Item description for El Hombre Sentimental by Javier Marias...

"El hombre sentimental is a love story in which love is not seen nor lived, but calls out and remembers," says Javier Maras in this novel's epilogue. Len de Npoles, a famous opera singer, narrates a story that took place four years ago while he was in Madrid rehearsing for Otello de Verdi. The principal characters are the mysterious and melancholy Natalia Manur and her banker husband, the unflappable and obliging Mr. Dato.

Blurb in Spanish:

Un famoso cantante de opera, conocido como el Leon de Napoles, es el encargado de contar esa historia sucedida cuatro anos atras, durante una visita a Madrid para ensayar el Otello de Verdi. Los personajes son la misteriosa y melancolica Natalia Manur; su marido, el banquero Manur; el imperturbable y obsequioso seor Dato, acompanante de profesion. A su alrededor se mueven otros secundarios: una puta apresurada, una vieja gloria de la escena operistica, un minucioso viudo, un antiguo amor.

Es una historia de pasiones llevadas hasta las ultimas consecuencias, que en este fin de siglo solo son verdaderamente ultimas para el hombre sentimental, que parece ser el artista o el pensador, pero que tal vez sea, por el contrario, el hombre de negocios, el hombre de accion.

En este libro, que contiene una declaracion de amor gravemente encendida, el autor no ha renunciado a la ironia, a la leve burla implicita de sus heroes, a los que no puede evitar tomarse muy en serio y algo a broma al mismo tiempo, mientras el ritmo se acelera progresivamente hasta un inesperado desenlace.
