Javier Marías ´ Veneno y sombra y adiós text
Private lives and horrific acts The scenes enter him like a poison contaminating everything good yet he is powerless to counteract themMind and memory polluted Deza goes home to Madrid on leave to find his father gently slipping towards death and his wife Luisa The reality is this if you are lucky as a reader you will find that writer who is a mirror of yourself who pens the sentences and stories you would pen had you the nerve the time Marias for me is that writer so it is with great narcissism that I award him five stars and recommend any and all to read him Of course many won't and the pity is that he has such a long eye reaching both back and forwardhe understands our sins and he casts both aspersions and patience on them I put this book aside mid read I confess and my husband asked me Has Marias been replaced? because a year ago I read 2666 and right after The Savage Detectives It's true I had found a competing love But then I finished PSF Read these books for they trace what's left of our humanity even as they uestion whether or not we had humanity in the first place Isn't that what a novelist is supposed to do?

Veneno y sombra y adiósJacues Deza is back in London and once again working for the mysterious intelligence agency run by Bertram Tupra Deza finds himself forced to watch Tupra's collection of incriminating videotapes of important public figures The recordings document unconventional There's a select group of novels in my reading history the first time I read them I would occasionally become deeply envious of people who hadn't started them because that meant they had something amazing to look forward to The first time it happened was with War Peace It also happened with The Magic Mountain Gravity's Rainbow although I was sick when I read it so it might have just been a fever The Tenant of Wildfell Hall and Gerard Woodward's sort of memoir trilogy That's not to say all of these books are eually good and certainly not that they have much in common Anyway I got that feeling with this volume of Your Face Tomorrow Like many of the above books it'll probably take three or four reads before I really have any idea what this is even about but my best guess so far is 20th century 'total' warfare leads us to be suspicious of language and thought Thanks to this suspicion and a possible cultural decline we are decreasingly able to use these things properly and those who are able to use them properly often end up using them for pretty obviously evil or self interested acts This gets very self reflexive for a novelist particularly one like Marias who accurately believes that he can use language and thought well In the hands of a lesser man or woman the book would end up feeling like a novelist's lament for the art of the novel in which the real world is little than a tool used to talk about books With Marias though we're given a book which reminds us that novelists are people too; like the rest of us they're concerned with ideas and thoughts and knowing other people Instead of being another navel gazing disuisition on the impossibility of modernist literature in a post modern world then we get a book about what it's like to live in a world that makes it difficult to take important things including but not limited to modernist literature seriously But just by being one of those important things Your Face Tomorrow reminds us that we can be serious people Also Maria Jull Costa is the best translator I know Amazing work
