The story asks the reader to question time. Amazon Inspire Digital Educational Resources. How do we perceive the passage of time? The jxvier are great. Jul 03, Dominic Stevenson rated it liked it. The stories were good, kind of discursive in ways that made me think I knew Jwvier, or at least contemporary Spanish lit better, to know if this was something distinct about him or merely part of a tradition I, in the lean world of MFA workshops, I’m uneasy adopting.
However the cover art is a great deal better than the usual ghastly black and white covers I’m used to seeing from ND, so I’ll give them credit for that.
Amazon Second Chance Pass it on, trade it in, give it a second mienhras. The writing is beautiful and haunting.
A confident story in the mature voice of JM, a story of confident tentativeness. However, I did like the creepiness of the stories, whether it was due to a paranormal element or simply the weirdness of human nature.

It might be the wrong place to start with Marias, given that it’s stories, and I think he’s better known for his novels. It was sort of dark, lots of death and ghosts.
Hardcoverpages. It’s not like I thought this was terrible– these wry stories of doppelgangers, ghosts, and other magical realist elements felt a little too familiar to me, to be honest. Whether it’s a difference in translation, culture, or age, the stories don’t read like contemporary fiction, but more like something written in the late 19th or early 20th century.
A story that differs somewhat is “Gualta,” in which a young, charming, highly successful man encounters a colleague in the same corporation who is exactly the same as the narrator. Death and the erotic feature in almost all of these stories, but only in a detached and highly mediated fashion — sex, killing, and dying are never described firsthand, only reported or alluded to.
It’s a collection of short stories spanning over 30 years of writing.

Mientras ellas Duermen.: Javier Marias: : Books
This collection of ten short stories ranges mariaas the earliest works of Javier Marias to stories that are very modern in their outlook. He begins to consciously change his appearance and behaviour to differentiate himself. Entertaining gothic stories interspersed here and there with typical interesting Mariasian thoughts on language and identity. May 04, Mike Puma rated it really liked it Shelves: In both stories the narrator does most of the listening, the other person is the one with a story to tell.
I feel like I’d heard a lot about Marias, but when I got to the library, this was the only title that seemed familiar. The story is slow to develop, but high in tension and discomfort. Some disturbing, some spooky short stories. Interesting, but not overly impressive.
