Explanation of the Book:

From the acclaimed, best-selling author Adam Hochschild, a sweeping history of the Spanish Civil War, told through a dozen characters, including Ernest Hemingway and George Orwell: a tale of idealism, heartbreaking suffering, and a noble cause that failed For three crucial years in the 1930s, the Spanish Civil War dominated headlines in America and around the world, as volunteers flooded to Spain to help its democratic government fight off a fascist uprising led by Francisco Franco and aided by Hitler and Mussolini. Today we're accustomed to remembering the war through Hemingway’s For Whom the Bell Tolls and Robert Capa’s photographs. But Adam Hochschild has discovered some less familiar yet far more compelling characters who reveal the full tragedy and importance of the war: a fiery nineteen-year-old Kentucky woman who went to wartime Spain on her honeymoon, a Swarthmore College senior who was the first American casualty in the battle for Madrid, a pair of fiercely partisan, rivalrous New York Times reporters who covered the war from opposites sides, and a swashbuckling Texas oilman with Nazi sympathies who sold Franco almost all his oil — at reduced prices, and on credit. It was in many ways the opening battle of World War II, and we still have much to learn from it. Spain in Our Hearts is Adam Hochschild at his very best.

Explanation of the Book:

"Spain in the Heart is a book that comes back to haunt us every time that the pentagons of the world start the motors of their death machines and proceed to invade, massacre and burn an innocent people. Now we open it once again, and discover that it hasn't changed, that it is still unyielding, ample, made of multiple voices gloriously singing as the milicianos march on". -- Fernanco Alegria"My book, Spain in the Heart was printed (during the Spanish Civil War) in a unique way. I believe few books, in the extraordinary history of so many books, have had such a curious birth and destiny.The soldiers learned to set type. But there was no paper. They found an old paper mill and decided to make it there. A strange mixture was concocted, in the midst of falling bombs, in the midst of battle. They threw everything they could get their hands on into the mill, from an enemy flag to a bloody tunic of a Moorish soldier. And in spite of the unusual materials used and the total inexperience of its manufacturers, the paper turned out to be very beautiful...My book was the pride of those men who had worked to bring out my poetry in defiance of death, and I learned that many carried copies of the book in their knapsacks, instead of their own food and clothing. With their knapsacks over their shoulders, they set out on the long march to France. The endless column walking to exile was bombed hundreds of times. Soldiers fell and the books were strewn over the road...The last copies of this impassioned book that was born and perished in the midst of fierce fighting were burned in a bonfire". -- Pablo Neruda, from Memoirs

Explanation of the Book:

A brilliant observer in the tradition of Adam Gopnik and Paul Theroux, Edward Lewine reveals a Spain few outsiders have seen. There's nothing more Spanish than bullfighting, and nothing less like its stereotype. For matadors and aficionados, it is not a blood sport but an art, an ancient subculture steeped in ritual, machismo, and the feverish attentions of fans and the press. Lewine explains Spain and the art of the bulls by spending a bullfighting season traveling Spanish highways with the celebrated matador Francisco Rivera Ordónez, following Fran, as he's known, through every region and social stratum. Fran's great-grandfather was a famous bullfighter and the inspiration for Hemingway's matador in The Sun Also Rises. Fran's father was also a star matador, until a bull took his life shortly before Fran's eleventh birthday. Fran is blessed and haunted by his family history. Formerly a top performer himself, Fran's reputation has slipped, and as the season opens he feels intense pressure to live up to his legacy amid tabloid scrutiny in the wake of his separation from his wife, a duchess. But Fran perseveres through an eventful season of early triumph, serious injury, and an unlikely return to glory.

