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.
A rich, panoramic portrait of Spain
on the brink of civil war, In the Night of Time details the passions and tragedies of a country tearing itself apart. Compared in scope and importance to War and Peace,
Muñoz Molina's masterpiece is the great epic of the Spanish Civil War
written by one of Spain's most important contemporary novelists.
