    The Irish Sea
    ( paperback )

    $14.00 $11.20

    The Irish Sea is a novel masquerading as a book of short stories. A meditation on the paradox of nostalgia, which always seems to pine for what never was.

  • Sale! Loosing is what matters

    Losing is What Matters
    ( Paperback )

    $15.00 $12.00

    Today, losing is perceived as the worst and most despicable of defeats. The protagonist of this novel is a consummate loser. Predestined to profes- sional success and social “normalities,” an unexpected event—the woman he lives with leaves him—will begin a whirlwind of nonsense and diffi- culties that will lead him to the edge of the abyss. However, perhaps it is precisely in the fall where one finds the keys to survival. Guided by an old friend and lightened by reminiscences from the past, the protagonist will embark on a journey where losing will be revealed as his most loyal ally in a world where professional and social greed increasingly transforms the individual into a foreigner to himself. Losing Is What Matters presents a new voice in Spanish fiction, and is a first novel that is as symptomatic of our time as the title suggests.
