Presentation
The Cámara Argentina del Libro presents its third catalogue of rights of Spanish language
publications of Argentine and other Spanish language authors.
This year, Argentina will be the guest of honor at the Frankfurt Book Fair, the most important world
event in publishing. This has generated a growing interest among Argentine publishing companies
in the promotion of the best-known works in their vast collections.
In this issue can be appreciated a variety of topics from many different Argentine publishers. It is
evident the valuable and up to date contents, the quality of the authors and the value of
the contents, so we hope this catalogue will spark the interest of publishers of other languages.
Our catalogue features publications in areas such as Literature, Humanities, Social Sciences,
Religion, Art and Design, Technology and books for children and adolescents, among others.
It is organized alphabetically by publisher and includes all technical information and bibliographical
data on each book as well as a description of the work, author(s)’ biographies and images aimed
at making information accessible to all those interested in the Argentine Publishing world.
The same catalogue is available on our website (www.editores.org.ar/rightscatalogueargentina2010).

RICOS FLACOS Y GORDOS POBRES - La alimentación en crisis
RICH PEOPLE THIN AND POOR PEOPLE FAT - Crisis vs nourishment
What do people eat, if given the chance? In which ways have human eating habits changed
lately? Is it true that there is not enough food to meet the current needs of the entire human
population? Patricia Aguirre, anthropologist and recognized expert in the subject, provides
answers to these and many other questions regarding the scarcely explored matter of food as a
historical, social and cultural fact. And she queries the mostly accepted concept of eating as a
“biological” and “natural” act. While taking into account that food security means the right to
secure proper food, the author describes the present consumption strategies that have made
poor people to be fat in their scarcity and rich ones to be thin in their wealth.

Drinkable water has become the strategic resource of 21st century. It is so scarce that it
comprises only 2,5 per cent of the total amount of water on earth. Any source of water that
runs out or gets polluted, is lost for ever. This situation puts the world in the edge of an
unprecedented humanitarian catastrophe. The attention focused on oil, in the past and still
nowadays, may in the near future turn to water, to the point of transforming it into the cause of
serious armed conflicts. Powerful countries are totally conscious of the worsening of this
situation in the next decades, with intense droughts, starvation and scarce safe water.
Having misused their own natural resources, now they are focusing on those regions that still
keep theirs. Our survival as communities, and that of the planet, depends on our ability to
preserve them.

LA HISTORIA DESBOCADA - Nuevas crónicas de la globalización
RUNAWAY HISTORY - New globalization chronicles
According to the great Argentine writer and philosopher José Pablo Feinmann, “we are in the
middle of a runaway history. Facts do not have sense, rationality, dialectic or internal logic either.
Heisenberg and his principle of uncertainty take possession of history. There is no truth. Following
Nietschze’s phrase (“There are no facts, just interpretations”), Foucault will prove that the truth
is a creation of the power. History is not predictable. It is dominated by chance and penetrated
by uncertainty. It is not dominated by men any more. It is no longer the history of class struggle
and the coming of socialism. Neither that of Christ’s martyrdom and humanity’s final
redemption nor that of the liberation from all fears and all needs by means of science end
economy. It has gone runaway and we not only ignore its course but we fear it.”

THE PALESTINE – ISRAELI CONFLICT - 100 questions and answers
One hundred questions and one hundred answers to go deep into the roots and the hard
present times of the Palestine-Israeli conflict. This could be a way to define this remarkably clear

develops an introductory guide to unravel the most frequent doubts, convinced that complex
questions need simple answers. As a result, the book is an essential tool to get into the logic of
an old conflict with dramatic present circumstances.

PEPE MUJICA - De tupamaro a presidente
PEPE MUJICA - From tupamaro to president
José Mujica began his political life as a young anarchist at the age of 14; since then, he has
travelled a long and hard way, following always the path of dignity. In this warm and
enlightening interview by María Esther Gilio, carried out in two meetings at Mujica’s home in
Rincón del Cerro, Montevideo, victories and set backs are remembered as well as his principles,
honesty and passion for learning and working. “Pepe”, as everybody calls the Uruguayan
president, knew the glory of people’s recognition when, as a young tupamaro, took up arms to
defend his compatriots’ dream of justice; he would later meet pain and the terrible experience of
thirteen years in jail under subhuman conditions; and then, the return to political life without
arms in his hands.

LA REVOLUCIÓN SILENCIOSA - Biotecnología y vida cotidiana
THE SILENT REVOLUTION - Biotechnology and everyday life
In any Argentine, Spanish, Turkish or Australian spot, neighbours talk about the domain and
possibilities of genetic information, regarding the story of Dolly, the cloned sheep, Lionel Messi’s
physical development, or the gene of infidelity. Nobody gets surprised while hearing in the news
about “tailor made” babies conceived to heal their brothers, or about possibilities to choose in
advance eye colour or height of our children. Genes are in the move and they invade our daily
life step by step. In this book scientist Alberto Díaz commits himself to shed some light on
widespread confusion. Although still harmless, this confusion indicates a way and a kind of
social imaginary.

TEN THEORIES THAT SHOOK THE WORLD - From Copernicus to the Big Bang
This fascinating work goes through the ten fundamental scientific theories that revolutionized
human thought and that form the backbone of the explanations we take as natural today.
Besides the analysis of these brilliant ideas, there is a look over their context, going deep into the
culture and the prejudice of each time. A captivating trip across the building of modern science,
which is nothing else that the permanent desire to explain the world.

Science fiction has deep roots in the history of western culture: its expression has been
present all along the 20th century and into the 21st one, from literature and films to a diverse
kind of languages. The growth of science fiction is not a conventional narration. It is neither an
attempt to resume and describe the origin of this kind of narration, nor to make a record of its
main works, writers or tendencies. Its purpose is to suggest a trip through certain ways
science fiction has taken to picture one of its main themes: the relationship between men
and technology.

