Editorial Reviews

The Observer
“Your Face Tomorrow is already being compared to Proust’s A la recherche du temps perdu, and rightly so.”
The Economist
“A literary tour de force ... as much about the past from which we are made as the present we have become.”
The New York Times Book Review
“By one of the most original writers at work today, Your Face Tomorrow [is] as accomplished and sui generis as all his mature work [and the] most affecting narrative feat in Marías’s work to date.”
Review of Contemporary Fiction
“The overall effect recalls the cerebral play of Borges, the dark humor of Pynchon, and meditative lyricism of Proust.””
Washington Examiner
“The strange mixture of high cultural references and Jaques' essentially thriller-like story line, make for a reading experience like no other.”
Margaret Drabble - Times Literary Supplement
“Like so much of Marías's extraordinary writing, it is unforgettable.”
Justin McNeil - Bomblog
“The fear and pain that Marías has built up for a thousand pages oozes out like oily fate.”
Megan Doll - The Believer
“His most moving and personal work to date.”
Tess Lewis - New Criterion
“A seriousness of purpose, an eagerness to engage with ... metaphysical questions and to incorporate them into a gripping story.”
Louise Welsh - Financial Times
“Like the other volumes in the sequence, Poison, Shadow and Farewell is as stealthy as any spy.”
John Spurling - Times Onlne [UK]
“This novel…crowns Marías's trilogy and his translator's lively English rendering of it with narrative honor.”
James Lasdun - The Guardian [UK]
“This deeply strange creation…may very well be the first authentic literary masterpiece of the 21st century.”
Larry Rohter - The New York Times
“Poison, Shadow and Farewell delivers a payoff at the end, but the real challenge, and pleasure, is in getting there.”
Tim Martin - The Telegraph [UK]
“Quite unlike anything else today…. One of the finest novels of modern times.”
Colin Torre - Kansas City Free Press
“The conclusion…is to be reminded of the intricacy with which he has fitted his pieces into the larger part.”
Mauro Javier Cardenas - San Francisco Chronicle
“Here's the wonderfully parenthetical operations of a human mind in the 21st century.”
Mark Ford - New York Review of Books
“He mediates thriller or noir scenarios through a formidably erudite and elegant and sophisticated consciousness.”
David Haglund - The National [Abu Dhabi]
“Marías's own seemingly infinite imaginings broaden and complicate the novel form—illuminating the undersides of the past and its characters.”
Antony Beevor - Sunday Telegraph [London]
“This brilliant trilogy must be one of the greatest novels of our age.”
