O señor Xaquín desaparece por sorpresa da residencia de anciáns na que, voluntariamente, pasa os derradeiros anos da súa vida. A mobilización para dar con el provoca un enredo en cadea que, decontado, chegará ata extremos inusitados. Ao tempo que se produce esa delirante busca, os protagonistas, un vello e un parado, figuras paradigmáticas deste inicio de século, van espertar unha historia do pasado que semellaba durmida. Aínda que a lectura de ¿Zapatillas rotas¿ por veces provoque o riso, mostra un perfil de tristeza, xa que esta é unha novela que fala de como somos e como procedemos, do que é esencial e, na maioría dos casos, pasa desapercibido, do que é frívolo e, porén, ten éxito no noso tempo. ¿Zapatillas rotas¿ trata, ao cabo e sen ocultar o sarcasmo, dos valores desta sociedade en crise irreversible. Esta novela confírmao como un dos narradores galegos máis sólidos e de mellor acollida entre os lectores e lectoras do noso tempo.

Aldara, a recente ministra do goberno de esquerdas, regresa a súa vila natal para asistir a un enterro dun dos seus seres queridos. Durante a súa precipitada viaxe, rememora o que sucedeu alí hai trinta anos, coincidindo co inicio da súa adolescencia. Foi o encontro coa figura de don Manuel -o primeiro amor da súa nai- e os conflitos co seu pai, motivados pola súa amizade con este escritor condenado á soidade e vixilado polos seguidores do réxime, os acontecementos decisivos que levarán a Aldara a perder definitivamente a inocencia e a descubrir que non hai razóns para ter medo de encarar a vida sempre que salvemos os ideais. A escrita vizosa e engaiolante de Xabier Quiroga converte a esta novela de sobre o difícil tránsito á madurez e a consciencia nunha pequena alfaia literaria que destila emoción no recanto de cada páxina. Con ¿Era por setembro¿ (Xerais 2004) novela de formato breve e de intensa emoción, Xabier Quiroga confírmase como unha das voces máis poderosas da actual narrativa galega de inicio de século.

«Que farías se non che quedase nada de vida?» Esta é a pregunta á que se dispón a responder un profesor diagnosticado de cancro terminal. Comeza así a súa procura do esencial da vida, unha investigación centrada en dúas teimas do pasado relacionadas co seu pai e coa muller que sempre amou. A urxente busca de si mesmo achegarao sen remisión ao cerne dun segredo amoroso e duns cruentos e agochados sucesos da represión franquista levada a cabo polas «brigadas do amencer» nas ribeiras Miño.Partindo dunha minuciosa investigación histórica, mesturando realidade e ficción, atesourando un extraordinario alento narrativo e unha prosa vizosa e moi fluída, reaparece Xabier Quiroga cunha novela memorable que nos conduce a outro suxestivo espazo literario onde a memoria e a identidade se confunden: O Cabo do Mundo.

Luminously translated by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jhumpa Lahiri, Ties is the searing new novel by bestselling Italian novelist Domenico Starnone. Ties is the story of a marriage. Like many marriages, this one has been subject to strain, to attrition, to the burden of routine. Yet it has survived intact. Or so things appear. The rupture in Vanda and Aldo's marriage lies years in the past, but if one looks closely enough, the fissures and fault lines are evident. Their marriage is a cracked vase that may shatter at the slightest touch. Or perhaps it has already shattered, and nobody is willing to acknowledge the fact. Domenico Starnone's thirteenth work of fiction is a powerful short novel about relationships, family, love, and the ineluctable consequences of one's actions. Known as a consummate stylist and beloved as a talented storyteller, Domenico Starnone is the winner of Italy's most prestigious literary award The Strega. Winner of The Bridge Prize for Best Novel 2015

Todo o mundo semella coñecer a MK, a cantante de moda cunha carreira xa prolongada no tempo, a voz prodixiosa, e a súa excéntrica moza, Gaia. Mais, quen é MK? Que acontece antes de saír ao escenario? Que é o que fica cando as luces esmorecen? Cando remata a última xira? No intre en que pechan os micros das roldas de prensa? Se cadra o silencio é preciso para o reencontro cunha mesma. Se cadra nin a propia música ten sentido sen os espazos dos que non escapa ningún son. É neses hiatos onde MK remexe na súa cerna fanada e recuperada, na ruptura da infancia no Támil Nadu rural, impulsada polos movementos migratorios impostos a unha metrópole que a esnaquizou e a refixo de novo. Entre os sons escachados das ondas rotas, MK compón e conduce os seus pasos cara ao lugar onde o grallar do corvo se transforma na música dos seres vivos. Despois de En vías de extinción, A música dos seres vivos abre o «Ciclo dos elementos», ao que tamén pertence a novela gañadora do Premio Xerais 2014, Dende o conflito, un universo de novelas no que as personaxes aparecidas nas marxes dun relato atopan a centralidade noutro. Neste caso é MK, personaxe secundaria de En vías de extinción, quen deixa soar a súa historia en cada corte do álbum que marca a súa vida. Este ciclo, pensado como un complexo todo que seguirá avanzando en futuras novelas, permitirá acceder a visións cruzadas e compartidas de feitos e persoas que se entretecen. A música dos seres vivos é unha historia de fragmentos que doen ata comprender que hai cousas que fican para sempre rotas, que non poden nin deben repararse ao seu estado anterior. Mais precisamente das súas fendas nace a forza coa que enfrontar o mundo.

Santiago is trapped. Taken political prisoner in Montevideo after a brutal military coup, he can do nothing but write letters to his family, and try to stay sane. Far away, his nine-year-old daughter Beatrice wonders at the marvels of 1970s Buenos Aires, but her grandpa and mother - Santiago's beautiful, careworn wife, Graciela - struggle to adjust to a life in exile. Graciela fights to retain the fiery passion that suffused her marriage, her politics, her whole life, as day by day Santiago edges closer to freedom. But Santiago's rakish, reckless best friend is a constant, brooding presence in the exiles' lives, and Graciela finds herself drawn irresistibly towards him. A lucid, heart-wrenching saga of a family torn apart by the forces of history, Springtime in a Broken Mirror tells with tenderness and fury of the indelible imprint politics leaves on individual lives. Generous and unflinching, it asks whether the broken bonds of family and history can ever truly be mended.

A celebrated bestseller in Sweden, and the winner of the prestigious Per Olov Enquist Literary Prize, The White City is an arresting story of betrayal and empowerment as a criminal’s girlfriend is left behind to pick up the pieces of her imploded existence. Karin knew what she was getting herself into when she fell for John, a high-flying wheeler-dealer. But she never imagined things would turn out like this: John is gone and the coke-filled parties, seemingly endless flow of money, and high social status have been replaced by cut telephone lines, cut heat, and cut cash. All that remains of Karin’s former life is the mansion he bought for her—and his daughter, the child Karin once swore she would never bring into their dangerous world. Now she is on her own with baby Dream. As the authorities zero in on organized crime, John’s shady legacy is catching up with her. Over the course of a few days, Karin is forced to take drastic measures to claim what she considers rightfully hers so that she can start over. With slow-burning psychological intrigue and a seductive atmosphere, The White City is an intimate portrayal of one woman’s struggle to pull herself up from the paralyzing depths of despair and an unflinching examination of what it means to lose control—over your body and your life.
