Una historia de amor para el siglo XXI. Una novela conmovedora sobre el poder imperecedero del primer amor con un final inolvidable. Él fue el primer hombre que la conmovió, que la inspiró, que la comprendió de verdad. ¿Estaba destinado a ser el último? Lucy y Gabe se conocieron durante su último año en la universidad un día que les cambiaría para siempre. En ese momento decidieron que necesitaban hallar un sentido para su vida, aprovecharla, dejar huella. Jóvenes y enamorados, parecían tener el mundo a sus pies. No esperaban que fueran sus propios sueños los que los separaran. Pero Gabe aceptó ir a trabajar como fotógrafo de prensa a Oriente Próximo y Lucy decidió continuar su carrera en Nueva York. Así comienzan trece años de anhelos, deseos, celos, traiciones y, sobre todo, amor. Separados por continentes, pero nunca lejos del corazón. ¿Era realmente su destino acabar juntos su viaje? Espero que algún día encuentres un amor así, un amor que todo lo consuma, un amor poderoso, que te haga sentir que te estás volviendo un poco loco... Pero además invencible e infinito.

¿Fue nuestro cuerpo diseñado para un mundo que ya no existe? Durante millones de años hemos habitado un planeta en el que la luz durante el día y la oscuridad durante la noche se alternaban de manera inmutable. Al principio el fuego y, mas adelante, artilugios de iluminación basados en la combustión de grasas, keroseno, o gas, fueron capaces de alterar mínimamente la oscuridad nocturna (se trataba de luz, como la lunar, de muy baja intensidad, y sin efectos biológicos). Sin embargo, desde hace alrededor de cien años, apenas ¡un milisegundo! en la historia de la humanidad, con generalización de las fuentes de luz eléctrica de alta intensidad, ¡hemos perdido la oscuridad natural de la noche! Hemos generado un nuevo contaminante ambiental. Hablamos ya de "polución luminosa". ¿Puede, la luz nocturna, tener algún efecto sobre nuestra salud? ¿Puede, por ejemplo, aumentar el riesgo de padecer cáncer, acelerar el envejecimiento, favorecer la obesidad o influir sobre el desarrollo de algunas patologías? ¿Por qué pensamos que puede ser así? Todos los seres vivos disponemos de un reloj biológico que, en nuestro caso, está situado en el cerebro. Es como un microprocesador que controla la ritmicidad de todas nuestras funciones fisiológicas, para adecuarlas anticipadamente a las necesidades previsibles para cada momento del día y de la noche. Este reloj siempre ha estado controlado por la luz solar, la única fuente natural de luz de alta intensidad. Sin embargo, ahora, con la luz artificial nocturna “confundimos” al reloj biológico, enviándole señales "anómalas" que lo desajustan, provocando algo que denominamos “cronodisrupción”. De esta manera, alteramos la programación de las funciones fisiológicas, con la posibles consecuencias anteriormente enumeradas. En este libro trataremos de estos asuntos, así como de los aspectos positivos (no todo es malo) de la luz artificial, relacionados con la salud.

"Lucy and Gabe meet as seniors at Columbia University on a day that changes both of their lives forever. Together, they decide they want their lives to mean something, to matter. When they meet again a year later, it seems fated--perhaps they'll find life's meaning in each other. But then Gabe becomes a photojournalist assigned to the Middle East and Lucy pursues a career in New York. What follows is a thirteen-year journey of dreams, desires, jealousies, betrayals, and, ultimately, of love. Was it fate that brought them together? Is it choice that has kept them away? Their journey takes Lucy and Gabe continents apart, but never out of each other's hearts."--

Ella se marchó, así empiezan las historias que merecen contarse Se marchó de la mano de la enfermedad dejando solo a un hombre pequeño, al que no le queda nada excepto vengarse de la vida que se la arrebató. O al menos, de los que la hicieron sufrir a ella. Pero ese hombre pequeño nunca se vengó de nadie, ni levantó la voz, ni mangó nada cuando era crío. Así que busca a quienes sí son capaces de hacerlo, a un extraño Papa que reina en un agujero de la ciudad llamado las Cien Puertas, con sus secuaces tatuados y llenos de pendientes de oro. También encontrará en ese camino a un extraño asesor, que le guía en todos los pasos de su contrato de venganza. Y como siempre en su vida, las cosas no salen bien. Ella empieza a aparecerse en sueños y él va perdiendo la cordura. Además, algo raro le ha sucedido al mundo, ha perdido la luz que tenía. Así que ese hombre pequeño tendrá que averiguar qué pasa en realidad, mientras intenta escapar de sus tratos con el diablo. * * * * * Tras un extenso recorrido por el relato, Isaac Belmar vuelve con esta novela, algo onírica y algo negra, que le ha valido el Accésit del Premio Oscar Wilde de novela breve.
