Short Description

Having left Spain after the break-up of his marriage, Jacques Deza has allowed a friend to talk him into working for an MI6-like organisation run by the enigmatic Bertram Tupra. Deza's role is a seemingly innocuous one: he is to observe and comment on the behaviour of certain people.

Full Description

Having left Spain after the break-up of his marriage, Jacques Deza has allowed a friend to talk him into working for an MI6-like organisation run by the enigmatic Bertram Tupra. Deza's role is a seemingly innocuous one: he is to observe and comment on the behaviour of certain people. But watching and listening are not necessarily innocent occupations. If the first volume of the trilogy saw Deza questining the morality of his new job, the surprising events of the second leave him shaken to the core. In a nightclub scene that is a tour de force, Deza is forced by his spy-master boss Tupra to witness an act of shocking brutality. Is Deza somehow implicated in Tupra's unexpected behaviour? And will he be able to disentangle himself from a situation that is becoming increasingly disturbing?

Review

"One of contemporary literature's major works... You have to open this book" -- Ali Smith "Fantastically funny... As a practitioner of the novel, Marias has few peers at the moment...Marias is a deeply necessary writer, a crusader, funny, pungent, full of wrath and love" Guardian "Unquestionably the most significant Spanish writer of his generation... Your Face Tomorrow is a rich, haunting, intriguing, sometimes frustrating meditation on the significance of our lives that also shines an unforgiving light on a too-often forgotten bloodshed" Observer "By turns ebullient, snappish, lyrical, self-delighting and chilling... Marias's fiercely perceptive novels are among the best work being produced anywhere at the moment" Independent on Sunday "This trilogy must be one of the greatest novels of our age" -- Anthony Beevor
