Your Face Tomorrow, Volume One: Fever and Spear

by: Javier Marías

Publisher: New Directions Books (2002)


Out of stock

Volume one of a trilogy, this suave and complex novel's narrator is a Spanish academic endowed with acute perception and foresight. With swollen prose and wandering narrative, Marias' character interacts with Oxford scholars and intelligence agents alike. Experimental fiction meets spy novel.
