Ésta es la primera antología de narrativa contemporánea que se publica en España. Los autores de varias generaciones aquí reunidos, con el aporte de tres cuentos cada uno, representan una tradición creativa de extraordinaria vivacidad, iniciada por el legendario Juan Bosch, considerado como el padre de la cuentística dominicana, y que hoy se halla en pleno auge. En estas historias intensas e insólitas, vibra la compleja realidad de la República Dominicana, con ese estilo de vida lúdico que hace de contrapeso a una sensibilidad a menudo amarga, oscura y turbia. Los cuentos de esta antología abarcan los más variados temas tales como; amores desenfrenados, o improbables, crueles, insostenibles o incestuosos; episodios grotescos de una dictadura violenta; escenas de una infancia mágica; supersticiones y desventuras. Esta obra también se conoce como "Antología del cuento Dominicano".

A young girl flees Nazi-occupied Germany with her family and best friend, only to discover that the overseas refuge they had been promised is an illusion in this “powerful and affecting” (Kirkus Reviews) debut novel, perfect for fans of The Nightingale, All the Light We Cannot See, and Schindler’s List. Before everything changed, young Hannah Rosenthal lived a charmed life. But now, in 1939, the streets of Berlin are draped with red, white, and black flags; her family’s fine possessions are hauled away; and they are no longer welcome in the places that once felt like home. Hannah and her best friend, Leo Martin, make a pact: whatever the future has in store for them, they’ll meet it together. Hope appears in the form of the S.S. St. Louis, a transatlantic liner offering Jews safe passage out of Germany. After a frantic search to obtain visas, the Rosenthals and the Martins depart on the luxurious ship bound for Havana. Life on board the St. Louis is like a surreal holiday for the refugees, with masquerade balls, exquisite meals, and polite, respectful service. But soon ominous rumors from Cuba undermine the passengers’ fragile sense of safety. From one day to the next, impossible choices are offered, unthinkable sacrifices are made, and the ship that once was their salvation seems likely to become their doom. Seven decades later in New York City, on her twelfth birthday, Anna Rosen receives a strange package from an unknown relative in Cuba, her great-aunt Hannah. Its contents will inspire Anna and her mother to travel to Havana to learn the truth about their family’s mysterious and tragic past, a quest that will help Anna understand her place and her purpose in the world. The German Girl sweeps from Berlin at the brink of the Second World War to Cuba on the cusp of revolution, to New York in the wake of September 11, before reaching its deeply moving conclusion in the tumult of present-day Havana. Based on a true story, this masterful novel gives voice to the joys and sorrows of generations of exiles, forever seeking a place called home.

New York Times bestselling author Maria Dueñas returns with The Vineyard, a magnificent story of ambition, heartbreak, and desire set in the 1860s Mexico, Cuba, and Spain—perfect for fans of Kate Morton and Kristin Hannah. Mauro Larrea’s fortune, the result of years of hardship and toil, comes crashing down on the heels of a calamitous event. Swamped by debt and uncertainty, he gambles the last of his money in a daring play that wins him an abandoned house and a vineyard an ocean away. Mauro travels to Andalusia de Jerez in Spain with every intention of selling the property and returning to Mexico. That is, until he meets the unsettling Soledad Montalvo, the wife of a London wine merchant, who bursts into his life unannounced, determined to protect her family’s legacy. Before long, Larrea finds himself immersed in the rich culture of the sherry trade. As his feelings for Soledad ripen into a consuming passion, he seeks to restore the vineyard to its former glory. From the turbulent young Mexican republic to flourishing Havana, and onward to the fertile vineyards of Jerez in the second half of the nineteenth century, María Dueñas’s new novel takes place on both sides of the Atlantic, the New World and the Old. This story of family intrigue vividly conjures the noise and grit of silver mines, and the earthier lure of ancient vineyards and magnificent cities whose splendor has faded. Here is a story of courage in the face of adversity and of a destiny forever altered by the force of passion.

"Los hombres son como los perfumes. En un instante, sin más juicio que mi ágil olfato, o me enamoro de ellos o los echo a un lado". Marisol es una exuberante poeta y archivista de historia que vive en el Miami contemporáneo. Al igual que su ciudad adoptiva, ella es un espíritu libre y sensual. Nacida en Cuba y transplantada a una temprana edad en la Florida, lleva dentro una nostalgia por la legendaria isla en que nació y que apenas recuerda. Su pasión por los olores la inspira a adoptar un perfume diferente cada vez que se embarca en una nueva relación amorosa. Tras la muerte de su querida abuela y una sucesión de malogrados romances sensuales, Marisol concluye que debe liberarse de las ataduras de su historia, abandonar causas perdidas y refugiarse en el único santuario que siempre va con ella: su propio corazón errante. Liberada al fin de su añoranza por la vieja Habana, "el París del Caribe", su romántico exilio está llamado a emprender una nueva vida. Privada de reclamar La Habana como suya, opta por su verdadero destino: París. Y es así que Marisol se lanza a desbrozar el camino hacia su futuro. Salvando la distancia entre el Miami efervescente de hoy y la mística Cuba de ayer, Siempre París es un canto a la geografía y la memoria, una obra repleta de humor, pasión y personajes inolvidables.

La mejor historia está siempre por vivir. Un giro al destino. Un viaje. Una segunda oportunidad. Incapaz de recomponer sus propios pedazos, la profesora Blanca Perea acepta a la desesperada lo que anticipa como un tedioso proyecto académico. Su estabilidad personal acaba de desplomarse, su matrimonio ha saltado por los aires. Confusa y devastada, la huida a la insignificante universidad californiana de Santa Cecilia es su única opción. El campus que la acoge resulta, sin embargo, mucho más seductor de lo previsto, y la labor de catalogar el legado de su viejo compatriota y profesor Andrés Fontana, fallecido décadas atrás, dista enormemente de ser tan insustancial como prometía. A medida que se afana en vertebrar la memoria de aquel hispanista olvidado, junto a ella va ganando cercanía Daniel Carter, un colega americano veterano y atractivo que no ocupa el sitio que debería ocupar. Entre ambos hombres, uno a través de sus testimonios póstumos y otro con su complicidad creciente, Blanca se verá arrastrada hacia un entramado de sentimientos encontrados, intrigas soterradas y puertas sin cerrar. Antes de encontrar respuestas, Blanca aún tiene mucho que entender. Con la misma narrativa lírica y personajes inolvidables característicos de El Tiempo entre Costuras, María Dueñas nos regala una segunda novela luminosa, un tributo a las segundas oportunidades, la reconciliación y la reconstrucción.
