A new, exhilarating collection of critical and personal writings--spanning more than twenty years of work--from the internationally renowned author of The Infatuations and A Heart So White. A Vintage Books Original. Javier Marías is a tireless examiner of the world around us: essayist, novelist, translator, voracious reader, enthusiastic debunker of pretension, and vigorous polymath. He is able to discover what many of us fail to notice or have never put into words, and he keeps looking long after most of us have turned away. This new collection of essays--by turns literary, philosophical, and autobiographical--journeys from the crumbling canals of Venice to the wide horizons of the Wild West, and Marías captures each new vista with razor-sharp acuity and wit. He explores, with characteristic relish, subjects ranging from soccer to classic cinema, from comic books and toy soldiers to mortality and memory, from "The Most Conceited of Cities" to "Why Almost No One Can Be Trusted," making each brilliantly and inimitably his own. Trenchant and wry, subversive and penetrating, Between Eternities is a collection of dazzling intellectual curiosity, offering a window into the expansive mind of the man so often said to be Spain's greatest living writer.

When the friendly Colin Maudsley stops to change her flat tire, American widow Laura Johnston is enchanted with his boyish charm and English manners. Colin soon works his way into her heart by offering to repair the thatched roof of a treasured cottage on her farm. Wounded in spirit by her husband's long illness and death, Laura finally finds with Colin her zest for life again. But is Colin really who he appears to be?

Poet Marjorie Gunthardt has always felt strongly about something, whether it be the pain of losing a child to the blessing offered at breakfast. She has channeled these feelings into this two-volume book of high-spirited verse, addressing essential subjects that have given her life meaning. Her work has a universal quality that makes something old into something new, something common into something uncommon. Each poem expresses sentiment without being sentimental. The first volume, Poems for Survivors, casts topics in a serious tone, driven by personal losses during Majorie's early years, including experiences during World War II. In this collection, Marjorie also writes about places she has lived: Cape Cod, New York, Paris, and Zurich, all of which she has called "home." The second volume, Between Eternities, is characterized more by humor, turns of phrase, and buoyancy. As Marjorie has grown older, her inner voice has grown younger and creatively observant. You'll delight in how Majorie sees reality, aging, family image, and keeping pace with life. Both collections spring from Marjorie's pure, creative joy. You'll read and re-read these collections for their literal and figurative depth, often stopping, smiling, and perhaps exclaiming, "How true!"
