¿Qué haríamos si supiéramos cuándo vamos a morir? Benvenuto Franco, un zapatero y emigrante italiano que ha americanizado su nombre por el de Ben Frank, amargado por las deudas y la pérdida de su esposa, mata en una pelea de bar al único hijo de Tonio Lupo, un temido capo de la mafia neoyorquina. De nada le sirve el ser condenado, Lupo le lanza una "maledizione": sus tres hijos serán asesinados cuando cumplan la edad de cuarenta y dos años, la que tenía el suyo al morir. Le encomienda su venganza a un sicario, Peppe Terranova. Los hijos de Frank, como los tres cerditos del cuento, construyen sus defensas para evitar ser asesinados: acumulando una fortuna para pagarse la seguridad, refugiándose como artista en el glamour de Hollywood para hacerse invulnerable, cambiando de identidad... Pero, ¿podrán sobrevivir a la maldición? ¿Podrán evitar su cita fatal con el destino? Situada en la primera mitad del siglo XX, con notas de jazz de fondo y referencias históricas a la ley seca, el cine mudo, el colonialismo, el fascismo..., Apostolos Doxiadis construye en "Tres cerditos" una absorbente novela de intriga y de aventuras, que es además una original reflexión con tintes de tragedia griega sobre el destino, la suerte y la libre elección. Una fábula en clave moderna sobre la eterna cuestión de cómo poder engañar a la muerte.

Three brothers. One mafia curse. A gripping mafia thriller, at once a suspenseful crime adventure and ingenious fable Ben Frank has blood on his hands. He knows that he has killed a man in a bar-room brawl. He knows that as an Italian immigrant in turn-of-the-century New York, life is tough. But what he doesn’t know is that the victim’s father, a Mafia boss, will settle a curse, a ‘maledizione’, on Frank’s family; that the shoemaker’s three sons will each die in their forty-second year. Following the varying fortunes of the shoemaker’s sons – Al, Nick and Leo Frank – as well as their nemesis, a gangster by the name of ‘Terranova’, Three Little Pigs grows into a dazzling meditation on chance, destiny, choice and their consequences. At once a gripping thriller and an investigation of character and fate, this is a revenge tragedy written by a master at the very peak of his powers. Can the brothers beat the curse? From Apostolos Doxiadis, author of Logicomix, comes a unique and completely absorbing crime novel, sure to appeal to fans of Mario Puzo, Don DeLillo and Carl Hiaasen. "Brilliantly entertaining and suspenseful - imagine the Brothers Grimm crossed with Guys and Dolls." Bestselling author Tom Holland

George Orwell’s 1984 takes on new life with extraordinary relevance and renewed popularity. “Orwell saw, to his credit, that the act of falsifying reality is only secondarily a way of changing perceptions. It is, above all, a way of asserting power.”—The New Yorker In 1984, London is a grim city in the totalitarian state of Oceania where Big Brother is always watching you and the Thought Police can practically read your mind. Winston Smith is a man in grave danger for the simple reason that his memory still functions. Drawn into a forbidden love affair, Winston finds the courage to join a secret revolutionary organization called The Brotherhood, dedicated to the destruction of the Party. Together with his beloved Julia, he hazards his life in a deadly match against the powers that be. Lionel Trilling said of Orwell’s masterpiece, “1984 is a profound, terrifying, and wholly fascinating book. It is a fantasy of the political future, and like any such fantasy, serves its author as a magnifying device for an examination of the present.” Though the year 1984 now exists in the past, Orwell’s novel remains an urgent call for the individual willing to speak truth to power.

A seashell and a sealed letter form a tenuous connection to a forbidden wartime romance 1937. Simon’s Town is a vibrant and diverse community in a picturesque part of the Union of South Africa, with a Royal Navy port at the town’s heart. Louise Ahrendts, daughter of a shipbuilder, nurtures the dream of becoming a nurse and in a world of unwritten, unspoken rules about colour, she has the strength to make it a reality. As the port becomes a hub of activity following the outbreak of the Second World War, Louise crosses paths with a man she is determined to be with – despite all the obstacles life and conflict throw in their way. But when a new troubled moment of history dawns, can they find their way back to each other?

Este es un libro realmente extraordinario: la obra más original y madura de Richard J. Evans. Definirlo como una historia de Europa entre la caída de Napoleón y el estallido de la primera guerra mundial resulta insuficiente; porque lo que Evans nos ofrece es una apasionante interpretación de la formación del mundo moderno, a través de una serie de ventanas que no sólo se abren sobre un panorama de gobiernos, guerras y revoluciones, sino que nos describen el cambio de la sociedad (la emancipación de los siervos, la formación de la clase obrera...), la conquista de la naturaleza, la expresión de las emociones... Hasta llegar a la época en que los conflictos internos y la rivalidad entre las potencias imperiales condujo al estallido de la Gran Guerra. Evans construye con estos materiales un relato fascinante, puntuado por las vidas de una serie de personajes arrastrados por las corrientes de su tiempo.
