Womit auch schon aus vier Seiten zitiert wäre, die nun erstmals in deutscher Sprache vorliegen. Zudem lüftet sich endlich das Geheimnis um die böse, Kinder verschlingende Gottheit »Nollij«!

Elle Kennedy - Gegensätze ​ziehen sich an
Es ​heißt: Gegensätze ziehen sich an. Und da muss etwas dran sein, denn es gibt keine andere logische Erklärung dafür, dass ich mich so zu Colin Fitzgerald hingezogen fühle. Ich mag normalerweise keine tätowierten, videospielenden, Eishockey fanatischen Nerd-Typen, die denken, dass ich einfach nur hibbelig bin. Und oberflächlich. Sein falsches Bild von mir spricht also auch noch gegen ihn. Und es hilft nicht, dass er ein Kumpel meines Bruders ist. Und dass sein bester Freund in mich verknallt ist. Und dass ich gerade bei den drei Jungs eingezogen bin. Oh, hatte ich nicht erwähnt, dass wir zusammen wohnen? Nein? Ist eigentlich auch egal, denn Colin hat deutlich gemacht, dass er sich nicht für mich interessiert, auch wenn die Funken, die zwischen uns fliegen, unser Haus in Brand stecken könnten. Aber ich bin kein Mädchen, das einem Kerl hinterherläuft, und ich werde jetzt sicherlich auch nicht damit anfangen. Ich habe ohnehin alle Hände voll damit zu tun, mit dem College, einem ätzenden Professor und einer ungewissen Zukunft klarzukommen. Also, falls mein sexy grüblerischer Mitbewohner doch noch aufwacht und erkennt, was ihm fehlt: Er weiß, wo er mich findet.

Javier Reverte - Banderas ​en la niebla
Una ​historia real escrita con los rasgos de una novela. Un libro excepcional sobre la Guerra Civil Española. Diciembre de 1936. España arde en una encarnizada guerra y, en muchos lugares, se pelea pueblo por pueblo, casa por casa. Sin conocerse ni saber siquiera el uno del otro, dos hombres de orígenes muy distintos van a encontrarse en una misma suerte: un sangriento enfrentamiento en las sierras jienenses de Lopera, donde el destino unirá sus nombres para siempre. José García Carranza, «El Algabeño», es un torero sevillano, mujeriego y falangista, que se une desde primera hora a los sublevados y participa de manera activa en la represión del pueblo andaluz al frente de los «caballistas» de ultraderecha.John Cornford, estudiante en la Universidad de Cambridge y bisnieto de Charles Darwin, es un joven poeta insuflado de espíritu romántico que, en pleno estalinismo, se convierte en uno de los primeros voluntarios en alistarse en las Brigadas Internacionales. El dibujo de sus biografías, magistralmente trazado por Javier Reverte, nos muestra dos de las caras de aquel épico conflicto bélico: la de una España tradicional hundida en un mundo de valores del pasado y la de unos jóvenes que, imbuidos de ideas revolucionaria...