PRELIMINARY STUDY: Osvaldo Bayer
The paraguayan pain and What yerba mate plantations are, were first published in Montevideo,
short after the death of their author, the Spanish anarchist Rafael Barrett. During his short stay
in America he became a revolutionary, wrote a dozen of unforgettable books and founded a
literary style. A style considered to be brilliant by the likes of Augusto Roa Bastos and Jorge Luis
Borges. This unique edition of Barrett’s two great books has the added value of Osvaldo Bayer’s
essay, especially made for the occasion. “This work has deeply moved me, and I need to say it and
to write it -confesses Bayer-. Barrett’s wisdom invades us, showing to us the very images of
unfairness, the perfidy of a system that divides human beings between those who hold power,
those who are subdued and those who resist.”
Author: RAFAEL BARRETT
Born in Spain in 1876, arrived to Argentina in 1903 and one year later to Paraguay. A militant anarchist, he
fought against poverty and unfairness and, in the meantime, he managed to write a handful of unparaleled
books. “Barrett is the most brilliant intellectual of the European generation to put a foot on Argentine and
Paraguayan soil”, as writer and historian Osvaldo Bayer says about him in the study especially written for
this edition.

This book narrates the conflict between nature and society and its social consequences in the
Iberian Peninsula and Latin America, from the Mayas to Cervantes. History and ecology go
together. In Europe, from the cities, housing, food and plagues during the Middle Age; woodlands
and farming and deforestation; the matter of water and transhumant cattle in Cervantes’ Spain.
In America, references go from the irrigated lands of Teotihuacan and the Maya environmental
crisis, to the giant stone heads in Easter Island. The bison’s culture and solar urbanism in North
America. The conquest of Central America and its ecological changes. Slaver farms and the
Portuguese Empire islands. An analysis based upon the notion of symbiosis and shared evolution
between human societies and ecosystems. A historical review of the destruction of the
environment and to the Darwinian concept of evolution, where the strongest ones prevail with
the subsequent domination of men over nature.
Author: ANTONIO ELIO BRAILOVSKY
Political Economy graduate from Buenos Aires University (UBA), he is an outstanding figure in Argentine
ecology. His professional commitment to the environmental studies has been expressed both in teaching, on
public duty and in the writing of many books, some of them emblematic. Current lecturer at UBA and

at Buenos Aires’ legislative body and assistant ombudsman with regard to Environment and Urbanism.

THE SECRET OF THE GENIUS 2 - Strategies and working methods of the great creators
Stevenson used to write while sitting on his bed as if he were in a hypnotic trance. Vázquez
Montalban left his desk once and again to give a touch to his cooking. Dickens read his texts
aloud to find the right tone. Flaubert locked himself for months at his home in front of the Sena.
Cortázar loved to write at bars and he almost made no corrections. Calvino used to correct so
much that his originals looked like a big crossing out. In his second book about the secrets of the
great creators, the author invites us to a trip to the lives, the work and the ideas of brilliant
writers, artists and creators who have helped so much to make life worthwhile.

Daniel is 20 years old, he is an orphan and lives under the shadow of his dead father. He just
arrived in Buenos Aires from the country and in this initial journey he would know some aspects
of reality he may not even believe to be possible. In The dead compasses, the plot exceeds the
borders of the genre: in the nocturnal world where the story takes place, questions about
existence meet up with the most sordid places in the downtown area of Buenos Aires, the huge
bookcase at Daniel’s father’s house, prostitution and gambling. In his naive cynicism of youth,
Daniel approaches to human beings and things, believing he knows about them, only to realize
that they are not as he expected them to be. The story is complex and fascinating by itself,
with the added value of Roger Pla’s writing wisdom, which have made him one of the most
remarkable Argentine writers.
Author: ROGER PLA
Born in Rosario in 1912. Fatherless, although he could never complete his high school studies, he was a
literature teacher at the age of 21. He began to work as a journalist in 1936 and made a living out of a

to order books. Apart from this one, other of his memorable novels are Los robinsones (The robinsons) and
Paño verde (Green cloth).

ANALISIS DE DECISIONES ESTRATEGICAS - En entornos inciertos, cambientes
y complejos
This book is the result of theoretical research and the author's practice in this new discipline
called Decision Analysis. The understandings reached at many years of practice have enabled us
to understand that the use of the discipline requires changing our way of thinking about the
world. We must not only use new information, but also change the context in which we process
such information. This means that we must create new distinctions that apparently are natural,
given the biases towards the achievement of results, but that can be learned. Decision Analysis
has emerged from theory to practice to become a discipline able to balance the various factors
that exist in a decision.

Seamos libres y lo demás no importa nada - Vida de San Martín
Let us be free and the rest won't matter at all - Life of San Martín
The figure of the Libertador General José de San Martin is essential in understanding the history
of Latin America. More than 150 years after his death, it continues to set the course: over time,
his figure has been repeatedly studied and exalted. However, his life and his epic have been
valued in different ways. In some cases, that valuation resulted in a sort of distortion of
historical reality. Without concessions, taking into account all of the previous studies, Norberto
Galasso has performed a patient task of research and comparison of sources to present a
San Martin that rises in his fundamental role, in his true human and revolutionary dimension.

Concepciones de teatro - Poéticas teatrales y bases epistemológicas
Conceptions of theatre - Teatrical poetics and epistemologic basis
After centuries of activity, various ways of understanding and doing theatre have come up. In
Argentina, during the last twenty years, studies on theatre have grown vastly and have been
enriched by integrating new orientations on the basis of innovative perspectives developed in the
international panorama: Philosophy of Theatre, Comparative Theatre studies, Comparative
Poetics, and Cartography of Theatre. This book takes part of this renovation broadening the
analytic tools by propounding the concepts of "conception of theatre" and "epistemological
basis" that can be applied to the description of diverse poetics (the author analyses deeply Ibsen,
Strindberg Maeterlinck and O'Neill's drama) and the history of theatre.

Perón. Reflections of a life
Juan Domingo Perón was one of the central political figures in Latin America and the world in the
twentieth century. His character is crucial in understanding not only the history but also the
present of the region and remains an important focus of discussion. Amid this controversy,
there are many intellectuals who have attempted the complex task of writing his biography.
This documented work uses these reflections as a starting point and follows Peron’s life through
the writings and documents that both he and his time period have left us. Most importantly,
it exhaustively reviews the complex and diverse literature devoted to Peron and Peronism
throughout history.

La casa M
The "M" house
Clara, a teenager who, due to reasons beyond her will, had to return to Argentina along with her
family from the exile in Spain, has to begin a new life in a small town. The new environment,
where the past becomes omnipresent, triggers conflicting interests, old resentments and
forgotten silences. The argument flows around an old mystery concerning the Dictatorship in a
particular house of the town. To unveil this mystery, the novel appeals to suspense and
detective's logics, with characters that grow and are transformed as they establish new ties.
Eventually, the truth allows overcoming the distress of the past and allows justice to be done.

