«Pampa y política, tiempos muertos de vida cotidiana y diálogos muy vivos, con un trasfondo crítico lleno de suspenso en el que la rabia fecunda es compatible con el humor más fresco.» Del acta del jurado del Premio Alfaguara de novela 2016 Una novela de Eduardo Sacheri, autor de El secreto de sus ojos, que inspiró la película ganadora del Oscar. En un pueblo perdido de la provincia de Buenos Aires, muchas cosas están a punto de extinguirse. Durante la crisis económica de 2001 que desembocó en el corralito bancario, un grupo de vecinos se propone reunir el dinero necesario para llevar a cabo un proyecto que podría ser una salida de la decadencia y la pobreza. Pero en medio de la incautación general de los ahorros, sufren una estafa particular que los decide a recuperar lo perdido. En esta novela Eduardo Sacheri narra la historia de esa merecida revancha de los perdedores, consumada en una noche legendaria y secreta que quedará en el recuerdo. En un país sin justicia solo queda la revancha. «Pampa y política, tiempos muertos de vida cotidiana y diálogos muy vivos, con un trasfondo crítico lleno de suspenso en el que la rabia fecunda es compatible con el humor más fresco.» Del acta del jurado del XIX Premio Alfaguara, presidido por Carme Riera y compuesto por Michi Strausfeld, Carlos Zanón, Sara Mesa, Mercedes Corbillón y Pilar Reyes. La crítica ha dicho... «[...]el nuevo libro de Eduardo Sacheri es un desahogo, un reparador y oportuno suspiro que llena de oxígeno el alma de los perdedores. El gol del honor, que le dicen.» Jorge Londero, La voz del interior Sobre el autor: «Sacheri logra como pocos darle una proyección universal a las historias que cuenta. Historias de gente común donde lo cotidiano se vuelve épico.» Juan José Campanella «El argentino Eduardo Sacheri hace de las historias cotidianas lecturas conmovedoras, de los lugares comunes situaciones universales.» Rocío Huerta, El País «Es la presencia de Sacheri en los guiones lo que hace que las películas de Campanella tengan un importante toque de humor, un humor muy de Buenos Aires, rápido y algo negro.» Soledad Gallego-Díaz, El País Sobre El secreto de sus ojos: «Resulta una delicia la lectura de esta novela en la que todo sucede como estallidos entre la cotidianidad, la rutina y el sosiego.» Luis Alonso Girgado, Diario de Ferrol (España) «El valor, la lealtad, la crueldad y la venganza: Sacheri socava astutamente nuestras suposiciones acerca de las respuestas humanas fundamentales en una novela que es profundamente política y compasiva.» Anna Mundow, The Barnes & Noble Review (Estados Unidos) «Sacheri nos dice todo sin adornos, sin desvíos, sin falsa complacencia. Los hechos, nada más que los hechos incuestionables y fríos. [...] Hábilmente, el autor plantea también una pregunta difícil: ¿cuál es la legitimidad de la venganza? Una gran novela que sería abusivo colocar bajo la etiqueta de novela policial. Es mucho más que eso.» Geneviève Pieckarczyk, Encre Noir (Bélgica)

Searching for an inn, the enigmatic traveler Hans stops in a small city on the border between Saxony and Prussia. The next morning, Hans meets an old organ-grinder in the market square and immediately finds himself enmeshed in an intense debate—on identity and what it is that defines us—from which he cannot break free. Indefinitely stuck in Wandernburg until his debate with the organ-grinder is concluded, he begins to meet the various characters who populate the town, including a young freethinker named Sophie. Though she is engaged to be married, Sophie and Hans begin a relationship that defies contemporary mores about female sexuality and what can and cannot be said about it. Traveler of the Century is a deeply intellectual novel, chock-full of discussions about philosophy, history, literature, love, and translation. It is a book that looks to the past in order to have us reconsider the conflicts of our present. The winner of Spain's prestigious Alfaguara Prize and the National Critics Prize, Traveler of the Century marks the English-language debut of Andrés Neuman, a writer described by Roberto Bolaño as being "touched by grace."

There's Agustina, a beautiful woman from an upper-class family who is caught in the throes of madness; her husband Aguilar, a man passionately in love with his wife and determined to rescue her from insanity; Agustina's former lover Midas, a drug-trafficker and money-launderer; and Nicolás, Agustina's grandfather. Through the blend of these distinct voices, Restrepo creates a searing portrait of a society battered by war and corruption, as well as an intimate look at the daily lives of people struggling to stay sane in an unstable reality.

The military cult classic with resonance to the wars in Iraq and Vietnam—now back in print When The Centurions was first published in 1960, readers were riveted by the thrilling account of soldiers fighting for survival in hostile environments. They were equally transfixed by the chilling moral question the novel posed: how to fight when the “age of heroics is over.” As relevant today as it was half a century ago, The Centurions is a gripping military adventure, an extended symposium on waging war in a new global order, and an essential investigation of the ethics of counterinsurgency. Featuring a foreword by renowned military expert Robert D. Kaplan, this important wartime novel will again spark debate about controversial tactics in hot spots around the world. For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

Deepak Chopra has discovered the delights—and frustrations—of golf, and he is passionate about the game. Confronted by the wild ups and downs of his own play, he consulted with golf professionals and developed a new approach to the game that any golfer can follow—from the novice to the expert. The results can be measured not only in increased enjoyment and skill, but also in greater wisdom about life beyond the 18th hole. Chopra’s own game has improved dramatically since incorporating the elements of his program. Instead of focusing on the mechanics of a “perfect” swing, Chopra reveals how golf can be mastered through mindfulness, a form of awareness that combines sharp focus and relaxation at the same time. Expanded awareness, he tells us, can accomplish much more than external mechanics to improve one’s game. But Golf for Enlightenment is also an engrossing story about Adam, an Everyman who is playing a terrible round of golf when he meets a mysterious young teaching pro named Leela. In seven short but profound lessons detailing spiritual strategies, she teaches Adam the essence of a game that has much to explain about life itself. Chopra has spent the last year taking the unique message in Golf for Enlightenment nationwide, teaching the essential tenets of his program at lectures and seminars to golfers everywhere. His message continues to help players turn an obsession into a positive life path. From the Hardcover edition.

From the best-selling author of The Secret in Their Eyes, an adventure about friendship, soccer, and good humor When Alejandro “Mono” dies of cancer, his brother and two closest friends, a tight-knit group since childhood, are left to figure out how to take care of his young daughter, Guadalupe. They want to give her all the love they felt for Mono and secure her future, but there isn’t a single peso left in the bank. Mono invested all of his money in a promising soccer player whose talents haven't panned out, and the three hundred thousand dollars Mono spent on his transfer is soon to be lost for good. How do you sell a forward who can’t score a goal? How do you negotiate in a world whose rules you don’t know? How do you maintain relationships when repeated failures create fissures in lifelong loyalties? Fernando, Mauricio, and Ruso pool the few resources in their arsenal to come up with strategies—from harebrained to inspired—in their desperate attempt to recoup Mono’s investment for Guadalupe. Following the lives of four distinct characters, who, despite their great differences, still manage to find solace and pride in one another, Papers in the Wind is a tribute to friendship and proof that love and humor can triumph over sadness.
