The Llama of Death: A Gunn Zoo Mystery (Gunn Zoo Series #3)

by Betty Webb Webb

Zookeeper Theodora "Teddy" Bentley takes Alejandro, the Gunn Zoo llama, to a Monterey Bay-area Renaissance Faire only to discover the still-warm body of the Reverend Victor Emerson, owner of the local wedding chapel, dressed in his royal robes as Henry the Eighth. At first it appears as if Alejandro stomped the man to death, but a closer look reveals a crossbow dart in the man's back. Teddy's investigation proves the "reverend" isn't really a reverend at all -- he's an escaped convict, and every marriage he's performed in the past twenty years is null and void. Teddy's mother Caro, a spoiled ex-beauty queen, becomes the chief suspect and is immediately jailed when she causes a riot in the courtroom. The "reverend" had twice married Caro to wealthy men, and when both marriages failed, Caro received large financial settlements. Now she may have to give all that money back, certainly a good enough reason to commit murder. But Caro wasn't the only person gunning for Victor. The child of the man Victor once murdered may have wanted to kill him, too, and at one point, even Teddy herself is handcuffed and jailed. Even worse, Teddy's embezzling father flies in from exile in Costa Rica to help spring Caro from jail, thus putting his own freedom in jeopardy. As Teddy continues her investigation, she finds herself up to her ears in girl gang members, squabbling boat liveaboarders, Renaissance Faire actors and stuntmen, and assorted animals. Written with a humorous touch, "The Llama of Death" portrays Renaissance Faire life, and gives the reader a rare behind-the-scenes look at modern zoos.

Lo incapturable

by Rubén Szuchmacher

En las artes escénicas -como en la vida misma-, los hechos, trascendentes o banales, pasan: apenas se producen son historia.A diferencia de otras artes, en las que los objetos permanecen prácticamente idénticos a sí mismos y perduran a pesar del paso del t iempo y del deterioro de su materialidad, las artes escénicas son incapturables.Este libro largamente esperado corre el telón y sube al escenario a todos y cada uno de los aspectos del hecho teatral: de las artes intervinientes (arquitectura, artes visuales, artes sonoras, literatura) al lugar del director, pasando por los interrogantes de una puesta y las tensiones entre arte y entretenimiento.Rubén Szuchmacher, uno de los directores argentinos más reconocidos en su país y en el mundo, pone en escena una obra única e indispensable: comprender e interpretar críticamente lo que se juega en una producción escénica.Tan sólido y reflexivo como provocador y polémico, invita a pensar las artes performáticas sin complacencia y, una vez más, como a lo largo de su carrera, despierta un prolongado aplauso.

Lo scudo magico (Stagione 1, Episodio 1)

by Simona Trapani Rose Berryl

Provate ad immaginare... Vi risvegliate una mattina nel Grande Mondo, alcuni anni dopo una terribile battaglia magica tra il giovane stregone Esklaroth e la regina delle Tenebre, Melena. Tutte le popolazioni si sono ritrovate in una situazione precaria, delle più disastrose. Molte città sono state distrutte e le terre devastate. Nonostante tutto, col passare del tempo, le società sono riuscite in qualche modo a riorganizzarsi, malridotte dalle impietose guerre, dai tradimenti e dalle epidemie, che avrebbero potuto, già da soli, sferrare un colpo fatale ai cinque regni. Questa storia comincia qui, a Belnigera, capitale di Lythuste, nel momento in cui il re Victor X convoca i suoi sudditi. Avvisati da una Divinità che una minaccia imminente si abbatterà sul Grande Mondo facendolo sprofondare nelle Tenebre, avranno poco tempo a disposizione per svelare i complotti demoniaci dei due nemici più temibili del Grande Mondo, per evitare che ogni traccia di vita scompaia in un rogo magico dei più spettacolari.

Lo tuyo es mío: Contra la economía colaborativa

by Tom Slee

El primer libro que demuestra que la llamada economía colaborativa -con empresas como Uber o Airbnb- tiene muy poco de colaborativa. Por qué no todo el mundo gana. La idea de economía colaborativa se nos ha contado como una forma alternativa a la economía convencional que no solo resulta más sostenible sino que además permite al individuo convertirse en un microemprendedor con mayor control de su vida. Pero esta nueva ola de empresas está en realidad financiada y dirigida por capitalistas de la más vieja escuela. Tom Slee muestra cómo la economía colaborativa extiende las más duras prácticas del libre mercado a áreas de nuestras vidas previamente protegidas, y ofrece la oportunidad a unas pocas personas de enriquecerse perjudicando a su comunidad y empujando a individuos vulnerables a asumir riesgos insostenibles. Basado en una brillante investigación original, repleta de datos y de ejemplos de los más concluyentes, Lotuyo es mío demuestra que tras un lenguaje amigable basado en las ideas de confianza y compartir, se oculta una realidad muy oscura. Reseñas:«En este libro tan lúcido como riguroso, Tom Slee desmantela la fachada de la economía colaborativa y revela las verdades ocultas e inquietantes sobre compañías como Uber y Airbnb. Si usted quiere entender cómo operan las empresas de Internet en realidad, Lo tuyo es mío es el lugar desde donde empezar.»Nicholas Carr, autor de Superficiales. ¿Qué está haciendo Internet con nuestras mentes? «Un libro magníficamente argumentado.»Steven Poole, The Guardian «Una crítica inteligente y punzante a un modelo de negocio sobre el que la gente apenas está empezando a reflexionar. Con gran acierto, Slee lo analiza como un modelo de negocio que se hace pasar por un movimiento.»Robert E. Levine, The Spectator «Slee, un tecnólogo moderado, ofrece un panorama bien investigado de las empresas cuyo valor de mercado ha crecido notablemente externalizando sus costes y burlando las leyes destinadas a proteger a los consumidores. Este libro es clarividente e importante.»Sue Gardner, ex directora ejecutiva de la Fundación Wikimedia

A Loaded Gun

by Jerome Charyn

"Remarkable insight . . . [a] unique meditation/investigation. . . . Jerome Charyn the unpredictable, elusive, and enigmatic is a natural match for Emily Dickinson, the quintessence of these." -Joyce Carol Oates, author of Wild Nights! and The Lost LandscapeWe think we know Emily Dickinson: the Belle of Amherst, virginal, reclusive, and possibly mad. But in A Loaded Gun, Jerome Charyn introduces us to a different Emily Dickinson: the fierce, brilliant, and sexually charged poet who wrote: My Life had stood-a Loaded Gun-...Though I than He- may longer liveHe longer must-than I-For I have but the power to kill,Without-the power to die-Through interviews with contemporary scholars, close readings of Dickinson's correspondence and handwritten manuscripts, and a suggestive, newly discovered photograph that is purported to show Dickinson with her lover, Charyn's literary sleuthing reveals the great poet in ways that have only been hinted at previously: as a woman who was deeply philosophical, intensely engaged with the world, attracted to members of both sexes, and able to write poetry that disturbs and delights us today.Jerome Charyn is the author of, most recently, Bitter Bronx: Thirteen Stories, I Am Abraham: A Novel of Lincoln and the Civil War, and The Secret Life of Emily Dickinson: A Novel. He lives in New York.
