Inez

by Carlos Fuentes - £12.99  Bloomsbury Publishing (2004)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780747568162 | ISBN 10: 0747568162

Ninety-three-year-old Gabriel Atlan-Ferrara is a world-famous conductor who has given his life to music. On the eve of what may be his last public performance, he is stirred to reminisce about his past and his great love, the flame-haired Mexican diva Inez.
 
As he reflects on their tempestuous relationship, another story emerges of the first-known meeting between man and woman.
 
In this magical story of love, art, life and death, Berlioz's music for The Damnation of Faust brings Gabriel and Inez together and continues to resound on every page of this haunting work.

"Passionate... a paean to music and musical genius, to romantic love, to the mysterious sources of language and creativity... Fuentes is at his inventive best. This is language made astonishingly new."
