Born in Barcelona in 1948, Enrique Vila-Matas is widely considered to be one of Spain's most important contemporary novelists, and Dublinesque has been declared his masterpiece. His extraordinary oeuvre, translated into 30 languages, includes Bartleby & Co, Montano (longlisted for the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize) and Never Any End to Paris (a finalist for the Best Translated Book Award).Review:
"One of the most pleasurable and joyous novels of the year" -- John Self Independent "A brilliant, funny novel; an expertly woven tapestry of literary allusions... Enrique Vila-Matas has created a masterpiece" -- Jacqueline McCarrick Times Literary Supplement "Hugely entertaining...Vila-Matas enjoyed himself writing Dublinesque, that is obvious, and the reader will also enjoy - and collaborate in - this delightful literary exercise that is clever without being knowing, lightly erudite but never pretentious" -- Eileen Battersby Irish Times "Vila Matas's novel is full of spectres, absences, near-misses... Like Becket, it is apocalypse without the drama... Dublinesque is a postmodern meditation on a high modernist text, full of cryptic crosses between fiction and reality" -- Terry Eagleton London Review of Books "An extremely clever book, an obvious affection response to Joyce, to Ulysses , to all serious literature" -- Kevin Breathnach Totally Dublin