Explanation of the Book:

The Catalan Kitchen is a celebration of eighty-five authentic and traditional dishes from Spain's culinary heart. The Catalonia region is situated on the west coast of the Mediterranean and blessed with one of the richest food cultures in Europe. Although Catalonia is still geographically and politically connected to Spain, Catalans consider themselves independent with their own language, history, culture, and cuisine. Its food is considered unique in Spain, and it is home to one of the highest concentrations of Michelin-starred restaurants in the world. Catalan cuisine does not center around tapas, and although pintxos do feature heavily, they are not the mainstay of the region and most dishes are larger, stand-alone meals. Dishes are heavily influenced by pork and fresh seafood, with a focus on fresh, seasonal produce that varies from recipes as simple as crushed tomatoes smeared on bread to hearty, slowcooked stews. Famous dishes include calçots--large salad onions cooked on a coal barbecue and then dipped into nutty and addictive Romesco sauce, a unique paella made without saffron and the addition of vermicelli noodles, myriad types of Catalan sausage served with white beans, sauces such as aioli and picada, and multiple pastries and desserts including crème Catalan (a version of crème brûlée). Beautifully packaged with stunning location and food photography, The Catalan Kitchen is the ultimate cookbook for lovers of Spanish and Mediterranean food.

Explanation of the Book:

Why don't' you...run away with the gypsies? Ten-hour shifts in a high-end department store and catering to snooty customers...Nellie Bennett's life wasn't supposed to turn out this way. But maybe all she needs to do is infuse a little passion into her routine—through flamenco dance lessons, for instance. What Nellie doesn't realize is that flamenco is not just a dance—it's a way of life that seems much more enticing than her depressing retail gig. So she packs her suede dance shoes and leaves everything she knows behind, flying halfway around the world to seek the authentic experience in Seville, where the dark-eyed gypsy boys and mouth-watering tapas are enough to make Nellie want to stay in Spain forever. And why shouldn't she? Only in Spain is a foot-stomping, full-on firecracker of a memoir—crackling with energy, food, dance, gypsies, and love—that will capture your heart with the first "Olé!" "A vivid, entertaining memoir...Bennett had me itching to pack my bag and join her."—Ann Vanderhoof, author of An Embarrassment of Mangoes and The Spice Necklace

Explanation of the Book:

"I don't know where it comes from," says Sahara of her poetry, "but it feels like I swallow the words down from the sky and they come up again as poems, already complete and entire." This nine-year-old girl has been creating poems since the age of four. Before she even learned how to write, the young poet had figured out how to dictate her poems into the telephone answering machine so that they would not be lost. Sahara has traveled the world with her mother, a professional photographer, and her poems and illustrations reflect her experiences in Thailand, where she met with Buddhist monks and nuns and studied meditation and music; in India, where she met Mother Teresa; in Bali, where she observed healing ceremonies; and in Australia, where she was introduced to "The Dreaming" by aboriginal elders. Her poems have brought her international attention, drawing praise from influential writers and artists. Yet for all her accomplishments, this charming girl with a transcendent talent is as curious about the world and as filled with the joy of living and loving as any child can be. If There Would Be No Light represents an exciting new voice in American poetry and is destined to be an inspiration to children, parents, teachers, and poets.

Explanation of the Book:

'Above all, there was a belief in the revolution and the future, a feeling of having suddenly emerged into an era of equality and freedom.' In late 1936, the idealistic young George Orwell set out for Spain to join the Republican Army in its battle against the fascists. There he encountered a country in chaos. From the heady promises of revolutionary Barcelona to the betrayals, logistical nightmares, and petty factional conflicts, Orwell describes the war in all its gruesome detail with his characteristic flair for language. A fascinating, deeply personal account of how a movement gave up its ideals in pursuit of a victory that never came, the Homage to Catalonia is a remarkable chronicle of the Spanish Civil War. ABOUT THE SERIES: Arcturus Essential Orwell presents George Orwell's most acclaimed fiction and non-fiction titles with striking contemporary cover-designs. These unique paperback editions are wonderful collectibles which celebrate one of the most important voices of the 20th century.

