As an additional component to our reading list for 2024, we began a strange literary experiment last month: sharing with you what the Xataka editors are reading. Anything you may think of, from essays to fantasies to intimate dramas, we can cover it. Be sure to take note of this information because we will be back next month with a new carrycot in April 2024.

Catholicism explained to the sheep’ by Juan Eslava Galán has been a deeply pertinent book for me to hold during Holy Week, even though it was not anticipated. Although I was captivated from the very beginning, I am well aware that not everyone will find this essay enjoyable because of its theme, tone, and approach.

This introduction has piqued my interest enough to warrant further reading of Eslava Galán’s works, particularly the instructive ones; I had never read any of his work before. Provocative, irreverent, and characterized by well-cooked irony, “Catholicism explained to the sheep” is an article that does precisely what its title says: it is a critical analysis of Christianity.

What I appreciate most about the work is its piercing point, regardless of whether the book is well-documented and structured, which it is in my humble opinion. I haven’t come across a novel with such a brazen and self-aware tone and an ironic foundation in a long time. Its enjoyable reading quality is the main reason for its appreciation. Why? Because that’s what happens: a delightful, and occasionally hilarious, book. This is particularly helpful when delving into a complex subject like a critical examination of Christianity’s history and creed. Carlos Prego,

Will Lee suffered a heart attack on December 7, 1982. The loss of Lee, who had been a fan favorite for almost a decade, shocked the whole Sesame Street crew. The screenwriters were at a loss for months until it hit them: it was time to say goodbye to him, along with the performers and the young viewers. Episode 1839, airing a year later, was when the show’s grownups broke the news to Big Bird that Mr. Hooper had passed away. Even in 1983, when I was a kid, it didn’t exist in my parents’ minds; I didn’t see it until much later in life. The painting scene, nevertheless, is undeniably one of the most poignant moments ever presented by television.

That’s why I can’t stop thinking about effective methods to broach the subject of loss with kids. I won’t, however, act as though a TV show from forty years ago is the reason I’m here today to suggest this book. Because being the first person to purchase a book is an incredibly rare occurrence, I’ve come to discuss “The Dance of Eternity” with you. This is particularly true if you are not acquainted with the writer or have any connection to the publishing house.

But as fate would have it, I happened to walk in at the same moment that Jesus Quirosa started signing copies for everyone who had bought them during the pre-sale. The book’s lovely message about “loss and friendship, about loneliness, memory and love”—and the fact that the book’s coincidences add up—proves, as stated in the last pages, that “children’s literature is a very serious thing.” Francisco Jimenez

Like the icy Norwegian plains where it all takes place, it’s dark, bitter, and tough. Two sisters, a cramped hut, and mental and physical suffocation. As a result of the interplay between reliance and disease, it explores the power dynamics within families.

As you delve deeper into the story, you’ll find that the love-hate dynamic between the sisters is intricate and complex, casting doubt on the veracity of the events unfolding and the veracity of the characters’ claims about their mental health. Skips around from sanity to lunacy. The introduction of a third party further complicates matters. The story compels you to keep searching for that beacon of light in the midst of all the darkness, even though you don’t ultimately identify with either sister.

The key to a bleak and lonely story is the straightforward and dry narrative approach. What could be better than a book that straddles the genres of mystery and gothic fiction, always manipulating your imagination?… López, Eva This is without a doubt one of the most captivating and tragic pieces of writing I’ve come across recently. A careful and extremely well-documented study on the effects of cobalt mining on the people of the Democratic Republic of the Congo—the title gives it away.

This African nation is the source of at least 75% of the world’s cobalt, a chemical element that is essential to the functioning of the worldwide technological industry. Most people who buy technology from other countries don’t realize that human rights are often violated throughout the process of extracting this chemical element. The believability required by a subject as delicate as this is demonstrated by Siddharth Kara as he lifts the curtain in front of our eyes. Well worth the recommendation. The Lopez family

When asked about the “violent” nature of power, Giuliano da Empoli told the Financial Times that it doesn’t necessarily take physical form. When it comes to this, Da Empoli is an expert. During Renzi’s brief tenure as prime minister of Italy, he served as an advisor and got a front-row seat to the political action in the continent. Additionally, Moscow’s, a city that is once again, like many others throughout the continent’s history, shrouded in mystery and despair in the view of the West.

Russia after the Iron Curtain fell is the setting of Da Empoli’s debut novel. Assisted by a plumber and adviser to the Kremlin, he examines Vladimir Putin’s ascent to power. The novel’s focus on recollections and recompositions helps him shed light on Russia’s zeitgeist—the unique drives, interests, and cultural norms that shape the country’s politics and society—in a way that Europe has failed to do before. Russia is both a part of and a continent within Europe. A subtlety that Da Empoli attempts to catch a peek of through his fictional characters (except Putin).

A swan song about purposeful lethargy and the importance of taking it easy. They both document in their writings the process of bringing a more relaxed and leisurely pace to their lives. Without getting overly preoccupied with scheduling every minute of our day, they gather methods like continuous prioritization, the single-task approach, and the usage of time blocks to divide up our work and personal lives. Additionally, they provide a fascinating perspective on the importance of pursuing one’s ideals to the point where they dictate one’s behavior in any endeavor. José Lacorte

Mexican author Fernanda Melchor’s second novel, which analyzed a Mexico that does not love women (and very few males), was widely acclaimed and won several important international honors. “Hurricane Season” is a contrastive tale that is both portrayed and told in a torrential fashion. Melchior’s empathy is fundamental to the story, which tells the story of how The Witch was murdered in the imaginary town of La Matosa.

about the people they portray. ‘Hurricane Season’ is both violent and nuanced, delicate and wild, measured and explosive; it is narrated in the third person and draws inspiration from both ‘In Cold Blood‘ and ‘The Autumn of the Patriarch.’ The narration is sparse, without full stops, and it recreates vernacular language. You go into it thinking it will be a mere style exercise; you emerge from it as if nothing out of the ordinary had transpired. Attorney Roberto P. J.

This book, which is really about 100 pages long, was the unanimous recommendation of my girl when I asked for a light read to bridge two volumes that I thought would keep me occupied for quite a while. This in no way suggests that it is a cuisine that will appeal to every taste, as the name suggests. No doubt about it, though; it ranks high among the most unexpected and influential novels I’ve read recently.

Gabrielle Wittkop was a French writer who was an avid reader (it’s no secret that she devoured Sade in her parents’ library when she was a little girl; it shows) and whose work has numerous obvious allusions, such as, of course, to Sade and Poe. remnants of the more sinister Baudelaire or Lautréamont, who wrote “The Songs of Maldoror.”

In this bizarre and disgusting tale, Wittkop tells the tale of a necrophilic antiquities trader and his heinous quests to acquire human remains for his fetish. ‘The Necrophile’ is more than just an extreme and provocative work; it is also absurd, emotional, and immoral, and it is brimming with a sick humor when he relates the most sexual and practical aspects of his life. It also oozes with an indescribable poetry that gives its protagonist a human quality. I mean, anything that can simultaneously captivate and threaten is plausible.–660e5595a8806#goto5801!-avis-cout-cote-divoire-by-artenorme-gelule
