Antonio's fascination with his new friend's life grows until the day Ricardo receives a mysterious, unmarked cassette. Shortly afterwards, he is shot dead on a street corner. Yammara's investigation into what happened leads back to the early 1960s, marijuana smuggling and a time before the cocaine trade trapped Colombia in a living nightmare.

PREMIO ALFAGUARA DE NOVELA 2016 En un pueblo perdido de la provincia de Buenos Aires muchas cosas están a punto de extinguirse. Durante la crisis económica que desembocó en el traumático corralito bancario de 2001, un grupo de hombres se propone reunir la suma de dinero necesaria para adquirir unos silos abandonados en un predio agroindustrial. Pero antes siquiera de llevar el proyecto a cabo, una estafa los hace tocar fondo y reaccionar ante la injusticia. Ahora se trata de robarle al mismísimo ladrón. Esta novela narra la historia de una merecida venganza colectiva llevada a cabo durante una noche legendaria que quedará en el recuerdo. Eduardo Sacheri crea en La noche de la usina un microcosmos narrativo poblado por un grupo de perdedores heroicos, protagonistas de una épica quijotesca, conmovedora y profundamente humana. Sobre el autor, la crítica ha dicho... «Sacheri logra como pocos darle una proyección universal a las historias que cuenta. Historias de gente común donde lo cotidiano se vuelve épico.» Juan José Campanella «El argentino Eduardo Sacheri hace de las historias cotidianas lecturas conmovedoras, de los lugares comunes situaciones universales.» Rocío Huerta, El País (España) «Es la presencia de Sacheri en los guiones lo que hace que las películas de Campanella tengan un importante toque de humor, un humor muy de Buenos Aires, rápido y algo negro.» Soledad Gallego-Díaz, El País (España) «La literatura de Eduardo Sacheri ya se instaló a través de la vida, la verdad o el fútbol, en un lugar que todos reconocemos y al que nos aferramos porque el mensaje final es que la derrota es sobre todo una señal que nos prepara para una próxima victoria.» Alejandro Apo «El registro coloquial es una marca tradicional que acompaña a este escritor al que no le caería mal el mote de costumbrista. Es que a Sacheri no le interesan tanto los héroes universales, sino las aventuras pedestres de los seres más mundanos, esos que uno se encuentra en los andenes cargados de cualquier estación del Sarmiento.» Revista Ñ, Clarín (Chile) «Eduardo Sacheri lleva cerca de 25.000 libros vendidos y se ha convertido en todo un éxito editorial al otro lado de la cordillera. Su pluma extrae una radiografía de la sociedad bonaerense a través de la pasión por el fútbol.» Vladimir Coppo G., La Nación (Chile) «Esa vida que transmite tiene la emoción de la vida en serio. No se nos ocurre que las lágrimas, las alegrías, las tristezas puedan ser ficción. Sacheri nos convence de que lo que el narra realmente ocurrió.» Tiempo perdido Desde su primera edición, en 1998, han presidido el Premio Alfaguara: Carlos Fuentes, Eduardo Mendoza, Alfredo Bryce Echenique, Antonio Muñoz Molina, Jorge Semprún, Luis Mateo Díez, José Saramago, José Manuel Caballero Bonald, Ángeles Mastretta, Mario Vargas Llosa, Sergio Ramírez, Luis Goytisolo, Manuel Vicent, Bernardo Atxaga, Rosa Montero, Manuel Rivas y Laura Restrepo. Alfaguara, sello que pertenece a Penguin Random House Grupo Editorial, fue fundada en 1964. Siempre ha tenido la vocación de apostar por la literatura en español y por América Latina, construyendo un camino de doble sentido para los libros publicados aambos lados del Atlántico. Hasta esta edición han obtenido el Premio Alfaguara de novela: Caracol Beach, de Eliseo Alberto, y Margarita, está linda la mar, de Sergio Ramírez (ex aequo); Son de mar, de Manuel Vicent; Últimas noticias del paraíso, de Clara Sánchez; La piel del cielo, de Elena Poniatowska; El vuelo de la reina, de Tomás Eloy Martínez; Diablo guardián, de Xavier Velasco; Delirio, de Laura Restrepo; El turno del escriba, de Graciela Montes y Ema Wolf; Abril rojo, de Santiago Roncagliolo; Mira si yo te querré, de Luis Leante; Chiquita, de Antonio Orlando Rodríguez; El viajero del siglo, de Andrés Neuman; El arte de la resurrección, de Hernán Rivera Letelier, El ruido de las cosas al caer, de Juan Gabriel Vásquez; Una misma noche, de Leopoldo Brizuela; La invención del amor, de José Ovejero, El mundo de afuera, de Jorge Franco y Contigo en la distancia, de Carla Guelfenbein. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION ALFAGUARA NOVEL PRIZE In a far-flung town in the province of Buenos Aires, many things are about to die out. During the economic crisis that led to the traumatic bank freeze of 2001, a group of men decides to gather the amount of money necessary to acquire some abandoned silos on an agro-industrial property. But even before they can carry out the project, a scam makes them hit rock bottom and react in the face of injustice. Now it’s about robbing the thief. This novel narrates the story of a well-deserved collective revenge carried out during a legendary night that will never be forgotten. In The Night of the Heroic Losers, Eduardo Sacheri creates a narrative microcosm inhabited by a group of heroic losers, protagonists of a quixotic epic tale that is at once moving and profoundly human. Since its first edition in 1998, the Alfaguara Prize has been chaired by Carlos Fuentes, Eduardo Mendoza, Alfredo Bryce Echenique, Antonio Muñoz Molina, Jorge Semprún, Luis Mateo Díez, José Saramago, José Manuel Caballero Bonald, Ángeles Mastretta, Mario Vargas Llosa, Sergio Ramírez, Luis Goytisolo, Manuel Vicent, Bernardo Atxaga, Rosa Montero, Manuel Rivas, and Laura Restrepo. Alfaguara, an imprint that belongs to Penguin Random House Grupo Editorial, was founded in 1964. It has always been called to bet on literature in Spanish and on Latin America, constructing a two-way street for books published on both sides of the Atlantic. To date, the Alfaguara Novel Prize has been awarded to: Caracol Beach, by Eliseo Alberto, and Margarita, está linda la mar, by Sergio Ramírez (ex aequo); Son de mar, by Manuel Vicent; Últimas noticias del paraíso, by Clara Sánchez; La piel del cielo, by Elena Poniatowska; El vuelo de la reina, by Tomás Eloy Martínez; Diablo guardián, by Xavier Velasco; Delirio, by Laura Restrepo; El turno del escriba, by Graciela Montes and Ema Wolf; Abril rojo, by Santiago Roncagliolo; Mira si yo te querré, by Luis Leante; Chiquita, by Antonio Orlando Rodríguez; El viajero del siglo, by Andrés Neuman; El arte de la resurrección, by Hernán Rivera Letelier, El ruido de las cosas al caer, by Juan Gabriel Vásquez; Una misma noche, by Leopoldo Brizuela; La invención del amor, by José Ovejero, El mundo de afuera, by Jorge Franco and Contigo en la distancia, by Carla Guelfenbein.

