Détails: “A free-wheeling vehicle . . . an unforgettable ride!”—The New York Times Cat’s Cradle is Kurt Vonnegut’s satirical commentary on modern man and his madness. An apocalyptic tale of this planet’s ultimate fate, it features a midget as the protagonist, a complete, original theology created by a calypso singer, and a vision of the future that is at once blackly fatalistic and hilariously funny. A book that left an indelible mark on an entire generation of readers, Cat’s Cradle is one of the twentieth century’s most important works—and Vonnegut at his very best. “[Vonnegut is] an unimitative and inimitable social satirist.”—Harper’s Magazine “Our finest black-humorist . . . We laugh in self-defense.”—Atlantic Monthly

God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater is Kurt Vonnegut’s funniest satire, an etched-in-acid portrayal of the greed, hypocrisy, and follies of the flesh we are all heir to. “A brilliantly funny satire on almost everything.”—Conrad Aiken “[Vonnegut was] our finest black humorist. . . . We laugh in self-defense.”—The Atlantic Monthly

Détails: Controversial painter Elaine Risley returns from Vancouver for a retrospective of her work. Here, in Toronto, the city of her youth, she confronts the submerged layers of her past – her unconventional family, her eccentric and brilliant brother, the self-righteous Mrs. Smeath, and the two men Elaine later came to love in diverse and sometimes disastrous ways. But it is the enigmatic Cordelia, once her tormentor, then her best friend, whose elusive yet powerful presence in her life Elaine finally comes to understand. The realm of childhood and growing up, with its secrecies, cruelties, betrayals, and terrors, has never been so brilliantly evoked. By turns disquieting, humorous, compassionate, haunting and mordant, Cat’s Eye is vintage Atwood.

Détails: Kurt Vonnegut's darkly comic work became a symbol for the counterculture of a generation. From his debut novel, Player Piano (1951) through seminal 1960's novels such as Cat's Cradle (1963) and Slaughterhouse-Five (1969) up to the recent success of A Man Without A Country (2005), Vonnegut's writing has remained commercially popular, offering a satirical yet optimistic outlook on modern life. Though many fellow writers admired Vonnegut - Gore Vidal famously suggesting that "Kurt was never dull" - the academic establishment has tended to retain a degree of scepticism concerning the validity of his work. This dynamic collection aims to re-evaluate Vonnegut's position as an integral part of the American post-war cannon of literature.

Détails: ULYSSES James Joyce's novel Ulysses is said to be one of the most important works in Modernist literature. It details Leopold Bloom's passage through Dublin on an ordinary day: June 16, 1904. Causing controversy, obscenity trials and heated debates, Ulysses is a pioneering work that brims with puns, parodies, allusions, stream-of-consciousness writing and clever structuring. Modern Library ranked it as number one on its list of the twentieth century's 100 greatest English-language novels and Martin Amis called it one of the greatest novels ever written. ULYSSES Ulysses is a modernist novel by Irish writer James Joyce. It is considered to be one of the most important works of modernist literature, and has been called "a demonstration and summation of the entire movement". Ulysses chronicles the peripatetic appointments and encounters of Leopold Bloom in Dublin in the course of an ordinary day, 16 June 1904. Ulysses is the Latinised name of Odysseus, the hero of Homer's epic poem Odyssey, and the novel establishes a series of parallels between its characters and events and those of the poem (the correspondence of Leopold Bloom to Odysseus, Molly Bloom to Penelope, and Stephen Dedalus to Telemachus). Joyce divided Ulysses into 18 chapters or "episodes". At first glance much of the book may appear unstructured and chaotic; Joyce once said that he had "put in so many enigmas and puzzles that it will keep the professors busy for centuries arguing over what I meant", which would earn the novel "immortality". James Joyce (1882-1941) was an Irish novelist and poet, considered to be one of the most influential writers in the modernist avant-garde of the early 20th century. Joyce is best known for Ulysses, the short-story collection Dubliners, and the novels A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and Finnegans Wake. ULYSSES As the day begins, Stephen Dedalus is displeased with his friend and remains aloof. A little later, he teaches history at Garrett Deasy’s boys’ school. ULYSSES Leopold Bloom begins his day by preparing breakfast for his wife, Molly Bloom. He serves it to her in bed along with the mail. ULYSSES As their day unfolds, Joyce paints for us a picture of not only what’s happening outside but also what’s happening inside their minds. ULYSSES Drawing on the characters, motifs and symbols of Homer’s Odyssey, James Joyce’s Ulysses is a remarkable modernist novel. It has lived through various criticisms and controversies and has undergone several theatre, film and television adaptations. It continues to remain a literary masterpiece. ULYSSES