Available:
Release: 2013-03-26
Editor: Vintage
Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

Winner of the IMPAC Dublin Award, and widely considered Javier Marías's masterpiece, A Heart So White is a breathtaking novel about family secrets that chronicles the relentless power of the past. Juan knows little of the interior life of his father Ranz; but when Juan marries, he begins to consider the past anew, and begins to ponder what he doesn't really want to know. Secrecy--its possible convenience, its price, and even its civility--hovers throughout the novel. A Heart So White becomes a sort of anti-detective story of human nature. Intrigue; the sins of the father; the fraudulent and the genuine; marriage and strange repetitions of violence: Marías elegantly sends shafts of inquisitory light into shadows and onto the costs of ambivalence.

Explanation of the Book:

Stolen Babies of Spain chronicles how and why baby stealing began in Spain just after the civil war of 1936-1939. This heartbreaking and tragic history of the worst, modern-day network of stolen babies pulls back a web of deceit and terror, uncovering pain, suffering, and, worse, organization and profit.Using more than three hundred interviews conducted by the authors, many of them exclusive, Greg Rabidoux and Mara Lencina reveal the personal stories of the adults who were stolen babies as they search for their biological parents and their true origins. The authors also shine a spotlight on the surviving parents who still to this day search for their babies that were stolen and sent away for illegal adoptions.In Stolen Babies of Spain: The Book, the authors also expose the role of the Catholic Church, General Francisco Franco and the Spanish government, and medical doctors and nurses such as the infamous Dr Eduardo Vela, in operating in a criminal network for decades that stole babies and sold them for profit, both in Spain and worldwide. Rabidoux, Lencina, and Vila take an in-depth look at the ongoing stealing and trafficking of babies and children worldwide and what, if anything, is being done to combat these basic, human rights violations and crimes. Fortunately, the work Rabidoux and Lencina did in finding families and those who had been stolen, to interview, also revealed heart-warming stories of the rare yet wonderful moments when stolen babies and their family are reunited. In conjunction with the award-winning documentary Stolen Babies of Spain, also from Rabidoux and Lencina, this fascinating and tragic hidden history is now, finally, revealed.

Explanation of the Book:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • From the author of The House of the Spirits, this epic novel spanning decades and crossing continents follows two young people as they flee the aftermath of the Spanish Civil War in search of a place to call home. “One of the most richly imagined portrayals of the Spanish Civil War to date, and one of the strongest and most affecting works in [Isabel Allende’s] long career.”—The New York Times Book Review NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY Esquire • Good Housekeeping • Parade In the late 1930s, civil war grips Spain. When General Franco and his Fascists succeed in overthrowing the government, hundreds of thousands are forced to flee in a treacherous journey over the mountains to the French border. Among them is Roser, a pregnant young widow, who finds her life intertwined with that of Victor Dalmau, an army doctor and the brother of her deceased love. In order to survive, the two must unite in a marriage neither of them desires. Together with two thousand other refugees, Roser and Victor embark on the SS Winnipeg, a ship chartered by the poet Pablo Neruda, to Chile: “the long petal of sea and wine and snow.” As unlikely partners, the couple embraces exile as the rest of Europe erupts in world war. Starting over on a new continent, they face trial after trial, but they will also find joy as they patiently await the day when they might go home. Through it all, their hope of returning to Spain keeps them going. Destined to witness the battle between freedom and repression as it plays out across the world, Roser and Victor will find that home might have been closer than they thought all along. A masterful work of historical fiction about hope, exile, and belonging, A Long Petal of the Sea shows Isabel Allende at the height of her powers. Praise for A Long Petal of the Sea “Both an intimate look at the relationship between one man and one woman and an epic story of love, war, family, and the search for home, this gorgeous novel, like all the best novels, transports the reader to another time and place, and also sheds light on the way we live now.”—J. Courtney Sullivan, author of Saints for All Occasions “This is a novel not just for those of us who have been Allende fans for decades, but also for those who are brand-new to her work: What a joy it must be to come upon Allende for the first time. She knows that all stories are love stories, and the greatest love stories are told by time.”—Colum McCann, National Book Award–winning author of Let the Great World Spin
