Amigos y amantes by Iris Murdoch

By Iris Murdoch

Una novela divertida y profunda a un tiempo, y con un elemento de suspense que explora con maestría los temas que desde siempre han preocupado a los angeles autora: el amor, l. a. amistad y los angeles perversa frontera que separa el bien y el mal.

El eco de un tiro en los despachos de Whitehall, el complejo administrativo que el gobierno inglés posee en el centro de Londres, no anuncia tan solo l. a. extraña muerte de un alto funcionario, sino también el principio de una sutil intriga.

Kate y Octavian, jefe del departamento donde trabajaba el difunto, forman un matrimonio aparentemente feliz que alberga en su casa de Dorset a un extravagante grupo de personajes: un excéntrico tío que abandonó l. a. India bajo sospecha, un atormentado amigo superviviente de Dachau, el abogado responsable del caso y amante platónico de Kate, hijos de distintos matrimonios, conocidos, visitantes ocasionales...

Y todos ellos relacionados de un modo u otro con el muerto en una deliciosa comedia de errores, donde las sonrisas esconden a menudo pecados de mucha hondura.

Reseña:
«Un originalísimo mundo novelístico de una interminable seducción.»

Christmas at Thompson Hall: And Other Christmas Stories (Penguin Christmas Classics)

Considered one of 5 liked Christmas classics
 
Christmas at Thompson corridor brings jointly the easiest of the Christmas tales of Anthony Trollope, some of the most winning, prolific, and revered English novelists of the 19th century.  Characterized through insightful, psychologically wealthy, and infrequently wryly funny depictions of the center category and gentry of Victorian England—and encouraged sometimes by way of missives within the “lost letter” field of the provincial put up place of work that Trollope ran—these stories helped to enshrine the traditions of the embellished Christmas tree, the vacation turkey, and the giving of store-bought presents.  Today, they open a window onto a time whilst carolers stuffed the streets and every house’s door displayed a wreath of evergreen boughs, a time at once distant and but startlingly common.

The ability to interpret the data from the study of mutant proteins in terms of a structural model depends in part upon the ability to recognize patterns within the data. The recognition of patterns in turn depends upon the ability to categorize the data in a simple, yet informative, manner. We have previously developed a scheme for categorizing equilibrium and kinetic folding data which allows us to analyze variant proteins (Beasty et al.
