"Joe, a 35-year-old advertising copywriter for a slick New York company, feels disillusioned with his life.

The voice overwhelms Joe and he starts to listen to it, camping out on the front steps of his stoop, waiting for instructions. The media takes note. And soon he has become a story, a media sensation, the center of a storm. When the voice tells him to zgo West,y he does, all the while searching for this Man, this mysterious voice that won’t leave him alone. Until it does.

"Düsterbusch ist kein Ort für Helden. Nicht Preußen, nicht Sachsen, ein Kaff am Rande des Spreewalds. Anton wohnt hinter dem Mähdrescher Friedhof und träumt vom großen Leben. Bis er eine glänzende Idee hat: Sein Dorf soll Metropole werden, mit U-Bahn-Anschluss und Leuchtreklamen. Mit einer Handvoll Freunden macht er sich daran, mitten in der DDR einen Szene-Club nach Londoner Vorbild aufzuziehen. Alexander Kühne erzählt die Geschichte von einem, der bleibt und kämpft – aber nicht politisch, sondern mit den Waffen der Popkultur. Er erzählt von den großen Träumen im Kleinen und vom Scheitern einer Utopie." -- cover.

Hospitals are flooded and Jeevan and his brother barricade themselves inside an apartment as life disintegrates around them. Fifteen years later, Kirsten is an actress with the Traveling Symphony.

"Tras dedicarse por entero a formar una familia, dejando atrás proyectos profesionales, Emma llega a la madurez de sus 48 años. Sus dos hijos ya se han marchado de casa y la relación con su marido ha perdido el encanto de los primeros años. Cuando su cuerpo de mujer atractiva y sensual muestra los primeros signos de cambio, Emma se angustia y teme perder los atributos de su feminidad. En medio de una vorágine de pensamientos negativos, un hecho fortuito la lleva a entrar en contacto con una realidad ajena a la suya donde encuentra una inesperada pasión que cuestiona su apacible rutina y la lleva a descubrir el gozo, la sexualidad y las posibilidades de realización de esta nueva etapa de su vida. El intenso calor de la luna cuenta la historia de Emma, un personaje flaubertiano que se rebela contra el papel que le impone la sociedad a la mujer madura. Gioconda Belli explora la identidad femenina en la menopausia, cuando la mujer debe ir más allá de los mitos que centran su valor en la belleza juvenil y la fertilidad, para descubrir un nuevo erotismo y el poder de ser ella misma." -- Amazon.com

Su vida es perfecta, no como la suya. Pero un día ve algo. Sucede muy deprisa, pero es suficiente. ¿Y si Jess y Jason no son tan felices como ella cree? ¿Y si nada es lo que parece? Tú no la conoces.

"El juicio contra el padrastro de la joven Johana Márquez está a punto de comenzar. A él asiste una embarazada Amaia Salazar, la inspectora de la Policía Foral que un año atrás había resuelto los crímenes del llamado basajaun, que sembraron de terror el valle del Baztán. Amaia también había reunido las pruebas inculpatorias contra Jasón Medina, que imitando el modus operandi del basajaun había asesinado, violado y mutilado a Johana, la adolescente hija de su mujer. De pronto, el juez anuncia que el juicio debe cancelarse: el acusado acaba de suicidarse en los baños del juzgado. Ante la expectación y el enojo que la noticia provoca entre los asistentes, Amaia es reclamada por la policía: el acusado dejó una nota suicida dirigida a la inspectora, una nota que contiene un escueto e inquietante mensaje: "Tarttalo". Esa sola palabra, que remite al personaje fabuloso del imaginario popular vasco, destapará una trama terrorífica que envuelve a la inspectora hasta un trepidante final."--Page 4 of cover.
