John Death

By: Richard Shekari

In the search for protection from his enemies, a wealthy business man hires the service of John Death, a hero to whom he owes his life, and hands the keys to his empire which within lies his sole possession; his daughter. A move which would later see its folly....

As the white sports car slowly drove towards the entrance to St. Joan’s chapel to the sight of the onlooking congregation, John glanced at the tall elderly Priest through his window, should he step down and join the congregation as they matched into the chapel or just zoom off. His eyes gazing at the concealed scarred face of the Priest, reluctant on whether he should join them, John lifted his foot off the accelerator and unto the brake pedal, putting the car to a halt right in front of the chapel as he stared at the Priest. The church members were a bit frightened as they wondered who it was and why the stranger parked there, the Priest excused himself and walked down the steps to meet John. “I hope you’ve found peace, my son!” said the Priest as he lowered his head down to have a good look at John. ...

Chocolade voor Anne Frank (Dutch)

By: Machiel van der Stelt; translated by Machiel van der Stelt

Anne en anderen die in het Achterhuis leven in Amsterdam, worden verraden en op vier augustus negentien vier en veertig gearresteerd. De familieleden worden naar verschillende concentratiekampen gestuurd. Anne en haar oudere zus Margot eindigen in het Bergen-Belsen kamp. Anne verwacht verschrikkelijke omstandigheden, maar wanneer ze betrokken raakt met de SS bewaker Adolfo, is er een kans dat haar situatie van een wanhopige naar een hoopvolle verandert. In dit tragisch verhaal ontdek je dat onmenselijk en moorddadig gedrag tijdens oorlog vaak extreme vormen kan aannemen. Door het alsmaar terugkeren van oorlogen moeten we ons dan ook afvragen of de mens ooit in staat zal zijn om een vredige en vrije gemeenschap te creëren? Waarschuwing: dit verhaal is niet aanbevolen voor kinderen jonger dan twaalf jaar oud, vanwege aanstootgevende of schokkende scenes en gebeurtenissen....

El Cielo en Ruinas : Literatura Breve

By: Angel Fabregat Morera

Un anciano que escribe una carta a los Reyes Magos, un viudo que pasa las horas con las cenizas de su mujer, una señora madura que redescubre el erotismo a bordo del autobús que la lleva al trabajo: son algunos de los personajes que nos miran desde los relatos en miniatura de El cielo en ruinas. A lo largo de sus páginas, el autor nos somete en una mirada implacable a las heridas y cicatrices a las que nos enfrentamos cada día, pero no deja de tener un guiño cómplice y una palabra de aliento para todos los que las padecemos. Cada relato nos traslada a este mundo caótico que hace tiempo dejó de ser el paraíso, pero en el que, como destellos, siguen vislumbrándose el amor, el perdón y la solidaridad, el anhelo de querer y ser queridos. La ilusión más allá de la muerte, los desengaños del deseo, esas sutiles ironías del destino que hacen que la vida valga la pena… Ángel Fabregat nos invita a recomponer nuestro propio cielo en ruinas a través de estas páginas que son también puertas a la risa y a la felicidad. Con sus reflexiones agridulces y la belleza destilada de las palabras justas, este libro está destinado a ser un amigo de...

The Garden of Branching Paths

By: Jorge Luis Borges; Norman Thomas di Giovanni, Translator

An author who frequently played with the borders of his own identity, Borges loved to create works in collaboration with others. One of his longtime companions in this literary game of exquisite corpse was Norman Thomas Di Giovanni, who translated this edition of El jardín de senderos que se bifurcan. They worked together on English editions of much of Borges’ fiction, poetry, and non-fiction, all of which was signed by both authors together as a collaborative effort. Borges loved translation, and brought a creative infidelity to the effort that embraced the inevitable transformations of the original and highlighted his own interests in the source text. His translations of his own work with Di Giovanni are no more faithful, and represent an important part of his literary output. Unfortunately, they were allowed to go out of print after Borges’ death, most likely because Borges’ widow María Kodama and Viking-Penguin could secure more royalties for themselves if they broke the 50/50 agreement Borges had established with Di Giovanni for all their shared projects. Di Giovanni has even been legally barred from making his translations ava...

The writing of vast books - setting out in five hundred pages an idea which could be perfectly expressed orally in a few minutes - is an exhausting and impoverishing piece of extravagance. Far better to pretend that such books already exist and to provide them with a summary or commentary. This is what Carlyle did in Sartor Resartus and Butler in The Fair Haven, works that have the imperfection of also being books and no less tautological than any others. More rational, more inept, more idle, I have chosen to write reviews of imaginary books. These are ‘Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius’, ‘A Glimpse into the Work of Herbert Quain’,and ‘The Approach to al-Mu’tasim’...
