Las notas inéditas escritas por Javier Marías para una clase magistral sobre el Quijote impartida en Wellesley College, Massachussetts, en 1984. 2016 AÑO CERVANTES El Quijote de Wellesley es una mirada inédita y magistral de Javier Marías sobre la obra más importante escrita nunca en español. «Cabe la posibilidad de que algunos lectores de hoy se animen a leer el Quijote en la compañía de aquel semijoven de treinta y tres años, de manera parecida a como lo hicieron aquellas alumnas de Wellesley. »Estas notas lo recorren casi capítulo a capítulo, aunque en algunos momentos me extendí mucho, y llegué a escribir #minitextos# articulados, y en otros poco o nada. Lo que se ve a las claras es cuáles fueron mis intereses en aquella lectura, y cuáles son mis motivos para considerar esa novela la más rica y compleja que jamás se haya escrito. Me temo que esos motivos míos no coinciden demasiado con los de la mayoría de mis colegas novelistas, pretéritos o contemporáneos. Si algo prueba la vigencia del Quijote es la infinita cantidad de lecturas que de él pueden hacerse, a menudo opuestas o contradictorias. Esta es la mía, que no ha variado sustancialmente desde 1984.» Javier Marías J.M. Coetzee ha dicho... «Javier Marías es, en mi opinión, uno de los mejores escritores europeos contemporáneos.»

Dark Back of Time is a compelling story of the way in which reality blurs into fiction by Javier Marías, whose highly-anticipated new novel The Infatuations is published in 2013. It is translated by Esther Allen in Penguin Modern Classics. 'We lose everything because everything remains except us', says the mysterious narrator of this extraordinary novel, which meditates on the transience, chance and fragility of life. As a man called Javier Marías recalls the strange events and people that shaped his past, including ghostly literary figures, a pilot, an adventurer, a brother who died as a child and the king of an island in the Caribbean, we begin to question the nature of time, memory and reality itself. Here the writer is both a keeper of memories and a purveyor of illusions, destined to be lost in the dark back of time. Javier Marías was born in Madrid in 1951. He has published ten novels, two collections of short stories and several volumes of essays. His work has been translated into thirty-two languages and won a dazzling array of international literary awards, including the prestigious Dublin IMPAC award for A Heart So White. He is also a highly practised translator into Spanish of English authors, including Joseph Conrad, Robert Louis Stevenson, Sir Thomas Browne and Laurence Sterne. 'I was enthralled by his strange mix of made-up memories, lost experiences and real-life fantasies' Marina Warner, Guardian 'He uses language like an anatomist uses a scalpel to lay bare the innermost secrets of that strangest of species, the human being' W. G. Sebald, author of Austerlitz

Javier Marías, además de un inmenso escritor, es para muchos un punto de referencia en el análisis de la actualidad, y su columna dominical es una de las más leídas y comentadas de la prensa española. Ni se les ocurra disparar recoge cerca de un centenar de artículos publicados por Javier Marías entre 2009 y 2011 en El País Semanal. Con una prosa elegante, franca y sin ambages, que no necesita adornos para alcanzar la conciencia del lector con un disparo certero, para remover sus entrañas o, al contrario, reconfortarlo, el autor nos presenta su particular percepción del mundo y de su entorno. En esta recopilación encontramos al Javier Marías más cercano y reflexivo, preocupado por la realidad que lo rodea. La sumisión y deliberada idiotización de las sociedades contemporáneas, la irresponsabilidad e ineptitud de los políticos, las vicisitudes de la creación artística o la evocación de mundos perdidos y fugazmente recuperados son algunos de los temas sobre los que el gran novelista nos ofrece su mirada más sincera y personal.

Cada mañana María Dolz contempla en una cafetería a una pareja a la que no conoce de nada, cuya felicidad intuye y acaso envidia. Este ritual la ayuda a empezar la jornada, hasta que un día se entera de la muerte del hombre a manos de un enajenado. Más tarde, una relación imprevista, quizá imprudente, acerca a María a los pormenores del suceso. El embriagador estado de enamoramiento y las acciones que desencadena, positivas o viles, generosas o egoístas, la impunidad, la presencia casi permanente de los muertos en nuestras vidas, la memoria, la imposibilidad de conocer cabalmente la verdad son algunos de los temas por los que discurre, firme y sinuosa, una de las mejores novelas de su autor.

