Benjamin Franklin's Humor

Although he called himself merely a "printer" in his will, Benjamin Franklin could have also called himself a diplomat, a doctor, an electrician, a frontier general, an inventor, a journalist, a legislator, a librarian, a magistrate, a postmaster, a promoter, a publisher -- and a humorist. John Adams wrote of Franklin, "He had wit at will. He had humor that when he pleased was pleasant and delightful... [and] talents for irony, allegory, and fable, that he could adapt with great skill, to the promotion of moral and political truth." In Benjamin Franklin's Humor, author Paul M. Zall shows how one of America's founding fathers used humor to further both personal and national interests. Early i...

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER The ultimate guide to animal flatulence: the perfect gift for anyone who has ever farted. Dogs do it. Millipedes do it. Dinosaurs did it. You do it: I do it. Octopuses don't (and nor do octopi). Spiders might do it: more research is needed. Birds don't do it, but they could if they wanted to. Herrings do it to communicate with each other. At the beginning of 2017, an innocent question on twitter about snakes formed the hashtag #doesitfart and spread pungently across the internet - and major newspapers - as dozens of experts weighed in on which animals do and don't fart, and if they do, how much, how often, what it's made of, what it smells like, and what it's for. Does it Fart? is the result: the fully authoritative, fully illustrated guide to animal flatulence, covering the habits of 80 animals in more detail than you ever knew you needed. What foods make hyena farts smell especially bad? What is a fossa, and does it fart? Why do clams vomit but not fart? What is a fart, anyway? With contributions from dozens of biologists, Does it Fart? is a book that will allow you to shift the blame onto all kinds of unlikely animals for years to come.

The best-selling author of BRINGING UP BÉBÉ investigates life in her forties, and wonders whether her mind will ever catch up with her face. When Pamela Druckerman turns 40, waiters start calling her "Madame," and she detects a new message in mens' gazes: I would sleep with her, but only if doing so required no effort whatsoever. Yet forty isn't even technically middle-aged anymore. And there are upsides: After a lifetime of being clueless, Druckerman can finally grasp the subtext of conversations, maintain (somewhat) healthy relationships and spot narcissists before they ruin her life. What are the modern forties? What do we know once we reach them? What makes someone a "grown-up" anyway?...

El Gíbaro

El Gíbaro, magnífica obra pionera en la literatura de Puerto Rico, ha sido comparada por algunos estudiosos con el Poema de Mío Cid de España y el Martín Fierro de Argentina. Esta obra en prosa y verso presenta estampas de las costumbres del campesino del País, incluido el modo de vestir, la música y la vida diaria. Utilizando al jíbaro como modelo, Alonso intenta describir aquellas características que definen la identidad puertorriqueña. En estos relatos, Alonso también recrea la lengua campesina isleña: el vocabulario, la pronunciación, la sintaxis, etc. Esta obra fue aclamada de forma casi inmediata por críticos y lectores como la primera muestra del costumbrismo antillano, iniciadora de una literatura propiamente puertorriqueña, capaz de presentar numerosos rasgos autóctonos que, sin renegar de sus claras influencias españolas ni de ciertos aspectos compartidos con el costumbrismo de otras regiones hispanoamericanas, permitían ya hablar de una literatura puertorriqueña propiamente dicha.
