Apoyada en fuentes, investigaciones, testimonios de las víctimas y entrevistas, la escritora examina la transformación de un país a través de las vidas de las personas que dirigieron el comercio de la droga desde principios del siglo xx hasta el día de hoy. La protagonista parece ser una multitud: los grandes capos, los policías, los políticos corruptos, los empresarios que lavan dinero, los periodistas amenazados, las mujeres asesinadas, las madres de los desaparecidos, la población asustada e incapaz de habituarse al terror. Pero no: la verdadera protagonista de esta historia contada como una novela es la escritura literaria de Lolita Bosch, poética e incisiva, que ha construido durante ocho años esta aproximación humana a la mafi a, la guerra y la paz. Campos de amapola antes de esto es, sin duda, uno de los relatos mejor escritos sobre la historia de la violencia en México y advierte sobre lo que no queremos pensar: esto podría suceder en casi cualquier otro lugar del mundo, casi en cualquier otro momento.

Augatora is a word lost from language. In Old High German it meant, more or less, eye gate (window with an inbuilt etymology). The windows in this book open on real and imagined land and cityscapes. Memory, science, language, history, and love remain Bhatt's themes. Places featured in the poems include Durban, Riga, New Orleans, Amsterdam, Jerusalem, Barcelona, and the small island of Juist off the German North Sea coast, setting of the long poem, The Hole in the Wind, which has been broadcast by BBC Radio Drama.

"A mesmeric combination of vivid, keen, obsessive precision and raw, urgent energy.Â?? --Zoe Williams, Guardian "Thrilling and harrowing . . . Unsurpassed and unsurpassable.Â?? --Sunday Times James Rhodes's passion for music has been his lifeline--the thread that has held through a life encompassing abuse and turmoil. But whether listening to Rachmaninov on a loop as a traumatized teenager or discovering a Bach adagio while in a hospital ward, he survived his demons by encounters with musical miracles. These--along with a chance encounter with a stranger--inspired him to become the renowned concert pianist he is today. Instrumental is a memoir like no other: unapologetically candid, boldly outspoken, and surprisingly funny--shot through with a mordant wit, even in its darkest moments. A feature film adaptation of Rhodes's incredible story is now in development from Monumental Pictures and BBC Films, following a competitive bidding war involving major U.S. and U.K. companies. An impassioned tribute to the therapeutic powers of music, Instrumental also weaves in fascinating facts about how classical music actually works and about the extraordinary lives of some of the great composers. It explains why and how music has the potential to transform all of our lives.
