Una novela sobre el deseo, el rencor y los angeles arbitrariedad del perdón.
Libro del año 2014 según Babelia.

Así empieza lo malo cuenta los angeles historia íntima de un matrimonio de muchos años, narrada por su joven testigo cuando este es ya un hombre plenamente adulto. Juan de Vere encuentra su primer empleo como secretario own de Eduardo Muriel, un antaño exitoso director de cine, en el Madrid de 1980. Su trabajo le permite entrar en los angeles privacidad de l. a. casa prevalent y ser espectador de l. a. misteriosa desdicha conyugal entre Muriel y su esposa Beatriz Noguera.

Muriel le encarga que investigue y sonsaque a un amigo suyo de media vida, el medical professional Jorge Van Vechten, de cuyo indecente comportamiento en el pasado le han llegado rumores. Pero Juan no se limitará a eso y tomará dudosas iniciativas, porque, como él mismo reconoce desde su edad madura, -los jóvenes tienen el alma y los angeles conciencia aplazadas-. Así descubrirá que no hay justicia desinteresada, sino que está siempre contaminada por el rencor own y por los propios deseos, y que todo perdón o castigo son arbitrarios.

«Es un libro sobre el deseo, como uno de los motores más fuertes en los angeles vida de las personas, que a veces lleva a pasar por encima de cualquier lealtad, consideración e incluso respeto en el trato con los demás. Otro de los temas de los angeles novela es l. a. impunidad y los angeles arbitrariedad del perdón y del no perdón. Cómo l. a. proposal de justicia que l. a. gente reclama a veces tiene mucho que ver con que el acto en sí nos afecte o no.»
Javier Marías

La crítica ha dicho...
«No es una novela autobiográfica, pero sí tiene vivencias de los angeles juventud del autor. No es una novela política, pero sus resonancias están allí. No es una novela sobre los años eighty, pero los angeles acción transcurre en esa década. No es una novela histórica, pero las esquirlas de los angeles posguerra Guerra Civil, en los años forty y 50, alcanzan a sus personajes. No es una novela de amor, pero sí de l. a. desdicha del matrimonio protagonista. No es una novela de venganzas, pero sí sobre l. a. impunidad y l. a. arbitrariedad del perdón.»
Winston Manrique, El País

Edward St Aubyn, the hot York instances ebook Review

«Un escritor profundamente necesario, un caballero andante, divertido, punzante, lleno de ira y amor.»

Kirkus Reviews

«Hechizante... evoca a creadores de acertijos como Borges, y las tramas de Marías, ingeniosas como jugadas de ajedrez, traen a los angeles mente al gran maestro estratega del siglo XX, Vladimir Nabokov.»

Ali Smith, The Sunday Telegraph

«Javier Marías es, en mi opinión, uno de los mejores escritores europeos contemporáneos.»

Example text

Already in "Build-up" ("The Concentration City"), one of Ballard's earliest stories, the urge for transcendence is manifested in the protagonist's dream offlightinfreespace, in a place where "There were no walls. Nothing but emptiness" (33). This dream inspires him to build a flying machine and to embark upon a ques for free space, a quest, however, thwarted by the infinite nature of the city which proves to be co-extensive in scope and duration wit space and with time. "20 Thefirststory represent Ballard's broadest vision of time, describing the process of the great cosmic cycle, the evolution of the universe: beginning as primal gas and dust, the cosmos proceeds through a material, temporal stage to become ultimately a disembodied wave of ideation which approaches pure sentience only to collapse upon itself, disintegrating into a debris of energy out of which the next cosmic cycle begins.

Robert Kerans, is from north to south, from rationality to instinct, from the conscious to the unconscious, and from serial time toward cosmic time. At the beginning of the novel, Karens is still a full participant in the scientific/military expedition of which he has been a member for three years, as it has moved northward across the drowned A Catechism of Cataclysm 47 European continent. But already the initial signs of Kerans's inner transformation are manifesting themselves: he has begun an "unconscious attempt to sever his links with the base" (8); he realizes that he has reached "a concluding phase of his own life—a northward odyssey" (9); and he begins to discern the emergence of "a personality that had remained latent during his previous adult life" (11).

The handful of human settlers who also occupy the planet, engaged in scientific and commercial endeavors, are entirely oblivious to the higher pur- The Dimension of the Disaster 25 poses the planet serves until the discovery of the megaliths by two of their number, Mayer and Tallis. Mayer embodies the kind of ego-consciousness with which we are familiar from other Ballard stories. He is ruthlessly ambitious, materialistic, utterly indifferent to the spiritual significance of the megaliths, concerned only with their potential for commercial exploitation as precious metal.
