Con más de tres millones de ejemplares vendidos, El último Catón se ha convertido en la novela más relevante hasta el momento de Matilde Asensi y, sin duda, en una de las obras de referencia de la narrativa española. Desde el archivo secreto de la ciudad del Vaticano, la hermana Ottavia Salina, paleógrafa de prestigio internacional, se enfrenta a un extraño enigma: descifrar los tatuajes aparecidos en el cadáver de un etíope. Con la ayuda de un capitán de la guardia suiza y un arqueólogo de Alejandría, Ottavia tendrá que descubrir quién está detrás del robo en las iglesias de todo el mundo de las reliquias de la Vera Cruz, la cruz de Cristo. Siete pruebas basadas en el purgatorio de la Divina comedia de Dante Alighieri tienen las llaves para abrir las puertas. La expiación de los siete pecados capitales se realizará en las siete ciudades que ostentan la fama de practicarlos: Roma por su soberbia, Rávena por su envidia, Jerusalén por su ira, Atenas por su pereza, Constantinopla por su avaricia, Alejandría por su gula y Antioquía por su lujuria.

That's what the main characters of "The Last Cato", Ottavia Salina and Farag Boswell, will have to find out, putting their lives at risk yet again to solve a mystery that begins in the first century AD.

THE CLASSIC THRILLER FROM #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR FREDERICK FORSYTH “The Day of the Jackal makes such comparable books such as The Manchurian Candidate and The Spy Who Came in from the Cold seem like Hardy Boy mysteries.”—The New York Times The Jackal.

An assassin with a contract to kill the world's most heavily guarded man. One man with a rifle who can change the course of history. One man whose mission is so secretive not even his employers know his name. And as the minutes count down to the final act of execution, it seems that there is no power on earth that can stop the Jackal.

"The chapters in the book read like interconnected stories, bolstered by Zinner's outstanding (mostly color) pictures--over 100 in total. Though several references place the book in current times, it conjures up the grittier bygone era of Lou Reed and Debbie Harry, who merits a passing mention...An intriguing volume, particularly for those looking to party all night without leaving their living room." --Publishers Weekly "Enjoy Lipez's spare prose and dry wit, framed by Zinner's sly photograpy...A boozy, grungy, alt-rock fable that might as well have a soundtrack by The Replacements." --Kirkus Reviews When Sam, a bartender in New York, hears that his ex, Vicki, his one true love, has quit AA and is out drinking again, he embarks on a quest to find her. Sam and his sidekick Francis trek from dive bars to gay bars to rocker bars--encountering skinheads, party promoters, underage drug dealers, and dominatrixes--but they are always one step behind Vicki. It begins to seem like 131 different things are keeping the lovers apart. Before the night is over, Sam will have to wrestle with what he is really looking for. Nick Zinner--who plays guitar in the three-time Grammy-nominated band Yeah Yeah Yeahs--provides the visual framework for this inventive novella with his intimate photography. Known for his essays and music writing for Noisey, Vice, and Penthouse, Zachary Lipez brings his pithy, multilayered, and self-deprecating voice to this debut work of fiction. The prose and photography are tied together in a playful taxonomic scheme by editor and art director Stacy Wakefield, the author of the novel The Sunshine Crust Baking Factory. The three artists have collaborated on four previous books, most recently Please Take Me Off the Guest List.

A compelling new novel that combines past and present in a riveting search for the source of the Book of Genesis itself. In her provocative second novel, Spanish author Julia Navarro takes readers on an exhilarating journey across centuries and continents, as an upstart archeologist and a murderous group of conspirators vie for a treasure that will rewrite history–an explosive account of the world’s creation recorded millennia ago by a humble scribe onto the legendary Bible of Clay. Moving back and forth through time, from the tense months preceding the contemporary war in Iraq, to ancient Mesopotamia, to the atrocities of the last century, this tale of vengeance, obsession, and the wholesale plundering of the ancient world’s most priceless treasures is populated by an international cast of political opportunists, ruthless killers, and unsullied seekers of truth. The Bible of Clay is historical fiction at its richest, a sweeping saga that challenges at once both conventional geopolitics and the very foundations of modern religion. From the Hardcover edition.

This volume, which includes essays on Catalonia, the Basque country, Galicia, and literature written by African immigrants, focuses on issues of "difference" that are at the center of current debates in Spain and elsewhere--the emergence of minoritized literatures, multilingualism and identity, new relationships between culture and institutions, the negotiation of historical memories, the connections between migrations and the redefinition of nationhood, and the impact of global trends on local symbolic systems.
