Роман о любви. Его автор — знаменитая писательница Надежда Александровна Тэффи (Лохвицкая), чья слава до революции была поистине оглушительной… В конце 1920-­х годов, уже живя в Париже, она написала этот роман (никогда, кстати, не печатавшийся в СССР) с «закрученным» сюжетом, с преступлениями, парижскими ресторанами и дансингами, наркотиками, написанный как бы под звуки аргентинского танго — популярнейшего танца той эпохи…

Written when Ernest Hemingway was thirty years old and lauded as the best American novel to emerge from World War I, is the unforgettable story of an American ambulance driver on the Italian front and his passion for a beautiful English nurse. Set against the looming horrors of the battlefield—weary, demoralized men marching in the rain during the German attack on Caporetto; the profound struggle between loyalty and desertion—this gripping, semiautobiographical work captures the harsh realities of war and the pain of lovers caught in its inexorable sweep. Ernest Hemingway famously said that he rewrote the ending to thirty-­nine times to get the words right.

Poco puede decirse del Quijote que no se haya dicho ya. Obra culmen de la literatura universal y primera novela moderna, Cervantes ideó la historia de un hidalgo aldeano que enloquece de tanto leer novelas de caballerías y, como buen caballero andante, sale a los caminos con el noble afán de ayudar a los necesitados. Así, en compañía del afable y crédulo Sancho Panza, don Quijote participa en una serie de delirantes aventuras que provocarán la hilaridad del lector, ya que la vida que reproduce Cervantes es alegre, graciosa y dramática, a la vez que sana y optimista, a pesar de las vicisitudes de su existencia. Sin embargo, el Quijote es mucho más, pues constituye una lección magistral sobre la grandeza y la miseria de la condición humana. La edición de Don Quijote de la Mancha que aquí ofrecemos ha sido preparada de modo que a través de una serie de fragmentos, sin leer todo el Quijote, pueda captarse el sentido y significado de toda la obra. Para ello, cada texto va precedido de . . .

Following the death of a friend, the poet and pets' mortician Dennis Barlow finds himself entering the artificial Hollywood paradise of the Whispering Glades Memorial Park. Within its golden gates, death, American-­style, is wrapped up and sold like a package holiday-­and Dennis gets drawn into a bizarre love triangle with Aimée Thanatogenos, a naïve Californian corpse beautician, and Mr. Joyboy, a master of the embalmer's art. Waugh's dark and savage satire on the Anglo-­American cultural divide depicts a world where reputation, love, and death cost a very great deal.
