Aromatic, refreshing, delicious and a feast for the eyes, the generously-sized and creatively garnished "gin tonica" Spanish-style drink is taking the cocktail world by storm. Spaniards love their gin and tonics. In Spain, the bartender doesnâ€™t ask you what you want to drink, he asks you how you want your gin and tonic prepared. This simplest of drinksâ€”just gin, tonic, ice and a garnishâ€”is now considered the national drink of Spain. The trend started in the north of Spain, in Basque country, where you can walk into a bar and upon ordering you are presented with a cart teeming with gin and tonic options to create your very own bespoke drink. A beautiful cocktail with a variety of herb and flower garnishes, a Spanish-style gin and tonic or "gin tonica", is made with a premium gin and the best quality tonic water, combined with bitters and various herbs, spices, flowers, and fruits that will complement the botanicals of a specific gin. It is served over ice in an oversized balloon glassâ€”the idea being that the shape enables the drinker to enjoy all the lovely aromas their drink gives off. For a cocktail with only two ingredients, the flavor potential is staggering! Making a gin tonica is an intricate process, sometimes taking a barman as long as 15 minutes to deliver the ideal drink. The ice has to be dense so that it melts slowly, the glass might be spritzed with a fine layer of citrus oil, chilled to perfection, with the tonic poured in delicately. No detail is ignored, the wait is part of the experience, and the result is absolutely delicious. Attention to detail and respect for the classic is what truly elevates the Spanish gin tonica above all others. With more gin brands and styles of tonic available than ever before, and 40 inspired recipes here to try at home, there has never been a better time to discover the joy of the gin tonicaâ€”saludos!

Evidence-based Interventional Pain Practice
Author: Jan Van Zundert, Jacob Patijn, Craig Hartrick, Arno Lataster, Frank Huygen, Nagy Mekhail, Maarten van Kleef
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
Unrelieved chronic pain is a worldwide epidemic Chronic pain has been subject to multiple international initiatives through the World Health Organization. Interventional Pain Medicine, use of minimally invasive techniques to relieve pain, is the best approach when simpler measures such as physical therapy or medications fail. However, these procedures can be associated with significant risk and expense. Establishing uniformity in diagnostic criteria and procedural performance can reduce both morbidity and unnecessary procedures, and hence healthcare expenditures. While other texts explain how to perform these procedures, little focus has been given to diagnostic considerations: if and when these procedures should be performed. Evidence-based Interventional Pain Practice uniquely focuses on how the establishment of an accurate and specific diagnosis relates to the effectiveness of the interventions. It provides the evidence for the use of interventional pain techniques across all areas of chronic pain including: • Head, neck and shoulder pain • Spinal pain • Pain in the joints and extremities • Complex Regional Pain Syndrome • Phantom pain Evidence-based Interventional Pain Practice provides essential knowledge for anyone who uses, or intends to use, interventional pain techniques.
The Sky Over Lima
Author: Juan Gómez Bárcena
Based on a historic literary hoax, this “charming” novel is “a love letter to the creative process” from one of Spain’s most original authors (Kirkus Reviews). José Gálvez and Carlos Rodríguez are poets. Or, at least, they’d like to be. Sons of Lima’s elite in the early twentieth century, they scribble poorly constructed verses and read the greats: Rilke, Rimbaud, and, above all others, Juan Ramón Jímenez, the Spanish Maestro. Desperate for Jímenez’s latest work, unavailable in Lima, they decide to ask him for a copy. Certain Jímenez would never send his book to a couple of dilettantes, they concoct a plan à la Cyrano de Bergerac. They write to him posing as the lovely, imaginary Georgina Hübner. Incredibly, the poet takes the bait and responds with a book and letter. So begins the epistolary romance. As the maestro falls in love with Georgina, he writes his finest poetry. But when the mail delivery is stalled during the dockworkers’ strike, the scheme begins to unravel and reveal the vulgar truth. “This sweepingly beautiful translation will enchant readers. Gómez Bárcena’s style is both fresh and classic, delightful and mysterious, and his characters—who feel like living, breathing creatures—are sure to captivate even as they break your heart.” —Library Journal, starred review “Anyone who has ever wept over a poem or burned to write more and better and despaired because their talent let them down will read this novel and come away feeling understood.” —National Book Review “Gómez Bárcena tackles the most serious topics while masterfully showing how to write a story that’s simultaneously a comedy, a tragedy, and a portrait of another culture. The style is magnificent, the narration told with originality, pulse, and rhythm. There’s little more to say: read Gómez Bárcena.” —El Cultural

Poetry. Translated from the Spanish by Pablo Rodríguez Balbontín and William F. Blair. The Vilas project, now including the book GREAT VILAS in translation, "seems to be a radical rewriting of the contemporary history of the Ibero-American world. Soccer, reality shows, movies, and literary biographies are interspersed with the reading and writing of journalism and historiography, provoking a new logic of entanglements and outcomes as comical as they are satirical, as intimate as ultimately free."—Julio Ortega
