      La playa y el tiempo

      by Ernesto Calabuig

      "Writing is daring, like taking your clothes off on a beach”. This is the start to the first of the short stories that make up this book, the story of a writer who, at the age of forty-seven, decides to stop the inertia and decline of her life and not come back from her summer holiday. The main character of Beijing-Xàtiva, on board of a train, will also find out the almost unfathomable implications of trying to bring the past back. Through this collection we see a whole gallery of diverse characters that share the common denominator of a fight against the frantic pace of time: school teachers, flamenco dancers, old sea men, Japanese engineers, fathers that watch their children grow and drift away, impossible lovers from an old translation academy, high school lovers who lost track of each other, men visited by Greek philosophers and tormented by a dream, French guitarists, voyeurs of other people’s lives… Even Leonard Cohen portrayed in detail during his years in a Buddhist monastery, in silence, away from the stage. “Escribir es un atrevimiento, como quedarse desnuda en una playa”. Así comienza el primero de los relatos que componen este libro, la historia de una escritora que, a sus cuarenta y siete años, decide detener la inercia y el declive de su vida y no regresar de un veraneo. También el protagonista de Pekín-Xàtiva, a bordo de un tren, descubrirá las implicaciones casi fantasmales de intentar recuperar el pasado. Por esta colección desfila toda una galería de variados personajes que comparten el denominador común de afrontar el vértigo del paso del tiempo: maestras infantiles, bailaoras de flamenco, ancianos del mar del Norte, ingenieros japoneses, padres que ven a sus hijos crecer y alejarse, amantes imposibles de una vieja academia de traducciones, amores de instituto a los que se les perdió la pista, hombres visitados por filósofos griegos y atormentados por un sueño, guitarristas franceses, voyeurs de las vidas ajenas… Y hasta el propio Leonard Cohen retratado al detalle en sus años de silencio, apartado de los escenarios en un monasterio budista."

    • Chaplin (Cómic)

      by Enrique Gallud Jardiel y Carmen Corrales

      Charles Chaplin es uno de los más destacados artistas que ha dado el siglo XX y también, sin duda, uno de grandes directores de Hollywood, aparte de su enorme talento interpretativo. Su gran creación fue el personaje de «Charlot», que llegó a ser conocido por el público de todo el mundo. Este entrañable vagabundo ha hecho reír a varias generaciones, al tiempo que ha mostrado lo dura que es la lucha por la vida para los más humildes. Las películas de Chaplin son comedias cómicas y a la vez amargas, que defienden la causa de los desheredados de la fortuna, lo que le supuso a su autor críticas y hasta persecución política. La vida de Chaplin fue, como sus obras cinematográficas, intensa, apasionante y de gran interés. En este cómic se recoge toda ella para que chicos y grandes aprendan y recuerden en qué consiste ser un verdadero artista.

    • La nostalgia del limonero

      by Mari Pau Domínguez

      The Nostalgia of the Lemon Tree. Concha is Andalusian and emigrated to Catalonia in the 1960s. Her daughter, Paz, has just divorced and is in financial and emotional ruin, which is why she decides to return to the old family house in Barcelona, ​​a place and a city which she had left never to return. Since adolescence, Paz's obsession has been to leave behind her past as a daughter of immigrants, tired of being "the Catalan" during summers in the village near Seville where they come from and "the Andalusian" the rest of the year in the middle-class neighborhood of her parents. Paz returns to Barcelona with many open issues and a bitter sense of failure and stagnation that coincides with the social and political crisis of the moment. Paz has never known the details of her mother’s story, Concha, a woman full of energy and passion who has managed to deal with life’s setbacks: the disappointment of her marriage after a whirlwind courtship, the terrible floods of Catalonia in 1962 of which she was a victim, the harshness of the first years of immigration, the impossibility of personal fulfilment through a love story later in life, and the growing distance away from her only daughter, through which she projects all her illusions.
