Liquidación book cover
A Novel
Ling Ma - 2018-08-14
Calificación de Goodreads
En Liquidación la escritora estadounidense Ling Ma predijo, sin saberlo, una pandemia mundial. Candace Chen es la última oficinista en abandonar Nueva York tras el implacable avance de la Fiebre Shen, una infección mortal que viene de China y está diezmando poblaciones. Publicada en inglés en 2018, Liquidación es también una afilada crítica al capitalismo y sus consecuencias plagada de ironía. En esta novela, como en la realidad, la pandemia es la punta del iceberg de un sistema absurdo e insostenible. Tal vez sea el fin del mundo, pero no para Candace Chen. Al menos no hasta que cobre el dinero que le prometieron si sigue yendo a la oficina para suplir las bajas de sus colegas enfermos. ¿Cómo una infección de origen chino va a impedir que cumpla con su labor? Hasta que se da cuenta de que es la única habitante de Nueva York. Huérfana y sin casa a la que regresar, Candace abandona entonces su ciudad, mientras a su alrededor la Fiebre Shen es, definitivamente, más que una gripe y ha convertido a los contagiados en autómatas: hombres en traje envían correos de forma compulsiva, amas de casa preparan la mesa del comedor en un bucle infinito, dependientas doblan la ropa de la tienda en la que trabajan una y otra y otra vez. Hasta que mueren. Por suerte, Candace no es la única sobreviviente de la pandemia: están Bob y Janelle y Adam y Rachel y Genevieve y Ashley y Evan y Todd. Junto a ellos, se adentrará en el corazón del país y se verá obligada a decidir qué hacer con el secreto que guarda en su interior. Publicada en inglés en 2018, en Liquidación la escritora estadounidense Ling Ma construye una afilada crítica al capitalismo y sus consecuencias plagada de ironía. Y predice, sin saberlo, el primer contagio global del siglo XXI. Escrita con ligereza de lenguaje y ritmo, en esta novela, como en la realidad, la pandemia es la punta del iceberg de un sistema absurdo e insostenible.

Uncanny Valley book cover
Uncanny Valley
Anna Wiener - 2020-01-14
Calificación de Goodreads
This memoir offers a first-hand glimpse into the high-flying and reckless startup culture of Silicon Valley during a time of unchecked ambition, unregulated surveillance, wild fortune, and political power. The author, Anna Wiener, left a job in book publishing for the promise of the new digital economy in San Francisco. She landed at a big-data startup in the heart of the Silicon Valley bubble, where she witnessed a new Silicon Valley emerge; one that enriched itself at the expense of the idyllic future it claimed to be building. A coming-of-age-story and a portrait of a bygone era, Uncanny Valley is a rare and personal narrative that charts the tech industry's shift from world savior to democracy-endangering liability.

White Negroes book cover
White Negroes
When Cornrows Were in Vogue ... and Other Thoughts on Cultural Appropriation
Lauren Michele Jackson - 2019-11-12
Calificación de Goodreads
"White Negroes" by Lauren Michele Jackson is a thought-provoking exploration of cultural appropriation, and how it exacerbates racial inequality. The book discusses how the mainstream success of black aesthetics often leaves black pioneers behind, and how this is a blueprint for taking wealth and power. With a mix of narrative, scholarship, and critique, Jackson delves deep into the racial contradictions behind pop culture, political leaders, and more. This audacious debut brilliantly re-interrogates Norman Mailer's infamous 1957 essay of a similar name and introduces a bold new voice in Jackson. "White Negroes" is a must-read for those interested in thoughtful consumption and promoting equality.

The Mutations book cover
The Mutations
A Novel
Jorge Comensal - 2019-11-12 (publicado por primera vez en 2016)
Calificación de Goodreads
The Mutations is a deeply neurotic comedy that dissects the experience of illness and maps the relationships strengthened and frayed in its wake. Following the story of Ramón Martinez, a militant atheist and successful lawyer who loses the source of his power and livelihood - speech - after being diagnosed with cancer of the tongue, this book is a profound and funny cross section of modern Mexico. Filled with rough-hewn poetry of regret, rage, and, finally, resignation, The Mutations pays homage to forebears such as Sontag, Didion, Flaubert, and Tolstoy.
