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.

From the best-selling author of The Secret in Their Eyes, an adventure about friendship, soccer, and good humor When Alejandro “Mono” dies of cancer, his brother and two closest friends, a tight-knit group since childhood, are left to figure out how to take care of his young daughter, Guadalupe. They want to give her all the love they felt for Mono and secure her future, but there isn’t a single peso left in the bank. Mono invested all of his money in a promising soccer player whose talents haven't panned out, and the three hundred thousand dollars Mono spent on his transfer is soon to be lost for good. How do you sell a forward who can’t score a goal? How do you negotiate in a world whose rules you don’t know? How do you maintain relationships when repeated failures create fissures in lifelong loyalties? Fernando, Mauricio, and Ruso pool the few resources in their arsenal to come up with strategies—from harebrained to inspired—in their desperate attempt to recoup Mono’s investment for Guadalupe. Following the lives of four distinct characters, who, despite their great differences, still manage to find solace and pride in one another, Papers in the Wind is a tribute to friendship and proof that love and humor can triumph over sadness.

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.

Sink your teeth into Sienna Mercer’s first super-girly vampire story for girls. Olivia Abbott is a cheerleader - pretty clothes, pretty hair and pretty perfect. Ivy Vega is definitely not the cheerleading type - black clothes, black eyeliner, pale skin. In fact she seems the exact opposite of Olivia - or she would be if she wasn't her twin! Meeting for the first time since being separated at birth, Olivia is about to discover that her long lost sister may just have some skeletons in her closet. But that won't put her off getting to know Ivy. After all, blood is thicker than water - and it's certainly tastier! These kinds of situations only happen in My Sister the Vampire. A vampire book for girls who want to read about young love and innocent paranormal romance.
