into a bookish intrigue la Foucault s Pendulum The time is the 1950s the place, Barcelona Daniel Sempere, the son of a widowed bookstore owner, is 10 when he discovers a novel, The Shadow of the Wind, by Julin Carax The novel is rare, the author obscure, and rumors tell of a horribly disfigured man who has been burning every copy he can find of Carax s novels The man calls himself Lan Coubert the name of the devil in one of Carax s novels As he grows up, Daniel s fascination with the mysterious Carax links him to a blind femme fatale with a porcelain gaze, Clara Barcel another fan, a leftist jack of all trades, Fermn Romero de Torres his best friend s sister, the delectable Beatriz Aguilar and, as he begins investigating the life and death of Carax, a cast of characters with secrets to hide Officially, Carax s dead body was dumped in an alley in 1936 But discrepancies in this story surface Meanwhile, Daniel and Fermn are being harried by a sadistic policeman, Carax s childhood friend As Daniel s quest continues, frightening parallels between his own life and Carax s begin to emerge Ruiz Zafn strives for a literary tone, and no scene goes by without its complement of florid, cute and inexact similes and metaphors snow is God s dandruff servants obey orders with the efficiency and submissiveness of a body of well trained insects Yet the colorful cast of characters, the

massive sanctuary where books are guarded from oblivion Told to choose one book to protect, he selects The Shadow of the Wind, by Julian Carax He reads it, loves it, and soon learns it is both very valuable and very much in danger because someone is determinedly burning every copy of every book written by the obscure Carax To call this book Zafon s Shadow of the Wind old fashioned is to mean it in the best way It s big, chock full of unusual characters, and strong in its sense of place Daniel s initiation into the mysteries of adulthood is given the same weight as the mystery of the book burner And the setting Spain under Franco injects an air of sobriety into some plot elements that might otherwise seem soap operatic Part detective story, part boy s adventure, part romance, fantasy, and gothic horror, the intricate plot is urged on by extravagant foreshadowing and nail nibbling tension This is rich, lavish storytelling, very much in the tradition of Ross King s Ex Libris 2001
