Podrobný popis:

Ruiz Zafón's novel, a bestseller in his native Spain, takes the satanic touches from Angel Heart and stirs them into a bookish intrigue ŕ la Foucault's Pendulum. The time is the 1950s; the place, Barcelona. Daniel Sempere, the son of a widowed bookstore owner, is 10 when he discovers a novel, The Shadow of the Wind, by Julián Carax. The novel is rare, the author obscure, and rumors tell of a horribly disfigured man who has been burning every copy he can find of Carax's novels. The man calls himself Laín Coubert-the name of the devil in one of Carax's novels. As he grows up, Daniel's fascination with the mysterious Carax links him to a blind femme fatale with a "porcelain gaze," Clara Barceló; another fan, a leftist jack-of-all-trades, Fermín Romero de Torres; his best friend's sister, the delectable Beatriz Aguilar; and, as he begins investigating the life and death of Carax, a cast of characters with secrets to hide. Officially, Carax's dead body was dumped in an alley in 1936. But

discrepancies in this story surface. Meanwhile, Daniel and Fermín are being harried by a sadistic policeman, Carax's childhood friend. As Daniel's quest continues, frightening parallels between his own life and Carax's begin to emerge. Ruiz Zafón strives for a literary tone, and no scene goes by without its complement of florid, cute and inexact similes and metaphors (snow is "God's dandruff"; servants obey orders with "the efficiency and submissiveness of a body of well-trained insects"). Yet the colorful cast of characters, the gothic turns and the straining for effect only give the book the feel of para-literature or the Hollywood version of a great 19th-century novel. Publikace: Shadow of the Wind - Carlos Ruiz Zafon. Hidden in the heart of the old city of Barcelona is the 'cemetery

of lost books', a labyrinthine library of obscure and forgotten

titles that have long gone out of print. To this library, a man

brings his 10-year-old son Daniel one cold morning in 1945. Daniel

is allowed to choose one book from the shelves and pulls out 'La

Sombra del Viento' by Julian Carax. But as he grows up, several

people seem inordinately interested in his find. Then, one night,

as he is wandering the old streets once more, Daniel is approached

by a figure who reminds him of a character from La Sombra del

Viento, a character who turns out to be the devil. This man is

tracking down every last copy of Carax's work in order to burn

them. What begins as a case of literary curiosity turns into a race

to find out the truth behind the life and death of Julian Carax and

to save those he left behind. A page-turning exploration of

obsession in literature and love, and the places that obsession can

lead. Publikace: Shadow of the Wind - Carlos Ruiz Zafon. A stunning literary thriller in the tradition of Umberto Eco. The discovery of a forgotten book leads to a hunt for an elusive author who may or may not still be alive... Orion Publishing Co - "A sensation across Europe... a page-turni