Poder y desaparición - Los campos de concentración en Argentina
Power and disappearance - Concentration camps of Argentina
The sinister ways of exerting power in Argentina during the last military dictatorship in Argentina,
the concentration camps, torture, death and the mechanisms used to make people "disappear"
have developed a new category that goes beyond mere murder. The author -who lived this
process from the inside- not only propounds a detailed review of these phenomena, but
analyses as well the complex basis that allowed the mechanisms of disappearance to work
during the dictatorship. Pilar Calveiro involves her own personal experience with her theoreticalcritical competence to think the very limits of politics, writing one of the fundamental essays

El cine en su época - Una historia política del filme
The purpose of this work is to unveil the links created between contemporary art and historic
peripeteia characterized by speed, fusion and change. The evolution of political and social
history is very noticeable in the structures and contents of fil, and in their advances in the field
of audio-visual narration, such as television and digital imaging. Information contained in movies
in many cases allow trailing the underlying currents of modern whirlwind. From D. W. Griffith to
Lras von Trier or Paul Verhoeven, from communism to neo-liberalism, through fascism, the two
world wars and arriving at neo-capitalism globalization, this book makes an effort in synthetic
understanding that allows both the film student and the general public to get vividly closer to a
universe of works and events clinging to the red thread of dialectic interpretation.

Hacia una literatura sin adjetivos
The danger that lies ahead of the children´s and youth literature as regards of its classification
is to be presented in advance as "for children" or "for young people". The adjective should be
secondary, because the core of an enjoyable work for children and young readers does not come
from its adaptability to a target group, but from its quality. When we speak about writing in every
subject or genre, the noun is always more important than the adjective.

La semiótica de los bordes - Apuntes de metodología semiótica
The author responds to the question "what has to change semiotics to continue being
effective?", with his reflections on the challenge of accepting the dynamics of meaning and
constructing brief ways to explain it. Because in the confines of the semiotic worlds, at any given
moment in history, a social group is able to construct the meaning of the phenomena of its
environment, the entropic boundaries are present that will require a new semiotics that exceeds
-in their wealth and creativity- the existing one. This books responds to fundamental research
issues such as what is a hypothesis, which is a body of information, when can one say that something is semiotically explained, and therefore constitute a valuable tool for deseigning a research
project in the area of Social Sciences.

If you find out you are not who you are supposed to be, who are you? How far a secret can
disrupt a family map? Does it makes you sick to know what you don't want to know? Pedro
Miller, the adult son of a Jewish family that only values material prosperity, finds by chance a
letter hidden in the car manual of an old Mercury coupe he is putting together again. And
he becomes a hostage of conspiracy and lies, to which nobody is innocent. In the labyrinthic
world of the main character's original family and the one he creates , Juan Carlos Kreimer unveils
the deceptions Argentinians used for several generations trying to calm themselves.While the
original "peronism" of the forties and fifties, and the confusion and social tragedy following it
"do happen as if nothing happens", they become the background of a search for an hypocrisy
called happiness.

Operación Masacre
Operation Massacre
On June 9th, 1956, two generals revolt against the de facto government that had turned down
Perón in September ’55 in Argentina. This movement was brutally and illegally repressed, with
many victims, only seven of them killed in action. A group of civilians some of them very
vaguely linked with the complot, others completely out of it, were fusilladed in a waste deposit
in the outskirts of Buenos Aires. Some of them, miraculously survived. The author, a journalist,
tracked these survivors to reconstruct the facts, in perhaps the first “faction” novel ever written.
These book has been published in German, Dutch, Czech and is being translated into Portuguese
and French.

From Editorial Negro Absoluto, a new gamble on the noir genre has been launched, and right from its first four titles
it becomes the hope of much more. Led by the renowned writer Juan Sasturain, the collection Negro Absoluto
(Absolute Noir) gathers together prestigious authors with young writers willing to leave aside the dream of famein
order to be part of reality. It is a project of detective novels, set in different times and places of Buenos Aires, with
original detective sagas that open the game to new narrative territories from the genre's original rules.
The new series offers the reader a wide range of possibilities to dive into the underworld and the glamour of a city
full of secrets and contradictions.
EL Aventurador, una lectura de Oesterheld - una lectura de Oesterheld
When Oesterheld wrote –from the very first children’s stories published by La Prensa or the
“Bolsillitos” (Little pocket book) Collection to his purest militant comic strips during his last
months of clandestine activism, he did not make things up or invent or make conjectures;
Oesterheld would pursue. His entire life became his quest for pursuit. To pursue is to imagine, to
suppose, it is a risky proposition: to place the imagination, the power of invention before the
notion of conviction, before the body itself. That is to say to become responsible for what you
create (and believe). Oesterheld was an adventurer, one who conceived life as an adventure and
who lived it to the ultimate consequences.

Sangre Kosher
Joyfully and without exaggeration, I believe that with this novel, we are privy to the birth of a
new character. And that is no small matter. Most especially because we could say that, Kosher
Blood, a novel created within the framework of the noir or police thriller genre, allows us to state
with a certain degree of foreseeable enthusiasm, that we are witnesses to the coming into being
of an original detective. And it is true, though not enough, to define the story; because Ruth
Epelbaum is much more. She is a complete character, with a life of her own. She is an Argentinian
Jewish, of a certain age, who ends up- develops as- a detective. Whenever she goes to the
hairdresser’s or has tea in the kitchen with Gladys, her employee; whenever her indescribable
cousin Lea hooks her up with Chiquito Gold and they are purported to find the dodgy Deborah;
whenever she finds a body in the Tigre River or meets a guy on a bus to Parana.

Santeria
This Leo Oyola's powerful novel takes place in the days running up to Christmas of 1996, in
between the suburbs of Puerto Apache, on the southern edge of the Buenos Aires and El Jabuti,
in the Flores neighbourhood, parts of a Buenos Aires unfamiliar to tourists, and indeed to
literature itself.Santería takes place in at least two other places; it takes place in between the turn
of each ominous card and it takes place in the turbulent mind of our narrator, Fátima Sánchez,
also known as La Víbora Blanca (The White Viper). The story begins with the vision of a murder.
However, it quickly becomes a race against the clock to access our hero's soul and exorcise her
before she falls from grace.

