Antonio Munoz Molina
The internationally bestselling tour de force of love and tragedy in the Spanish Civil War
An immense, luminous panorama of the Spanish Civil War ... one of the many wonders of this novel is how Molina integrates the personal so closely with the political ... he brings an encyclopedic knowledge of the times to bear ... compellingly seductive
Exhilarating ... exceptional ... a necessary novel. Edith Grossman's translation compellingly captures its depiction of the ugliness of war and the remorselessness of human memory when many in Spain, nearly eight decades on, would like to consign the civil war to oblivion.
Sweeping, magisterial ... an astonishingly vivid narrative that unfolds with hypnotic intensity by means of the constant interweaving of time and memory ... Tolstoyan in its scale, emotional intensity and intellectual honesty.
An epic...Molina's cogent examination of war on a scale both large and small reaffirms his place as a giant of Europe's literary scene, well-worth being discovered by American readers
Spellbinding ... what distinguishes In the Night of Time - what makes it eye-openingly new - is its meticulous reconstruction of Spain in 1936, its attention to detail, its fusion of history and imagination, its tension between love's surrender and war's stiff resolve. Let me put it this way: Antonio Muñoz Molina's novel is one of the most eloquent monuments to the Spanish Civil War ever to be raised in fiction.
