I am from Medellin, Colombia. <br />I am a writer of heart. <br />Until moment I have written: <br /><br />“Autumnal love” in English and Spanish.<br />“Good morning Dusk <br />“¿Guilty or innocent?” <br />“Sweet and little Zoraida <br />“Thorns on the green path <br />“Towards the Light” in English and Spanish.<br />“The persecuted” <br />“Beyond death” <br />“My dear Lucero” <br />“Stones in the soul” <br /> “Black village and its tenebrous nights” <br />“Jumping, Magic Puppy” in English and Spanish.<br />“Terror… in the womb of Teresa” <br />“All by Love” <br />“Prisoners of tradition, the real story” in English and Spanish.<br />“Afternoon was sad” I write at the present Time.<br />“Musings of a Walker” in English and Spanish”.<br />This work is a compilation of more than 500 short writings which I have done during my long hours of meditation and reflection.<br /><br />With this book I wanted to honor God, our Lord Jesus Christ, because He always gives me the inspiration I need to write.<br /><br />This book is too dedicated to my dear Indian friend Rajender Parshad Arora, the only person who have helped me so much to public my many works. I wait, with all my heart, my God gives him so much happiness in this world and can get all his goals<br /><br />In all the writings there are positive messages of love to God and to the fellow men. We must always repeat what the Hymn of Joy says: "Come, sing, live singing, live dreaming the new sun in which men will be brothers again ..."<br /><br />I chose the name of The Walker of XXI century, because although I have not traveled physically, in my restless mind I do it at all times carrying messages of peace that God Our Lord Jesus Christ taught us when he said: "My peace I leave you, my peace I give you".<br /><br />I chose for this book the song Singings or Walker because it identifies with me and invite me to reflect and think in the path I have ran, so I cannot repeat the same mistakes and living my life loving and helping others, because this is the mission Jesus Christ left to all us.

A<br /> lo largo de su vida, Eugenio d’Ors fue nacionalista catalán, sindicalista,<br /> monárquico y, finalmente, falangista. También fue un intelectual<br /> extraordinario y uno de los autores más influyentes de la España de la<br /> primera mitad del siglo XX. Admirable desde un punto de vista cultural e<br /> incómodo desde una perspectiva política, es inevitable que d’Ors haya sido<br /> defendido muchas veces y condenado al olvido muchas más. Una figura<br /> tan relevante, compleja y llena de contrastes necesitaba una biografía que<br /> examinara unitariamente todas sus facetas. De un modo exhaustivo y nada<br /> complaciente, Eugenio d’Ors (1881-1954) saca a la luz al pensador brillante,<br /> al ideólogo arrollador, al escritor original y al hombre políticamente<br /> cambiante, para reivindicar su verdadera importancia en el contexto catalán,<br /> español y europeo del pasado siglo.

前作「僕の故郷だった」(2014) で多くの読者を魅了した、クリスティアーノ・パラフィオリーティが、自身の故郷シチリアのガラーティ・マメルティーノを舞台に繰り広げられるストーリーを再び描く。新たなる登場人物、新たな趣き、そして新たなる感動が、隠れた想いと多くの表情をゆっくり解き放ちながら心のパレットを彩っていきます。本作の主題であるシチリアの心は、それぞれの物語の中で息づき、遠く離れた地の哀愁の念を漂わせながらも、情熱的で純粋でもあるこの地へ読み手を惹き込みながら、ゆっくりと露わになっていくのです。時とは、単なる概念でしかなく、この島とそこに生きる人々への愛と思い出を溢れさせながら、一瞬、昨日そして今日の瞬間とが絡み合っていくのです。読み進めていくうちに、作者と故郷との強い絆を感じさせ、長年に渡り苦しめる先祖代々続くともいえる愛と思い出の狭間で、シチリアの心という甘い病に宿命的に魅了された作者がさまようのです。<br />

Descubre la figura de Chesterton en una biografía que repasa la vida de este intelectual victoriano amante de la polémica <br /><br />Esta biografía es seductora porque también lo fue Chesterton, un periodista que alimentó durante toda su vida la pasión por la política y la historia, la literatura y la filosofía, el cristianismo y la familia. <br /><br />Le tocó vivir entre 1874 y 1936, en el Londres de la época victoriana y de la primera guerra mundial, donde bullían Bernard Shaw y H. G. Wells, el socialismo y el capitalismo, las tesis de Marx y Malthus, de Freud y Nietzsche, de Comte y Darwin. <br /><br />Amante de la polémica y el debate, con su deslumbrante forma de hablar y de escribir entró como un elefante en la cacharrería de esa modernidad. Pero solo tuvo amigos, pues su bondad y su sentido del humor fueron tan grandes como su corpulencia y su apetito. <br /><br />Conocer a Chesterton es una necesidad y un placer, porque sus argumentos son la mejor artillería, pesada y ligera, para estos tiempos de posverdad.<br /><br />José Ramón Ayllón ha publicado en Palabra Ética razonada, Antropología paso a paso, 10 ateos cambian de autobús y Palabras en la arena.<br /><br />Compagina los libros y las conferencias con las clases de Antropología en la Universidad de Navarra.<br /><br />joserra.ayllon@gmail.com<br />www.jrayllon.es

<b>From the best-selling author of <I>The Circle,</I> the true story of a young Yemeni-American man, raised in San Francisco, who dreams of resurrecting the ancient art of Yemeni coffee but finds himself trapped in Sana'a by civil war--and his riveting tale of escape.</b><br /><br />Mokhtar Alkhanshali grew up in San Francisco, one of seven siblings brought up by Yemeni immigrants in a tiny apartment. At age twenty-four, unable to pay for college, he works as a doorman, until a statue of an Arab raising a cup of coffee awakens something in him. He sets out to learn the rich history of coffee in Yemen and the complex art of tasting and identifying varietals. He travels to Yemen and visits countless farms, collecting samples, eager to bring improved cultivation methods to the countryside. And he is on the verge of success when civil war engulfs Yemen in 2015. The US Embassy closes, Saudi bombs began to rain down on the country, and Mokhtar is trapped in Yemen. Desperate to escape, he embarks on a passage that has him negotiating with dueling political factions and twice kidnapped at gunpoint. With no other options, he hires a skiff to take him, and his coffee samples, across the Red Sea. A heart-pounding true story that weaves together the history of coffee, the ongoing Yemeni civil war, and the courageous journey of a young man--a Muslim and a US citizen--following the most American of dreams.

<DIV>This is the remarkable story of how Rod Temperton worked his way up from a fish factory to become one of the most successful songwriters of all time. Temperton first embarked on a career in music with the funk band Heatwave, for whom he wrote the international hits "Boogie Nights" and "Always and Forever," before his songwriting talent caught the attention of legendary producer Quincy Jones. For Michael Jackson's <I>Off the Wall </I>album, Temperton penned both "Rock with You" and the title track. Three years later, continuing his relationship with the pair, Temperton started work on what would become the bestselling album of all time—Michael Jackson's <I>Thriller</I>—writing three songs, including the now legendary title track. Yet despite collaborating with some of music's biggest stars, including Donna Summer and Michael McDonald, Temperton was reclusive and seldom gave interviews, one of the exceptions being with author Jed Pitman, whose Sony Award-winning radio documentary on Temperton allowed him unprecedented access to the great man.</DIV>
