Paperback of “The Infatuations.”

theinfatuationsThe paperback of Javier Marias’ superb novel The Infatuations is now out.

A few months ago I wrote what turned out to be a glowing review in The Millions. Just recently, I was walking through a Barnes & Noble in Baltimore only to discover that my review became a blurb in the actual paperback. (On Amazon, you can read my quote here, too.)

Anyway, it’s kind of crazy to be be actually quoted in the front matter of a major novelist’s paperback. Pretty cool.

Oh, and buy the paperback, while you’re at it. I did, even though I had a galley already.
