El delirante y perturbador misterio de un impostor

El narrador vio por primera vez a aquel hombre en 1971 o 1972, cuando Allende era aún Presidente de Chile. Escribía poemas distantes y cautelosos, seducía a las mujeres y despertaba en los hombres una indefinible desconfianza. Volvió a verlo después del golpe, pero en ese momento ignoraba que aquel aviador, que escribía versículos de la Biblia con el humo de un avión de la Segunda Guerra Mundial y el poeta, eran uno, y el mismo. Y así nos es...

He begins with his disastrous first marriage to an American named Helen, and the vacation they took in a last-ditch attempt to save their relationship.

Josep Pla, a budding young writer, was studying law in Barcelona in 1918 when the university was shut down because of the Spanish flu epidemic.

Called by its author a “false novel,” Dark Back of Time begins with the tale of the odd effects of publishing the 1989 novel All Souls, a book Marías swears to be fiction, but which its “characters”–the real-life dons and professors who have “recognized themselves”–fiercely maintain to be a roman à clef. With the sleepy world of Oxford set into fretful motion by a world that never “existed,” Dark Back of Time begins an odyssey into the nature of identity and of time.

In All Souls, a visiting Spanish lecturer, viewing Oxford through a prismatic detachment, is alternately amused, puzzled, delighted, and disgusted by its vagaries of human vanity. A bit lonely, with few classes to teach and a charming but elusive married mistress, he casts about for activity.Yet so much goes into simply “being” at Oxford: friendship, opinion-mongering, one-upmanship, finicky exchanges of favors, gossip, adultery, book-collecting, back-patting, backstabbing. Javier Marías...

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.

“Mariás is a startling talent. . . . His prose is ambitious, ironic, philosophical and ultimately compassionate, forgiving of the...
