Notă GoodReads:
en Limba Engleză Paperback – March 2018
'Unquestionably the most significant Spanish writer of his generation ... Your Face Tomorrow is rich, haunting, intriguing' Observer
'This trilogy must be one of the greatest novels of our age' Antony Beevor
'Fear is the greatest force that exists, as long as you can adapt to it'
Jacques Deza has been recruited into an undercover spy network by the inscrutable Bertram Tupra. But when he is forced to witness an act of horrifying brutality in a night-club, he finds himself falling apart, haunted by his own memories of the bloodshed of the Spanish Civil War. As Deza tries to disentangle himself from an increasingly disturbing world, the second volume in Javier Marias' magnificent trilogy explores violence, corruption and what we are capable of.

Recenzii

One of contemporary literature's major works... You have to open this book
Fantastically funny... As a practitioner of the novel, Marías has few peers at the moment...Marías is a deeply necessary writer, a crusader, funny, pungent, full of wrath and love
Unquestionably the most significant Spanish writer of his generation... Your Face Tomorrow is a rich, haunting, intriguing, sometimes frustrating meditation on the significance of our lives that also shines an unforgiving light on a too-often forgotten bloodshed
By turns ebullient, snappish, lyrical, self-delighting and chilling... Marías's fiercely perceptive novels are among the best work being produced anywhere at the moment
