Description


October 1936. Spanish architect Ignacio Abel arrives at Penn Station, the final stop on his journey from war-torn Madrid, where he has left behind his wife and children, abandoning them to uncertainty. Crossing the fragile borders of Europe, he reflects on months of fratricidal conflict in his embattled country, his own transformation from a bricklayer's son to a respected bourgeois husband and professional, and the all-consuming love affair with an American woman that forever alters his life.
Winner of the 2012 Prix Mediterranee Etranger and hailed as a masterpiece, "In the Night of Time" is a sweeping, grand novel and an indelible portrait of a shattered society, written by one of Spain's most important contemporary novelists.
