9780141389257: The Man of Feeling (Penguin Modern Classics)

A story of love and memory.
 
On a train journey from Paris to Madrid a young opera singer becomes fascinated by those in his compartment: a middle-aged businessman, his alluring wife and their male traveling companion. Soon his life of constant travel, luxury hotels, rehearsal and performance will become entangled with these three people, and the singer will find himself fatefully consumed by Natalia's beauty. The Man of Feeling is the haunting story of the birth and death of a passion, told in retrospect. Intricately interweaving desire and memory, it explores the nature of love, and asks whether we can ever truly recall something that no longer exists.

Set in Madrid, passion and power frame this sophisticated, and at times perverse, comedy of manners. "Javier Marias is in my opinion one of the bet contemporary writers." --J.M. Coetzee. Marias is winner of the Dublin IMPAC award for A Heart So White.
