Brooklyn By the Book: Javier Marias
Thus Bad Begins by the great Spanish novelist Javier Marías is the story of a couple living in the shadow of a mysterious, unhappy history, and the punishments we exact on those we love. Juan de Vere, a university student, takes a job as personal assistant to a man he idolizes: Eduardo Muriel, a once-successful film director. Over time, de Vere finds himself ever more deeply involved in the central mysteries of the Muriel household: why the director so cruelly rejects his beautiful wife, Beatriz, and what foul deed has been committed by family friend Jorge Van Vechten--a deed Muriel has charged de Vere with investigating. Writing in his signature intoxicating style, Marías explores rancor, suspicion, loyalty, trust, and the infinitely permeable boundaries between the deceptions perpetrated on us by others and those we inflict upon ourselves.
