This brilliant novel is surely one of the greatest the century has so far produced.
—The New York Times Book Review
—Wendy Lesser, The New York Times Book Review
It is a rare gift to be offered a writer who lives in our own time but speaks with the intensity of the past, who comes with the extra richness lent by a foreign history and nonetheless knows our own culture inside and out.
—James Woodall, The Times
The work of a supreme stylist…The two protagonists’ civilized but complex marriages recall the compelling intricacies of Henry James…It is brilliantly done.
—New York Times
Stylish, cerebral… Marías is a startling talent.
The most subtle and gifted writer in contemporary Spanish literature.
—Wyatt Mason, The New Yorker
Marías’s most extravagant showcase for ‘literary thinking’ so far. It also serves as a compelling introduction to his writing.
Your Face Tomorrow is already being compared to Proust’s À la recherche du temps perdu, and rightly so. It is a novel of extraordinary subtlety and pathos.
These stories provide a fascinating insight into the development of a great writer; particularly his experimentation with voice and subject matter.
