Everything is travelling towards its own dissolution and is lost and few things leave any trace especially if they are never repeated if they happen only once and never recur the same happens with those things that install themselves too comfortably and recur day after day again and again they leave no trace either The writing of Javier Marias is a different case altogether Repetition and recurrence are common aspects of his books and yet they always leave an everlasting trace on readers mind He handles melancholy with a tender touch of his words and let the sadness tranuilly seep through our being but at the same time he keeps a strand of hope lurking around so that we can comfortably sail through the waves of dense narration he usually resorts to without losing sight of the horizon and gets the precious reward waiting for us on the other side of the shore The vividness of his storytelling is a treasure to behold I can still see that half naked woman lying on her bed and slowly without making any noise without any apparent struggle saying her goodbye to this world Goodbye laughter and goodbye scorn I will never see you again nor will you see me And goodbye ardour goodbye memoriesShe is peacefully resting now or maybe she is a little agitated and trying to come to terms with her new surroundings because the world she has left behind inhabits her dearest ones without whom she hardly imagined her life Her father her sister her husband and her 2 years old child But there is someone else Someone who belongs to her immediate past someone who is a no one for her family someone who could have become someone special for her had she lived a little longer someone who knows the circumstances of her death and that knowledge now bears heavy on his soul That someone is our narrator Victor and he knows his art very well Tomorrow in the battle think on me and fall thy edgeless sword Tomorrow in the battle think on me when I was mortal and let fall thy pointless lance Let me sit heavy on thy soul tomorrow let me be lead within thy bosom and at a bloody battle end thy days Tomorrow in the battle think on me despair and die Victor contemplates these lines from Shakespeare’s Richard III and relates it to his situation A ridiculous situation An unfortunate situation A situation he didn’t choose for himself but now he can’t escape it Then again who choose to become a sole witness to a death Who choose to make memories out of the last breath exhaled from someone’s red lips Who choose to weave a story by pulling out threads out of the last moments someone spent in the arms of an almost stranger Probably no one but life comes with its own bundle of surprises and dilemmas Marías takes up these elements of life and indulge into a philosophical enuiry that treads a long path through unending sentences freuent digressions and an elouent prose He leaves a reader numb by creating something magnificent with a tiny shred of a long forgotten past and illuminates the significance of a supposed inconseuential present He makes us see and makes us admit that sometimes behind a normal facade there hides both an angelic and a demonic form of our soul we never deem to exist We never think ourselves capable of inflicting ruthless pain on someone or view ourselves as some sort of savior and before we know it we becomes an inexplicable reason for somebody’s life and death One sees one’s past life as if it were a plot or a mere piece of circumstantial evidence and then one falsifies and distorts itMore than distortions one can find a great deal of truth in the musings of Javier’s narrators They seem to possess a rare understanding

M homem ue se uestiona en la batalla piensa en Epubpermanentemente sobre o ue distingue a vida e a morteAinda mais ue noutros romances seus Javier Marías revela nos uma narrativa caprichosa acerca das várias uestões ue a todos nos consomem o segredo as acções e as intenções as vontades ue ficam por cumprir a rejeição o esuecimento a indecisão a despedida e acima de tudo o engano ue uiçá é «a nossa condição natural e na realidade não deveria magoar nos tanto. This book no longer existsI told this to the owner of the bookstore it was of course empty You are the second person to complain The first was much younger than you More my age You have not read the book I asked as he sat at the edge of a table mostly emptied He shook his head Then that would explain it I would like my money returned Can't do But I no longer have a book that I bought here Explain yourselfOK It begins with a dead woman in the narrator's arms He will remember her name but never see her face again I'm hooked The three hundred and eleven pages solid in my hands It read fastBut you were disappointedNo you're not understanding He was a great storyteller craftsman He planted images situations thoughts throughout tightening the narrative creating unuestioned believability There was a voice It was a voice of intense inner reflection but never interrupted the flow The suspense kept me reading through two nightsYou want your money back because you didn't sleep I have boring books for youNo The plot was intricate perfectly balanced pitched At times the voice even evolved into hard boiled crime noir in breaks from this fascinating inner life of self reflections I bought a suspense novel It was what I needed But set in this noir form was the highest philosophical thinking on the nature of reality on identityToo difficultNot at all He mixed speculation with dramatization of everyday life It isn't as though this crime story of everyday detail is greatness likeVirgilorI sold it to you as greatnessNo yes you did You said it was what set him apart That within this non elevated non