Los amores en los cuentos de hadas siempre acaban en boda; al menos en los cuentos que no quieren complicarse demasiado. Éste no es el caso de los angeles historia del señor Fox, un afamado escritor que no puede evitar matar a todas las protagonistas de sus novelas, incluida su esposa Daphne. Pero un día Mary, su musa, se hace actual y transforma al autor en un personaje literario, con lo que l. a. vida del señor Fox da un giro sorprendente. Mary le desafía para que se una a ella en sus ficciones, y así, a través del tiempo y el espacio, se buscan y se persiguen. Sus aventuras vuelven del revés el cuento de hadas tradicional, rompiendo las convenciones sobre los géneros literarios. El lector deberá suspender su incredulidad y dejarse llevar por l. a. voz narradora para descubrir una historia de amor inusual y mágica que rezuma sentido del humor y encanto hasta el final.

Oliver Sacks,José Manuel Álvarez Flórez's El hombre que confundió a su mujer con un sombrero PDF

By Oliver Sacks,José Manuel Álvarez Flórez

ISBN-10: 843397338X

ISBN-13: 9788433973382

El hombre que confundió a su mujer con un sombrero se convirtió inmediatamente en un clásico y consagró a Oliver Sacks como «uno de los grandes escritores clínicos del siglo» (The long island Times), como atestiguaron más tarde Un antropólogo en Marte y otros singularísimos textos.

En este libro, Oliver Sacks narra veinte historiales médicos de pacientes perdidos en el mundo extraño y aparentemente irremediable de las enfermedades neurológicas. Se trata de casos de individuos, aquejados por inauditas aberraciones de los angeles percepción que han perdido los angeles memoria, y con ella, l. a. mayor parte de su pasado; que son incapaces de reconocer a sus familiares o los objetos cotidianos; que han sido descartados como retrasados mentales y que, sin embargo, poseen insólitos dones artísticos o científicos. Por extraños que parezcan estos casos, el medical professional Sacks los relata con pasión humana y gran talento literario. Son estudios que nos permiten acceder al universo de los enfermos nerviosos y comprender su situación frente a las adversidades. Como gran médico, Oliver Sacks nunca pierde de vista el cometido ultimate de l. a. medicina: «el sujeto humano que sufre y lucha».

Il suffit de parcourir los angeles presse anglaise. Rares sont les jours où on ne reste pas pantois à l. a. lecture d'un fait divers ou d'un compte-rendu dont le surréalisme serait tout à fait hilarant s'il ne reflétait los angeles dérive de toute une société dans tous les domaines. Ce livre, en forme de "sottisier" constitué à partir d'articles de journaux, offre donc un landscape de "la folie ordinaire" des Anglais dont le comportement, décidément, ne cesse de nous étonner. Quelques exemples : Une monarchie dont les héritiers mettent au element l'adultère par téléphone. Une Eglise dont certains prêtres avouent qu'ils ne croient pas en Dieu. Un gouvernement qui prône le retour aux valeurs victoriennes tandis qu'on surprend secrétaires d'Etat pantalons aux chevilles, et députés en porte-jarretelles. Et gare ! l. a. pieuvre aux multiples tentacules qu'est "le politically right" veille ; cognizance : ne plus fêter Noël ou Pâques serait une insulte aux adeptes des autre religions, ou si vous êtes un homme, proposer à une femme d'aller au cinéma serait un viol mental... !