El sindrome de Rasputin
Like a day-tripping Blade Runner, the Buenos Aires of El síndrome de Rasputín is even worse than
Ridley Scott's dystopia: metro tunnels have become homeless colonies; its skyline finds itself
permanently soaked by rain; the city's landmarks have been gutted by fire and its inhabitants are
paralysed by the fear of unexploded bombs left by the “Bicentenary Nationalists”. In Romero's
wonderful novel, the leading characters are three friends, united by all the symptoms that
identify them as suffers of Tourette's Syndrome. Beyond the help of any doctor, the three
loveable companions, Abelev, Maglier and Muishkin find themselves caught up in wild adventure,
held together by their solidarity alone.

Museo de la novela de la Eterna - (Primera novela buena)
The Museum of Eterna’s Novel - (The First Good Novel)
Macedonio Fernández defined the conditions for a novel´s poetic in Argentina and established in
Museo de la novela de la eterna the basis for a history of the genre. He proposes a direct
relationship with the great European poetics of the genre and defines here the specificity of the
tradition. He doesn´t think about the referent or the localization but the (irreverent) uses to
which the procedures and forms of the genre are subdued. Simply, he invents a new history,
founding the origin: he writes the first good novel and cancels the previous tradition. With this
act that erases any context, he integrates in the most typical of Argentinean traditions.

Adriana Buenos Aires - (Última novela mala)
Adriana Buenos Aires, as “the last bad novel”, was conceived by Macedonio Fernandez in
relationship with Museo de la novela de la Eterna, even his author proposed sometime to edit
both together, or one after the other. In spite it´s folletinesque nature – the love triangle through
a single conception –, it predicts the improvements and innovative proposals of Museo de la
novella de la Eterna, the “first good novel”, by displaying the trite procedures of the ruling
realism in XIX Century´s Argentinean narrative. It is said, even more if we consider that both
were written simultaneously, that one served as a basis for the other in that aesthetic search for
the future novel.

Cuentos selectos
Selected stories
The Andersonian tale-craft offers a wide range of searches, of which this selection wants to be a
display: the poetic tone, the alienated gaze that produces magical elements and the ones
privileged by fantastic literature, the use of autobiographical facts, the humor, the intertext, the
parody of crime genre and the predilection for the highly concentrated narrative pieces.
The building of genuine worlds characterizes the true creators. When the miracle happens, it is
frequent for the writing to become both a personal and a plural exercise: a revelatory point of
access for the others. So it is the reality and effect of a few of the experiences imagined by the
constant Anderson Imbert.

Piazzolla, la música límite
Piazzolla. Borderline music
This book explores the aesthetics of Piazzolla’s work, which constituted a unique heartbeat of the
body and the city that it does not explain with the ‘evolution of the tango’. A review of his style:
a consistent “language” that has crossed different music (Bartók, Bach, Troilo, jazz) with the
dramatic pulse of the tango. Among others, the key points discussed here are: to demonstrate
why Piazzolla is the latest mutation of this gender, to place the limit nature (between popular
and classical) that his music imposes; to locate the elusive but persistent seduction of Piazzolla
with jazz or reflect about the encounter of Borges and Piazzolla in the language of our culture.

Poetic Work
Testimony if the astonishment and endless temptation facing the spectacle of the world, the
adoration of the earthly shapes and the feeling of it´s impossible possession, like the permanent
call of a never realized dream, where the powers of seduction are the central fire of the human
adventure, the poetic work of Enrique Molina, started in 1941 with the publishing of Las cosas y
el delirio, continues until the present day with a career of an intense vital tone, that situates it in
an exceptional place in the higher levels of the Latin American poetry. This volume accounts that
singular experience where the imaginary and the real melt in a single point with the coincidence
of existing.

Cuentos II. El gato de Chesire
Stories II. The Chesire Cat.
Enrique Anderson Imbert stated about that work: “I always preferred the brief forms: they fit
better a relativist theory about the world and a imaginist practice of literature. In my tales, even
in my novels, the smallest artificial unity is the metaphor, the prosaic poem, the magical
situation, the fantastic game. I would convey pure intuitions if I could, but technique forces me
to give a shape to them. That shape is drawn in two kinds of ink, the first can be erased and the
other is indelible, so, when matter fades, the track of the intuition remains as a smile in the air.
It´s the smile of Chesire´s cat. Written throughout almost forty years, it´s natural for these
miniatures to show successive literary isms”.

Theatre 3. Visit. Marathon. The Beaded curtain. Finlandia. Apocalypse tomorrow.
Each of Monti's plays explores existencial and aesthetical conflicts and doubts. In his particular
and unique poetic creation language appears under a strict polysemy, not allowing prejudices or
conceptualizations about reality to limit the theatrical image. Maybe one of the most
remarkable features of that poetic is the introduction of highly literary teachings and the
preeminence of the poetic and metalinguistic function in the character´s discourse, which, as his
textuality evolves, turns into quoted discourses that constantly establish relationships of
dependency with the sociopolitical context.

Cine clásico, El - Itinerarios, variaciones y replanteos de una idea
Classic cinema - Itineraries, variations and restatements of an idea
What is classic cinema? This book does not define the classics of cinema nor does it discuss a
canon. While other arts outlined their perceptions of the modern, for several decades cinema
established certain ways of showing and narrating on a world scale. Nevertheless, that cinematographic way has manifested itself as very permeable, complex and paradoxical in its structure, as
well as especially open to frontier traffic. Those aspects and ways insistently designed as
classic are to be revisited today from the perspective of the modern adventure embodied by
cinema for over a century now.

Juguetería filosófica, Una - Cine, cronofotografía y arte digital
Philosophical toys - Cinema, chronophotography and digital art
Throughout the nineteenth century, philosophical toys promoted and accompanied the
development of studies on movement, oscillating between mere curiosity for optical effects and
a physiological contention on the workings of the sense of sight. Somehow prevailing,
philosophical toys lead to cinema. When captured in its reverse, the cinematographic image
reveals an unreconciled character and, therefore, a didactic eagerness that teaches to see
everything all over again.

Cine (y) digital - Aproximaciones a posibles convergencias entre el cinematógrafo
y la computadora
Film (and) digital - Different approaches to possible convergence between cinematograph
and computer
Rethinking the idea of cinematographic language means reconsidering some aspects of cinema
history in its gradual combinations: from the original electromechanical and photochemical
machine to electronic and digital technologies. This leads us to a reflexion on certain myths,
which have marked the history of cinematography machines, and on an idea of staging drawing
from the filmmaking practices and experimentation that enable to envision an outlook on the
potential of digital film.

