Admired by Bolaño, Ashbery, Sebald, and Coetzee, Javier Marías is widely considered one of Spain's greatest living writers. Poison, Shadow, and Farewell brings to a close Marías's three-part novel Your Face Tomorrow.

With its heightened tensions between meditations and noir narrative, Poison, Shadow, and Farewell takes Jacques Deza back to Madrid to both spy on and try to protect his own family, and into new depths of love and loss.
