The echo of the novels of The Cemetery of Forgotten Books series resonates in the stories of Carlos Ruiz Zafon: gathered here for the first time - and some never before published in English - these stories are a celebration of one of the world's great storytellers

A boy decides to become a writer when he discovers that his creative gifts capture the attentions of an aloof young beauty who has stolen his heart.

A labyrinth maker flees Constantinople to a plague ridden Barcelona, with plans for building a library impervious to the destruction of time.

A strange gentleman tempts Cervantes to write a book like no other, each page of which could prolong the life of the woman he loves.

And a brilliant Catalan architect named Antoni Gaudi reluctantly agrees to cross the ocean to New York, a voyage that will determine the fate of an unfinished masterpiece.

A celebration of a master storyteller, beloved by fans around the world.