Glasgow 5/15
Letra Sur International Prize-winning novel in 2009. The Glasgow Coma Scale provides a score in
the range 3-15; patients with scores of 3-8 are usually said to be in a coma. In this novel, a young
woman whose sister is in a coma tries to puzzle out the accident that led her to that condition.
The story can be read in several levels, such as the mysteries of sisterhood, or the inadequacy of
words to describe reality filtered by personal perception, time and illness, in a city without a

What if a human being were a copy of another person? This novel inquires into the notion of

system that discriminates but that can also be the key to freedom. The author seizes comic-like
and B class cinema materials to recreate an Argentine Frankenstein and the myth of Cain and
Abel, destroying the banality of pop culture and imagining a universe where truculent does not
exclude emotional.

Revolución - Mayo 1810
Revolution - May 1810
The Argentine revolution in May 1810 gave birth to the country’s independence, but it has been
mystified many times. This essay summarizes the process that ended up on May 25 which
bicentennial anniversary Argentina is celebrating now. Above the many historical interpretations
which helped to tackle the subject, Revolución brings national heroes like Castelli, Belgrano and
Moreno to life, and it analyzes how local and foreign facts, such as Napoleonic occupation of
Spain or the frustrated attempt of English colonization, led to the first “patriotic government”.

Historia de los argentinos
History of the Argentineans
This book is a pioneering work considered a classic in its genre for its commitment to pluralistic
conception of historical evolution. The authors have avoided joining the ideological dichotomy
that stain classical studies in Argentina's history to overcome, as far as possible, a balanced and
objective account of the events over nearly five centuries. Without avoiding the necessary depth
of analysis, History of the Argentineans is characterized by a clear and concise approach that
allows both the non-specialist audience as the student or researcher looking to add a reference
and consulting text.

The wisdom of the I ching was expressed by men thousands of ago when the woman´s role was
limited to a handful of activities behind closed doors. Today it is possible to interpret the Book of
Changes from the modern woman´s point of view. This book was thought up in that sense,
stressing the female keeling and language: for the first time this ancient Oracle spears directly to
women. Its author, Gustavo Andres Rocco, with extensive experience in the study of the I Ching and who also has translated its full text directly from Chinese to Spanish- has achieved one of his
most successful work on the subject. Throughout the pages of this book, the reader is taken to a
journey into the female imaginary universe with freshness, which allows the reader to analyse and,
above all, to embrace the playful aspect of life, all of which makes The Female I Ching a tribute to
the goddess.
Author: GUSTAVO ANDRÉS ROCCO
Born in Buenos Aires, where he lives. He is graduated in Public Relations. He has
researched the internal communications of the individual and its myths, analysing
numerous ancient texts, including the I Ching to which he has devoted. He has
published several books, both in Europe and different countries of Latin America,
where he has attained recognition as an expert on the Book of Mutations; He also
tackled the study of Chinese language and translated full text of the I Ching into
Spanish. Rocco is also a novelist and, as an author, is currently venturing into theater.

pedagogy, psychoanalysis and sociohistorical psychology. Starting from the crossroads of these
early ideas, we weave one fabric into which other authors contribute some of their own words,

READING, WRITING AND EDUCATION
Every time we read and write we discover new features of a special world. We are reminded of
those from whom we learned to read and write, which in turn generates the excitement we feel
when teaching. But as teachers and professors, we know that teaching reading and writing is a
responsibility that is not easily carried out; it is a challenging task when our reality shows certain
common principles that are at stake with the influx of new generations to the writing culture.

LA INVESTIGACIÓN EN PSICOANÁLISIS
THE RESEARCH IN PSYCHOANALYSIS
Psychoanalysis is a method rather than a theory. And for Freud, it is not only a method used to
cure, but a research method as well. Freud defines Psychoanlysis as a rare yet successful
combination between a research method and the theories produced by its research.
Therefore, we begin with this key statement: Psychoanlysis is a research method, and from there
we can begin to develop its specificities.

This book explores the different views of psychosomatics in relation with studies of particular

and many other prevalent diseases. Some venture to say all diseases are psychosomatic and can
be caused by man’s suffering through confrontation of sociopolitical situations in his everyday
life. But as diseases can often be a result of lifestyle choices, we will discuss the manner of being
psychosomatic and a universal conception that unites the body and soul.

There are fears for all tastes and tales of shadows and frightening lights. Even the sun itself lives

Because fears get scared when you tell them of other fears, and they come out of the dark to

«"Nielsen narrates through the eyes of a criminal, a psychologist, a erotomaniac, an entomologist,
an artist, an architect –he is an architect–, and with the smell of a chemist who percibes the scent
and the bottom stench in human relations… " I wrote this lines for over a decade to celebrate
the appearance of the first collection of Nielsen' stories. It was a time of releases of fiction
authors, and Burnt Beach seemed a really work of an author, one who works with the truth of his
imagination and who, instead of fearing them, admires and cherishes his monstrosity and
intelligence to turn them into pieces of the best contemporary literature.» Fogwill

Historia de los intelectuales en América Latina
The cultural elites have been major actors in the history of Latin America. However, we did not have a history of the position of
men of ideas in the social space, their associations and forms of activity, institutions and fields of intellectual life.
Intellectual history in Latin America, the important work directed by Carlos Altamirano, comes to fill this empty space in the Latin
American studies.
The first volume addresses the specific history of Latin American intellectuals during the first four centuries from the colonial era
until the long passage that took place in the nineteenth centrury of literaty minorities to the new categories of intellectuals.
The second volume covers the twentieth century and deals with different themes: the ideas of revolution; the work of the exiles
intellectual networks; cultural magazines as a source to study the battles of thought in modern societies; politics understood as
the concern of intellectuals, the modern ideological movement indigenism, the literary publishing ventures and the academic
institutionalization of social science and literature or literary criticism.
History of intellectuals in Latin America open a field to indicate questions, give hypotheses that serve to future research, as well
as make a contribution to the understanding of our time.

