SubSurdity: Vignettes From Jasper Lane (SubSurdity Series #1)

by Eric Arvin

SubSurdity: Book OneJasper Lane is a well-off neighborhood, not much different in appearance than most, with a tree-lined drive, manicured lawns, and crystal clear ponds. But underneath the pleasantry, a completely different world lurks. Cassie Bloom, the grand dame of Jasper Lane, has a missing son and husband and throws gay porn parties that are the social events of the year. Her best friend, a transsexual named Vera, owns a nightclub. Melinda Gold is the resident religious fanatic whose views clash with that of her son Patrick. Sandy and Steve Jones are the stereotypical all-American couple (except Steve acts in gay-for-pay porn unbeknownst to his pregnant wife). Rick Cooper just moved in, and despite his qualms about another relationship (having literally lost an eye in the previous one), he falls for ex-soldier, James. And David and Cliff are the most "normal" couple on the block... never mind that David helped Cassie with some past nefarious deed and that Cliff is the biggest gay porn star in the biz. Throw a dog named Gayhound and a dead body into the mix, and Jasper Lane may just be the gayest neighborhood in town!

La piel fría

by Albert Sánchez Piñol

Un fenómeno literario y la revelación de un autor «imparable de verdad» (Sergio Vila-Sanjuán, La Vanguardia). «Una novela fantástica, a medio camino de Conrad y Lovecraft [...]. Al mismo tiempo, fascina y da qué pensar.»Babelia A comienzos del siglo XX un prófugo de la resistencia irlandesa llega a una pequeña isla del Atlántico Sur para realizar mediciones meteorológicas durante un año. Allí solamente encontrará una cabaña y un faro habitado por un personaje intratable y hermético. Pero lo peor llega durante la noche, cuando los dos habitantes de la isla se ven asediados por extrañas criaturas procedentes del océano. Sometidos a una tensión extrema y conscientes de la titánica lucha que deben sostener para vencer la amenaza, descubren que convivir con lo desconocido es la única salida posible para sobrevivir. Ganadora de los premios Ojo Crítico y Llibreter de narrativa, La piel fría es una novela trepidante y claustrofóbica sobre el miedo y el deseo, que muestra una verdad perturbadora: el único monstruo invencible es aquel que produce la propia mente. * Ganador de los premios Ojo Crítico y Llibreter de narrativa.* Traducida a 37 lenguas.* Más de 800.000 ejemplares vendidos en todo el mundo. La crítica ha dicho:«Me persigue después de haberlo leído. Un libro espléndido.»Enrique Vila-Matas «Una soberbia novela [...] que defiende la literatura con mayúsculas: la que aún es capaz de atrapar al lector desde la primera línea.»Care Santos, El Cultural «Debo destacar La piel fría por su fría y al mismo tiempo sobrecogedora fantasía insólita.»Pere Gimferrer «Se ha dicho que una nueva generación de narradores está aterrizando en las letras catalanas, renovándolas con fuerza imparable [...]. Hoy por hoy el imparable de verdad es Sánchez Piñol.»Sergio Vila-Sanjuán, La Vanguardia «Un sueño febril con una lógica interna aun más convincente que la de los Cantos de Maldoror. Lo devoré.»Charlie Hebdo «Una obra absolutamente imprescindible de un escritor que se revela en el siglo XXI.»Carme Riera «Una especie de Robinson Crusoe visto a través de un cristal oscuro. Fascinante. Sorprende su impacto emocional.»Kirkus Reviews «El ritmo vertiginoso atrapa, y su historia, construida con gran habilidad, mantiene la intriga hasta el final.»Der Spiegel «Simplemente, un libro excelente.»Simon Baker, The Spectator «Es un relato trepidante y claustrofóbico sobre el miedo y el deseo.»MÍA «Una historia que nos trae ecos de Lovecraft, pero también de Conrad o Stevenson. Una historia que nos atrapa desde un primer momento y nos hace disfrutar de la lectura como cuando aún jóvenes, disfrutábamos con Verne, Cooper, London y tantos otros.»Ramón Clavijo, Diario de Jerez

The romance is breathtaking, and the action and suspense are intense. Nannette @ Joyfully Reviewed The authors' narrative is comfortable and flows smoothly, their plotting is tight, and their characters are well-developed and interesting...My only true disappointment in this book? That I've finished reading it. It was a little bit like a slice of birthday cake: beautiful to look at, satisfying to consume, and then mourned when it's gone. 5 of 5 stars Bobby @ Bookwenches The strong characters and narrative carry the story and the enjoyable action plot make this a fun, entertaining read with a good romance. The actions scenes are interesting and engaging with good writing and a dash of wit and humor thrown in to keep the story from being too dark and tense. 4.5 of 5 cherries Cactus @ Whipped Cream Reviews
