    Hola, quizás os interese saber que tenemos una colección que incluye el relato ‘NippleJesus’ de Nick Hornby en versión original conjuntamente con el relato ‘Strangers When We Meet’ de Hanif Kureishi.

    El formato de esta colección es innovador porque permite leer directamente la obra en inglés sin necesidad de usar el diccionario al integrarse un glosario en cada página.