Quilmes, where he heads the Intellectual History Program. He has

LA BESTIA EQUILÁTERA
Our publishing house gets its name from a novel that was started more than fifteen years ago. Who knows how
much longer will it take? Tired of waiting, in autumn of 2006, a group of fans embarrassed the writer by claiming,
“first publish, then write.” So they awaited the birth of the mysterious beast publishing books under that pet name
in order to keep our old illusion alive: there will always be a wonderful, yet undiscovered, yet untranslated, indeed,
yet unfinished, work.
El Carapalida
Paleface
The end of primary school as experienced with a Gothic undercurrent, the verbal intercourse of
parents and teachers, the fugitive babble of students’ dialogues, and a ghost, a splendidly vapid
ghost. These forces drive a poignant and vivid narrative, and the cunning realism of the mise en
scène — a cornucopia of childhood's toils and gadgets — conceals the novel’s cruel,
hallucinatory nostalgia. The year: 1971. In Argentina, the threshold to a harsh, abusive, dark
decade. A minor masterpiece. Something quite out of the ordinary.

Caravana
With uncommon powers of perception and captivating narrative skills, María Martoccia’s
Caravana shows that miracles needn’t be dramatic to have effects. Through distortions and
reflections, the three parts of the book —“In England”, “Out of England” and “Without Going
Any Farther”— offer different approaches to reality. In each one of the stories lies a solid
construction that envelops the event in question, lingering on seemingly superficial or irrelevant
concerns. The voice that stealthily narrates these paradoxical adventures is not cynical or
disillusioned but rather encouraging and unpredictable, unwilling to
forego intelligence even in absurd situations.

El Mono no come Bananas
The Monkey Eats No Bananas
A girl of five called Merceditas faces a true mystery: every evening a monkey enters her house,
but instead of taking the bananas Merceditas hides for him, he runs away with all the carrots he
can get hold of. This leads her to wonder, “philosophically”, if the world is really what it seems
to be.

Cuentos y relatos del norte argentino
Dávalos maybe the first writer in depict the deep Argentina, avoiding picturesque descriptions. A
sharp observer of the man in the countryside, he narrates the simple and resigned drama of their
lives without moralizing. His plain language breathes in the rhythm of his people, and his voice
resembles their voice. His tales, told through refined and simple words, are modern but not
stilted, and build a corpus which discloses his way of looking and staying in the world.

Author: JUAN CARLOS DÁVALOS
“I should say that I was born in La Montaña, San Lorenzo department, Salta city,
Salta province, on January 11th 1887.” “Nothing can explain better my passion
when trying to express the spiritual content of my province, than my genealogy
and the secular deep way this content is rooted in the families I belong to. My
great-grandfather, on my father’s side, was a criollo, son of Basque people, the last
Spanish governor in Salta. On my mother’s side, my ancestor is one sister of
General Don Martín Miguel de Güemes, who fought for independence. So, after my
first years, at the beginning of this century, I found myself surrounded by historic
remembrances and antagonism and family emulations.” “My grandfather Dávalos was a man with an austere
character and a high culture, born in Salta, who has studied in Charcas. I found at my father’s library some
writings, in his own hand. They were selected sayings of the world’s greatest thinkers, even encyclopedists. In
his impeccable handwriting, those copybooks contained notes, commentaries, aphorisms, personal opinions.”
En tierras de Magú Pelá
Aesthetics and revelations converge in this novel. Tales of adventure and initiation, the author
“discloses” to the reader an unknown, amazing and extraordinary region. But he does this
stubbornly avoiding any picturesque description: his simple and expressive prose unravels a
violent world where white men and natives struggle in the midst of a strange coexistence.
The wichis (old mataco people) are registered by the amazed and neat views of a youth who
becomes a man in a wild environment.

Author: FEDERICO GAUFFIN
“I was born in Metán, Salta province, in November 1887, in the time of the cholera;
I guess this is the explanation for my hopeless tendency to “montar el picazo” [get
angry]. Due to my parents’ poverty, I started my struggle since I was very young,
being taught by the wisest teachers: disgrace and experience.” “I was only 17 years
old when my first love affair cost my job, and I decided to travel to Chaco. My arrival
coincided with the exodus of settlers of Rivadavia, who 30 years earlier had
abandoned the bare plains of that department of Salta in order to go deep into the desserts of the north, by the
Pilcomayo River, where they established themselves on the left bank together with their cattle. I witnessed the
terrible slaughter of Indians in the hands of white people, and some of the serious combats, where the gauchos
boasted of their courage and cruelty.” “I took part in various expeditions to places where no white men have ever
been before, and in the suitcase of my memory I gather memories I pretend to revive through my stories”.

paying special attention to the design, layout, and paper quality.

Melodías Argentinas comes to us as a set of disharmonically beautiful musical scores.
Fragmentarily, with laughter as its twisting point, the different chapters accumulate around a
complex core of aesthetic concerns: what is literature? What for? Who reads? Who is read?
What are the expectations? Which permissions, which traditions, which transgressions are
settled there?

Teatro y Poder político en el Renacimiento Italiano
Theatre and Political Power During the Italian Renaissance
This work focuses on the relationship between theatre and power in Northern Italy, between
1480 and 1542. Ferrara, Mantua, Milano and Venice shape the notion of a theatre that is closely
related to a given political agenda. This book goes deep into the dramatic work of great authors,
such as Ludovico Ariosto, and Angelo Beolco, better known as “Il Ruzzante,” who laid the
foundations of what we ambiguously call the Italian Comedy.

La colonización de las almas / Misión y conquista en hispanoamérica
The colonization of souls / Mission and conquest in Spanish America
The evangelizing mission that was carried out during the Spanish conquest in America could be
considered as the simple religious legitimation of a military action or a means of protection to
native population from the pillage and brutality of the conquistadors. Paradoxically, both
opinions, in principle so diverging, with views from different angles, and under the lens of the
theologian, anthropologist, or historian, could combine in two affirmations that do not oppose
each other. All historical processes are complex and contradictory and as such, should be
analyzed from the moment and the place where they began to develop. The debate has gone on
for several centuries and perhaps will continue for many more, conforming to the distinct
conceptions of the world in which we live.

A girl is kidnapped but not by police or criminals, but by her own grandparents. With a distant

about her childhood. A child who is a fortunate heir. A child to whom everything is given.
Everything but love. The mother, “stoned but classy, lying on a canopy bed committing suicide
with certain regularity. The rituals of high society, observed by a very sharpen eye, produce to the
little girl as much …as a cream cake. Luckily not everything is fake.