classical literature form he spoke both to modern times and the universal You said that it wasn't some masterful trick of craft And He folded his armsOK There was greatness The story evolved from its complex characters heartless surprisingly caring at times fascinating But he showed how our identities are cobbled together by distorting and selecting memories delusions If we can get others to mirror back this image of us we then can see ourselves how we need to see ourselves We select those who will provide this favor but they too are cobbled together and wanting to create themselves as a certain presentation According to him this is true of all the broadcasted world What we see on the news read in the papers is prepared rehearsed then proffered in distillations according to same favored planHe rose then sat down again I said thisI read it In the bookEverything is storiesHe shows that the teller of the story has the power and will tell it any way they want Then it will be the listener's to hold and make their own to tell to themselves and others The same story can never be told the same twice not even by the same person Our consciousness will be filled by the stories we tell ourselves and those told us by othersSo in the end it wasn't suspenseful enough and you want your money back Like the last guy It's not going to happenI haven't eaten for for three daysI have no food here Didn't you see the signI can't eat I haven't finished reading the book yet I'm just coming to the endI sure hope soNo I mean the end of the book I have to find out what happensSo why didn't you bring the damn book and finish reading itBecauseBecause the book I held in my hands was a storya story being tolda story cobbled together out of the consciousness of someone cobbled together Sorry Mr Marias It was a great story about the immutability of truth about writing and reading about life as if we lived on a forgotten planet and knowing this all history is our attempts to adapt and survive Everything Even this conversation After leaving me heart pounded and s

He must have thought his luck was in they arranged to meet around her place she had a two year old son who was hopefully now off in the land of dreams just the two of them alone in her bedroom the muted TV is playing an old black and white movie with subtitles after a few glasses of wine to soften the mood he is hopeful one thing will lead to another gearing up for the moment passion takes hold he wants her The last thing he expected was for her to die suddenly at that very moment A second ago she was in the land of the living but now gone departed in a flash what does he do it's not an everyday occurrence one would be caught in a strange situation like this He barely knows her she has a husband away in London in a panic does he call and what about the boy asleep in the next room could he simply just vanish into the dead of night without a trace leaving all the difficulties to the person who would discovery the body As far as her family is concerned she died alone But there are lose ends Decisions decisions decisionsNo one ever expects that they might someday find themselves with a dead woman in their armsCoetzee and Rushdie are fans so was the late WG Sebald and I myself think Marías is one of the finest contemporary writers of his time and it comes as no surprise to me he kicks off this intriguing and deep psychodrama of sex guilt and family ties with the preliminaries of sex something he seductively covers well in other novels It is an intellectually stimulating affair set in Madrid with psychological insights into how death firmly grapples with the living Marías has a habit of characterising long rambling sentences that sometimes drift and divert away from the main story woven together to form cascading pages long paragraphs that I could image driving certain readers nuts This was my forth Marías and probably the one I say is least accessible to any newbies unless of course you don't mind being thrown into the deep end with his work For all it's frustrations it was just so darn tantalizing to read He thoroughly held my attention even in the places that to a degree pissed me offAfter the initial unexpected setback of witnessing death the narrator Victor a ghostwriter obsessively tries to find out about his date Marta the deceased and her husband and family before slowly revealing to the woman's sister and father what happened that night But this is not a conventional story there are side plots on aspects of identity concerning Victor a meeting with the King of Spain a flashback to a sexual encounter he had with a prostitute and his estranged wife than two years earlier this does though help to truly get inside Victor's shoes and what he is all about This is a novel for some where not a lot really happens and what does happens at a glacial pace that may put off the casual reader That is because so many small actions and gestures however brief long winded conversations and even internal thought processes are meticulously analyzed under the Microscope There are also some unlikable self centred characters within but hey isn't that the real world Marias does though achieve the sort of tension and suspense that could be classed as Hitchcockesue albeit on a deeper psychological level The tone of the book was the thing that surprised me the most It's not as dark as it sounds at times unsettling yes but on occasions an Almodovar style wry humour bubbles to the surface Many of the scenes are prolonged but you feel with a purpose eventually bringing clarity to his dreamlike puzzle as it draws to a close where Marias shows the dead struggling against their own dissolution and seeking embodiment in the one th
