Then new murders arise, and Alex and Milo begin peeling back layer after layer of intrigue and complexity, culminating in one of the deadliest threats they've ever faced.

              LA NUEVA NOVELA DE ARTURO PEREZ-REVERTE Un hombre, tres mujeres y una revolucion. Un viaje al corazon humano y a la aventura. Esta es la historia de un hombre, tres mujeres, una revolucion y un tesoro. La revolucion fue la de Mexico en tiempos de Emiliano Zapata y Francisco Villa.... El tesoro fueron quince mil monedas de oro de a veinte pesos de las denominadas maximilianos, robadas en un banco de Ciudad Juarez el 8 de mayo de 1911. El hombre se llamaba Martin Garret Ortiz y era un joven ingeniero de minas espanol. Todo empezo para el ese mismo dia, cuando desde su hotel oyo un primer disparo lejano. Salio a la calle para ver que ocurria y a partir de ese momento su vida cambio para siempre... Revolucion es mucho mas que una novela sobre los dramaticos acontecimientos que sacudieron la republica mexicana en el primer tercio del siglo XX. Es un relato de iniciacion y madurez a traves del caos, la lucidez y la violencia: el asombroso descubrimiento de las reglas ocultas que determinan el amor, la lealtad, la muerte y la vida. Toda la vida escuche en mi casa la historia de aquel amigo de mi bisabuelo, ingeniero de minas, que trabajo en Mexico en plena revolucion. Ese recuerdo remoto me ha aproximado a mi propia relacion con la aventura y me ha llevado a escribir esta historia. Es una novela de iniciacion y aprendizaje y es, de algun modo, mi propia biografia de juventud. Es mi Flecha de oro . -Arturo Perez-Reverte ENGLISH DESCRIPTION A NEW NOVEL BY ARTURO PEREZ-REVERTE One man, three women and a revolution.

              En el principio no era el Verbo. En el principio era el silencio y Dios padecia un tremendo bloqueo creativo: el famoso miedo frente al Universo en blanco. Emborronaba proyectos de Creacion, los arrugaba y los arrojaba al suelo. Estaba tan frustrado que sentia la tentacion de pla...giarse una gran obra ya creada. Y quiza lo hizo. Asi esta escrito en este ambiguo y misterioso libro. Todo esta contenido en sus paginas: todas las criaturas, todos los instantes, todas las religiones, todos los sentimientos. Si bien el lector no encontrara aqui las normas para llevar una vida recta, si hallara las instrucciones para hacer un Big Bang. Tambien asistira a una discusion entre Zeus, Quetzalcoatl y Shiva, al enfrentamiento entre el arcangel Metatron y la criatura Cthulhu, a una tragicomedia de particulas elementales y podra explorar la teoria de que el Universo no sea otra cosa mas que la reverberacion de la Gran Carcajada Cosmica. Algunos eruditos afirman que los textos que integran El Ambiguo Testamento pertenecen al profeta Fernando Rivera Calderon; otros exegetas aseguran que en realidad fueron escritos por diversos autores en epocas distintas: un musico de rock, un conductor de television, un actor de cabaret, un periodista, un poeta y otros autores no identificados. Tambien hay quienes opinan que son la obra de una muy concurrida personalidad multiple. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Fernando Rivera Calderon, Mexican writer and musician. One day, God appeared to him and asked him to write this book. And well, here it is. Any complaints, complain to God, not to the author. In the beginning, the Word didn't exist. In the beginning there was silence and God had a tremendous creator's block, that famous fear in the face of a blank universe. He sketched creative projects, crumpled every one and threw them away. He was so frustrated, he felt tempted to plagiarize a pre-existing creation. And maybe he did. It is thus written in this ambiguous and mysterious book. These pages contain it all,

              Octavio Paz fue uno de los escritores mas importantes de la lengua espanola del siglo XX. Su obra es una de las mas vastas y diversas de la literatura mexicana. Sin embargo, poco se ha escrito sobre el hombre detras de la efigie. Ese es el gran merito de este libro. Elena Poniato...wska revela al autor de Piedra de sol a la luz de la amistad que compartieron, valiendose de conversaciones, recuerdos, cartas y poemas, asi como de algunas reveladoras entrevistas acerca de la obra y el pensamiento del poeta. Este testamento amoroso, pero no por ello menos analitico, resulta asi una obra imprescindible para conocer a Octavio Paz y el contexto historico e intelectual en el que se desenvolvio. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Elena Poniatowska presents an intimate portrait of Octavio Paz based on conversations, memories, letters and snippets of poems. She tells the poet's story, offering her own version of their time together and also providing an overview of the Nobel Prize winner's career, poetry, philosophy and politics.
