A story about cruelty inflicted out of love, "My Absolute Darling", touches on one of the last taboos in our culture. Turtle Alveston is fourteen years old and she has trouble reading. She is raised in a run-down house in the middle of the woods by a despotic father who isolates her from everyone, fully controls her life, and abuses her emotionally and physically. In order to free herself from the dominance of her monster father, she will use everything he taught her against him. It's the most important book of 2017 according to "Washington Post", "USA Today", "New York Times", and Amazon.com. "Some books we like enough to recommend them to others, but very rarely we encounter ones that we remember forever" - Stephen King.Show more
In 1983 Virginia Vallejo - a former model, a raising star of the Colombian television, and a socialite - met Pablo Escobar and fell in love with him. Few people have had the opportunity to get to know him as well as she did - a lover of the most wanted and the richest criminal in the world. It was one of the most scandalous romances of the 20th century, and at the same time, one of the biggest events in publishing in 2017! This story is so incredible it seems to be literary fiction. Therefore, it doesn't come as a surprise that Hollywood made a motion picture based on "Loving Pablo, hating Escobar". The movie stars Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem in the two leading roles.Show more
