In Javier Marias' 'The Infatuations,' all is not what it seems
Is adultery a kind of murder that causes ex-spouses and old lovers to be expunged from our lives, as if they'd never existed? Are novelists akin to rogue detectives or perhaps morticians, possessed with godlike powers: creating make-believe people, killing them off, then exhuming their corpses for clues about their character?
