The hypnotic new novel about Martin Luther King's assassin, by one of Spain's most important contemporary authors

About the Author

Antonio Munoz Molina is the author of more than a dozen novels, including In the Night of Time (also published by Tuskar Rock), Sepharad, and A Manuscript of Ashes. He is the recipient of numerous prizes and awards including Spain's National Narrative Prize, the Planeta Prize, and the Principe de Asturias Prize. He lives in Madrid and New York City.


Antonio Munoz Molina is a true original and has written a book unlike anything else: part fiction, part memoir, part meditation, in which the interiority of a murderer on the run - and not just any murderer but James Earl Ray, the assassin of Martin Luther King - is set against the interiority of the writer, when young, trying to find his voice. The stories of the killer and the writer circle each other, interrogate and echo each other, and then diverge. A novel is a kind of refuge too, Munoz Molina suggests. Only one of the two men in this terrific book will find the refuge he seeks. -- Salman Rushdie
Exhilarating ... exceptional ... a necessary novel -- Adam Feinstein * Financial Times *
Praise for In the Night of Time: 'Sweeping, magisterial ... an astonishingly vivid narrative that unfolds with hypnotic intensity by means of the constant interweaving of time and memory ... Tolstoyan in its scale, emotional intensity and intellectual honesty * Economist *
An immense, luminous panorama ... one of the many wonders of this novel is how Molina integrates the personal so closely with the political ... compellingly seductive * Independent *
