ISBN-13: 978-0811219297. The first 150 pages of the first book was very difficult for me to read. Staying awake for each word was very difficult. Eventually my mind became trained to stay awake and the book became easy to read. It is mainly an inner story about a man working for a secret organization.

Your Face Tomorrow book. Mostly I am I just finished the third book in this absolutely amazing trilogy. He is absolutely brilliant. I first read A Heart So White and was hooked. The Your face a Tomorrow trilogy is a commitment and I read the three books, not back-to-back, but over a period of about three years. They flow perfectly from one volume to the next and it is impossible to forget the story line because of the way the early action is woven into the later.

Javier Marías, Margaret Jull Costa (1997).

The three volumes of Javier Marías's masterpiece Your Face Tomorrow, in a shrinkwrapped paperback set.

Few books in recent decades have excited the interest of readers and the raves of reviewers like Javier Marías’s Your Face Tomorrow: “This brilliant trilogy must be one of the greatest novels of our age” (Antony Beevor, The London Sunday Telegraph). Now available complete―all three paperback volumes in a shrinkwrapped set―Your Face Tomorrow in its full trilogy, one of the greatest literary masterpieces of our time. In Volume 1, Fever and Spear, Marías returns us to the rarified world of Oxford (the delightful setting of his All Souls and Dark Back of Time), while introducing us to territory entirely new―espionage. Our hero, Jaime Deza, separated from his wife in Madrid, is a bit adrift in London until his old friend Sir Peter Wheeler―retired Oxford don and semi-retired master spy―recruits him for a new career in British Intelligence. Deza possesses a rare gift for seeing behind the masks people wear. He is soon observing interviews conducted by Her Majesty's secret service: variously shady international businessmen one day, would-be coup leaders the next. Seductively, this metaphysical thriller explores past, present, and future in the ever-more-perilous 21st century. This compelling and enigmatic tour de force from one of Europe's greatest writers continues with Volume 2, Dance and Dream. The book now takes a wild swerve in this new volume. Skillfully constructed around a central perplexing and mesmerizing scene in a nightclub, Dance and Dream again features Deza, who discovers the dark side of his new employer when Tupra, his spy-master boss, brings out a sword and uses it in a way that appalls Deza: You can't just go around hurting and killing people like that. Why not? asks Tupra. Searching meditations on favors and jealousy, knowledge and the deep human desire not to know, violence and death play against memories of the Spanish Civil War as Deza's world becomes increasingly murky.Volume 3, Poison, Shadow, and Farewell, with its heightened tensions between meditations and noir narrative, with its wit and and ever deeper forays into the mysteries of consciousness, brings to a stunning finale Marías’s trilogy. Acclaimed as “exquisite“ (Publishers Weekly), “gorgeous” (Kirkus), and “outstanding: another work of urgent originality” (London Independent). Poison, Shadow, and Farewell takes our hero Jaime Deza―hired by MI6 as a person of extraordinarily sophisticated powers of perception―back to Madrid to both spy on and try to protect his own family, and into new depths of love and loss, with a fluency on the subject of death that could make a stone weep.

Loved these books. IMO, for the full effect, they should all be read in order. The first 150 pages of the first book was very difficult for me to read. Staying awake for each word was very difficult. Eventually my mind became trained to stay awake and the book became easy to read. It is mainly an inner story about a man working for a secret organization. Because he has the ability to see the truth and not turn away, his main job is to clandestinely monitor interviews and report what he sees. His work changes him, maybe it will change you. Most likely you can find well written and thoughtful reviews of Your Face Tomorrow online or in a literary review. Check one or two out. These books require a commitment, so it's worth finding out what you are getting into. I am glad I persevered. There is much ugly truth in this book and in our world, not a pretty picture.

This author has a high reputation, frequently mentioned as deserving a Nobel prize, and I have enjoyed other Spanish authors in translation so when I saw a three-volume set of this lengthy novel advertised at a discount I bought it. Unfortunately I cannot finish it. I'm not sure whether it is my dislike of the main character that is responsible: I can't help feeling that someone who writes so approvingly of a self-satisfied supercilious intellectual must be tainted by the same character faults. I'd have to read more novels by the author to decide, but I find these novels such hard going that I am unlikely ever to try another. Still half-way through the second novel of the trilogy I occasionally pick it up to try again, but I am usually too bored to continue by the time I have found the place I had reached the previous time. There are very few books I have bought that I leave unfinished but this set looks as if it will join the list. I give it two stars rather than one because there are flashes of brilliance in the writing that shine through the murk. But not enough of them. Not nearly enough.

Best novel I've read in a long time. You need a quiet place to read, however, just to soak up the vast array of ideas flying at the reader from one page to the next. Reminds me of how novels can truly be a powerful force in society.

This is Marias masterpiece, in spite of its downfalls: it may be too long for its own sake. It encompasses all Marias ever tries to do (succesfully) in his other novels, it may not be for everyone, but reading the first part or even the first and the second part won't do, you will need to invest yourself in 1500 pages of complicated prose to understand what it's all about. With Sefarad (Spanish Edition) these two books are probably the best novels written by spanish writers so far in the 21st century.
