Ramón Boldú, pionero del cómic autobiográfico en España, ha decidido hablar de la guerra civil, la vida en el geriátrico, la muerte... Pero, a pesar de lo trascendental de todos esos temas, es incapaz de ponerse trascendente del todo, como es habitual en él, aunque lo intenta. Boldú, una vez al mes, va al geriátrico a visitar a su padre. Suelen matar el tiempo jugando al ajedrez, mientras éste le explica historias de la guerra civil española, que vivió en propia carne, de cara a conseguir material para su próximo cómic. El único familiar vivo que le queda a Boldú es su padre, por lo que es imposible que pueda contrastar la realidad de la alucinante información que éste le trasmite y se reproduce en este cómic. Al mismo tiempo, Boldú, harto de que le siga ganando al ajedrez y al enterarse de lo que, parece ser, sucede en las guerras, y harto también de las injusticias generalizadas que hay en el mundo, decide inventar un ajedrez con reglas más humanas y que incite a la humanidad a amarse, más que a matarse. El nuevo ajedrez se llama el “tango libre” y se incluye en el tomo.
Noah expected to spend Christmas alone, but he never expected to spend it falling in love with his boss. With his third divorce looming and his bank accounts frozen, Chip Harington was surprisingly okay with spending Christmas alone, even if he was living out of a suitcase in his office. He had already decided to skip the office Christmas party, until some surprising words from one of his employees makes him change his mind. Noah always expected the crush for his boss to fade, but after two years working under Chip, his feelings are stronger than ever.
With Chip’s personal life in tatters once more, Noah never expected his boss to show his face at the office Christmas party, so he was even more surprised when his drunken attempt to kiss Chip turned into so much more. Chip assumed his encounter with Noah was nothing more than a one-night stand, but when his employee emerges from a snowstorm on Christmas Eve, they are forced to spend Christmas together in a London office block. With the lines between employer and employee blurred, will either man emerge from the snow the same, or will their Christmas encounter change the course of their lives forever, making them wish they had spent Christmas alone after all? *** Genre: Christmas, Gay Romance, MM Romance, Christmas novella.

It didn t take long for Barack Obama to make his mark as the biggest political star to ever occupy the White House. Over the course of his two terms in office, Obama has injected the American presidency deeper into popular culture than any of his predecessors. He and his wife Michelle have become iconic figures, celebrities of the first order.This book, by award-winning White House correspondent and presidential historian Kenneth T.
Walsh, discusses how the Obamas reached this point. More important, it takes a detailed and comprehensive look at the history of America s presidents as celebrities in chief since the beginning of the Republic. Walsh makes the point that modern presidents need to be celebrities and build on their fame in order to propel their agendas and rally public support for themselves as national leaders so that they can get things done.Combining incisive historical analysis with a journalist s eye for detail, this book looks back to such presidents as George Washington and Abraham Lincoln as the forerunners of contemporary celebrity presidents. It examines modern presidents including Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, Ronald Reagan, John F. Kennedy, Franklin Roosevelt, and Theodore Roosevelt, each of whom qualified as a celebrity in his own time and place. The book also looks at presidents who fell short in their star appeal, such as George W.
Bush, George H. W. Bush, Richard Nixon, and Lyndon Johnson, and explains why their star power was lacking.Among the special features of the book are detailed profiles of the presidents and how they measured up or failed as celebrities; an historical analysis of America s popular culture and how presidents have played a part in it, from sports and television to movies and the news media; the role of first ladies; and a portfolio of fascinating photos illustrating the intersection of the presidency with popular culture."
