Description

In an abandoned mansion in Barcelona, a young man named David Martin makes a living by writing steamy melodramas under a pseudonym. When his own novel receives scathing reviews, it seems his publishers are plotting against him, and David is destined to literary obscurity. In a locked room deep within the house he finds letters and photographs hinting at the death of the previous owner. Like a slow poison, the history of the place seeps into his bones as David struggles with an impossible love. Then he receives an extraordinary proposal from the French editor Andreas Corelli - a proposal that could make David rich and famous. And a bookseller called Sempere introduces him to the Cemetery of Forgotten Books...Prequel to the bestselling The Shadow of the Wind, The Angel's Game is a tale of lost souls and haunting shadows set amid the winding alleyways of Barcelona during the turbulent 1920s. It is a masterful tale and spellbinding love story about the magic of books and the darkest corners of the heart.

Awards

Long-listed for International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award 2011.
