    EL CONFINADO

    by ROBERTO DOMINGUEZ MORO

    Juan, a thirty-year-old computer scientist, lives with anguish the first week of the lockdown in Madrid. Before all businesses close, he stocks up on food and become increasingly worried about the situation. In his case, an isolation in solitude, with his own relationship sinking down, his family away and nobody in the entire building he lives in, apart from a neighbor, his dog ... and a couple of tourists with symptoms of being infected. Social networks, collective applauses and the casual encounters with Julia, his neighbor, will not ease his anxiety. On the contrary: the reinforcement of the lockdown measures, the “news intoxication” and the cough he hears through the wall will lead him to a paranoia of unpredictable consequences. An intense and entertaining psychological thriller. An urgent, primary book, a revealing fiction in the midst of a crisis that no one saw coming.

    EL IMPRESOR DE VENECIA

    by JAVIER AZPEITIA

    In 1530, young Paolo Manuzio visits his widowed mother in a villa in the Modena countryside to show her a draft of a biography of Aldo Manuzio, his father and the most important printer of all time. He doesn’t know how radically the truth of his father’s life differs from the chronicle he hopesto write. From the time Aldo Manuzio arrived in Venice in 1489, with his plan of manufacturing exquisite editions of the treasures of Greek literature, he faced unexpected difficulties, from the theft of manuscripts to the commercial restrictions imposed by the owner of the print shop (theinfluential Andrea Torresani, who would later become his father-in-law) or the censorship of the powerful against the diffusion of epicureanism that Aldo’s young wife and collaborator, Maria, sought out with passion. With just the right dose of irony mixed with hidden erudition, with characters and details from the golden age of the pioneers of book printing, The Printer From Venice recreates the birth of the book business in a dazzling manner, in the midst of a city struck with madness –better suited to love affairs than to intellectuals– and a time of crisis and change in the very concept of the book, in which the challenges faced by publishers today are recognizable.
