9780811219242: Your Face Tomorrow: Poison, Shadow, and Farewell (Vol. 3)

Your Face Tomorrow, Javier Marías’s daring novel in three parts culminates triumphantly in this much-anticipated final volume.

Poison, Shadow, and Farewell, with its heightened tensions between meditations and noir narrative, with its wit and and ever deeper forays into the mysteries of consciousness, brings to a stunning finale Marías’s three-part Your Face Tomorrow. Already this novel has been acclaimed “exquisite“ (Publishers Weekly), “gorgeous” (Kirkus), and “outstanding: another work of urgent originality” (London Independent). Poison, Shadow, and Farewell takes our hero Jaime Deza―hired by MI6 as a person of extraordinarily sophisticated powers of perception―back to Madrid to both spy on and try to protect his own family, and into new depths of love and loss, with a fluency on the subject of death that could make a stone weep.

He currently lives in Madrid.

Margaret Jull Costa is the award-winning translator of works by Eça de Quieros, Javier Marías, and José Saramago.

Review:

Poison, Shadow and Farewell delivers a payoff at the end, but the real challenge, and pleasure, is in getting there.”
- Larry Rohter, The New York Times

“This brilliant trilogy must be one of the greatest novels of our age.”
- Antony Beevor, Sunday Telegraph [London]

“Like so much of Marías's extraordinary writing, it is unforgettable.”
- Margaret Drabble, Times Literary Supplement

“The strange mixture of high cultural references and Jaques' essentially thriller-like story line, make for a reading experience like no other.”
- Washington Examiner

“This novel...crowns Marías's trilogy and his translator's lively English rendering of it with narrative honor.”
- John Spurling, Times Onlne [UK]

“Like the other volumes in the sequence, Poison, Shadow and Farewell is as stealthy as any spy.”
- Louise Welsh, Financial Times

“This deeply strange creation...may very well be the first authentic literary masterpiece of the 21st century.”
- James Lasdun, The Guardian [UK]

“Quite unlike anything else today.... One of the finest novels of modern times.”
- Tim Martin, The Telegraph [UK]

“A literary tour de force ... as much about the past from which we are made as the present we have become.”
- The Economist

“The conclusion...is to be reminded of the intricacy with which he has fitted his pieces into the larger part.”
- Colin Torre, Kansas City Free Press

“Marías's own seemingly infinite imaginings broaden and complicate the novel form―illuminating the undersides of the past and its characters.”
- David Haglund, The National [Abu Dhabi]

“This talented and prolific "new Proust" has completed the third book of his monumental trilogy.... The long sentences and paragraphs dear to Marias, a wordsmith translator of Sterne's Tristram Shandy as well as works by Faulkner, Conrad, and Nabokov, are a delight to navigate as the author pursues with surgical precision his relentless quest to discover what motivates the actions of his characters. Recommended.”
- Library Journal

“His most moving and personal work to date.”
- Megan Doll, The Believer

“The fear and pain that Marías has built up for a thousand pages oozes out like oily fate.”
- Justin McNeil, Bomblog

Your Face Tomorrow is already being compared to Proust’s A la recherche du temps perdu, and rightly so.”
- The Observer

“The overall effect recalls the cerebral play of Borges, the dark humor of Pynchon, and meditative lyricism of Proust.””
- Review of Contemporary Fiction

“By one of the most original writers at work today, Your Face Tomorrow [is] as accomplished and sui generis as all his mature work [and the] most affecting narrative feat in Marías’s work to date.”
- The New York Times Book Review

“He mediates thriller or noir scenarios through a formidably erudite and elegant and sophisticated consciousness.”
- Mark Ford, New York Review of Books

“Here's the wonderfully parenthetical operations of a human mind in the 21st century.”
- Mauro Javier Cardenas, San Francisco Chronicle

“A seriousness of purpose, an eagerness to engage with ... metaphysical questions and to incorporate them into a gripping story.”
- Tess Lewis, New Criterion
