Marâia Dolz falls madly in love with Miguel Desvern--or maybe Deverne--a married man whose name she only learns when she sees the newspaper account of his murder, in a novel about the effects of falling in love, both good and evil.

Perseus Publishing
Esta es una novela de gran ambición literaria y que el autor describe así: “Se trata de una historia sencilla y de una novela bastante menos sencilla, por no decir compleja, aunque mucho menos que Tu rostro mañana. Como el título indica, habla del estado de enamoramiento, considerado casi universalmente como algo positivo e incluso ‘redentor’ a veces, tanto que ese estado parece justificar casi todas las cosas: las acciones nobles y desinteresadas, pero también los mayores desmanes y ruindades. Pero no sólo se habla de eso en Los enamoramientos, también es un libro sobre la impunidad, y sobre la horrible fuerza de los hechos; sobre la inconveniencia de que los muertos puedan volver”. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION “The last time I saw Miguel Desvern or Deverne was also the last time he saw his wife, Luisa. This was not only strange, but perhaps also unfair, since she was just that, his wife, and I was just a stranger…” Los enamoramientos, Marías’ latest work, is a reflection on the state of infatuation, considered as something positive and even redeeming to the extent of justifying all: the most noble and selfless actions but also the largest excess and abuses. It is also a novel on the impossibility of ever knowing the truth, not even our own.
