    En Cinco esquinas, Mario Vargas Llosa crea un mural riquísimo en detalles y contrastes en el que personajes de muy distintos ambientes sociales se ven afectados por el pavor provocado por el terrorismo de Sendero Luminoso, el periodismo amarillista y la corrupción asociada a las esferas de poder durante el gobierno de Fujimori. La historia comienza cuando Rolando Garro, director de un semanario sensacionalista, intenta destruir la reputación de un exitoso ingeniero de minas con unas fotos en las que aparece en una situación comprometida. Todo se tambalea cuando la miseria moral se pone de manifiesto.

    In 1916, the Irish nationalist Roger Casement was hanged by the British government for treason. Casement had dedicated his life to improving the plight of oppressed peoples around the world. But when he dared to draw a parallel between the injustices he witnessed in African and American colonies and those committed by the British in Northern Ireland, he became involved in a cause that led to his imprisonment and execution. Ultimately, the scandals surrounding Casement's trial and eventual hanging marred his image to such a degree that his pioneering human rights work wasn't fully reexamined until the 1960s. Dream of the Celt is a fascinating fictional account of an extraordinary man in the original and dynamic style of Nobel Laureate Mario Vargas Llosa. Translated from the Spanish by Edith Grossman. 358p. Pap.

    Long out-of-print and considered one of the most important modern Spanish novels, often compared to the iconic stature of J.D. Salinger's 'Catcher in the Rye,' Carmen Laforet's debut novel 'Nada' returns in a new translation by Edith Grossman. Now inducted into the literary canon of the Modern Library, 'Nada' follows the coming-of-age story o Andrea, an young orphan (loosely based on the author) who fallsin with a wealthy band of schoolmates who provide a rich counterpoint to the squalor of her homelife. With crystalline insight into the human condition, Larofet's classic can now reclaim it's position in modern literature.
