"Surprised by the gravity of the charges against Remo Ayala's patient, psychologist Alberto Albores accepted part of the team that will defend the innocence of the youth. But as he got more and more disturbing information about Remo, the psychologist must decide whether what he narrated was mere fantasies or true atrocities. Did you work with the magician and escape artist who calls himself The Great Padilla? Did you kill the mysterious Farid Sabag, or was the murderer his twin brother, who tried to frame him? How did the mother of twins die, and why did a powerful politician strive to cover their tracks? What role does the Mexican guerrilla have in this story? Who is this seer, disappeared in sinister circumstances, which seems to know the truth?-- cataloger's translation of publisher's or seller's website.

"This book travels from conventional narrative to metaliterature. The story begins with a brief novel within the novel; it is followed by various essay-style texts and fragments of a personal diary that allow us to guess at the personality of their author, the owner of the Hotel Poe. She is planning the hotel's anniversary party and sends out email invitations. Her correspondents reply and the novel turns into epistolary fiction/nonfiction. Meanwhile there are interruptions in the voice of an amanuensis, who is not fond of the author's manuscript..."--cataloger's summary.

Set in 1960s Paris, this novel is narrated in first person by a very young Mexican writer, almost a child, who is wonderstruck and enchanted with everything he is seeing and living through: with his strange relations with Sartre, with the painter who forges a Matisse, with his sensual aunt Adela, with the beautiful Alain who is accused of murder and becomes a transvestite, with Didi and Margot, with Jeanne who left for Amsterdam taking with her a photo of Tláloc, and with the Russian medium through whom a French gentleman expresses himself when he converses and argues with André Breton in the next life.

201 pages ; 21 cm
Novel.
Bernabé Góngora, a fat man with a sweet tooth, is dining pleasantly with friends one night when he abruptly collapses on the table. His body is examined, declared dead, cremated and deposited in an urn; his ghost remains on earth, captive in the restaurant's electric chandelier. Meanwhile his widow, whose life he had always organized for her, is forced to enter the real world on her own. Still young and exquisitely attractive, she must confront men who would seduce her; inexperienced, she must take charge of the furniture shop she has inherited; and without knowing how, she must decide whether she is content in her solitude. This beginning is the excuse that brings us into small-town life in the 1890s, into an age where technological advances appear alongside new scientific and pseudoscientific curiousities. This age is a cross between conservatism and freedom, between conveniences and desires that jump over social classes and good manners.

Novel.
"On September 11, 2001, journalist Mario Palmero is sent from Mexico City to New York to cover the attack on the Twin Towers. With all flights grounded, he drives to Manhattan, not letting go of the steering wheel for three straight days, all the while convinced that the world is about to explode into World War Three. He is accompanied by two war photographers: a malicious European correspondent with his career in decline and an old Latin American journalist hounded by his scruples. As they traverse the conflicted territory, and as tension mounts among the three travelers, Palmero deeply examines the life he has led up to that point: from the Argentine dictatorship he lived through in his childhood, to forced exile, to the growing violence in present-day Mexico." -- cataloger's translation of cover.