Détails: In the midst of spiraling ecological devastation, multispecies feminist theorist Donna J. Haraway offers provocative new ways to reconfigure our relations to the earth and all its inhabitants. She eschews referring to our current epoch as the Anthropocene, preferring to conceptualize it as what she calls the Chthulucene, as it more aptly and fully describes our epoch as one in which the human and nonhuman are inextricably linked in tentacular practices. The Chthulucene, Haraway explains, requires sym-poiesis, or making-with, rather than auto-poiesis, or self-making. Learning to stay with the trouble of living and dying together on a damaged earth will prove more conducive to the kind of thinking that would provide the means to building more livable futures. Theoretically and methodologically driven by the signifier SF—string figures, science fact, science fiction, speculative feminism, speculative fabulation, so far—Staying with the Trouble further cements Haraway's reputation as one of the most daring and original thinkers of our time.

Détails: Cinco grandes compañías eléctricas poseen la mayor parte de la capacidad instalada y de la energía producida en España, a la vez que controlan la totalidad de las redes de distribución y venden la mayor parte de la electricidad a los clientes finales. Forman un oligopolio que domina tanto el mercado mayorista como el minorista de energía eléctrica. De modo que el funcionamiento del sistema eléctrico constituye un negocio de colosales dimensiones, que proporciona grandes beneficios a esas grandes compañías, está garantizado por los poderes públicos y lo financian los consumidores. Consecuentemente, esa posición de poder es un factor determinante para calibrar las posibilidades y los límites del curso que pueda seguir la transición eléctrico-energética. Alrededor de la transformación del sistema eléctrico entran en juego cuestiones vitales para toda la sociedad, en las que se dilucida cómo garantizar el suministro de un producto fundamental, cómo evitar los precios abusivos y cómo contribuir a un drástico descenso de la emisión de gases de efecto invernadero. Este trabajo pretende aportar una reflexión sobre lo que ha venido ocurriendo en el sistema eléctrico, como condición imprescindible para explicar sus características actuales y para afrontar el debate sobre qué transición, con qué prioridades y con qué actores cabe llevar a cabo la transformación del sistema. Después de un capítulo introductorio en el que se plantean las premisas básicas del análisis, el libro se estructura en dos partes que abordan la posición de poder del oligopolio eléctrico desde perspectivas complementarias. Una lo hace a través del dominio que ejercen en las diferentes tecnologías con las que se genera la electricidad. La otra lo hace a través del dominio que ejercen en los sucesivos segmentos (producción, distribución, comercialización) y los mercados (mayorista y minorista) que componen el sistema eléctrico. Por último, el capítulo final presenta un conjunto de consideraciones y propuestas acerca de la estrategia a seguir para transformar el sistema eléctrico. Las características que adopte la transición eléctrica dependerán fundamentalmente del acierto con que se fije y se aplique esa estrategia de transformación, guiada por objetivos económicos, sociales y ecológicos. Lo cual inevitablemente tendrá que ir acompañado de la solvencia con la que los poderes públicos (parlamento, gobierno, reguladores del mercado, garantes de la competencia) entablen una negociación “disputada” con las grandes compañías para que prevalezcan los intereses democráticos de la mayoría de la sociedad. Por consiguiente, el contenido del libro está orientado hacia un público interesado en conocer las características del sistema eléctrico, como condición imprescindible para valorar la envergadura de los desafíos pendientes y para participar en el debate sobre la transición eléctrica, energética y ecológica.