A thrilling new literary offering from the acclaimed author of The Infatuations andA Heart So White 'For a while, she wasn't sure that her husband was her husband. Sometimes she thought he was, and sometimes not...' Berta Isla and Tomás Nevinson meet in Madrid. They are both very young and quickly decide to spend their lives together - never suspecting that they will grow to be total strangers, both living living under the shadow of disappearances. Tomás, half-Spanish and half-English, has an extraordinary gift for languages and accents. Leaving Berta to study at Oxford, he catches the interest of a certain government agency, and its mysterious agent, Bertram Tupra. But Tomás resists the call of fate - until one, foolish day he makes an avoidable mistake - setting in motion events that will affect the rest of his life and that of his beloved Berta. Finishing his time at Oxford, he returns to Madrid to marry her, already knowing the life they planned has been lost forever. Darkly gripping, Berta Isla is a story about a relationship condemned to secrecy and concealment, to pretence and conjecture, to resentment mingled with loyalty. With meticulous insight and understanding of the human soul, Marías examines the urge to change our destiny, and the hopeless exiles we bring upon ourselves.

On the Edge is a monumental fresco of a brutal contemporary Spain in free fall On the Edge opens with the discovery of a rotting corpse in the marshes on the outskirts of Olba, Spain—a town wracked by despair after the burst of the economic bubble, and a microcosm of a world of defeat, debt, and corruption. Stuck in this town is Esteban—his small factory bankrupt, his investments stolen by a “friend,” and his unloved father, a mute invalid, entirely his personal burden. Much of the novel unfolds in Esteban’s raw and tormented monologues. But other voices resound from the wreckage—soloists stepping forth from the choir—and their words, sharp as knives, crowd their terse, hypnotic monologues of ruin, prostitution, and loss. Chirbes alternates this choir of voices with a majestic third-person narration, injecting a profound and moving lyricism and offering the hope that a new vitality can emerge from the putrid swamps. On the Edge, even as it excoriates, pulsates with robust life, and its rhythmic, torrential style marks the novel as an indelible masterpiece.

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.

The author himself was a man of great poetic gifts who had established himself as a leading light in the Oxford literary circles, tutored by no less a person than First World War veteran and acclaimed poet Edmund Blunden. A talent that did not outlast the war, killed in action in Normandy 1944, but his lasting legacy is contained in this exceptional book.

Having passed out of the officer training course at Sandhurst, he was sent to the Middle East in 1941 to join his comrades in the Sherwood Foresters Yeomanry (a tank unit). He was disappointed to be given a staff appointment away from the fighting line; and during the Battle of El Alamein, he snapped and as he put it; “The battle of Alamein began on the 23rd of October, 1942. Six days afterwards I set out in direct disobedience of orders to rejoin my regiment. My batman was delighted with this manoeuvre. ‘I like you, sir,’ he said. ‘You’re shit or bust, you are.’ This praise gratified me a lot.” ...and so began his odyssey began from the Alamein line to victory at Zem Zem. Critically acclaimed at the time of publication, and now widely regarded as a military classic. “one of the very best prose accounts of fighting the last war.”—Philip Toynbee, The Observer.

A story of love and memory. On a train journey from Paris to Madrid a young opera singer becomes fascinated by those in his compartment: a middle-aged businessman, his alluring wife and their male traveling companion. Soon his life of constant travel, luxury hotels, rehearsal and performance will become entangled with these three people, and the singer will find himself fatefully consumed by Natalia's beauty.

Intricately interweaving desire and memory, it explores the nature of love, and asks whether we can ever truly recall something that no longer exists.

Javier Marías is a major contemporary Spanish novelist who has enjoyed remarkable international success and recognition. He is a writer who has undergone a singular and clearly discernible novelistic evolution and has forged a very distinctive style of his own. It is this formal development that this book traces through a study of his works from Los dominios del lobo (1971) to Negra espalda del tiempo (1998). With the help of a wide range of 20th-century literary theories and criticism, it strives to show that in order to escape realism and Spanishness and to make his way into literature, Marías forges an intricate style which progressively develops and matures, and which creates highly suggestive and elaborate imaginative worlds, a literature with a particular ontology, ultimately capable of inventing reality. This book is the first full-length study of Javier Marías's work to be published so far and serves both as an introduction to, and a close examination of, the work of a major European writer.
