Esperanza no quiere pertenecer, ni a su barrio ni a las bajas expectativas que el mundo le ofrece. La historia de Esperanza es la de una joven intentando alcanzar su propio poder e inventar sup propio futuro.

    Las hazanas del correo del zar. Entre los numerosos libros de aventuras de Julio Verne (1828-1905) uno de los mas emocionantes, por la cantidad de peripecias que ocurren, esta la celebre obra "Miguel Strogoff", la historia de un correo del zar que tiene que llevar un mensaje de gran importancia a una guarnicion sitiada por los tartaros, instigados por un traidor. La gran imaginacion de Verne logra que episodio tras episodio cautive el interes sin que este decaiga por un momento.

    "Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way" famously begins Tolstoy's Anna Karenina, and it is from this classic observation that modern master Carlos Fuentes weaves together sixteen vignettes of families, from the Mexican presidential palaces to the middle-class apartments to the places of the poor. In the language of the street, and in straightforward, elegant prose, Fuentes gives us stories connnected by love, including the failures of it - love between spouses, lovers, parents and children, siblings.

    In an abandoned mansion at the heart of Barcelona, a young man, David Martin, makes his living by writing sensationalist novels under a pseudonym. The survivor of a troubled childhood, he has taken refuge in the world of books and spends his nights spinning baroque tales about the city's underworld. But perhaps his dark imaginings are not as strange as they seem, for in a locked room deep within the house lie photographs and letters hinting at the mysterious death of the previous owner.
