At High Table in an Oxford college, the pretty young tutor Clare Bayes attracted all eyes, not least to her fetching decollettage. No one's eyes were sharper, however, than those of the visiting Spanish lecturer, invited as a guest on this occasion. Eventually the two young people were lovers, unbeknown to Clare's husband. 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."

Your face tomorrow by Javier Marías( Book )

25 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in English and held by 816 WorldCat member 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

Marias's second novel was written in the early '70s when he was 21, and it has all of the stylistic grace and wry invention that has put Maras on the Nobel shortlist. An unnamed narrator ruminates on the intentions of a man (variously called Holden Branshaw and Hordern Bragshawe) who decides not to publish a novel written by an unnamed author who died penniless pursuing the life of that novel's subject: Victor Arledge, an author who died a recluse at age 38

"A boiled-down gem of a Marías story about how Elvis (in Acapulco to film a movie) and his hard-drinking entourage abandon their interpreter in a seedy cantina full of enraged criminals after insults start to fly. When the local kingpin demands to be told what the Americans are saying, Elvis himself delivers an even more stinging parting shot - and who has to translate that?"--Publisher's website

When I was mortal by Javier Marías( Book )

40 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A dozen stories by Javier Marias, "the most subtle and gifted writer in contemporary Spanish literature" (The Boston Globe). Victims of mistaken identity, sponging relatives, amateur sleuths, eavesdroppers, professional liars, assassins, and failed bodyguards populate the short stories in When I Was Mortal. Plots turn on curious exigencies--a woman about to star in her first porn film; a night doctor who adds new meaning to "specialist"; a ghost whose neglect is greatly resented
Your face tomorrow by Javier Marías( Book )

16 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jacques Deza isn't at all sure whether he likes some of the characters he is meeting in London. Having left Spain after the break-up of his marriage, he has allowed a friend to talk him into working for an MI6-like organisation run by the enigmatic Bertram Tupra. Deza's role is a seemingly innocuous one: he is to observe and comment on the behaviour of certain people. But watching and listening are not necessarily innocent occupations. If the first volume of this trilogy saw Deza questioning the morality of his new job, the surprising events of the second leave him shaken to the core. In a nightclub scene that is a tour de force - both hilarious and utterly chilling - Deza is forced by his spy-master boss Tupra to witness an act of shocking brutality. Is Deza somehow implicated in Tupra's unexpected behaviour? And will he be able to disentangle himself from a situation that is becoming increasingly disturbing?"--Jacket