Javier Reverte - Confines
¿Adónde ​ir cuándo se ha pateado tanto mundo como Javier Reverte? Como él mismo dice, el planeta se hace mucho más grande conforme vas conociéndolo mejor y siempre hay nuevos paisajes que se abren al sueño y a la vocación de conocer. Por eso ha escogido como destino en esta ocasión los extremos boreal y austral del globo: dos navegaciones por los mares árticos y antárticos, realizadas con pocos meses de diferencia, que constituyen la entraña de este nuevo libro viajero. Una primavera polar transcurre a bordo de un barco de investigación noruego, se adentra en las islas árticas de Svalbard y continúa hacia el norte, en latitudes ya muy próximas al Polo Norte. En su relato, no solo nos habla de las peripecias de la navegación, sino de las exploraciones en busca del extremo septentrional del planeta, de los efectos del cambio climático, del calentamiento global y de las amenazas que penden, por causa de todo ello, sobre la humanidad. Octubre en el Cabo de Hornos recorre los canales, islas, estrechos, penínsulas, cordilleras y mares recoletos de Tierra de Fuego, y llega a la isla del Cabo de Hornos. Nos habla de los viajes de Magallanes, Raleigh, Fitz-Roy, Darwin y otros exploradores, y de Ushuaia, la ciudad del fin del mundo, y de su famoso penal. «Para mí, el hecho de viajar es lo que importa, y el cómo se lleve a cabo el viaje no me parece lo sustancial. La cuestión es moverse, irse, largarse del propio terruño con los sentidos abiertos, expuesto a dejarse cautivar por todo cuanto hay de novedoso en los caminos del mundo, lo mismo si son sendas de tierra que si han sido trazados, invisibles, sobre el agua o sobre el viento. En grupo o en solitario, en avión o en autocar, de día o de noche, por unas cuantas jornadas o por una larga temporada, rumbo al sur o rumbo al norte, hacia el este o el oeste, pernoctando en hoteles de lujo o en cabañas mugrientas... lo esencial es moverse, ya digo, "con el camino bajo los pies y el cielo sobre la cabeza", como pedía Stevenson. Solo así aprendemos a mirarnos en los espejos del mundo.» Javier Reverte La crítica ha dicho sobre Confines... «Javier Reverte, que es un discípulo de Ulises y un heredero de Heródoto, ha viajado a los confines del planeta: a los polos, una tierra de hielo, nieve y soledad.» La Razón «Confines es un gran libro que destila pasión viajera. Una obra que fascinará desde sus primeras páginas a los apasionados de la aventura y la exploración, los enamorados de los mapas y los amantes de la buena literatura.» Viajar «Hasta hace no mucho, era costumbre entre los marineros otorgar a aquellos que habían doblado el cabo de Hornos el derecho a sentarse con un pie en la mesa. Con su nuevo libro, Confines, Javier Reverte se ha ganado el derecho a sentarse como le plazca, mientras sus lectores disfrutan de su precioso viaje por los extremos del mundo.» Viajar

Javier Reverte - Corazón ​de Ulises
En ​este libro acompañamos a Javier Reverte en su viaje por Grecia, Turquía y Egipto. 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. Corazón de Ulises nos enseña a viajar con la cultura a cuestas.

Javier Reverte - Dios, ​el diablo y la aventura
Con ​este libro, el escritor y viajero Javier Reverte regresa a su territorio favorito: África. Pero esta vez no lo hace para contarnos sus andanzas, sino para narrar la vida del misionero jesuita Pedro Paez, nacido en un pueblo de Madrid en el siglo XVI y primer europeo que alcanzó a ver las fuentes del Nilo azul en Etiopía. Pedro Paez, gran desconocido para el público español e incluso para muchos historiadores, fue un hombre de cualidades excepcionales: Políglota, hombre de acción, intelectual y arquitecto, convirtió a dos emperadores etíopes a la fe de Roma, recorrió antes que ningun otro europeo los territorios del sur del Yemen, levantó un palacio en piedra de dos plantas en la orillas del lago Tana y dejó escrito en portugués un imponente libro –no traducido al castellano- de carácter científico referido a Etiopía. Desde la amenidad, el rigor y la pasión, Javier Reverte nos dibuja el perfil de Paez enmarcado en su tiempo: la España de los Austrias en pleno periodo de hegemonía política. También nos habla de los azarosos viajes de los navegantes portugueses por el oceáno Índico, de la fundación y las misiones de la compañía de Jesús y del África ignorada y remota de los siglos XVI y XVII. En este libro se funden la épica de un tiempo y la lírica fruto del hondo humanismo que destila siempre la pluma de Reverte y que sin duda apasionará desde sus primeras líneas a quien lo abra.

Javier Reverte - El ​médico de Ifni
Clara, ​una mujer de veintiocho años, recibe en Madrid la noticia de la muerte de su padre, Gerardo Canabal, a quien no conoció. Conmocionada, decide viajar a Sidi Ifni, en Marruecos, el lugar en donde su padre ejerció como médico militar durante los días en que la plaza era colonia española. Después, se desplaza a los campamentos del Frente Polisario cerca de Tindouf, donde su progenitor pasó los últimos años de su vida y donde encontró la muerte. Durante ese viaje tras el rastro del padre desaparecido, Clara descubrirá una historia de amor, de traiciones, chantajes, idealismo y sueños rotos, de hombres apasionados y románticos, y también de hombres sin escrúpulos. Al tiempo, se verá seducida por la sensualidad y el aroma de aventura de un mundo que no conoce: el desierto, el Sur, las gentes que lo pueblan, su lucha, su dignidad, su fracaso y su melancolía. Reseña: «Una novela que conjuga los vientos y el aroma de la épica y la lírica.» Viajar
