Desde Cualquier Punto de Vista Desde Cualquier Punto de Vista es una mirada audaz a Santiago de Chile. Con una prosa rpida, un constante cambio de narrador y una irreverencia que no se le conoca en textos anteriores, Biggs aborda los problemas de la vida cotidiana en una historia que pudo ser la suya. El relato central, es el de un ejecutivo exitoso (Carlos Sims) que estando en la cima de su carrera, enfrenta un sorpresivo despido, con todo lo que ello implica: prdida del automvil de la empresa, del chofer y de mil prebendas que crea que seran para siempre. El tema no es menor, cuando va acompaado del relato de personajes como el junior de la oficina, (Pablo Carreo), quien junto a su amigo Sebastin (con una ambigedad sexual el primero y una abierta homosexualidad el segundo), organizan una Brigada de Asalto cuyo financiamiento en una primera etapa est a cargo de una fbrica de condones que ellos mismos han montado. Personajes como la madre de Sebastin (Mara Elena Lillo) antigua combatiente del VOP, de la secretaria (Melinda) que es capaz de cualquier cosa con tal de no fallarle a su jefe, o del sub gerente (Claudio Valds Fonk) quien con un clculo cnico y sin frontera aspira al cargo mximo, se armonizan en forma sinfnica con la suegra del protagonista, que es vctima del terrible mal de Alzheimer, y de su esposa, una mujer de clase quien, desde su soledad pasiva, ve transformarse su entorno sin tener recursos ni respuestas para enfrentar el derrumbe del mundo en que creci. La novela transcurre con una velocidad abismante con una serie de otros personajes tan reales como los que construye Biggs los que van relatando una historia lineal y transversal a la vez, desde su personal punto de vista. Desde Cualquier Punto de Vista (From Any Point of View) is an audacious look at Santiago de Chile. With fast prose, a constant change of narrator and with an irreverence that we didnt see in his previous books, Biggs faces the problems of everyday life in a story that could be your own. The central plot involves a very successful executive (Carlos Sims) who, at the peak of his career, is unexpectedly fired, hence, facing all the lossesthe company car, the chauffer, and thousands of other perks he thought would last forever. This theme is knit with the story of a sexually ambiguous junior executive (Pablo Carreo) and his homosexual friend Sebastin, who together decide to organize a Brigade of Assault, financed by a condom factory. The story is filled with rich characters like Sebastins mother (Mara Elena Lillo), a former V.O.P. Militant (an armed leftist group in Chile during the sixties); Melinda, the secretary who is ready to do anything for her boss; or the assistant manager, (Claudio Valds Fonk) whos trying to claw his way to the top of the Company with a lack of scruples and a cynical attitude. Woven into this rich tapestry is Carlos mother-in-law, a victim of Alzheimers; his wife, a woman with class who, from her passive loneliness, sees her world fall apart without having means or answers to face the destruction of the world she grew up in. Biggs has created a novel of breathless speed with a series of other characters that tell the story in a lineal and transversal way, from their own point of view.

Painting a vivid, personal portrait of social and political upheaval in Oaxaca, Mexico, this unique memoir employs comics, bilingual essays, photos, and sketches to chronicle the events that unfolded around a teachers' strike and led to a seven-month siege. When award-winning cartoonist Peter Kuper and his wife and daughter moved to the beautiful, 15th-century colonial town of Oaxaca in 2006, they planned to spend a quiet year or two enjoying a different culture and taking a break from the U.S. political climate under the Bush administration. What they hadn't counted on was landing in the epicenter of Mexico's biggest political struggle in recent years. Timely and compelling, this extraordinary firsthand account presents a distinct artistic vision of Oaxacan life, from explorations of the beauty of the environment to graphic portrayals of the fight between strikers and government troops that left more than 20 people dead, including American journalist Brad Will.

El hombre require guia en su busqueda de Dios. El universe provee al hombre de tal guia en forma visual. Todo el universe parece estar haciendo sefias al hombre para que Is acompane en su inexorable progreso hacia el Senor. Tan deslumbrante es la radiaci6n del eel que parece querer dar en mensaje al ser humane, pero no puede hacerlo antes de ponerse. Los arboles extienden sus ramas. Los rios fluyen con su movimiento pulsante. Todas estas cosas y muchas mas tienen algo que decir, pero el ser humane pasa per su lade sin darse cuenta que es ese algo. Todas las alturas celestiales y panoramas terrestres parecen unirse en una masiva pero silenciosa congregaci6n, que se dirige al ser humane visual pero nunca audiblemente. ,Pero es el universe realmente nada mas que un vasto muses de obras de arte inarticuladas? Para nada. Todo en el carga us mensaje divine, comunicado en el idioma de la eternidad. Sin embargo, tan inmerso esta el ser humane en sus asuntos mundanos que falla en sir este mensaje silencioso. El Profeta debe desempenar el papel de poner este mensaje divine en palabras que podamos entender. El demuestra el tips de vida que Dios espera que el ser humans y toda la creacian sigan.