From New York Times bestselling author Isabel Allende, “a magical and sweeping” (Publishers Weekly, starred review) love story and multigenerational epic that stretches from San Francisco in the present-day to Poland and the United States during World War II. In 1939, as Poland falls under the shadow of the Nazis, young Alma Belasco’s parents send her away to live in safety with an aunt and uncle in their opulent mansion in San Francisco. There, as the rest of the world goes to war, she encounters Ichimei Fukuda, the quiet and gentle son of the family’s Japanese gardener. Unnoticed by those around them, a tender love affair begins to blossom. Following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, the two are cruelly pulled apart as Ichimei and his family—like thousands of other Japanese Americans—are declared enemies and forcibly relocated to internment camps run by the United States government. Throughout their lifetimes, Alma and Ichimei reunite again and again, but theirs is a love that they are forever forced to hide from the world. Decades later, Alma is nearing the end of her long and eventful life. Irina Bazili, a care worker struggling to come to terms with her own troubled past, meets the elderly woman and her grandson, Seth, at San Francisco’s charmingly eccentric Lark House nursing home. As Irina and Seth forge a friendship, they become intrigued by a series of mysterious gifts and letters sent to Alma, eventually learning about Ichimei and this extraordinary secret passion that has endured for nearly seventy years. Sweeping through time and spanning generations and continents, The Japanese Lover is written with the same keen understanding of her characters that Isabel Allende has been known for since her landmark first novel The House of the Spirits. The Japanese Lover is a moving tribute to the constancy of the human heart in a world of unceasing change.

In his acclaimed, award-winning novels Alex and Irène, Pierre Lemaitre created an unforgettable character in Police Commandant Camille Verhoeven. Now, in Camille, the final volume in Lemaitre's internationally bestselling trilogy of "meta-meta detective" novels (The New York Times), Verhoeven faces his most harrowing case yet, and the ultimate reckoning for the diminutive yet tenacious protagonist. Anne Forestier finds herself in the wrong place at the wrong time when she is trapped in the middle of a bank robbery. Shot three times, she is lucky to survive-and morbidly unlucky to remember the face of her assailant. Followed home from her hospital bed, Anne is in grave danger. But one thing stands in her favor-a dangerously vengeful partner, carrying the scars of devastating loss, who will break all the rules to protect the woman he loves: Commandant Camille Verhoeven. Following the horror of Irène and the thrills of Alex, Camille is the heart-stopping final chapter. Drawn once again into a labyrinthine web with answers ever out of reach, Camille must draw on all his talent to face an enemy who threatens everything he holds dear.

Instant New York Times Bestseller “Unimpeachably terrific.” —The New York Times Book Review One of CBS This Morning’s 6 “Must-Have Titles for Your Summer Reading List” The publishing phenomenon topping bestseller lists around the world, with sales of more than two million copies in Europe and rights sold in more than forty countries, The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair is a fast-paced, tightly plotted, cinematic literary thriller, and an ingenious book within a book, by a dazzling young writer. August 30, 1975: the day fifteen-year-old Nola Kellergan is glimpsed fleeing through the woods, never to be heard from again; the day Somerset, New Hampshire, lost its innocence. Thirty-three years later, Marcus Goldman, a successful young novelist, visits Somerset to see his mentor, Harry Quebert, one of the country’s most respected writers, and to find a cure for his writer’s block as his publisher’s deadline looms. But Marcus’s plans are violently upended when Harry is suddenly and sensationally implicated in the cold-case murder of Nola Kellergan—whom, he admits, he had an affair with. As the national media convicts Harry, Marcus launches his own investigation, following a trail of clues through his mentor’s books, the backwoods and isolated beaches of New Hampshire, and the hidden history of Somerset’s citizens and the man they hold most dear. To save Harry, his own writing career, and eventually even himself, Marcus must answer three questions, all of which are mysteriously connected: Who killed Nola Kellergan? What happened one misty morning in Somerset in the summer of 1975? And how do you write a book to save someone’s life? From the Trade Paperback edition.
