  • [Marias] has a rare ability to haunt the imaginations of his readers. He is more than just a storyteller - he's a manipulator of the psyche who can jolt his readers into new states of perception. Quite a feat for any writer

    New York Journal of Books
  • This is a rewarding collection by one of contemporary literature's masters

    Alex Rayner, Guardian
  • The mannered, precise prose is typically well crafted and the observational comedy at its sharpest. . . Marias thrives in the domain of the mild macabre

    Times Literary Supplement
  • Clever and strange... A fascinating patchwork of characters and stories

    The Times
  • Mirroring ghosts, and doubles are all present in these haunting short stories by the celebrated Spanish author Javier Marías... Superb
