Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "It has achieved the status of a manifesto: it is one of those unusual books breaks new ground." Le Monde. Codice inventario libreria
Juan knows little about his widowed father Ranz, a man with a troubled past. He does know, however, that before marrying Juan's mother, Ranz was married to her elder sister, who had committed suicide. The unspoken dialogue between father and son soon becomes a spelling out of the horrifying truth once Juan marries Luisa, who turns discreet confessor to the burdened old man. What gradually emerges into the cold light of day is a repetition of scenes already witnessed by Juan in the course of his travels: a married man blackmailed by his mistress in a Havana hotel, a woman in New York pursuing a sequence of shabby lovers through the lonely-hearts columns. Produced with remarkable skill and delicacy, this is a startling picture of two generations, two marriages, and the secret commerce between spouses that rests on the gossamer-thin threads of an unspoken accord.
L'autore: Javier Marías is the author of several award-winning novels, including All Souls, Dark Back of Time, and Tomorrow in the Battle Think On Me.
