Allow me to be cinematic Imagine me with a Montepulciano handy; my right leg could be pistoning but I am not the type; my soul is on fire I am that type Have you been there after you close the book but before you shelve it wanting everyone to read it right now; wanting to start again from the very first page; not wanting to let go tis tis tisThis is an old man's story and a younger man's life There was a drop of blood in Vol 1 There was a drop of blood in Vol 2 In Vol 3 the first drop is explained But it takes all three volumes to explain it all For Blood is a wound; but it is also history and it is also genealogy The old man Peter Wheeler is an old spook The younger man our author as protagonist is guided by Wheeler's avuncular wisdom his Socratic dialogue The younger man Jacues Deza has extraordinary interpretative skills And he is well paid for them So was Wheeler in the day The day being the Spanish Civil War and World War II Wheeler was friends with Ian Fleming Intrigued yet But this is not just some spy novel The 'Z' in 'Deza' is pronounced in Spanish as 'TH' So he is 'Deatha' There is death here and rank violence There are references to the killing of women in Ciudad Juarez cue Bolano's 2066 and a compilation DVD of the worst of human nature But the history in Wheeler's genteel cardigan reminiscences are every bit as cruel; and just how the Hell do we stop that Tell me now why according to you one can't go around beating people up and killing them You've seen how much of it goes on everywhere and sometimes with an utter lack of concern So explain to me why one can'tI can't or won't give you a summary There are two acts of violence and a lot of dialogue fueling three volumes In Volume 2 it takes our protagonist 150 pages to go to the men's room Such are the tangentsI want you to read this If one third through the first volume you hate me and pitch this out the window I completely understand If you trust my reviews stay with itI now own certain Spanish idioms A saying It is easy to be wise a toro pasado once the bull has passedAnd to you te conosco mascherina you don't fool meWhat are the prizes Give them to Marias tis tis tis

There's a select group of novels in my reading history the first time I read them I would occasionally become deeply envious of people who hadn't started them because that meant they had something amazing to look forward to The first time it happened was with War Peace It also happened with The Magic Mountain Gravity's Rainbow although I was sick when I read it so it might have just been a fever The Tenant of Wildfell Hall and Gerard Woodward's sort of memoir trilogy That's not to say all of these books are eually good and certainly not that they have much in common Anyway I got that feeling with this volume of Your Face Tomorrow Like many of the above books it'll probably take three or four reads before I really have any idea what this is even about but my best guess so far is 20th century 'total' warfare leads us to be suspicious of language and thought Thanks to this suspicion and a possible cultural decline we are decreasingly able to use these things properly and those who are able to use them properly often end up using them for pretty obviously evil or self interested acts This gets very self reflexive for a novelist particularly one like Marias who accurately believes that he can use language and thought well In the hands of a lesser man or woman the book would end up feeling like a novelist's lament for the art of the novel in which the real world is little than a tool used to talk about books With Marias though we're given a book which reminds us that novelists are people too; like the rest of us they're concerned with ideas and thoughts and knowing other people Instead of being another navel gazing disuisition on the impossibility of modernist literature in a post modern world then we get a book about what it's like to live in a world that makes it difficult to take important things including but not limited to modernist literature seriously But just by being one of those important things Your Face Tomorrow reminds us that we can be serious people Also Maria Jull Costa is the best translator I know Amazing work
