Product Details


“Marías is simply astonishing.” —The Times Literary Supplement
“Marías is a startling talent…His prose is ambitious, ironic, philosophical, and ultimately compassionate.” —The New York Times
“By far Spain’s best writer today.” —Roberto Bolaño
“The most subtle and gifted writer in contemporary Spanish literature.” —The Boston Globe
“A digressive narrative that moves back and forth in time….There is nothing quite like it in fiction today.” —The New York Times Book Review
“Marias’s literary gamesmanship evokes verbal puzzle-makers like Borges, and his ingenious chessboard plots bring to mind the 20th century’s grand-master strategist, Vladimir Nabokov. Yet his style is uniquely his own as are the discoveries he makes while rummaging around in the basement of the human heart.” —Los Angeles Times
“A book that reflects the torture of love the way arias reflect heartbreak.” —Washington Times
“The unspoken romance at the heart of Marías’s work is the recuperation of old-fashioned adventure within perfectly serious, cerebral contemporary fiction.” —The Daily Beast
“Marías has defined the ethos of our time.” —The Guardian, UK
“Beyond the interesting ideas his work draws on, Marías’s novels are simply a pleasure to read.” —The Millions
