"Los hombres son como los perfumes. En un instante, sin más juicio que mi ágil olfato, o me enamoro de ellos o los echo a un lado". Marisol es una exuberante poeta y archivista de historia que vive en el Miami contemporáneo. Al igual que su ciudad adoptiva, ella es un espíritu libre y sensual. Nacida en Cuba y transplantada a una temprana edad en la Florida, lleva dentro una nostalgia por la legendaria isla en que nació y que apenas recuerda. Su pasión por los olores la inspira a adoptar un perfume diferente cada vez que se embarca en una nueva relación amorosa. Tras la muerte de su querida abuela y una sucesión de malogrados romances sensuales, Marisol concluye que debe liberarse de las ataduras de su historia, abandonar causas perdidas y refugiarse en el único santuario que siempre va con ella: su propio corazón errante. Liberada al fin de su añoranza por la vieja Habana, "el París del Caribe", su romántico exilio está llamado a emprender una nueva vida. Privada de reclamar La Habana como suya, opta por su verdadero destino: París. Y es así que Marisol se lanza a desbrozar el camino hacia su futuro. Salvando la distancia entre el Miami efervescente de hoy y la mística Cuba de ayer, Siempre París es un canto a la geografía y la memoria, una obra repleta de humor, pasión y personajes inolvidables.

"Men are like perfumes. In an instant, with nothing but a whiff of judgment, I either love them or discard them." Marisol is an exuberant poet and historical archivist living in contemporary Miami. Like her adopted city, she's a sensual free spirit. Born in Cuba and transplanted at an early age to Florida, she nurses a nostalgia for the legendary island birthplace she barely remembers. She also harbors a passion for scents, donning a new perfume each time she takes on a new relationship. After the death of her beloved grandmother and a series of sensuous but disappointing romances, Marisol realizes that she must break free from the shackles of her history, abandon lost causes, and embrace the only real home she's ever had -- her own wandering heart. Freed at last from yearning for old Havana, "the Paris of the Caribbean," this romantic exile must embrace a new life. Although she cannot reclaim Havana, she can experience the real thing -- Paris -- so Marisol sets out with an open ticket to chart the course of her future. Bridging the divide between the effervescent Miami of today and the mystical Cuba of yesteryear, Reclaiming Paris is a paean to place and memory, rich with humor, passion, and unforgettable characters.

The Girl You Left Behind is a hauntingly romantic and utterly irresistible new weepy from Jojo Moyes, author of the Richard and Judy bestseller, Me Before You. What happened to the girl you left behind? In 1916 French artist Edouard Lefevre leaves his wife Sophie to fight at the Front. When her town falls into German hands, his portrait of Sophie stirs the heart of the local Kommandant and causes her to risk everything - her family, reputation and life - in the hope of seeing her true love one last time. Nearly a century later and Sophie's portrait is given to Liv by her young husband shortly before his sudden death. Its beauty speaks of their short life together, but when the painting's dark and passion-torn history is revealed, Liv discovers that the first spark of love she has felt since she lost him is threatened... In The Girl You Left Behind two young women, separated by a century, are united in their determination to fight for the thing they love most - whatever the cost. If you can't wait for The Girl You Left Behind treat yourself to the prequel, Honeymoon in Paris, Jojo Moyes' irresistible ebook-only novella out now.

Moyes does a majestic job of conjuring a cast of characters who are charismatic, credible and utterly compelling' Independent on Sunday 'This truly beautiful story made us laugh, smile and sob like a baby' Closer

Albert Memmi's classic work stands as one of the most powerful and psychologically penetrating studies of colonial oppression ever written. Dissecting the minds of both the oppressor and the oppressed, Memmi reveals truths about the colonial situation and struggle that are as relevant today as they were five decades ago.Nobel Laureate Nadine Gordimer's new critical Introduction draws Memmi into the 21st century by reflecting on his achievements and highlighting his omissions. In doing so she opens new avenues of enquiry for scholars and students, and exposes new directions for activists seeking a more just world order in our neo-colonial age.With the fires of war, terrorism and protest burning around the globe, never has Memmi's work been such relevant and necessary reading.
