Frantz Fanon was one of the twentieth century’s most important theorists of revolution, colonialism, and racial difference, and this, his masterwork, is a classic alongside Orientalism and The Autobiography of Malcolm X. The Wretched of the Earth is a brilliant analysis of the psychology of the colonized and their path to liberation. Bearing singular insight into the rage of colonized peoples and the role of violence in historical change, the book also incisively attacks postindependence disenfranchisement of the masses by the elite on one hand, and intertribal and interfaith animosities on the other. A veritable handbook of social reorganization for leaders of emerging nations, The Wretched of the Earth has had a major impact on civil rights, anticolonialism, and black-consciousness movements around the world. This new translation updates its language for a new generation of readers and its lessons are more vital now than ever.

El mundo de Mariana Enriquez no tiene por qué ser el nuestro, y, sin embargo, lo termina siendo. Bastan pocas frases para pisarlo, respirarlo y no olvidarlo gracias a una viveza emocional insólita. Con la cotidianidad hecha pesadilla, el lector se despierta abatido, perturbado por historias e imágenes que jamás conseguirá sacarse de la cabeza. Las autodenominadas «mujeres ardientes», que protestan contra una forma extrema de violencia doméstica que se ha vuelto viral; una estudiante que se arranca las uñas y las pestañas, y otra que intenta ayudarla; los años de apagones dictados por el gobierno durante los cuales se intoxican tres amigas que lo serán hasta que la muerte las separe; el famoso asesino en serie llamado Petiso Orejudo, que sólo tenía nueve años; hikikomori, magia negra, los celos, el desamor, supersticiones rurales, edificios abandonados o encantados... En estos once cuentos el lector se ve obligado a olvidarse de sí mismo para seguir las peripecias e investigaciones de cuerpos que desaparecen o bien reaparecen en el momento menos esperado. Ya sea una trabajadora social, una policía o un guía turístico, los protagonistas luchan por apadrinar a seres socialmente invisibles, indagando así en el peso de la culpa, la compasión, la crueldad, las dificultades de la convivencia, y en un terror tan hondo como verosímil. Mariana Enriquez es una de las narradoras más valientes y sorprendentes del siglo XXI, no sólo de la nueva literatura argentina a cargo de escritores nacidos durante la dictadura sino de la literatura de cualquier país o lengua. Mariana Enriquez transforma géneros literarios en recursos narrativos, desde la novela negra hasta el realismo sucio, pasando por el terror, la crónica y el humor, y ahonda con dolor y belleza en las raíces, las llamas y las tinieblas de toda existencia.

DIOS TIENE UNA TIERRA PROMETIDA PARA QUE LA RECLAMES Este, bien podría ser el secreto mejor guardado en la iglesia. Max Lucado dice que muchas personas subestiman lo que les ha sucedido después de su conversión. Confiar en Cristo es más que una eliminación del pecado. Es un depósito de poder. ¡Estás totalmente equipado! Tal vez te sientas estancado, atrapado en la rutina. Luchas las mismas batallas y enfrentas las mismas tentaciones. Te preguntas, ¿Es esto lo mejor que la vida cristiana llega a ser? Hay buenas noticias. Fuiste hecho para mucho más. Fuiste hecho para Días de gloria. Una nueva época de logro, descubrimiento y fortaleza. Deja atrás los «no puedo». Pon el «Dios puede» delante de ti. Es el momento de entrar a la Tierra Prometida. • Deja atrás el miedo y la preocupación, mientras peleas desde la victoria, no por la victoria. • Deja de vivir por vivir y atrévete a creer que tus mejores días están por venir. • Supera el rechazo al convencerte profundamente de que eres un hijo de Dios para siempre. • Enfrenta la duda al reconocer la Palabra de Dios como la autoridad final. • Recupérate de tus errores y pon tu pasado en el pasado. TIENES TODO LO QUE NECESITAS PARA SER TODO LO QUE DIOS DESEA
