Ideas About the Novel is a prophetic book that all writers must own.

Ideas About the Novel by Ortega y Gasset - my translation $0.99


Next to Cervantes, Benito Perez Galdos is the most beloved Spanish writer of all times.

Torquemada at the Stake by Perez Galdos- my translation $0.99

Lazarillo of Tormes - my translation $0.99
Read it in contemporary English -- No Thous, Thees, or King James' Bible language. Transliterated into easy language for enjoyable reading pleasure. Because The Lazarillo of Tormes pointed a new direction, European and American literature benefited with titles that today are considered classics: Cervantes’ Rinconete and Cortadillo; Daniel Defoe’s Moll Flanders, Henry Fielding’s Tom Jones and Joseph Andrews; Tobias Smollett’s Roderick Random, and Peregrine Pickle; Voltaire’s Candide; Charles Dickens’ David Copperfield. And many others to include American works ranging from Mark Twain to Saul Bellow.

Dehumanization of Art by Ortega y Gasset - my translation $0.99
The Dehumanization of Art— is now a constant in music, literature, aesthetics, and philosophy, having come to mean that in post-modern times human-shaped mimesis (representation of the human) is irrelevant to art. According to Ortega, the arts don't have to tell a human story; art should deal with its own forms—and not with the human form.

How writers open their sentences makes prose agile, interesting, and athletic. This e-book teaches how to break the pattern Subject-verb-object--and discard openings that begin with nouns, articles, and pronouns.

East of Tiffany's - bestseller $5
With the city as its backdrop "East of Tiffany's" is filled with earnest tales of love, loss, faith, success and morality. While business terminology is interwoven throughout these short stories, it's not business lessons that I take away with me, but life lessons. The circumstances and the characters' profound humanity are relatable despite their zip code . "Luke, Postmodern Man" offers a new vista into faith, suffering, and love of neighbor. Way after you read this book you'll find yourself thinking about the various characters throughout the series of stories and will find solace in their unwavering faith. The narrators' ability to reflect on their hardships with such serenity is inspiring.

See for yourself...

A friend in Need Realizing that my liberal arts and education degrees were not much in demand, I decided to take business courses —as a non-matriculated student— at the Columbia School of Business. I did well. All those years of reading Plato, Cervantes, Stendhal, Kant, Nietzsche, Sartre, Voltaire, Borges, Virginia Woolf, Melville, Hawthorne, and many others, had not blunted my appreciation of science; my mind was avid for math, statistics, and economics. I listed all the business courses in my resume and set off to look for that elusive high paying job. My enthusiasm waned and finally dissipated when after countless interviews, no one wanted to hire me. The excuse I always heard was that I did not have the credential that opens doors: an M.B.A. degree.


I have never believed in psychological depression, much less that I could be a sufferer of it. Within my mental chatter I would constantly affirm, “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not give up.” But I must admit that for a while I lived as if immersed in a dense fog. And at my ghastliest moment of weakness, that fog became darkness—absolute darkness, that I even struggled to see the tip of my nose, and I couldn’t.


Seized with panic I begged for mercy: “Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me: for I am desolate and afflicted.” (Psalm 25:16). In a moment of lucidity, I heard a voice commanding me to seek help. “You need kindness; you need a friend to nudge you out of your affliction. Mercy flows and is never denied.” “Life is worth living,” I said to myself. “All it takes is a good break. I will have to make my own break.”


The fog lifted. The darkness subsided and gradually everything was brightness.


A wave of optimism suffused me to the point of delusion. My brain had associated the word kindness with the name Luis Fernando. Armed with such optimistic attitude, and focused on making my own break, I called every name in my address book, inquiring if anybody knew the whereabouts of my college friend Luis Fernando, who to me was kindness personified. One voice —I don’t remember whose¬— at the other end of the telephone said, “He is a big shot at an investment bank here in NYC.” “Hosanna, Hosanna!” I cried. “Glory be to you, sweet Jesus.”
