Description


La lucha por los derechos de las mujeres ha tomado el mundo por asalto, pero por que muchas de sus simpatizantes caen en tantas contradicciones? Por que parece haber tantas malas feministas? Roxane Gay, profesora universitaria, colaboradora de The New York Times, ensayista y novelista con mas de un millon de visitas en su charla TED sobre feminismo, tiene algunas respuestas a esas preguntas. La pluma de Gay, filosa como una catana, explora la cultura pop para extraer verdades incomodas acerca de como somos representados en el cine, la television y la literatura. Con un estilo a veces acido y corrosivo, otras intimo y personal, pero siempre potente y critico, Roxane atraviesa el entretenimiento masivo: desde Cincuenta sombras de Grey hasta Los juegos del hambre; sin olvidar a Quentin Tarantino y Orange is The New Black, para rescatar valiosas lecciones e incomodas verdades sobre la discriminacion, el privilegio y la frustracion de querer un mundo mas justo. Sus ensayos no exigen la credencial de feminista para ser leidos. Son una invitacion abierta a analizar el entorno en el que estamos inmersos bajo la promesa de que, despues de leerlos, creeras firmemente que, como dice la propia Roxane, tenemos el derecho al mismo respeto. Es incompatible querer ser independiente y a la vez ansiar que cuiden de ti, que te gusta la musica reggaeton pero te revuelva por dentro lo machista de algunas de sus letras?

From the publisher:

"In this richly imaginative debut novel, the first running of the Kentucky Derby serves as the backdrop for a story of what might have been had Abraham Lincoln survived his assassination and lived to retire with Mary to Springfield.  Derby historian Ross R. Moore provides an accurate account of the origins of the famous race, while creating a detailed and entirely plausible world through which the Lincoln's journey to Louisville to meet old friends and to face another deadly threat.  Part horse racing saga, part travelogue, part historical fantasy, part suspense thriller, chock full of sly bits of "stealth history" befitting its educator author, and peopled with memorable characters both real and imaginary, the result is an entertaining and engaging yarn and rewarding read."

Ross R. Moore is an educator, storyteller, and singer-songwriter living in San Diego.  A native of Kentucky where he attended Murray State University and the University of Louisville, he was for several years a museum educator at the Kentucky Derby Museum, sharing the history of the race with visitors. Now he brings this story to a wider audience, drawing upon his knowledge of Derby lore to form the backdrop of this, his first novel.
