"Gabriel García Márquez meets Umberto Eco meets Jorge Luis Borges for a sprawling magic show."&;The New York Times Book Review

A New York Times Bestseller

Barcelona, 1945: A city slowly heals in the aftermath of the Spanish Civil War, and Daniel, an antiquarian book dealer&;s son who mourns the loss of his mother, finds solace in a mysterious book entitled The Shadow of the Wind, by one Julián Carax. But when he sets out to find the author&;s other works, he makes a shocking discovery: someone has been systematically destroying every copy of every book Carax has written. In fact, Daniel may have the last of Carax&;s books in existence. Soon Daniel&;s seemingly innocent quest opens a door into one of Barcelona&;s darkest secrets--an epic story of murder, madness, and doomed love.

&; Anyone who enjoys novels that are scary, erotic, touching, tragic and thrilling should rush right out to the nearest bookstore and pick up The Shadow of the Wind. Really, you should.&;&;Michael Dirda, The Washington Post

"Wonderous... masterful... The Shadow of the Wind is ultimately a love letter to literature, intended for readers as passionate about storytelling as its young hero."&;Entertainment Weekly (Editor's Choice)

"One gorgeous read."&;Stephen King
