«No soy el primero ni seré el último escritor cuya vida se enriquece o condena por causa de lo que imaginó y escribió. »

Pero quizá ninguno haya visto su realidad invadida por los angeles ficción como Javier Marías, ni a tantas personas comportarse como personajes suyos, ni se habrá diluido tanto entre sus propias páginas, ni se habrá convertido en el heredero de un reino legendario que sin embargo figura en los mapas.

Poco podía imaginar el autor de esta "falsa novela" que con su obra Todas las almas iba a poner en marcha un mundo que yacía dormido o que transitaba sólo por los angeles Negra espalda del tiempo que suele estar oculta y no verse. Un mundo en el que todo cabe, lo impensable y lo que trae el destino, l. a. inverosimilitud y los angeles gracia, los angeles aventura y el infortunio, l. a. bala perdida en México y una maldición en l. a. Habana, un piloto mercenario y tuerto al que los angeles muerte pasaba de largo siempre, y los velados recuerdos de un narrador que se hace más misterioso cuanto más reflexiona y cuenta.

La voz de Javier Marías es aquí más sobrecogedora que nunca, como si fuera "una voz antojadiza e imprevisible pero que conocemos todos, l. a. voz del tiempo cuando aún no ha pasado ni se ha perdido y quizá por eso ni siquiera es tiempo".

"63 After further inquiries by Columbia Secretary Fackenthal they elaborated that apart from said book four other novels had also made the jury's short list. Yet The Store, as it was stated verbatim "was selected chiefly because of its sustained interest, and because of the convincing and comprehensive picture it presents of life in an inland Southern community during the middle eighties of the last century.

XXX As one of the jurors of the previous year, Richard Burton, was suspected of having spilled out the decision of the jury beforehand, 52 he was not reappointed in 1930. The new jury (Jefferson B. Fletcher, Robert M. Lovett and Albert B. Paine), though, had problems in agreeing on a clear favorite for the prize. " Whereas juror Albert B. Paine chose the book by Thomas Wolfe, Jefferson B.