In addition, it includes tests to find out what type of divorced women we are, what kind of men
we are attracted to when we turn single again, and break up behaviors based on testimonies from
cases treated in her practice. It constitutes a first aid manual to learn that a separation is not
necessarily a failure; on the contrary, it can become the beginning of a new and productive stage

Soy sola
On My Own
Loneliness is one of the most widely spread and less studied phenomena of the last century.
There are increasingly more widows and widowers, more single-parent families, more divorcees,
more people without a family. Strangely enough, with the increase of loneliness a phobia against
this condition also increases. Consequently, prejudice and fear emerge in those who are afraid of
it, hide it, and do anything to avoid it. This book does not try to qualify loneliness or analyze it
sociologically. It is the simple story of moments that show it every day to loners and mark the
difference with those who are accompanied.

Recovering the early stories that were transmitted from generation to generation, around a fire,
in the middle of a meadow, protected in a jungle, in a canoe, or in the warm and comfortable
environment of an igloo, yet surrounded by forty degrees below zero, is part of the great task of
grasping our own identity. The wise worldview of these people that vibrated in union with nature
shows us values that are worth rescuing. In “Legends, Myths Tales and Other Eskimo Stories”, we
become acquainted with a culture that rapidly adapted to a rigorous, frozen environment which
practically lacks vegetation. The culture of Eskimoes probably began no less than four thousand
years ago.

These Andean people , were assumed as “Children of the Sun”, and occupied a vast extension of
South America. They took full advantage of a wide variety of soils, by cultivating various
vegetables in the valley of Cuzco. In the lower lands, they planted coca, the sacred plant of the
Andes. They developed important irrigation systems that can still be observed.
The Inca culture was based on a strong worldview that reflected their interest for organization
and their sense of totality. In 1527, when the Spanish conquerors arrived, this great empire was
destroyed. This book includes legends, together with visual graphics, and excellent
illustrations on the Incas.

Nowadays Collas live in the northwestern provinces of Argentina: Salta, Catamarca and Jujuy, and
other neighboring countries. They descend from Diaguitas, Omaguacas and Apatamas, who have
in turn come together with Quechua and Aymara groups coming from Bolivia some time after.
In the present day, Collas, together with the Mapuches and Tobas from Chaco, constitute one of
the most numerous groups of Argentina. This book also includes the Calchaquíes or Diaguitas,
because although in their present location, specially in the province of Tucumán, they are
the heirs of the original ethnic group after whom they were named, they also represent one of
the many cultures in the Andes.

Clínica psicoanalítica con parejas -Entre la teoría y la intervención
Psychoanalytical Clinic with couples - Between the theory and the intervention
The reader will find in these pages a study about love from a psychoanalytic perspective, taking
as an empiric reference the medical practice with couples in a private office. But love and couple
are two realities of different order. While the first is in essence an emotional fact, ups and downs
of the spirit and the body; the latter instead, is an attempt to catch in a social scheme the
turbulence of the reality. This book is about the complicated bond between love and couples,
although the author proposes, “In many cases it does no more than show the divorce that
connects both phenomenons”.

Nowadays, consumption is directed towards the illusion of being a different person than who we

makes us see what we are and what we live. The author analyses how this illusion of not being

Historia Latinoamericana 1700-2005 - Sociedades, culturas, procesos políticos y económicos
Latin-american history 1700-2005 - Societies, cultures, political and economic processes
An approach to the information of a region as vast as Latin America requires an introduction to
its history, its culture, its primary root and its art. This book therefore narrates the Latin-American
events from the beginning of the 18th century to the 21st century. The history of each country
is described in relation to processes common to the region, the national organization in the 19th
century: their dependence on the leading financial countries, the oligarchic states, the dictatorial
and protectionist governments, the Mexican and Cuban revolutions, populism, the guerrilla
warfare, the dictatorial national security, the new peasant protests and present democracies

For North American voters, the triumph of the "first Afro American candidate" Barak Obama in
the 2008 elections, was a signal that the worst of racial discrimination had been left behind, and
ratified that the United States was "the land of the great promise". For the majority of the world
what it best showed was an extensive rejection to George W. Bush. As usual, everyone was
mistaken. The understanding of a crisis like this within the global context requires
comprehensiveness on fluctuations of the domestic and international policies applied by the
United States, which although turned into a financial leading nation, was unable to dominate
the world through its economic power, and used in its military force instead .

“The revealing power of photography becomes evident in each shot featured in this book.
A power that is not grandiloquence and that is summarised, at times, in the subtle shadow of a
rainbow in the haze or in the bleak profile of a boat. A professed lover of landscape, Florian von
der Fecht is a true connoisseur of the Argentine territory. There is more to his quest than a
virtuous camera bearing witness to skies, pampas and glaciers; there is also an attitude behind
the camera.” Sylvia Iparraguirre. www.florian.com.ar

mystery. Red soil roads and ruins of Jesuitic missions. Valleys with vineyards and throbbing
volcanoes. Crops, cattle, enormous estancias. Gauchos, Criollos, immigrants and country people.

together, forming familiar and whimsy shapes. This is the subject of this new book by Florian von

A group of Argentinean intellectuals shares a vision, to found a publishing house. It is a daring, timely idea and soon

America; on the other, to translate and distribute contemporary literature from abroad.
Since 2000, Sudamericana joined Random House Mondadori, a publishing division of Bertelsmann AG.

A courageous, learned, and determined woman, her Irish blood is put to the test more than once,
both in the large village that Buenos Aires still is at the time and in the brave pampas, where the
echo of the Indian raids still reverberates under the light of the great Calfucurá’s star.
The young teacher brings with her a whole new education, but is unaware that under the
Southern Cross there are other lessons she must learn, in a wild society where rules are written
with blood y love codes are quite different from her hometown’s, back in Massachusetts.

MERCEDES SOSA. LA NEGRA
"Mercedes Sosa. La Negra" is the ultimate edition of the only biography of Mercedes Sosa to be
written on the basis of her own words. When she was 67, Sosa decided to narrate her life. As she
was not interested in pretending to be a writer, her biography is a tale told out loud. This is how,
for a complex and atypical character, Rodolfo Braceli chose an unusual narrative way. On the one
hand, the fine singer’s words form the backbone of this work. On the other, we hear other
voices emerging—that of Sosa’s mother and brothers, that of his son and friends.

ÁRBOL DE FAMILIA - Novela
This novel is like a tree of intertwining stories, as well as a photo album opening windows to
other worlds. Each of these photos, each of these stories, has a value of their own, but at the
same time, is an indispensable leaf in the foliage.
The family is the great protagonist here. The two main sides, the father’s (the Galician “Terra pai”)
and the mother’s (the Castilian “Lengua madre”), mirror from different social backgrounds, and
even political inclinations, the fragmented account of the Spanish diaspora, the narrative of e
migration since the late 19th century, and also the exile following the Civil War tragedy.

