This is a collection of mostly short pieces I m guessing a significant number of them are from his weekly newspaper column They are pleasant often entertaining rarely profound and a bit repetitive when assembled this way One reads these not for Marias opinions which are asserted rather than supported with evidence and are sometimes fairly random but instead for the pleasure of his easy familiar delivery like sitting in conversation with an unguarded friend who watches a lot of westerns I m guessing his novels are at least a cut above this and that this is not a great introduction to understand why he is so well regarded as a literary figure La M?ditation cEst Pour Moi often said to be Spain's greatest living writ.

Marias is one of the best novelists at work today He is also apparently a tiresome bore who writes fluff for newspapers and now we have proof of this second identity in English The editors and translators try to justify farting this out into the world but the justification can only be that Marias is Marias and people like me will buy whatever he writes with a stress on the words buy whatever he writes There is very little merit to the essays they tell us little about the novels that the novels don t tell us themselves and Marias is like any other author who suddenly turns into an asshole when they leave the realm of fiction Marias seems to think he s shocking the bourgeoisie but he s just tiresome take a way the irony of fictional narration and that isn t even remotely interesting It s interesting that his most recent novel in English is so much politically and socially astute than anything he writes in these essays I do wonder what that s all about
