Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade


Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade


"Let’s have a parade" is the phrase that begins a beloved American tradition, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. In 1924, employees of the R. H. Macy and Company store in Herald Square, many of whom were immigrants and first-generation Americans, chose to give thanks for their good fortune in a manner reminiscent of the festive parades held in their native countries. The excitement and praise from crowds lining the route that first year led Macy’s to issue an immediate proclamation: the parade would become a tradition. Before the parade’s first decade passed, Macy’s welcomed the huge and spectacular helium character balloons that became its goodwill ambassadors. Since then, the parade has become a world-famous treasure. Through rare and historic images, Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade offers readers a chance to reminisce, explore, and delight in eighty years of this thoroughly American celebration.

Beauty Salon

Salon


Like much of Mr. Bellatin''s work, Beauty Salon is pithy, allegorical and profoundly disturbing, with a plot that evokes The Plague by Camus or Blindness by José Saramago. – New York Times

Including a few details that may linger uncomfortably with the reader for a long time, this is contemporary naturalism as disturbing as it gets. – Booklist

A strange plague appears in a large city. Rejected by family and friends, some of the sick have nowhere to finish out their days until a hair stylist decides to offer refuge. He ends up converting his beauty shop, which he''s filled with tanks of exotic fish, into a sort of medieval hospice. As his guests continue to arrive and to die, his isolation becomes more and more complete in this dream-hazy parable by one of Mexico''s cutting-edge literary stars.

Mario Bellatin , the author of numerous short novels, was born in Mexico City in 1960. In 2000, Beauty Salon was nominated for the Médicis Prize for best novel translated into French. This is its first translation into English.
