Aguliar returns home after a four-day business trip to discover that his beloved wife has gone mad. Desperate to rescue Agustina from her sudden, devastating insanity, Aguliar delves back into her shadowy past. Other narratives are intertwined with his frantic search for the truth; that of Midas, a flamboyant drug-trafficker and Agustina's former lover, and Agustina's splintered memories of her own troubled childhood. The key to her madness lies buried deep in a Colombian story of money, power and corruption.

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.

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.

Amos Oz's first major novel in a decade - since A Tale of Love and Darkness, which sold over 100,000 copies Selected as a Book of the Year 2016 in the Times Literary Supplement Shmuel, a young, idealistic student, is drawn to a mysterious handwritten note on a campus noticeboard. This takes him to a strange house, where an elderly invalid man requires a paid companion, to argue with and read to him. But there is someone else in the house, too... A woman, who is trailed by ghosts from her past. Shmuel is captivated by her, a sexual obsession which evolves into gentle love and devotion; and he is pulled to the old man, an intellectual obsession which also evolves into gentle love and devotion. Shmuel begins to uncover the house’s tangled history and, in doing so, reaches an understanding that harks back not only to the beginning of the Jewish-Arab conflict, but also the beginning of Jerusalem itself – to Christianity, to Judaism, to Judas. Set in the still-divided Jerusalem of 1959–60, Judas is an exquisite love story and coming-of-age tale, and a radical rethinking of the concept of treason. It is a novel steeped in desire and curiosity from one of Israel's greatest living writers.

Winner of the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize 2011 Red April evokes Holy Week during a cruel, bloody, and terrifying time in Peru's history, shocking for its corrosive mix of assassination, bribery, intrigue, torture, and enforced disappearance - a war between grim, ideologically driven terrorism and morally bankrupt government counterinsurgence. Mother-haunted, wife-abandoned, literature-loving, quietly eccentric Felix Chacaltana Saldivar is a hapless, by-the-book, unambitious prosecutor living in Lima. Until now he has lived a life in which nothing exceptionally good or bad has ever happened to him. But, inexplicably, he has been put in charge of a bizarre and horrible murder investigation. As it unfolds by propulsive twists and turns - full of paradoxes and surprises - Saldivar is compelled to confront what happens to a man and society when death becomes the only certainty. Remarkable for its self-assured and nimble clarity of style, Red April is at once riveting and profound.
