Marías, Javier: When I Was Mortal

A dozen stories by Javier Marías, "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."A great writer." --Salman Rushdie

"A refreshing discovery... [they] should be welcomed here like a bracing tonic." --Chicago Tribune

"Dazzling.... Javier Marías writes with elegance, with wit and with masterful suspense." --The Times Literary Supplement

“His prose demonstrates an unusual blend of sophistication and accessibility.” —The New Yorker
