"Cities of the World. World Cities."
Italo Calvino says that the delight you take
in a city is not through the wonders it offers but in the answer it gives to a
personal question. I remember the moment when I first said aloud “This is where
I want to live.” Barcelona became an ultimate destina...

Set in a small town in tropical Australia and narrated by the child Rora, the seven stories of 'All Those Wars' evoke new and surprising facets of dramatic events from the first half of the Twentieth Century—the two World Wars and the Spanish Civil War. Rora's stories throw into bold relief an assortment of displaced characters: the rueful veteran of Gallipoli; the flamboyant Elvala and Nando, come from Italy to build a new life; the Polish count who studied piano with Paderewski; the wise circus dwarfs; Jimmy, the aborigine yardman at the Convent; the Irish and Italian families who own the sugar cane farms around the town; Rora's own family, immigrants from northern Spain. As the child astutely assesses the people about her, she begins to see life itself as something of a war.

Gloria Montero's award-winning 'Frida K.--A Dialogue for a Single Actress' takes place on the day of Frida's first and only solo exhibition in her native Mexico. As Frida, devastated by poor health, prepares not only for her exhibition but for her approaching death she rages about what her life has been in an ongoing dialogue with Death itself. Her tormented marriage to muralist Diego Rivera, his many infidelities, her own affairs with Trotsky and others, are all told against a background of the fashionable art scenes of Paris and New York, the Mexican Revolution and the Spanish Civil War. In this ruthless encounter with her own end, Frida reveals how a life of crippling pain has been transformed into paintings of terrifying power. The book includes photos from different productions.

La premiada FRIDA K. de Gloria Montero tiene lugar el día de la primera y única exposición individual de Frida en su México natal. Mientras Frida, devastada por la mala salud, prepara no sólo para su exposición sino para su propio fin, protesta contra lo que ha sido su vida en un apasionado diálogo con la Muerte misma. Su matrimonio atormentado con el muralista Diego Rivera, las continuas infidelidades de él y sus propias aventuras con Trotsky y otros, se cuentan en el contexto del ambiente artístico de París y Nueva York, la Revolución Mexicana y la Guerra Civil española. En este despiadado encuentro con su propia muerte, Frida revela cómo una vida de dolor se ha transformado en pinturas de imponente poder. El libro incluye fotos de distintas producciones de la obra.

Aurora, una mujer australiana nieta de emigrantes asturianos, retrocede a las décadas de 1930 y 1940 para rememorar vivencias de su infancia, protagonizadas por personajes influidos por tres conflictos bélicos: las dos Guerras Mundiales y, entre ellas, la Guerra Civil española. Los recuerdos de la protagonista, salpicados de un misterio ancestral, nos transportan mediante siete relatos a Queensland, en el nordeste australiano, y nos permiten descubrir las claves de una sociedad, lejana y en proceso de consolidación, a través de unos ojos ingenuos que nos resultan muy próximos.

Las estremecedoras experiencias de Mar Álvarez, fotógrafa de guerra formada en Canadá, nos empujan hasta el epicentro de conflictos como los de Camboya, Irán, Timor, el Líbano o los Balcanes. El horror bélico captado por su valiente retina y su hábil cámara fotográfica la llevarán a cuestionarse la razón de su propia existencia, condicionada también por el amor a dos hombres que conviven en su cuerpo y en su corazón, el enigmático periodista croata Nik Tesla y su propio padre, el gran fotógrafo antifranquista Juan Álvarez. Punto de fuga no es una novela sobre la guerra, sino sobre el combate contra el horror, sobre la intensa búsqueda de una fotografía aparentemente imposible: la del despertar de las conciencias, la de la sensatez humana, la de la paz.
