Excerpt Details
As the white sports car slowly drove towards the entrance to St. Joan’s chapel to the sight of the onlooking congregation, John glanced at the tall elderly Priest through his window, should he step down and join the congregation as they matched into the chapel or just zoom off. His eyes gazing at the concealed scarred face of the Priest, reluctant on whether he should join them, John lifted his foot off the accelerator and unto the brake pedal, putting the car to a halt right in front of the chapel as he stared at the Priest. The church members were a bit frightened as they wondered who it was and why the stranger parked there, the Priest excused himself and walked down the steps to meet John. “I hope you’ve found peace, my son!” said the Priest as he lowered his head down to have a good look at John. ...

Description Details
Stories Varied delve into the possibilities of woman’s life in the man’s world. While Ilaa’s Ire takes one back to woman’s life and times in the Vedic age, ‘201’ Qualms depicts her predicament when torn between trust and duty. If “?” addresses woman’s marital stress in an alien land, Cupid’s Clue is about her acting on a rebound in the native place. Even as Autumn Love enables a woman to discover the void late in life, A Touchy Affair renders her amenable to her man’s other woman well in time. Just as Love’s How’s That inflames her old flame, A Hearty Turn brings the female lesbian leanings to the fore. As Love Jihad bridges lovers’ religious divide with a secular plank, Tenth Nook creates a marital gulf on the material plane. If Eleventh Hour is about woman’s lust for love, Twelfth Tale underscores her quest for power....

“Why am I bogged down with this man-made thing without a thought for the man who made it all happen,” she thought on second-thought. ”He’s only to be blamed for that. Why not, he’s the one who maligned my mind with materialism, didn’t he? Or is it Mammon who had seduced my soul to the core? But how does that mater any way. He did desert me at the first post of adversity and that’s what matters. How shameful. Is it cowardice or callousness? How am I to know? Let him go to hell and I’ll brave it out regardless. But what about our kids, won’t they be worse off, left in the lurch?” From Tenth Nook...

Description Details
El cielo en ruinas, parece tomado de un texto de Alejandro Oliveros que se cita al principio del libro. Como bien se dice en el prólogo: «la realidad se puede explicar con un sueño. Un sueño puede durar un segundo. Ergo: la realidad se puede resumir en un segundo, en una pincelada de tiempo». Así es como puede surgir un libro como este, que se podría clasificar como una recopilación de relatos, pero con la particularidad de que no son relatos breves, sino hiperbreves, lo que se ha venido en llamar microrrelatos. Relatos que, por cuestión de longitud no desarrollan personajes, casi ni los nombran; solo aportan el núcleo de la historia; a veces en cuatro líneas, a veces en un par de páginas, pero incluso en alguna ocasión, en una sola línea, como así nos lo demuestra el autor con su capacidad de síntesis en este libro. No es un libro corriente porque son muchas las recopilaciones de relatos que incluyen entre sus páginas algún microrrelato, pero muy pocos los que llenan sus páginas, solo con estos relatos hiperbreves. El lector encontrará de todo, algunos con un cierto humor ácido que le da al final una doble lectura (son los que me...

EL SUCESO Cada tarde al volver del trabajo en el tren de cercanías de las 18:45, veo a mi mujer de pie en el andén alzando cada tanto la cabeza, como si buscara a alguien. Cuando el tren ya ha reanudado su marcha, me acerco a ella y le digo: —Siento que hayas tenido que esperar tanto, pero hoy iba con algo de retraso… Eh, ¿me escuchas?… Soy tu marido… ¡María! ¡María!… Ella mira y mira ensimismada, mientras nuestro perro me ladra. Cuando no queda nadie en el apeadero se va entre lágrimas. Así llevamos desde que estalló aquella bomba en el vagón. ...

Description Details
Anne en anderen die in het Achterhuis leven in Amsterdam, worden verraden en op vier augustus negentien vier en veertig gearresteerd. De familieleden worden naar verschillende concentratiekampen gestuurd. Anne en haar oudere zus Margot eindigen in het Bergen-Belsen kamp. Anne verwacht verschrikkelijke omstandigheden, maar wanneer ze betrokken raakt met de SS bewaker Adolfo, is er een kans dat haar situatie van een wanhopige naar een hoopvolle verandert. In dit tragisch verhaal ontdek je dat onmenselijk en moorddadig gedrag tijdens oorlog vaak extreme vormen kan aannemen. Door het alsmaar terugkeren van oorlogen moeten we ons dan ook afvragen of de mens ooit in staat zal zijn om een vredige en vrije gemeenschap te creëren? Waarschuwing: dit verhaal is niet aanbevolen voor kinderen jonger dan twaalf jaar oud, vanwege aanstootgevende of schokkende scenes en gebeurtenissen....

Description Details
Un anciano que escribe una carta a los Reyes Magos, un viudo que pasa las horas con las cenizas de su mujer, una señora madura que redescubre el erotismo a bordo del autobús que la lleva al trabajo: son algunos de los personajes que nos miran desde los relatos en miniatura de El cielo en ruinas. A lo largo de sus páginas, el autor nos somete en una mirada implacable a las heridas y cicatrices a las que nos enfrentamos cada día, pero no deja de tener un guiño cómplice y una palabra de aliento para todos los que las padecemos. Cada relato nos traslada a este mundo caótico que hace tiempo dejó de ser el paraíso, pero en el que, como destellos, siguen vislumbrándose el amor, el perdón y la solidaridad, el anhelo de querer y ser queridos. La ilusión más allá de la muerte, los desengaños del deseo, esas sutiles ironías del destino que hacen que la vida valga la pena… Ángel Fabregat nos invita a recomponer nuestro propio cielo en ruinas a través de estas páginas que son también puertas a la risa y a la felicidad. Con sus reflexiones agridulces y la belleza destilada de las palabras justas, este libro está destinado a ser un amigo de...
