What if Henry James — the patron saint of convolution — could be resurrected? What if he wrote a novel of espionage so complex it became a trilogy? The great Spanish writer, Javier Marías, has stepped in and taken on the epic task. In this conversation about the concluding volume of Your Face Tomorrow, a hilarious and brilliant book, we follow some of its literary loops and whorls. (Part II airs February 25)
