Martin Luther King was assassinated on April 4th, 1968. Based on the recent declassification of FBI files regarding this case, Antonio Muñoz Molina reconstructs the crime, escape, and capture, in his latest novel, Como la sombra que se va. This thrilling account leads us into essential topics of universalliterature, which he will discuss with writer Colm Toibin, such as the difficulty of faithfully recreating the past, the fragile character of an instant, the construction of identity, the accidental as the engine of reality or the vulnerability of human rights.

"Brooklyn held me spellbound. Tóibín has a gift that Tolstoy and Chekhov have also been credited with: a seeming ability to render real life, undiluted and unornamented, on the page." - Bloomberg News
