Corazón de Ulises

Author: Javier Reverte Narrator: Jordi Salas Release Date: November 2019

En Corazón de Ulises, acompañamos a Javier Reverte en su viaje por Grecia, Turquía y Egipto: un viaje con la cultura a cuestas. Corazón de Ulises es un libro que, desde su primera edición, ha sido considerado un clásico de la literatura de viajes de nuestro país. Leído y estudiado en las universidades y recomendado también en numerosas guías, profundo y ameno, sabio y cercano, este libro reúne lo mejor de la literatura de su autor: la pedagogía y la emoción, el saber y la información, la poesía y la historia, el humor y la reflexión. Javier Reverte nos cuenta en él su viaje por los territorios de la Grecia actual, pero también nos acerca a los territorios del ayer griego. Y funde en sus páginas la Grecia pretérita y la del presente. Cualquiera que viaje a la Grecia de hoy, pretendiendo entender al tiempo su imponente legado, debería llevar este libro con él. Porque Corazón de Ulises es un recorrido por la Grecia del presente escrito para quien lo quiera leer mientras viaja. Y también para los que, sin ánimo de viajar, deseen saber cómo fueron los caminos que trazaron los antiguos griegos. Javier Reverte ha creado un género literario nuevo con su forma de contar la vida de las gentes. Recuperar una obra tan significativa en esta nueva edición es una forma de acercar la cultura clásica a los lectores ávidos de viajar y de saber, en un lenguaje tan eterno como nuevo.

Hungry Audiobook

Hungry

Author: Jeff Gordinier Narrator: Jeff Gordinier Release Date: November 2019

A food critic chronicles four years spent traveling with René Redzepi, the renowned chef of Noma, in search of the most tantalizing flavors the world has to offer. Hungry is a book about not only the hunger for food, but for risk, for reinvention, for creative breakthroughs, and for connection. Feeling stuck in his work and home life, writer Jeff Gordinier happened into a fateful meeting with Danish chef René Redzepi, whose restaurant, Noma, has been called the best in the world. A restless perfectionist, Redzepi was at the top of his game but was looking to tear it all down, to shutter his restaurant and set out for new places, flavors, and recipes. This is the story of the subsequent four years of globe-trotting culinary adventure, with Gordinier joining Redzepi as his Sancho Panza. In the jungle of the Yucatán peninsula, Redzepi and his comrades go off-road in search of the perfect taco. In Sydney, they forage for sea rocket and sandpaper figs in suburban parks and on surf-lashed beaches. On a boat in the Arctic Circle, a lone fisherman guides them to what may or may not be his secret cache of the world's finest sea urchins. And back in Copenhagen, the quiet canal-lined city where Redzepi started it all, he plans the resurrection of his restaurant on the unlikely site of a garbage-filled lot. Along the way, readers meet Redzepi's merry band of friends and collaborators, including acclaimed chefs such as Danny Bowien, Kylie Kwong, Rosio Sánchez, David Chang, and Enrique Olvera. Hungry is a memoir, a travelogue, a portrait of a chef, and a chronicle of the moment when daredevil cooking became the most exciting and groundbreaking form of artistry. 'Gordinier takes us into the fabulously obsessive realm of the world's most fascinating chef--and he does it with the voice of a poet.' RUTH REICHL, author of Save Me the Plums

Parking the Moose: One American's Epic Quest to Uncover His Incredible Canadian Roots Audiobook

Parking the Moose: One American's Epic Quest to Uncover His Incredible Canadian Roots

Author: Dave Hill Narrator: Dave Hill Release Date: October 2019

A quarter-Canadian from Cleveland explores his roots--and melts your face with joy. There's an idea most Americans tend to learn as children. The idea that their country is the 'best.' But this never stuck with Dave Hill, even though he was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. His grandfather, you see, was from Canada (Clinton, Ontario, to be exact). And every Sunday at dinner he'd remind Dave and anyone else within earshot that it was in fact Canada, this magical and mysterious land just across the mighty Lake Erie, that was the 'best.' It was an idea that took hold. While his peers kept busy with football, basketball and baseball, hockey became the only sport for Dave. Whenever bacon was served at home, he'd be sure to mention his preference for the Canadian variety. Likewise, if a song by Triumph came on the radio, he'd be the first to ask for it to be cranked up as loud as it would go. And he was more vocal about the vast merits of the Canadian healthcare system than any nine-year-old you'd ever want to meet. (That last part is a lie, but hopefully it makes the point that he was so into Canada that it was actually kind of weird.) In later years he even visited Canada a couple of times. But now, inspired by a publisher's payment of several hundred dollars (Canadian) in cash, he has travelled all over the country, reconnecting with his heritage in such places as Montreal, Moose Jaw, Regina, Winnipeg, Merrickville and of course Clinton, Ontario, meeting a range of Canadians, touching things he probably shouldn't and having adventures too numerous and rich in detail to be done justice in this blurb. The result, he promises, is 'the greatest Canada-based literary thrill ride of your lifetime.'

Unlikely Positions in Unlikely Places: A Yoga Journey Around Britain Audiobook

Unlikely Positions in Unlikely Places: A Yoga Journey Around Britain

Author: Elizabeth Gowing Narrator: Elizabeth Gowing Release Date: October 2019

Elizabeth Gowing is not a likely yogini. She is too fond of cake and To-do lists, and sometimes falls over on her mat. But yoga has taken her on journeys both inside and out and now she follows yoga around Britain - from the village hall where a quivering triangle pose was interrupted by the council recycling collection to a sound gong bath in the country's noisiest city, from Cornwall to Scotland. She discovers prisoners finding solace in child's pose; children finding expression in dancer pose, and dancers sitting bendily in cobbler's pose. Her feet start to hurt and she realizes that yoga is a current of shared experience that runs quietly through British society, through Middle England to the nation's extremes from Newcastle to Nottingham, East Anglia to West Kilbride, she untangles the Ashtanga from the Kundalini, the Sanskrit from the whimsical new-age, and finds the ways that yoga is rebuilding communities and lives - and her own wobbling body. Sometimes funny, sometimes touching, Gowing evokes the characters and communities she meets along a fascinating journey in a celebration of ancient wisdom solving modern-day problems and the exultation of finally mastering the Crow.

On the Plain of Snakes Audiobook

On the Plain of Snakes

Author: Paul Theroux Narrator: Joseph Balderrama Release Date: October 2019

The master of contemporary travel writing, Paul Theroux, immerses himself in the beautiful and troubled heart of modern Mexico Nogales is a border town caught between Mexico and the United States of America. A forty-foot steel fence runs through its centre, separating the prosperous US side from the impoverished Mexican side. It is a fascinating site of tension, now more than ever, as the town fills with hopeful border crossers and the deportees who have been caught and brought back. And it is here that Paul Theroux will begin his journey into the culturally rich but troubled heart of modern Mexico. Moving through the deserts just south of the Arizona border, Theroux finds a place brimming with charm, yet visibly marked by both the US border patrol looming to the north and mounting discord from within. Attending local language and culinary schools, driving through the country and meeting its people, Paul Theroux gets under the skin of Mexico. From the writer praised for his 'curiosity and affection for humanity in all its forms' (New York Times Book Review), On The Plain of Snakes is an urgent and mesmerising exploration of a region in conflict. Praise for Paul Theroux: 'As cool as Maugham... as observant, intuitive, wry, inventive and eloquent as Graham Greene' Sunday Times 'Theroux's work remains the standard by which other travel writing must be judged' Observer 'The world's most perceptive travel writer' Daily Mail 'One of the most accomplished and worldly-wise writers of his generation' The Times
