"Voyage Along the Horizon" revolves around an intrepid expedition: the eccentric, wealthy Captain Kerrigan, an attractive man with a shadowy past, organizes a trip to Antarctica for a select group of writers, artists, and scientists.
Amid sudden kidnappings, torrid manuscripts, Edwardian spinsters, and lethal duels, this seafaring tale is also a narrative of psychology, obsession, the writer's craft, and human nature, all of which Marias has wrapped up in an evocative, nostalgic novel that is both witty and dark. Fascinated by the question of uncertainty, Marias eschews the solution and prefers to revel in the narrative process itself, and asks the reader to consider the possibility that the truth as we know it isn't nearly as interesting as its own shadow.
From the Publisher:
Voyage Along the Horizon is an homage to the great adventure tales of the late nineteenth century. Like those stories, this one revolves around an intrepid expedition: the eccentric, wealthy Captain Kerrigan, an attractive man with a shadowy past, organizes a trip to Antarctica for a select group of writers, artists, and scientists. Amid sudden kidnappings, torrid manuscripts, Edwardian spinsters, and lethal duels, this seafaring tale is also a narrative of psychology, obsession, the writer's craft, and human nature.
Annotation:
In Javier Marias's virtuosic debut novel (written when he was 21), a band of illustrious writers and artists sets out for Antarctica on a quest to create a masterpiece based on their voyage. Full of labyrinthine prose and fanciful leaps of intellectualism, this book established Marias as a Spanish literary descendant of Joyce and Calvino--a tangled dreamweaver and idea spinner.
