9780099448488: All Souls

At High Table in an Oxford College, the pretty, young tutor, Clare Bayes attracted all eyes, not least to her fetching decolletage. No one's eyes were sharper, however, than those of the visiting Spanish lecturer, invited as a guest on this occasion. In due course, the two young people were lovers, unbeknown to Clare's husband, Andif the spaniard was at pains to cover their tracks, his beloved left evidence of adultery with gay abandon - and all this in a university that was a forcing house of gossip and intrigue, a place where 'at every word a reputation dies'. This affair between the canny Latin and the flightly English woman forms the central thread in a brilliantly-wrought tapestry of Oxford life, at once affectionate in its insight and hilarious in its ironic portrayals of Senior Common Room worthies.

About the Author:

Javier Marias was born in Madrid in 1951 and published his first novel at the age of nineteen. In addition to seven other novels (which have won him the Herralde de Novela and the Ciudad de Barcelona prizes, and the Spanish Critics' Award, and some of which have been translated into several languages) he has written a volume of short stories and a collection of essays. He is also a highly practised translator into Spanish of English authors, including Conrad, Stevenson, Hardy, and Laurence Sterne. He has held academic posts in Spain, the United States (where he was visiting professor at Wellesley College) and in Britain, as Lecturer in Spanish Literature at Oxford University.

Review:

A dazzling example of the Oxford novel. -- Michael Kerrigan, Times Literary Supplement

Probably the wittiest novel set in British academia since David Lodge wrote Changing Places. -- Corinna Honan, Daily Mail

The most subtle and gifted writer in contemporary Spanish literature. -- Boston Sunday Globe

The most talented Spanish author alive. -- Il Messagero

[A]lmost as intricate as The Sacred Fount or Pale Fire... read it. -- Irving Malin, The Hollins Critic, April 2001

[C]rackles with deliciously sly observations of Oxford mores. -- James Woodall, The Independent
