Summary
"A new, exhilarating collection of critical and personal writings -- spanning more than twenty years of work -- from the internationally renowned author of The Infatuations and A heart so white. A Vintage Books Original. Javier Marías is a tireless examiner of the world around us: essayist, novelist, translator, voracious reader, enthusiastic debunker of pretension, and vigorous polymath. He is able to discover what many of us fail to notice or have never put into words, and he keeps looking long after most of us have turned away. This new collection of essays -- by turns literary, philosophical, and autobiographical -- journeys from the crumbling canals of Venice to the wide horizons of the Wild West, and Marías captures each new vista with razor-sharp acuity and wit. He explores, with characteristic relish, subjects ranging from soccer to classic cinema, from comic books and toy soldiers to mortality and memory, from The most conceited of ities to Why almost no one can be trusted, making each brilliantly and inimitably his own. Trenchant and wry, subversive and penetrating, Between eternities is a collection of dazzling intellectual curiosity, offering a window into the expansive mind of the man so often said to be Spain's greatest living writer"--
