Your face tomorrow by Javier Marías( Book )
27 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 779 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

Dark back of time by Javier Marías( Book )
10 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 557 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."--BOOK JACKET
All souls by Javier Marías( Book )
17 editions published between 1992 and 2013 in English and held by 554 libraries worldwide
At High Table in an Oxford college, the pretty young tutor Clare Bayes attracted all eyes, not least to her fetching decollettage.

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"

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
Tu rostro mañana by Javier Marías( Book )

Jaime discovers that he belongs to the reduced group of people who has a "gift" or curse: to see what people will do in the future, to recognize today how their faces will look tomorrow, to identify who will betray him. With his audacious structure and captivating prose, Javier Marias expands some of his already classic subjects: the unfathomable essence of people, what people are capable of seeing in others ... but very few dare to recognize within their own conscience

En los cuentos de Cuando fui mortal se halla, como señaló en su día la crítica, "la oportunidad de abrir la puerta para vislumbrar el universo único de uno de los mejores novelistas contemporáneos". Por aquí se pasea toda una serie de personajes turbadores: un médico español que visita de noche las casas parisinas de mujeres casadas; un guardaespaldas aficionado al hipódromo que deseará que haya muerto el hombre a quien protege; una aspirante a actriz porno que aguarda la sesión de rodaje junto a su compañero de reparto, al que no conoce; un fantasma que padece la maldición máxima de saber ahora cuanto ocurrió en su vida; un hombre y una mujer muertos por una lanza africana en Madrid; una señorita de compañía que lee libros en voz alta a un fantasma al que ama y muchos otros personajes salidos directamente de Corazón tan blanco o Mañana en la batalla piensa en mí, mostrando que los escritores de talento llevan siempre consigo su estilo y su mundo en sus visitas a cualquier género
