Format: Paperback
Here is a dozen of novels written by Javier Marias, one of the most famous spanish writer in our days. All these works are written under the obsession of the Death and the characters are in a kind of hesitation. And those characters are very attractive. Observation of them by narrator is also very refined and there is a fragment of fetism deep under. You may get lost in the World of J.M. where images of Death construct spirals. Some of his writings are already translated by an brilliant translator, M. J. Costa but anyway, those who happened to have the opportunity to learn a bit of Spanish language may find some pleasure reading this. Give it a shot!

By A Customer on December 5, 2000
Format: Paperback
This volume contains 12 stories by Javier Marias, who is the most famous writer in Spain and winning many prizes for his work. All stories are based on the extraordinal situations and but once you start reading, you can not stop it as he writes so elegantly.
