In the Night of Time: A Novel

'“A vast, architectural novel.” —NPR.org   “What is remarkable about the book, despite the emphasis on the private and the shadowy, is how much Muñoz Molina manages to say about the world itself and how hypnotic his narrative becomes as he slows down time. . . . He can have his protagonist contemplate his own past in slow and searching tones; he can have him consider his lover’s body with mesmeric grace; he can have him ponder his need to escape with urgency; he can have him consider architecture with originality. . . . Muñoz Molina, in all his fiction, has a sense of the past as a living force, darting, shifting, haunting, impossible to pin down. . . . In In the Night of Time he brings this perception further, allowing the most private inner moments to have greater importance than the war outside, and he approaches character with even greater tenderness, allowing for every type of weakness.” —Colm Tóibín, The New York Review of Books   “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.” —The Daily Beast   “A story of love, violence, and politics . . . [In the Night of Time echoes] Molina’s earlier works, including the much-praised ‘A Manuscript of Ashes.’” —The New Yorker   “A fascinating read.” —Typographical Era   “A sweeping, mesmerizing tale that weaves seamlessly between Spain and America, present and past, personal and political.” —Bustle.com   “Superb . . . A simple love story at one level, a broad portrait of a nation in flames at another, and a masterwork through and through.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review   “A large rough-cut gem of a story that lingers in one’s mind . . . [Molina] appears to be finally getting the international attention he deserves.” —Booklist, starred review   “Antonio Munoz Molina’s ‘In The Night of Time’ is a sweeping love story enveloped by the horrors of the Spanish Civil War. . . . In this monumental book, Molina has described with brutal honesty the atrocities committed on both sides of the war.” —The Post and Courie'
