Synopsis

The echo of the great characters and motifs of the novels of The Cemetery of Forgotten Books series resonates in the stories of Carlos Ruiz Zafon. A boy decides to become a writer when he discovers that his inventions hold the power to entice the rich girl who has stolen his heart... An architect flees Constantinople with plans for an impregnable library... A strange gentleman tempts Cervantes to write a book that has never existed... And Gaudi, sailing to a mysterious rendezvous in New York, delights in a spectacle of light and steam, the stuff that cities should be made of. Gathered here for the first time - and some never before published in English - these stories showcase the talents of Carlos Ruiz Zafon, a writer beloved by millions of readers and a master who has left us too soon.
