When the person he loves most dies in tragic circumstances, the mysterious protagonist of The Map of Chaos does all he can to speak to her one last time. He needs to confess the secret he did not dare tell her while she was alive. In Victorian London, when spiritualism was at its height, a session with the most renowned medium of all time seems to offer the only solution, but the experience unleashes terrible forces that bring the world to the brink of disaster. Salvation can only be found in The Map of Chaos, a mysterious book that he is desperate to find. In his search, he is given invaluable help by Arthur Conan Doyle, Lewis Carroll, and of course by H.G. Wells, whose Invisible Man seems to have escaped from the pages of his famous novel to sow terror among mankind. They alone can discover the means to save the world and to find the path that will reunite the lovers separated by death. The Map of Chaos is a thrilling adventure in which the author, displaying his customary talent for writing and subtle humour, mixes impossible loves, non-stop action, true ghosts and fake mediums in an explosive cocktail that is sure to captivate readers all over the world. Or as the mysterious narrator of this novel might put it, of all possible worlds.

"Los hombres son como los perfumes. En un instante, sin más juicio que mi ágil olfato, o me enamoro de ellos o los echo a un lado". Marisol es una exuberante poeta y archivista de historia que vive en el Miami contemporáneo. Al igual que su ciudad adoptiva, ella es un espíritu libre y sensual. Nacida en Cuba y transplantada a una temprana edad en la Florida, lleva dentro una nostalgia por la legendaria isla en que nació y que apenas recuerda. Su pasión por los olores la inspira a adoptar un perfume diferente cada vez que se embarca en una nueva relación amorosa. Tras la muerte de su querida abuela y una sucesión de malogrados romances sensuales, Marisol concluye que debe liberarse de las ataduras de su historia, abandonar causas perdidas y refugiarse en el único santuario que siempre va con ella: su propio corazón errante. Liberada al fin de su añoranza por la vieja Habana, "el París del Caribe", su romántico exilio está llamado a emprender una nueva vida. Privada de reclamar La Habana como suya, opta por su verdadero destino: París. Y es así que Marisol se lanza a desbrozar el camino hacia su futuro. Salvando la distancia entre el Miami efervescente de hoy y la mística Cuba de ayer, Siempre París es un canto a la geografía y la memoria, una obra repleta de humor, pasión y personajes inolvidables.

A young girl flees Nazi-occupied Germany with her family and best friend, only to discover that the overseas refuge they had been promised is an illusion in this “powerful and affecting” (Kirkus Reviews) debut novel, perfect for fans of The Nightingale, All the Light We Cannot See, and Schindler’s List. Before everything changed, young Hannah Rosenthal lived a charmed life. But now, in 1939, the streets of Berlin are draped with red, white, and black flags; her family’s fine possessions are hauled away; and they are no longer welcome in the places that once felt like home. Hannah and her best friend, Leo Martin, make a pact: whatever the future has in store for them, they’ll meet it together. Hope appears in the form of the S.S. St. Louis, a transatlantic liner offering Jews safe passage out of Germany. After a frantic search to obtain visas, the Rosenthals and the Martins depart on the luxurious ship bound for Havana. Life on board the St. Louis is like a surreal holiday for the refugees, with masquerade balls, exquisite meals, and polite, respectful service. But soon ominous rumors from Cuba undermine the passengers’ fragile sense of safety. From one day to the next, impossible choices are offered, unthinkable sacrifices are made, and the ship that once was their salvation seems likely to become their doom. Seven decades later in New York City, on her twelfth birthday, Anna Rosen receives a strange package from an unknown relative in Cuba, her great-aunt Hannah. Its contents will inspire Anna and her mother to travel to Havana to learn the truth about their family’s mysterious and tragic past, a quest that will help Anna understand her place and her purpose in the world. The German Girl sweeps from Berlin at the brink of the Second World War to Cuba on the cusp of revolution, to New York in the wake of September 11, before reaching its deeply moving conclusion in the tumult of present-day Havana. Based on a true story, this masterful novel gives voice to the joys and sorrows of generations of exiles, forever seeking a place called home.

Saving Beauty

Beauty today is a paradox. The cult of beauty is ubiquitous but it has lost its transcendence and become little more than an aspect of consumerism, the aesthetic dimension of capitalism. The sublime and unsettling aspects of beauty have given way to corporeal pleasures and 'likes', resulting in a kind of 'pornography' of beauty. In this book, cultural theorist Byung-Chul Han reinvigorates aesthetic theory for our digital age. He interrogates our preoccupation with all things slick and smooth, from Jeff Koon's sculptures and the iPhone to Brazilian waxing. Reaching far deeper than our superficial reactions to viral videos and memes, Han reclaims beauty, showing how it manifests itself as truth, temptation and even disaster. This wide-ranging and profound exploration of beauty, encompassing ethical and political considerations as well as aesthetic, will appeal to all those interested in cultural and aesthetic theory, philosophy and digital media.
