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."

Madrid, 1980. Juan de Vere, nearly finished with his university degree, takes a job as personal assistant to Eduardo Muriel, an eccentric, once-successful film director. Urbane, discreet, irreproachable, Muriel is an irresistible idol to the young man. But Muriel's voluptuous wife, Beatriz, inhabits their home like an unwanted ghost; and on the periphery of their lives is Dr. Jorge Van Vechten, a family friend implicated in unsavory rumors that Muriel now asks Juan to investigate. As Juan draws closer to the truth, he uncovers only more questions. What is at the root of Muriel's hostility toward his wife? How did Beatriz meet Van Vechten? What happened during the war? Marías leads us deep into the intrigues of these characters, through a daring exploration of rancor, suspicion, loyalty, trust, and the infinitely permeable boundaries between the deceptions perpetrated on us by others and those we inflict upon ourselves
All souls by Javier Marías( Book )

137 editions published between 1989 and 2014 in 8 languages and held by 1,174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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"

Dark back of time by Javier Marías( Book )

57 editions published between 1988 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,070 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Yet this backwash of All Souls only begins an odyssey into the nature of identity ("We do not know anyone entirely, not even ourselves") and of time. And it is time which Marias manipulates with the flair of Sterne: he weaves together autobiography (the brother who died as a child; the loss of his mother), a legendary kingdom, strange ghostly literary figures, a one-eyed pilot, a curse in Havana, a bullet lost in Mexico. An ironic puzzle, Dark Back of Time explores the powers of art and reality as well as of memories, which become only more mysterious the more Marias remembers."--Jacket
Written lives by Javier Marías( Book )

78 editions published between 1992 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 773 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In addition to his own busy writing career, Javier Marías is also the translator into Spanish of works by Hardy, Stevenson, Conrad, Faulkner, Nabokov, and Laurence Sterne. His love for these authors is the touchstone of this work. Collected here are twenty pieces recounting great writers' lives. Thomas Mann, Rilke, Arthur Conan Doyle, Turgenev, Djuna Barnes, Emily Bronte, Malcolm Lowry, and Kipling appear ("all fairly disastrous individuals"), and "almost nothing" in his stories is invented
Your face tomorrow by Javier Marías( Book )

23 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 764 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
Voyage along the horizon by Javier Marías( Book )

62 editions published between 1972 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 556 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

"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

Your face tomorrow by Javier Marías( Book )

17 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jacques Deza isn't at all sure whether he likes some of the characters he is meeting in London. Having left Spain after the break-up of his marriage, he has allowed a friend to talk him into working for an MI6-like organisation run by the enigmatic Bertram Tupra. Deza's role is a seemingly innocuous one: he is to observe and comment on the behaviour of certain people. But watching and listening are not necessarily innocent occupations. If the first volume of this trilogy saw Deza questioning the morality of his new job, the surprising events of the second leave him shaken to the core. In a nightclub scene that is a tour de force - both hilarious and utterly chilling - Deza is forced by his spy-master boss Tupra to witness an act of shocking brutality. Is Deza somehow implicated in Tupra's unexpected behaviour? And will he be able to disentangle himself from a situation that is becoming increasingly disturbing?"--Jacket
