«Victor, mala suerte, ¿qué haces fuera?» A los parisinos les divierte. Desde hace cuatro meses esta frase acompaña los círculos azules que surgen durante la noche trazados con tiza en las aceras de la ciudad, y en el centro de los círculos, prisioneros, un desecho, un residuo, un objeto perdido: un trombón, una bombilla, una pinza de depilar, un yogur, una pata de paloma... El fenómeno hace las delicias de los periodistas y de algunos psiquiatras que elaboran diferentes teorías. Sin embargo, al comisario Adamsberg no le hace ninguna gracia. Los círculos y su heteróclito contenido «rezuman» crueldad. Él lo sabe, lo siente: pronto ese hecho anodino y estrafalario se convertirá en una tragedia.

Después de El hombre de los círculos azules, en esta nueva intriga policiaca nos encontramos a «tres evangelistas»: Mathias, Lucien y Marc, tres jóvenes historiadores en paro y sin un céntimo, que intentarán resolver un caso muy complicado. Mathias es duro, casi de piedra, como la edad prehistórica de la que se ocupa; Lucien es un estudioso de la primera guerra mundial, y Marc, un medievalista muy nervioso. No parece el equipo idóneo para resolver un caso de homicidio que hunde sus raíces en un pasado lejano, lleno de rencor y celos. Pero, a veces, la intuición y la capacidad de análisis consiguen más de lo que se pueda imaginar. El escenario: una calle del centro de París, donde todo el mundo se conoce y nada pasa desapercibido.

It is November 25, 1960, and three beautiful sisters have been found near their wrecked Jeep at the bottom of a 150-foot cliff on the north coast of the Dominican Republic. The official state newspaper reports their deaths as accidental. It does not mention that a fourth sister lives. Nor does it explain that the sisters were among the leading opponents of Gen. Rafael Leonidas Trujillo’s dictatorship. It doesn’t have to. Everybody knows of Las Mariposas—“The Butterflies.” In this extraordinary novel, the voices of all four sisters—Minerva, Patria, María Teresa, and the survivor, Dedé—speak across the decades to tell their own stories, from hair ribbons and secret crushes to gunrunning and prison torture, and to describe the everyday horrors of life under Trujillo’s rule. Through the art and magic of Julia Alvarez’s imagination, the martyred Butterflies live again in this novel of courage and love, and the human cost of political oppression.

El Parnaso, congreso literario que concede anualmente un premio al mejor inédito de un maestro, cambia de sede y busca una ciudad que lo albergue en 2007. Este festival tiene una peculiaridad: los participantes, auténticos clásicos, están todos muertos. Dante Alighieri, representando a los consagrados y custodiado por una joven poeta norteamericana muy de moda y una autora mexicana (narradora de la mayor parte de la novela), viajará a México, posible futura sede. Con ellas, visita un centro comercial, cruza diferentes fronteras entre Estados Unidos y México, es iniciado en la cultura contemporánea e incluso asiste al rodaje de El Zorro III. Ciertos hechos harán que Madrid compita también por la candidatura... Sólo Carmen Boullosa podía escribir una novela así, creadora de su propio género. Entre carnaval y ensayo, entre intelectual y pop, entre novela de fantasmas y road-novel, esta novela única, cómica y reflexiva, simple y a la vez compleja, confirma el lugar que ocupa la autora en nuestras letras hispanas. El jurado destaca lo atrevido de su propuesta, el brillante uso de la cultura literaria, así como la ruptura de los moldes narrativos al uso y el hilarante juego metaliterario acerca de la figura del autor.

Gwyneth Shepherd's sophisticated, beautiful cousin Charlotte has been prepared her entire life for traveling through time. But unexpectedly, it is Gwyneth who in the middle of class takes a sudden spin to a different era! Gwyneth must now unearth the mystery of why her mother would lie about her birth date to ward off suspicion about her ability, brush up on her history, and work with Gideon—the time traveler from a similarly gifted family that passes the gene through its male line, and whose presence becomes, in time, less insufferable and more essential. Together, Gwyneth and Gideon journey through time to discover who, in the 18th century and in contemporary London, they can trust. Kerstin Gier's Ruby Red is young adult novel full of fantasy and romance.

Psychiatrist Viktor Frankl's memoir has riveted generations of readers with its descriptions of life in Nazi death camps and its lessons for spiritual survival. Between 1942 and 1945 Frankl labored in four different camps, including Auschwitz, while his parents, brother, and pregnant wife perished. Based on his own experience and the experiences of others he treated later in his practice, Frankl argues that we cannot avoid suffering but we can choose how to cope with it, find meaning in it, and move forward with renewed purpose. Frankl's theory-known as logotherapy, from the Greek word logos ("meaning")-holds that our primary drive in life is not pleasure, as Freud maintained, but the discovery and pursuit of what we personally find meaningful. At the time of Frankl's death in 1997, Man's Search for Meaning had sold more than 10 million copies in twenty-four languages. A 1991 reader survey for the Library of Congress that asked readers to name a "book that made a difference in your life" found Man's Search for Meaning among the ten most influential books in America.