LA SEGUNDA VIDA DE LAS FLORES
This is a novel about love and feelings, about how and why men and women look for, avoid, catch,
or leave each other throughout their lives. A picture that makes us ponder on the disease of not
living, the difficult love meanders, the tyranny of passion, and the irrational attraction for the
slippery and unstable. La segunda vida de las flores is not only that, however. It is also a
breathless thriller that immerses readers in an intrigue, taking them from one unexpected event
to the next until the mystery is solved.

HISTORIA DE UNA BIBLIOTECA - (De Platón a Nietzsche)
"Historia de una biblioteca" recalls a personal story and offers an irresistible prospect. The usual
answers become blurred, abolished by an unsystematic rigor that, instead of assigning value as
judged by a court, contrasts usages, passions, and textures. In few texts does the idea of book
become consolidated with that of library and culture as in Abraham’s. Within each of these
concepts, a unique and renewed substance allows us to trace the course of Western philosophy
and find its articulation joints in the least expected places.

reached that point, the succession is usually dealt with in a manner well known in the

exceptional and regular. Exceptional, because it happens to very few companies, and regular,

SIGLO XXI EDITORES
Siglo XXI is one of the few remaining prestigious independent Spanish-language publishing houses. Founded in 1966
in Mexico, it soon became the most important publisher in the social sciences.
Since it had a strong left-wing cultural and political orientation, its predominance suffered a major setback during
the 1990’s, and his director Carlos E. Díaz challenge at the outset was to respect SigloXXI’s editorial line, while
bearing in mind the world’s new political an cultural perspectives.
The company has grown in a remarkable way since its foundation in Argentina with many of their books becoming
highly acclaimed in their academic field. Siglo XXI is established as one of the most promising Argentinian
publishing houses.

environment of each period involved: the dreams of the so called “Generation of 1937”;
the beginning of democracy, hand in hand with “yrigoyenismo”; the irruption of Juan Domingo
Perón and the attitude of the intellectuals toward his leadership; the anxieties of the elite that,
due to an overwhelming European during the 60s and the 70s, ending with the violence and state
terrorism that came inmediately after.

Sexo, drogas y biología - Y un poco de rock & roll
Sex, Drugs and Biology - And a little taste of rock and roll
What comes to our mind when we talk about love and sex? Science? Not usually… But this
rigorous and entertaining book draws on science to explain what beauty is, where love is
located in our brains, and why we fall in love with one person and not with another.
In Sexo, drogas y biología…, the reader will discover that, for the numberless different creatures
on Earth, sex means numberless different adventures… because most of the sexy behaviours
require to show off. Because of sex, Nature offers an astonishing variety of colourful feathers,
splendorous flowers, gigantic horns, tattoos and poems. And, for the same price, we get a little
taste of rock and roll…

Sobre la violencia revolucionaria - Memorias y olvidos
About Revolutionary Violence - Memories and oblivions
This book speaks about revolutionary violence in Argentina in the 60s and 70s, and is based on
reports of its protagonists, on critics and self-criticism of ex combatants and militants, and
on discussions about this topic which took place in Argentina and in exile. The author asserts that
this “discourse” about Argentina’s recent past, even when it comes from the State or from human
rights organizations, recovers the reasons and myths of revolutionary militancy, and praises
the fights and their heroes, but eludes a much needed analysis of responsibilities, methods and
consequences. Vezzetti also mantains that this attitude serves only to create stereotypes and to
promote an idealized and self-indulgent version of facts.

THE JOB
El trabajo (The Job) is a remarkable novel that explores non-conventional modes of eroticism and
the complex relationship between society and art, and the daily exploitation of human beings.
Diana, a bankrupt woman, is subjected to sexual and otherwise harassment in order to be able
to work. She rebels against this and accepts the offer to become a stripper from a writer who has
been prosecuted for the alleged obscenity of his novel and who works at the cabaret across the
road from her office. She’s popular and they stage their own show which draws bigger audiences.
Eventually his past catches up with them and things and their dream of a better life and
personal freedom is finally shattered.

LEJOS DE DÓNDE
FAR FROM NOWHERE
January 1945, WW II is drawing to an end: A young woman manages to escape to Geneva
through occupied territories. Three years later, she starts a new life in Buenos Aires where she’s
haunted by a dark past, and only the innocent questions of her son Federico keep her from
leaving it all behind. When Federico becomes an adult, he will close the circle of that hidden life
with his own escape which will be an embarrassment for many surprising reasons.
Lejos de dónde is a story about Nazi crimes and the hiding of identities to avoid punishment. It
is told with great skill, weaving biographies and coincidences that are as categorical as fragile are,
for some, the boundaries between good and evil.

LA CULPA
REMORSE
César, a successful Argentine painter, goes to a coastal town in Brazil where eighteen years before
he had stayed with Lucía, a girl half his age. Upon their return to Buenos Aires, they had parted
and she had “disappeared” under the military dictatorship.
This is a trip of atonement for César who will seek through rites, charming characters and elusive
images, to be freed from the guilt that has plagued him since. He wants to cleanse away the
hatred and the rage. How can anyone live withholding words that should have been said, and
feeling collective cowardice as his own?
Dal Masetto writes a profoundly humane story, beautiful in its hardness and remembrance, about
remorse, justice and hope.

perfect gift for him, to tell him everything he means to us, to remember the story of our love and
to invite him to continue down that road together.
Written by a woman in love, the words of this book express the feelings of many women in love.
It doesn’t matter whether we’ve loved this special man for a short or a long time, whether
choosing him was in line with all our traditions, or whether the commitment that joins us is
simply loving each other above all else.
This is a gift that he will never forget.

Argentine Cuisine - Traditional and Creative
The recipes in this book follow a culinary journey through the Argentine geography, divided here
into five regions, each including a group of provinces with similar geographical characteristics and
culinary traditions. Each recipe is a celebration of a province; in some cases, it’s a typical dish of
Argentine cuisine, but other times, a typical ingredient is present in a modern recipe, inspired by
tradition but seen in a new, creative light.
This journey introduces us to the best of Argentine cuisine, through a careful selection of
delectable dishes, easy to prepare at home. A beautifully designed book, with excellent printing
quality and photos to illustrate the recipes step by step.
