All the Light We Cannot See: A Novel
Over two and a half years on the New York Times bestseller list and winner of the Pulitzer Prize, the stunningly beautiful and captivating story about a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France during World War II—now available from Encore!

Marie-Laure lives in Paris near the Museum of Natural History, where her father works. When she is twelve, the Nazis occupy Paris and father and daughter flee to the walled citadel of Saint-Malo, where Marie-Laure’s reclusive great uncle lives in a tall house by the sea. With them they carry what might be the museum’s most valuable and dangerous jewel.

In a mining town in Germany, Werner Pfennig, an orphan, grows up with his younger sister, enchanted by a crude radio they find that brings them news and stories from places they have never seen or imagined. Werner becomes an expert at building and fixing these crucial new instruments and is enlisted to use his talent to track down the resistance. Deftly interweaving the lives of Marie-Laure and Werner, Doerr illuminates the ways, against all odds, people try to be good to one another.

Doerr’s “stunning sense of physical detail and gorgeous metaphors” (San Francisco Chronicle) are dazzling. Ten years in the writing, a National Book Award finalist, All the Light We Cannot See is a magnificent, deeply moving novel from a writer “whose sentences never fail to thrill” (Los Angeles Times).

La luz que no puedes ver/All the Light We Cannot See (Spanish Edition)

Premio Pulitzer de Ficción 2015.

Un corazón puro puede brillar aun en la noche más oscura. Y en el más terrible de los tiempos.

Marie-Laure vive con su padre en París, cerca del Museo de Historia Natural, donde él trabaja como responsable de sus mil cerraduras. Cuando, siendo muy niña, Marie-Laure se queda ciega, su padre le construye una perfecta miniatura de su barrio para que pueda memorizarla gracias al tacto y encontrar el camino a casa. A sus doce años, los nazis ocupan París y padre e hija tienen que huir a la ciudad amurallada de Saint-Malo. Con ellos se llevan la que podría ser la más preciada y peligrosa joya del museo.

En una ciudad minera de Alemania, el joven huérfano Werner crece junto a su hermana pequeña, cautivado por una rudimentaria radio que ambos encuentran. Werner se convierte en un experto en construir y reparar estos aparatos cruciales para los nuevos tiempos, untalento que no pasa desapercibido a las Juventudes Hitlerianas.

Siguiendo al ejército alemán, Werner deberá atravesar el corazón en guerra de Europa. Hasta que en la última noche antes de la liberación de Saint-Malo los caminos de Werner y Marie-Laure por fin se crucen. Y sus vidas cambien para siempre.

Four Seasons in Rome: On Twins, Insomnia, and the Biggest Funeral in the History of the World
Anthony Doerr has received many awards -- from the New York Public Library, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the American Library Association. Then came the Rome Prize, one of the most prestigious awards from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and with it a stipend and a writing studio in Rome for a year. Doerr learned of the award the day he and his wife returned from the hospital with newborn twins.

Exquisitely observed, Four Seasons in Rome describes Doerr's varied adventures in one of the most enchanting cities in the world. He reads Pliny, Dante, and Keats -- the chroniclers of Rome who came before him -- and visits the piazzas, temples, and ancient cisterns they describe. He attends the vigil of a dying Pope John Paul II and takes his twins to the Pantheon in December to wait for snow to fall through the oculus. He and his family are embraced by the butchers, grocers, and bakers of the neighborhood, whose clamor of stories and idiosyncratic child-rearing advice is as compelling as the city itself.

This intimate and revelatory book is a celebration of Rome, a wondrous look at new parenthood, and a fascinating story of a writer's craft -- the process by which he transforms what he sees and experiences into sentences.

Un año en Roma / Four Seasons in Rome: On Twins, Insomnia, and the Biggest Funeral in the History of the World (Spanish Edition)

Un año en Roma es el hermoso y delicado relato autobiográfico del Premio Pulitzer Anthony Doerr sobre su experiencia viviendo en la Ciudad Eterna.

Una ciudad inagotable.
Una experiencia memorable.
Un paseo inolvidable.

El día en que nacieron sus dos hijos, Anthony Doerr supo también que había sido galardonado con el Premio Roma, una de las más prestigiosas distinciones otorgadas por la Academia Americana de las Artes y las Letras.

Gracias a su dotación, Doerr pudo vivir en la capital italiana con su recién acrecida familia durante un año. A lo largo de este tiempo, Doerr leyó a Plinio, a Dante, a Keats; visitó las calles y plazas más bellas del mundo, y asistió al mayor funeral de la historia, el del papa Juan Pablo II. Y todo ello mientras aprendía, entre biberones, pañales y noches en vela, los secretos de la paternidad.

Libro de memorias, por supuesto, pero también de viajes, de arte, y casi una novela, Un año en Roma es el fruto de las experiencias de su autor en la Ciudad Eterna, en las que lo íntimo y lo deslumbrante se funden por medio de la palabra.

Reseña:
«Un libro maravilloso: es divertido, incisivo, tierno y rebosante de sabiduría.»
Booksense

Wonder and Other Survival Skills
Is wonder really a survival skill? Between the urgency of the problems facing our planet and the chaos of our own busy lives, it might seem naive to place "cultivate wonder" at the top of a list of priorities. Yet that is exactly what the authors in this collection suggest: that wonder is necessary, that it might just be what saves us. Readers have long turned to Orion to be reminded of the things that really matter, to build their inner reserves, and to rekindle their sense of intimacy with the earth. The essays collected here are testaments to the power of beauty and the importance of humility-and a deep belief, even amid darkness and uncertainty, in wonder's essential role in our lives.
