Tomorrow in the battle think on me by Javier Marías( Book )

102 editions published between 1994 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 1,425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marta has just met Victor when she invites him to dinner at her Madrid apartment while her husband is away on business. When her two-year-old son finally falls asleep, Marta and Victor retreat to the bedroom. Undressing, she feels suddenly ill; and in his arms, inexplicably, she dies. What should Victor do? Remove the compromising tape from the phone machine? Leave food for the child, for breakfast? These are just his first steps, but he soon takes matters further; unable to bear the shadows and the unknowing, Victor plunges into dark waters. And Javier Marias, Europe's master of secrets, of what lies reveal and truth may conceal, is on sure ground in this profound, quirky, and marvelous novel. "Brilliantly imagined and hugely intricate, " as La Vanguardia noted, "it is a novel one reads with enormous pleasure."
Your face tomorrow by Javier Marías( Book )

51 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in English and held by 1,318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Part spy novel, part romance, part Henry James, Your Face Tomorrow is a wholly remarkable display of the immense gifts of Javier Marias. With Fever and Spear, volume one of his unfolding novel Your Face Tomorrow, he returns us to the rarified world of Oxford (the delightful setting of All Souls and Dark Back of Time), while introducing us to territory entirely new--espionage. Our hero, Jaime Deza, separated from his wife in Madrid, is a bit adrift in London until his old friend Sir Peter Wheelerâ, retired Oxford don and semi-retired master spy, recruits him for a new career in British Intelligence. Deza possesses a rare gift for seeing behind the masks people wear. He is soon observing interviews conducted by Her Majesty's secret service: variously shady international businessmen one day, would-be coup leaders the next. Seductively, this metaphysical thriller explores past, present, and future in the ever-more-perilous 21st century. This compelling and enigmatic tour de force from one of Europe's greatest writers continues with volume two, Dance and Dream, and volume three, Poison, Shadow and Farewell
All souls by Javier Marías( Book )

At High Table in an Oxford college, the pretty young tutor Clare Bayes attracted all eyes, not least to her fetching decollettage. No one's eyes were sharper, however, than those of the visiting Spanish lecturer, invited as a guest on this occasion. Eventually the two young people were lovers, unbeknown to Clare's husband. And if the Spaniard was at pains to cover their tracks, his beloved left evidence of adultery with gay abandon - and all this in a university that was a forcing house of gossip and intrigue, a place where "at every word a reputation dies."

Travesía del horizonte by Javier Marías( Book )

56 editions published between 1972 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Al igual que en las grandes novelas de aventuras de finales del XIX, y a las que Travesía del horizonte rinde cariáoso y tambíén burlón homenaje, esta novela tiene como hilo conductor una atrevida expedición: el capitán Kerrigan, millonario y excéntrico, ha organizado un viaje a la Antártida para hombres de letras y científicos. Pero esa travesía no es más que una excusa, uno de los muchos hilos con los que está tejida la trama. Construida según el modelo de el relato dentro del relato, Travesía del horizonte aáade a la aventura marítima de Kerrigan otras historias de personajes no menos novelescos, en deliberada parodia de ciertos maestros del género que van desde Joseph Conrad hasta Henry James pasando por Conan Doyle y entre pintorescos secuestros y manuscritos misteriosos, seáoritas eduardianas y paisajes de navegación , se va desplegando un torbellino narrativo servido por un estilo paradójicamente pausado. Un insólito alarde de osadía narrativa

"A boiled-down gem of a Marías story about how Elvis (in Acapulco to film a movie) and his hard-drinking entourage abandon their interpreter in a seedy cantina full of enraged criminals after insults start to fly. When the local kingpin demands to be told what the Americans are saying, Elvis himself delivers an even more stinging parting shot - and who has to translate that?"--Publisher's website
Voyage along the horizon by Javier Marías( Book )

5 editions published between 1972 and 2006 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marias's second novel was written in the early '70s when he was 21, and it has all of the stylistic grace and wry invention that has put Maras on the Nobel shortlist. An unnamed narrator ruminates on the intentions of a man (variously called Holden Branshaw and Hordern Bragshawe) who decides not to publish a novel written by an unnamed author who died penniless pursuing the life of that novel's subject: Victor Arledge, an author who died a recluse at age 38
When I was mortal by Javier Marías( Book )

43 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A dozen stories by Javier Marias, "the most subtle and gifted writer in contemporary Spanish literature" (The Boston Globe). Victims of mistaken identity, sponging relatives, amateur sleuths, eavesdroppers, professional liars, assassins, and failed bodyguards populate the short stories in When I Was Mortal. Plots turn on curious exigencies--a woman about to star in her first porn film; a night doctor who adds new meaning to "specialist"; a ghost whose neglect is greatly resented
