This extraordinary collection of short stories is, sadly, the last work of best selling author Carlos Ruiz Zafón.  Zafón died in June 2020.  His four novels - Shadow of the Wind, The Angel's Game, The Prisoner of Heaven and The Labyrinth of the Spirits were all international bestsellers and these eleven short stories, created by a master storyteller, return to the Gothic world of those novels known as the "Cemetery of Forgotten Books Quartet".

This brilliant novel imagines the fascinating life of German writer Thomas Mann (The Magic Mountain, Death in Venice).  Tóibín, the author of such novels as Brooklyn and The Master, weaves Mann’s family life and his working life into a vivid story of great highs – the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1929 and lows  - the suicides of his two sons and fleeing the Nazis.  Yet Mann, steady and stoic, comes alive in this complex and beautifully written book.
